Egyptian President Defends Anti-Semitic Views
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 19 Jan 2013 | John Semmens

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi says those criticizing his rants against Jews “are taking my remarks out of context.”

“It is easy for those living in comfort to overlook the incessant insult the Jewish prosperity in Israel inflicts upon its neighbors,” Morsi complained. “Faced with the same inhospitable environment as we are in Egypt, the Israelis mock our grinding poverty by living well. They have no oil wells, no gold mines to make them rich. That they are makes us look like fools.”

Morsi attributed Jewish prosperity to “satanic powers. What else could it be? The Prophet (peace be upon him) clearly depicted them as the descendants of apes and pigs. Only a deal with Satan himself can explain how they can rise above the same conditions that stymie righteous Muslims.”

“The proper context is that Muslims all over the world are being taken advantage of by Jews who are in league with the devil,” Morsi claimed. “Yet this fact is being suppressed by the same Zionist-controlled media that mindlessly condemn me as being unjustifiably anti-Semitic.”

The US State Department issued a brief statement urging that “we not apply western value systems in situations in which they may not be appropriate. If we have not walked in a man’s shoes can we fairly judge the path he has chosen? Things that may seem wrong from our protected perspective may appear right from another.”

This is satire but sadly, a lot of it could be true. He and our beloved State Department both claimed he was taken “out of context,” as if calling someone an ape or a pig had a context.
