Qatar’s Egyptian national notorious mufti, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, will be arrested immediately if he is found to set foot in Egypt, following his support to the Muslim brotherhood and his hostile remarks about Egypt’s Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar.
Egypt’s chief prosecutor Hisham Barakat issued an arrest warrant for Qaradawi, on accusation of inciting the killing of Egyptian security forces and meddling in the country’s affairs.
Qaradawi has been a major critic of the country’s army following the ouster of Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, in July 3.
According to Egyptian media, Barakat has assigned security authorities to look for all the other security issues that Qaradawi might have been involved in.
Qaradawi’s name has been put under the wanted list of all Egyptian airports, according to Barakat’s order, and he is to be arrested as he sets foot inside Egypt.
Since Morsi’s ouster, Egypt has been the scene of demonstrations held by former president’s supporters demanding his reinstatement.
Egypt has also witnessed violence since then as the army-appointed government has launched a bloody crackdown on Morsi supporters and arrested more than 2,000 Muslim Brotherhood members.
Hundreds of people have lost their lives in the violence between Morsi supporters and the security forces so far.
IRIB- “Aucun bateau de guerre américain ou navire britannique ou autre n’est autorisé à passer par le canal de Suez”, a ordonné le ministre égyptien de la Défense.
Selon Farsnews, citant Reuters, le général Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi a insisté pour qu’aucune autorisation ne soit donnée aux bateaux de guerre qui entendraient attaquer la Syrie. La décision a été prise, dans le cadre du respect du gouvernement égyptien envers l’accord de défense commun signé entre l’Egypte et la Syrie, annonce l’agence Reuters, ce qui rend difficile aux Etats-Unis et à la Grande-Bretagne une attaque contre la Syrie, selon cette même agence.
Le Père Ayoub Youssef, le prêtre de l’église de la vierge Marie à al-Minya en Egypte affirme que ce sont les « baltajia* » qui ont incendié les églises dans la ville de al-Minya et que les imams ont appelé hier, vendredi, à protéger les églises.
Il déclara sur la chaîne On TV, que les « balatajia » n’ont cessé d’agresser les églises depuis le 3 juillet, suite à l’annonce du coup d’état et que ces derniers ont pillé un monastère ancien de 1500 ans.
Il ajouta que les imams ont appelé dans les mosquées, pendant la Prière du vendredi, à l’amour, à la tolérance et au patriotisme, et que ce jour fut effectivement, pour eux (les chrétiens) un jour de paix.

Is the US government targeting Egypt for destabilization – and eventual destruction?
The recent appointment of death squad organizer Robert Ford as US Ambassador to Egypt suggests as much.
Ford’s appointment sends a clear message: US policymakers want to destroy Egypt in the same way they have destroyed Iraq and Syria – by using death squads and false-flag terror to incite civil war.
According to Global Studies professor Michel Chossudovsky, Robert Ford teamed up with notorious war criminal John Negroponte to apply the “Salvador Option” in Iraq in 2004. Chossudovsky writes: “The ‘Salvador Option’ is a ‘terrorist model’ of mass killings by US sponsored death squads. It was first applied in El Salvador (by Negroponte) in the heyday of resistance against the military dictatorship, resulting in an estimated 75,000 deaths.”
Today’s Egypt, like 1980s El Salvador, is experiencing a heyday of resistance against military dictatorship. And Egypt’s military dictatorship (like El Salvador’s 1980s junta) has already resorted to the mass murder of anti-government activists. Will Robert Ford, an expert in organizing political mass murder, help the Egyptian regime slaughter tens of thousands of peaceful protesters?
No – it’s even worse than that!
Al Jazeera Mubasher Misr, the Egyptian arm of the Qatari-funded broadcaster has suffered major embarrassment today after 22 staff members walked out over accusations of bias.
The 22 staff resigned on Monday over what they alleged was coverage that was out of sync with real events in Egypt, according to a report by the Gulf News website.
