The Arab Spring Fallacy!

Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,

An old Egyptian Arab proverb states: “I against my brother… my brother and I against our cousin… my brother, my cousin and I against the neighbours… All of us against the stranger.” The last clause is sometimes given as “my cousin and I against the world.”

“Arab Spring - Fallacy”… The ultimate truth about the “Arab Spring” is that there never was one!

Events headed just where God said… It's amazing how much the Middle East has changed in the last century, since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire following World War I. But, the pages of the Bible show that this was all prophesied thousands of years ago. Clearly we can see God's hand in these developments; “And He (God) changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals the deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him. Daniel 2:21 - 22

Prophecy continually points us to our Creator and reminds us that ultimately everything is in His hands. It makes us realize God's constant presence in the affairs of this world. It also reminds us that events are on track for the return of the Messiah and the establishment of His Kingdom, which will be ruled from Jerusalem. Seeing God's hand at work in history and as events play out before our eyes, we should need no further reminder of the need for our own personal relationship with Him through repentance, faith and submission to His divine will as revealed in His Word!

Only a century ago the Middle East was a relatively peaceful and tranquil area. Today it's the most volatile region of the world, with the possibility of war breaking out at any minute. The striking fact of the Middle East and the only one… is Islam. The Islam that shapes the Middle East indoctrinates in Muslims the self-perception that they are members of a civilization implacably hostile to the West. The United States and the West are a competitor to be overcome and not the messenger of a culture to be embraced.

Is this self-perception based on objective truth? Does it reflect an accurate construction of Islam? It is over these questions that American and the West consistently worry about. Yet the questions are irrelevant. This is not a matter of right or wrong but simply the way it is!

Every human heart does NOT yearn for freedom…! In the Islam of the Middle East, “freedom” means something very nearly the opposite of what the concept means to Westerners – it is; the freedom that lies in total submission to Allah and His law. That law, Shariah, is completely opposite to core components of freedom as understood in the West – beginning with the very idea that man is free to make law for himself, irrespective of what Allah has ordained.

It is thus delusional to believe, as the “West’s Arab Spring fallacy” insists… that the region is crammed with fundamental Jihadists holding up the lamp of liberty. Do they exist? Of course they do . . . but in numbers barely enough to mention. When push came to shove, and worse, these Jihadists were over-whelmed, swept away by a tide of Islamic mass movement that beckons endless winter. That is the real story of the Arab Spring – that, and the Pandora’s Box that opens when the West aligns itself with that movement, whose stated goal is to eventually destroy America, Israel and the West.

Not that many people realize that in order for Islam to accept the concept of democracy, a cultural reformation must take place at first… Such reformation will have to cause drastic face lifting of values and beliefs that must be compatible with Islamic teachings and its religious values. In other words, in order for the Middle East to have any hope for any democracy, under Islamic ideology, there need to be a major adaptation of Islam and its Shariah Law.

However, the concept of an “Islamic democracy” is merely wishful thinking. For… how can Islam offer any type of democracy when it teaches certain realities as we mention further?

1. Democracy & Islam… Any system of man-made law is considered illicit under Islamic law, as Allah already has provided Shariah law… the only one permitted.

 

Autocracy = “Dictatorship”; Democracy = equality and freedom and Theocracy = "theo-" = God, "-cracy" = government is a government operated under divine rule and in case of Islam “Shariah Law!”

2. Islam and democracy can never co-exist in harmony… The Quran clearly teaches them that ". . . if any fail to judge by the light of what Allah has revealed, they are no better than unbelievers." (Q 5:47) "The ‘Shariah’ cannot be amended to conform to changing human values and standards. Rather, it is the absolute norm to which all human values and conduct must conform." (Muslim Brotherhood ‘spiritual leader’ Yousef al-Qaradawi)

3. Freedom of Religion and Apostasy… The established ruling of ‘Shariah’ is that apostates are to be killed wherever they may be found. This ruling is derived directly from the Quran "Anyone who, after accepting Faith in Allah, utters Unbelief, except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith—but such as open their heart to Unbelief—on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty." (Q 16:106)  And from other classical Islamic sources such as: "Leaving Islam is the ugliest form of unbelief (kufr) and the worst…..When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed…There is no indemnity for killing an apostate…!" (‘Umdat al-Salik, Reliance of the Traveller, Chapter 08.0-08.4)

4. Islam explicitly teaches it is superior… to every other culture, faith, government, and society and that it is a religion ordained by Allah to conquer and dominate them.

