Al-Sisi attends seminar held by armed forces on “evil powers”

Seminar pointed at Muslim Brotherhood group's influence

President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi on Thursday attended a cultural seminar, held by the armed forces, discussing how “forces of evil” draw up strategies aimed at destroying the Egyptian state and inciting public opinion against it.

The parliamentary speaker, the prime minister, a number of army officials, and ministers were also present.

During the session, political analyst Abdel Moneem Saeed elaborated on those evil powers’ plans, mainly pointing fingers at the Muslim Brotherhood group. “They have two strategies; the first one is using militant groups to terrorise people on the ground, while the second one is using media outlets to distort the image of the state,” he said.

Saeed mentioned as an example, that when the New Suez Canal national project was launched, the Muslim Brotherhood spread lies that the Egyptian people will not benefit from the project and that it will be handed over to foreign investors.

“In another example, the Muslim Brotherhood started defending the Red Sea islands of Tiran and Sanafir as Egyptian lands through more lies and the promotion of the idea that the state was involved in a corrupted deal,” Saeed that.

The Red Sea islands maritime agreement was signed by Egypt and Saudi Arabia in April 2016. However, a group of local independent lawyers and leftist groups took their protest against ceding the lands to Saudi Arabia to court and obtained several verdicts by the Administrative Court, annulling the agreement.

The case is currently disputed before the Constitutional Court which is supposed to determine which state authority has the rights to decide on the agreement.

The seminar continued with a young soldier who spoke about the war on terrorism in Sinai, describing several operations launched against militant groups and paying respects to army martyrs.

    It is common for a failed Mid East dictatorship to blame its failures on foreign entities, Egypt is no different. In the 50’s they blamed Europe; in the 60’s and 70’s they blamed Israel; in the 80’s they blamed the Russians; early this century they blamed the Americans, recently they blamed even Italy for not accepting the torture of their student; now they blame it on the primitive terrorists aka the Muslim Brotherhood. When will Egypt realize that their economic, political, and social failures are mainly attributed to the corrupt incompetent ‘forces’ ruling it from within!

    President Al-Sisi is right calling the people who are causing Egypt to fail “evil powers’. The irony is the president is so clueless about who is causing Egypt to fail so let us open his eyes to who are those “evil powers”: On the top of the chart is the incompetent general who has no political or economic experience. His number 2 the prime minister is as clueless and incompetent. Under both of them come a useless collection of ministers pretending to run the economy. Last but not least hundreds of parliamentarians whose wooden seats are more useful than they are. Those President Al-Sisi are the “Evil Powers” who cause Egypt to fail, maybe not out of hate for Egypt but for sure out of ignorance and incompetence.
