Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood: “Israel Is Our Enemy”


muslim-brotherhood-egyptEgypt’s Muslim Brotherhood staged an anti-Israel rally in Cairo on Friday, the first such protest since the 2011 uprising. Emerging from weekly services at Al-Azhar mosque – the centuries-old seat of Sunni Muslim learning – demonstrators chanted, “the people want the destruction of Israel,” in protest of recent Israeli airstrikes in Syria and the detention of a Palestinian Muslim cleric.

At one point, leading Brotherhood member Mohammed el-Beltagy took the microphone and shouted: “Ee will repeat it over and over, Israel is our enemy.” One organizer whipped up the crowd in a chant urging the army to launch a war against Israel to “liberate Palestine…from the sons of monkeys and pigs.”
