Les sales magouilles israéliennes en Égypte

Pendant les massacres (15 août), l’envoyé diplomatique de l’Union européenne Bernardino Leon révèle que lui et l’envoyé américain William Burns avaient obtenu l’accord des Frères pour lever les sit-ins, et que les militaires égyptiens l’avaient rejeté à peine quelques heures avant de déclencher la répression :

The EU’s special envoy to the Middle East, Bernardino Leon, has said the Egyptian army rejected a peace deal with the Muslim Brotherhood a few hours before the killing in Cairo began.

He told Reuters that he and US diplomat William Burns in recent days brokered an agreement between the military and the brothers on how to end their month-long sit-ins in two city squares.

Avant-hier, le New York Times publie un très long article intitulé « Comment les espoirs américains d’un accord en Égypte ont été minés » (18 août) :

La fin de l’article est explicite : les diplomates européens et étatsuniens considèrent que ce sont les Israéliens qui agissaient auprès du général Sisi pour faire échouer leurs efforts de parvenir à une solution négociée.

Western diplomats say that General Sisi and his circle appeared to be in heavy communication with Israeli colleagues, and the diplomats believed the Israelis were also undercutting the Western message by reassuring the Egyptians not to worry about American threats to cut off aid.

Et ce second article du New York Times (19 août)) affirme que les Israéliens sont en pleine campagne diplomatique, maintenant que la situation est totalement instable (la faute à qui ?), pour protéger le régime égyptien contre des sanctions européennes et américaines :

Israel plans this week to intensify its diplomatic campaign urging Europe and the United States to support the military-backed government in Egypt despite its deadly crackdown on Islamist protesters, according to a senior Israeli official involved in the effort.

Egyptian Military Backed Out Of Prisoner-Release Deal That Could Have Averted Killings : Sources

Egyptian Military Backed Out Of Prisoner-Release Deal That Could Have Averted Killings: Sources

CAIRO — A week before the Egyptian government ordered Wednesday’s deadly clearing of two Muslim Brotherhood protest camps, military leaders and the Brotherhood very nearly came to an agreement that involved a prisoner release and other measures that might have averted the catastrophe, The Huffington Post has learned.

The notion of such a plan, mediated by a handful of diplomats from the U.S. and Europe — including U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and EU Special Representative Bernardino Leon — was first reported on Wednesday by Reuters. HuffPost has learned that the terms of the proposed deal would have seen the Muslim Brotherhood reduce the size of their protest camps by half, and the military release two notable prisoners: Saad El-Katatni, the chairman of the Brotherhood’s political party who was arrested during the military takeover in July, and Abou Elela Mady, the chairman of the Islamist al-Wasat Party who was locked up in the aftermath.

Brotherhood leaders had agreed in principle to the plan, but in the end the military-backed government declined to take part, sources say.

EU diplomat : Egyptian army rejected peace plan
http://euobserver.com/foreign/121127

The EU’s special envoy to the Middle East, Bernardino Leon, has said the Egyptian army rejected a peace deal with the Muslim Brotherhood a few hours before the killing in Cairo began.

He told Reuters that he and US diplomat William Burns in recent days brokered an agreement between the military and the brothers on how to end their month-long sit-ins in two city squares.

“We had a political plan that was on the table, that had been accepted by the other side [the brotherhood] … They [the army] could have taken this option. So all that has happened today was unnecessary,” he said.

He noted that he made a final appeal on the peace plan to military chiefs “hours” before they ordered the assault, at 7am local time on Wednesday (14 August), using armoured bulldozers and live ammunition against people in tent camps.
