Egyptian editor backtracks after saying 'Americans will be killed in streets'
The Guardian ^ | January 18, 2014 | Patrick Kingsley in Cairo

A prominent Egyptian editor who threatened that Americans could be slaughtered in the streets has been forced to backtrack on his remarks after they were reported by western media.

In an extreme example of the growing xenophobic rhetoric by media outlets who back the country's army chief, General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, Mostafa Bakry made the threat on a major TV talkshow, also warning the US president, Barack Obama, and his "puppets" that "we will enter their houses, and we will kill them one by one".

Bakry speculated that the US government planned to assassinate Sisi, who ousted Egypt's first democratically elected leader, Mohamed Morsi, last July after mass protests against his one-year rule.

"There is a plot to kill General Sisi, and the security services know it well," said Bakry – a pro-regime journalist known for his provocative behaviour. He then suggested that a similar US-backed plot had led to the assassination of Pakistani politician, Benazir Bhutto...

If Barak-O-Muslim and the liberals get their way that’s exactly what will happen.

I am torn. Anyone who hates this administration and its minions has my support. Any group that intends to kill Americans in the street and in their homes has my wrath. Sisi should understand that the American people is not his enemy, nor the enemy of Egypt. Let not this evil that has befallen the world decide us set us to each other’s throat.

Obama is playing evil with these people because he wants the Brotherhood running that country. What we never know is what is being done behind the scenes to stir up more trouble.
This sounds frantic to me.

Egypt's pro-regime media have increasingly portrayed any dissent – of either a secular or Islamist bent – against the current regime as an unpatriotic act.

the growing xenophobic rhetoric by media outlets who back the country's army chief, General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi,

As opposed to the full blown xenophobic, anti-semitic, anti-infidel rhetoric of the Muslim Brotherhood & Morsi's supporters?

So much for "the Messiah's" soft power in making the Muslims like us. Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (just as he has the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrate the State Department and Whitehouse) and the egyptians resent it a great deal.

Even Obama's muslim faith does not stop the hatred the Muslim world feels for Obama and the country he (mis)governs.

“A prominent Egyptian editor who threatened that Americans could be slaughtered in the streets has been forced to backtrack on his remarks after they were reported by western media.”

Probably had to back-track to Americans will be “severely injured” or “savagely beaten”.

The Egyptians would do better to systematically hunt down and eliminate media jackasses who use the talking-point phrase "Egypt's first democratically elected leader, Mohamed Morsi" in their thinly disguised agitprop pieces. Once Zero's media support is gone, he'll be holding his sore jaw with not a tooth left in his head.

Someone must of told him the United States could turn off the money spigot... Which is what we should do... immediately. Without reason or insult or any of the other garbage and lies. Just turn it off.
