article imageOp-Ed: The Muslim Brotherhood continues to deceive Egyptians

By Eliot Elwar     Dec 8, 2012 in World
The Muslim Brotherhood continues its deception efforts as Morsi engineers a train wreck in Egypt. Egyptian Muslims rush to approve new constitution, excluding Liberals and Christians. And analysts assess that a Muslim dictator could be emerging in Egypt.
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a Muslim Brotherhood member, fled the presidential palace in Cairo before he returned to face the huge opposition against his efforts to turn Egypt into a Sunni Muslim state. The Muslim Brotherhood, which has been playing on the sidelines of power since the 1920s, will go to any extreme to maintain its on grip power. The Muslim organization has sent out its thug teams to attack their secular and religious opponents in Tahrir Square near the presidential palace. These fascism tactics demonstrates that Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood members have no interest or desire to wield power for the benefit of the Egyptian people, but they are instead intent on using the country they dominate to create an Islamic utopia for the next 1000 years, according to the Jewish press.
Recently, Egyptian Muslims hurried to authorize a draft constitution for Egypt without any liberal and Christian member participation. They attempted to pre-empt a court ruling, which could dissolve their panel while further inflaming the conflict between the opposition forces and the Morsi led government. The move advances a charter with Islamic favoritism. Rights analysts believe this charter could give Muslim clerics control over legislation and bring restrictions on freedom of speech, women's rights, and other liberties, according to Vindy.com.
President Mohamed Mursi continues to seek ways to end Egypt's worst crisis since he took office. Cairo and other cities have been rocked by violent protests since late November, when Mursi promulgated a decree awarding himself sweeping powers that placed him above the Egyptian laws temporarily. This Egyptian upheaval following the fall of Hosni Mubarak in 2011, troubles the Western powers, in particular the United States, because they have given billions of dollars in military and other aid since Egypt made peace with Israel in 1979, according to South Bend Tribune.
Analysis
The Egyptian government encounters major outrage from the Egyptian people over President Morsi's power grab in late November. Morsi has not backed down because he believes that he needs to avoid judicial review before Mubarak-era judges block reforms. However, he stated that this is only a temporary decree lasting until the referendum on the new Egyptian constitution is established. After being hounded by thousands of protestors who have been held off by barbed wire and tanks, Morsi has called for dialogue. A few demonstrators have been killed and many more injured during the clashes between anti and pro-Morsi demonstrators.
Morsi’s hypocrisy was revealed when he allowed weapons for Hamas to cross Egypt's border into the Gaza Strip, while acting as a broker of the recent ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. Morsi sent medical supplies into Gaza, while Egyptian hospitals were unable to sufficiently treat severely injured Egyptian children. Morsi often rants on and on about Israel's actions, while his government supports terrorist groups in the Mideast. Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood frequently use deception:
First, Morsi allowed weapons into Gaza and encouraged Hamas; then, once the fighting began, he played the peacemaker. Before the last election that raised Morsi to the presidency, the group promised that if elected it would spend billions of dollars on repairing Egypt's damaged infrastructure as part of a "Renaissance Project." According to a few analysts, Egyptians should not believe the Muslim Brotherhood's promises. Following the election, the group said its promises were just an idea that needed further development. Second, during the election, Morsi also promised that he would pick a Coptic Christian as his vice president. He did not. And since becoming president, he has given many speeches about one almost every three days, mostly in an Islamic Mosques. Morsi publically declares reasonable treatment for non-Muslims, but shows no real effort to honor his words.
