A senior cleric in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has declared that ordinary Egyptians are obligated to kill 'Zionists' whom they encounter.

CiF Watch notes the similarity with similar rallies from just a few decades ago--in Nazi Germany.
Actually, considering the close relationship at the time between the Nazis and certain Islamist groups, and the fondness that the Muslim Brotherhood has shown for the Nazis, the similarity should not be surprising.
