As former Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi’s trials continue, it’s enlightening to consider what is likely to be one of the centerpieces of the trial: longstanding accusations that Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood party worked with foreign terrorist organizations, including al-Qaeda, against the national security of Egypt.
Based on these accusations of high treason, Morsi and others could face the death penalty.
Concerning some of the more severe allegations, one of Egypt’s most widely distributed and read newspapers, Al Watan, recently published what it said were recorded conversations between Morsi and Muhammad Zawahiri, al-Qaeda leader Ayman Zawahiri’s brother.
In these reports, Watan repeatedly asserts that Egyptian security and intelligence agencies confirmed (or perhaps leaked out) the recordings.
Much of the substance of the alleged conversations is further corroborated by events that occurred during Morsi’s one-year-rule, most of which were reported by a variety of Arabic media outlets, though not by Western media.
In what follows, I relay, summarize, and translate some of the more significant portions of theWatan reports (verbatim statements are in quotation marks). In between, I comment on various anecdotes and events—many of which were first broken on my website—that now, in light of these phone conversations, make perfect sense and independently help confirm the authenticity of the recordings.
The first recorded call between Muhammad Morsi and Muhammad Zawahiri lasted for 59 seconds. Morsi congratulated Zawahiri on his release from prison, where he had been incarcerated for jihadi/terrorist activities against Egypt, and assured him that he would not be followed or observed by any Egyptian authorities, and that he, Morsi, was planning on meeting with him soon. Prior to this first call, Refa’ al-Tahtawy, then Chief of Staff, mediated and arranged matters.
The presidential palace continued to communicate regularly with Muhammad Zawahiri, and sources confirm that he was the link between the Egyptian presidency and his brother, Ayman Zawahiri, the Egyptian-born leader of al-Qaeda.
It should be noted that, once released, the previously little-known Muhammad Zawahiri did become very visible and vocal in Egypt, at times spearheading the Islamist movement.
The next recording between Morsi and Zawahiri lasted for 2 minutes and 56 seconds and took place one month after Morsi became president. Morsi informed Zawahiri that the Muslim Brotherhood supports the mujahidin (jihadis) and that the mujahidin should support the Brotherhood in order for them both, and the Islamist agenda, to prevail in Egypt.
This makes sense in the context that, soon after Morsi came to power, the general public did become increasingly critical of him and his policies, including the fact that he was placing only Brotherhood members in Egypt’s most important posts, trying quickly to push through a pro-Islamist constitution, and, as Egyptians called it, trying in general to “Brotherhoodize” Egypt.
This second phone call being longer than the first, Zawahiri took it as an opportunity to congratulate Morsi on his recent presidential victory—which, incidentally, from the start, was portrayed by some as fraudulent—and expressed his joy that Morsi’s presidency could only mean that “all secular infidels would be removed from Egypt.”
Then Zawahiri told Morsi: “Rule according to the Sharia of Allah [or “Islamic law”], and we will stand next to you. Know that, from the start, there is no so-called democracy, so get rid of your opposition.”
I haven’t heard that, and would be surprised if they are. I know for sure the Sub is a Diesel-electric
We do know that Iran does not have a nuclear bomb, they’re working on it, but don’t have one yet.
What they are doing is sticking their finger in Obama’s eye, embarrassing him. But that’s easy to do, he is vulnerable on everything. He needs a better guide dog.
