Egypt's Islamist leader opposes peace with Israel

Source: AP

CAIRO (AP) The top cleric from Egypt's fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood has denounced peace efforts with Israel, urging holy war to liberate Palestinian territories.

Thursday's call by Mohammed Badei came just a day after Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, who also hails from the Brotherhood, succeeded in brokering a truce to end eight days of Israel-Hamas fighting.

Under the deal, Gaza's ruling Hamas is to stop rocket fire into Israel while Israel is to cease airstrikes and allow the opening of the strip's long-blockaded borders.

Badei says "jihad is obligatory" for Muslims and that peace deals with Israel are a "game of grand deception." He says there's been enough negotiations, the "enemy knows nothing but language of force."

1. Well President Mohammed Morsi has certainly upset someone then.

He will just need to get over it.

5. Add him to the list

Some religious extremist knows for sure that God wants him to go tell a bunch of younger men, who want to work, not fight or die, to go fight a bunch of other younger men, who don't want to fight or die, either.

Whether it's Pat Robertson or Mohammed Badei, they all disgust me.

No god ever told any of them any such thing, and yet a whole bunch of people will die violent deaths because these old farts say God wants them to. Like Helen Thomas said, "FOR WHAT?"

7. Someone needs to do a rewrite of AP Headlines. This reverses the roles of Morsi and Badei

the Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist organization, but Mohamed Badei is a Sunni cleric, which makes him an Islamic leader. Mohamed Morsi holds a secular office as President of Egypt. Morsi is also head of the Islamist political party which represents the Muslim Brotherhood.

This header gives the misleading impression that Morsi opposes peace with Israel.

8. Misleading to those who only read headlines

and not the subsequent narrative in a link. Its quite obvious here when some OP subjects get rec'd far faster than conveys that link has been opened and actually read.

Well spotted anyway.

9. That's most readers. That's AP.

Reuters has its own problems. NYT headers can also be disconnected.

If you want any news value from these sources, read these things from the bottom up. Often you can stop after the 4th paragraph.

But I might get banned, so I shall refrain.

I'm still laughing, however...

11. Dead man talking

This guy has shit for brains and is in a hurry to get his 72 virgins. The problem with the insane is that they never want to take the trip alone, or at all. They never have or will have the courage to strap on a bomb vest and do it. They never grab a rifle and go to the front.

Are they that religiously insane to not even consider Israels weapon of last resort?

The people need to spend more time studying history and less in the Koran.

Maybe they could live long enough to enjoy the brighter side of Islam.

War is not going to solve this problem in their favor. Working with the international community might.

I hope I am wrong.

18. There is no contradiction between Mohammed Badei and Morsi.

They are both of the Brotherhood and have the same position, while one is emphasizing a strategic point and the other is engaging in tactical diplomacy. The truce is quite obviously used to politically and militarily bolster Hamas and to reorganize Egypt's relations with Israel, away from the post-Camp David statis.

20. That

 

would be tough to do, looking at the United States' Interests. Israel is the U.S. Interests in the area. If you look at the overall environment, the U.S. has established and trying to solidify a favorable Government in Libya. The Muslim Brotherhood will have unrest if they try oppress the other groups in Egypt. If you have large groups in your country which oppose you, then your government will never be stable. It is in Morsi's interest to co-operate with the U.S.

Let Hamas claim victory but the real country that made both sides adhere to talks was the U.S. And we can cause trouble for both, militarily,domestically and politically. We just aren't boasting about it because we are responsible and use to it. We just have to take care of our own extremists that want to conquer the World and install their religious fanaticism.
