Out to get Egypt

morsi-mccainThe Jewish Zionist controlled media complex in the United States is out to get Egyptian President Morsi… says Egyptian President Morsi:

(Powerline)  Last week in Cairo (Egypt), seven U.S. senators had a highly contentious meeting with Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi during which the Muslim Brotherhood leader implied that he was the victim of an American media run by the Jews.

…Their stop in Cairo included a 90-minute meeting with Morsi that devolved into an uncomfortable set of exchanges as the senators pressed the Egyptian president to explain his 2010 comments describing Jews as “bloodsuckers who attack Palestinians” as well as “the descendants of apes and pigs.” …

… inside the meeting, the discussion over Morsi’s 2010 remarks was much more heated than either side publicly acknowledged afterwards... Addressing the comments was the first item on the senators’ agenda, and the discussion did not go well…

“We tried to give President Morsi an opportunity, now that he is the president, to put his comments in a different context because he was claiming that he was taken out of context. On their face they seemed to be very offensive and inappropriate,” Coons said. “It was a difficult conversation.”

Morsi told the senators that the values of Islam teach respect for Christianity and Judaism, and he asserted repeatedly that he had no negative views about Judaism or the Jewish people, but then followed with a diatribe about Israel and Zionist actions against Palestinians, especially in Gaza.

Then Morsi crossed a line and made a comment that made the senators physically recoil in their chairs in shock, Coons said.

“He was attempting to explain himself … then he said, ‘Well, I think we all know that the media in the United States has made a big deal of this and we know the media of the United States is controlled by certain forces and they don’t view me favorably,’” Coons said.

The Cable asked Coons if Morsi specifically named the Jews as the forces that control the American media. Coons said all the senators believed the implication was obvious.

“He did not say [the Jews], but I watched as the other senators physically recoiled, as did I,” he said. “I thought it was impossible to draw any other conclusion.”…

Multiple senators impressed upon Morsi that if he was saying the criticisms of his comments were due to the Jews in the media, that statement was potentially even more offensive than his original comments from 2010.

…“The conversation got so heated that eventually Senator McCain said to the group, ‘OK, we’ve pressed him as hard as we can while being in the boundaries of diplomacy,’”…

Following the meeting the U.S. sent Egypt hundreds of new F-16’s and M1A1 Abrams tanks.  And one of the senators in attendance was filing an emergency bill to give Egypt hundreds of millions of additional dollars in economic support.

Guess they didn’t recoil that far.
