BRUSSELS (EJP)—A Kuwaiti preacher who has reportedly made anti-Semitic statements and called for Israel’s eradication is scheduled to be one the speakers at a Muslim Fair in Brussels next month.

Tareq Al-Suwaidan is a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait and is considered to be close to Hamas, the Islamist group in the Gaza Strip.

In an April 2012 interview for Al-Quds, a TV station affiliated with Hamas, he claimed that since politicians were controlled by money and the media by the Jews, only “armed resistance” and not Western aid or Western popular sympathy could change the situation in Palestine and Jerusalem.

He also said in the interview that the most dangerous thing facing Muslims is the Jews calling them “the greatest enemy.” He later denied charges of anti-Semitism stating “We are not against the Jews, let this be very clear”…
