The Immaculate Reception of the Mursi Letter: Received but Not Sent

Mursy_letter

On Tuesday, July 31, Israeli President Shimon Peres made public a letter that he claimed to have received in confidence from Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi. The letter says, “I am looking forward to exerting our best efforts to get the Middle East peace process back to its right track in order to achieve security and stability for all peoples of the region, including (the) Israeli people.” However, Egyptian Presidential spokesman Yasser Ali denies that Mursi sent the letter and says it is a fake.

It is widely assumed that one of these accounts is a lie, and there is much debate about who is telling the truth.  However, this reporter has learned that both statements are true.

In fact, it was only after much deliberation and consultation with his closest advisors, and under great pressure from the U.S. and its allies, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, that Dr. Mursi did not write or send the alleged letter.  The letter then appeared miraculously in the hands of Mr. Peres without ever having been composed, written or sent, although the precise location of its materialization is still uncertain.

This is known as the Immaculate Reception, and since the document was produced on virgin paper, it has been called the Virgin Memorandum.  Hopefully, this information will resolve and set to rest further speculation about this matter.

Dr. Mursi’s administration has made it clear that it opposes Zionism while recognizing Israel, will abide by all its treaties and agreements with Israel while supporting the Palestinian right to resist, and seeks to maintain peace with Israel, preferably based on justice, if possible.  Similarly, the government represented by Mr. Peres respects international law while deciding what types of ethnic cleansing are legal, and has refrained from possessing nuclear weapons while maintaining the possibility of developing them, which by their estimate would require seventeen seconds.  The Virgin Memorandum is therefore in conformity with the standards of diplomacy of both countries.

    I think there are many people who want to tarnish Mrsi’s image. They are the enmies of political Islam, or Islam itself. Also, it is unlikely though that Saudi Arabia would press Mursi to send a letter t Peres. This is not the Saudi style.

    We should always keep this in mind when we encounter such reports.

      “…there are many people who want to tarnish Mrsi’s image.”

      This is true, and I believe he should be allowed to tarnish his own image. Sorry if I contribute to ending his political honeymoon, but as we know, all honeymoons put an end to virginity.

      I fear that the Brotherhood is already co-opted, but if you want to give it the benefit of the doubt, please do. You’re not a person that can be deceived for long, Khalid, and I hope I am not, either.

      • Khalid Amayreh August 1, 2012 at 11:17 pm #

        He was elected neither by you nor by me. The final say belongs to the people of Egypt.

        I think we agree on this.

        The pro-Iranian posters here hate him and hate everything Sunni, especially the Muslim Brotherhood.

        I would say this is obvious.

        This peculiar variable should always be kept in mind when discussing these matters.

        Finally, I believe we should argue like academics, not like fanatical ignoranuses.

        • Barb Weir August 2, 2012 at 12:13 am #

          Arguing like academics is not necessarily a shining recommendation, as far as I’m concerned, to take Alan Dershowitz and John Yoo as examples. However, I agree that we should keep those fanatical ignoramuses out, which I assume means everyone but you and me.

    having israelis as one’s ally is like, well, like having israelis as one’s ally. it doesn’t get any worse than that.

    • Khalid Amayreh August 2, 2012 at 12:57 am #

      At least, Israelis were allies of the Shiites in Iraq, they both were fighting on the same front against Saddam.

      • who_me August 2, 2012 at 2:11 am #

        the great thing about hasbara is it is predictable.

  3. Khalid Amayreh August 1, 2012 at 11:26 pm #

    Iran had Israel and America as virtual, de facto allies in the war that deposed Saddam Hussein?

    Didn’t Saddam Hussein bomb Tel Aviv with more than 70 Scud missiles?

    Didn’t Iran embrace his enemies, al-Hakim and his friends?

    Didn’t the Shiites of Iraq, including Sistani, the highest Shiite religious authority in Iraq, issue religious edicts forbidding Iraqis from putting up any resisting to the American occupation armies even as American troops were murdering and torturing Iraq’s men and raping Iraq’s women?

    where is your moral consistency????????????

