The United States allied with political Islamists against communism and the Soviet Union. Soon, this trained ally was turned into an armed monster in Afghanistan. This monster turned against America and many Arab and Islamic countries that previously supported him with money and weapons. A wave of terrorism started in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and African countries in the nineties against American targets, till it reached its peak on September 9, 2001.
The Egyptian government has finally moved to implement the authorization of the people to eliminate the terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood. However, security forces moved wisely to disperse Rabaa El Adaweya and Nahda sit-ins. This was a strong message to the fanatics says: the people are fed up with your threats.
What is happening in the land of Egypt these days is just a duplicate of what is happening in the Syrian territory and what happened in the lands of Libya, Algeria, and Tunisia and is still happening.
Take a good look on this people in the picture below; Do you see Egyptians?
Who are those and from where they come?
Who allowed them inside Egypt?
Why any of those guys who obviously are not Egyptians would be upset or asking the return of the ousted Morsy -whom I never acknowledged as president-!
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna, along with six workers of the Suez Canal Company. Al-Banna was a schoolteacher, to promote implementing of traditional Islamic sharia law and a social renewal based on an Islamic ethos of altruism
The situation in Egypt as of now is quite dire, and furthermore, there is a huge rift amongst Canadian Egyptians as well. There is a rift between Pro-Morsi supporters and an unidentifiable opposition.
To the average Joe, even “Western Media” the Army is seen as a coup, where we are back to square one as a dictatorship. The opposing members are seen as “Pro-coup” which is completely wrong. Here’s the facts you need to know in order to understand the reality of the situation, and how wrong Western Media is portraying the whole ordeal.
Couple of years ago, I was attending a meeting in the U.S. Congress in Washington. I needed to use the bathroom, but I didn't know how to get there. Then, a nice gentleman guided me to the bathroom. I thought I know him, and I really was. He was the famous American Senator Lindsey Graham.
Throughout history, there has been always a conflict between progress and backwardness. In Egypt, leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood are only seeking backwardness. They want Egypt to live in the Middle Ages when the apostates were killed, the hands of thieves were cut off and adulterous were stoned.
We must acknowledge that we have a serious sectarian problem that turns many common problems between two citizens of different religions into a religious holy war! Those who do not recognize this are either ignorant or evil people seeking some political interests.
Each day, we hear about the achievements of protestors at Rabaa El Adaweya sit-in. They built bathrooms in the streets as well as a theater for entertainment. Furthermore, they built fortifications in order to defend their holy land and prevent “the enemies” from reaching their camps. Those protestors are willing to defend their sit-in and to sacrifice even the minors they kidnapped from orphans’ shelters and women who seek martyrdom in order to please God as they were told in that sit-ins.
Almost a month ahead on 9/11/2013 it will be the 12th. memorial of the WTC attack! WTC short for World Trade Centre, as we all remember four commercial passenger aircraft were used as directed bombs towards the twine towers of WTC and other targets causing thousands of deaths huge fires lead to the collapse of the WTC!
There is no doubt that we now live in big chaos. Islamic groups are burning the churches, killing the innocent people, destroying shops, and swearing to do more and continue to burn all of Egypt just because of Morsi.
Let's think in the following way: suppose that the 3 of July was a coup, does that mean the whole country deserves to be burned? Because of Dr. Morsi and the Chair of Presidency? Does that mean more than 20 churches deserve to be burned and Copts murdered for no reason?
Allow me Lieutenant General to express my opinion on a sensitive issue related to Egypt’s future.
It was an initiative from the people that launched the 25 January revolution, just like the revolution in 1919, and all of us are proud of this. We toppled an unjust regime under which people had suffered from need, corruption, and oppression.
Upon returning from a two-week trip abroad, the level of hatred towards the Muslim Brotherhood that I found in every person I spoke to is unprecedented and shocking. From the moment I boarded the plane in New York until I left the airport in Cairo there was a constant theme to every small talk conversation I engaged in, from the air stewardess to the customs official: a complete loss of patience and lack of any kind of compassion towards the Brotherhood and their supporters. The continued marches, the sieges of neighbourhoods and the blockage of roads on daily basis during Ramadan, a month during which any street activity during is unacceptable to the general population, has unleashed the inner fascist in many Cairenes.
Egypt has rarely been a happy hunting ground for urban planners, and right now Cairo is a frightening beast, each day growing larger, louder, dirtier and more unstable. It’s a city bursting at the seams; having developed wildly beyond its infrastructure thresholds, its basic foundations are creaking under immense strain.
It appears that the second transitional phase – which began after 30 June – is already beginning to stumble, threatening to intensify civil strife in Egypt and push the nation to the edge of a destructive civil war.
Time come and have to write again my weekly article and the view today is really scary and dark so let us say I have to blow the warning bells after a full month of the wonderful uprising of the Egyptian ego the love of Egypt when the absolute majority of Egyptians stood up saying we love Egypt! The 30th. June 2013 was the memorable blessed day reminding us all that God really blessed Egypt with its people!
As pressure mounts in Egypt, and protests are not ceasing, we have to take a closer look at the role this political divide is playing in the lives of the Copts living through this.
As we know, 10% of the population is Christian, which means we are gravely outnumbered. Now this would be all fine if we weren’t the first to be targeted when hardships plague the country. Threats of burning churches, setting fire to people, and suicide bombing for maximum destruction are all examples of what Pro-Morsi protestors are preaching.
Arab people feel proud that the great Arab country of Egypt is now having a great leader who is its Defence Minister Abdul Fatah al-Sisi. This man is the new Nasser of Egypt who takes his steps very carefully.
People in Alexandria fought a fierce battle against the terrorist group of the Muslim Brotherhood on Friday, 5 July 2013. This battle lasted from 3:00 PM to 1:00 AM, till the Brotherhood were completely defeated and flew the neighborhood of Sidi Gaber. However, this battle showed a big difference between the Egyptians and the Muslim Brotherhood concerning how both deal with women.
I do not talk usually about a special treatment or affirmative action for the Copts. Yet, they suffer now from threats, intimidation and even killing. Here, we should stop to think. The Islamists have decided to take revenge of the Copts; however, they have done nothing.
After the Revolution on the 25th of January, all Egyptians accused Mubarak’s regime for the persecution of the Copts, especially of Al-Quddisen Church in Alexandria. We figured out, however, that during the Revolution, there were many sectarian events going on. A church was destroyed by Muslims, and another one burned by Muslims too. We then figured out that the only possible reason was the ex-regime, and also the culture of hatred that exists in this community.
