These comments come from former Lebanese defense minister 'Abd-al-Rahim Murad, and appear to be following a pattern for him, as he also previously blamed the Jews for the 9/11 attacks on the U.S.

The president of the Unity Party, former minister 'Abd-al-Rahim Murad, condemned the attack on the Coptic Church in Alexandria, stressing that it is "clear evidence of Zionist-Western attempts to target the national fabric of Egypt, and the unity of the sons of this ancient Arab country, which has long enriched us with its national solidarity, and its ability to overcome foreign attempts to sow sedition and division."

Murad further stated that, "Whatever labels those criminal hands place on their work, it will not deceive Egyptian and Arab public opinion, for they are working to further the plans of Zionists and Westerners who want to strike at the unity of our national and Arab societies in order to justify the legitimacy of their own religious nation, which was established on extortion and abhorrent racism."
