Some Thoughts on Egypt’s Military and Politics

Some thoughts regarding that article (Egypt’s military seeks future political role)

I think that the militarist rulers made a deal with Islamists, that they would release some of their prisoners, empower their voice, so that they would in return ensure that militarists keep being above the law, ever since 1952 coup d’etat.
I’d say, forget about freedom if militarists aren’t held accountable for their actions. Bastawisi’s suggestion won’t free us.
The militarists (or their endorsers) always propagate that they want a Turkish model of militarist intervention in civil life, while Turkey is moving towards restricting these militarist powers because of its apparent harm to civil life, here in Egypt they propagate that this would help civil life. But, there’s another thing, our militarist rulers are not even close to being secular ๐Ÿ˜€
“Any political role for the military will hurt democracy,” said Mustafa el-Naggar โ€”โ€” I totally agree.
Yes, uprising against Mubarak threatens the militarist rule and the regime since 1952.
Military’s intervention in economy hurts it so much. Because they are immuned against fair competition in the market.
Ever since Mubarak was ousted, the regime loyal media (including state newspapers like Ahram) kept on making propaganda for militarists and whitewashing their reputation and even for militarists involved in 1952 coup d’etat.
Lies: the military didn’t stand with the revolutionaries. Many things prove that, including the Camel Battle on the second of February, when it allowed thugs to attack and kill protestors. I think that the over 11000 prisoners who were arrested after 25 January (mostly starting of 28 January) up till now, were presented as thugs and framed-up charges for them, when in reality they were of revolutionaries. If that number were really thugs, how come they are still hired to attack opponents? Also, how come they (along with Islamists) do the job of thuggery, for example, against a symposium made in Embaba, against military trials for civilians.
That number of 11000 is close to the number of arrested Syrians ๐Ÿ™‚ Do I see a correlation? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Except that the Syrian regime didn’t pretend to stand with the revolutionaries.
Moreover, in Egypt, Maikel Nabil Sanad said it, as well as colonel Omar Afifi (living in exile in US) that the Egyptian army was commanded by the US that they shouldn’t use the American weapons in oppressing protesters because that would harm the American weaponry business.
“The junta is not different from Mubarak,” says another Tahrir banner.โ€”โ€”โ€” I totally agree, in fact, Mubarak was the one to appoint them, also they warmly greeted him in one of their statements (one of the very early statements 2nd, 3rd or 4th, I can’t remember).
I feel very scared after Omar Afifi, along with Al-Diyar newspaper and Al-Masreyeen said that the Egyptian army sent Sami Anan to US to take permission of them to be allowed to end the sit-in by force in Tahrir and other places. Especially because 23 July, the day of the coup d’etat, is near. Ruling militarists are concerned that it would be the end for their power. Similarly to the start of 25 January protests, when they were chosen to be at the date of the police holiday. US gave the green light to EgyArmy. :S

Response to: Anne Frank a โ€˜fake,โ€™ says โ€˜liberalโ€™ Egyptian leader

I made that article as a response to a Jerusalem Post article (Anne Frank a โ€˜fake,โ€™ says โ€˜liberalโ€™ Egyptian leader).

First, I object describing Wafd political party as influential. Second, those are the political parties which were allowed to survive in Mubarak era. To be able to work at Mubarak era you must be not influential. Third, it’s the first time for me to know about “Ahmed Ezz el-Arab”.
The stupid stories he was saying are those stories long propagated by Mubarak regime. His views are common because as I said, they were propagated in the media and the state-sponsored information during Mubarak era who some consider Mubarak as a friend of Israel and a preserver of peace!
Amr Bargisi claim about the vast majority of Egyptians isn’t true. There are many people, but definitely not the vast majority. Who is Amr Bargisi, anyway? Is he a famous person in order not to at least mention who is he? What was his stance on the 12 days of 25 January protests? Did he follow it? Did he see that it wasn’t the making of sectarian groups!
I also suspect the claim of powerfulness of Muslim Brotherhood. If it were true, why did 27 May big demonstration succeed while they kept on defaming it and who called for it as well as challenging their patriotism and honor and appeasing to the Supreme Council of Armed Forces calling it the Friday of subversion between the army and the people (the exact quote of militarists of SCAF!)
No political party in Egypt is influential and 25 January proved so, because none of them called for demonstrations and some of them (including Muslim Brotherhood) spoke against 25 January protests ๐Ÿ™‚
It’s not a surprise that a veteran is in favor of Islamism. Oh, did you think militarists (and SCAF) are for secularism? ๐Ÿ˜€ It was clear that SCAF and the Muslim Brotherhood made a deal, since the early days of the revolution, Muslim Brotherhood were the first to accept negotiations with Mubarak.
All of the minor Islamist demonstrations happening in Egypt, especially after 11 February, were 100% staged and allowed by SCAF and were never touched or harassed, while all the other demonstrations were harassed. Examples on Islamist demonstrations, as the Menya demonstration objection on a governor because he is Christian, demonstrating for a Camelia Zakher, a Christian who was made a fabricated picture for her, claiming that she converted to Islam, while she has said numerous times that she never converted to Islam, even in 2010 in an interview for her and another 2011 interview with her husband and son. I heard that she emigrated to Australia.
