I watched the entire 1:30 minute speech by Sisi yesterday. It was quite a nervous performance. He was a tyrant in distress. He avoided saying a good word about Saudi regime, perhaps knowing about the public anger. He also of course avoided mentioning the Israeli occupation state. He went out of his way to shift the blame to Saudi regime: he said that they have been asking for them. He then bluntly asked that people stop talking about it altogether. You know that the tyrant is on his way down in the Arab world when he appears too defensive.
