Muslim Brotherhood Admits Supreme Guide ‘Rules’ Morsi

Egypt’s real boss?

During Egyptian presidential elections, one of the biggest criticisms against President Muhammad Morsi was that he was just a stooge for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, Muhammad Badie — who recently called for a jihad on Israel.  The logic was that Morsi’s function was simply to fulfill the Guide’s will, which is the absolute Islamization of Egypt.

Of course, the Brotherhood and Morsi brushed aside such talk, saying the latter was his own man, that his policies for Egypt would have nothing to do with Brotherhood interests, that he was a president for all Egyptians, etc., etc.

Amazingly, however, a couple days ago on Egyptian satellite TV, a Muslim Brotherhood official actually admitted that “Yes, the Supreme Guide rules Morsi.”  Here is the Arabic video.

The discussion was in the context of the ongoing protests against the Sharia-pushing president.  At one point, the MB official said “The people are calling for the fall of the Supreme Guide’s rule and the fall of Morsi,” to which the host interrupted him, saying “What, does the Supreme Guide rule?”

The MB official responded: “Yes, the Supreme Guide rules Muhammad Morsi.”

The host, visibly amazed, made a gesture of resignation and said, “Well that’s it; it’s over; what else is there to say”…
