Your fart in the wind has a very good chance of filling the vacuum when they topple Mubarak. Your lack of study in middle east history is readily apparent and in this case your ignorance is criminal.
For “if” they do, you will be nice and comfy in your mommy’s basement playing your level 80 shaman, while people are hanged for being gay or burned alive for running from their abusive husbands, or stoned to death for being raped, or hands cut off for stealing bread, or acid bathed for spurning advances. All sorts of nice things that come along with Sharia Law and the culture it breeds.
Are you serious? Did you even read the wiki you linked to? You want to use wiki articles… here is another wiki page on the Muslim Brotherhood:
“Among the Brotherhood’s more influential members was Sayyid Qutb. Qutb was the author of one of Islamism’s most important books, Milestones, which called for the restoration of Islam by re-establishing the Sharia and by using “physical power and Jihad for abolishing the organizations and authorities of the Jahili system, which he believed to include the entire Muslim world.”
“In the group’s belief, the Quran and Sunnah constitute a perfect way of life and social and political organization that God has set out for man. Islamic governments must be based on this system and eventually unified in a Caliphate.”
Do you have any idea what that means? If you don’t, you need to read up son.
Read up on the history of Lebanon. Beirut used to be referred to as the Paris of the middle east for it’s culture and freedoms, until the Fundies took it over.
To posit it’s irrational for people to fear the Muslim Brotherhood becoming the dominant force rising from the upheaval is simply another example of pathetic partisanship. If it does, the wrath brought down on the people will make Mubarak look like Mother Theresa.
noncents commented on the blog post Thousands Converge on Koch Brothers Billionaire’s Caucus; 25 Arrested
Stunning hypocrisy. Large events being protested by large organizations. What difference does it make whether the money comes from; Soros or Koch or Unions? Money is required to do things. The issue isn’t whether money is involved, it’s whether you support the cause.
It’s obvious that the left only supports freedom when it’s to their benefit. The Koch brothers support Libertarian causes. Libertarians are far more liberty minded than the left. Libertarians support freedom, both fiscally and socially. The left supports some social freedoms, but also support taking money from people via threat of violence everytime they vote for increased taxes. How you can justify it is simply unfathomable.
It’s only after the government comes and takes away the things you hold dear, that you finally start wondering how it became so powerful.
