The government of Egypt faces many internal and external intrigues because the reach of the Muslim Brotherhood is still potent. Indeed, America is still open to listening to the Muslim Brotherhood despite the destruction of many Coptic Christian churches by their supporters – and the murder of innocents. If the masses had not taken to the streets and General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi had not stood up to this tyrannical Muslim Brotherhood venture, then clearly this nation would have been taken back to “year zero.”
Alongside this, Christians faced becoming dhimmis and open to persecution at the drop of a hat; the Shia Muslim population would face more persecution; the shadows awaited women; modernization would become a back burner and the economy, judiciary and social structures faced the dark reality of the Muslim Brotherhood. Despite this, nations like America, Qatar and Turkey – alongside the safe haven of the United Kingdom – all played the Muslim Brotherhood card. Therefore, in the same week when many more people have been killed by Islamist militants in the Sinai region, the United States is once more listening to the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington.
The Investigate Project on Terrorism reports about the recent delegation that met in the corridors of power in Washington. This source states: “The delegation sought help in restoring former President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt. Morsi-era parliamentarians, government ministers and judges formed the Egyptian Revolutionary Council in Istanbul, Turkey last August with the aim of toppling Egypt’s military government. It is based in Geneva, Switzerland.”
Christians concerned by the role of America into the internal affairs of Egypt are once more alarmed by the intrigues of Washington. Michael Meunier, reports the Investigative Project on Terrorism, says: “The Brotherhood was behind violence that has swept Egypt since Morsi’s fall, Meunier told the IPT from Cairo. He noted that Coptic churches were burned by the Brotherhood’s supporters, and St. Mark Cathedral in Cairo was attacked by Islamists during Morsi’s tenure.”
Investigate Project on Terrorism further reports: “Meunier had terse words for the State Department, saying that meeting with this delegation furthers the perception that the U.S. was behind the Brotherhood’s rise to power and heightens tensions between Egyptians and Americans.”
In the same week that Muslim Brotherhood intrigues were given their voice once more in Washington, the nation of Egypt was hit by more terrorist attacks. This reality is galling for the people of Egypt because the current government of President el-Sisi needs breathing space in order to stabilize the nation state.
The BBC reports: “At least 26 people have been killed in a series of attacks by Islamist militants in the north of Egypt’s Sinai peninsula…A car bomb and mortars hit military targets in the North Sinai capital El-Arish, killing a number of soldiers…Other attacks took place in the nearby town of Sheik Zuwayid and the town of Rafah, bordering Gaza.”
Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, a militant Takfiri group that claims allegiance with ISIS (Islamic State), stated that it was responsible for the terrorist attacks. It must be equally stressed that ISIS and relations with Turkey are known because video images show military convoys of Turkey entering ISIS areas because of intrigues against Syria – and so forth. Therefore, with Erdogan and the government of Turkey being pro-Muslim Brotherhood – and with terrorist attacks increasing since the demise of Morsi – then clearly it all points to internal and external intrigues against the central government of el-Sisi.
The delegation, reports the Investigative Project on Terrorism, included “Abdul Mawgoud Dardery, an exiled Muslim Brotherhood member and Egyptian parliamentarian; and Mohammed Gamal Heshmat, an exiled member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s shura council and Egyptian parliamentarian.”
President el-Sisi needs to continue with bringing much needed stability to Egypt because many internal and external intrigues threaten the nation state. This reality means that internal threats from the Muslim Brotherhood must be clamped down because this movement seeks to utilize political discontent. Therefore, political leaders under the banner of socialism, liberalism and other areas must not play into the hands of the enemies of Egypt.
Indeed, one only needs to look at the meddling of outside nations alongside various militant Takfiri Islamist movements in Libya, Iraq, Syria, Yemen – and other nations – to see that Egypt needs political and economic stability. If this doesn’t materialize then the nation of Egypt will continue to be beholden to external threats, internal subversion from the Muslim Brotherhood and the naivety of well-meaning movements that will only lead to further instability.
Therefore, Egypt doesn’t need nations like America to give “a false Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece” a place to propagate against the nation of Egypt.
