    Toward a Soft Landing in Egypt

    Toward a Soft Landing in Egypt

    Who doesn’t love a democratic revolution? Who is not moved by the renunciation of fear and the reclamation of dignity in the streets of Cairo and Alexandria?

    The worldwide euphoria that has greeted the Egyptian uprising is understandable. All revolutions are blissful in the first days. The romance could be forgiven if this were Paris 1789. But it is not. In the intervening 222 years, we have learned how these things can end.

    The Egyptian awakening carries promise and hope and of course merits our support. But only a child can believe that a democratic outcome is inevitable. And only a blinkered optimist can believe that it is even the most likely outcome.

    Yes, the Egyptian revolution is broad-based. But so were the French and the Russian and the Iranian revolutions. Indeed in Iran, the revolution only succeeded - the shah was long opposed by the mullahs - when the merchants, the housewives, the students and the secularists joined to bring him down.

    And who ended up in control? The most disciplined, ruthless and ideologically committed - the radical Islamists.

    This is why our paramount moral and strategic interest in Egypt is real democracy in which power does not devolve to those who believe in one man, one vote, one time. That would be Egypt’s fate should the Muslim Brotherhood prevail. That was the fate of Gaza, now under the brutal thumb of Hamas, a Palestinian wing (see Article 2 of Hamas’s founding covenant) of the Muslim Brotherhood.

  • The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and World Domination

    The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and World Domination

    After 17 days of demonstrations in Egypt, and 30 years of rule, President Hosni Mubarak has ended his dictatorship of Egypt. With the fall of the dictatorship of Egypt and the stepping down of Hosni Mubarak, we are going to see similar movements in other Arab nations in the coming months.

    There is great concern in Saudi Arabia that a parallel movement will begin shortly in their kingdom. The government leadership is Saudi Arabia is watching the events happening in Egypt today with great interest.

    The Society of the Muslim Brothers, also known as “Al-Ikhwān.” claims that they do not want a role in any new government of Egypt.

    According to their own definition, “The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist transnational movement and the largest political opposition organization in many Arab States.”

    Founded in 1928 in Egypt by the Islamic scholar and schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna. It is the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood to make the Qu’ran and Sunnah the rule of law and governing authority for the entire world.

    Using the Qu’ran as their governing authority, the Brotherhood believes that they have “The Perfect Way of Life” by controlling government and societies with Islamic Government. Their ultimate stated goal is to unify the world in a “Caliphate’, which is an all out and total control of every facet of life by Islam and the Qu’ran. Under Caliphate the Islamic rule seeks world-wide domination of every country and nation.

    Muslim Brotherhood: ‘Do Not Want Control of Egypt’

    Muslim Brotherhood: ‘Do Not Want Control of Egypt’

    Representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt said they do not want to take over but merely want to be a part of government, CNN reported Wednesday.

    “The Muslim Brotherhood is not seeking power,” an official said speaking at a press conference. “We will not have a presidential candidate, we want to participate and help, we are not seeking power,” according to the report.

    In a move intended to distance the movement from allegations that it is an extremist group, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood’s parliamentary bloc, Mohammed Katatny, said: “We reject the religious state.”

    “We are not responsible for the speeches and statements of external forces.” Katatny added, “The regime has been using the Muslim Brotherhood scarecrow to tell the world that the regime is the only one who can safeguard the country, but this is wrong and it is their way to try to ignore the people’s demands,” CNN reported.

  • Egyptian Crisis Centers on Israel’s Security

    Egyptian Crisis Centers on Israel’s Security

    As we watch the events unfold in Egypt and the uncertainty of their future government, we are directed to the question of how Egypt’s instability will affect Israel’s security in the future.

    If you live in Israel today you have to be concerned that Egypt will take the same course that Iran took some 30 years ago. Once the radical Islamic leadership took power in Iran their stated purpose was to insure that Israel found her destruction.

    A turning from being friendly towards Israel to that of an enemy of Israel is one of the possible outcomes of the current uprising in Egypt. When the dust settles will the new government of Egypt maintain a non aggressive position towards Israel? How many other Arab nations will join the uprising and form new governments hostile towards Israel as a result of Egypt’s revolution?

    This morning the King of Jordan announced a complete reorganization of his government. King Abdullah has so far been a neutral Arab nation having been placed by God at Israel’s close Eastern border. Similar moves are occurring in many other Arab nations as a result of the people of Egypt revolutionizing their country.

