20th August, 2013

In the immediate aftermath of the coup that deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, it looked as though the Muslim Brothers had decided to embrace all options, including violence, to regain their footing and demand Morsi’s reinstatement. In the heat of the moment, some Brotherhood members and their supporters waved flags associated with militant Islamist groups, such as al-Qaeda, and issued rampant threats against the deposed president’s opponents.

No US solution to quell chaos in Egypt, Syria

Posted by seumasach on August 20, 2013

“With regard to Syria, the US is yet to deliver on its promise to send weapons to Syrian rebels after the White House in June concluded that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government used chemical weapons.”

“Also limiting Washington’s options is the fact that Americans have no taste for overseas conflicts after a brutal war in Iraq and more than a decade in Afghanistan.”

29th July, 2013

De la Syrie à l’Égypte en passant par la Tunisie et la Libye, les peuples arabes se soulèvent contre la terreur des Frères musulmans et des autres mouvements islamistes extrémistes, qui ont volé leurs révolutions avec l’appuie de l’Occident et d’Israël et tentent d’étouffer leurs aspirations à coups de massacres, d’assassinats politiques, de violences physiques et de terrorisme intellectuel.

Brotherhood’s future in the region looks bleak

Posted by seumasach on August 4, 2013

A good analysis excepting only one thing: it is Obama who has lead the dismantling of the MB networks. This became clear when Kerry openly snubbed Morsi on his visit to Egypt. The US then arranged regime change in Qatar, the leading player behind the Arab Spring, and must be suspected of the same in Turkey and Egypt. Yes, the Arab Spring has gone into spectacular reverse but this is due to a no less spectacular policy shift in Washington.

Arab News

30th July, 2013

WHAT a difference a month makes! The biggest gainers from the Arab Spring were Islamist parties dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood. Tunisians, Libyans and Egyptians were broadly sympathetic to their decades-long struggle to join the political mainstream and were, to varying degrees, prepared to give them the opportunity to govern. Their opponents say they had their chance and they blew it. Simmering discontent came to a head in all three countries on June 30, 2012 when 33 million Egyptians called upon their military to rescue them from a government that failed to live up to its promises. That call was heeded on June 3 — and is now being echoed in Libya and Tunisia.
