During elections, one of the biggest criticisms against President Muhammad Morsi was that he was just a stooge for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, Muhammad Badie — who recently called for a jihad on Israel.  Of course, the Brotherhood and Morsi brushed aside such talk, saying the latter was his own man, that his policies for Egypt would have nothing to do with Brotherhood interests, etc., etc.

Amazingly, however, a couple days ago on Egyptian satellite TV, a Muslim Brotherhood official actually admitted that “Yes, the Supreme Guide rules Morsi.”  Here is the Arabic video.

The discussion was in the context of the ongoing protests against the Sharia-pushing president.  At one point, the MB official says “The people are calling for the fall of the Supreme Guides rule and the fall of Morsi,” to which the host interrupts him by saying “What, does the Supreme Guide rule?”

The MB official responds: “Yes, the Supreme Guide rules Muhammad Morsi.”

The host, visibly amazed, makes a gesture of resignation and says, “Well that’s it; it’s over; what else is there to say”…

Raymond Ibrahim, a Middle East and Islam specialist, is author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). His writings have appeared in a variety of media, including the Los Angeles Times, Washington Times, Jane’s Islamic Affairs Analyst, Middle East Quarterly, World Almanac of Islamism, and Chronicle of Higher Education; he has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN, PBS, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, NPR, Blaze TV, and CBN. Ibrahim regularly speaks publicly, briefs governmental agencies, provides expert testimony for Islam-related lawsuits, and testifies before Congress. He is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center; Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow, Middle East Forum; and a Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution, 2013. Ibrahim’s dual-background -- born and raised in the U.S. by Coptic Egyptian parents born and raised in the Middle East -- has provided him with unique advantages, from equal fluency in English and Arabic, to an equal understanding of the Western and Middle Eastern mindsets, positioning him to explain the latter to the former.
