Egypt: Detention Centers for the Muslim Brotherhood?

According to reports, although it sounds more like rumours, the Egyptian Army Chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is said to have the plan to imprison not only some hundred members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, but to imprison thousands of members of the Muslim Brotherhood in so-called detention centres that are already under construction and as said, it sounds more like a rumour than serious news.

Thus, it is not a huge surprise that this news is based on a new article published by Debka, which is known to often just to act as an useful tool for Israeli politics and goals. The article by Debka says that some “sources in the Middle East” would believe that the Egyptian Army Chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi knows that the overthrowing of the Egyptian Islamist President Mohamed Morsi was just the first step in a long process for the Egyptian military in the country.

This alleged process and plan shall include the rewriting of the Egyptian constitution, which would be no real surprise and just normal – for example, the new articles in the constitution, added when the Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamed Morsi was President in Egypt, allowed the people of Egypt to go to Syria and to fight against the secular Syrian nation and people – without the fears of any punishment later when they will come back to Egypt.

Further steps of this alleged process shall include the establishment of an interim administration and the conduction of presidential and parliamentarian elections within the upcoming six months in Egypt.

Meanwhile, the ousted Egyptian Islamist President Mohamed Morsi is still held “preventively” and if the article by Debka is to believe, what is questionable a little bit, at least, then the Egyptian Army Chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi plans the mass arrest of thousands of members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the big cities of Egypt as well as in the countryside of the state. In addition, those detention centres for the then imprisoned members of the Muslim Brotherhood are said to be already under constructions in some areas of Egypt.

Of course, this reminds us of the acts by Gamal Abdel Nasser (in the fities) and Anwar Sadat (in the seventies) and it would trigger and face a direct move by Washington and other US-led or supported governments around the globe. The article also states that Egyptian Army Chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi would enjoy the support of the Persian Gulf States that are led by the totalitarian dictatorship of Saudi Arabia.

Another measure included in this alleged plan is said to be a general crackdown on about 10,000 armed Salafists on Egyptian soil and, at least, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi knows the Sinai Peninsula very well and the Egyptian army would be able to carry out such huge operations.

Finally, it is questionable whether someone can believe the information and article by Debka. It is always a 50 to 50 chance (some would raise other numbers) that Debka is either publishing the truth or just publishing information in order to support the Israeli goals and plans. This might sound strange, but I am just able to tell you like it is.

  1. Any group which throws young boys and mail men off the roofs of buildings to their deaths, and commits the abominations for which the Muslim Brotherhood is know deserve to be detained only in graves. Mubarak knew this, Saddam Hussein knew this, Colonel Gaddafi knew this. Muslim Brotherhood has proven itself to be a scourge upon the earth. Expunge them.
