The good news from Cairo

There is no doubt that the election of Muammed Morsi as President of Egypt is a heartening news for all free men and women around the world.

It is certainly good news for the Egyptian people, exhausted and thoroughly impoverished by decades of corruption and decadence sustained by military dictators who were mostly answerable to foreign powers rather than to the masses.

It is good news for the Arab world where Egypt always assumed the ultimate leadership role, a role without which the Arabs were left like disoriented orphans, immersed in their endless tribal preoccupations and conflicts.

We also hope it is going to be good news for the Palestinians and their enduring just cause. Needless to say, the Palestinian cause suffered immensely when the traditionally commanding role of Egypt was marginalized, even neutralized, following the conclusion of the camp David treaty with Israel .

That infamous treaty enabled the criminal Zionist entity to have a free season on the Palestinians, culminating in the genocidal blitzkrieg on the Gaza Strip in 2008-9, which killed and maimed thousands of civilians and wreaked havoc on man, stone and plant.

The shocking collusion between Israel and the defunct Egyptian regime of Hosni Mubarak during that Nazi-like aggression prompted Israeli cabinet minister Benjamin Benalezer to remark that Egypt was Israel’s main and most important ally in the Arab world.

To be sure, the road is not going to be paved with roses for the new President of Egypt. The challenges awaiting him or laying in wait for him are formidable. However, with the mind of an engineer and a sense of a wise man, Morsi should be able to tackle or at least neutralize most of these odds.

The Egyptian economy is virtually in the intensive care unit and needs immediate revival and recuperation. Thirty years of corruption, mismanagement and disastrous policies, based on favoritism, nepotism and cronyism, brought millions of Egyptians to the brink of starvation.

Egypt doesn’t lack the skills needed to transform the country from a perpetual recipient of aid into another Turkey or even another South Korea. It just needs an honest leadership that puts the country’s future and interests above the ruler’s ambitions and political expediency.

More over, Egypt under Morsi will have to deliver itself from the clutches of American bullying and political and economic pressure. We are not suggesting that the new Egypt should adopt a hostile discourse against the United States. Far from that, friendly relations, based on mutual respect and mutual interests, ought to be sought with all countries. That is the sane and wise policy to adopt.

None the less, Egypt should make it sufficiently clear to Washington that things have changed in Cairo and much of the Arab world and that the 90 million Egyptians and another 230 million Arabs will no longer allow themselves to be humiliated and enslaved by a few Jewish robber barons controlling the government and Congress of the United States.

In short, Egypt must guard its sovereignty and national dignity, even at the expense of displeasing Washington and other western capitals.

As to Israel, the perpetual criminal aggressor and lebensraum-seeker, Egypt must make it clear to the Zionist leadership that Egypt can never be a friend or peaceable neighbor of the Jewish state as long as the Zionist regime occupies Palestine, especially Jerusalem, and pursues its ethnic cleansing enterprise against its people.

Again, no one is suggesting that Egypt should wage an all-out war against the criminal entity. However, Egypt under the new leadership can’t and must not allow Zionist terrorists and gangsters to have a free season on the Palestinians with impunity.

Egypt is also advised to renegotiate its peace treaty with Israel since that oblique and disgraceful treaty effectively deprived Egypt of its sovereignty over the Sinai peninsula.

In addition, Egypt must strengthen itself militarily in order to repulse all actual and potential predators. This necessarily means that Egypt must seek the possession of a strategic deterrent if only to protect its people and their vital interests from the morbid vagaries and sick tendencies of Israel.

Finally, Egypt must lend a helping hand to all Arab peoples seeking freedom and liberation from their tyrannical regimes as in Syria where a decidedly criminal minority sectarian regime is effectively exterminating its people in order to stay in power.

In 1968, the late British writer and journalist, Peter Mansfield, wrote that the Muslim Brotherhood was a spent force and that it wouldn’t see the light of the day again, thanks to Nasser’s repression of the group.

The fact that the MB has been able to recuperate and even reach the helm of power in the most important and populous Arab country testifies to the Islamic movement’s resilience and enduring vigor.

We hope and pray that this great event, the first of its kind since the downfall of the Ottoman state in 1924, will herald an entirely new era for this region, an era of freedom, true democracy, liberation and peace.

    There is no doubt that the election of Muammed Morsi as President of Egypt, the great event, the first of its kind since the downfall of the Ottoman state in 1924, is a heartening news for all free men and women around the world. Thus claimed the sectarian Khalid Amayered.

