SWC Condemns Muslim Brotherhood Genocidal Calls Against Jews

'Yesterday's Rants May be Tomorrow's Official Policy'

November 28, 2011

The Simon Wiesenthal Center condemned genocidal rants at a rally involving 5,000 activists, convened Friday at Cairo's most prominent Mosque, by the Muslim Brotherhood.

"It is shocking to hear the Muslim Brotherhood 'activists' vowing to "one day kill all Jews" and "Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv Judgment Day is coming! But the roar of their genocidal rants was matched by a shocking silence of world leaders,"
charged Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

"Without vociferous condemnation, led by the United States, France and Germany, of such murderous hate, yesterday's rants may yet become tomorrow's official policy in a government in which the Muslim Brotherhood will surely play a pivotal role," Cooper continued.

The Obama Administration and others have entered into direct dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood and have also demanded an immediate turnover of power to civilian control.

"The failure of world leaders to hold the Muslim Brotherhood accountable for such genocidal hate on the eve of elections in Egypt, will only further embolden the Brotherhood's extremism which threatens religious minorities and could end the Egyptian-Israel Peace Treaty. The Obama Administration must take the lead in publicly demanding that The Muslim Brotherhood and its allies stop their anti-peace campaign and genocidal Jew-hatred rallies or face the end of US massive aid," Cooper concluded.
