I don't know how much everyone has been following this, but it has been utterly astonishing to see this unfolding via videos and scattered news updates.

the photos and videos are the most moving, post some here:

Warning - Some of these videos have some disturbing content with violence.

The videos I've found most disturbing w.w.w. are the ones showing
the protesters stopping every so often to line up and lay on the ground
in prayer out in the street. They look like conditioned cult-like robots.

Fact is the guy's profile was messed with just because someone didn't like it. It "disrespected" Reagan. :rolleyes:

The fact is it broke no rules. The skin is awfully thin around here lately.

It's really rather simple, although, as you said, you are more than a little dumb. Simply put, when enough Muslims gather in one place, they demand that Islam be held supreme over all other religions. When they don't get their way, they riot. If you find that confusing, just ask a Danish cartoonist or a Dutch film maker how they are treated when they criticize Islam. Actually, just ask the Danish cartoonist, as the Dutch film maker was murdered.

Yeah, it would have been a good time to spray them all while they're kissing the pavement.

That's the first I've heard about them destroying museums and their own national treasures.
Karis needs to whip out the tana leaves and unleash the curse of the Mummy.

One of the first things I thought of when this was first being reported, was all the ancient
treasures in Egypt. If the muslims take over and end up in power, I hope they do don't
like they did in Afghanistan when they blew up the giant Budas. That was a horrific crime.
Just imagine what all the world could lose in Egyptian historical artifacts. :(

I love how the left and the media - as if there is any difference :rolleyes: - are trying to paint this as being a pro-democracy movement. :rolleyes: bullshit. If anyone knows anything about the muslim brotherhood they know that these people find democracy to be abhorrent and contrary to islam. These people want two things - sharia law and war with Israel - two things the current regime have openly stood against. Only a damn fool and a big damn fool is stoopid enough to think for a second that these protests have anything what ever to do with a pro-democracy movement.

Islamists get off on destroying pagan imagery, or even Islamic iconography. The Wahhabi takeover of Ta'if, as described in a contemporary account:


The Wahhabis tore up the copies of the Qur'an al-karim and books of tafsir, hadith and other Islamic books they took from libraries, masjids and houses, and threw them down on the ground. They made sandals from the gold-gilded leather covers of the Qur'an copies and other books and wore them on their filthy feet. There were ayats and other sacred writings on those leather covers. The leaves of those valuable books thrown around were so numerous that there was no space to step in the streets of Ta'if. Although Ibn Shakban had ordered the looters not to tear up the copies of the Qur'an al-karim, the Wahhabite bandits, who were gathered from the deserts for looting and who did not know the Qur'an al-karim, tore up all the copies they found and stamped on them. Only three copies of the Qur'an al-karim and one copy of the Sahih of al-Bukhari were saved from plunder in the big town of Ta'if.

Expect more of the same.

And, the Teleprompter in Chief is channeling his inner Jimmy Carter.

Being as most of the protesters are under 30, I doubt they learned what happened in Iran in 1979. SSDD. I wonder how the MB is white-washing the truth to get so many patsies out on the streets. They really don't know what they're protesting for.

If they get their way, what will the women think? Does anyone think they are being told the truth here?

Wei Wu Wei
01-31-2011, 02:39 PM
They're protesting for freedom, they're protesting against the status quo. Does this mean they have not clearly thought about what comes next? Yes, it probably does.

The thing about these moments is they have a special miraculous quality. A few weeks ago, no one would have believed that the egyptian government could be overthrown by a mass uprising, however, they did it.

They did what seemed impossible and now looking back in retrospect it is easy to see how it was very possible, almost as if "it had to happen".

This action changes the very coordinates of the political structure, it changed the horizon of what is p[ossible there. They therefore could not really know what they are fighting for (as in, what they are pushing for after the regime comes down), because that was an impossibility.

They've stepped off the trail, into the realm of pure potentiality, they cannot know where their path is leading because every step carves the path and they have a level of self-determination right now that they are able to actively choose each and every step.

This is why leftists are needed, they can think radically. Without people thinking about what it is they really want, it will be easy for thosewho have already established agendas to swoop in and harness all of the emotions of the crowd and usher in support for whatever they want to bring (which may be fundamentalism)

Wei Wu Wei
01-31-2011, 02:42 PM
When the population is filled with righteous and justified anger at the system, but they do not have the conceptual tools to articulate their feelings or an answer to their problem, they become vulnerable. Charismatic leaders swoop in and tell them what caused their problem (it's a very simple picture too, things were once great and someone, some X facter, came in and ruined it all and if we expell that X factor from our society things will work) and how to fix it.

You get the image and feel of a revolution without actually changing anything, those in power stay in power.

Leftists don't think radically, they feel and translate their feelings into ill-conceived acts. Egypt already has plenty of people doing that. Communists, socialists or progressives are already in the mix, and they will be the first ones purged when the Muslim Brotherhood takes over.

You assume that Conservatives lack the ability to think radically. We don't lack that ability, we discard it when it is an Obama style change is good ideology because, because it is different!:rolleyes:

I can appreciate the idea of freedom these people want. I clearly see that any idea of freedom is not part of the likely outcome.
