You just can’t make this stuff up folks…… Yet the sheeple?
Egyptian President Morsi:
“I don’t want to take unusual steps, but if I see that the homeland is in danger, I won’t hesitate.”
“Gaza will not remain alone as it was,” adding that the aggressors “know they will pay a heavy price is they continue their aggression.”
He further said that the post-Mubarak Egypt was completely different and that all Egyptians were determined to stop the offensive on the Gaza Strip.
“The blood spilled over there will not get the other side peace and will serve as a curse on them. It will incite all the people of the region against them.”
And what does President Obama do? He thanks him….. (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama called Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi on Friday to commend the country’s efforts to help calm the situation in Israel and Gaza and underscored his hope of restoring stability there, the White House said.
Egypt’s prime minister, Hisham Kandil, has said Cairo is prepared to mediate a truce in the growing violence between Israel and Hamas, the Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip. Egypt’s government is allied with Hamas, but is also party to a 1979 peace treaty with Israel. (article)
Earlier in the day – “The price will be high if the aggression continues,” Morsi said after he performed Friday prayers in Fatma Al-Sharbatly Mosque in Cairo’s Fifth Settlement.
“We assure them [Israel] that the price will be high for continued aggression, and [we tell them] you have to bear the responsibility,” Morsy continued.
During Morsy’s speech, worshipers chanted: “Khaybar, Khaybar, Oh Jews, the army of Mohamed will return,” in reference to a historical battle fought between Muslims and Jews in Saudi Arabia. (more)
