Egyptians Escalate Movement against Israeli Embassy, Detain Officials

Egyptian protestors attacked and invaded the Israeli embassy in Cairo Friday night, took off the Israeli flag and raised the Egyptian flag instead, and tossed official papers and documents, including “confidential” ones, through the windows into the massive crowds rallying near the building.

The protestors were able to accomplish this step after having destroyed a wall built around the building of the embassy.

After that, they surrounded and detained six of the embassy security men, who were saved by the Egyptian commandos.

18 people were martyred and 450 others were injured during the protests after the Egyptian police confronted and attacked the protestors' movement, and used tear bombs to separate them.

Egyptian Interior Minister declared a state of high alert, and cancelled all police leave, while Prime Minister Essam Sharaf called for an emergency cabinet meeting Saturday.

The official Egyptian News Agency Al-Sharq Al-Awsat reported that the protestors successfully took control over “confidential” documents that belong to the Israeli apparatuses, and claimed that the “documents included letters from Israeli employees to their Egyptian counterparts written in Arabic but have Israeli stamps.”

One of the activists told Al-Manar TV Channel that some of the documents included information about the Israeli spy in Egypt Azzam Azzam whom ousted President Hosni Moubarak ordered his release four years ago.

Furthermore, the 25 January revolution coalition stated that the protestors have detained three of the Israeli embassy employees, and moved them to a “safer” place.

The coalition coordinator Houssam Al-Din Ammar told Al-Manar that the three officials were the Israeli ambassador’s secretary, and two communication and protocol officials in the embassy.

He also said that high-ranked officials have called him personally asking for the release of the Israeli detainees, but he demanded the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador and all the embassy staff, and the summoning of the Egyptian ambassador in Israel before any release, and put a time frame of three hours to do so.

Media reports revealed Saturday that Higher Chief of the Armed forces Hussein Tantawi began personally negotiating with the protestors to release the detainees, but the revolution coalition put the mentioned conditions and warned that if they were not implemented, they will intensify their movement.

The Israeli ambassador in Cairo Yitzhak Levanon reportedly left Egypt Saturday, leaving behind his senior diplomat to resume the embassy’s work.

AFP quoted an Israeli official as saying that "we left the deputy ambassador to keep up contact with the Egyptian government."

For his part, US President Barack Obama expressed his “great concern” of the rising situation to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, and demanded the Egyptian authorities to “protect” the Israeli embassy; while Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak requested US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to help protecting the embassy in Cairo.

Obama’s office issued a statement indicating that Obama has “reviewed the steps that the United States is taking at all levels to help resolve the situation without further violence, and to call on the Government of Egypt to honor its international obligations to safeguard the security of the Israeli Embassy."

How can you guys be proud of something like this ?!

Attacking an embassy is a disgusting thing to do.

All real Egyptians do not want any "embassy" of the illegal Zionist colonialist entity anywhere on Egyptian soil, the only reason such a building has existed for the last few decades was because of the Amerikkkan/Zionist "Israeli" controlled proxy dictatorships of the Zio-Western pawn dictators Anwar al-Sadat and Hosni Mubarak (who repressed the Egyptian people on orders from their masters in "Tel Aviv" and Washington, D.C.). I will tell you what is truly disgusting is that it is 2011 and the Zionist racist, apartheid, colonialist entity continues to steal and occupy the land of Palestine. The Palestinians (in their own homeland of Palestine) are still living a reality of being occupied and colonized that should be something we only read about in history books about the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries CE. But then again the Iraqi people and Afghani people live this today as well, under Western neocolonialist occupation till this day as well.

Sort of reminded me of the berlin wall coming down

http://killinghope.org/bblum6/aer96.html

Quote-

The Berlin Wall — Another Cold War Myth

The Western media will soon be revving up their propaganda motors to solemnize the 50th anniversary of the erecting of the Berlin Wall, August 13, 1961. All the Cold War clichés about The Free World vs. Communist Tyranny will be trotted out and the simple tale of how the wall came to be will be repeated: In 1961, the East Berlin communists built a wall to keep their oppressed citizens from escaping to West Berlin and freedom. Why? Because commies don't like people to be free, to learn the "truth". What other reason could there have been?

