Iran Commentary: Letter to Peres Reveals Mursi`s `Real Face` to Egyptians
Jomhuri-ye Eslami Online
Sunday, November 11, 2012

A spokesman for Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, left, denies sending a letter hoping for peace in the region to Israel`s President Shimon Peres, right. (AP)

Unattributed commentary: “The Fate of Israel`s Faithful Friend”

This summer (beginning 21 June 2012), while The Jomhuri-ye Eslami Newspaper published an editorial identifying the new Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi and deduced that he cannot be considered to be from the fabric of the revolution of the people of Egypt, a few whose sympathy, pure intent, and honesty cannot be doubted, faulted the paper with a tone which went further than mere criticism and called the editorial a result of the newspaper`s pessimism. At that time we could not talk as clearly about this issue as we can today and prove our claim. Although it was completely clear from Mr Mursi`s speeches, in which he announced that Egyptians are faithful to the entirety of Egypt`s foreign agreements, that he wants to make everyone understand that he recognizes the legitimacy of the Zionist regime, he is bound by the Camp David Accord, and that warm and friendly relations with (the Zionist) regime is one of his government`s plans ... (ellipses as published).

Muhammad Mursi`s conduct in Tehran (including what he said and did as well as what he did not say and did not do), his meetings with American emissaries in Cairo, especially that country`s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, his position regarding Syria, what he said and did during his trip to America, the dollars that he received from Saudi Arabia, and the arrangement that he made so that his first foreign trip after his assuming the presidency would be to Saudi Arabia, all showed what is being revealed by the Egyptian newspaper, Al-Ahram : the new Egyptian president is the faithful friend of Shimon Peres, the head of the Zionist regime. More clearly, it has been shown that Mr Mursi is the faithful friend of the Zionist regime itself and is no different than Husni Mubarak who, due to his outstanding services to the Zionists and America, became the object of the wrath of the people of Egypt and was overthrown.

It was only in the last two weeks during the anniversary of the execution of Anwar al-Sadat, the former Egyptian president who was executed by the revolutionary officer of the Egyptian Army, that Muhammad Mursi met with Al-Sadat`s spouse and children in Cairo`s Presidential Palace and gave them Anwar al-Sadat`s Medal of Honor. Anwar al-Sadat is that same person who signed the shameful Camp David Accord in America with Menachem Begin, the prime minister of the occupying and tyrannical Zionist regime, and with the unprecedented bewilderment of Arab countries, recognized the legitimacy of that regime and paved the way for the normalization of ties between some Arab countries and the Zionists. It was after this shameful act that Imam Khomeyni, on the 11th of Ordibehesht of 1358 (May 1, 1979), by issuing a directive, ordered the Iranian foreign minister at the time that “considering the treacherous pact between Egypt and Israel and the Egyptian Government`s unquestioned obedience of America and the Zionists,” relations between the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran with the Egyptian Government to be severed.

The shameful Camp David Accord aroused the intense wrath of the Egyptian nation toward Anwar al-Sadat. This same issue led to a number of revolutionary officers of the Egyptian Army deciding on his execution and this revolutionary act was carried out by Khalid al-Islambuli, and Anwar al-Sadat, the traitor, received his just punishment by the bullets that were fired from this revolutionary youth`s weapon while attending an Egyptian Army parade in the month of Mehr of 1360 (month starting 23 September 1981.) Imam Khomeyni praised this brave act and advised the Egyptian people not to be tricked by America and not to obey people such as Anwar al-Sadat who are slaves of America and the Zionists.

Khalid al-Islambuli was martyred in the court of injustice of Husni Mubarak`s government, and the government of the Islamic Republic named one of Tehran`s streets “Shahid Khalid al-Islambuli” in his honor and now this name still shines on the apex of this street.

Two days ago, the Al-Ahram Newspaper published in Cairo printed the text of Muhammad Mursi`s letter to Shimon Peres, head of the Zionist regime, in which he introduced Egypt`s new ambassador to occupied Palestine to Peres. In this letter, Mursi called Shimon Peres his “dear and honorable friend” and wrote: “Due to my deep interest in showing friendly relations, which has fortunately united our governments to each other, I introduce Mr Atif Muhmmad Salim Sayed al-Ahl to you as my ambassador.” In his letter he stressed his friendship with Shimon Peres and his fondness of the tyrannical Zionist regime by saying: “I am honored to wish your excellency happiness and good fortune and welfare, comfort, and prosperity for your country.” (Mursi) concludes his letter with the statement “Your faithful friend, Muhammad Mursi - Presidential Palace of Egypt.”

