The Arab World Explodes

So, yes – what we are witnessing is Muslim against Muslim, Arab against Arab.  But it has absolutely nothing to do with any supposed yearning in Arab hearts for Western-style “democracy”!  It is all about power; about removing Muslim governments considered favourable to “the Great Satan”, America, and replacing them with even more fanatical Muslim governments. This was admitted by the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan, Hammam Saeed, who warned that what was happening in Egypt would spread across the Middle East until leaders allied to the United States were toppled! He said: “The Americans and Obama must be losing sleep over the popular revolt in Egypt.  Now, Obama must understand that the people have woken up and are ready to unseat the tyrant leaders who remained in power because of U.S. backing.”[8] Well, actually, Obama will not be losing too much sleep over it at all, given his extremely pro-Islamic stance.  Such statements are just for public consumption: men like Saeed know very well that in Obama they have an ally.  But he must be made to look as if he is against them, so as not to alert people to what is really going on behind the scenes. The Obama Administration has a very different, far more radical agenda in the Middle East than its predecessors did – and it doesn’t involve propping up those regimes viewed as more “moderate” and kinder to Israel.  The Muslim Brotherhood is very anti-Western.  And yet, the Obama White House was actually championing the Egyptian protests, with arch-Socialist Hillary Clinton, the U.S. Secretary of State, calling for a “transition to democratic rule” in Egypt, even though it well knows that the Muslim Brotherhood is the main opposition and will almost certainly take power! The Muslim Brotherhood is being portrayed, by smokescreen creators in the West, as a moderate, non-violent organisation that can be trusted.  But is it really non-violent and moderate?  Far from it!  In November 2010, Muhammad Badi, supreme guide of the Brotherhood, delivered a sermon with the title: “How Islam Confronts the Oppression and Tyranny.”  In it he declared: “Resistance is the only solution.  The United States cannot impose an agreement upon the Palestinians, despite all the power at its disposal.  [Today] it is withdrawing from Iraq, defeated and wounded, and is also on the verge of withdrawing from Afghanistan because it has been defeated by Islamist warriors.”  And he added that the U.S. is easy to defeat through violence, because it is “experiencing the beginning of its end and is heading towards its demise.”[9] Hmmm…these really sound like the words of a peaceful, non-violent, moderate Muslim, don’t they?  Oh, and incidentally, he was very right about one thing: America, morally rotten from within, is a nation in decline.  Muslims have certainly got that right. But the U.S. sends the deliberately deceptive message that there’s nothing to fear from these Islamics.  Dana Perino, former spokeswoman for President Bush, said: “Don’t be afraid of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  This has nothing to do with religion.”[10] What?  It has everything to do with religion!  A religion described in the Bible as “smoke out of the [bottomless] pit” (Rev. 9:2). Bruce Reidel, former CIA analyst and advisor to Obama, wrote: “The Egyptian Brotherhood renounced violence years ago…its relative moderation has made it the target of extreme vilification by more radical Islamists.”[11] This sounds so like what the Americans used to say about South Africa’s ANC – that it was a somewhat moderate organisation, far better than more “radical” organisations, which therefore could be trusted.  Yes, and look how that turned out. The Egyptian government suspected that elements of the Egyptian protests, in particular political aspects, were being co-ordinated with the U.S. State Department!  A senior Egyptian diplomat said Mubarak’s government suspected the U.S. had been aiding protest planning by one Mohamed el Baradei, one of the main opposition leaders, seen as an ally of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is not at all surprising or out of character for America to be deeply involved.  But how sad that the country still incorrectly viewed as the “leader of the free world” is up to its neck in supporting Red and Islamic terror organisations the world over! American involvement in Egypt’s affairs has caused rage among many Egyptians, voiced by various Egyptian writers.  For example, Egyptian journalist Anwar al-Hawari wrote: “Obama discusses Egypt’s affairs out of an imperialistic mentality.  I don’t know who authorized him to speak in my name as an Egyptian citizen.  Tell me, Obama, what are your country’s real interests in what is happening in Egypt right now?  What is your role in instigating these events?  Tell me, what is your agenda?”  Very good questions, which Americans should be asking as well.  And: “You, Obama, want my country to share the fate you have arranged for Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan.”  Yes, true.  Others voiced similar sentiments.  Muhammad Ali Ibrahim, editor of an Egyptian government daily, wrote: “Does Washington [mean to] overlook 85 million Egyptians and deal directly with the [person] it trusts, without considering the Egyptians?…. Who authorized America to try to shape Egypt’s future after Mubarak?…. Ultimately, what America wants is for Egypt to be in the state of political vacuum…. What America wants is for Egypt to become a country without independent decision, [subject to] the decision of the American administration – a proxy state.”[12] Again, very true.
