And he can say this openly, without any fear that anyone in Washington will take him seriously or do anything about it. “Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Calls for Jihad to ‘Free PA,’” by Chana Ya’ar for Israel National News, November 23 (thanks to Voice of the Copts):
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is calling for a jihad (“holy war”) to liberate the Palestinian Authority areas. “Jihad is obligatory” for Muslims, top Islamic cleric Mohammed Badei said, adding that peace deals with Israel are a “game of grand deception”.
Badei added that there have been enough negotiations and that the “enemy knows nothing but the language of force.” The Muslim Brotherhood and its members ““ of which Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is one ““ do not recognize and refuse to hold direct talks with the State of Israel.
The call came just one day after the Brotherhood’s former presidential candidate, who won the national election in June, sealed a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization.
Brokered by Morsi and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the agreement officially went into effect at 9:00 p.m. Wednesday night.
