Barack Obama’s Arab Spring is being celebrated in a big way in Egypt as the former American ally and 30 year peace partner of Israel becomes a full-fledged Islamic theocracy and property of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood. “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet,” said Brotherhood founder al-Banna, a devout believer in the role of Islamic Jihad as the proper means of carrying out “…the precepts of the Qur’an.”
And there could be no better guy to advance that Brotherhood agenda of world domination than Mohammed Morsi, longtime Brotherhood member and Egypt’s newly elected president by virtue of the U.S. State Department-led overthrow of the America-supporting Hosni Mubarak. Morsi has made his own allegiance to the precepts of Islamic rule clear enough even for a mainstream American media that refuses to report it.
During a May campaign speech to the people of Egypt, Morsi said:
The shari’a, then the shari’a, and finally, the shari’a. Rejoice and rest assured that [the Egyptian] people will not accept a [constitutional] text that does not reflect the true meaning of the Islamic shari’a as a text to be implemented and as a platform. The people will not agree to anything else.
Morsi was not posturing for Egyptian voters, and he obviously had little concern for the way his words might be received by an American audience. As his then-political benefactor, Obama must have hoped Morsi might play the role of a moderately secular candidate who would keep at bay the threat of radical Islam at LEAST for American television cameras and through Barack’s November bid for re-election! After all, didn’t the Muslim Brotherhood owe that small subterfuge to Obama for having so graciously given them Egypt?
But Mohammed Morsi is not a secularist, nor will he bow to the campaign wishes of Barack Obama. In fact, since winning the fraud-enhanced June election, Morsi has vowed to turn Egypt into an Islamic theocracy, free jailed terrorists, and tear up the 3-decade peace treaty with Israel. He is also demanding that Obama free Omar Abdel-Rahman, the blind sheik sentenced to life for his part in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
When Egypt’s Muslim thugs began climbing the walls into American Embassy grounds in Cairo, Morsi immediately informed Obama that “the Prophet ‘is a red line for all Muslims, and we refuse any attack.’” Though faced with a situation that could threaten his bid for re-election should he be made to look impotent by the man his Administration had literally placed in Egypt’s highest office, Obama’s telephone plea that Morsi increase protection for Embassy workers was answered with a demand that Obama “…take dissuasive measures against those trying to demolish relations with the US.” It was in response to this “suggestion” from the Egyptian president that Barack Obama asked YouTube to banish the “Innocence of Muslims” film from its site. The filmmaker was picked up at his California home by FBI agents for a midnight chat, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs asked Pastor Terry Jones to withdraw any support he might have given the film production. It seems 1st Amendment rights give way with ease when our president is threatened with electoral extinction by the Muslim Brotherhood.
