Hosni Mubarak is likely to be released from prison this week, his lawyers said, after corruption charges are dropped.

August 19, 2013
(Hosni Mubarak) is likely to be released from prison this week, attorneys for the former Egyptian president said Monday. Farid a-Dib, Mubarak’s chief attorney when he was sentenced to life in prison by a court after he was thrown out of office by the Egyptian Army in 2011. A-Dib said that the new government of Egypt had decided that there was no reason to keep Mubarak in prison after he was cleared of corruption charges. The New York Times on Monday quoted Egyptian security sources as confirming the story. It is not clear where the 85 year old Mubarak will go when he is released. According to Egyptian law, Mubarak should have been released months ago after he was given a retrial, with no new charges filed against him on charges that he deliberately caused the deaths of protestors against his presidency. The prosecution has postponed bringing Mubarak to trial on those charges, as it attempts to gather evidence, and last winter an Egyptian court ruled that he could be released until that case was ready. However, the court decided to keep Mubarak in prison after a new indictment was filed against him on corruption charges last April. Those charges have been dismissed, and as a result Mubarak is set to be released, a-Dib said. Mubarak is being held in a prison south of Cairo, ironically in a facility in which members of the Muslim Brotherhood who were officials in the government of Mohammed Morsi – Mubarak’s replacement – are also being held. Morsi himself is not being held at the facility, however.

US sending F-16s to Muslim Brotherhood

January 15, 2013

(EOZ)(Al Ahram) A consignment of F-16 jet fighters to Cairo from Washington during the next few weeks has stirred up yet another hornet’s nest in Egypt’s fraught political atmosphere. In the opinion of many observers, the controversy over the deal is a thoroughly political one, as the additional fighter planes will do little to alter strategic balances of power in the region. It is unlikely that similar arms deals during the Mubarak era would have aroused such an altercation. The new factor, of course, is the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power, which has worried political circles in both capitals.

While Israel will still hold a qualitative edge in air power, this upgrade of Egypt’s air force by the US at a time when Egypt’s leadership is still oscillating between acting responsibly and extremist Islamism seems very premature. It is effectively a US endorsement of Morsi, a man who only two years ago was shouting anti-semitic slogans.
The $213 million gift also includes 200 Abrams tanks, perfect for use at Tahrir Square.
Here is an (Arabic) video just made by an Egyptian contrasting Morsi’s seeming liberalism when talking to CNN and his anti-semitism when speaking in Arabic, saying that “we must teach our children to hate the Jews” (no translation yet, sorry):Ironically, this decision by the US to trust Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood comes right after the US-trained troops in Mali defected to Al Qaeda with their US-supplied guns and other equipment.


Where is Barack Hussein Obama?

December 12, 2012

America cannot serve two masters, she cannot keep downgrading Israel from a nation of freedom-loving people into a bargaining chip in order to satisfy any part of a political agenda that green lights the destruction of Israel.

By Stanley Zir, Never Again is Now

Although he has painted himself as a hero of freedom, in reality Obama’s foreign policy has enabled tyranny and terrorism to flourish. Perhaps he does not understand the following statements:

Fascism is the ultimate expression of absolute power; deception and the absence of accountability are its greatest allies. Since lies are the tools that fascists use to complete their circuitry of deceit, any statements issued from the leaders of these governments or their supporters can be never be believed or validated. The only thing that can be substantiated is the total absence of people’s inalienable rights.

Wake up America, the Muslim Brotherhood, a criminal enterprise that supports Hamas and the overthrow of Israel, is now your primary partner to broker peace in the Middle East. What happens when you do not challenge Obama’s foreign policy? You wave the white flag of surrender to Islam!

While Obama was traveling in Southeast Asia, half way around the globe, America‘s closest ally, Israel, was defending itself by launching an attack on Hamas.

Again‚ Obama waited before throwing Israel the proverbial crumb, “We support you all the way, ” all the way that is, until Israel launches a ground war, to finally vanquish an enemy that is determined to destroy the Jewish state.

Then Hilary Clinton flew in to broker a peace with Hamas and Israel through Mohammed Morsi.

Not one news agency at that time questioned the sanity of the Secretary of State promoting a peace agreement brokered with Mohammed Morsi, an enabler of Iran’s terrorist exploits against Israel and a champion of Hamas. On the contrary, the mainstream media praised Mrs. Clinton for achieving a cease fire agreement. “What agreement were the mainstream media so enamored with? One that would give Gaza open ports so terrorists can get more missiles in their quest to destroy Israel and provide Iran an advantage in her psychological war against the Jewish state. That, and the promise that Israel will not kill any more of their terrorist leaders. This equals suicide for Israel .

Lacking a historical overview, the Administration along with Congress, has long ignored a crucial fact concerning the reality of the enemy we face in our war on terrorism. The Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, both terrorist organizations, are Sunni, while the Iranian population is 92 percent Shi’ite. The Sunni and Shi‘ites constantly war against each other in the name of the superiority of their God, a God who they both worship through acts of treachery and murder.

Yet, they are able to unite, despite their religious fanatical differences, when it comes to the destruction Israel, a point that Washington refuses to concede.

