In Turkish language, the word “Mısır” means both Egypt and Corn. So an exploded “Mısır” means wheather popcorn or punctured Egypt. The title of this article should not remind one of the popcorn that we prepare on the stove in cold winter days of Turkey. Macron hosted Egyptian President Abdulfettah As-Sisi. Sarkozy also hosted Gaddafi…
Egyptian President Abdulfettah Es-Sisi and Emmanuel Macron posed very candidly in the garden of Elize Palace… Let’s remember, Macron’s predecessor, Sarkozy, attended a similar ceremony with Gaddafi. Even Muammar Gaddafi had set up that famous bedouin tent in the garden of Elize Palace. (Later, it turned out that this tent building price was somehow transferred to Sarkozy as an election fee…) anyways. It was Sarkozy who started the first air raid in the Libyan sky for the destruction of Gaddafi! I mean, Sisi, just to get Turkey to the opposition and animosity fathoms throws very dangerous waters. The main reason for his contact with Macron is the hydrocarbon reserves in the Eastern Mediterranean and other issues related to them… Sisi, who has been working with Greece and the Greek Cypriot Administration on this issue for a long time, is now trying to further cooperation with Macron for reinforcement purposes. Macron is already very enthusiastic about this. France ranks first as an arms supplier country for Egypt.
Reconnaissance and surveillance vehicles, warships, fighter jets etc. The point is very oily-honey and also important. Egypt has the largest population among Arab countries… Consistent with this, he feeds a large army. However, to what extent does the huge army it nurtures protect Egypt’s national interests? Wars with Israel since 1948 have always resulted in losses, except for the partial success in the 1973 Ramadan War!
The threat and danger for Egypt is not only Israel. It has many internal and external problems… There is a great unrest inside that has been going on for years and is being suppressed with an iron fist. In fact, several Human Rights organizations led by Amnesty International have given a prior warning to Macron. They told Sisi to put pressure on human rights violations… If Kelin had ointment, it would last on its own! Currently, France is in bad mood with a bill to restrict press freedom. Some French people were embarrassed by the flamboyant welcoming ceremony to Sisi, who in the last seven years blocked thousands of activists, journalists and lawyers trying to defend their rights, sent dozens of people to the death row without even a proper trial… Do they take pride in Macron himself, who increasingly implements repressive policies against human rights and freedoms? … It is certain that neither Sisi nor Macron’s main issue is human rights and freedoms. Staying in power for Sisi and being elected a second time for Macron comes first of all… Especially for Sisi, the situation is not at all pleasant. The same Sisi, who took very wrong steps regarding the rights and interests of Egypt in the Eastern Mediterranean, has embarked on much more serious adventures in the Red Sea. Due to the geopolitical and geostrategic realities, with Israel, which will never be a friend of Egypt, the United Arab Emirates is trying to form a triple trivet with dollar support. The main objectives of the prevention and cessation of Turkey’s influence in Africa and the Red Sea… Israel’s “existential” in the camps take place against Turkey understandable reasons. So, what are the reasons that pushed Egypt to such behavior? And even with what motives the UAE is so hostile to the Turks. More precisely, under the people’s seat, it’s everywhere in an attempt against Turkey? .. Certainly there to answer all of these questions and an explanation… BAE has long enmity against Turkey in a very open and arrogant. This situation is undoubtedly monitored very carefully and everything is noted. Actually, I wonder where the UAE, who got on the boat of Israel, will hit! But the actual situation Egypt fell into is exemplary. What are Israel’s behind-the-scenes activities in the flow of the waters of the River Nile that will severely strain Egypt in the medium and long term? Could Egypt not know this? Who is the driving force behind the Renaissance (Nahda) Dam that Ethiopia is building? According to the 1959 Agreement, Egypt still uses 66 percent of the Nile waters and Sudan 22 percent. The remaining 12 percent is evaporating because of the hot climate… For Egypt, the Nil means life. 97 percent of the population lives and can live on the banks of the Nile. He says to Ethiopia: Fill the Nahda Dam in 20 years. Thus, there is no big deficiency in the water that comes to us. Ethiopia says that I will fill it in 10 years, not 20… And now Addisababa is busy with the sudden rebellion in Tigray Autonomous Region. As the fingers point to Egypt!.. Let’s see how Ethiopia, which built the huge dam, will act with the encouragement and support of the USA and Israel Popcorn pops are spread over a very large area!
