The video is chilling: 23-year-old Mahmoud el-Ahmady desperately appeals to the judge in an Egyptian court. His testimony is agonising to watch: a young man who has obviously been brutalised by an unfair regime, now trying to prove his innocence before a flawed justice system.
October marks the forty-fifth anniversary of the Egypt-Syria War with Zionist Israel. Had it not been for Anwar Sadat’s cowardice, the Egyptian General, Muhammad Shadhli was winning the war, had he been allowed to do so.
Egypt under General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi is a fascist state. This was reconfirmed today (September 8) when the Cairo Criminal Court sentenced 75 people to death.
The three-year dictatorship of the Egyptian Pharaoh, El-Sisi has increased the misery of the people and there is no end in sight for any relief.
There is an election of sorts taking place in Egypt right now. The sole candidate is General Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi, the brute in uniform whose only opponent used to be his campaign manager. This farce is being enacted in order to provide a veneer of legitimacy to a blood-soaked regime.
By locking up all challengers, dictator el Sisi wants to be crowned uncontested king in Egypt’s presidential elections.
Dr Mohammed Mahdi Akef, the former Murshid (spiritual guide) of the Ikhwan al Muslimeen, died in an Egyptian hospital where he was moved from prison. Suffering from cancer, the military regime refused to provide him medication. He was 89.
Egypt under the military dictatorship of Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, has been rewarded yet again by the United States for being a faithful ally in America’s quest for dominance in the North African region straddling the Mediterranean.
It was three years ago that the Egyptian army perpetrated a bloodbath against innocent civilians in Cairo. General Sisi was and remains head of the military regime. Far from condemning the killings of innocent, Sisi is welcomed in Western capitals.
The Saudis first launched their sectarian crusade against the Islamic Republic of Iran, now they have gone after Qatar, a fellow Wahhabi bastion. Their quarrel is pathetic and childish and aims to protect Zionist Israel.
June 1967 marked the 50th anniversary of the defeat of a number of Arabian armies at the hands of the Zionist invaders. Arabian nationalism proved no match for Zionist nationalism.
The fickleness of Arabian potentates was again on display today as the Egyptian dictator Abdel Fatah el Sisi landed in Riyadh. The aged and dementia-afflicted Saudi King Salman received him at the airport as Sisi stepped off the plane. Did Salman recognize the balding man from Cairo?
He gained prominence during the Sadat dictatorship and his staunch opposition to the so-called peace treaty with Zionist Israel that he denounced as a complete surrender and betrayal of the Egyptian and Palestinian people. Sheikh Omar called for an Islamic revolution in Egypt to rid the corrupt system and bring about an Islamic socio-political order in society.
There is little in common between the Egyptian and Saudi regimes even if both are puppets of the West and the Saudis have tried to buttress the crumbling Egyptian economy. Their differences are coming to the fore amid rising tensions between the two oppressive regimes.
The fickle Arabian rulers are at each other’s throat one minute and rubbing noses and kissing the next. This is what is happening with the rulers of two regimes: Bani Saud of Arabia and the Pharaoh of Egypt.
There is a clear break between the Egyptians and Saudis despite the Saudis having given billions in aid to Cairo.
A common threat from the takfiri terrorists has forced the two regimes in Egypt and Syria to cooperate with each other. This is a blow to Saudi machinations in the region.2
Using the garb of Sufism, the self-styled religious preacher, Fethullah Gulen has turned out to be a US-Zionist puppet who is prepared to advance their agenda. This is how the enemies of Islam operate.2
Will the Saudis achieve their political and military objectives by building a bridge across the Red Sea to link-up with Egypt? If the bridge between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain is any guide, it will merely mean more Saudis satiating their carnal desires, this time going West. As far as the Saudis creating an anti-Iran alliance is concerned, which is what the bridge is reality meant for, it will be a non-starter. The Saudis will not survive.
While associated with renewal and growth, the month of March brings grim reminder of how terribly movements for change in the Muslim world have been subverted. Leaders of Islamic movements need to pay close attention to their modus operandi.