First of all, before the wall went up thousands of East Germans had been commuting to the West for jobs each day and then returning to the East in the evening; many others went back and forth for shopping or other reasons. So they were clearly not being held in the East against their will. Why then was the wall built? There were two major reasons:

1) The West was bedeviling the East with a vigorous campaign of recruiting East German professionals and skilled workers, who had been educated at the expense of the Communist government. This eventually led to a serious labor and production crisis in the East. As one indication of this, the New York Times reported in 1963: "West Berlin suffered economically from the wall by the loss of about 60,000 skilled workmen who had commuted daily from their homes in East Berlin to their places of work in West Berlin." 1

In 1999, USA Today reported: "When the Berlin Wall crumbled [1989], East Germans imagined a life of freedom where consumer goods were abundant and hardships would fade. Ten years later, a remarkable 51% say they were happier with communism." 2 Earlier polls would likely have shown even more than 51% expressing such a sentiment, for in the ten years many of those who remembered life in East Germany with some fondness had passed away; although even 10 years later, in 2009, the Washington Post could report: "Westerners say they are fed up with the tendency of their eastern counterparts to wax nostalgic about communist times." 3

It was in the post-unification period that a new Russian and eastern Europe proverb was born: "Everything the Communists said about Communism was a lie, but everything they said about capitalism turned out to be the truth." It should also be noted that the division of Germany into two states in 1949 — setting the stage for 40 years of Cold War hostility — was an American decision, not a Soviet one. 4

2) During the 1950s, American coldwarriors in West Germany instituted a crude campaign of sabotage and subversion against East Germany designed to throw that country's economic and administrative machinery out of gear. The CIA and other US intelligence and military services recruited, equipped, trained and financed German activist groups and individuals, of West and East, to carry out actions which ran the spectrum from juvenile delinquency to terrorism; anything to make life difficult for the East German people and weaken their support of the government; anything to make the commies look bad.

It was a remarkable undertaking. The United States and its agents used explosives, arson, short circuiting, and other methods to damage power stations, shipyards, canals, docks, public buildings, gas stations, public transportation, bridges, etc; they derailed freight trains, seriously injuring workers; burned 12 cars of a freight train and destroyed air pressure hoses of others; used acids to damage vital factory machinery; put sand in the turbine of a factory, bringing it to a standstill; set fire to a tile-producing factory; promoted work slow-downs in factories; killed 7,000 cows of a co-operative dairy through poisoning; added soap to powdered milk destined for East German schools; were in possession, when arrested, of a large quantity of the poison cantharidin with which it was planned to produce poisoned cigarettes to kill leading East Germans; set off stink bombs to disrupt political meetings; attempted to disrupt the World Youth Festival in East Berlin by sending out forged invitations, false promises of free bed and board, false notices of cancellations, etc.; carried out attacks on participants with explosives, firebombs, and tire-puncturing equipment; forged and distributed large quantities of food ration cards to cause confusion, shortages and resentment; sent out forged tax notices and other government directives and documents to foster disorganization and inefficiency within industry and unions ... all this and much more. 5

The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, of Washington, DC, conservative coldwarriors, in one of their Cold War International History Project Working Papers (#58, p.9) states: "The open border in Berlin exposed the GDR [East Germany] to massive espionage and subversion and, as the two documents in the appendices show, its closure gave the Communist state greater security."

