The American Media ignores the Obama-Muslim Brotherhood Alliance
Remember the recent Arab-Israeli conflict in Gaza? It is my contention that in return for a little temporary help to end that mini-war, Comrade Obama dropped to his knees and fully serviced the Muslim Bortherhood President Mohammed Morsi. He gave the Brotherhood a blank American taxpayer check to do what they want in establishing an Islamic State.
Within hours of the extensive talks with Obama, Morsi announced his assumption of total power. The new Islamist written Constitution was then rapidly "approved" in an election held so fast that international observers could not even get to Egypt to do poll watching. How convenient.
Now with the full support of the Obama regime the Muslim Brotherhood crackdown on freedom begins.
Muslim Brotherhood Crackdown on Free Speech
Egyptian satirist to be investigated for Morsi 'insult'
- Egypt’s leading independent newspaper said it was being investigated by the government for publishing "false news".
- Egypt's chief prosecutor ordered an investigation into allegations that opposition leaders committed treason by inciting supporters to overthrow Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
An Egyptian TV entertainer who satirised President Mohammed Morsi will be investigated for "insulting" the president, a judicial source said, in a case that underscores concerns over the right to freedom of speech under the new regime.
An Egyptian satirist who made fun of President Mohamed Mursi on television will be investigated by prosecutors following an accusation that he undermined the leader’s standing, a judicial source said.
Bassem Youssef’s case will increase worries about freedom of speech in the post-Hosni Mubarak era, especially when the country’s new constitution includes provisions criticised by rights activists for, among other things, forbidding insults reports France 24 News.
Egypt clashes: Anti-Morsi rioters torch Muslim Brotherhood HQ
Comrade Obama sold out Egyptians who believe in democracy and continues to fund the nation with American taxpayer's money.
In a separate case that fuels concern about press freedom, one of Egypt’s leading independent newspapers said it was being investigated by the prosecutor following a complaint from the presidency, which accused it of publishing false news.
Youssef rose to fame following the uprising that swept Mubarak from power in February 2011 with a satirical online programme that was compared with Jon Stewart’s Daily Show.
He has since had his own show on Egyptian television and mocked Mursi’s repeated use of the word “love” in his speeches by starting one of his programmes with a love song, holding a red pillow with the president’s face printed on it.
Human rights activists say it is the latest in a series of criminal defamation cases that bode ill for free speech as Egypt reshapes its institutions after Mubarak was toppled.
“The greatest threat to freedom of expression over the last four months has been this rise in criminal defamation cases, whether it is on charges of defaming the president or the judiciary,” said Heba Morayef, Egypt director of the New York-based Human Rights Watch.
“The problem is now is we are likely to see an increase in this because criminal defamation is now embedded in the constitution.”
Rivals accuse Mursi, who won Egypt’s first freely contested leadership election in June, of polarising society by foisting a divisive, Islamist-leaning constitution on the country.
In the case against the independent daily al-Masry al-Youm, the presidency accused the paper of “spreading false news representing a danger to civil peace, public security and affecting the presidency”, the paper said.
Al-Masry Al-Youm said one of its editors had been summoned by the prosecutor for questioning next Saturday.
UAE arrests 10 members of Muslim Brotherhood
Emirati newspaper Al Khaleej reported that authorities in the Gulf state had arrested 10 members of an Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood cell. “The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has conducted many courses and lectures for the members of the secret organisation regarding the election and the ways of changing regimes in Arab countries,” the paper said.
The suspects are accused of holding “secret meetings” in the Emirates, recruiting “Egyptian expats in the UAE to join their ranks”, and raising “large amounts of money which they sent illegally to the mother organisation in Egypt”. The article also alleged that the suspects collected classified information regarding matters of UAE defence says France 24 News.