    The free men around the world are nothing but his Brothers of America brothers around the world.

    He hope the election of Muammed Morsi as President of Egypt “is going to be good news for the Palestinians and their enduring just cause.”

    In fact Mursi is aware that “It is a pre-condition to recognize Israel in order to govern?”  Therefore govern he should recognize he avoided to mention Palestine not once in his inaugural speeches but managed to send many peace gestures to Israel.

    Amayereh is calling Egypt to guard “its sovereignty and national dignity, even at the expense of displeasing Washington and other western capitals.” and “make it clear to the Zionist leadership that Egypt can never be a friend or peaceable neighbor of the Jewish state as long as the Zionist regime occupies Palestine, especially Jerusalem, and pursues its ethnic cleansing enterprise against its people.”….” no one is suggesting that Egypt should wage an all-out war against the criminal entity. However, Egypt under the new leadership can’t and must not allow Zionist terrorists and gangsters to have a free season on the Palestinians with impunity.”…”renegotiate its peace treaty with Israel”… “must seek the possession of a strategic deterrent if only to protect its people and their vital interests from the morbid vagaries and sick tendencies of Israel”

    With “the mind of an engineer and a sense of a wise man”, shall turn Egypt into another Turkey or even another South Korea. In other words in a Nato puppet regime lending “a helping hand to all Arab peoples seeking freedom and liberation from their tyrannical regimes as in Syria where a decidedly criminal minority sectarian regime is effectively exterminating its people in order to stay in power.”

    In fact the opportionist MB sold Palestine, Jerusalem, and Hamas, their daughter for a president without balls while the tyrannical regime in Syria is fighting the global war to keep their cause the Palestinian cause alive.

    Amayereh Quoted “the late British writer and journalist, Peter Mansfield, wrote that the Muslim Brotherhood was a spent force and that it wouldn’t see the light of the day again, thanks to Nasser’s repression of the group.”.

    In fact thaks to MB treason.

    Meanwhile, “Hamas is now doing a dance toward the Syrian regime. The organization has been a close ally – if not client – of the Syrian regime for long years and yet now its wants to pretend that its years of alliance with the Syrian regime never ever happened.

    Hamas wants to have it both ways: it wants to take the easy road by waiting the Syrian crisis out, hoping that it would inflict little political damage on its fortunes.

    To the Syrian opposition, Hamas can claim that it did not support the Syrian regime and that its leader in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, once made a generic and general statement about support for the Syrian people. This is the claim of support for the Syrian uprising by Hamas.

    For the Syrian regime, Hamas can note that it has not made explicit statements against the Syrian regime and that it has not expressed any support for any of the armed opposition groups inside Syria.
    Hamas wish that the Syrian crisis would end so that it can easily pick the side of the victor. It has been waiting for all those months hoping for an early outcome. The prolongation of the crisis has meant that Hamas can prefer to be mostly silent.

    But the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in several Arab countries has made Hamas more obligated to pay homage to the mother organization. Mahmoud al-Zahhar even cast a ballot in the Egyptian election.

    But if Hamas wants to identify with the Syrian opposition and its armed groups – in the event that its side wins, it should say so and it should state that clearly. But if Hamas were to do that, it would be obligated to explain and justify its long years of support for the Syrian regime.

    And if Hamas wants to identify with the Syrian regime – in the event it succeeded in crushing opposition in the country – Hamas would be obligated to explain to the regime its months-long silence on Syria.

    The position of Hamas vis-à-vis the Syrian crises reeks of political opportunism. Al-Quds Al-Arabi even cited Khaled Meshal as stating that he would abandon the Iranian sponsor if another financial backer can be found.

    Hamas has been sending delegations to GCC countries but Saudi Arabia has rebuffed repeated requests by Hamas for meetings with Saudi officials. Saudi Arabia has been requesting that Hamas cut off ties with Iran.

    It is likely that Hamas will maintain its policy of wait-and-stay-silent on Syria until a victor emerges. Only then will Hamas resume its tone of staunch support for the Syrian regime, or it will manufacture a new tone of support for its enemies. It all depends on the outcome.

    In case you missed it: Khalid Amayereh calling for “UNITY”??

    “The good news from Cairo ”

    this latest from agent amayreh reminds me of all those editorials and articles that appeared the day after obama won his presidential election. and like all those pundits praising that a new era has begun, their words of hope and change proved to be either very naive wishful thinking or cynical, duplitious advertising.

    hamas’ indecision just cost it another member:

    http://news.antiwar.com/2012/06/28/hamas-mans-assassination-in-syria-fuels-reports-of-mossad-involvement/

    “The assassination of Hamas official Kamal Ranaja yesterday in the Syrian capital of Damascus has fueled speculation of Israeli culpability, with some Hamas figures pointing the finger directly at Mossad.”

    cutting a deal with jewish zionists is like pouring blood in shark infested waters and going skinny dipping.

