Junta Backed Down from Threats of Violence: “seditious and unpatriotic” to Ask About Morsi

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Supporters of the illegal coup have started attacking protesters in the two locations they have been staging their peaceful demonstrations. Press TV has a report with some video footage.

———–

After making several announcements on Sunday, warning of a final police crackdown on the pro-Morsi protesters, it seems the illegal junta in Egypt decided there were just too many protesters in the streets on Monday so they let the protests continue without disruption.

“Amid apparent division over whether and how to break up two protest camps full of supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi, Egypt‘s leaders have not yet carried out what rights advocates fear will be a violent crackdown.” CS Monitor

“Supporters of toppled President Mohammed Morsi increased the pressure on Egypt’s interim leadership by defiantly flooding into two protest camps Monday, prompting police to postpone moving against the 6-week-old sit-ins because they feared a “massacre.” AP

As I wrote yesterday, al Sisi’s threats on Sunday prompted a massive turnout at the two protest sites, bringing Egyptians from all political factions out in the thousands to stand beside the protesters who have been camped out in those locations since the illegal coup took place on July 3, 2013.

Though this is a major victory for the pro-democracy protesters, it may be short-lived with al Sisi issuing new threats.

Also, ominous statements from a source close to the Egyptian military seem to suggest that merely wondering aloud about the condition and location of Morsi is treason.

Yesterday’s victory by the protesters may be very short lived.

Is Morsi Already Dead? The Judiciary Extends his “Detention”

by Scott Creighton

Immediately upon the capture of Moammar Gadhafi, the most recent successful regime change operation from the Obama White House, Hillary Clinton gave the order to her destabilization terrorists to kill the man in order to ensure he never returns to power and to make an example of him to stubborn regimes across the world. This was done brutally and publicly.

Today, the Mubarak backing judiciary which suspended parliament back in Nov. when they were trying to finish the constitution, has decided to extend the detention of the elected president of Egypt for another 15 days.

As I said before, it’s more likely than not that Obama’s new puppet regime in Egypt has already murdered Morsi in order to make damn sure he is never reinstated.

The fact that ObamaGod wants Robert Ford to become our next ambassador to the country certainly doesn’t bode well for Egyptians or Morsi himself.

Ford’s specialty is helping dictatorial regimes set up death squads (Iraq) or running terrorist mercs in countries we need to have destabilized (Syria). He’s a disciple of one John Negroponte, the father of the Salvadorian Option and one of the most brutal and ruthless neo-liberal crusaders this country has ever produced.

So the question is: is Morsi already dead and the junta preparing for serious turmoil once the Egyptian people find out he was martyred?

In Spite of Threats of Violence from the Junta, The Resistance in Egypt Grows

by Scott Creighton

 

——-

“We reiterate our insistence on our demands, which is the return of full the legitimate president with his full powers, the constitution that the people approved, the Shura council; and an end to the coup d’etat,”

“We remind our sons and brothers from the great Egyptian army and the men of the ministry of interior not to attack their peaceful brothers or besiege them or shed their blood.”

National Alliance to Support Legitimacy

zSince yesterday, the press has been ominously warning about a pending military crackdown on protesters in Egypt who simply want their elected government and popularly approved constitution back. They want their country back in spite of all that’s happened since Western powers staged a military coup on behalf of multinational corporations and international banking i.e. the IMF.

The warnings went out yesterday and the people of Egypt started showing up by the thousands. Apparently killing protesters in Egypt isn’t such a good idea after all. You would have thought the neo-liberal forces would have figured that out two and a half years ago when they lost their last puppet dictator.

Neoliberal News of the Day – Dec. 5th, 2012

by Scott Creighton

Morsi supporters and people who actually have Egypt’s best interest in mind are driving out the state department funded “opposition” to the new constitution - “Mohamed Mohy, a pro-Mursi demonstrator who was filming the scene, said: “We are here to support our president and his decisions and save our country from traitors and agents.”

Meanwhile, one politician in Egypt suggests maybe they could “rewrite” some of those passages of the constitution that Hillary’s color revolution thugs take exception to.  Coincidentally, Hillary herself said the exact same thing today. “Vice President Mahmoud Mekky said amendments to disputed articles could be agreed with the opposition.” Yes, of course, a small minority of neoliberal supporters of the former dictator want a consensus, they want to write the constitution themselves, so of course, why not?

Jason Ditz of AntiWar is at it Again – Supporting State Department Destabilization Propaganda

by Scott Creighton

Egypt’s “new Pharaoh.” or Hillary’s Vengeful Scorn?

The MSM is reporting on the “massive uprising” taking place in Egypt in response to President Mohamed Morsi’s recent decrees. The problem is, the protests aren’t any more “massive” than the ones staged by the U.S. state department in Iran a few years ago or those in Russia last year. There’s a reason for that: the state department and Israel are angry at Morsi for mediating a quick ceasefire in Gaza and suddenly we have a handful of professional protesters in Tahrir pretending they are the same people who beat Mubarak.

In fact, elected President Morsi is moving to protect the remaining elected parliament that hasn’t been disbanded by the judiciary, attempting to protect the process of writing the new constitution which is being threatened by the judiciary, and planning to set up new trials for Mubarak and his high ranking aides. The judiciary is well understood to be packed with loyal Mubarak holdovers willing to do whatever they can to keep the status quo online in Egypt.

Jason Ditz is over at AntiWar doing his part to sell the state department sideshow to his readers calling it the start of the “next revolution”.

I’m sure Hillary and the IDF appreciate his efforts but you shouldn’t. Here’s what Hasbara Ditz get’s wrong or leaves out of the story entirely. It’s a substantial amount of information but rather hard to accidentally miss…

“Blue Bra Girl” Video: A Remarkable Story of Horror and Heroism

by Scott Creighton

A reader left a comment on a video posting of mine. His comment was pertaining to a different video, a viral video that shows the Egyptian military police attacking a group of protesters who were running away from the scene. The reader’s comment links back to his own website where he has posted an article suggested that the “Blue Bra Girl” video may have been staged because the man kicking the woman as she was down was wearing sneakers instead of the type of boots the other military police were wearing.

I decided to find the video again (the reader’s web article does not provide the video, just a still screen shot of the guy wearing sneakers) and see what there is to see in it.

I have to admit, I am very skeptical of any so-called “revolutions” these days especially in Egypt since their original revolution was hijacked by the military junta that’s now in place.

After watching the video it’s clear to me that what is shown in the video is very real and there is a rather remarkable untold story that unfolds in it involving a couple that was simply walking down the street when all of this occurred who may have in fact paid with their lives for attempting to come to the aid of the poor protester now known as “blue bra girl”

Bloodshed in Tahrir Square Again

by Scott Creighton

Bodies are literally piling up in Egypt again as protesters, angry about the direction the military junta is trying to take their country after the people overthrew the corrupt Mubarak regime, fought back against the military police who cleared Tahrir Square two nights ago using teargas and truncheons, burning tents and possessions of the protesters in their wake. The protesters came back yesterday and the battle was on. Two died yesterday and officially the number is up to 11 today for a total of 13 civilians killed in the protests by a government the US is still backing. Where are the calls for regime change like those from Libyan “rebels”, Syrian “activists”, and the Western politicians who support all of them?