Tragically, they have lost sight of the fact that it is Iran that is the proverbial Alpha male of the Islamic world. Iran not only continues to hold America hostage with a threat of an economic meltdown (a manufactured threat) if it doesn’t agree to the creation of a nuclear armed Iran, but many of Iran’s immediate neighbors in the Arab League are also petrified at the thought of Iran becoming a nuclear armed terrorist state.

Iran and Iran alone is the epicenter of the ideology of Islamic supremacism and Israel eradication, not the Muslim Brotherhood, Syria, not Afghanistan, Yemen, nor Al- Quaida and the rest.

Iran is the standard bearer for global sharia law advocacy. Her terrorist tentacles reach far beyond the Islamic world to South America, South Africa China, Korea, Russia, Europe, Africa, and the UN; all are now part and parcel of their war on America, Israel, and the West.

The fact is that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and their terrorist surrogates actively attack and kill American and Israeli citizens and soldiers around the world.

The bad news for Obama (and also for Israel and America), is that Egyptian President Morsi, who shares Iran’s determination to destroy Israel, has seized absolute power, dismissed the judiciary, and established a fascist Islamic constitution whose approval will be sought in a nationwide referendum. Unfortunately for the people of Egypt, the outcome has already been pre-determined by Morsi.

Where is Barack Hussein Obama, the hero who stood for freedom in Egypt and the Islamic World?

He said that Americans must respect the rights of the Islamic people and that their voices must be heard. Why is Obama hesitating? Why is he not asking Morsi, like Mubarak before him, to to step down? Isn’t there more than enough proof that Morsi is a dictator, or does Obama believe that the Muslim Brotherhood and their partner in crime, Ahmadinejad, can be honest brokers for peace in the Middle East?

But a larger question looms, where is the GOP, why are they not launching a national campaign to demand why Obama does not make his intentions known to the American people concerning Mohammed Morsi’s status.

If the leader of the free world does not emphatically declare what America stands against in all circumstances, then for what do we stand, and with whom? Certainly not those Egyptian people who are now again claiming they want to be a tyranny-free nation, not one that was hijacked by the Muslim Brotherhood though free elections.

Obama’s foreign policy follows a distinct pattern of behavior when dealing with the uprisings in the Islamic world. His commitment to giving support to those who are leading the charge, changes in direct proportion to those who are guaranteed to win.

In Egypt, it was only after Obama knew that Mubarak would fall, that Obama announced to the world he was calling upon the people of Egypt to overthrow their oppressor. In this case he was not willing to support the perceived victim until the outcome appeared guaranteed.

What he never committed to in the Arab Spring was a foreign policy that insists that a constitutional government be implemented that opposes tyranny, if they wish to continue to receive financial support even if it is not the will of the victors in a free election.

Obama manages to shuck his responsibility as the leader of the free world when it suits his purpose, proclaiming America will not interfere in the internal affairs of any nation, especially in the Islamic world. Ironically, now the people of Egypt are demanding that Morsi step down after free elections, but will Obama get involved as he did with Mubarak?

The protesters who have now taken to the streets against the Muslim Brotherhood may provide the ultimate solution against Islamic fascism, for they might be the first generation of Muslims to accept a guaranteed separation from a mosque/state tyrannical enclave through a democratic constitutional state mandate.

Will Egypt finally adopt the political ideology that America ‘s Founders designed that can end sectarian slaughter, by redirecting the people’s allegiance from religious fanaticism to one that protects everyone’s inalienable rights? This is the front line of defense that the Islamic world must adopt if they are to be free from tyranny’s hateful grip, and America ‘s Constitution fits the bill.

This is a chance that we must not squander and the GOP must take the lead, this is the opportunity for them to reestablish American’s identity as to why she is the nation among all nations that was created to bring about a peaceful co-existence among mankind.

The question becomes, how can the GOP support an American president who champions a foreign policy that aligns America with nations and political movements that are determined to eliminate our precious rights in Allah’s name?

Simply put, Obama paints America , the defender of freedom, as though she is the greatest offender. He treats Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood and the rest of these renegades as if they were the victims of America ’s aggression, as if they need some special consideration, as if invasion, conquest, and nation building with the global jihad are somehow a defensive posture, an appropriate response to America ‘s foreign policy.

And the Obama Doctrine, “Terrorists are R’ U.S. ” completely exemplifies this erroneous position. For it is a foreign policy that contends that America ’s greed, racism, and exploitation of the Islamic nations is responsible for their hatred against us, not Islam’s addiction to tyranny’s hateful edicts and the murder of millions of innocent people over the last 1300 years.

America cannot serve two masters, she cannot keep downgrading Israel from a nation of freedom-loving people into a bargaining chip in order to satisfy any part of a political agenda that green lights the destruction of Israel- in the hope of establishing a peaceful co-existence with the oil-rich tyrannical nations of the Arabian Peninsula. Yet, that is exactly what is being done. This is a policy that not only dooms Israel to extinction, but will lead to the destruction of the moral fiber that binds America to its own humanity.

