A video Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi released three years ago on the Muslim Brotherhood’s YouTube channel is causing him trouble now. In the clip, he exhorts the faithful, warning against backsliding:
“We must never forget, brothers, to nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred for them: for Zionists, for Jews,” Mr. Morsi declared. Egyptian children “must feed on hatred; hatred must continue,” he said. “The hatred must go on for God and as a form of worshiping him.”
Hating Jews forever as a way of worshiping God. Lord, have mercy, but this guy who now runs Egypt is a sick, disgusting character. But wait, there’s more:
“These bloodsuckers who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs,” Mr. Morsi declared, using a slur for Jews that is familiar across the Muslim world.
Can’t imagine why the Israelis worry about their future with Egypt, or why the Israeli far right, some of whom hold the same repulsive views of Palestinians, is on the rise.
