A senior Muslim Brotherhood official called on Jews who immigrated to Israel from Egypt to return to Egypt and leave Israel to the Palestinians, the Egypt Independent reported on Friday.

Senior Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood official Essam el-Erian said in an interview to television station Dream TV that every Egyptian has the right to live in Egypt, and Egyptian Jews living in Israel are contributing to the occupation of Arab lands, according to the Egypt Independent.

"Egyptian Jews should refuse to live under a brutal, bloody and racist occupation stained with war crimes against humanity," Erian said.

"Why did [former Egyptian president Gamal Abdel] Nasser expel them from Egypt?" Erian asked in the interview.
