Did “Hope and Change” Mean “Allah Akbar”?

“Genuine democracy will carry the day.”

Barack Obama, February 2011

See additional comments on Tea Party Nation.

One year later, we can look back at this turning point in history. The support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt by our leadership in Washington has now resulted in their control of the Egyptian parliament. Today (February 9, 2012), the Muslim Brotherhood has called for a new Egyptian government to be led by a Brotherhood prime minister. Welcome to Sharia Law in Egypt and another dressed stone in the foundation of the new Islamic Caliphate.

As the United States (or more accurately, the Obama administration) supports this new “democracy” in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and now Syria, we are seeing that “hope and change” really meant “Allah Akbar”.

The judicial branch is also supporting this movement as shown by Justice Ginsburg:

From Egypt, Ginsburg continued her work with the State Department by heading to Tunisia, where the Arab Spring protest movement had its start. Tunisians recently marked the one-year anniversary of the revolution that ended the dictatorship of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and sparked uprisings around the Arab world.

One justice out of nine does not represent a majority of the judicial branch. We have to ask ourselves which branch of the government is responsible for maintaining our laws which are based on the tenets outlined in the Bible? Where is the outcry from the rest of the Supreme Court when one of their members denounces the U.S. Constitution that they have all sworn to protect? Where is our national outcry from the people as this administration is about to enter into another “kinetic action” in Syria where once again, the United States will be supporting the Muslim Brotherhood under the guise of the “right to protect”?

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Pastor Bonhoeffer gave his life for his belief that we must act to confront and destroy evil. Where is the outcry in Congress and our church to confront the evil in our government which has abandoned Israel? Will supporting Israel in a conflagration against Iran be more than a diversion in this plan to support a new order?

At some point we need to start looking forward and realize that our inaction to confront the evil in our own country now will have consequences that could  and should have been avoided. We must stop looking backward: Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

As our government is staging the next war in the Middle East, let us hope that we act in accordance with our beliefs and heritage instead of aiding the next Caliphate.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Wants Government Sacked

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is calling on the country’s ruling generals to sack the current military-appointed government, saying it has failed to manage the deteriorating security and economic situation in the country.

Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan says the military should appoint a Brotherhood representative prime minister, who would then form a new coalition government.

The Brotherhood controls nearly 50 percent of the seats in the new parliament.

Ghozlan said Thursday a government backed by parliament would be more empowered to handle challenging security and economic problems.
