By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
The Muslim Brotherhood is setting the stage to retake Egypt. To that end, at least seventeen Egyptians were killed yesterday. The Brotherhood has called on their people to take to the streets.
The rhetoric is getting ugly and it is dangerous. The Muslim Brotherhood website calls Adli Mansour, the new president of Egypt, a Jew. First it calls him a 7th Day Adventist. Then it says that Mansour wanted to get closer to Christianity but the Coptic Pope refused to baptize him. Then it calls him a Jew.
The Brotherhood is also trying to skewer Mohammed el Baradei, one of the leaders of the opposition. They claim that he refused to join the Sharia Council unless they recognized that there was a Holocaust.
On the website a famous TV personality named Ahmed Mansour (no relation) said this about the Holocaust and el Baradei: "This is a token gesture offered to the Jews by el Baradei so that he can become President of the Republic in the fake elections that the military will guard and whose results they will falsify in their interests ... All with the approval of America, Israel and the Arabs, of course.
"This is the glorious scene of the future of Egypt and the Arabs, who competed to recognize the coup, the coup whose drum the secularists are dancing to ... even to the extent that one of them, who hates religion, Islam and the nation announced that he has been reborn ... and that his date of birth is 30/6, that is, the day the army of defeats staged a coup against ballot box legitimacy."
Conspiracy theories abound.
