The whole point of this blog is to bring some coherence into my ramblings. Mostly poetry, yes. But not quite :)
It always helps to have somebody criticize what I've written. At least THEN you know they've read it ....
You'll find pretty much constant whining here. No, I've still not QUITE grown out of it. Do we ever ?
Never ending grumbles... here we come!
the Muslim Brotherhood will come to the same realisation as others
Gradualists (in the revival of Islam) like the FIS (Algeria) and the
Rafah Party (Turkey). One does not simply use the post-colonial
political system in Muslim countries against itself. It is backed up,
and underwritten, by the very foreign powers who created it as a cage
This is like walking into a Casino, and using your
money to play the gambling games, hoping that you'll win enough to buy
the casino, and close it down. In reality, you've just wasted your money
and made the casino richer, because 'The House Always Wins'.
The U.S. government realises that 'Islamist' parties are popular -
representing the people's desire for a Islamic system. However, they
realised that though they cannot prevent such parties coming to power
now, the situation is not outside some means of control. Namely, the
U.S. merely has to allow these parties to get into a very limited role
of power, then 'shut all the doors' on them to make them appear to fail
in the people's eyes. Since Morsi wasn't willing, or able, to really
change the system - he and his party will be publicly hanged by it (as a
warning to others).
Now the Muslim Brotherhood cries foul, and
demands that people respect democracy (i.e. that Morsi is an legitimate
elected leader). But they don't understand why Liberals use Democracy.
Liberalism doesn't exist to serve Democracy. Democracy exists to serve
Liberalism. This is why the U.S. constitution was created, because the
founding fathers of America didn't trust the rule of the majority. The
Constitution defines the essential laws and rights, and people only
elect leaders to implement that Liberal constitution, or make laws
WITHIN its limits [btw the American public was not given a choice on the
US constitution]. Does Morsi not see that if Democracy doesn't produce
the result the Liberals want, they have no problem with becoming violent
to protect Liberalism, and ignoring democracy. This fact should have
been apparent from anyone who studied history.
should have changed the system, not just played games within it, hoping
the system would allow them to overturn it. Morsi tried to appease the
USA and ISRAEL by shutting off Gaza ever more than Mubarak did. He
begged for foreign interest loans - even though he should of confiscated
the ill-gotten property of the Egyptian Military industrial complex,
and re-distributed to the poor. He could have changed the economy of
cotton production (for export to Western countries) into food production
for his own people. He tried to appease the Secularists by making Egypt
fall well short of a Islamic State - content to apply a Islamic
flavouring. But now he'll find out that the two billion dollars the USA
pays to the mercenary Egyptian Generals, is not without strings. And the
Egyptian Military are the real kingmakers of Egypt - and they were only
waiting until the people turned against the Muslim Brotherhood, to
depose them, or at least render their power negligible in a 'unity
government' (composed of the pro-secular but electoral losers).
So instead of pushing towards the goal of the re-establishment of
Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood were the unwitting pawns of a game
designed to make Islamic movements look incompetent - pushing back the
work for revival back by decades.
However, now is not the time
for people to say 'I told you so' to the Gradualists, but to say 'now,
will you do things a better way?'
It's time for us to liberate our 'kingmakers' - then we will be free to submit our nations to Al Malik (swt).
I found this highly relevant to what's going on in Egypt these days (especially now). May Allah Protect the people there from violence and bloodshed. May Allah Help us understand the blatant hypocrisy shown by influential people of the society we live in. And may Allah Help Guide us to the way that is straight and leads to Him. Ameen
