COMMENT- What is PM Cameron doing in Egypt?

By Majed Iqbal- British Prime Minister, David Cameron will be the first head of State to visit the ‘New’ Egypt, post Mubarak, the dictator who ruled Egypt for over 30 years with full backing and Support from the West which included commercial, military and intelligence ties .

Today Cameron is congratulating the Egyptian People on the Toppling of ‘their’ good guy, Mubarak. Yes, that makes a lot of sense Mr Cameron!

With his VIP status, Cameron has won the Political ratings of getting in there first! He wanted to meet the ‘New’ regime. Yes the ones that Mubarak appointed before he left. So its business as usual for this British Prime Minster too! Just like the previous ones who even made Egypt their holidaying backyard with Presidential favours added in with the ‘service’

His meetings include Field Marshal Mohammed Hussein Tantawi, Mubarak’s minister of defence, who is the head of the supreme council of the armed forces and Ahmed Shafik – another member of the military council who was appointed as prime minister by Mubarak at the end of January.

He also has plans to speak to the groups who protested but not with Muslim Brotherhood!

But the Drama doesn’t stop there. On this Trip he has been accompanied by 38 Corporate Executives of which 8 were arms contractors. When confronted he said

“We have got very important trading relationships that we want to expand, we have got a very important security relationship – not least in combating extremist terror – that we need to sharpen and increase. My argument is that the process of political reform and economic reform – there is a real opportunity there to make more progress – doesn’t run counter to those other two objectives”

Shamelessly, Western States hide behind rhetorical slogans of Freedom, Free and fair elections, Human rights whilst arming the regimes to their teeth to slaughter their populations who show alternative Political inclinations.

Cameron Said “As old friends of the Egyptian people, we come not to tell you how to do things but to ask how we can help you do what we know you want to do”

Then What exactly are you doing there then if you don’t want to dictate to the Egyptians how they should shape their future??

But the ludicrous nature of these comments doesn’t stop there. On one hand they say you can do anything and then in the same breath utter “but nothing Islamic” please.

“Part of the problem is that people say, either you have the Muslim Brotherhood or the old regime. But actually most of Tahrir Square was taken up with people who want more openness and freedom… My argument is that by opening up societies, opening up participation, you give particularly young men something to believe in other than a more extreme Islamic route” Said Cameron

What a loser! This is Hypocrisy at its best! He didn’t even attempt to disguise his words for his contempt on any aspects of Islam influencing the New Egypt.

“If Egypt is successful, we can demonstrate a huge and positive impact elsewhere in the region”

And thats why Cameron is there. To ensure that the change is one which is compliant with Western Interests in the region. And thats it. Its got nothing to do with the people of Egypt. Allah (swt) says

“And when it is said to them: “Make not mischief on the earth,” they say: “We are only peace-makers.” Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not.” Al-Baqarah 2:11-12


  1. Cameron reminds me of an undertaker at a Wild West town . . . loitering around the saloon bar in case a shooting breaks out and he can start measuring the corpses for the coffins in his parlour!

    Shamelessly and without any respect for the Egyptian people, Cameron lands in Cairo to flog weapons, embrace the military top brass and size up the opposition groups. Most right thinking people would suggest that the appropriate time for such a visit would have been AFTER the country had agreed a new representative government!?

    After mouthing empty platitudes about democracy in Egypt, the Cameron entourage will head to Kuwait to flog more weapons and offer comfort to the (non-democratic) ruling Al Sabah family!?

    What we’re witnessing with Cameron’s visit to the region is more than just hypocrisy. Its a form of perversion that has played a major role in the chaos and instability that is gripping the Arab and Muslim Street. If the recent events in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and elsewhere are to have any meaning, the region has to turn its back on this type of brazen imperialism and exploitation

  2. It is a new chapter in the same old book. British PM purpose along securing more trade deals was to select a new ruling cabinet to continue to serve the west. Not for second can you think that the west would let a Islamic party rule Egypt. It would not surprise me if British PM was ‘ordered’ by the zionest country of Israel.
