Islam is The Solution

“Islam is the solution” …

 A catchy slogan that appeals to commoners who cannot discern the difference between politics and religion.

By Dr. Ashraf Ezzat / Staff Writer

Advertising banners are all over the streets of Egypt prior to 2010 parliamentary elections

The streets are crammed with banners and posters everywhere advertising different candidates for the coming Egyptian parliamentary elections due on next Sunday 28th, November. The banners and posters carry photos and names of candidates and often a slogan that summarizes the candidate’s plan of action if he is to be elected. For anyone who didn’t know better this might seem as the sign of a fierce and free democratic competition between candidates of different political parties, but frankly it isn’t, this whole show is a one party show disguised in a make-believe democracy.

The national Democratic Party (NDP) is the ruling party headed by Hosni Mubarak, the president of Egypt for almost a world record of 30 long years.

He is been running the Egyptian republic for consecutive six terms now and – God willing or not- will keep on for another 6 years to come. God will decide only on how many years he will still be in power before he departs this earthly kingdom, for he is 83 years old now but in good shape to run a democratic- as it could be- Middle Eastern country.

 One Man – Show

Egypt is one of the strongest allies to the United States in the region and it is the first Arab countries to sign a peace treaty with Israel in 1979.

The land of the pyramids and great ancient civilization is being led by an authoritarian rule; everybody knows it including the United States which preferred to turn a blind eye to this Egyptian mockery of democracy.

But why is this? How could one man rule for that period of time and still get the support of the west and the United States? Why Egyptians live up with this authoritarian regime and even more, why the United States would back up such authoritarianism?

The historical truth is that democracy is new to a lot of countries- recently freed from colonialism- in the Middle East. As a matter of fact Egypt is one of the leading countries in regard to political reforms and it witnessed a promising democratic political life back in the 1930s-40s during the reign of the Egyptian constitutional monarchy which ended in 1952.

With the advent of the republic era, the rule of Egypt dramatically shifted to authoritarian regimes which allowed nothing to grow under their feet, They never allowed the emergence of any truly independent judiciary, media, progressive secular parties or civil society groups — from women’s organizations to trade associations.

So whenever you sweep away the autocratic rule you go in a free fall until you hit the mosque, there is virtually nothing to fill the void in-between. Through the years of suppression, people found out that they can only practice politics- in terms of opposition- in the mosque; it was the only place where they could feel safe to express their political opinions and dream of a better alternative to authoritarianism.

But little did they know when they practiced politics inside the mosque what future held for them. They were contributing to the emergence of another form and may be a more dangerous kind of religious dictatorship, namely theocracy in the shape of Muslim governance promoted by the Egyptian secret organization called Muslim Brotherhood (MB ) which adopts a catchy slogan that says … “Islam is the solution”. It appeals to commoners who cannot discern the difference between politics and religion and who forgot- or were never told- that the dark ages throughout history were marked by the rule of clerics.    

The authoritarian rule has in a way subscribed to the sprouting of the buds of religious extremism in Egypt. Muslim Brotherhood has grown bigger over the years that they actually gained 20% of the parliament seats in 2005 parliamentary election.

Being aware of the problem looming ahead, the Egyptian NDP decided not to repeat the same mistake again. The Egyptian regime will not allow MB to gain that percentage of parliament seats ever again. The regime will not allow this monster to grow bigger and at the same time cannot get rid of it completely.

This is the dilemma the Egyptian autocratic regime is caught up in. the regime can abort and uproot this dangerous group, but in doing so the regime will probably lose a winning card that usually comes in handy whenever the white house urges the Egyptian ruling regime to allow more freedom to the political life in Egypt.

War on terrorism and authoritarianism in the Middle East

The United States tried to trick everybody into believing that she was trying to unleash democracy when she invaded Iraq. But the war proved that democracy in the Middle East is the last thing on America`s mind. The US only wants to secure the Middle East oil resources and guarantees the stability and expansion of the Israeli regime in the region.

 The average American citizen learned to dread one thing out of the so called war on terrorism and that is called Muslim extremists.

American president Obama and Egyptian president Mubarak

So whenever the call of more democracy in Egypt is raised the Egyptian authorities find no difficulty in scaring the Americans of the consequences of the idea as it would undoubtedly bring the Islamists to power and this is the last thing America needs right now.

Neither the US nor Israel wants another Hamas – an offshoot of MB – in the region, so they will keep their support for the ailing Mubarak rule in Egypt and probably to his son Gamal who is being promoted as the successor to his father reign in a way that would turn this republic into a monarchy in disguise.

This implicit cooperation with the Americans and the Israelis led the regime in Egypt to turn a blind eye to a lot of atrocities committed by Israel in the region and even helped to tighten the siege imposed on Gaza. So, it is no wonder that the official Egyptian media is keeping a low profile on the “Road to Hope humanitarian aid Convoy” that is passing nowadays through Egypt aiming to cross the eastern Egyptian border into Gaza – hopefully in the coming two days.

It is no wonder that the official reaction of the Egyptian government to the building of an Israeli barrier – that will only help to tighten the blockade on Gaza- along the 140 km border with Egypt is that it is of no concern to Egypt.

The streets of Egypt are witnessing violent confrontations between the Egyptian government security forces and followers of the MB. They are fighting for their own private interests. They both want exclusive political power no matter what.

 Both MB and NDP do not have the real support of Egyptians who are left with no alternative for the time being. Most Egyptians tend to stay away from the polling stations since they know beforehand that the elections are already fixed. I only wish they could keep away from following deceiving slogans as well. I hope that most Egyptians would come to realize that Islam is the solution only for Muslim Extremists to rise to power.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
