It’s like asking Hamas to become Christians.
Abe Foxman is either completely clueless about the prime motivating factors behind Morsi’s thinking, that being the Koran, hadiths and sunna of Mohamed, or he’s cognizant of these factors, but like many others the thought of it is too troubling to consider, so much so, that unrealistic options and policies seem preferable.
Add to that the complete dismissal by the OIC that Islamic/Muslim inspired anti-Semitism even exists or possible, then you begin to realize the daunting challenge that exists in trying to confront it. That this anti-Semitism has fundamental Koranic/Islamic textual backing is too dreadful to consider, …so the mind wanders.
NOTE: The OIC doesn’t even recognize Islamic/Muslim anti-Semitism (Judeophobia)
Morsi Must Reject Anti-Semitism
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi’s blatantly anti-Semitic statements nearly three years ago should hardly be shocking to anyone familiar with the history of the Muslim Brotherhood movement.
In newly unearthed videos, Morsi is shown railing against Jews as “the descendants of apes and pigs,” and urging Egyptians to “nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred” for Israelis and Jews. After the videos came to light, Morsi was silent, although his spokesman attempted to explain his remarks were “taken out of context” and meant to be understood in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
This is pure hogwash, of course. Whatever Morsi may think of the conflict, the context of his comments does not and cannot ever justify the virulently anti-Jewish beliefs he espoused.
Going back to its founding by Egyptian schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna in the 1920s, the Brotherhood has a history of rejecting the legitimacy and existence of the State of Israel — and of unadulterated anti-Semitism.
So what is different now? It is that, for the first time, the Brotherhood, being the largest voting bloc in the Egyptian parliament, is today the most significant political player in the largest country in the Arab world.
