Well, we all remember how the liberal media acted as cheerleaders for what they chose to define as “an Arab Spring”. So, how’s that working it for you in Egypt?
Egypt’s PM has appealed for calm after 24 people were killed as clashes between Coptic Christians and security forces escalated into full-scale riots. The violence broke out after a protest in Cairo against an attack on a church in Aswan province last week.
Oh yes, the burning of a Christian Church. Watch it burn, baby.
I know what you’re thinking, just a little bit of over enthusiasm but by and large, Egypt is getting better all the time.
“Christian student Ferial Habib was stopped at the doorstep of her new high school with clear instructions: either put on a headscarf or no school this year. Habib refused. While most Muslim women in Egypt wear the headscarf, Christians do not, and the move by administrators to force a Christian student to don it was unprecedented. For the next two weeks, Habib reported to school in the southern Egyptian village of Sheik Fadl every day in her uniform, without the head covering, only to be turned back by teachers.”
In fairness she WAS eventually allowed to attend the school without a scarf but these are early days and Sharia is being gradually deployed. Those western liberals who think that Sharia Lite is an option will be in for a mighty surprise except they won’t be the people subjugated by it.
When I was on TV a few weeks ago, and stated that where some in the media see an Arab Spring – an allusion to the Prague Spring of 1968 – all I see is Islam resurgent – the interviewers eyes widened in horror at the very idea of what I was suggesting! But day by day, the reality on the ground indicates that anyone expecting some sort of western neo-Jeffersonian democracy with gay rights and a charter for feminism, is being erased.