    Alex how can I read your blog if I have no clue who you are?

    You are the liar, you have not one single word to say that is not against Sunni Muslims.

    • alex June 29, 2012 at 9:32 am #

      Let the readers know who is the liar,
      Liar Laura claimed that she can’t read my blog because she has no clue who I am, Like all Zionist agents I met online she wants to know who is the uprooted palestinian, is Alex is his real name???…

      Here is a copy of her comment on the Blog she don’t know:
      laura stuartsaid…There are some Palestinians amongst my friends who say that Assad has helped them, this is true. But success will never come for the Muslims by expecting a solution from a deviant sect like the Shia. Success for the Palestinians will only come from Allah s.w.t. and the Palestinians of all people should know that there is no solution from any other power.8:53 AM, March 01, 2012
      uprooted Palestiniansaid…
      I am sure Laura have read my comment on her post What About Syria?
      on the wrong place. I wonder why”

      I am sure she will read my new comment, and I hope she would comment here under this post3:25 PM, March 02, 2012
      Petersaid…
      Shame on you “laura Stuart”!
      Calling Shia a deviant sect?! (reveals the divide and conquer strategy of the neo colonial/neo-imperial mind set.)
      I am being polite, because calling Shia a deviant sect is deeply criminal. But hey, criminality is what defines the neo liberal neo conservative death cult that sent you to deliver this message of hate.
      My immdeiate reaction is you play the role of the “Bride of Frankenstein” since your creator cowers in some MI6, Mossad, or Army/Naval Intelligence gay party house in Marseille or Naples.
      Run along and play dear cuz the death cult that pays you hates you more then anyone else. They are the ultimate misogynists , but I am sure you are ignorant of this.It’s a pity how you are being used, some day soon they will throw you over their shoulder for someone else.(use them awhile then it’s over the shoulder)9:35 PM, March 04, 2012

  7. Laura Stuart June 29, 2012 at 11:23 am #

    I still have no clue who you are.

    So my belief that the Shia is a deviant belief – which is clearly a theological belief, in your opinion makes me a Zionist.

    Well that’s an interesting view.

    • alex June 29, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

      “I still have no clue who you are.”
      You shall never have a clew who I am.
      But you knew my blog and a posted a comment on it.
      Thats enough for the readers to know that you are a liar.
      As for your sectarian belive, in my opinion it makes you more dangerous than Zionists.
      Your hands and veil is soaked with blood including the blood of Kamal Ranaja killed by MOSSAD. Thanks for your Syrian brothers.

    Despite alex’s inability at anger management and his puerile imprecations, I see his point of view as correct and find this article woefully short on logic and credibility. Here’s a whopper of self-contradiction:

    “Egypt doesn’t lack the skills needed to transform the country from a perpetual recipient of aid into another Turkey”

    followed by:

    “Egypt under Morsi will have to deliver itself from the clutches of American bullying and political and economic pressure”

    So, Egypt needs to start a career as a working girl and get herself a pimp in order to become an independent woman?

    A puzzling statement: “In addition, Egypt must strengthen itself militarily in order to repulse all actual and potential predators.”

    And it will accomplish that by purchasing weaponry from Palau and doing joint military exercises with Lichtenstein?

    I am neither interested in nor qualified for making guesses about the author’s motivations: short-sighted sectarianism or ghost writing for the ME Desk at the US State Department. So I won’t.
    But come on, Mr. Amayreh, to pour it on this thick you must think your readers (a) have no access to other sources of information on the internet or (b) are so deeply sectarian as to be blind.

  11. Laura Stuart June 29, 2012 at 3:37 pm #

    I find absolutely no reference to anything remotely sectarian in the above article so I have no idea Ariadna why you mention it.

    There is a massive push to set Muslim against Muslim and the al Saud have been pushing that line for a couple of years. When I attended the protests outside the Syrian embassy at the start of the uprising there were lebanese Shia Muslims there throwing stones and hurling abuse at us. I attended protests regularly at all of the embassies throughout the Arab uprisings but that was the first taste of the sectarian divide for me. A horrible experience. Despite all the negative stuff written by Alex and others about the Muslim Brotherhood, they have in fact proposed a much closer relationship with Iran. In fact Iran sent a ship through the Suez and opened up an embassy in Cairo. When I see the M.B. being accused of being American stooges or zionists I wonder if anyone realises how difficult the situation really is for them in Egypt and how fine a tightrope they are going to have to walk. American dollars buy the Military so is everyone expecting the M.B. to order the Military to go to war with Israel and if they don’t they must be Zionists?

