Terrorism in the Sinai and Egypt 22 Apr – 04 May ’15

4 May

On a widely subscribed academic list, the Sociology of Islam, one may read frequent posts by Dr. Alain Gabon reviling President Sisi. Colleagues unfamiliar with Egypt who read Western language media have a very flawed picture of the most pressing issues in the country as a result of editorial bias. In attempting to rebut Gabon, and in visiting different university campuses in the U.S. I realized that many – and not only Americans — are unaware of the very real acts of terrorism now perpetrated on a daily basis in Egypt by supporters of ex-President Morsi.  Many are militants to whom the political process is irrelevant; their aim is destabilization.  Hardly any western media cover the issue; if they do, the only analysis offered is that the Sinai campaign is “too harsh,” or they insist that the Muslim Brotherhood “must be re-included” as per the position of the New York Times and Washington Post’s editorial board. Only Egyptians and those who have followed the terrorist/militant groups in the Sinai since their emergence c. 2004, realize that the militants in the Sinai proliferated during President Morsi’s term, have multiplied due to external factors, and that connections to Gaza, Libya, Sudan and elsewhere render the Sinai terrorism a regional issue, and not only a local one. I am waiting to read a serious article about the funding of these groups (or I will attempt to write one).  Then, there is the violence on the mainland, and so many incidents of IEDs or defused bombs that it is impossible to log them on a casual basis – but this will give you a snippet of these events.

The Muslim Brotherhood and Acts of Violence in Egypt

10 Apr

Numerous misguided (originally) Asian Muslims in the UK and the US – which are heavily influenced by the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as Pres. Erdogan’s supporters in Turkey are defending criminal actions by members and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, as well as affiliated groups which have sworn loyalty to ex-President Mohamed Morsi and are engaging in violence on an everyday basis in Egypt.

Among them, Mohamed Elibiary – a political figure entrusted with pursuing terrorism in the U.S. government , has repeatedly stated that the Muslim Brotherhood is unconnected with any acts of violence in Egypt. And I am sorry to say this attitude extends to individuals who supposedly advise on terrorism such as Mubin Shaikh of Canada and numerous members and supporters of CAIR and MPAC.

The Muslim Brotherhood itself issued a statement disavowing any connection with violence recently http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/1/64/98626/Egypt/Politics-/Brotherhood-releases-lengthy-statement-condemning-.aspx

The statement omits mention of  President Morsi’s contacts with Mohammad al-Zawahri, the AQAM’s claim to jihad until Morsi is “returned” and the MANY acts of violence below.

Those who read English probably aren’t aware of the trial and evidence (here in links to parts of telephone transcripts) which explain the connection between the Freedom & Justice Party and the Muslim Brotherhood and the radical jihadists in the Sinai.  http://www.raymondibrahim.com/from-the-arab-world/exposed-the-muslim-brotherhoodal-qaeda-connection/

But even discounting that – which I cannot — what about all the daily acts of violence in Egypt which still have not ceased!

Even liberal journalists are swallowing the fantasy that there are no acts of terrorism or violence or subtly (or not so subtly) suggesting they are staged, or describing them as “political violence,” and not terrorism. Quite a few academics (who I know because of my work on Islamist movements within Islamic studies) – notably from Georgetown and Qatar University, University of Arizona, University of Toronto have blasted any effort on academic lists to post or hold discussions about what is going on in Egypt, unless these are rants against al-Sisi/”military dictatorship” or continuing accusations regarding the violence at Rabaa or Nahda last summer. They even rejected the report of Egypt’s National Council on Human Rights – -without reading it, and without realizing that some on that Council had strongly deplored violations of demonstrators and journalists’ rights since June.

I do intend to post some material soon on the campaign in the Sinai and the impact of the political divide in Egypt on its own extremist militants. Until then, here is a brief list of some of the acts of violence since the Mansoura attack, should you need a link to make the point that the Ikhwan have incited violence. (Many but not all were tweeted by Marlyn Tadros at @virtualactivism. Why? Well, you might think these actions were reported by the New York Times, or Washington Post, or McClatchy, and certainly by Reuters or AP, or AFP or in the European news, but in fact not many were. This is why Egyptians have been saying that foreign journalists are mainly concerned with the ‘rights’ of the Muslim Brotherhood, or influenced by their supporters at home.)


The Ikhwan leadership could easily diminish this violence by explicitly calling for its supporters and allies to cease attacks on authorities.
