Obama and the Shadow Socialist Group Behind Egypt’s Fall?
By Michael Savage and Greg Lewis
Barack Obama has been playing a critical role in making sure that Egypt, one of our staunchest allies in the Middle East, is positioned to become the next member of the Union of Iranian Radical Islamist Republics headed by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Every single word out of the president’s mouth, every single move he’s made has had the effect of stabbing Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in the back, of opening the door to Islamist radicals taking another step on their way to restoring an unholy caliphate in that region.

Will the Real Brotherhood Please Stand Up?
Group gets a seat at the table, but what does it really want?
By Marc Tracy | Feb 7, 2011
With Vice President Omar Suleiman holding nearly unprecedented talks with Muslim Brotherhood representatives, and with Secretary of State Clinton accepting its participation in these negotiations and even President Obama de-emphasizing its importance while at the same time coming to terms with its inclusion (and not denying its “anti-U.S.” ideology), it’s time to try to answer the question: Who is the Muslim Brotherhood, and what does it want?

Hosni Mubarak Sealed His Fate in 1981
February 4, 2011 | Stephen Flurry
As Herbert W. Armstrong told the Egyptian president early on, only God can establish a just and lasting peace.
After a terrorist organization with links to the Muslim Brotherhood assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in October 1981, a startled world watched with wonder. How will this sudden, unexpected jolt impact world events? Will Sadat’s relatively unknown successor continue the pursuit of peace in the Middle East?
What few people realized at the time was that Hosni Mubarak had been carefully groomed to follow in the steps of his predecessor.

America’s Self-Righteousness Is Destroying Egypt
February 3, 2011 | Brad Macdonald
Washington’s naive devotion to democracy is doing untold damage.
For many Americans, the violent scenes of anarchy unfolding on the streets of Cairo, Alexandria and other Egyptian cities are a beautiful and inspiring sight.

On Egypt, Mubarak, And Eight More Months For The Democratic Opposition To Organize
A Quick Mubarak Exit Is Too Risky
It is not often recalled that Hamas is the Gaza branch of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.
By Edward Luttwak, 4 February 2011
The Obama administration, like much of the world, is not reacting to the situation in Egypt—a mostly rural country populated mainly by poor peasants. It is reacting to the media spectacle in the center of Cairo, in which huge but largely middle-class crowds have gathered to demand President Hosni Mubarak’s removal.
Interestingly, the few journalists who speak colloquial Egyptian Arabic report that among the poor majority of the population—those who wear the traditional robe (djellaba) and depend on bread subsidized by the state—many still support Mr. Mubarak. They know that Egypt is the world’s largest importer of wheat, and that part of it is paid for by U.S. aid. While market prices have increased by 17% since last October, the rationed bread of the poor remains very cheap.

Muslim Brotherhood Rises as Egypt and Middle East Destabilize
by Brigitte Gabriel – February 4, 2011
In the last three weeks, America has lost three major Islamic moderate governments in the Middle East. Lebanon’s secular and Western-friendly government has now been replaced and is controlled by Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy army in that country. Islamic radicals are already filling the power vacuum in Tunisia, and now Egypt is falling into chaos.
What we are witnessing in Egypt and across the Arab-Islamic world is a revolution, and not simply for economic reasons. What was sparked by uprisings in Tunisia is now taking on a life of its own, with demonstrations in Jordan, Libya, Morocco, Algeria, Yemen, Lebanon, and ones planned this weekend in Syria.

The emerging Muslim Union
By Walid Shoebat – February 04, 2011
PREPARE [Wa-a-iddou] is a single Arabic word that appears on the Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood’s logo written under the sign of the two swords, the symbol of Islamic Jihad. “Prepare” actually comes from the Quranic verse:
“Prepare against them as you are able of force and cavalry to terrorize Allah’s enemy and yours. …” (Al-Anfal:60)
Warfare and terror is their motto. It started when many Egyptians were angered at Arabia’s collaboration with the West in the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire, especially since the Caliphate fell with it. That dismantling was the primary reason the Muslim Brotherhood was created four years later in 1928; its sole purpose was the resurrection of the Caliphate. They made inroads, especially after the failure of Arab Nationalism; the Brotherhood gave birth to the slogan “Al-Islam-Huwa-Alhal” (Islam is The Solution), which became their main slogan.

Israel and Arab democracy
By Caroline Glick – February 4, 2011
Whether they are democrats or autocrats, we fully expect they will continue to hate us.
Over the past week, Israel has been criticized for being insufficiently supportive of democratic change in Egypt. While Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has been careful to praise the cause of democracy while warning against the dangers of an Islamic takeover of the most populous Arab state, many Israelis have not been so diplomatic.
To understand why, it is necessary to take a little tour of the Arab world.

Mubarak v. The Brotherhood
Andrew McCarthy . February 3, 2011
It is simply delirious to suggest that we can work with the Muslim Brotherhood, that the Brotherhood has renounced violence, or that a Brotherhood-led government will ultimately be better for the United States or, for that matter, for Egyptians.
We have two principal interests in the region: peace and anti-terrorism. Say what you will about Mubarak, who has committed abominable abuses and stunted the growth of civil society — albeit in the face of a non-stop terrorist threat that is more immediate and existential than anything we face in the U.S. Mubarak has also kept the peace with Israel, and he has been a real ally against terrorists (as opposed to “allies” who profess allegiance with us but do more to abet than defeat jihadism).

