    May Allah forgive his shortcomings and accept his martyrdom.

    Egypt's former President Mohamed Morsi has died after appearing in court in Cairo, according to state media.
    The 67-year-old died after fainting during the court session in the Egyptian capital on Monday, state TV reported.
    "He was speaking before the judge for 20 minutes then became very animated and fainted. He was quickly rushed to the hospital where he later died," a judicial source said.

    Like to share. Long but very enlightening article.



    In 2011, I travelled to Cairo and met Mohammed Badie. Today, he sleeps on the floor of an Egyptian prison cell, sentenced to death

    Since my release from Guantanamo, I have found myself naturally interested in the stories of political prisoners around the world.

    I’ve met colleagues of Nelson Mandela who were imprisoned on Robben Island; Irish Republicans who took part in hunger strikes with Bobby Sands; Palestinians who were imprisoned with their family members; and former prisoners in Libya, Syria and Egypt who spent decades in prison and emerged as leaders.

    One of these men is the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Badie.

    Rest here

    Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi says allegations of corruption against him and his army generals amount to defamation.

    An Egyptian businessman who worked as a military contractor for 15 years, has posted videos online accusing el-Sisi of wasting millions of dollars of public money on palaces, villas, and hotels.

    At a Cairo youth summit, the president said the Egyptian army had been ‘defamed’ but did not directly address corruption claims against himself.




    Sisi playing the blame game.

    'Vital security interest': Why Israel is quietly rooting for Egypt's Sisi

    Former intelligence officials say Israel is discreetly backing the Egyptian leader to survive a wave of protest, but dare not do so publicly for fear of further undermining him


    Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is not the only one playing down the outbreak of protests against his rule. So too are politicians and media in neighbouring Israel.

    The lack of coverage of last month’s demonstrations in Cairo and other cities, and the crackdown that has followed them, can be easily dismissed as a product of the Israeli media’s current preoccupation with domestic politics and the saga of the continuing efforts to form a new government.

    International coverage, meanwhile, has remained focused on Iran, and continuing tensions in the Gulf.

    Yet, talking off the record, members of the Israeli parliament uncharacteristically reluctant to speak publicly on the issue say there is deep concern about the future of a man who is often labelled as “the most pro-Israeli Egyptian leader ever”.

    They also recognise that any Israeli expression of concern to that effect is bound to do more harm than good to a leader already criticised in parts of the Arab world for being exactly that.

    Open cooperation

    In the years since Sisi seized power in 2013, the Egyptian and Israeli governments have moved from working tacitly together to open cooperation, a relationship reinforced by photo ops featuring Sisi with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    “I certainly hope Sisi survives this round of protests,” said Zvi Magen, a former high-ranking officer in Israeli military intelligence and now a senior research fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS).

    “Even if some define Sisi as a dictator who came to power by use of force, he is a more positive player than his predecessors," Magen told Middle East Eye.

    “He, unlike Mubarak, is the strongman post-2011 Tahrir Square, and he knows where it can lead. He is bound to be much more cautious.”

    Magen said it did not appear that the situation in Egypt would lead to “full-blown violence” and that Israeli military intelligence and the government would wait to see how it developed.

    Intelligence sharing

    But he also said Israel could help Sisi discreetly by providing him with intelligence.

    “We do not have an opinion as to what the Egyptian regime should look like, but a messy situation is bad for both sides. Israel can help him with intelligence information, but certainly should not interfere.”

    Amiram Levin, a former deputy head of the Mossad intelligence agency, told MEE that Sisi was also paying a price for his open relations with Israel.

    “Iran, for instance, classifies him as an enemy. In general, this serves as a propaganda factor against him,” Levin said.

    “Here Netanyahu is totally wrong when he runs to spread the good news of friendship.”

    The relationship between Sisi and Netanyahu is not one of mutual chemistry between leaders however, but one of shared interests.

    Under Sisi, military cooperation with Israel in the Sinai has reached unprecedented levels, with both countries identifying Islamic State- and al-Qaeda-linked militants in the peninsula as a common threat.

    While Egyptian forces are waging the war there on the ground, Israel is providing crucial intelligence for the campaign.

    Sisi has also played an important role as a broker in the bloody conflict between Hamas and Israel in Gaza.

    While criticising Israel’s use of excessive force and the subsequent deaths of civilians, he also considers Hamas to be an enemy of Egypt, even while hosting Hamas leaders for talks in Cairo, and convening a donors conference for the reconstruction of Gaza.

    This careful manoeuvring has made him an important player in the region, but also a target for countries with other interests, including Turkey and Iran.

    Here too, analysts say, an intelligence relationship with Israel has likely proved useful for Sisi.

    Despite the close ties however, Israeli-Egyptian relations are always accompanied by some level of suspicion.

    Many then-prominent Israelis suspected that Egyptian President Anwar Sadat’s 1977 visit to Israel, and the 1979 peace treaty between the countries were a dangerous trap.

    Two decades later in 2001, Avigdor Lieberman suggested that Israel should bomb the Aswan Dam if Egypt continued to build up military forces in the Sinai, and for many years the now-former defence minister believed the Egyptians were secretly preparing for another war with Israel.

    “Some level of suspicion is understandable,” Efraim Halevy, the head of the Mossad from 1998 to 2002, told MEE, emphasising the importance of stability in Egypt for Israel.

