Note: we hope to add links to some of Cliff Kincaid’s articles here, somehow, soon. In the mean time, you have his information and links to American Survival and Accuracy in Media, in the Gulag. We may update this further, but probably not for long. For more, please continue to visit the appropriate sites. And please spread the word in this war of knowledge. — AW
Trevor Loudon, Cliff Kincaid, James Simpson, and numerous, notable others have been explaining and showing the evidence: the Egyptian and Mideast uprisings are in large part incited by the global Marxist movement — and naturally, it is being supported globally — in a highly coordinated fashion.
Here are recent posts in Loudon’s New Zeal Blog, which spell it out to any skeptic. Titles and excerpts are listed below, starting with the latest at the time of this Gulag Bound entry.

John Catalinotto, Workers World Party, speaking at the Workers World Forum Feb. 4, 2011, in New York on the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions. Note the “Che” T-Shirt and red flags in Tunisia.
A Statement from Egyptian Trotskyists, the Revolutionary Socialists, posted on New Zealand’s Socialist Aotearoa blog.
The revolution in Egypt is not primarily Islamic – it is socialist/communist with a Muslim cover.
Below is a video of Communist Party of Australia leader Warren Smith speaking in Sydney.
Egypt has the potential to change the world…to shift the balance of forces in the Middle East…A progressive change in Egypt can provide the spark for change in Palestine.
Current events in Egypt and across the Arab world, demonstrate the potential to build and strengthen anti-imperialist fronts across the globe…These events challenge the domination of the U.S. dictatorship of capital…they challenge its economic, political and cultural domination…

I am astounded that Glenn Beck has been taken to task by some U.S. conservatives for asserting ties between radical Islam and the far left.
To any half decent researcher of the left, such denials border on the hilarious. Where have these people been? What planet do they live on? This is comparable to mocking Beck for asserting that the Pope is a Catholic.
David Horowitz’s Discover the Networks has been exposing this evil alliance for years.
Here’s a recent video taken at a January 29 ” Chicago Rally for the People of Egypt” in my beloved Michigan Avenue.

AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka is backing the Egyptian revolution.
From the Communist Party USA‘s Peoples World.
Egyptian workers…have broken away to form their own independent unions and federation and join the popular protests against President Hosni Mubarak’s dictatorial rule.
In a Jan. 30 declaration the new Egyptian Federation of Independent Unions said its demands include the right to organize and the right to work at a decent minimum wage, rather than be unemployed.
Like the other protesters, the new federation also demands Mubarak quit. The federation then called a general strike to back its demands.

Further evidence of the Soviet roots of Islamic terrorism.
From Ion Pacepa, the highest-ranking intelligence official ever to have defected from the former Eastern Bloc of the Soviet Union.
Pacepa was a two-star Romanian Securitate General who simultaneously held the rank of advisor to President Nicolae Ceaucescu, acting chief of his foreign intelligence service and state secretary in Romania’s Ministry of Interior.
In 1972, the Kremlin decided to turn the whole Islamic world against Israel and the U.S. As KGB chairman Yury Andropov told me, a billion adversaries could inflict far greater damage on America than could a few millions. We needed to instill a Nazi-style hatred for the Jews throughout the Islamic world, and to turn this weapon of the emotions into a terrorist bloodbath against Israel and its main supporter, the United States. No one within the American/Zionist sphere of influence should any longer feel safe.

Egypt is in the grip of revolutionary violence. The longstanding regime of Hosni Mubarak may be overthrown. If this happens, the consequences will be far-reaching. Egypt has the largest population and the strongest military in the Arab world. If a revolutionary Jihadist regime takes power in Egypt, then Saudi Arabia and the Gulf emirates will probably not survive. In that event, the oil-rich Persian Gulf will fall into the hands of radicals who are likely to use oil as a weapon against Europe, Japan and America. Following the pattern of other revolutionary regimes, the radicals will realign their respective countries with Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela.
Some of the most famous terrorists of recent history have been Egyptians. The PLO’s longtime terrorist leader, Yasser Arafat, was an Egyptian; and so was 9/11 mastermind and ringleader Mohammed Atta, as well as bin Laden’s lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahiri. We also have testimony from former East Bloc intelligence officials that these Egyptian luminaries worked for Moscow, for the KGB and/or its sister agencies. It is no accident that radical Islam’s concern for the oppressed underclass resembles liberation theology …as it seeks to unify the various sects of Islam by focusing popular rage against the Great Satan (America) and the Little Satan (Israel)…
A few U.S. commentators have mocked Glenn Beck for daring to suggest that socialists and communists would work side by side with Islamic extremists – something that has been well documented for years.
Bennis was a leading member of Oakland California based Line of March, a Maoist turned pro Soviet Marxist-Leninist organization.

