The former Egyptian president who had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, died Monday in court after his trial over espionage charges.
“[Former President Mohamed] Morsi was affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is an outlawed group in Egypt,” according to Egypt Today. “He became president in 2012, and was ousted over mass protests on July 3, 2013. Since then, he was being prosecuted in custody as he was facing several charges, including espionage, killing protesters, prison escape, and judiciary insult.”
In 2015, Morsi was sentenced to death for a jailbreak plot, but that sentence was overturned a year later, and he was given three years in prison for “judiciary insult.” The same year, he was sentenced to life in prison on espionage charges, with the court claiming that he was spying on behalf of Qatar.
Initial reports said that Morsi, who was granted a chance to speak to the judge in his trial, spoke for 25 minutes before fainting. He reportedly had a heart attack, and was transported to a local hospital, where he died. He was 67.
From 2000 to 2005, Morsi served on the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau.
“Morsi was chosen as the Muslim Brotherhood’s presidential candidate in April 2012 after the movement’s deputy general guide,” according to BBC.

Chinese Communist Party Media is Rooting for Black Lives Matter
According to a piece by Paul Joseph Watson at Summit News, the Chinese state media outlet Xinhua is rooting for leftist insurrectionist group Black Lives Matter.
The outlet went so far as to draw a cartoon with police officers equipped with pitchforks and torches pursuing a black man.
“Statistics show, time and again, that some are disproportionately prejudiced against in the U.S. #FightRacism,” the official Xinhua News account Tweeted.

The image depicts three white police officers and a dog chasing a black male. While in pursuit, the officers exclaimed, “hunt that blackie!
The Chinese Communist Party has taken advantage of the BLM movement to try to gain international clout and stir up unrest within the U.S. The CCP wants nothing more than a weakened U.S. that is tearing itself apart. From there, it can position itself as a more “stable” alternative to the U.S. and continue projecting its soft power.
Similarly, by accepting the American Left’s narrative on police brutality, the CCP can draw attention away from its brutal human rights track record against ethnic minorities such as the Uyghurs.
Several Twitter users caught on to this and pointed out the irony in the CCP’s attacks against the U.S.
“So how are the Uighurs doing up in Xinjiang?” inquired one user.
Another user called attention to how China takes down black people from promotional material for Hollywood movies.

China has a very strong ethnocentric ethos and is not very friendly towards minority outgroups. After all, China views itself as “Zhong Guo” (the Middle Kingdom).
Watson pointed to a Spectator article detailing how Chinese people with a darker complexion receive harsh treatment. Some children get called “monkeys” if their complexion is perceived to be too dark.
In her Spectator piece, Carola Binney observed that racism in China is “so commonplace it can seem almost cheerful” and she noted that racism is a “standard undercurrent of public debate.”
All in all, China has no business lecturing the U.S. about racism.
Nevertheless, the U.S. should get its domestic house in order and tighten its migration and trade policies with China.
China will seek to exploit any vulnerabilities the U.S. has, and policymakers should do everything possible to shore up any weakness the U.S. has and keep China at bay.
