The Meaning of Egypt’s ‘Moderate’ Muslim Brotherhood

Michael Coren on MRC TV: To pick just one Islamic Brotherhood lie, take “Copts are not real Egyptians.” The word “copt” is the “gypt” in Egypt. The Copts are the original Egyptians. Like the Jews in Israel, they are told by Hamas, the Islamic Brotherhood, the New York Times and other fellow travellers that they …

Egypt’s President – Death Is Our Goal

Great. Egypt’s Constitution should be based on the Koran and Sharia law, presidential candidate from the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist movement Mohamed Morsi said. “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal,” Morsi said in his election speech before Cairo …

Islamist Regimes = Skidmarks on the Undies of Life

‘Judgement day has come!’ ‘We will kill all the Jews.’ Some of the chants repeated at a rally in Cairo. It is simply nonsense to suggest, as some have done, that Muslims hate Jews because of Israel. Muslims have conducted campaigns of extermination against Jewish populations since Islam began. The mufti of Jerusalem looked forward to …

Israel Is Worried

And it is right to be. Mohammed ElBaradei says that Israel signed a treaty with Mubarak, not Egypt. Not one of the parties or movements which could potentially form part of a new Egyptian government is friendly, or even neutral, towards Israel and the West. Said Abdel-Khalek, former editor in chief of the Wafd Party’s Al-Wafd, …

A Religion Cannot Be Bad…

Nor can a culture. We all just have to accept one another and learn from one another. Yes. Lovely. Except that accepting this lovely idea means ignoring virtually the whole of world history. Andrew McCarthy at the NRO notes a particularly egregious example of sharia in practice – a fourteen year old girl who had …

Nonie Darwish On The Enemy Within

Losing Egypt …

Christians in Egypt

From The Barnabas Fund: As Egypt descends into deeper unrest … the country’s Christians are falling victim to the chaos as their shops are looted and essential supplies start to run out. The majority of Egyptian Christians already live in extreme poverty, and as the demonstrations paralyse daily life, their struggle to make ends meet …

Thank God For Israel

One sixth of one percent of the land in the Middle East. No oil. Not much in the way of natural resources. Constantly under threat. Yet what they have built, and what they give, is amazing. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem – those who love you will prosper. Psalm 122:6

Can Obama Really be That Naive?

‘Don’t worry about the Muslim Brotherhood’, President Obama is reported as saying, ‘they don’t have majority support.’ Maybe not, but they do have majority support for the majority of things they believe in – an islamist state, sharia law, beheading people who leave islam, stoning adulters, war with Israel, etc. And they are the only well …

Cool Hats, Dudes

More about Egypt a bit later, but for now, these tidbits from the Daily Mail: A handy supply of stones for peaceful pro-democracy protestors to throw at people who disagree with them:  And a selection of creative protective headgear in case one happens to be hit by a peace-loving stone:

Egypt is Revolting

And so is Tunisia. And Yemen. And Jordan. And Algeria. None of these are places I would choose to live. And since Islamic states generate most of the world’s refugees, I guess lots of other people would choose not to live there either. If they had the choice. So it is not surprising that residents of …
