Egypt’s military to Muslim Brotherhood government: You have 48 hours to meet the demands of the people or we will step in

Obama’s foreign policy has 48 hours to live. “Armed forces gives 48-hour ultimatum until take-over,” from Egypt Independent, July 1:

The Egyptian army threatened Monday to take over power if political forces failed to reach consensus over the future of the country.

A spokesperson for the General Command of the Armed Forces, speaking in an audio statement broadcast by state television, gave all political groups in Egypt a 48-hour grace period to respond to the demands of the people.

The army reiterated its “call that the demands of the people be met and gives [all parties] 48 hours, as a last chance, to take responsibility for the historic circumstances the country is going through,” the statement, read out on television, said.

“If the demands of the people are not met in this period…[the army] will announce a future roadmap and measures to oversee its implementation.”

The statement praised Sunday’s protests against the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood and President Mohamed Morsy.

On June 23, Defence Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said that the moral responsibility of the army towards the people compels it to intervene and prevent the country from sliding into a dark tunnel of conflict, internal strife, criminality and treason.

This responsibility demanded the army save Egypt from the possibility of becoming a failed state.

He has also called on all political forces to reach a formula of understanding and genuine reconciliation to protect Egypt and its people.

    I’ve said before many times here on JW; June 30, ARSH 2013 is the beginning of the end of the Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt, its birthplace, and soon…WORLDWIDE.
    This is a great victory for all freedom fighters.

    It’s ironic! A military doctrine dressed up as a religion is given an ultimatum by an army! Doesn’t get any better than that!

    The army is miscalculating. They are forgetting that the US government is supporting Morsi and especially the Hood (not just in Egypt but everywhere in the Middle East).

    Too bad the US military does give such an ultimatum to the Rasool O regime…

    But it does show who really is in charge in Egypt…

    Here is reality in any Muslim majority country: they’re ALWAYS going to have a dictatorship for a government. It’s going to be a Theocracy Dictatorship or it’s going to be a Military Dictatorship. Anything else will only be temporary and constantly be under siege by Islam — look at Turkey’s history.

    Thank God, a military junta is moving back into the driver’s seat in Egypt. Now I will turn my prayers to Bashar al-Assad: win, baby, win.

    This is the best an Infidel can hope for in Dar al-Islam.

    You do remember that Morsi was elected, don’t you? I mean, all this talk about Obama’s foreign policy as if the United States somehow installed Morsi over the heads of Tahrir Square.

    It is obviously a very divided society. It’s good to see the Muslim Brotherhood this unpopular, but, it’s hard to see what sort of national leader would be universally acceptable

    They are feeling their way in democracy. They are stuck with its imperfections and trying to see their way forward. It won’t be an easy way.

    The state of the economy in Egypt is grave. The country is literally broke and sits on the brink of mass starvation. That, of course, will be averted by right thinking mass charity operations run by, and funded by, Judeo-Christian Infidels in Europe and North America.

    To learn the details on Egypt’s economy, read the series of essays by Spengler (aka David P. Goldman) published over the last year at PJ Media and the Asia Times. Good stuff.

    Hi Miriam: the Al Nour Party for instance. There is a very old theory in the theory of political violence: the old radical party will be kicked off-stage by a more radical party. I learned that at the feet of Paul Wilkinson. Hamas’ rise was predicted by one of my lecturers who is now a professor in London.

    Nathanael: you have never lived in Egypt, otherwise you wouldn’t say that they are on their way to democracy. islam and democracy don’t go together. Egyptians are the most islamic people in the world.The Gulfies find them weird…

    “you have never lived in Egypt, otherwise you wouldn’t say that they are on their way to democracy. islam and democracy don’t go together. ”

    Nice to see a Jihad Watch commenter speaking elementary sense, for a change.

    Otherwise, I see the Persian flu strain has mutated, now more virulently optimistic than ever as the Egyptian flu. Signs & symptoms include: a scratchy throat, runny nose, starry eyes, rose-colored glasses, and hope for millions of Muslims to “reform”. Come to Hesperado’s Pharmacy for your annual flu shots…

    Morsi’s totalitarians aren’t going to get away with it without massacring tens of thousands…however, the Army won’t allow that.

