    GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas has lauded positions held by newly named Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi.

    Arabi had written an article for the Egyptian Al Shurooq newspaper on February 19 criticizing the country's foreign policy during the term of his predecessor Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, and strongly condemning the blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip.

    ”Egyptian foreign policy should not be characterized with major violations of fundamental principles in international law, such as the position Egypt has taken towards the siege imposed on the Gaza Strip,” the article reads.

    1. Developments in Egypt: There are representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood in the group that is writing a constitution for Egypt…and their input will produce an Islamist document.Egypt’s Writing of A New Constitution Holds Little or No Room for Egyptian Chrisitans and Women | Chandler's Watch

    a. In a Friday sermon delivered by Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, perhaps the leading current intellectual force behind the Muslim Brotherhood, the imam delivered a blistering diatribe to an estimated crowd of 1M gathered at Tahrir Square, Cairo, urging war with Israel and conquest of Jerusalem. Sheikh Al-Qaradawi, Friday Prayers In Tahrir Square - "Pray-by PipeLineNews.org

    b. Two important things happened during Qaradawi’s appearance in Cairo. First, his handlers refused to allow Google’s Egyptian Internet revolutionary Wael Ghonim to join the cleric on the dais. For anyone willing to notice, Qaradawi’s message in spurning Ghonim was indisputable. As far as the jihadists are concerned, Ghonim and his fellow Internet activists are the present day equivalent of Lenin’s useful idiots. Our World: The Westhttp://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Columnists/Article.aspx?id=210244

    c. In an ominous sign of things to come in Egypt, Christians were called upon during Friday’s service held in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, to bow down and submit to Allah….the words can only mean one thing; that Christians must bow down and submit to Allah and eventually live under Sharia rule. Tahrir Square

    2. The Obama administration has supported the defeat of regimes allied with the United States, with a view toward more popular governments. Rumor has it he is pressing the Saudis to allow a constitutional monarchy, consistent with the following: “The calls came after several petitions from intellectuals and activists were addressed to King Abdullah urging him to introduce major reforms, including establishing a constitutional monarchy, allowing elections and improving women rights.” Saudi interior ministry says protests illegal - Yahoo!

    GAZA, (PIC)-- Palestinian premier Ismail Haneyya congratulated his Egyptian counterpart Isam Sharaf on winning the confidence of the Egyptian people and wished his government every success in serving its people and restoring Egypt's leading role in the region.

    During phone conversation with Sharaf on Monday evening, premier Haneyya expressed his confidence that the Egyptian leadership and government would work on lifting the blockade on Gaza and open the Rafah border crossing.

    The Palestinian premier expressed hope that Egypt would rise stronger and more successful following the popular uprising.

    For his part, the Egyptian premier expressed his thanks to Haneyya for his phone call and highlighted his support for the Palestinian people's rights and aspirations.

    If Egypt becomes an Islamic theocracy they can kiss their tourism industry goodbye, think about it how many people are living up to vacation in Iran?

    1. Egypt…in an Islamist theocracy wanting tourism? I think not.


    a. In 1981, President Sadat was assassinated by an Islamist cell in the Egyptian army.

    b. While the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated and dominated the professional guilds, such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc., it oversaw the birth of two more radical branches, the Islamist Group of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, and the Islamic Jihad of Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri: the wanted nothing to do with modernity, so, of course, they murdered secular intellectuals.

    c. They also launched repeated violent attacks on Coptic Christians. And tourists, such as the massacre of 58 tourists at Luxor in ’97.d. Searching for Jews to attack, they thought a group of 18 Greek tourists in Cairo were Jews, and were duly massacred. Such is the urge to cleanse Muslim lands of foreign impurities.

    e. Not actually in Egypt, Sheikh Rahman had fled to Brooklyn, where he conceived of a new hobby, murdering New Yorkers randomly.

    2. In the early ‘50’s, Qutb had abandoned his original, traditional idea that jihad was a defensive struggle, in favor of a more radical and aggressive notion that jihad was a struggle for all mankind. Al Qaeda picked up on this and launched a global struggle. Fitting, as Qutb had spoken against the narrow notion of Arab nationalism, and for a broader notion of Islam. Moreover, Qutb had declared that all but a few Muslims were jahili barbarians, making it open season on the main Muslim powers.
    The above from Berman's book, "Terror and Liberalism."

    I shouldn't be spreading ironies, but the psychotic hatred people have of the US/UK and the west in Libya is going to cost them their freedom. By the time a no-fly zone is put in place Ghadaffi will have likely won. :cuckoo:
