Israel lobbying U.S., EU to support Egypt’s military government


Jewish Journal

The Israeli government is pressing its efforts to convince the United States and the European Union to support the military-backed government in Egypt.

The New York Times reported late Sunday that Israeli ambassadors in Washington and the European capitals will lobby foreign ministers, and that Israeli leaders will urge diplomats to see the Israeli viewpoint that the Egyptian military will prevent a further deterioration of the situation in Cairo.

The newspaper cited an unnamed “senior Israeli official involved in the effort.”

“If you insist on big principles, then you will miss the essential — the essential being putting Egypt back on track at whatever cost,” the official told the Times. “First, save what you can, and then deal with democracy and freedom and so on. At this point it’s army or anarchy.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered government officials to refrain from publicly discussing the situation in Egypt.

Israel reportedly has been lobbying American officials hard to sustain the annual $1.5 billion in U.S. aid to Egypt. President Obama has threatened to withhold the aid over a violent government crackdown on demonstrations in support of ousted President Mohamed Morsi that has resulted in more than 800 deaths since last week.

Last week, Obama canceled a planned joint military exercise with Egypt over the bloodshed.

Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who led the military coup that ousted Morsi, developed close ties with Israel when he headed Egypt’s military intelligence, according to the Times, and has remained in close contact with Israel throughout the recent violence and bloodshed.

    Somebody needs to explain why Israel is so insistant that the USA and EU and others work with and for the military-govt of Egypt.
    It was a bloody-coup that took place over that first weekend in July, and as such, all aid MUST be suspended. Since the lunatic-state wants it to be ignored as what it was (COUP), we must continue arming those who are murdering their countrymen.
    Why would this be important to Israelis? It means more dead Muslims and Arabs and they don’t even need to lift a finger…
    So we all need to just wake=up, and i particularly mean; OBAMA. But, since he is a creation of the Zionists and by the Zionists, this is not going to happen.

    This whole flurry of stories today about how “Israel” is “behind the coup” and how it is “pressing US to aid the military” and Egyptian “Jews” support the military too, wreak to me of a psy-op. “Since these smart goyim have got our number, we can reasonably presume that anything we come out in favor of, the smart goyim will oppose. Therefore, if we really oppose the Egyptian military, we ought to start ramping up the propaganda that we support it, then the smart goyim will be tricked into supporting our REAL position!” is how the reasoning would go. Hey, is it really so far fetched? I don’t think so. I think this is a very probable scenario. Any thoughts?

    Well, this is always a possibility, but I don’t think they are quite smart enough to plan such a thing.
    I really do think that whatever they put out in the US newz is what is opposite. And we are all being told it IS the MB doing this, and the military is behaving wonderfully, even patiently.

    Their psy-ops may have progressed to the level you’ve put out, but I really don’t think so. For, the majority of Americans still believe what they hear on teevee and what they hear is? This IS the MB doing all of this and, as such, the MB is comprised of only terrorist, “islamists” (a non-word I have come to abhor.)

    Satan-yahoo is not begging the US government or the EU to support the military in Egypt but he is ordering them to do so.
