Poisoned Fruit of The Arab Spring: Jews Are "Descendants of Apes and Pigs"

The Muslim Brotherhood has a long and secret relationship with the U.S. and British governments. Mohamed Morsi, leader of the powerful group and current President of Egypt, was hailed by the Obama administration as the fruit of the Arab Spring. This fruit has turned sour, as expected.

Morsi made very disgusting and racist comments about Jewish people. He said they are "descendants of apes and pigs." He says the comments must be put into the context of Israel's illegal assault on Gaza, but nothing can justify his racism and ignorance. There is a right way to resist Israeli oppression and a wrong way. Morsi is doing it the wrong way. Those who call people of different backgrounds "apes and pigs," have little minds. 

For more information, read "Morsi’s Slurs Against Jews Stir Concern." An excerpt:
Nearly three years ago, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood delivered a speech urging Egyptians to “nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred” for Jews and Zionists. In a television interview months later, the same leader described Zionists as “these bloodsuckers who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.”
James Heiser writes in his article, "Egypt's Morsi: Israelis Are "Descendants of Apes and Pigs":
"Thus far, the newly translated comments by President Morsi have drawn little attention in the U.S. media. It is hard to imagine that if any Western politician had made comments that were even remotely similar regarding either Jews or Muslims that such a politician could survive. But in the strange universe in which extremist Muslim rhetoric is simply wished away, only time will tell which Morsi is the "real Morsi": the one with the “message of peace,” or the man who calls other men the descendants of apes and pigs."
