I forgot to write about an important 30th anniversary I had on my calendar a couple of weeks ago. On January 20, 1981, American hostages were released from Iran after 444 days in captivity during Iran’s “democratic revolution.” America, under Jimmy Carter, helped usher the pro-American, pro-Israel, pro-Western Shah out in favor of Ayatollah Khomeini and his fundamentalist savages. It’s hard to believe that, after 30 years, America has learned nothing about the over-rated “reforms” and “democratic elections” we’ve pushed on the Greater Barbaria that is the Islamic world. And, now, we are seeing the results with the Muslim Brotherhood about to take over Egypt, with Hezbollah having captured Lebanon, and with HAMASastan before that.
Islamic World Needs More King Husseins (left) & Black Septembers, Less Hosni Mubaraks (Right) Unwilling to Use Sufficient Force
I warned about this throughout the Bush Administration (and posted a list of many Mid-East and Islamic world countries and the disastrous predictions of what would happen when “democrats” take over in “free elections”–I’ve been proven right on quite a few). While Bush walked around with Natan Sharansky’s now-remaindered book about free elections, he pushed Sharansky’s empty theories–which do not apply to barbarians and savages who belong to a worldwide cult–as his excuse for “liberating” Iraq and allowing American boys to die in the name of Iraqi Shi’ite Muslims ushering in an Iranian-backed theocratic government via “free elections.” What we see on the streets of Egypt is what we’d see–as I’ve repeatedly warned over the years–if Egypt had free elections. These Muslim Brotherhood mobs would rule. Just as Bin Ladenites would rule a free and democratically elected government of Saudi Arabia. Just as Muslims’ CINO (Christian In Name Only) puppets rule Dearbornistan, Michigan on their behalf. If there were free elections in Jordan today, HAMAS or Fatah would win, and King Abdulllah would be out.
And, despite all of my warnings and the warnings of others–that this is the Mid-East, not the Mid-West, and they are only controlled through authoritarian dictators–Bush and Condi Clueless pushed free elections in Gaza, after they succeeded in getting Ariel Sharon to usher out all civilized people (Jews) from the area. Then, they were shocked–shocked!–when barbarians elected barbarians. Do you really need to be Einstein to figure out that this is what happens when you give these animals the right to vote? They bomb churches, they burn down synagogues, and lynch Jews and Christians in the name of allah. They even do it to each other and blow up rival mosques. Do you really want any of ’em running a government? Only if you’re a moron . . . and you ultimately want to kill off all of your allies and commit suicide.
I’ve said it over and over. Democracy is not for Muslims. It is only for civilized people and nations. Of all people, the only person who seemed to get this aside from me was the execrable Jew-hater and Nazi apologist, Pat Buchanan. He gave it to Natan Sharansky in a “Meet the Press” debate. He pointed out the same things I had pointed out on this site: that in every single Muslim nation where there would be free elections, terrorist groups and their supporters would suddenly become elected, legitimate governments. That’s happened in Iraq, Gaza, and Lebanon, and it’s about to become fact in Tunisia, Egypt, and perhaps Algeria, Yemen, and Jordan. Muslim democracy isn’t good for the West. It’s only good for the defeat of the West. And don’t kid yourself–like ignoramus fantasists Scamela Geller and Caroline Glick–that the Iranian protesters who wanted “democracy” were any different than the extremist on the streets of Egypt and Tunisia (where they gladly hosted Arafat and the P.L.O. headquarters for years). They were not. They were just as radical, not unique in any way.
Whether or not there is a complete Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt or a coalition government with the sleazy, lying Mohammed El-Baradei, one of the most inept, most Islamo-co-opted U.N. nuclear weapons inspectors ever, makes no difference. Egypt is basically lost. If the Muslim Brotherhood–which brought us Arafat, HAMAS, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, and Al-Qaeda–doesn’t take over today, it will ultimately take over.
If we had not pushed democracy in places like Iraq and Lebanon and Gaza, perhaps we wouldn’t have the uprising in Egypt and elsewhere today. I predicted, years ago on this site, that this would be a disaster. And, per usual, I am the Cassandra who warns, isn’t heeded, but is right, right, right.
We need more men like Iran’s Shah and King Hussein of Jordan–men of a more stable Mid-East’s yesteryear–running Islamic nations. They were pro-American, pro-Western, and knew how to end rebellion by radicals.
In 1970, when Palestinian Muslims–who are the majority in Jordan–were led by Yasser Arafat to hold an uprising in that country, the late King Hussein knew exactly how to deal with them. He slaughtered 10,000 of them–10,000 Palestinian Muslims who worshipped Arafat. It’s called, “Black September.” He got away with it because Muslims can get away with butchering each other to hold power the way Jews never can in the name of security and self-preservation. But back in September 1970, King Hussein knew how to deal with his national livestock populus. Had he not done this, the P.L.O. would have run Jordan, and it would have been King Yasser using the place as a base of war against Israel. And the world barely said a word. Today, I wonder what the world would say if King Hussein were running things in Egypt that way. If it were up to me, we’d say to Mubarak, “do what you gotta do,” and look the other way. But, hey, “smarter” people are in charge . . . like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, who are botching this beyond the botchable.
Where is King Hussein when you need him? Sadly, six feet under. Like Hussein, Hosni Mubarak should have bombed the heck out of the rioters on the streets. Heck, they (the “democracy” rioters) burned down enough buildings, themselves–and that’s not to mention their looting. But, sadly, in our “humane,” “reform-minded,” “democracy-pimping” ways, we in the West would never tolerate the kind of response that is needed–the only kind of response that the Muslims in the Mid-East understand: bombs, killings, and annihilation. This is a war. And it’s not a war between Mubarak and his people. It’s a war between tolerable, authoritarian semi-pro-Western Muslim leaders and the extremist Muslims who dominate the Islamic world and people today. It was always clear to anyone who knows anything about the Middle East (and far fewer truly know about the Middle East than profess to) that, once you push for free elections in these places, you give a legal platform for terrorists to take over the entire region via free elections.
President Bush always told us that with his free elections in Iraq, the rest of the Middle Eastern people would see this and push for democratic elections.
How sad that he didn’t see that this is exactly the problem.
As for the tentative, artificial “peace” and associated peace treaty, Egypt has with Israel, you can say good-bye to that. Even Mubarak openly said he wasn’t bound by it and could violate it whenever he wanted, as when Israel wasn’t allowed into the International Book Fair in Cairo. But, now, or in a decade or two–whenever the Brotherhood completely reigns–it’s over.
Doesn’t bother me, as many fewer were killed when Israel had de facto “peace” while “at war” with Egypt. And the country basically gave up the Sinai and its oil to Egypt–and ultimately to the Brotherhood–for nothing.
If ever there was evidence that peace treaties are worth less than the paper they are written on, the current goings-on in Egypt are it.
