While America is still discussing Benghazi’s 9/11 terrorist attack and questioning whether Ambassador Chris Stevens and the four America heroes were killed by U.S. supplied arms to Libyan jihadists or not; it happens yet again! The founding fathers of al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) militants introduces the second act of the familiar horror in Cairo. But unlike Ambassador Stevens, Ambassador Najm lived against the dismay of the MB to speak the truth after he survived the horror.
The MB militia which is currently supported, funded and armed by the current U.S. administration, abducted the former Egyptian Ambassador to Venezuela Mr. Yehyia Najm, while he was peacefully protesting against Mohammed Morsi’s constitution and the Muslim Brotherhood’s rule last Wednesday. Mr. Najm who was exiled in Venezuela under Mubarak’s regime from 2005 to 2011 because of his opposition to Mubarak’s dictatorship, came back to a worse version of the same.
These are videos of Mr. Najm’s testimony in Arabic, and this is my translation of parts of his testimony from the time he went to the protest on Tuesday, to his abduction, torture, and imprisonment until he was finally released yesterday. The first video taken shortly after he was arrested and the second is his interview on Haya TV yesterday:
Today hundreds of American-Egyptians from all religions and ethnicities marched from the White House to the Egyptian embassy in protest against Mohammed Morsi’s tyrannical theocratic dictatorial constitution, and President Obama’s administration support, funding, and now according to the Washington Times, arming Islamists with “more battle tanks and jet fighters” from the United States, which will be used by the Muslim Brotherhood religious and autocratic tyranny to subvert millions of protestors representing the vast majority of Egyptians.
The protest was organized by The Egyptian Front for National Salvation and Coptic Solidarity to condemn the power grab and other illegitimate measures taken by Mohammad Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood organization in Egypt.
The protest in DC had the same objectives as the protests in Egypt which are:
1. Annulment of the constitutional declaration of November 22nd
2. Cancellation of the referendum scheduled for December 15th, and discarding the subject Constitution Draft.
3. Disbanding the Constituent Assembly and forming a new one which truly represents all segments of the Egyptian society.
4. Strongly demanding a constitution in total accord with all international agreements and conventions which guarantees women rights, human rights and religious freedom to all citizens equally.
El-Masry Al-Youm reported today: El-Mahala Al-Kubra City Council has announced its separation and independence From Egypt’s Illegitimate Regime:
Hundreds of protestors have taken over El-Mahala’s city council and hanged the sign of the “National Rescue Council,” a non-governmental organization against the Muslim Brotherhood’s regime. The organization’s representative, Mahmoud EL-Samouli, and a member of Egypt’s Youth Revolutionary Coalition announced gave a speech in front of the city council announcing the illegitimacy of Mohammed Morsi’s regime and the independence of the govornorate from the current regime, and the establishment of an intermedium committee to conduct the city’s affairs, formed of local political parties, and politicians.
The current dissent is against Morsi’s tyrannical decree and the current constitutional draft, the announcement was followed by the chants of protestors:
“We don’t want it an Islamic state, we want it a civil state.”
”No to the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafists, Egypt belongs to all Egyptians.”
Earlier this year, most analysts in Egypt assessed Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi to be the key figure in that country’s politics and President Mohamed Morsi to be a lightweight. Mr. Morsi fired Field Marshal Tantawi on Aug. 12. This matters because Field Marshal Tantawi would have kept the country out of Islamist hands, while Mr. Morsi is speedily moving the country in the direction of applying Islamic law. If Mr. Morsi succeeds at this, the result will have major negative implications for America’s standing in the region.
How did this happen?

Sometime after Mr. Morsi became president on June 30, Field Marshal Tantawi openly signaled his intent to overthrow him via a mass demonstration to take place on Aug. 24. His mouthpiece, Tawfik Okasha, openly encouraged a military coup against Mr. Morsi. But Mr. Morsi acted first and took several steps on Aug. 12: He annulled the constitutional declaration limiting his power, dismissed Field Marshal Tantawi and replaced him with Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, head of military intelligence.]
Activists are now working to shine light on what they call Sharia’s war on women.
A vast coalition met in Washington, D.C., Thursday, to warn women of the threat Islamic law would pose to their rights if enacted in the U.S.
“Sharia takes an entirely different approach to their rights than would the American Constitution or the Declaration of Independence,” explained Karen Lugo, assistant director of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence (http://www.claremont.org/projects/projectid.31/project_detail.asp).
The group’s national public education campaign includes women who’ve been affected by harsh Sharia law.
Cynthia Farahat fled Egypt to avoid facing military prison for her human rights work against Islam.
“I’m almost here in America on exile for standing up for basic human rights and basic values under Sharia law,” she said. “I lived under Sharia law all my life. I just came to America six months ago.”
EAST HAMPTON, NY — “Islam is a political doctrine, not a religion, and America needs to speak out to make sure that Cairo does not turn into another Tehran.” (Correction: I stated that when Islamic Shariah law is the system of governance which is a theocracy, Islam no longer represent itself as a religion but a political doctrine. And America needs to be on the right side of the equation before Cairo turns into Tehran.)
That is the warning recently delivered by Egyptian-born Cynthia Farahat, 31, the advocacy director at Coptic Solidarity, co-founder of the Liberal Egyptian Party (which merged with the Egyptian Democratic Party to form the Egyptian Social Democratic Party in March 2011), and senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy.
Speaking on the state of Coptic Christians and other Egyptian minorities to an overflow audience of Christians and Jews at the Jewish Center of the Hamptons in East Hampton, NY, Farahat said that since Colonel Gamal Abdel Nasser came to power in 1952, Christians, like Jews, have been considered “enemies of the state.”
Moreover, when Egypt ceased to be a secular state in 1971, non-Muslims were no longer considered full citizens under Sharia law. With the recent election of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power, “Copts don’t have a chance, and the Brotherhood’s war against us is going to get much worse,” Farahat said.
