More Proof Egypt Revolution was a CIA op.

More Proof Egypt Revolution was a CIA op.

Tony Cartalucci
Feburary 20, 2011

First noted by geopolitical analyst and historian Dr. Webster Tarpley, some suspicious similarities could be seen between the Egyptian unrest and another, known US-backed uprising in Serbia. Serbia’s Otpor, or the “resistance,” was funded to the tune of millions by the US National Endowment for Democracy. Its signature clenched fist logo adorned flags, signboards, and t-shirts carried by the US State Department-laid astro-turf until the ousting of Slobodan Milošević in 2000.

The exact same logo would turn up 11 years later across the Mediterranean Sea in the streets of Cairo, illustrating further the preposterous, foreign-backed nature of the Egyptian uprisings. Could it just be just a coincidence and Dr. Tarpley’s take mere speculative conjecture? Not even close.

After its success, Serbia’s Otpor would continue receiving funds from the West and become a “CIA-coup college” of sorts, under the name CANVAS, or “Center for Applied Non-Violent Action and Strategies.” It appears that after the Egyptian April 6 Youth Movement finished attending the US State Department funded confab in New York City in 2008, it would make a trip to visit CANVAS in 2009. From there, it took CANVAS’s “curriculum” and apparently their logo, and began assembling a US-funded mob in Egypt.

Amongst CANVAS’s current “partners” are the Albert Einstein Institution, Freedom House, and the International Republican Institute (IRI). The IRI includes amongst its board of directors John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Brent Scowcroft. When John McCain says “We should have seen this coming,” in regards to the unrest in Egypt, he obviously isn’t talking about himself since he helped make it happen.

See with your own eyes, the absolutely shameless hoax foisted upon you, the general public, by your corporate owned mainstream media, the US State Department, and all the disingenuous leaders who have feigned ignorance and surprise over the premeditated and meticulously planned unrest still unfolding throughout the Middle East today, and NEVER believe a word they say again.

A final note to consider is that CANVAS is on record in Foreign Policy magazine’s article “Revolution U,” assisting the “Rose Revolution” of Georgia, the “Orange Revolution” of the Ukraine, and is currently working with networks from Belarus, Myanmar (Burma) and 50 other countries. Taking a look at their activities and the overall globalist agenda, it is clear they are involved in regime change that will directly assist the globalists in their encirclement of Russia and China.

John McCain went on to say of the unrest his IRI had helped fund in Egypt, “I would be a little less cocky in the Kremlin with my KGB cronies today if I were Vladimir Putin. I would be a little less secure in the seaside resort [of] President Hu and a few men who govern and decide the fate of 1.3 billion people.”

McCain’s careless comments, begotten of either senility or the utter contempt he holds the general public in, let slip the true nature of the game being played out via US-fueled color revolutions unfolding around the world. Indeed, this is about exacting concessions and forcing the integration of sovereign nations into the Anglo-American, unipolar world empire.

Oil Will Hit $200 After Dollar Collapse in 2012

Lindsey Williams: Oil Will Hit $200 After Dollar Collapse in 2012

NoWorldSystem.com
February 23, 2011

Pastor Lindsey Williams shares more top insider information of what the ruling-class elite have in store for America and the rest of the world. In October 2009, Lindsey Williams predicted that by the end of 2012 the U.S. dollar would collapse, he’s now saying that when it does collapse the chaos in the Middle East will skyrocket and will cause even more hatred for the United States. We would no longer be able to buy cheap oil from the Middle East, which will in turn spur a great oil-drilling rush here in the U.S. By the time that happens Americans will be paying $7-$8 for a gallon of gasoline and oil will be around $200 a barrel of oil. When we start paying that much we will begin to see a New World Currency.

Here are some excerpts from the 2/2/2011 interview on the Alex Jones Show:

“Once they get that crude oil to the price of somewhere around $200 a barrel they would have created so much chaos in the middle east.”

“They are going to double-cross the Arabs, the Arabs will lose what they’ve put in on our T-bills, when the dollar plummets all these T-bills, securities, Federal Reserve notes that the oil producing countries agreed to buy from us will become worthless.

Mr. Kissinger went abroad in 1977-81 during the Carter administration and cut a deal with every producing major oil country in the Middle East, and the deal was ‘we will buy your oil, we will no longer produce from America’s largest oil fields, we will buy from you IF you do the following: you must take a certain portion of what we buy oil from you with and buy our Federal Reserve issues of T-bills and securities. This in turn will pay for the interest on the national debt.’ Well when the dollar dies in 2012 the billions and billions of dollars worth of T-bills and federal reserve issues that had been sold to them will be worthless.”

