Muslim Brotherhood Official Calls on Egyptian Jews to Return

By: JTA

A Muslim Brotherhood official called on Egyptian Jews to return to Egypt and leave Israel to the Palestinians.

Essam al-Erian, deputy head of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, put out the call during an interview late last week with television station Dream TV, the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm reported over the weekend.

Every Egyptian has a right to live in his country, Erian is quoted as saying. He also reportedly said that the Jewish presence in Israel contributes to the occupation of Arab land.

Egyptian Jews should refuse to live under a brutal, bloody and racist occupation stained with war crimes against humanity,” Erian said during the interview

Erian also questioned why former Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser expelled the Jews from Egypt in the first place.

    That ought to shut Futouh Abd Al-Nabi Mansour up. The Egyptian imam who prayed for the destruction of the Jews. Maybe Essam al-Erian realizes they are the People of the Book after all. How many other Egyptians do also? Only the ones who can read the Qu'ran? Because 37% of Egypt is illiterate.

  2. Roc Diaz says:

    its comical, we should return to egypt in which the torah explicitly says not to do, and live there because some arab fat slob says to? lol what a !

  3. Why for heavens sake? – The Egyptians haven't finished with the Christian Copts yet. Then we've got to work like slaves, bnring about 10 plagues, part the sea of reeds again – it's just too much trouble. Thanks anyway.

    I DON'T TRUST ANY GOVERNMENT OR POLITICAL ORGANIZATION, THAT IS CONTROLLED BY ANY RELIGIOUS SECT, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY DO NOT ALLOW FOR TOTAL DEMOCRACY, FOR ALL.

  5. T Joseph Saba says:

    It is just a propaganda for the Brotherhood both in Egypt and overseas.

  6. Deborah Fox says:

    Why would Egyptian Jews want to return after the Egyptian authorities closed the last operating Synagogue?

  7. All the Jews have to do is look at how badly the Christians in Egypt are treated and to believe that God has given Israel the land of Canaan. The whole world moves from trouble to trouble. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be preparing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well and Gaza seems more like an opportunity for Hamas to reload than it does a cease fire. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.
