In the Words of Our Enemies…

Peace will hold so long as the Egyptians believe that we are strong enough and well trained enough to defeat them again.

…is the truth of what they feel.

We signed a peace agreement with Egypt; we evacuated towns and homes to give the Sinai desert back to Egypt after the wars of 1956, 1967, and 1973. In each war, we defeated their armies; decimated their defense lines. We’ll do it again if we have to. But we don’t want to – we don’t want to fight and so peace was agreed upon. But the peace with Egypt has always been a cold one – perhaps on both sides…certainly on theirs.

Will the peace hold? It will – so long as the Egyptians believe that we are strong enough and well trained enough to defeat them again. But there will likely never be real peace – the peace we dreamed about when Sadat came to Jerusalem. It didn’t happen under Mubarak and it is clear it won’t happen under Morsi.

This is a man fueled by hatred but the most unforgiving part of it all is that he would have us give his hatred to the generations to come, fed to them as their mothers nurse them. Not my words and certainly not the words of a peace partner.

Kudos to MEMRI for translating and making the videos of Morsi’s 2010 statements available – someday I hope the western world (and that idiot in the White House) will learn that what they say in English is not the language of their hearts. For that, Obama, you need to listen to them in Arabic.

Guess what? They can’t stand you any more than they tolerate us.

    It was the White House in 1973 which prevented Israel from crushing the Egyptian and Syrian armies once and for all. An entire Egyptian Army was surrounded and cut-off (I believe it was the Egyptian 3rd Army) up against the Suez canal and would have been forced to surrender if not for Nixon's Cold War calculations to bring Egypt into the American sphere. As for Syria, Israel could have captured Damascus and truly humiliated the Arabs for all time. Instead the Arabs bizarrely believe that the Yom Kippur War was somehow a win even though they lost 10X as many men.
