Jimmy Carter v2.0: Obama and the possible fall of Egypt

Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. In this case, Obama knows full well about how Iran became a country ruled by hardliner Islamic fundamentalist. Since his supporters tag him as being the smartest person ever to become president, I will just take a leap of faith this once and assume they are right for the sake of me writing this. If Obama is as smart as advertised, then he should know about the historical comparison between Iranian pre Islamic rule and Egypt now. Once upon a time, the country of Iran was actually a friend to the United States thanks to the Shah of Iran. The Shah wasn't a perfect leader, but he kept order in Iran and the Islamic hardliners at bay. The U.S was one of the Shahs most power allies outside the Middle East. When Carter became president, that all changed, it also set into motion a chain of events that lead to not only the Shah being toppled from power, but it also lead to the Iranian Revolution in 1979 which lead the rise of the Grand Ayatollah Khomeini who assumed power. The scenario which lead to the fall of the Shah is similar to what Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is going through right now. Iran was experiencing high unemployment just like Egypt is right now. In 1978, Iranian protesters took to the streets. The Iranians claimed they wanted more freedoms just like the Egyptian protesters claim they want now. The Iranians claimed they wanted to root out corruption just like the Egyptian protesters claim they want now. With the example of Iran, the protesters never got what they wanted when the Shah's government was toppled. What they got was far worse then they've ever experienced under the Shah to this day. With the case of Egypt, many are speculating that the uprisings in Egypt and in other Middle Eastern countries over the past few weeks is being spearheaded by the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamic fundamentalist group that has been trying to seize power for many years.

If indeed the TMB are ones pulling the strings in this "uprising", it could end in a repeat of 1979 Iran. Carter wanted to be seen as being on the side of the Iranian people back in 78. Obama wants to be seen as being on the side of the Egyptian people in 2011. Last year Obama went to Cairo Egypt and gave a speech to the Muslim world. A stable non Islamic extremist country is crucial to the security of the State of Israel. There is no debate. If the Muslim Brotherhoods fills the political vacuum and assumes power, all hell practically is going to break lose in the Middle East. If Obama is smart as those of his supporters claim, he should be well aware of the consequences of the collapse of Mubarak's government. The ramification to not just Israel but to western nations can't even really be calculated. If the Muslim Brotherhood takes over power in Egypt, they will be able to control the Suez Canal. The Suez Canal is a major distribution channel which allows the fastest crossing from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. If the Suez wasn't accessible, that could add 12 days of travel time as tankers would have to sail around southern Africa as a detour. This would put a huge strain on oil inventories and would definitely cause the price of gasoline to rise. Obama's dopey Press Secretary Robert Gibbs opened his mouth and said something that can't be taken back about Obama's stance on the Egyptian protests. Gibbs said the "U.S wants an orderly TRANSITION in Egypt". Gibbs later went on to say "I do believe orderly transition means change". Ok, transition doesn't mean change? When a new president is elected, the first thing the NEW president elect is involved in is picking a "TRANSITION TEAM". So transition does mean "change" regardless of what the dopey Pillsbury doughboy says. By him saying that the U.S wants an orderly transition, he has basically stated that Obama has officially thrown Mubarak under the bus. If Egypt goes the way of Iran, this will be a huge foreign policy black eye for Obama. This will not be able something that can be to be laid at the feet of George Bush or Sarah Palin. This will be all on him. Obama has a nack for snubbing his nose and turning his back on our friends and allies around the globe.
He's no friend to Israel

He's not really fond of the British

e lashed out at the government of Honduras for upholding their constitution in preventing a power grab by their former president Zelaya who was backed by Hugo Chavez.

Liberals don't really believe Islamic Extremism exists in the first place. Obama can't even bring himself to utter the words "Islamic Terrorists" Does anyone expect Obama to really be concerned if the Muslim Brotherhood takes over in Egypt? I don't.

From Renee:
Well said, Tyrone. This latest episode in Egypt is simply a sign of the times. The bottom line is that Islam is not a religion, rather it's a hateful organization that calls for the death of the "infidel"! Be it Christian, Jew or other. The sad fact is, that most Americans are truly naive when it comes to understanding the true nature of its doctrines.
Even worse, is watching notable figures such as the late Pope John Paul II, President Bush and Mayor Bloomberg, carrying on with the fallacious mantra that "Islam is a religion of peace", so as to ward off any kind animosity by muslims, which may cause retaliation. What kind of positive reinforcement are you suppose to walk away with, in regards to this useless effort?
The saddest thing is turning on the television and witnessing a steady stream of amateurish commentators, both conservative and liberal, welcoming a handful of ivy-league, educated Arab-Americans, currently residing in the predominately Christian, United States, offering their opinions on why Americans should practice tolerance by muslims.
As I mentioned before, the terms "extremist" and "moderate" when applied to Muslims is simply an oxymoron. Can you imagine, any one of these enlightened, commentators, attaching these two terms to the followers of the Ku Klux Klan?
Yes, I could just imagine them, circa-1955, calling on all so- called "moderate" Klansman, you know, the ones who fancied themselves as good Christians, while regularlly attending weekly church services, only to race down the block, to gawk at the effigy of black man, strung up in a tree and lynched!
Yes, this was a common activity, which should have encouraged a "moderate" klansman, to dissuade his "extremist" klansman brethen, from remaining an active member of an organization, once dominated by "patriotic" Americans! Do the math!

