Egypt: Arab Spring 2.0

66
The power of the Islamist "Brothers" in Egypt has come to an end. In the night from Wednesday to Thursday, the army dismissed Mohammed Mursi from the presidency and announced the suspension of the constitution adopted with him. The “spring” course of events, whatever one may say, was provoked by Mursi himself and his entourage. Instead of the promised democracy, he brought citizens obvious Islamism and autocracy. And, like other fanatical Islamists, he persisted in his delusions to the end. It should be noted, Comrade Mubarak, whom the “Arab Spring” dared in 2011, left the post voluntarily.




I remember last October to one note on "VO" o Mursi received a comment. The reader reproached me, that is, the author of the review, with excessive bias. The commentator expressed his point of view, while calling Mursi the Islamist "moderate." Why, they say, a note? Not to give birth to another article the next day, where to inform the world: “You see, what did the“ Arab spring ”inspired by America lead to?”

Well, here it is time to give birth to her.

Mursi from the very beginning did not seem to me "moderate." The transient career of the new “Pharaoh”, promoted from the Muslim Brotherhood, whose violent constitutional (or rather, unconstitutional) activity was extensively covered by “VO”, showed what this political character was aiming for - by the way, in 2012, it was really approved by Washington, who had anointed his kingdom

Since 4 July 2013, Mursi is no longer President, but Egypt is temporarily headed by the President of the Constitutional Court, Adly Mansur. And now it is possible to declare with one hundred percent conviction: “You see, what the“ Arab spring ”inspired by America led to!”

Mohammed Mursi was unable to even leave as comrade Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for three decades, did. Moreover, the Islamist loser attributed to Mubarak all his failures, and at the same time the misfortunes of the Egyptian people. The “past regime” was to blame for everything!

On July 3, the Egyptian president, now former, refused to leave his post and called on the army to return to his duties, reported ITAR-TASS. In a televised address to the nation, he said: "There are laws that guarantee my legitimacy and stay in office."

“I ask you, believe that Egypt needs time to cope with the legacy of the past, its corruption,” said Mursi. “Give us time to respond to all the challenges and problems that are nothing but the legacy of the past regime.”

“I have no choice but to continue to fulfill my duties,” the president added. He further emphasized: “I want to say to all citizens of the country, including the army and the police, there is no alternative to the rule of law; stories democratically elected president. ”

Then the speaker confirmed that he would fulfill his duties until the end: “If my blood needs my blood to save the legitimate government, then I am ready to pay this price.”

"Lenta.ru"referring to Reuters, she wrote that the unrest at Cairo University began just after Mursi had made an 45-minute appeal, in which she categorically refused to resign.

His speech was met with indignation. Opposition spokesman Khaled Dowd called the president’s words a declaration of civil war.

Immediately began to receive reports from civilian "fronts".

At least 23 people died and around 400 was injured during the unrest in Egypt. The largest demonstrations were held in Cairo, reported "Vesti".

Abdelfattah al-Sisi - the supreme commander, he is the Minister of Defense of Egypt, - said that "the military is ready to sacrifice themselves in the name of Egypt and its people in the fight against terrorists, extremists and ignoramuses." These words are present on the page of the armed forces of Egypt on the Facebook network, correspondent RIA "News" Nadim Zuaui. It is easy to understand who the military comrades called "ignoramuses" and "extremists."

For the military, it’s better to die than to see how “the Egyptian people are intimidated,” the statement said.

The leadership of the Egyptian armed forces made a plan for the transfer of power. As specified "Lenta.ru" With reference to the Reuters news agency, which has sources in the Defense Ministry, the army intended to dissolve a parliament dominated by supporters of an Islamist president and suspend the constitution. The leadership of the state should go to the transitional council, which will prepare amendments to the constitution and set a date for the election.

Mursi? He had no place in the plan.

On the eve of the coup, Hosni Mubarak nobly urged Mursi to follow his example, wrote "Lenta.ru" with reference to the television channel Al-Arabiya.

According to Mubarak, the scale of the protests against Mursi far exceeds what he himself had to face in 2011, so “in the name of the people of Egypt” he should leave his post. Mubarak recalled that two years earlier he had decided to give up power in order to prevent bloodshed.

