Egypt’s media incites against the Tunisian democracy


The Egyptian media, loyal to the regime, intensified their incitement to protests and revolution in Tunisia, in order to uproot what the media has described as the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood that controlled the government there. This incitement came after a session of questioning and accountability of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rached Ghannouchi, which lasted for 20 hours, during which a large number of opposition MPs attacked him.

The Egyptian anchor loyal to the Egyptian regime, Ahmed Moussa, said that on 14 June there will be a revolution in Tunisia against the rule of the Brotherhood, explaining that there are big protests. Ahmed Moussa, while presenting On My Responsibility show on Sada El-Balad TV, said that God is with you, the people of Tunisia, and that there will be a revolution against Rached Ghannouchi and the Renaissance Party on Sunday. Ahmed Moussa explained that the beginning of the gatherings started today, after obtaining approval from the Ministry of Interior, and confirmed that he is with the Tunisian people. Moussa extended invitations to the Tunisian people to go to the streets on June 14, to every street and neighbourhood in Tunisia to return Tunisia to its people.

Moussa said that the aim of these demonstrations is to uproot Ghannouchi and the terrorist Brotherhood. In parallel, the Salvation Front in Tunisia invites the Tunisian people to disembark on June 14 to dissolve the parliament. “Go down to besiege Ghannouchi and the Brotherhood, so that Tunisia can return to green without terrorists and brothers,” said Moussa. “Thank you to the Tunisian people who are planning to save Tunisia from the traitor Rached Ghannouchi and the terrorist Brotherhood group represented in the Brotherhood,” he added.

In the same context, an Egyptian journalist said on the UAE-funded Al-Ghad TV, that the noose is closing in on the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Tunisia (Rached Ghannouchi). She added that Ghannouchi may resort in the coming period to “assassinate a senior figure” or carry out terrorist operations to divert attention from his actions.

The Egyptian regime controls the media in Egypt, and no opposition voices are allowed to broadcast from within the country. Observers say that the Egyptian broadcasters are, in fact, speaking for what the Egyptian regime wants to say, and if they are attacking a country or a system, then this means that the Egyptian regime is attacking it.

The Egyptian attack on Tunisia coincides with a similar attack by the Emirati media. Egyptian and Emirati media support Tunisian calls for the dissolution of the Tunisian parliament, while Emirati media also point to the need to remove Tunisian President Kais Saied as well. The Egyptian media glorified the Tunisian Salvation Front’s calls for the 14 June protests.

“The June 14 mobility will change the history of Tunisia,” said the spokesman for the Tunisian Salvation Front, Fathi el-Warfali. “We are not represented by a speaker of parliament who has a relationship with a bloody group,” he added. He stressed that the demonstrators will not leave the squares until the dissolution of parliament, and are calling for early elections. He considered that this parliament has become a threat to the stability and security of Tunisia, especially Rached Ghannouchi, who is backed by the Turkish-Qatari axis. He explained that the goal of the movement is to eliminate corruption and stop support for terrorist militias and the bloody regime, and now the door is open to saving the country by participating in the upcoming political movement.

Observers say that the Egyptian regime is attacking the Tunisian system for a number of reasons, not including standing with the Tunisian people or supporting democracy.

The Egyptian-Tunisian tension is due to the fact that the Egyptian regime (alongside its allies in the Emirates and Saudi Arabia) do not like seeing an Arab democratic system that came through real, fair elections and enjoys popular support, as this is an embarrassment for them. Besides, the Egyptian regime views with concern the rapprochement between the Tunisian regime and Turkey, which the Egyptian regime considers a regional enemy.

Although the Tunisian regime confirmed that it was not aligned with any of the conflicting axes in the region, this was not enough for the Egyptian regime, because the regime would have liked to see a regime completely aligned with it. In addition, Tunisia has expressed sympathy with the Libyan government, which is internationally recognised, while the Egyptian regime supports the militias of General Khalifa Haftar. Observers warn of the Egyptian regime’s policy of not accepting neutral countries which has not won them allies, only pushed countries into the hostile axis.
