Revolution In Egypt: Is Israel Providing Weapons For Mubarak's Regime?

We are all watching the events closely in Egypt hoping that eventually the will of the Egyptian people prevails, and Hosni Mubarak is either forced to step down, or to flee that nation.   As I have stated before in previous articles, the brutal dictatorship that Mubarak has imposed on the people of Egypt for 30 years has to end.  The people are finally saying "Enough is enough!" and want to taste true freedom for the first time in their lives.   

But reports are now coming forward today that the United States and their masters in Israel are bound and determined to support Mubarak's regime at all cost.  I want to present this interesting article from PressTV at www.presstv.ir, where there are indications coming out that Israel is now providing Mubarak's regime with weapons to crush the people's revolution! Here is that article for all of my own readers to view:

'Israel provides weapons for Egypt'

Mon Jan 31, 2011 3:5AM

People defy a government curfew as they continue to occupy Tahrir Square on January 30, 2011 in Cairo, Egypt.
Israel has provided the Egyptian government with weapons amid the country's popular uprising demanding the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, reports say.


The reports followed phone conversations between the US, Egyptian and Israeli defense ministers as the anti-government protests entered the seventh day on Monday.

Egyptian Defense Minister Mohamed Hussein Tantawi has warned the protesters against defying curfew that has now been extended and is to be in place from 3 p.m. to 8 a.m. local time.

On Thursday, an Israeli cabinet minister who spoke on condition of anonymity to Israeli media had stated that the Egyptian president backed by a strong militarily prowess will eventually subdue the crisis, The Washington Post reported.

"His regime is well-rooted in the military and security apparatus," said the Israeli minister, adding that, "They will have to exercise force, power in the street and do it. But they are strong enough according to my assessment to overcome it," the Israeli minister had said.

The protesters took to the streets in the sixth day of demonstrations on Sunday despite the warnings and the presence of the army.

The armed forces have threatened a crackdown on anyone who refuses to obey the curfew imposed in major cities.

Meanwhile, Mubarak reportedly visited an army military operations center and met with top army commanders and troops at their headquarters.

Following the visit, the army has received orders to open fire on the protesters in a bid to protect the Mubarak-run regime, according to the Muslim Brotherhood's website.

NTS Notes: If this supplying of arms to Egypt by Israel is true, then again we know exactly on who's side the US and Israel truly are in this fight for the rights of the proud people of Egypt.  They will support their tinpot dictator Mubarak that they have propped up for the last 30 years until the bitter end, obviously!



Again as I have stated before, we should all care about the rights of people everywhere to decide their own future without outside interference.  Do not the people of Egypt not have that right to decide their own future? And one that is not imposed on them by the US and Israel? 


More to come
