Uproar and commotion has erupted in Egypt over revelations that President Morsi has sent a communiqué confirming Egypt's commitment to peaceful ties with the Jewish state. In the letter sent to Shimon Peres, President of the Jewish State, Morsi states: "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 that Israeli people."
Despite vociferous denials by Morsis's representatives, the letter appears to be genuine. The English newspaper The Guardian reported that Peres's office said the president's aides received the official communiqué on July 31st 2012 from the Egyptian ambassador to the Jewish state, both by registered mail and by fax from the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv. Furthermore, the paper stated that the fax number which appeared on the faxed letter was registered to the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv.
The appearance of the letter is not an extraordinary occurrence; rather it is a manifestation of Morsi's pledge to respect Egypt's international agreements, which includes the peace accords with Israel. The presence of the Egyptian embassy in the heartland of the Jewish state underscores Morsi's intention to have harmonious relations with the Jews.
The timing of the letter comes hot on the heels of visits to Cairo by Palestinian leaders— President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas's political chief Khaled Meshal. After his meeting with Morsi, Abbas told reporters: "the doors of the political process with Israel are shut." Notwithstanding the close ties between Morsi's brotherhood and Hamas, no new offers were made to Meshal to ease the miserable plight of Palestinians in Gaza. In fact Morsi reaffirmed that he would not pick sides between the divided Palestinian leadership. He said, "We have said before that we stand at equal distance from all Palestinian factions. We support and aid them and are always happy to help in reconciliation."
These statements clearly point towards the fact the Morsi under Tantawi's auspices has been tasked by America to reconcile difference between the Palestinian leadership and kick start the Middle East peace process, which is designed to safeguard the security of the Jewish state. So both Morsi and Tantawi are working together and picking up pieces left behind during Mubarak's ouster to unify the Palestinian factions and re-launch the peace process. Speaking on the collaboration between Morsi and Tantawi for common goals, US Defense Secretary Panetta said,"It's my view that President Morsi and Field Marshal Tantawi have a very good working relationship and are working together for the same ends." In return America is offering Tantawi and Morsi $1.3 billion in aid to commit high treason against the ummah and continue working with America and the Jewish state.
Do not Morsi and Tantawi heed the words of Allah that explicitly warn about taking allies that are sworn enemies of the Muslim ummah? Allah says:
وَلَنْ تَرْضَىٰ عَنْكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلَا النَّصَارَىٰ حَتَّىٰ تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ ۗ قُلْ إِنَّ هُدَى اللَّهِ هُوَ الْهُدَىٰ
"The Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you until you follow their religion. Say, 'Allah's guidance is the true guidance.'" [Al-Baqara, 2:120]
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَىٰ أَوْلِيَاءَ ۘ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ ۚ وَمَنْ يَتَوَلَّهُمْ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ
"You who have iman! do not take the Jews and Christians as your friends; they are the friends of one another. Any of you who takes them as friends is one of them. Allah does not guide wrongdoing people." [Al-Maida, 5:51]
The Muslims of Egypt must stand firm against the plans of the disbelieving American state to provide security and peace to the Jewish state. They must reject every proposal taken by Morsi and Tantawi that either strengthens America's hegemony over them or places Egypt's resources in the defense of the Jewish state.
The Muslims of Egypt must ensure that the resources of the country are placed in the defense of Islam and the Muslim ummah only. And that every last morsel of these resources is used in the liberation of Palestine! This can only be achieved by the Muslims of Egypt uniting with their brothers in the armed forces to re-establish the Khilafah state and permanently lift the state of siege and fear perpetrated by the Jewish state against the Palestinian people.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ
"You who have iman! respond to Allah and to the Messenger when He calls you to what will bring you to life!" [Al-Anfaal, 8:24]