This means that we will not be getting Arab oil anymore because they will be enraged with us, on top of that, the Muslim Brotherhood is destabilizing nation after nation in the Middle East as they did in Egypt, as it’s doing in Libya, from one nation to the other, Jordan, Tunisia, Turkey, Kuwait, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and when it hits Saudi Arabia you will have gasoline at the gas pumps $67 per gallon.”

“the elite know all of this in advance […] just about 3 to 4 months ago I said on the Alex Jones Show that there was going to be a crisis in the Middle East, they did not tell me it would be Egypt.”

“The standard currency of the world is crude oil, it’s the most important object out there. The Muslim Brotherhood are being supported by the elite of the world who have crude oil in the palm of their hands. What you saw happen Egypt, Libya, United Arab Emirates is going to spread throughout the entire Arab world. The elite of the world plan to double-cross the Middle East and OPEC nations.”

“The Muslim Brotherhood who is supported today by the elite of the world continue to cause conflict in the Middle East as they have in Egypt and in Libya and it will spread from one country to the other, none of them will be exempt.”

“I was told at the point the U.S. is not able to get our crude oil from the Middle East or for that matter any OPEC countries, the elite plan to open up America’s own oil fields that they have been sitting on for 50 years.”

“There is going to be a mad rush for oil production in America because we would not able to get it abroad, when the Arabs are double-crossed you will see America begin to produce from its own oil fields but what’s going to happen at that time you will be paying $7-$8 a gallon for gasoline and it will be $200 a barrel, our dollar would have already collapsed and they will bring in a world currency. In the end it’s all about bringing in a New World Order in order to accomplish what they want.”

“China has agreed with Russia to buy all of the crude oil and all the natural gas that they want. China will not be affected by the Middle East crisis because they are now getting their oil from Russia, U.S. will not be able to get it because they are supplying so much to China and as a result we will have to turn to our own oil fields here in America.”

“There will no no shortages on grocery store shelves, the grocery shelves will be full but you’re going to go hungry. Why are you going to go hungry? Not because there is a lack of groceries out there but because the prices are going to be too expensive.” “If you want groceries you better go to the grocery store and buy a 6 months to a year supply right now because the collapse of the dollar is going to accelerate.”

U.S. maintains ownership of Egypt’s military

February 18, 2011

The mass movements which forced the removal of Mubarak reveal both the strength and weaknesses of spontaneous uprisings. On the one hand, the social movements demonstrated their capacity to mobilize hundreds of thousands, if not millions, in a successful sustained struggle culminating in the overthrow of the dictator in a way that pre-existent opposition parties and personalities were unable or unwilling to do.

On the other hand, lacking any national political leadership, the movements were not able to take political power and realize their demands, allowing the Mubarak military high command to seize power and define the “post-Mubarak” process, ensuring the continuation of Egypt’s subordination to the US, the protection of the illicit wealth of the Mubarak clan ($70 billion), and the military elite’s numerous corporations and the protection of the upper class. The millions mobilized by the social movements to overthrow the dictatorship were effectively excluded by the new self-styled “revolutionary” military junta in defining the political institutions and policies, let along the socio-economic reforms needed to address their basic needs of the population (40% live on less than $2 USD a day, youth unemployment runs over 30%). Egypt, as in the case of the student and popular social movements against the dictatorships of South Korea, Taiwan, Philippines and Indonesia, demonstrate that the lack of a national political organization allows neo-liberal and conservative “opposition” personalities and parties to replace the regime .They proceed to set up an electoral regime which continues to serve imperial interests and to depend on and defend the existing state apparatus .In some cases they replace old crony capitalists with new ones. It is no accident that the mass media praise the ‘spontaneous’ nature of the struggles (not the socio-economic demands) and put a favorable spin on the role of military (slighting its 30 years as a bulwark of the dictatorship). The masses are praised for their “heroism”, the youth for their “idealism”, but are never proposed as central political actors in the new regime. Once the dictatorship fell, the military and the opposition electoralists “celebrated” the success of the revolution and moved swiftly to demobilize and dismantle the spontaneous movement, in order to make way for negotiations between the liberal electoral politicians, Washington and the ruling military elite.

