Commentary & Analysis
L. A. Marzulli
I got into bed around 10 last night and slept really well, which is unusual for the first night out. Today we will film two interviews for Prophecy in the News, with Gary Stearman, as J. R. Church is, at the present time, bed ridden with cancer. Prayers his way from all of us here on this BLOG.
I want to bring to your attention to an interview that I saw late last night on the TUBE. There was an Imam who was being interviewed and he was trying to assuage any fears that we, in the west, would have about the Moslem Brotherhood. “The Brotherhood is not interested in violence…” Well, I don’t buy it for a minute, not even for a second. When a representative of the Brotherhood announces that the eyes of Egypt will be on Israel, do we really believe, for a moment that he’s just pulling our leg? That he doesn’t mean what he says and says what he means? Do we really think that a leopard can change its spots? The Moslem Brotherhood creed states plainly that, Jihad is our way! I’m not making this up, that’s what the creed states. Do we think that somehow this doesn’t apply to the present day? Do we really believe that these guys aren’t interested in implementing Sharia law, Jihad, and martyrdom? I am amazed that we even listen to this kind of double speak.
Egypt is about to implode as a result of President Mubarak’s refusal to step down. The latest news is that he’s left for his summer residence, in Sharm el Sheik. He goes from one palace to another and expects the people to hang on until September?
As I have stated before, Islam is the predominant world view of the Egyptian people and thus, in my opinion, there is no springboard to democracy. There is no phrase, like, all men are created equal, because Islam teaches that Jews are the descendants from pigs and apes, and that infidels are not equal to a moslem. This is contradictory to any form of a democracy, where all men and women are created equal and are protected under a constitution with each having one vote.
It will be interesting to see what plays out, but if I were a betting man, and I’m not, I would put my money on the Brotherhood. I’m willing to bet that there will be an Islamic republic, similar to Iran, where Sharia rules and the Imams decree endless Fatwa’s. Where women are second class citizens and amputations and stoning, are dished out as punishment for crimes. The last vestige of Coptic Christians will flee for their lives, as will any Jews who are left in the country.
Then the Imams and the Moslem Brotherhood will turn their eyes to Israel. Forget about creating a viable infrastructure, better irrigation, schools, hospitals and a better life for the people. No, the cry will be to kill the Israeli’s to wipe Israel off the face of the earth and free the oppressed Palestinians.
In closing today’s post. The uprising in Egypt is spreading to other countries and Jordan, may be next in line for an upheaval. The Iraqi government is being propped up by the US, but the sectarian violence continues, in that country, and on and on it goes.
In my book Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural, I quote Henry Kissenger, “We are at the point of a clash of civilizations, between Islam and the West.” We must understand that unless Islam is reformed, which I doubt will happen anytime soon, the hatred of the Jews and Infidels which is inherent to the religion, will continue to foster the violence and repression that it has for centuries.
