US says Egypt needs to do more on religious tolerance    Reuters
1. ok ok..
So, the guy entertained few Darwinian fantasies in his youth ( 2010..long long ago!) - that involved apes, pigs and.. vampires or something, what's the big deal? We all had our looney days!
Yosef ,   Egypt   (01.18.13)
2. About apes and Morsi.
Morsi should not talk about apes, because he looks like a big gorilla, although the gorillas has more brain.

3. egyptians elected morsi
On his beliefs and he is speaking what the people of egypt believe, the us should remember that this is not mubarak anymore and they dont have a right to tell morsi what to say and what not to say. Liberman is the most racist politician alive but no one dares say anything to the russian mafia..

4. Morsi
WHAT IS SAD IS THE UNITED STATES FALLS FOR THE RADICALS HOOK LINE AND SINKER... THIS MORSI IS A TERRORIST ALONG WITH THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND WE TAX PAYERS SIT BY AND WATCH OBAMA GIVE EGYPT 1.2 BILLION DOLLARS THREE MONTHS AGO BELIEVE ME THIS IS NOT NEW TO OBAMA OR HIS DEMOCRATIC PARTY SAME PARTY WHO WANTED TO TAKE JERUSALEM AS ISRAEL CAPITAL OFF THE PLATFORM AT THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION. OBAMA PUT UP SENATOR KERRY FOR STATE DEPARTMENT AND HAGEL DEFENSE GET THE PICTURE YET IT'S NOT TO DIFFICULT TO FIGURE OUT THIS IS THE SAME PRESIDENT WHO STABBED MUBRAAK IN THE BACK AFTER AMERICAS FRIENDSHIP FOR 30 YRS WITH FRIENDS LIKE THIS WHO NEEDS ENEMIES UNDERSTAND ISRAEL BH FOR CONGRESS WHO IS TRULY ISRAEL'S FRIEND CERTAINLY NOT THIS PRESIDENT AM ISRAEL CHAI

5. An obvious snap is waiting to happen
The biggest question is how the timing will effect each side. Once Egypt goves up U.S. aid all of the Muslim Arab countries will fall behind it, there will be some reconciliation among many groups and it will even accelerate Iran moving toward normality with sunnis.

6. Religious freedom? Ask the Copts!
Morsi is a Brotherhood dirtbag. He has no problem spouting the company line about Israel and Jews- after all, he believes what he reads in the quran, that 'holy' book which reads like a 'how-to' manual for Hell's Angels. Egypt is a lost cause- the Brotherhood will never give up power. It will be to Israel's great misfortune if any new weapons are delivered to these drunk-with-power hardline psychopaths. That the USA is even considering delivering new weapons to these fanatics proves that the State dept is more in Muslim ass-kissing mode than promoting peace in the mideast mode. No weapons to Morsi. Any senator or congressman that agrees to this fiasco will lose in the next election. We remember.

7. ACTION & DEEDS, NOT TAQIYAH.

8. somebody goofed!
somebody at the state department sure didn't do their homework - morsi was not some unknown nobody that suddenly popped up out of the woodwork. and yet, despite his hate-speech and incitement, the american administration went out of their way to force mubarak out, and help elect morsi. (by demanding elections at the earliest possible time, they favoured the moslem brotherhood, the only party that was prepared.) and now they can't even get him to repudiate his trash, even if it costs egypt a few billion dollars. as the new york times, the mouthpiece of the white house, put it, he can't be seen to be backtracking on the anti-israeli rhetoric in front of his own people. it's a failure of intelligence (or should we say "wisdom"), but i will bet nobody will lose their job over it, because the obama administration has no interest in learning from its mistakes.

9. Taken out of context ?
Let Egypt explain under which context Mursis words would be acceptable!
Jacob ,   Munich   (01.18.13)
10. Morsi
Islamic Republic & Makmoud Ahmadi Nejad instead of sending a monkey into space for their first space venture, they should send Mr Morsi and Muslim Brotherhood supporters and the Ayatollahs altogether to Mars.
Son Of Cyrus   (01.18.13)
11. America's Hubris
Believing the $ deified, the USA makes ridiculous assumptions, purely cerebal that the world obeys every one of its desires. They just have to say a few words! Too late, will they learn that they really can't turn water into wine.
Tambour ,   Eilat   (01.18.13)
12. Unfortunately, this is what Morsi and the MB believe
Morsi, and the majority of Egyptians, are anti-Semitic to the core. So of what importance is a retraction or clarification (or a claim the words were "taken out of context") when such sentiments are so closely held? I suspect Obama just wants some weasel words out of Egypt so he can deliver those tanks and fighter jets with a clear conscience.
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (01.18.13)
13. "holy worrior" - US MUST stop giving money to Egypt
Today Egypt is the enemy of Israel, of the USA and the whole WEST. I think that muslims should live in closed in their world, ruled by coran and sharia, completly separated by the rest of the world. We don't want your hell !

14. What? Took three years?
What part took so long to understand?
Raoul ,   Herzliya Israel   (01.18.13)
15. Evolution?
Do muslims believe in Evolution? Because I mean we probably are decendants of apes, though I wish we had kept the oposable toes, that would have been nice. And if we jews are decendants of Apes, what is he?
Jacob E ,   Holon, Israel   (01.18.13)
16. needs to be tolerant
US says "Egypt needs to do more one religious tolerance" Yesterday, Egypt jailed a woman and her children for 15 years for the crime of being Christian. Thank you Obama.
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (01.18.13)
17. Egypt needs to do more on religion
Obama knows very well that the Muslims world will never be tolerance to Jews. When Morsi have asked the Egyptian Jews to return home to Egypt, did President Obama heared that the local Muslims have declared if Jews returns back to Egypt, they will be killed. Tolerance not with Muslims.

18. US says Egypt needs to do more
if US thinks that egypt is going to do more on religious tolerance they must be dreaming they should just see how other faiths going down in arab countries the reason is it is how they are taught from very young age

19. Double speak
Arab leaders have a history of saying one thing in Arabic and another to the American media. Arafat was a martyr for peace to the West, while speaking of driving the Jews into the Sea when speaking in Arabic. Doesn't the Koran suggest Jews and Christians descend from pigs and monkeys?
