Islamofascist Rule in Egypt

Morsi established tyranny.

by Stephen Lendman

Washington engineered Mubarak's ouster. He fell from grace. He became more liability than asset. 

For years, State Department and Pentagon officials wanted him out. He opposed Bush's 2003 Iraq war and other US policies. He had to go.

Washington engineered Egyptian uprisings. Spontaneity was created and manipulated. Arab Spring is Western terminology. It's yet to bloom.

It was first used in March 2005. It suggested a beneficial Iraq war spinoff. Washington deplores emerging democracies. It prioritizes unchallenged control.

Regional uprisings achieved nothing. Daily life reflects poverty, unemployment, and despotism. Tens of oppressed millions suffer. 

Conditions now are worse than earlier. People want jobs, decent pay, better services, ending corruption and repression. They want liberating democratic change. 

In February 2011, Mubarak was ousted. At the time, an article said hold the celebration. Egypt's struggle just began. Everything changed, stayed the same, and worsened.

Junta power and Muslim Brotherhood (MB) interests rule. Mohammed Morsi is their public face. Islamofacist rule is policy. 

In the 1920s, Britain established the MB's precursor, the Society of Propaganda and Guidance. It backed UK colonial rule. Post-WW II, it established close CIA ties.

It's pro-Western, pro-business, pro-privilege, pro-super wealth, pro-neoliberal, anti-progressive, anti-labor, anti-dissent, anti-freedom, and anti-government of, by, and for everyone equitably and fairly.

In June 2012, Morsi became Egypt's fifth president. On November 23, protests erupted nationwide. They came after his November 22 decree asserted dictatorial powers. 

He declared the right "to take any measures he sees fit in order to preserve and safeguard the revolution, national unity or national security."

Rescinding it made little difference. He claimed "all of its consequences remain in effect." He overstepped. Egyptians want him out.
