Some of the most maddening arguments during the “Arab Spring” was with clueless imbeciles who have absolutely no real understanding of Islam, who vehemently insisted the uprisings and riots from Egypt to Libya were “revolutions for freedom”. They cited the USA’s support for strongman tyrants like Mubarak as evidence that once again – the USA was evil – and now we needed to support the ‘uprisings’ in the Arab world to correct the wrongs we supposedly supported.
We warned them that their cheerleading and support was misplaced. We warned them about the Muslim Brotherhood being the instigating arm of these uprisings. We warned them that the euphoria of replacing their dictator would be replaced by the brutal tyranny of Sharia Islamic law. We warned them that elements of Al Qaeda were assisting in the transitions. We warned them a despotic Islamic state would replace a secular state that was tolerant of Christians.
We were accused of denying freedom and being supporters of tyrants.
Now we are beginning to see that the warnings we had given back this Spring are actually coming to pass.
MEMRI reports that a senior Egyptian Cleric has said “We will Launch a Campaign of Islamic Conquests to Instate Shari’a Worldwide…but if the Christians Make Problems for the Muslims, I Will Exterminate Them’
We warned that the picture taking shape from all the uprisings in the Arab world, some of them sponsored by and supported by the Obama regime, was that radical Islam was in the wings to replace secular dictators and regimes benign or friendly to the West and the USA.
In short – the cheerleaders in the West and in this country – were cheering a movement that we warned would work to take over all of the Middle East in the push for a Caliphate and attempt to impose global Islam – resulting in the extermination of Christians within their reach once they got control of these governments.
And that warning was not by some prophetic vision – it was taking the leaders behind the movement of the Arab Spring at their word.
But ignorant feelings seem to trounce facts and common sense these days.
Which is why, when you listen to the leaders of Jihad – they see their opportunity to impose worldwide Islam – as one that is an assured victory they sense is achievable.
