UAE Islamists had military wing, planned Islamic state: papers

Islamists detained in the United Arab Emirates have confessed to setting up a secret organization with an armed force whose aim was to take power and establish an Islamic state, local media reported on Thursday.

The detainees, who number around 60, were all members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood organization, the privately owned al- Khaleej newspaper reported. Two other newspapers, including the state-owned al-Bayan, ran similar reports. None gave named sources.

A UAE official declined to comment on the reports, saying the matter was subject to legal proceedings.

The UAE, a significant oil exporter and Middle East business hub, tolerates no organized political opposition.

Concerned about possible spillover from the Arab Spring, it has acted fast to isolate dissidents, stripping seven Islamists of their citizenship last year on national security grounds.

The UAE state prosecutor has charged those detained with founding an organization that violates state security, having links to foreign organizations and insulting the political leadership, al-Khaleej reported. Their case will be referred to the relevant court soon, it said.

"Members of the organization admitted that they exploited the events of the Arab Spring and that their strategic aim was to seize power and establish a religious state or caliphate," the newspaper said.

"In the course of the investigations it became clear that the organizational structure of the organization comprised committees and branch offices in every emirate, as well as a consultative council, an executive office and a military wing," the newspaper reported.

The group was coordinating with Brotherhood organizations in three other Gulf Arab countries,

So, more Muslim Brotherhood.

Hence, Google? Soros? Obama?

Hmmmm...

60 here, too

“(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - The Ramallah authority security services launched a campaign of mass arrests against Hamas supporters and cadres, in West Bank towns, arresting so far 60 leaders, reformers, ex-captives, youth activists and universities’ students.”

United States of Iran

When all is said and done, Achmadinnerjacket is going to figure in. Don’t even act surprised when you hear it.

Funding, supplies, training, planning, sooner or later the connection will be made.

Iran liked having Syria and Hezbollah in it’s sphere of influence. It decided that one way to counter U. S. interests in the region would be to quietly support an underground movement in the region that would go across Islamic factional lines, and leave it with a heavy influence with it’s underground gone main stream allies.

The Emirate states were natural enemies of a plan like this, because it would mean their governments would fall too. Even if they didn’t, the soon to be nuclear Iran will be able to blackmail them at a moment’s notice.

We have got to stand up to Iran and stop this stuff, or our influence globally will be all but destroyed.

We should be in secretive negotiations with Saudi Arabia, and the Emirate states, to neuter Iran in short order.

As a part of that plan, we should set up an underground in Iran and remove it’s leadership. Thus Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas, and Al Qaeda will be immediately impacted negatively.

Some of these organizations would almost cease to exist. Others would get funding and supplies elsewhere. It sure wouldn’t be the easy thing it has been for decades.

This would cause all underground players to surface, go on the record and be recognized for the evil they have been participating in.

They said at least 3 other countries are involved. Bet there is far more...

Egypt, Libya, Tunisia? They indicate on the coattails of the Arab Spring... I wonder if Beck has seen this...it sure make him look like less of a conspiracy nut.

Two big players in that scenario you missed...Russia and China. But...yeah...you sound like your right on.

I am much more certain that some of the old USSR Marxist network still exists across the region. I’ve been commenting on another thread with that premise. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to know that the Russian underground has provided supplies to Iran, perhaps other players in the region, specifically those around Iraq and Afghanistan.

Is the government of Russia involved? I think it would be a mistake to say that it wasn’t emphatically. I’m not convinced it has been as overt about it as we were during the Russian invasion of Afghanistan. It would seem to me that it could arrange to facilitate the Russian underground supply route and still look like a good player internationally.

Is China involved? While I’m not convinced it isn’t, I think we would have gotten more of an indication of it if it were. China is emerging in Africa. I’m not certain it feels the need to challenge old alliances in the Middle-East connected to Russia. If it were involved, I would suggest it would be financial rather than supplies, but there isn’t really any way of knowing for sure that I know of.

Our military should know. They know what arms they are running into in Iraq and Afghanistan. They know their origin. They may not wish to make that public, because there would be a movement for retribution. That’s not a road we want to go down.

I do think it was reasoned to bring up the point I did not mention them in the comments I made. I’m just not certain how to prove or quantify their activity.

Wasn’t Iran buying materials to build “nuclear reactors” at one point. I seem to recall that there was some question to the type of items being sent and wasn’t Russian to oversee the building of the plants?

A day or so ago...Tehran has deployed one of its Russian-made submarines in the Persian Gulf, just days after the United States and more than two dozen allies began naval...ABC News.

And there is this mess from Jan. of this year:

Yes, the Nuclear plants were designed and built by Russian personnel. Russia blusters a lot these days, and it’s mostly hot air intended for internal consumption. Russia probably values it’s economic ties to Iran more than it’s strategic needs. It has made cosmetic moves with regard to Syria and Iran. Is it serious, or is it just bluster?

I tend to think bluster more than serious, but that’s just my take.

Russia isn’t the only nation selling subs in the region. Seems I remember a few diesel units sold in the region in the last five years or so. They were from Europe. I don’t remember who it was.

I don’t think anyone should be supplying Iran with anything. Of course Russia doesn’t see it that way.

You know, Europe doesn’t seem to care much if Iran gets the bomb either. And Russia seems to be just fine with it. Attacks at Belsen (sp?) and Moscow by radical Islamists don’t see to have taught it anything.

Thanks for the comments and link.

You are welcome FARS.

I thought this was important. It puts reality to a lot of the conspiracy thought about THE caliphate.

It also seemed to strengthen the ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

I thought it might spark some insight and discussion, but I guess it sounds like a broken record, even though there is now physical proof of the likely endgame and how close it actually is. Russian and China blustering and funding Iran’s regime and likely rebels throughout the Middle East and America sending billions of dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood ...

It is all happening right in front of us...and we’re funding it.

The UAE is one country that I am not worried about falling into the hands of Islamists. It is the exact opposite of Saudi Arabia.

Sounds like someone in CIA isn't playing with Barky -- fed his MB buddies' names to UAE security; they're now doing a Suharto with the coup plotters beforehand, not waiting for them to make their move.

Sounds like they tried Bahrain last spring but weren't ready there, either, at least not ready for Saudi intervention.

If the emirs and sultans want to live, all these MB types will end up in a sand dune.
