An Islamic government overthrow leading to freedom?

Only the naive would ever imagine it.

"Only the naive would ever imagine it."

I think what they mean is that prior to the Arab Spring there were many people in Egypt that dreamed of democracy and when Mubaric was suddenly gone and elections were being held for the first time in many many years, they were so optimistic.

I was in Egypt last fall, and our guide, a Coptic Christian, was just bubbling over with joy and hope, proudly pointing out all the campaign posters and banners hanging everywhere you looked in the streets, and saying how wonderful Democracy was going to be.

It was the week after we left that things started falling apart and the Muslim faction started showing so much force and the violence got bad.

““We can see how the dream of the Islamic Caliphate is being realized,.....””

... to think that Obama had a very significant hand in it right down to having his private war, with American and NATO forces in Libya to consolidate the caliphate. Allah akbar. all is possible now that we are the largest muslim nation.

Gotta love the media and Obama.
If that doesnt warm your heart, I don’t know what will.
