Denmark Cartoons absent Real Democracy Battle in Egypt

I am not surprised how the saga of the cartoons is escalating in a very disturbing manner. I have just learned that some stores in Egypt wrote signs on the doors that “Danes are not welcomed here”. For God’s sake, this radical Islam is turning to be a Nazi’s ideology. It is an ideology of hatred and destruction against Denmark and some other European countries. Again, shamelessly, Muslims are terrorizing other innocent citizens. Is this the common language that Muslims prefer to use to talk to others?

The cartoons saga has proven itself to be the perfect way to distract masses from critical democracy issues that are currently taking place in Egypt. I could not believe myself yesterday when the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped in talk about the cartoons when he is responsible today for the death of around 1400 Egyptians who drowned on this way back from a trip to Saudi Arabia. Where are the accountability and anti-corruption policies?

Cartoons are not only to get the adrenalin going in a stagnant area of the world where citizenship is meaningless but also it has the benefit of distracting the people to stand on critical issues of freedom and democracy.

The anti- Denmark campaign is an example of blind fervent emotional citizens who are stopping at some cartoons and not at critical democracy issues. Those stupid cartoons were published hundreds of times before and I rememeber in the Egyptian Al Fager newspaper a month ago but only because of a radical Islamist living in Denmark who distributed those cartoons on Muslim embassies the whole saga started. This is the time that Europe should start seriously consider the residency and citizenship of hatred propagators and fanatics living on its lands.

In Egypt, the regime’s National Democratic Party restructured itself while the big babble about the cartoons is happening with an obvious scale up to the son of the president’s position at the party. He was only the secretary of the policies committee now he became the Party’s General Secretary’s assistant. He became the second guy at the regime’s party. It is another indication to the grooming plan for the son of the President to take over. He stated all those denials in the world that he is not running for the President’s office before the NDP’s restructuring process as if he is talking in children’s shows.

President Mubarak brought the Muslim Brotherhood to the spot light during the last Egyptian parliamentarian elections as the main opposition stream in the Egyptian society. He created his own opposition to terrify the world and make the peoples of the world believe that the Muslim brotherhood is the Egyptian opposition. He has strong interest in establishing the Muslim brotherhood as his own opposition. And the Muslim brotherhood is a bunch of opportunists who wants to be in power at any expense, so they will use the current regime and we will be the victim as usual.

The turn out of the last elections was 26% according to the minister of justice, anyone can definitely divide this number by 2 since it is coming from Egyptian government sources. The conclusion is that the NDP is not the majority and the Muslim Brotherhood does not represent the opposition or the Egyptian people as claimed.

The latest discovery that the Al Wafd party chairman ,who ran for Presidency in last September farce, is hired by the state security is another proof for scaling up the Muslim Brotherhood. The leaders of AlWafd party are trying to topple Noaman Gomaa, but again he returns with an order from the attorney general. What is happening? He ran in the presidential elections to allow forging the elections and bring Mubarak for fifth term. The AlWafd party historically is known to be the party of liberals and Copts. A party with such characteristics makes itself so difficult from the regime’s point of view to stay for competition. So this Noaman Gomaa was hired by the state security to ruin the party and now they are busy trying to solve the row with in stead of paying attention to establishing democracy in Egypt. And others are busy with the cartoons. I hope that the leadership fighting Gomaa will win because that will save an important party in the entire Egyptian history.

The most important and critical battle to Egypt’s democracy process is running now and no one is hearing of it. That is breaking my heart apart that all the attention is given to some fanatics when some honorable Egyptians who are taking over the battle against tyranny and hegemony of the current regime are not getting half the attention given to those damn cartoons and fanatic muslims. The Egyptian Judges club memebers do not need financial support but they need morale support and attention. Where are the international media that support democracy and freedom in the world? Some 5000 Egyptian judges are fighting one of the most important battles in the history of Egypt towards democracy and no one is reporting. It is good that the press is mentioning jailed opposition leader Ayman Nour and demonstrations in Egypt but what those judges are doing could be of great impact if given some international support and leverage. But if we are measuring priority by impact, there is no doubt that the Judges Club battle will stand out.

