It is clearly naïve to believe that the revolution in both North Africa and the Middle East will result to democratic reforms. The term spring of nation was upheld in Europe in the late 1840s, and in France, the revolution against the monarchy led to free elections. All of this that happening in the Middle East is supported by Politicians like Obama and his Leftist friends from the European Union who are blinded by political correctness, and choose the side of ignorance.
The Arab Spring means that the Muslim Brotherhood has a plan to take control of all Muslim countries and establish a Caliphate, in other words a worldwide super state, where they can subjugate everyone who does not believe in their religion, as well as women, minorities, Jews, intellectuals, gays and they plan to kill apostates. Obama might be a Mahdi for the Muslim Brotherhood, who knows? The Muslim Brotherhood has plans to exercise fatwas against those who criticize Islam and its teaching, whether it’s in the Western world or elsewhere. When demonstrators shout “Freedom! Freedom” on streets of Cairo, Tunis, Marrakech, Damascus, Bahrain, Doha, Tripoli, Benghazi, Sana, Algiers and other places in the region, it’s not the freedom we mean in a pluralistic Western society style.
Islamic societies do not the value freedom, the same way we do in Western societies because they hate everything we stand for. If the Arab world wants democratic reforms, they need to realize that it does not gel with the religious beliefs of Islam and its teachings. I doubt that it is going to happen. Some of you might read this blog by surprise thinking that I am a bigot. The truth is that it’s out of context when it comes to this conversation. Some of you might even call me an Islamophobe because of my remarks on this blog, but slave your breath because Islamophobia is a manipulative word, which is used by both Liberals and believers of the “Religion of Peace” to silent anyone who criticizes the world’s fastest growing religion. Obama is not willing to criticize the Muslim world in many ways because he grew up in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim country.Don't get me wrong,there are 1,2 billion Muslim men and women in the world, most of them are people of good heart who want to live their lives, take care of their children and go on with their business. However, there are still hundreds of millions of Islamists who hate our way of life, they are willing to destroy the Western civilization and subjugate everyone to the laws of their religion.
Democracy does not come by itself; it is something that you have to fight for. That requires a change of mentality, attitude, reformations and the desire to promote fundamental rights for the people. Democracy means that it is the people who rule, that’s not the case when it comes to theocracy because it is religious that run the society. Democracy is about taking collective responsibility for each nation’s path to progress, which does not come cheap. There is a price to pay when it comes to defending free speech, freedom of conscious, freedom of identity and self-determination.
Democracy is not about blaming others for one’s problems, but looking for ways to bright solutions. We have witnessed the Arab Spring in both North Africa and the Middle East, and the media in the West and beyond came up with some ideal thoughts by comparing the events with the circumstances that occurred in Eastern Europe, when countries like Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. All I am saying is “not so fast” because we are being naïve here. I know that I will be accused of bigotry, intolerance, hate speech and worse things that apologetics from the Liberal elite, the Islamic world and the Arab world. Every time you criticize Islam, Muslims who can’t stand free speech threaten you with physical violence.
When Danish journalists from Jyllands Posten, a Danish news paper publishes the 12 pictures of Mohammed, they Arab and the Muslim world were offended. That is why I still don’t believe that they have any idea about what freedom of speech is. Europe needed reformation and enlightenment, before they reaped the fruits of democracy. Of course democracy begun in Greece for a very long time. The reason why I have doubts about the Arab Spring resulting to democratic reforms it’s because they have a religion that is divided in 3 dimensions: The religious dimension, the social and the political dimensions. In Egypt, like in any other Muslim countries, 84 % of Egyptians want the Sharia to be the main law of the land.
They also mean that apostates should be killed, if they leave Islam and they support the goal for an Islamic state worldwide. Our politicians in the West have themselves to blame when they fail to tell us the truth for fear of offending the Muslim world. In the G8 meeting, in Deauville, France world powers have agreed to give more money to the Arab world because they believe that their actions will result to democracy.
I shake my head and wonder what happened to the leaders we have chosen to lead each of our countries. The only democracy in the Middle East I know is the State of Israel, no one else. The rest of the non-democratic world, where more than 75% of women are beaten by their husbands, children being brainwashed by the ideologies of hate, the persecutions of Jews and other believer still is part of the daily life and not to forget that they want to bring the world back to the 7th century. We are making excuses for their way of thinking because we choose to turn the blind eye, instead of calling a spade for a spade.
