White House 'strongly condemns' Morsi slurs against Jews
politico ^ | 1/15/13 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 01/15/2013 11:58:54 AM PST by ColdOne

White House press secretary Jay Carney said the administration "strongly condemns" slurs made against Jews and Zionists by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

Morsi, during a speech in 2010 and subsequent television interview, urged Egyptians to “nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred” for Jews and Zionists and then slammed Zionists as “these bloodsuckers who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs,” the New York Times reported.

"President Morsi should make clear he respects people of all faiths," Carney said during a press briefing Tuesday.

That was awfully big of the White House to “strongly condemn” — whatever that means — the hateful comments by the Egyptian president . . . by the way Mr. Morsy, how many more billions would your country like from the U.S. government?

Morsi was quite clear on his opinion of other religions.

If the Obama administration “strongly condemns” such words from Egyptian/Muslim Brotherhood Morsi, why are we still going to give them fighter aircraft?

Well I hope they wrote a strong written letter condemning his comments. That should do it.

What Morsi said was tame compared to anything that Obama has probably said behind the scenes about the Jews

0bama should've thought about FUNDING the Jew-hater Morsi before he cut the check.. Of course the Jew-hater Morsi will STILL get the checks and a new arsenal of F-16's to threaten Israel with.

Listen to what 0bama or Carney SAY? No. Watch what they DO.

I bet behind closed doors Morsi and bama have already planned a release date for the blind sheik.

Releasing the Blind Sheik was the original plan on 9/11..but it backfired in Obama’s face that is why he left everyone to die in Benghazi, the original plan was for Stevens to be kidnapped and for Obama to release the Sheik but it backfired when Woods and the others went in to help

Obama approved F-16 fighter jets as gift to Egypt

Despite instability due to the new Islamic government in Egypt, the US is sending more than 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt as part of a $1 billion foreign aid package.

What, did it take over two years for the White House to find out what the words mean? September 2010 was not long before the midterm election.

By a weird coincidence, late in March 2010, when Morsi was ranting about Zionists having plundered the land of Israel out from under the loving stewardship of Arab invaders and occupiers, Obama was berating, belittling, disrespecting, insulting, and humiliating Netanyahu right in the White House.

Thanks ColdOne.

Because WE ddn’t find out until now. If we hadn’t found out, carney would not even have known about it...and the administration would have kept its silence.
