The Egypt Unrest: Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood

The following is a report from a STRATFOR source in Hamas. Hamas, which formed in Gaza as an outgrowth of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood (MB), has an interest in exaggerating its role and coordination with the MB in this crisis. The following information has not been confirmed. Nonetheless, there is a great deal of concern building in Israel and the United States in particular over the role of the MB in the demonstrations and whether a political opening will be made for the Islamist organization in Egypt.

 

The Egyptian police are no longer patrolling the Rafah border crossing into Gaza. Hamas armed men are entering into Egypt and are closely collaborating with the MB. The MB has fully engaged itself in the demonstrations, and they are unsatisfied with the dismissal of the Cabinet. They are insisting on a new Cabinet that does not include members of the ruling National Democratic Party.

Security forces in plainclothes are engaged in destroying public property in order to give the impression that many protesters represent a public menace. The MB is meanwhile forming people’s committees to protect public property and also to coordinate demonstrators’ activities, including supplying them with food, beverages and first aid.

  1. This article is what I mean by the Obama administration NOT being a First Responder on this with PROVISIONS HUMAN NEEDS RIGHT NOW Fly in the Supplies , air drop them if need be .
    We are Losing the Message and the rage Against the USA is only growing every second Our Government just sits by and does nothing but Phone calls and TV appearances .

    Obama is Losing the MESSAGE READ THIS IN our Arab Alliance News Paper !!!! ACTION SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS and this is a Critical Point of action is needed by the USA if we want to maintain some sort of positions in this transition . people cannot peacefully transition themselves without Basic Needs and the gap between their access on demand can mean the difference between the Radicals gaining power in the region or Moderates . Everyone needs to Scream Obama get with it NOW from every corner of the WORLD

    Controlling the Message is Dangerous In Egypt right Now because to fill a Vacuum one Must let All forms Of Free Speech into the public square so rational thinking can be understood .
    Freedom of Peaceful expression should be allowed , and to shut off all speech is an attempt to control the intent .

    This is dangerous because we don’t know who has control of the message or what is flying under the radar promising the MOON …. FOOD , FUEL Protection , these are things FREE speech needs to be competing with , Where the Heck is the USA on this we should be hearing massive support coming out of the Washington DC area at some degree , primarily the Whitehouse , Hello , are they sitting still on the Megaphone making it Clear as Obama likes to say all the time about WHAT the USA is GOING TO MOVE INTO THE REGION TO HELP WITH VITAL NEEDS AS BASIC HUMAN NEEDS GO UN SUPPLIED WHILE THE PROTEST RAGES ON ??

    WHOEVER WINS THIS POWER VACUUM IT WILL BE THOSE WHO COME WITH THE CREATURE COMFORTS , HELLO WHO IS IN CHARGE OF US DIPLOMATIC AFFAIRS REGARDING THESE CONTINGENCY PLANS ??

    WE BEEN 10 YEARS NOW WITH CIVIL UNREST AND DEALING WITH UPRISINGS AND WE ARE SILENT AT A TIME LIKE THIS , ONLY STATING WE SUPPORT PEACEFUL PROTESTS WHILE THE INFRASTRUCTURE BREAKS DOWN ???
