Meanwhile, In Egypt... - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Update: The Muslim Brotherhood offices have been set on fire...

It appears the re-civil-war in Egypt is gathering pace. What started at tens of thousands has swelled to hundreds of thousands of people crowded into the infamous Tahrir Square. As the live feed below shows, for now it is lasers, fireworks, but fires are starting to breakout and small skirmishes with police are being reported as the crowds call for Morsi's ouster. Morsi's supporters/civil servants, meanwhile, demand that "the elected president has to complete his term. We will not relinquish this even at the cost of blood."

 

 

 

 

Some further color via The FT,

...

 

Tensions are soaring in the run-up to Sunday, when the opposition hopes a massive turnout will help to unseat Mr Morsi. Dozens of people were injured, some with birdshot pellets, as rival demonstrations by Islamists and their opponents in Cairo attracted thousands of people.

 

Organisers of a campaign called Tamarrod, or “Rebellion”, say they have collected millions of names on a petition calling for early presidential elections.

 

The opposition blames Mr Morsi for what it says are attempts to entrench the power of his Muslim Brotherhood group and marginalise other forces.

 

They also say Mr Morsi’s actions since he came to office have deepened divisions in the country and he has failed to live up to his promise to be a president of all Egyptians, not just Islamists.

 

The Islamists dismiss the opposition as bad losers at the ballot box who have allied themselves with corrupt remnants of the overthrown regime of Hosni Mubarak, the former president.

 

...

 

"The elected president has to complete his term,” said Khaled al-Mahdi, a civil servant from the Delta province of Sharqiya. “We will not relinquish this even at the cost of blood.”

 

...

 

“Vigilance is required to ensure we do not slide into civil war,” said a statement by Al-Azhar, the venerable Islamic university revered across the Sunni world. Broadly supportive of Mr Morsi, the statement blamed “criminal gangs” who besieged mosques for street violence which the Brotherhood said has killed five of its supporters this week.

Anyone who would risk a day in Egyptian detention has balls of steel.  We may have our problems here in Fuck Yeah, but there they will hook up battery cables to your privates and ask politely where your friends live and there is not fuck all that will be done about it when your charred remains are dumped in a mass grave after you give up everyone you ever met.  Of course that is what we all can look forward to if we continue to be so complacent.  Seems to me they are already sending a pretty clear message (via Snowden) that our days of typing posts like this are numbered.

A Reichstag moment would more accurately be Morsi burning his own offices and then killing all these protesters in revenge, but your point is taken. The Persian people let a minority rapidly take over and alter their lives against their will. In this way is political Islam most like communism. It is good to see the Egyptians resist Obama's will even if American's won't.

And if you look closely you might see US soldiers working riot control since the Oreo had some military members deployed to Egypt to help out the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian military essentially gave Morsi a verbal no confidence vote by refusing to intervene with the anti Morsi protests. You won't see that in the controlled state media though.

This is the same Muslim Brotherhood who funded and coordinated the attacks on Benghazi and the Egyptian uSSa Embassy at the same time.

The Muslim Brotherhood is an ally of the United States and NATO. Long ago the Muslim Brotherhood was on the CIA's support and fund list. The brilliant move to get the Muslim Brotherhood elected in Egypt after the revolution was a major victory for US foreign policy.

The problem comes in when the secular and minority religious Egytians rise up against the more radical Islamic nature of Muslim Brotherhood rule. This was another western funded bait and switch. Egyptians thought they were electing a Muslim and Nationalistic Government, instead they got a US allied government that would support Israel and the US Mideastern policies, while feeding radical Islam to the masses. The dual nature of this Muslim Brotherhood government, Islamic and Pro-USA seems odd, but it was crarefully crafted over the decades of CIA funding ans support. Notice that the forces the USA backs in Syria are the Muslim Brotherhood Party and the militaristic radical Jihadists like Al-Qaeda.

The secular Syrians are being killed by US proxies. The secular Egyptians are being repressed and killed by US backed proxies in the form of the Muslim Brotherhood.

If you go back and look at Mideast Policy, the US has very often backed radical Islam and actually funded the groups who founded these parties. In the end, the US is backing Muslim Religious Government that imposes totalitarian rule at home while backing the US and NATO in it's Mid East wars and control and also backing IMF and Western Corporate policy for these nations. It is all bait and switch. Better to control and use radical Islam for western goals.

Where the USA gets angry and starts mass killings, is when Islamic forces turn against their former US friends. Like Taliban, once funded and backed by the USA, when they allowed Jihad to extend even to US targets, then the invasion and bombing happened. Just like the US backs Islamic Chechen terror in the name of weakening Russia.

