UNREST IN EGYPT AMIDST CONCERNS OVER ISLAMIC HARDLINERS

Associated Press….5-9-11

CAIRO – Deadly Muslim-Christian riots that left 12 dead and a Cairo church burned-burned out husk have magnified worries in Egypt over Islamic ultraconservatives who have grown more assertive since the fall of President Hosni Mubarak.  Egypt’s military rulers are stumbling over how to deal with them, reluctant to crack down and spark a backlash.

The clashes, according to press accounts were rooted in a small town over a personal dispute.  That quickly churned into a national crisis reflected the stormy politics shaking Egypt a a very fragile time. 

This is the reason that I have in the past, and continue to express concern over ultra conservative Islamic organizations who based on religious philosophy attempt to gain access to the political system in a persistent effort to control the whole of society.  This is how they would bring Islam to every nation, and eventually control an entire nations social structure.  The idea in its whole replaces a given countries constitutional law with Sharia laws.

Finally, the only ones in government or politics are those who support and live by Sharia law as well.

There is no counterbalance. It is all or nothing. I remind the readers to just look at the ever-growing problems in both France and Germany to get a hint of the progressive planning that is used by such groups. The overall effort, once again is the complete overthrow of the governmental system of the host country.  Before one knows it, he awakens to a new structure of law. That thing they called freedom no longer exists.

Mark my words, this is the direction that these people will take the United States if we continue to look the other way. Tolerance is fine. I have no problem with tolerance. believe as you want to believe. Worship the way you want to worship. However, if we are to agree on that, then Islamic believing persons must adapt to that same ideology.  That is not the case however. They are interested in overthrow.  For them, their religion must be the only religion and there is no other.

While the United States is not facing that situation right now. My concern is directed at the future.  We must develop policy and law that assures that such a situation does not happen here at home. Failure to do so today, might mean that the freedoms we cherish might not be a reality tomorrow.

That’s my point of view.  Have a great day, and remember to pray for the folks down South, our leaders and President as well.

As usual………God Bless America!

I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan.

I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
