A senior Egyptian politician called for devising an Arab plan under the leadership of Cairo to confront the Israeli plots in the region in cooperation with Iran’s anti-Zionist plan, specially after the recent popular uprisings toppled Zionist regime’s allies in the region.
Commenting on ways of defusing the Zionist regime of Israel’s conspiracies in the region, Secretary-General of Egypt’s Kerama party Maher al-Makhlouf said a regional front should be established against Israel and its plots.
“In this context, we hope that a front is set up for confronting the Zionist plot because no Arab plan has been presented yet and no plan can be presented for the Arab World without Egypt’s leadership,” Makhlouf told FNA on Sunday.
“Egypt should lead an Arab plan against Zionists’ plot in the region in cooperation with Iranian and Turkish plans,” the politician underscored.
Political analysts believe that Zionists are fearful of the ongoing Islamic Awakening in the region since the movement has toppled Israel’s allies, such as Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak, and empowered Islamists who follow Iran’s path in their foreign policies.
Since the start of 2011, the region has witnessed a growing wave of popular protests resulted from the people’s growing awareness and vigilance.
Tunisia saw the overthrow of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in a popular revolution in January, which was soon followed by a revolution which toppled Hosni Mubarak in Egypt in February.
Libya was the third country touched by the Islamic Awakening. Libyans also embraced victory after months of bloody campaign against the country’s dictator, Muammar al-Qaddafi.
Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Yemen have since been the scene of protests against their totalitarian rulers, who have resorted to brutal crackdown on demonstrations to silence their critics.
In Yemen, although the people have toppled the dictator and elected a president, the revolution still continues as allies and family members of the former dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh, still hold key posts in the country and have not been brought to justice.