This sense of superiority comes directly from the Quran, with instructions such as… Islam is the only acceptable religion "And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers." (Q 3:85)

Muslims are superior to all other faith groups "Ye are the best of Peoples, evolved for mankind." (Q 3:110); Non-Muslims are "the most vile of created beings" (Q 98:6); Muslims should only extend mercy to other Muslims "merciful to one another, but ruthless to the unbelievers" (Q 48:29).

The founder of The Muslim Brotherhood once declared that "It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet." Hassan al-Banna (Founder of the Muslim Brotherhood)

With teachings like those mentioned… how can we have any hope of an established democracy in the Middle East, when Islamic ideology and Shariah Law are its biggest threat, and will serve as its own obstacle rather than its self-motivation?

The real question to ask is… If Islam is a religion that promotes democracy and freedom… then how come we do not hear of such freedom under the current Islamic regimes in the area, whether it is Saudi Arabia; a pure Islamic state, or Egypt, a semi-democratic state?

And if someone would argue that the real reason for the current crisis in the region has to do with the lack of an Islamic state, and then we are left with a puzzling question….how can an Islamic state be the real answer to the problem when it promotes teachings as the ones listed above? At the end we are left with a ‘myth’ called "Arab Spring - Islamic Democracy!"

It has been said if you want to know what TIME it is on God's calendar - keep an eye on ISRAEL for it is God's timepiece…!

In the wake of the recent attack on the 11th September, 2012 on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, one sobering reality emerged very clearly… the US and the West are NOT prepared for the new Middle East! Not even close by any stretch of imagination. Many current events and factors are foundational in reaching this heartbreak conclusion. For starter, the US and the West remains naive when it comes to understanding the psychology of the Middle East… which comprises mainly of Arabs Muslims who view the US as the great Satan and Israel as the little Satan of the world and the West as an enemy of Islam.

Many new governments in the Middle East, as the after math of the Arab Spring, are Anti-American and Pro-Islamic extremism. Radical Muslims in the region, for the first time, are in the driver seat in almost every Middle Eastern country… a very alarming trend to say the least. 

Most, if not all, moderate Muslims in the region are controlled by Radicals emotionally… as we saw in the recent case concerning the riots against the movie about Muhammad… psychologically out of fear of retaliation against them should they take a different stand against the radicals or if they simply chose not to participate in their Anti-American agenda. Many of the youth in these so-called "Arab Spring" countries are unemployed and have all the time in the world to join the radicals in their violence and effort to take over power in their respective countries with the hope that such goals may provide them with a better future. And, almost all of the new governments in the Middle East are inexperienced in foreign policies and diplomacy. This causes them to be vigilant against the US for its involvement in their region based on their own beliefs that the US, Israel and the West are responsible for their past miseries and current affairs.

New relationships are forming in the region between former enemies against present allies as we are witnessing in Iraq and Egypt. All of these factors, and the tragic outcome of the attack on the US consulate which resulted in the killing of 4 Americans including the US ambassador, mean only one thing: The US is still in denial of these sobering realities and still living the past in terms of foreign diplomacies with these new regional Middle Eastern governments who are radical Islamists at best.

"They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent… they are confederate against thee:" Psalm 83

The Muslim Brotherhood not that long ago was an obscure name to the global community… until just recently with the unfolding events in Egypt during the Arab Spring revolution. Many are not aware of the existence of this organization which has lasted for over 82 years. Initially, rising as a religious reformation movement, then advancing as a political organization… and finally culminating into a ruling party in Egypt for the first time in its history. However, all that aside, one must ask: what’s so significant about the brotherhood…? No doubt, it’s a fair question that demands an answer.

