In an intelligence memo written in January 1916, T. E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia) described the Arab Revolt as “…beneficial to us, because it marches with our immediate aims, the break up of the Islamic 'bloc' and the defeat and disruption of the Ottoman Empire, and because the states [Sharif Hussein] would set up to succeed the Turks would be … harmless to ourselves … The Arabs are even less stable than the Turks. If properly handled they would remain in a state of political mosaic, a tissue of small jealous principalities incapable of cohesion”.
As time went on, current events proved Lawrence’s vision true.. Even more, the entire western colonial forces adopted and elaborated it as an enduring tactic of “Manipulate & Control” serving their long term strategy for complete hegemony over the third world in general, yet the Middle East and African continent in a specific and systematic way.
The USA has been using its CIA along with other agencies precisely for the sole purpose of doing that.. Ever since the closure of WWI, western intelligence agencies have been absorbed in developing means and resources just to establish that goal; and what’s making thing easier for them is our unfading “Fanatic Tribal Belonging”.
Ever since the fading dusk of the Omawite Khalifate and till our present day, and all Arab and Muslim nation is torn apart in small helpless fragments just because of the rise of that virus which Islam came to obliterate: “Fanatic Tribal Belonging” that brings family before society, blood ties before civil and human ones, thus emotions before reason.. That’s why those youngsters everywhere in the Muslim world have allowed their anger to erupt into an uncontrolled rage causing unnecessary deaths and losses.
The west knew us better than ourselves and is doing everything in his power to maintain our On/Off switches at his safe custody.
To that very reason we lost Palestine, Jerusalem, Golan, Iraq, Sudan, Yemen, Lybia, and now Syria which have been all driven into sectarian and religious futile conflicts that resulted in dismembering each into destructed poor and indebted fragments of pieces.. Not to mention the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf satellite states which embrace and enjoy an eternal orgasmic relation with the western powers and Israel on top!!
I fear that the Egyptian file is out of the drawer now and is subject to updating and refining.. Remember the 2009 report of the CFR (Council on Foreign Affairs) about civil unrest in Egypt? It presented a detailed outlines for a Plan of Action “…to be adopted when the time comes.”!
We were instructed, no.. We were ordered to change ourselves if we want change to come.. We were ordered to Prepare whatever we can to confront the enemy.. But if we can’t even unite as we do five times a day in prayer, then our chances to get out of our eight centuries long dark age are simply NONE.
Pass On The Word.
