Press TV has conducted an interview with Saeb Shaath, an author and Middle East affairs expert in Belfast, about the pro- and anti-Morsi demonstrations in Egypt and the situation on the ground in the African country. The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.

Press TV: What do you think is happening basically on the ground? It seems that since several days now that Morsi has been overthrown that each day we see more and more violence and it appears less and less stability.

Looking now in hindsight four or five days later, was the coup a very good idea or should it have gone the way of actually trying to get rid of Mr. Morsi, if that’s what they wanted to do, via early election?

Sha’ath: First of all Mr. Morsi created a lot of enemies within Egypt and outside Egypt. And Egypt was scared that sectarian war was going to break out since he didn’t condemn the killing of Shiites in Cairo – in a village beside Cairo.

He was addressing a scholars’ conference or gathering in Cairo while he was holding the Free Syrian flag – the French colonization of Syria flag. He then sabotaged Egypt’s relationship with, with Syria and called on and  supported Jihadists to go to Syria – this is when the Egyptian Army distanced itself.

The Egyptian Army as well have some sort of score with him since 15 soldiers were killed in Egypt in the Sinai last year; and then  another 7 were kidnapped and released later on. All of this was done by some sort of Jihadist groups, which the Egyptian Army believes is supported by the Muslim Brotherhood movement. So they were trying to bring chaos and to take the Sinai out of Egypt – That’s one of the things.

The other part of it – everyday life in Egypt worsened: the supplies of oil; the unemployment levels; the violence against women – a lot of things. The Egyptian people refused as they were seeing their country being taken from underneath them and just ruled by one party, the Muslim Brotherhood Party.

They even kicked their partners in the beginning the NOUR Party, which we see now supporting this move. And I cannot call this myself a pure sort of coup since there are 33 million people that came out in the streets against Morsi.

I didn’t know why then he didn’t call for a referendum on his own presidency. Maybe he would have stopped that kind of takeover or even stopped the army from taking issuing the Road Map.

Press TV: With all that being said let’s look at the status on the ground right now, a very, very sensitive situation that some are saying it could actually turn into a civil war. My point is do you think there could have or should have been another option or do you think the option that was taken as you said the millions of people that have taken to the street was the best option – and now what basically is the plan for Egypt?

Sha’ath: Egypt is going to avoid any kind of civil war or violence, since the Muslim Brotherhood if they call for violence, which they have lately, and that’s one of the points that would be put against Morsi and  Mourshid (the Supreme Guide- the leader) of the Muslim Brotherhood, calling for violence.

They cannot turn Egypt into an Algerian scenario or a Syrian scenario. That’s exactly and precisely what the Arab masses in Egypt and all over the Arab world are sick of – violence in the name of Islam.

Tarnishing  Islam by killing others or by sectarian little wars here and there – they wanted to avoid that. They thought Egypt was going to plunge into that kind of chaos and they wanted to anticipate any sort of actions like that and stop it.

And the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt are paying the price right now for  that violence, what is happening in Syria and in Libya, and for their support for such violence. Arab masses will deny the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood in any Arabic country anymore.

Palestine

‎13th day in a row Zionist entity “Israel” attacking besieged Gaza Strip.‎

“Israel” has tightened its 13-year-old blockade on Gaza Strip, closing the only commercial land crossing between Zionist entity and Gaza to prevent any needed supplies including fuel entering the besieged Strip. That caused the power generators feeding the Gaza Strip with electricity to stop operating, which affected Gaza’s water supplies, stopping the work in the sanitation stations and shutting down many clinics and hospitals, during the ongoing COVID19 pandemic.

Bombardment of Gaza

 GAZA – SaebPress –

Zionist entity’s “Israel” tanks, early Saturday morning Aug. 22, pounded Palestinian sites in the north and south of the besieged Gaza Strip, while the Zionist entity’s navy opened fire at fishermen’s boats in the northern Gaza coast.

The shillings targeted a location east of Khan Younis in the town of Khuzaa, setting it on fire, also three shells were fired at a location east of Rafah city, south of the Gaza Strip, causing significant destruction to the site. no human casualties were reported.

Meanwhile, the navy opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats in the north of the Gaza Strip, damaging some. last week the Zionist entity’s navy closed the fishing area, in a move to deny many thousands of Palestinians the chance of making a living

In a statement published by the Lebanese Al Akhbar newspaper, the Palestinian resistance groups based in the besieged Gaza Strip, announced that they had joined forces to respond instantaneously to Zionist entity’s attacks, on their positions, “according to agreed rules of confrontation.”

The resistance groups stated that they are in agreement to avenge the death of any of their leaders at Zionist entity’s hands, saying that they had prepared a response “against specific targets to be revealed at the proper time.”.

Zionist entity “Israel” has tightened its 13-year-old blockade on Gaza Strip, closing the only commercial land crossing between Zionist entity and Gaza to prevent any needed supplies including fuel entering the besieged Strip. That caused the power generators feeding the Gaza Strip with electricity to stop operating, which affected Gaza’s water supplies, stopping the work in the sanitation stations and shutting down many clinics and hospitals, during the ongoing COVID19 pandemic.  

This was the Zionist entity’s 13th day in a row of strikes against sites in the besieged Gaza Strip. the Zionist entity claimed the collective punishment and the bombardment of the Gaza Strip were in retaliation for the flying of incendiary balloons from Gaza into their fields of their southern colonies, setting them on fire.

