I would like very much that the Egyptian revolution be genuine. It probably is, in the sense that people who gather in central Cairo are young Egyptians desperate to have a job, some money in their pockets and some food in their stomach. They demand for democratic changes to be able to better their situation and have a life, finally. That’s great. My apprehensions remain on the aftermath of all this. The Muslim Brotherhood hasn’t dissolved into thin air since the beginning of this popular uprising. They kept themselves at a distance, more or less into passivity. Will they accept that a democratic government take control of Egypt if President Moubarak leaves now? Well, that remains to be seen. As far as I’m concerned, they haven’t abandonned the Jihadist and pro-Sharia agenda that they used to have so far. The way I see the Muslim Brotherhood, they are the equivalent of the CIA for the Muslim World. They infiltrate, analyse, study their opponents and with a strategy to defeat them. Is it possible that they are simply waiting in the dark, willingly using these democratic protesters to do the dirty job of ousting the dictator for them, in order to seize power after he has left the country? I think it is a distinct possibility.
Dave Emory in his last For the Record show FTR#734 refered to the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in the early years of the twentieth century. Effectively, a more moderate group, the Mensheviks leaded by Martov, was trying to bring about a revolution as well. Both groups, Bolsheviks and Mensheviks, were competing to do it and at first, the Mensheviks were the ones who succeeded to implement the first stages of the process. But in the end, the Bolsheviks, the more radicalized group of these two, violent and anti-liberal, probably better trained in propaganda and tactics, recuperated the movement and chased the Mensheviks from power. Many of them went into exile after this. The spectre of a new manifestation of this sociological drama is waving in the distance in the so-called Egyptian revolution. The Egyptian democrats, the equivalent of the Mensheviks in this case, those who believe in democracy and in the liberal system, might end up doing the dirty job for the Muslim Brotherhood, the equivalent of the Bolsheviks.
Some observers have made the case that foreign influence might be at work in both Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings. While German and Sweden nationals have been arrested recently in Tunisia with weapons, which is definitely curious and dubious, the Moubarak government itself is putting the blame for the uprising on western influence. Western journalists are even harassed and beaten sometimes by the angry mobs. So I think that, in order to have a real understanding of the situation, we have to reach out again and use the marvelous science of geo-politics. It comes down to this: what are the signs with which we can appreciate the context of the uprisings in terms of western foreign policy in the cases of Tunisia and Egypt? Here are three basic facts to take under consideration:
- Tunisia and Egypt already are non-Islamic states;
- Tunisia and Egypt are ‘friends’ with the western world and Israel;
- Egypt has signed a peace treaty with Israel.
Considering the possibility that pro-democratic forces in the western world could have manufactured or stimulated these protests, what are the odds that it is the case? What improvement would revolutions bring in Tunisia and Egypt if they already are friends of the western world and of Israel? What supplemental benefits would pro-democratic interests and players from the West receive from all this?
Considering now the possibility that fascist/reactionnary elements in the western world have been working in the shadows to foment these uprisings, now the possibility is much more distinct. If we take the same three elements concerning Tunisia and Egypt, you see that Islamists/Jihadists and their Fascist International sponsors have every interests to foment trouble in these countries favorable to the West and Israel. They would like very much indeed to seize power to be able to implement Islamic governments with Sharia as the governing Law. It is obvious because Islamists have a corporate fascism view of capitalism. Then, the Fascist International with their proxy warriors, the Islamists pro-Sharia fanatics, have all the reasons to try this. Especially at this point.
Besides a few authors such as John Loftus who have identified Muslim Brotherhood and nazi connections with regard to the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, some institutions have begun to do the same in an effort to mobilize the citizens of the ‘free’ world against a danger that is rising rapidly in the geo-political arena. In effect, the Center for Security Policy, a think tank based in the U.S., has produced a document this last fall titled: « Sharia: The Threat to America ». Although the document doesn’t venture to pinpoint the mistakes and errors of judgement that Westerners have commited in their war against communism, namely their use of not only nazi war criminals but fanatic Islamists as well to destabilize parts of the U.S.S.R. and China, it nevertheless identifies clearly the Muslim Brotherhood as being the center group that is doing the covert undermining and slow sabotaging of the liberal world here and abroad. This document of the Center For Security Policy exposes the connections between all Islamic groups and the way they coordinate their work in order to take over the ‘free’ world.
So the Islamists have been exposed in their attempt to co-opt the liberal world or social-democracy and transform it into a Sharia-based society. It is expected now that they will react swiftly and strongly and I suspect that is exactly what is going on in North Africa these days, still with the help and ‘encouragement’ from their Fascist International sponsors. But we will have to wait for the dust to settle in order to have a clearer view of the situation. The action is just beginning. Stay tuned.
