Hey, I kinda like this new Egyptian government…

March 10, 2014

1.  They have killed or imprisoned the Muslim Brotherhood…with gusto!  And- bonus points- they don’t apologize to the liberal Western media who are wailing and gnashing their teeth about Da Hood’s demise.

2.  The interim government (the military) resigned after a 15 minute meeting.  That’s getting things done!  First on the agenda…we all resign.  Second the motion?  Great, we’re adjourned until forever.  It of course is a power play for el-Sisi, but hey, at least they get things done.

3.  They don’t hesitate to jail Al-Jazeera “journalists”.  Al-jazeera has been caught using stringers who work with/for terrorists, fudging the truth in favor of terrorists and having a correspondent who moonlighted as a courier for al-qaeda.   If Osama bin Laden made a tape, you could be sure Al-Jazeera would air it.  Here’s a cartoon they ran inciting the insurgency in Iraq to go after U.S. personnel.

Friendly note to Al-Jazeera…if you get women to hold up signs proclaiming the innocence of your correspondents, try to dress them like the the one on the left, not the one on the right.  Just a friendly suggestion.


BUT….Christians are still being marginalized, persecuted, and killed in Egypt.  Two thousand years of Christian history may be coming to an end as copts are fleeing for their lives.  It doesn’t appear this new government cares much about them.




From Nice Deb–Obama is threatening Egypt’s Military

July 2, 2013

Wow, just wow

The Obama administration is urging Egyptian President Mohammed Morsy to call early elections and has warned the Egyptian military that it risks losing U.S. aid if it carries out a military coup amid the political crisis, senior administration officials tell CNN.

At the same time, the officials stopped short of saying Morsy should step down immediately.

“We are saying to him, ‘Figure out a way to go for new elections,’” one senior official said. “That may be the only way that this confrontation can be resolved.”

Anyone who thinks that Obama isn’t completely and utterly in the tank for Da Hood is willfully blind.  He has no problem with a U.S. friendly soft-dictator getting the boot, but if the organization that spawned Al-Qaeda is threatened, our president threatens to pull the plug on the billions in aid!

Walid Showbat, who I happen to agree with, maintains that this time, there will be blood.  I think that even if Morsi is defeated, he or his thugs will do what they did for decades under Mubarak—lie low and survive until they can pounce on opportunity. 

i still can’t figure out why Da Hood, after being so clever, prematurely jumped the gun when all they had to do was incrementally tighten the Sharia screws.

Look at Turkey…almost 10 years went by without any real protests and now the people are finding that the military is not really behind them.  Erdogan did it right.  Morsi was impatient.






Egypt has 48 hours left? Not so fast…

July 1, 2013

Although the military has given the political parties 48 hours to mend their differences and come to an agreement, don’t hold your breath.  Deadlines come and go in the Middle East.

However, on the brighter side, it appears this backlash against the Muslim Brotherhood (Da Hood) is even larger than the original Tahrir square demonstrations.  There were a few hundred thousand then…reportedly there are millions now.

Like I noted before, it was interesting to see Da Hood overplay its hand the way it has.  I thought they were confident because they knew they had the thing sewed up.

Perhaps they called the hand too soon….

…hundreds of protesters overran the national Muslim Brotherhood headquarters located in the Moqattam district of Cairo, resulting in the death of at least five people, according to Al-Ahram.

…Reportedly, an Egyptian military source told Reuters that across the country, more than 14 million people had participated in protests…

The article at Stratfor downplays how momentous this truly is, but it is nothing less than the biggest showdown of secularists vs. islamofascists in the world.

I predict that however this one goes, it will have similar repercussions around the Middle East.  My bet is on Da Hood.  Although they’ve badly miscalculated their strength, Morsi and his thugs will figure out a way to survive and live to fight another day.
