Eisen en opvattingen van demonstanten in Egypte

Dit document is vandaag op het Tahrirplein in Cairo verspreid en lijkt de gemeenschappelijke houding van de demonstranten te verwoorden. Orspronkelijk document is in Arabisch. Voor wat het waard is.

The Drive to Find and Be Fortified by the Truth

We, the sons and daughters of Egypt who took part in the protests from January 25, 2011 and till now declare: NO. OUR DEMANDS HAVE NOT BEEN MET

Only Mubarak – and not the protestors – can save the country and the stock exchange, and return the country to normal life, etc:
1. only if he steps down
2. and only if a national interim government to save the country is established headed by the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court, which would include the honest people of this land, to replace the government of Mr. Ahmed Shafik, which is part of the previous government with some new faces
3. and only if the Peoples’ Assembly - which is illegal as admitted by Mubarak himself in his speech yesterday - is disbanded
4. and only if a new constitution is drafted.

The System has decreased our army, which is our protection against Israel in Sinai, and has formed a secret army of thugs pitted against the Egyptians who are demanding their rights in a peaceful manner.

Mubarak – in his deal with the Americans – is sacrificing the people and the country in return for keeping his chair, the safety of his wealth, and a place for him and his family.

And in his deal with the Americans, Mubarak is not ensuring a peaceful transfer of government, but he is ensuring a replacement puppet government with new faces

He is involving the country in a civil war, where secret police wear civilian clothes, and unarmed protestors are hit with burning Molotov bombs and tramped by horses and camels, ambulances are prevented from saving the injured, and food and medical aid are prevented from reaching them; and he claims he is preserving the security of the country.

He says in his speech that the honest police force is to preserve the security of the country, then he orders the police to withdraw from all parts of the country, after he has released convicts and armed them, leaving the internal front exposed.

The System, the businessmen, and the politicians who benefit from him send the System’s thugs and a secret police force from the Ministry of the Interior dressed in civilian clothes, with horses and camels, and armed with knives and other bladed weapons, to trample the peaceful protestors and slaughter them.

Mubarak’s secret army throws Molotov bombs on the honest protestors who are calling for peaceful protests.

Mubarak claims he is preserving the future of this country, then burns its history (the Egyptian Museum) with Molotov bombs to pressure the honest protestors, because he knows well that the youthful protestors fear for their history in the same way that they fear for their mothers or their sisters.


1. The announcement that the President is stepping down and is being replaced by the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court.

2. Abolishment of the Emergency Law and all laws that limit freedoms, and a declaration of general amnesty for the original and supplementary sentences that follows all the exceptional court trials of politicians, as well as the release of all those incarcerated due to exceptional sentences because of their political opinions and positions.

3. The independence of the judiciary.

4. The formation of a national interim government formed of honest experts (technocrats), with no party or sectarian agendas, to run the country.

5. The disbandment of the Peoples’ Assembly and the Shoura Council, as well as the local councils.

6. The formation of a “Committee of Wise People” formed of legislators and honest experts to draft a new constitution.

7. Holding free and honest parliamentary elections including all factions without prevention or exception, under full judiciary and popular supervision.

8. Immediate freezing of all holdings abroad of Egyptian officials, and coordination with all governments to prevent the transfer of these holdings until the conclusion of investigations to determine the source of these holdings.

9. Bringing to trial the former Minister of the Interior, Mr. Habib El-Adly, for charges of high treason for the following reasons:
• Withdrawing the security forces from all over the country
• Opening the prisons for the convicts to escape, and providing the convicts with weapons, which they used for terrorizing the citizens and destroying public establishments, in cooperation with the Secret Police.
• Shooting live bullets at the protestors who were calling for peaceful demonstrations

10. Bringing to trial the Mafia of NDP representative in the Peoples’ Assembly, and their soldiers, the drug thugs, who killed our sons and daughters – the unarmed protestors in Tahrir Square – by trampling them with horses and camels, burning them with Molotov bombs, and by shooting them with live bullets, on Wednesday and Thursday February 2 & 3, 2011 – the second Day of Treason by the System in a week, with more to come.

