    Russian President Vladimir Putin and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi on Wednesday called for a coalition to combat terrorism in the Middle East. Opening a meeting with Putin in Moscow, el-Sissi said "the Egyptian people" are hoping for broader ties with Russia in all areas, particularly in fighting terrorism in the Middle East. El-Sissi's Russian visit, his second in the past three months, highlights Moscow's attempts to expand its influence in Egypt at a time when Egyptian-U.S. relations have soured in the aftermath of the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.

In Contrast to President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisiís overtures to Muslim Brotherhood members not involved in violence in the post-30 June 2013 period, the government is continuing to follow through on policies aimed at politically eliminating the Islamist organisation and cutting off its sources of funding. Most recently the Teachers and Pharmacists Syndicates, long time political platforms for the Brotherhood, were sequestrated. Earlier this week the assets of Zad and Seoudi supermarket chains, owned by leading Brotherhood members Khairat Al-Shater and Abdel-Rahman Seoudi, were seized. Though it sometimes...

    In the irony of ironies, the first democratically elected president of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, was overthrown on July 3 by the Egyptian military, ostensibly to save Egypt's fledgling "democracy." Doubtlessly, Morsi's organization, the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan al-Muslimin), was in the process of dismantling any vestiges of democracy and installing an Islamic dictatorship. Yet the intervention of Egypt's military has produced a situation in which the Ikhwan claim to be the victims of a coup. Simultaneously, the disparate -- and desperate -- secular opposition have aligned themselves with the very military that only two years ago they...

    It is not only the anti-government protesters in Egypt's Tahrir Square who should be concerned about President Mohammed Morsi's audacious power grab. Mr Morsi's claim at the weekend that "God's will and elections made me the captain of this ship" has echoes of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's claim during the 1979 Iranian revolution that his mission to overthrow the Shah enjoyed divine guidance. Since his announcement that he was granting himself sweeping new powers, Mr Morsi has been trying to reassure sceptical Egyptian voters that he has no ambition to become Egypt's new Pharaoh. But you only have to look at...

David Hornik On September 18, 2012 @ 12:45 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 2 Comments There are certain obvious parallels between the 1979 rise of the ayatollahsí regime in Iran and the 2012 rise of the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt. In both cases, the political takeover was enabled by a Democratic U.S. president who had some degree of sympathy for it. In both cases, a moderate U.S. allyóReza Shah Pahlavi and Hosni Mubarak respectivelyówas abandoned in favor of the radicals.In Iranís case, it took another ten years...

    The current front-runner for Democrat nomination for the 2016 presidential election is looking decidedly less electable almost daily. And this new revelation isnít going to help her case any. A complaint filed with Attorney General Hisham Barakat of Egypt argued that Naglaa Ali Mahmoud, the wife of imprisoned former Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi, admitted to collaborating with Hillary Clinton to oust current Egyptian President Abdel-Fatah Al-Sissi. But it gets better ó although probably not from Clintonís point of view. In an interview granted to Turkeyís Anatolia news agency, Mahmoud allegedly made a number of statements that...

    In addition to raining spiteful criticism upon Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the man now being hailed as the new ďLeader of the Free WorldĒ (a position formerly held by American presidents, even Jimmy Carter), President Obama has also chosen to petulantly ignore Egyptian President General Abdel Fatah el-Sisi as he demonstrates his own leadership abilities on the world stage. For years, Egypt and Israel have been our strongest (and perhaps only) allies in the Middle East. We have given Egypt upwards of $1.5 BILLION annually, second only to Israel in foreign aid commitments. But this was before the newly...

    Egypt's former Islamist President Mohammed Morsi has struck a defiant tone at the beginning of his trial over his escape from prison in 2011. Mr Morsi started shouting: "I am the president of the republic, how can I be kept in a dump for weeks?" Egypt's first freely elected president was deposed by the military in July 2013 after mass protests against his rule. He is now facing four separate criminal trials on various charges. Mr Morsi and other defendants in the case are appearing in a sound-proofed glass box during the trial. He will only be permitted to address...

    Egyptian presidential favourite and former army chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has vowed that the banned Muslim Brotherhood group "will not exist," should he win. In his first interview with Egyptian TV, he added that two assassination plots against him had been uncovered. Mr Sisi removed Egypt's first democratically elected President Mohammed Morsi from power last July. He is widely expected to win the presidential election on 26-27 May. Mr Sisi had denied he had any political ambitions when he ousted President Morsi and launched a crackdown on the Brotherhood - which supported him - last year. In a joint interview...

    Prosecutors Sunday accused deposed president Mohammed Morsi of leaking state secrets to Iranís Revolutionary Guards as part of a plot to destabilize Egypt, at the second hearing of his trial for espionage. The trial, one of three that are under way against Morsi, is part of a relentless government crackdown targeting him and his Muslim Brotherhood movement since his ouster by the army in July. Ö

    A guest lecture at a London university was abandoned when protesters backing Egyptís Muslim Brotherhood chased the speaker from the stage. Speaker Mohamed El-Nabawy had to be ushered off stage by security guards when around 30 demonstrators stormed a lecture theatre at Bloomsburyís School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), which is part of the University of London. They were said to have targeted the public discussion, focusing on the challenges facing Egypt, because of Mr El-Nabawyís ties to the Tamarod group which opposed ex President Mohammed Morsi.

    The ouster of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has enabled Hamas to begin to restore its strained relations with Iran, according to Arab journalist Ali Hashem. .... Hashem noted that not of all Hamasís bridges were burned in Tehran, despite the rift over Syria, thanks to a few officials in Gaza who decided on their own that relations with Iran shouldnít halt. One of those, wrote Hashem was Ahmad Jaabari, who maintained strong ties with Iranian officials and had his own lobby within the political bureau. Jaabari was killed by Israel in what started the counterterrorism Operation Pillar of Defense in...

    In highly anticipated protests to mark the first anniversary of President Mohammed Morsiís inauguration, millions of Egyptians took to the streets across the country in unprecedented numbers Sunday to demand his removal from office, three years before his term expires. The protests were largely peaceful after days of worries that they would unleash violence between pro- and anti-Morsi camps. But in those places where they came together, the two sides kept their distance, with Morsiís supporters vastly outnumbered by the presidentís opponents. This normally bustling city set aside its usual business what in Egypt is the first day of the...

"We will not achieve anything through threats," Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, told reporters through an interpreter during a visit to Paris.The Saudi official made his comments after meeting French President Francois Hollande, who on Thursday called for a swift end to a state of emergency imposed by Egypt's military authorities.
