Egyptian TV Host: Our Enemy Is Israel for All Eternity

Following are excerpts from a statement by Egyptian TV host Khaled Al-Abraq, which aired on Egyptian Channel 1 on October 5, 2013.

Khaled Al-Abraq: [In the 1973 war], the Israeli Jews slashed open our soldiers' bellies, chopped them to pieces, and ran them over with tanks. Gentlemen, our external enemy will forever be Israel, and our internal enemy will be ignorance.

They may try to invent other enemies for us, but the real enemy will remain [Israel]. Never will they approve of you…

They always taught us at school that our enemy is Israel. I don't know who they say is our enemy in today's schools. They pick a different enemy every couple of days. I am astonished to hear people say that we will not allow anyone to attack Egypt… I thought that they were talking about Israel, but they were talking about Hamas!

Gentlemen, your enemy is Israel. Your enemy is Israel. Your enemy is Israel for all eternity. That's what it is. [Israel] is an enemy. This is what I teach my son and what he will teach his son.
