Obamas Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and European Union envoy Bernardino Leon were scheduled to meet with the Muslim Brotherhoods second in command Khairat el-Shatar today. The Obama administration was set to offer the Muslim Brotherhood three ministers in the Egyptian cabinet.
Press TV reported:
However, El-Shatar refused to meet with the Western officials. Al-Ahram reported:
UAE foreign minister Abdullah bin Zayed, his Qatari counterpart Khalid Al-Attiyah, and US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns were scheduled to visit the Muslim Brotherhoods second-man Khairat El-Shatar in Tora Prison on Sunday night, government sources told Ahram Online.
The trilateral delegation had aimed to present the Islamist leader with an initiative to at break the political deadlock and circle of violence that engulfed the country since the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi.
However, El-Shater, who has been detained on charges of inciting to kill protesters since 6 July, has refused to meet with the US, UAE, and Qatari officials to discuss the deal, Al Jazeera TV reported
Ahram Online has learned that the trios deal calls for the replacement of Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi, who Morsi supporters harshly criticise and accuse of bias, with a premier that is viewed as more independent and objective. However, no specific figure was offered as El-Beblawis potential successor.
The deal also proposes the formation of a new cabinet, which would include three ministers from the Muslim Brotherhood in addition to two Salafist ministers. The incumbent government does not include any Islamist figures, as the Brotherhood and other Islamist forces have refused participation in protest of Morsis ouster.
Furthermore, the deal entails a Brotherhood-orchestrated dispersal of the pro-Morsi sit-ins held in Cairo. Tens of thousands of Morsi loyalists are maintaining three sit-ins; one near Nasr Citys Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque, a second in Gizas Nahda Square, and a third in Heliopolis Alf Maskan area.
The Egyptian people are very upset with the Obama Administration for supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.
What happens when the Egyptians and Al Sisi tell Mr. President: “NO”!?
hmmmm..... I think the key sentence is : Press TV reported
He’s not a Muslim or a Christian. He’s a fake Christian, a Muslim sympathizer, and probably an agnostic or atheist in actuality.
How can obamma offer the MB three ministerial position in the Egyptian government?
Blind pig, broken clock, etc...
Glad to here that Obama has accepted the the Presidency of Egypt. He is a near perfect fit. How soon will he be resigning his current post and moving to Cairo? And, even more importantly, will he be taking Michelle with him (fingers crossed).
They'll just get mowed down with the Tanks, Apaches and F-16's he gave the new boss.
Obama will not rest until Isreal is under attack from all sides.
Don’t think so. It’s a mouthpiece for the Iranian regime.
If your father’s a Muslim, you’re a Muslim. He had at LEAST two Muslim fathers. Barack Obama, Senior or Malcolm X, depending on which story you believe and Lolo Soetoro, his Indonesian step-father. It don’t get much more Muslim than that.
I will do some Egyptian recess appointments, because, we can’t wait
Dear Lord, I pray they tell him to go pound sand!
Dear Lord, please. Share Your strength with all of the freedom loving people of the world, and through them, Your will be done.
Donald Duck on a pogo stick. Look at my profile page. Don’t you think I know what Press TV is? Does that mean that EVERYTHING they report is a falsehood? Ever stop to think that they have insiders in Egypt, being who they are? ABC, AP, CBS, NBC, PBS and all those are a “mouthpiece” for the BHO regime, yet they sometimes report the news.
We have a Commander in Chief who says, I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.(From Audacity of Hope)
so he’s going to become Presidente of Egypt, eh?
I give up. When did the US start negotiating with terrorists about government sharing in a country where we have no business interfering?
uhhh....exactly WHERE do we get off offering ANYBODY posts in some other country’s government?
(and they say Bush was a Cowboy Imperialist!!!)
