White House condemns anti-Semitic Morsi comments

Published: 01.15.13, 20:58 / Israel News

The White House is strongly condemning remarks that Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi made almost three years ago about Jews. Morsi was a Muslim Brotherhood leader in 2010 when, according to The New York Times, he asked Egyptians to nurse their children and grandchildren on hatred for Jews and Zionists.


White House spokesman Jay Carney calls the language "deeply offensive" and says Morsi should make clear that he respects people of all faiths. He says the US government has raised its concerns about the remarks with Egypt. (AP)
