(But It Has Nothing to Do with Democracy…)

by Shaun Willcock In January 2011, protests erupted in Tunisia and quickly spread to other Arab countries, and the world watched amazed as the streets of these countries’ capital cities filled with hundreds of thousands of angry, chanting, screaming protesters, calling for their governments to step down or be overthrown.  And how did the liberal media report these riots?  As “protests for democracy”!  As “popular uprisings”!  And this brazen media smokescreen has been accepted as the truth, by most of the world! Two questions for those who have swallowed the bait: Since when has the Muslim world ever been interested in “democracy” and “human rights”, those pet ideologies of the secularised West?  Answer: Never!  Not yesterday, not today, and it will not be interested tomorrow.  For example, according to the statistics, half of all Egyptians support the terrorist organisation Hamas, 30% support the terrorist organisation Hezbollah, 20% express support for Al-Qaeda, 95% want a stronger Islamic influence in their politics, and some 75% said they would support elements of Shariah law, including the death penalty for those who leave the Islamic religion.[1] So any foolish notion that what is happening in the Middle East is some kind of “pro-democracy uprising” should be dumped immediately.  It’s not.  This is Western media spin, not reality in the Islamic Middle East. And: do such massive, widespread uprisings just happen, spontaneously? Answer: No!  The uprisings of the French Revolution were not spontaneous, nor were those of the Bolshevik Revolution, nor those of 1989/1990 in the former Soviet Union and the Communist eastern-bloc countries.  When one sees such riots breaking out virtually simultaneously in many countries, one can be sure there’s nothing spontaneous about them.  These massive seismic shifts do not just “happen”.  They are made to happen. So what is going on?  What is happening in the Islamic Middle East?  In a word: revolution.  Not a “democratic revolution” as the liberal Western media has sold it to the world, but an Islamic revolution, orchestrated behind the scenes by fanatics bent on taking power – yes, even from their fellow Muslims. Ask yourself: who stands to gain the most from these riots?  No doubt about it: vicious Islamic organisations, such as Al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and others.  They are the ones who have been stirring the pot behind the scenes, orchestrating the eruptions of hundreds of thousands into the streets.  Nothing spontaneous about it, and it’s not from any desire for “democracy” either. What is occurring is like an action replay of what occurred when the Carter Administration backed the violent revolution which brought the evil Ayatollah to power in Iran in 1979.  When Iran fell, this was the first step in the modern radical Islamic expansionist agenda.  The parallels are so obvious and striking that some Muslim religious leaders have called the Egyptian riots an extension of the 1979 revolution!  For example, Iranian religious leader, Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, said: “Thirty-one years after the victory of the Islamic Republic [of Iran], we are faced with the obvious fact that these movements are the aftershocks of the Islamic Revolution.  The fate of those who challenge [our] religion is destruction.”  And he certainly showed up the lie that these protests are pro-democracy riots when he added: “They [the media and government leaders] want to highlight the labour, liberal and democratic issues, but the most important issue, which is the religious streak of these protests, [is] being denied.”[2] There you have it, straight out of the horse’s mouth!  This is a religious Islamic uprising, orchestrated and deliberate.
