Of Philanthropists and Monsters: Rockin’ the Casbah

Further to my article on the situation in Egypt this morning, and my 2007 article on the annual Cairo Conference and its ties with the Socialist Workers Party which I just re-posted, I am cross-posting an article below by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton. In it she zeros in on… you guessed it, George Soros’ connection to the situation in Egypt…

Riots. We are seeing them erupt throughout the Middle East everywhere we look: Tunisia, Algeria, Albania, Yemen, Jordan and of course, Egypt. And in the wings, drooling with horrific glee, Iran is pushing and prodding for a Muslim uprising to oust the enemies of Islam – primarily the US and Israel – using their Muslim Brotherhood henchmen and utilizing Hezbollah and Hamas. And Iran’s chosen vessel for Egypt –Mohamed ElBaradei, who, until a day or two ago, was under house arrest.

You remember ElBaradei right? He’s the tool for the IAEA who kept giving blessings to Iran and their nuclear program. But I’m sure he’s a good guy – he has a Nobel Peace Prize just like Obama does. Wait a minute… On second thought, I guess that designation is pretty much a joke currently. I’m also sure it is a huge coincidence that George Soros and ElBaradei both sit on the Board of trustees for the International Crisis Group.

By all accounts, Mubarak is a vicious dictator who routinely uses torture and murder to achieve his goals. The brutal Egyptian police are the feared enforcers for Mubarak and now they have all but disappeared from the streets, leaving Egyptians to protect themselves from roving gangs and militant Muslims who were freed from the prisons by radical Islamists. He needs to go, but G-d forbid he is replaced by Islamofascists. Since the Muslim Brotherhood is approximately 20% of the rioters and the Coptic Christians are about 20%, there is hope for a free government to be put in place. But much is in doubt…

…Is Soros somewhere behind this lurking with another of his regime collapse scenarios? Every piece of information and evidence I see adds up to it. Here’s a refresher on his 5 step plan for a regime collapse:

  • Step One: Form a shadow government using humanitarian aid as cover.
  • Step Two: Control the airwaves. Fund existing radio and TV outlets and take control over them or start your own outlets.
  • Step Three: Destabilize the state, weaken the government and build an anti-government kind of feeling in the country. You exploit an economic crisis or take advantage of an existing crisis — pressure from the top and the bottom. This will allow you to weaken the government and build anti-government public sentiment.
  • Step Four: Provoke an election crisis. You wait for an election and during the election, you cry voter fraud.
  • Step Five: Take power. You stage massive demonstrations, civil disobedience, sit-ins, general strikes and you encourage activism. You promote voter fraud and tell followers what to do through your radio and television stations. Incitement and violence are conducted at this stage…

Updated: The Socialist Roots of the Egyptian Protests

…Based on the people involved in the Tunisian movement, the April 6th Youth Movement/Mahalla Strike, and those involved in the creation of the January 25th protests, it’s clear that the current “revolution” in Africa has more to do with socialism than it does about Islamic fundamentalism, although the latter is playing a strong secondary role within some of the factions. Socialism has very deep roots in the Egypt and the Middle East going back to the era of Salama Moussa who wrote the first Arabic book on socialism in 1912 titled, “Al-Ishtirākiyya (The Socialism)”. Moussa also helped form Egypt’s Socialist Party (later to be renamed the Communist Party in 1923) in 1921 alongside the likes of foreigner Joseph Rosenthal.

It seems as if there’s no real alternative to dictators or socialist organizations in Egypt and many other countries in the Middle East. The better question to ask is, “Who isn’t a socialist in Egypt?” If you remove a dictator there, you’re bound to end up with some flavor of socialism as a result. Capitalism is evil to Islamic socialists because it’s of the Western non-believer. Socialism is allowed to flourish to a degree, but under dictators it’s mostly just a bone to throw to the masses as appeasement. Arab socialism is different in some ways to the old Soviet communism because of the Islamic influence rejecting the Soviet tenets that were incompatible with the worldview of Muslims. As evidenced by the poll earlier in this post, many of the secular leftists in this region accept Sharia as being generally beneficial.

Where does George Soros fit into all this? Or does he? I engaged one of the Egyptian socialist activists on Twitter to learn more about the origin of the protests. When I asked who was originally behind the movement, he linked me to GlobalVoices. You can see the tweet here. Who funds GlobalVoices? Soros’ Open Society Institute, of course. It’s interesting that Soros-funded GlobalVoices’ January 25 protest timeline starts with a post on the 23rd asking if the January 25th protests were going to be Egypt’s Intifada… [Emphasis CAJ]
