Morsi has one message for the West and another for the Islamic Revolution
I say let allah feed them.Â Â Stop paying the jiziya, now!
Egypt’s president-elect Mohamed Morsi, a hard-line Islamist, says he wants tor restore ties to Iran. Iran hailed Mursi’s victory as an “Islamic Awakening.”
A key part of the Muslim Brotherhood narrative is that Mubarak sold peace with Israel on the cheap. In Egypt it is believed that the $1.3 billion that Egypt receives a year in military aid, and hundreds of millions more in economic aid, are just a portion of what Egypt’s adherence to peace is worth. To get more, the plan of the Muslim Brotherhood is to persuade Washington that it can’t take Egypt for granted. The strategy will be to stimulate crises that will be amenable to resolution by the transfer of resources. No one can predict what those crises will look like. It’s hard to imagine that some of them won’t involve Israel.
We lost Egypt more than 1000 years ago.
No use askingÂ “Who Lost Egypt?”
Who lost Egypt?Â The Egyptians, obviously. This was their moment, opportunity, choice. They choseâ€”albeit by a narrow marginâ€”a party that offers Islamic stultification as the solution to every political and personal problem. By the time they come to regret their choice, they won’t be in a position to change it.
This is what we should be concerned about:
For Muslims, we are the problem:
“In the case of Egypt, a country with two-thirds of its people on the land that imports half its caloric consumption, a 45% illiteracy rate, a university system that can’t train an employable engineer, a 30% rate of consanguineous marriage, and a 90% rate of female genital mutilation will have difficulty voting for anything but short-term survival. The Muslim Brotherhood in good Leninist fashion has increased its power on the street, and large parts of the Egyptian people depend on Islamist organizations for basicÂ necessities.”
Democracy? What Democracy?
It’s hard to improve on C.S. Lewis:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live underÂ robberÂ barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. TheÂ robberÂ baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, hisÂ cupidityÂ may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
The whole purpose of representative government is to ensure that our rulers don’t get to decide, on their own, what’s good for us.
Â In the west, we are losing it:
If this is what they mean with ‘democracy’ we may as well live under a dictatorship:
Â Post-liberalism seeks to replace the classical liberalism of individual liberty, limited government, property rights and democratic sovereignty with a new liberalism that favors social rights, social goods, intrusive government and transnational law.
Agenda 21 is not a joke. The people behind it are serious.
