There goes the army; there goes the free media; there goes Egypt

Barry Rubin writes that Morsi’s actions in removing the Egyptian military leadership amounts to a coup by the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi is bound by no constitution. He can do as he pleases unless someone is going to stop him. And the only candidate–the military–is fading fast, far faster than even pessimists would have predicted.

Check out Rubin’s piece for GLORIA Center.

    Israel is watching the Arab countries very closely, and that’s why there are soldiers in the border to see who is coming and who is going.
    If Obama were a dicent President, he would have helped Israel.

    The situation in Egypt is further proof that Obama has an agenda in the Middle East and this agenda does not favor Israel. Mubarak was honoring the treaty between the two countries that served to stabilize relations for thirty years. Also, Mubarak would not allow terrorist groups to use Egypt for a staging area to plan terrorism against Israel. Mubarak established and maintained good relations with Netanyahu. Mubarak offered to stay in power until September to help create a framework for a constitution but Obama would have none of it and had Mubarak ousted immediately. Let’s remember Mubarak assisted America in various events over the years, which means until Obama took power the U.S. didn’t have a problem with him. The Arab Spring which was so revered by the American media and the Obama administration to be a new awakening for Arabs and a battlecry for a better standard of living and democracy did not live up to expectations and turned out to be nothing more than an excuse for beatings, assault, and rape. Also, keep in mind that the definition of the word “democracy” has much different meaning to the Arabs than it does to Israel or the U.S. Now we have a situation in which many belive, myself included, that Egypt is being run by a terrorist group outright or one that is sympathetic to the cause of terrorism, the Muslim Brotherhood has already stated that they will accept the treaty between Israel and Egypt on face value and would have to re-evaluate the agreement. What all of this means for Israel does not look very promising and can overturn a rare bastion of peace and security into something else Israel will have to deal with. While this unsettling situation goes on, Israel faces the omgoing struggle to survive against most of the regional powers, this provides another example that Obama’s interests are not the same as Israel’s. In many cases, the interests that Israel and America have are quite different and antagonistic. This is why for those who are pro Israel need to be smart enough not to fall for Obama;s hollow campaign rhetoric and take the time to evaluate the turn of events regarding the middle east since Obama took power. If your honost with yourself, you will come to the conclusion that Obama is living up to his campaign promise of 08′, there is most difenitly been “change,” this type of “change” can only do more damage to Israel, we can’t have it, and anyone who cares about the well being of Israel will understand this fact, and keep it in mind during the upcoming Presidential elction. It will also require a sea change on the part of the Jewish American electorate who have historically sided with the Democrats. I am an independent, and in fareness don’t agree with some of the Republicans platform but they do have a very convincing trump card, supporting Israel. I urge everyone to spend some time thinking about what the consequences will be if Obama is re-elected, choose wisely.

    Egypt indeed is not ready for democracy because it’s people are not liberally minded. They are intolerant to other beliefs ar ideas other than islamic mind frame.

    Victoria, where can they go? These countries are going to invade Israel at some point. It’s inevitable. But we also know that God will intervene. There’s simply no way that Israel will win the w/o GOD

    This should be no surprise to anyone that this has happened. People will think this is great but just wait all the freedoms that they thought they were going to have will be taken away by force OR the Egyptian military will seize control once again. I hope?

    Read Is.19:2-4. Does this sound familiar with what’s happened in Egypt? There are things that must happen to fulfill prophecy. Keep reading in Is.19:19-25 though; God has everything under control!

    American intel Obama and the media were very accepting of the Arab Spring it failed to anticipate. The week before the “uprising” a coptic church was bombed creating nearly 50 fatalities and 100 maimed. The ensuing crackdown imprisoned numerous Muslim broterhood agents. One of the first consequences of the uprising was the release of nearly 3,-4,000 Muslim Brotherhood militants. None of tis has ever been cited as causes for the uprising. The press ignored Islamists in the “rebellion”,even when there was evidence that the Brotherhood, Al-qadea and other terrorist cells and Hamas set bombs on the Egytp Israeli pipeline which was bombed no less than 4 times. The media claimed the Brotherhood could not win a majority maybe only a 1/3 of the seats in their legislature. wrong. then we were told they had no onterest in running a candidate for premier, then were told Morsi was not muslim Brotherhood anymore, then maybe, then he’s a bro! and this weekend one media agent spitting out tunes like Al-jazeera rpoclaimed Morsi Egypt’s first Islamic President.
    This should be a road map for Americans this is ow Islamic Jihadi’s like the Brotherhood/North American Muslim societies get a foot in the door and the next ting you know CAIR is pushing legislation to make it a criminal offense, in line with a UN proposal to criticize Islam. Obama is either a big idiot or party to this trend. Ask any of the 200,000 coptics who have fled Egypt, experienced pogroms over even suggested Christian crimes, like a Muslim woman marrying a Christian, and other religious laws being enforced on non-Muslims in Egypt today. The Brotherhood’s already expanding its power and the Gazans are likely to be sorry. and americans fooled once again as to what is really going on at the Gazan border.

    No surprise that the Muslim Brotherhood (“MB”) has done this. It is simply wrong. What is so very embarrassing is that our U.S. Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense agreed with such a move. Dear people Israel, they were doing the will of Obama, who hosted the MB leadership in OUR White House. Look to him for the early removal of Mubarek amid objections from other world leaders who wanted Mubarek to transition out as had previously been agreed.
    The only solid rock in this world is YHWH!

"informing, equipping and mobilizing individuals and churches to support the
State of Israel"

Rabbi's Commentary
Coming Together for Freedom

Renewed rocket fire not only brought an end to the most recent ceasefire, it made clear once again that Hamas does not want peace with Israel – it wants the destruction of the Jewish state. Now is the time for the free world to unite and come together in the fight for freedom, peace, and civilization as we know it.
