Binocular Snapshot for 07/06/2013

LastDayWatchers if you want to know the meaning to the Morsi removal with 100% accuracy understand why the May 15th Prophecy pointed out to you in the 5 star recommended reading in Binocular Snapshot 2/25/2013

Tehran does not need Arab governments to be more pro-Iranian; it just needs them to be less pro-America, less pro-Israel and more independent, because US elites miss this critical point, they miss a broader reality as well 

The Arab Awakening is accelerating the erosion of Washington’s strategic position in the Middle East, not Tehran’s

In his sermons at Tehran’s Friday Prayers, Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said,

"They confirmed the Camp David Accords and spread fear of Iran and Shi'a Islam,"

referring to the agreements that paved the way for a peace treaty between Egypt and Israel in 1979.

"In the past year, Morsi did not even once frown at the U.S. and the Zionist regime, while in the early days of their revolution the Egyptians not only set the embassy of the Zionist regime on fire, but they also confronted the excessive demands of foreign governments,"

former Intelligence Minister and prayer leader Ghorban Ali Dorri Najafabadi accused Morsi of having been dependent on the U.S. and Israel.

Morsi had erred in cutting ties with Syria, Iran's main ally in the region, while preserving ties with Israel, the "main enemy of Muslims.

In Mashhad, the hard-line Ayatollah Alam Ahdi claimed that Egyptians wanted an Islamic regime but that Morsi failed to deliver.

This is where the people's voice is heard, not of the Facebook sophisticates or the protesters in the squares, who change sides according to circumstance.

Here rage against the US reigns, against Obama and the American administration, for what the Egyptian people perceive as the US support for the Islamists "reign of terror."

"The Americans are threatening to cut the aid if our army doesn't do what they want? Let them," announced the owner to his customers.

I join one such conversation, in a corner coffee parlor, above which an Egyptian flag proudly waves.

"It's better to seal a deal with China and get all we need. Money for development, arms. America is finished anyway. How do they allow themselves to object to the will of the Egyptian people? The Egyptian people decide their own fate, not Washington. Obama wants to have the Muslim Brotherhood rule over all the Middle East."

"The Americans have three main interests in the area: Defending Israel, the oil in the Persian Gulf and control over the Suez Canal. They'll do everything to maintain these interests, and therefore are in favor of the status-quo. Mubarak guaranteed Israel's security. Morsi did nothing against Israel. Instead, he let Palestinians move from the Gaza Strip to Sinai. So, we deposed him."
Another man at the café shows me the newspaper he is reading: "Here is the proof that the Americans and Israelis are behind the Muslim Brotherhood," he said pointing to a headline that read "Israel regrets Morsi's ouster," and underneath, in small letters, the analysis is attributed to an op-ed published in the Haaretz paper, explaining why Morsi is "good for Israel."

The article was quoted in nearly all of Egypt's paper's Friday as proof of Israel antagonistic position in regards to Egypt and its secret pact with Morsi and the Brotherhood in a bid to dominate the area.

Perhaps no one was more thrilled by the events in Egypt than Assad himself, who published an irony-laden interview in the state-run newspaper Al Thawra, which incidentally means Revolution in Arabic.

Israeli experts said Israeli-Egyptian security coordination over Sinai in the last year had been closer and more intense than during the era of Mr. Morsi’s predecessor, Hosni Mubarak.

In November, Mr. Morsi played an instrumental role in brokering a cease-fire between Israel and Gaza, ending a fierce eight-day Israeli offensive. Hamas has since worked to rein in rocket fire by Gaza militants against southern Israel.

Israeli experts cautioned that a weakened Hamas was not necessarily good for Israel, either, noting that weakness could also lead to extremism.
