Egypt Dictators Use Rape as Weapon with Obama’s Support

Egypt Dictators Use Rape as Weapon with Obama’s Support

We are a nation of laws.

– Barack Obama

Barack Obama refuses to stop illegally arming and funding (among other horrors) Egypt’s military junta dictatorship. It is against the law to aid juntas and regimes that consistently violate human rights.

One year ago, the Egyptian military dictatorship seized power in a massacre that Human Rights Watch now refers to as “Egypt’s Tienanmen“, although, HRW points out, the Egyptian massacre was worse.

HRW also characterized the massacre as “systematic” and “a planned operation implicating officials at the very top of the Egyptian government.”

This Egyptian military dictatorship, as Amnesty International reports, is using rape as a weapon, against people such as students:

Among the methods of torture employed are techniques previously used by state security during Mubaraks rule. These include the use of electric shocks, rape, handcuffing detainees and suspending them from open doors. Another hanging method, known as the grill , involves handcuffing the detainees hands and legs to an iron rod and suspending the rod between two opposite chairs until the detainees legs go numb. Security forces then start using electric shocks on the persons legs.

One of the most shocking cases documented by Amnesty International was that of’M.R.S , 23, a student arrested in February 2014 near Nasr City in Cairo. He said he was held for 47 days and was tortured and raped during his interrogation. He is currently out of prison but the case is still pending.

They cut my shirt, blindfolded me with it and handcuffed me from behind they beat me with batons all over my body, particularly on the chest, back and face Then they put two wires in my left and right little fingers and gave me electric shocks four or five times, he said.

He also gave a horrifying account of how he was sexually assaulted and raped.

The national security officer caught my testicle and started to squeeze it I was screaming from the pain and bent my legs to protect my testicles then he inserted his fingers in my anus he was wearing something plastic on his fingers he repeated this five times, he said.

He also reported being beaten on the penis with a stick. He was then raped repeatedly by one or more security guards before being forced to sing a song in support of the Egyptian army Teslam Al Ayadi.

After the coup, Obama, as an attempt to quiet a horrified, onlooking world, suspended a small percentage of the almost two billion dollars a year, mostly weapons, that he sends to Egypt, but soon, unable to resist, he sent more. The aid that he kept flowing consisted of cash and small arms, exactly what was needed most to facilitate “Egypt’s Tienanmen”, which, thanks to Obama, is partly our Tienanmen.

Contrary to what media outlets like the Washington Post tried to lead their readers to believe, the USA never cut off aid to the raping junta. It is perfectly understandable why anyone attempting to paint his or her own government in a falsely positive light, as the author of the above-referenced Post article did, would try to deceive readers into thinking their government does not openly and directly aid gangs using rape as a weapon.

However, as Amnesty International points out above, above, the previous Mubarak dictatorship in Egypt, which enjoyed massive US support from 1979 until it was overthrown in 2011 more than thirty years later, also used rape as a weapon.

On international television, Barack Obama refused to “label” Mubarak, not as a mass rapist and torturer, but simply as “authoritarian”. Instead, Obama painted Mubarak as a “stalwart ally”, and, regardless of some “criticisms”, a “force for stability and good”.

Obama refused to label the merciless torturer because, Obama said, “I tend not to use labels for folks”, and “the United States’ job is not to lecture”.

As Obama lectured Muammar Gaddafi in a speech that foreshadowed an illegal US/Al Qaeda joint attack on Libya as well as Gaddafi’s gang lynching, Obama labeled Gaddafi, who fought against South African apartheid while the USA strongly supported it and got Nelson Mandela imprisoned, as “iron fisted”, “brutal”, “illegitimate”, “brutal” (again), “intimidating”, “repressive”, “repressive” (again), a “brute”, a “sponsor of terror“, “merciless”, someone who “would commit atrocities”, and so on for another few pages of lecturing.

Obama also labels in similar terms many other leaders he wants to kill.

He labels countless people as “suspects”, and executes them with rockets and missiles on that basis (though, in fairness, he does admit that “no country on earth would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders”).

And in Africa, he supported a terrorist group implicated by the UN for mass rape.

Like Obama, Hillary Clinton preferred to label the torturing rapist Mubarak in positive terms, saying she “really consider[ed] President and Mrs. Mubarak to be friends of my family.”

Since we know the US government supports and commits any level of criminal depravity, we know acts of criminal depravity are not the reason the USA decides to illegally attack and kill people in countries around the world.

Therefore, to understand what we are living under, we must always study the actual reasons for these attacks: maintenance and expansion of the biggest empire in world history, which wants us to believe that “democracy” is:

  • Brutal, militarized police repression
  • Our taxes going towards mass murder, torture, rape, and never-ending military aggression (the supreme international crime)
  • The world’s biggest prison population in size and per capita
  • Statistically insignificant impact on public policy for average citizens:

Princetons Martin Gilens and Northwesterns Benjamin Page find, in the most comprehensive study of the topic to date:

the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.

And last week, Dr. Noam Chomsky, American professor emeritus of linguistics at MIT, philosopher, cognitive scientist, logician, political commentator and activist, author of over 100 books, eighth most cited scholar in history, and voted “world’s top public intellectual”, reminded us:

…theres something we have to remember about the United States: Its not a democracy; its a plutocracy. Theres study after study that comes out in mainstream academic political science which shows what we all know or ought to know, that political decisions are made by a very small sector of extreme privilege and wealth, concentrated capital. For most of the population, their opinions simply dont matter in the political system. Theyre essentially disenfranchised.

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.

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?