Mursi, of course, did not obey. This act was quite in the spirit of all that he had done in Egypt: from writing the Pharaonic-Sharia constitution, dictated by the Muslim Brotherhood, to creating a new economic crisis in the country, in order to overcome which the Islamist president had to urgently sign up for a reception IMF. This is - not to mention the victims, which were accompanied by constant mass protests against the policies of the smug Pharaoh.

The deadline for the 48-hour ultimatum that Egyptian Defense Minister Abdel Fatah al-Sissi delivered on Monday to Mursi to resolve the political crisis expired Wednesday night. After the expiration of the time, Comrade Fattah al-Sissi announced the suspension of the constitution and the holding of early presidential elections.

“Our“ road map ”prescribes the suspension of the constitution, the swearing-in of the head of the Constitutional Court as the head of state, and the holding of early presidential elections,” he said. Interfax.

On Tahrir Square, this statement of the military was greeted with stormy glee. Mohammed ElBaradei, a prominent opposition spokesman in Egypt, said that the 2011 revolution had been “restarted.”

As for the Islamist who has been set aside, he finds the actions of the army a military coup. Now Mursi has moved his activities to Facebook. A statement by the presidential office on the official social networking site said: "I reject the statement of the military, which is a military coup." The representative of the Muslim Brotherhood, Jihad al-Haddad, also announced the coup.

Interfax also mentions the document that Mursi delivered a few minutes before the expiration of the ultimate 48-hour period. In it, he proposed the formation of a coalition government and the formation of a commission to amend the constitution.

However, we note, who will believe Mursi? He has already given one constitution to the country. She did not like the country. Moreover, the "coalition government" is not what the people are waiting for. People do not want to see Islamist in the presidential palace.

Despite the fact that Mursi managed to spoil relations even with Obama, the blame was powerful protests against the film “Innocence of Muslims”, whose members burned American flags, and threw an Islamist banner on the US embassy, ​​after which Obama decided to exclude Egypt from his “allies” Washington today objected to the non-democratic change of ruler in Cairo.

Early on the 4 of July, on the Independence Day of the USA, Barack Obama first of all declared that he was “deeply concerned” with the removal of Muhammad Mursi ( "Lenta.ru" with reference to "Reuters"). Mr. Obama, as if he had nothing to do in the morning, issued a written statement in which he expressed the hope that Egypt would return to civilian form of government and the government chosen during democratic elections as soon as possible. At the same time, the American president asked the Egyptian army not to arrest Mursi and his supporters, as well as to respect human rights. The President also made it clear that he had already instructed his intelligence agencies to assess the consequences of the resignation of Mursi and his subsequent influence on American policy.

The head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, General Martin Dempsey, said that the consequences of the July 3 events could be terribly difficult for Egypt. “There are laws that determine how we should act in such situations,” he said.

According to these laws, assistance to a country whose government was overthrown during a military coup or decree should be terminated. But the United States annually allocates Egypt 5,1 billion. Dollars.

As transmits RBC With reference to Al-Jazeera, Adly Mansour, chairman of the Constitutional Court, was appointed interim head of Egypt. Congratulations to Mansuru already sent the King of Saudi Arabia.

Army representatives said that all their decisions were made after consultation with leaders of public and religious organizations.

In addition to the formation of a temporary cabinet, the Egyptian military is going to hold early presidential and parliamentary elections. Their preparation will deal with a special commission. A new political structure will be created in the country - the Committee on Reconciliation. It will consist of representatives of all parties and movements of Egypt. He will work with youth movements.

In a televised address, the head of the Egyptian army named measures aimed at resolving the political crisis. They are quoted "BBC":

The constitution has been suspended. The main law of the country itself will be reviewed by a specially created committee.

State administration is temporarily assigned to the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court.

A provisional government of technocrats will be appointed and early presidential elections will be held.

Any illegal actions will be harshly suppressed by the forces of law and order.

The media will begin to act limited censorship.


Earlier, the military brought armored vehicles to the streets of Cairo. The army, as they say, protects all citizens "without distinction."

"BBC" reports that retired Mursi and high-ranking members of the Muslim Brotherhood movement are banned from leaving the country.

