Now with regards to Morsi. Yes, he overplayed his hand. He thought that he had
the right and he was wrong.I spoke today with an Egpytian friend who
is a devout Moslem. I consider him to be a Moslem saint. He even went on the
equivalent to a Moslem mission to Chad. We have had a lot of religious
discussions. He looks back fondly on the Caliphate, the first few decades after
Mohammed when Islam had something like a utopia. He tells me that the judges
had nothing to do because the people were so good. The Caliphate ended when the
Caliphs began to rule for themselves rather than for the people. For Morsi and
the Moslem Brotherhood, they made the same mistake as the later caliphs who
ruled for themselves. It always ends that way.In conclusion I told
my friend that although there is no caliphate, we should live as if there was,
i.e. we are to do good to others and not live for ourselves.
I am glad that the Mubarak was gone. Even if he is replaced by someone who is
less friendly. The reason is that one of our principles is democracy. That
means if they elect someone that we don't like we accept it rather than
trying to get a dictatorial puppet. We are the United States of America, not
the Soviet Union. We are the good guys.
This is what you can expect from radical Muslims.
Way to go Mountainman. Obamas famous Arab spring seems to be imploding in his
face. I guess we should welcome back the bad guys he helped depose. They were
sure better for the U.S. than what we now have.
Another dictator is born, enabled by the Obama administration! Now hold on Obama
supporters! If this had happened under the Bush administration, would you not
blame him? Didn't we see and hear Hillary over in Egypt cheering on the
"Arab Spring" and calling for the resignation of Mubarak? Also,
isn't this what you liberals love: all powerful, big government control?
Interesting dilemma you face isn't it? Can't have it both ways;
can't have big, powerful governments without dictatorships! The history of
the world is full of examples and now we have yet another! This is precisely why
liberalism is dangerous and the enemy of free people everywhere!