Throughout the 1950s, the East Germans and the Soviet Union repeatedly lodged complaints with the Soviets' erstwhile allies in the West and with the United Nations about specific sabotage and espionage activities and called for the closure of the offices in West Germany they claimed were responsible, and for which they provided names and addresses. Their complaints fell on deaf ears. Inevitably, the East Germans began to tighten up entry into the country from the West, leading eventually to the infamous Wall. However, even after the wall was built there was regular, albeit limited, legal emigration from east to west. In 1984, for example, East Germany allowed 40,000 people to leave. In 1985, East German newspapers claimed that more than 20,000 former citizens who had settled in the West wanted to return home after becoming disillusioned with the capitalist system. The West German government said that 14,300 East Germans had gone back over the previous 10 years. 6

Let's also not forget that Eastern Europe became communist because Hitler, with the approval of the West, used it as a highway to reach the Soviet Union to wipe out Bolshevism forever, and that the Russians in World War I and II, lost about 40 million people because the West had used this highway to invade Russia. It should not be surprising that after World War II the Soviet Union was determined to close down the highway.

^My father west to West Germany during the 70s to try and find a better life, things didnt work out and he came back. He went over land to Germany traveling by road and rail through Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey to eastern Europe. He went by train through the then communist Bulgaria. Only trains were allowed to go through Bulgaria and when the train stopped at stations he was not allowed to go outside. He recalls that people of Bulgaria, whom he saw at the stations from the windows of the train, seemed to have a meek, frightened look about them.

After telling me this my father said to me"any system which tries to control the way people think is evil"

What about attacking killing stealing and deceiving all the locals in the holy land .. Turning anybody who is not Jew into secondary citizens? At least Jews who visit to Egypt (like any foreigner) usually get respected more by Egyptians than the locals because of famous Egyptian hospitality. But politics is politics .. At least they didn't kill the embassy staff like sheikh yassin in his wheelchair was hit by an army chopper. Mr. Stephan y play devils advocate? Is the life, peace, justice of zionist worth more than that of others? Eye for an eye! Humans are human! We are all children of Adam (as) and let us know if u think that the lives and human rights of non-Zionist is less than zionists. Tell us wether u think our blood is worth less than their please .. Thanks

(salam)

Btw playing devils advocate will only hurt the person who does it, and us Muslims are taught not to care.

Peace

Regardless of what you think about the state of israel, it is a currently recognised state and member of the united nations.

Under international law it is the obligation of the host country to do their very best to protect the embassies they host and they did this well.

What you said would have made sense if Israel wasnt the leading violator of the very same international law.

Again the imperialist murderous Amerikkkans and West owe $75 trillion in reparations to North Korea (and the imperialist West still does evil imperialist sanctions against North Korea and its people till this very day).

But I'm sure to some people here "freedom" (a fake word just like "democracy" when nobody every calls for actual direct/participatory democracy or the social justice of democratizing the means of production out of the hands of oppressive bourgeoisie so the bulk of humanity can actually survive and eat (i.e. us proletarians) must mean poisoned imperialist vaccines and poisoning water supplies with fluoride and lithium among other deadly drugs to cause human cancer rates and deaths to spike.

Long live the example of the honest, truthful, and great companion (Sahabi) Abu Dharr al-Ghifari (ra), whom the Prophet Muhammad(SAWW) loved dearly!

Egypt’s Shias to form political party, run in elections

Egypt’s Shia minority has announced its intention to run in the parliamentary elections slated for November, following in the footsteps of the Sunni Islamic movements that have resurged in the political arena since the January uprising.

Shias were shunned from Egypt’s political and social life throughout the 30-old year regime of ousted President Hosni Mubarak. There are no official statistics on the number of Shias in Egypt, but experts on the country’s religious minorities estimate their number between 50,000 and 80,000, a relatively small proportion of Egypt’s population of 85-million. Some were banned from traveling abroad and repeatedly arrested by the security services of Mubarak’s regime.

Some religious groups in Egypt, such as the Salafis - who follow the Sunni doctrine and became heavily involved in the Egyptian political arena after the 25 January revolution - are against the Shias establishing a political party or engaging in any political activity. They accuse them of being financed by Iran to spread the Shia doctrine in Egypt, where the majority is Sunni.

