I’ve been wavering back and forth on this, but more and more people I’ve proposed this theory to are beginning to say that there might be something to it.
Last week’s Sinai attack is still a mystery. A bunch of Palestinian terrorists kill the soldiers of a Muslim Brotherhood run country, all to get 2 APC vehicles with which to attack Israel! That’s very, very strange.
The first questions I asked were, who could be responsible, and what might they gain from it?
Other than saying the Palestinians are crazy and just like killing people (which we know to be true), there’s only one other answer that keeps popping up.
At first my friends thought the idea was too sophisticated for them to pull off. But now they’re not so sure.
The only group that gains by an Islamic group’s attack on the Egyptian army is Egyptian President Morsy and his Muslim Brotherhood.
Look what’s happened since the attack:
Morsy’s moved heavy armor, tanks, even fighter planes and gunships into the Sinai – and didn’t wait for Israel’s approval to do so.
He plans to keep them there, and perhaps even add more. (Not to attack Israel, but to violate and eventually kill the treaty).
Morsy did a coup, he fired the top Egyptian officers and replaced them – creating an internal loyalty realignment amongst the mid-level officers, as well as obviously his top level officers.
Morsy’s officially taken control over the Egyptian army, by announcing himself as the Supreme Commander on Egyptian TV (making the Muslim Brotherhood into the Big Giant Head, I suppose).
Morsy’s announced he’s reviewing the Camp David Accords in order to change them, because Egypt needs full and unrestricted control over the Sinai.
That’s a lot of convenient fallout from one attack.
At every level Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood gain by the Sinai attack, and in fact, they are the only winners. And that makes them the prime suspects behind the attack.
What do you think?
