Ever since assuming the office of the Presidency, Morsi has worked resolutely to portray himself as a moderate Islamist working independent of American influence for the betterment of Egypt and the region. But beneath the veneer of Islamic rhetoric surrounding his domestic and foreign policy actions, Morsi is no better than his predecessor Mubarak- the former gatekeeper of American interests in the region. On the domestic front, Morsi can claim that the opposition has not allowed his government enough time to push through reforms that will address the Egypt's battered economy, restore law and order, and improve the lives of the ordinary Egyptian people. This is despite the fact that such reforms are formulated under the auspices of IMF stipulations for Egypt's government to revise its economic agenda in order to qualify for the $4.8 billion loan. IMF spokesman Gerry Rice said, "We understand the Egyptian authorities have b een working on revising their economic program. And once this step is completed, we will discuss the timing of a possib le mission to Cairo to assess the revised program." The delay has prompted America's rating agency Moody to downgrade Egypt's credit worthiness. Thus America's economic enslavement of Egypt continues via the IMF and Moody regardless of the claims made by Morsi's government of following an independent economic policy. On the foreign policy front Morsi cannot conceal his pro-American credentials behind the wall of protestors, which include people from all walks of life. Morsi's foreign policy is distinctively American and in many ways is more brutal than Mubarak's era. On February 13th 2013, Egypt without warning flooded Gaza tunnels that are a life blood to the Palestinians living in concentration camp-like conditions in Gaza, which for all intents and purposes is controlled by the cowardly Jewish state. The tunnels bring in everything from food and medicine to cement and iron, providing up to 75 percent of the goods to a population of 1.6 million people. An Egyptian security official in the Sinai told Reuters the campaign started five days ago. He said, "We are using water to close the tunnels b y raising water from one of the wells." Hamas has been reluctant to criticise Morsi in public, but Gazans are more outspoken about the Hamas's naivety and Morsi's brutality. "Egyptian measures against tunnels have worsened since the election of Morsi. Our Hamas b rothers thought he would open up Gaza. I guess they were wrong," said a tunnel owner, who identified himself only as Ayed, fearing reprisal. "Perhaps 150 or 200 tunnels have b een shut since the Sinai attack. This is the Morsi era," he added. So Morsi's government has used the attacks on Egyptian forces in Sinai in August 2012 to spearhead a ruthless campaign to close as many tunnels as possible and bolster the security of the Jewish state ahead of the much anticipated resumption of the dormant peace process. With Palestinian unity talks planned in the days ahead, Netanyahu weakened by the recent elections and Obama scheduled to visit the Jewish state in March 2013, Washington is keen to create the right atmosphere to give a vital push for peace between the Arabs and the Jewish state. Central to the commencement of peace talks is the security of the Jewish state, and Morsi like his predecessor is doing his utmost to meet American and Jewish expectations. Nonetheless, the timing of the recent operation is intended to mollify Jewish criticism of America's delivery of four F16 aircraft to the Egyptian air force. Likewise, Morsi's close ties with Iran to find a political solution to the crisis in Syria that preserves remnants of Assad's regime bears the hallmark of America's intended solution. America has been working tirelessly with Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Gulf countries as well as with the EU and Russia to protect Assad's regime in some form through a variety of initiatives the latest being the Brahimi Plan This will ensure the continuation of its hegemony over the Levant. Within this context Morsi visited Tehran in September 2012 and spoke of Iran as a pivotal stakeholder in finding a solution to the Syrian crisis. He said, "[Iran] a main player in the region that could have an active and supportive role in solving the Syrian prob lem... I don't see the presence of Iran in this quartet (Turkey, Egypt, Iran and Saudi Arab ia) as a prob lem, b ut is a part of solving the prob lem." This also explains why Morsi a few days ago warmly greeted Ahmadinejad the butcher of Syria. His treatment of the Iranian president attracted the ire of some of Morsi's close supporters such as Daawa Salafiyya which issued a statement: "Egypt is committed to the protection of all Sunni nations." Hence within a space of a few months Morsi has managed to surpass Mubarak and do what his predecessor failed to do i.e. forge a working relationship with Iran to safeguard America's interests in the Levant. America is mightily pleased with the domestic and foreign policy actions undertaken by Morsi's government. On

February 3rd 2013, U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson said, "We look to Egypt to continue to serve as a force for peace, security and leadership as the Middle East proceeds with its challenging yet essential journey towards democracy." There are important lessons for Egyptians to learn from Morsi's rule. First, by simply calling for the ouster of a brutal dictator only to be replaced by someone who overtly expresses his faith in Islam is a folly of enormous proportions and will not change the plight of the people. Second, the real cause of misery for Egyptians is the current system through which America continues to colonise the country. Unless the system is eradicated from its roots people will continue to suffer under America's colonial policies implemented by its loyalists in the present regime-be they Islamists or liberals. Third, the only alternative to the present decadent system is the Islamic Shariah, and not Western liberal democracy as advocated by the short-sighted liberals. Western liberal democracy along with capitalism is dying and even people in the West are eagerly looking for an alternative system. But for Islamic Shariah to succeed, it has to be implemented holistically not in a piece meal fashion as championed by Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters. Fourthly, the only practical way to realise the implementation of the Shariah in domestic and foreign policy areas is through the re-establishment of the Caliphate. Only the Caliphate can guarantee an independent economic and foreign policy free from Western interference. Abed Mostapha 06 Rabi' II 1434 16/02/2013 Hits: 1012 Email This Bookmark Set as favorite