I said bomb, but it could be any explosive mixture they alone know,
look at now the small bottle or small tubes are being a potential for terrorist to fill it with explosif,
or what we heard of the alqaeda having succeeded to make an invisible explosives no one yet can define the content,
yes the word bomb has many meaning now, we mentaly see it as a big black ball, but now it could be a pencil look alike,
THE PEN OF OBAMA WHO WANT TO DISOBEY THE LAWS OF THE LAND, BY ENSLAVING THE AMERICANS
AND LOOK AT ONLY ONE TERRORIST WITH A WEAPON CAN MAKE A PLANE CRASH
JUST BY COMING IN FRONT AND THREATEN TO BLOW IT IN A PARALYSING VOICE WHICH YES TERRORISE THE CREW AND THE PASSENGERS , BEFORE THEY REACT IF THEY CAN OR ONE BRAVE DECIDE TO RISK HIS LIFE TO MAKE A DECISIVE AND WELL DONE ACTION.BY KILLING THE TERRORIST, BUT MOST OF THE TIME HE IS LEFT ALONE TO DO IT,
AND THE OTHER ARE TOO AFRAID OR COWARD TO GIVE HIM A HAND,
ALTHOUGH WE HAVE SEEN THE PASSENGERS RAISE UP AND PUT DOWN THE TERRORIST, BUT NOT OFTEN,
Bees, please tell us where you are getting your information that Iran has nuclear vessels in it’s fleet. I’ve been scouring the web and I found nothing but Diesel powered ships.
As Redteam wrote, Iran mobilized their fleet to put it out of reach of Israel’s aircraft. Nor is there any reason why their ships can not travel in international waters. Their idle threats of attacking America with those ships are just that. They would be very foolish indeed to move into American waters to rattle their sabres, and any attack on our shore would result in automatic all out military reprisal against their fleet.
I read it somewhere and it shock me enough to retain it in memory,
it was somewhere they themself said it,
and from there I figure they could also bring nuclear bomb if they are power by nuclear engines,
it was some times ago when they appear in the public media and where still working on their bombs,
before KERRY and the meeting with other COUNTRIES, WAY BEFORE,
I went to google and ask for : IRAN NUCLEAR ENGINE WARSHIPS,
AND GOT INFO TO INTEREST YOU,
IRAN NUCLEAR SHIP CALLED, -N- 172547792 HTML JULY 15 2012,
FROM YAHOO NEWS, AN IRANIAN PARLEMENTARY COMMITY,
HAS APPROVE A BILL REQUIRING THE GOVERNMENT TO DESIGN NUCLEAR SHIP,
AND ALSO ABOUT IRAN SUBMARINE GAMBIT BY ZACHARY BECK,
NEW TECHNOLOGICAL PLAN FOR OIL TANKERS AND WARSHIP ENGINE.
AND MORE OF,
Apparently, Iran announced they were going to develop nuclear propulsion for some of their Merchant ships, not Navy ships, to show that they need to develop nuclear for peaceful purposes. Even if they ever got approval to do that, it would take many years to develop and build a nuclear merchant ship. You might want to know that I believe only one nuclear merchant ship has ever been built, the NS SAVANNAH, back in the 60’s and none others are planned. The Savannah is available for tours in Baltimore, MD.
edited: About 4 other nuke merchant ships were built by other countries, but only one is still in operation as an Ice breaker, by Russia.
thank you, what I found above was from 2012, AND THEY ARE VERY LEARNED WITH THAT TECHNOLOGY,
ALSO THEY WHERE ORDER TO WORK ON A PLAN, THEY SURELY DID,
AND IF THEY COME HERE TO HIDE THEIR WARSHIP, THERE IS A REASON FOR IT, BETTER THAN
BE AFRAID TO GET IT DESTROY, THEY MIGHT THINK ALSO OF ATTACKING ISRAEL FIRST,
THEY SAID IT SO MANY TIMES,
did you hear that IRAN had made scenario of attacking ISRAEL and the USA,
just lately and let this known publicly,
THAT MAKE THEM NOT TO BE TRUST,
Iran has been fantasizing about and developing scenarios for attacking Israel and the US since the fundamental extremist Ayatollahs seized power.
maybe we could give them a scare by stopping them and demand to visit their ship,
which they cannot refuse, if they want to continue, we can tell them that we don”t appreciate their
So long as they are in international waters, the US Navy’s game is observation. If they cross into our territorial waters, the watchers move in to warn them off. If they do not comply : warning shots. if they continue : the coral will have a new reef to grow on and stylish hermit crabs will be sporting the latest in Iranian officer’s hats.
