Egyptian university lecture: Jews intent on destroying Egypt

On Wednesday afternoon, a lecture given at Fayoum University by Sheikh Hazem Shoman. While the Egyptian media reported on one part of his speech - denying that Salafists were involved in the attacks on the Coptic church - most of them didn't mention another part of the speech.

Al Wafd reported his remarks this way:
Sheikh Hazem Shoman says that Egypt is a country of Muslims and Copts, and the Jews who occupy Palestine are their enemy. The most important thing to [the Jews] is simply the destruction of Egypt because Egypt is the leader of the Islamic nation and 46 [Islamic} countries.

This came during a lecture Wednesday afternoon at the University of Fayoum, in the presence of thousands of students jammed the Grand Ballroom at the university.
