A prophetic shaking throughout the Middle East
The news media and the Director of National Intelligence have been proven wrong that the Muslim Brotherhood is a non-violent group with mainly secular ties. AFP reports that the "spiritual leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood", also the head of the International Union for Muslim Scholars, cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi issued a religious edict, or fatwa, that fellow sponsor of terrorism Moamer Kadhafi is to be killed. Al-Qaradawi told Al Jazeera television from his base in Qatar, "Whoever in the Libyan army is able to shoot a bullet at Mr. Kadhafi should do so...to rid Libya of him." This should be a clear indicator to the White House that the Muslim Brotherhood is assisting in the unrest of the entire Middle East.
The Middle East is in uproar. This obvious statement belies explanation. The Western news media says it is an uprising of people around the region who want freedom and democracy. But what does not fit this picture is the Muslim Brotherhood. This group is a terror sponsoring group that advocated a worldwide Caliphate--that is Sharia Law established in every country on the earth. Democracy is the antithesis of Muslim Brotherhood doctrine. Peace is only the peace of Islam, which is found in Sharia law. And freedom is the freedom found in the shackles of Sharia. No other political body on the face of the earth promotes human rights violations and slavery more than the so-called "peaceful" religion of Islam.
That the Muslim Brotherhood is working with its natural opposition, the Shiite Iranian Ayatollah, in overthrowing what many consider radical regimes, means one of two things: either a more moderate government is sought, or a more radical government is on the horizon. Given the rhetoric that one reads on the signs of the protestors and hears in their chants, the hate for Israel and America does not give much hope for a moderate, democratic replacement of these regimes. Once again, to discern this "movement" properly, one has to look at the actions of the people, not the reporting of idealist left-leaning journalists.
The sinister and warlike characteristics of Islam were long adopted before Mohammed chose the greatest of the pagan gods in the temple at Mecca to be the one and only allah. Ishmaelites descended from Ishmael and are mentioned no less than eight times in the Old Testament. In Psalm 83, Asaph writes in verse 4, "They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance." Then he lists those who wish to destroy Israel and among them are the Ishmaelites. The more things change, the more they remain the same. This Islamist uprising is not about democracy, perhaps more about demon-ocracy. Take heed that you are not deceived.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
