THE EGYPTIAN UNREST: A SPECIAL REPORT

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak remains the lifeblood of the demonstrators, who still number in the tens of thousands in downtown Cairo and in other major cities, albeit on a lesser scale. After being overwhelmed in the Jan. 28 Day of Rage protests, Egypt’s internal security forces — with the anti-riot paramilitaries of the Central Security Forces (CSF) at the forefront — were glaringly absent from the streets Jan. 29. They were replaced with rows of tanks and armored personnel carriers carrying regular army soldiers. Unlike their CSF counterparts, the demonstrators demanding Mubarak’s exit from the political scene largely welcomed the soldiers. Despite Mubarak’s refusal to step down Jan. 28, the public’s positive perception of the military, seen as the only real gateway to a post-Mubarak Egypt, remained. It is unclear how long this perception will hold, especially as Egyptians are growing frustrated with the rising level of insecurity in the country and the army’s limits in patrolling the streets.

 

There is more to these demonstrations than meets the eye. The media will focus on the concept of reformers staging a revolution in the name of democracy and human rights. These may well have brought numerous demonstrators into the streets, but revolutions, including this one, are made up of many more actors than the liberal voices on Facebook and Twitter.After three decades of Mubarak rule, a window of opportunity has opened for various political forces — from the moderate to the extreme — that preferred to keep the spotlight on the liberal face of the demonstrations while they maneuver from behind. As the Iranian Revolution of 1979 taught, the ideology and composition of protesters can wind up having very little to do with the political forces that end up in power. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood (MB) understands well the concerns the United States, Israel and others share over a political vacuum in Cairo being filled by Islamists. The MB so far is proceeding cautiously, taking care to help sustain the demonstrations by relying on the MB’s well-established social services to provide food and aid to the protesters. It simultaneously is calling for elections that would politically enable the MB. With Egypt in a state of crisis and the armed forces stepping in to manage that crisis, however, elections are nowhere near assured. What is now in question is what groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and others are considering should they fear that their historic opportunity could be slipping.

RED ALERT: STRATFOR RED ALERT: HAMAS AND THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD


The following is a report from a STRATFOR source in Hamas. Hamas, which formed in Gaza as an outgrowth of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood (MB), has an interest in exaggerating its role and coordination with the MB in this crisis.

The following information has not been confirmed. Nonetheless, there is a great deal of concern building in Israel and the United States in particular over the role of the MB in the demonstrations and whether a political opening will be made for the Islamist organization in Egypt.


The Egyptian police are no longer patrolling the Rafah border crossing into Gaza. Hamas armed men are entering into Egypt and are closely collaborating with the MB. The MB has fully engaged itself in the demonstrations, and they are unsatisfied with the dismissal of the Cabinet. They are insisting on a new Cabinet that does not include members of the ruling National Democratic Party.

Security forces in plainclothes are engaged in destroying public property in order to give the impression that many protesters represent a public menace. The MB is meanwhile forming people’s committees to protect public property and also to coordinate demonstrators’ activities, including supplying them with food, beverages and first aid.

Islam the cult of love sharia death



By Daily Mail Reporter

Proof for the politically correct druids that call themselves leaders in the US that Islam is the Cult of Death. It isn’t a religion it’s a cult. Sharia must be codified, as crimes against humanity and for get the confusion that this is a First Amendment issue.  J.C.

  • TALIBAN SPOKESMAN: ‘Anyone who knows about Islam knows that stoning is in the Koran, and that it is Islamic law. There are people who call it inhuman – but in doing so they insult the Prophet. They want to bring foreign thinking to this country’

WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT

Horrific video footage has emerged of Taliban insurgents stoning a couple to death for alleged adultery in northern Afghanistan.

Hundreds of villagers can be seen on the video standing around as the woman, Siddqa, is buried up to her waist in a four foot hole in the ground.

Two mullahs pass sentence before the crowd begins to throw rocks at her head and body as she desperately tries to crawl free.

But the 19-year-old collapses to the ground, covered in blood – but miraculously still alive.

