For Islamic supremacists, there is no greater insult, since the Qur’an designates the Jews as “the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers” (5:82) and describes them as accursed, scheming against Allah and the Muslims, and never to be trusted or befriended (cf. Qur’an 5:51). Thus the hatred that these Muslim Brotherhood rallygoers express so offhandedly is no surprise at all. What is surprising is the bland acceptance of this hatred on the part of the American Left, even as it styles itself the moral superior of its foes, and claims to represent true compassion and charity.
“IPT Video Report: NYC Pro-Morsi Rally Blasts Saudis as ‘Dirtier Than Jews,'” from IPT News, February 13:
Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights (EADHR) has organized rallies throughout the country since last summer, demanding Muslim Brotherhood politician Mohamed Morsi be reinstated as Egypt’s president. Those rallies normally showed a degree of discipline, with chants calling for democracy and expressing love of Morsi himself, with the Muslim Brotherhood going unmentioned.
A Feb. 8 rally outside the Saudi Arabian consulate in New York City didn’t focus on the Islamist group, either. But chants and speeches in Arabic blamed the Saudis for Egypt’s political situation, with some calling on God to destroy the Saudi regime, and allegations they are trying to “sell Egypt to the Jews.”
