Adolf Hitler published his two-volume Mein Kampf (“My Struggle”) in 1925-26.  It was both his autobiography and political ideology, and Hitler proclaimed his hatred of both Communism and Judaism, argued that Germany needed to expand eastward into Czechoslovakia and Poland, and stated that the future of Germany lay in the acquisition of land in the East at the expense of the Soviet Union.  He further intimated that he had a master plan for the extermination of Jews.  When he became Chancellor in 1933, he began to implement governmental policies that he had clearly articulated in his book, and did not seek to “move to the center” after he became Chancellor of Germany.  In fact, Winston Churchill, writing in Volume I of The Second World War, observed that Mein Kampf “was the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message.”  Indeed it was.  The result was the decimation of Europe, and the deaths of tens of millions of persons, including a number in my family.

A video recently released by the Middle East Research Institute (“MEMRI”) features Egypt’s President Morsi saying that Arabs and Moslems do not benefit from interacting with the descendants of apes and pigs in Israel, and further called Americans “enemies” and calls for a boycott of United States goods.  Among the other pearls of his wisdom are the following:

This [Palestinian] Authority was created by the Zionist and American enemies for the sole purpose of opposing the will of the Palestinian people and its interests.

As to the efficacy of negotiating with Israel, President Morsi opined as follows:

Either [you accept] the Zionists and everything they want, or else it is war. This is what these occupiers of the land of Palestine know – these blood-suckers, who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.

And President Morsi, speaking in the style of Mein Kampf, observed:

We should employ all forms of resistance against them. There should be military resistance within the land of Palestine against those criminal Zionists, who attack Palestine and the Palestinians.  There should also be political resistance and economic resistance through a boycott, as well as by supporting the resistance fighters.  This should be the practice of the Muslims and the Arabs outside Palestine.  They should support the resistance fighters and besiege the Zionist wherever they are.  None of the Arab or Muslim peoples and regimes should have dealings with them.  Pressure should be exerted upon them.  They must not be given any opportunity, and must not stand on any Arab or Islamic land. They must be driven out of our countries.

The Egypt of President Morsi is the recipient of billions of dollars annually of United States foreign aid, and later this month, the Obama “Administration” is planning to donate F-16 fighter jets and 200 new Abrams tanks to Egypt.  (No, I am not making this up!)  Of course, an Egyptian Sharia dictatorship on Israel’s border, armed with American weapons, could cause mischief to Israel and the United States, and could be used against the Egyptian people should President Morsi face a Syria-style revolution.  It is only President Obama who can now rescind the delivery of fighter jets and tanks to Egypt.  Interestingly, Fox News reported that a spokesperson at the U.S. Department of State declined to say whether the deal was being reviewed, but said the Obama “Administration” seeks to “maintain a strategic partnership with Egypt that enhances the security and peace of the region.”  With that, I suspect that President Morsi will get his free jets and tanks thanks to those of you who pay taxes.  If you are as uncomfortable about this as I am, please let President Obama know your views.  The main number to the White House is 1.202.456.1414.  As the President continues his vacation in Hawaii with his family, I would suggest that you contact the President’s Chief of Staff, Jacob Joseph “Jack” Lew.  I am sure he would be happy to leave a message from you for the President.  More importantly, as we are commanded in Psalm 122:6, please pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
