Skip to comments.Egypt Rushes Toward Sharia and War
Posted on 05/31/2011 8:30:58 AM PDT by opentalk
How hopelessly at odds with Americas best interests is Barack Obama? Less than two weeks ago he declared his support for political and economic reform in the Middle East, warmly endorsing the Arab Spring uprisings there. Then Sunday, Muslim Brotherhood Sheikh Hazem Abu Ismail announced his candidacy for the presidency of Egypt, promising to transform Egypt into an Islamic state and go to war with Israel. Reform that would indeed be, but not the kind any American president should be applauding.
Maybe Obama is still listening to his ruinously incompetent Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, who at the height of the Egyptian uprising characterized the Muslim Brotherhood as largely secular. Secular theyre not, but theyre certainly influential, and Obama knows it: he specifically requested that Muslim Brotherhood representatives attend his speech in Cairo in June 2009.
Speaking in a mosque on Saturday, Abu Ismail said that he was confident of victory -- precisely because, unlike the other candidates, he presented a clear call to institute Islamic law in Egypt.
...Abu Ismail was sure all Egyptians would love his pro-Sharia platform: If I could apply sharia in Egypt, all people, including non-Muslims, would applaud me four years later. He also promised to go to war with Israel: The Camp David peace treaty is insulting to the Egyptian people, so it must be canceled, and I will do my best to convince people to cancel it.
...But now it appears that peace with Israel is no longer such a high priority. And it is no wonder that Abu Ismail thinks ripping up the Camp David accords is a winning issue. Last week the Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood leader Rachid Ghannouchi predicted that the Arab Spring would lead to the destruction of Israel.

a dog barks, a fish swims, a muslim wants to eliminate jews....nothing new here. why would anyone expect obama to act differently than he has?
Ozero is not “any American President”..
Wow. Nobody saw this coming.
Israel will kick their butts again. This time even worse I’m betting.
Few tons of TNT and the Aswan Highdam is toast, and so is the rest of the country.
Egypt cannot afford to fight wars with anyone anymore.
Carter may have radicalized one islamic country....Obama will radicalize the rest of them!
and obama just promised them billions...
And Obama is pushing to give these people $20 billion for “democratization” with no accountability as to how they spend it.
from Obama's anti-Israel speech should surpise no one thread
The citizens of the United States elected a President who attended a strict Muslim madrassa (parochial school) for two years. Our current Commander-in Chief, while an impressionable young boy between 6 and 10 years old, bowed down toward Mecca five times a day while praying to Allah. He studied the Koran, including Sura 7:166, Sura 2:65, and Sura 5:60 and its repeated calls for the transformation of Jews into apes and swine.
Barry Soetoro was indoctrinated, as were millions of young Muslim boys, in the same anti-Semitism that has always been taught in the Muslim madrassa's for the past thousand years.
Let's be very clear, Barry Obama surrounds himself with anti-Semitic advisors who relish the elimination of the Jewish state, attended a church for 20 years where the clergy spewed anti-Semitic hate, and now bows, scrapes and sends millions of US taxpayer dollars to Muslim countries and terrorist groups such as Hamas, who are the most lethal anti-Semites on the planet.
I heard a government official from Israel talk about Obama being a Muslim. He said the whole world knows this. Only America denies it.
I see a rug and a broom in this story’s future.
Israel will kick their butts again ...... until Israel runs out of the materiel needed to fight and win a major war.
Then, as every major Arab-Israeli War has demonstrated (the most recent Lebanon and Gaza Strip actions were not major wars), Israel will need timely and massive logistics support from the U.S. to survive.
The Yom Kippur War and the Airlift That Saved Israel ..... The Two O'Clock War is a fast-paced, minute-by-minute account of that fateful October when Israel was almost lost, a monumental American airlift saved her ....
The approval of such an airlift will now be in the hands of the cowardly and incompetent Commander-in-Chief that took 16 hours to approve the Osama bin Ladin raid that that been practiced to the last detail and needed only definitive confirmation of Osama bin Ladin's presence and Obama's decision.
As long as Barack Obama sits in the White House, Israel is in very grave danger.
Saw a disturbing report on French TV last night - all about the blasphemy charges accruing against Christians in Pakistan. Basically any muslim can (and does) accuse any Christian of blasphemy in Pakistan.
The Pakistan “street” picks up the gauntlet and starts running around like the crazed monsters that they are and starts looking for heads to cut off on the theory that their moon god must be appeased.
There are apparently a few voices of reason and moderation in Pakistan but they are sadly outnumbered.
The current cause celebre is “Asie Bibi” (I think is the name but maybe in English it would be “Asia Bibi” not sure) a young Christian girl who argued with two muslims over - get this - a glass of water while working in the fields. Now the whole country (just about) wants Asie, her family and any govt. official not in favor of death for infidels - DEAD.
These “people” are monsters.
Anyone got Bill Kristol’s email addy? I’ve been waiting for Egypt to fall apart so I can rub his smug little neocon nose in it.
.....but, but, but I thought the media said that all that Egyptian’s wanted was freedom and democracy............
It is as*ine to push the US to borrow more money from China, or print it, so we can spend it on foreign counties. Egypt already has an army funded by us, that may now be in the hands of Muslim Brotherhood. There is something in the Koran about infidels paying a tax to Muslims.
Freedom is slavery
You forgot the sarcasm tag...
