Muslim Brotherhood rally calls to ‘kill all Jews’


JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Muslim Brotherhood held an anti-Israel rally in a Cairo mosque that reportedly called to "one day kill all Jews."

Some 5,000 people participated in the Nov. 25 rally, during which they made the call about killing Jews — a quote from the Koran — a reporter for Israel’s daily Yediot Achronot reported from the Egyptian capital.

The rally held in the ancient al-Azhar Mosque was called to raise awareness about the "battle against Jerusalem’s Judaization," Yediot reported.

The phrase "Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv, judgment day has come" was chanted repeatedly throughout the event.

Ahmed al-Tayeb, the mosque’s imam, reportedly accused Jews throughout the world of preventing Islamic and Egyptian unity.
