Islamic Jihad vows to fight the Jews if they return to Egypt

Egypt is our new bestest friend in the region... outside of Turkey. Soon, Syria will be our new bestest friend. And it "feels good, for once" to be on the right side of history, doesn't it? The new right side is the one that holds the beheading knife.
(Egypt Independent) The Islamic Jihad movement has called on the Freedom and Justice Party’s Essam al-Erian to resign from his role as advisor to the president and apologize to the Egyptian people for his statement asking Egyptian Jews to leave Israel and reclaim their properties back at home.

Erian had triggered controversy over his remarks this week when he said this would pave the way for the Palestinians to regain their occupied land.

He also blamed President Nasser for deporting the Jews after the establishment of Israel.

“We shall fight them vigorously if they return, especially the Egyptian-Israeli Jews,” said Mohamed Abou Samra, the leading figure in the Islamic Jihad movement. “Islamic Sharia says they deserve to be killed.”

"And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality."