The GOP must emphatically declare its independence from the dictates of Obama‘s foreign policies which now bind our nation to tyranny’s diabolical edicts. They must commit to defending our nation from enemies both foreign and domestic, but it seems they cannot walk and chew gum at the same time.

If Americans are joined at the hip with the Muslim Brotherhood, how can we stop Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who must not be given the opportunity to accomplish his unequivocally-announced and pursued goal: a nuclear armed terrorist state.

America needs a new guideline; she needs a new point of departure, one that once again honors her nation’s eternal stance against the advancement of global tyranny. She must immediately embark on this new path, for it guarantees America ’s victory over those who have compromised our core beliefs at home and abroad.

America needs a Victorious America party.

(Updated) Egyptian ex-president Mubarak clinically dead: sources

June 20, 2012

(Mubarak said to be in a coma, off life support | The Times of Israel)Security officials say Hosni Mubarak is in a coma but off of life support and his heart and other vital organs are functioning.

Overnight, state media reported that the 84-year old former president, who was ousted in last year’s uprising, suffered a stroke and was put on life support. He was later transferred to a military hospital from the Cairo prison hospital where he recently began serving a life sentence.

The security officials said Wednesday that a team of 15 doctors was supervising the condition of Mubarak, who needed help with his breathing.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Media_httpwwwnewyorke_rjrhh (Reuters) Hosni Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for three decades until overthrown by a revolution in the “Arab Spring” last year, was declared clinically dead by his doctors on Tuesday, the state news agency MENA said in a report confirmed by a hospital source.
Mubarak was 84 and had been sentenced to life in prison earlier this month.
“Former president Hosni Mubarak has clinically died following his arrival at Maadi military hospital on Tuesday evening,” MENA said, quoting medical sources.
“Mubarak’s heart stopped beating and was subjected to a defibrillator several times but did not respond.”

…As you know there are many kinds of dead if you are Egyptian you might suffer from being kind of dead, mostly dead… or really dead… or dead but you can still have sex… if you are an Egyptian Muslim woman

Israel beats Egypt to the punch on selling electricity to Europe

February 5, 2012

(Carl) A new Israeli electrical plant being built in Ashdod is to be used to export electricity to Europe via Cyprus and Crete – and the Egyptians are seething about it. Calling the project Israel’s “High Dam,” after Egypt’s major Nile dam and electrical power station, the reports note that the project will receive joint European-American funding. The project will both aid Israel in reducing its dependence on gas imports and allow the Jewish state to export electricity to Cyprus and Europe.

The Israel Electric Company (IEC) and Greece’s DEH Quantum Energy are expected to sign the MOU in a few weeks’ time. This will lead to a feasibility study, which will be followed – if all goes well – by ratification of the project by the Israeli and Cypriot governments, in the course of 2012.
The cable will be 270 km. long. Another cable will connect Cyprus and Crete, which is part of the Greek electricity grid. An MOU for the longer cable has already been signed between Greece and Cyprus.
According to the Egyptian newspaper Rose al-Youssef, both former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and businessman Hussein Salem, owner of the company in charge of exporting Egypt’s gas, who is currently a fugitive in Spain, knew about this project when they signed deals with the Israeli government.
The closeness of Israel to Cyprus and Greece helped make the High Dam project more feasible, since Israel will be linked to the Cypriot and Greek electricity networks with 53,000 kilometers of connections under the sea to European shores, and is later expected to extend for another 600 kilometers inside European territories.
The electricity generated by the High Dam will provide more than 10 European countries with an electric power estimated at 2,000 megawatts and will reach 4,000 megawatts by 2020.
Israel made information about the dam project available to the majority of European countries involved, but did not notify Egypt, Rose al-Youssef claimed.

Heh.


Hosni Mubarak: Egypt Prosecutors Seek Death Penalty

January 5, 2012
(Libra Bunda) BBC: Prosecutors at the trial of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak have demanded he be given the death penalty. Mr Mubarak is being tried in Cairo on charges of ordering the killing of protesters during unrest which led to his overthrow in February. “The law foresees the death penalty for premeditated murder,” prosecutor Mustafa Khater said, AFP reports.The demand also applies for former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly and six other former security chiefs. Mr Mubarak’s two sons, one-time heir apparent Gamal and Alaa, face corruption charges in the same trial.”How could the president of the republic not be aware of the demonstrations that broke out on January 25th?”, chief prosecutor Mustafa Suleiman asked, according to AFP. Mr Suleiman went on to argue that the then interior minister Habib el-Adly, who is also on trial, could “not have given the order to fire on demonstrators without having been instructed to do so by Mubarak.” »

It would be a poor precedent to execute Muburak. One, other dictators around the world would be less inclined to step down if they find out they will forever be accountable for their repressive and bloody actions. Two, Muburak as a former head of state (whether you liked the state or not was in a civil war against his own people. He did not attack another country at the time of his accusations and go after civilians). It would set a precedent of the death penalty for any country that had it’s leadership lose a civil war… even if the winning side was more bloody… but the world will read my blog and see I am a Jewish Zionist writing here and to the world Muburak must be punished for compromising with Jews (even though Mohammad did as well, but it isn’t my logic)
