SHARIA – ON THE NILE
The Muslim Brotherhood rejects liberal democracy
By Andrew C. McCarthy – The National Review – October 15, 2012 pp 43-45
Yes, yes, we know—on Planet Obama, the Brothers are oxy- moronic “moderate Islamists”: members of a “largely secular” organization that seeks “change” through “dialogue” and the “political process,” not violence . . . and never you mind its Palestinian branch, Hamas, or its chief jurist, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, whose notable fatwas have green-lighted suicide bombing in Israel and terror strikes against American troops in Iraq.
Back on Earth, in October 2010, Badi admonished Muslims to remember “Allah’s commandment to wage jihad for His sake with [their] money and lives, so that Allah’s word will reign supreme and the infidels’ word will be inferior.” Applying this injunction, Badi exclaimed that jihad, or “resistance,” “is the only solution against the Zio-American arrogance and tyranny.” On went the invective: Wounded by jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan, the united states, Badi gleefully surmised, “is now experiencing the beginning of its end, and is heading towards its demise.”
These are the fulminations of a committed enemy. Iran’s Mah- moud Ahmadinejad could not have said it better. It is not Ahma- dinejad and the shiite mullahs but Badi who represents the avant-garde of Islamic supremacism, the dominant form of Islam in the overwhelmingly sunni Middle East. this Islam, as I relat- ed in these pages earlier this year (“‘Islam Is Islam, and that’s It,’” January 23), is what samuel Huntington aptly described as “a different civilization [from the West] whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture.” the “Arab spring” is, in reali- ty, the Islamist ascendancy; the Middle East is not seized by a fer- vor for freedom, but is ripe for descent into sharia totalitarianism.
As the tahrir square uprisings led to Hosni Mubarak’s ouster, the Obama administration was determined to cultivate the Bro- therhood in Egypt. that, after all, is exactly what the president has done in the united states, where his administration’s high- priority “Islamic outreach” empowers Brotherhood affiliates. It makes no difference that the Justice Department, in a 2008 terror- ism-financing prosecution, proved that the Brothers are on a self-proclaimed “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.” Continue reading