Different media, citing various sources, write that the Muslim Brotherhood announced the arrest by the military Mursi. The arrest of this - home. The state television channel “The Party of Freedom and Justice” (the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood) is supposedly disabled in Egypt. It is also known that the channel “Al-Jazeera” does not broadcast from Egypt. The latter is not at all surprising: Al-Jazeera supported the Islamist Mursi. There are reports of the arrest of producers and TV presenter. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Egypt allegedly arrests the owners of religious TV channels and is searching for the top of the Brothers.

So, whatever M. Mursi says and whatever his associates say there, in Egypt the army was the true bearer of the people's will (you can do without the word “democracy”). Elections by no means always and not everywhere lead to the high office of those people who express the aspirations of the main masses. And if Mr. Obama on a holiday criticizes what happened in Egypt, although on the night from 11 to 12 in February, 2011 with H. Clinton welcomed the Egyptian “spring”, it means that in Egypt it went smoothly.

The reason for the White House’s opposite reaction to events of the same type was that Mubarak was a “dictator”, and Mursi, with all his quirks and minuses, was a “democratically” elected president, to implement the overseas destabilization doctrine very appropriate. If Egypt lived relatively well under Mubarak, it was almost absolutely bad under Mursi. When will the inhabitant of the Oval Office comprehend that the people do not like living badly?

        US President Barack Obama declared his “deep concern” with Egyptian events, calling for early elections of the country's civilian leadership. Obama instructed his government to consider continuing US financial assistance to Egypt: such assistance cannot be paid to the country in which the coup d'etat took place.
        Turkey's painful reaction to Egypt coup
        According to the Turkish edition of Today`s Zaman, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called the removal of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi from power unacceptable and described the army's intervention as a "military coup." It should be noted that the US and EU refrained from using this word in connection with the Egyptian events.

        The power of the Islamist "Brothers" in Egypt has come to an end.

        It seems to me a premature statement. In general, the likelihood of another civil war is very high. There are already quite a few killed, the Islamists will not give up power just like that. Qatar and the Saudis have always been "on short" with the "Muslim brothers", and will not give up their own people just like that. In Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamadu Al Thani, who, among others, led the actions in Syria, is now in power, so the experience is to start "muddying the water", and then another bloodbath to arrange with him at least chew ass. Of course, the bell has already started ringing for Mursi, but the opposition started dancing on the square early.
        In general, democracy turned out to be interesting in Egypt, it turns out that the army at any time can send the president to fuck .. "Who doesn't like it? We don't give a fuck, we have a different position on this issue .."

          There is such garbage there that in the Mursi government there was a pro-Islamic majority, moreover, with "his" constitution, no one decree for him at all, read what I want and turn it over! The question is, what about the opposition in the government? Yes, for the "democratic" kind and nothing more. In Egypt, supporters and opponents of Mursi are approximately 50x50. It turns out that millions of residents belonging to the "secular half", and not the Islamic, would have to live as they were told. Among the military, there are many opponents of Mursi's policy, therefore, it is not bad, in my opinion, that such a "counterweight" as the army was found. Another nice thing is that the military did not declare themselves a government, but appointed a civilian and Mursi just under house arrest! And the fact that the broadcasting of Al Jazeera and Co. has stopped! Very competent! And then the amers would have shouted about a military coup, as now Murzik himself!

            There are few screams that this is again amer-bastards setting a new protege. As they shouted that Mursi, an Orthodox Islamist of the Muslim brothers clan, is a US protege.

            In general, this is positive. The Arab world does not want to live according to the Islamic laws of the Middle Ages. His steps are directed to the modern community. The Arab world is getting rid of the legacy of the caliphs and emirs in the form of kings, imams, autocracies and dictatorial regimes. Elected, parliamentary power is now being affirmed in Tunisia, Iraq, and Libya. The time will come to leave the stage and the kings of Saudi Arabia and the emir of Qatar and Bahrain.

            It is very encouraging that the largest Arab country, Egypt, does not want to live under the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood. And the fact that the army did not establish its dictatorship, as under Sadat and Mubarak, but from the very beginning gave power to civic committees that will prepare new Elections.

            And Assad two years ago had the opportunity to avoid a civil war by holding free elections, as the people demanded, but he began to shoot at his people. And he brought the country to a military confrontation, the devastation and flooding of Syria with all kinds of orthodox scumbags.