glad to know they are being watch,
OBAMA take them as friend,
because his friend VALERY JARRET is an IRANIAN helper,
EDIT, SHE SPEAK THE TONGUE AND WAS THE IN BETWEEN IRAN AND OBAMA SECRET TALK BEFORE HE SEND KERRY TO MAKE A DEAL,
CHECK WHAT I EDIT ABOVE ON THE PREVIOUS COMMENT,
GEORGIA , OH GEORGIA,
HOW DARE YOU TAKE OUR WINTER, HOW DID YOU DO THAT,
IS IT AN AGGRESSION ON THE NORTHEN COMMUNITY?
SOME OF OUR UNIONIZE WORKERS ARE TOLD TO GO HOME ,
NO STORM NO WORK IN THE NORTH,
YOU HAVE ATTACK THE PEOPLE OF THE SNOW, BY STEALING OUR SNOW,
WE WILL INVADE YOU IF YOU DO IT AGAIN,
LOL I’m sure they would give it back if they could.
they are miserable, and i was trying to open a smile on their faces,
IT DOES HELP SOMETIMES,
Bees,, I’m a native Georgian and believe me, they take what they want.
from the outside would you reconize one warship with nucleor engine as oppose to the other,
if you watch ii in your bynoculor ?
ANOTHER BIT I heard at fox news is that someone had put down a plane
with a lazer focus on the plane,
I heard only part of the news, and that”s something i heard and was thinking ,
of why many planes drop down,
@ilovebeeswarzone: Most nuclear ships don’t have a ‘smokestack’. I saw one photo of the iranian ships they say may be off the coast and one of them had a lot of smoke coming out of a stack, so that one was definitely not nuclear. Two other ships looked identical to that one, but were not smoking, but did have smokestacks. I don’t think they have any nuke ships.
maybe they smoke a pipe instead,
just kidding BYE
This is getting to be a common danger for airline pilots, because immature, twisted, idiots think that is funny to try to blind pilots with hand operated lasers.
YES AND I think they are responsible for PLANE CRASH WITH DEATH RESULTS,.
this gadget should be ban, because they found an evil use to destroy, so that is not a fun toy,
it is a weapon of mass destruction, NO MATTER HOW WE LOOK AT IT,
HOW COME IT HAS NOT BEEN DONE YET,
YES THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS DEAD, RUSH IS RIGHT ON,
THEY ARE NOT SERVING THE PEOPLE, IN THESES LAST 5 YEARS,
is in’t there a screen which should be use when,
the plane is in a city and land or depart, before getting too high to be SAFE,
THIS IS NOT A NEW THING, AND WHY IT HAS NOT BEEN BAN IS OUTRAGEOUS,
The problem is blocking laser light without blocking vision. There aren’t many options. Reflective film might help, but it would have to be on inside of the cockpit glazing and it would limit nighttime vision. Filtering only works on a specific frequency of light and might also block port or starboard navigation lights. The following is the only reasonable solution right now: New glasses help police helicopter pilots block laser pointer beams
yes glass, for low flying especialy helicopter,
am I right to say when they are at a certain hight ,
the lazer cannot touch them?
i think i got it, the solution is to have an eye glass made only for the part of the eye,
the middle of the eye must be the vulnerable part TO BLIND WITH A LASER,
SO A TINY GLASS TO FIT THE MIDLE DARK CIRCLE ONLY,
AND ON BOTH EYES,
BUT I HAVE NO IDEA IF IT COULD STAY PUT IN THERE, AND IF IT COULD BE EASY TO PUT IN AND REMOVE,
yes< maybe they smoke a pipe to cover up the NUCLEAR ENGINE,
WHICH DOESN'T MAKE ANY SMOKE,
just trying that one,
would you know by looking only outside if they have more human than the crew?
The sunglasses form is better as they can be quickly put on and removed. Contact lenses can be a hassle and take far too long to insert.
