Begin again Egypt?
Israel - Middle East
Friday, July 12, 2013
Alf Cengia

Egypt beleaguered and soon-to-be ex President Mohammed Morsi was never really a nice guy. At least he isn't if you are a Christian, a Jew or a non Islamist Muslim. He isn't the sort of guy I'd want my daughter to bring home as potential husband.

Yet, unlike the hapless Hosni Mubarak, the current White House administration quickly warmed up to Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood comrades. And for whatever it's worth or for whatever the reason, the Obama administration still wanted to have Morsi's back in the latest Middle-East-Arab-Spring saga:

"...we are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsi and suspend the Egyptian constitution. I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsi and his supporters."

Let's back up a bit and see how Morsi viewed his little world back in 2010. But let's first hear a Nursery Tale, Muslim Brotherhood style:

Morsi told his "dear brothers" that they mustn't forget to nurse their children on hatred towards Jews and Zionists and anyone who supports them. He stressed that their children must be nursed on hatred and that it must continue. Sort of like the Muslim Brotherhood version of Dr Seuss, so to speak.

That attitude directly parallels that of Hamas. For strictly educational purposes - you must understand - Hamas introduced military training into the curriculum of Gaza high schools. They removed sports programs because learning Kalashnikov rifle and grenade throwing skills are very time consuming.

Although, I guess if you really think about it - there is that sporting element to the process. You can kill two birds with one stone...and perhaps some Jews and Zionists along the way.

In contrast, the Obama administration is keen on domestic gun control. So, I wonder how that played out in conversations as they compared governing notes and traded civilian control hints with the Morsi Think Tank and the Hamas boys. Speaking of President Obama, in 2010, Morsi also stated:

“One American president after another — and most recently, that Obama — talks about American guarantees for the safety of the Zionists in Palestine. [Obama] was very clear when he uttered his empty words on the land of Egypt. He uttered many lies, of which he couldn’t have fulfilled a single word, even if he were sincere — which he is not."

And so, perhaps, we see why the Obama administration had to give all those insecure Muslim Brotherhood chaps special White House cuddles - to assure them that they were on the same page. Of course, the White House officially (and rightfully) disapproved of Morsi's call for the destruction of Israel, yet it still managed to send him F-16s and 200 Tanks.

The cozying got so warm that the White House also generously parted with a billion dollars for the Muslim Brotherhood to help them with the Syrian situation:

"The rationale behind the funding is that something must be done to counter the extremist rebel factions who have better-organized networks for providing political and humanitarian services to Syrians resisting the Assad regime."

Well that worked well. The Anti-Assad Rebels are at best a motley crew. Some of those people like butchering non-Muslims, and just about anyone else who disagrees with them.

Despite the White House's generosity, one anti-Assad spokesman felt compelled to complain that: “It is obvious that the real support is absent."

Yes, he really said that.

Recall that this was in the middle of those controversially austere sequester cuts, where the economic situation in America got so dire that the daily White House tours had to be cancelled. And that only goes to prove that when the going gets tough one can always count on one's true friends.

Oops, was that another cliché?

General intolerance towards Christians and anti-Israel hatred is widespread in Egypt and it isn't restricted to Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood. It appears to be a cultural problem fostered by Islam. The infamous Egyptian television pranks are one example of this:

"Two Egyptian actors, “pranked” by an Egyptian TV station over the weekend into thinking that they were being interviewed by Israeli TV, responded furiously onscreen. Both of them attacked a man they thought was the show’s Israeli producer, and one of them, Ayman Kandeel, smashed up the studio and slapped the female host he thought was Israeli so hard that she crumpled to the floor."

Egyptian actor Mayar Al-Beblawi was caught on film saying:

“In that country [Israel], they are all liars. You wouldn’t believe it. They are real liars. They keep whining all the time about the Holocaust, or whatever it’s called. With all the Palestinians that you have killed, you are still whining about the Holocaust and its lousy figures?!”

During a recent interview with Fox News, former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton identified several important problems that modern Egypt has to contend with.

He first made a point of noting that the Islam and Sharia Law were major factors causing internal division and intolerance. Then, further compounding the problem, he noted that the opposition to Morsi's regime is fractured, and that both the military and the Muslim Brotherhood are divided.

Finally, Bolton expressed concern that Egypt's economy might tank. He warned that another reason for the civil unrest has been the economy and now that unrest will deter tourism in the short run, further exacerbating the problem.

If Bolton is right, and I think he is, then there is no quick fix to the Egyptian problem. Even when Egypt elects a new leader, the internal squabbles will persist. If a strong leader can't be found in the short term then that will empower the sort of radical Islamist elements we've seen in Syria.

This scenario will further destabilize the Sinai Peninsula, and will have grave implications for Israel.
