Op-Ed: Who Still Has His Head in the Sand on the Arab Spring?
Arutz Sheva - IsraelNationalNews ^ | 12/13/11

Posted on 12/13/2011 5:54:57 PM PST by SmithL

The true identity of the Islamic forces is revealing itself to the large audience of the Western world, like in a mystery movie.

Who can now claim not to understand, not to know?

As its first revolutionary sign, Tunisia has issued a democratic constitution draft envisaging a ban for whoever has contacts and establishes relations with Israel; after their long victorious struggle, the Libyan revolutionaries have announced, as a great result of that bloodshed, that sharia would be coming and polygamy would be reinstated; the reformist Morocco has ben the stage of another Islamist victory; in Yemen, El Qaeda is prowling for power; in Egypt – and this is the worst news – not only have the Muslim Brothers won with about 47% of the votes, but they are immediately followed, with as much as 20% of the votes, by the Salaphites of the Nour party, always referred to by the West as an irrelevant group of crazy extremists.

In this connection, it is certainly not by chance that the “moderate”, indeed extremely “moderate” Mahmoud Abbas - the pet of all European governments and of Mrs. Clinton – is finalizing an alliance with Hamas.

Is this so bad? Yes, it’s very bad. But the goals are so heterogeneous that they can dramatically change – and for the better – the whole European and American policy-making. For decades we have closed our eyes and we had slipped into rem sleep when the so-called Arab Spring revolutions erupted.

We hadn’t even woken up when Iran, Syria, the Hizbullah, Hamas, that is the whole anti-western axis, rejoiced and immediately supported the insurgents. Ahmadinejad’s crest fell only when his best friend Assad was attacked by his people, mostly led by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Unfortunately, the MSM is protecting the Democratic administration and their ridiculous policies.

Not very many people know what has happened in the Middle East.

A vast majority of the population still have their heads in the sand.

"The People Who Don't Pay Attention" are the "*some* of the people who are fooled *all* of the time." The MSM is purposely manipulating them. They are voting based on misinformation. They are destroying our country.

We need to fight the MSM and break their hold on The People Who Don't Pay Attention. It will take courage because they will unfairly and sometimes savagely and falsely attack those who speak out against them.

The Republican establishment if rife with muslim connections and influence.

There’s a reason why G W Bush had a koran added to the White House library.

Look up Abdul Rahman Al-Amoudi just for starters.

Don't doubt it.

But this 'Arab Spring' BS has been a democrat (far left, specifically)/US News media show.

While many in the GOP may be thick as thieves with the Royal Saudi family etc I don't think many carry a brief for the Muslim Brotherhood.
