Zakaria: Egypt's greatest threat - its military

By Fareed Zakaria, CNN

The video above shows a strange cartoon from Egypt. It's of Uncle Sam looking sinister and mean, hunched over a door with a keyhole. The implication, I suppose, is that the U.S. is spying on Egyptians. Another cartoon shows him with a pistol and he's pointing it at an Egyptian man with a cannon. The caption in Arabic says "dignity". The point here is quite clear: Americans are robbing Egyptians of their dignity.

What in the world?

These cartoons were published recently in a state-run newspaper and they highlight a disturbing trend: Egypt's transitional government is trying to whip up anti-American fervor.

Its latest ploy is a high-publicity trial. Forty-three people, nearly half of them U.S. citizens, stand accused of illegally receiving foreign funds to promote democracy. The government claims they didn't have a license to do their work but in reality these people had filed their registration papers under the old regime of Hosni Mubarak. They were told their papers were in order.

It's a little rich for the Egyptian government - which receives $1.2 billion from the United States every year - to harass charities for getting funds from America. So what's going on?

In a recent column, the New York Times' Tom Friedman points out that the ongoing trial was the brainchild of an old Mubarak crony - Fayza Abul Naga, Egypt's minister of planning and international cooperation. Her strategy, Friedman says, is to unite Egyptians by "standing up to the foreigners."

She plays this game by taking advantage of a fractured Egyptian leadership. It seems she got the military on board by showing them how human rights workers from abroad are their most vocal critics. Rounding them up, the logic goes, would show how Egypt's protests are driven by external forces.

In fact, Egypt's uprising was entirely indigenous. There were no evil foreign forces at work. America was caught unaware, as were all foreign governments. The real problem now is that the Egypt's old regime is clinging on to power. People like Abul Naga and the power behind her - the military.

Egypt's last four presidents, including Hosni Mubarak, came from the armed forces. That group remains unwilling to cede control, even to the newly elected parliament. Many fear the army is now trying to shape a new constitution to its benefit.

Meanwhile the armed forces have huge economic interests and have been opposed to the economic reforms under Gamal Mubarak that took away their monopolies and privileges. Last June, it refused an International Monetary Fund loan for more than 3 billion dollars. But last week it had to cave in and accept that money. All this is occurring as its foreign reserves have plummeted from $36 billion before the revolt to merely $10 billion now. Foreign investment has almost entirely stopped; tourism has seen a 30% decline.

Now, think about the fears voiced in the Western media about post-revolution Egypt: It's all been about the rise of Islam. We keep hearing how the party that swept Egypt's elections, the Muslim Brotherhood, are a force to be feared. We are told stories of how Egypt will become a Sharia state and an enemy of the U.S.

But the real danger to Egyptian democracy is the group that has always been the danger to Egyptian democracy - the military. Until they actually cede power, the Egyptian revolution remains stillborn and the country remains a military dictatorship.

For more of my thoughts throughout the week, I invite you to follow me on Facebook and Twitter and to visit the Global Public Square every day. Also, for more What in the World? pieces, click here.

    "Another cartoon shows him with a pistol. And he's pointing it at an Egyptian man with a cannon. The caption in Arabic says "dignity". The point here is quite clear: Americans are robbing Egyptians of their dignity."

    Close, but in the cartoon the Egyptian man is gesturing towards the cannon, in response to the belligerent/evil looking Uncle Sam caricature. The caption 'dignity' is referring to the dignity of the Egyptian man having this cannon at his disposal...a cannon much bigger then the pistol Uncle Sam has.

    Note the cannon is green and actually looks like it is on a tank. The propaganda message to me is that the Egyptian Army is saying it is here to protect the Egyptian people from a hostile America; a strong Army gives the Egyptians 'dignity'.

    Fayza Adul Noga deals with the NGOs, as she had been appointed by te SCAF as minister of planning and international cooperations. She must have resent the Americans for dropping Hosni Mubarak, the husband of her close friend. By alleging the U.S. was involved in destabilising country she has now consolidated her position as a new populist figure in the post-revolution Egypt. It wouldn't come as a suprise if she ran for president. Perhaps she thought her past as erstwhile foreign minister under Mubarak and an holdover of the old regime in the interim government might open doors for her.

