Does the global 9/11 truth and justice movement have an ally in Egypt’s president and aspiring dictator, Mohamed Morsi?
Apparently, Morsi isn’t too big on the idea that Al-Qaeda struck America on September 11, 2001. He believes 9/11 is a sacred myth that serves to legitimize Washington’s counter-terrorism policies at home and abroad, as do most Egyptians, by the way.
Here is an excerpt from an article that appeared in The Washington Post on September 11, 2012, called, “Getting Egypt’s Morsi to give up his 9/11 ‘truther’ talk”:
Morsi has not been shy about airing his odious views. In a May 2010 interview with Brookings Institution scholar Shadi Hamid, Morsi dismissed al-Qaeda’s responsibility for the attacks. “When you come and tell me that the plane hit the tower like a knife in butter, then you are insulting us,” Hamid reported Morsi as saying. “How did the plane cut through the steel like this? Something must have happened from the inside. It’s impossible.” Similarly, in 2007, Morsi reportedly declared that the United States “has never presented any evidences [sic] on the identity of those who committed that incident.” In 2008, he called for a “huge scientific conference” to analyze “what caused the attack against a massive structure like the two towers.”
While Morsi has been silent about 9/11 since becoming president, the Brotherhood’s emergence over the past year as Egypt’s leading political force hasn’t moderated its “truther” rhetoric.
Morsi is right. 9/11 was an inside job. The consensus about the 9/11 events was politically engineered by officials in the U.S. and Israel, and their partners in the mainstream media. The good news is that this myth-based consensus is collapsing.
But, to tell you the truth, it is a bit unnerving to be on the same side as Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in this historic debate. These political opportunists have no integrity and lack respect for the rule of law. Their vision for Egypt is as totalitarian as Washington’s vision for America.
Muslim leaders who tell the truth about 9/11 are not fans of intellectual freedom, truth-telling, and representative government. Morsi is clearly not a fan of any of these things. He has a low tolerance for public opinion. Does he remind you of anyone?
Morsi’s rush to power after organizing a ceasefire with President Obaaama is a sign of terrible things to come under his reign. Like all ambitious politicians he sees no problem in exploiting minor political victories for his own self-benefit.
Roula Khalaf and Heba Saleh write in The Financial Times in an article called, “Morsi has squandered Egypt’s goodwill”:
“Mr Morsi, moreover, did nothing to build consensus before issuing his decree – even his advisers and his justice minister appeared surprised. He also misread the strength of opposition and the depth of attachment to the rule of law.
Most damning for him – and dangerous for Egypt – the Islamist who was developing into a national leader has been reduced to a controversial partisan figure, squandering much of the goodwill he had won in recent months.”
Washington seeks to gain from Morsi’s Islamist authoritarianism. If Morsi plays ball with the guy carrying the bat, and it appears that he will, then in Washington’s eyes he can become the meanest dictator in the Arab world.
Washington has not turned the page on its imperial history just yet. A new Mubarak in an Islamist veil will do just fine for Uncle Sam, thank you.
Historian F. William Engdahl said in an interview with Russia Today on Friday, November 30:
“Some people in Washington actually want this. They think this is a vehicle. It’s an internationalist Islamic organization. It’s a secret society much like a Masonic organization that operates un-transparent. And the CIA has had dealings with the Brotherhood since they brought them out of Egypt into Saudi Arabia back in the early 1950s, and before that, British Intelligence. So I think they feel that they have a known entity in the Brotherhood and they might be in for a stark surprise.”
Morsi shares his disdain for democracy with Obaaama and Washington’s globalist elite. But if he wants to get in their good graces, he would be wise to stop broadcasting the truth about 9/11 from his pulpit and learn to serve rather than dictate.
