Egyptian TV Host Begs Netanyahu to Bomb Iran
"Our dear friend Netanyahu. Please - Iran faces you and the Bushehr reactor faces you. Put your trust in God and bomb it. We are with you. And if you need fuel for the jets we will give it to you."
Those were the words of Egyptian television presenter Tawfik Okasha, owner of the private television station Al-Faraeen. Okasha notedly despises both Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. He openly advocates Arab tourism to Israel on his television station. Okasha is not the only Egyptian television host to speak out in support of Netanyahu.
Yet, Okasha's support for Israel may be convoluted at best. A "staunch supporter" of Egypt's ruling military council, Okasha has also accused the Obama administration of rigging previous Egyptian elections in favor of Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi, "as part of a plot to seize Egyptian oil fields and turn them over to Israel." His conspiracy theory-esque logic has earned him the dubious title of Egypt's "Glenn Beck."