    It looks like the Army is going to impose martial law now to establish stability. Probably, most Egyptians favor that. They like the Army.

    Sharia totalitarianism doesn’t work. Maybe the Egyptians are figuring that out. Hope so.

  13. says

    Egypt is 95% moslem. Democracy to Egyptians simply means “the will of the people” as against a dictatorship. This news isn’t necessarily good news. It is simply news.

    Half the bloody country is protesting/rioting. The Egyptian economy is in shatters. Agriculture is a mess. Egypt imports or has gifted massive amounts of wheat because they can’t feed themselves. When they are not protesting/rioting they are praying which leaves little time for work. Islam is not going away in Egypt anytime soon. The various factions are simply vying for the power to select the level of Islamic barbarity they wish to impose. The general hatred of Israel has ratcheted up under Morsi and the MoBro, not down.

    The Egyptian army senior cadre had grown old and complacent under Mubarak and was quietly and largely replaced by younger generals beholding to Morsi after Rasool Obama’s dumping of Mubarak. Rasool quickly followed this up with a gift of 200 Abraham tanks and sixteen f-16’s. The bigger game here is Rasool’s undermining of Israel. He hates Israel as much as he hates white America. To eliminate Israel he needs sunni islam rampant and dominant in the ME. This is why he is supporting the barbarous thugs fighting Assad in Syria. If Assad goes down all hell will break loose against Israel as these allahu akbar chanting animals turn their attention to Israel’s vulnerable borders. Rasool continues to exhort Israel to make peace with Hamas and Fatah while at the same time arming the very entities that will rip her apart.

    So it depends on where the army’s loyalties lie and I’m betting they are with Morsi. And how in God’s name did America go from being the protector of civilization in 2000 to a broken-down, third-world in the-making enabler of the vilest social cancer that has ever existed – islam? The mirage in the White House –Rasool Obama. Max.

    Prior to Islam, Egypt’s granaries fed the Roman Empire. After fourteen centuries of Islamic occupation, this rich land is an economic and social basket case. Not exactly progress is it?

    I am very concerned about the region’s future.

    Hmmmmmmmm…we’ll see. If that does happen, it will, no doubt, be described as an undemocratic military coup. That’s how Turkish military opposition to Erdogan’s Islamizing of the country has been characterized.

    ………………………………………

    The demands, one wonders, of *which* people? There are those who oppose the Muslim Brotherhood and the rest of the “Islamists”, no doubt”but there are also many pious Muslims who don’t believe that Morsi and the MB have been quick enough at imposing full Shari’ah and decaring Jihad against Israel.

    And how many Muslims even consider the threatened Copts to be “Egyptian people” at all?

  16. says

    Given the absence of any “good” solutions to the problem of Islam, the next best solution is at least to have Muslims fighting each other. The more they kill each other, destroy their economies, and keep from advancing, the less time, resources, and power they have to devote to oppressing minorities, expanding Islam and engaging in conflict with the West.

    So, I cheer the impending conflict and mayhem…

  17. says

    wishful thinking. I have worked many times with the Egyptian Army. They are monstrously incompetent but more importantly, they are like the rest of the country fully islamicised. The General Staff is a only a few people. We will see civil war and soon.

  18. says

    That would be great, if our problem was limited to the Muslim Brotherhood, and not to the Islam that all these protesting Muslims enable.

  19. says

    slight correction: the Barack Hussein Obama government is supporting the MB. Otherwise I agree: Obama will not support the few generals other than offering them asylum

  20. says

    Offer them asylum?! Never, asylum is not for the opponents of Islam.

    The moment the army moves against the Hood, the US will cut the aid. Check mate. The Hood is there to stay.

  21. says

    American foreign policy is not dictated by any incumbent President – it is formed by the CFR and other unelected bodies that represent vested interests. The sooner the people realize this, the sooner they will begin to get a grip on the situation. Obama did not just decide to support the MB and Sunni Islam – these decisions were made elsewhere and obviously they must benefit American corporate interests.