      As seldom as Fareed Zakaria icorrect about anything, he is right about the military being Egypt's greatest threat. Fayza Abul Noga poses another threat as she, if elected, will keep Egypt in the clutches of the right-wing thugs in Washington. On the other hand, Egypt's greatest salvation lies with the Socialists as they seek to fix Egypt's economy and steer it free from foreign control.

  4. 100% ETHIO STRONGER!

    Does the World got any Technological things created by Arab Countries? No! Nothing at all. Arabs are a sleeping giant. They keep snoring in their bedroom, while the Western rolls its sleeves and keep working.
    ***********************************************************
    Of course, the Westerns are the causes of Mindless Arab to rise by Oil Money and to be against non-Arabs in this World.
    At the past, without realizing or ignoring the consequences, the West Build huge High-Tech Weapons and securing the neighbor Country Water resource to Egypt.

    Who did built the high-tech and very expensive Blue-Nile River dam to Egypt, by exposing its neighbor Country-Ethiopia for drought, starvation and wars? The answer is, the West. Specifically, America.

    Who did draft the international water treaty or rule by Manipulating God given Ethiopian natural resource-the Blue-Nile to Egypt? The answer is, the West and in general Europe.

    Who supplied the Multi-Billions of Dollars High-Tech Weapons, B-52 Bomber Jets, Biological warfare Chemical Weapons, Abram Tanks,...to Egypt???!!! The answer is, America! And also, some European Countries.
    During Egypt's uprising in February, 2011, the Protesters in Egypt, who ousted Mubarak, were blaming American Weapons used against them.

    Does America got a lesson or Two??
    Stop Muscling Arabs or face the consequences by Arabs.

  5. Waisting money.

    Why are we wasting our money funding people who turn around and hate us? The United States needs to keep its money at home and not give it away to the East. These people take us fore granted. Take our money, expect aid when ever disasters occur, and turn around and blame every bad thing on them. Keep our money at home.

      I agree! I have no idea why America is so interested in Egypt!! There must be a benefit to Americans to keep supplying millions of dollars to Egypt and believe me it's not from the kindness of their hearts. There is a reason and it is not just about the camp David peace treaty. There is much more to this story but that secret is in the white house and with the dictators that are running Egypt. This makes me worried that in order for the Egyptian people to get their country back, they are not only fighting against the dictators in their own country but in America who wants the dictators to keep running Egypt so that America has control over Egypt with it's money supply. I am starting to think that a weak and obedient Egypt to the west is more important to American than a free and strong Egypt ally. I really hope I am wrong about this...

      Speaking as an Egyptian living in America: I really hope America stops supplying aid to the dictators that run Egypt. If the US really wants Egypt to be free and a strong ally then invest your money in Egyptian businesses to help the country stand on its own two feet. DO NOT give aid to Egypt but unfortunately that will never happen because it seems that the US benefits too much from having Egypt as a weak and powerless country.

      Zakaria failed to mention why the US is still supplying billions of dollars to Egypt. Is it because the US is stupid and likes to throw money away or is it because they like to support the dictators so they have control over Egypt? We all know that the US is not doing this to help Egypt so what's the real story here. I am really interested to know. Mr. Zakaria, Egyptians may have a good reason to hate America. After all, many of them died at the hands of weapons supplied to the military to help keep the currently ruling military in power. Isn't it ironic that you say that the Egyptian military is the biggest threat to Egyptian freedom yet you know very well that America is supplying the military with billions of dollars. Come on now!! That makes no sense. I really disliked your video.

    i don't think you got it right in Egypt, Brotherhood are here with the American Blessing, even they say to the contrary, as for the Military, you can be quite sure that they will not involve in Politics as long as the politicians leave them alone and don't try to drag them on their games, the majority of Egyptians are quite sure that they will hand over the remain of power to the New President, Egypt will go ahead in the reform process faster if the Americans and other keep their distance, thanks

    Ironically, this recent move by the military elite to frame the Egypt's protests as driven by external forces comes after some intellectuals in the Western liberal media accused the West for blocking any democratization process in Egypt. The absolute control of the military over the Egyptian political/economic systems, not to mention the use of torture, are part of Nasser's legacy. Let's not forget that Anti-Westernism is a strong ideological underpinning of Nasserism which is still defining the Egyptian military.

