Ukraine vs. Egypt: Chaos in progress

“Obviously, I was watching the Ukrainian version of the Tahrir Square revolution.   Is it a coincidence? Is it only my imagination?  … I don’t think so”

By Dr. Ashraf Ezzat

Kiev, Cairo

Though I’ve never been to Ukraine or Russia before but the minute I started following the news of the huge protests in Kiev, I felt like I was somehow connected /related in a strange way to this Ukrainian revolution.

This whole revolution thing sounded not so unfamiliar to me.

As days went by and as the violence and the smoke that came out of the heavily fortified Maidan/independence square got heavier I thought I was looking at a retrospective of the Egyptian revolution with all the violent clashes that took place in Tahrir Square during the winter of 2011-2012.

My Egyptian eyes were following the fluid situation in Kiev with a funny sense of uneasy prediction. I felt like I knew how things were going to unfold in that Ukrainian scene, simply because I had seen it happen before in my own country, Egypt.

Of course I know that because we had a recent revolution in Egypt doesn’t necessarily make it the blueprint for all revolutions to follow across the globe.

But the way things evolved inside Independence Square and the pattern of violence and chaos that ensued around Ukraine left me in no doubt.

The same illustrated flyer was handed out to Egyptian and Ukrainian protesters, it reads "Essential clothing and gears for violent protests".
An illustrated flyer that was handed out to Egyptian and Ukrainian protesters, it reads “Essential clothing and gears for violent protests”.

I mean even the pamphlets handed out to the Ukrainian protesters to instruct them on how to protect themselves from the tear gas beside other combat precautions were the same handed out to the Egyptian protesters in Tahrir square only the illustration language was different.

Clearly, I was watching the Ukrainian version of the Tahrir Square revolution.   Is it a coincidence? Is it only my imagination?  … I don’t think so.

Every day I followed the Ukrainian news with a silly grin on my face for I knew, beforehand, what the headlines were going to be.

I knew that whoever called for the protests are groups of so called political activists, very active on the internet social media sites.

Of course those activists have strong links to western NGOs and so called freedom organizations. And also some of the leaders of those activists have been trained in Europe on how to launch mass protests.

Also Egyptian activists who sparked the first mass protests on January 25 2011, like April 6th movement, have been trained by Srđa Popović, a Serbian activist who’s been cooperating with US intelligence companies in clandestine missions .

Popovic is the leader of the student movement Otpor that helped topple Serbian president Slobodan Milošević. He is also the director of Centre for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS) which is very active in Eastern European countries including Ukraine.

They are even trained on how to exploit all kinds of media to spread their disingenuous message internationally – like this interesting video of a Ukrainian beauty fighting for freedom and struggling for western democracy from inside Independence Square.

The woman’s call for world solidarity, that went viral on YouTube, is carefully edited to portray the Ukrainians as if they were resisting another Nazi occupation where in fact they were being deluded by the phony glare of US/EU dream.

Ukrainian protesters dreamed of Europe’s freedom and prosperity when Europe had actually nothing for them except bailout and long term chain of indebtedness.

I knew that all it took for the rallies to swell was controlled violence.

It only takes a couple of dramatic photos and some video footage of protesters being attacked and brutalized by police forces to be posted on the internet. And that’s it; you have a revolution on the go.

But what this whole thing needed to turn into another Tahrir Square, with Mubarak/ Yanukovych kicked out of power was a nice score of protesters gunned down by what should look as police snipers.

According to the Arab Spring’s manual; Rallies turn into a revolution only when someone amongst the protesters gets killed.

So I knew that the protests wouldn’t stay peaceful for long; I knew that the Maidan would be targeted by professional snipers, and that the protesters would respond with raids of Molotov cocktail.

Day after day the violent protests in Kiev began to blow way out of proportion. It was hard to believe that this thing first erupted over signing some trade deal.

As Putin put it “the Maidan protests was turning into an orgy of ultranationalists, far right radicals and neo-Nazis wearing Swastika arm bands”

Likewise, Egyptian protests have been hijacked by Radical Salafists, Afghanistan Jihadists and of course MB (mother ship of all Islamist terrorist groups worldwide)

And ironically, in both the Egyptian and Ukrainian case, the US/EU have supported the radicals and militants. Western democracy works in a really mysterious way.

By the way, real protesters and genuine freedom fighters never join rallies and sit-ins carrying bottles of Molotov cocktail.

Gandhi or Guevara was never caught attacking or setting police stations alight.

Whenever you spot firearms, Molotov cocktail bottles, or Kalashnikov guns and daggers, as in the case of Kiev’s protesters then we are watching not a peaceful march of democracy, as the American administration likes to call it, but a remotely guided rebellion and so called creative chaos – courtesy of Arab’s beloved, Mrs. Condoleezza Rice.

