Last week in Jerusalem, the Zionist entity’s prime minister, Benji Netanyahu, told ambassadors from EU countries: “I am very concerned over some of the voices we’ve been hearing from Egypt recently. I’m especially concerned over the current Egyptian foreign minster’s statements.”
I am not sure who Benji was lying about; former Egyptian FM Ahmed Aboul Gheit who had said in Beirut last year that his trip was not to relay messages “from the (Lebanon’s) enemy to a sister Arab state” – or the current FM Nabil al-Arabi, who did not make any such anti-Israel statement. Though some senior foreign ministry officials did call Zionist regime “an enemy”. Commenting on the possibility of economic ties with Tel Aviv, Egypt’s Finance Minister Samir Radwan did stress that Cairo did not need investments from “the enemy.”
The Zionist entity has already lost Turkey as its strategic muslim ally. If the current pro-USrael miltary junta holds fair democratic election – the supporters of the banned Islamic movement, Muslim Brotherhood, certainly will come out as the largest group in the new parliament as they did in 2005.
Franco Pagetti wrote in the Newsweek in February 2011: “Democracies do not emerge fully equipped from ordinary people’s heartfelt protestations. Democracies need honest legislators, professional judges, incorruptible civil servants, and unbiased public-opinion makers. Such institutions will not grow out of the cracked pavement of Tahrir Square alone”. One wonders which country he had in mind where such democratic system does exits – not in Israel, the US, Britain or India for sure.
Canada’s veteran war correspondent and author, Eric Margolis, in his latest article entitled Mubarakism still rules Egypt has tried to throw some iced water on Benji & Co’s itchy Zionist nerves.
“The fact remains, in spite of Mubarak’s fall, not much has changed in Egypt. The Old Guard of generals and bureaucrats still rule Egypt. An intensifying struggle goes on behind the scenes between the military and the fragmented democratic opposition. So far, the military retains an iron grip on Egypt in spite of noisy street demonstrations.
Muabarak is gone but Mubarakism still lives,” he wrote.
