CODEPINK Co-founder Medea Benjamin Detained, Brutally Attacked and Deported from Egypt en route to Gaza with International Delegation of Women

 

On the night of March 3, 2014, co-founder of the peace group CODEPINK Medea Benjamin was on her way to Egypt to join an international delegation of women going to Gaza when she was detained by border police in the Cairo airport, held overnight in a cell, and then brutally tackled (her arm badly injured), handcuffed, and deported to Turkey. During her time in the detention cell she had access to a cell phone, from which she contacted colleagues at CODEPINK about the poor conditions of the cell and chronicled her ordeal via Twitter. When the Egyptian police removed her from the detention center, they used such excessive force she sustained a fracture and torn ligament in her shoulder.

 

Calling from Istanbul, Benjamin gave the following statement: “I was brutally assaulted by Egyptian police, who never said what I was being accused of. When the authorities came into the cell to deport me, two men threw me to the ground, stomped on my back, pulled my shoulder out of its socket and handcuffed me so that my injured arm was twisted around and my wrists began to bleed. I was then forced to sit between the two men who attacked me on the plane ride from Cairo to Istanbul, and I was (and still am) in terrible pain the whole time.” Doctors in the Cairo airport said she was not fit to travel because of her injury, but the authorities forced her to board anyways.

 

She is currently in Istanbul, Turkey, receiving medical attention at a hospital before she returns to the US. It is still unclear why the Egyptians deported her. Medea’s colleagues at CODEPINK are appalled by the unnecessary use of force by Egyptian authorities.

 

In response to a call from the women of Gaza, Benjamin was traveling through Egypt to be a part of the CODEPINK contingent of an international coalition of 100 women traveling to Gaza to witness the hardships facing the 1.7 million residents, deliver humanitarian aid, and call attention to the need for a longer-term strategy to achieve peace and justice for Palestinians.

    Hmmm

    The false flag attack by Israeli intelligence/US traitors on 9-11 was of course the necessary “Pearl Harbor type event” that US dual citizen israeli Zionists had openly demanded in the months prior to Israel’s attack on the WTC.This is just further proof (though none is needed at this point) of the true purpose of Israel ordering the US to attack and destroy virtually every country in the region (Saudis excluded as they are already under Israeli/US control) Not a single country the US has destroyed has a duly elected democratic government. Every single country the US attacked is in far worse condition today. And every country the US has attacked was anti-Israeli prior to the attacks. And every country (despite some negative PR out of Iraq) is now pro Israeli. And to date the ONLY country in the world that has benefited from the trillions of dollars spent, the millions people killed and entire countries destroyed is Israel. Not a single democracy has immerged from 12 years of US invasion and destruction. And it is extremely important to note that the only countries that have tried to establish democratic rule (Palestine and Egypt) have had their duly elected government removed by force of arms by the US and Israel.

    And what has Israel been doing during the “Ukraine Crisis”? Launching attacks in GAZA, Southern Jordon, and Syria from the Golan.They are busy removing the remaining Palestinians that live in the Jordon Valley. The last remaining large open area of land not stolen by Israel in Palestinian. And of course the Boycott which was finally getting international press coverage has vanished from the pages of the Western Media completely. In fact none of the military actions by Israel are getting any MSM press time in the US.

    .
    Talk about perfect timing for the “Ukraine Crisis” to happen. It couldn’t have been more perfectly timed if it was intentionally carried out by the US and Israel. You don’t suppose Israel planned this “crisis” as a cover for their illegal military invasion of Jordon, Syria and Palestine? Or is it merely a coincidence that the “leaders” of the violent opposition in the Ukraine were lead by Israeli operatives and bankrolled by the US?