At this point a Taliban fighter shoots her three times in the head with an AK-47The crowd can be heard shouting allahu akbar as she is killed.

Her lover, Khayyam, is then marched in front of the crowd with his hands tied behind his back.

He is blindfolded with his own tunic and crouches down close to the ground as he tried to protect his body from the stones.

But he is battered to the floor by a barrage of rocks. He can be heard sobbing before eventually falling silent.

The stoning – the first to be documented on film since the Taliban were ousted from power – took place in the district of Dashte Archi, in Kunduz, last August.

Officials said that Siddqa had run away after being sold into an arranged marriage for $9,000 against her will.

She ran away to be with Khayyam, who was already married and had two children, and the pair eloped to Pakistan.

But it is understand that they returned to their home village after being reassured by leaders that they would be unharmed.

It was a terrible mistake. They were dragged from their families’ homes at 2am by Taliban fighters and then put before a kangaroo court before being executed.

The incident took place last October near the Afghan border with Tajikstan, a conservative district with a heavy extremist presence.

The area remains under Taliban control, but regional police have said those behind the stoning will be charged.

Police chief General Daoud Daoud told the BBC: ‘Special police investigators will be sent there, we will find them and they will be brought to justice.’

Most of the video has not been shown because it was too graphic.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid defended the stoning.

He told the BBC: ‘Anyone who knows about Islam knows that stoning is in the Koran, and that it is Islamic law.

‘There are people who call it inhuman – but in doing so they insult the Prophet. They want to bring foreign thinking to this country.’

Fla. Rep. West’s Anti-Islam Comments Ruffles Feathers

by AFRO Staff

Editorial Comment:  Congressman Allen West may very well be the smartest person in the entire US Congress when it comes to the evils of Sharia.  Political Correctness is not part of his game.  He calls it as he sees it, he has fought Islamic Jihadists up close and personal.  I’m offended that more members of congress don’t learn from him and make it impossible for Sharia law and Islam to gain any further foothold in America. J.C.

Tea-Party backed Congressman Allen West, R.-Fla., has stirred a bees nest with negative comments about Islam. West, appearing on the “Shalom Show,” told producer Richard Peritz that Islam was the “antithesis” of America’s founding principles.

At the outset of the 11-minute interview, Peritz asked West how he was going to deal with members of Congress he disagreed with, especially Rep. Keith Ellison, D.-Minn., who is a Muslim.

Southern California Mosque: Trojan Horse or House of Worship?

Imam Mahmoud Harmoush- Imam of proposed Mega Mosque
Mano Bakh- Former Muslim and former Iranian Naval Captain.
The Imam again uses taqiyya,  (Qur’an sanctioned lying) to change the subject, dodge the questions.

Listen Now

Asked five times imam of proposed Temecula, CA mosque refuses to call Hamas a terrorist organization

Mano Bakh

Mahmoud Harmoush

Note, in the broadcast with Mano Bakh he now says he doesn’t support Hamas, that is not the same as saying Hamas is a terrorist organization or that funding for his mosque comes from Hamas.

In short the listener is treated to a nice course of taqiyya……….

Listen carefully to Imam Mahmoud Harmoush, the truth lies in the opposite of what he says has just said in the discussion with Mano Bakh and Rick Amato.

Contact for Temecula City Council in Relation to Islamic Center

Asked five times imam of proposed Temecula, CA mosque refuses to call Hamas a terrorist organization

The tenor of today’s debate on mosque building in the United States  runs from the politically correct misbelief that some how this is a First Amendment issue to the correct assertion that mosques are funded in part by states and groups that support Islamic terror.

To be sure, this is an emotional issue, yet one that must concern all Americans.  Why? Because if those fronting for the mosques refuse to acknowledge that the majority are funded by groups like Hamas and the Islamic State Saudi Arabia.

How many Americans are aware that the stated goal of Islam is to worldwide domination?  The Quran and Sharia law suppress all dissent, and call for the destruction of all opposition to Islamic supremacy. To leave Islam, or even to criticize it, is punishable by death.