    I've lived in Egypt years before, throughout, and months after the revolution... and it's about time someone in the western world truly notices what is happening in Egypt. The military control about 60% of Egypt's GDP they are not just going to hand it over to a government that is run by a group they have had their heel on for the last 30 or so years.

    فساد ونفط يربط ذهبي مخابرات الاردن بأحمد المالكي والشهرستاني

    في مطار الملكة علياء الدولي تم أواخر الشهر الماضي القاء القبض على الفريق المتقاعد (محمد عبد اللطيف الذهبي) مدير عام دائرة المخابرات الاردنية السابق ونجله عندما كان يعتزم التوجه الى احدى الدول الاوربية , وكان تم طرده الذهبي من منصبه قبل اكثر من ثلاث اعوام بموجب مرسوم ملكي حيث كان تولى رئاسة الجهاز بين عامي ( 2005 لغاية 2007 ). وسبب الطرد كان تورط الذهبي بفضيحة اختلاس وفساد وغسيل اموال والمتاجرة بالجنسية والرقم الوطني والجوازات وإصدارها الى رجال اعمال عراقيين وعرب مقابل مبالغ مالية وصلت الى كل جنسية وجواز ورقم وطني مليون دولار حيث كان قام بها خلال فترة رئاسته لجهاز المخابرات وبعد صدور مذكرة القاء قبض من قبل القضاء الأردني“. وحسب "منظمة عراقيون ضد الفساد" فانها قد اتصلت مع مصدر حكومي عراقي مسؤول مطلع في وزارة النفط ومن خلال اتصال عاجل معه خلال الايام الماضية لغرض شرح تفاصيل الحدث من داخل اروقة القرار العراقي حيث هناك شبهات بتورط مسؤولين ومستشارين ووزراء في حكومة (نوري المالكي) بملف غسيل أموال النفط العراقي المصدر الى الاردن. وافاد المصدر الحكومي المسؤول بأن :” المكتب الخاص بمستشارين نوري المالكي ونجله احمد في حالة من الارباك الشديد والهلع بعد انتشار خبر القاء القبض على مدير المخابرات الاردني السابق (محمد الذهبي) لان هناك علاقة سابقة ووطيدة ربطت الاثنين معآ ومنذ الاشهر الاولى لتولي (نوري المالكي) رئاسة الوزراء الاولى . في حينها أقترح وزير النفط السابق (حسين الشهرستاني) على (نوري المالكي) في اجتماع خاص ضم إضافة الى كل من: (سمير حداد / أبو زينب) القيادي في حزب الدعوة والمشرف العام على جهاز مخابرات حكومة المالكي وكالة , وكذلك (طارق نجم عبد الله / أبو منتظر) مدير مكتب المالكي سابقآ إضافة الى (احمد نوري المالكي) نجل رئيس الوزراء والذي دخل على الخط مؤخرآ لاشتراكه بالاستحواذ على حصته من هذه الاموال بعد ان علم بهذا الموضوع من والده شخصيآ ,ولأنه حاليآ يعتبر المحرك والمسيطر الرئيسي والمشرف العام والمباشر على جميع العقود والمناقصات والمصاريف النثرية التي تخص الامانة العامة لمجلس الوزراء “. ويضيف المسؤول العراقي بأن "الجميع اتفقوا خلال الاجتماع باستغلال فرق السعر المدعوم من النفط العراقي المصدر الى الاردن وبأسعار تفضيلية تقل عن سعره الاصلي في السوق العالمية وإيداع هذه الاموال المتحصلة من وراء فرق الاسعار بحساب خاص وسري في (بنك الاسكان والتجارة الاردني) لغرض تمويل مصاريف (حزب الدعوة) ومقراته وكذلك والاهم شراء الذمم من شيوخ وصحفيين ومثقفين وأساتذة ونواب من غير كتلتهم البرلمانية. ولغرض عدم اثارة هذا الموضوع اعلاميآ أو قضائيآ أو حكوميآ في الاردن فقد دخل على الخط في حينها وأشرك (حسين الشهرستاني) مدير المخابرات الاردني في حينها (محمد الذهبي) في هذا الموضوع مقابل مبالغ مالية طائلة تدفع له وتحول الى حسابه السري الخاص في احد البنوك السويسرية لقاء تدخلاته الشخصية لتسهيل معاملات دخول هذه الاموال المختلسة الى (بنك الاسكان) وطلب منه (الشهرستاني) كذلك بأن يقوم جهاز المخابرات الاردني بتزويد حكومة (نوري المالكي) وبشكل سري ودوري كل ثلاث اشهر بتقارير مفصلة حول اعداد وعناوين وأموال وشركات القيادات البعثية والشخصيات السياسية المستقلة والصحفيين المعارضين لنهج حكومته ,وكانت هذه التقارير المفصلة تصل دوريآ وتباعآ وحسب ما تم الاتفاق عليه وانقطعت لغاية طرد (محمد الذهبي) من جهاز المخابرات , ولكن لا أعلم هل لازالت لغاية الان مستمرة أم لا هذه التقارير السرية المفصلة , حتى ان (الذهبي) كان يمارس ضغوط وابتزاز على شيوخ هيئة علماء المسلمين في عمان وتحديدآ الشيخ حارث الضاري لغرض ثنيهم عن الاستمرار في انتقاد حكومة (المالكي) “. النفط العراقي الى ألأردن ثم الى أسرائيل
    ويواصل المسؤول الحكومي العراقي في توضيحاته متحدثا عن صادرات النفط العراقية الى الاردن وبأسعار تفضيلية أقل بكثير من سعره في السوق العالمية بقوله:” أن قيمة اجمالي ما يصدره العراق من نفطه الى الاردن تبلغ شهريآ 320 الف برميل وبسعر البرميل الواحد 45 دولار أمريكي مع فارق سعر زيادة عن كل برميل مصدر الى الاردن تضعه حكومة (نوري المالكي) بحساب خاص وسري في (بنك الاسكان والتجارة) الاردني ولا يستطيع احد السحب من هذه الاموال المختلسة منذ فتح هذا الحساب إلا فقط كل من (سمير حداد ) و( حسين الشهرستاني) ثم أضيف خلال الاشهر الماضية أسم (احمد نوري المالكي) وهم الذين لهم الحق حصريآ فقط بالسحب من هذه الاموال من البنك والتصرف بها , حيث بلغت قيمة أجمالي الاموال المودعة في بنك الاسكان من جراء فرق اسعار النفط لغاية نهاية سنة 2011 بأكثر من ملياري دولار امريكي “. ويقول المسؤول: هذا مع العلم أن (نوري المالكي) وفي فترة حربه مع خصومه السياسيين من الكتل والأحزاب الاخرى ولغرض شراء دعم أصوات القيادات البعثية المتواجدة في الاردن لغرض نيل رئاسة الوزراء لفترة ثانية ـ وهذا ما حصل بعدها ـ فأنه اصبح يدفع لحوالي الفين من القيادات البعثية المتواجدة في كل من الاردن وسوريا ولبنان مبالغ مالية عبارة عن رواتب وهدايا وإعانات مالية مستمرة من هذه الاموال المودعة في بنك الإسكان “. اعادة تصدير النفط لإسرائيل
    ثم أن هناك مسالة مهمة جدآ ما زالت غير منظورة على الساحة السياسية العراقية , وهي ان قسم من النفط العراقي المصدر الى الاردن يعاد تصديره وتحميله من ميناء العقبة بواسطة بواخر الشحن النفطية الاسرائيلية ويصل الجزء الاكبر منه الى اسرائيل أي ان هناك نفط عراقي مصدر الى الاردن من قبل حكومة (نوري المالكي) وبموافقته يصل الى اسرائيل مباشرة , وقد حدث في نهاية عهد ( محمد الذهبي) خلافات مادية فيما بينهما حول طلب الاخير بزيادة حصته من الاموال النفطية المختلسة نتيجة ارتفاع اسعار النفط في السوق العالمية , وقد تدخلت السفارة الاسرائيلية في عمان بهذا الموضوع لحل الخلاف بين مكتب (نوري المالكي) و(محمد الذهبي) ونجحت السفارة في انهاء الازمة فيما بينهما حفاظا على سهولة واستمرار تدفق النفط العراقي اليها “. دور نائر الجميلي
    وقالت "منظمة عراقيون ضد الفساد" حسب ما توفر لها من معلومات صحفية موثقة من مصادرها الاصلية , انه تبين تبين لها :أن على رأس قائمة رجال الاعمال العراقيين الذين سوف يتم استدعائهم من قبل القضاء الاردني خلال الايام القادمة والذين حصلو على جواز السفر والجنسية والرقم الوطني هو (نائر محمد أحمد الجميلي) وعائلته وأقربائه صاحب شركة (العين الجارية) وكذلك المدعو(قاسم صغير ديب الراوي) وعائلته وهو شريك رئيسي بعقود الفساد بوزارة الدفاع (العراقية) مع المدعو (نائر الجميلي).

