And Looking For Sam Adams
Freedom House, Washington, D.C., has been grading countries (and territories, for that matter) on human rights abuse for seventy years. (I do not know or recommend their criteria.) Here is their worst abuser . . .
Oh no, can it not be Egypt?
It is instead,
Well, #2 is still unacceptable. Well, I see #2 is not Egypt either. Second worst is,
O.K. let’s just run down the list; find Egypt
The two territories of South Ossetia and Western Sahara
Egypt seems not to have made the top 20 abusers. And did you notice, Tunisia is not there either. How did Afghanistan, and, for that matter, Pakistan escape the list. I didn’t see Zimbabwe on that list either. Well, we’ll stop before we beat this horse to death (a little civility lingo there.) It could be the criteria is simply faulty —I’m open to that. After all, Iran is not on the list nor are the Palestinians. Got that?
Of course, the human conditions are terrible in Egypt. We are not for that. But is this devil we know, who kept a peace with Israel for more than 30 years, worse than the devil, we don’t know? American Secular Fundamentalist group, Code Pink is lending their support to overthrow the human rights abuser, Mubarak. (Keep in mind, this outfit sees G. W. Bush as similar to Mubarak but thinks Cuba is paradise.)
We will have the Muslim Brotherhood if the demonstrators (with help from the Obama regime?) topple Mubarak. Who or what is the Muslim Brotherhood? They are the fountainhead of Hamas and the Sunni terrorist organizations (al–Qaida). America’s principal Muslim organizations (CAIR) all are committed to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Here is their creed:
“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
Of course it is useful to shuffle the deck from time to time. But, is it our job? Do we know where the jokers are? If this deck is shuffled now, can a winning hand be dealt?
