Ooh Lala Ooh Lala: Egypt’s Morsi Ousted!


Ooh Lala Ooh Lala: Egypt’s Morsi Ousted!

“Ooh Lala ooh Lala was the song I saw Egypt’s military chief play after toppling reactionary dictator Mohammed Morsi.

 

Abdel Fattah al-Sisi,, the army chief and world’s most revered politician, shortly after arresting the top leadership of ousted government told people: “Ya Habibi I will introduce real democracy you had been enjoying since the birth of Pharaoh”.

 

The army chief told the people of Egypt that they had been ruled by a dictator for the first time in the history of the country for a complete year and his democratic armed forces could no longer tolerate these tyrants.

 

A cleric from Egypt’s Al Azhar University and opposition leader Mohammed ElBaradei danced and also sang Ooh Lala Ooh Lala while supporting what they saw as beginning of the end of “dictatorship” which other countries confused with democracy after the fall of former strongman Hosni Mobarak..

 

King Abdullah from Saudi Arbaia, whose family has been sweeping general elections since the Kingdom came into being and who doesn’t allow uttering a single word against democracy, was the first to felicitate Egypt’s new democratic rulers who purged the country of dictatorship.

 

In fact, the King was scared of the nascent dictatorship in Egypt as it has been misguiding the people in other Arab democratic countries against their great leaders.

 

The dictatorship in Egypt had paved its way through a movement called “Arab autumn” unleashed by some illiterate and wicked people.

 

The Arab autumn ended up ousting all time great politicians Muammar Qaddafi from Libya and Zein al-Abedin from Tunisia.

 

One of the aforementioned leaders’ bombarded cities filled with flag bearers of Arab autumn but unfortunately ended up ceding power while the other left no stone unturned to crush the movement. But to no avail.

 

How on earth, King Abdullah can allow such wicked people to materialize their nefarious designs!.

 

Ooh Lala, Ooh Lala… comes Bashr al-Assad.  Assad saw fall of political Islam with the ouster of Morsi, a dictator with no support from people of Egypt.

 

Assad has been struggling to save his democratically elected government from a movement which was also inspired by Arab autumn. He has killed only 100,000 people since the beginning of the movement and has managed to import foreign mercenaries to kill his misguided opponents who don’t like his genuine democracy.

 

 

Almost all the democratic Gulf States patted the Egyptian army on the back for its role in saving democracy.

 

Although, the UK and the US are wrongly concerned over the ouster of a dictator in Egypt, they have showed some leniency by not branding the overthrowing of Morsi a military coup… Thank God!

 

 

 

At the end I have realized that It was not any of the aforesaid personalities singing or saying Ooh Lala, Ooh Lala.. Actually, I was listening to a song “ Raani main……to Raaja.” from Son of Sardar when the saviors of democracy came to the rescue of Egypt.

 

 

However, Egyptian army’s claims about restoring democracy should not be taken as tall claim made in the song which I was listening to. “ Chal Mairi Chandar Mukkhi….Aish Karaun Ga…Tokyo Main tere Liye Taaj Mahal Banaun Ga..

    Is it Arab Autumn or Spring?
    But, democratic army-chief is definitely better than a democratic dictator!

    In the interest of cleaning up their public image, army chiefs from certain countries have decided to folliw Generals Zia & Musharaff models by bring directly elected to their army posts. In case of dire need to save the country by suspending constitutions, these elected army chiefs are of course acting in the greater interests of democracy.

      Some are the “good dictators” like Musharraf, as Bush would have said. They are all invariably been through and qualied with flying colours by the US institutes for the seniors members of (including foreign) armed forces often called the “Colleges of Dictators” and Egyptian Gen Sissi is no exception.

        Mursi ki Kursi …. Ab sab par bhari ….

        Sadly, lack of condemnation for a coup by the ‘champions of democracy’, ending in removal of a democratically elected government (regardless of ones own likes or dislikes), only goes to undermine the argument for institution of democracy. If the Brother Hood brings a 100,000 to Tahrir Square when another elected government is in place then there will be no justification of any moaning and condemnation as a precedent has been set.

        I may not be a Mursi fan but a year into to government and the means of his removal are condemnable purely because of personal belief in democracy whereby the losing party has to learn to tolerate the winner for a while.

    Mr Abdul Hafeez
    Reference your contention in the first two paragraphs:
    “Abdel Fattah al-Sisi,, the army chief and world’s most revered politician, shortly after arresting the top leadership of ousted government told people: “Ya Habibi I will introduce real democracy you had been enjoying since the birth of Pharaoh”.

    The army chief told the people of Egypt that they had been ruled by a dictator for the first time in the history of the country for a complete year and his democratic armed forces could no longer tolerate these tyrants”.

    If it was intended as sarcasm, it was invidious and if it was your deduction, it was hideous. That puny joker, the sissy Abdel Fattah must hang his head in shame that a huge chunk of Egyptian land is under Israeli occupation since 1967 and those pseudo democrats only exercise their military power to topple civilian Establishments. No army is ever Democratic. Every army runs on discipline – orders given and orders taken. Unquestioning obedience to command. Their’s not to reason why ….. Theirs’ to do or die” wrote Henry Longfellow.

    From the spectacular show of force by the milling crowds of protesters at the Tehreer Square, it is obvious that a great majority of Egyptians wanted to revoke their mandate given to Morsi. Why couldn’t that be accomplished in the Parliament with requisite numbers supporting the Bill of NO Confidence against Mr Morsi and compel snap Elections? But it seems that one Arab spring has set a pattern for the sheep to follow the beaten path. It is obvious from the reference the Egyptian Army Chief gave to the crowds of reviving the traditional pageantry of the Pharaoh”s reigns, it only points to the delusional despair of a political straggler.

    Nevertheless, I wholeheartedly agree with your last para: ” However, Egyptian army’s claims about restoring democracy should not be taken as tall claim made in the song which I was listening to. “ Chal Mairi Chandar Mukkhi….Aish Karaun Ga…Tokyo Main tere Liye Taaj Mahal Banaun Ga..

    despite the worst situation, i am glad we are on the path to democracy.We have free media, free judiciary and a national consensus that democracy is the way to go.!. Egypt unfortunately doesnt understand that. This is like the 1970s pakistan

    Hmm at least the gist of your article is correct. Despite winning 6 elections Morsi’s opponents still call him a dictator, lol. Morsi had no control over the army or security forces so how exactly could he have been carrying out dictatorial powers? This is a clear sign that the deep state in Egypt aligned with remnants of the Mubarak regime have joined to overthrow a democratically elected leader.

    How stupid are those people who support the un-democratic toppel of Morsi Government. Morsi had come into power not from back door, but through elections when also he faced lots of obstacles but at last he was declared as winner. It is irony that democratic victory of Islamic movements is not tolerable by the West backed armies. Due to the reason that Islamic movements are not allowed to succeed through ballot, they have no option but to opt for the bullet – and then this blind and deaf world call them “terrorists”. In fact you people don’t want peace in the world.

    I guess Sisi is trying to show he is no sissy. He seems to have learnt a thing or too from Musharaff (another Turkish connection!) too – getting masses on to tge street —-And the Arabs thought Ottomans were the oppressors!!!!
