Benghazi Terrorists: ‘Dr. Morsi Sent Us’

Mideast-EgyptThe terrorist attack in Benghazi is far more disturbing than previously thought. Although it has not been reported in the U.S. media, the possibility exists that the Egyptian government may have played an operational role in the attack. YouTube videos of the terrorist strike raise a serious problem that only an Arabic speaker would detect: some of the terrorists are speaking in the Egyptian dialect of the Arabic language.

Indeed, one of the videos shot with a cell phone of one of the attackers emerged around the time four Americans were killed. It shows a mob approaching the American compound under siege, clearly telling the terrorists in the dialect of Upper Egypt: “Mahadesh, mahadesh yermi, Dr. Morsi ba`atna” — which translates to: “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot, Dr. Morsi sent us.”

The words “Mahadesh yermi” for “don’t shoot” are characteristically spoken in Egyptian Arabic, while Libyans from Benghazi would say, “Matermey” for “don’t shoot.”

“Dr. Morsi” refers, of course, to president Mohamed Morsi of Egypt. The name Morsi is Egyptian and does not exist in any other Arabic speaking country.

The Egyptian regime’s connection to Benghazi also helps explain why it denied U.S. the ability to interrogate Abo Ahmed, an Egyptian suspect in the terrorist attack.

According to a Fox News report, Abo Ahmed had contacted Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri in late 2012, asking to establish a base in Libya “to take advantage of the conditions in Libya after the revolution in order to buy weapons and attract foreign fighters.”

Egyptian media demanded an explanation from the Egyptian regime on why Morsi’s name was mentioned by jihadists during the attack. This question went unanswered, and until now there has been no word of this issue in English-language media.

This incident fits a larger context: On the same day that the U.S. compound in Benghazi was attacked, so too was the U.S. Embassy in Cairo under attack, resulting in al-Qaeda flags flying above the embassy in the place of American flags. According to friends living two blocks away from the U.S. embassy, Egyptian security was withdrawn from protecting the embassy a month prior to the attack – a development without precedent.

Reports from numerous Egyptian dissidents at that time, which included prominent Egyptian dissident Wael Abbas on his twitter account, stated that the people surrounding the U.S. embassy in Cairo were not protestors but “regime-hired thugs.”

Anyone who has lived in Egypt knows that Egyptian citizens don’t have access to enter the neighborhood where the U.S. embassy is located without passing through at least two check points where they are required to show personal ID, state the reason for entering the neighborhood and provide proof of this purpose. I know because I personally had to do this numerous times for decades.

The Egypt connection might explain the curious statement by President Obama three days after the attack, when he said, “Egypt is not an ally.”

It should not come as a surprise that the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) would engage in attacks against the United States. The MB’s ideology incorporates war tactics and supports terrorism against the U.S. as one of its major objectives.

The current MB leadership isn’t ashamed of announcing its support for al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden’s attack against America. The MB member and Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Vice Chairman Essam El-Erian stated in May 2011: “The assassination of the leader Osama Bin Laden doesn’t mean the end in the war against the enemies of Allah. The way he was killed reveals the ugly face of American civilization.”

Yet after El-Erian’s announcement of his support for Bin Laden, State Department officials welcomed him in December 2012 in the U.S..

According to the MB and Sunni doctrine, it’s only permissible for Islamist leaders to maintain a ten-year duration of hodna (Islamic truce) with an infidel nation. This raises the question of whether breaking the truce was the root of the Sep. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi. That attack against America was, according to Islamist doctrine, the only way the MB would be allowed to renew a truce. The MB also might have possibly needed to legitimize their Islamic rule among their jihadist followers through exercising jihad.

The MB’s duality and hypocrisy remain major war tactics. While dealing with the U.S., Morsi himself practices deceit when he, for instance, calls President Obama a liar in Arabic, and a friend in English. The MB war is fueled and encouraged by the submissive and self-loathing suicidal foreign policy of the Obama administration, which elevates U.S. enemies above U.S. interests.

    It is more than likely that Morsi gave them operational and other related cover, simply because the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia operates as an umbrella front for all jihadi groups. Most essentially, Egypt's Brotherhood was front and center in 9/11/01! Not only that, but Benghazigate exploded due to the footprints of an illegal weapons running operation out of Libya, all in order to EMPOWER Syria's "rebels" Brotherhood Mafia, aligned with Al Qaeda too.
    In effect, the circle becomes complete when one understands the nexus of the Brotherhood, from one end of the spectrum to another –

    It is always a mistake to try to "separate" one act of jihad from another. They are inextricably linked to Islam and those who uphold Sharia Law.