    “The security of Egypt and its political system – certainly now the security of President Sisi – are a vital security interest for Israel. Egypt has the largest population in the Arab world and a long border with Israel and Sinai.”

    On the other side of the border, he added, Islamist militants were waging a continuous war against Sisi and the Egyptian leadership.

    “This aspect, together with the peace and stability of Jordan, provide irreplaceable security capabilities for Israel,” said Halevy.

    One practical way for Israel to help Sisi, Halevy suggested, would be to make sure Washington is aware of his leadership’s strategic importance to Israel.

    The lesson of Morsi

    Levin, however, believes that Israel should also heed the lessons of past occasions when it has involved itself in the domestic politics of its neighbours, with unpredictable and dangerous consequences.

    The democratic election in 2012 of the Muslim Brotherhood-backed predecessor Mohamed Morsi was considered to be Israel’s worst nightmare. Yet in office, he was more pragmatic than expected prior to his ousting by Sisi in a military coup.

    Contrary to Israel's initial concerns and perhaps conscious of his dependency on US aid, Morsi never attempted to end the peace agreement between Israel and Egypt, and security coordination never stopped.

    And while he improved ties with Hamas, Morsi's government stayed away from direct involvement in periodic clashes between Hamas and Israel, working instead to broker a ceasefire in Gaza.

    “That was a lesson to learn,” said Levin. “Israel should not have expressed that level of dissatisfaction and fear [about Morsi].”

    Levin also cites the example of Israel’s support for Bashir Gemayel, the Christian militia leader who was assassinated after being elected president of Lebanon in 1982.

    The killing plunged Lebanon even deeper into a civil war which raged until 1990, with Israeli forces occupying the south of the country until their withdrawal in 2000.

    He says that while Israel may have a "fantastic understanding" of what is going on in neighbouring countries, it should recognise the limits of its ability to influence societies with complex traditions and histories of their own stretching back decades and centuries.

    “Israel has no particular interest in neighbouring dictatorships nor in strengthening regimes around us," he said. "Any kind of interference turns out to be a horrific mistake.”

    Turki al-Sheikh threatens to sue Egyptian whistleblower Mohamed Ali in Spain

    Top Saudi royal aide and owner of Almeria FC targets Egypt's most notorious YouTube star after being lambasted for helping prop up Sisi


    A senior adviser to the Saudi crown prince and owner of a Spanish football club has said he will seek to extradite Barcelona-based Egyptian whistleblower Mohamed Ali by filing a libel lawsuit against him in Spain.

    Turki al-Sheikh is a senior adviser to Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman and head of the kingdom's Entertainment Authority. He is also the owner of the Spanish football club Almeria FC, which he acquired in August after controversially withdrawing his ownership of Egyptian team Pyramids FC.

    Mohamed Ali is an Egyptian businessperson and actor-turned-whistleblower, whose video statements accusing top military officials in his country of opaque and lavish expenditure have gone viral since the beginning of September.

    Speaking from his experience as a real estate developer, Ali revealed that Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi has built palatial residences using public money. The accusations triggered a response from the president, who defended the policy by saying they were built “in the name of Egypt”.

    Sisi’s response, however, has ignited an online movement calling for his overthrow, and sparked rare protests in a country where nearly half the population lives under poverty line.

    In one of his videos, Ali criticised Egyptian singers and film stars for signing contracts with Sheikh to perform in Saudi Arabia, as part of the kingdom’s reforms aimed at shaking off its ultra-conservative image by becoming a regional hub for entertainment.

    Ali accused the celebrities of humiliating Egypt by taking turns to sign contracts with Sheikh at a press conference in Riyadh in February.

    “Who is that Turki? Are you signing with him merely for the sake of money? Don’t you have enough money and fame?” he said while addressing Egyptian celebrities and condemning Saudi Arabia's bankrolling of the Sisi government.

    “You are a beggar, you and your men and your media,” he told Sisi.

    Sisi took power from his democratically elected predecessor Mohamed Morsi in a 2013 military coup with Saudi backing, and his government currently receives billions in support from Riyadh.

    “I heard there is a contractor who wanted to play the role of a hero but couldn’t pull it off,” Sheikh wrote on Facebook on Thursday, referring to Ali.

    “He is unfortunately Egyptian and based in Spain. In my capacity as the owner of a club in Spain and holder of Spanish residency, and due to his transgressions and insults in one of his YouTube and Facebook clips, I have decided to take legal action with the biggest law firm in Spain,” he added.

    Sheikh said he sought eventually to deport Ali to Egypt if he was found guilty.

    “I wish I could win this case so that, who knows, maybe he will be extradited to his original country, although he doesn’t seem to be original. It seems he never drank Nile water,” he said.

    Since Ali’s videos became the trending topic in Egypt, the state has attempted to counter them with pro-state propaganda, including a single by best-selling rapper and actor Mohamed Ramadan titled “All they want is Chaos”.

    Sheikh, who also writes songs as a hobby, was the latest to take part in the pro-Sisi campaign.

    He announced on Thursday a new single by Amr Diab, who signed a contract with him in February, titled “I am in love with you, Egypt”.

    The video clip begins and ends with pictures of Sisi with Sheikh next to him.
