As part of a larger statement on yesterdays killing of protestors by the Egyptian military, the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) has alleged that the killings were carried out “in cooperation with the Zionist enemies of the nation. According to the statement:
2- The terrorization of secure citizens and killing them in the manner revealed by free satellite channels, as well as cooperation with the Zionist enemies of the nation is an act of betrayal for all responsibilities entrusted to them and falls within spreading mischief in the earth.”
For the full statement go here.
The International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) was launched on July 11, 2004 in conjunction with a visit by Youssef Qaradawi to London for a meeting of the European Council for Fatwa and Research. Many prominent individuals tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood and/or Hamas serve as IUMS Trustees. Qaradawi is known to be a virulent anti-Semite who has called Hitler a divine punishment for the “misdeeds of the Jews” and said that the Holocaust was exaggerated.
The GMBDW has recently published a four part series on the anti-Semitism of the IUMS and its leaders.
