U.S. IS BEHIND THE FALL OF MUBARAK

Elad Pressman, editor of a major Israeli political
website, was my guest on my radio show and did he have news! The
Daily Telegraph had dug into Wikileaks documents and pieced together
a report that convincingly proves the US was behind the violent

Secret Backing for Rebel Leaders Behind Uprising

The American Embassy in Cairo helped
a young dissident attend a US-sponsored summit for activists in New
York, while working to keep his identity secret from
On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told
that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to
overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic
government in 2011. He has already been arrested by Egyptian
security in connection with the demonstrations and his identity is
being protected by The Daily Telegraph.
The disclosures, contained in previously secret US diplomatic
dispatches released by the
website, show American officials pressed the Egyptian government to
release other dissidents who had been detained by the police.
At least five people were killed in Cairo alone yesterday and 870
injured, several with bullet wounds. Mohamed ElBaradei, the
pro-reform leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner, was placed under
house arrest after returning to Egypt to join the dissidents. Riots
also took place in Suez, Alexandria and other major cities across
The US government has previously been a supporter of Mr Mubarak’s
regime. But the leaked documents show the extent to which America
was offering support to pro-democracy activists in Egypt while
publicly praising Mr Mubarak as an important ally in the Middle
East. In a secret diplomatic dispatch, sent on December 30 2008,
Margaret Scobey, the US Ambassador to Cairo, recorded that
opposition groups had allegedly drawn up secret plans for “regime
change” to take place before elections, scheduled for September this
The memo, which Ambassador Scobey sent to the US Secretary of State
in Washington DC, was marked “confidential” and headed: “April 6
activist on his US visit and regime change in Egypt.”
It said the activist claimed “several opposition forces” had “agreed
to support an unwritten plan for a transition to a parliamentary
democracy, involving a weakened presidency and an empowered prime
minister and parliament, before the scheduled 2011 presidential
elections”. The embassy’s source said the plan was “so sensitive it
cannot be written down”.
Ambassador Scobey questioned whether such an “unrealistic” plot
could work, or ever even existed. However, the documents showed that
the activist had been approached by US diplomats and received
extensive support for his pro-democracy campaign from officials in
Washington. The embassy helped the campaigner attend a “summit” for
youth activists in New York, which was organized by the US State
Cairo embassy officials warned Washington that the activist’s
identity must be kept secret because he could face “retribution”
when he returned to Egypt. He had already allegedly been tortured
for three days by Egyptian state security after he was arrested for
taking part in a protest some years earlier.
The protests in Egypt are being driven by the April 6 youth
movement, a group on Facebook that has attracted mainly young and
educated members opposed to Mr Mubarak. The group has about 70,000
members and uses social networking sites to orchestrate protests and
report on their activities. The documents released by WikiLeaks
reveal US Embassy officials were in regular contact with the
activist throughout 2008 and 2009, considering him one of their most
reliable sources for information about human rights abuses.
suggested that I investigate who was behind Mohammed ElBaradei. Look
what I discovered! Just
a few months ago, Mohammed ElBaradei was paraded on the front cover
of the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) rag, Foreign Affairs, with
a headline asking if he could be Egypt's savior. What uncanny
foresight, for on the second day of Egyptian protests he showed up
in Cairo and was named as the
negotiator of The Muslim Brotherhood.
So where did he come from? It turns out from the board of an NGO run
by CFR muckrakers George
Soros and Zbigniew Brzezinski.
And then, we have The Muslim Brotherhood
meeting with Obama. From the Egyptian press: 'Obama met Muslim
Brotherhood members in U.S.'
- Against the regime, the opposition groups -
of which there are at least ten - are just as hamstrung by their
failure to produce a leader able to stand up and challenge the
president. For lack of any representative figure, they picked
the retired nuclear watchdog director Dr. Mohamed ElBaradi to
speak for them in negotiations over the transfer of power.
Hardly anyone in Egypt knows him: He is better known outside the
country having spent many years abroad. Yet, at the same time,
ElBaradei sits on the board of a Soros/Brzezinski foundation.

and you will see that the Egyptian clashes have hit surprisingly
close to home for them. That's because none other than their own
sitting on their board of trustees, is the self-proclaimed
leader of the unrest unfolding across the streets of Cairo. The
International Crisis Group's recent condemnation of ElBaradei's
detention and admission of his membership amongst "the Group" is
accompanied by calls for the government to stop using violence
against the protesters.

As for Israel, which
should be terrified of a potential Muslim Brotherhood government,
who else is pushing for one but President Shimon "Mad Dog" Peres?
Mubarak appointed Peres' buddy Omar Suleiman (search for pics of the
two all over the internet) as his Vice-President, meaning upcoming
interim President when Hosni climbs down from the post. And look who
Peres got to say what Peres can't, his rabbi and Vatican
representative, David "Mad Man" Rosen:
- 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.
Rosen, a prominent commentator on religious affairs, has said that
EU diplomats should start talking to Islamic faith leaders in Egypt
in order to keep the revolution on a peaceful path.
Israel's President thinks it would be terrific to begin negotiations
with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Israel's issues are the same as Egypt's but are hidden behind a
charade of democracy. This year's figures reveal that 25% of all
Israelis, including over 850,000 children, live beneath the poverty
line. The middle class has all but disappeared at 15%, leaving a
vast number of poor and unemployed to be ruled by a tiny group of
immensely wealthy oligarchs. If you thought
Cairo had a big turnout for its protests, Israel with 1/5 of Cairo's
population, drew over 200,000 to protest the Oslo "peace" and the
evacuation of Gaza's Jews...to no avail. The government had flipped
the organizers with names like Wallerstein and Leiberman and the
protests were harmless steam blowing.
It's time Israel joined the Middle East. Get those 200,000 back, led
by homeless Gazan Jews and joined by all who live in daily fear of
the Shabak (Secret Service), the police, the courts and get them to
the President's House to physically oust Shimon Peres from his
After that, on to the Knesset.
