|Whilst the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt during President Morsy's democratic government was in power these scenes were repeated throughout Egypt. Obama's response was to send Morsy Apache helicopters, Abrams tanks and F16s.|
The Obama administration that lifted sanctions on Burma which then went on to murder thousands of Kachin Christians in an ongoing genocide has a soft spot for murderous Muslim Brotherhood regimes.
Not for nothing was Mohamed Elbiary who is a member of the MB made a director of Homeland Security in the US. The US security agencies are riddled by extremist muslims placed there by Obama's cronies. Elbiary famously declared the USA to be an 'Islamic country', shariah compliant.
Nobody can be happy at countries where the respect for human rights is so low that people are sentenced to death in batches. But this is the reality of the arab world, where if your regime is not ruthless it will not survive.
Obama did not make one protest to deposed ex-President Morsy at the mass murders of innocents in Tahrir Square and throughout Egypt whilst he was in charge. Morsy's salafist thugs cruised around cities arresting those they thought were contravening shariah law. They made sure such persons were never seen again.
Morsy's men murdered people of the tiny Shia community and Coptic Christians alike. Coptic young women have for years been kidnapped, forcibly converted to islam and 'married' off to salafists.
Christians human rights throughout the world have as usual been ignored by the Obama administration, whether in Pakistan or Indonesia, just as the murder of Jews by islamic terrorists in France was described simply as "some random folks" by Obama.
There is a worrying pattern of this President's interference or at times silence in Arab countries whilst lambasting the Jewish State at every opportunity. Obama wished to tie the American horse to sunni islamists notable Turkey and Egypt allied to Iranian interests, but when that fell apart with Morsy's overthrow, and Turkey's incresing isolation, Obama increasingly has decided to throw the USA into Iran's orbit. It is only in these terms that Obama's desperation to get a nuclear deal from Iran, any deal can be explained.
After all the Obama administration has done to destabilize the Middle East and Asia, it's a good idea if the Arabs are left to get on with their gruesome tasks. Sadly it is in all our interests, even if not in Obama's.
Egypt and its backer Saudi Arabia realize that the alternative to mercilessly crushing the Muslim Brotherhood is to face another mass breakout from prisons in future and the collapse of Egypt and other Arab states.
However hateful are the remaining arab regimes not yet involved in the maelstrom Obama unleashed by effectively deposing Mubarak, at least they offer some semblance of order in relation to the Iran and Sunni terrorist inspired chaos now ruling in Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
We may be disgusted but Arab dictators know their work. For the near future brutal and despotic Arab regimes are the only game in town. The alternative is a further meltdown, millions more refugees along with mass death being the result.
And Obama will be gone soon, but not before his wrongheaded policies have wreaked even more devastation upon the Middle East and the world.
The United States said it was “deeply concerned” about former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi’s death sentence Sunday, joining a growing list of countries and international groups who have condemned Saturday’s court decision to execute the former leader.
Judge Shaaban el-Shami sentence Morsi and over 100 others to death Saturday over a mass prison break during the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak and later brought Islamists to power for the first time in Egypt.
Before a death penalty decision can be finalized against Morsi or the over 100 other defendants included in El-Shami’s decision, however, the case must be reviewed by Grand Mufti of Egypt Shawki Ibrahim Abdel-Karim Allam, according to Egyptian law.
Though the decision is not yet final, the ruling has drawn a chorus of international condemnation, joining Washington, Hamas and a host of others in opposition to the execution.
“We are deeply concerned by yet another mass death sentence handed down by an Egyptian court to more than 100 defendants, including former President Morsi,” a State Department official told Reuters Saturday.
“We have consistently spoken out against the practice of mass trials and sentences, which are conducted in a manner that is inconsistent with Egypt‘s international obligations and the rule of law,” a State Department official told AFP.
Noting that they were preliminary sentences, the official added: “We continue to stress the need for due process and individualized judicial processes for all Egyptians in the interests of justice.”
The ruling applies to 120 people in total, including 70 Palestinians, and is the latest in a series of mass death sentences handed down since the military overthrew Morsi nearly two years ago. The sentence will likely further polarize Egypt, a longtime US ally grappling with an Islamist insurgency that has intensified since Morsi’s overthrow.
In what appears to be the first violent response to the ruling, suspected Islamic militants gunned down three judges and their driver in the northern Sinai Peninsula city of al-Arish, according to security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
