Dr. Ashraf Ezzat:Egypt: the Uprising, the Treason and Israel

The dictator- people relationship is primarily of fear and submission. You take that fear and submission out of the equation and the relation is redefined again and so disturbed to the verge of uprising.

 History has always been one of my passions. Every passing moment has in a way contributed to our history on earth but only some of those moments made a change of history.

From the monotheism of Akhenaten in ancient Egypt to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, from the medieval crusades to the war in Iraq and from the French revolution to the fall of Berlin wall, those are some of the crucial moments that made a change of history and shaped our life.

 Of all the uprisings and revolutions I’ve read about in history books, I never thought I’d be experiencing one in my life time. What is taking place right now in Egypt is undoubtedly a popular revolution against dictatorship that has been stifling the Egyptians for decades now. I myself have been a living witness to many years of corruption by that dictatorship but what Egyptians have actually lived and endured during the last days in Egypt was beyond anybody’s imagination. What the whole world is witnessing now in Egypt is not only a regime crumbling down but a whole age of authoritarianism in the Arab world fading away.

What the ordinary Egyptians have done on Tuesday 25th January is by no means unprecedented, they managed to not only defy the oppression and arrogance of a self serving political regime but they also proved the expectation that never saw them capable of challenging and revolting against dictatorship wrong.

Likewise, the reaction of Mubarak and his thugs of the ruling party-NDP- to this patriotic uprising has also been unprecedented. No one with the least level of conscience and human integrity could have planned and actually carried out such a dirty and shameful scheme.

The uprising started on Tuesday with beautiful and magical scenes of thousands of Egyptians of all walks of life- men and women, old and young and Muslim and Christian- taking to the streets of Cairo and all major cities of Egypt nonviolently chanting out their frustrations and aspirations. On the spot, demonstrators were intercepted and dealt with by what seemed to all viewers around the world as an organized and ruthless army of security forces.

Water cannons, rubber bullets and tear gas canisters were being shot at protestors at will and as soon as they were forced into side streets they were subjected to physical violence and intimidation.

The brutality of the Egyptian regime in the way it was trying to abort this nonviolent uprising and which was transmitted live by international news channels might have come as a shock to a lot of viewers around the world but for Egyptians it seemed rather expected and typical of a regime that turned their life into a dark tunnel of fear and degradation throughout the years.

The police conspiracy and the fall of the president

The police department in any free society is supposed to serve and protect the people and not the other way round. But in dictatorships its role is primarily to look after the dictator in return for privileges and authorities offered to them by the regime.

And as the dictator gets more deluded and paranoid over the years so does his security apparatus of officers and detectives. The dictator- people relationship is primarily of Fear and submission. You take that fear and submission out of the equation and the relation is redefined again and so disturbed to the verge of uprising.

For ordinary Egyptians the ballot posts and the police stations used to be the most unlikely places they wanted to go to for both were directly connected to the deception and might of the regime. The parliamentary and presidential rigged elections never did anything except securing another term of autocratic power to Mubarak and his chosen ring of corrupt politicians. And likewise, police stations only meant one thing to any average Egyptian and that is humiliation and intimidation by the police thugs of officers and small detectives.

You don’t get to call or address any police officer in Egypt by his job title, no, that’s a taboo, you can only address or refer to him as Pasha – a title equivalent to lord in England- which gave any police officer the satisfaction he needed to feel superior and authoritative. Ordinary people answered to the Egyptian police officer anytime – especially under the implementation of Mubarak’s emergency law- while he answered to no one.

Lately the security apparatus has started to use innovative ways of securing and fortifying the grip of the regime over the Egyptians. They started to use criminals, inmates and thugs to intimidate people away from demonstrations and from ballot posts. Whenever came a time for elections or probable rallies the police stations would release all the into-custody drug dealers and robbers under detention and let them infiltrate protestors in rallies or voters heading to ballots centers to scare them off  and even try and physically harm them so that they would refrain from thinking of voting or demonstrating ever again.

This has noticeably been resorted to as a routine and guaranteed approach since 2005 by the Egyptian security high ranking officials and mastered by most of the on field police officers and detectives in the country.

The detectives in almost every police station in Egypt have been regularly taking bribes from outlaws especially drug dealers and robbers in return for police raids intelligence and facilitating their release from detention in case of arrest.

Criminals let loose by the police in Egypt

Criminals and detectives began to act in collaboration and as days went by it seemed that they both were pursuing the same goal of illegal self gain. Moreover people in Egypt began to find it hard to tell the detective from the outlaw except by the police ID card. 

