Dr. Ali Gumaa Mohamed, was born in Egypt in 1952 in the town of Bani Suwaif.
In 2003 Ali Gumaa wrote an introduction to an Arabic edition, published in Egypt, of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in which Ali Gumaa approved the authentication of the documents as really written by Jews. “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” claim that there is a Jewish conspiracy to rule the world and to exploit its people for the benefit of the Jews. Originally the book was written by the Czarist secret police of Russia “Okhrana” in 1905, probably to justify pogroms against the Jews in 1904.
On 09/28/2003 Ali Gumaa was nominated as the mufti of Egypt, the country's highest authority on Islamic law and the second in the religious hierarchy of Egypt after the Sheikh al-Azhar, the head of Cairo's ancient Islamic university and institute of religious learning Muhammad Sayed Tantawi (12/2008).
Although Ali Gumaa was nominated because the Egyptian authorities considered him as a moderate cleric, he adopted a radical Islamic view and a blunt anti-Jewish approach.
Ali Gumaa approved suicide attacks against those who “contemn” Islam ’within certain limits’ such as the killing of innocent Muslims, disqualify women for any public position and refers to Jews, who he cursed often in his public ceremonies, as the “sons of monkeys and pigs” . The term “sons of monkeys and pigs” became widely used by other Islamic clerics in the Arab Muslim world as a synonym for Jews.
