We Are Witnessing the Collapse of the Middle East

We Are Witnessing the Collapse of the Middle East

By James
Simpson

 

If Egypt should fall, it will mark the beginning of the
end for what little remaining stability there is in the Middle East.  Jordan is
facing similar
unrest
, as are Algeria
and Yemen.
Lebanon and Tunisia fell in January.  It is highly unlikely that these events
are unrelated.  A combination of leftist and Islamist forces provoked the
protests, and we are likely looking at a ring of radical Islamic states rising
up to surround Israel.  Once their power is solidified, perhaps in a year or
two, they will combine forces to attack Israel.  If Israel falls, the United
States will stand alone in a sea of virulent enemies and impotent
allies.

So whom does Obama support, Mubarak or his enemies?
Obama wasted no time in telling us.  He supports Mubarak’s opponents, and
he probably has been all along.  The Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday that
the Obama administration favors
a role
for the Muslim Brotherhood in a new Egyptian government.
The Muslim Brotherhood, the oldest extremist Muslim organization, is behind
practically every Muslim terrorist organization ever formed.  And while they may
have publicly renounced violence as the LA Times article claims, internal
documents
tell a completely different story.
And if that weren’t bad enough, Obama’s latest
comment
to Egypt’s leader is that “an orderly transition … must begin
now.”
Must begin.  Now.
Simply stunning.
Juxtapose Obama’s statements toward our allies with his reaction to the
genuine uprising that occurred last year in Iran.  Tunisia:
“Reform or be overthrown.”  Egypt:
“an orderly transition … must begin now.”  Iran:
“It is not productive … to be seen as meddling.”  Meanwhile, candidate Obama
claimed that the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezb’allah have “legitimate claims,”
and we all remember his mindless counterterrorism czar, John Brennan, reaching
out
to “moderate” Hezb’allah members last spring.  Hezb’allah
moderates?
The seeming inconsistency is astonishing.  Unfortunately, there is a
consistency.  Obama uniformly sides with our enemies but rarely, if ever, with
our friends and allies.  His administration is packed with far-left radicals and
vicious
anti-Semites
.  And therein lies the rub, because what we are witnessing in
reality is this president’s un-American, anti-American, treasonous ideology in
full play.
Perhaps this is the real reason for Bill Ayers’s, Bernardine Dohrn’s, Code
Pink’s Medea Benjamin’s and Jody Evans’s trips
to
Egypt
in 2009.  Following those trips, these same people made multiple
visits
to the White House.
Obama’s breathlessly arrogant answer?  Not the same Ayers, Dohrn, Benjamin,
and Evans.  Sure.
A few years back, I
cited
a quote by Lynn
Stewart
, the National Lawyers
Guild
attorney jailed for helping blind sheikh Omar Adel Raman foment terror
from his New York jail cell.  One might think that atheistic radical leftists
would be foursquare against a political movement that tramples women’s rights,
murders homosexuals, and enforces strict theocratic mandates.  No such luck,
Stewart said:
They [radical Islamic movements] are basically forces of national
liberation. And I think that we, as persons who are committed to the liberation
of oppressed people, should fasten on the need for self-determination. … My
own sense is that, were the Islamists to be empowered, there would be movements
within their own countries … to liberate.
” … movements within their own countries … to liberate.”  Given recent
developments, Stewart’s statement was prescient.  But I think it had a special
meaning.  Because when movement leftists like Stewart talk about “liberation,”
they are really talking about communism.
It has been my longstanding assertion that Muslim terrorism is simply a
false flag operation, managed in the background by our main enemies, Russia and
Red China.  Almost since the beginning, Muslim terrorist organizations have been
supported and nurtured by the Soviet Union or its Middle Eastern surrogates.
Yasser Arafat’s PLO is a prime example.  Created by the KGB, the PLO was
always about providing a Soviet counterweight to Israel in the Middle East.
They were uninterested in the Palestinian cause, and they
said so
!  Alexander Litvinenko, the KGB defector poisoned by Polonium
210 in what was assumed to be a KGB hit, claimed in his book, Allegations,
that al-Qaeda’s number two man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, was a Soviet agent.  And
while today Hezb’allah is the de facto ruler of Lebanon, the real power is
Ba’athist Syria.
David Horowitz wrote of the alliance between leftists and Muslim terrorists
in his seminal book: Unholy
Alliance
: Radical Islam and the American Left
.  He describes in detail
how the left and Muslim radicals work together to achieve their mutual ends: the
destruction of America.
It is incomprehensible that President Obama does not recognize the
strategic significance of what is happening, and if he does, then his support of
Egypt’s sham “democracy movement” is a naked betrayal of our Middle Eastern
allies and, by extension, our own country.
Unfortunately, his view is shared by some Republicans who are so in love
with the idea of “democracy” that it doesn’t matter to them that the “democrats”
in this case include fanatic mass murderers.  At best, it can be seen only as
incredibly myopic and ignorant to support Mubarak’s enemies.  People make the
same mistake Carter did with Iran and Nicaragua: they commit the logical error
of assuming that just because a country’s current leadership is flawed and
“undemocratic,” that automatically means that someone else would do better.
Newsflash: they can do worse, and almost without exception, they do, because
people who take power by street riot have no interest in “democracy.”
If their street revolutions are successful, these Middle Eastern countries
will rapidly degenerate into radical Muslim thugocracies allied with our
communist enemies.  Israel will be the first target, and with Obama’s radically
anti-Israel orientation, the Israelis will stand alone.  We will be next.  One
wonders if Obama will then stand to defend the country he swore to, or if he
will be out in the streets with his fellow radical leftists burning American
flags.
