At least 73 people were killed and hundreds injured. And of course we all know that Islam is a Religion of Peace, and therefore it simply isn’t possible that its peaceful and moderate adherents would ever be moved to violence. It must therefore be the fault of…the Zionists!
“Egyptian MP Mustafa Bakri: America and Israel Are Responsible for Port Said Soccer Bloodbath,” from MEMRI, February 2 (thanks to Wimpy):
Following are excerpts from a statement by Egyptian MP Mustafa Bakri, which aired on Sawt Al-Sha’b TV on February 2, 2012.
Mustafa Bakri: Our country is entering a state of anarchy. This anarchy is caused by America, Israel and the former regime. Look at the New Middle East scheme. Don’t talk about all the minute details. What happened in Port Said is a continuation of what happened in Muhammad Mahmoud Street, in Al-Qasr Al-Ayni Street, across from the government, across from Maspero, and in the soccer match against Tunisia. They are all connected. It is an attempt to bring this country down.
