Egypt’s New Capital will be Jerusalem according to Rally Leader for Egypt’s New President

“Our capitol shall not be Cairo, Mecca, or Medina, it shall be Jerusalem. Allah is willing.” –Leader of a rally held for newly elected Egyptian president, Mohammed Morsi.

He also says, “Our cry shall be: Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!” And “We are all Hamas, we are all Hamas, we are all Hamas!” The crowd chants these phrases back to him.

Then a guy starts singing about how all the Egyptians are Hamas, and how they need to brandish their weapons.

It should be noted, the man at the podium is one of the rally leaders, and not President Morsi. The man at the podium is a Muslim Cleric named Safwat al-Hegazy. The rally took place a couple of weeks ago and since then, President Morsi has distanced himself from al-Hegazy’s remarks.

But still, the fanaticism for invading Israel is disturbing.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

  1. You wrote “The man at the podium is a Muslim Cleric named Safwat al-Hegazy. The rally took place a couple of weeks ago and since then, President Morsi has distanced himself from al-Hegazy’s remarks.” Nonsense. Morsi never distanced himself from Hegazy. Hegazy is a key figure in the Freedom and Justice party and appeared on stage with Morsi many times during the recent campaigns. Morsi knew exactly what Hegazy would say — Hegazy’s job was to say those things to make clear where Morsi stands without Morsi himself saying things that would give international opponents evidence that he is indeed a violent clerical fascist.

      • Unfortunately, Adam, the translation appears to be accurate. The Christian Science Monitor and a few other news outlets are reporting on this video. What has been pointed out though is the man at the podium is not Morsi, which was already accurately presented in this blog post. Also this rally was held two weeks ago, and since then Morsi has distanced himself from these comments (you’ll notice I updated my post to reflect this).

        But still.

        The enthusiasm for invading Israel…

        It’s disturbing.