In explaining the contents of this letter, the spokesperson for Egypt`s president said: “This is a formality.” But the media of the Arab world rejected this explanation and wrote that it is not necessary to stress so much friendship, faithfulness, and interest to the other side let alone the head of the Zionist regime in formal letters.

What has been mentioned more in the criticism of the media of Arab countries is that essentially the Egyptian president, who has come to power by the revolution of the people against the pro-Camp David regime of Husni Mubarak, should not have relations and trade ambassadors with the Zionist regime. In their slogans, the people of Egypt considered the Zionist regime their enemy and they even attacked that regime`s embassy in Cairo and forced the Zionists` ambassador to flee. During the past year and a half, meaning since the fall of Husni Mubarak, the people of Egypt have repeatedly announced that they demand the severing of ties with the Zionist regime and the cutting off of gas sales and any kind of trade relationships with that regime. In such conditions, trading ambassadors with the Zionist regime and using terms that express deep interest of the Egyptian president in that regime and its leaders is not in any way acceptable to Egyptian revolutionaries. Perhaps it was due to fear from public opinion that the text of Mursi`s letter to Shimon Peres, which was written and sent on the 29th of Tir of this year (July 19, 2012), meaning three months ago, was kept hidden until now, and now that it has been revealed by the Al-Ahram Newspaper, it has caused a severe political earthquake in Egypt and the Arab world. Yesterday`s (October 19, 2012) demonstrations by the people of Egypt against Mursi and their recognition of him as being similar to Husni Mubarak were the start of this wrath.

Now that the real face of Muhammad Mursi has been revealed to the people, we must await a dangerous future for him. Egyptian revolutionaries will certainly not put up with Mursi and have decided as of now to take their opposition of him to the operational phase. The Muslim Brotherhood will also face many problems inside Egypt and the Arab world by the revelation of this act by Mursi. Even the path of what they themselves call the Arab spring will be altered and it will strengthen the current of Islamic awakening with the anti-American and anti-Zionist regime focal points. It may be too early to forecast Mursi`s fate, but this reality is not in doubt that Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood cannot have a distinguished position in the future of Egypt and even the Arab world.

Iran Commentary Says Mursi Is Implementing Contradictory Policies
Siyasat-e Ruz Online
Saturday, October 6, 2012

Commentary by Qasem Ghaffuri: “Pendulum Policy”

As (President) Muhammad Mursi is leaving behind him the first few months of his presidency, it is worth paying attention to the pattern of his international behavior. The totally of Mursi`s actions shows that he is trying to implement a series of policies on the international stage so that as the result of those policies he would be able to revive the global position of Egypt, while also ensuring that he would remain in power. On that basis, Mursi has engaged in a series of regional and international consultations.

The first element in Mursi`s foreign policy is his leaning towards Arab countries, as exemplified by his visits to (Saudi) Arabia and Qatar and his plans to visit other Arab countries. Leaning towards Europe, America and Turkey is also another policy on Mursi`s agenda. His visit to Washington and then to Turkey, alongside his consultations with various European leaders, are examples of that policy.

Many political observers stress that these policies of Mursi that are far from the revolutionary desires and aspirations of the (Egyptian) people are mainly due to his shaky position as well as due to economic necessities. This issue become clearer when we see that during his trip to Arabia he received four billion (US) dollars and during his visit to Qatar he was given two billion dollars. At the same time, when the Americans indicated that they might cancel their 450-million dollar assistance to Egypt, news sources regarded that as a challenge to Egypt`s weak economy. The course of the developments in Egypt shows that by pursuing those policies Mursi is trying to maintain his power and to improve the economic conditions in that country. Some analysts stress that Mursi`s reluctance to cancel the Camp David Agreement with the Zionists is also due to economic considerations.

At the same time, Mursi has also adopted the policy of turning towards Iran, Iraq, Russia and China, while one of the main lines of his policy is to support the Palestinians. Some analysts believe that with these policies, on the one hand, Mursi is trying to gain some concessions from the West, the Arabs and the Zionists and, on the other hand, he is also trying to pursue the Egyptian people`s demands. The Egyptian people wish to see the end of the policy of turning towards the West and the Zionists and a strong support for the (Palestinian) Resistance. In this context, by leaning towards Palestine and announcing his support for it, as well as leaning towards some other elements of the Resistance, Mursi is trying to show that he is following his people`s demands, and to gain their support for achieving his goals.

The combination of Mursi`s policies and goals and his interactions with different countries shows that there are many contradictory trends in his behavior, the most glaring example of which is his Western-leaning attitude towards Syria, while Egypt is one of the pillars of the Resistance and the Egyptian people demand the strengthening of relations with it. In view of all these factors many people stress that Mursi will not be able to implement his policies in the world, and he must clarify the basis of his policies and his leanings, especially as Egyptian people will not tolerate the repetition of the policies of (former President Hosni) Mubarak`s period, and they demand the implementation of the principles of the revolution in the context of the Resistance.

