Saudi, Israeli And American Conspiracy: Overthrew Morsi’s Elected Government: They wanted a Mubarak type secular client state
Muhammad Morsi, the first ever elected president in a historic free and fair elections in Egypt which was ruled by the military dictators for more than six decades, was over thrown in a military coup on 3 Wednesday July 2013.
The army also suspended the constitution, installed a puppet regime, dispatched troops, clamped down on the media, closed down television stations including the Arabic unit of Al Jazeera, beaten, detained and threatened journalists and began arresting and locking up hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood members including its leadership which supported Morsi.
This happened exactly a year after Morsi assumed office- dashing all dreams of democracy in Egypt. According to sources in Cairo Saudi Arabia, Israel and America jointly plotted and used Egypt’s armed forces to overthrow Morsi’s pro Islamic government and democracy.
The demonstrations against Morsi’s government were entirely organized and orchestrated by the armed forces and the three plotters-Saudi Arabia, Israel and America- poured billions of dollars to ensure its success.
Muslims worldwide remain deeply shocked at the treacherous Saudi involvement in overthrowing Islamic government in Egypt.
Within twenty four hours the armed forces reestablished their police state.
Plot to crush the democracy movement was not something unexpected. Conspiracy has been set in motion the day Morsi was elected to power. Morsi’s had only one disqualification and that was Muslim Brotherhood’s support to him.
He tried to assert the rights and dignity of Egyptian people. This is something the forces which flourished under the disgraced and overthrown dictator Hosni Mubarak, described by blind Egyptian clergy Sheikh Abdurrahman as the obedient dog of the West, was not worried about. They were all out to take back the power by hook or crook to restore their privileges.
Morsi had many powerful local, regional and international enemies. For example within Egypt those who flourished under Hosni Mubarak, hostile state sector and government apparatus did not support to Morsi’s regime. On top of all were the armed forces, best beneficiaries of the annual 1.5 billion dollar handouts from US as reward for turning a blind eye to Israel’s conspiracies against the region to establish a greater Israel.
Equally keen to topple Morsi’s government was the country’s Coptic Christian population who came out en bloc to participate in the anti Morsi’ demonstration.
In the region Saudi Arabia, the most oppressive regime in this planet and often known as the American –Zionist wolf in Islamic clothing, was all out to destroy Morsi’ government as it was both democratic and Islamic oriented. Saudi regime which collaborates with US led European wars against Islam and Muslims had been very active in plotting to overthrow Morsi’s government.
With Saudi regime giving the lead its tails- oil rich Gulf countries, except Qatar, ruled by autocratic tribal dictators depending on US for their political survival- also became party to this conspiracy as they were all alarmed by the rise of democracy and Islam in Egypt .Most countries in the region ruled by scoundrels installed in power and protected by US and Europe too were alarmed at the rise of democracy and Islam.
In the international scene the US which leads the West in its campaign against Islam and Muslims worldwide cannot tolerate Islam raising its head within the democratic framework in Egypt. The first US reaction, within 24 hours after overthrowing democratically elected government, was to review this aid package.
On top of all Israel, the sole source of instability in the entire region, wanted Morsi’s government crushed to establish a client state.
In the midst there were numerous reports emerged of conspiracy to topple Morsi’s regime since early this year. For example an article on Wednesday 13 February 2013 in the “Socialist Action” by Paul Roberts under the headline” Israel, America and Saudi Arabia potting to over throw President Morsi” had this to state;
Imperialism and Israel have never reconciled themselves to the 2011 overthrow of their client Mubarakist regime in Egypt. Israel and the US perfectly understand that not only is Egypt the most populous Arab state but it is the decisive one from the point of view of any military confrontation with the Zionist state.
The Saudi Arabian dictatorship, concerned above all with its own survival, is terrified by any unrest in the Arab world and looks to the US and Israel as the only reliable pillars to support it. None of them consider the moderate Muslim Brotherhood dominated presidency of Mohamed Morsi radical. But nothing other than the purest of client regimes in Egypt is acceptable to the US, Israel or Saudi Arabia. They are therefore determined to restore a Mubarakist regime, without the former dictator, in Egypt.
