The Muslim Brotherhood’s “Kill the Jews” Election Platform

Pages: 1 2

Egyptians have gone to the polls in large numbers this week to cast their votes in the first stage of protracted parliamentary elections that will stretch into early next year. Meanwhile, the country’s military rulers do not appear to be going anywhere, unless forced out by mounting street protests and outside international pressure.

Few of the hundreds of thousands of protesters who have crowded Tahrir Square in recent days would appear to trust the integrity of the electoral process, nor think it will mean greater freedom any time soon. One voter quoted by the New York Times captured the situation succinctly when he said, “It is like a play, it is like a sham. We are pretending to be voting. I know these elections don’t mean anything, but I am still going.” Another said, “There is no justice, no integrity, no confidence. But I came because then I will have done my duty, so I will ask to claim my rights.”

The main beneficiary of the elections will in all likelihood be the Muslim Brotherhood, whose leaders formed an alliance of convenience with the ruling military council to ensure that the elections would proceed as planned. The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s largest and best-organized political force, wanted no delays that would give opponents the opportunity to catch up with its organizational prowess.

We got a taste of what is to come from the Muslim Brotherhood’s co-sponsored “kill the Jews” pep rally held last Friday in Cairo. According to a report in YNet News, about 5,000 people joined the rally at Cairo’s most prominent mosque, the Al-Azhar mosque. Over and over again, the crowd chanted passages from the Koran vowing that “one day we shall kill all the Jews.”

The rally was co-sponsored by the Al-Azhar University, which President Obama had referred to as a “beacon of learning” in his June 2009 speech to the Muslim world, and by the Union of Muslim Scholars. The latter group is headed by the Muslim Brotherhood’s virulently anti-Semitic spiritual leader Youssef Qaradawi, who just happened to return to Cairo two days before the rally for the first time since his February trip when he delivered his fiery speech calling, among other things, for “the conquest of the al-Aqsa Mosque.”

The rally event, dubbed “Friday of Al-Aqsa Support,” was called to promote the “battle against Jerusalem’s Judaization,” in observance of the anniversary of the approval of the 1947 UN Partition Plan for Palestine which the Palestinians and their Islamist supporters condemn to this day.

The imam of Al-Azhar mosque, Muhammad Ahmed el- Tayeb, exhorted the crowd: “Al- Aksa Mosque is currently under an offensive by the Jews… We shall not allow the Zionists to Judaize al-Quds [Jerusalem]. We are telling Israel and Europe that we shall not allow even one stone to be moved there.”

An Egyptian newspaper, the Egypt Daily News, reported that Abdel Rahman Al-Mor, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s advisory bureau, said that “the most important step to a free Palestine is to prepare the young generation for the upcoming battle.”

Eldad Beck, Ynet’s Arab affairs correspondent, reported that other speakers at the rally delivered “impassioned, hateful speeches against Israel, slamming the ‘Zionist occupiers’ and the ‘treacherous Jews.'”

The crowd was riled up. In addition to their recital of the “kill the Jews” passage from the Koran, protesters chanted such nuggets as:

  • “Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv, judgment day has come.”
  • “Our beloved Aqsa, your sun will never set.”
  • “Islam regains its pride or we die as martyrs.”

The rally has received very little attention by Western media. Running under the banner of its newly formed Freedom and Justice Party, the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to project an image of moderation between the ultraconservative Islamist Salafis and the liberal parties whom the Brotherhood characterize as secularists wanting to reject Islam altogether. It’s as if they were adopting former President Bill Clinton’s triangulation strategy. Their audience is not only the Egyptian voters who are likely to give them a controlling number of seats in the Egyptian parliament. Their audience also includes Western leaders and opinion makers. And they are succeeding.

    We should encourage the arabs to do their best to die as martyrs. Just let them keep killing each other, that is what they do best.

    • kafir

      I agree. I get torn when I read about a so-called "honor killing". Part of me feels horrible for the poor girl who did nothing wrong, but be born into the disgusting gutter cult of islam. Another part of me figures "good. One less potential terrorist and potential terrorist producing womb".
      If each muslim were to kill one muslim a day, within two weeks the problem would take care of itself.

    I had a wonderful conversation with Muslims who converted to Christianity and came to my church…..They were very open and handed out information on why they converted, they said they had been lied to about peace, freedom, and a pathway to heaven, and were saved after they read the gospel of Jesus Christ. They knew salvation would not come to them from Allah, who promotes murder and destruction……I asked them how can it be holy to kill people, and they replied that is the big misconception….It is not Holy Jihad at all, it Tyranny!

    Even if the votes counted, they don't seem to understand in the same terms as we do the concepts of Freedom, Equal Rights, Personal Liberty and Individual Responsibility. These are foreign ideas to Islam and incongruent to its teachings. No, I don't see the ill-informed victims of Islam, it's adherents, ever truly electing to be free of it. It doesn't matter anyway. Come Hell or High Water, the M.B., with the blessing of Obama (who had Hillary say last week that she looks forward to working with them ~ the M.B.), will come to power. The bottom line is, it won't be long before we're dealing with another Ottoman Empire across the globe.

    egypt probably won't experience additional free elections after the muslim brotherhood wins this one. Instead of economic reform and creating an open society with guarantees of individual rights we will get to observe an islamized government persecute non-muslims, forcibly convert many, murder women who insist on leaving their home unveiled, and blaming Jews and Israel for all that is wrong with the country. The West has a lot to look forward to. egypt will be the sunni counterpart to iran's theocracy.

