Temple Institute: Morsi's Face in Video Not Intentional


A Temple Institute video released 6 days ago with almost 200,000 views has drawn the attention of several Arabic language news outlets. The 90-second video shows two children building a sand castle on a beach. A newspaper that appears in the video is open to a page showing the face of President Mohamed Morsi of Egypt.

The Temple Institute responded by stating that neither President Morsi nor Egypt is part of the storyline of the video and it was non-intentional that an article about him happened to be on that particular page of the newspaper. The video was released for the Jewish commemoration of Tisha B'av which will occur this year on Sunday. A full Arutz Sheva article about it can be seen by clicking here.
