Brotherhood Leader: We Fight the Jews, Not the Egyptians


Mohammed Badie, the spiritual leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, claimed during his trial that his movement was not against Egypt but only against the Jews.

Footage from the trial was posted to the internet and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Badie faces charges that include inciting violence during a Brotherhood sit-in at Cairo University in mid-July. He is one of 683 members of the Muslim Brotherhood who were recently sentenced to death in a mass trial.
