What does Egypt have to celebrate regarding the October, 1973 war with Israel? A sneak attack followed by an overwhelming defeat !!! I thought that RT was better at reporting history.

What is going on in Egypt is identical to what has been happening in Syria. Outside money,arms, and mercenaries are infiltrating the crowd to cause havoc. The tribal/venison nature of the Arab Muslims dictates chain reaction.

T he Egyptian security forces are reasonably good, and may have a chance of neutralizing the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda fighters. But, my bet is on the Muslim Brotherhood side? They are small in number, but slow bleeding can exhaust any country, especially a bankrupted one like Egypt. Violence kills tourism. Unemployment leads to exposure to militant Islam paid for by the Saudis.

Saudi Arabia is public enemy # 1 . . . The Saudi Wahhabist sect is the most fanatic Extremist movement in the world and is devoted to jihad all over the world. Is supporting these criminals the price of using their oil?


You hit the nail on the head there.

People in the streets now are totally innocent.I can send you dozens of videos recording the brutal actions of the military. Muslimbrotherhood never used force agqinst civilians.


I'm not denying that brutality. But the Brotherhood, at the outset of the coup, organised mobs to storm army positions and government buildings to retake power. There are videos of that as well. Even if all in the Streets are innocent, which is debatable, the army's perception of them was coloured by those attempts, just as the Brotherhood's view of the army was by the coup.

Zionism is deadly animal disease that not only israel but Arabs dictators and Egypt military are caught by this animal disease

This is not a revenge by Muslim brotherhood,just trying to undermine the celebration by Egyptian revolutionaries for getting rid Wahhabism out of their constitution nor is about the victorious Egyptian military war of 1973 against Zionist filthy dogs.This is about Salafists,being ordered by their benefactors(Zionists and Jesuits) to sabotage "Naserizm" and the possible rebirth of Arab nationalism.Pan Arabism is the ultimate weapon for the total destruction of Zionism in ME and North Africa and that is why western Luciferians are so scared of Arab unity.

Islam is a virus

The Norwegian press is not talking about this at all. im starting to think that the Egyptian army is US-controlled.

It looks like that this October 6th had nothing to do with Arab vs. Israeli war. It had every thing to do with, how to terminate the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters.

This is the work of the fascist globalist west. Creating chaos all over the world so that they can control the nation .

Hopefully only MB people got killed. If they want sharia law they are okay with dying because that is part of the culture.

to Steve: The MB is not a US ally (contrary to what Fox may say) - MB was better than Mubarek until the MB showed their true intentions. This is why non-Muslims need to let Muslims work out their own problems... today's good guys are tomorrow's bad guys.

Double edge sword.. MB is USA ally...but army is Israel ally.. so who to support....seems Egypt is gonna engulf in constant power struggle foe years n the losers are ordinary Egyptians n the pyramids..


I am for stable government. The War faction of US/Saudi/UK/ Israel are supporting Al Qaeda because they want constant turmoil in the lands of their "percieved" ; enemies. The best quote on this comes from Michael Ledeen of the AEI. who said: "We do not want stability in Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and even Saudi Arabia; we want things to change"

44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.
48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
