Morsi’s Non-Apology Apology Appears to Satisfy US

As predicted here, Mori's anti-Israel rants will have no affect on U.S. policy of aiding Egypt's transition to an Islamist democracy-dictatorship.

A spokesperson for Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi responded to reports about the President’s diatribes against Israel and Jews in 2010 as released by MEMRI, saying that the remarks were taken out of context.

The New York Times’ report:

Yasser Ali, the Morsi spokesman, said on Wednesday night at a news conference that Mr. Morsi had told the delegation that the comments were meant as criticism of the “racist” policies of the Israeli government, not as insults to Jews.

“President Morsi assured the delegation that the broadcast comments were taken out of an address against the Israeli aggression against Gaza,” Mr. Ali said, according to The Associated Press. In what context is it appropriate to call on people “to nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred for them: for Zionists, for Jews”? Or to call Israelis/Zionists/Jews,”these bloodsuckers who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.” As part of one of his diatribes, Morsi said that if Israel does not give in to every Palestinian demand the Arab world should wage war on Israel in every way possible. There is no appropriate context.

Remember, this is not the nomination of someone for a position in the cabinet, from whom Senators need to hear policy clarifications before they vote in favor. This is the President of the country that has led the Arab world time and again in wars to obliterate Israel.

Morsi’s rants in the two separate clips (shown together in one video by MEMRI) were natural. They were not carefully prepared statements. One does not go on and on as Morsi did without having deep-seeded hatred towards Israel (and Israel is both the Jewish state and the homeland of approximately half of all Jews, so let’s stop pretending that one can talk about Zionists and not Jews).

These are not things that context can fix or policy positions that can be changed. These rant is evidence of Morsi’s beliefs and world views and what he feels state power – which he now controls – should be used for. And these are only the latest in a long line of evidence that under Islamist control, Egyptian power will be directed against Israel.

Yet, what is the U.S. doing with all this information? Continuing to lend a hand to that future.

The Times reports that a delegation of U.S. Senators confronted Morsi’s spokesperson about Morsi’s remarks. After hearing the spokesperson’s response, the Times reports that

the senators declined to characterize Mr. Morsi’s response. But they appeared to feel he had addressed the issue. The senators emphasized their support for Egypt’s transition to democracy. They also said they would press Congress to provide badly needed financial aid and urge American businesses to invest in Egypt, although they also said that Mr. Morsi’s inflammatory statements in 2010 made both requests tougher to sell.

“The Egyptian people are going to have to showcase your best behavior,” said another senator in the delegation, Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina.
Thus, as predicted here, Mori’s anti-Israel rants will have no affect on U.S. policy of aiding Egypt’s transition to an Islamist democracy-dictatorship. For the Senators, it would only make American aid “tougher to sell” to Congress.

  1. Morsi is changing his tune in order to get US money, just like Hagel is changing his tune to get confirmed. Both are lying.

    Neither Morsi nor most mainstream Muslim leaders make a distinction between hatred for some or for all Jews.

    A few years back, Sheik Tantawi — then possibly the most influential religious leader in Sunni Islam and honored in many Western circles as a moderate — also denounced the Jews as “the enemies of Allah, the descendants of apes and pigs.” (He’s an expert of sorts; his doctoral dissertation was devoted to identifying the unflattering traits of Jews.)

    * The Hamas charter incorporates verbatim sections from Hitler’s old favorite, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” a forgery produced in late 1800s by the Czarist secret police.

    * Mahmoud Abbas, the “moderate” Palestinian Authority leader, once penned a thesis arguing that Jews — for political purposes — deliberately inflated the Holocaust death toll from 1 million to 6 million.

    * When Malaysia’s former prime minister, Mohammad Mahathir, denounced Jews in vile terms at a conference of top world Muslim leaders, he got a standing ovation and not one word of protest.

    * Iran hosts an annual Holocaust-denial conference.

    * And Saudi-sponsored educational materials loaded with Jew-hatred are distributed worldwide, including at some schools and mosques in the United States, Britain and other Western countries.

  2. Morsi is changing his skin, inside he's fan of hamas and jihad.

  3. It may be time for a New Jewish DEFENSE League. Morsi is another Hitler in the making. OBAMA JUST GAVE HIM FREE F16 JETS AND LIBERALS THINK ALL IS WELL WITH THE JEWISH WORLD. Israel is surrounded by enemies with nuclear ambitions, a holocaust is in the making. Wake up Jews before it will be too late once again. Rabbi DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  4. Rabbi Chaim Vital wrote in the 16th Century, "At the End of Days, Israel is destined to experience the Ishmaelite exile. This fifth and last exile will be the most difficult of all. It is the exile of Ishmael, who is called 'pe're adam,' a wild man." Be strong, cling to your faith and we will see Moshiach wipe all this away. As we sing in Shir Hamaahlot (Psalm 126), we were like dreamers, meaning before our redemption, now in the end times. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG
