Um, those allies would include those of us in the United States.
And we give them money. (Or, more accurately, we borrow money from the Chinese and then pass it on to the Egyptians.)
Especially galling is when the cleric prays, “Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder.” After a Jewish diaspora of nearly two millenia that culminated in the Holocaust, how could any decent and educated man pray for this? And to see President Morsi, on his knees, brow furrowed, concentrating and earnestly wishing this fate upon the Jews, is stomach churning.
UPDATE: The original video has been taken down from YouTube, and I can’t locate a substitute, but here’s a link to the Washington Post reporting on the incident, and a quote from the Post’s article:
In one of the prayers, the cleric asked God to “destroy the Jews and their supporters and disperse them, rend them asunder.” Morsi is then seen continuing to say Amen. The prayers were aired on state TV and caught on video by MEMRI, a pro-Israel media monitoring group.
And here’s the public photo (weirdly released by the Egyptian government) of Morsi praying in the mosque where the antisemitic prayer occurred:
