Cairo - The Muslim Brotherhood claimed in a post on its official website that Egypt’s new interim president Adli Mansour is Jewish, The Washington Post reported on Friday. The article on IkhwanOnline was subsequently removed.

Mansour, who previously served as the constitutional court’s chief justice was sworn in as interim president on Thursday after the army removed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi from power.

According to the Post, the article falsely stated that Mansour is “considered to be a Seventh Day Adventist, which is a Jewish sect.”

The authors also claimed that the Pope of Egypt’s Coptic church had refused to convert Mansour to Christianity.

The article on IkhwanOnline, according to the Post, posited that Mansour’s appointment was backed by Israel and the US as part of a plan to eventually install leading opposition figure and former IAEA chief Mohamed ElBardei as president.

The Post quoted the article as saying that ElBaradei had turned down an invitation to participate in a conference that denied the Holocaust as “a token gesture offered to the Jews by ElBaradei so that he can become President of the Republic in the fake elections that the military will guard and whose results they will falsify in their interests. All with the approval of America, Israel and the Arabs, of course.”

This shows that Egypt is a land of equal opportunity. If it's true he'll be the most powerfull Jew in Egypt since Yosef saved them from famine.

There's be a Jewish Bishop, a Jewish Pope - why not a Jewish president of Egypt?

Maybe, they confused him with (Rabbi) Eli Mansour (SHLIT"A)?

Yikes, they are really twisting themselves into knots over this one. They seem to have left out that his wife is the Druid high-priestess and that his sons are all studying to be Shamans in an ashram in Cow Creek, Oregon.
