Egypt’s Coup – not in the interests of the People or Peace

The line up of supporters for the military coup in Egypt is a clear warning of its reactionary nature: Blair, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the US, the EU and Israel.

In Egypt the opposition to the elected Muslim Brotherhood president Morsi are the army, the police and security apparatus, the remnants of the Mubarak party and establishment (the felol) and the ‘non-Islamic revolutionary forces’.

While all the demonstrations against Morsi were carried out by the non-Islamic forces, which are referred to as ‘the liberals’ by the Muslim Brotherhood, the actual power and preparation for the coup was done by the army, police and the felol.There was popular discontent over the economy and unemployment and suspicion of growing Islamisation, but the economy is still controlled by the army and the capitalists of the Mubarak era, who have not lost their property or power with the change of government.

Blair argues, echoing Egypt’s military, that the coup was necessary to stop disorder after days of massive demonstrations by the anti-Morsi protesters. Now there are mass demonstrations from both sides, 51 killed by the army and a danger of civil war. Those welcoming the coup should look at the coup backers and think again!

If Cuba proves that socialism doesn’t work, does Haiti prove that capitalism doesn’t work? (And remember, Cuba is under a 60-yr US blockade while Haiti gets billions in US aid.)