Shia leaders recently announced their intention to establish a political party, named the Unity and Freedom Party.

Since March, the Egyptian commission for political parties has officially registered the Freedom and Justice Party formed by the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as three parties belonging to the Salafi movement, despite a law passed by the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) prohibiting the establishment of parties on a religious basis.

"As engaging in politics has become a right for all Egyptians, we must also be represented in parliament, just like any other faction," said Ahmed al-Nafees, founder of the Unity and Freedom Party.

Nafees added that his party is neither sectarian nor restricted to followers of the Shia sect. "Many recently established parties have no clear ideology or direction, but nonetheless began their activities," he said. "So why are some political parties trying to deny our rights to do the same?”

His party has almost met the requirement for the minimum number of founding members stipulated by the Political Parties' Affairs Committee in order to establish a party, Nafees added. The new law requires the founders of new parties to acquire the signatures of at least 5000 citizens from ten different governorates in order to establish a party.

Nafees added that party leaders were currently discussing plans to field candidates in the upcoming parliamentary elections.

“Even if we do not get the approval from the committee before the election date, we can run as independents by the individual candidate system," he said.

According to Nabil Abdel Fattah, an expert at Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, the political atmosphere is now conducive to the Shias to be represented in parliament.

Fattah expects the Political Parties' Affairs Committee to register the party, especially since Egypt's Shias do not preach mixing religion with politics, unlike some Sunni Islamist groups.

The Shia party has three main headquarters: one in Cairo; one in Mansoura, Daqahlia Governorate; and one in Zagazig, Sharqiya Governorate. The three governorates are known to possess a number of mosques frequented by Shias from across Egypt.

In 2010, Egyptian security forces monitored a number of campaigns by Shia activists promoting their doctrine in those governorates.

According to Nafees, while Shias' voting power is considerable, their social marginalization and persecution by the Egyptian authorities before the revolution made it difficult for them to form an organized political movement.

The new Shia party leaders said they were likely to form alliances with other political forces, so long as they share common visions. He added that some Sufi orders, one of which has already established a party, had compatible ideas with them, and that the Shia party would not mind forming coalitions with these groups.

Nafees added that he had already consulted with some left-wing leaders in Egypt to discuss the idea of running on a joint electoral list.

Experts say that a possible coalition between Shias and Sufis, or even one party backing the other in the upcoming parliamentary elections, is an obvious counter to the Democratic Alliance for Egypt, a large political alliance formed in early June led by the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party. Altogether, it groups more than 40 parties across the political spectrum, including some Salafi parties.

According to Abdel Fattah, the alliance between the Shias and the Sufis makes sense, as both are new to the political scene and their chances of winning parliamentary seats on their own would be slim.

Sufis number about 10 million in Egypt, he added, which would give such a coalition more strength.

However, observers believe that Shias' and Sufis' political inexperience, as well as their troubled relationships with other Islamic groups, may place them in a situation similar to that of liberals, who have run into trouble mobilizing support.

"A Shia party in Egypt will antagonize all Egyptians, not only religious groups,” said Mamdouh Ismail, a leading member of the emerging Salafi political movement. “Egyptians are predominantly Sunnis, so why would they should vote for a Shia party?”

In an echo of Mubarak-era rhetoric, Ismail said that Egypt’s Shias will serve the interests of Iran, the world’s most populous Shia country.

"They are funded by Iran,” he said. “This means they will implement its agenda to spread that doctrine in the Arab region."

Iran is known to support Shia movements in the Arab world, such as Hizbullah in Lebanon, the Huthis in northern Yemen, and various political groups in Iraq and Bahrain.

Former President Hosni Mubarak previously accused the Iranians of seeking to control the region by “exporting” their revolution and spreading their doctrine in Egypt.

In an interview with the Dubai-based Al-Arabiya satellite channel on 8 April 2006, Mubarak said, “Shias in Arab countries are loyal to Iran and not to their own countries."