    • Barb Weir August 2, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

      I’m not sure to whom this is directed, but I agree that moral consistency is very important and we must work with humanitarian, democratically elected monarchs like the Hashemi of Jordan, the Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia and the Al-Thani of Qatar, as well as the anti-imperialist regimes in the U.S. and Turkey to remove the few remaining despotic and repressive regimes like Assad in Syria.

      • Roy Bard August 2, 2012 at 3:14 pm #

        Heh – this sounds like the start of a movement for real democracy! Finally we have something positive coming out of the endless comments!

        Is there a pay-pal account where we can donate to the cause?

    Israel is not the ultimate factor deciding good and evil and right and wrong in ths world.

    A nefarious regime doesn’t necessarily become good or charitable if it opposes or fights Israel.

    As an off-shoot of the Muaatzila, Shiits originally were a people of logic, now they are conspicuously very illogical and very irrational.

    • Barb Weir August 2, 2012 at 12:17 am #

      “Israel is not the ultimate factor deciding good and evil and right and wrong in ths world.”

      This will come as a shock to many Israelis and most U.S. elected officials, as well. Without Israel, how will they decide how to act?

    • adnan August 2, 2012 at 2:59 pm #

      Exactly, they have few obedient helpers like Saudia, Qatar, Kuwait (GCC), and their enforcers US and NATO.

      Yes, and Wahhabies are logical, honest, trustworthy …

    • Barb Weir August 2, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

      “Shiits originally were a people of logic, now they are conspicuously very illogical and very irrational.”

      This is true. I wonder if they are born without logic or if they lose it later in life. It is terrible to watch a person become a convert. The logic abandons their body and mind and lies there dead on the ground until some compassionate Sunni comes along and gives it a decent burial.

      Can you imagine an entire Shia population without a single logical person? In fact, a Shi’i, Dr. Lotfi Zadeh, was the inventor of fuzzy logic, a form of mathematics used in most software today and especially learning systems. Isn’t that just like a Shi’i to invent fuzzy logic; none of them can deal with real logic.

      Or am I being racist, hateful and disrespectful? I think the Qur’an forbids such things, right? Are we not all children of Allah and equal in His sight? But how is it possible to respect illogical and irrational Shi’i?

      Perhaps we are not all human. That would make it possible to despise Shia and still love and respect all humans. Perhaps we could include others in the non-human category, as well, such as Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindu, Shinto and many others. That would explain a lot and enable us to do things that would otherwise be prohibited.

      We humans have to stick together. Both of us.

    Do you think a an evil person becomes good if he opposes another evil man?

    Do you think Stalin was much better than Hitler?

    Do you think Assad is better than Sharon?

    As a Palestinian, the last thing I would want to besmirch my cause with is embracing a murders regime that murders his own people in order to stay in power?

    Unless, of course, I am willing to betray my conscience.

    • Barb Weir August 2, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

      [This repetition, with addendum, is not a mistake. I was tempted to repeat it several times with respect to several other comments.]

      I’m not sure to whom this is directed, but I agree that moral consistency is very important and we must work with humanitarian, democratically elected monarchs like the Hashemi of Jordan, the Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia and the Al-Thani of Qatar, as well as the anti-imperialist regimes in the U.S. and Turkey to remove the few remaining despotic and repressive regimes like the Assad in Syria.

      Is it OK for a murderous regime to murder its own people for other reasons than to stay in power? Or perhaps to murder people other than its own to stay in power? I wonder. What are the standards for murderous regimes these days?

      • Jonathon Blakeley August 2, 2012 at 10:23 pm #

        Go BarBara, It so easy to use the hiding behind a half a dozen questions routine.
        Fallacies galore

        Do you think a muslim person becomes good if he opposes another muslim?

        Is this what Islam is about, beucase my understanding is quite different.

        Do you think Red is a better colour than Purple?

        Do you think Abba is better than the Eagles?

  6. Khalid Amayreh August 2, 2012 at 12:59 am #

    Similarly, Palestinian refugees are being murdered by Shiite thugs in Syria and Baghdad.

