MEMRI has the transcript:
Jihad from the rear: Egyptian cleric Mazher Shahin gave an address on the Egyptian Al-Tahrir TV channel, in which he lambasted the Muslim Brotherhood, claiming that it permitted homosexuality among its members. This “anal Jihad” is proof that they are “a bunch of hopeless and desperate peddlers, who have reached a state of foolishness, stupidity, filth, and so on – to the highest imaginable degree,” he said.
Following are excerpts from the TV show, which aired on June 26, 2014:
Mazher Shahin: We have recently heard of a new kind of Jihad, called “anal Jihad.” Do you know what that is? They practice homosexuality with one another, thinking, wrongly, that this constitutes Jihad for the sake of Allah.
The [Muslim Brotherhood] is a bunch of hopeless and desperate peddlers, who have reached a state of foolishness, stupidity, filth, and so on – to the highest imaginable degree. This catastrophe – this “anal Jihad” – is proof of this. We have heard about “sexual Jihad,” in which somebody takes a woman and has sex with her because he is waging Jihad.
Now we are hearing about “anal Jihad,” in which two men are permitted to perform this great sin – God forbid – with one another, because they are away from home and cannot have sex with their wives. They are conducting what they consider to be Jihad for the sake of Allah, so they do it with one another. Their sheiks permit them to do these things. This is despicable, foolish, and asinine.