While the White House may tolerate or even promote social movements in ousting (“sacrificing”) dictatorships, they have every intention in preserving the state .In the case of Egypt the main strategic ally of US imperialism was not Mubarak, it is the military, with whom Washington was in constant collaboration before, during and after the ouster of Mubarak, ensuring that the “transition” to democracy (sic) guarantees the continued subordination of Egypt to US and Israeli Middle East policy and interests.

Egypt Revolution orchestrated by US?

Barry Chamish
Future Fastforward
February 17, 2011

[FF Editorial: This and the other articles are posted to the website to give readers another perspective of the events in Egypt. Whether, the Egyptian revolution is in fact a US orchestrated operations or a genuine revolution, the acid test will be whether the Rafah Crossing will be opened to lift the criminal blockade imposed by the Mubarak regime at the behest of the US and Israel. Only time will tell.]

Elad Pressman, editor of a major Israeli political website, was my guest on my radio show and did he have news! The Daily Telegraph had dug into Wikileaks documents and pieced together a report that convincingly proves the US was behind the violent Egyptian protests.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk…

The American Embassy in Cairo helped a young dissident attend a US-sponsored summit for activists in New York, while working to keep his identity secret from Egyptian state police. On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told US diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011. He has already been arrested by Egyptian security in connection with the demonstrations and his identity is being protected by The Daily Telegraph.

The disclosures, contained in previously secret US diplomatic dispatches released by the WikiLeaks website, show American officials pressed the Egyptian government to release other dissidents who had been detained by the police.

At least five people were killed in Cairo alone yesterday and 870 injured, several with bullet wounds. Mohamed ElBaradei, the pro-reform leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner, was placed under house arrest after returning to Egypt to join the dissidents. Riots also took place in Suez, Alexandria and other major cities across the country.

The US government has previously been a supporter of Mr Mubarak’s regime. But the leaked documents show the extent to which America was offering support to pro-democracy activists in Egypt while publicly praising Mr Mubarak as an important ally in the Middle East. In a secret diplomatic dispatch, sent on December 30 2008, Margaret Scobey, the US Ambassador to Cairo, recorded that opposition groups had allegedly drawn up secret plans for regime change to take place before elections, scheduled for September this year.

The memo, which Ambassador Scobey sent to the US Secretary of State in Washington DC, was marked “confidential” and headed: ‘April 6 activist on his US visit and regime change in Egypt’.

It said the activist claimed “several opposition forces” had “agreed to support an unwritten plan for a transition to a parliamentary democracy, involving a weakened presidency and an empowered prime minister and parliament, before the scheduled 2011 presidential elections”. The embassy’s source said the plan was so sensitive it cannot be written down.

Ambassador Scobey questioned whether such an “unrealistic” plot could work, or ever even existed. However, the documents showed that the activist had been approached by US diplomats and received extensive support for his pro-democracy campaign from officials in Washington. The embassy helped the campaigner attend a “summit” for youth activists in New York, which was organized by the US State Department.

Cairo embassy officials warned Washington that the activist’s identity must be kept secret because he could face “retribution” when he returned to Egypt. He had already allegedly been tortured for three days by Egyptian state security after he was arrested for taking part in a protest some years earlier. The protests in Egypt are being driven by the April 6 youth movement, a group on Facebook that has attracted mainly young and educated members opposed to Mr Mubarak. The group has about 70,000 members and uses social networking sites to orchestrate protests and report on their activities. The documents released by WikiLeaks reveal US Embassy officials were in regular contact with the activist throughout 2008 and 2009, considering him one of their most reliable sources for information about human rights abuses.

Elad strongly suggested that I investigate who was behind Mohammed ElBaradei. Look what I discovered! Just a few months ago, Mohammed ElBaradei was paraded on the front cover of the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) rag, Foreign Affairs, with a headline asking if he could be Egypt’s savior.

What uncanny foresight, for on the second day of Egyptian protests he showed up in Cairo and was named as the negotiator of The Muslim Brotherhood. So where did he come from? It turns out from the board of an NGO run by CFR muckrakers George Soros and Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Against the regime, the opposition groups – of which there are at least ten – are just as hamstrung by their failure to produce a leader able to stand up and challenge the president. For lack of any representative figure, they picked the retired nuclear watchdog director Dr. Mohamed ElBaradi to speak for them in negotiations over the transfer of power. Hardly anyone in Egypt knows him: He is better known outside the country having spent many years abroad. Yet, at the same time, ElBaradei sits on the board of a Soros/Brzezinski foundation. Go to the George Soros/Zbigniew Brzezinski Crisis Groups Website and you will see that the Egyptian clashes have hit surprisingly close to home for them. That’s because none other than their own Mohamed ElBaradei, sitting on their board of trustees, is the self-proclaimed leader of the unrest unfolding across the streets of Cairo. The International Crisis Group’s recent condemnation of ElBaradei’s detention and admission of his membership amongst “the Group” is accompanied by calls for the government to stop using violence against the protesters.

