America's entanglement with Israel

Who’s Afraid of the Muslim Brotherhood?

The Passionate Attachment
June 24, 2012

Apparently not Washington. Ahram Online reports on a press conference held by Egyptian secular and liberal parties on Saturday. Of particular interest are the remarks made by Osama Ghazali Harb, co-founder of Democratic Front Party:

Several speakers at the press conference further condemned what they believe to be US intervention in Egypt’s domestic affairs. Harb claimed the US was pressuring SCAF to hand over power to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“We refuse that the reason someone wins is because he is backed by the Americans,” said Harb demanding that the Brotherhood should refuse US intervention.

While most observers will either ignore or dismiss Harb’s claim, readers of The Passionate Attachment will not be surprised to hear that Washington is backing the Arab Spring-facilitated Islamist takeover of Egypt.

UPDATE: Senator Lieberman and Senator McCain’s statement on Egypt suggests that Tel Aviv also favours an end to military rule:

“In the days and weeks ahead, we believe it is critical for Egypt’s democratic transition to continue moving forward – including restoring legislative power to an elected parliament and the drafting of a constitution that guarantees the rights of all and empowers an elected civilian government.”

  1. It’s clear to anyone the Islamist threat BS coming from Israel will give them justification to take back Sinai. And the west thanks to its own Islamophobia will give their blessing to kill.
