Canada's Deep and Steep Stealth Infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood

Published July 3, National Post:
Canada's Silence on Egypt a Sin
"Canada should have stood up to [Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah] al-Sisi long ago in the name of human rights. It's now up to civil society to push Ottawa to take off its blinders. To that effect, a number of concerned citizens have signed an open letter issued by the advocacy group Egyptian Canadian Coalition for Democracy (ECCD) to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In short, the document asks the prime minister to support the Egyptian people by condemning the Sisi regime's unprecedented crimes 'and to call for a hearing to discuss abuses of human rights in Egypt', drawing on recognized experts and former victims."
"Let's not forget: Sisi first came to power through a coup, not an election. Mohamed Morsi, elected by a fair vote in 2012 to be president of Egypt, was overthrown a year later by a military-backed takeover. Sisi, a military general at the time, stepped in to fill the executive void. The new regime then ordered the gunning down of more than a thousand demonstrators who protested the coup."

Published July 3, Toronto Star:
Canada should support the return of democracy in Egypt
"In the immediate aftermath of the military coup of July 3, 2013, the Egyptian regime and its allies expended a significant amount of time and money in trying to convince the world that the Earth is flat: That the military-led overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi and his democratically elected government was not a coup, but a popular uprising."
"The regime and its allies also tried to market the idea that one can actually restore democracy by snuffing it out. Then-American Secretary of State John Kerry tried to make that exact argument: 'The [Egyptian] Army was restoring democracy.' Now, five years later, the absurdity of that argument is especially evident."
"The diplomatic cover that various governments gave the Egyptian military has allowed it to consolidate its hold on power and methodically but quickly eliminate any meaningful opposition. The repression began with the arrests of President Morsi and his team, followed by the senior leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood."

If Canadians were ever in any doubt of the deep infiltration of Islamists within Canadian society, those doubts should now be stilled. It's amazing how beloved certain civilized catch-words are with those who have no intention whatever of despoiling their ideologies with 'democracy' and 'equality', let alone 'human rights'. But these are extremely useful verbal images to awaken the conscience of those who are indeed concerned with human rights, equality and democracy. The sanctimony expressed by the Muslim Brotherhood cabal of its concern for these basic pillars of democracy hide their real agenda of jihad on behalf of the seven pillars of Islam.

The photo illustration that appeared in Mr. Kamel's op-ed piece in The Star shows a large crowd opposing then-General Abdel al-Sisi's takeover in Cairo of government, unseating the Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi who in a manipulative election a year earlier during a time of mass social and political upheaval and confusion attained the presidency and in the year following made a complete hash of Egypt's administration. Its Islamist cohorts in the Sinai however, among them Bedouin Salafist groups and Hamas terrorists did lie low during that year, abstaining from their usual violence against the Egyptian government.

In that photo the demonstrators clearly identify themselves through their hand signals. Those hand gestures signal the Muslim Brotherhood's symbolic identity. And those protesting against the removal from long-awaited power by the Brotherhood are Brotherhood supporters, fundamentalist Islamists seeking to fully Islamicize Egypt with Sharia law and the freedom to more fully engage in vicious persecution of Egyptian Christians vastly predating Islam in the Middle East. The majority of Egyptians of all walks of life supported then-General al-Sisi's removal from the presidency, as it happens.

The current Egyptian administration represents a military tradition in Egypt when strongmen ruled the nation and did so largely to maintain the discipline of order in a geographic and religious and social landscape of continued-from-heritage sectarian and tribal animosities of a truly deadly nature. Even Islam cannot unite the tribal antipathies that seethe and fester from antiquity since Islam itself is divided between two main groups, Sunni and Shiite, with further divisions between all when they all deplore the pretensions to Islamic legitimacy of the others.

To his everlasting credit, President al Sisi has spoken publicly of the need for reform in Islam, to turn it away from its founding principle of jihad, of violent clashes with other religions -- and he made public overtures to the clerics responsible for Islamic education of imams and scholars at Al Azhar University in Cairo, but to no avail. He has also put his authority on line in repeated efforts to help solve the distance between Fatah and Hamas in the Palestinian debacle where the two ideologies both devoted to the precept of destroying Israel cannot get along without resorting to deadly plots against one another.

Under President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi the plight of Egyptian Christians, while never completely lifted has been relieved substantially. Egyptian society is a fractious one, but no segment more fraught than that of the Muslim Brotherhood which has established its long tentacles everywhere in the Muslim world and well beyond, into Europe and North America with its quest for conquest. And in that quest it seeks to use public relations ploys to enlist the sympathy and support of the West for the Brotherhood agenda. While portraying itself as 'moderate', it is anything but. Egypt's Christian minority is disappearing, but the Coptic Christians will disappear more rapidly should the Brotherhood return.

And now it, like its offshoot Hamas, has become skilled in infiltrating government circles for influence and legitimacy and has now reached out in Canada, to make inroads in public perception that it is an honourable supporter of democracy driven by no agenda but for the delivery of social good  to those deserving of equality and human rights delivery as a basic human right. Should it ever achieve lasting power, that it has worked so diligently for almost a century to attain, democracies would soon learn that all the disqualifying aptitudes that it attributes to Egypt's president reside in fact, in the Brotherhood's agenda of ultimate accomplishment.

Canadians should be fearful of its presence. And its presence is broad and deep with chapters throughout the country. Is this brand of Islam invading Canada? That question is stale, and needs to be replaced by the answer: it has indeed.

It has also launched a Go Fund Me campaign to raise $50,000 to help enable it to continue its disarming disinformation campaign among Canadians. In the three months since its launch $19,308 has so far been raised. The campaign is in support of Mohammad Morsi, the Brotherhood principal and former Egyptian president deposed after given due warning by then-General al-Sisi that the Egyptian people were not prepared to continue living under his maladministration that had exacerbated the nation's already precarious economic status.

The Egyptian Canadian Coalition for Democracy  (ECCD) is embarking on an awarenes campaign to revive public concern about the democratic failure for justice, and we need your support!

Campaign Goal
To resuscitate the call for democracy and human rights in Egypt and to rejuvenate the enthusiasm and the hopes of the January 25th generation. The goal of the campaign is to relentlessly engage and facilitate the participation of Canadians and people around the world to salute President Morsi, the only president ever to be fairly elected in Egypt, as a symbol of courage and resilience.

Our campaign intends to:
1. Lobby human rights organizations, governments, and politicians to guarantee the well being of Morsi and respect of his human rights
2. Participate in a media and legal national and international effort to demand justice and due process for Morsi and his supporters.
3. Raise awareness on the medical status of Morsi whose lawyers have stated that his life was in danger  because of his deteriorating health and lack of treatment.
  Canada, you are henceforth forewarned!
