Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss — Except Worse

Let’s check in again on the Arab Spring that has liberals so enthused:

Egypt’s ruling party is paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square against President Mohamed Morsi, activists said.
They also said the Muslim Brotherhood is paying gangs to beat up men who are taking part in the latest round of protests, which followed a decree by President Morsi to give himself sweeping new powers.

It comes as the Muslim Brotherhood co-ordinated a demonstration [Saturday] in support of President Mohamed Morsi, who is rushing through a constitution to try to defuse opposition fury over his newly expanded powers.

As noted earlier, this constitution is a sharia-affirming recipe for tyranny. [link]

Magda Adly, the director of the Nadeem Centre for Human Rights, observes that “the Muslim Brotherhood have the same political approaches as Mubarak” when it comes to roughing up and/or sexually assaulting protestors.

The difference between Morsi and Mubarak? Morsi is an Islamist with obvious terrorist sympathies, clearly hostile to the USA and Israel. Mubarak was a loyal US ally who at least helped keep the region stable. That is why Mubarak got Obama’s knife in his back, whereas Morsi has received his support.

What is that opposition, btw? I doubt they are human right activists.

And this is why it is foolish to believe that we can spread "democracy" to these people: they simply don't want it!

I think the Egyptian "youth bulge" would beg to differ.

And what percent of the population do they make?
Deltapotamus Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The majority, actually. The median age in Egypt as of 2011 was 24.3 years old.

Well then there may be hope for it after all. But it doesn't look like that's the case right now.

Seriously, do your research before making claims. The biggest issue is that the youth don't have access to political entities in power, with the exception of Salafi groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood. Secular movements such as the April 6th group, despite their popularity with the youth, have been pushed out of power, which is creating a discord among the vast majority - which is why there are still riots.

If everyone wanted to remain as they are, in a Islamic government, there wouldn't still be riots, and groups such as the Black Bloc would not have formed.

And then of course another issue, equally important, is the vast amount of corruption rampant within Egypt, from the government to building contractors to the police. Even in their past dabbles with liberal government, as under Nasser, corruption hindered their ability to have an effective democracy.

I knew they'd be sorry. You can warn people, but not everyone listens.
