An influential Egyptian sheikh has claimed that Egypt’s media is being run by Jews—and it’s not the first time he’s incited against them.

According to anonymous blogger Elder of Ziyon, Mohamed Mukhtar al-Mahdi, a professor at Al Azhar University in Cairo, “said that the Egyptian media is the main reason for Egypt’s political problems. His explanation is that the Egyptian media has become recently fallen into the hands of the Jews, and its slander and lies are part of the of the Zionist plan to demolish the country, as well as turn people against Islam.”

A recent video of Mukhtar al-Mahdi published by the Middle East Media Research Institute captures the cleric making a speech at Al-Azhar University in Cairo in May in which he refers to Jews as the Muslims’s “worst enemies.”

The transcript is posted below (courtesy of MEMRI TV):

Muhammad Al-Mukhtar Al-Mahdi: The Islamic nation, which is the guardian of Truth, must be aware of the conspiracies of Falsehood, and of the snares of those who lie in wait. Allah has taught [Muslims] that their worst enemies are those about whom He said: “You shall find the Jews and the polytheists to be the most hostile towards the believers” [Koran 5:82]. Thus, Allah made Jihad for His sake and endurance of pain and hardship effective means to fight the people of Falsehood…”

“The confrontation [with the Jews] is inevitable. Our Prophet does not lie. He told us that there would be a confrontation between the Muslims and the Jews before the Day of Judgment, and that the Muslims would vanquish them to the point that the Jews would hide behind the stones and the trees, but the stones and the trees would say: “Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” Prepare for that day, for it will surely arrive, because the divine revelation harbors no lies.”

    He learned his lessons well from Goebbels! Just repeat, repeat, repeat the lies you want to spread and soon the listeners ears resonate to the same lies which have become “truth”.
    If the Egyptian media is under the control of “International Zionism” it doesn’t speak very well for President Morsi’s position as head of the MB that controls Egypt! Imagine it: the Muslim Brotherhood has “sold out” its control of Egyptian media to the international cabal of Zionist press masters.
    I used to think “how could any rational person believe this kind of stuff?” The Nazis figured how quite early.

    Now the Muslim agitators pick up the same old poison and spread it around once again.

      Goebbels never said that. Hitler invented the big lie theorem in Mein Kampf.
      It required the whole bottomless falsehood of the Jews & their Marxist fighting organization to lay the blame for the collapse on that very man who alone, with superhuman energy & will power, tried to prevent the catastrophe he foresaw & save the nation from its time of deepest humiliation and disgrace By branding Ludendorff as guilty for the loss of the World War they took the weapon of moral right from the one dangerous accuser who could have risen against the traitors to the fatherland. In this they proceeded on the sound principle that the magnitude of a lie always contains a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people in the very bottom of their hearts tend to be corrupted rather than consciously and purposely evil, & that, therefore, in view of the primitive simplicity of their minds they more easily fall a victim to a big lie than to a little one, since they themselves lie in little things, but would be ashamed of lies that were too big. Such a falsehood will never enter their heads & they will not be able to believe in the possibility of such monstrous effrontery & infamous misrepresentation in others; yes, even when enlightened on the subject, they will long doubt & waver, & continue to accept at least one of these causes as true. Therefore, something of even the most insolent lie will always remain and stick-a fact which all the great lie-virtuosi & lying-clubs in this world know only too well & also make the most treacherous use of.
      P 313.

      Mr. Hitler did indeed lie, very much in fact, but here he accuses Jews of using the big lie technology. In fact, it is false because it assumes that the masses are more susceptible to repetition than the clerisy. Moreover, repetition lends credence to lies large & small with roughly equal capacity. The notion that nails grow after death, a small lie if ever there were, has been accepted by intelligent & stupid persons alike, notwithstanding its origin in a Vincent Price film.

        Exactly how was it invented? Karl Mark was a jew whose father unconvincingly converted to Christianity but came from a three year line of rabbis. The Bolsheviks were led initially by David brohnstein aka leon trotsky and a horde of jewish cronies. Was that invented? Was the subsequent murder and slaughter by gulag of 60M white Christian Gentiles as precisely documented by the russian orthodox church invented invented? Indeed the first act of law in the ussr was the banning of antisemitism and punishing it with death in a Siberian work camp.

        Do any of you “good” jews study jewish history, it aint pretty or clean even though the jewish publishing houses and media have tried thei best to tidy up the unpleasant and inconvenient truth of it all. All justified by Talmudic doctrine as well.

        You can’t hide from the truth!

            *marx, i should have spell checked, im sure you will all write it off as silly, hateful and last but not least antisemitic. Well its pretty hard to call me an antisemite seeing as I am one of your own.

      Theodor Herzl, you Jews should educate yourself about what your community leaders actually do. Dont be ignorant, educate yourselves.
