Invented by Egypt? Tom and Jerry

Egypt invented everything...including the cartoon duo of Tom and Jerry! That’s according to Egyptian urologist and Egyptologist Wassim Al-Sissy.

According to Al-Sissy, Egypt is also behind the principles of Communism, which he claimed Karl Marx copied. As well, he claimed it was not the forefathers of the Jewish people who built the pyramids, but the Egyptians.

The interview with Al-Sissy was broadcast on the Egyptian Al-Kahera Wal-Nas TV on April 21. It was translated and posted by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

“The pyramids were built in 2800 BCE, whereas Abraham lived in 1700 BCE – he lived 1,000 years after the building of the pyramids. Even if we assume that they were around when the pyramids were built, there is a difference between shepherds, who know nothing about engineering, or about erecting such monumental structures, and who couldn't do much more than carry bricks, perhaps, and between the brilliant minds who could build such structures,” claimed Al-Sissy.

“Anyone who knows this but still attacks [Egyptian] civilization must be working for global Zionism,” he declared.

He further claimed that Tom and Jerry were created by the ancient Egyptians and were later copied

He then added, “I consider everything to have been planned here. Even the principles of Communism – it turns out that they were written by Ipuwer, the historian from the First Intermediate Period. He wrote that labor belongs to the laborers, that the land belongs to those who till it, and that the heavens do not rule the land, because there is no god. This is from the First Intermediate Period, after the Sixth Dynasty.”

“It turns out that the text, written by Ipuwer, the ancient Egyptian historian, was kept at a museum in Leiden, and from there, Karl Marx, Trotsky, and all those people too the slogans of Communism. They adopted them from the Egyptian Communist period, following the Sixth Dynasty. So even the principles of Communism you took from us?!” claimed Al-Sissy.

MEMRI often posts videos in which Arab television network are shown to make outrageous claims.

Just last week it posted a report from an Egyptian television channel which cited an episode of “The Simpsons” as proof that the United States had conspired to cause the Arab Spring revolutions.

Another video featured a journalist who claimed that Egypt’s leading presidential candidate, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is Jewish and grew up next to Israel’s former Chief of Staff and Defense Minister, Moshe Dayan.

In another case, a lawyer who spoke on Egyptian television claimed that Zionists and racists use the world media, including cartoons featuring Bugs Bunny, to perpetuate anti-Islamic notions.
