Never underestimate the Power of Stupid.
Needless to mention that Morsi’s trip to Germany was first and foremost about money; the jiziya:
Translation: the kafirs must pay the jiziya without making any demands on the believers.
You might think that, givenÂ his profound animus toward Jewry, Egypt’s Mo Morsi would get less than a rousing welcome in Germany, a country which has madeÂ Holocaust denial illegal. Not so. In fact,Â Mo’s being welcomed with open arms:
In light of the wave of violence sweeping the country, Mr. Morsi cut his visit to Germany from two days to just a few hours. He will be greeted by ChancellorÂ Angela MerkelÂ upon his arrival in BerlinÂ with military honorsÂ before the two retire to the chancellery for talks and to hold a news conference.
Mr. Morsi will also meet Economy Minister Philipp RÃ¶sler for talks that will focus on bilateral economic relations and the creation of a joint economic committee. According to a statement by Mr. RÃ¶sler, the Egyptian president will be traveling with a number of his cabinet ministers and a delegation of more than 100 Egyptian business leaders. They will engage in discussion with some 160 German business leaders and industry lobbyists at the founding session of the committee on Tuesday…
Memo to German business leaders: G’head. Invest good money in a Mo-led Egypt. If you’re looking to lose your shirts, that is.
MorsiÂ also insistedÂ that he had nothing against Judaism and that comments on Israel attributed to him before he was elected had been “taken out of their context”.
“I am not against Judaism as a religion, I am not against the Jews who practice their religion,” he said. (He just wants to murder them, like all good Mustards)
AccordingÂ to a TV clipÂ released by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Morsi refers in a 2010 interview to “occupiers of Palestine” as “blood suckers and war mongers, and descendants of pigs and apes.”
Update:Â In light of Morsi’s visit,Â the followingÂ seems more than a little ironic/hypocritical:
BERLIN (AP) â€” On the 80th anniversary ofÂ Adolf Hitler’s rise to power,Â Chancellor Angela Merkelurged Germans to always fight for their principles and not fall into the complacency that enabled the Nazi dictator to seize control.
Speaking Wednesday at the opening of a new exhibit at theÂ Topography of TerrorÂ memorial documenting Hitler’s election, Merkel noted that German academics and students at the time happily joined the Nazis only a few months later in burning books deemed subversive.
“The rise of the Nazis was made possible because the elite of German society worked with them, but also, above all else, because most inÂ GermanyÂ at least tolerated this rise,” Merkel said.
After winning about a third of the vote in Germany’s 1932 election, Hitler convinced ailingPresident Paul von HindenburgÂ to appoint him chancellor on Jan. 30, 1933 â€” setting Germany on a course to war and genocide.
“This path ended in Auschwitz,” saidÂ Andreas Nachama, the director of the Topography of Terror…
And Morsi’s path–does itÂ end inÂ anything significantly different?
