Arab Winter [Excerpts]
After making numerous phone calls and speaking to many Christian leaders in Egypt…I have learned that what is really happening on the ground is far removed from the television reporters' happy endorsement of democracy seekers. To describe what is really going on around the country as "barbaric" would be an understatement. While some of the protestors may be true democracy lovers, the widespread terrorism on display defies all human decency.
The truth about recent events in Egypt reveals that the country has disintegrated into a total anarchy and barbarianism that would make the Vikings blush.
Peaceful Christians are being beheaded in their own homes. Their possessions are being carried off as police either stand helplessly by or, for a portion of the booty, turn a blind eye. And surprise, surprise! Nearly all the victims of beheadings were Christians killed by Muslim fundamentalists.
Not only are the Egyptian Islamists poised to take over the country as a result of elections [the week of November 28], but these acts of terrorism are serving as propaganda tools to "prove" that they and they alone can bring order to the country with their Sharia law. So, for now at least, these terrorist acts reinforce their cause and agenda.
So much for President Obama's "Arab Spring." When history books are written truthfully, they will reveal that the President's speech in Cairo, one he insisted the Islamists attend, set this barbarism in motion.
Indecisive leadership kills innocent people and causes disasters. Take President Jimmy Carter's vacillating support for the Shah of Iran. In one breath, Carter would support the beleaguered leader, and in the next, he would praise the Iranian Revolution. That indecisiveness led to 52 Americans being taken hostage for 444 days inside the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.
