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.”
