Part 2 The misery of Islam: Gulf, US split over Egypt is a US victory

 Gulf nations split with West to back Egyptian military:  On Monday, the country’s foreign minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal issued a hard-hitting statement via the Saudi Press Agency pushing back on the West.

“To those who have announced they are cutting their aid to Egypt, or threatening to do that, (we say that) Arab and Muslim nations are rich and will not hesitate to help Egypt,” said Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal, in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency. “Arab states will never accept manipulation of their fates or tampering with their security and stability by the international community.”

I want to put this in context: First I want to remind you that yesterday we discussed the success of the west since Industrialization has been accomplished largely on the backs, riches, and lands of Islam.

*With the advent of technicalization in the west an entirely different kind of Society was formed. a new ideal of humanity came about. This in turn would affect the perception of the nature and role of God. The newly industrialized and efficient west also changed the course of history. Other countries of the civilized world found it increasingly difficult to ignore the western world as it had in the past.

The Muslims as we know are still unable or unwilling to come to terms with it.No other civilization in the history of the world had achieved anything like this. The west therefore created problems that were completely new, and very difficult to deal with.

 *Until the eighteenth century Islam had been the dominant world power in much of the Middle East and Africa.

With that said, what is happening today in North Africa and the middle east is cyclical and normal. The people have had enough both of us taking their riches and doing their bidding and of the ruthless thugs that from the sweat of their downtrodden brow, have become ruthless, fat, and rich while the people suffer.

The terrible genie is out of the bottle: Since Bush and his failed Democratization program in Iraq and elsewhere in thee middle east, other Muslim Nation's have seen that it is possible for them to rise up against the ruthless dictators who have been facilitated by the west as they do their bidding.

This has been a confusing time for the west too. They need to appear to be on the people's side they think will be victorious so they can continue to benefit from Muslim oil. We saw this in Tunisia, Libya, Syria, and other Arab spring nations. Thi is not an Arab spring this is an Arab fall.

Every nation so far fighting for freedom has devolved into chaps. Egypt is no difference The wild card in all this is the Islamist's that will take the country the people have worked fought and died for and make the peoples plight worse than it was before.

I just want to point out that in the case of Egypt the US is once again trying to have their cake and eat it too. The US announced that it will be withholding the1.3 Billion it gives the military as long as the military continues to disrupt the "Democratically" elected Government.

First I have to  wonder what the hell is wrong with those people? They could have had their Democracy and freedom and they elected an Islamist as President. What the hell did they think would happen? Of course he would try to take over the government and be hard line with the people.

The people rebel, the Army unseats Morsi "which can't be done, and the US has to say they will no longer help the military. In steps the rescuer King Saud, another thug in our pocket who says "we are rich and will help our Arab brothers" You can bet the US made back deals and will still have Suez canal ans Egypt overflight rights when needed. Wait, watch, and listen!

Jim you really have to wonder about all this. There are more factors and players here than meets the eye. Seeing as how all that bad financial paper was sold around the world I have to wonder if there wouldn't have been an arab spring anyway Bush or not. Remember this was all started when a poor street merchant set himself on fire because he couldn't make a living. You note to that fast food workers here have taken to the streets. So this isn't just about politics or religion anymore.

The figures we're getting about unemployment here are false. The jobs created the last couple of years are low paying and those who's unemployment ran out are not even counted. The only ones who make out like bandits are the banks and wall street who continue to sell that bad paper. God help us when the other shoe drops and we're getting close.