The thin red line

You see, there is a line any freedom protesters shouldn’t cross or even get confused about. That line is the thin red one that separates the regime from the state.

You have, as a political activist the right to criticize, denounce and even call for the fall of any regime but you must do that while keeping away from demolishing the pillars of the state you belong to and live in.

Taking down the regime is one thing, but demolishing the foundations of any sovereign state is a totally different story.

Anti-regime protests are signs of vibrant democracy, but demolishing the power of the police and military forces, and terrorizing the Judiciary system and media institutions are grave symptoms of a nation sabotaged by 4th generation warfare.

People often wonder why Egyptians pulled out a second revolution against Mohamed Morsi, the puppet of the International terrorist web of Muslim Brotherhood (MB)

Well, after the MB had risen to power they simply and swiftly embarked on demolishing the pillars of the Egyptian state and flagrantly replaced it with MB figures and alternative institutions.

MB got away with hijacking the Egyptian revolution but they were stupid enough to cross that thin red line.

Actually the revolutions that swept across the Arab World throughout the last three years targeted not dictatorships but had one goal in focus, demolishing and liquefying the major Arab countries – with the help of elements of extremism and fragmentation, namely Jihadists, Salafis, Takfiris and of course MB

Unfortunately this is exactly where Ukraine is steadfastly headed – with the stupid help of the far right and the new Nazis.

So I knew that hundreds in Kiev would be severely wounded and many killed … and most regrettably in vain.

I knew that organized gangs of ultra-nationalist militants, like gangs of MB militants in Egypt did, would be ordered to move all around Ukraine and target police headquarters, especially the anti-Riot security units and special forces (Berkut).

I knew that the Ukrainian police wouldn’t be able to hold back for long and that they would eventually fall and disappear leaving the city of Kiev and all of Ukraine defenseless. And that is exactly what happened in Egypt before.

Watch this video of violent Ukrainian protesters storming into a municipal building and brutally attacking police forces.

I knew that after the security vacuum, the Ukrainian president would pack up in a hurry and flee the country with his closest aides.

After weeks of escalating protests and violence Ukraine lay naked and vulnerable, in the coldest days of a bitter winter, before the world to see the game of creating chaos in the name of democracy at work … once again.

Russian spring

I knew that nobody in Ukraine or Russia had seen this coming, simply because this whole revolution business had been orchestrated from outside the two countries.

I knew that this whole thing was nothing but the Arab spring’s drones targeted upwards.

It was pre-planned not only because of years of preparatory work of the so called western NGOs in Ukraine, or the American support for the fragile opposition and the earlier and ominous visit and dinner with the beastly John MaCcain, but actually because Russia was getting out of line … once again.

Hadn’t been for the strong Putin and his intervention in the Middle East, Syria and Iraq would have been history by now.

If the devastation of the Arab Spring hadn’t been somewhat curtailed by Russia, or hadn’t the US/Zionist conspiracy been exposed by the audacious stance of the Egyptian military we would have been looking at a totally different Middle East now – The so called new Middle East.

I knew that this whole Ukrainian chaotic situation was not about freedom or democracy. It was not even about Ukraine in the first place. I knew that the Russian bear was the target of this “time for democracy in Ukraine – stunt”

I’m not trying to downplay the right of the Ukrainian or Egyptian peoples’ to protest and express their dissatisfaction over economic hardships and political corruption. But I think we should look closer into who’s steering those revolutions into chaos and disintegration. We should also stop for a while and ponder over the similar patterns of those recent uprisings.

I knew that the US & EU would endorse the protesters’ riot and violence whilst presumptuously demanding the Russians to keep out of it.

Vladimir Putin
Vladimir Putin, will he stay in control?

US and EU is also expecting the Kremlin to show self-restraint and abide by international laws – the very same laws US trod over in Iraq and Afghanistan and Syria –  otherwise they will consider kicking the Russian bear out of the G8 and maybe deny Mosco the right to Veto at their prestigious UN

But I think Self-restraint could sound obscenely ridiculous when asked of some international power whose very national security and borders are being under direct attack.

Besides any young politician around the world knows for a fact that Russia, given the current geopolitics of the Ukrainian crisis, absolutely can’t afford to give up or get out of Crimea.

So, I believe we are all going to witness a very exciting and dangerous spring.

… the Russian spring.

  1. For some reason, I have not received any emails from Dr. Ashraf Ezzat’s site in a while…just checking to make sure y’all still do this.


  2. An Egyptian reporter has posed as a revolutionary to the American NGOs, and was on a talk show describing the training process. She was selected among a few dozen other to lead young people. They ( national endowment for democracy and the ford foundation ) gave her and the others a trip to Serbia, where they spen a couple weeks enacting several senarios of how to push the police to act against them while one of them video record only the police reaction.