                And what do you attribute Kazakh to Arabs? And why do you think that if an Asian is a Muslim? Atheist I... And I do not equate any spirituality with any religion. In my opinion there are two things that separate the world, they are nationalism and religions. Every religion does not accept and condemns everything that is outside their horizons. Therefore, for centuries religions have been at enmity with each other. Crusades. Ghazavat wars. Therefore, until recently, Catholics Irish killed Irish Protestants and vice versa. Therefore, the Sunni Iraqis and the Shiite Iraqis are blowing up each other whenever possible. At least in the bazaar, at least in the mosque, at least in the toilet. (If you have a desire I can send you my essay, "The Triune Cathedral" is called). Nationalism artificially divides people-earthlings into separate communities. But this will pass with the development of education. A child is born without a nation, he is born as a MAN. Then he will become someone, depending on what language he will be taught.

Therefore, it is not known for long or not, but the first steps are absolutely right - the Islamist media are closed and their owners are arrested, the leaders of the Muslim brothers are being persecuted in the same way, it’s a pity they won’t get caught, wow. Mursi had to immediately draw up kitsch and at least cut off the Internet for him.

      In general, Egypt lived normally for 30 years in a martial law and will now completely independently go the familiar way if all sorts of Obama will not interfere much.

    Moreover, it was Mubarak who was the Islamist-loser who attributed all his failures, and along with the misfortunes of the Egyptian people. The "past regime" was to blame for everything!

    Well duck is always like that. True, even Mursi was in power for only a year. Whether it’s the case in the Russian Federation, for 22 years liberals and effective managers have been in power, and then the USSR is to blame, then Stalin.

    So, no matter what M. Mursi says and whatever his accomplices say, in Egypt the army turned out to be the true bearer of the people's will (you can do without the word “democracy”).

    Can. In the light of events over the last couple of decades, this word has become almost abusive.

    Well, my prediction came true. I didn’t leave voluntarily, blood was shed and will still be shed if the army does not take the situation under tight control. It’s not in vain that Mubarak drove the Muslim brothers under the rink. I knew what it was possible to come to give them will and power.

    Tahrir Square is not all of Egypt, and the Islamists in Egypt are quite enough so that they do not swallow it all in silence, but begin to pack it. In general, all this is very similar to the correction of the results of the Arab spring. Remember who the West used to move as the leader of the opposition - Mohammed Al-Baradei. Then no one took him seriously. The West miscalculated, as a result, the Islamists were in power. And then again the crowds, again the revolution - and again Al-Baradei flickers. Strange, don't you think? Qatar beat the United States in Egypt, now Qatar has been given in the nose and is playing back, but that's just not the fact that it will work out. But in the end that - after the change of Mubarak, everyone was foolish too, 2 years passed - the country ate almost all of the gold, there was almost no food left, there was a danger of hunger, there was no power again, there was no parliament, there was no one to raise the economy with. You can’t feed millions of people with 85 loans, and you need to give loans. What they are now happy about - I do not understand ...

    For some reason, the Arabs began to inspire respect in me, with their inevitability and desire to really defend themselves from Islamic-fanatical and democratic assaults. Syria has been standing for more than two years and is making progress. Egypt says no Islamization, while the army demonstrates a consciousness not characteristic of the Arab world. Consciousness, unity and the desire to resist from assaults and betrayal, they already outdid the people of Russia. IMHO. Although a couple of years ago the situation was exactly the opposite. And we both paid a democratic tribute to the states and we pay, as we passed laws written in the West, we accept and we don’t want to change anything

      Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi removed from power. This was announced in a televised address to the nation by the head of the Egyptian army, General Abdel Fattah Sisi. According to the BBC, the general said that Mursi was unable to meet the expectations of the Egyptian people. The constitution of the country is suspended. On Tahrir Square in Cairo, festivities continued throughout the night with dances and fireworks.
      Mursi is under arrest at a military base, his Muslim Brotherhood supporters said. According to some reports, his adviser Essam al-Haddad was taken into custody together with the ex-president. Earlier it was reported about the arrests of the head of the Freedom and Justice Party Saad al-Katatni, as well as the deputy head of the Muslim Brotherhood movement Rashad Bayumi. Arrest warrants have been issued for another 300 people.

