Egyptian Justice Minister Invokes Antisemitic Tropes to Damn Terrorists Behind Cairo Bombing

Egyptian Justice Minister Ahmed el-Zend invoked antisemitic tropes in cursing the terrorists behind a bomb blast in Cairo that killed state prosecutor Hisham Barakat earlier this week.

“God Almighty will treat [the perpetrators] as he treats the Jews; they will wander through the land, a day will come where no country will accept them and they will not find a home, since there are no homelands for vileness and wickedness,” said Zend on Lebanese Sada el-Balad TV, according to Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm.

    Anti-Semitism is clearly a basic tenet of Islam, and here it shows its head again. Were it not so and had Egypt truly honoured the “peace” treaty with Israel, it could have greatly benefited from real cooperation with Israel. Instead it chose to remain the shit hole it remains like all the other Muslim countries.

    “…there are no homelands for vileness and wickedness”

    The entire Muslim world is a homeland for vileness and wickedness.

    Egypt (Sadat) made peace with Israel for 2 reasons – neither of which had anything to do with a sudden decision to like Jews.
    It was relayed to him that if there was another war with Israel – that Israel considered the Aswan Dam a legitimate military target and that it would be bombed flooding much of Egypt. The other reason was the Americans promised a shit load of cash.
