Dr. Pipes

It seems that Mr el-Airyan who is also an advisor to Morsi re-appeared after his bizarre invitation to el-yahood el-masiriyeen to leave Paris or is it Israel and retrun to Egypt so Palestinians can take their places now he is saying that he will "kill" any Jew who return to Egypt! Oh I'm shocked

But the most interesting news from the bizarre world of el-ikhwan in Egypt is what to do with the shrine of Shiekh Abu Hasira and the many Jewish visitors that visit the site for his muleed (birth day celebration) and for those of you not familiar with Abu Hasira: He is a Jewish sage that has a shrine in Damanhour which is a city just south of Alexandria and he is venerated by the Jewish people as well as by many muslims

And here is some recent news about el-ikhwan and Shiekh Abu Hasira from masrawy.com

And this is the most interesting item

ونقلت صحيفة "الأهرام" عن مصدر أمني نفيه تلقي محافظة أو مديرية أمن البحيرة أي تعليمات بشأن تأمين سياح أو زيارات إسرائيلية لمقبرة "أبو حصيرة" الذي يحين موعد الاحتفال المزعوم بذكرى مولده فى نهاية ديسمبر من كل عام

So what is says here is that al-Ahram reports that from reliable government information from el-bahira province that there are no instructions for the safety of Israeli citizens to the tomb (shrine) of Abu hasira during the celebrations for his birth date every December

I read this as Morsi has no clue what to do with this shrine or with the crazy invitation of his assistant el-Airyan to Yahood masr to return to Egypt

But again the worst enemy of el-ikhwan are the ikhwan themselves
