Note: In the video, Bachmann alleges that Mohamed Morsi (or Mursi), the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt, had said that he would make Jerusalem the capital of Egypt, but perhaps this is not true. Leftist outlets say that this is even typical rightist (scaremongering) propaganda: Indeed, it seems that it was not the democratic Morsi who said that (this summer), but Dr. Safwat Hegazy, who seems to be only, according to a Coptic site, “a popular Muslim Brotherhood preacher in Egypt, known for his desire to unify the Arab world into a ‘Untied [sic; should be “United” though] Arab States,'” who in July “made clear what the Muslim Brotherhood seeks: a caliphate and world domination, which even the Supreme Guide of the Brotherhood has asserted is the group’s mission.”
Indeed, also according to al-Arabiya it was Morsi – er, sorry! – Hegazy, who, “as the crowds cheered, waving the Egyptian flags along with the flags of the Islamist Hamas group, which rules the Gaza Strip,” said before the last Egyptian election that
“The United States of the Arabs will be restored on the hands of that man [Mursi] and his supporters. The capital of the [Muslim] Caliphate will be Jerusalem with God’s will,” […].
“Tomorrow Mursi will liberate Gaza,” the crowds chanted.
“Yes, we will either pray in Jerusalem or we will be martyred there,” Hegazy said.
According to al-Arabiya, Hegazy said this
during a presidential campaign rally at the Egyptian Delta city of Mahalla, where Mursi attended along with the Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohammed Badei and members of the group and its political wing the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP).
Which is as “largely secular”, of course, as Hamas.