The very reason that led to the Muslim Brotherhood inception should be of concern to the global community. After all, their motive is; to reform Islam back to its original roots which include Jihad, Shariah, and global domination, and the establishment of Caliphate, among other things.

In order for this lofty goal to be accomplished, a very structured and organized movement must be established and put in place. One whose reach can be global, and not confined only to local or regional boundaries.

And, it must be a movement that will be fuelled by wealth, passion, religious allegiance, and loyalty. And… as a result, a global outreach was indeed what the brotherhood had done by forming an alliance with the Nazis against the Jews, and the allies for that matter, organizing political parties in almost every Islamic nation, and inciting riots and rebellions against local governments. Such efforts had helped the Muslim Brotherhood to position them strategically and build for a future take-over.

Recently, and since the start of the Arab Spring in early 2011, all signs lead to the Brotherhood’s involvement, one way or another, in either starting riots, or enticing others; as the case in Egypt, or even awaiting to prey on the outcome of another; as in Syria.  Proving, yet again… that they are a formidable foe to the stability of the region and the globe.

Today, their enthronement at the helm of the Egyptian presidency will without a doubt strengthen their position and may even foster a favourable environment for them to expedite their ultimate goals for domination… The ‘so-called Arab Spring’ has brought the Muslim Brotherhood to the threshold of power and influence in the Middle East. Their only aim is to control the world with Islam. They know they cannot use force to convert the West, so they use deceit (taqiyya). They have managed to deceive a lot of Western politicians into believing them.

Some of the possible scenarios by which such goal can be accomplished can include:

1) Establish a Muslim Brotherhood mini Caliphate through Egypt, Sinai, Gaza strip, and soon Syria.
2) Entice a religious reformation in countries as
Jordan and Northern Sudan. In doing so, their mini Caliphate can be expanded.

3) Form a regional alliance with Iran against Israel by facilitating an Iranian military presence against Israel’s southern borders, in Sinai, and north-eastern borders, in Syria. Not to mention the priceless access through the Suez Canal, this can add another threat to the western borders of Israel.

4) Form a global partnership with Russia and China, which can serve as leverage against the US and its regional allies. Not to mention that such a partnership can open doors for the Brotherhood in South America as well.

5) Support Al-Qaeda terrorists by allowing them access to Sinai and strengthening their position in the region, especially after they have suffered the loss of many of their top commanders. Such an alliance can temporarily allow the Brotherhood an access to another organized global terrorist group in addition to the regional Hamas.

Any one of the above scenarios should sound the alarm bell immediately to the global community as it is a frightening thought to see this happening… However, if history can serve as a proof, one should be frightened indeed. For since it took the Muslim Brotherhood only 82 years to become a house hold name in the region, it should not take them nearly that long to become a global brand, and power for that matter. After all, the last time an Islamic Caliphate was in power was almost 86 years ago. Making a revival effort to bringing it back seems a few steps away, especially when we know that for the Brotherhood, it does not matter who can lead the Caliphate (i.e. an Egyptian, Syrian, even Indonesian), as long as the dream of a Caliphate can get accomplished soon. This indeed should be a real global dilemma for those "who have an ear to hear".

"The Muslim Brotherhood is forming a ring around Israel, out of Sinai and other places so with all this we need more money for the home front," said the retired officer, Uzi Dayan. "If the Sinai is not demilitarized, it becomes a new front," Dayan said. (CNN 15th August 2012)

The plan to surround Israel WILL soon be complete…! Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood has given King Abdullah II notice that he had until October to bow to their demand to transform the Jordanian Hashemite Kingdom into a constitutional monarchy or face Arab Spring "street pressure" for his abdication.  Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood therefore moved forward from opposition propaganda; debating and political pressure to activism against the throne. Both Jordanian camps are anxiously watching to see which way the wind blows in the White House.

The US President has a balancing act to resolve: On the one hand, the Jordanian king has long been a staunch American ally and friend, its mainstay in many regional crises... On the other, Obama regarded the Muslim Brotherhood as the linchpin of his external policy of outreach to the Muslim world.

