Egyptian President Morsi Insulted Over Viral Tisha b'Av Video

This video put out by the Temple Institute has been online for just a few days and already has nearly 200,000 views. That is viral, at least by Jewish content standards..

Pretty good video content, awesomely filmed and set, in my opinion.

The Egyptians, though, of all people, think otherwise.

I had expected to possibly hear some protest from the Palestinians, and maybe even from the Jordanians. But the Egyptians?

According to this report on NRG, the new president of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, is upset and the video and considers it a provocation. In the newspaper held by the adult, and dropped near the end of the clip, bears the image of Morsi. Morsi claims that the message transmitted is that Israel plans to build the Temple to the indignation of Morsi. Morsi has instructed the Egyptian Foreign Ministry to prepare a response.

Talk about overly sensitive.

Anyway, since this video was not put out by the Israeli government, he should really just be ignoring it. Nothing the Temple Institute says or does, no matter how much I like them and the work they do, is binding on the Israeli government nor is it representative of the Israeli government. one can appreciate the content, one can enjoy the content, one can dislike the content, but at the end of the day it should not be the cause of a diplomatic incident.

  1. You're using your Jewish mind (logical, nuanced)to try and understand how an Arab mind (conspiracy-driven, paranoiac, hysterical)works.

  2. Jewish mind, LOL.

    you are a bunch of barbarians.
