Just last month, Secretary of State John Kerry quietly sent Egypt an additional $1.3 billion, even though Egypt has failed to live up to democracy standards. That largesse didn’t stop a prominent Egyptian politician from talking about Egypt’s “enemy” the United States in what some pundits are classifying as a classic and embarrassing “hot mic” moment.

President Mohammed Morsi gathered a group of politicians last week who thought they were speaking privately at a parliamentary meeting. But as seen in an Egyptian television video of the meeting — excerpts of which were later translated by the Middle East Media and Research Institute (MEMRI) — they were actually on live television, cringingly discussing secret ways to stop Ethiopia’s Nile River dam project which threatens water flowing to Egypt.

The New York Times blog reports: Unaware that their words were being broadcast live on a state-owned television channel, many of those seated around the table said the dam was in fact a secret American and Israeli plot to undermine Egypt that must be stopped at all costs.

The participants learned they were on live TV only after Magdi Ahmad Hussein, chairman of the Islamic Labor Party, suggested that all present vow not to leak any information to the media. Before being told he was on television, Hussein described the U.S. as an enemy [emphasis added]: I’m very fond of battles. With the enemies, of course – with America and Israel, but this battle must be waged with maximum judiciousness and calm. Even though this is a secret meeting, we must all take an oath not to leak anything to the media, unless it is done officially by sister Pakinam [el-Sharkawy, a Morsi aide]. We need an official plan for popular national security, even if we…

Maybe it's just me, but this really looks like it was all done on purpose.

It's almost like they were acting or knew it would be broadcast.

The part that gets me is that the US gave them 1.3 billion. Man I wish my credit was that never ending.

Sorry…am I in the wrong thread?


This does seem a little fishy but just consider Obama’s open mic incident with Russia prior to the 2012 election?


I don’t doubt Egypt’s hatred for US and Israel. After all, the ME is full of haters and murderers, and US installed the Muslim Brotherhood in place of a guy who wanted at least SOME peace with his neighbors.

The peaceful people of the ME had better reel in the radicals before the “Bomb Bomb Egypt” video gets posted…just saying!!

Gives more proof of what I posted here. This is about the guy who did the shootings in California. You know where Morsi is from. Yes President Morsi was a professor in California for years. His kids and wife are still in California.

funny

most egyptians.. over 80% think ethiopias dam is an attempt to challenge egypt

they dont need a dam...but the main point..listen to this


Nasser, Egypts old president had a big problem with the IMF not allowing him credit to build a dam...
as the IMF refused to release money to build the aswan dam...nasser nationalised the suez canal..in order to pay for the dam themselves.

so now they see ethiopoia getting funds for a dam...even though they have no international income.

yes the egyptians will see this as an act of war


turkey and egypt are being provoked at the moment...not wise...

Yours (if youre from the ME) and mine! Let’s face it….the ME has been murdering for hundreds of years. You can’t blame everything on the west!

We’re trying!! The difference in your case is that we can kick your arse! You’d better reel in the radicals and deal with them before you get the big US boot up you country’s arse. There’s not much we (Americans) can do to stop it, though we’re trying.

I’m looking out for you!

Seriously .

Talk like that really isn't making many friends in the middle east now is it? Hell talk like that won't win you many friends anywhere but there is always a few i guess .

However if your country people can't reel in their radicals who are you to demand another country to do the same then beat them up for not doing so .

I am curious about John Zawahri's connection to these comments. His Aunt is the one i posted earlier that is tied to the US and UN on Conflict Resolution and water ways. Was his attack related to terrorism? The letter in his pocket said he hopes his mother is taken care of financially after he does his attack. And when it comes to suicide bombers and terrorist Saudi Arabia and Palestinians have been known to pay the families of suicide bombers and terrorist. Do we need to add Egypt to that list now?

This is so werid!!!! If we are an enemy then why did they give a poor fellow citizen 11 yrs for burning a bible?? Seems like they wouldnt care since we are the enemy. Personally... I believe everyone has a right to burn flags or books of Nations they dont get along with to show how they feel. Everybody should have a right (in a non-violent matter against people) to show how they feel. I personally wouldnt burn anyones "bible" but some do and have and will.

Hey, the truth is a tuff pill to swallow.

If you want to continue to be victimized then keep up your attitude. It is what it is and it’s been proven many times (and probably many times to come).




However if your country people can't reel in their radicals who are you to demand another country to do the same then beat them up for not doing so .

