The Simon Wiesenthal Center has condemned Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi for attending a sermon in which the preacher called for the “destruction and dispersal of the Jews.”

The Washington Post reported that a video sent to the center showed the event, in which the cleric asked God to “destroy the Jews and their supporters and disperse them, rend them asunder.” Attendees were required to answer with Amen, as did Morsi.

The prayers were aired on Egyptian state TV and the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). “This is a slap in the face to America as Egypt’s President Morsi pockets billions in U.S. aid and says Amen to principles that are repugnant to all Americans,” the Wiesenthal Center said in a statement, asking President Barack Obama to condemn “the growing chorus of anti-Semitism in Egypt, led by the Muslim Brotherhood.”
