Dr. Pipes

I just wanted to keep you informed of this Morsi disaster.

I have a slight correction to make: Bassem spells his last name as Youssef and not Youseef as I was spelling his name

Now here is the real reason why Morsi just cannot stand Mr Youssef and he wants him arrested

This past year the Israeli journalist Rafael Aharon leaked the copy of a letter that was sent to President Shimon Peres of Israel from Morsi where he called Mr Peres: azizi wa 3sadiqi al-3azeem or عزيزي وصديقي العظيم or my very dear and great friend

and here is a copy of the letter in Arabic

Then Bassem Youssef informed his audience of the letter

And as usual the Muslim Brotherhood did not like such letter to be leaked as they do not want to see clueless Morsi a friend of the "jews" and because they are a bunch of liars and the existence of the letter was denied and when it became clear that this letter indeed existed they claimed that it is a fake after all how can Morsi be a good friend of a Jew! And here is the denial by el-ikhwan

And here is great summary of this stupidity by Morsi and el-ikhwan

But this was not the end of it as it seems that Bassem Youssef also showed to his audience Morsi's now infamous video where he calls the Jews pigs and monkeys!

And his point was how can he be friends of pigs and monkeys and no Mr Youssef is not an anti-Semite he just wanted to prove to Morsi and his followers that they are a bunch of hypocrites and liars

Now we know why Morsi wants to arrest Mr Youssef