And let me explain the battle for those who are not aware of what is currently happening in Egypt. The Judges club whose members are around 8000 in which 5000 are truly independent judges are fighting for the separating the judiciary authority from the executive one. Currently who finances and presides over the Higher Council for Judiciary is the Minister/Ministry of Justice. The Judiciary authority is Egypt receives its money from the Ministry of Justice unlike the Egyptian Parliament as an example. The Egyptian Judges club is asking for their independence from the government. This club or authority is responsible for protecting the civil law and the civil state. The most two important things we could be proud of in Egypt. Let’s not forget that in their last December’s club elections in Cairo and Alexandria, all the categories and classes of the Egyptian society stood behind them and all the government nominees failed. Let’s not forget that Saad Zaghlood and Mostafa Pasha Al Nahas were originally judges and that may be history is repeating itself. Let’s not forget that the Egyptian Club for Judges, despite the fact that the government is paying their pensions and salaries are standing strong in a very fierce battle and that they did not compromise their status.

If they succeeded in liberating themselves from the grip of the government, no police officer will dare to attack or beat a judge while supervising the election process as the case in the last parliamentary elections.

Independence of judiciary power will give the chance for the Egyptians to stand behind and support other sincere Egyptians who have no interest in power like the current regime or the Muslim Brotherhood. Independence of Egyptian judiciary will cut the way on inheriting the president’s office plans, hence a truly free and democratic Egypt. Those are the group of people that can apply our law and constitution and stand firm in front of the islamization of Egypt and in front of radical Islam. They have fans among all classes of the Egyptian society including Islamists.

I call upon all readers of my blog who have relations with the international press to bring the battle for the Egyptian Judges club into being instead of putting those fanatic Muslims under the spot light. They do not deserve. These cartoons exposed where every nation and country is standing. Fanatic Muslims are standing at the grounds of hatred against freedoms, they do not deserve the support of the press. Let them burn with hatred.

I would like international press to hightlight the Egyptian judges club work and get in touch of Justices Ahmed Mekky, Hesham Bastawesy, Zakaria Abdel Aziz, Mahmoud Al Khoudery…they are 5000 Free Egyptian judges looking for a better future for Egypt under Democracy and Freedom.

Exactly. This must be the wakeup call for the west to finally realize that something is horribly wrong in the middle east.

This is a greater cause and I am prepared to suffer for any other human being regardless of their religious beliefs if it means that it could help them gain just a tiny bit of freedom.

I am from Denmark and I will try let my little voice heard by getting in touch with other Danish bloggers and also the news papers to spread the word.

You are SUPER! Thanks for the promise.

YES, We all need to support democracy and freedom in Egypt and the entire middle east. This is our only exit from the vortex of radical Islam.

Oh my goodness FFE - Now THIS is an issue that Egyptians should rally around and not those stupid cartoons that I am so sick of hearing about!

The judges MUST stay independent of the other branches of government. Separation of the differenct branches of government was taught to us in 5th grade! This is IMPERATIVE for democracy to begin in Egypt...there has to be checks and balances so that the presidency cannot consolidate ALL the power. Thank you for posting this very much. Living in the states I don't get a lot of Egyptian news but I am starving for it. I am politically active regarding American politics and I would like to be politically informed about Egypt as well. Believe me, I love my country so much and am so proud to be Egyptian but our country is sick and needs a lot of help.

The independency of the Judges Club is a start. Thanks again for the info and please keep us uniformed up to date!!

We all love our country that's the only reason why I write here and that's only reason why come, visit and comment.

Find a way to make the Judges Club case well known in the US.

One of the things that the government did and I should have mentioned this in the post that the government made changes to the Bill of Judges' independence without sharing the modifications with the Club. It is a real battle that needs the world's attention.

To be honest I haven´t understood all I have read. The reason on the one hand may be that it is really late in the morning and on the other hand -i admit- could be my bad english.
But I wanted to tell You that nonetheless you made somebody cry here. I am fed up with the smear campaign. All the pictures I see and information i can get has been about the mob and its hatred. Always "respect" is demanded from me by someones I cannot see they would respect neither me nor even tolerate some certain values
Well, i will come back an going to ´observe´ your blog from now on. You are giving me fresh heart.

Wow, how does it work with that´language-counter´? Guess I am the one who is observed, huh? Impressing.Good Night.

Perhaps this cartoon thing was deliberately stirred up in order to do serious things under the radar, like screw over the judges. It stinks of some kind of underhanded dealing that the cartoons were published months ago and only now the public outcry gets going.

What a great post! I was shocked to hear about the cartoons being printed a month ago in a regional paper.