  7. Roy Bard August 2, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    Aah so that nice Field Marshal Hussain Tantawi is Mursi’s choice for Minister of Defence…..

    and things are looking good for any critics he might have:

    Meanwhile, Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood has lodged a complaint with the country’s chief prosecutor against the information minister, the head of the news sector at official television and three journalists in the government-run newspaper Rose Al Youssef, accusing them, of publishing false news about the group.

    The Brotherhood’s lawyer Abdul Moneim Abdul Maqsud said the five “maliciously” reported last month that the group’s supreme guide wished that Ismail Haniya, the head of the Hamas government in Gaza, would be Egypt’s prime minister too.

    Mursi sues media over “false news and slander”

    • botafogo August 2, 2012 at 4:34 pm #

      i think it’s rather Mursi who is Tantawi’s choice for President

      and quoting from the link

      “Meanwhile, ministers of foreign affairs, finance, military production, scientific research, social insurance, the environment and antiquities in the pervious government of Kamal Al Ganzouri, have kept their posts in the new cabinet.”

      which means busyness as usual, MB dont rock the boat

    • Laura Stuart August 2, 2012 at 5:11 pm #

      It became clear a while ago that Egypt’s revolution is only half done. How sad, and so many died and injured. As long as the Military takes millions of dollars from America and people like Tantawi can nullify the elected officials on whim, nothing can change.

      • Barb Weir August 2, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

        Yes, you would think that the Americans would not be too happy about where their money is being spent, either. But we’re not as evolved as Eqyptians. Perhaps it’s our culture.

        • Laura Stuart August 2, 2012 at 6:03 pm #

          I am sure Barb that if Americans reflected where their money is spent and on what they would rebel. They need to know, and the billboard campaigns are a good start.

          • Barb Weir August 2, 2012 at 6:23 pm #

            Our culture is a reference to the Romney comment on Palestinians. I should have been more explicit.

  8. Blake August 2, 2012 at 6:58 pm #

    Libelous. These people have absolutely no shame in lying, being deceitful, defrauding and squatting on land that does not belong to them.

    • Paul Larudee August 2, 2012 at 8:39 pm #

      My guess would be that this started as a routine response from Mursi to Peres after Peres offered his Ramadan greetings, and someone in the Foreign Ministry put some foolish phrases in it and the phrases were not properly reviewed before being sent.

      Peres probably recognized the mistake and shared it with some colleagues for his own amusement, but it got leaked to the press. That’s why Yasser Ali can claim that Mursi did not send the message and that it is a fake. (Note that he did not say that it was fabricated by the Israelis.)

      This is a tempest in a teapot, but it makes for amusing reading, and is revealing in some ways. I think someone who used to be in the Egyptian Foreign Ministry is now looking for a new job.

  9. Blake August 2, 2012 at 8:50 pm #

    Mursi opposes Zionism but recognizes Israel? Is that possible? Zionism = Israel.

    • Laura Stuart August 2, 2012 at 9:21 pm #

      Yes I think it is – you can recognise that the State of Israel does in reality exist but also believe that it doesn’t have a “right to exist” and want to see its demise.

    • botafogo August 2, 2012 at 11:12 pm #

      like in most cases LS writes pure bull****
      because if you really “believe that it doesn’t have a “right to exist” and want to see its demise” then the first thing you do is sending their ambassador back home and turning their embassy over to the palestinians like the revolutionaries did in Tehran in 1979
      but of course one couldn’t expect the same kind of corageous action from the egyptian MB turncoats and that’s why zio-salafi shills here engage in verbal acrobatics to make black appear white and vice versa

      • who_me August 2, 2012 at 11:36 pm #

        “then the first thing you do is sending their ambassador back home and turning their embassy over to the palestinians like the revolutionaries did in Tehran in 1979″

        venezuela booted the israeli embassy. don’t know if they have a palestinian embassy, but what i’ve heard from the government there, is supportive of the palestinians. one of the few countries openly so.