Given that, the police chiefs along with the Egyptian minister of interior, Habib Al Adli while working on standard plan (A) for confronting the protestors of January 25th did not forget to come up with a dirty plan (B)

Plan (A)

The regime knew very well that the thousands of Egyptian protestors wouldn’t have managed to contact each other, organize their movements and galvanize on the concept of uprising without using the internet and especially social media like facebook and twitter so the regime first blocked those social media but that was not enough so they shut down the internet and even the mobile phone text messaging… and as the so called anti-riot forces were desperately trying hard with their gas canisters and rubber bullets  to crush the protestors and disperse them the orders for plan (B) were already underway.

Plan (B)

At the Friday sunset and as the protestors were keeping their ground and bracing for another round of courageous confrontations, the police forces -and all of a sudden -withdrew from the streets to be replaced by small and rather symbolic infantry units of the military.

The protestors cheered on watching the military units and people clustered around the armed vehicles and shook hands with the soldiers but little did they know what the regime had in store for them.

As night was falling over Cairo and major cities of Egypt the police conspiracy or rather the treason was already in play;

  • All police stations around Egypt have become simultaneously deserted; all police officers were given an open home leave until further notice.
  •  The police stations were left with detectives and soldiers in charge without superior command and moreover with instructions to discreetly let the criminals loose.
  • In few hours almost every police station in the country and every major city police headquarter had been looted and set on fire.
  • A number of jail breaks began to occur the same night and the following day.
  •  Many incidents of looting and breaking entries began to be heard of around most cities of Egypt and reported by the state television.
  • A nationwide panic and intimidation have begun to sweep across Egypt.
  • With the absence of security forces the people began to form community watches to patrol the streets all night protecting properties and their loved one from possible attacks by the looters
  • The overwhelming sense of insecurity has led a considerable fraction of the Egyptian people to look at the uprising from a pain-benefit perspective and be inclined to see an end to it one way or another and to even side with Mubarak who seemed to them as the only option to guarantee the security and stability they have sacrificed.

And this exactly what plan (B) has been all about, only people who fell for it never managed to figure out the conspiracy behind. The security vacuum that scared most Egyptians was nothing more than another dirty scheme by the Mubarak’s regime.

Theoretically speaking the security vacuum that follows any revolt never takes place except after the regime has completely fallen and which has not been the case in the Egyptian uprising. And since the Egyptian regime knew very well that the security vacuum is the thing Egyptians dread most and which could make them reconsider supporting the uprising, so the security high officials thought why not create this premature and fake vacuum just to terrorize the people into abandoning the uprising and to make them clear the streets and stick to their homes.

It seemed like ingenious plan but it was far from being perfect; a lot of the arrested looters proved to be carrying the police identity card and others were using the missing guns of the police stations in a clear indication to the conspiracy been carried out by the police, not to mention hundreds of escaped inmates whom were easily captured again but only after they have been filmed and put on farcical display on the state TV for the provocation of more fear and respect for the might of the regime

Fear is the name of the game in these days of unrest in Egypt during which the regime will do absolutely anything to cling to power including all sorts of deception of the masses. The police dirty conspiracy is far from over as we can watch now the armies of thugs and criminals being depolyed by the interior ministry high officials to start the violent confrontations with the peacefull protestors in a desperate polt to abort the  Lotus uprising in Egypt.

Israel watching the uprising in Egypt

Military vehicles on the Egyptian streets

The world interest in the crisis in Egypt has a lot of reasons. Egypt is undoubtedly a pivotal nation in the Arab world and the Middle East; it is the main American ally in the Arab world and the recipient of the second largest American military aid. But most importantly because it is the biggest Arab neighbor country to the state of Israel with which it signed a peace treaty in 1979 after a long history of animosity and military confrontations.

On Sunday night, 30th January and on one of the live news shows that was discussing the uprising in Egypt, Omar Afifi, a former Egyptian police captain told BBC Arabic TV that – according to his resources in Washington- there is a close cooperation now between Mubarak and Israel as to how to control and subdue this uprising. Even more, he said that a cargo of special automatic sniper rifles were being shipped from Israel to the Egyptian internal security forces to be used to take down the leaders of the protestors in case the demonstrations were growing in number and getting out of control.

Any way and despite the fact that the veracity of those statements remain hard to verify but it goes without saying that Israel is  watching this dramatic scenario of a close ally to Israel going down with great concern.

Israel enjoys a 30 years old peace treaty with Egypt– Camp David accords- during which Mubarak has kept not only its terms carefully observed but he also kept quiet borders with Israel and in a great way has helped Israel to tighten its siege on Gaza.

America and Israel are now contemplating the post-Mubarak scenario with fears that the shift of Egypt toward democracy and free elections would bring Islamists to power.

After almost 30 years of supporting a dictatorship in Egypt they hate to see another Iran or Hamas on the western borders of the Zionist state of Israel.

But that is unlikely to happen, not for the sake of Israel, but because Egypt is a country rich not only in history and culture but in its people and educated elites who never showed any inclination to adopt extreme trends of thinking or behavior and that is one sure thing that history tells us.

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?