Iran Editorial Calls US, Israel `Winners` of Egypt`s Post-Mubarak Developments
Jomhuri-ye Eslami Online
Monday, July 16, 2012

Unattributed editorial: “The Real Winners and Losers in Egypt

In the name of God the compassionate and the merciful

The first civilian president of Egypt, as claimed, has not entered the presidential palace in Cairo with a free hand and sufficient power. Moreover, the picture that is drawn of the person of Dr. Mohamed Mursi and that of his ideological and political party backing by the optimistic media is not quite correct. For this reason, one cannot yet offer a precise opinion about the future of the new Egypt.

In order to approach something approximating a correct picture of the future of Egypt, several points of fact must be taken into consideration, realities that are not favorable but cannot be denied or disregarded.

First, in Egypt, power is at the disposal of the military, with careful engineering carried out by the United States. During the year and a half opportunity from the fall of Hosni Mubarak to the election of the next president, it (the United States) made all the necessary preparations for the military to be the uncontested power in Egypt, and it agreed to a civilian president when it was certain that power was in its own hands. The reason behind the several-day delay in the announcement of the results of the presidential election was that the necessary agreements behind the scenes had to be made, and Mohamed Mursi had to understand that he does not have much authority and can only occupy the presidential seat if he acknowledges this situation. Only after the United States became certain of such a guarantee did it allow the Supreme Military Council of Egypt to announce the name of Mohamed Mursi as the elected president.

Second, the principle of arranging individuals as presidential candidates was also a plan engineered by the United States and implemented by the Supreme Military Council of Egypt. The insistence on the presence of Amr Moussa, with a history of 10 years of cooperation with Hosni Mubarak, as the foreign minister of his government and the presence of Maj. Gen. Ahmed Shafiq, with a long history of cooperation with the government of Hosni Mubarak in the positions of minister, military commander, and prime minister, pursued a specific goal. The plan was that if one of these two would win, the outcome would be desirable, and if not, the grounds would exist for showing the level of the supporters of these two who represent the former regime, and this background could be used to demand a share in maintaining power in the hands of the military. That which occurred in practice was the second hypothesis, which also appears to be natural from the perspective of public opinion and will also completely open the way for the presence of the military affiliated with the United States, and the treaty partner of the Zionist regime.

Third, in the course of the presidential election--whether naturally or fabricated--the point that became clear was that, first, half the people of Egypt are indifferent to the events going on in their country, and they would not participate even in the most important event, that is, the presidential election after the revolution. Second, the person who represents the revolution faction only has one-fourth of the votes of the Egyptian people; and the difference between him and the representative of the faction that supports a dictatorial regime is only 3%. These facts were a negative point for the revolutionaries and a positive point for the counterrevolutionaries affiliated with the United States and the ruling generals, who took the utmost advantage to remain in power and reduce the authority of the civilian president.

Fourth, Mohamed Mursi himself belongs to the liberal faction of the Muslim Brotherhood; he was educated in the United States; he has a non-revolutionary outlook regarding foreign policy; and all of his Islamic characteristics can be summed up in his adherence merely to the outward aspects of the religion. In his first speech after the announcement of the results of the presidential election, Mursi emphasized his acceptance of all the foreign treaties of Egypt that were signed during the dictatorial time, an emphasis that was regarded by domestic and foreign political circles to mean Mursi`s acceptance of the Camp David Accords, and this was not denied either by him or the Muslim Brotherhood group. Even though Mursi on Friday afternoon, 9 Tir (29 June), in a gathering of the people of Cairo in Al-Tahrir Square, took the presidential oath before the people, his doing so was only for show. He took the official oath before the Supreme Court of the Constitution, and with this action, he submitted to the dissolution of the national parliament of Egypt and the amendment to the Constitution limiting the power of the president announced by the Supreme Military Council.

Fifth, these compromising positions of Mohamed Mursi have already created discontent among various strata of the people that will result in strengthening the extremist Salafi faction. Even though in order to run away from Ahmed Shafiq, the Salafis agreed to support Mursi temporarily, they have frequently announced that this was a tactical maneuver, and that they are waiting for an opportunity to achieve their goals. They will take maximum advantage of the weaknesses of the Muslim Brotherhood and the display of weaknesses and compromising positions of Mohamed Mursi, and they will make the political scene in Egypt the field for their extremist maneuvers.