I wish it was that easy. Before you throw stones my way (or at women for adultery) maybe you should spend some quality introspective time and figure out why you and your ME culture can NEVER seem to get along with ANYONE, including other factions within your own damn culture…

Just sayin’!

We’re not over here killing our neighbors for being infidels…..

To Egypt:

The Ethiopia Dam Project is in Saudi Arabia's interest.

When Saudi Arabia couldn't get anymore GOLD from America for oil and declared in 2007 they weren't accepting US Dollars for oil anymore....the Saud's were getting prepared to leave America long before that.

THE LARGEST Dairy Farm in the world is.....in the middle of the desert in Saudi Arabia.....where they gettin' all the hay to feed Saudi Arabia's massive Dairy Farm?.....

The Saud's want the Nile dammed....increase Ethiopia irrigation so they can export HAY to Saudi Arabia for their Dairy Farm.

Egypt....it's Saudi Arabia who want the Nile dammed. YOU ain't gonna stop Saudi Arabia.

They have NUKES now.

The corporations want the dam. It is all about supplying electricity for there future markets. It is hard to build a economy of people who buy useless things over and over again because the TV said everybody has to have one without electricity. And nuclear power will not be allowed for Africa. Libya had a couple and France was building one for them when it was attacked. I guess Qaddafi wanting to be the President of the African Union was just a little to hard for TPTB to swallow.

I'm gonna get on my soapbox for a second.

The Muslim world is SO FAR OUT in left field, so on the periphery in human relations, in a global community sense, that it is really pointless to mention that their hatred of Israel, once exhausted (and Israel out of the picture), will be reinvigorated time and again so long as infidels continue to exist.

People talk about global warming. Fine, I agree, it is a major ecological problem. But up there with global warming, in a geopolitical sociological sense, Islam is a problem. I don't mean Islam inherently poses a problem, I just mean, there are hundreds of millions (or so) million fundamentalist Muslims who practice a religion that thrived in the 11th century, who still subscribe to an outdated theological and metaphysical doctrine (al Ghazali) that intrinsically conflicts with modern philosophical and scientific premises. This is what fuels fundamentalism. This is why it is so pervasive, why it seems to go into hibernation rather than go away.

It's hard not to see a video like this and feel contempt for the Egyptian populace who voted this government in. How can they hold feelings like - conspire so readily without regard to any serious thought to coexistence? Why do they harbor such aggression towards America and Israel? A simple answer would be: because their religious Fanatics. But that wouldn't really be fair to the denizens of other religious people - Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists - who, in comparison, are relatively benign. I want a solution to this problem that will last - and getting rid of Israel is merely a band-aid, this is something that anyone who understands anything about Islam, politics and the application of logic can easily comprehend.

AHHH, but these issues far too complex for the simple folk. Once things get too "twisted", once too many variables, or a "causal nexus" becomes spoken about, they can hardly pay attention anymore. It's become too confusing. Its just easier to reject and side with the simpler - and more emotionally fulfilling - explanation. Israel = bad, Egypt = Good. Once Israel gone, Heaven on earth. And so thought the Germans too, that once the Jews were gone, there would be Valhalla on earth. But no, such utopian, extremist goals which seek to remove a perceived evil from the world always turns out bad. Whether Nazis (Jews), communists (the wealthy), Fundamentalist Muslims (non-Muslims). These people are bad.

To make matters even worse, Islam is a religion, and it is simply wrong to condemn another religion. It is therefore a PR hot button to say: Islam as a religion poses a problem for modernity, for a future global civilization. We can't say that outright. Rather, we need (and have been) to go about more surreptitiously, quietly, in the wings: inject western concepts into their education systems, expose them to western media (like pop hits, house music, etc), this will get rid of the craziness and explosive unpredictability of their Islamism.

You may think I'm being facetious, but no - there's very good reason to believe this is what's happening.

Any sane nation will do better than to think it's wise to prefer Islamists than to support Israel. You can, of course, cultivate relations with both - but you better make sure the Islamists are willing to COEXIST, and aren't planning in the background against the Israelis. That would not bode well for Israel, the West, or the Muslim world.

Egypt...what to do with Egypt....There is sooooo much we can do here.....
Morsi is a fool, talking a fools game with other fools, he had better be careful before he kicks the big American boot up his arse.

Sorry, it's hard to distinguish between someone from the ME and a ME sympathizer because they sound the same. I guess I should have glanced at your avatar.

I'm not making bigoted statements. The ME is in a perpetual state of war and has been for hundreds of years, long before my country came into the picture.
