Morsi in Yet Another Video: “We Must Not Forget to Nurse Our Children and Grandchildren on Hatred Towards Those Zionists and Jews” (VIDEO)
Another video of Mohamed Morsi making antisemitic comments has surfaced. The video, which dates to 2010, shows Morsi giving a speech in which he told the audience “we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all those who support them.”
Morsi didn’t limit his remarks to attacks against Jews. Speaking of U.S. President Barack Obama he said, “He uttered many lies, of which he couldn’t have fulfilled a single word, even if he were sincere – which he is not.”
Last week videos of Morsi, also dating to 2010, surfaced that showed the Egyptian president disparaging Jews. The video drew a harsh response from the White House. On Wednesday Morsi met with several U.S. senators and claimed that his antisemitic comments were taken out of context. A spokesman for the president said Wednesday night, “Morsi assured the delegation that the broadcast comments were taken out of an address against the Israeli aggression against Gaza,”—referring to Israel’s Operation Cast Lead in 2009. The spokesman added that Morsi assured the senators he holds respect for monotheistic religions as well as for “freedom of belief and practicing religions.”
Thus far the White House has yet to issue a response to the most recent video.
The full transcript is below (courtesy of MEMRI):
Mohamed Morsi: One American president after another – and most recently, that Obama – talks about American guarantees for the safety of the Zionists in Palestine. [Obama] was very clear when he uttered his empty words on the land of Egypt. He uttered many lies, of which he couldn’t have fulfilled a single word, even if he were sincere – which he is not.
Dear brothers, we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all those who support them. They must be nursed on hatred. The hatred must continue.
