Interim president has more powers than any president in the history of Egypt, ever. He has executive, judicial and legislative (no parliament) powers. Egyptian newspaper leaked out his hidden jewish credentials along with pro Israeli sentiments (naturally). On the other hand Muslim Brotherhood deputy leader Al-Sharati was arrested with another 300 more arrest warrants against MB leadership hanging. It is now becoming clear the real objectives of the Tamarod. They had little to do with employment and inflation and everything to do with grabbing power away from the world’s largest Islamic political party. What the opposition alliance achieved with the help of the generals could never have been achieved through elections. Congratulations to the zionists, for a skillful performance of behind-the-scene power play in the most important Arab country and the cultural capital of the muslim world.
Interim president Adly wanted to appoint the infamous El-Baradei as the interim prime minister. El Baradei will not be forgotten as the man who sat in the UNSC beside Dr Blix telling the world what the Iraqi invaders wanted them to hear. His speech, in contrast to Dr Blix (I remember every single moment of that UNSC meeting) sealed the fate of millions of muslim brothers and sisters in Iraq. The blood of Iraqis was not enough to satisfy this man. He lost to MB in the 2012 elections and cried foul from the first day. He organized his leftist supporters, journalists, bankers and international supporters (Israeli lobby) to organize the ouster of the elected government of Morsi. He finally got what he wanted, or more precisely, what the Israeli lobby had been wanting for so long since the fall of Mubarak, the overthrow of elected MB and the installation of a puppet clerk bowing to Israel.
Defeated presidential candidate Amr Mousa called the ouster of democratic government of president Morsi a “second revolution”. Muslim Brotherhood (MB) supporters converged on Friday for the “counter revolution” at Nasr city demanding the re-instatement of the only legitimate president – Morsi. Mohamed Badei, supreme leader of MB not only in Egypt but also in the greater Arab world, gave a fiery speech warning the generals that supporters were ready to sacrifice “their blood” for the sake of restoring the legitimate elected president Morsi. When Badei talks people listen, and that includes people all over Egypt, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, Lebanon and other Arab countries where MB has a presence. His words must have been taken very seriously as a warning for the generals regarding the party’s principled and uncompromising stand.
MB supreme leader ranks above Dr Morsi in party hierarchy. While in charge of the Arab republic thought to be on their way to a dominant regional leadership role in the future. America and the west would have depended on the emergence of MB as the political heavyweight of the Arab world distinctly separate from the past legacy of ruthless tyrants.
36 people died already confirmed by the Health Ministry in violent clashes across the country. There are allegations that soldiers opened fire using live ammunitions on protesters. It would be the first event of human rights violations if it’s true. Not that it would be more acceptable to see civilians shooting and killing each other which would prove the collapse of law and order situation directing at a possible civil war scenario.
If the army generals wanted to save the country from further chaos following the June 30 rally of the Tamarod (the rebels) they achieved the exact opposite of their objective. Tahrir Square and Nasr city represent the two polarizations in the republic that exists as a result of the general’s selectiveness in protecting state organs. MB supporters want to understand if the generals of the Egyptian army rightfully belong to “ALL” the people or selectively to the Tamarod. If it’s about numbers, where did the thousands of MB supporters go wrong, or does that not count?
Morsi’s failure was not as much in his suspicious hidden agenda to radicalize his country by giving plum jobs to his political friends. Morsi could have never won this game anyway even if he had replaced all the heads of government institutions with MB loyalists. Morsi inherited a country that essentially belonged to the old regime, starting with Col Gemal Nasser followed by Anwar Sadat and ending with Husni Mubarak. Bureaucracy, judiciary, army, security, foreign affairs and all other administrative state organs had been built under the generals. It would have been impossible to overturn the whole state infra structure with a single democratic election, and more so within only 12 months of assuming power.
Without MB’s participation in the interim government the army has further pushed the largest and the most important political group into a corner. What will the establishment do without the direct support of the MB? It looks more like a return to Mubarak era as the situation goes from bad to worse.