    The whole thing is like a cookbook receipe! A sniper team on roof tops killing people randomly as they blame the government for such action to create anger and unrest.


  3. “My Egyptian eyes were following the fluid situation in Kiev with a funny sense of uneasy prediction. I felt like I knew how things were going to unfold in that Ukrainian scene, simply because I had seen it happen before in my own country, Egypt.”
    Your reflections on the Ukrainian revolution and the Egyptian revolution of 2011 as a possible blueprint, reminded me of Iranian Green Movement of 2009. Possibly the latter did not have much influence on Tunisia’s revolution but the Tunisian revolution, to a large degree, and the Iranian revolution, to a lesser degree had some influence on the Egyptian revolution. Also, in case of Iran and Egypt, the writings of Gene Sharp, with affiliation with US intelligent, on non-violence movement was to some degree effective.
    I watched the Egyptian Revolution, with my “Iranian eyes” and hoped that that nation would have leaned a lessons from the history of Iran and I was very dismayed at the outcome – though it was expected.


  4. Excellent analysis. When these events began unfolding, I had the same thoughts of it all being staged, albeit not as predictably scripted as you described, owing to your Egyptian perspective and experience. As an American, I viewed it from but one more area outside of America’s sphere of influence and as a bumbling attempt at another Democracy crusade and nation building, which is entirely contrary to the Founding Father’s of our nation, and which is so hypocritical it would be laughable, if not for the carnage and poor people in those areas undergoing such disruption and chaos in their country, not to mention an America in debt and with many problems here at home. I find it disgraceful to see Senator John McAmnesty McCain over there preaching about democracy and aiding and abetting unruly mobs bent on mayhem and bringing a country down. Every chance that I get, I call my Congressman and protest American interventionism in matters, which are none of our business and out of our sphere of influence. As you know, many of these U.S. politicians are either willing dupes of the New World Order (NWO) and/or simply very stupid or evil. In any case, they do not represent the will of the American people and will sooner or later be voted office and hopefully be held accountable for their criminal activity here and abroad. Lastly, I could not help but see the similarity between protests in Ukraine and what we witnessed here a year or so ago with the Occupy Wallstreet mob, which apparently began peacefully with legitimate complaints but soon became an obvious attempt at creating chaos in the streets. Here in my home town, our mayor nipped it in the bud and didn’t allow it to get out of hand. Of course, most of us law-abiding citizens here are armed, so if the police can’t handle our light work, we sure as heck can in a heart beat.


  5. See the similarities with the failed “student upraising” in Venezuela that has left 31 dead and hundred of injured in an attempt to bring down the democratically elected government of Nicolas Maduro.


  6. Dr. Ezzat, thank you for your interesting comparative analysis. It seems that time passes so quickly nowadays that lies are starting to collide with lies. No sooner some principle is declared (and enforced) than a situation arises where those, who have just declared and imposed that principle, find it not in their interests to apply such principle again. And so they twist and turn things inside out in order to now justify not using it – thus, getting entangled in their own lies. Which makes it easier for people to see things for what they are – to see the truth (if one is willing to see it).


  7. Some people might notice that the Zionism was born in the Ukraine. The “Israelis”, in their vast majority hail from the Ukraine like their neo-con cousins in America. The project of a Jewish state in the Ukraine was a long-lasting dream, thwarted by Ukraineans, and then by Stalin. Ironically, the Nazis would not have been opposed to such an idea. They failed to apply it, because all Jews fled to the interior of Russia. Again, ironically, when they returned they immediately revived the project of a Jewish Soviet Republic in Crimea, to replace the Tatars deported by Stalin because of their collaboration with the Germans. They were to be funded by American Jews, prospect that Stalin did not appreciate to much.
    What happens today is the same push, certainly modified not to be so glaringly obvious. The neo-fascist and nationalist are just dupes, useful idiots, “fellow travellers” that would be removed.
    Of course the final objective is the “Russian Spring”.




  8. Yes Ashraf and can I add background stuff like PNAC and George Soros, plus the usual other villains behind deliberate destruction and chaos making, not least the global banksters.


  9. Great article… indeed… we were all watching and saying the exact same thing… Egypt revisited… And the western media is rejoicing and using inflammatory words to worsen the situation… One thing they forgot, Russia is closely and immediately concerned and involved… This is not Syria, Iraq, Libya, or Egypt… Crimea will always be part of Russia even though they gave it to Soviet Ukraine…. whether the west wants it or not…


  10. great analysis/analogy,
    and there’s also my experience watching ‘batman – dark knight rises’, based on ‘tale of two cities’/the french revolution, 1790, where prisons are opened and police disappear, you could see on the audience’s faces, they were all thinking the same thing; ‘this is our egypt revolution’
    … ‘we’ve been played’
