Meet Mohammed Morsy's Jeremiah Wright
Obama's second BFF in the world, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsy, also has a virulently anti-Semitic religious guide, whose pronouncements about Jews match, if not exceed, the hatred in Morsy's own statements. Meet Mohammed Badie, spiritual guide to Mohammed Morsy, with whom Morsy continues to consult regularly.
References to Jews as "apes" and "pigs" also are repeatedly found in the speeches of the man many liberal Egyptians regard as the real power behind Morsi, Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohammed Badie. According to Germany's Der Spiegel, Morsi regularly meets with Badie and has shown that he expresses obedience to the supreme guide.
"The Zionists, the West and the lackey rulers conspired together. If the Muslim Brotherhood had remained in the field, the Zionist Entity would not have stood not its flag raised. Of old God forced the Jews to become pigs," Badie said in a July 7, 2010 sermon found on the Brotherhood's website.
Badie returned to the theme in a June 14, 2012 speech on the eve of Morsi's election.
"The Lord of Glory has threatened these murdering Zionists criminals with a penalty of a kind which operates in this world before the Hereafter," Badie said, then quoting: "So when they were insolent about that which they had been forbidden, We said to them, 'Be apes, despised.' [Quran 7:166]."
The Muslim Brotherhood's top leader cited a hadith frequently used by Islamic extremists that condones slaughtering Jews during a Nov. 20, 2012 speech captured by MEMRI.
"The cause of Palestine is of considerable importance. It is not a cause of power, nor of Palestinians, nor of the Arabs, but is the basic cause of life of every Muslim," Badie said. "For the sake of its return, every Muslim must wage jihad, sacrifice; and expend his money for the sake of restoring it.
"Palestine and Jerusalem is a holy Muslim land, part of the faith of the Muslim ummah," Badie continued. "To forsake any part of it is to forsake the ummah's civilization and faith. This is a great sin."
Agence France Presse (AFP) quoted Badie calling for a "Holy Jihad" to liberate Jerusalem from Israeli control in an Oct. 11, 2012 report.
"Jerusalem is Islamic ... and nobody is entitled to make concessions" on the holy city, said Badie in his weekly message to supporters, according to AFP.
"The jihad for the recovery of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims," he said, stressing that taking back Jerusalem "will not be done through negotiations or at the United Nations."
The "apes and pigs" motif about Jews resurfaced in November at a protest organized by the Brotherhood and its political arm, Al-Qalyubi. Preacher Muhammad Ragab called on Muslims at the protest "to raise the banner of jihad against the tyrannical, invading and wicked sons of apes and pigs [i.e., the Jews], and to unite against the enemies of Allah" during the protest.But so long as Barack Hussein Obama remains in power in Washington, we can rest assured that this type of anti-Semitism will be ignored. Maybe Jeremiah Wright will return to the White House this term?
