For the last seven days Egypt has been embroiled in turmoil as citizens have come out into the streets in mass demonstrations in an open defiant effort to oust President Mabarack. The president has been in office since the assassination of Anwar Sadat. He has ruled with an iron fist. While people are free to do as they will in this massive country the one thing one does not engage in is opposition to the government.
In any social structure, if there are jobs, and people are living in a decent standard, and enjoy the basics of life, there is little complaint. apparently, this is not the case in Egypt. The net result has made this mostly arabic nation ripe for retaliation. These demonstrations going on in several arabic countries have been well-organized. As they go forward, out of no where it seems come the so-called moderate Islamic clerics who would bring change to an ailing nation.
At first, during the beginning of the street demonstrations in Ciro, religion, and clerics and open prayers as a form of demonstration were actually stopped. This is not about Islam demonstrators would cry, it is about Democracy, it is about freedom. In their eyes, this was true. However, all along, even as I watched the events in Tunisia unfold, as well as Lebonon, and now as it spreads to Jordan, I realized that this was all too well-organized. Too structured, well-managed. Something just did not, and still does not sit right with this thing. The use of the internet as the primary tool to whip up support for the cause. A cause I might add up that a mere few weeks ago did not exist. All of a sudden the whole country is ready to riot. What’s up?
The United states, like other more democratic nations, are caught off guard. They at first support the regime, and then they begin to sway away from their stand when they realize that this is far more serious than they thought. Now, today, The U.S. is near calling for Mabaracks immediate resignation. The official position now is That the United states calls for an orderly Democratic transition of power in Egypt.
Meanwhile, on day six, out trots the Islamic Brotherhood, an allegedly moderate Islamic order. They are ready to take control, and move the government in a better direction. How interesting, I thought, just the other day this had nothing to do with religion, it was all about freedom, and democracy, etc;. And now, I have even heard demonstrators calling for Sheaa law. Anything is better than what we have they say.
One way or the other Mabarack is going. The question is ……… Who will replace him.
And finally, why is it that I feel this thing is going just as it was planned?
Have a great day……… God Bless America.
