Muslim Brotherhood Moves To Form Egypt Unity Gov't Without Mubarak

Opposition group excludes reigning President's National Democratic Party from talks; Mohammed ElBaradei: I have been mandated by the people.
The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest opposition group,is in talks with other anti-government figures to form a national unity government without President Hosni Mubarak, a group official told DPA on Sunday.
Although the Muslim Brotherhood is officially banned from running for elections for parliament, some movement members have presented canidates.

Muslim Brotherhood Has Big Head Start

This is beyond interesting.

Watching closely to see how this develops.

Gamal Nasser, a spokesman for the Brotherhood, told DPA that his group was in talks with Mohammed ElBaradei - the former UN nuclear watchdog chief - to form a national unity government without the National Democratic Party of Mubarak.

I had read reports that the current administrations contact with Egypt has some suspicious details.

"Days of Rage" Terrorist Ayers

"Days of Rage" Muslim Brotherhood

Many will dismiss Code Pink out of hand as a fringe liberal group that has little to no influential power.
Yet, that dismissal is easily challenged in learning the facts, the depth of Code Pinks tentacles.

Jodi Evans, a founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink and "bundler" for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, met with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Wednesday.

Code Pink contact with Muslim Brotherhood

Key Members of Muslim Brotherhood Escape From Prision During Riots

'Obama met Muslim Brotherhood members in U.S.'

U.S. President Barack Obama met with members of Egypt's Islamist opposition movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, earlier this year, according to a report in Thursday editions of the Egyptian daily newspaper Almasry Alyoum.

The newspaper reported that Obama met the group's members, who reside in the U.S. and Europe, in Washington two months ago.

I find it ironic that their spokes person shares the name of the former Egyptian president.

Not for a second I think all the protesters, whether they want to form a gov't or not, are involved in the Muslim Brotherhood who has terrorist ties...

This are people like you and me, who are fed up.

You'd have to be a xenomorphic bafoon to believe the reports.

It is ironic.

Egyptian opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei is calling for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down as he leads anti-government demonstrators Sunday.

During an interview on CNN, ElBaradei says that "Mubarak has to leave today."

What will inevitably happen with a majority of movements will happen here; a disorganized, chaotic movement is going to be taken under control by some influential group, and then claim since the beginning it was them behind it all and not people pissed off at being screwed by their government.

I think you're misunderstanding the situation.The "people" are indeed protesting for freedom and human rights, but the Muslim Brotherhood is "hijacking' the situation for their own goals (and since they are a known terrorist organization, I doubt freedom and human rights will be on their agenda if they do indeed take power...)

The best thing Egypt can do right now is call their King back.

It may sound extreme, but they need a strong public figure to counterbalance the islamist, their King would be perfect, the guy live in exile all his life, doesn't seem to have strong ambitions, it could be a good moderate figure.

Exactly. The people are people just like us. They of course want freedom.
However, it looks like they may go from the frying pan into the fire.

To think that Egypts Top Brass is in the U.S. now as we speak...
To think that Egypts military is trained in the U.S.

I am suprised that more people were not aware of the U.S. role in Egypts Military Forces.

The officer corps of Egypt's powerful military has been educated at defense colleges in the United States for 30 years. The Egyptian armed forces have about 1,000 American M1A1 Abrams tanks, which the United States allows to be built on Egyptian soil. Egypt permits the American military to stage major operations from its bases and has always guaranteed the Americans passage through the Suez Canal.

The relationship between the Egyptian and American militaries is, in fact, so close that it was no surprise Friday to find two dozen senior Egyptian military officials at the Pentagon, halfway through an annual week of meetings, lunches and dinners with their American counterparts.

The timing, to find that Egypts top brass is here in the U.S. during this uprising is interesting
to say the least!

No way will the U.S. give up its access to the Suez Canal.

Denial is sweet while it lasts, is it not?

If this plays out the way its looking, this will be a sobering lesson for many.

The brotherhood is the only political organisation LEFT in Egypt. Ergo structure.

Not really who anyone would want as their glorious leaders.

True, the people may not want the end result, but it looks as if it will
be foist upon them.

This is shaping up real fast.

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Backs ElBaradei Role

The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's venerable and controversial Islamic organization, says it has backed Mohamed ElBaradei as the lead spokesman for the country's opposition groups to negotiate further political reforms with the shaky Egyptian government.

The development marks the latest step by the Brotherhood to subordinate its religious goals to what opposition groups are describing as a battle for democracy, in a country run under a state of emergency by President Hosni Mubarak for more than 30 years. It also suggests that the group's once sidelined moderate wing is regaining strength at a time when the movement could emerge as a significant political actor in Egyptian politics.

I would have to agree with you, I think the people have been lured into this.
Its all looking like an agenda here now!

The day before Egyptian security dragged him off to jail last week, Issam El-Erian, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, was in an ebullient mood.

The streets of Cairo were swarming with protesters, many of them young people with no affiliation to his movement. But the challenge they were posing to the regime of Hosni Mubarak, which the Brotherhood has battled for decades, was a source of great satisfaction.

If The Muslim Brotherhood gains power then the whole situation in the Middle East alters dramatically.

Whilst Mubarak's domestic policies were hardly 'democratic' by our standards he wasn't tyrannical and he was a voice for reason in dealings with 'the West' and Israel.

However, he may pay the price for not listening to the concerns of his people and as all too often happens extremists step in to the void and exploit the situation.

I very much doubt The Muslim Brotherhood will be as accommodating.

One thing we outsiders of Egypt must honestly consider:- we have no right to interfere in the governance of a soveriegn nation that Egypt is.

If it is the muslim brotherhood that succeeds in wrestling control of the nation's governance, then it would be only upon the acceptance of the majority.We must then seek common grounds of aspirations and mutual benefits for masses so that all coexist as a community sharng our planet.

But if it is not to be, rest assure, Egyptians are not fools to simply accept any clown into power. They had sacrificed too much to allow such idiots into power and will pay again to ensure they and their future generations put leaders into positions whereby all fellow countrymen will be able to achieve common aspirations in life, regardless of differences, just as their noble act of standing by their christian brothers during the bombing attacks during Christmas.

If not, another revolution will take place, just as the Iranian masses had attempted.

We, on the outside can only give them our encouragement, support and pray for their deliverance from harmm, and press our respective elected legislators to equally give them support on their eve of freedom.

Drastically. Dramactically. Yes.

If this happens, it will set the entire area in opposition to Israel.

And Israel is not going to back down, give up, retreat or any of the above.

"The Americans can tolerate seeing blood shed in Egypt but not see a regime fall in Egypt into the hands of the people," he said.

But while the president does not want to appear to be propping up the old order, officials indicated he was worried a new government dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood or other Islamist groups might not honour the treaty with Israel.

The foreign secretary, William Hague, said it was not up to foreigners to decide who runs Egypt. But he added: "Certainly we would not want to see a government based on the Muslim Brotherhood."

While I agree with your sentiment, its not as if the U.S. has not actually had great influence and to some degree, even control of the situation in Egypt.

We as a people must let them choose yes. But to acknowledge the truth, to think that this situation is just spontaneous, well that is another thing altogether.

And I would have to say that in no way, as a female could I look forward to having Muslim Brotherhood in power as opposed to Mubarak.


This tidbit is highly curious. Does anyone else see this? This was planned ahead of time!

Abdel-Monaem Abdel-Maqsoud, a lawyer representing the Muslim Brotherhood, said 34 members were arrested and taken to a prison north-west of Cairo ahead of last Friday's mass protests. All 34 got away last night, he said, including seven senior leaders
