Yesterday, Iranian president Dr. Ahmadinejad began his historic 3-day visit to the largest Muslim Arab nation, Egypt. While in Cairo, he will attend the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) meeting as President of the Islamic Republic of Iran – and as Chairman of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). Ahmadinejad is the first Iranian President to visit Egypt since Imam Khomeini-led 1979 Islamic Revolution toppled US-Israeli agent King Reza Shah Pahlavi.
In addition to meeting leaders of 57 Muslim nation-states attending the OIC meeting, Ahmadinejad is scheduled to meet Grand Sheikh of al-Azhar Ahmed al-Tayeb. It will be part of Iran’s Spiritual Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamemei’s efforts to counter Saudi-Qatar sponsored Shia-Sunni sectarian divide for the benefit of Israel and western colonial powers. Before leaving for Cairo, Ahmadinejad in an interview with Beirut-based satellite channel al- Mayadeen slammed the Muslim rulers fanning Shia-Sunni conflict to help Zionist entity and save their pro-Western crumbling regimes.
“The political geography of the region will change if Egypt and Iran take a unified stand on Palestinian resistance. If they (Egypt) allow it, I would certainly go to Gaza to meet my brothers and sisters over there,” Ahmadinejad told al- Mayadeen.
Ahmadinejad received a red-carpet and 21-gun salute welcome at Cairo airport. Egyptian President Dr. Mohamed Morsi receieved Ahmadinejad at the termac with traditional Arab kisses on cheek. According to Iranian media, Ahmadinejad during his private meeting with Morsi at the airport – discussed the renewal of diplomatic relations between the two nations and need for resolving the Syrian conflict without foreign military interference. Later, Dr. Ahmadinejad may meet the West Bank ruler Mahmoud Abbas during his stay in Egypt.
Egyptian President visited Tehran to attend NAM conference as the out-going chairman last year.
Jewish daily Bloomberg commented on Ahmadinejad’s visit as “symbolic” – but a “test” for Morsi’s good credentials among the (pro-Israel) western leaders and their puppet regimes in the Arab world. “The visit by Ahmadinejad, whose nation is under international sanctions for its nuclear program, highlights the balancing act Morsi faces. The Egyptian leader has been eager to reaffirm his commitment to the security of the Arab Gulf states whose support and goodwill is key to propping up the economy,” wrote Tarek El-Tablaw on February 5, 2013. I suppose the Zionist fool doesn’t know that Saudi Arabia has not even reopened its embassy in Cairo. He also raised the usual sectarian bogey of Sunni minority (15%) being mistreated in Iran – but no mention to Shia minorities in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Indonesia, etc. being killed and tortured by pro-West Sunni regimes in those countries.
Israeli daily the Jerusalem Post wrote: “Such a visit would have been unthinkable during the rule of (pro-Usrael) Hosni Mubarak, the military-backed autocrat who prserved Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel (for annual US bribe of $1.3 billion)“. The major bone of content between military-ruled Egypt and the religious-democratic rulers in Tehran has been the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel which inflicted a major blow to Palestinian cause. Tehran city honored Lt. Khaled Al-Islambouli who shot Egyptian president Anwar Sadaat for signing the treaty, by naming a street after him. Sadaat earlier, gave refuge to deposed Iranian King Reza Shah Pahlavi and took King’s son as his son-in-law. King Reza Shah is buried inside an old Cairo mosque alongside his brother-in-law, the last king of Egypt, Farouk.
Jewish The Blaze, criticized Obama administration for selling 20 F16s to Egypt while it’s cozying to US-Israel enemy, Iran. Egypt received four of F16s on Sunday against the protests by the Israel-First lawmakers. US ambassador in Cairo, Anne Patterson, backed the sale by saying that a strong Egypt is in the interest of America in the region.
Joel C. Rosenberg whined on his blog: “Is this a begining of a true rapprochement between the two extremist leaders of major Shia and Sunni powers? If so, the implications for regional security – and notably for Israeli security and US interests in the region – could be troublesome. Then again, may be the two leaders are just taking each other’s measure. Either way, it’s a development worth noting and watching carefully“. I know, it’s waste of time to educate a Zionist Jew – but, for the info of the readers of this blog – the most powerful Sunni country is Pakistan, which has one million armed personnel and over 100 nuclear bombs. The next powerful Sunni country is Israel’s closet Muslim ally – Turkey. Iran, on the other hand, is the only Shia-majority country in the world.
Iranian leaders have no reason to pressure Morsi to cancel country’s hated peace treaty with the Zionist entity to foster brotherly relation with Egypt. After all, Tehran has been getting along fine with Ankara which has maintained diplomatic relation with Tel Aviv since 1951.
