“Lately, a slew of video clips have been leaking that expose radically terrifying and offensive words coming from the mouths of Egypt’s Islamic leaders,” writes Billy Hallowell of the internet news site The Blaze.

“Recently, we had Ahmed Ezz El-Arab, who said that the Holocaust was a lie and that the U.S. is responsible for 9/11. And who can forget Salafi Shaykh Muhammad Hassan’s statement that Islam prefers immoral men…or Shaykh Sa‘id ’Abd-al-’Azim’s belief that democracy is a ‘retarded’ idea?”

“Now, to add to our list of ‘Egyptian Leaders Behaving Badly,'” writes Hallowell, “we have Egyptian Shaykh Safwat Hegazy who can be seen, below, threatening Jews, Christians and the entire human race. According to Translating Jihad (TJ), he says:

“Jerusalem belongs to us, and the whole world belongs to us.” He states the Islamic caliphate will return, and that “every land upon which Islam has set foot will return to us.” He makes poignant references to Qurayza and Khaybar, which are clear threats against the Jews, and also states, “we will kill anyone who has polluted the al-Aqsa Mosque.”
