Morsi Says Amen To "Allah Destroy The Jews"

From the Times of Israel:

Morsi mouths ‘Amen’ as Egyptian preacher urges ‘Allah, destroy the Jews’

Egyptian TV shows president in fervent prayer as cleric delivers anti-Semitic address

Sun October 21, 2012

Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi participated in prayers over the weekend in which the preacher urged Allah to “destroy the Jews and their supporters.”

In footage of the service from Matrouh governorate’s el-Tenaim Mosque screened on Egyptian state television on Friday, Morsi was shown in fervent prayer as cleric Futouh Abd Al-Nabi Mansour, the local head of religious endowment, declared, “Oh Allah, absolve us of our sins, strengthen us, and grant us victory over the infidels. Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate Your might and greatness upon them. Show us Your omnipotence, oh Lord.”

According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Morsi could be seen mouthing “amen” to these sentiments…

Just wait until Mr. Obama finds out that Mr. Morsi has been denigrating someone’s religious beliefs. Then there will be hell to pay.

Egypt TV host gets jail term for insulting president

by Marwa Awad [sic] | Mon Oct 22, 2012

Oct 22 (Reuters) – An Egyptian talk-show host faces a four-month jail term after a court convicted him of insulting President Mohamed Mursi, state media reported on Monday.

Tawfiq Okasha, whose show appears on his own channel, can appeal the sentence after paying 100 Egyptian pounds ($16.39) bail, a source in the court in southern Egypt said.

"Mursi is the President of all Egyptians and insulting him is like insulting the whole nation," Nasr El-Din Mahmoud Maghazy, who filed the case against Okasha, told Reuters.

The substance of the offending insult was not immediately available from court sources…

This is the same Egyptian government that Mr. Obama praised for their strides towards Democracy. But, of course, Mr. Obama has his own problems with freedom of speech.
