Egypt minister says Zionism promotes atheism, homosexuality
Egypt’s Religious Endowments Minister accused “Zionist forces” of promoting atheism and homosexuality in his country.
Speaking with Al-Hayat TV, an Evangelical Arabic-language television station, Mohammed Mokhtar Gomaa said “colonial Zionist forces” support “atheists and atheism and finance homosexuals and homosexuality” in an effort to fragment Egyptian society. The interview, which took place in September, was published Sunday by MEMRI, a Washington-based Middle Eastern media watchdog group.
Gomaa is a cabinet member in the Sissi government, which coordinates closely with Israel on security and economic issues.