    The neutrality of Jordan and Egypt in the past was one of the primary factors that have contributed to the safety and security of Israel. The United States has paid billions of dollars every year to these friendly Arab nations to insure their cooperation in Israel’s security.

    From a prophetic view, when the battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 begins, two of the Arab nations that are not mentioned as coming to attack Israel are Jordan and Egypt. Jordan is mentioned as the single place of safety for the Jews fleeing Israel during the reign of the antichrist. In the book of Isaiah God requests that Jordan shelter His “outcasts from the hand of the spoiler…”

    Isaiah 16:4 “Let My outcasts dwell with you, O Moab; Be a shelter to them from the face of the spoiler…”

    Beginning at the mid-way point of the Great Tribulation, the Jews in Israel will have the veil removed that currently covers their eyes and prevents them from seeing that Jesus is their Messiah. When the antichrist announces that he is God and that all the world should worship him, the Jews will flee Israel for Petra in the nearby nation of Jordan. It is there in Jordan that the antichrist is forbidden by God to capture that nation or do any harm to the Jews being sheltered there.

    Egypt, History and the Bible

    Egypt, History and the Bible

    God has intervened into the affairs of mankind many times. The original King James Bible faithfully records these events. And it is always exciting to discover archaeological remains that increase our understanding of these historical events. It is a tragic fact that many “secular” records have been found that totally confirm history as presented in the Bible but portions of these have been intentionally destroyed or hidden by “scholars” (evolutionists\atheists) who take it upon themselves to “manage” archaeological evidence to suit their own deceptive purposes. The Turin Papyrus, which was prepared in the late 18th dynasty and included lists of all the kings of every dynasty of ancient Egypt through the 18th, was found in a temple excavation during the 19th century. The King of Sardinia carefully preserved it and entrusted it to some “scholars” at Turin for translation. It arrived in perfect condition but the “scholars” destroyed or hid most of it because they realized that it proved the “long dynastic” history of Egypt to be untrue. To “explain” the “changed condition” of the papyrus, they accused the king of Sardinia of sending it “unwrapped”. The Palermo Stone contained a similar list, and while many “scholars” quote from “missing parts” of the stone, “unapproved researchers” can only have access to a few fragments. It is obvious that the stone was “broken” recently as all inner edges of the fragments show recent fracture conditions.

    A leading “archaeologist” on the board of B.A.R. once said to me in the presence of Mary Nell, ” Your problem, Ron, is that you excavate a location to see what is there; you should decide what you want to be there first and then make it turn out that way”. Mary Nell had refused to believe me when I told her that this is what archaeologists do. She was shocked to hear it “from the horse’s mouth”.

    Those of you who like to “dig” through history books might wish to read ARCHAIC EGYPT by W.B. Emery-Penguin Books Reprint 1984. This author is one of the rare few who admit how truly limited our knowledge of ancient Egypt is: “Unfortunately, our knowledge of the archaic hieroglyphs is so limited that reliable translation of these invaluable texts is at present beyond our power and we can only pick out odd words and groups which give us only the vaguest interpretations.” (p. 59.) Yet, in the majority of books, translations and conclusions are never stated as being theory; they are stated as firm fact.

    Egypt Shuts Down the Internet

    Egypt Shuts Down the Internet

    IDG News Service - “When countries block, we evolve,” an activist with the group We Rebuild wrote in a Twitter message on Friday.

    That’s just what many Egyptians have been doing this week, as groups like We Rebuild scramble to keep the country connected to the outside world, turning to landline telephones, fax machines and even ham radio to keep information flowing in and out of the country.

    Although one Internet service provider — Noor Group — remains in operation, Egypt’s government abruptly ordered the rest of the country’s ISPs to shut down their services just after midnight local time Thursday. Mobile networks have also been turned off in some areas.

    The blackout appears designed to disrupt organization of the country’s growing protest movement, which is calling for the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

    “[B]asically, there are three ways of getting information out right now — get access to the Noor ISP (which has about 8% of the market), use a land line to call someone, or use dial-up,” Jillian York, a researcher with the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, said via e-mail.

    Egyptians with dial-up modems get no Internet connection when they call into their local ISP, but calling an international number to reach a modem in another country gives them a connection to the outside world.
