Overview of the intolerant 'infidels Winter' (AKA Arab Spring)

Posted on 05/25/2012 12:41:09 PM PDT by Milagros

The so-called 'Arab Spring' (2011-2012) - More Islamization = more intolerance for the 'other.' Ethnic and religious gaps widen.

The Intolerant Arab Spring,[1] has been dubbed the Christian Winter.[2][3][4] The Arab Spring is turning out to be not only a winter for women, but also a winter for Christians.[5]

As scholar wrote, in an article titled 'Minorities and the Arab Spring: The great divide,' that "the two main tenets of these constitutions - Arab unity as a goal and Islam as state religion, did not leave much hope to non-Arab and non-Muslim minorities."[6] Even a pro-Arabist liberal writer wrote that the "Arab Spring has washed the region's appalling racism out of the news." Focusing on widespread racism in the Arab world, including blacks, Asian "maids" who are in fact slaves.[7]

Venomous Anti-Semitism, only grew with Islamists taking hold in the "Arab Spring." For example, a Muslim Brotherhood rally called to 'kill all Jews;'[8] there was a shocking massive rally under a banner "one nation under a new Hololcaust" in on a sports field in Cairo;[9] a Yemenite Jewish leader was stabbed to death.[10]

Rights group decried: "Minorities at risk following Arab Spring." Such as blacks, Christians in Syrian and in Egypt, al-Akhdam indigenous protesting against racism in Yemen, and the gaps between Sunni and Shia, Muslims and non-Muslims, Arabs and non-Arabs.[11]
