In the first interview of his presidential campaign on Monday, he said: “It’s not me who finished the Muslim Brotherhood. You the Egyptians, are the ones, who finished it.”
Gen. Sisi banned the so-called “Islamist” Muslim Brotherhood organization last year. The presidential election set by Gen. Sisi are to be held on May 26-27, 2014. Sisi’s only opponent is a token secularist candidate, Hamdeen Sabbahi, an old puppet of Nasser. Sisi’s victory is already in the air.
It’s not the first time Muslim Brotherhood is banned by the Western poodles. In 1948, Egyptian prime minister Noqrashi Pasha banned Muslim Brotherhood for sending thousands of its members to fight Jewish terrorists in Palestine. Egypt’s military dictator, Col. Gamal Abdul Nasser banned the organization in 1954. After Nasser’s death, the next two military dictators Anwar Sadat and Hosni Mubarak also kept ban over Muslim Brotherhood as a political party, but allowed Ikhwans to contest parliamentary elections as independent candidates.
According to Dr. H.A. Hellyer, fellow at Jewish Brookings Institute (Al-Arabiya, May 6, 2014) the “revolutionary ideals of the 25th of January have been put into suspended animation – at least for the overwheming majority of the population.”
I bet the Zionist Jew Hellyer knows very well that the “revolutionary ideals of the 25th January” were pushed by the US State Department and the Israel’s advocacy groups, such as International Crisis Group, April 6 Youth Movement, Anti-Defamation League, American Jewish Congress, AIPAC, etc.
Ayesha Alam’s investigative article, entitled, ‘Ikhwan confronts el-Sisi and changing of the guard‘, is worth reading.
“Gen. el-Sisi is launching genocide against his own people, cleansing the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) with a vitriol that makes the Nasser-Sadat-Mubarak eras look like the rule of Cyrus the Lawgiver. Initially following the military coup, el-Sisi’s forces engaged in pitched battles with MB members in Cairo’s neighborhoods, bulldozing them and their families down in a haze of blood. It is estimated that the Egyptian military killed around 2,500 Egyptian civilians – mostly MB members – in the time following the first assault that was launched on August 14,” says Ayesha.
“In April 2014, el-Sisi made headlines by sentencing 529 members of the Muslim Brotherhood to death. Observers noted that the court barely spent one minute on each sentence, while the defendants’ families screamed outside. It is not simply the death sentences that attract attention as a remarkable act of political evil; it is the sheer barefacedness of the action: the kangaroo court passed the sentences just as el-Sisi announced himself as a candidate for Egypt’s presidential elections. In other words, it shows how confident el-Sisi has grown of the carte blanche he has received from the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf monarchies to dispose of what is perhaps the largest, and most established social organization in the Muslim world,” adds Ayesha.
The US’ reaction has also been rather theatrical. The US State Department issued a statement on behalf of Secretary of State John Kerry, condemning the sentences.
“Despite the iron fist wielded by Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, a new generation of game changers has emerged to rock the boat. As the cycle of resistance begins anew, a spark emerges in the darkness that is visibly overshadowing Egypt’s future,” she concluded.