Nothing is more evident through the Presidency of Obama, the Middle East has been changing dramatically. The very first thing he did as president, was to travel to the headquarters of Islamic learning of the world; the Al Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, in order to declare his devotion and support for Islam. Obama demanded that at least seven leaders of the banned Muslim Brotherhood, who founded Hamas, would be granted permission to be accepted. It made the then President Mubarak so upset that he refused to attend. It seems like Obama knew exactly what he was doing! At the end of August, Morsi visited Iran! It was the first time since the 1979 Iranian Revolution that the president of Egypt visited Iran. Then soon after he declared in Turkey: "We can never hesitate to lend a helping hand to the people of Gaza, our neighbours and brothers, as well as West Bank (Judea and Samaria) and all Palestinians! The so-called "Arab Spring is a mere FALLACY" as it is simply not a spring season but rather the beginning of "fall or autumn" season… a takeover planned by the Muslim Brotherhood! Obama has helped this rise to power! Clearly seen on the 09th September when the US Ambassador Stevens’s mutilated body was dragged through the streets with Muslim chants of praise to Allah and curses on the West… The enemies are teeming up against Israel and the West is simply ASLEEP!

As a result of choosing Obama to lead them again for a second term the USA will soon find itself in bondage to a President “king or demigod” who seeks to do things his own way, and to turn from the principles and precepts upon which the nation was founded. Wealth and resources will be redistributed and the nation became vulnerable. Nearly half of America chose to continue to era of Big Government spending and an agenda that includes the continued murdering of the unborn, support of non-traditional (homosexual) marriage, lacklustre support for the nation of Israel and an entitlement mindset that Government is the source from which money and resources should flow. History is full of examples where other nations have chosen a similar path only to see their power and prestige fade as their nations dissolved into obscurity. If the lessons of the past are not heeded, the past will repeat itself in the future. It appears that for the time being, America is going down that path. The people got what they wanted and will discover too late that choices have consequences! People choose their choices, but consequences happen as a result of choices made.  America has chosen…what will be the consequences? Prime Minister BB Netanyahu and the nation of Israel could soon find themselves in a very difficult situation with the re-election of Obama as he is NOT a friend of Israel.

For Israel, an upheaval in Jordan promises the tightening of the Islamist noose around its borders – Egypt and Libya to the south and with Syria and Lebanon to the north, has unpredictable consequences with regard to Jordan’s Palestinian population which makes up 60%. Saudi Arabia, already threatened by Iranian aggression, fears the oil kingdom may be next in line if its northern neighbour is crushed under the marching feet of the so-called "Arab Spring."

The oil kingdom’s royal rulers are reported to have belatedly woken up to the peril and are in a panic. They realize that their pre-occupation with helping Syrian rebels overthrow Bashar Assad misdirected their attention from the enemies lurking at their own door. Thousands of articles in the Arab press in the past year have predicted that after the Muslim Brotherhood seizes power in Damascus Amman (Jordan) would be next in its sights followed by Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).

The events continue to intensify with Israel and the Middle East. Obama’s hatred for Israel, manifested gradually by forcing Israel to face Iran alone… All we can do is watch this day by day as the countdown to war is on… There never was an Arab Spring as it was always the intent by Obama to bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power and create a caliphate. It is so clear that this was Obama’ and Clinton’s intention from the beginning. Right now Mohamed Morsi the president of Egypt is heading the caliphate that plans on destroying Israel and making Jerusalem its capital!

The Muslim Brotherhood is gaining strength in Egypt and also moving to take over Syria. Once Syria falls, it is expected that Jordan will follow soon. Then Israel will be surrounded by the Muslim Brotherhood and the recipe for war will be ready. Watch… the focus will be on destroying Israel and capturing Jerusalem!

Warning to the United Nations: "Don’t mess with Israel…!" "I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land." Joel 3:2

We are presently at a time, when we are constantly seeing Israel’s border enemies ever more confident to stir up strife and lash out against Israel.

