This weekend former war POW turned nut-job US Senator John McCain ventured behind enemy lines in Syria to meet with the “Rebels”.
The fact is, Syria is not a friend of the US and definitely not a friend of Israel.
And as we have seen, the “Arab Spring” that was supposed to usher in some sort of Democracy in Islamic countries hasn’t exactly panned out.
In Libya we helped the “Rebels” who immediately after seizing power turned their attention away from deposing and hating Muammar Gaddafi back into hating America. And the same “Rebels” we helped into power were behind the Benghazi attack that killed an American Ambassador and the brave Americans that tried to come to his aid.
And Egypt moved from a nation that pretended to like America into one that no longer pretends they hate us. It is now for real.
Democracy, self governance and personal liberty are not compatible with Islam. Without harsh laws and rule in place, most of the country will not follow Islam, something that is intolerable to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Women cannot have the type of freedom under Islam (ans Sharia Law) that they enjoy under almost any other form of government. The laws favor the men and women are subservient to men. And they all answer to the Theocratic Rulers.
Muslim countries that embrace Islam can never have the type of Democracy we keep hoping they can establish because Islam comes complete with it’s own form of government and laws that reflect those values.
John McCain is not the brightest bulb in the legislative closet. People like him who continue to hold out hope that this time will be different are like Charlie Brown and Lucy kicking the football.
John McCain may be a bit hard of hearing so I will type this very loudly:
Syria does not want a Democracy. The “Rebels” want Islam.
It is really that simple.
Now there are those like Barack Obama who are not as naive as McCain about the Muslim Brotherhood and Islam. Or as politically correct as G.W. Bush with his “religion of peace” shtick. Obama understands exactly what is going to happen in Syria. He understood what was going to happen in every country that saw an “Arab Spring”.
Islamic Fundamentalists are in the process of spreading Islam and Theocratic Islamist rule to the countries that are already overwhelmingly Muslim.
McCain may actually believe that helping the “Rebels” will make them like us and be grateful for our help in gaining control in Syria. Obama is under no such delusion. He is only too happy to help the “Brotherhood” waving the flag of the promise of Democracy and try to make Americans believe the “Rebels” will be our friends and allies, but Obama knows Islam better than most. He is fully aware that the Syrian Rebels will take any and all help and then bite the hand that feeds them when they get what they want – which is power and control and the spread and rise of Islam.
This isn’t really a secret, either.
And we can’t, or shouldn’t, blame the Muslims. They are doing what they are supposed to do. Spreading Islam. And fools like McCain are nothing more than useful tools they will use to do so.
And McCain seems to think ‘this time will be different’.
No. It won’t. If we help the Muslim Brotherhood “Rebels” they will seize power and then turn their attention towards Israel, America and the West. Our way of life is a threat to their way of life. Islam cannot thrive where there is Religious freedom.
So we have Obama, on the one hand, perfectly OK with Islam spreading and willing to support the Muslim Brotherhood and the Arab Spring as something profound and wonderful. And on the other hand, useful idiots like McCain willing to help the Muslim Brotherhood in hopes that they will remember their “friends”.
In the end, it would be far wiser to leave them be. Sure, people who hate America have temporarily turned their anger towards Bashar Hafez al-Assad and the two are busy murdering one another.
But that is none of our business and how could anyone see two groups that hate us killing one another as a bad thing?
Sure there are kids dying and that is always sad. But these kids will be taught to hate America and Israel. If they haven’t already.
I say it’s time we left them alone and let them kill each other if that is their wish.
Let Allah sort it out.