http://www.crisisgroup.org/en/about/board.aspx

A few board members: George Soros Chairman, Open Society Institute Mohamed ElBaradei Director-General Emeritus, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA); Nobel Peace Prize (2005) Javier Solana Former EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy, NATO Secretary-General and Foreign Affairs Minister of Spain And then, we have The Muslim Brotherhood meeting with Obama. From the Egyptian press: ‘Obama met Muslim Brotherhood members in U.S.’; U.S. President Barack Obama met with members of Egypt’s Islamist opposition movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, earlier this year, according to a report in Thursday editions of the Egyptian daily newspaper Almasry Alyoum. The newspaper reported that Obama met the group’s members, who reside in the U.S. and Europe, in Washington two months ago.

As for Israel, which should be terrified of a potential Muslim Brotherhood government, who else is pushing for one but President Shimon “Mad Dog” Peres? Mubarak appointed Peres’ buddy Omar Suleiman (search for pics of the two all over the internet) as his Vice-President, meaning upcoming interim President when Hosni climbs down from the post. And look who Peres got to say what Peres can’t, his rabbi and Vatican representative, David “Mad Man” Rosen:

http://euobserver.com/9/31729/?rk=1

Rabbi David Rosen, a prominent commentator on religious affairs, has said that EU diplomats should start talking to Islamic faith leaders in Egypt in order to keep the revolution on a peaceful path.

Yes, Israel’s President thinks it would be terrific to begin negotiations with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Israel’s issues are the same as Egypt’s but are hidden behind a charade of democracy. This year’s figures reveal that 25% of all Israelis, including over 850,000 children, live beneath the poverty line. The middle class has all but disappeared at 15%, leaving a vast number of poor and unemployed to be ruled by a tiny group of immensely wealthy oligarchs.

If you thought Cairo had a big turnout for its protests, Israel with 1/5 of Cairo’s population, drew over 200,000 to protest the “Oslo “peace” and the evacuation of Gaza’s Jews…to no avail. The government had flipped the organizers with names like Wallerstein and Leiberman and the protests were harmless steam blowing.

It’s time Israel joined the Middle East. Get those 200,000 back, led by homeless Gazan Jews and joined by all who live in daily fear of the Shabak (Secret Service), the police, the courts and get them to the President’s House to physically oust Shimon Peres from his office.

After that, on to the Knesset!

Egypt Revolution Staged for U.S. Coup on Iran

Egypt Revolution Staged for U.S. Coup on Iran

NoWorldSystem.com
February 11, 2011

It’s becoming more evident that the Revolution in Egypt was a linchpin for another U.S. coup against Iran.

Once again we see the U.S. meddling in the affairs of governments; in a released Wikileaks cable reveals the State Department is backing revolutions in Egypt.

The Wikileaks cable also reveals “how the State Department helped an Egyptian pro-democracy activist attend a “Youth Movements Summit’ in New York and how the unnamed activist presented an ‘unwritten plan’ for democratic transition in 2011.’”

Wikileaks cables also indicated that the U.S. applied pressure to have three dissidents associated with the pro-democracy group to be released from prison.

The Egyptian revolution is a joke, Mubarak will just be replaced by the CIA’s torture chief Omar Suleiman, no change there. This so-called revolution was only the first stage, the second stage is orchestrating another coup in Iran including the rest of the Islamic world.

For decades the CIA has been propping up fake “color revolutions” and terrorism to replace governments with their own un-elected puppets. In 2009, during the ‘green revolution’ in Iran the CIA was caught backing the Mujahideen Khaliq Organization, terrorists who were trained in Iraq to create post-election mayhem in Iran. The captured terrorists admitted that they were given direct orders by the MKO command-post in Britain.

In 2008, Former Pakistan General Mirza Aslam Beig reported that the U.S. was providing training facilities to the Jundullah terrorist organization in eastern areas of Iran to create unrest and to effect the ties between Iran and Pakistan.

