Israel Admits Role in Overthrow of Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi and Installation of President Al-Sisi*

Israel Admits Role in Overthrow of Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi and Installation of President Al-Sisi*

There is always a question of doubt when Israel admits to a foul act. The question is not so much that the ‘declaration is true, but how much of it is true, underpinned by the initial spark to the question, what is the real intention by making such a revelation, and why now? Israel’s expendability can be reduced by making such a claim as professional liars, knowing that the West wants what Israel is claiming to control, which does not include entire populations…

By Seif al-Din Abdel-Fattah

Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon admitted in his speech at the annual AIPAC conference, the largest Zionist lobby supporting Israel in the U.S., that the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi and the installation of Egyptian President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi was planned, in cooperation with generals in the Egyptian and Gulf armies and intelligence agencies. He also said that Israel’s interests will always be served by having military regimes in the Arab world, especially in Egypt.

He apologised that the military regimes usually disregard democracy in Egypt but called on the lobby to provide more support for Al-Sisi. Ya’alon also explicitly said: “We decided to allow General Al-Sisi, who was the defence minister at the time, to take over power by mobilising the army in order to become a president. The West should consider this of strategic interest for them as well.”

This is not the first testimony made by the Israeli occupation’s generals and rabbis regarding the need to keep Al-Sisi as president of Egypt in order to serve Israel’s interests. The archive of relations between the two countries is full of flattery and statements of complete support for this government, which Israel has dreamed about for years, according to Wael Qandil. The coup was an opportunity for Israel to practice its extortion in order to continue its normalisation strategy.

Moshe Yaalon, Defense Minister of Israel

With regards to relations between Arab countries and Israel, normalisation means that these countries, or their institutions or figures carrying out cooperative projects, have economic and trade exchanges and spread the culture of acceptance of the enemy in a context of political poisoning and cultural normalisation while the occupation continues. Normalisation in this case not only means allowing for natural relations to develop between the oppressor and the oppressed in the absence of justice and continued occupation and settlement activity. It also means that those who normalise relations with Israel are voluntarily stripping Israel of its label as an enemy and instead accuses those resisting the Israeli occupation of hostility.

One of the ironic things we are hearing today, despite the crimes committed by Israel, are dangerous statements made by Arab leaders and PA officials, as well as a chorus of Arab writers and intellectuals who have become “Zionised”. They are trying to change the label of “enemy” given to Israel into other attributes associated with partnership or friendship. Normalisation and lifting the boycott is an old Israeli dream since the establishment of their state in occupied Palestine. This vision consists of establishing normal and ordinary relations between the two sides, just like any relation between two sides during a time of peace, bonded together by respect and love, without any form of contradiction or hostility.

We can all see the magnitude of the normalisation of Egyptian and Israeli relations since the 3 July 2013 coup, on the political, economic, security and defence levels, as well as on the cultural level, as many Egyptian intellectuals, media personalities and sports figures have publicly called for normalisation on all levels.

The normalisation operations have reached an extraordinary level where relations between the two countries have surpassed the normal relations between most nations. Frankly, it has reached a level closer to dependency on the enemy and nothing proves this more than the almost regular official and unofficial statements made by Israeli officials gloating about this.

In the past, we used to criticise the Egyptian and Arab media for its lack of interest in the boycott campaign against Israel and the multi-national companies supporting Israel, which are located in all Arab countries. Now, we have different media platforms through which we can activate this campaign in an organised manner and on a long term basis by means of various media mechanisms.

For example, we can start by adopting one united campaign that is coordinated through these platforms. It will involve regular programmes to oppose the normalisation operations occurring on various levels. Each programme can address one of the levels, including the political, economic, security, defence, cultural and sports level.

We can also start by organising specialised programmes that aim to reactivate the means of resistance in the nation, including the economic boycott of Israel and the countries supporting Israel or the multi-national companies located in all Arab and Muslim countries.

We base all of our activities on the fact that Israel is a Zionist colonial enemy entity that has seized the land of another nation. It is not a friend or neighbour, as the coup-led government treats it or how some Egyptian and Arab intellectuals claim. Israel is a colonial entity represented by an armed gang that established a state by force, murder, expulsion, confiscation, displacement and other means of colonisation.

There is no difference in our eyes between the companies that provide services to the Israeli masses and the companies that provide services to the Israeli army or Israeli settlements. Equally, there is no difference between the gang that seizes land and kills children and the armed settlers in civilian and military clothing. We must remember that the recruitment system in Israel is based on the idea of the “People’s Army” in which everyone participates and is mobilised during times of danger.

