#1 Morsi failed to support the Sunni who are being oppressed in Iran (and to some extent Iraq) while supporting the Sunni in Syria who are being oppressed by the Alawites. Of course, he doesn't mention the Shiite who are being oppressed by Sunni in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Indonesia, Etc.

#2 failed to support is not the same as opposed, right?

True. There was a lot of what we would call 'nuance' or 'careful ambiguity' in Morsi's comments.
I don't think this matters that much.

#4 Right on, I wasn't too familiar with Morsi, just getting to know about him.

#6 See TOPIX > MURSI: IRAN IS EGYPT'S STRATEGIC ALLY, NOT RIVAL. Mursi/Morsi attempting to downplay the damage vee new BFF Iran.
IMO Iran will placate it also given how its MilPol surrounding main Sunni rival KSA, vee Hezbollah + IRGC elements.
Nothing like controversy to start off a new Leader's national or foreign policy, espec agz a state that is likely to ultimately end up being a de facto future rival, among others.
Again, GWOT + OWG-NWO = as much an INTER-MUSLIM/ISLAMIC COMPETITION FOR POWER [dominance] + INFLUENCE AS ANYTHING ELSE, ESPEC AS PER DESIRED FUTURE OWG "CALIPHATE" + "UMMAH". The KSA's long-standing position os Defender of the Faith + Islamic Holy Places is being challenged by several historical Centres of Thought in which Shia Iran is but one.
FYI Iran announced it wants to set a troika of several nations, including Venezuela, to solve the Syria crisis.
