The White House was shocked to hear and see that President Morsi in the past may consider the Jews as the grandchildren of pigs and Monkeys. Senator John McCain raised the topic too thanks to the New York Times’ report about the videos of Morsi in the past.
For the record the video people are sharing about the grandchildren of pigs and blood suckers, Morsi did not say specifically he meant the Jews. The video is edited and he was speaking mostly about Zionists but what said commonly mentioned to insult the Jews.
Mohamed Morsi and his administration think that the American and the Western media are fool enough to believe that Morsi’s statements were tempered and edited to appear like that as well taken out of context.
But the Western media is not fool because attacking Jews and not Zionism only is part of the Muslim brotherhood’s literature and it is enough to hear the chants and the slogans of the MB rallies in solidarity with Palestine especially the Past. I think MEMRI
got huge archive for the Muslim brotherhood. It is not a new thing. What is new that superficial shock, yes superficial shock of American administration.
The American administration knows very well about how the Muslim brotherhood looks to the Jews and Zionists but it had to act like this after the New York Times’ report in order to keep its image as a fighter of anti-Semitism in the so-called free world.
What was shocking and surprising for Egyptians for real is how Mohamed Morsi and the official MB’s talk changed after the elections when it comes to Israel , Jews and Zionists after years of seeing the MB attacking Mubarak for using the similar talk with Israel and Zionists. I do not understand how after years of attacking Mubarak because of the Qiz agreement , the MB does not only ignore its cancellation completely as they demanded the ousted president but rather extended it in Egypt !!
Of course the hateful talk needs a long post. It is enough to see what the MB members write about Christians and even other Egyptian Muslims who oppose ideologically and politically to know there is something wrong , something hidden has appeared on the surface.
I know very well how positions change people and what is in the heart is in the heart but .. these double standards make many people angry. This is what Bassem Youssef was trying to say in his show last week.
I am not that shocked that the Muslim brotherhood in the leadership changed its talk as politics is truly dirty but I am truly shocked that the MB leaderships are deceiving its young members claiming that the opposition icons and groups like ElBaradei and April 6 Youth are working with the Americans, Jews and Zionists to bring down Egypt.
I ca not take it anymore from the MB double standards honestly.
