A More Violent Egypt

Steven LeBlanc

The Muslim Brotherhood’s chief leader, Mohammed Badie, disseminated a statement that military chief Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was pushing Egypt into a Syria-like civil breakdown. These were dangerous words that may only make the chaos in Egypt worse. Should Egypt erupt into civil war, the whole of the Middle East would be thrown into absolute choas.

The political unrest in Egypt intensified when more than 42 supporters of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood were killed and another 300 were wounded in fighting with military forces outside the Republican Guards officers’ club July 8th. The Muslim Brotherhood will continue to try to pressure the military and its transitional government by staging conflict in the streets. This is a dangerous game. The Brotherhood does not want to try to overthrow the Egyptian military—but it does want to prove itself forceful enough, so it may assert a stronger position when it negotiates with the Egyptian military in the future.

There seems to be no satisfactory solution to the ousting of President Morsi.

Egyptian are mostly descendants of Ishmael—the religion of Ishmael is the religion of Islam.
The way of Islam is one of hostility, anger and war…the prophecy of Genesis 16 continues to play out: “You shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard your misery, He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers”.—verses 11-12. Today brother against brother is the tide that is riding high in Egypt.