With all the hype of the new ‘Egyptian revolution’ the propaganda against Iran is increasing:

“The world is changing,”

“You have a young, vibrant generation within the Middle East that is looking for greater opportunity. …. My hope and expectation is that we are going to continue to see the people of Iran have the courage to be able to express their yearning for greater freedom and a more representative government,” Obama said.

The U.S. leaders and the media have positioned themselves as being on the side of the Egyptian protesters, we need to ask ourselves “why is the U.S. government supporting a revolution against their own puppet dictator Mubarak, the same guy who received billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars?” The answer is simple, create a new ‘color revolution’ without replacing the Egyptian dictatorship to stimulate Anglo-American New World Order in the Middle East.

Here’s more proof the U.S. meddling in Iran, trying to start up another ‘green revolution’ in Iran:

    US sends Twitter messages to Iranians

    “On the Twitter account, USAdarFarsi, the State Department said it “recognizes historic role of social media among Iranians We want to join in your conversations.

    In another Tweet, the State Department said: “Iran has shown that the activities it praised Egyptians for it sees as illegal, illegitimate for its own people.”

    In a third Tweet, it said “US calls on Iran to allow people to enjoy same universal rights to peacefully assemble, demonstrate as in Cairo.”

Since 1941 U.S. and Britain have been trying to exploit Iran but have always failed to prop up a U.S.-backed dictator in the country.

In 1941 U.S. and Britain installed the Shah of Iran, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi. It didn’t take long for the Iranian people to realize that the Shah was nothing more than a puppet of the U.S. and British empire and started a revolution. People protested and rioted, but the Shah ordered Martial Law and arrested political leaders and clerics who opposed his regime. In 1951 Mossadeq lead the people of Iran for a few years, but the CIA and British Intelligence (MI6) decided to launch Operation AJAX, which was a plan to create terrorist attacks to blame it on Mossadeq.

Operation AJAX was later revealed in the late 1990′s when the CIA declassified large sections of Operation AJAX to the American public.:

    “TPAJAX. The plan comprised propaganda, provocations, demonstrations, and bribery, and employed agents of influence, “false flag” operatives, dissident military leaders, and paid protesters.”

With the help of the CIA and the MI6, Mossadeq was removed and the Shah returned to rule for the next 25 years. During that time the American/British oil companies took over half of Iran’s oil production. The Shah started to order deaths on demonstrators, torture and execution was used on all who opposed his regime. Protesters were met by Iranian secret police called the SAVAK, who were just as brutal as the secret police of Nazi Germany.

After many years under Shah oppression, the people of Iran were successful in overthrowing the U.S.-Backed Shah of Iran. That is when the Mullah Regime took over, creating the Islamic Republic which is currently Ahmadinejad and Ayatollah Khomeini.

No matter which way it goes for Iran, the people are nothing but pawns for the Anglo or Islamic dictatorship. Time will decide what will happen, but either way it’s going to be a bloodbath.

Torture Victim of Omar Suleiman Speaks Out

Torture Victim of Omar Suleiman Speaks Out

Antony Loewenstein
Desertpeace
February 12, 2011

Australian citizen Mamdouh Habib was captured and tortured in the years after September 11 in both Egypt and Guantanamo Bay.

For years, “war on terror” supporters defamed Habib and claimed he was lying about his allegations of mistreatment. However last year in just one case against the Australian Murdoch press, he won a small victory:

    The courts have delivered another win to former Guantanamo Bay inmate Mamdouh Habib, declaring that he was defamed by News Ltd columnist Piers Akerman, paving the way for a hefty payout.

    The New South Wales Court of Appeal overturned a 2008 judgment in favour of Mr Akerman’s publisher Nationwide News and yesterday ordered them to pay Mr Habib’s legal costs in the five-year-old battle.

    It was the second win for Mr Habib in a month after the full court of the Federal Court upheld an appeal in his mammoth compensation case against the federal government for allegedly aiding and abetting his torture by foreign agents.

    Another hearing will now be held to determine what damages he will receive for the 2005 article in The Daily Telegraph and other News Ltd newspapers, headlined ”Mr Habib, it’s time to tell the full story”.

Today, with the Egyptian uprisings in full swing, the man tapped by the US, Israel and the West to lead the country, Omar Suleiman, was one of Habib’s torturers and there is intense scrutiny of who this man truly is.

