On the same day that White House deputy press secretary, Josh Earnest joked about Muslim Brotherhood attacks on Egyptian Coptic Christians, Professor, Amjad Qourshah, an Islamic studies professor at the University of Amman in Jordan, who has ties to the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), went on a tirade of anti-Christian attacks against Egypt’s Copts on Wednesday, accusing them of burning their own churches.
John Rossomando of the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reported that Qourshah Facebook tirade also included an image of Jesus that is similar in nature, of the 2006 Danish cartoon depicting the Muslim prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban.
The image Qourshah used in this case, shows Jesus with an AK-47 over his shoulder with a bomb halo surrounding his head, saying “Jesus says: ‘Sell your clothes and buy arms.” The caption above the image says: “The way to hypocrisy for the Orthodox Copts.”
IPT was able to translate Qourshah’s rant before the Facebook page with his rant was taken down where he wants the Egyptian army to annihilate the Coptic Christians and rambles on taking Old Testament and New Testament scripture out of context.
Qourshah blamed the Coptic Christians for the violence although news reports from Egyptian bloggers and Christian aid workers contradict his accusations.
Qourshah said, “Where are you, oh hypocrites who claim to love freedom and peace, when you are at the head of sedition. Your channels were the first to call for war, strife and lies… Your chiefs were the first to ignite sectarian strife set fire. Personally, I do not rule out Copts burning their churches themselves to accuse the Muslims in coordination with the heads of the church and the Egyptian security services.”
“Where are you, liberals and secularists throughout the length and breadth of Arab countries on the Copts entering into politics and their chiefs encouraging them to violence and terrorism and urged their followers and the security agencies to murder and vileness?”
Rossomando said, “MAS and fellow Islamist groups, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), have been silent about the violence against Egypt’s Christians by the Muslim Brotherhood. Those groups either have roots in the Muslim Brotherhood or have worked with it. The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) has similarly been silent.”
ITP reported that on Monday, they were able to obtain a memo from the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party that showed a call and approval for the terrorists launch violence against Egypt’s Coptic Christian population and to burn down Christian churches.
The Professor’s verbal attacks come on the heels of a report that President Obama and his administration had to have known that by supporting Morsi and Muslim Brotherhood terrorists, they aligned themselves with those who murdered foreign tourists in Egypt in 1997.
