Egypt Has A New Dictator

3 June 2014

Egypt’s president-elect, the former army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, told Egyptians it is now “time to work” to rebuild the economy after he was officially declared the landslide winner of last week’s election, restoring a career military man to the country’s top office…

Egypt: Top rights activist held for ‘illegal’ radio

Monday 6th April 2015

THE head of an Egyptian human rights organisation was held by Cairo police at the weekend following their raid on the group’s online radio station.

Andalus Institute for Tolerance and Anti-Violence Studies director Ahmed Samih said that officers told him he was under investigation for broadcasting without a license on the web radio platform Horytna.

“One of the main questions was around our political affiliation,” he said in a phone call from the police station, adding that the radio station was not affiliated with a party and was focused on human rights.

Also on Saturday, Human Rights Watch urged Egypt to halt the execution of six men condemned to death for killing security forces, contending that some were in jail during the attack.

The rights group said that the men were among nine convicted of killing two officers in a 2014 shootout near Cairo.

The Egyptian regime of General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi carried out the hanging Sunday of six individuals convicted in a frame-up military trial on terrorism charges. The mass execution came just one day after ousted President Mohamed Mursi was sentenced to death along with 105 other defendants in another politically motivated and rigged proceeding. Together, these actions are emblematic of the vicious police-state character of the regime in Cairo, which is a key pillar of US and Western European imperialist interests in the Middle East. The judicial proceedings that led to the death sentences for the six men hanged Sunday constituted a cruel farce: here.

Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah al-Sisi visited Berlin on Wednesday at the invitation of the German government. Al-Sisi was received with the highest honors by President Joachim Gauck in Bellevue Castle. Afterwards, a “discussion” took place, according to a terse statement on the president’s web site. Other events during his visit included photo-ops during “the welcome at the palace gate,” “the guest book signing in the entrance hall” and “military honors at the park”: here.

No other event could have better exposed the human rights pretenses of the German ruling class than the official reception of Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Berlin. If the term “mass murderer” can be applied to any international head of state, it certainly applies to him: here.
