In a video published to YouTube Monday, Egyptian TV host Ahmed Moussa accused President Obama of being “connected to the terrorists who carried out the attack” in San Bernardino, Calif., and said in no uncertain terms that he should be tried and given the death penalty.
At one point, he suggested Congress send Obama to the guillotine, but twice he recommended that an even more painful sentence be meted out to U.S. commander in chief :
They should take Obama and stick him on an impalement rod,” he said. “This is what they would do in a respectful country.
Talk about being tough on crime.
According to MEMRI, which provided a translation, Moussa’s comments aired on the Egyptian Sada Al-Balad TV channel on Dec. 5.
Here’s the video:
A post at the Right Scoop adds:
He points out that his beef is not with the American people, who he says are very respectful, but with Obama who said just days before the San Bernardino terrorist attack that there is no threat to American citizens. He called Obama a liar again and said that all allies of terrorism are liars.
The blog said Obama has a lot to answer for, and observed:
Remember Egypt is a country who has basically gone to war with the Muslim Brotherhood to squash them and are very acquainted with terrorism. They are fighting ISIS groups in the Sinai Peninsula and the Muslim Brotherhood within their borders. They are probably next in line to Israel as having done the most to fight terrorism in the Middle East.
This is not the first time Obama has been thrashed by Egyptian media.
It’s probably safe to say the media in Egypt won’t be invited to any White House parties any time soon.
