What Now Egypt?

What has taken place in Egypt over the last two weeks is stunning in scope. Yes, a dictator was over thrown and yes the people hopefully got what they wanted, a chance at self determination. The next question thought is what does this portend for the future?

We can all agree that Mubarak was a tyrant in the eyes of his people and deservedly so. And people here in the West cannot begin to imagine the hardships and travails of life in a country like Egypt or for that matter any Third World country, be it Egypt, Sudan or whatever. Too many of the citizens of the U.S., even if they were to look at it, are too busy whining about their own supposed problems to even consider what’s going on around the world. So be it. That’s what class warfare and the entitlement society have done to us.

However, as we look deeper into the Egyptian situation, we can see a rather disturbing pattern emerging. Listen to the talking heads of the MSM. Listen to the President and his out of touch administration, Hell, they can’t even get their stories straight. Hillary says one thing. Clapper says another. And the President openly welcomes the very element that can and will destroy Egypt and in turn put Israel and the West in dire straits. Of course I and many others will be called alarmists, racists or Anti-Muslim bigots for pointing this out, but it has to be said.

One only has to remember the Iran situation. Yes, the Shah as far as the people of Iran were concerned was a despot. As the people rallied there, the talking heads including our good buddy “lost in space Carter” went on and on about how the Ayatollah was in fact a moderate Muslim who would bring peace and open Democracy to the country. I distinctly remember the few brave souls who had done their homework and warned of the impending disaster that was coming. As it is now, they were branded as subversive or worse. The world sat back and we all know what has transpired since then.

As the Iran situation came to a head, the morons in the press and government here in the States put out the fallacy that the people of Iran, having grown use to the Freedoms they did have and their supposed love for all thing U.S. would in fact turn their back on radical Islamic fundamentalism and continue to embrace and expand the Western ideals to which they had grown accustomed to. Well, we all know how that worked out! Typical head in the sand gobbley goop from the West and presto!, an Islamic hell was born.

While one can hope the army there can keep the order and help transition to a free government, the chances of that happening in my view are slim at best. First, let’s take a look at the army. They have always been the power in Egypt since the overthrow of King Furuk. No secret there. Will they give up power?

As there is a vacuum in leadership right now can we assume the radical movements, those that any idiot can see are the best organized will in fact take their shots at power? You can bet your ass they will. The head of the Muslim Brotherhood is a known terrorist with a deep seated hatred for Israel. As we move forward, one has to assume they along with infiltrators from other radical Muslim states will do their best to install a Radical regime in Egypt.

It took about 30 days from the overthrow of the Shah, to the Ayatollah’s homecoming and then an almost instant plunge in radical Muslim horror that is now Iran. Is this what one wants for Egypt. And what about Israel? As we have a President who seems hell bent on hastening her destruction, will we come to the aid of Israel when the crap really hits the fan? If Egypt is taken over in the end by the radicals, will Israel survive? Hell, let’s not even go into the oil situation right now or the fact the Egypt controls the Suez Canal. At least Mubarak was honor bound to a treaty and kept too it. Can one even think for one moment that any radical function will not immediately turn on Israel?

For those out there who think I’m off base here as to what could happen, I now issue one of my Moron Alerts! What happened in Egypt happened in Iran! Heck, Mubarak even left on the same date the Shah did! For the few of us who seem to learn from history, this is almost like dejavu. The real problem is that unlike thirty years ago, there is now an organized radical Muslim front that will do anything to destroy Western Civilization as we know it! Yet our President, just like that idiot Carter before him, is to blinded by his own power mad ideology to see it!

These are and have been dangerous times. One must pray that the people of Egypt do the right thing. Israel’s safety as well as the balance of power worldwide depends on the march of Radical Islam being stopped now!


  1. Dear Joe, I read your excellent comment to my piece on Astute Bloggers. I cannot add anything to it, except to wonder, how has this happened on Obama's watch and not Bush's??
    This is like replay, as you say, of Carter's "creation" of the islamic horror that is Iran. I say that advisedly as I believe this situation in Egypt, has been brought about by the meddling of the Obama administration.(No doubt with the connivance of the UK Foreign Office, which specialises in Arabist stuff!)

  2. Hi Juniper and welcome!

    For what it's worth, I believe the main reason this is happening now is that Obama is not only perceived as an Anti-American/Western Ideals ideologue, but he is also seen as a weak leader. combine that with, again from my little view of the world, that as I said we refuse to learn from history! Ideologues keep repeating the same mistakes because "we can do it right" this time.

    As you point out in effect, muticulturalism doesn't work and this insane mindset of the left to give up our ideals as to be able to "live" with other cultures leads to these kind of situations. again, just my view.
