Prophetic consequences of American leadership supporting Muslim Brotherhood
The Islamic-friendly White House supports replacing the Egyptian government with a coalition that includes the radical terrorist sponsoring Muslim Brotherhood. This move, supported by the Secretary of State and the president, will undoubtedly usher in a new era of terrorist-based instability in the Middle East and cause grave consequences for the United States and Israel for decades to come. The president's first major speech supported and glorified Islam in Cairo. It is likely no prophetic coincidence that since then there has been great economic calamity, oil disaster, violence on the borders, and political unrest. The more America concerns herself with Egypt, the more consequences are likely.
On National Public Radio, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, "Today we learned the Muslim Brotherhood decided to participate, which suggests they at least are now involved in the dialogue that we have encouraged." Clinton is holding strong to the White House line that America is supporting democracy in Egypt. Despite warnings from Israel, veteran foreign policy experts and conservatives, this White House is buying the lie that the Muslim Brotherhood will participate in a democratic government. The man in the Oval Office said, "Now, it is not the role of any other country to determine Egypt's leaders...Furthermore, the process must include a broad spectrum of Egyptian voices and opposition parties."
There are lessons from America's actions regarding Iran, Iraq, and the Palestinian Authority. When President Jimmy Carter helped depose the Shah of Iran-- a ruler friendly to the United States and one who kept the balance of peace in the Middle East--the result was the birth of a new era of terrorism. When President George W. Bush "liberated" Iraq and established "democracy" there--the people adopted a Sharia-law type of Constitution where religious freedom is essentially nonexistent. When "democratic" elections were held by the Palestinian Authority, the majority that were elected were members of the terrorist group Hamas.
Islam is a tyrannical political system disguised as a religion. Islam can embrace "democracy" because it feeds into Islam's totalitarian political goals. By encouraging the engagement of the Muslim Brotherhood in a so-called democratic system, the American leadership is paving the way for persecution of Christians and Jews and the escalation of a new Islamic order. Isaiah 59:8 says, The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace." Islam will only be emboldened by the unwise actions of the American leadership. Ezekiel 7:25 says, "Destruction comes; and they shall seek peace and there shall be none."
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
