Egypt Finally Cracks Down on Muslim Brotherhood

Egypt has been going through several issues after the ArabSpring led to the Revolution in Egypt which lasted between January 25th 2011 and 11th February 2011. The end of the revolution resulted in President Mubarak announcing his resignation as he dissolved his government and asked Aviation Minister and former Air Force Chief Ahmed Shafik to form a new government while also appointing Omar Suleiman, former Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate Chief, as new vice president.

On February 11th 2011 President Mubarak officially resigned and turned power over to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. On June 30th 2012 Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood started his term as the 5th President of Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood won the election which rang in a period of terrible events for the country.

Our main interests were with the security of the Suez Canal and we joined a narrow group of advocates who called on the Egyptian military to ensure the safety and security of the Suez Canal which we were ensured would not be at risk. The Muslim Brotherhood started to mismanage the country and people started to protest heavily against the reign of Morsi.

After several week of protest the military acted and ousted Morsi on July 3rd 2013 lead by General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi who was joined by opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei as well as the Grand Imam of Al Azhar Ahmed el-Tayeb and Coptic Pope Tawadros II.

I can only applaud General el-Sisi for this coup d’├ętat as it finally rid Egypt from the short rule of the Muslim Brotherhood. Protests were organized by the Muslim Brotherhood and for six weeks they have occupied Ramses Square as well as Nahda Square and Tahrir Square and those cowards moved their families into their encampments and used them as human shields hoping security forces would stay away.

The military asked protesters to leave peacefully and gave them plenty of time and after those moronic cowards refused to leave the military finally moved in on Monday at 0700 hours local time and started to rid the streets of the trash which infested it for over six weeks.

Western countries have tried to interfere and I am glad that el-Sisi ignored idiotic calls from foreign governments and acted in the best interest of Egypt. The number one priority will be to stabilize the situation and work on a permanent resolution to the issues which plagued the country since the former kingdom was overtaken by the military and King Farouk was forced to abdicate and his son Fuad II became the last king of Egypt.

Maybe it’s time to think about a return of the king with support of the military. Prince Muhammad Ali is the heir apparent to the throne of Egypt and we suggest reinstating the royal family in order to get the country back under control, calm the Egyptian financial markets and ring in a period of calm, security and prosperity.
