A child preacher identified as Ibrahim Adham called for the destruction of Israel on the Egyptian Al-Rahma television station this month, according to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
"Oh Islamic nation, oh all Muslims ... martyrdom on the path of Allah is a religious duty incumbent upon you, oh believers," the child said. "It is your path for salvation in the eyes of the Lord ... Pray: Oh Allah, destroy Israel. May Jerusalem live on until the Day of Judgment." 
The child also later referred to "the accursed Sharon, Bush and Obama."
A robed man is also seen in the clip, telling the child, "You are such a beautiful boy, by Allah!"

Earlier this month, the Simon Wiesenthal Center issued a strong condemnation of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, after Morsi attended a sermon where the preacher called for the "destruction and dispersal of the Jews."
A video emailed by the center showed Morsi at a mosque in the Mediterranean town of Marsa Matruh, where the congregation, including Morsi, answers "amen" to a cleric who recites a list of prayers in a traditional ritual.

In one of the prayers, the cleric asked God to "destroy the Jews and their supporters and disperse them, rend them asunder." Morsi is then seen continuing to say "amen." The prayers were aired on state TV and caught on video by MEMRI.
