Video appears to have "disappeared without a trace"

Reader comment on item: Is Sisi Islam's Long-Awaited Reformer?

"Yes, Sisi's comments are stronger, but he is not a religious authority and, in all likelihood, they too will disappear without a trace."

Video of that speech has apparently disappeared from YouTube and MEMRI. I watched it and forwarded it many times. Can Middle East Forum direct me to a copy?

If indeed, that video is no longer available, the story behind its withdrawal would be fascinating. And telling.

I see that the version I referenced, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POGpIt2U4s4&feature=youtu.be, still there.
