I am well aware that we live in an age during which the visual media has overtaken print media, and that the latter is bound to retract. However, I believe it is important that print media should record and document a portion of the visual media, local or international, which tackles impactful issues that serve to awaken awareness of missing facts that should be learned, or firm convictions that must be rectified.
In this context, I feel an obligation to share with my readers a valuable testimony by writer and intellectual Wassim al-Sisi, which he cited on 21 January 2023 when hosted by the talk show ++al-Qahira (Cairo)++ on satellite channel TEN. I am keen to shed light on Dr Sisi’s talk since it tackled a very serious issue which might most probably be missed by those who never saw the show. Such is the case with content on visual media, whereas items in print are always available.
The issue on the table concerned Egyptian young people who, according to Dr Sisi, form opinions and adopt stances basing on fleeting, superficial criteria. Sadly, the intellectual elite is failing its role to educate the young on the roots and facts that would enable them to look into their past, contemplate their present, and adequately plan their future. So what did Dr Sisi say?
“You talk of the role of the cultural elite; I ask them: Have you spread culture among the multitude of youth?” Dr Sisi questioned. “This angry youth that relentlessly criticise, curse and attack Egypt, and brag that they do not believe in ‘conspiracy theory’. I ask you to send your reporters to the street to ask those youth what they know about the Moshe Sharett and Ben Gurion scheme, about the Bernard Louis scheme known as “the New Middle East” which was presented by Zbigniew Brzezinski, US National Security Advisor to late President Carter, to the US Congress in 1983. In fact, the Congress discussed and approved the New Middle East project, and recorded in a secret session that it fosters a future systematic strategic plan that successive US governments must implement regardless of the ruler.” Ever since this date, Dr Sisi pointed out, we have been actually witnessing the execution of that plan which includes the following:
- Dividing Iraq into three States, a Shiite State with a capital in Basra, a Sunni State with Baghdad as its capital, and a Kurdish State with its capital in Mosul. This has come true.
- Dividing Sudan into a Sunni State with Khartoum as its capital, a Christian State in the south with a capital in Juba—this was achieved in 2011—and an eastern State in the Darfur region.
- Dividing Egypt into several regions. Sinai and the East Delta would be swallowed up by Israel so as to realise the dream of “Greater Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates”; this involves the deportation of the people of Gaza to Egypt. A Christian State would be set up in the North Delta and the North Coast, with its capital in Alexandria, an Islamic State extending from the south of the Delta to Assiut in Upper Egypt with Cairo as its capital, and a Nubian State extending from southern Upper Egypt through the Nubia region to Nuba in northern Sudan, with its capital in Aswan.
“The chapters of this gruesome scheme have borne fruit in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen,” Dr Sisi said, “and is ongoing in Sudan. But Egypt defied the scheme, and this has thwarted the realisation of an essential part of the plan, therefore infuriating the planners.
“The roots of the scheme go back to a talk between Moshe Sharett and Ben Gurion. Sharett said: ‘Israel is a drop surrounded by an ocean of hatred’. And so the scheme that aimed at securing Israel was woven by global Zionism. Its most important tool was the US; US Senator William Fulbright said 20 years ago that Jews in the US are in control of all that controls minds, stomachs and instincts; he even said that New York might be fittingly renamed Jew York. Accordingly, Fulbright was dismissed from his position a few months following his declaration.
Back to the Sharett-Ben Gurion talk, Sharett said that the nuclear weapons owned by the US are worthless to Israel since they involve hazards that make their use prohibitive. In case it is fired against any Arab capital, Sharett said, the atomic dust will fall on Israel. The solution, Sharett said, is to destroy the three great nations around Israel: Iraq, Syria and Egypt. To do that, he explained, all that is needed is to create and promote religious and sectarian rifts, and to bargain not on Israeli genius but on the mindlessness of the other parties. This is what happened, Dr Sisi said: “we have seen and still witness the collapse and destruction of Arab countries owing to the mindlessness of their people and their religious and sectarian conflicts, coupled with armed militias.”
Those who see themselves as “the intellectual elite” in our nation, Dr Sisi proceeded, fall short of any positive contribution towards educating the people about history and the conspiracies that have been and are being woven against our region in order to fragment it and destroy it. Furthermore, Dr Sisi said, we need to shed light on the greatness of Egypt which has defied these conspiracies thanks to the solidarity of its people and their unity with its leadership and army.
I was especially keen to present the view of my friend Dr Wassim al-Sisi, so that we all grasp it well and hold on to our unity which has time and again broken conspiracies and diabolical schemes. Of course, these conspiracies will never stop and will keep attempting to bring Egypt to its knees and destroy it. Let us not be fooled by the successive presidential meetings between our astute leadership and the leaders of these countries which brag about Egypt’s importance and strategic weight, and feign their keenness to cooperate with us on all levels, while concealing diabolical intentions and schemes woven behind closed doors, relentlessly aiming to bring Egypt down. We thank the Lord that our leadership is fully aware of this, and manages Egypt’s foreign relations and national security with wisdom and shrewdness.
