It is, after all, the natural yearning of the soul. No one wants to be told what to do, or how to live their life.
It is why America was founded. We threw off the shackles of King George III and became the world’s most productive society. A quick look at our accomplishments shows that no other nation has done so much to elevate the situation of mankind than us. We have a proven track record of success.
Which is why I support freedom for the Egyptian people. Even though things could be better here in the good old US of A, we’ve still got it pretty good. We have our problems, which we are currently in the process of resolving as we always have. I’d be a real hypocrite if I didn’t think everyone should live the way we live here.
If the Egyptian people choose to have open elections, they have the potential to secure the blessings of freedom. However, with this potential comes a danger. There’s a group poised to take a leadership role in their government that is troubling, the Muslim Brotherhood, which has as its stated goal the implementation of Sharia law and the destruction of Western civilization.
“The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in
eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its
miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and
God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Even more troubling is the Obama administration’s support for this group.
We have a voice in the choice of the Egyptian people. We’ve seen revolutions in the Mideast before, most notably in Iran in 1979. The violence against the US resulted in the imprisonment and torture of Americans for 444 days. It’s been reported that one of those instrumental in that barbaric act is now the president of Iran. Years of oppression under that regime led to violent protests in 2009.
So it seems that Islamic republics are not the answer either. One simple truth remains: no one is free under Sharia law. In this case, the word “law” is very descriptive of the type of control that Sharia imposes. The penalty for the slightest violation, such as criticism of sharia itself, is death.

If Obama were truly sincere in his wish for freedom, he would say that we would not support any government that has any faction of the Muslim Brotherhood in it. That would be a gesture that would place the US squarely on the side of freedom, as we should be, at all times and in all places.
The fact that he’s even considering talking to this virulent anti-American group half a world away should concern each and every one of us for one simple reason – this group supports, and is actively engaged in, the destruction of Western civilization and is active here in the US.
So, the question arises, why? Why, Mr. President, do you appear to support an openly hostile group, organized with the expressed purpose of overthrowing our own government and destroying our way of life?
