Egyptian political commentator Nabih Al-Wahsh accused Israel of downing EgyptAir Flight 804, and called for Egyptians and Arabs to kill any Israeli they come across and to mutilate his body. Al-Wahsh, a lawyer, filed a lawsuit with Egyptian courts four years ago in an attempt to abolish the Camp David Accords. Al-Asseema TV presenter tried to stop Al-Wahsh from inciting to violence, but to no avail, as Al-Wahsh called for the establishment of “death squads” that would hunt down Israelis all over the world. The show aired on May 20.
Nabih Al-Wahsh: "All the evidence indicates that the filthy Zionist entity is behind the (EgyptAir) plane crash, and time will prove me right.
"The filthy and despicable Zionist entity is behind this, and I have presented the evidence."
Host: "Did they plant a bomb?"
Nabih Al-Wahsh: "No. They used a missile."
Nabih Al-Wahsh: "Sir, we do not want to bury our heads in the sand again. From here, I call upon any Egyptian or Arab man who comes across an Israeli person to kill him and mutilate his body..."
Host: "No, no, no..."
Nabih Al-Wahsh: "I take full responsibility for saying this..."
Host: "You are responsible but still, you must not call for violence."
Nabih Al-Wahsh: "There is no such thing as 'not calling for violence.' We pay by the same token: Violence for violence and filth for filth. The despicable Zionist entity does not abide by norms or agreements. It exported AIDS into Egypt, as well as aphrodisiac bubble gum, and all kinds of catastrophes. I have filed a lawsuit, which has been in courts for four years now, to modify or abolish the shameful Camp David Accords. We have abided by it, due to our adherence to a monotheistic religion, and in keeping with our customs, but the despicable entity has not abided by it, so I call on anyone who comes across... No Israeli must come here. In Sharam Al-Sheikh, in Hurghada..."
Host: "No, no, no..."
Nabih Al-Wahsh: "Sir, we must stop pampering them and patting them on the back..."
Host: "We do not do this, but we must not call for violence. That's it."
Nabih Al-Wahsh: "I call to form death squads that will hunt down any Israeli, anywhere in the world. We are fed up! The parliament must establish a commission of inquiry. The people have had it. The people are fed up. Well, most of them are. The plane crash overshadowed all the catastrophes; 90% of the Egyptian people are sure that Israel is behind it. Let me just say this: Today, Netanyahu accepted the resignation of the Minister of Defense, because the latter protested the downing of the plane.
"We must get rid of the cancerous Zionist entity."
Iranian media is also playing up the Egyptian crackpot theories.
Al-Mesri al-Youm newspaper wrote that in its report of the plane's crash, Greece hasn’t mentioned Israeli warplanes' wargames in the Southern parts of Crete Island which was revealed earlier this month by Tel Aviv, adding that the maneuvers had started one night before the Egyptian plane's crash.I found one Egyptian report that said this.
It added that the exercises are staged with the goal of training the Israeli air force pilots using Greece's airspace which is adjacent to Egypt and Libya.
According to the report, Israel started the maneuvers on May 18 and they will last until next January.
