Morsi Chanting 'Amen' to Destruction of Jews is 'Slap in Face'


The Simon Wiesenthal Center reiterated its call to President Obama to publicly condemn Egypt's new President Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, after he attended a sermon where the preacher called for the "destruction and dispersal of the Jews." A video emailed by the center showed Morsi at a mosque in the Mediterranean town of Marsa Matruh, where the congregation answers "Amen" to a cleric who recites a list of prayers in a traditional ritual.
