If you are one of those persons, who supported the coup psy-op in Egypt, using the reasoning that the coup was undertaken to achieve democratic restoration in Egypt, this post is not going to make you happy.
If you were one of those individuals who equated the Syrian Army to the Egyptian Army and the actions ongoing in their respective nations as the same, this post is not for you.
It will challenge your cherished beliefs. And for whatever reason people don’t want their beliefs challenged. You have been warned. The proposition is the same as the one originally put forth more then a month ago. Conditions have been and are now being created to instigate civil war. Including, but not limited to further dividing of Egyptian society and possibly the balkanization of Egypt. And that the Egyptian military is colluding with the Israeli military under the NATO umbrella. It's not a pleasant thought, but, it is worth considering.
I am hoping the Egyptians can avoid this fate.
You may recall last week two important events taking place in Egypt that will push Egyptian society ever closer to the hoped for, by NATO/Israel, civil war.
In other words, the conditions are presently being created for destabilization.
First: the selection and virtually guaranteed approval of Robert S Ford as Ambassador of Death, ooops I mean as US Ambassador to Egypt
Tuesday August 6/2013 Very Ominous for Egypt: Robert S Ford, the next Ambassador to Egypt.
“His appointment to Egypt, fits like glove to hand for the planned destabilization and slide to civil war, mentioned here at the blog.......”
Second: The Egyptian military said it was no longer negotiating with the Morsi supporting protestors and that it was going to forcibly disperse them. As it was plainly put, "the Egyptian military is going to crack heads". You can find that info in this post: Egypt, Syria, Propaganda and more Propaganda, Eid Aid/IHH and weapons
|Supporters of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi shout slogans in Nahda square, where protesters installed their camp near Cairo University in Giza, southwest of Cairo, Egypt,|
Though this is being denied.
WSJ is reporting that plans to lay seige to the camps will be enacted as early as today
Egyptian government officials said police could crack down as early as Monday on two vast camps in Cairo supporting ousted President Mohammed Morsi, a move that could lead to clashes as impassioned demonstrators hunker down in the tent cities.
This is clearly being set up to turn very ugly.
Meanwhile........... we have the happenings in Sinai ??? With multiple and conflicting reports
*Egyptian Army claims they strike the militants via helicopter
*Israeli defense minister denounces rumours of drone strike in Egypt's Sinai
*Militants claim an Israeli drone strike
It seems sensible to suppose that Israel and the Egyptian military conducted the strike together.
The Egyptian military helicopters presence would present convenient cover for the Israeli strike.
Can’t say for sure. Of course. But, the Egyptian military and Israeli military colluding is not a stretch.
Despite the Israeli claims that " it respects Egyptian sovereignty" , Israel truly covets the Sinai.
The article linked & excerpted below is an interesting article: Egypt military kills own people while collaborating with Israel
Touching on both the move to take down the protest camps and the Sinai killings
CAIRO,: The Egyptian military’s anti-Islamic animus and close collaboration with the Zionists is becoming exposed rapidly. The interior ministry, under instructions from the military announced that starting early tomorrow morning, the police and other security forces would besiege the pro-Mursi sit-ins at Rabba al-Adawiya in Nasr City and Giza City preventing any food or water being allowed in.
Further, protesters would be allowed to leave but not return. At the same time, electricity would be cut off to the area in the sweltering heat so that people are forced to leave the locales they are currently occupying with their families including women and children.
At the other end of the spectrum, the Egyptian military in collaboration with the Zionists have launched attacks in northern Sinai to protect Zionist Israel (? not sure that "protection" was the reason for the attacks).
Egyptian military sources said they have killed 20 “militants” in the Sinai yesterday bringing the death toll to more than 60 in the last week. At the same time, early Saturday, Israeli drones carried out an attack in Sinai, pointing to a significant shift in the power relations between Egypt and Israel.
Egyptian officials admitted that the (drone?) attack took place but after fierce public outcry, gave a statement declaring that one of the Egyptian military’s attack helicopters participated in the attack. Five people were killed and one rocket launcher was destroyed. A militant group called Ansar Bait al-Muqadis claimed that the men belonged to its organization.
According to The Washington Post, residents heard a large explosion late Friday/early Saturday morning in el-Agra, an area in the northern region of the Sinai Peninsula close to Egypt’s border with Israel. Egyptian officials speaking on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to journalists said the Israeli attack was carried out in cooperation with Egyptian authorities.
Yes, it is an anonymous official, which can be taken a number of ways. In this case, with or without the anonymous official it makes sense that Egyptian military and Israeli military cooperated.
The relationship between militant groups, corrupt Middle Eastern powers, and the US military-industrial complex is hazy—many al-Qaeda groups are actually equipped and trained by NATO and Pentagon. (BINGO!) However, the spokesman for Ansar Bait al-Muqadis (a militant group you are supposed to believe is not connected to the MIC, but, likely is) that emerged in 2012 pointed out an important fact about Egypt’s loss of sovereignty following the recent military coup.
“What is greater treason than the Egyptian army allowing the Zionist drones to violate Egyptian airspace now and then?” ( Perfect meme for recruitment of useful dupes.) the spokesman asked. According to a recent report in the LA Times, the two countries’ militaries have been “working more closely” in recent weeks in an attempt to bring the peninsula under control.
The US and European media have been reporting the recent attack as a way to cover for Israel. According to a report in The Washington Post, an Egyptian security official, also speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that in recent weeks Egypt had warned Israel about the possibility of rocket strikes by “terrorist” groups. This serves to justify the drone attack under the catch-all justification of Israel’s security. Even more significantly, it reveals the Egyptian military to be firmly within the camp of NATO and Pentagon, to the point that it is placing Israeli interests above its own sovereignty.
Meanwhile, Egypt is within the throes of civil war between pro-military and secular forces on the one hand and Islamic parties aligned with deposed President Mohamed Mursi on the other. Every day over the weekend, tens of thousands of Mursi supporters marched in the streets of Cairo, clashing with military forces that are increasingly willing to use lethal and violent force against protesters.
Given the military’s brutal nature and its penchant for killing civilians, there are likely to be more blood baths in Nasr City and Giza City. Already, there have been two massacres perpetrated by the military and police forces against unarmed civilians. One was carried out on July 8 in which 103 people were killed and the other on July 26-27 resulted in 200 civilians deaths. In each case, civilians were shot in the head and neck by snipers as well as heavily armed troops.
In order to tighten its illegitimate grip on power, the military is prepared to push Egypt into civil war that would destroy this once great country. It has now been reduced to a US-zionist puppet.
