I could not believe this headline when I read it, Arab Spring Run Amok: 'Brotherhood' Starts Crucifixions. Crucifixions? Are you kidding? No. According to WND radical Muslims have begun crucifying those opposed to Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi. Naked. On trees in front of the presidential palace.
I could not believe what I was seeing so I searched about a bit and found other articles reporting the same news. Apparently the victims can be anyone with extra brutality reserved for Christians.
Well, here we go again. Savagery in the name of religion. It seems it's not only a normal part of Islamic doctrine but obligatory according to the Quran. Therefore the Muslim brotherhood is obliged to include it in their legal code in order to comply with Shariah.
We've long known the Muslims are bound to wage war against Christians who in many instances are synonymous with the west. Us. Are we not a 'Christian' nation?
Israel is in trouble because they thwarted an attack by Hamas trying to cross into Gaza. Morsi used this as an excuse to purge the top ranks of the military, those who were fighting to preserve some degree of sanity.
We sit here taking no stand on the slaughter that continues in Syria. We have taken a back seat to the entire theater of war that has been going on in the middle east for years, giving thumbs up to dictators who we declare redeemable but who never are. Mubarak. Ghadafi. Al Assad. Karzi. Now Morsi. We only give the thumbs down when it's apparent they can't extract themselves from the destruction they reigned down upon themselves. Why is this?
I know the country is tired of war. We get into them for all the wrong reasons and stay out of them for the same. Our foreign policy is floundering if indeed we have any. Leading from behind is not a policy. Or is it? That makes it even worse.
Morsi is instituting a reign of terror to consolidate his power. He will be attending a summit in Iran this month. That does not bode well. He has an invitation to visit the White House in September. They will try to convince us he is a moderate. One more monster we wanted to see in power.
All I can do is ask why? What are we thinking? Al Assad is slaughtering his own people by the tens of thousands. Morsi is having his opposition crucified. This is pure evil. Period. Yet we neither hear it, see it nor speak it.
We give Israel the cold shoulder, leaving them to fend for themselves. We welcome these governments with open arms. Something is drastically wrong. We are the west. We are mostly Christian. We are targeted. Don't ever think we're not. Just look at the number of our soldiers being murdered by the Afghans who we're training and providing with the very weapons they use.
Somehow, in the grand scheme of things, I could care less what Mitt Romney paid in taxes the last ten years or whether or not he releases that information. You want something taxing to worry about? Consider the future as the countries of the middle east fall like dominoes to the Islamic radicals. Consider too, these monsters are beginning to be put into office by their own people.
What will we be putting into office? Better yet, what have we put into office?
