The "Pro" And "Anti" Egypt Coup Crowds Now Gathering, In Two Dramatic Pictures

Tyler Durden's picture




 

If there was a day when the post-military coup situation in Egypt could come to an explosive culmination, today is the first such opportunity. The pro-Morsi, Muslim Brotherhood-led supporters, having regained their bearings after last week's tumultuous events in which they were forcibly removed from power, have regrouped and are organizing protest marches across various Egyptian cities. The problem is that so are the victorious anti-Morsi groups, which match the supportive rallies in size, and also have the support of the military.

Ahram reports:

Marches in Cairo, planned to kick off at 5pm on Sunday, will set out from Fatah Mosque in Cairo's Ramses district; the nearby Sayeda Zeinab Mosque; Mohandeseen district's Mostafa Mahmoud Square and Dawaran Shubra Square in the working-class Shubra Al-Kheima district towards Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo and the Ittihadiya presidential palace in Heliopolis - focal points of mass rallies that led to the overthrow of the Islamist president.

 

Anti-Morsi groups warn of a US-Brotherhood plot to "occupy" their protest venues - namely Tahrir Square - the cradle of the 2011 revolution.

 

In Egypt's second city of Alexandria, two marches are planned to converge at the Sidi Gaber Square - a site of many recent clashes.

 

Marches are scheduled towards flashpoint squares in the pivotal city of Suez, which will meet in Al-Arbaeen Square, and the Nile Delta city of Mahala at Al-Shoun Square.

 

Provincial towns in Upper Egypt and the Nile Delta will see mass rallies converge outside governors' offices. Rival demonstrations by the former president's Islamist backers – a strong force in Upper Egypt - are planned in the same cities, heightening fears of more violent showdowns.

 

Since president Morsi's ouster on Wednesday, street battles between rival factions have killed at least 37 people and injured more than 1,400.

 

The Muslim Brotherhood-led National Alliance in Support of Legitimacy has called for mass nationwide rallies on Sunday to defend Morsi's "constitutional legitimacy." Thousands of Morsi supporters have already been camping out at Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque in Cairo for over a week with plans to continue.

 

More pro-Morsi demonstrations are planned in other focal points in Cairo, inducing the Presidential Guard Building and Nahda Square near Cairo University - a scene of fierce clashes between rival camps last week.

Yet little does the combustible situation justice quite as effectively as the following two images from Al Jazeera, showing both the anti-Morsi demonstrations in Tahrir Square...

... and the pro-Morsi protest gathering in Nasr City.

"Time for a photo op."

There is a reason that he still is known locally as "Live-Shot".  The most dangerous place in the Commonwealth used to be between a microphone and a camera when Kerry was around.

And I do believe that this is the first time I have ever heard "Courage" associated with JFK, even as <sarc>.  Goin' back to earlier '70s, medal tossing, "Gengis Khan", etc.

The Egyptian military is financed by the U.S. ($1.3 billion/year). A few weeks before the military coup started Hagel and Dempsey met with Egyptian generals. This coup is being financed and was orchestrated by Uncle Sam. There should be no doubt about that.

Can't up arrow you for some reason, so I'll reply instead, your absolutely correct, these people are all doomed to cycles of murder and violence until they wake up to see government IS their PROBLEM, not the answer to anything! 

The same goes for America and the West too, and this is why Obama and his big government nanny crew are stunned and frozen on what to do in Egypt, they think government solves everything, but they have no answers when government finally manifests into what it always does, unbridled tyranny!

and on another note, let me guess which City will NOT be having big protest that become violent and the military will be there in mass.............SUEZ!

No, 0zer0 and the like minded sociopaths that form the perverse cabal of NWO efforts KNOW exactly what to expect from the masses if their plans go too far too fast. Why do you think the NSA is spying on everyone? Why is the IRS given control over everyone? Why is Homeland Security stockpiling BILLIONS of rounds of ammunition? Why did 0zer0 fret about voters "clinging to guns and religion"? No way 0zer0 and the like are stunned by this response. They have been expecting it and planning for it from day 1. Their only hope is that they have enough of the control infrastructure in place to quickly quell the uprisings. That means security control, as well as information control. The only things these sociopaths fear is a French Revolution type of response. It's all about control and making the world slaves. You will know the NWO is upon us when they get serious about taking over the internet "to protect us". That is the signal of the end and it isn't far off after the way TPTB have gone after the mainstream media "leakers".