The point that can be understood from the realities that exist at the present time in the political arena in Egypt is that, contrary to the picture of Egypt that is apparent on the surface, at the same time that some signs of the Islamic awakening have appeared among the people of Egypt, the political parties and groups are neither revolutionary nor Islamic in their actions. If the political situation in Egypt continues as it is, the Salafi extremists will certainly be the operators of the scene for a short time, and of course, their extremism will become an excuse for the emergence of Western tendencies and a return to the past regime. Hence, being happy with the affairs in Egypt as they appear is in fact some sort of self-deception and escaping from reality. One must understand that which is going on in the heart of Egypt and act appropriately. Otherwise, the real winner in the market of politics in Egypt will be the United States and the Zionists. In the meantime, the name of the people of Egypt will be recorded in history as the real losers.

Iran Editorial: Arab `Autocrats` Conspire With West, Israel To Stay In Power
Jomhuri-ye Eslami Online
Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Unattributed Editorial: “The Mirage of Reviving the Great Middle East Plan”

In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful.

In an interview with a Lebanese TV network, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said: “Qatar and Saudi Arabia are striving to depose the ruling system in Syria, and they are carrying out the same plans to overthrow the ruling system in Iraq.” He added: “The objective of heads of Qatar and Saudi Arabia is to topple the regime ruling in Iraq, not me.”

The Iraqi prime minister is right and his remarks are compatible with a plan, designed by the Western colonizing powers at a larger scale for the Middle East region. This plan is the restored version of the Great Middle East Plan, which the American Administration were attempting to implement during the period of the presidency of (George) Bush the junior, but after the Hizballah of Lebanon strongly defeated the regime occupying the Quds (Israel), the plan`s case was closed at that time. Following the developments in the Arab and North African countries during the last one and a half years, which was the result of the of spread of the Islamic awakening, America and other domineering powers were alarmed, and once again put forth the Great Middle East Plan, but this time America, England, France, and the Zionist regime, have invested to save this plan through using their pawns in the region especially the Shaykhs of Qatar and Al Sa`ud. The noteworthy points in the recent remarks of Nuri al-Maliki includes: “Saudi Arabia and Qatar are discussing the Arab Spring in Iraq, spending a large amount of money in this regards, holding many meetings, carrying out many actions, and spending hours to portray Iraq as a tribal regime, in which they (Qatar and Saudi Arabia) are supporting the weaker tribe. But, I am asking this question that which group of Iraqi society has been deprived from participating in the government of that country? You should better have a look at the cases of your nations and answer this question that whether or not the various layers of the society in your countries enjoy the advantages given to the Iraqi nation.” The Iraqi prime minister said: “The objective of the allegations against the Iraqi Government is not to support the Sunnis, because I have always given more advantages to Sunnis and been stricter to Shiites, but these allegations have political background.”

There are two reasons why the heads of the Arab reactionary states cooperate with the Western domineering countries and the Zionist regime to carry out the current conspiracies in the Middle Eastern countries: first, is to save the heads of the reactionary states from the roaring waves of the Islamic awakening in the region which is moving toward them, and the other point is to prevent the formation of democratic governments, which the West and the heads of the Arab reactionary states are seriously fearing and deeming to be dangerous for their interests. The pillars of the governments of Shaykhs of Qatar and Al Sa`ud are shaking. With the help of the Western powers and the Zionist regime, and through exacerbating the insurgence is Syria, creating crisis in Iraq, and of course diverting the Egyptian revolution, they are seeking to change the course of the Islamic awakening and keep Doha, Riyadh, and other Arab capital which are exposed to popular revolutions, forever away from the path of the revolution. Perhaps, that is the point that the Iraqi prime minister was trying to make when he talked about “political background.”

Currently, in addition to the creating of insurgency in Syria and Iraq, the diverting of the path of revolution in Egypt is also on the agenda of America, European powers, the Zionists, and the heads of the Arab reactionary states. The dissolution of the Egyptian Parliament by the country`s ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, and the support for Major General Ahmad Shafiq, last prime minister of Mubarak`s regime to compete with the representative of the revolutionary and Muslim wing in the presidential election, are among these plans. Now that the presidential election is over, and unofficial information about the results of this election indicate the victory of Muhammad Mursi, the candidate introduced by Muslim Brotherhood and received support by the revolutionary and Muslim wing, the Supreme Council of Armed Forces, on behalf of America, the Zionist regime, and the Arab reactionary states, have started to behind-the-scene moves to announce the victory of Ahmad Shafiq or annul the election. The choosing of Egypt to divert the path of its revolution which became victorious by the people of that country is because of determining and influential position of Egypt among the Arab world. If the Egyptian revolution remains incomplete and does not achieve its set goals, it will surely lead to two consequences: first, the popular revolutions in countries such as Libya, Tunisia, and Yemen, which currently are in the half of their ways, will face many problems and obstacles, and the second consequence is that the ground for revolution in other countries of the region will be destroyed.