UAE stabbed Palestine in back by normalising with Zionist entity ‘Israel’

Abbas :You cannot take our place…Palestine speaks in its own name. She is who will say ‘yes’ or ‘no’

SaebPress

on Tuesday, the Palestinian leadership held a meeting in West bank city of Ramallah, which was also attended by representatives of different Palestinian factions, including Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

Abbas condemned the UAE’s decision to normalise ties with Zionist entity”Israel”, saying it was a “stab in the back of the Palestinian people.”

Abbas accused the UAE of turning its back on Palestinians while trying to justify the deal with Zionist entity “Israel” by arguing it helped stop West bank annexations.

“They added the term annexation and attempted to give the others and the world the illusion that the UAE had come up with a great achievement for us and that is the rejection of annexation, as if the Palestinian issue is only about annexation while they disregard everything else: the rights of the Palestinian people, the Palestinian state, the two-state vision, holy Jerusalem [al-Quds]….This is deception, and this is totally unacceptable. We consider it a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause,” he emphasised.

Abbas also stressed that only the Palestinians have the right to speak on the Palestine issue. 

“You cannot can take our place…Palestine speaks in its own name. She is who will say ‘yes’ or ‘no’. You [are] not responsible for the Palestinian cause, we alone, the Palestinians here, will speak on behalf of the Palestinian cause,” he said.

Palestinians ‘united against conspiracy’

Additionally, Abbas hailed the presence of representative from different Palestinian factions at Tuesday’s meeting as a show of unity.

“I welcome our brothers in Hamas, Jihad, General Command and Al-Saiqa who are here today. This indicates that the Palestinian people are united against the conspiracy, regardless of the differences between us, but in adversity we stand together and have on position against anyone who wants to attack our cause,” he said.

Abbas reminded the Arab countries that based on the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative any normalisation with Zionist entity “Israel” should come after an agreement is reached between the Palestinians and Tel Aviv, and not the other way around.

“Some countries have begun moving, both openly and in secret…this is rejected, and we the Palestinians will continue to absolutely reject this, no matter which country does this. You must respect the decisions on which you have signed off,” he said.

On Tuesday, “Israeli” media cited Sudanese foreign ministry spokesman as announcing an “impending” normalisation agreement with Tel Aviv. Sudan’s acting foreign minister, however, denied knowledge of such talks with Zionist entity “Israel”.

UAE’s normalisation of ties with Zionist entity ‘Israel’ is betrayal of Palestinian cause

Shaath, ”to start with there is no real sovereignty For Mohamed bin Zayed or these ‎Sheikhes over the UAE, its controlled by the Multinational companies, since the British ‎withdrawn from it in 1970, they kept these tribal leaders under tight control of the ‎Multinationals.‎

The Debate discuss with Dr. Saeb Shaath, Author and Middle East Affairs Expert and Dr. Jalal Fairooz, FMR, Bahraini MP and Middle East Expert, the UAE’s normalisation of ties with the Zionist entity ‘Israel’ . The deal has drawn condemnation from different countries as it revealed betrayal of Palestinian cause. ‘Israel’ and the United Arab Emirates agree to normalise diplomatic ties in a deal apparently ‎brokered by US President Donald Trump that includes Tel Aviv regime’s agreement to suspend ‎annexation of the occupied West Bank.‎

Transcription of some of what Dr. Shaath said ‎
Shaath, ”to start with there is no real sovereignty For Mohamed bin Zayed or these ‎Sheikhes over the UAE, its controlled by the Multinational companies, since the British ‎withdrawn from it in 1970, they kept these tribal leaders under tight control of the ‎Multinationals.‎”


‎ Shaath added “At the end of the day, to me, they are still a colony. They have been used by the Americans [Emirates] in ‎the waves of attacks came against Iraq in the [American invasion ] 2003 as well as the American ‎used them, as your guest mentioned they are used by ‘Israel’ to spy on Iran, they have their ‎cooperation under the table, it became very hard to hide it, the official visits ‎of Israeli ministers, officials, sport teams and many other exchanges between the ‎Emirates and ‘Israel’, so they could not hide it any more.‎”


Shaath went to say, “the other crucial point During the 2014 Zionist criminal war on Gaza, the ‎UAE sent a team of 50 doctors from the UAE red cross. The Palestinian ‎resistance stated then that these 50 doctors are Zionists spies collecting ‎information on the Palestinian resistance positions, while they supposed to ‎be an assistant from UAE. Then they were deported out of the Gaza Strip at ‎that time.‎”
Shaath “Recently The United Emirates exchanging a lot of trade and were doing a lot of ‎security deals and wheeling with the Zionist entity sending its aeroplanes to ‎Bin Gorian Airport, that under the cover and camouflaging it as they were ‎providing medical support to the Palestinians to overcome the Corona ‎pandemic,”.

Shaath continued to say that ” while the Palestinians’ refused to receive that aid and told them ‎[UAE] that they are betraying us, when we told you we refuse to receive anything ‎that coming through the Zionist entity airports , this is a normalising of ‎relationship between the Emirates and the Zionist entity. Still, , they ‎continued to send their aeroplanes, all of that is to cover up what type of loads ‎that the Emirates is bring back to Abu Dhabi from Tel Aviv .‎
