TV channel Al-Arabiya reported that the supreme religious leader of Egyptian movement Muslim Brotherhood whose candidate became recently Egypt's president, Sheikh Mohamed Badie, called on Thursday for Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.
He said in his weekly address that Jerusalem was an Islamic city, and nobody was entitled to make concessions on this issue.
"The Jihad for the liberation of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims", he said, stressing that the liberation of the Holy City "would not be carried through negotiations or by the United Nations".
Al Arabiya recalls that president Mursi from Muslim Brotherhood repeatedly said earlier that Egypt would respect international treaties signed by Cairo under Mubarak. But members of his movement Muslim Brotherhood believe that there is a need to review a number of treaties and contracts.
The TV channel recalls that during the summer presidential campaign, representatives of Muslim Brotherhood also spoke of the need to liberate Jerusalem.
One of Islamic leaders of Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Safwat Hagazy, speaking on the TV channel AnnasTV, said that the capital of the Muslim world was not Cairo, Mecca or Medina, but holy Jerusalem.
"Millions of martyrs have to go to Jerusalem which will be the capital of the Caliphate", said Sheikh Hagazy
