Muslim Brotherhood Leader Denies Holocaust

Amid rumors of talks between the US State Department and the Muslim Brotherhood group , Mohammed Mahdi Akef , leader of the Muslim Brotherhood denied the Holocaust in his article published yesterday on the group's official Web site

Akef wrote: "Western democracies have slammed all those who don't see eye to eye with the Zionists regarding the myth of the Holocaust"

Alkef added" You Brothers, you are the guardians of Islamic Sharia (law) . Your main concern should be the heritage of Shariah, which you uphold.

While criticizing the Western democracy in favor of Islamic Sharia, Akef said : The sword of democracy has reached into one of the prominent businessmen, to freeze his assets " Akef was referring to Youssef Nada, a Brotherhood elder who fled Egypt in the 1960s after a crackdown on the then banned brotherhood movement, Nada is currently based in Switzerland and served for decades as the foreign liaison of the Brotherhood. He is also listed by the U.S. Treasury as a banker for al Qaeda and Hamas

Nada is also a close friend of Sheikh Qaradhawi considered to be the spiritual leader of Al Jazeera channel as well as the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Qaradhawi also invested in Youssef Nada's Al Taqwa bank, that's why Al Jazeera always portrays Nada as the victim of America's war on terrorism.

The US probably did not accept to negociate with them, so there was no need to wear masks and they showed their real ugly face.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion! I personally believe the holocaust is over hyped and largely exaggerated. But how dare I have a different opinion, dear God, free thinking in this new world order, the nerve, I should be crucified for uttering such words... oh wait, supposedly someone else was crucified 2000 years ago for having a different opinion..

Egypt’s Akef calls Holocaust a 'myth'

Muslim Brotherhood leader criticises US for imposing its will with tanks and Hummer vehicles on Iraqis.

CAIRO - The leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, the largest opposition force in the country, on Thursday joined Iran in calling the World War II Holocaust a "myth."

"Western democracy has attacked everyone who does not share the vision of the sons of Zion as far as the myth of the Holocaust is concerned," Mohammed Mehdi Akef said in a statement.

His remarks came says after similar comments recently by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who also described the Holocaust as a "myth" and called for the Jewish state to be "wiped off the map," sparking international outcry.

Akef's comments were published in a pamphlet that decried the United States and its ally, Israel, and came about two weeks after the banned but tolerated movement won a shock 20 percent of Egypt's parliamentary seats in legislative polls.

"He who announces himself party to their alliance is a 'democrat' while he who opposes methods in the fight against terrorism is a 'terrorist'," Akef wrote.

He further blasted "this American democracy, which has opened an international inquiry (into the murder of Lebanese ex-premier Rafiq Hariri) to drive a deeper divide between the Lebanese and Syrian people, while it saw no crime in the assassinations of Ahmed Yassin and (Abdel Aziz) Rantissi."

Yassin and Rantissi were both leaders of the Palestinian radical Islamist movement Hamas who were killed by Israeli operations in 2004.

A UN inquiry into the murder of Hariri was opened earlier this year and found converging evidence of top level Syrian and Lebanese involvement in the February bomb blast that killed Hariri and 20 others in Beirut.

Akef further criticised the United States for imposing its will "with tanks and Hummer" vehicles on the Iraqi people, and when Iraqis aimed to "defend their freedom, they were labeled as terrorists."

Earlier this month, Akef called Israel a "cancer" in the Middle East and said its peace treaty with Egypt should be submitted to a referendum.

"I declared that we will not recognize Israel which is an alien entity in the region. And we expect the demise of this cancer soon," Akef told the state-owned English language Ahram Weekly in an interview published on December 15.
