On Monday deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was flown from his prison to stand trial for high treason and other suspected crimes. During course of this trial, alliances and connections could be revealed that incriminate foreign powers, in particular the US, that publicly claim to keep their hands clean of terrorist activity.
As Dr. Ashraf Ramelah, president of the Egyptian Christian movement Voice of the Copts, noted in a press statement:
"In a country where no regulation or law exists to govern taping of conversations...judges dismissed by Morsi and now reinstated will be presented with tape recordings of Morsi’s discussions with Aymen Al Zawahiri of Al Qaeda."
This damning evidence will likely demonstrate that Morsi collaborated with Al Qaeda, and "if found guilty of conspiring with foreign entities against the welfare of the Egyptian state, Morsi will be assigned the death penalty and, since he is non-military, sentenced to hang," according to Ramelah.
But who else could the trial uncover as co-conspirators?
"Potentially the US administration, the European Union...and others," warned Ramelah. "With the expected court examination of tape recordings and documents, Morsi’s backers and supporters will be exposed unless back room deals are brokered in advance."
Ramelah said one of the suspicions the evidence could confirm is that the Obama Administration gave $8 billion to the Muslim Brotherhood to establish a Hamas presence in Sinai.
Another known incident the court will surely focus on is the recent delegation of US Senators who tried to pressure Egypt's interim government into releasing Morsi and reinstalling him as president.
Egyptians initially had nothing but appreciation for America's backing of their pro-democracy revolution that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak. But when Obama then turned around and "aided the Muslim Brotherhood rise to power," said Ramelah, the US began to be viewed as a foreign conspirator against the interests of Egyptians.
