Egypt Burning

Is "sectarian" violence what's flaring on the streets of Cairo today (see below)? No, what's flaring on the streets of Cairo today are Muslim mobs attacking ______ [fill in the blank].

The blank? Well, for the past few months it's been the Christians (Egyptian Copts). Last month, it was the Jews in Egypt, or rather the only Jewish presence in Egypt, i.e., the Israeli embassy. Before that embassy ever existed, it was the Jews of Israel. Before Israel ever existed, it was the Jews of Palestine and the Jews of Egypt (who had to abandon their homes and flee Egypt in order to survive). And when they run out of Jews or Christians to attack, they attack each other (Shia vs. Sunni vs. Sufi, etc.)

Notice a pattern here? Don't expect our leaders in Washington to notice, because Washington today - most notably, the Pentagon, the CIA, the State Department, the White House and other agencies - is chock full of Muslim Brotherhood types, who've slithered their way into America's halls of power.

As for non-Muslim Brotherhood types in Washington, they just follow the money, and no one spreads it around better than oil-rich Arab/Muslim royals and potentates. Just look at the employer / financier-of-choice for so many U.S. government retirees, not to mention ex-Presidents, and you'll notice a pattern there, too.

Translation from the Absurdic: It's a Zio-American plot. If only that were true.

What is true is that Egypt is in the early stages of Thomas Hobbes's bellum omnium contra omnes, the war of all against all. Gone is Mr. Sharaf's narrative, a popular staple when Hosni Mubarak was still in power, of... more here