        Without support from outside, the Muslim Brotherhood will quickly fizzle out. And whether Qatar will decide to support them is a big question! Firstly, the mutiny in Syria did not cost Qatar cheaply and there was no result, and secondly, Egypt could block the Suetz Canal for Qatari gas carriers and deprive Qatar of a solid source of income, and thirdly - Qatar has recently changed its leadership, and for a new (and not experienced) king, such a game with Egypt may be too difficult.

    I used to write in my comments that everything that happened in Egypt led to the fact that Mubarak did not carry out reforms at the time, that is, the agrarian country of which Egypt was was not put on the rails of industrialization.Now that agriculture has happened recently fell into decay. and there is no industrialization in the country (not industrial production, but what it is yesterday). What remains of Egypt is the Channel, the Tourism Industry and Gas. In fact, today there are budget revenues from the channel. But this is a minuscule for such a country. Last Bad years in the country, agriculture fell into disrepair, the population of agricultural areas rushed to the city. And there was nothing to be prepared for there. The lack of production played a cruel joke with Mubarak all the anger of the people poured out on him and his family. Here and all the flaws got out Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood societies. They promised heavenly life and eventually spent money from the treasury. They didn’t start the reforms that the state needed. They only sent the country on the path of radical Islam. Here, the society split and the people saw what all this led to. They didn’t start living better, there are fewer ships passing through the canal, locusts have eaten crops, and the government plays Islamic games.
    Those who worked or served in Egypt know that the elite of society is made up of the military, this is the most enlightened part of society since it did not come from the poor regions of the country, but most graduated from prestigious universities in the west. And my opinion is that the military will be able to restore order in the country. moreover, the people support them. Only a military dictatorship will be able to put in order the economy, boost the tourism industry, and drive into the corner all this pocket opposition.
    Of course, no one will return Mubarak, the country needs new programmatic leaders, but I hope that Egypt will finally rise from its knees, get out of the chaos that the Muslim brothers arranged, establish its relations with its neighbors, and finally become a guarantee of peace and stability in the Middle East region.

    State of emergency introduced in Sharm el-Sheikh

    The Egyptian army has introduced a state of emergency in the south of the Sinai Peninsula, where many famous resorts are located, Reuters reports citing Al Ahram.

    The reason for this decision was an attack by militants at an airport in the city of El Arish. The Third Army, stationed in South Sinai, has been put on alert and promises to stop extremist attacks.

    It is not yet known whether the militants who attacked the airport are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, whose leaders were detained in the July 3 military coup.

    It is also unclear how the state of emergency will affect the tourist area. In the province of South Sinai, there are such well-known resorts as Sharm el-Sheikh, Dahab, Taba.

        In April 1975, Mubarak was appointed Sadat as vice president of Egypt. Among the reasons for this increase, Mubarak’s weak political commitment, his impeccable reputation and popularity in the army were noted.
        October 6, 1981 during a military parade Sadat was killed by radical Islamistswho were unhappy with the conclusion of a peace treaty with Israel. Mubarak, who was next to Sadat during the assassination attempt, was wounded in the arm. After the assassination of Sadat, the speaker of the People’s Assembly, Sufi Abu Talib, became the interim president, but Mubarak, who was elected president on October 14, 1981, was the obvious heir to the presidency. after an emergency referendum in which 98,46 percent of voters supported Mubarak. Immediately after taking office, Mubarak promised to continue Sadat's policy and introduced a state of emergency in the country. On March 15, 1982, Mubarak signed the death penalty for six participants in the assassination attempt on Sadat.

      In these countries, the army traditionally has great authority among the people and the rulers have to reckon with this. In addition, in the history of modern Egypt there was a president (Muhammad Nagib) who very peculiarly reacted to an attempt to bribe him - he agreed to the conditions, but he arrested the courier with money. .. And then he made an appeal to the people, explained the situation, and said that a TV tower would be built for the money received in such a tricky way ... (It still stands in Cairo, and is called, accordingly, the CIA tower). So the army Egypt is familiar with the methods of the Americans and may well take under arrest the president if he suspects him of treason.