I interviewed Habib exclusively tonight in Sydney about Suleiman, his calls for the torturer-in-chief to be charged, his knowledge about all the figures complicit in his rendition and his support for the Egyptian protests. He stressed that Suleiman was a CIA/Mossad agent who was willing to do anything for a price:

I reviewed Habib’s book, My Story, in 2008 for the Sydney Morning Herald and it tells a powerful story. The extracts below are all the references to Suleiman:

    pp.112-115

    The guard quickly told me that the very big boss was coming to talk to me, and that I must be well behaved and co-operate. Everyone was nervous. I have since found out that the boss was Omar Suleiman, head of all Egyptian security. He was known for personally supervising the interrogation of al-Qaeda suspects and sending reports to the CIA. In the beginning, he was often present during my interrogations. He must have thought that he had a big fish when I was sent to him by the Americans and Australians.

    I was sitting in a chair, hooded, with my hands handcuffed behind my back. He came up to me. His voice was deep and rough. He spoke to me in Egyptian and English. He said, “Listen, you don’t know who I am, but I am the one who has your life in his hands. Every single person in this building has his life in my hands. I just make the decision.”

    I said, “I hope your decision is that you make me die straight away.”

    “No, I don’t want you to die now. I want you to die slowly.” He went on, “I can’t stay with you; my time is too valuable to stay here. You only have me to save you. I’m your saviour. You have to tell me everything, if you want to be saved. What do you say?”

    “I have nothing to tell you.”

    “You think I can’t destroy you just like that?” He clapped his hands together.

    “I don’t know”. I was feeling confused. Everything was unreal.

    “If God came down and tried to take you by the hand, I would not let him. You are under my control. Let me show you something that will convince you.”

    The guard then guided me out of the room and through an area where I could see, from below the blindfold, the trunks of palm trees. We then went through another door back inside, and descended some steps. We entered a room. They sat me down.

    “Now you are going to tell me that you planned a terrorist attack”, Suleiman persisted.

    “I haven’t planned any attacks.”

    “I give you my word that you will be a rich man if you tell me you have been planning attacks. Don’t you trust me?” he asked.

    “I don’t trust anyone”, I replied.

    Immediately he slapped me hard across the face and knocked off the blindfold; I clearly saw his face.

    “That’s it. That’s it. I don’t want to see this man again until he co-operates and tells me he’s been planning a terrorist attack! he yelled at the others in the room, then stormed out.

    The guard came up to me, upset that I hadn’t co-operated.

    I said to him, “You have to let me go soon; it’s nearly 48 hours.”

    He looked at me, surprised, and asked, “How long do you think you’ve been here?”

    “A day”, I replied.

    “Man, you’ve been here for more than a week.”

    They then took me to another room, where they tortured me relentlessly, stripping me naked and applying electric shocks everywhere on my body. The next thing I remember was seeing the general again. He came into the room with a man from Turkistan; he was a big man but was stooped over, because his hands were chained to the shackles of his feet, preventing him from standing upright.

    “This guy is no use to us anymore. This is what is going to happen to you. We’ve had him for one hour, and this is what happens.”

    Suddenly, a guy they called Hamish, which means snake, came at the poor man from behind and gave him a terrible karate kick that sent him crashing across the room. A guard went over to shake him, but he didn’t respond. Turning to the general, the guard said, “Basha, I think he’s dead.”

    “Throw him away then. Let the dogs have him.”

    They dragged the dead man out.

    “What do you think of that?” asked the general, staring into my face.

    “At least he can rest now”, I replied.

    Then they brought another man in. This man, I think, was from Europe – his exclamations of pain didn’t sound like those of someone from the Middle East. He was in a terrible state. The guard came in with a machine and started to wire up the guy to it. They told the poor man that they were going to give him a full electric shock, measuring ten on the scale. Before they even turned the machine on, the man started to gasp and then slumped in the chair. I think he died of a heart attack.

    The general said that there was one more person I had to see. “This person will make you see that we can keep you here for as long as we want, all of your life, if we choose.”

    There was a window in the room, covered by a curtain. The general drew back a curtain, and I saw the top half of a very sick, thin man. He was sitting on a chair on the other side of the glass, facing me.

    “You know this guy?” the general asked.

    “No”, I replied.

    “That’s strange – he’s your friend from Australia.”

    I looked again, and was horrified to see that it was Mohammed Abbas, a man I had known in Australia who had worked for Telstra [Australian telecommunications company]. He had travelled to Egypt in 1999, and had never been seen again.

    “He is going to be your neighbour for the rest of your life.”

    It was then that I knew I was in Egypt, without a doubt. They then took Abbas away and closed the curtain.
