    Muslim Brotherhood wages war on Christians

    As violence envelops Egypt, Christians are paying a heavy price with scores of their most sacred buildings and monuments being systematically destroyed by members of the Muslim Brotherhood in what one Coptic leader called an attempt at ethnic cleansing.
    The group, which is clashing with the military throughout the North African nation, has zeroed in on Christians since the Muslim Brotherhood-backed administration of Mohamed Morsi was ousted on July 3. The military removed him from power after he imposed several sweeping constitutional changes that appeared to put the nation of 90 million on a path toward Islamist rule

    See also Islamist mob parades nuns in Cairo as prisoners of war after six hours looting church school and replacing cross with banner resembling Al Qaeda flag.

    But it isn't really the religion. Islamism is a vile political ideology that hides behind the religion, and the world will be a better place when that ideology is exterminated.

    Heya Diogenes. Yep we have it up here too.

    Also, the Syrians are saying the same thing.


    Syrian government backs decision to oust Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.....

    Syria’s embattled government applauded Egypt’s security forces for their crackdown against the Muslim Brotherhood, saying Damascus wanted to restore diplomatic ties cut by Egypt’s former Islamist regime.

    Speaking about the situation in Egypt, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad condemned the Muslim Brotherhood and ousted former President Mohamed Morsi, saying “the Brotherhood never believed in democracy. Everybody knows this

    We believe that the tens of millions who came out on June 30 to denounce the Muslim Brotherhood reflect the real intentions and the real aspirations of the Egyptian people,” Mekdad said in an interview with Stars and Stripes.

    He praised the Egyptian military for moving against the Muslim Brotherhood, saying it was forced to act “against these fanatics ... who under the presidency of Morsi tried to control all aspects of life in Egypt.”

    The burning of churches across Egypt that followed the bloodshed of recent days reflected what is happening in Syria, Mekdad said, where armed jihadists are increasingly targeting the country’s Christian minority, which makes up about 10 percent of Syria’s 23 million people.

    “Our main concern is to restore relations that existed between Egypt and Syria,” he said. “Once Egypt and Syria are in the leading seat, stability and prosperity will return to the (Middle East).”.....snip~

    Heya SB .....yeah I saw that. Course if we look back at before Kerry became SOS. Then took a look at who was writing out legislation for that nation building in the ME and Egypt being set up with a Democracy. Then it would seem your answer concerning the GOP would need the flip side to the coin.

    Both Neo Cons and Neo Libs have been outwitted, out-played, and out foxed by those aligned to AQ. Country or Organizations.

    Yes, you're right. Still, did you see the reaction when I pointed that out? If Obama didn't object in this one specific case then the Righties jump on to the opposite side without any kind of reasonable rationale.

    AQ doesn't need to out-maneuver us. We do it to ourselves.

    But not really as McCain came out and said he stood with Obama on this. Which means Team Obama has taken the stance and McCain will give support. Again goes back to the Same Bird.....just different wings.

    As to AQ.....seems they can play with our heads at anytime now.

    Could have to do something with our Pols who have been around for 25 years or longer. Course now with Johnny Quest McCain, I have said they do need to have him take a psychological and set him out for pasture.

    This was one of the news articles I was referring to:
    US Senator John McCain, who called for suspending the $1.3 billion in annual aid to the military after it overthrew Morsi in early July, said Washington risked losing credibility if it continued to turn a blind eye to the bloody crackdown.