      Exactly. The MIddle East version of democracy (except in israel) is one person, one vote. Once.

  • mrbean

    The Muslims have chosen the rules of the game. Let them know in no uncertain terms what "Never Again" really means. Muslims in their own words and by their actions are committed to the genocide of the Jewish people and the destructiopn of Israel therefore, have foreited their rights to even exist at all. Kill 'em all and let Allah sort 'em out!

  • Yeshayahu Goldfeld

    The only solace Muslims are offered by their religious as well as secular dictators is the annihilation of Israel and the extermination of the Jews.The illiterate ,uneducated and poor masses of wildly incited Muslims have just this aspiration. We should pity Islam rather than be alarmed by its stupid self destruction.

  • Wee Willie

    Egypt was much better off when a kingdom. It has been a downhill slide since it has become a republic. A strong monarch can be made stronger with a democratically elected parliament.

  • montlasky

    Why o'why are we in the west so blind to the point of stupidity!!
    Is the West trying to duck the coming conflict with Islam? Are the West terrified of Islam and it's tactics? Are the West hiding under the blankets hoping that the problem will go away or by trying to appease the enemy, does the West think it will be forgiven and left alone by the conquering Islamists and that they are "not such bad chaps!"?
    Is it because Europe is already an Islamic convert? Denmark, Norway and France are changing their laws to suit the Islamists who are becoming bolder all the time with their demands for their laws to be changed in their favour on a daily basis. Europe is, to all intents and purposes a lost cause to the Islamists in their midst. Can the rest of the non Islamic world not band together to stop the rot? Do something or disappear from this planet soon. To quote Edmund Burke a political theorist of the 18th. centuary for the umpteenth time "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing". How many time must we note and quote this wisdom and do nothing?

    G-d is setting up the Jew haters worldwide for their final curtain. Things will probably get worse before they get better; but Jerusalem will remain reunited forever. The doubters in the audience should read or re-read Psalm 83 in a translation that is faithful to the Hebrew.

    P.S. The current State of Israel consists of only about 10% of The Promised Land.
    "Land for Peace" will soon take on an entirely new meaning.

    G-d is setting up Amalek for his final curtain.

    It is logical since the KORAN says Allah has created evil Jews,evil Christians and other evil folks destined for HELL


    "Does the Koran confuse Miriam/Mary,the Mother of Jesus,with Miriam,the Sister of Moses?"


    "In the Koran Allah changes some Jews into Apes for Not Respecting the Sabbath"

    • kafir

      Considering the terror guide the koran was shat from the anus of the pedophile mohamat, what difference does it make.

  • ASG

    "Like the Nazi Party​ did in the 1930s, the Iranian Islamists did in 1979 and Hamas did in 2006, the Muslim Brotherhood is embarked on a hijacking of the electoral process to subvert any chance of democratic freedoms in Egypt."

    You forgot one, the Progressive Party in the United States in the 1950's. All inspired by a hatred of Jews.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    The future of Egypt is very bleak, as they are fast running out of money. Thus, soon they will no longer be able to afford to pay for the 50 percent of the food they must import to feed their Islamic masses.

  • UCSPanther

    They may think that their new government will regain them the lost glory of the Nasser days, but their financial situation will weaken their ability to repeat those days.

    Over and over again, the crowd chanted passages from the Koran vowing that “one day we shall kill all the Jews.”

    Islam's war is against G-D and G-D's eternal, unchanging Laws.


    Islam's war was always against G-D. Huge slave trader, Mohammad, founder of Islam, murdered/beheaded several hundred Jewish men because of the Jews love for, and allegiance to Almighty G-D – Master of the Universe. The Jews refused to follow another god and the new religion of Mohammad. After they witnessed the barbaric murders, the Jews' wives and children were seized for slaves.

    It is profoundly evil to seek to give an Islamic terror state implant in little Israel to Muslims who are commanded by their Koran, to "Kill all Jews". The Koran teaches hate and violence against all non-Muslims. There is no love or mercy in Islam.

    The planned Second Holocaust extends far beyond Israel. Leaflets were distributed in major British cities which included slogans such as: "The final hour will not come until the Muslims kill the Jews."

    Britain's response? "police appeared reluctant to prosecute because the calls to fight the Jews were carefully couched in quotes from the Koran."

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    i s l a m IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    i s l a m strives for world domination.

    The q u r a n commands m u s l i m s to exercise jihad.

    The q u e r n commands muslims to establish s h a r i a h law.

    The q u e r n commands m u s l i m s to impose i s l a m on the entire world.

    i s l a m is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    i s l a m IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    i s l a m wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    s h a r i a h law is a law that controls every detail of life in a i s l a m i c society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the q u r a n is the call to j i h a d.

    J i h a d means a lot of things and is a r a b i c for battle.

    i s l a m means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    i s l a m and freedom, i s l a m and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    m o h a m e d 's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes m o h a m e d a P E D O P H I L E!!!

    And you want to base a "R e l i g i o n" on this a z s -holes rantings?

    Are you INSANE?

    I STAND with Israel

    "Freedom and Justice Party?"

    If it weren't so sick, it would be hilarious, on the order of calling the Soviet commnuist party the "Equality for All Party".
