Editor’s Note: Before you get indignant about the coup or the arrests, consider this:
The Obama/ Clinton regime supported the Morsi Muslim Brotherhood (that has been banned in Egypt for many years for good reason) under the “Arab Spring,”another Soros production and in all likelihood another “rigged”election that is claimed by the usual western Media propaganda suspects to be “democratic.” My these people get around!
Much like Daesh/ ISIS they were persecuting Christians and burning down their churches. They intended to destroy all Egyptian antiquities including the pyramids has they have done in Iraq and Syria, a treasure trove on which Egypt is reliant for their once thriving tourist industry. They wanted to start a war with Ethiopia under any pretext, Ethiopia is a predominantly Orthodox Christian country, Ethiopians would have been persecuted in the same way Syrians have been and as we see Daesh persecuting the people of Timbuktu and under Boko Haram persecuting Christians in Libya and Nigeria.
Morsi was going to use the Egyptian army to invade Syria and overthrow Assad. Instead he was overthrown by the Egyptian military in a coup. As one Egyptian remarked, all Egyptians have to do military training and all Egyptians are the military and the military is them. In effect Egyptians themselves took back their country from the Muslim Brotherhood.
EGYPTIANS PROTEST AGAINST MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD MORSI IN SUPPORT OF THE MILITARY COUP.
Egypt has arrested hundreds of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood movement over their alleged involvement in street protests against price hikes.
Egyptian officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that 229 people were detained from several provinces, including the capital, Cairo, Friday.
They are accused of responding to calls by the Brotherhood movement to stage a mass protest across the country against the deteriorating economic situation.
Cairo has been engaged in a crackdown on the opposition since democratically-elected President Mohamed Morsi, a senior Brotherhood leader, was ousted in July 2013 in a military coup.
The coup was led by the then head of the armed forces and incumbent President General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
The Egyptian courts have held mass trials for thousands of Muslim Brotherhood supporters and members since Sisi took power in June 2014.
The military-backed Cairo government has outlawed Brotherhood, Egypt’s oldest opposition movement which operated under numerous restrictions during the era of the country’s former dictator, Hosni Mubarak.
Rights groups say the army’s crackdown has led to the deaths of over 1,400 people and the arrest of 22,000 others, including some 200 people who have been sentenced to death in mass trials.