As Israel sees herself alone in this big bad evil world DO NOT, expect them to just idly sit by and watch their nation be wiped off the map of planet earth. With Iran ever breathing threats at Israel… and Israel’s border enemies doing likewise, the tensions are high in the Middle East and in the world. We as Bible believers know without a shadow of a doubt that Almighty God has GREAT plans for Israel but until they believe this, they will find that they are all alone - in Satan's big bad Israel hating world! (Zechariah 12:2-3; 13:8-9 and 14:2-3)

Just in the last few months alone, we have seen Israel’s border enemies seeking to bait and provoke Israel to engage them in conflict in order to rally world opinion and world leaders against them. Israel’s border enemies - especially the Palestinian people - sadly are nothing but the pawns and victims of the anti-Semitic Arab nations; Iran and Russia. These weaker Islamic nations are more than willing to heed these voices and are rabidly chomping at the bit to destroy Israel and occupy Israel’s land.

"I (God) will bless those who bless you (Israel) and will curse those who curse you" (Genesis 12:3)

The Bible warns the destiny of the World is inseparable from Israel and Jerusalem The Bible says that God would one day re-gather the children of Israel back into their land from among many nations around the world ... the Bible says they would be re-gathered in unbelief ... God warns He is NOT re-gathering the children of Israel into their Land because they deserve it, but because His Name and His Word are at stake (Ezekiel 36:17-23)... and because He loves them ... and they are His chosen people. The Bible warns God would then make Jerusalem a world trouble spot ... the Bible says all nations of the world will turn against Israel ... the Bible warns that during this time ‘Gaza will be forsaken’ ... the Bible warns a coming world leader (the Antichrist) will rise out of 10 nations which once formed the Roman Empire and will enforce a peace plan (a covenant or treaty) upon Israel, (many in Israel will be against it) ... and then a period of 3½ year of false peace… God warns He will send the children of Israel (and all the nations of the world) through a fiery trial unlike anything in the history of the world…!

Why?... To separate the ‘unfaithful unbelievers’ from the ‘faithful believers’ (the coming ‘Apocalypse’) ... the Bible warns two-thirds of the people of Israel will be ‘cut off and die’ for their unbelief... then, one day when the armies of the world, will gather in and around the nation of Israel (the coming battle of Armageddon)… and when all seems lost for the children of Israel, the Bible says a believing remnant will recognize their Messiah from Scripture and will call upon His Name.

The Bible then tells us ‘after these things’ the little nation of Israel and the children of Israel will rule over all nations on Earth in peace under her King and Messiah Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ). The Bible says all of the covenants, promises, curses, prophecies, and blessings God has made to the children and nation of Israel will be fulfilled!

 

A Biblical Miracle…

 

The Bible warns a series of events (which will change the world forever) would begin after Israel would once again become a sovereign Nation (after almost 2,500 years)… This remarkable event took place on May 14, 1948! How has the world reacted to such a profound fulfilment of Bible prophecy? Yes, a miracle that can be documented by simply looking at the Bible and a map… It has ignored it! Just as God warned most of the world will ignore the signs of the coming ‘Apocalypse’ (also called ‘the time of Jacob’s trouble,’ the ‘Great Tribulation’ and ‘the Day of the Lord’). Remember, God uses prophecy to prove that He is who He says His is, and to authenticate all the warnings and the promises are found in the Bible.

Then AFTER Israel has become a nation once again,

God warns . . . “Behold, I (God) will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling (anger, fear) unto ALL the people (nations) round about . . .”(Zechariah 12:2) “And in that Day (the “Day of the Lord”) I (God) will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for ALL people!” (Zechariah12:3) Don’t miss this . . . God says HE is the One stirring things up in Israel, Jerusalem and the world!!!

Very soon, the time WILL come when all 1.4 billion Muslims will be so incensed with hatred and bent on destruction against Israel and Jerusalem that they WILL come against God's Chosen People in unprecedented wave upon wave of attacks! And, God will deliver Israel every single time!  The mere fact that tiny Israel prevails over her combined enemies should be proof enough to us that the only true God in the universe… the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob… is protecting Israel!

We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
