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.
