Hot Mic Catches Egyptian Politician Discussing ‘War’ with ‘Enemies’ Israel and America

Just last month, Secretary of State John Kerry quietly sent Egypt an additional $1.3 billion, even though Egypt has failed to live up to democracy standards. That largesse didn’t stop a prominent Egyptian politician from talking about Egypt’s “enemy” the United States in what some pundits are classifying as a classic and embarrassing “hot mic” moment.

President Mohammed Morsi gathered a group of politicians last week who thought they were speaking privately at a parliamentary meeting. But as seen in an Egyptian television video of the meeting — excerpts of which were later translated by the Middle East Media and Research Institute (MEMRI) — they were actually on live television, cringingly discussing secret ways to stop Ethiopia’s Nile River dam project which threatens water flowing to Egypt.

I’m very fond of battles. With the enemies, of course – with America and Israel, but this battle must be waged with maximum judiciousness and calm. Even though this is a secret meeting, we must all take an oath not to leak anything to the media, unless it is done officially by sister Pakinam [el-Sharkawy, a Morsi aide]. We need an official plan for popular national security, even if we…

They assume that Mr. Obama and Secretary Kerry sent those billions despite this attitude, not BECAUSE of it!

This story is obviously untrue. Everyone knows that when the US gives $$$billions$$$ to muslim countries who hate us it always causes them to change their minds and love us. /s

These are his kind of allies. Wouldn't surprise me if Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, the DPRK and Argentina aren't getting Barry Bucks.

Why would you think that? America’s enemies are Obama’s friends.

Hopefully all that high tech weaponry we gave them was made with a secret backdoor shutdown.

One of these days there is going to be a hot war between the West and a large part of the Islamic world. No one should be surprised because they tell us exactly what they think and exactly how much they hate us and they demand the West’s conversion to a Medieval version of Islam and the West refuses to hear it.

Sorry, Read your post again and figure it has to with wording, on your point. Yes, the West ignores what these savages are doing, and I apologize again.

Classic case of Taqiyya being employed by the Muslim Bro’s and endorsed by Obama...in the meantime, it’s arab spring to McCain and Graham, where love is in the air and every muslim is just another Abe Lincoln ready to blossom.

Thanks Whenifhow.

But as seen in an Egyptian television video of the meeting... they were actually on live television... Magdi Ahmad Hussein, chairman of the Islamic Labor Party, suggested that all present vow not to leak any information to the media... "I’m very fond of battles.

Even though this is a secret meeting, we must all take an oath not to leak anything to the media, unless it is done officially by sister Pakinam [el-Sharkawy, a Morsi aide]."
Then brother John Kerry cut them a check.

Our NSA, FBI and Homeland Insecurity are too busy looking for some conservative to frame. They can’t be bothered with real terrorists planning to kill US citizens.

Sorry but the NSA, FBI, and Homeland are only concerned about white middle class, middle aged conservative white men who might cut their funding if elected...

Kerry's a fool - or he's on the take or both...
