The Muslim Brotherhood denied on Sunday that Mohammed Badiehad called for a “holy Jihad” against Israel, Daily News Egypt reported.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center condemned an alleged statement made by the Muslim Brotherhood’s supreme guide, Mohammed Badie, that Jews spread “corruption on earth, spilled the blood of believers and in their actions profane holy places, including their own.” The human rights organization called for the United States to sever all ties with the Brotherhood.

According to Daily News Egypt, Badie was also reported to have called for Arab nations to resist Israel “through holy Jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance,” accusing Zionists of only understanding the language of force.

Badie’s supposed statements were earlier reported by state-run Al-Ahram, and are stated on the official Muslim Brotherhood website.