Shame on any Arab, Christian or Muslim, who allows companies that provide services to Israelis to exist in their country, especially companies working in the food, drink and telecommunications sector, which are all matters the Arabs can find alternatives for. In fact, the alternatives are already present and all the Arabs need is the will to take effective action towards boycott.

In addition to this, we can also talk about Israel’s continued adoption of the settlement policy which violates all international laws, including the laws that recognise the reality of colonialism. Companies such as Orange provide services to Israeli settlements that are illegally established based on international law and are internationally condemned.

There is a universal disapproval of Israel’s expansionist settlement policies exercised on Palestinian land. This disapproval is being expressed by the international public opinion, not the governments, and therefore we can coordinate with the leaders of the campaigns launched in Europe and across the world in this regard, making it a joint campaign launched from the inside and the outside.

The triangle of normalisation is represented by the coup, its “Zionised” supporters and the normalisation tools, and therefore, resisting normalisation is part of resisting the coup.

Syrian Army, Hezbollah cut-off ISIL’s Main Supply Route to Palmyra*

By Leith Fadel

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is in serious trouble at the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur), thanks in large part to the recent offensive launched by the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside. However, the situation for ISIL in Palmyra has just taken a turn for the worse after the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and their allies imposed full control over two hills that overlook the terrorist group’s primary supply route along the Ithriya-Palmyra Road.

Just how devastating is this?

Well, the Ithriya-Palmyra Road allowed ISIL to have a short route from the east Hama front to the city of Palmyra. Now that they have been cut off along this important roadway, ISIL will have to take a long trip through the vast mountains of north-eastern Homs that require them to travel along this rough terrain using makeshift roads. More importantly, the Ithriya-Palmyra Road provided ISIL with a short and reliable route to transport oil from the oil rich town of Al-Sukhanah to the Al-Raqqa Governorate. The loss of this road is going to be devastating in the coming days, as ISIL will be forced to rely on their current provisions against the well-armed Syrian Arab Army.



ISIL’s largest offensive inside Deir Ezzor City ends in complete disaster


By Leith Fadel


The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) launched their largest offensive inside the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Sunday morning, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the Harabash School District building. Hundreds of ISIL fighters reportedly stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s defences at the Harabash School District building after a failed VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) attack, resulting in a fierce battle that would last for over 2 hours on Sunday morning. However, ISIL was unable to seize the Harabash School District building after several attempts to infiltrate the Syrian Armed Forces’ front-lines. Instead, the Syrian Arab Army’s resistance proved too much for the terrorist group, resulting in ISIL’s abrupt retreat from the Harabash District to Sakr Island (Haweeja Sakr).

According to a source from the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, ISIL suffered over 30 casualties during their disastrous offensive at the Harabash District on Sunday, including several foreign fighters from Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Egypt, and Libya. ISIL’s offensive at the Harabash District on Sunday was in response to the Syrian Arab Army’s recent advance in Deir Ezzor’s south-western countryside; in particular, the Thayyem Oil Fields and Gas Company’s Technical Institute.

Clinton’s Emails Reveals a Sunni-Shiite War Would be Good for Israel and the West*

The intelligence service of Israel considers a potential Sunni-Shiite war in Syria a favourable development for the country and the West, according to an email archive of former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, released by WikiLeaks.

The author of the email, forwarded by Clinton in July 2012, argued that Israel is convinced Iran would lose “its only ally” in the Middle East, if the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad collapses.

“The fall of the House of Assad could well ignite a sectarian war between the Shiites and the majority Sunnis of the region drawing in Iran, which, in the view of Israeli commanders would not be a bad thing for Israel and its Western allies,” an email stated.

In addition, the author underscored that a potential Sunni-Shiite war would delay the Iranian nuclear program.”In the opinion of this [Israeli intelligence] individual, such a scenario would distract and might obstruct Iran from its nuclear activities for a good deal of time,” the email said.

The Israeli intelligence also considered the possible Sunni-Shiite war as a factor that could contribute to the collapse of the government in Iran.

“In addition, certain senior Israeli intelligence analysts believe that this turn of events may even prove to be a factor in the eventual fall of the current government of Iran,” the email said.

In March, WikiLeaks created a searchable archive for emails sent to and from Clinton’s private email server, while she served as the secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