These bitter facts show that a large conspiracy is underway. The course of this conspiracy which has started from Syria, will include Baghdad and Cairo, and in the future will cover other major parts of the Middle East. The main axis of this conspiracy is to confront the resistance front against the Zionist regime. More clearly, the plot that is currently underway in Syria includes confrontations with Iran and Hizballah of Lebanon, meanwhile the conspirators have also been dreaming about Iraq as well.

Even though Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is involved in conspiracy against Syria and Iraq and apparently is seeking to gain a degree of coordination with those who are thinking the same, and is hoping for the promises of NATO and America, is not aware of future plots of America and the Zionist regime. In the next stage -- of course, if they can advance this stage in the way they are planning to -- they are planning a dangerous plot against Turkey. If Erdogan does not stop pursuing the path he has taken as soon as possible, he will face a fate more dangerous than that of America`s pawns in the Arab world, especially given that the people of Turkey are strongly objecting his pro-West positions.

But, what is inevitable is that the popular revolutions in the Middle East region are continuing. The restoring of the Great Middle East Plan is surely not more than a mirage, because the Islamic awakening of the nations of the regions will never let the large move which has started, stop. Any conspiracy in Egypt or any other places in the Middle East will eventually fail. There is no doubt that the future of the region will be in the hand of the nations. Because this Islamic awakening movement which has originated from the Islamic Revolution and the ideals put forth by Imam Khomeyni (the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeyni) (may God have mercy on him) cannot be stopped, and will change the fate of the region. These changes and developments will create a new Middle East, in which there is no place for the domineering powers, and even though there many obstacles in this path, achieving this goal is possible.

Czech Commentary Sees Iran `Becoming Lost` in `New Era` Triggered by Arab Spring
Sunday, September 2, 2012

Commentary by Pavel Novotny: “Europe, Follow Egypt! It Is Speaking on Behalf of the Arab Spring”

It was supposed to be a demonstration -- proof that the less-than-predictable Iranian theocracy striving to gain control of nuclear power is not isolated on this planet.

Representatives of 120 countries arrived in Tehran for a meeting of the so-called Non-Aligned Movement (the UN registers 193 members). The current Iranian leadership, which is among the most bigoted ones in Persian history, had carefully prepared for the meeting.

This was not only about carpets at airports. Imam Ali Khomeini, that is, the actual leader of Iran, spoke at the beginning of the meeting of the non-aligned. He kept silent about Syria, whose dictator, Bashar al-Asad, is supported by the Tehran regime. But he lashed out at the United States and the UN -- and reiterated that his country did not want a nuclear weapon, but only nuclear energy (which few people believe).

According to Khomeini, last year`s political tsunami, known as the Arab Spring, is a belated, but only necessary, continuation of the Iranian Islamic revolution from 1979. Iran Deserves Change

So much for the usual Iranian agenda. However, times are changing. What used to be a routine “anti-imperialist” tea party of the non-aligned turned into a drama when Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi described support for Syrian anti-Al-Asad rebels as a “moral duty” and condemned Al-Asad`s regime.

The delegation sent by the Syrian dictator then demonstratively left the meeting, which the Iranians, as the organizers, could not do.

Morsi also voiced doubt that the revolutions last year, which called for dignity, followed up on the Iranian post-revolution experience. While Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya are tottering, but still (perhaps) heading for freedom, Iranian revolutionaries enthusiastically set out to consistently liquidate their opponents. They are murdering and torturing young Iranian people to this day because they disagree with the rigging of the election.

What follows from the above?

1) No matter how much Iran is trying to present itself as the avant-garde of the Islamic world, it is now at its tail. A new revolution would come in handy for it. It is even losing the sympathies that it has ever had in the Muslim world.

2) Although particularly Western Islamophobes are trying to depict Egyptian President Morsi as an incorrigible radical, Morsi has -- at least for the time being -- acted primarily as an Egyptian, and a moderate one on top of that. In contrast to Western diplomats who have doubts, he also insists on democracy in the case of Egypt and Syria.

This is because a new era, in which not only those in power in Iran are becoming lost, began last year. Even many experienced Westerners -- commentators and politicians -- do not see beyond their horizons. They viewed the Muslim world as a battlefield of the Cold War (at best) or, in a worse-case scenario, as a territory of unpredictable indigenous people subconsciously longing for an iron hand.
