Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide: Mohammad Badie Calls For Holy War To "Liberate" Jerusalem

October 12, 2012

October 11, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - - Props to Steven Emerson at the Investigative Project on Terrorism for catching this.

The English online version of the Arabic news source Al-Ahram has just broken a story of considerable consequence.

Today Mohammed Badie - the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood - the terrorist organization in which current Egyptian president Morsi remains a high level functionary, called for a holy war [jihad] to "liberate," Jerusalem, Israel's capital. Badie claimed that Jerusalem was "Islamic" - a central and unifying theme held by all of the major terrorist organizations as well as Iran's mullocracy.

In Al-Ahram's translation from the Arabic, "Jerusalem is Islamic ... and nobody is entitled to make concessions. The jihad for the recovery of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims [and] will not be done through negotiations or at the United Nations."

Badie's proclamation is an unabashed call to wage Islamic jihad against the Jews. As such it is highly provocative and the clearest sign yet that under the Muslim Brotherhood's Morsi, Egypt has moved into the Iranian camp.

Historically, the Islamic claim to Jerusalem is so without merit it's ludicrous.
