Dumbass Of The Day

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi wants everyone to know he’s not really an antisemite. It’s just that those pesky Jews who control the media make him out to be one.

morsiIn a conversation with senior US lawmakers, Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi reportedly implied that the Jews control the US media and have distorted comments he made in the past about Zionists being “bloodsuckers” and “descendants of apes and pigs.”

The meeting earlier this month between Morsi and seven US senators deteriorated sharply and nearly derailed after he made the remarks, Foreign Policy magazine reported Wednesday.

Morsi, a member of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, came under fire recently after video surfaced of him calling Jews and Zionists “bloodsuckers” and “the descendants of apes and pigs.”

The senators’ meeting with Morsi was partially intended to receive clarification on his earlier comments.

At first, the Egyptian president defended himself by saying he did not harbor negative feelings about Judaism or Jewish people.

He then launched a diatribe about Israeli policies against the Palestinians, Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) told Foreign Policy. “He was attempting to explain himself … then he said, ‘Well, I think we all know that the media in the United States has made a big deal of this and we know the media of the United States is controlled by certain forces and they don’t view me favorably,’” Coons told the magazine’s The Cable blog.

Asked if Morsi specifically named the Jews as the forces that control the American media, Coons replied that all the senators believed the implication was obvious. “He did not say [the Jews], but I watched as the other senators physically recoiled, as did I,” Coons said. “I thought it was impossible to draw any other conclusion.”

In his defense, controlling the media shows a certain sophistication, indicating the unlikelihood of being descendants of primitive creatures like apes and pigs.

    Well you are insulting good president Morsi, He is really a Dumbhamas, not a Dumbass.

    Let’s call him “Moronmorsi” from now on. How does one misinterpret “bloodsuckers” and “sons of apes and pigs?” I wish he’d tell the world what he REALLY thinks! (Laugh)

    My friendly advice to President Morsi: When you dig yourself into a hole, stop digging.

    Well, he is still getting the planes and tanks. And as “aid” not as a “loan.” Pretty pathetic of the US in this instance.

      I haven’t heard Bibi complain about it yet. History tells us that the Egyptian military is more likely to use the military hardware supplied by the U.S. to keep it’s own people in line. Not a good thing long-term, either, but this decision makes a lot more sense than the rightwing talking heads are allowing for. The weapons might even be used against terrorists who threaten Morsi’s interests as well as America’s and Israel’s.

        Terrorists by definition can not threaten Morsi’s interests.

        Military jets and tanks are not well-suited for repressing dissident civilians; they are very well-suited for doing battle with other military forces, as they did in ’73, and before that in ’67.

          If Bibi felt this transanction was a threat to Israel, I believe he would make his feelings known publicly. Tanks and planes can be used against armed terrorists planning military incursions from the Sinai into Israel. I do believe this is exactly what the Israeli government has justifiably asked Morsi to do.

    It’s worth noting that Morsi’s PhD from the University of Southern California was in mechanical engineering. So he doesn’t have the relevant scholarly credentials to speak on this subject that Mahmoud Abbas does. Abbas earned his doctoral degree from Moscow’s Patrice Lumumba U in “Jewish Studies,” focusing on the close collaboration of Jews and Nazis and on Holocaust denial/minimalization.
