Libyan researcher Dr. Ali Al-Siba'i said that "history informs us that [the Jews] are treacherous and deceitful," and added that "all this vileness, this treachery, this hypocrisy, this deception, and the slaying of prophets, and so on - it is all mentioned in the Quran." Recounting "a story along those lines," he said that Napoleon, upon entering Egypt, told the scholars of Al-Azhar that he was embracing Islam and that "he sat with them and read the Quran while his fleet was bombarding Alexandria, crushing the Egyptian people." The interview with Dr.Al-Siba'i was broadcasted on Turkey's TV Channel 9 on September 1, 2018.
Following are excerpts:
Libyan Researcher Dr. Ali Al-Siba'i: In the early 1970s and the 1980s, notions like "Jews," "plunderers," and "Palestine" were deeply rooted in our school curricula. You grew up hating the Jews, whether on the basis of Islam or of pan-Arabism.
History informs us that [the Jews] are treacherous and deceitful. Even the Quran mentioned these traits. These are the same traits that we see today, in the way they greet us on Ramadan, or in the way they present [Israeli] soldiers as if they were doves of peace… All this vileness, this treachery, this hypocrisy, this deception, and the slaying of prophets, and so on – it is all mentioned in the Quran. Let me tell you a story along those lines. When Napoleon Bonaparte entered Egypt, he found the Al-Azhar scholars reading the Bukhari hadith compilation. He was asking about the whereabouts of the scholars, knowing that they are the spearhead of the resistance to the colonialists. He was told that they were at Al-Azhar, reading the Bukhari hadith compilation. He went inside and told them that he was embracing Islam. He said: "Good tiding. I, Muhammad Napoleon, have converted to Islam." He sat with them, and read the Quran, while his fleet was bombarding Alexandria, crushing the Egyptian people. This method was often used against our Islamic nation.
All these armies – the American army, the Russian army, the Jewish army, or whatever – have media wings for distorting notions. For example, when the U.S. entered Iraq, what slogans did it use? Iraq was annihilated. Millions of people died. Entire villages were razed to the ground. Iraq was thrown off the course of history. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis were displaced. But what does the U.S. have to say to the Arabs today? "Spreading the notion of democracy," "establishing justice," "eliminating dictatorships," "eliminating terrorism" – these are the shiny slogans used by the U.S. army and government. The same goes for those Jews. No matter how bleak the picture… You can see for yourself in the archives of the so-called "Jewish army" – there is nothing but destruction and the killing of women and children, and crimes that would make your flesh crawl. Despite this, if they continue in this fashion, they will influence people. People are easily influenced and tend to forget easily.
Our problem is not with the Jews per se. Our problem is with that mongrel entity that perpetrated all these deeds.
