Canada Free Press: “When Gen. Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi was still wearing his uniform as defense minister, most of the Egyptian newspapers were refusing to publish articles that criticized Al-Sisi or pointed out any of his mistakes or errors. Editors said that they supported Al-Sisi completely—especially in view of the current dangerous times and the war on terror, with the Muslim Brotherhood attacks on the army, police, Copts and even moderate Muslims.
A few days ago, the very same newspapers—suddenly—started publishing articles highly critical of g Al-Sisi—right after he replaced his uniform for a civilian suit and formally announced his willingness to run for the presidency.
“We can speak about him as we want now—he took off his uniform!”
Opinion: The curious turn of Egyptian politics. The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood with the overwhelming support of the Obama administration seemed to fit Bible prophecy like a glove.
American F16s, Abrams tanks, and billions in cash looked to be the prelude to Egypt’s rise to its end-time fulfillment of the king of the South of Daniel 11:40.
Mohamed Morsi used American cash to bolster his military wing Hamas, finance his terror wing al Qaeda all the while pretending to support the 30 year Mubarak peace with Israel. It was the perfect deception to which the Obama administration became the useful idiot.
Bible prophecy appeared to be in full swing:
Then along came General Al-Sisi. Wham-o, Batman, Morsi was locked up and Muslim Brotherhood operatives were rounded up and scores are being sentenced to death as we write this.
Bible prophecy appeared to be on hold. Al-Sisi even rounded up terrorists that were causing havoc in the Sinai bringing a fresh sense of relief to Israel.
On February 5, 2013 Knesset member Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor), Israel’s former defense minister, stated on Israeli radio that the Jewish state is supportive of Al-Sisi, but cautioned that Al-Sisi’s current popularity is no guarantee that he would be an effective president.
“If he fails as a president, then the current regime that ousted the Muslim Brotherhood would be dissolved,” Ben-Eliezer said. Such a scenario could once again pave the way for the Muslim Brotherhood to return to power “stronger and more determined than before,” he said, a situation that would ultimately be “bad news for Israel and the West.”
Egypt’s elections are scheduled for May 26-27 and while Al-Sisi appears to be a shoe-in, the people are now divided between loving and hating him, supporting and opposing him.
Louder voices are calling for: another President of Egypt, withdrawal of his candidacy, and support of his rivals. The question as to whether General Al-Sisi represents a rising Pharaoh or just another power-hungry Islamist will become clear in time.
The one thing we know for sure is that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled, in God’s time.