  22. says

    I disagree again 😉

    The MB wants to stay and create a worldwide caliphate with the help of the Obummer. But the Egyptian population isn’t so happy anymore with Morsi and neither are they with the MB. And what’s more important: they have islamic alternatives. These alternatives are even more extreme than the MB but not as well connected internationally.

    So it might be good for us in the West (CAIR will get one in the face) but it is bad news for Christian Egyptians.

    Egyptian is going in one direction: islam

  23. says

    true, the Egyptians like the army. I have just spoken to two friends, one Christian and one Muslim and both trust the army. I told both the same thing: you can hope all you want it won’t matter.

    I told them to by cans of food and gas bottles.

    The Egyptian central banks foreign currency reserves ran out six months ago. They only can pay their bills because the Europeans and Obamistas are sending hard cash.

  24. says

    “I am very concerned about the region’s future.”

    The region only had a future —

    a) before Muslims began their violent oppressive totalitarian occupation of it

    b) during the relatively brief window in historical time when the West managed various parts of it under Western Colonialism.

  25. says

    If ‘the West’ back when it had the power had had any sense and longterm – really longterm vision – this is what the Levant would look like now:

    there would be a heavily fortified (to the west, south and southeast) entirely Muslim-free and economically flourishing Nova Aegyptia comprising the Delta, the Suez and the Sinai, and populated entirely by Copts. All the Muslims from those parts would have been driven out.

    Israel (and there would have been no cowardly and despicable 1939 ‘White Paper’, so that many, many hundreds of thousands more Jews would have survived the Shoah, being free to flee to eretz Israel) would run from the Jordan river to the Mediterranean; and would not contain even one Arab Muslim, all those having been evicted – and the Temple Mount would be bare of buildings, open to the four winds of heaven, with nary a Muslim permitted to step foot on it.

    Next to Israel to the north would be an entirely Muslim-free Lebanon, populated by Maronite and Syrian Christians, and heavily fortified and resolutely defended on its eastern and northern approaches.

    The Assyrian Christians might have also been assisted to establish a defensible *Muslim-free* enclave with sea frontage and montane water source.

    And any Mohammedans who put a toe over the borders of any of these establishments would get slapped down not only by the residents but by ‘the West’.

    And let’s look a bit further afield at what an Islam-savvy process of DE-colonisation would have looked like.

    India at partition would have been *encouraged and assisted* to evict *all* the Muslims..including those from Kashmir.

    Indonesia would have been *prevented* from seizing West Papua and East Timor (indeed, all of Timor would have been liberated from Muslim rule).

    The majority-non-Muslim island of Borneo (the portions known as Sabah, Sarawak and Kalimantan) would have been kept out of the grasp of Muslim-dominated peninsular Malaysia and Muslim Java; they might be, instead, allied with Singapore).

    the southern half of Nigeria – pretty much entirely non-Muslim – would *not* have been spatchcocked together with the Muslim north; nor would the non-Muslim southern half of Sudan (which has now become South Sudan anyway, but after enduring near-genocide and terrible suffering) been forced into a destructive ‘marriage’ with the Muslim north.

    And if we want to go back further, like, to the 18th and early 19th century, *no* Western power should ever have allied itself with Muslim Turkey; the rebel dhimmis should have been backed to the hilt, from the beginning; and Christian – pre-Bolshevik Russia – should have been *assisted* to defeat Muslim Turkey and liberate her mother church.

    That’s just a few possible scenarios.

    I believe that LemonLime considers you and Salah and some others to be rather too optimistic”unrealistically so”when it comes to the likelihood of any large population of Muslims, in Iran or Egypt or any other place”rejecting Islam and Shari’ah in large numbers.

    Much as I respect you and Salah, I’m afraid I share his reservations.

    After all, this has never really happened before”not in the whole history of Islam.

    I’d love to see it”but I don’t believe it is anything we should count on.
