It’s probably a safe bet that Egyptian media won’t be portraying Barack Obama as “god of all things” anytime soon. According to a post at PJ Media, one Egyptian outlet has gone so far as to portray Obama as the devil.
Raymond Ibrahim, author of “Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians,” said the Egyptian paper Al Wafd published a grotesque picture portraying Obama as Satan, and said it represents the growing hatred many people in the region have for the president, thanks, he said, to Obama’s staunch and unwavering support for Islamists and jihadis, “whether in Nigeria, Libya, Egypt, or Syria — even as they terrorize, murder, rape, and burn down Christian churches, that is, even as they engage in diabolical activities.”
According to Ibrahim, Al Wafd is a popular outlet widely read in Egypt.
The photo has been making the rounds on the Internet, and has been mentioned by a number of blogs. The so-called “mainstream media,” however, has not covered the photo as of this writing.
But we have to wonder: Will Chris Matthews call Al Wafd racist?
Inquiring minds really want to know.
