We are all Tamarud (Rebels). By Dr. Ashraf Ramelah, Founder and President of The Voice of Copts
25 Jun 2013
Voice of the Copts invites all freedom lovers around the world to stand in solidarity with Egyptian freedom-fighters in their current struggle to take back Egypt and bring about their goal of democracy.
One year ago, the Muslim Brotherhood and Mr. Morsi stole from the Egyptian people an opportunity to draft foundational principles of liberty and human rights in a monumental turning point for their country after the fall of the Mubarak regime.
Egyptians living outside Egypt in the free world offer their moral support and prayers for the overthrow of this neo-Nazi regime backed by the Muslim Brotherhood. All others who enjoy freedom must now join them.
A second chance is needed for the Egyptian people who are on the front lines once again to defeat a backward government promoting a type of “freedom” and a type of “justice” unknown to the free world.
It has been a nightmare in Egypt -- one year’s advancement for Islamic supremacy as well as a deep deterioration of the country’s infrastructure. If this totalitarian system is allowed to take root here the remainder of the world faces a fiercer enemy, emboldened from a state dominated by Muslim Islamists strengthened by success and bent on spreading across the world.
History may take a turn for the better on June 30, 2013 if Tamarud freedom-fighters can bring about a victory to celebrate with the Egyptian people upon a Morsi resignation and a collapse of the Muslim Brotherhood. The free world praises their strong will and determination to risk life and limb in order to do so.
After sixty years of Islamic regimes suppressing and disenfranchising its own people, Egypt’s long awaited moment for freedom and peace could materialize now and Egypt become the vision and aspiration for the entire region and the world.
All political and diplomatic offices in the free world must now press the Morsi administration to step down in accordance with the will of the Egyptian people and avoid the potential bloodshed threatened by Morsi’s own followers.
