Dr. Pipes

I wanted to bring to your attention that there are many Egyptians that believe that Tantawi and the other members of SCAF and Amn al-Dawla already have a deal with the Muslim brotherhood to get a blanket pardon from criminal prosecution for crimes committed against the many Egyptains that we killed or injured in the past year

Now the same sources believe that Tantawi and SCAF and the leaders of Amn al-Dawla seem to be worried that the NGO's (be it American or German that were recently closed and thier computers confiscated and the members as in the case of Sam Lahood are not allowed to leave Egypt) are building the legal case against Tantawi and the memebers of SCAF and those in charge of Amn al-Dawla and then will take the evidence to the International Court at the Hague where the case could end

Is this true or not? I really do not know but it makes one wonder as Tantawi seems to live in the 1950's and he does not seem to realize that even if he receives a pardon from al-Ikhwan this would not stop the International Court at the Hague from proceeding with investigating the charges but this would only happen if there is really a legal case

Submitting....
