…and you call this the Arab Spring?
While there have been references to “spring” pertaining to a variety of uprisings throughout history, our latest usage of the term originated in an article in Foreign Policy Magazine written by Marc Lynch titled “Obama’s Arab Spring?” in January 2011.
Obama’s Arab Spring, indeed. The naiveté by the left toward Islam and the Arab “spring” surpasses all human understanding. It has been well understood by those of us paying attention that Islam and the left are in close alliance. Strange bedfellows? Not really. They share mutual top down, authoritarian goals and lust for power as described in Pamela Geller’s great book “Stop the Islamization of America” and Andrew McCarthy’s groundbreaking “The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America.”
What else should be expected in the midst of a region where Islam is rediscovering its fascist supremacist fanatical roots and 99% of the population is Muslim? As the Prime Minister of Turkey recently stated, “Democracy is like a bus – you get on and get off.” Democracy was used by Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt for a few months until the Muslim masses yearning to breathe Islam voted in the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s where they got off of the democratic “bus.” Syria is likely to avoid the bus altogether and revert straight to the Brotherhood. Why bother with formalities?
For those of who are as naive as our Director of National Intelligence James Clapper who claimed that the Brotherhood is “largely secular”, here is the bad news: The Brotherhood is the largest Sunni movement in the Arab world (yes, Islamic, not secular) and its’ mission is to re-establish the Caliphate and promote the Sharia in nations it dominates. Translated, this means that a half dozen or more Arab Spring nations will become little Afghanistans where Islam will spawn and motivate thousands upon thousands who hate the west to do all in their power to “eliminate and destroy the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions." The Brotherhood will energize the ant hill.
US foreign policy under Barack Obama has advanced the death of the West by aiding and abetting the conquest of secular governments by Islamists who have vowed to annihilate both the little Satan, Israel, and the big Satan, the United States. Given Obama’s lifelong influences and stated desires, any other outcome would be highly unlikely.