      You are forgetting is that a whistle blower who, is waiting legal clarification of his standing and possible prosecution for releasing classified data, before he comes out publically, is reportedly saying the Hillary Clinton , through the State Department, had given the rebels. which included Hezbollah and Taliban fighters, stinger missiles, and when the CIA found out about it, they sent the Ambassador to Benghazi to try to get them back. Apparently our incompetent national manager does not have control over his underlings, who are also either incompetent or out right traitors. .

    i would like to reiterate that war is not a necessity in human existence rather in eradicates the humanity in us. i do hope that our country's leader would be pacifist in this issues.

    • Looking4Sanity

      Passivity in the face of evil is suicide. The reason that war still exists is that people who believe as you do are promptly removed from the gene pool in favor of people with superior survival instincts. It's called natural selection.

    • pagegl

      I agree that war is not a necessity in human existence. However, there are people out there who would gladly kill me and my family just because we do not believe in their idiot religion. So, as much as I believe that "give peace a chance" is wonderful and something that we all should aspire to, I'm not going to let some barbarian attempt to kill me and mine. If I'm attacked, I will do everything in my power to dissuade my attacker from his actions, if that means killing him, so be it.

    • Sky Soldier

      Regarding your last sentence, how could the President be a pacifist concerning the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic terrorists when his own half-brother, Malik Obama, who happens to head up the Obama Foundation is in bed with Islamic terrorists? Furthermore, when this President's administration is funding and shipping military weaponry to Egypt and Libyan terrorists when Islam has an existing declared war on America, Israel, Christians, and all non-muslims, isn't our President's actions an act of Treason by aiding and abetting our enemies?

      People that think like you are, to realists like myself, unfrigginbelievable!!
      Do you even understand that if it weren't for the bloody crusades, you would be praying to Mecca several times a day & speaking arabic right now? Or that if it wasn't for WW2 you would be living from cradle to grave under an oppressive Nazi government? I could go on & on with this stuff of course, but it just blows my mind that anyone thinks the way you do..
      Of course this is the liberal way. Everything is backazzwards. I suppose you also don't feel the law abiding in our society have the right to own guns to defend themselves & that women should only practice liberal measures of self defense like vomiting & defecating on themselves when a rapist attacks. Then I suppose in your opinion we should just make it worth his while by showing him a good, appeasing time before making it as easy to finish us off as possible.
      I honestly think those of your ilk are the ones that truly deserve to live under despotic tyranny & we'd be wise to create a nation just for you appeasers on a large island somewhere where we can appoint the most evil dictator alive to rule over you all. Ship every leftist idiot there to live under the government they deserve. Those of us in the rest of the world would be much happier as nobody would be undermining & attacking good people's right to defend themselves & their countries.
      Unfortunately, you & your cohorts are completely unworthy of the all the blood spilled & sacrifices made by those who fought to & died so you'd have the freedom to say such moronic things.

    The US relied on the Muslim Brotherhood for security at the Libyan Consulate. The White House, in effect, colluded with America's worst enemies, and then lied in an attempt to cover it up..even after four embassy workers ended up dead. Same at Fort Hood, the problem is that we are not training FBI agents to recognize Radical Islam. This is very serious. The President supported Mohammed Morsi over the pro-west former president, Hosni Mubarak. Morsi decrees there will be no power greater in Egypt than himself, so he is the new Pharoh.

          The fact is that 0'Bama did not kill Osama. And furthermore, it served the Sunni caliphate agenda very well to allow his sacrifice at that point.

          Your point is silly and naive.

      • Sky Soldier

        Exactly, and he has stated (documented) that when it comes down to a ultimate decision, he would take sides with Islam over America! In “Audacity of Hope” Obama writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.

        • Roger

          The muslim loyal trolls must not have liked that one with a passion!

          And I agree with you, it's one of the VERY few times we can believe what Obama said.

  • ajweberman

    If you study jihadist website you will discover they hate Morsi.

    • Cynthia Farahat

      That only started to happen because the elevation of the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt made thousands of Muslims apostate from Islam and turn to Atheism or Christianity, and the made the majority of Egyptian Muslims hate Islamists.
      Saudi Arabia hosted a huge two day conference on Muslim Apostasy from Islam ten days ago. That's the only reason Salafist recently started turning against Morsi.

      But the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood two days ago that they are willing to send 12 thousand jihadists to fight in Syria, they are trying to salvage their popularity among terrorists.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "If you study jihadist website you will discover they hate Morsi."

      I'm not sure what your point is. Those who don't know his underlying agenda want him to use Egypt NOW in an open global jihad.

      • ajweberman

        The Muslim Brotherhood believes in establishing Sharia law through the ballot box. The jihadi want to do it through violence because they do not recognize secular governments since they are established by men and not Allah. But Mohammedans really worship Moe and not Al. When Allah's name in mentioned they do not say MPBUH.

