CNN Interviews With Anti-Mubarak Protesters Turn Into Anti-Israel & Anti-US Hatefest

News

"Israel is our enemy."

Alexandria is something of a stronghold for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, so maybe this did not come as a total surprise to CNN reporter Nic Robertson.

As he talked with protesters along a demonstration route he encountered a group who reveal, with great candor, some of their real motivations for opposing Hosni Mubarak. The clip takes the anti-Israel turn at the 1:30 mark:

Woman #1 sets the stage for Woman #2:

"All the people hate him.  He's supporting Israel!  Israel is our enemy. We don't like him...Israel and America supported him.  We hate them all!"

Woman #1 then explains that they will accomplish the removal of Mubarak by "revolution."

Then the guy that follows them takes it up a notch by explaining that when the people in Egypt are finally free they will be able to "destroy Israel."
