'Arab Spring' The Gathering of Arab Dark Storm
The Truth About the Slogan
The 'Arab Spring' Western society newspapers' pages were filled with the stories about the 'Arab Spring'. The headlines were screaming at us: "People in the Middle East and North Africa are standing up to reject autocracy, corruption and the extremist narrative and are seeking freedom and democracy."
Is this really the story line that dominates and moves the bloody protests and the movements of the people in the Middle East? Or is it perhaps a line put out by the Muslim Brotherhood and other extremists groups who appear to be cooperating in subverting the weakened tyrants, currently in control of these artificial nation states, in a bid to be the new 'masters' of those states?
The West's hope that the 'Arab Spring' represents a mass movement towards democratic reform of Middle East and North African government is patently false. More so this is very troubling. With the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) establishing themselves in a leadership position to be part of rewriting Egypt's Constitution, it is becoming rather crystal clear just how much influence they have on Egyptian society and what will the future of the Government of Egypt be like.
So, why this false slogan and the Narrative that follows has been put out across the Main Stream Media (MSM) and where is it truly coming from? More important, who benefits from this false slogan and the narrative behind it?
Seemingly to date, the major beneficiary has been the Islamic Republic of Iran. While the MSM are busy obscuring the truth about the power struggle that is ongoing in Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and the like, Iran and its henchmen are picking up the pieces and are constructing a new world order out of it. While the MSM's headlines and Narrative are clearly deceiving and false, we are finding the situation in the countries of unrest increasingly hostile to the USA and the West strategic interests.
At best, with hope and pray, we may see a formation of democracy that permits one time democratic vote, but then as I see it, the totalitarian MB will assume full control.
In January 2006, the Islamic resistance of the existence of Israel, the militant group movement Hamas has taken control of Gaza Strip after it won a huge victory in the local polls. What Hamas simply prevented their opposition from voting.
The Hamas ousted all Fatah officials, killed many of the Fatah members, as part of the Battle of Gaza of 2007 and ever since has been ruling Gaza with iron fist and much terror.
The Muslim brotherhood gave birth to Hamas. Its satellite is in Gaza. A repeat of the Gaza elections scenario is more likely to be the rule, not the exception in all the countries of unrest. A tribal, sectarian Muslim society is not one where democracy and liberty can be formed and thrive.
The 'Arab Spring' may turn to be the gathering storm. So the hopeful for democracy in the Middle East and North Africa, knock it off already.
