In an interview, translated by PMW, Al-Sha'arawi said:
"What is being asked, so that the Americans and Zionists will be satisfied with you, is to follow their lead … We [on this program] have a message, and we understood from the beginning that it is a difficult path... But we were sure that we had to go this way, because this [young] generation needs someone to direct it …and this generation is the most worthy of the position of leadership…Let’s ask history: …which time period was good to all communities? The Jews lived in the time of Islam [under Islamic rule] and were happy. The Christians lived in the time of Islam [under Islamic rule] and were happy. Look at the history, the prophet [Muhammad] … ordered the army: ‘Do not kill a monk in his prayer room.’ Even the Caliph Umar Bin Al-Khattab, [Islamic conqueror of Jerusalem in 638] when he came into the Al-Aqsa Mosque, he secured the churches and the prayer rooms. Therefore, when we talk [on the program] about the mission of the restoration of Islam to its natural place [of world rule], we [are] calling for justice, and for goodness, and for world love… so that the Christians will live in peace, and that even the Jews will live in peace and security.”"Justice, and goodness and world love?" Excuse me while I laugh.
Justice? Yeah, right. Sharia law is an incredibly just system. And goodness and love? Oh yes, they're a very loving people. They teach their children to hate Jews and Christians and other non-Muslims. They strap bombs on themselves and their offspring. And they can't even live peaceably with their fellow Palestinians. Fighting between Fatah and Hamas continues on a daily basis. Yes, very loving.
I'm not sure what they consider 'love', but it's definitely not killing people, or wanting to dominate all world religions.