    This Administration needs to explain why it is giving the MB weapons and money from the American taxpayer. Why was he running guns down to Mexico via Fast and Furious? This administration has done nothing but lie all the way down the line about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, now Syria.
    Obama needs to explain WHY WE ARE ARMING OUR ENEMIES, because that's what he's been doing.

  • Jay

    A most interesting article. It struck me at the time, observing from a great distance and only reading news reports, that the Cairo riots were a sort of pilot burner, and the assassination in Benghazi was part of an orchestrated whole. It just looked that way. Now that we know that the spiel about the video was a sham from our own government, the whole thing smells. Why was Amb. Stevens there on that particular night? Who ordered him there?

  • jim bob

    at J, consider this possible scenario.the State Department and the White House were aware and both knew that they have been shipping weapons to Livia. These weapons included the very affective Stinger is already proven that ambassador Stevens had a meeting with certain people thatwent very sour. It is also known that B people in the meeting left hastily and angrily. It was not long after that that the embassy was attacked. 3 career generals and one Admiral have all been dismissed or as there is a reason why they gave every excuse Under the Sun to not go in after the fact. There is a reason why they told certain men to stand down casome might say even fired under questionable terms since they spoke out against what are government decided to do by not allowing our forces to go and and try and rescue does at the compound. With it being so close to the fall presidential election, how would it have looked if the news and journalists reported that when we had sent our military in to rescue are compound people, and we had somehow had our planes shot down, and of all things, they were shot down by sophisticated Stinger missiles, how would have it looked to have found out that our State Department and President had signed off on getting missiles to the Libyan rebels?Aesop captain has already getting sworn testimony that he personally watch as Libyan rebels debated and are you over who was getting what weapons that he was delivering on his ship supplied the of America.these weapons given by the State Department with President approval were always too hopefully try and bring down to Dolphy on the cheap as in the enemy of our enimies our friend. if you think about it, name one good clothes off a reason that can be proven why they told our troops to stand down, why they told the operatives to stand down, why they still have not explained why ambassador Stevens was there. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that leaves us to prove well at least thanks we will never be truly told what happened there because it could bring down this administration.

    The Muslim Brotherhood are the TOP favorites of the Obama administration (and Hillary Clinton). The MB have been placed into positions of enormous power in our government including in Homeland Security. The MB help to make both foreign and domestic policy. The MB's stated goal is the DESTRUCTION of Western civilization (our civilization is based on the Ten Commandments God gave at Mount Sinai) and global Islamic conquest.

    Obama and Clinton did not hesitate to betray loyal U.S. ally, Mubarak, in order to install into power, HUGE FAVORITES, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    Whatever Morsi does, clearly has the full blessing of the Obama administration.

    How many other Americans and U.S. allies are to be betrayed and how long is the list?

    THE GERMANE QUESTION: Where was Barack Obama during those seven hours?
    And WHO was in charge of the United States security decisions?

    Ft. Hood jihadist Major Nidal Malik Hasan who slaughtered thirteen fellow soldiers while shouting "Allahu Akbar" ("Islamic God is great"), has yet to be brought to trial under Barack HUSSEIN Obama's Justice!

    Yet, in spite of a mountain of evidence against Hasan, official government reactions to his murderous rampage and to other actions by radical Islamists reveal anything but bigotry against Muslims:
    •The official Department of Defense report on the murder of the thirteen servicemen at Fort Hood does not mention Hasan by name, nor does it mention the words "jihad" or "Muslim," while "Islam" occurs only in a reference footnote.
    •U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder refused to state that radical Islam played any role in the Fort Hood shooting or the attempted bombing of Times Square in New York City in 2009.
    •Federal officials regularly resort to euphemisms, including "overseas contingency operation," "a campaign against extremists who wish to do us harm," and "countering violent extremism" to describe America's wars against radical Islamists and terror-sponsoring nations.

    Odds are this is where the video excuse came from, I will lay dollars to doughnuts our State Department had a back channel open with the Brotherhood, outside of normal _recorded and verifiable_ State Channels, which is why the video excuse came out from both so quickly and was so locked in. What's more, I bet a lot was going back and forth in the months before that attack, related to the security being stripped away. Either our State Department's leadership got totally played for fools by this stuff or worse.

    One thing's for sure, offering Anthony Weiner a shot at being Mayor of NYC has nothing to do with him, it's all about keeping someone else happy. Because I will again lay dollars to doughnuts that if anybody knows about that back channel and what was said back and forth on it, it is Hillary's right hand aide, Huma Wiener. That is why Hillary, who has massive stroke in NY Politics (Ask Nita Lowey) is probably angling to get Weiner that gig. Bank on it!