11. Bringing to trial Mr. Ahmed Ezz and the confiscation of all his wealth.

And we suggest that during negotiations with the Government, the Egyptian people should be represented by the following experts, who are honest and are concerned with the welfare of the country (you can look them all up on the Internet to learn about each of them):
1. Nobel Laureate Dr. Ahmed Zewail
2. Mr. Amr Moussa – long time Egyptian politician and current Secretary General of the Arab League
3. Counsellor Dr. Gawdat El- Malt - President of the Central Auditing Organization (CAO)
4. Dr. Galal Amin – writer/intellectual who is concerned with the study and analysis of the history of the Egyptians
5. Economist Dr. Ahmed Al-Najjar – of Al-Ahram Center for Political & Strategic Studies. All his studies are concerned with the problems of Egypt’s economy.
6. Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb – Sheikh Al-Azhar. A moderate intellectual and thinker.
7. Mohamed Refa’a El-Tahtawy – Former Assistant to the Egyptian Foreign Minister, and current Ambassador.

Q: Why do we reject the government that Mubarak has formed?
1. Because more than half of the new government are from the previous corrupt government.
2. Because the new Minister of the Interior and his men have not yet participated in the legitimate activities of the Ministry such as the preservation of the people’s security and serving the people. He only changed the motto of the Ministry and changed the clothes of the forces to civilian clothes, and used thugs to form his new troops.
3. The Minister of the Interior and his men are using Molotov bombs, bladed weapons, live bullets, horses and camels, to kill, suppress, and terrorize the unarmed protestors who are calling for peaceful protests. The Minister and his men are also preventing medical aid and food from getting to the peaceful protestors. If this is not being done by the Minister and his men, then by whom ????? And why do they stand by watch ????? And if the Minister of the Interior does not know who is doing these things, then who else can know????

Q: Why do we reject Mr. Omar Soliman?

Because there are many marks and questions about him, such as:
1. His relationship to the suspect gas deal with Israel which was won by a businessman who is a close personal friend of the Head of the Israeli Mossad Mr. Shabtai Shavit ,, who is himself a close friend of Mr. Omar Soliman.
2. Israel considers him to be the only guarantor of the Peace Process. Why could that be?
3. He is known for his many rights infringements in his relationship with the Moslem groups in the 90’s, as well as his coordination with the American CIA regarding the network of secret prisons for apprehension and torture of dissidents against the New World Order.

Hoi Anoniem,realistische berichtgeving?? Zeer eenzijdige berichtgeving zul je bedoelen.

Wij worden hier allemaal wijs gemaakt dat er géén enorme grote zwijgende meerderheid is die achter Moebarak staan,wij horen niets over de vreedzame Egyptenaars die na de toezeggingen van Moebarak gewoon naar huis zijn gegaan.Jammer dat de journalisten van onze linkse staatsomroep de ozo zielige demonstranten niet eens vraagt naar hun opvattingen over de toekomstige relatie met het volk van Israel,over ongelovigen,homo's,cartoontekenaars enz.Hier bij ons worden de geesten rijp gemaakt en word ook de moslim broederschap neer gezet als een clubje zeer vredelievende democraten.
Gelukkig mocht de mooie Koptisch Ned.Egypt.deskundige Monique Samuel toch nog fff zeggen dat ze de moslimbroederschap helemaaaaaaaal niet zo vertrouwd!
Zij ziet de bui al hangen,Jos is al helemaal om,vrees ik.

Wat tekenend dat in Nederland nu ook de discussie over Egypte verzandt in een links-rechts discussie.

Mij zijn echter de ogen open gegaan. Het westen heeft, puur uit eigen belang, de ontwikkeling in het Midden-Oosten, de onderdrukking van miljoenen mensen, willens en wetens in stand gehouden. Hoe walgelijk.

Dit betekent niet dat er geen zorgen zijn in het Midden-Oosten. Immers ook de weg naar democratie in het westen is veelal een lange, helaas bloederige, strijd geweest. Toch heb ik goede hoop dat dit proces, met dank aan het internet, in het Midden-Oosten weleens veel vlotter zou kunnen gaan.

Als ze de kans maar krijgen.
