Be Careful What You Wish For

Protests; turned violent in Egypt are being billed by some as a pro democracy movement. Of course those who understand the region, as well as what democracy means,  know that the drive to replace President Mubarak, an unquestioned despot has nothing to do with democracy.

While there is little question the people of Egypt want a change in the governemnt it is questionable that they want a democracy. Democracy is not something the peoples of the middle east and northern Africa understand. In fact Democracy stands in direct contradiction to the Islamic faith the vast majority of the inhabitants of the region  practice. The protests are merely a first step towards  instituting an Islamic Theocratic State that will in all likelihood look a lot like The Islamic Republic of Iran.

TMB {The Muslim Brotherhood} as we have shown in several prior posts here at Rational Nation USA  stands for Jihad and negating the peace treaty with Israel that has been in effect since 1979 and been responsible for a more secure region. TMB, while claiming not to be interested in "running" Egypt stands to make up thirty to forty percent of any new government post Mubarak. Given that TMB is anything but secular it stands to reason the organization will pursue the stated goals found on TMB website as well as their public statements.

It has often been said "be careful what you wish for."  It should also be said "be careful in whom you place your trust and support."  TMB is not a democratic movement, it will not offer greater freedom or liberties to the people of Egypt,  rather it will work to create an Islamic theology in the region and will support Jihad, Islamic dominance and Sharia law.

It's all there to see. If only the world {most specifically the progressive dewy eyed liberals}would pay attention and forget political correction for once.

Except from ALJAZEERA.

In a bid to calm the situation, Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, said on Thursday that Muslim Brotherhood and other opposition groups had been invited to meet the new government as part of a national dialogue.

An offer to talk to the Muslim Brotherhood would have been unthinkable before protests erupted on January 25, indicating the gains made by the pro-democracy movement since then.

But sensing victory, they have refused talks until Mubarak goes.

Opposition actors including Mohamed ElBaradei, the former UN nuclear watchdog head, and the Muslim Brotherhood said again that Mubarak, who wants to stay on until elections scheduled for September, must go before they would negotiate with the government.

"We demand that this regime is overthrown, and we demand the formation of a national unity government for all the factions," the Muslim Brotherhood said in a statement broadcast by Al Jazeera....

 We shall wait and see. It isn't looking to promising.

The rest at ALJAZEERA.
