Morsi Claims his Comments Were Taken Out of Context

There’s apparently a context that it would be alright in, though what that context is remains unknown. Perhaps the politicians who insist on sending Morsi hundreds of millions of dollars and powerful armaments can enlighten us. But Morsi assured McCain that the statements were taken out of context and that he was referring to Zionists, not Jews, even though he quite clearly referred to Jews.

“We must never forget, brothers, to nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred for them: for Zionists, for Jews,” Mr. Morsi declared. Egyptian children “must feed on hatred; hatred must continue,” he said. “The hatred must go on for Allah and as a form of worshiping him.”

Even non-Arabic speakers can clearly make out “Yahood” or “Jew” in Morsi’s speech. And in the other video, Morsi refers to Israelis as “the descendants of apes and pigs”. That’s a racist Islamic term for Jews that long predates the modern State of Israel or Zionism.

Similarly, Morsi also states, “They have been fanning the flames of civil strife wherever they were throughout history. They are hostile by nature.” This obviously isn’t limited to recent events. It’s a classical anti-Semitic reference to Jews in general.

Furthermore, Morsi stated, “They must not be given any opportunity, and must not stand on any Arab or Islamic land. They must be driven out of our countries.” Countries, plural. He clearly isn’t limiting himself to the destruction and ethnic cleansing of Israel. He’s talking about the ethnic cleansing of Jews in general, a policy first implemented by Mohammed, the founder of Islam.

Morsi for his part assured McCain that he respects all religions, emphasizing religions rather than peoples. Since many Islamists do not believe that Jews are really Jews, this is a convenient bit of Taqiya. It sidelines the real issue which is his call for war and his racial bigotry.

But the Muslim Brotherhood knows how easy it is to mollify politicians and reporters with a pro forma condemnation. The best proof of that is that while McCain criticized Morsi, he’ll still try to get him 500 million dollars.

    Yea right, that quote is so easy to take out of context, it happens all the time. I'm sure it works for our msm.

      I seem to recall that Morisi had said the he WOULD NOT RUN FOR POLITICAL OFFICE, then he went and ran & gained the Presidency of Egypt

      Egyptian's, I hope you're happy now with Sharia Law, keep your hands out of your neighbors pockets, or you'll find yourselves with only one hand instead of the two you were born with

    With all of his bombastic rhetoric you would think he was looking for a fight, well Obama
    is sending him the means of conducting a fight, F-16's and tanks, Israeli's better hide,
    the Egyptian Camel jockeys will have American weapons, funny, in Egyptian hands they
    do not seem to formidable. When Egypt attacks the Israelis will respond with a few teens
    with slingshots, my money is on the Israelis……………………..William

    Is his name Morsi? I thought it was Moron all this time….LOL

  • JacksonPearson

    Morsi is using "taqiyyi and kitman" to the fullest, and Sen. John McCain being the gullible fish that he is, took it hook, line and sinker. McCain will believe a lying Muslim, but not a truthful Rep. Michele Bachmann!

    I keep posting this comment over and over, but other than verbatim and meaning, how in the hell should anyone take it?….:

    Egypt's new president Morsi stated: "The Koran is Our Constitution, the Prophet is Our Leader, Jihad is Our Path, and Death in the Name of Allah is Our Goal."

    Taquiyya and kitman are as easy for the likes of Morsi's Brotherhood Mafia, in the same reflexive way that healthy folks breathe. Easy peasy.

    This is the true face of Morsi and gang –

    Most intrinsically, ALL of Barack HUSSEIN Obama's Islamic plans run through Egypt….through his favored Islamist to lead the charge – Morsi.

    You terrorists are always misunderstood by rest of the world, the only one who understood you clearly was Adolf Hitler and now Adolf Hussein Obama…

    It appears that the BBC have appointed themselves as the chief architects for sanitizing Morsi's comments. They are actually rewriting what he actually said so that it is more politically acceptable. This will enable Morsi apologists henceforth to refer to the BBC website for Morsi's 'actual comments' and hence history is conveniently rewritten to fit their narrative. See BBC Watch:

  • IsraelFirster

    They were taken out of context because someone was smart enough to translate his comments from Arabic to English

  • Ben Jabo

    Morsi is going to visit the USA, I'm willing to bet that the Blind Sheikh who was responsible for planning and implementting the first attack on the World Trade Center, will be on Morsi's return flight to Egypt.

    Obummer will claim that it's a Good Will gesture..
