I posted yesterday that I thought Sharia was coming soon to both Egypt and Libya. Some commentators on ATW – those seriously lacking in common sense – seemed to think that I was wrong. Outraged, they claimed  I lacked hard, cold evidence.

Here (ht: Drudge):

“Earlier this month, al-Qaeda issued a call for supporters to back the Libyan rebellion, which it said would lead to the imposition of “the stage of Islam” in the country.

British Islamists have also backed the rebellion, with the former head of the banned al-Muhajiroun proclaiming that the call for “Islam, the Shariah and jihad from Libya” had “shaken the enemies of Islam and the Muslims more than the tsunami that Allah sent against their friends, the Japanese”.

  1. Patty,
    Only time will tell if the Muslim Brotherhood do manage to hijack this secular revolution in Egypt. If you look at what has happened in Iran since the fall of the Shah, the Islamic clerics have managed to keep control of the people, even though it is obvious their educated classes want more freedom.
    Perhaps the problem is that beyond wanting more freedom the protesters have no clear idea of how that can be effectively delivered by their government…
    Whereas the Muslim Brotherhood is highly organized, and know what they want tro achieve.
    Did you see the Veena Malik clip?
    I thought she was incredibly brave, and it must be heartening to know that there are individuals like her who are willing to speak out in such a male dominated society.

    Consider for example how Senator McCarthy was able to cow so many Americans into submission during his anti Communist crusade. Many in the film industry were afraid to speak out..

  2. >>Outraged, they claimed I lacked hard, cold evidence.<<

    Patty, what you've put up now is anything but "hard, cold evidence" for what you claim.

    And really you should make up your mind on who you'd like to think is behind the Arab revolts. A few weeks ago, it was Iran, then the Muslim Brotherhood, now Al Qaeda!
    Each time of course you had no evidence – hard, cold or otherwise.

    The main interest of all the right-wing chorus here is of course not who's behind this or the other revolts, not that it will cost cash nor western lives, but simply that it will damage Pesident Obama.

    Thus, before the US got involved on the side of the rebels, David was complaining

    "The US seems determined NOT to get involved in any military sense based on the measly comments from Robert Gates so it looks like the Libyan rebels are on their own. Meanwhile the UN squeaks and makes its usual inanities even as its very own Human Rights Council contains…Libya."

  3. Noel: Obama is a side show in the Middle East.

    The lame stream media has romanticized the tobbling of Mubarak, and now the rebellions against Ghadaffi. Why?

    The Left – yourself included – seem happy to turn a blind eye to the installation of totalitarianism under Sharia – as long as the USA is reduced in stature and loses hegemony in the ME.

    That’s all you and the Left really seem to care about – all is forgiven as long as America loses some power.

    At least be honest with yourself.

  4. >>as long as the USA is reduced in stature and loses hegemony in the ME.<<

    Patty, WHAT on earth are you talking about?

    The US has no "hegemony" in the ME simply because of a few places like Libya and Syria – two places whose anti-US dictators could well be overthrown by the rebel movement which we – your "Left" – support.
    There is absolutely no likelihood – apart from in tea-potty land – of an alternative government in either country being more hostile to the West than the present set-up is.

    This all must be one of the looniest tunes you've ever hummed.
