With the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, all eyes have turned to Egypt, a country with which Israel had once shared a cold peace but that now seems bent on the Jewish State’s destruction. TheBlaze and the Glenn Beck Program have reported extensively on the Muslim Brotherhood’s nihilistic mission and its goal to establish an Islamic caliphate. The goal of this caliphate would be to purge the Muslim world of the Western and Israeli “scourge.”
But indications all is not right in the state of Denmark — or Egypt, rather — are not isolated to Muslim Brotherhood actions, but are continuing to mount even among members of the country’s academia. Just recently on August 14th, political science professor Safwat Higazi told the Egyptian news station, Al-Kahera Wal-Nas, that with Allah’s help, “Israel will be annihilated” by 2013.
He also acknowledged the Muslim Brotherhood’s plans to establish a caliphate as if it were a forgone conclusion. The professor proclaimed that Muslims’ default is “peace” before proceeding to say that he had no problem engaging in all at war. At this point it might be prudent to note that Higazi, who is also a cleric, issued a fatwa mandating that any Israeli be shot and killed on the spot — for no other reason than that he perceives them “occupiers” of Arab land.
To this end, the professor continued: “We are constantly keeping the memory alive among the younger generations, so that they will realize that the Palestinian cause is an essential one. The hope and the memory will later turn into action. By next year, Allah willing, Israel will be annihilated.”
Oddly, the interviewer actually pressed the professor on his hypocrisy, saying that if he is truly a man of peace, how could he issue such a fatwa. The interviewer also pushed Higazi on the Camp David accords, which brought peace and stability to Egypt and Israel. The cleric said that it wasn’t Camp David, but rather Egypt’s “victory” in the 1973 Yom Kippur War that brought peace to the two nations. Of course, the Yom Kippur War, while resulting in roughly 2,800 Israeli casualties (not including the nearly 9,000 soldiers wounded), ended in a decisive tactical victory for the Israelis.
