Palestinian Historian Dr. Ibrahim Al-Sinwar: Ancient Egyptians Had the Right to Force the Jews to Work Building Pithom and Raamses; Benjamin Franklin Warned against the Jews
Following are excerpts from an interview with Dr. Ibrahim Al-Sinwar, a lecturer on Islamic history at the Islamic University of Gaza. The interview aired on Al-Aqsa TV on July 31, 2009.

Dr. Ibrahim Al-Sinwar: The claim that those who built Pithom and Raamses were persecuted is a lie. The archaeological finds have proven that they enjoyed rights and privileges, and that they did not suffer any injustice. Therefore, all the talk about persecution is incorrect. These are lies by the Jews, who have become used to not working, to being a burden on others. This has been part of their psychological makeup throughout their long history. They do not like to work. They like to have people working for them, and to receive the services.
In the modern era, an American philosopher, Benjamin Franklin, issued a strong warning to the U.S. government, in its early days, about the presence of Jews in the U.S. He said to them: "If the Jews remain in the U.S., within 100 years - or 200 years, at most - the Jews will take control of all the economic resources of the country." Then [the] Jews will be able to sit in the shade of a fruit tree in his garden, to sip a cup of coffee, to put his feet up, and wait for the Americans to come to him in the evening, in order to hand over to him the day's earnings, and what they collected from working his land, which originally belonged to them. They will have become employees working for those Jews.
I don't intend to go into all the details - some of which are incorrect, because that land is not the land of the Americans, who are themselves invaders and occupiers - but I would like to emphasize the warning about the mentality of the Jews throughout their long history. This is the mentality of people who like to have others work for them, and provide them with wealth, without any effort.
Therefore, when they were forced to work at Pithom and Raamses, making bricks to build the two cities, they viewed this as persecution. This is not true. This was merely construction work, playing an active role in the society in which they live - a society that has the right to force them to carry out this work.

And, of course, like Mein Kampf the German-American Bund's bogus Franklin quote is alive and well in the Arab world.
Funny - could’ve sworn he said Jews were lazy in one sentence and then he claimed that they were going to be taking over.
If they can do that by being lazy I’d be impressed.
Perhaps that’s why the Egyptians enslaved them. They were so successful while being lazy that the pharaoh decided that if he put them to work they’d be twice as successful.
Slavery has always been a big part of Mohammedanism, and the bloody Mohammedan moon god death cult is a descendent of the hellish religions of Ishmeel’s maternal ancestry.
It was the Mohammedan savages, for the most part, that raided African villages to capture slaves and sell them at auction.
And we all know that a working slave is a happy slave.
If they can do that by being lazy Id be impressed.
Those were my thoughts as well.
It reminds of how, during the first years of Bush's presidency, the Left would say he stole an election and was taking away all our freedoms one minute, then call him a bumbling idiot the next.
How’s that Tenth Plague working out for ya’?

Sorry for the second ping, I meant to link these two old threads. The last thread is interesting in that it recounts a similar suit brought by Egypt in the courts of Alexander of Macedonia. Of course there were no Jews in the region back then.
You might note the third link in post 8
In "Executive Orders", a deposed Vice President seeks to overturn the Presidency through the Supreme Court. Unwittingly for him, the Court states "The President of the United States" and then rules upon his request - recognizing the current President and thwarting his efforts. Clancy writes to the effect that the V.P. was never a good lawyer.
The same is true here. Dr. Ibrahim Al-Sinwar is admitting the Jews built Pithom and Raamses. Something that was denied vehemently in the past.
"What fools these mortals be"
Looks like somebody told him Ben Franklin wants to buy the Colts.
Ladies and Gentlemen. This is your brain on Islam.
Thanks, I was just about to do a little research on this but it definitely did not ring true to me for Dr. Franklin. I think that there was very little anti-Semetism in that era and that probably anti-Catholicism was more prevalent (outside Maryland).
I have serious doubts of Gaza academics being accurate on any of these subjects. Last I heard, they were still 'Ga-ga' on the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" fakery from Czarist Russia.
These little “Scientific” excursions into the “Religion of Peace” would be highly amusing if they weren’t so evil. There ARE actually people who BELIEVE this nonsense!
I watch it in the spirit of watching a Monty Python episode.
File this under “DRINKING CAMEL URINE IS GOOD FOR YOU!”
By that logic, every Muslim outside of Mecca is an invader and occupier.
Ah come on! You all know that the University of Gaza is just a party school!
Of couse they did... the Jews deserved to be slaves because according to the Palestinian Muslims "EVERYTHING IS THE FAULT OF THE JOOOooosss".
It is no wonder they hate the Jews as well as the true and living Almighty God of Israel because hey are godless men and women, who are bereft of the truth. The blind leading the blind.
And what happened to Pharaoh and his army?
One man against the inspired word of God. Many have tried and failed.