American people should ignore the Media Lies, and look at the real US record. We have often backed and even created Islamic parties and fighting forces. Look to Syria today, this is a PERFECT example of using radical Islam for US foreign goals.

Is this "ally" in a written agreement/treaty?  Are you sure ally is the right word? 

Sure we are not just buying priortiy access to the Suez and security from the south for Israel through the 1979 Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty?   And what did happen to old Anwar after signing the treaty?

#Communist-Socialist, Harold Meyerson Is Calling For An Apartheid Fence Against White Southerners

Contributed by David Ben Moshe-

Jews like this create their own anti-semitism. He probably lives in an upscale neighborhood and wouldn’t dare venture into a Negro or Hispanic section of his town.  ”Jews” like this make me sick and embarrassed that I’m a Jew.

Actually, I AM a Jew, Harold is a kike.  Of course, what he says is not racist. Its only racist when whites do it.

 Until that day, though, if the federal government wants to build a fence that keeps the United States safe from the dangers of lower wages and poverty and their attendant ills — and the all-round fruitcakery of the right-wing white South–— it should build that fence from Norfolk to Dallas. There’s nothing wrong with a fence, so long as you put it in the right place

The rest: Washington Post columnists says put a fence around white southerners

Perhaps it’s time for the south to reinstitute an old custom, the KKK??

 

Not a bad idea if they let the south secede also without a civil war.

I am sick of foreigners of any brand name using the USA for their benefit, and thinking that we will just give a free pass to any dual passport holder, regardless of whether their contribution to the USA is negated by their hatred of it, and wanting to turn the USA into another failed, impoverished old place...another version of Britain, Europe, the Middle East.

Excellent observations about the state we are in, Mr DCH.

It is long overdue for American jews to reject nazionism and those who fund it, promote it, and make war with our blood and treasure.

Gaza is a prototype for the world if nazionists get their way, aided by the CIA, Mossad...and Operation Paperclip which brought the Naziionists into the USA after Hitler failed.

Rothschild said there would be no room for poor jews in the new state of Israel. Israelis ought to ponder on that, and American jews ought to be ashamed that they have been cheated, again...and let their Christian friends carry the biggest blood loss.

With no economic base Egypt will remain in perpetual chaos. 

To help them keep from fighting we give them "military aid".    Kerry quietly approve $1.3 Billion in May. Last March Hillary Clinton used a national security waiver to provide  $1.5 Billion.  Been the same for years.

Just those two years translates into 10,000 taxpayers paying $280,000 each in their lifetime.  Meaning you most likely worked every Monday and part of Tuesday your whole life just to watch this event unfolding.  Makes one proud to be a taxpayer.

We are sheeple and we obey our masters. Because we fright the unknown, uncertainty and harm. Most people would reveal every secret they know of if someone held a pistol to their head, hoping that if they reveal everything they will live. Even though they will die nontheless. We are weak and pathetic. Martin Luther King Jr. once said; "A man who does not have something for which he is willing to die is not fit to live".

Why we give:

Camp David Accords (1979): The agreement also resulted in the United States committing to several billion dollars worth of annual subsidies to the governments of both Israel and Egypt, subsidies which continue to this day, and are given as a mixture of grants and aid packages committed to purchasing U.S. materiel. (wiki)

This is what holds the little peace there is between Israel and Egypt.  It also gives us priority access to the Suez.  The Suez Canal (controlled by Egypt) matters to the oil giants and a disfunctional Egypt could disrupt that flow.

Muslim Brotherhood, redux. Muslim Brotherhood, originally founded, funded and promoted by Nazis in the 1930s. Muslim Brotherhood, now funded and promoted by nazionists and the Al-CIAda.

The aim: continue the fascist intent of the old monarchies of Britain and Europe, aided by the Vatican hofjuden, and their nazionism.

Focus on the Trilateral Commission, and its Rockefeller/Rothschild leaders who are deliberately waging war on all in order to sustain the failed inbred minority status woe...who blew themselves up with unregulated otc derivatives in 2008.

Christians were relatively safe in Egypt, Libya, Syria and other places before the 'Arab Spring' lie was foisted upon those lands by the corporatists funded mostly by nazionist banksters like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Deutsche, SocGen, HSBC...Bank of un-America...all two faced lying bastids, tools of the Trilateral Commission, headed by the Rockefeller/Rothschild NAZIONISTs of ye olde Englande and Europe.
