Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi to restart relations with Iran to bring strategic ‘balance’ back to the region

One of the first things he announces is plans to restart relations with Iran that were severed over 30 years ago, all to bring strategic ‘balance’ to the region. But no don’t worry, he really wants Democracy and freedom. We know because he said that’s what he wanted and words mean everything. Right?

DAILY MAIL – Egypt’s Islamist President-elect Mohammed Morsy has said he wants to restore long-severed ties with Tehran to create a strategic ‘balance’ in the region, in an interview published on Monday with Iran’s Fars news agency.

Morsy’s comments may unsettle Western powers as they seek to isolate Iran over its disputed nuclear programme, which they suspect it is using to build atomic bombs, which Tehran denies.

Diplomatic relations between Egypt and Iran were severed more than 30 years ago, but both countries have signalled a shift in policy since former president Hosni Mubarak was toppled last year in a popular uprising.

We must restore normal relations with Iran based on shared interests, and expand areas of political coordination and economic cooperation because this will create a balance of pressure in the region,’ Morsy was quoted as saying in a transcript of the interview

    Them vs US, I should think. Now, I’m no expert, but I think the President is doing a bang-up job dealing with the Middle East so far. 3.5 years in to his rein, but 4-8 more and he should really be into the groove of things.

  • Yeah, that crazy Cassandra Glenn Beck was predicting the Muslim Brotherhood would unite with other branches of Islam, and various useful idiot radicals to try to rebuild the Caliphate. What a moron!

    Wait, what?

    Never mind.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Great point. Glenn may have been a little twitchy during the GOP Primary… but he was spot on with all of this years ago. I commend him on his insight and vision. He was right.

    • steprock

      It’s like that crazy guy stocking up on food and guns. He’s nuts!

      Until, of course, the crapola hits the fan, then you want him to be your best friend. Glenn gets it right.

  • GreenBeretWay

    Strategic balance? Code for let’s unite Egypt with Iran to blast the crap out of Israel.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Yeah, you’re so right. He was using his “peaceful voice”. The devil is seriously in the details.

      • GreenBeretWay

        Look at the man in the photo.You are looking at the devil.God help Israel.That’s all I can say.

  • Well, isn’t that special. I wonder how the Persians and Israeli’s feel about this renewed token of friendship. Gee, thanks dear leader- you’re swell. I gotta love those who think those of us who believe in Bible prophecy are nuts when they are actually working towards fulfilling Bible prophecy.

    Let’s see, Iran to threaten the straits of Hormuz, Egypt controls the Suez Canal and Turkey controls the the waterway to the Black Sea. All of the above will soon be in bed with Russia and China and Europe will roll over and play dead like a possum.

    Do we still have influence in Panama or is that Chinese too?

    We will soon be pushed out of the Middle East.

    Welcome to change with no hope.

    “And so Iran can give us nuclear weapons too.” Heh, he forgot to mention this.

    Is anyone really surprised? Anyone? Obama is either an unbelievable idiot, a conspiratorial traitor or both. He encouraged this and now supports the spread of radical Islam in the region… from the guy who has Israel’s back. He’s a boob and should have never been elected in the first place. You don’t hire a dishwasher to function as a manager.

    And Egypt… congratulations! You wanted slavery, corrupt subjegation of women, Sharia law, beheadings, the end of the world, and all that… well great job being duped by terrorists. Great job furthering the cause of the worst blight on humanity ever. Thanks for cementing evil in the region and bringing on the Caliphate. Enjoy your loss of freedoms and slavery. You’ll make great drones and cannon fodder.

    The white lining to all of this is that things are rapidly shaping up for the return of our King. I can’t wait for Jesus’ return! Hallelujah!

      “And so Iran can give us nuclear weapons too.” Heh, he forgot to mention.

      And more, now that we can buy them with the US dollars Hussein sends us”. He forgot to mention that one too!

      • Sober_Thinking

        True dat… that’s the salt in the wound.

    Not to be an alarmist, but: ALARM ALARM ALARM.


    OK just had to get that out there.

    “We must restore normal relations with Iran based on shared interests…”

    Got it! Would one of those “shared interests” be “wiping Israel off the map”? If you nuked Israel, how soon afterwards would you want to move in?

    How’s about if both of your “nations” were nuked first? Would anyone on the face of the globe want to move into your wastelands? Would anyone miss any of you? I know most of the civilized world wouldn’t. Look up that word civilized if you don’t “get it”.

    Why can’t you psychos learn to, wait for it…wait for it…LIVE AND LET LIVE!?
    YOU SUCK! You deserve Hell, Fire, and Brimstone, forever.

    There, I said it. Suck it.

    • Easy there mybear. They’ll get their due…. and the world will know how evil they are and how Mighty Our God is.

        Now git! The fish are calling.

        • My hubby’s fishing right now. Don’t know how many will bite in all this wind we’re havin’ today. Do fish like tornados? 😉

          Go git’ em brother!

            Not usually, but tornadoes (as water spouts) bring ’em out of the water better than a net.

    • Cindy09

      Don’t give them ideas! That’s how Fast and Furious started, they flooded the market with US guns and waited to see where the guns go and who will use them. I hope Hussein does not get the idea of doing the same experiment with the nukes!

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Whoa, what a shocker! Who among us average citizens didn’t see this happening even as Dear Leader was happy by these developments? We can kiss the Middle East goodbye…it’s over. Dear Leader said he was going to make the world love the USA. Didn’t happen, and I’m sure he’s satisfied with the on-going developments in that part of the world. I HOPE there is a CHANGE in November…the US can’t afford four more years of Nobama’s brand of (non)leadership.

    • Rshill7

      I’m concerned about the next 4 minutes pilot!

      Ok, gotta go fishing to calm the nerves. “Boaty’s” chompin’ at the bit, and a sugar cube just won’t get it.


    • steprock

      How much damage has been caused in his wake? I know the economy was crap when he walked in, but the global scene will be crap for the next President. (Oh, and so will the economy still. And Mitt WANTS this job???)

  • Nukeman60

    Let’s try to put some Whittle logic to this:

    Obama backs the ‘Arab Spring’, and then calls and praises Morsi on his victory.

    Later Morsi says he’ll restore relations with Iran and restore ‘balance’ (read ‘Caliphate’)…

    On a separate thread, someone in the Obama administration leaks the Iranian computer virus to the NY Times.

    The NY Times basically ‘informs’ Iran of the Stuxnet virus…

    One more thread, Iranian students attempt a peaceful revolution and political takeover.

    Against all worldwide appeal, Obama refuses to give any kind of support (physical or verbal) to the protestors and the ‘Iranian Spring’ fails…

    A to B to C — Any logical person, whether using their own deductive reasoning or just plain common sense, would say, “Hmmm, methinks Obama is in cahoots with Iran and wants the Caliphate to succeed. I’m just saying…

    • steprock

      Don’t be crazy. He won a Nobel Peace Prize just for being himself. He wouldn’t want trouble, now would he?


      The only issue I see there is that the USA was complicit with that Stuxnet virus. What is the plan in leaking that? Is it bragging that we attacked Iran, or something in your theory where he hands the ME over on a silver platter?

      • Nukeman60

        Simply put, it allows Iran to be aware of process, causing it to be harder down the road to do again. Also, it helps to rile up the islamists against the US and Israel.

  • James1754

    Now we get to see what throwing allies under the bus will get Obama. Establish diplomatic relations with the number one sponsor of terrorism in the world. Let us see, what could be the reason?
