Egypt’s new leaders must accept reality

Dennis Ross writes that Egypt’s ruling Muslim Brotherhood has consolidated its power and is now solely in charge. The sooner they turn their attention to Egypt’s critical internal problems and away from belligerence against Israel, the better for everyone.

A new reality and an alternative reality are shaping up in Egypt. President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood appear firmly in control. Morsi seized on the killing of 16 Egyptian soldiers in the Sinai early this month — an embarrassment for the military and particularly the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces ( SCAF ) — to remove the most senior military leaders from office. He also unilaterally amended the March 2011 constitution declaration and gave his office executive and legislative powers. In short, with no hint of resistance from the military, Morsi has imposed civilian leadership on Egypt.

    We all know that all the Arab coutries surrounded the middle east want to destroy israel. But it will be a time when Iseael would say “enough is enough” and will go to war with the countries with the counries who want to destroy Israel.

    This regime in Egypt is disorganized, confused and plain stupid. There will be civil-arrest there soon with opposition among themselves. They can’t hold a candle to Israel, just a bunch of idiots!

    G-d has fortold all these events in His Word. We who have eyes to see and ears to hear must pray for Israel and the Precious Jewish People. We must pray for peace in Jerusalem, for all of Israel and for all of the Precious Jewish People. I am old before my time but I would gladly lay my life down for Israel and her People.
    Come Lord Jesus and protect your chosen People. I pray that you give all of us who love your word the strength we need to stand for Israel and the Precious Jewish People in this very important time. Give our leaders the wisdom and vision they need to know to stand for Israel in this most crucial time in history. Please give each and every one of the Precious Jewish People the strength, health, bravery and resourses they need to be strong, valient and victorious no matter what opposition they face.

    Does anyone really think the primary problems of our counry have to do with the economy, delivering health care and jobs? Really? Get real. News flash: the main problems of our country are our over all decadence, materialism, sexual depravity and coveting power and prestige. Now what do the politicians emphasize this election year? The economy, jobs and health care, of course. And why do they do that? BECAUSE THEY CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE REAL PROBLEMS. So it is with other nations, but especially those in the Middle East. The Arab leaders cannot and never will have harmony among any of their kindred, which includes Israel (please review Genesis 16:12).All we can know is that Isreal is special to God and whatever happens to her will especially be his will. The only thing we can do is trust God and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

    First do no harm. Well, we dabbled in Egypt and Libya, demanding that their tyrants go, neither of whom was hostile to the U.S. or Israel. What do we have now? Some foreign policy.

    Civilian laedership is an error in reasoning or oxy moron as it is despotic dictatorship that would by appearances re-elect pro despotic Muslim brotherhood regardless of election results.

    It is a sad case of “be careful of what you wish for”. The Obama administration was so hyped on the so-called “Arab Spring” that they failed to check out the many horrible outcomes.

    Although I disagreed with the Quaddaffi regime, I felt that he was very authoritarian, I tried to look at both sides of the story and look at the past and see where he was coming from. This is where I think the young people of today are lacking. They think only of their current situations, what brought them there. Sometimes, however it can be be something more than a superficial “band-aid” can cure. I agree, the sooner Egypt starts realizing they also have problems to work out,perhaps serious dicussion will follow. Thank you.

    I beleive everyone has under estimated the Mid-East in general, soon, very soon Israel will be in the fight of her life. It will make all previous wars appear mild in comparison. My most sincere hopes are that enough concerned people around the world will come to Israel’s aid. Israel will need thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of soldiers to help fight off the invasion of Israel by several arab nations. I hope the leaders of Israel recognize this and will let those of us who are ready and willing to come to Israel and help save the Jewish people from being wiped off the map !!!

Rabbi's Commentary
God Is Present This Holy Season

Even as efforts for peace seem to be at an impasse all around the world, the Passover story can give us hope and affirmation that God is always present in our lives, and even when situations seem impossible, He is working in ways we cannot imagine.
