Posts Tagged Egypt
I intended to post some thoughts on this yesterday, but did not have the chance and it seems to have worked out ok because a new AP article was posted this morning that I will refer to. Yesterday morning, however, I had seen a story on Yahoo news (I know, it’s not the best news source). The article was about the newly elected President in Egypt, who is the Muslim Brotherhood guy, and how he had already stated that he would “update” the 30 year old peace treaty with Israel while, at the same time, build alliances with Iran to bring about more “balance” in the middle east. As if that isn’t disturbing enough, I went back to read over it again and see the source of it. I had intended to use it as my source for any thoughts I posted yesterday.
It wasn’t there. When I went back to find it, I could not find it on the main news page. I could not find it on the politics page. I did a basic search and could not find it. It may still be there somewhere, but it seems to have been buried and hidden. Either it’s there and I suddenly can’t read or the powers that be thought the article to be disturbing, as well . . . so much so that they made it far less obvious to the casual reader. Not to get all conspiracy theory on you, but I find it odd that something that significant would get moved so quickly when, for three days straight, I’ve been bombarded with Brittney Spears and Ashley Tisdale wearing the same stupid dress . . . which one wears it better? How about this . . .I don’t give a crap! Nor do I give a crap about how fat Jessica Simpson is, or who is marrying who, or anything else in celebrutopia. I want real news of real stuff going on in the real world.
Maybe my distrust and jadedness of politicians and the media lead me to assume the worst, but I think their track record is more telling (and, thus, justifies my skepticism). However, I can’t help but hear those fateful words of Han Solo ringing in my ears . . . . “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” Things aren’t right and the mainstream media refuses to face the facts and report them without brown-nosing in some lap-dog agenda. So, here’s what we have . . . .
On June 4, 2009, Obama was in Cairo and, after throwing America under the bus, indirectly declaring that we suck, stated:
No system of government can or should be imposed by one nation by any other . . . That does not lessen my commitment, however, to governments that reflect the will of the people. Each nation gives life to this principle in its own way, grounded in the traditions of its own people . . . Suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away . . . And we will welcome all elected, peaceful governments – provided they govern with respect for all their people . . . This last point is important because there are some who advocate for democracy only when they’re out of power; once in power, they are ruthless in suppressing the rights of others . . . you must respect the rights of minorities, and participate with a spirit of tolerance and compromise . . . Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance . . . People in every country should be free to choose and live their faith based upon the persuasion of the mind and the heart and the soul. This tolerance is essential for religion to thrive, but it’s being challenged in many different ways. (taken from this article at The Blaze)
It seems like this guy is in favor of law-abiding citizens to have freedom and to have a voice in the political process. It seems that, if he supports that kind of thing, he would reject the opposite. I’ve got news for you. Egypt’s elect, Morsi, is from the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood does not believe in anything that Obama claimed to support in that 2009 speech. In fact, the video below shows a Muslim Brotherhood leader speaking in massive support of Morsi. If you happen to watch GBTV, Glenn has used this. Watch what he says and notice that Morsi is in the background, nodding in complete agreement.
That doesn’t sound good at all.
So, what about the Associated Press article from this morning? It begins with, “The election of an Islamist president in Egypt is turning longstanding U.S. policy in the Mideast inside out: The Obama administration is relieved that the candidate representing three decades of close partnership with the United States lost.”
In case you don’t know much history, the same thing happened in Iran in 1979. There were uprisings and riots. There was much clamoring for new leadership/government . . . for the people, of course. That’s always the excuse, right? Who got in control? Islamists . . . you remember the Ayatollah Khomeini? That didn’t work out very well at all for the people. Today, they still have the Islamist theocracy in place. Ahmadinejad is an Islamist lunatic . . . not good for the people. Yet, why is our government saying they support Egypt’s decision . . . making the implication that it is “for the people”?
The article continues: “The United States is now set to embrace a religious-based former opposition leader who does not share many U.S. goals, perhaps including the 30-year peace with Israel upon which U.S. policy in the region is based. The embrace won’t be warm, and for the administration it will come with strings attached.”
Again, why are our moronic “leaders” ready to “embrace” this? What will these “strings” be? I’m pretty sure I’m not interested . . . I’d bet they won’t be in the best interest of America or freedom! Who is paying attention to this?
According to the article, U.S. officials said, “the freedom of the election is more important than who won it.”
Wow. Are these people THAT stupid . . . wait, how silly of me . . . yes, yes they are.
Then, in the same article and from the always idiotic White House press secretary, Jay Carney, we get this nugget, “We judge individuals and parties that are elected in a democratic process by their actions, not by their religious affiliation.”
Mr. Carney, what about when the religious group is very outspoken about how its demonic religious beliefs lead them to do very evil actions and oppressions against humanity . . . all in the name of “Allah”?
This is all very wrong and does not bode well for Israel or us. Suffice it to say, the Muslim Brotherhood is working on rebuilding the caliphate – they want to rule the world under sharia law. It is their stated goal and Egypt is a big part in that. Things are happening that are not good. I don’t know exactly what’s happening nor do I know when anything significant will happen. I just know my gut is telling me this is all wrong and bad. Pay attention to what’s going on, everyone. This doesn’t even include the near war tensions between Syria and Turkey. Pay attention and be ready. Ultimately, though, search your heart. Where do you stand with the Lord? Are you with Him or against Him? How about America and her principles of freedom? For or against? Are you ready to take a hard stand for what is right? Will you stand? The time is now. Nothing may happen for a long time, but we need to stand for what’s right, NOW.
Before standing, please kneel. Pray. Pray for this country, but pray for all of the mess in the middle east, too. Pray for Israel’s protection and for us to get some real leadership that will back them up and stand with them as most American citizens do.
I don’t know what to make of all of this stuff. I just know that it doesn’t look good on several fronts. We must pray and stand on Truth. Our pathetic administration can say what they want but I know one thing . . .
Han Solo has never been more right.