Another British Socialist Workers Party leader, Alex Callinicos, on the Egyptian revolution
This is a revolution that is a dagger in the heart of U.S. imperialism…
82% of the Egyptian people have a negative view of the U.S….the highest in the world, so that gives you an indication of the potential cataclysm that faces the U.S.
A socialist revolution in Egypt can shake the whole world…
British Socialist Workers Party leader Judith Orr’s, eye witness account of the unfolding Egyptian socialist revolution.
What the people of Egypt… have been doing in these last few days has the potential to change not just Egypt, but the whole region… the whole world, because of the strategic importance of Egypt…
Bad language warning

Jim Simpson has written an excellent analysis of events in Egypt and Tunisia and the Obama Administration’s role in this debacle.
If Egypt should fall, it will mark the beginning of the end for what little remaining stability there is in the Middle East. Jordan is facing similar unrest, as is Algeria and Yemen. Lebanon and Tunisia fell in January. It is highly unlikely that these events are unrelated. A combination of leftist and Islamist forces provoked the protests, and we are likely looking at a ring of radical Islamic states rising up to surround Israel. Once their power is solidified, perhaps in a year or two, they will combine forces to attack Israel. If Israel falls, the United States will stand alone in a sea of virulent enemies and impotent allies.
So who does Obama support, Mubarak or his enemies?
Obama wasted no time in telling us. He supports Mubarak’s opponents, and probably has been all along. The Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday that the Obama administration favors a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in a new Egyptian government…

Fiery Sean Hannity interview with ultra-militant London Imam Anjem Choudary.
If only Hannity had been less confrontational, Choudary might have shown even more of his true views.
What comes across is the militant anti Americanism and “social justice” ultra-leftism of Britain’s most publicly militant Islamic cleric.
Many Westerners struggle to understand that radical Islam, is in many ways a tool of the Marxist – Leninist left.
While the two philosophies appear completely at odds, they do share a mutual hatred of “capitalism” and the Western values of individual responsibility and limited, constitutional government.
While many would argue the point, I would go so far as to say, that without a Marxist left to enable and manipulate them, there would be only a very minimal radical Islamic problem
|Muslim Brotherhood/ Revolutionary Socialist protest
against Egyptian regime, August 14, 2005.
Below are experts from a circa 2008 document by Egyptian Trotskyist Hossam El-Hamalawy, on how his comrades have worked to unite the Egyptian left and to “court” the Muslim Brotherhood in recent years. This has been a worldwide Trotskyist pattern for more than a decade.
Below is a video of Egyptian Revolutionary Socialist member Hossam el-Hamalawy speaking at the British Socialist Workers Party run Marxism 2008.
The Egyptian revolution is no spontaneous event. The Egyptian and international left has been building to this for some years.
Gulag Bound Note: This one, we will show in its entirety:
Statement issued by the Egyptian Communist Party, February 2, 2011
The hour of truth is near and the decisive moment has arrived when the Egyptian people pronounce their final word asserting the need to bring down Mubarak and change his regime. It seems that the life of the regime of tyranny (..) especially that its American masters have taken their hands off in the wake of the continuing revolution of the people and its escalation everywhere in Egypt.
The millions of people who have come out today to demand the departure of Mubarak will ensure the defeat of all the conspiracies of the dictator and his gang who aim to thwart the revolution and to circumvent it.
The agreement to form a committee that enjoys the confidence of the people and the demonstrators is a critical issue for achieving the political, economic and social demands of the revolution. And we stress the basic demands approved by the patriotic forces represented in the people’s parliament:
1 – The removal of Mubarak and the formation of a presidential council for a transitional period of specified duration.
2 – The formation of a coalition government that assumes the management of the country during the transitional period.
3 – To call for the formation of an elected constituent assembly to draft a new constitution for the country, based on the principle of the sovereignty of the nation and ensuring the devolution of power within the framework of a just democratic civil state.
4 – To prosecute those responsible for hundreds killed and injured among the martyrs of the Revolution and victims of security oppression, as well as prosecuting those responsible for plundering the wealth of the Egyptian people.
Long live the revolution of the Egyptian people
Yep, this is a “democratic” revolution folks. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Frank Gaffney and Nonie Darwish on Influence operations of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Self appointed spokesman for the Egyptian “revolution” Mohamed ElBaradei is not a man to inspire confidence in pro-Western circles.
As head of the U.N’s International Atomic Energy Agency (1997-2009) ElBaradei cultivated a circle of advisers, a “kitchen cabinet” – that included an accused Russian spy, Canadian national and IAEA Verification and Security head Tariq Rauf.
However it is ElBaradei’s service on the Board of the International Crisis Group that should really set alarm bells ringing.
With a staff of 130, based in 46 countries and an annual budget of $15.5 million, the I.C.G. is an influential but little publicized organization.
According to I.C.G.’s own website;
The International Crisis Group is now generally recognised as the world’s leading independent, non-partisan, source of analysis and advice to governments, and intergovernmental bodies like the United Nations, European Union and World Bank, on the prevention and resolution of deadly conflict. Our work has been applauded by, among others, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan (‘a global voice of conscience, and a genuine force for peace’)…
A more accurate description might be – meddlesome cabal of internationalists, mega “capitalists”, socialists and communist troublemakers.
ElBaradei’s I.C.G. Board colleagues include;
Thomas R. Pickering – Co-Chair, Crisis Group Former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Russia, India, Israel, Jordan, El Salvador and Nigeria Vice Chairman of Hills & Company – a member of the Science and Security Board for the communist initiated and infiltrated Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists
Cheryl Carolus – Former South African High Commissioner to the UK and Secretary General of the A.N.C. Carolus was also in the early 1990s, a member of the South African Communist Party “Interim Leadership Group”.
The American AFL-CIO , the International Confederation of Trade Unions and the communist controlled World Federation of Trade Unions are all throwing their wight behind the unfolding Egyptian revolution.
A general strike, to continue until Mubarak’s government falls,has been called by the newly formed Federation of Egyptian Trade Unions.
The AFL-CIO, America’s main labor federation, along with nearly all the rest of the world’s trade union movement, has thrown its weight behind Egypt’s pro-democracy demonstrators.