Don’t Count on Egypt’s Army
February 5, 2011 – Andrew C. McCarthy
We cannot trust Egypt’s military to combat Islamists.
‘My name is Khalid Islambouli,” the assassin thundered. “I have slain Pharaoh, and I do not fear death!” This was at an annual state parade in Cairo on October 6, 1981. Islambouli, swelling with a delirious pride, had just strafed the reviewing stand with bullets, killing Egyptian president Anwar Sadat and hurtling his nation into chaos.
That was the plan. Islambouli, like several of his coconspirators, was a Muslim Brotherhood veteran who’d drunk deep the incitements of the Ikhwan’s martyred leader, Sayyid Qutb, but lost patience with the organization’s Fabian approach to revolution. He’d joined Islamic Jihad, one of several splinter groups that would later be folded into al-Qaeda by another Brotherhood alum, Ayman Zawahiri.

Am I the Only One Troubled By Cairo Street Scenes?
by Phyllis Chesler – February 1, 2011
For days now, the mainstream and leftstream media have been telling us that the Muslim Brotherhood is not dangerous, not radically Islamist—but that even if they are Islamist that they are popular amongst the people. Western leftists view the Brothers as engaged in a Hamas-like form of soup kitchen social work/theocratic totalitarianism, but who nevertheless have earned the right to be democratically voted into power by the people.
Short-sightedly, they claim that if we are serious about standing for democracy and the vote, that we have no choice but to support what may turn out to be an even worse tyranny than that of Mubarak’s.
Such journalists also claim that the Egyptian people in the streets are not “political,” that they are impoverished, broken, barefoot warriors who have heroically risen up for jobs, food, and an end to corruption and tyranny. Indeed, the people may not be “political”—but their heroism may end up benefiting those who, unlike themselves, are already organized militarily, economically, and ideologically—like the Muslim Brotherhood.

Illusions and Delusions About the Turmoil in Egypt: What is Wrong with Rabbis Michael Lerner and Arthur Waskow?
by Prof. Phyllis Chesler – February 2, 2011
Why do so many Jews insist on their divine right to refuse to learn from history? How can a 1930s Stalinist ideology or even a 1960s liberal-socialist-feminist ideology exert such a death-grip over otherwise educated people?

Will Egyptians Take Responsibility For Their Own Dictatorships?
by Nonie Darwish – Feb 4th 2011
The Egyptian people have finally awakened to the reality of decades of oppression, dictatorship, backwardness and extreme poverty. For now, they are united in viewing Hosni Mubarak as the one obstacle to their freedom and democracy — but will they finally take responsibility for the true reason behind the long line of tyrannical Egyptian regimes? Will they examine their own failures and contributions to their problems? Or will they continue to blame America for supporting their dictator? Will they reject victimhood status and stop finger-pointing? Will they finally join the rest of the world in a new era of friendship based on mutual respect and not based on tribalism and the “us against the West” mentality?
The idea that America is behind the Mubarak dictatorship is ludicrous, but it has become a slogan not only in the Arab world, but also among many Americans. Chris Matthews of MSNBC has repeatedly blamed America for the Mubarak dictatorship. I have news for Mr. Matthews: only 3 men have ruled Egypt since 1952. Gamal Abdel Nasser was much more oppressive than Mubarak and he was certainly no friend to the US or to any other Western country. The fact is that Egyptians, and the Arab countries in general, have continually installed their own dictators, without America’s influence. America can only hope and encourage dictators who are not bellicose and who do not hate the US.

Soros and Iran, want ElBaradei to take power without winning an election
Pulling Back the Egyptian Veil
By Daniel Greenfield – February 5, 2011
The Obama administration is demanding an immediate “transition” in Egypt. By transition they mean that Muslim Brotherhood hand puppet Mohammed ElBaradei should take power immediately without the benefit of winning an election first.
Mubarak has agreed not to run for reelection. ElBaradei said that he won’t run for office, but then said that he might run “if the Egyptian people want me.” (As if the Egyptian people have anything to do with it.) But the foreign backers of the protests, Soros and Iran, want ElBaradei to take power without winning an election.

Lessons From Egypt: The United States Can Count On Israel, But Can Israel Count on the United States?
by Alan M. Dershowitz – February 5, 2011
It’s too early to learn all the possible lessons—and there will be many—from the current turmoil throughout the Middle East, but one important lesson is that there is only one democracy that the United States can always count on to remain a strong ally. That democracy is Israel. No one knows whether any or all of the Arab states that are currently in flux will pull an “Iran” on us – turning from friend to foe in the blink of an Ayatollah.
The optimists are hoping for more of a Lebanon than an Iran, but even Lebanon—with a better history of democracy than any other Arab country—is now essentially in the hands of Hezbollah. The United States cannot count on the new Egypt remaining an ally, even with the carrot of massive aid.

The things Obama left unsaid
Unlike those fighting dictators in Eastern Europe, Egypt’s liberals haven’t had solid backing from West
By Ezra Levant – February 6, 2011
Can you name a single Arab country that has switched from being a dictatorship to a democracy?
The only answer is Iraq. And the explanation for that is 200,000 U.S. and British troops who kicked out Saddam Hussein’s military dictatorship in 2003, and the 50,000 U.S. soldiers still there today, protecting that democracy from Iran-backed terrorists.
Iraqis tried to liberate themselves with a series of rebellions in 1991, after the first Gulf War had weakened Saddam. But the West didn’t lift a finger to help, so Saddam crushed them.

Twenty reasons why it’s kicking off everywhere
Paul Mason | 5 February 2011
We’ve had revolution in Tunisia, Egypt’s Mubarak is teetering; in Yemen, Jordan and Syria suddenly protests have appeared. In Ireland young techno-savvy professionals are agitating for a “Second Republic”; in France the youth from banlieues battled police on the streets to defend the retirement rights of 60-year olds; in Greece striking and rioting have become a national pastime. And in Britain we’ve had riots and student occupations that changed the political mood.
What’s going on? What’s the wider social dynamic?
