Remember, The People of Egypt Demanded Democracy
It is true. Hosni Mubarak was a brutal dictator. Of course he was a pro-American brutal dictator who kept peace with Israel. So how’d the Obama Regime react?
They swung into action—the democratic aspirations of the Egyptian people must be met. Mubarak had to go. Within a week, influential exiled Islamist radical, Yusuf al-Qaradawi took over in Cairo. Even though the Army is still in charge of the government, the Muslim Brotherhood is in charge of the country and will run the government within months.
Protesters in a southern Egyptian city insisted on Thursday their new Christian governor resign, stepping up a week-long challenge to his appointment by the country’s military rulers.
The army generals ruling Egypt since President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster appointed Emad Mikhail, a Copt and a senior former officer in Egypt’s vilified police force, as governor of Qena province earlier this month.
But he has so far not taken up his post because thousands of demonstrators have contested the decision, resorting to the same people-power that ended Mubarak’s 30-year rule in February.
Protesters have blocked highways and railway tracks leading to Qena, a province with a large Coptic Christian population and whose previous governor was also a Christian.
Now, there’s democracy for you, the Coptic Christian province cannot have a Christian governing. Expect the Christians to be dead or gone within ab out two years. Good thing that brutal dictator is gone. But is there more news from Egypt today? Why yes, I think there is. The Associated Press is reporting:
CAIRO – Hundreds of Islamists have staged a protest in front of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to demand the release of an Egyptian cleric imprisoned in the United States for plots to blow up New York City landmarks.
Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as the blind sheik, is serving life in prison after a 1995 conviction for his advisory role in conspiracies to blow up the United Nations and several New York bridges and tunnels.
On Thursday, protesters near the heavily fortified embassy held banners reading “freedom for our sheik” and chanted slogans and held prayers.
The protest leader was Abboud el-Zomor, who was released from an Egyptian prison in March after serving multiple sentences for his role in the assassination of former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.
You just read the definitive answer to the question, “How’s that Egyptian democracy working out?” Egypt (with her Suez Canal) will become an American adversary and actively hostile to Israel.
Time Magazine led their Top 100 Influential People List today with Wael Ghonim. If you are a regular here, you’ll remember Ghonim is Google’s top man in the Middle East who through Facebook networking generated the crowds in the Cairo streets beginning January 25th. Time credits Ghonim with leading Egypt to democracy. Two problems with that.
FIRST: The absence of any hope for any freedom. Oh, Egypt will have a constitution and elections—just no freedom.
SECOND: When al-Qaradawi took over February 18, speaking in front of millions, his men hustled Ghonim away. Ghonim never had one chance to stand before what thrned out to be tool of Islamism for his 15 minutes of fame.