    I suppose Turkey is often used as an example because of the fact that the Military is/was so strong like in Egypt and they also control much of the economy. The biggest challenge the government has is to feed it’s population in the immediate future.

  12. Ariadna Theokopoulos June 29, 2012 at 4:10 pm #

    “There is a massive push to set Muslim against Muslim”
    You got that right. It is helpful that you realize that.
    But supporting a foreign-backed intervention against Syria, as you also continue to defend the intervention in Libya, does not seem compatible with having understood that correct realization.

    “I suppose Turkey is often used as an example because of the fact that the Military is/was so strong like in Egypt and they also control much of the economy.”

    Not close and no cigar.
    You need to cogitate some more as to why Turkey is used as example.
    Key words: NATO; joint exercises; “calvinist Islam”

  13. Laura Stuart June 29, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    So not matter how many times I deny the lie that I support NATO intervention I will not be believed – in fact I said that I supported the right of the people of Libya to make that decision which they did since they were being killed by Gaddafi. In Syria I also support the right of the people to oust a dictator. I have not called for NATO intervention.

    This whole situation is getting so out of hand with every post by Shia being aimed at discrediting activists and writers who are Sunni.

    No – Turkey is an example of a country that was ruled by a secular dictator who suppressed Islam and who until very very recently had the Military and the judiciary in control so that any government was subject to military coup as soon as they went against them. Obviously the M.B. have similar problems with a huge population to feed and a military bought and paid for by the USA.

    Why do so many posts and comments have this sectarian aspect now, it is just playing into the hands of the West. Adriana whilst you may revel in the role of the Queen of the comments on deLiberation I really don’t think you should be stirring up sectarianism or assuming that myself and others might be somehow a “little bit too thick” to know about such things as divide and rule. We are well aware thank you.

  14. Ariadna Theokopoulos June 29, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

    1. I did not say anyone is thick. I said to the author: ” Mr. Amayreh, to pour it on this thick you must think your readers.” So, reread and don’t misquote me.

    2. I cannot possibly see how I “stir up sectarianism.”
    I never made any statements about which sect are “deviationists,” and I don’t see sectarianism as being the root cause of the problems in the ME, only the cleverly used cat’s paw.
    You are the one who keeps differentiating between shia and muslims on what you call “theological grounds,” which is fine and dandy in theological debates but not so fine when the real enemy of all muslims is fanning those very same flames.

    3. “Why do so many posts and comments have this sectarian aspect now” is not a question that should be addressed to me but frankly to you, and it is indeed “playing into the hands of the West,” but that does not seem to bother you when you are doing it, only when the “deviationists” do it.

    4.” not matter how many times I deny the lie that I support NATO intervention I will not be believed. ”
    I believe you. I believe you are sincere when you say it.
    I also believe you are unable to see that your statement:
    “I said that I supported the right of the people of Libya to make that decision which they did since they were being killed by Gaddafi. In Syria I also support the right of the people to oust a dictator”
    contradicts IN EFFECT the first.

    This little personal jibe: “Adriana whilst you may revel in the role of the Queen of the comments on deLiberation” is–I like to think– beneath you. Perhaps I should take it as some sort of left-handed compliment. If so, a left-handed thank you.

  15. Laura Stuart June 29, 2012 at 6:04 pm #

    Take it which ever way you like it Adriana.

    It seems very strange to me when people who claim to believe in Human Rights and freedoms/democracy etc decide it is better for Libyans and Syrians to be murdered by their leaders than to have an uprising like everyone else has had. One would have to be very very bitter to not want to applaude the fact that an exprisoner is now running Egypt. What about Martin mcguiness shaking the Queen’s hand? Does it give hope for peace and reconcilliation or was that just another zionist plot perhaps?

    • Ariadna Theokopoulos June 29, 2012 at 6:49 pm #

      If you had said only this: “Take it which ever way you like it Adriana” you could have said you “quit while ahead.”
      What followed does not strengthen your claims at all.
      I cannot make any clearer than I did what I had to say so I will not repeat myself. Statements like “one would have to be very bitter” not to agree with you I find tedious.
