Abbas’ advisor: Israel benefits from ISIS attacks in Egypt

Posted on private Facebook page of Mahmoud Al-Habbash on July 1, 2015.
Supreme Shari’ah Judge, Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice Mahmoud Al-Habbash writes in reply to the ISIS terrorist attack in Egypt:
 “I have no doubt that the main beneficiary – and perhaps the only one that really benefits – of the attack in Egypt is Israel. Simply put, this means that whoever harms Egypt is acting for the good of Israel, whether or not they want to.”

Al-Habbash received many replies supporting his words. One was the anti-Semitic response of Ashraf Salameh Abu Islam which Al-Habbash ‘liked’:
 “This is what the Jews are working towards: the establishment of the great kingdom from the Iraq river [Euphrates] to the Nile. It used people with twisted, extreme faith, and the Jews are behind all that is happening from Iraq to Egypt. Unfortunately, there are those who implement their (i.e., the Jews) plans in the name of Islam.”
