Simon Wiesenthal Center Calls on Obama to Condemn Muslim Brotherhood
The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) is calling on President Obama to publicly condemn the anti-Semitic call for jihad against Israel by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, Mohammed Badie. The SWC also called for Obama to cut off all contact with the Muslim Brotherhood until the threat is retracted.
Al Ahram, Egypt’s largest newspaper, reported Badie’s speech in which he said:
"The Jews … have spread corruption on earth, spilled the blood of believers and in their actions profane holy places, including their own."
Badie urged Muslims to confront Israel “through holy jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance … Zionists only understand the language of force and will not relent without duress.”
The SWC statement reads:
“Badie’s rant confirms our long-held view that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is the most dangerous anti-Semitic organization in the world today. We are not dealing with a Youtube video or a lone extremist Imam, but a call for anti-Semitic violence by a man who has tens of millions of followers and leads the organization thast controls Egypt’s future. It cannot be business as usual in Washington when such an assault is launched against the Jewish people. We urge president Obama to condemn the rhetoric and cut off official and unofficial US contacts with the Muslim brotherhood until they desist from their hate and warmongering.”
The SWC , which teaches the pubic about the horrors of genocide, asks the Administration that paved the way for Islamists with its support for the Arab Spring to publicly condemn the Muslim Brotherhood and cut off contacts with them?
Don’t hold your breath.
