Muslim Brotherhood Deputy Head To Jews: We Want You Back

The Deputy Head of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood wants Egypt’s Jews back.

But I think he’s more bananas than Bananarama.


Essam al-Erian, deputy head of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, called on Egyptian Jews to leave Israel to the Palestinians and return to their own homeland.

Their presence in Palestine contributes to the Zionist occupation of Arab lands, and every Egyptian has the right to live in his country — nobody can deny that, Erian said during an interview on the privately operated Dream TV on Thursday.

“Why did Nasser expel them [the Jews] from Egypt?” he asked, claiming that Nasser’s decision contributed to the occupation of other Arab lands.

And here I was thinking it was because they have a major building project and need the labor.

“Egyptian Jews should refuse to live under a brutal, bloody and racist occupation stained with war crimes against humanity,” Erian said.

Kind of a self-defeating argument for them to return to Egypt, I would think.

    Not before Egypt is wiped clean with fire, famine and cannibalism though.

    Perhaps he wants the Jews back because he knows how industrious, hardworking and innovative they are and can help rebuild Egypt?….Just a thought.

    Here\’s a thought. We can surely wirk with this. Egypt is happy to have its Jews back. Let\’s do the calculations – the numbers of people, all their descendants, value of property seized etc. Then, if the Jews in Israel could stay in Israel, but Egypt could take the same number of Palestenians. Just a thought……

    i think all the jews should agree to the kind offer…if it comes with compensation for their losses, when they were forcibly expelled

    this would cost the egyptian government billions

    the country and the brotherhood would implode

    jews would essentially own egypt…and then they could boot out all the arabs, sell the country to the chinese and legally buy all the fakestinian lands

    What are Egyptians? What distinguishes Egyptian Jews from other Jews? Isn\’t this based on an ideology of Egyptian racial supremacy?

    • Inessa

      I think he was referring to Jews who were expelled from Egypt, and acknowledging that they are to be regarded as Egyptian (as opposed to distinguished from Egyptians, as Jews). So, the sentiment itself is not racist.
