Brother of Al-Qaeda chief at Cairo anti-France demo
CAIRO: The brother of Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri joined dozens of Egyptian Islamists in a protest Friday near the French embassy in Cairo against French intervention in Mali. Â Mohammed al-Zawahiri took part in the demonstration during which protesters accused Paris of being “at war against Islam”. Â (Daily Star thanks to Vlad)
Foreign policy under Hussein Obama is a simple process. People hit America in the face and America pays them. Then the process is repeated.
This brilliant plan is called smart adhocracy. One day the New York Times will discover this is actually happening â€” inadvertently of course. Thank God for brilliant minds like theirs. Â (PJ MEDIA)
TheÂ New York TimesÂ has made a startling discovery. Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, is promoting “repulsive” anti-semitism in the region.
His scurrilous comments from nearly three years ago about Zionists and Jews, which just came to light, have raised serious doubts about whether he can ever be the force for moderation and stability that is needed. As reported by David Kirkpatrick in The Times, Mr. Morsi is shown in a video from 2010 delivering a speech in which he urges Egyptians to “nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred” for Jews and Zionists. In a television interview months later, he described Zionists as “these bloodsuckers who attack Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.”
Who would have thought it? Calling Alan Dershowitz. Calling Noam Chomsky. Calling Ed Koch. Please pick up the courtesy found in the lobby to take an urgent call from Captain Obvious. The NYT continues:
Does Mr. Morsi really believe what he said in 2010? Has becoming president made him think differently about the need to respect and work with all people? So far, there has been no official reaction.
The White House called for Mr. Morsi to make clear that he respects members of all faiths and said the videotaped remarks run counter to the goal of peace. President Obama should also deliver that message to President Morsi directly.
Of course he doesn’t believe what he said in 2010. And doubtless President Morsi will explain how his remarks about apes and pigs were taken out of context. He’ll say that since Egypt will be hitting Obama up for money in the next sentence.