There is surely no greater lack of imagination than in the field of human governance, as it is taken for granted that there can be no rule of law that isn't instituted and operated by a government, i.e., by a territorial monopoly on the use of force.

No matter how many times it's repeated, once this monopoly comes to be — always and everywhere by the use of a priori force — then no matter how simple and sensible its rule of law might be, it will be used by the government and those who control it — i.e., by the state — to deprive the people of their lives, liberties, property, and produce.

And yet, on it goes, one regime change after another but always a regime.

How often must Einstein be quoted in this regard?

The idiocy and inefficiency of toilet paper has always astounded me. Not until I traveled to SE Asia and witnessed the ubiquitous 'bum gun' attached to every "throne" western style toilet and even the lonely squat toilet did I realize that most of the rest of the world, washes their arses with WATER which is about 1000x more efficient and cleansing than TP. TP is for DRYING your ass after it is clean. Yes, I know about bidets just stressing the fact that even poor Thais can afford a hose with a nozzle, and a T  connector.

And of course, the usual corporate players (look up who owns your TP brand) are behind "something you need"  "because thats the way it is" and so you rebuy TP every few days instead of using the free water available to you. Go figure.

"Hongcha"  You make a good point about what underlies the political turmoil in Egypt. Their economy is crashing. Back when the unrest first hit the streets, it was in response to rising food prices, and a general inflation in necessities of life.

Egypt has long suffered from overpopulation and resource decay, just as you pointed out. Too many people overlook the underlying causes of Egypt's strutural instability.

No matter which side wins government power, the same economic decay is in place. The same rising population will produce youth hungry for jobs. AND, the same media will show the US and European lifestyle on TV every day. The millions who find it hard to afford bread are treated to the Western Media's fascination with wealth, movie stars and excess of eating and drinking.

Egypt is facing the resource shortages of the 21st century. Even the military as rulers have no idea how to drag an overpopulated resouce poor nation out of economic collapse.

Your post is a +100, for pointing to the structural instability and politics can not cure. Other nations are facing the same. Pakistan for one.

Wind,  How old is this forecast? Could Isiah really see the future 2500 years later? I think this forecast has already been fulfilled, no? Isaiah 19.......

A prophecy against Egypt:

See, the Lord rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt. The idols of Egypt tremble before him, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear. 2 “I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—brother will fight against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. 3 The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists.

4 I will hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them,” declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty. 5 The waters of the river will dry up, and the riverbed will be parched and dry. 6 The canals will stink; the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up. The reeds and rushes will wither, 7 also the plants along the Nile, at the mouth of the river. Every sown field along the Nile will become parched, will blow away and be no more.

8 The fishermen will groan and lament, all who cast hooks into the Nile; those who throw nets on the water will pine away. 9 Those who work with combed flax will despair, the weavers of fine linen will lose hope. 10 The workers in cloth will be dejected, and all the wage earners will be sick at heart. 11 The officials of Zoan are nothing but fools; the wise counselors of Pharaoh give senseless advice. How can you say to Pharaoh, “I am one of the wise men, a disciple of the ancient kings”?

12 Where are your wise men now? Let them show you and make known what the Lord Almighty has planned against Egypt. 13 The officials of Zoan have become fools, the leaders of Memphis are deceived; the cornerstones of her peoples have led Egypt astray. 14 The Lord has poured into them a spirit of dizziness; they make Egypt stagger in all that she does, as a drunkard staggers around in his vomit. 15 There is nothing Egypt can do—head or tail, palm branch or reed.

16 In that day the Egyptians will become weaklings. They will shudder with fear at the uplifted hand that the Lord Almighty raises against them. 17 And the land of Judah will bring terror to the Egyptians; everyone to whom Judah is mentioned will be terrified, because of what the Lord Almighty is planning against them.

18 In that day five cities in Egypt will speak the language of Canaan and swear allegiance to the Lord Almighty. One of them will be called the City of the Sun.[a]

19 In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the Lord at its border. 20 It will be a sign and witness to the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he will rescue them. 21 So the Lord will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the Lord. They will worship with sacrifices and grain offerings; they will make vows to the Lord and keep them. 22 The Lord will strike Egypt with a plague; he will strike them and heal them. They will turn to the Lord, and he will respond to their pleas and heal them.

