Discussion in 'Middle East - General' started by jillian, Jan 29, 2011.
BBC Global News is tweeting
If Fundamentalists seize control in Egypt the Middle East is in trouble.
i know. it would be very sad.
Power to the people.
If the dictatorship of Mubarak were to fall, it would lead to free&fair elections after a small period of interim government.
I think, that everyone in the world is sympathizing with the Arabs standing up against their regimes. Except for Washington-Americans and Israelis who would be forced to re-negotiate arrangements with a truly democratic government-system establishing itself in those countries.
'Pacta sunt servanda' not really, if those arrangements were formed by a dictatorship, which is being bombed out of power by its own people.
BBC Twitter is old, the incident happened on January 25th.
yeah, let egypt turn into fundie lunatic bin like iran, right?
thanks... i'll take BBC and breaking news' word for it. it was tweeted an hour ago.
But at the tweet stands #Jan25, and I have reported it also on Jan27 in another thread.
To the rest:
Let Egyptians decide what they want to make out of their country. It is them who live their and finance it via their taxes.

Vox Populi in EgyptCaliphate Dreams and Strict Sharia
January 28th, 2011 by Andrew Bostom
A sobering reminderbased upon hard datafrom an essay of mine published in April, 2007:American Thinker: The Muslim Mainstream and the New Caliphate
In a rigorously conducted face-to-face University of Maryland/ WorldPublicOpinion.org interview survey of 1000 Egyptian Muslims conducted between December 9, 2006 and February 15, 2007, 67% of those interviewed-more than 2/3, hardly a fringe minority-desired this outcome (i.e., To unify all Islamic countries into a single Islamic state or Caliphate).
The internal validity of these data about the present longing for a Caliphate is strongly suggested by a concordant result: 74% of this Muslim sample approved the proposition To require a strict [emphasis added] application of Sharia law in every Islamic country.
actually, my quote had it date-stamped at jan 25th, but it was just re-tweeted.
you just like this because you think it screws the US and Israel. And it might... but the world isn't a better place if a bunch of islamoterrorists take control of egypt.
and it isn't just egypt...it's yemen, too. (not that yemen isn't already a terrorist loony bin). but this is the danger in places where the poor are kept poor and ignorant.
He also fails to consider the fact that if Fundamentalist seize power in Egypt and Yemen and want a Caliphate that INCLUDES Turkey.
