Egyptian Foreign Ministry Says Obama's Words Inciting Violence

The Egyptian foreign ministry appears to be rejecting President Obama's call for an immediate transition from the government of President Hosni Mubarak -- and says that such calls are inciting violence.
"What foreign parties are saying about 'a period of transition beginning immediately' in Egypt is rejected," said foreign ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki, adding that such calls "inflame the internal situation in Egypt." In fact a lot of countries are blaming Obama for the fires in their streets. It will be hard for the MSM to ignore. But I'm sure they will give it a fighting chance. Things are turning south fast in the Middle East and north Africa. The EU is on fire. It seems that apologies didn't get us anything. At least he tried. It seems everything that man touches turns to flames. I'm sure the Democrats wish he was a Republican. Just like they wish they could blame the health care bill on Republicans.

  1. Sometimes its important to know when to keep your mouth shut. Especially when you are in a damned if you do and damned if you don’t situation.

    Here is an excerpt from a breaking story at USA Today:

    The Egyptian foreign ministry appears to be rejecting President Obama’s call for an immediate transition from the government of President Hosni Mubarak — and says that such calls are inciting violence.

    “What foreign parties are saying about ‘a period of transition beginning immediately’ in Egypt is rejected,” said foreign ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki, adding that such calls “inflame the internal situation in Egypt.”


    The situation is putting the Egyptian military in a position that they may have to force Mubarak out of office sooner rather than later. Most observers don’t see the military willing to fire on its own people. The situation is spinning out of control today.

    The statement from the Egyptian Ministry underscores the degree of extreme volatility and pressure that is now placed on the Mubarak. Expect this to come to a head on Friday the presumed deadline when El Baredi, the only serious contender, has insinuated that the current administration step down and presumably leave the country.

  2. Just two days after Mohamed ElBaradei declared that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was not an extremist organization and that any comparisons to extremist groups are “totally bogus,” reports are surfacing that high ranking members of this peaceful group are wishing that the citizens of Egypt would prepare for war with Israel.

    “A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt told the Arabic-language Iranian news network Al-Alam on Monday that he would like to see the Egyptian people prepare for war against Israel, according to the Hebrew-language business newspaper Calcalist.”

    Muhammad Ghannem reportedly told Al- Alam that the Suez Canal should be closed immediately, and that the flow of gas from Egypt to Israel should cease “in order to bring about the downfall of the Mubarak regime.” He added that “the people should be prepared for war against Israel,” saying the world should understand that “the Egyptian people are prepared for anything to get rid of this regime.”
