Gamal Abdel Nasser was suspicious of American actions as they facilitated the plans of the Power Elite (PE) when in 1957, he said: “The genius of you Americans is that you never make clear cut stupid moves, only complicated stupid moves, which make us wonder at the possibility that there may be something we are missing.” Nasser died in 1970 and was followed as president of Egypt by Anwar Sadat, who initially sought the support of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) but was assassinated by the Islamic Jihad (led by Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, former MB member and now the new leader of al Qaeda) and others on October 6, 1981 after signing a peace treaty with Israel in 1979. Sadat was followed by Hosni Mubarek, who in 2005 began to crack down on the MB after they won 20% of the seats in Parliament.
Mubarek was recently ousted with the support of the MB, and in a January 28, 2011 The [London] Telegraph article about “America’s Secret Backing for Rebel Leaders Behind Uprising” in Egypt, it revealed the leaders “have been planning ‘regime change’ for the past three years.” The article also contains a link to a “secret document.” The revolution in Egypt brought with it the return of the MB advisor Yusuf al-Qaradawi after thirty years of semi-exile. This was after British conservative leader David Cameron in January 2008 called for a ban on “preachers of hate,” including Qaradawi, from entering the United Kingdom. On December 17, 2010 Qaradawi said the MB “sanctioned martyrdom operations in Palestine…. They do not have bombs, so they turn themselves into bombs. This is a necessity.”
