Sisi Is Not Abdel Nasser/ Anthony Wilson

Subjugated peoples are always and ever looking for a figure of a person in whose hand he holds the magic stick to achieve their dreams and make their days rosy and their lives full of happiness and enjoyment. They would have a home, a car, a job and live well. This is our situation in Egypt and the Arab world with great regret.   

Egypt and the Arab region passed through volatile conditions and rulers who did not have fidelity and loyalty to their own people even after every one of them swore the oath of allegiance to God, the country and the people. Loyalty then became to the governing self. The people would suffice by charismatic fascination, "a new label for the ruler’s mightiness" enjoyed by His Excellency the President or the king or the governor. Thus they lived, and so will they live, since the days of pre-Islamic era, where they made their gods of "pressed dates" and when they did not find their food, they ate "their gods, made from dates."

The Arab region is experiencing the worst stages which it does not have any option in it; either it is to be or not to be.

If it chooses to be, it will begin the search for a leader who will achieve this entity. They will look for him, unfortunately, the same way they made their gods a little differently, whereas modern Gods are not made of “pressed dates" but must have the prestigious "charisma" and personality feared by the enemy who would start working a thousand accounts and one more account. This is what is happening these days when we started to think about choosing the gallant leader who can save them from where they are after the rule of the None-Brotherhood.

Attention was directed to a military figure who has been credited with saving Egypt and the "Arab Spring" area that America wanted it converted to the "Arab Ruin", so she chose this faction of humans whose hands are stained with the blood of innocent people throughout their existence since their inception in 1928 until today.

It is natural that we know that this military personality is the Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. And in order to emphasize that he is the saviour of choice for Egypt and the region, we started comparing him to the late President Gamal Abdel Nasser. But the truth is that the similarities between them are very few.

Because Sisi is not Abdel Nasser.

Let's revisit the time of Abdel Nasser and the current time for Sisi.

First, the similarities.

* Both graduated from the military, "the Egyptian armed forces", a body known for their competence and loyalty to the homeland and their forces defend the country and sacrifice their blood in order to preserve the safety of the nation and the people.

* Both come from an Egyptian family of moderate means, each was born and grew up among ordinary Egyptians.

* Both have dreams and aspirations for his native Egypt and the Egyptian people. The first, Nasser tried to achieve them, and certainly the second, Sisi would do his utmost to achieve what can be achieved for Egypt and the Egyptian people, with the completion of what Nasser failed to achieve.

* Both faced strong opposition from the United States. Nasser for his presidency. For Sissy, fear of his assumption of power.

* Abdel Nasser was influenced by the 1948 war and what caught up with the Egyptian army as a result of what has been called at that time "corrupt arms" that were used by the Egyptian army when it faced the Zionist enemy in a losing battle.

* Sisi also was influenced by events that were experienced by Egypt after the Brotherhood took over the country, and began to think seriously for the salvation of Egypt.

* Abdel Nasser formed a team of loyal officers of the armed forces in secret, the so-called "free officers" to work on the rebellion against the king and the government in a military coup that would enable them to achieve good for Egypt.

* Sisi waited for the popular initiative at the hands of Egypt's youth to revolt against the rule of Non-Brothers.

After the success of the young people in the campaign to collect millions of consents of the people of Egypt; men, women, and young men and women and their desire to overthrow the ruling regime, which diverged from the legitimacy granted by the people to serve Egypt and the Egyptian people. Sisi and his fellow leaders of the branches of the armed forces were  encouraged on the cohesion with the legitimate demands of the people and which the "armed forces" empowered them the right to stand with the people and isolate former President Mohamed Morsi and his removal from power, and not to seize power."

Second; aspects of the difference between them.

* Gamal Abdel Nasser found it difficult to join the armed forces because of his social status at the time.

* Sisi was not hindered by his middle social status to join the armed forces.

"But with great regret, the Egyptian Christian is still hampered by his Christianity from entering the armed forces. In the case on his enlisting, he is moved away from the performance of his national role in some military tasks." I apologize for diverging from the subject, but a thing is remembered with its alternative

* Gamal Abdel Nasser executed a coup when he was only a Major in the army.

* Sisi was able to progress up in military ranks and the military intelligence service which qualified him to see much of what is going on around him inside and outside the armed forces, which raised the fears of the Brotherhood when Morsi took the helm. Their fears were undoubtedly revolved around dismantling the strength and ability of the armed forces in responding to any attempts against Egypt. And Sisi’s military status had its fears for them.

