The anti-Marxist and anti-Trotskyist group called www.wsws.org is telling its readers lies about what is happening in Egypt.
The lies are contained in the following paragraphs which we on themarxistblog cull from their very latest article
For its part, the US-funded Egyptian military does not yet feel itself strong enough to directly suppress the protests. It therefore prefers to play the role of a kingmaker and arbiter, working out its strategy in close coordination with the US. On Monday General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, reportedly spoke to his Egyptian counterpart, General Sedki Sobhi.
The very same day, the Egyptian Armed Forces issued a statement giving the political parties a 48-hour ultimatum “as a last chance to bear the historical burden that the nation is currently facing,” to “reconcile and end the current crisis.”
The all-party coalition envisioned by the military—bringing together the MB, the main liberal parties, former Mubarak officials and possibly some minor pseudo-left groups as a fig-leaf—would serve to delegitimize protests and give the military time to prepare a more violent crackdown.
These aims are shared by Washington. US imperialism is frightened by the prospect that the Egyptian working class will emerge in an open confrontation with the weakened Egyptian state, threatening to undermine the entire imperialist set-up of the Middle East—in which Egypt, with its deep ties to the US and to Israel, plays a crucial role.
Titled…The Egyptian Revolution and the crisis of revolutionary leadership
Perspectives, 2 July 2013
Now consider the contrast when you read what Pamela Geller who does not claim to be a socialist, or Marxist, or anything except freedom fighter, wrote about this revolutionary situation in Egypt yesterday
And still the Muslim Brotherhood stooge in the White House plants his foot next to Morsi’s on the neck of the Egyptian people.
Obama cited Morsi ‘s 13 million votes for his unqualified support of these vicious thugs. But now a grass-roots opposition group called “Tamarod” – or “Rebel” — claims to have 22 million signatures on a petition demanding that Morsi step down and allow new elections.
Apparently, President Obama is unmoved. “The best President Obama could muster Monday was a tepid call for ‘restraint.'” There was no statement of support for the protesters, but Obama did make a point of saying that Morsi had been democratically elected. “There’s more work to be done to create the conditions in which everybody feels that their voices are heard, and that the government is responsive and truly representative,” he said.
The President of the United States has always been a champion of freedom; we must navigate through uncharted waters when the current President of the United States is an enemy of freedom.
THE LIE IN THE WSWS
There are many, that is more than one single lie in the first quote above by wsws.
But this one is key. When Dempsey rang Sobhi it was not to instruct Sobhi and the Egyptian Military TO DO ANYTHING, but it was to get Sobhi to draw back, to trim his sails.
In other words the US was INTERVENING ON BEHALF OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD in Egypt and AGAINST THE ARMY.
Somehow in the most pernicious way the wsws has managed to turn everything on its head.
Obama is not opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Obama is on the side of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama went to Egypt in June 2009 as his very first trip abroad after being elected.
There Obama insisted on The Muslim Brotherhood attending his conference in Cairo University, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS A MOVEMENT BANNED BY MUBARAK.
That was the open door being provided by Obama to The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
Islam is a basket case and can solve nothing. It just becomes the Fascist Movement which sticks the crisis of capitalism onto the masses.
In the above extract from the wsws article we hear them saying about the army:
QUOTE…It therefore prefers to play the role of a kingmaker and arbiter, working out its strategy in close coordination with the US
The feeling you get from this is that the army is the danger, that the army is being backed by the US.
In fact it is the Fascist Muslim Brotherhood of Morsi which is the danger and it is the Fascists behind Morsi who were and are backed by Obama.
Thus Dempsey is not behind the Egyptian Army at all. Dempsey is behind Morsi and is telling the Egyptian Military to do nothing AGAINST the Muslim Brotherhood.
Dempsey is telling this Egyptian General
Lay off the Muslim Brotherhood. Work to defuse the situation. Help the Muslim Brotherhood to escape from the anger of the masses
THE VERY OPPOSITE OF THE WSWS REMARKS. THEY ARE SIMPLY LIARS.
As we keep repeating the US Imperialism and all the other Imperialisms in the world are in league with the Muslim Brotherhood.
The same is happening in England and London, where on Saturday the British State and London police arrest Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll of the EDL, in order to protect the Sharia Law set-up in Tower Hamlets
More on this as we go forward but themarxistblog is sure that the wsws, swp, workers liberty are not Marxist, not even left, groups at all.
They are Antisemitic (hate Israel) facilitators of Islam and Sharia.
