Al Ahram, Egypt
Offices of American NGOs Reveal Scheme to 'Partition' Egypt
possible that American citizens, now under arrest in Cairo, were involved with
a plot to partition Egypt into four smaller states? According to columnist
Muhammad Dunia of Egypt's state-run Al-Ahram, maps that were discovered
during a raid on the Cairo offices of the U.S.-based International Republican Institute prove that at least
some of the foreign NGOs operating in Egypt are actively involved with the
scheme, which Dunia calls a long-term 'American-Zionist' project.
Over the past few days, some
Western media have begun to revisit the old idea of a plan to partition Egypt based
on the American-Zionist project to divide the country into four states.
The first would be in the
Sinai, east of the Nile River delta, under Jewish influence. The second, with
Alexandria as its capital and extending South to Asyut, would be Christian. The
third would be in the Nubia
region, and the fourth would be a Berber state with Cairo as its capital.
Up to now, some thought the
ravings about this suspicious plot were for domestic political consumption only.
But during the investigation into illegal funding of non-governmental
organizations by Egyptian justice, maps were found inside an American
non-governmental organization [the International
Republican Institute] laying out plans to partition the country.
The subject wasn't really a
secret, as a scheme to divide Egypt into an Islamic State in the North and a
Christian one in the South was leaked on the Internet not long ago. This is
particularly dangerous because some international media have exploited the
protests at the Maspiro
TV station [by Coptic Christians - 27 were killed]. Certain analysts and
researchers of Middle East affairs sought to revive the notion by posting
partition maps on the Web. This demonstrates both foreign and domestic hands
behind what is happening now in Egypt.
Let us return to the
partition maps, which confirm the existence of the scheme, and which turned up
during a raid on the American NGO headquarters. The plan can be traced back to
a British Middle East scholar of Jewish origin, Bernard Lewis. It was
Lewis who came up with the most detailed plan for partitioning the Arab and
Islamic world from Pakistan to Morocco. The plan was published in the U.S.
Defense Department magazine. So who is Bernard Lewis?
An expert on military
strategy, General Sameh Sayf al-Yazal, says that according to the information available,
Lewis was born in London in 1916, is a British Middle East researcher of Jewish
faith, and a Zionist. He is a U.S. citizen who graduated from the University of
London in 1936, where he taught Oriental and African studies. He delved deeply
and frequently into the history of Islam and Muslims, writing negatively about
it - and became a recognized expert on the subject.
In 1980, when the Iran-Iraq War
was raging, U.S. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Bzerzhinsky said that the dilemma
for the United States would be how to correct the borders agreed to under the Sykes-Picot Agreement by
triggering a second Gulf War. This would be waged along the sidelines of the
first one - the Iraq-Iran War. After Bzerzhinsky made this statement, the U.S.
Defense Department commissioned Zionist conspirator Bernard Lewis to draw up
his now famous scheme to individually dismantle the constitutional unity of Arab
and Muslim states, including Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Iran, Turkey,
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states and the nations of
North Africa. The new nations would be partitioned along ethnic, religious,
sectarian and tribal lines. He included detailed maps with his plan, which were
drawn up under his direct supervision.
Regarding the details of the
U.S.-Zionist project to partition the Muslim world, General Sayf al-Yazal adds
that according to Bernard Lewis, Egypt is destined to be divided into four
states. The first would be comprised of the Sinai and east of the Nile River Delta
and be under Jewish influence in order to achieve the Jewish dream of a land
spanning from the Nile to the Euphrates. The second would be a Christian state
with Alexandria as its capital. Its area would extend south of Bahr Yusuf to southern Asyut, stretch westward to
include al-Fayum, and follow
the line of the desert through Wadi al-Natrun to make the
new nation contiguous with Alexandria. It would also be widened to include part
of the coastal area stretching to Mersa Matruh. The third
state of Nubia, which would run along the border with North Sudan and the
Sahara Desert, would have its capital in Aswan and would connect up with the
southern part of Egypt, also known as Upper Egypt. Nubia would share a border
with the Berber state, which would extend from southern Morocco to the Red Sea.
This would essential comprise Islamic Egypt with Cairo as its capital, and would
include all the remaining parts of Egypt. This nation, too, would be destined
to be under Israeli influence, and would be within the purview of the Greater
Israel coveted by the Jews.
According to General Sayf
al-Yazal, this information confirms beyond doubt that these plans against Egypt
have been under development for years; that foreign hands seek to topple Egypt
by exploiting the violence that has erupted since the revolution; and that foreign
hands seek to implement this plan and revive the idea of partitioning Egypt.
The latest evidence is the partition maps discovered during a raid of the offices
of an American organization operating in Egypt [the International
Republican Institute]. It is a notion that has already been mentioned by
foreign media, and several international seminars have been organized to
discuss the possibility within the context of political developments in the
Middle East - and Egypt in particular. The goal is to partition the region's largest
country into smaller states that will be incapable of facing down the major
global blocs. General al-Yazal warns people not to be drawn into implementing the
scheme, and that all segments of Egyptian society should be aware of these
plans and do whatever it takes to put a stop to them.