Further to my article on the situation in Egypt this morning, and my 2007 article on the annual Cairo Conference and its ties with the Socialist Workers Party which I just re-posted, I am cross-posting an article below by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton. In it she zeros in on… you guessed it, George Soros’ connection to the situation in Egypt…
|The 1st Edition of Wasla – The Link Featuring Mohamed Mustafa ElBaradei on the Cover|
Riots. We are seeing them erupt throughout the Middle East everywhere we look: Tunisia, Algeria, Albania, Yemen, Jordan and of course, Egypt. And in the wings, drooling with horrific glee, Iran is pushing and prodding for a Muslim uprising to oust the enemies of Islam – primarily the US and Israel – using their Muslim Brotherhood henchmen and utilizing Hezbollah and Hamas. And Iran’s chosen vessel for Egypt – Mohamed ElBaradei, who, until a day or two ago, was under house arrest.
You remember ElBaradei right? He’s the tool for the IAEA who kept giving blessings to Iran and their nuclear program. But I’m sure he’s a good guy - he has a Nobel Peace Prize just like Obama does. Wait a minute… On second thought, I guess that designation is pretty much a joke currently. I’m also sure it is a huge coincidence that George Soros and ElBaradei both sit on the Board of trustees for the International Crisis Group.
Some Trotskyist “solidarity” from the Asia-Pacific region for the unfolding Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions.
Socialist Party of Malaysia solidarity statement with the People’s Uprising in Egypt, Tunisia and the Middle East
January 29, 2011 — The Socialist Party of Malaysia (PSM) would like to express its solidarity with the revolutionary masses in Egypt, as well as in Tunisia and other countries in North Africa and the Middle East, for their courageous struggle against repressive regimes which are mostly backed by US-led imperialist powers.
The flame of anger and people’s power is spreading in North Africa and the Middle East, and this has made the ruling regimes in the region tremble in front of the rising of massive revolutionary waves. The Tunisian revolution which sparked off in December 2010 has put an end to the 23-year rule of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who came to power through a coup d’état…
Besides Tunisia and Egypt, there are also massive waves of protest sweeping across Algeria, Yemen, Jordan and other parts of the Arab world. These people’s struggles deserve our solidarity…
[Gulag Note: long and authoritative]
Video of a January 29 Auckland New Zealand “Egyptian Solidarity” protest organized by Trotskyist splinter group Socialist Aotearoa.
First up speaker is rabidly anti Israeli, die-hard Marxist Green Party MP Keith Locke – who makes the point that any new Egyptian government will be far more pro Palestinian and far more anti Israel than than the Mubarak regime.
Second speaker is Socialist Aotearoa leader Joe Carolan, a veteran of the Political Committee of the Irish Socialist Workers Party. Carolan claims that the revolution will spread through the Arab world and into Greece, Spain and France. I believe we can take his word for that.
Here is a re-post a column I wrote in July 2007 on the links between the international Trotskyist movement (including NZ Socialist Worker) and the Muslim Brotherhood and other Egyptian revolutionary groups.
The British Socialist Workers Party (the main force behind last years student rioting in Britain) and other European and American Trotskyists and communists have been working with the Egyptian left and muslim brotherhood for years.
The current events in Egypt have been a long time in the making.
Socialist Worker NZ is the sister party of the British Socialist Workers Party.
Since 2002, the SWP have been key participants in a series of annual conferences held in Cairo.
The Cairo Conference against U.S. hegemony and war on Iraq and in solidarity with Palestine generally known simply as Cairo Anti-war Conference, is an anti-war and anti-neo-liberalism conference held regularly since 2002 in Cairo, Egypt.
Those Westerners who believe that the ongoing turmoil in Egypt and Tunisia may lead to a flowering of “democracy” in the Arab world are in for bitter disappointment.
For years European and American Trotskyists and communists have been working with Egyptian leftists and the Muslim Brotherhood to oust pro US dictator Hosni Mubarak.
If the Egyptian revolution succeeds Egypt will turn both further to the left and to radical Islam. This will have huge implications for the security of Israel , regional stability (if you can even use such a word in the Middle East) and the security of the Suez Canal and Western oil supply and trade lines.
Already Trotskyists and communist forces around the world are rallying in support of the Egyptian revolution.
From an article by Egyptian socialist Wassim Wagdy in Britain’s Socialist Worker Online
They said they would be there, and they were. The 25 January was declared a “Day of Anger” by democratic and socialist forces a week beforehand…
