More evidence of the true nature of the Arab Spring, which I have dubbed "Spring Time for Sharia in Araby." As Reuters reports from Alexandria, the purveyors of genocidal jihad martyrdom were out in force:
In the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, Egypt's second largest city, thousands marched to the Israeli consulate after dawn prayers at one of the city's main mosques, chanting: "With our souls, with our blood, we redeem you Palestine." We are here today to show our support for the Palestinian cause," said Mohammed Abdel-Salam, a 22-year-old activist on Friday. "The victory of our revolution will not be complete without the liberation of Palestine," he added.
And these masses simply reflect the impact of what has long been inculcated among them from the Cairo pinnacle of Islamic religious education for Sunni Islamdom, Al-Azhar University -- genocidal jihad against the Jews of Israel.
Consider a fatwa written January 5, 1956 by then Grand Mufti of Egypt, Sheikh Hasan Ma'moun, and signed by the leading members of the Fatwa Committee of Al Azhar University -- Sunni Islam's Vatican -- and the major representatives of all four Sunni Islamic schools of jurisprudence. The January 1956 Al Azhar fatwa's language and arguments are indistinguishable from those employed by Hamas (in its Covenant), revealing the same conjoined motivations of jihad, and conspiratorial Islamic Jew hatred:
Muslims cannot conclude peace with those Jews who have usurped the territory of Palestine and attacked its people and their property in any manner which allows the Jews to continue as a state in that sacred Muslim territory.
[As] Jews have taken a part of Palestine and there established their non-Islamic government and have also evacuated from that part most of its Muslim inhabitants ... Jihad ... to restore the country to its people ... is the duty of all Muslims, not just those who can undertake it. And since all Islamic countries constitute the abode of every Muslim, the Jihad is imperative for both the Muslims inhabiting the territory attacked, and Muslims everywhere else because even though some sections have not been attacked directly, the attack nevertheless took place on a part of the Muslim territory which is a legitimate residence for any Muslim.
Everyone knows that from the early days of Islam to the present day the Jews have been plotting against Islam and Muslims and the Islamic homeland. They do not propose to be content with the attack they made on Palestine and Al Aqsa Mosque, but they plan for the possession of all Islamic territories from the Nile to the Euphrates.
Nothing has changed other than the removal of a temporary obstacle to these aspirations -- i.e., the Mubarak regime.