 

23 In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. 24 In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing[b] on the earth. 25 The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.”

May I recommend for any of you folks who feel you really understand the world, the following two videos. The first link is actually 3 videos but I don't expect anyone to have the patience to actually watch all 3. The first video in the first link is a video about the Giza Pyramid. The 2nd link is about a pyramid I doubt anyone has heard about, in Bosnia. The inferences will blow your mind, imo. Until you absorb the concepts from the first video, the 2nd won't have much meaning for you.

Yes i agree with you to a degree, the resources are definately not getting to an overpopulated system in Egypt, but if they didn't have 75 layers of corruption and government dictatorship sitting in between the resources and the population, shit would be better!! Its amazing how fast REAL free market capitalism can fix imbalances in a society, if its left alone to work!!  But like everywhere in the world today, that would leave the 1% power mongors, dictators, obligarchs, and crony capitalist out of the mix, and no one will let that happen!  So we starve, riot, live on welfare and debt crumbs, and pay more taxes, until this bloated bitch finally implodes!

I don't agree. This is simply a power struggle. If it were truely resource caused then what explains India? They have 1.4 billion people with 18 million more a year and growing.For a population to expand like that things have to be good. Egypt has 91 million and will have over 100 million by 2025 (2.73 births per woman). Sounds to me like they are living the good life or the population wouldn't be expanding like that.

This revolution is about power and money and has nothing to do with resources.......

In part, but it's mostly having had a repressive US-backed dictatorial government, only to have a popular uprising and a new leader who always was, or was made into a puppet, or perceived puppet, of the US/NATO.

The average Egyptian didn't want to have a revolution just to have a new puppet calling for jihad against Syria..you're right that in part they have problems at home including food and the price thereof, but the point is Morsi was not focusing on these internal issues because he was, seemingly, doing the bidding of Washington.

 

The army will no doubt wait a while and help prop up another, weaker leader which Washington and Tel Aviv will go along with.

Yes! Another huge failure, more are sure to follow. There is no overriding moral compass or strategic vision based on any underlying principles that I can see. Alinsky was good at describing how radicals could achieve power by any deceitful means, but said nothing about how to govern once power is achieved.  The Obamao gang is lost.

 

BHO governs with alliances and gimmicks with the worst of the worst such as MB, Hamas, Al-Qaeda, mexican drug cartels, and the central bankers. Exactly what one would expect from the same guy who kicked the Dali Lama (a real Nobel Peace prize laureate) out the side door of the WH past the trash bins.

How can you be bankupt when you are the one running the printer for the world's reserve currency? 

Ben's song, with apologies to the Red Hot Chili Peppers:

 

What I've got you've got to print it for your mamma
What I've got you've got to print it for your pappa
What I've got you've got to print it for your daughter
You do a little dance and then you drink a little water

What I've got you've got to get it put it in you
What I've got you've got to get it put it in you
What I've got you've got to get it put it in you
Reeling with the feeling don't stop continue

Realize I don't want to be a miser
Confide w/sly you'll be the wiser
Young blood is the lovin' upriser
How come everybody wanna keep it like the kaiser?

[Chorus]
Give it away give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away give it away now
I can't tell if I'm a kingpin or a pauper

Greedy little people in a sea of distress
Keep your more to receive your less
Unimpressed by material excess
Love is free love me say hell yes

I'm a low brow but I rock a little know how
No time for the piggies or the hoosegow
Get smart get down with the pow wow
Never been a better time than right now

Alan Greenspan poet and a Doctorate
Alan Greenspan taught me how to off it
Alan Greenspan printing' like he talk it
Goodness me can't you see I'm gonna cough it

[Chorus]

Lucky me swimmin' in my ability
Dancin' down on life with agility
Come and drink it up from my liquidity
Blessed with a bucket of lucky mobility

My mom I love her 'cause she love me
Long gone are the times when she scrub me
Feelin' good my brother gonna hug me
Drink my juice young love chug-a-lug me

There's a river born to be a giver
Keep you warm won't let you shiver
His heart is never gonna wither
Come on everybody time to deliver

[Chorus]

[repeat first verse]
