Egypt’s Morsi Visits Genocidal Dictator Who Murdered Countless Christians, Speaks of Common Enemies

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


The Muslim Brotherhood is all about democracy. It opposes Syria’s Assad because it supports democracy. And Morsi just paid a visit to Sudanese butcher Omar al-Bashir because he really loves tyranny and the mass murder of Christians.

Omar al-Bashir is the only head of state to be indicted on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity by the ICC. A warrant for his arrest is still outstanding, but Muslim countries choose not to arrest him for obvious reasons. As have some collaborators, like Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Obama’s cousin in Kenya.

Still no Egyptian president had visited Sudan until Morsi. And Morsi’s rhetoric, when meeting with his genocidal host, was quite ominous.

Egypt’s President Mohamed Mursi said during his first visit to Sudan on Friday that cooperation between the Islamist regimes in Cairo and Khartoum does not pose any threat and yet they both face “enemies.”

“We in Egypt and Sudan are integrated, and you will find enemies for this integration,” Mursi stressed before thousands of people, including his Sudanese counterpart President Omar al-Bashir, at Al-Noor mosque in Khartoum North.

It was not clear to which “enemies” he was referring.

Sudan has some domestic Islamists, but it’s safe to say that Morsi is not referring to them. Sudan climbed into bed with Iran which led to a visit from Israeli warplanes trying to shut down advanced missiles being shipped to Hamas.

Morsi probably is not referring to Iran. Sudan has been playing both the Sunni and Shiite axis like a stringed violin. al-Bashir is not about to turn on Iran. Morsi could be referring to debates over the Nile’s waters between regional countries, but calling them enemies would be too strong. Even for Morsi.

Morsi could be referring to Israel, but while Sudan is on paper quite committed to destroying the Zionist Devil, etc… like the rest of the Muslim world, and has even made the occasional contribution to the effort, Israel does not care what Sudan and Egypt do together. At this juncture, they’re both enemies and Sudan is not much of a threat to Israel. It’s an unstable backward slave state with some oil. And Israel has too many other problems to do more than spare a random thought for Sudan.

That leaves the United States and Europe. Those are the places where pressure is greatest on Sudan over its nasty habit of mass murder and mass rape and ethnic cleansing. And those are the countries that backed the Arab Spring and would have tried to pressure Morsi not to go to Sudan.

And he repaid them by not only going to Sudan, but warning about the common enemies that want the two Islamist regimes to be divided.

    One place you should consider is Ethiopia, which has a Christian majority. They are looking into damming the Nile to generate power, much as Egypt did at Aswan, decades ago.

      Isn't Ethiopia a country w/o a future? Or at least a future increasingly dominated by Islam. I'd think it no accident a huge proportion of Ethiopia's Jews made aliya to Israel.

        Ethiopia is not increasingly dominated by Islam. In fact, it has a reputation of resisting Islamist colonialism for generations. It's been majority Christian for roughly 1700 years. Islamist activism, so far has been quickly stamped out by the government there. Egypt has no future, not as it is. There will probably be a civil war there. They will be too busy fighting each other than an outside entity real or imagined. The Jews of Ethiopia were making Aliya in the 80's, long before any Muslim Brotherhood power structure was in place in Egypt. That has nothing to do with it. If you mean it in a prophetic context, it should be noted that the Ethiopia of scripture is not referring to the modern Ethiopia, rather Sudan (ancient Cush), which interestingly enough is Islamist. Ethiopia of today was known as Abyssinia.

      Interesting observation. It's possible they could be talking about Ethiopia, but Ethiopia is apart of an upstream alliance of Nile water sharing which include countries like Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan, and others. Is Egypt and Sudan going to wage war on all of these nations? If Ethiopia is this mysterious "enemy", then they might as well include other countries that want to use their part of the White and Blue Nile. I actually think the "enemy" is Israel. They have impeded the trafficking of arms from Sudan to Hamas, as well as Sudan's collaboration with Iran.

    Morsi is an agent of the Brotherhood Mafia. The Brotherhood Mafia is the spearhead of the ENTIRE Islamist front, for the submission of all to Sharia Law. Al Qaeda is part and parcel.
    Westerners must internalize:regardless of their inter-tribal warring, and whatever names they gives themselves, they have common goals. They converge/morph as necessary. So too with Sunni (the Brotherhood) and Shia. So when the time is ripe, Iranian mullahs and Egypt's Brotherhood (and their offshoots) will merge. Thereafter, they will duke it out for hegemony.

    Morsi, Morsi, don't you stop,
    Just let the blades go chippety-chop,
    The sword go swish,
    And the heads roll down,
    Giddy-up! We're Caliphate bound!

    • Michael Copeland

      It is a satire, of course.

      • Smote

        Understood.

    Hitler and Stalin danced the same dance before ole uncle Adolf blew in his pants and attacked Russia. All murderers have a common ground and are cut from the same cloth. More is the pity for those poor innocents caught in the middle.

    If Egypt didn't house some of the most beautiful and significant treasures of the ancient world, then I'd say nuke the place. As for Sudan, which is nothing more than a dusty toilet… who cares?

    This is an international movement involving violence. It will happen here if we allow.it to. The answer is to not use foreign laws in our courts. Periodically sharia is.acknowledge by a US judge.