    وقالت المصادر ان (نائر الجميلي) وهو بدوره شقيق زوجة وزير الدفاع السابق والمستشار للشؤون العسكرية حاليآ لحكومة (نوري المالكي) سعى جاهدآ لغرض أن يتم تدخلهما سياسيآ واقتصاديآ لدى الحكومة الاردنية والملك عبدالله الثاني "بصفة شخصية" لغرض ارغام القضاء الاردني على غلق ملفه وعدم اثارته اعلاميآ وهذا ما اوضحه من خلال احاديثه خلال الايام الماضية لدى بعض اقربائه وأصدقائه التجار الاخرين الذين سوف يتم استدعائهم من قبل القضاء الاردني لحصولهم على الوثائق والجنسية وأن لم يفعلوا له شيء سوف يفضح جميع ملفات وعقود الفساد وسوف يأخذ معه الى السجن الذين كانوا متورطين معه على حد قوله . ويشار الى انه وحسب ما قالت مصادر تتابع شأن فضيحة الذهبي واركان الحكومة العراقية برئاسة المالكي، فإن موضوع تقديم (محمد الذهبي) الى القضاء الاردني جاء بعد أن نصحت وزارة الخارجية الامريكية الملك عبدالله الثاني في زيارته الاخيرة الى واشنطن بأن يتم تقديم (الذهبي) الى القضاء لغرض امتصاص سخط وغضب الشارع الاردني الذي يخرج كل فترة بمظاهرات وهتافات يطالب فيها بمحاكمة رموز الفساد والمسؤولين في الاردن. ولوحظ انه بعد عودة الملك من رحلته الى اميركا مباشرة، فان القضاء الأردني بدأ بإجراءاته ضد (محمد الذهبي) وتقديمه الى المحاكمة وعدم السماح له بالهرب مهما كلف الامر, خوفآ من كشف الذهبي لبعض أهم رموز الفساد في الاردن والمرتبطين بصورة مباشرة ببعض اعضاء الحكومات الاردنية السابقة والحالية. شكوى ضد الذهبي بالاحتيال بـ 5.5 مليون دينار
    والى ذلك، باشر مدعي عمان القاضي أشرف الحباشنة امس الاول التحقيق في قضية جديدة ضد مدير المخابرات الاسبق محمد الذهبي. وجاءت القضية من طرف ابن وزير التصنيع الحربي العراقي عبد التواب حويش في عهد الرئيس السابق صدام حسين الذي يدعي على الذهبي بتهمة الاحتيال. ومفاد الشكوى ان ابن حويش سلم اشخاصا قالوا انهم مقربون من الذهبي مبلغ 5.5 مليون دينار مقابل توسط الذهبي لدى السلطات العراقية للافراج عن حويش . وحسب الشكوى فان المبلغ سلم الى الاشخاص وعندما اكتشف ابن حويش انه وقع ضحية احتيال تقدم بشكوى الى دائرة المخابرات لكنه ابعد من الاردن. ولكن بعد اقالة الذهبي عاد ابن المسؤول العراقي السابق الى الاردن ليتقدم بشكواه ضد الذهبي.