"This is the time that Europe should start seriously consider the residency and citizenship of hatred propagators and fanatics living on its lands."____We are seriously considering them, but they are not so easy to be rid of. They can employ good lawyers, and will spin out the process through one court after another, until the cost of deporting them becomes astronomical. Look at Abu Hamza in London. Meanwhile, geuine refugees whose papers are not quite right get deported with no delay.

Dear @freedom,

you make me feel honoured by listing my notepad ( indicated with "Denmark" in red on your brave blog.
Not that I would have anything against Denmark. And it is well known that all of us are Danes now.
But the language on "bloggpoltik" is German. I don´t speak one word danish. :-)

I´ve been to Morocco once and to Israel but never to Denmark.
That doesn´t prevent me from supporting danish cows though.

UPDATE: And now the leaders of this so called "peaceful religion" have called for the murder of the cartoonist. Could you imagine the Pope or Dali Lama doing such a thing? Not since the Nazis has the world been so in danger of loosing it's humanity. Something is wrong in the state of Islam.

We wake up this morning to see video on CNN showing rampaging Muslims around the world. In Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific Rim ... Muslim Mobs spreading mayhem. It seems that these mighty mad Muslims are rioting and firing their ever-present AK-47s into the air because of cartoons. Yup ... this latest epidemic of Muslim outrage comes to us because some newspapers in Norway and Denmark published some cartoons depicting Mohammed. In fact ... here is one of my favorites!

Admit it, this turban/bomb thing IS ACCURATE.

Muslim outrage huh. OK ... let's do a little historical review. Just some lowlights:

Muslims fly commercial airliners into buildings in New York City. No Muslim outrage.
Muslim officials block the exit where school girls are trying to escape a burning building because their faces were exposed. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims cut off the heads of three teenaged girls on their way to school in Indonesia. A Christian school. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims murder teachers trying to teach Muslim children in Iraq. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims murder over 80 tourists with car bombs outside cafes and hotels in Egypt. No Muslim outrage.
A Muslim attacks a missionary children's school in India. Kills six. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims slaughter hundreds of children and teachers in Beslan, Russia. Muslims shoot children in the back. No Muslim outrage.
Let's go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims massacre dozens of innocents at a Passover Seder. No Muslim outrage.

Muslims fire rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims murder more than 50 commuters in attacks on London subways and busses. Over 700 are injured. No Muslim outrage.

Muslims murder innocent vacationers in Bali. No Muslim outrage.
Muslim newspapers publish anti-Semitic cartoons. No Muslim outrage
Muslims are involved, on one side or the other, in almost every one of the 125+ shooting wars around the world. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims beat the charred bodies of Western civilians with their shoes, then hang them from a bridge. No Muslim outrage.
Newspapers in Denmark and Norway publish cartoons depicting Mohammed. Muslims are outraged.
Dead children. Dead tourists. Dead teachers. Dead doctors and nurses. Death, destruction and mayhem around the world at the hands of Muslims .. no Muslim outrage ... but publish a cartoon depicting Mohammed with a bomb in his turban and all hell breaks loose.

Come on, is this really about cartoons? They're rampaging and burning flags. They're looking for Europeans to kidnap. They're threatening innkeepers and generally raising holy Muslim hell not because of any outrage over a cartoon. They're outraged because it is part of the Islamic jihad's culture to be outraged. You don't really need a reason. You just need an excuse. Wandering around, destroying property, murdering children, firing guns into the air and feigning outrage over the slightest perceived insult is to a jihadist what tailgating is to a Steeler's fan.

I know and understand that these bloodthirsty murderers do not represent the majority of the world's Muslims. When, though, do they become outraged? When do they take to the streets to express their outrage at the radicals who are making their religion the object of worldwide hatred and ridicule? Islamic writer Salman Rushdie wrote of these silent Muslims in a New York Times article three years ago. "As their ancient, deeply civilized culture of love, art and philosophical reflection is hijacked by paranoiacs, racists, liars, male supremacists, tyrants, fanatics and violence junkies, why are they not screaming?"

Indeed. Why not?

UPDATE: And now the leaders of this so called "peaceful religion" have called for the murder of the cartoonist. Could you imagine the Pope or Dali Lama doing such a thing? Not since the Nazis has the world been so in danger of loosing it's humanity. Something is wrong in the state of Islam.

The only problem with the cartoon is that he left out the horns
