On The "Democracy Movement" in the Middle East
Screaming "With our blood and soul, we will defend you, Islam," jihadists stormed the Virgin Mary Church in northwest Cairo last weekend. They torched the Coptic Christian house of worship, burned the nearby homes of two Copt families to the ground, attacked a residential complex, killed a dozen people, and wounded more than 200: just another day in this spontaneous democratic uprising by Muslim hearts yearning for freedom.
Read about this in the local paper? See it on the evening news? We are averting our eyes as radical Islam advances. We are buying into the MSM narrative that the unrest in the Middle East - Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Syria - is all being promoted by democracy loving, Muslim Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson wannabes. The narrative is dead wrong, emphasis on the word "dead."
Here is Andrew McCarthy at NRO on the ongoing overthrow of leaders in the Middle East:
...the "Arab Spring" is not the Arab Spring. It is the Islamist ascendancy. Like good democracy fetishists, though, the media is seeing the Egypt it wants to see. To the contrary, in the real Egypt, Islamist ideology is the mainstream, coursing from the beating heart of Al-Azhar University through every part of the country. Without the much-derided Mubarak around to clamp down on it, Islamists have Copts and secularists paralyzed by their habitual "unrest" and "clashes."
The goal is to make sharia the only law of Egypt, just as it is the only law of Saudi Arabia and Iran. It is the goal of the Brotherhood in all of the scores of countries in which it operates: gradually implement sharia, enclave by enclave, country by country, until a global caliphate is established.
The water carriers for radical Islam in the MSM may never understand that they, due to their weakness, would be among the first casualties under sharia.
The Long War continues and is getting more dangerous, not less, under our current feckless Administration in Washington.
