Cairo - The top cleric from Egypt’s fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood has denounced peace efforts with Israel, urging holy war to liberate Palestinian territories.

Thursday’s call by Mohammed Badei came just a day after Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, who also hails from the Brotherhood, succeeded in brokering a truce to end eight days of Israel-Hamas fighting.

Under the deal, Gaza’s ruling Hamas is to stop rocket fire into Israel while Israel is to cease airstrikes and allow the opening of the strip’s long-blockaded borders.

Badei says “jihad is obligatory” for Muslims and that peace deals with Israel are a “game of grand deception.” He says there’s been enough negotiations, the “enemy knows nothing but language of force.”

The Brotherhood and its members don’t recognize Israel and refuse to hold direct talks with Israelis.

This is a classic example of Muslim teachings which incites war and hatred against others. There can never be peace as long as Mulim teachings influence the people to murder and hate.
