What makes the current revolts so different, and so welcome, is that ordinary secular voices, repressed for so long by both religious and secular authorities, have finally broken out. This is also why Western governments have been equivocating over the protests — their real concern is not freedom but order. In the four countries that have so far seen mass protests — Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan and the Yemen — Western powers have long supported brutal regimes for the sake of political stability.

Now that those regimes, and that stability, are under threat, there is uncertainty and unease in Washington, London, Paris and Brussels. This is very interesting stuff Kenan. I saw reports on Al Jazeera of 34 Muslim Brotherhood prisoners being released — maybe this was intentional? There were only piles of stones and blackened marbles that had been hurled with slingshots.
Now everyone is trying to claim the mantle of truth. Army supporters see the Muslim Brotherhood and its followers as terrorists. The latter, in turn, see themselves as victims and martyrs for their elected president -- and even for democracy. Morsi set the tone in his last hours in office, saying that he would rather die than resign. Martyrdom is the weapon of the underdogs; instead of admitting defeat, they feel an obligation to continue fighting. Indeed, it now seems inconceivable for the Muslim Brotherhood to be involved in the political process.
And why should they, say many Brotherhood supporters, when the whole purpose of the coup was to exclude them from politics? In Iman Mosque, located in the Nasr City quarter of Cairo, where there were still bodies on Thursday -- cooled with blocks of ice and shrouded in air freshener to mask the odor of decomposition -- a boy named Hussam Nabil Abdullah was sitting in front of his father's body. In one of his rare interviews, Sissi recently told the Washington Post that he would "restore democracy.
How Egypt's strong man feels about democracy is revealed in his thesis at the US Army War College in Pennsylvania, where he spent nine months in As if anticipating the problems his government is now facing, the general wrote: "Simply changing the political systems from autocratic rule to democratic rule will not be enough to build a new democracy.

Not least because this slush fund is now contrary to America's own legislation.
However, central to the violence and instability in Egypt is the state of Israel who is lobbying hard for the US to continue to pay the Egyptian military junta. The United States has effectively bribed the Egyptian government, as it bribed former president, Hosni Mubarak, for many years in order that Egypt continues to subscribe to the agenda of the Israeli lobby in Washington to continue the siege of Gaza that has prevented the movement of essential supplies and still ensures that 1.
US 'aid', as demanded by Israel for both itself and Egypt is an anti-democratic tactic that enforces an American foreign policy strategy in the Middle East that is determined not by the American people but by an unelected lobby acting for a foreign state. Astonishingly there is apparently no requirement that either government account for the use of these massive sums. This is the truth. MBs were given the authority for a complete year and it turned out that they are enemies to Egyptian nation. We have civil president and government and population together with armed forces are fighting [ We have civil president and government and population together with armed forces are fighting against MBs terrorism supported by USA.
Unfortunately, the West did not call the coup what it was. Without evidence of wrongdoing by the Muslim Brotherhood, the army lacks legitimacy. Unfortunately, the recent church attacks demonstrate that the army also cannot provide [ Unfortunately, the recent church attacks demonstrate that the army also cannot provide security to Egypt's minorities. Only the MB can provide security and bread. If they want it, there will be civil war and the army will lose, because only have have the resources to leave Egypt. If the Muslim Brotherhood hadn't won the elections, none of this would be happening.
