رأي وتحليل المحرر السياسي لما يجري في مصر
The territorial ambitions of the zionists are no secret as they have been published for at least 100 years, most of the political problems of the countries and nations near israel are derived from these ambitions and the machinations of the zionists and their allies perpetrated in the interest of fulfilling them. The whole bloody spectacle called the “Arab Spring” can be seen and explained in this context, and the events in Egypt during the last few years are no exception. Egypt has been subservient to western/zionist interests at least since the campaign of Napoleon, and this has been more obvious since the time of Nasser in the 1950s.
Egypt’s current and historical political weaknesses are well understood and exploited by the zionists. Egypt has a population of over 85 million according to current estimates published by the CIA World Factbook. While Egypt is a big country at about 1 million Km2, most of this surface is desert and the majority of the population lives in the Nile Delta and narrow valley of fertile earth on both sides of the Nile, which has a maximum width of perhaps no more than 100 Km. and far less in most parts. The narrow band of fertile terrain could perhaps sustain 30-40 million inhabitants but certainly not Egypt’s current population. The difference must be procured via commerce and other means. “Other means” are for example the sale of natural gas to israel at very disadvantageous conditions which was entered in by Mubarak, or the yearly military support money which comes from the USA in return for compliance with israel’s wishes. Part of this money goes towards paying salaries and importing food which is distributed to the poor.

A second weakness is Egypt’s main source of income, tourism, as it depends completely on a stable political situation. An undeniable power unto itself in Egypt is the Muslim Brotherhood, propagators of a radical interpretation of Islam which makes its many members readily exploitable when the religious sensibilities of this for the most part scantly educated population are inflamed. These sensibilities can be readily exploited simply by reminding the religious masses that women are not supposed to show skin in public, as western women in the resorts and beaches of the red sea do so often. Under such a cover of inflamed religiosity it becomes easy to enact an atrocity whereby “terrorists” execute 25 policemen.
Third, there is the matter of over-population, already mentioned: In 2008 wheat prices increased to a point where many Egyptians were unable to afford buying food, and riots ensued. This situation was promptly alleviated by increased imports of wheat and stabilization of the prices of basic supplies. Egypt’s ruling regime can not risk losing the US military aid, what explains why it does not retaliate when israelis shoot Egyptian soldiers across the border just for fun. It also explains why Egypt cooperates with westerners to keep Gaza in its condition of a concentration camp, why Egypt does not give entry visas to Palestinians, why Egypt keeps the fraudulent peace accord with israel upright or why Egypt entered into an enormously disadvantageous agreement over sale of natural gas to Israel despite all these issues immense impopularity with the Egyptian population: it is what the zionists want, and if the Israelis complain, Egypt risks losing the military aid from the USA, what would have the consequences of ousting the current westernized elite in power, major riots with several hundreds of thousands dead, and a hunger catastrophe of major proportions.
In the context of israeli interests, it is probably advantageous to have an Egypt as neighbor which has a regime strong enough to suppress the animosity felt by most of its population towards Israel but this state can only be seen as temporarily good. Taking in account that the USA and the EU will probably become insolvent very soon, the cheaper alternative would be to break up (balkanize) Egypt along geographic, social or religious lines. A first attempt to bring Egypt on a course more amenable to zionist wishes was the ouster of the Mubarak regime, which went in the wrong direction with the accession to power of the Muslim Brotherhood – this putsch was orchestrated in Washington, together with the atrocities in Tunisia, Libya and Syria, by the usual bunch of zionist war criminals at AEI, AIPAC and other such dumps. The latest takeover by the military, which had allowed the installation as vice-president of the untalented and universally reviled Al-Baradei, who fled at the first sign of danger, has equally been machinated in Washington that much is clear.
What is not yet clear is whose interests are being held up by General Al-Sisi and the people around him, but it is unlikely that Israel stands to lose much due to the blood bath they are putting in scene.
