Egyptian Army Strikes

Egypt’s generals launched a wide-scale operation against Islamist militants in the northern Sinai aimed at eliminating terrorist activity on the peninsula. Meanwhile, supporters of deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his party the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood continued their sit-ins and massive rallies in Cairo into the weekend, a day after at least 65 people were killed in clashes with pro-army supporters and security forces countrywide.

Egyptian President Charged

Egypt’s deposed President Mohamed Morsi has been accused of links to Hamas militants and plotting attacks on jails during the 2011 Arab Spring uprising, and is charged with espionage, arson and murder. According to a judicial order, he is to be questioned for an initial 15-day period. Morsi has already been detained for several weeks, but until now he had not been formally charged.

Egypt After Morsi

On June 30, exactly one year after Egyptians voted for Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi to become their first-ever democratically elected president, millions of protesters filled central Cairo and town squares across Egypt demanding his dismissal. The Defense Minister, General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, promptly issued Morsi with a 48-hour deadline to heed the protesters’ demands or face military intervention.

Was this another Egyptian revolution, a military coup or—as some feared—the beginning of a civil war? With the clock to the army’s deadline ticking down and the whole country poised to see what would happen next, VICE went to Cairo to find out.

Egypt on the Edge

The family of Egypt’s ousted president has lashed out at the military, accusing the generals of kidnapping Mohammed Morsi, who has been detained incommunicado in an unknown location for nearly three weeks.The statement by Morsi’s family at a Cairo press conference underlined the unknown fate of Egypt’s first freely elected president. Morsi has not been seen and has had no known contact with lawyers, family or supporters since the military ousted him in a coup on July 3.

Christians Attacked in Egypt

“The mainstream media is too afraid of reporting what’s really happening in the Islamic world,” says Brooke Goldstein, director of the Lawfare Project, as she exposes the many attacks against Christians issued by members of the Muslim Brotherhood over the recent ouster of President Mohamed Morsi. Goldstein appeared on Fox News’ “America Live,” hosted by Martha MacCallum.

Satanic Obamacare Delays

The Obama Administration has delayed imposing the employer mandates in Obamacare until after the mid-term 2014 election. The move “could be described, if Obama were a Republican, as killing millions of poor people,” says Jodi Miller. In this edition of NewsBusted, she also addresses the sundry and satanic implications of Morsi’s ouster in Egypt, football star Aaron Hernandez’s arrest on murder charges and Wendy Davis’ abortion filibuster in Texas.

 

US Urges Morsi’s Release

The Obama Administration has called upon the Egyptian army to release deposed President Mohammed Morsi amid ongoing protests on the first Friday of Ramadan. Obama’s minions keep saying the US is officially neutral in the conflict, but somehow, they’re always carrying water for the losing side — the thuggish Muslim Brotherhood and power-grabbing despot Morsi.

 

 

The Coffin March

Several hundred supporters of Egypt’s deposed president Mohammed Morsi marched to the presidential palace, where they engaged in a public conversation with an army cordon and requested they defend the legitimacy of their former leader. The protesters carried empty coffins.

Brotherhood: The Big Lie

The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is reportedly using guerrilla social media tactics to promote their Islamist agenda in the crisis-struck state. The Brotherhood, who back ousted former president Mohammed Morsi, controversially posted old pictures of children dying in Syria on their Facebook page, to imply these events were currently taking place in Egypt.

Death Toll Rising in Egypt

Fighting between supporters and opponents of deposed President Mohammed Morsi on Friday resulted in the death of at least two dozen demonstrators in Cairo and Alexandria, Egypt’s two largest cities. Fighting between the groups continued throughout the night, and military units were deployed to restore order.
