Morsi’s Anti-Semitic Doubletalk

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 4, 2013

The Wall Street Journal reported on Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi’s recent trip to Germany.  His visit coincided with Germany’s recognition of Hitler’s rise to power 80 years earlier and that event’s terrible stain on humanity and Germany.

Mohamed-MorsiAfter meeting with German Chancellor Andrea Merkel, Morsi was questioned about his previously made anti-Semitic comments that included claiming Jews and Zionists were “the descendants of apes and pigs.”  Morsi’s response was typical doubletalk stating: “I am not against the Jewish faith, I am not against Jews who practice their religion.  I was talking about the practices and behavior of believers of any religion who shed blood or who attack innocent people or civilians.  That’s behavior that I condemn.”  He then continued saying that as a Muslim, he is “a believer and my religion obliges me to believe in all prophets, to respect all religions and to respect the right of people to their own faith.”  Using Mosri’s warped logic, what would be said about Islam given the over 60,000 Syrians who have died at the hands of a Muslim leader?

Mohammed Morsi is not only the president of Egypt, but he has also been a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood.  His anti-Semitic and bigoted comments say much about both his country and the organization he comes from.
