Egyptian Army and Muslim Brotherhood Join Forces


COMMENT: While the euro­zone debt cri­sis pro­pels Europe toward Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed fas­cism, the “Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Spring” seems poised to bring war and/or fas­cism (“cor­po­ratism”) to the Mid­dle East.

The Egypt­ian army and the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood have appar­ent­ly joined forces [1], amid reports that the Broth­er­hood con­tin­ues to agi­tate for war with Israel [2].

(The Broth­er­hood is an Islam­ic fas­cist [3] orga­ni­za­tion, allied with the Axis in World War II [4], man­i­fest­ing a “cor­po­ratist” eco­nom­ic agen­da [5], laud­ed by the World Bank [6] because of that cor­po­ratism and allied with CIA and oth­er West­ern intel­li­gence ser­vices. The Broth­er­hood is the par­ent orga­ni­za­tion of the Afghan muja­hadeen dur­ing the Afghan/Soviet war, Al Qae­da and Hamas–some of whose sol­diers are pic­tured above at right.)

As Egyp­tians queue up for an his­toric elec­tion, the army and the Broth­er­hood are work­ing in tan­dem, a devel­op­ment that bodes poor­ly for that coun­try’s future.


In the long For The Record [7] series cov­er­ing Wik­iLeaks, the Arab Spring and U.S. intel­li­gence sup­port for Broth­er­hood ascen­sion in the Mid­dle East, we exam­ined this com­plex devel­op­ment and fore­casts that the ulti­mate cul­mi­na­tion of these events would be nuclear war in the Mid­dle East, the exter­mi­na­tion of Israel, the destruc­tion of the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion and the demise of the Unit­ed States itself.

Note that the Egypt­ian army has col­lab­o­rat­ed with Islamists in attacks on the coun­try’s Chris­t­ian Cop­tic minor­i­ty, and that the army/Brotherhood alliance appar­ent­ly dates to last April.

“For­mer U.S. Ambas­sador Says Egypt­ian Mil­i­tary Secret­ly Sup­port­ing Mus­lim Broth­er­hood; Broth­er­hood Says No More Protests” [Huff­in­g­ton Post]; The Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Dai­ly Report; 11/23/2011. [8]

EXCERPT: . . . . Despite protes­ta­tions of its pur­port­ed polit­i­cal neu­tral­i­ty Egypt’s besieged mil­i­tary lead­er­ship has been secret­ly fun­nel­ing finan­cial, food, and secu­ri­ty sup­port to Egypt’s Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and its allied Salafist par­ties in the run up to next week’s par­lia­men­tary elec­tions.

The assis­tance takes the form of “walk around” mon­ey, cloth­ing and food give­aways secret­ly fun­neled to the cof­fers of the Brotherhood’s front par­ty — the Free­dom and Jus­tice Par­ty, the Con­struc­tion and Devel­op­ment Par­ty, as well as to allied Salafist Par­ties, includ­ing Al Nour, Al-Asalah, Al-Fadi­lah, Al Islah and oth­ers — in a bid to buy votes and pro­vide Islamist par­ties a mil­i­tary sup­port­ed upper hand in the upcom­ing par­lia­men­tary elec­tions.

The mil­i­tary lead­er­ship has not only chan­neled finan­cial sup­port to the Islamists, it has also secret­ly col­lab­o­rat­ed with Salafists who have attacked Copts through­out Egypt in a show of sup­port for more puni­tive dis­crim­i­na­to­ry acts against Egypt’s Cop­tic minor­i­ty to cur­ry fur­ther favor with Salafists. Hun­dreds of Copts were attacked by unknown assailants en route to Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Novem­ber 18th the sec­ond night of demon­stra­tions this month while secu­ri­ty forces stood by. This lat­est attack comes in the wake of October’s attack by the army which used live fire and drove mil­i­tary vehi­cles into a crowd of Copts protest­ing a rash of attacks on Copts and Cop­tic church­es, killing 25 inno­cent pro­tes­tors.

Accord­ing to infor­ma­tion obtained from a reli­able Euro­pean mil­i­tary intel­li­gence source with whom I met in Turkey a few days ago, an emis­sary of The Supreme Coun­cil of Armed Forces (SCAF) met secret­ly with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and oth­er Islamist ori­ent­ed polit­i­cal move­ments last April to estab­lish local polit­i­cal “action com­mit­tee” bank accounts to fun­nel an under­ground sup­ply chain of finan­cial and com­mod­i­ty sup­port to local Islamist polit­i­cal orga­ni­za­tions through­out Egypt out­side the pry­ing eyes of Cairo-based media. Hun­dreds of local Islamist polit­i­cal orga­ni­za­tion chap­ters through­out Egypt have been buy­ing votes cour­tesy of mil­i­tary pro­vid­ed finan­cial and food hand­outs. . . .
