It ONLY matters when you whiny Libs want to make some stupid moreal equivalency argument. You do it so you can say "see they do it too".Because it matters. I didn't go back 200-300 years. I went back five or six thousand years. This country has always had problems right up to the last regime. The last regime was persecuting people. That's why people in Egypt wanted a revolution so badly. They thought an Islamic government would be the answer since that's what they had before. They were wrong. Just because they were wrong doesn't mean they shouldn't keep trying for a truly free government. People seem to think that just because they're not us means they have to have a "lesser of the two evils" in regards to which tyrant runs their country. That's not true. They can have freedom. Not sure how yet though. They weren't wrong to want revolution. They chose their new leaders poorly.
Amazing how you Libs are willing to do the reach back in hostory on everything except our own Constitution and anything having to do with the Founding Fathers.
When they get brought up it's all about the here and now.
What you want us to buy into is blaming Moses for what's happening in Egypt today because the Jews rose up agaisnt the Pharoh. Anyone with a brain can see that and isn't going to buy into that kind of simplistic bullshit.,
Except for you of course.
No...he's right. See that's the difference between Ody myself and you. We've seen Islam up close and personal. We've studied it...not allegedly been given some sanitized version for non believers like you CLAIM you have in supposedly talking with that Imam. It is evil it has always been evil and for the purveyors of Islam that seeks to destroy anything that isn't Islam it will always be evil. And it must be stopped.Not to mention Ody's claiming Islam was always evil and that Christianity somehow made Egypt better. My gosh, any country Christians ruled way back when was persecutive.
Speak for yourself. I'd have done just fine. But then again I'm not a squishy Lib like you.You realize neither one of us would have survived a Christian middle aged country, right? There's no way. Most of us would be dead.
That is such crap I don't know where to begin. Again this is where your attempt to reach back in hostory to justify your misguided perceptions fails you. Was ALL religion at some time brutal? Yes. Hell the Pope had his own army.By contrast, Muslims did allow other monotheistic religions so long as they didn't try to rise up to get power. Not enlightened by our standards, but back then it meant something.
But what seperates Christianity from Islam is the fact that Christians moved away from the "convert or die" mentality...there was a great evolution of what it meant to be a Christian and believe in God and the bible. Thus the reason it is the peaceful religion it is today.
Islam didn't evolve. It stayed right where it was 500 years ago. It hasn't evolved and neither has it's followers.
You don't know that either one of them was crooked. How do you know the citizens were treated horribly/ Were you there? No. What happened is that the Muslim Brotherhood...a radical group that had been banned from the country for decades because of their attempts to overthrow the Government staged a coup because our government had sent signals that we wouldn't step in and stop it or support Egypt. This was hammered home by things said by Obama after the protests started in Tahari Square. The brotherhood was given the green light...by us.I admire Sadat's williness to make peace with Israel. How did Egypt treat its actual citizens? Horribly. They got tired of it. Just because Mubarak was more secular doesn't mean he was any less crooked.
Now look what's happening. The blood from these crucifixions is partially on Obama's hands.
Says who?The guy ruled for thirty years. Thirty years. That's not freedom.
I suppose you have links right?And it's been argued that elections got rigged. He was known for killing demonstrators.
Mubarak or his successor out of power leaves the ENTIRE REGION in danger. It has severly destabilized the region.Having Mubarak out of power leaves Christians in danger
Did you see the little news piece over the weekend that the thug-in-chief in Egypt is going to visit his Iranian counterpart? First time that's happened since the early
How do you figure? Because your misguided naive Liberal feelings told you that if we supported Mubarak it must be wrong? That because the Egyptian government suppressed a radical islamic terrorist group intent on implementing Sharia law across the land if given the chance that somehow made them dangerous?People in general were already in danger though.
Except that with Mubarak we were not only guarenteed a stable reliable ally in that area along with Israel. Now we have another enemy in the making.Neither Mubarak nor the Muslim Brotherhood was the answer.
