A handout picture released by the Egyptian presidency shows Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi (C) shaking hands with an Egyptian soldier who was wounded in an attack in Sinai during a visit to soldiers at a hospital in Cairo on August 7, 2012.
Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi’s recent dismissal of the North African country’s top military leaders, points in the direction of combating ‘false flag Zionist terrorism,’ says an analyst.
In an article published on Press TV website on Thursday, Dr. Kevin Barrett asks if Egypt’s newly-elected President Morsi will “join in an eventual regional alliance against Zionist-assisted false flag terror?”
He then responds, “By firing some of Egypt's leading Mossad-assisted false flag terrorists last Sunday, he may have taken a significant step in that direction."
“Last Sunday, President Morsi fired the chiefs of Egypt's navy, air force, and air defense forces, along with the defense minister and army chief of staff. All of the fired military leaders were closely associated with the defunct Mubarak regime,” Barrett wrote, adding that, “in public, President Morsi claimed that he was firing the military officials for incompetence.”
The American analyst compared Morsi’s move to that of former US President John F. Kennedy who also cited “incompetence” as his excuse for firing CIA director, Allan Dulles, while the real reason was that the CIA was trying to persuade him into invading Cuba.
“President Morsi may not yet be telling the whole truth about what really happened in Sinai and why he really fired his military leadership,” Barret asserted.
“Egypt's top military officials, especially those closest to Mubarak, were notorious for their collaboration with Israel's Mossad in arranging false flag terror attacks designed to be blamed on “radical Muslims." The attack in the Sinai, which killed sixteen Egyptian border guards, "may have been such a false flag,” he explained.
In the case of the Sinai attack, only Israel could have benefited from the attack, as the Zionist entity wanted to punish Egypt for its decision to open up its borders with Gaza.
Barret thus quoted Israel's Ha’aretz correspondent Akiva Eldar who said of the Sinai attack, “The Israelis are in a way quite happy that the Egyptians have learnt their lesson that they have to listen to us, and have had to pay the price.”
He maintained that although Salafi jihadists were publicly thought to be responsible for the attack, its “extreme professionalism” leads one to believe that “it must have had a state sponsor.”
“The Mubarak cronies running Egypt's military were notorious for their collaboration with Israel in similar false flag operations,” Barret concluded.
