Khaled Fahmi: The Muslim Brotherhood bears much of the responsibility for the fleeing of the Jews from Egypt.

An article published in 1938 accused the Jews, among many other things… The article was titled “The Danger of the Jews to the Islamic and Christian world.” It accused the Jews of being the cause of British colonialism in India.
