Breaking Report: Egypt – Islamic Terrorists Strike Western Egypt Military Border Checkpoint – 15 Egyptian Soldiers Killed…

Egypt Banner New

It should be anticipated the Muslim Brotherhood will intensify calls for further attacks against Egyptian authorities – especially given the el-Sisi support for Israel’s efforts against Hamas.    The Brotherhood and Hamas are ideological brethren.   With Libya in a state of civil war and crisis, the Eastern Libya border to Egypt will be used by the severe Islamists as an incursion zone to attack.   

el-sisiRemember the most hated man in the region (by the terrorists) is not Benjamin Netanyahu, it is Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Saeed Hussein Khalil el-Sisi .  President el-Sisi has deconstructed the terror networks, arrested the brotherhood members, and jailed the violent extremists.

VIA BBC – Gunmen have killed at least 15 soldiers in an attack on a checkpoint in western Egypt, security officials say.

The attackers used grenade launchers and heavy machine guns when they attacked the desert post some 390 miles (630km) west of Cairo, officials said.  It is not yet clear who carried out the assault.  Militants have intensified a campaign against the security forces since the Islamist president Mohammed Morsi was ousted from power just over a year ago.  (link)

el-Sisi stands alone.

Egypt has a massive border with Libya.   Most of the severe al-Qaeda elements are in the Northeastern Libya corridor around Benghazi, Darnah and Bayda.  However, with internal Islamist fighting around Tripoli and Misrata for control of Libyan government, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Groups will also coordinate attacks into Egypt with their Muslim Brotherhood colleagues.

Modern Middle East

This is a dangerous time for Egyptian President el-Sisi.    He has to focus on the northern border region to stop Hamas from regrouping against Israel, and yet protect his Western border from attacks coming from Libya.

You can see from the maps and the conflicts in the headlines what a precarious position el-Sisi is in.    Fortunately he has a devoted, loyal and strong following amid the Egyptian people and the Egyptian military.  He is heavily respected by all of those who oppose terrorism.

The relationship between the Egyptian Government and the U.S. Obama administration is tenuous at best.   The majority secular Egyptian people despise Obama and Hillary Clinton for supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.   Conversely, the White House has generally cold shouldered el-Sisi with President Obama refusing to call and congratulate him after the election.    Obama is on the wrong side of history in this conflict.

    Prayers for el-Sisi.

    Boy how I wish we had a President who would call him to say ‘we’ve got your back’…. Alas, this administration is just as likely to cower and skulk away – worried any involvement would expose the fact that el-Sisi is under attack from U.S. weapons we gave to the Libyan terrorists.

          Sounds like a great time to publicly divulge the contents of the documents confiscated from Morsi’s office when he was arrested. Allegedly, those documents claim that Barry and his entire Kenyan family are members of MB Int’l. and that Barry gave his half-bro Malik aka Roy $8 BILLION of our tax dollars for MB with the stipulation to aid Hamas in taking over the Sinai Peninsula. Egypt put out an arrest warrant for Malik, who went underground with the money. BTW, the arrest warrant was because the Egyptian Army claims Malik is a member of MB and a terrorist aiding Sudanese terrorists.

      “…el-Sisi is under attack from U.S. weapons we gave to the Libyan terrorists.” That’s OK as he’s using the billions of dollars of US equipment we legally/quasi-legally gave Egypt over the last 30 years – the billions of dollars in Russian military equipment they contracted for earlier this year and the associated trainers hasn’t all arrived yet. Wonder who’ll get our used equipment when Egypt puts it on eBay?

          Playing with the Russians, and considering their track record with dictators they don’t approve of, I’d be more worried about them. Most of the Egyptian military uppercrust are from the elite classes and they have a long history of making sure the lower class don’t get their hands on the coup d’état supplies. The military leaders and the pols learned a lot for the Sadat mistake.

    Obama has been on the wrong side of the conflicts in Egypt, Libya, Syria – although I grant it’s hard to pick a side in Syria – and everywhere else he has meddled. Whatever he touches turns to a steaming pile. Egyptians discovered they were much better off under Mubarak than they had thought once the Muslim Brotherhood took power, aided by Obama. I hope el-Sisi manages to hold onto power.

    By the way, notice the beard on “Ayatollah Obama” in the background of one of the signs.

    I don’t think ‘President’ al-Sisi, I look at his previous titles: ” Commander-in-Chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces, and Minister of Defence”. Let’s not forget that he was swept into this mess by supporting the people – first in the installation of his presidential predecessor and then in his replacement. I also don’t forget that since Nasser just about ALL of Egypt’s presidents/Big Bosses have come from the military elite general staff, we are back to Egyptian ‘normal’
    I expect the Egyptian military intel folks are out with their 12-volt DC tools of the interrogation trade looking for leads and the Russian, through their intel sources in the area, are assisting. The results will weigh in against the UN presence in the Sinai and I’m expecting Egypt to act appropriately. I am expecting Israel to help Egypt, for personal reasons, under the table with targeting data, if not sheep-dipped strikes.
    Egypt has too much going to let the fundamentalists get too uppity, if need be certain MB personalities will be spoken of in the past tense though their exact whereabouts will be unknown (pssst – don’t eat the seafood in Alexandria). The Russians and Chinese are investing heavily in Egypt and no one wants the balance to be upset. This is the military’s game from hereon-in and they don’t be playin’ no touch football.

                  Interesting thing is that the folks in the Bush Administration knew what the POS was going to do even before he was sworn in and both the US and Israel went to the wall getting the supplies out so that none would be left purchased but unshipped by the inauguration so that once he was declared POtuS he couldn’t stop the shipments. They goota lotta good stuff and, I’m betting, some tech data that could help them build those items the good guys knew the POtuS wouldn’t sell to them.

      I suspect that there will be some personal disputes and rivalries attended to during this episode. That is how it goes. The Egyptian leadership knows it is in an existential battle with MB… they must prevail or the whole area goes sideways far more than ever.

      Egypt is seen in the community as the intellectual center of Islam, the MB want to run that fiefdom. If the MB prevail, Israel will be in a very bad way.

      el-Sisi can certainly use a few prayers from all of us assorted khuffars.

      • czarowniczy says:

        The battle may be more nihilistic than existential as the military considers the MB’s lives as meaningless. Nasser had camps and prison cells full of them and an exact accounting is impossible as so many just fell through the cracks – as in buried under them. Under Nasser the military saved lots of money on targets as the MB served quite nicely. Under Sadat they were politically marginalized. Sadat left the party outlawed but released the remaining live MB members from the camps and patronized them with meaningless attempts to integrate them. As their nearly twenty years under Nasser were still fresh in their minds they weren’t quite as active. Now the military, with Russian (and Chinese) vice wimpy US backing, may just consider those camps, in one form or another, again if the MB acts up. If I were the MB in Egypt I’d sweat the military using its ‘active’ anti-AQ measures to reduce the MB’s numbers. A dead Egyptian MB looks a lot like a dead Egyptian/Arab AQ corpse.
