In 2009, during his Cairo speech, President Obama said:

I am honored to be in the timeless city of Cairo, and to be hosted by two remarkable institutions. For over a thousand years, Al-Azhar has stood as a beacon of Islamic learning; and for over a century, Cairo University has been a source of Egypt’s advancement….As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam. It was Islam — at places like Al-Azhar — that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe’s Renaissance and Enlightenment.

Today, we can see exactly how enlightened Al Azhar University is.

The president of Al-Azhar University, Dr. Abd El-Hay Azab, while re-opening the university dormitory following last year’s violence, demanded students read the Protocols of the Elders of Zion to get familiarity with conspiracies the nation is facing.

“I swear to God there is a new colonial war that is targeting our youth in order to destroy your country and homes with your hands,” he said, warning the youth against “institutions of fitna” (other religious institutions with different agendas), and requesting they read the Protocols of the Elders of Zion to fortify themselves against such conspiracies.

He also said, “Zionists are working for the security of Israel through [creating] instability in the region, particularly Egypt,” saying that this was a conspiracy against all Muslims and pointing out that these are conspiracies against religion in general and against Al-Azhar in particular, as they are spreading the idea that Al-Azhar is a stronghold of terrorism.

    Oh Yeah… And don’t forget to remind them to read Mein Kampf equally as informative and full of lies!

    Although I would prefer writing in ‘all caps’ I see that I can not. This is yet another example of the continued ignorance of Islam. We who are not Islamic must be aware of the daggers continuing to stab at the heart of freedom and free people.

    This man is considered an intellectual? It really says a lot about the level of the universities in Egypt. No wonder so many bright students come to the US for their education! His demand that the students read the Protocols is an invitation to fairytale anti-Semitism and anathema to the level of education that universities are presumed to provide. He is not fit to run a kindergarten.

  • arne normann I am shure said many times before; arabs deny to have any other religion or comunity above or at their sides.
    This time the president of Al Azahr university points on Israel (Zionists). Next time some other statly religious comunity of Christian accent – they need to point on in order to hide own problems, which of cours Egypt has plentyfull…