Anchor Karem Mahmoud announced that the staff resigned in protest against “biased coverage” of the recent events in Egypt. He explained that there was a lack of commitment and Al Jazeera professionalism in media coverage, stating, “the management in Doha provokes sedition among the Egyptian people and has an agenda against Egypt and other Arab countries.”
Mahmoud added that the management used to instruct each staff member to favour the Muslim Brotherhood.
He said that “there are instructions to us to telecast certain news”.
In February of this year, Ghaffar Hussain, contributing editor to The Commentator wrote, “Since the Muslim Brotherhood has come to power in Egypt, Al Jazeera has done all in its power to portray the group in a favourable light. Protests against the Brotherhood-dominated regime are presented as being led by violent thugs with no political grievances, while Morsi’s poorly constructed and shallow speeches are given positive coverage.”
Haggag Salama, a correspondent of the network in Luxor, had resigned on Sunday accusing it of “airing lies and misleading viewers”. He announced his resignation in a phone-in interview with Dream 2 channel.
Meanwhile, four Egyptian members of editorial staff at Al Jazeera’s headquarters in Doha resigned in protest against what they termed a “biased editorial policy” pertaining to the events in Egypt, Ala’a Al Aioti, a news producer, told Gulf News by phone.

Egyptian army is not taking side of the people. But simply taking the side of the US that seems to be wanting Morsi out.
You think the army is taking side of the people. And that is what they’re doing, physically.
But, if they’re taking sides with the people to have Morsi out, it is because America and israel want Morsi out.
Egyptian army would never go against US/israel will. Because the US finances Egyptian army. You’ll see that whatever the outcome, Egypt will not change anything in its relation with the US and israel. Just like previous “revo”, stupid “Arab Spring” deception, this one is also US engineered.
Believing this is just Egyptian people protesting and the army protecting the people because of the love it has for people is just insane. Especially in a country living exclusively thanks to US money !!! Believing so would mean that you are indirectly saying that the Egyptian army is like the Syrian Arab Army. Which, as you may know, is absolutely not the case and is a complete absurdity!!! Nothing compares!
If Egyptian army was so righteous and “independent”, why didn’t it listen to Egyptian people when it took to the streets and protested against israel bombing on Lebanon in 2006? And why didn’t it react when Egyptian parliament called for an international arrest warrant against Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah ? Funny how Lebanon was being destroyed but Egypt decided to take action against the resistance instead of calling for an arrest warrant against israeli war criminals…Where was the Egyptian army at that moment?…
Why didn’t the army listen to Egyptian people when they took to the streets in 2008 and asked the army to disobey Mubarak and open the Rafah border when israel was bombing the hell out of Gaza strip?
Why did it accept to beat its own people at the beginning of what you call “revolution” in 2011??? It then switched its position when it noticed that the people wouldn’t leave Tahrir. Egyptian army needs the people to keep ruling. This is the only reason it is now “protecting” the people.
Why didn’t it express its sympathy and support to the main pillar of Resistance: Syria Al-Assad?
On the other hand, you might wonder why the US and israel want Morsi out?
Since it launched its Arab Spring deception in Egypt, the US has been willing to impose Mister El Baradei as the new ruler in Egypt. Though, after a while, Egyptians got to understand that El Baradei was a stooge who not only obeyed they US, but was sitting next to israel war criminal president Shimon Peres at the ICG (amongst other zionists).
Hence, US and israel had to switch to plan B and let the muslim brotherhood rule the country. The muslim brotherhood that they themselves created. Let some time go by, and find a way to slowly put El Baradei back on track to take Egypt over.
Keep in mind that Egypt is a strategic country for both US and israel and especially for zionist plans. Hence, do not expect anything in favor of the Egyptian people to happen. It will always be to israel’s advantage. Even if the people itself demands for it, it will be the fruit of manipulation and deception, and ultimately, in israel’s favor. Exactly as it happened with the fall of Mubarak, and exactly as it will happen now. Whatever the outcome is.
