Who is spying on us this week? I need to know if I should be expecting the FBI, CIA, Interpol or a delegation from the nearby Islamic cultural center.
Sami watches live TV from Egypt on the internet and also a daily videocast that expresses the viewpoint of those that overthrew Morsi today. We have two phone lines in the house and they have been burning up for the last few days. Sami has a network of like-minded Egyptian-Americans and they have all been positively glued to the minute by minute happenings in Egypt today.
Here’s your dose of reality: While it’s true that this is a big blow to the Moslem Brotherhood, don’t delude yourself into thinking that this is a move towards Peace Love And Understanding, or even tolerance. Theirs is still an Islamcentric society that has no use for anybody who is not Moslem. This is not democracy in action; this is mob rule backed by military power.
They have been and remain furious at the US not only for helping Morsi into power and opening the door for the MB but also for general support of Israel. When you see those photos of the banners that say OBAMA SUPPORTS TERRORISM, know that they are not going into storage once the MB slinks away to plot revenge – they’re still good for referencing Israelis.
In fact, by this time next week the democracy-loving people of Egypt will be back to killing Christians and raping American news reporters, possibly pulling off the public beheading of a Catholic Bishop as long as they’re at it.
