Al-Azhar cleric on Muslim Brotherhood website praises jihad against U.S. and Jews, “the descendants of apes and pigs”

“The Muslim Brotherhood will have a significant role to play in post-Mubarak Egypt. And that is good thing [sic].” — The increasingly clownish Reza Aslan

The Qur’an says that Allah transformed disobedient Jews into apes and pigs in three places: 2:62-65; 5:59-60; and 7:166.

“Article On Muslim Brotherhood Website Praises Jihad Against America And The Jews — ‘The Descendants Of Apes And Pigs,'” from MEMRI, September 7:

In an article published on the occasion of Ramadan on the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) website, MB member Hussein Shehata, a lecturer at Al-Azhar University, praises the jihad war against the Jews — “the descendants of apes and pigs” — in Palestine; against the Americans in Iraq; against the Russians in Chechnya; and against the Muslims’ enemies in Kashmir, Bosnia, Eritrea, and Somalia. He adds that the Day of Judgment will arrive when the Muslims defeat the Jews and liberate Jerusalem.

The following are excerpts from the article:[1]

Praising The Traits Of The Jihad Fighter

“Fasting [during Ramadan] is one of the most powerful means to educate the human spirit for jihad. Fasting involves a spiritual effort to act in a way contrary to what is accepted, and to completely abandon desires… It also schools the Muslim in patience, resilience, endurance, and sacrifice, which are all traits of the jihad fighter…

“There are similarities between one who fasts to please Allah and one who wages jihad for Allah, and we will mention several of them:

“1. Obedience to Allah is the purpose of both…: A Muslim fasts out of obedience to Allah and in accordance with his decree… [He] asks Allah to forgive his sins in the hope of being released from Hell and attaining Paradise… Similarly, the jihad fighter answers Allah’s call for jihad, hoping [to achieve] either victory or martyrdom… The purpose of one who fasts and of one who wages jihad is [one and the same] — to please Allah and to gain Paradise.

“2. Devotion is a trait of both…: Devotion to Allah is embedded in the very act of fasting… Similarly, the jihad fighter wants to please Allah with jihad, and does not do it in order to be perceived as courageous. One who fasts and one who wages jihad both require a high level of faith and fear of Allah…

Ramadan is the month of victory for those who wage jihad for Allah. Ramadan has seen the following battles, conquests, and victories: the great Battle of Badr [624 CE],… the conquest of Mecca [630 CE],… the Battle of Hattin [1187], the Muslims’ entrance into Al-Andalus [Andalusia, 710 CE], the conquest of Constantinople by Muhammad the Conqueror[2] [1453 CE], and the battle of ‘Ein Jalut [1260 CE], in which the Muslims defeated the Mongols…”

Call For Jihad Fighters To Liberate Jerusalem

“We call upon those who fast, the jihad fighters, to liberate Jerusalem: Oh fasting Muslim, know that your ultimate purpose is to answer Allah’s decree. Be devoted in your fast and honest with Allah and yourself, and do not hold back expenses for Allah. If you act thus, you will reach the level of jihad fighters in terms of payment and reward. Take this opportunity and draw close to Allah with good deeds…

“Know, oh fasting brother, that jihad continues until the Day of Judgment, and that the Day of Judgment will not arrive until the Muslims fight the Jews, defeat them, and liberate Jerusalem. Transform the month of fasting into a training camp that will aid you in jihad when the time comes. Be prepared, since the Muslims’ victories over their enemies occurred during the month of Ramadan, when the jihad fighters were fasting…”

Remember Those Who Wage Jihad Against The Jews — “The Descendants Of Apes And Pigs” — And Against The Americans

“We call upon those who fast… to remember their brothers, those who wage jihad for the sake of Allah: in Palestine, against the Jews, the descendants of apes and pigs; in Iraq, against the Americans; in Bosnia-Herzegovina, against the crusader Serbians; in Chechnya, against the Russians; in Kashmir, against the idolatrous Indians; in Eritrea, against the Zoroastrian Habeshas; in Somalia, against the arrogant Americans; and everywhere in [the lands of] the Islamic ummah, against those who fight the Muslims.

“We call on Allah to receive our martyrs’ souls, to liberate our prisoners, to rescue those who are arrested for His sake, to accept jihad from those who fast, and to let them conquer their desires and their enemies, and cause them to rejoice in the liberation of Jerusalem.”

    The more things change, the more they stay the same…or some such.
    Dr. Bill Warner, Center for the Study of Political Islam has a terrific 45 minute video lecture to offer/challenge your congregational leaders to share with your church or temple, your political leaders, educational institutions . . .make it go viral:
    A 1400 Year Secret, by Dr Bill Warner
    Islam is a history based on numbers and facts that you may not see anywhere else. Dr. Bill Warner explains why we may be afraid to see Islam for what it is based on its own doctrine and practice.

    With any luck, this video will be translated into multiple languages in another Rosetta Stone effort.

    The main reason that the Quran reads in such a negitive way about the Jewish people is in the history of Muhammad’s live he live , only for a time among the Jews and he liked them at first, but after thy reject his claim of being a prophet he then took a dislike to them that turn into hate. So he then spoke may awful and terrible wau about them . His word were written down and eventually the went into the composition of the Quran. That is the mian reason why the Quran reads as it does about the Jewish people. Furthermore, As a Christian I can keyboard that Muhammad might have been a prophet but the important thing to understand that Muhammad was not a peophet sent God, rather he was a lying deceptive prophet sent bt Satan.
    Jesus, in fact, predicted and warns about the coming of such men as Muhammad. For Jesus taught “Beware of false peophets, which come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:15. The Bible further warns that “many false prophets are gone out into the world.” First John 4;1. [KJV]

    Going on about ‘god’ and satan, makes you sound just as bad as the Islamasts. The way forward is to understand there is no god and certainly no satan. If god is all powerful as claimed he would have got rid of satan long ago.
    ‘God’ is either all powerful or ‘he’ has no power you cannot have it both ways.

    It is quite odd how the children of apes and pigs are doing so much better than the children of Allah. Why are the children of Allah immigrating in large numbers to the lands of the children of apes and pigs? The logic is not quite clear so there must be something wrong somewhere.
