The opinion piece by Peter Oborne is so skewed it deserves immediate correction due to its importance.
Let us those living in Egypt highlight the following for your readers:
It is most difficult for Mr Oborne to understand Egypt and what is going on in a brief visit. Mr Oborne was wrong in the summer of 2011 when he hailed the “Arab Spring”, which never materialized and wrong now by claiming that what Egypt is doing will cost the west a price.
– Al Qaeda was born by the direct support of the US for Osama bin Laden and his mujaheddin in their directed fight in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union. Zawahiri broke the law in Egypt and when released left to join Al Qaeda.
– Protesting is not punishable by jail. Breaking the law is punishable by jail. A big difference. In the UK to protest you need to get approval by the concerned authorities. In Egypt you need to notify the authorities. If you don’t and protest, throw Molotov bombs and destroy public and private properties, you go to jail just as you would in the UK!
– Interesting that Mr Oborne makes no mention of Morsi and his gang of fascist brotherhood usurping power by a fabricated constitution, banning 17000 Egyptian’s from travelling during their rule, arresting 7200 Egyptian’s and holding them without trial, pardoning 1300 convicted terrorists, denying women and minorities their rights and blackmailing the business community.
– Ansar Beit Al Maqdas is a front for the Brotherhood Mr Oborne. Please check your facts as we assume this is an innocent slip, is n’t?.
– Brotherhood meetings now take place in London where the Brotherhood HQ is and remains giving an organisation that has a secret para military arm, secret funding and has assassinated 5 political figures before including President Sadat – a legitimacy they do not deserve!
– “Trumped up charges“!! Well well Mr Oborne, judge and jury you may claim. Have patience and allow the course of justice take place.
– We wonder what would London police do if for 44 days a group of violent protesters camped in Trafalgar Square and in bull horns incited violence, hate and sectarian killing plus destroyed public and private property in addition to accumulating weapons.
Your story telling about Zawahiri is so fictional, it deserves an Alice in Wonderland script. Never did the Zawahiri’s of this world nor the Brotherhood want democracy, otherwise they would not have followed the policy of ” if you are not one of us you are not to be with us” during their rule of one vote one man one time.
Britain and the US need to realize that Egypt’s battle with the Brotherhood is an existential battle. The Brotherhood had 88 seats in Parliament in 2005-10. But their goal was fascist autocratic rule under the umbrella of religion. In one year they turned the vast majority of the Egyptian people against them something even Mubarak did not achieve in 30 years of rule!
Lastly Mr Oborne, if you really believe what you said “since the Brotherhood continues to demonstrate its faith in western concepts of justice and democracy” Britain should support them. We believe you are better served to go and spend time with Zawahiri Chief of Al Qaeda and his terrorist (a word you avoided to use) colleagues to learn about their democratic ways.
In conclusion, we wish you to know that your articles title should have changed a bit from “We may all pay a price for the crushing of democracy in Egypt” to a realistic one based on facts ” We will pay a heavy price if Egypt fails in crushing the terrorist Brotherhood organisation”.
Are these the terrorists you are supporting and calling peaceful protesters? Are you challenging 33 million Egyptian uprising from 21/6 to 3/7/2013 revolted against a fascist regime Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization?
