Abdel Monem Aboul Futuh is one of two frontrunners in the Egyptian presidential election. His closest opponent is Amr Moussa. Conveniently, Futuh is NOT the official Muslim Brotherhood candidate but he still has unkind words for Israel.
A leading Islamist candidate in Egypt’s presidential election has branded Israel a “racist state” and said a shared 1979 peace treaty was “a national security threat” that should be revised.
Abdel Moneim Abouel Fotouh also denounced Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden’s assassination by US special forces as an act of “state terrorism,” in a late Saturday Egyptian television interview.
Abouel Fotouh, a front runner in the 23-24 May election according to polls, had earlier described Israel as an “enemy” in a televised debate with his main contender, former Foreign Minister and Arab League chief Amr Moussa.
In Saturday’s interview with the private Egyptian CBC satellite station, he said he had opposed the treaty since its implementation.
“I still view the peace treaty as a national security threat to Egypt, and it must be revised,” Abouel Fotouh said.
Are there any leftists out there who might possibly be willing to direct their anger at racism toward a more deserving source or will they continue being afflicted with the psychological condition known as displacement?
Futuh used to be a member of the Brotherhood who was allegedly expelled for running for president when the official Brotherhood position was that it wouldn’t field a presidential candidate. That begs the question: If Futuh was expelled from the Ikhwan for running for president, why is Mohamed Mursi – the Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate – still a member?
Perhaps that question might involve the top Muslim Brotherhood sheikh, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi. He has endorsed Futuh.
Here is a video montage of Futuh that proves he is lying about the Peace Treaty with Israel:
