Everyone’s got their priorities. Including the guy who nominated John “Al Quds” Brennan and Chuck “Iran” Hagel. Morsi is a priority for the administration that helped put him into power. Netanyahu is a problem that Obama wishes would go away. (Weasel Zippers)

President Obama on Monday called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his-reelection in last Tuesday’s parliamentary elections, according to a White House read-out of the call.

The White House congratulated Islamist candidate Mohammed Morsi on his election as Egypt’s first freely elected president, calling it a milestone in the country’s transition to democracy.

President Obama called Mr. Morsi and defeated candidate Ahmed Shafiq on Sunday and commended both men hours after Egypt’s election commission confirmed that Mr. Morsi, the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood party, defeated Mr. Shafiq, the last prime minister of former President Hosni Mubarak.

“He emphasized his interest in working together with President-elect Morsi, on the basis of mutual respect, to advance the many shared interests between Egypt and the United States.”

Apparently terrorizing Egypt and imposing Islamic law is a shared interest between Egypt and the United States. Who knew?
