When video came out a couple of weeks ago in which he called Jews "apes and pigs" (which the Qur'an calls them in three places, 2:63-65, 5:59-60, and 7:166), Morsi said he was quoted "out of context." Now it looks as if he is going to have more contextual issues.
Following are excerpts from an address delivered by Mohamed Morsi, which was posted on the Internet on January 10, 2010.
Mohamed Morsi: One American president after another – and most recently, that Obama – talks about American guarantees for the safety of the Zionists in Palestine. [Obama] was very clear when he uttered his empty words on the land of Egypt. He uttered many lies, of which he couldn’t have fulfilled a single word, even if he were sincere – which he is not.
Dear brothers, we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all those who support them. They must be nursed on hatred. The hatred must continue.
