Can President el-Sissi Restore Calm To Egypt?

Posted June 8th, 2014 by Iron Mike

This morning Egypt has a new President – and vexing problems dating back thousands of years. The country is swarming with suicidal Islamists, and life is dirt cheap there.Abdel Fattah el-Sisi
Recent history does not bring reassurance. Egypt is the birthplace [cira 1926-8] of the Muslim Brotherhood – the granddaddy of all the Islamic terrorist groups. Egyptians saw the Morsi evil
They are determined to take the country back to the 8th or 9th Century – and with Obama’s help they damn near did!

It has never been an easy task ruling Egypt – just ask any dead pharaoh. During the 20th Century and into the 21st, – Egypt has had some seven kings or presidents. Some managed to die in bed…

Cairo the Arab Spring

There are two political forces contesting for the future of the country.

Modern / moderate Muslims [there are some] want a modern world with a modern economy – and jobs. Without jobs, Egypt’s young men cannot get married.

And the Muslim Brotherhood – which desires to take the country back to the 13th Century – or even to the 7th Century. These are the folks who want to kill anybody who is not Muslin, i.e. the Coptic Christians and any Jew in sight.

And narrowly-elected President Mohammed Morsi was a MB leader.

As soon as he was elected, MB mobs began attacking Coptic churches. The Obama Cartel – first under Clinton and then Kerry – openly supported him, – and said nothing of the violence against the Copts.

General Abdel Fattah el-Sissi and Morsi

General – now President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, tried to work with Morsi, – but saw his extremist views and disregard of human rights as a threat to Modern Egypt. Tossing him in jail ~ probably ~ violated the law, but el-Sisi clearly represents the majority opinion in Egypt – and he appears ready to end the violence.

If nothing else, he kept the Army under control for the four difficult years following the toppling of Mubarak.

I want to tell you that, when the army of Egypt came down the streets, came to protect you,  and stayed for 18 months,  none of the soldiers harmed you.

Our hands must be cut if they would harm you.  I am repeating this for you to know,  during those 18 months, there were 150,000 soldier in the streets.

It means for 500 days with 150,000 soldier in the street there were 7.5 million possibilities, we were struggling not to harm any Egyptian!

Obama Support of Morsi cost US Friends

His great task now will be to keep the nation stable and peaceful enough that outsiders will risk setting up manufacturing businesses – which will bring JOBS!

He will need vigilant and faithful guards! Few Egyptian rulers have ever died in their sleep.

    Our dictator will do nothing about their dictator.

    There is nothing like losing your freedom and being ruled by Muslim Brotherhood terrorists to wake a population up to the reality that they are evil. No longer will Egyptians romanticize about the Muslim Brotherhood. Rule of law protection is important, as is economic stability.

    Will it take a dictator to fight the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt? All wars need strong leadership, so probably yes. It will take another new generation before the Muslim Brotherhood can worm its way back into contention for Egyptian power.
