The supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, from which Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi emanated, called on Thursday for a jihad (holy war) to liberate Jerusalem from Israeli rule.
"Jerusalem is Islamic ... and nobody is entitled to make concessions" on the Holy City, said Sheikh Mohammed Badie in his weekly message to supporters.
Members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood including now-President Mohamed Morsi (3rdL) take
part in a press conference in 2011. The supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, from which
Morsi emanated, called on Thursday for a jihad (holy war) to liberate Jerusalem from Israeli rule.
"The jihad for the recovery of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims," he said, stressing that the liberation of the Holy City "will not be done through negotiations or at the United Nations."
Israel, which signed a peace treaty with Egypt in 1979, has watched with concern as Islamists were catapulted to the forefront of politics following a popular uprising that toppled president Hosni Mubarak last year.
Morsi has repeatedly said he would respect international treaties signed by Cairo. But his former movement has also said there is room to revise the accords, without objecting to them in principle.
Hey JOE, how about that distance between the US and Israel?
ANOTHER OBAMA/BIDEN FOREIGN POLICY FAILURE !!! .... or is it ???? .. was this their true intent ?
It is sort of perfect for the mus-bros, Obama neuters the situation to the point that Israel will have no help from us if they are attacked.
May the waters of Lake Nasser soon cover them....