* The Brotherhood paved the way for Abdel Nasser and his colleagues to move quickly after the events of a fire in Cairo on January 26, 1952. So he selected Wednesday, July 23rd, as the day of action to get rid of the reign of the King. Nasser was able to reach the helm of power after the overthrow of General Mohamed Najib, the first of the Egyptian presidents. 
* What was done by the Muslim Brotherhood after the inauguration of Morsi as president of the country, made Sisi fidget of what he saw, heard and lived. But he kept silent waiting for the legal and legitimate opportunity that would be given to him by the people to get rid of the rule of the Brotherhood. The people did give him through a rebellion movement which is considered rightfully a popular referendum to isolate Morsi; as well as the cohesion of the people with Sisi on 3 of July 2013. But the people are waiting for his official candidacy for the presidency or knowledge of his role in the near future.

After the Tripartite Attack, "England, France and Israel" on Egypt, and the U.S. President Eisenhower at the time stopping them and ordering them to withdraw; Nasser began to aspire to a greater role for him outside Egypt. He participated in many conferences and helped rebellious states on their rulers. A "joke" was launched at the time that Abdel Nasser was informed of a revolution on the ship "Bounty", so he declared siding with the rebels of the ship "bounty".

Furthermore, he wanted the Arab leadership, but the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia confronted him, sparking his rage, so he attacked King Saud in one of his speeches. And he even helped with Egyptian Armed Forces to enter the war in Yemen, despite that Egypt did not have any business in that war between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The costs of that war were a million Egyptian pounds per day, which made an impact on the state budget and overturned the standards of living for middle-income earners.

* Notably, Egyptian relationship with the Arabian Gulf began to take a completely different shape, especially after the events of isolating Morsi and the emergence of Sisi on the political arena. The fact cannot be ignored that in the Sadat era the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia contributed to the pumping of huge sums of money to buy the weapons needed by Egypt for the war against the Zionists in what came to be known as the glorious October war on the 6th of October 1973, and which I declared the day of the sad victory. I will come back to the Gulf countries currently and their cooperation with Egypt that it may be that Sisi would be the next Egyptian president if he ran for presidency; making the Egyptian Arab unity return back to the reality that had a crack in Nasser’s days and during the rule of the Brotherhood. This is evident in spite of the existence of the rogue State of Qatar so afar from the Gulf states, and weaving conspiracies against Egypt and the Egyptian people, and not wishing that Sisi would get to power and this in itself is a risk index for Egypt and the rest of the Gulf states.

And do not forget those war games between Egypt and the United Arab Emirates and Sisi going in military uniform to watch those manoeuvres. It rocked the chair of the U.S. administration making Obama prepare for a visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Egypt is at a critical and dangerous stage. Egypt is surrounded by enemies ready to destroy it and the elimination of the Egyptian people, steadfast against all the attempts of the Non-Brotherly to subjugate Sisi and the Egyptian people to return to the rule of Egypt even though they destroy it. America, the mother sponsoring them is up and ready with the necessary funding to carry out their wicked dream.

We ask ourselves, what happens if Egypt fell, God forbid? And also what is the return on the Gulf States for their solidarity with Egypt, especially if  Sisi accepts to run and wins in the elections? These questions are of great importance, I think.

There is no doubt that the fall of Egypt means Obama's success in breaking the Egyptian rock, the only drawback for him and his non-Muslim brothers. And installing the Brotherhood feet in the Arab Spring area, and therefore comes the role upon the Arabian Gulf and the Arab presence is erased from the map of the Middle East, which will become "the Dirtiest East" at the hands of the traitors, the blood traders. Israel would rejoice and the Hamasites in Gaza would beat the drums and trill, and it remains that Safwat Hijazi and his entourage would meet me if they thought of Jerusalem where they are going in their millions.

The answer to the second question, and also what is the return on the Gulf States for their solidarity with Egypt, especially if Sisi accepts to run and wins in the elections? 
I will tell your honours what is the return in my humble opinion.

The Gulf countries have aspirations like the developing countries which have the potential whether with the oil or the construction and reconstruction in the latest modern technology. Youth and young girls of the Gulf states are learning in the best universities in the world, and obtaining academic degrees in all branches of science, literature and scientific on the same level.

The people of the Gulf know Egypt’s educational value in the region, and appreciate the learned Egyptian and respect him, especially seeing right among them a lot of the greatest minds of Egyptians who migrated and worked in the Diaspora that had opened their arms and they gave it their knowledge and their scientific and practical ability. And this way, it returns back to the Arabian Gulf, and the Arab Spring after its upswing and the expulsion of the Brotherhood and their rule, to a scientific strength to be reckoned with.

Hence, a new Middle East will be generated; its Arabs not being ignorant and have no one to direct them to where they don’t want to. And to Egypt would return its Egyptian, and to the Egyptian people their ability that was neglected by each of the eras of "Brotherhood / Sadat / Mubarak", the shadowy eras.