The Left is oblivious to the danger posed by the Moslem Brotherhood... but only becuase they consider them allies in the "war" against capitalism.

Tyrone, after years of warning everyone I could, Islam is doing exactly what I said and more.

The Muslim Brotherhood met in Oak Lawn, Ill. in 2009 at the Hilton and said they want Sharia Law to replace the conatitution, which means blacks will be re enslaved and laughed at.

The Muslim Brotherhood own the student group MAS taking over colleges because of PC. Because Blacks are too dumb to know better, Islam has made them braindead that they accept slavery. Arabs hide the real truth, that calls blacks stupid, less than a donkey's penis, blacks are created to be slaves to whites and then go to hellfire. Only white Muslims get the 72 big breasted white women and 28 white boys who dont bleed. The Quran says blacks are cursed and whites are blessed-Quran 3:106. No Chinese either.

Obama knows what is going on and he knowns how to engage democracy until it is no klonger useful. Whites are afraid to tell the truth for fear of being called a racist.

Islam hates black people and Obama didnt read either. His wife is called in Islam ugly, black, nappy headed abed or slave. Yet he still falls for Islamic values. Never would white Muslims vote for a black man as no black Muslims are even allowed to attend the famous school in Egypt.

an African, ans the first thing she said was the colonist from Europe is responsibility. I told her North Arabic is Arabic since the 7th century, and the Euroopeans didnt come to Africa until the 14th century. The Arab Muslims had beaten the butts of the blacks and forced Islam on them otherwise it was death. 300 million Blacks Africans were castrated, killed, and enslaved from the 7th century to the 14th century, and from then the Europeans bought Blacks from the Arab Muslims and captured with the help of the conquered tribes who did the castrating for the Arabs.

Genocide was recently carried out
Arab Muslims with the help of Black Muslims, who are now being killed by the same Arab Muslims who used them to kill 2 million Blacks from the south Sudan.

In America the Arabs are still doing the same with black Muslims in America. Farrakhan and NOI have been put out of Arabic Islam
yet he says nothing. Every black I
ask and show them the Islamic book they have never seen, they look so sad. Most come back and say I didnt know this. I then tell them to eith buy the book Religious Bullying, by Raisin Head at Amazon.com or Barnes and Nobles and get the full details.
Also write and ask questions to:

Did you know about this Conservative Blog: http://lamecherry.blogspot.com/ , I guess people like you who are astute at politics must know about it, it seems to be a real popular blog.

Right now, on the posts for today, February 1st, there is that picture it looks like from India and the man looks, looks like Obama but I can't clearly tell for the President Kahn or President Con article. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_3xyJDLYT0Bg/TUTvN3vAKBI/AAAAAAAAHVo/LpAvPIfjD3Q/s400/shah-rukh-khan%2527s-wedding-with-gauri.jpg <--- The picture

I don't endorse this blog Lame Cherry , I don't quite know what to make of it and you can do a google search "Who writes Lame Cherry" and that's the thing, it's a mystery. To me it sounds a bit like G. Gordon Liddy, one article says the blog may be written in a cryptic way to camouflage who really writes it. Then, another person told me, a woman writes it and yeh, with a name like Cherry you could think that but also, seeing the pictures of women, I thought, hmmmn, maybe G. Gordon Liddy but I've seen other posts saying "he or she"... who in the H knows and there are tons and tons of these postings at that website. The early ones not real spectacular but the current ones seem to be. Also, whoever this person is talks about the Rothchilds which is a bit like saying a secret government rules or is in power, that is to say the Banks rule, kind of conspiratorial stuff.

Nothing important to get informed about but thought I'd pass this on.

First off, your essay doesn't pose "your" solution, what the official U.S. policy should be, or what you believe the President should do.

CB;"The scenario which lead to the fall of the Shah is similar to what Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is going through right now. Iran was experiencing high unemployment just like Egypt is right now".

Not really factual. The unemployment rate in Iran before the 1978 revolution was NO WHERE nearly as high as the unemployment rate presently is in Egypt.

"The revolution was unusual for the surprise it created throughout the world, it lacked many of the customary causes of revolution (defeat at war, a financial crisis, peasant rebellion, or disgruntled military)".

Secondly, the Iranian revolution was guided by an known opposition group. It evolved over several months beginning with demonstrations, then worker strikes leading up to the Shahs overthrow in early 1979. Whereas the Egyptian revolt seems to have been inspired by the Tunisian uprising.

The anti-American sentiment was present from the very beginning of the revolution in Iran. By late 1979 students who called themselves "Muslim Student Followers of the Imam's Line" stormed the American embassy taking Americans hostage, demanding that the U.S. return the Shah.

CB;"The Iranians claimed they wanted more freedoms just like the Egyptian protesters claim they want now".

