Egypt has fallen; it’s fallen from a dictator into military rule. On the one hand, we say “hooray, the dictator is out!”; on the other hand, we say “good heavens, the military has taken control!”; the strong arm of a dictator or the strong arm of the military?
For the good people of Egypt, this is jumping from the frying pan, into the fire. Neither one a rosy picture.
Recently, the National Intelligence Director said that the “Muslim Brotherhood”, a group working to oust Mubarak, was a “largely secular group…”
Wait! What did he just say?? “secular”?? Are you kidding me?? Look again at the NAME of the group…MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.
That’s like saying Al Capone only wanted to help little old ladies cross the street and was completely misunderstood.
This man, James Clapper, should be fired.
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 to RESTORE Islamic supremacy and to work toward implementation of sharia law under a Khalifah, or Caliphate.
A Caliphate is rule under a Caliph, an Islamic leader who claims his succession from Muhammad. In other words, government by theocratic rule; under Islam.
Freedom of Religion? None. Freedom for women? None. Freedom to be gay? None. Freedom to protest your government? None.
Egypt is the only country in the Middle East, with a peace treaty with Israel; if it becomes a Caliphate, the treaty will fail, and Israel will be alone in the region; a very tiny alone, with gigantic powerhouses of hate for neighbors.
Today the military appointed a fundamentalist Islamic judge to help sort things out.
Have a read, Pamela Gellar at Atlas Shrugs spells it all out quite well.
Things are going to get ugly.