YES but i was trying to fix the problem you raise of cutting the pilote his view,
ANOTHER THING I JUST THINK IS CLEAR GLASS NO GLARE MIGHT WORK, OR CLEAR GLASS WITH
MY LITTLE COLOR CIRCLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GLASS AJUSTED EXACTLY WHERE THE DOT IN THE EYE MIDDLE IS, BUT ALL BLEND IN THE PAIR OF GLASS, HE WOULD LOOK LIKE AN ALIEN WITH IT,
BUT WHO CARE FOR THE LOOK, HIS WIFE IS NOT WITH HIM,
No. But they can’t be nuclear. To design, buy and install a nuclear reactor and get fuel for it, the whole world would know. They don’t have any nuke ships.
what kind of fuel a nuclear warship would Require?
WOULD IT BE A TUBE LIKE SHAPE COUNTAINER LIKE IRAN HAS
MULTIPLY IN THEIR NUCLEOR WORK PLACE,
THAT’S WHAT COME TO MY MIND, AND IT LOOK VERY HEAVY TO TRANSPORT THOSE COPPER TUBES, in a warship,
i’m just thinking of two of those nucleor engine propelled ships attacking each other would be a catasthrofic explosion ,
also for milles and the cities around there also would be destroyed, yes?
and do you think the RUSSIAN THANKER NUCLEOR ENGINE POWERED
BEING USED IN ARTIC, WOULD IMPACT THE LIVING MAMMALS
AND OTHER FISH AND ANIMALS making it a danger on their healt and lives,
which is send to human who eat it RAW IN THERE,
I’m thinking of maybe that is where the depletion of those come from that source, instead of climate they call it,
@ilovebeeswarzone: No, there is no nuclear leakage from vessels.
AMID KARZEI IS A TRAITOR TO AMERICA, AN ENEMY, HE IS MAKING THE PRISON OPEN TO TALIBAN KILLERS
AND MADE A DEAL WITH THE TALIBAN,
YOU SHOULD HAVE LISTEN WHEN I TOLD YOU TO KILL THE TALIBAN, EVEN IF THEY PUT THEIR GUN DOWN, YOU PUT THEM IN PRISON AND KARZEI LET THEM GO TO KILL THE AMERICAN WARRIORS STILL IN THERE ,
NOW YOU HAVE TO BRING THE TROOPS BACK NOW, OR YOU WILL HAVE THEIR LIVES ON YOU,
AND YOU OBAMA WON’T BE FORGOTTEN FOR ALL THE LOST LIMBS AND DEATH OF THE BRAVEST,
just now on FOX NEWS
RUSSIA have many icebreakers IN ALASKA including 6 BY NUCLEOR PROPELLED,
IS IN ALASKA BELONG TO USA?
This is nothing new. Russia has had nuclear powered ships and submarines for decades.
YES BUT i heard only one, now 6, it seem to grab the attention of elected people,
saying they have to match the size of it and why are they there in ALASKA,
according to Google, they have 6 nuclear powered ice breakers and have one nuclear powered freighter to service those ice breakers.
The safety of nuclear powered vessels has been very good.
Bees, I originally said 1 nuke ice breaker, but that was apparently old news.
they multiply quite fast, WHY, WHAT ARE THEY DOING IN ALASKA AMERICAN OWN,THEY ARE CLOSE TO
CANADA ALSO, THIS BELONG TO US, EACH,
ARE THEY STEALING OUR MAMMALS, AND OUR FISH, AND ANIMALS,
NO NOT THAT,OUR INUIT PEOPLE NEED THEIR BLUBBER TO SURVIVE
so if it”s that safe why dont we have any here,
I THINK, it”s because we have lots of oil,
am I right?
I don’t think it’s about the safety, the US just doesn’t have the need for icebreakers that Russia does. All their ports have lots of ice, whereas almost no US ports have ice.
okay, but if the winter DECIDE TO INVADE THE SOUTH AS THEY ARE DOING NOW,
ICE BREAKER MIGHT BE HANDY YES?