This is the background to the recent disorder in Egypt, where violent demonstrations became order of the day. It is clear that Egypt’s security forces, which are still dominated by supporters of Mubarakism, stood aside in a number of these violent attacks. Armed protestors were allowed to rampage and create chaos.
The clear aim is to create conditions in which the army and security forces can carry out a coup d’etat utilizing the claim that the country is descending into chaos and therefore they have no option than to step in to ‘save the country’.
This goal is now beginning to be made explicit. The week before last the Army warned it may seize political control. Raising the need to restore order, its chief, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who is also Defence Minister, pronounced that ‘the political strife is pushing the state to the brink of collapse.’
The background to these events is Egypt’s steadily worsening economic situation and slide towards open financial crisis.
Israel, Saudi Arabia and US
Saudi Arabia sits on immense reserves from its oil revenues, which last year left its government with a budget surplus of $102bn. A fraction of this would halt the Egyptian crisis, but it is not on offer. In short those who want Egypt’s regime changed back are weakening its government by holding back the funds it needs.
The goals of Israel, the US and Saudi Arabia are clear. Whatever its moderation the Muslim Brotherhood Presidency has weakened the power of the US, Israel, Saudi axis in the region.
Whilst President Morsi does not intend to overturn the fundamentals of the Israel-Egypt Treaty, he did constrain Israel’s recent assault on Gaza and has helped to strengthen Hamas.Morsi’s discussions with China and the rapprochement with Iran, both of which differ from the pure clientalism of Mubarak, are not desirable for imperialism or Israel.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s advance in the region has also bolstered opposition movements in the Gulf States, a process the Saudi monarchy wants to reverse.
Muslim Brotherhood government
The election of President Morsi last June, decisively defeating the former regime candidate, naturally led to imperialism seeking ways to influence the Muslim Brotherhood – which imperialism perfectly understands is not a radical anti-imperialist force. But this is purely an enforced tactical shift. Nothing other than a pure client state is strategically acceptable for imperialism in Egypt.
Hence the need to promote economic and political chaos to prepare better conditions for a coup.
Of course the Muslim Brotherhood, having no solution to the country’s economic crisis, also permits the economic chaos to deepen. Without financial support from either imperialism or Saudi Arabia, solving the economic situation would require measures going against significant capitalist interests. As the Brotherhood itself is allied to sections of Egyptian capital, it is not even considering such steps.
Therefore discontent has been spreading. Since last autumn waves of protest have been escalating, and these followed on from a summer strike wave. This discontent will deepen as living standards continue to decline.
The reality of Egyptian ‘secularism’
When President Morsi issued the constitutional decree granting himself powers to overrule the Mubarakist judiciary last November, followed by the constitutional referendum, pro-imperialist forces took advantage of the political confusion on the issues to bring some left forces in Egypt under their political leadership.
Mubarak-era minister Amr Moussa and the pro-Western Mohamed El Baradei used the banner of ‘secularism’ to bring ‘left’ nationalist Hamdeen Sabahi into a ‘National Salvation Front’ to oppose Morsi. They forced Morsi to retreat from his constitutional decree and have organised the protests demanding Morsi hand over power.
As the Mubarakists well understand that the only force strong enough to take over from Morsi at present is the army. The NSF strategy is to create disorder and prepare conditions for a coup. In these preparations for a coup Israel, Saudi Arabia and US will doubtless not only be objectively coordinating with the Mubarakists but also helping guide their actions.
There are still formidable obstacles for imperialism and its clients in Egypt. The memory of the revolution, and of the craven and vile dictatorship of Mubarak is recent, the results of the referendum show forces opposed to Mubarakism still have a significant majority.
But there should be no illusions. Israel, the US, and Saudi Arabia are attempting to prepare the conditions for a Mubarakist coup d’etat in Egypt.
As predicted six months ago by Paul Roberts President Morsi’s regime was overthrown under the evil Saudi-Israeli-American agenda .Though few millions demonstrated to overthrow President Morsi still more than two third of the population did not participate in these anti Morsi demonstrations.
Egypt is a divided nation today. Will the Saudi, Israeli American plotters turn Egypt into another Syria as part of their global agenda?
