No one puts Morsi in a corner

Writing at the Council on Foreign Relations, Steven Cook writes that our expectations of Egypt in the wake of last week’s embassy riot are established as if Egypt is a fully democratic, Western country – which it is not.

He writes that, regardless of what is motivating our expectations, “Americans consistently fail to recognize that Arabs have their own politics and have the ability to calculate their own interests independently of what Washington demands.”

    It will come a time when Morsi go down like the rest of the Arab leaders.

    Linda you have forgotten to say as wild as a donkey i.e. irrational to say the least. Since God uttered the words about Ishmael. The world has never been able to prove the Lord wrong.

    THE ONLY FULLY DEMOCRATIC STATE IN THE MIDDLE-EAST IS ISRAEL. ALL OF THE MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE NOT DEMOCRATIC BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION.WHEN THEY CHANGE LEADERS NOTHING ELSE CHANGES. THEY ARE STILL FULL OF HATRED AND EVIL. THEIR FOCUS IS TO CREATE A WORLD WHERE THERE BELIEFS DOMINATE AND THIS IS WHAT MAKES THEM IRRATIONAL AND DANGEROUS. THEY FIGHT AMONG THEMSELVES AND ARE A DESTRUCTIVE BUNCH THAT GOD TRULY MUST DEAL WITH.

    “Americans consistently fail to reco,,,” That comment is about as sanitized hogwash as it gets, arabs only have sharia and calaphate agressions in mind! It is obvious even to the casual observer.

    The Islamic god is the god of the Islamic prophet Muhammad but NOT the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and Moses and King David. There is no similarity between these two.

    Muslims who are TRUE TO THEIR RELIGION cannot be and should not be trusted by ANY non-Muslim. To them, as stated in their book, lying to non-Muslims or even killing them is justified by their god.

    The reason the Obama government and state have tried to elevate the “Islamic Muslim Brotherhood Democracy” to that we expect is genuine representational government is to undermine our own sense of and expectation of democracy in our Republic. They would trade our Constitutional enodwed voting privelage, one person one vote in a national election and reduce us to one vote per person globally, they already deal in foreign policy and UN programs that accept that perception through a democratic process? absolutely not, their process and Islam is anti-theitical to genuine democracy.

    I think it is totally a set up. Also, why can Muslims burn down Christian churches, kill Christians, kill those or jail those who covert to Christianity and yet they get all upset over a short video making fun of their prophet and have an all out animalistic reaction to it? We are supposed to let them kill God’s people and yet they can’t take a video? I watched the video, it’s very grade schoolish, and ridiculous but really, for an all out outrage liek they are having, I don’t think the reaction fits the video. It’s overkill to say the least, which makes me believe it is a total set up, adn Sept 11 is a little too coincidental too. That’s my comment.

    Morsi is cozy with Barack Hussein Obama. Morsi is a member of the Muslim brotherhood! Need I say more?? Islam is evil. The US president sides with the muslim rather than the American people of US citizenship. This president is a phony. The democratic party refused to vett him. And he has his records and college transcripts sealed along with other important info as to who ..the real Barack Obama is. But now the American people Know. His record speaks volumes! We will kick his behind out the door come elect in Nov 2012. He has been a disgrace to the United States of America. Gov. Mitt Romney will do a great job in recovery with GOD’S help! He ‘SUPPORTS ISRAEL AND THE RIGHT TO EXIST!” SHALOM~

    I hope that this explanation is not being offered as an excuse why we should not be hurt over the killings in Lybia and the damage to the embassies in Lybia snd Egypt. These actions are just not acceptable and are not explained by these offered words- however sincere.

    Just as these governments and their people have expectations, so do we in the US. Many of us are no longer willing to pay for the repairs and have our people put in danger because of these ideas/ practices.

    Have we forgotten, Gen. 17;12, He will be a wild man: and his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him… This is Islam in prophecy. We can’t believe or trust any Muslim.

    Unless people’s hearts and minds are changed from being angry, hating and revengeful, wars and atrocities will continue. All of the best political moves in the world will never change people’s hearts and minds. Only our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, can do
    that. All who want to be saved need to turn to Him.

Rabbi's Commentary
Clarity in a Confused World

In response to this week’s horrific terrorist attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded with a voice of moral clarity. We, as people of faith and conscience, must all cling to such clarity in a world so often ruled by moral confusion.
