Allen West,Tom Rooney Not Surprised With Islamist Power Grab in Egypt

by Javier Manjarres

With Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi seizing almost absolute power in his country, was there ever any question this would be the end result when President Barack Obama initially forced Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak out of power?  

Looking back in hindsight, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the so-called “Arab Spring” was nothing more than a syrupy public relations front by the Obama administration to euphemistically describe its new approach to the region- a policy that would have aims that run counter to what the United States has traditionally sought to promote in the region.  It appears that the aim of the Obama administration’s new approach was to undermine existing U.S. client-state regimes or dictatorships in the Middle East and pave the way for the ascendancy of the radical Muslim Brotherhood.  

Rioting continues in the streets of Egypt after Morsi’s supposed ‘temporary’ power grab, and now two of Egypt’s highest appeals courts have taken ‘the day off’ to protest  Morsi’s power grab-

“Suddenly Morsi is issuing laws and becoming the absolute ruler, holding all powers in his hands,” said protester Mona Sadek, a 31-year-old engineering graduate who wears the Islamic veil, a hallmark of piety. “Our revolt against the decrees became a protest against the Brotherhood as well.”-Fox News

“The Arab Spring has so far produced a Muslim Brotherhood dictator in Egypt, a civil war in Syria, and chaos in Libya that allowed al Qaeda to kill four Americans, including our ambassador.”-Congressman Tom Rooney (R-FL)

The terrorist-linked Muslim Brotherhood is not backing down from their position as Gehad el-Haddad, one of the organization’s senior advisors stated that “Morsi would not back down.” He also added, “We are not rescinding the declaration,” this according to the Associated Press-

Morsi says the decrees are necessary to protect the “revolution” and the nation’s transition to democratic rule.

His declaration made all his decisions immune to judicial review and banned the courts from dissolving the upper house of parliament and an assembly writing the new constitution, both of which are dominated by Islamists. The decree also gave Morsi sweeping authority to stop any “threats” to the revolution, public order or state institutions. The powers would last until the constitution is approved and parliamentary elections are held, not likely before spring 2013.-Fox News

Many experts on fundamentalist Islam believe that the near term goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is the establishment of a united Islamic superstate in the region, and from there, its master plan is Islamize western civilization.   

“Is there anyone who is a student of history, Islam or the Muslim Brotherhood who is NOT surprised by this?” – Congressman Allen West.
