Arab Dictatorships Collapsing? Al-Sisi, Bin Salman lashing out…and losing legitimacy

On Monday the Saudi government issued then later retracted this tweet threatening Canada with a 9/11 style attack

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

The two worst terrorist-supporting dictatorships in the Arab world—the al-Sisi regime in Egypt and the Bin Salman regime in Riyad—have simultaneously shot themselves in the foot. Within a few days, both regimes madly lashed out at human rights activists, revealing the psychological instability of the two dictators and the tenuousness of their hold on power, while further undermining their own legitimacy.

On Monday the Saudis, led by the unstable egomaniac Bin Salman, committed one of the most outrageous public relations blunders in history by tweeting a threat to launch a 9/11 style attack against Canada. What did Canada do to deserve such a fate? It had “expressed concern” about Saudi abuse of human rights activists including Samar Badawi, who was recently arrested for—among other crimes—helping Saudi women get the right to drive.

And you thought Donald Trump was thin-skinned and oversensitive to criticism! Compared to Bin Salman, Trump appears a paragon of mental health. (Maybe that’s because Trump’s drug habit is  junk food and caffeinated soft drinks…while Bin Salman, according to well-placed sources, is addicted to designer amphetamines.)

Meanwhile, in Israeli-occupied Egypt, military dictator al-Sisi’s increasingly shaky regime has kidnapped two brothers of human rights activist Ghada Naguib, wife of television host Hesham Abdalla. This Sunday night around 9 pm, 27-year-old Yusuf Mohamed Naguib, who has two young children, was abducted from his home at gunpoint by unidentified men with machine guns. Then on Monday at 2 a.m. the same thing happened to 17-year-old Islam Mohamed Naguib.

Ghada Naguib’s two brothers have been charged with unspecified “crimes” that translate from the Arabic bureaucratese as “undermining the regime.” But their real “crime” is being related to Ghada Naguib, whose “crime” is being married to Hesham Abdalla. While Naguib and her husband Abdulla live outside Egypt, beyond the reach of al-Sisi’s goons, Naguib’s two young brothers reside inside the country.

So why is al-Sisi’s regime punishing Hesham Abdalla by arresting and brutalizing his wife’s young brothers? What have they got against Abdalla?

Ghada Naguib says she learned the answer straight from the authorities. They all but admitted to her that the arrests are retaliation for Abdalla’s recent television episode discussing the likelihood that al-Sisi is Jewish, the son of a Moroccan Jewish woman from a powerful Zionist family that now resides in Israel. Abdalla quoted and interviewed me in the broadcast (my English-language contribution begins at 17:17) as an American journalist who has written and spoken about the likelihood that al-Sisi is an Israeli sleeper agent.

Abdalla gets one important fact wrong: He claims I am Jewish. In reality, though my mother does say she suspects her great-grandmother might have been Jewish, I am of Irish-Welsh-Scottish-German (mostly Christian) ancestry, grew up as a lapsed Unitarian, and converted to Islam in 1993.

For more information on  Ghada Naguib’s viewpoint on the arrests of her brothers, see this entry on her Facebook page. Also check out Al-Jazeera’s coverage of the affair, which is helping propel the story into the Arab media limelight:

Why would the al-Sisi regime, like the Bin Salman regime, overreact in such an extreme way? Why did they respond to Abdalla’s broadcast by arresting two innocent men who did nothing beyond being related to the wife of the broadcaster?

Al-Sisi is apparently hypersensitive about his Jewish origins and Zionist connections. And no wonder. The vast majority of the Egyptian people, unlike a certain treasonous segment of the country’s elite, are not eager to live under perpetual Zionist occupation by the region’s worst domestic human rights abuser. Even mainstream Egyptian political figures like ex-diplomat Masoum Marzouk are now calling for a referendum on al-Sisi’s rule—a proposal that, if it materializes, will likely bring the regime down. And if al-Sisi rejects the referendum proposal, the same forces that produced the stillborn 2011 Egyptian revolution have vowed to return to Tahrir Square and finish the job.

Al-Sisi’s Egypt, like Bin Salman’s “Saudi” Arabia, are morally and fiscally bankrupt—and Zionist occupied, as they all but admitted by posing as supervillains grasping an NWO globe with Kosher Nostra front man Trump.

Will the two bloodiest Zionist-occupied Arab regimes finally collapse? The real question is not if, but when.


UPDATE 11 August from Ghada Naguib

A message for humanity and to Whom it may concern
My name is Ghada Naguib, an Egyptian rights activist, my husband and I , Hesha m Abdallah, an Egyptian movie star, had to leave Egypt in December 2015 after many threats by the Egyptian Security forces because of our peaceful  opposition  to General Sisi as a result of his rough repression and Violations of Egyptians human rights.
Because of our opposition to the Egyptian military regime, Imaginary issues were fabricated.
After three years of our stay in Turkey, They were not satisfied with what they did with me, They arrested my brothers who live in Cairo and hide them forcibly
The first is : Islam Muhammad Naguib 17 years old who was forcibly disappeared for 3 days. The second is : Youssif Muhammad Naguib 27 years old who was also forcibly disappeared but for 6 days.
They were arrested on 29th July from their houses and were investigated days after being detained by Supreme State Security Prosecution that decided to imprison them for 15 days for the case 441 that belongs to journalists and rights activitiests
The Egyptian Security forces were not ashamed when they told my family during the detentions of my younger brother, Islam, that my husband snd are the cause that they arrested my brother for.
My brothers don’t have any political or human rights acitivities or any media relation. All their charges because of me, their sister and her husband are political and human rights activists.
This is not the first crime of the Egyptian regime, but they committed many crimes and masscares to the Egyptian people in General and to the opposition in particular especially since 2013.
Unfortunately, the support of the international community of Genneral Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is what made him savage in this criminal form.
We are ruled by a gang that is closer to terrorists. They do not hesitate to murder the unarmed,  kidnap children from their parents and arrest the relatives of opponents as it happened with me.
My brothers are hostages in the Egyptian regime.  Only terrorists understood those who kidnapped children from their parents as the Egyptian  security guards do to threaten their loved ones. I am asking everyone who can help me out to save my brothers from the hands of those terrorists. Help us to save thousands of innocent detainees who unjustly deatained in Sisi prisons.
