Turbulence, violence in the Middle East
Egyptians are hostage to Muslims Brotherhood demands.
Tens of thousands of MB supporters swarmed into Cairo’s Tahrir Square for a Brotherhood-led protest against attempts by the armed forces to consolidate power.
Their claims are:
1. Their protest is peacful
The Truth is:
A. Hairat el-Shater, the leading strategist of the Muslim Brotherhood, offered a stark warning last week as he prepared for this weekend’s final round of the presidential election: Egypt can make its transition to a new order the easy way if Morsi, the Muslims Brotherhood candidate, win or the hard way meaning using force and bloodshed in the street if Shaifek win.
B. Hundreds of Grad missiles, with ranges of 60-70 miles, shorter range rockets, guns and ammunition from Libya are already thought to have arrived to MB in Egypt.
SCAF considered this a threat to Egypt stability and responded with constitutional declaration allowing the Army to protect major institutes around the country.
2. MB will honor peace treaty with Israel
The truth is:
A. MB ideology has spawned some of the most violent terrorist organizations in the world including Al Qaeda and Hamas.
B. Egyptian Cleric Safwat Higazi Launches MB Candidate Muhammad Mursi's Campaign: Mursi Will Restore the "United States of the Arabs" with Jerusalem as Its Capital.
C. The Islamist parties (Muslims Brotherhood “MB” and Salafies) that lead the dislove Egyptian Parliament considered El Mofty’s visit to Jerusalem a crime required his immediate resignation and he should be indicted, brought to justice and be charged with Acts of Treason before the highest Court. This position is contrary to their initial pledge to honor the peace deal with Israel right after the revolution.
D. They stated that they will put the Camp David accords and any other agreement Egypt has signed to a national referendum.
SCAF considered this a threat to Egypt national security and responded with constitutional declaration to prohibit war without prior SCAF’s authorization.
Their Demands are
1. Return of a parliament who for lack of better words was close to taliban in afghanistan to which the court ruled unconsitutional and dislove it because there was plenty of evidence of violation to electoral laws citing a misapplication of rules for independent candidates and documented widespread irregularities
The Truth is the Islamist parties (Muslims Brotherhood “MB” and Salafies) that lead the disolved Egyptian Parliament approved a law called "intercourse Farewell," which gives the husband the right to sleep with his wife during the first 6 hours of her death) not to mention laws allowing femal genital Mutilation and marring young girls aged 12)
2. MB demanding their candiate, Morsi, to be a president
The Truth is that MB infilterated the national printing organization for election ballot and marked more than a million ballot voting for MB candidate before these ballots reach the voting station polls. In upper Egypt, MB thretened Christians if they vote for Shafiek they will be killed not to mention stealing millions of national ID (Social security numbers) and voted for them using women wearing veil and voting using their IDs and finally having a press conference three hours after the last poll closed declaring Morsi a winner even before the majority of the votes being counted. Now MB thretened violence if their candidate Morsi loose the election. Why Morsi declared himself a winner three hours after the last polling station was closed when more than 12 millions votes were not counted in close-tie election where more than 3 millions votes are now contested before the commission for presidential election.
UPDATE June 24, 2012
Morsi was declared the elected president. The hero here is the commission for presidential election who saved the Egyptians from a civil war. Egyptians will have the second revolution from famine or unnecessary war with Israel when they enjoyed peace since 1976.