The "freedom" that the Iranians wanted then is much different from what the revolting Egyptians are stating at the present. In 1978 America was being maligned by the demonstrators for supporting the ruling government. Thus far, the anti-American rhetoric is reportedly coming from the Mubarak (present government) supporters.

Mind you, the cast majority of those supporting the Iranian revolution called for the return of the Ayatollah and the installment of a Islamic republic. From whats being reported and shown from every news outlet, the Egyptians just want Mubarak out.

No one knows how this will turn out. Just hope for the best for Egypt and the rest of the world.

You are so right. The President of Turkey said it was an insult to call Muslims moderate. All Muslims are the same as he says. Islam means submissioin, and calls all Jews and Christins apes and pigs in the quran 5:60. All others are to die if they refuse Islam. 80 million Hindus were killed when Arabs and Persians invaded India. Kafirs they were called.

The book, Now they call me Kafir written by a Black South African, was the result of Gandhi carrying the Islamic teaching mixed with Hinduism to South Africa. He looked down on blacks as untouchables, under the caste systems of Africa and India. I have never heard of a moderate KKK or Nazi or Communist. Either you are or not. There are no moderate Christians, either you are or not. Trying to appease Muslims means your death. Muslims and tHe KKK told you to your faces they hate you and will kill you and all the elite politicians in America do is say they dont mean it. Remember Rosie O'Donnell a lesbian, who is to be killed under Islam. Whoopie would be slave and go to hellfire.

All who want to see the pyramids, better go now, cause the Muslims tried once, and failed. Now they will have freedom to do so. Pharoah was a Muslim they say in quran 10:90 lol.

There were Black Pharaohs too, there were the Nubians in this area, Blacks. Even when the Romans conquered Egypt, it was past the time of the height of the Egyptian civilization. I guess Alexandria, Egypt is named for Alexander the Great, a Greek but I don't know for certain. I respect the esteemed gentleman that shows us the ways of the radical Muslems. I must say I am not aware of the situation but supposedly many Muslems are peaceful. I have a friend from Egypt. He has no problem with Israelis and calls the ways of the Palestinians "crazy" and doesn't trust them, he married an American. My Egyptian friend though a practicing Muslem does not go to the local Mosque or Muslim center here. They are too cliquish he says. Yes, the problems are the radicals, I'd watch this situation, around January 1st, a Christian church in Egypt was bombed, about a dozen killed, when the Swine flu fears came, there were articles that Egypt was going to cull all pigs meaning slaughter all pigs as a way to prevent the swine flu and actually, that would have had nothing to do with preventing the disease from spreading. The ways of the Muslim radicals are extreme, can you believe Iran as of a week ago had already hanged 66 people?? And they hanged an Iranian women with Dutch citizenship http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-12317138 , Iran accuses here of being a drug smuggler but her family says it was because she was in the protests against the government and Netherlands has frozen relations with Iran.

Anwar Sadat was a former President of Egypt, to me, he looks more like a Black man than an Arabic. See Picture http://www.nfuu.org/D3%20Sadat.jpg and other ones show this distinction even better. I ended up meeting an Egyptian who looked more white than Arabic. But most Arabs I would think we kind of know what they look like. Yes, Jimmy Carter's administration did lots of wrong but maybe they are the ones that helped make the Camp David agreement between Egypt and Israel and since then there has been peace with maybe a few exceptions. Of course Carter and his Secretary of State Brezinski are often and apparently correctly called Anti-Semitic, more properly, Anti-Jewish because the Semites from what I am told are all of those kinds of peoples including the Arabs.

(continued, part 2, from Anon H1)

So, perhaps a number of Muslims are peaceful as I said above but still, I know many, mostly men do not condemn terrorist acts like 9/11 and other acts. This Egyptian girl at the bank seemed totally Westernized and that was before coming to the USA, she wore no Birka, was beautiful and I think was let go from working at the bank because it was not an easy task for her between English and that everything she knew was Arabic and the Arabic writing style. Poor thing. So, I tend to think a lot of Muslims are mainstream. You can youtube search "bellydancing in Egypt" and even find a few films. We certainly don't need the radicals, yes, who have brought a lot of murder say to Sudan. I understand that even in Sudan when one is saying the Muslims kill or the Arabs kill that actually the Northern Sudanese are still usually black people but are still called Arabs. Something like this. It isn't clear to me, I read one of the books by one of Sudan's "Lost boys" in the Dharfur region.

You know, I can read say Free Republic and there are some people who think all of Islam are bad. I'm just not so sure about it. Also, quite a few years ago I believe before the Iraq invasion and so it was before this Presidential administration, I've heard a rare instance of Arabs called the racial slur "Sand N-----s" on the web. Whomever would say this are despicable. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/07/07/AR2006070701155_pf.html This article shows it's use as well.

Egypt is arguably the most Arabic important nation because Egypt is about 80 million people, a ton of people, a ton of them as poor as can be but land of the Pyramid, it has a long long history and it is not all about Islam. They also have control of part of that Suez canal which I now everyone knows.
