Mohammed Morsi gets a pass

On the Council on Foreign Relations blog, Steven Cook writes that, for a handful of reasons, the world is letting the new Egyptian President get away with behavior that undermines his country’s new freedom.

While too many “analysts” of Egypt and the region are still in love with the myth of Tahrir Square, Cook writes that “much of this is based on hunches, wishful thinking, or historical analogies that are interesting but are hardly predictive of the Brotherhood’s political trajectory.”

    The reporting of the Arab Spring was some of the most inaccurate, missed reporting in history. ported from Tahir square here is a short list of Wetsern mass medias horrible efforts.
    It failed to emphasize the importance of the Coptic church Re bombing the week before the “uprising”. 50 died and nearly 100 were maimed. the Egyptian Security forces swept up hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood members in response. One of the first achievements of the uprising was the release of thousands of Brotherhood members.
    The press focused only on the modernist and University voices, following President Obama’s lead. While tacitly giving the Muslim Brotherhood the nod.
    They missed the fact the uprising was an Islamic movement.
    They failed to report the full dimension of the Muslim Brotherhoods position when it came to elections assuming they could not achieve a majority.
    They totally miscast Morsi as a close associate of theBrotherhood and made him out to be someone who had broken with the Brotherhood.
    It is as if the western press got its reports directly from al-jazeera and passed them on without any changes.
    The Western press is obviously adhereing to Shariah Law that makes it a crime to criticize Islam, and that is in fact what is going on through out the Middle East today. We are at risk to make no mistake if we fail to support a non-Muslim state like Israel we will be next.

    Just the name ‘muslim brotherhood’ dosen’t sound very democratic…Time will tell as to whether or not the new rule will behave in a radical fashion or in a more civilized fashion.

    Well………he did go after the terrorists. He did bring the tanks back out. Let’s give him a tad more. Stopping Gaza rockets would help.

    Having listened to Steve Coughlin speak abt the Muslim Brotherhood, we have multiple reasons to be concerned abt Morsi.

    Islam is not so much a religion as it is a totalitarian political movement.

    There are many people who despise Mohammad Morsi even it’s own people.
    As long as the live Israel alone, it’s good for me. But I will not trust them yet.

    My thought is that most of the world’s leaders are doing exactly what they personally care to do , and they just give lip service to the people they are supposedly working for. Lies for truth .

    The bible has a prophesy which say that, in a certain time in history, Israel, Syria and Egypt will come together and this trio in the center of the planet will be com a blessing for the rest of the nations.
    I believe the word of God, not what I see on the political scene of the world.
