Morsi mouths ‘Amen’ as Egyptian preacher urges ‘Allah, destroy the Jews’
In footage of the service from Matrouh governorate’s el-Tenaim Mosque screened on Egyptian state television on Friday, Morsi was shown in fervent prayer as cleric Futouh Abd Al-Nabi Mansour, the local head of religious endowment, declared, “Oh Allah, absolve us of our sins, strengthen us, and grant us victory over the infidels. Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate Your might and greatness upon them. Show us Your omnipotence, oh Lord.”
The service was also attended by the region’s governor and local officials. The footage was recorded and transcribed by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute). A similar translation was published by the ADL
The ADL’s National Director Abraham Foxman complained Sunday that “The drumbeat of anti-Semitism in the ‘new’ Egypt is growing louder and reverberating further under President Morsi and we are increasingly concerned about the continuing expressions of hatred for Jews and Israel in Egyptian society and President Morsi’s silence in the face of most of these public expressions of hate.” Added Foxman, “The United States and other governments with influence on the Egyptian leadership should publicly urge President Morsi to speak out against this disturbing manifestation of hatred toward Jews.”

And rest assured, Tom, that if Hussein Obama had been sitting next to his friend Morsi, he would have said Amen, too.

Look over there!
Yes, stray comments by dipshits prove that the video must be complete bullshit.

that is because a while back an antisemitic comment on something I posted was brought up, now in that case the comment was posted well after my link here but yes I do check
also who is Israel's biggest supporter? Who is Egypt's biggest supporter? why it's the US in both cases so are we to take that Morsi wants his greatest financier destroyed?

6. Well it is not uncommen in Egypt to hear 'Death to America'
'Death to America' ..I heard it very recently during the embassy demonstrations.
Morsi ? Who knows? He is an Ex Muslim Brotherhood.
In Israel I never heard 'Death to America'