        the venezuela government has also been strongly opposed to the zionazi attacks on israel opposing countries, such as on libya, syria and iran. you know, those israeli-american war crimes that laura stuart and khailid amayreh have been so strongly supporting and propagandising on this site).

        the venezuelan government is also leftist, and according to james petras, probably the most genuinely leftish government in practice on the planet. they neutralised most of the toxic israeli-american-eu fascist influence in their country and continually work to make the latin american region free of this debilitating, toxic sludge.

        the first step to independence is neutralising jp, in all its duplicitous forms. without jp, the old fashioned fascists are reduced to this:

    What I find odd about this letter is that it is TYPED and NOT SIGNED.
    It is against diplomatic protocol and a sign of disrespect. Letters from one head of state to another obey strict rules of protocol, depending on the relationship:

    1. Cordial (outwardly at least) and respectful relationship (e.g., the US to Russia): computer stock paper, typed but signed by hand (NOT signature stamp)
    2. Close relationship (e.g., the US to the UK): velum paper, typed, plus a couple of lines added by hand in a footnote (“Give my best to [wife] and the kids,” or “Looking forward to seeing you at the Bilderberg shindig in May.”)
    3. Close….as one (e.g., US to Israel): Preprinted stock, one line in Hebrew: “Just name it!”
    Occasional hand-written footnotes (“I hope you won’t take Romney to that garden where you took me”). Photographs of the presidential family blowing kisses, Obama with a kippa on.
    No, Mursi’s letter is totally outside the protocol. Unless it was meant as an insult.

    • Blake August 2, 2012 at 9:42 pm #

      Exactly and let’s face it zionism is not exactly an honesty is best policy kind of ideology. Dishonesty is their policy.

    The thuggish regime in Syria this evening slaughtered 17 Palestinians and injured 66 in the Yarmuk refugee camp near Damascus.

    The total number of Palestinians murdered and massacred by the regime eversince the bginning of the revolution has reached hundreds. The regime routinely invokes the Palestinian Cause to justify the ongoing genocide being carried out against the country’s Sunni majority.

    Posters: Attention!

    Remember that Iranian and Hezbullah agents on this site have been arguing that the Assad regime is slaughtering its own peopkle and destroying its own cities for the sake of Palestine.

    Unfortunately, some unsuspecting readers and posters may have been swayed and deceived by these professional liars.

    Now, you can see who has been lying.

      “The thuggish regime in Syria this evening slaughtered 17 Palestinians and injured 66 in the Yarmuk refugee camp near Damascus.”

      here is how it is being reported on Now Lebanon:

      The battles in the capital were focused in the southern districts of Tadamun, Kazaaz and the Palestinian refugee camp Yarmuk, and were sparked when rebels firing rocket-propelled grenades at military checkpoints, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

      The Syrian Observatory, an opposition propaganda outfit is reporting that the battles were started by rebel attacks on the regime.

      The majority of people who attack the military expect the military to react, do they not?

    When i was living up North I would often throw wild parties. Quite often I would be having a groovy time with all my friends and then the reverie and bon amis would be shattered by some gate crasher who somehow got in becuase of our lax security and liberal attitudes.

    Within a short time the gate crasher would inevitably start throwing up and abusing people generally. People would drop hints and make off hand statements in the hope that the gate crasher would see that he had out stayed his welcome.

    More often than not the gatecrasher was so absorbed in their little world that would not notice the lack of positive feedback that came from their attemtped conversations.

    Well to call them conservations is a bit strong.
    One is talked at, it matters little what one says becuase their conclusion if already drawn like their closed mind.

    I just learned from Syrian Dunia TV, that Syria sent a congratulation leter to Mursi, he replied harshly rejecting the congratulation, saying that he would accept a such congratulation from sectarian Nato Army.

    Today, he got a slap on his fat ass from Tantawi. After the attack on Egypt’s gaurds gaurding the zionist entity (I pet Israel stand behind the attack ) Tantawi closed rafah crossing until further notice, “THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE IS GAINING” someone preyed
