“Let My People Go”

We need a new “Moses” to stand up and tell Pharor Mubarack and his government to set his people free.

Where is America?  American strategy in the Middle Ease is oil, stability and Israel. American is obessed with Israel. They hold Israel as the Axis of the Middle East policy.  Arabs have always been invisible to America.  The argument in going on in America now is about “interests” and “principles.” When it comes to  policy , it comes down to what can we get. They work with people so undesirable and unreliable that they can’t be trusted. So theyhave to be under totalitarian governments The seige on Gaza is an Egyptian, Israeli, and American operation.

We must take Egypt for itself. Not ask Israel what they think or want. It is a mistake. Doing that makes what we think and do irrelevant.  We do not matter.

We have supported all autocratic leaders in the Middle East We havbe even put them into power in the name of freedom. George W Bush promised the Freedom and Democracy, remember the “Freedom Agenda?” It was freedom in Iraq will bring democracy to Israel.  We see how that worked out. The neocon agenda ha no plan built in for the peple to have a voice. The West had no reason to rock the boat. American must protect their interests.

America must stand for its principles.  American policy is paralyzed.  Why?  The answer is simple…..Keep Egypt an Allie and whoever is “elected” president must ensure that they uphold the Egypt and Israeli Peace Treaty of 1979.  Cold War policies.

We can’t alienate U.S Israelis. It would mean political suicide. In reality it is political cowardice.

The United States has long seeked to block democracy in the Arab world. This goes against all our principles.  Principles we fought for in 1776.  We had our revolution and won our freedom. We wrote the two greatest documents in the world, The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution. Beacons to the rest of the world.

Neocons have gone from the “Freedom Agenda” to fear talk. We need a new Moses to stand up to the neocons and Mubarak and shout let the people go. We need a “Moses” to scream..Mubarak and his regime must go. We put them into power since the Cold War. We can now throw them out. We can do this on the principles we sand on and believe in. The same ones that made this country great and the role model. 

Though I am loath to praise William Kristol, his stand against his own conservatives and neocons is worth reading.  It will follow. Stand up for Freedom,     http://www.theweeklystandard.com/articles/stand-freedom 541404.html.

Bogeyman: Islmaist Take Over

Islamist’s would come in to power and would be against the West.  This is the lying narrative that is being peddled by the Regimes, Neocons, and Israel.  If you believe what they tell you on television, radio and in the papers, we are already being taken over by the Islamist’s.  What can expect if you listen nothing but Fox, Beck and the other neocons.  They are using unjustified and lies to make  you afraid, to stir up your Patriotism

Not since the end of WWI and Woodrow Wilson has the Arab world changed.  Wilson perpetuated social justice, self-determination,an end to external control, and social justice. The same is happening now. There is again a break from the past, but no one knows what the future will bring.

Fear is being used by the Regimes, Israel and the neocons. Social justice has nothing to do with it. What is happening here is the reality of the Arab world, masked by this lying narrative peddled by the old Regimes, Israel and the god fearing neocons. Either us or the devil. You accept a police state, you accept beatings outside poling places, you accept all kinds of horror.  This conversation, narrative, is going on now with the neocons and Israel’s comparisons of Egypt with Iran of 1979.  Fear is the ultimate weapon. They speak of freedom, liberty, free elections, change the world, and make it a better place.  But they want you to believe that it will all be replaced by a terrorist government.  Why? Because they say so. 

They are afraid.  It is beginning in other Arab countries and the remarkable thing is, there’s been no prominence of Islamic extremism either on the left or right.  It is a remarkable mix of the various trends that existed in these countries, but were masked by this narrative of fear wer were peddled. 

Question now is what happens next.  Will the police apparatus be tamed? Security forces musty be removed from the equation. The fear is a Mubarak Regime without Mubarak. The person who is in charge of the Egyptian Security apparatus is now the vice president, Mr. Sulemin. If that regime stays in place there will be no democracy and no change. It is not the matter of the man, Mubarak. It is the secret police apparatus running things in Egypt or not? Mubarak’s security command, Mr. Sulemin, who they say is very ill, may not be the man.

Egypt has been the dominate role in the Arab world. Egypt ow has the Palestinian question. Do they lift the siege of Gaza? Palestinian authority, Mr. Abbas which supported Mubarak in the seige of Gaza, can no longer be a client of a foreign country. The region is linked and they have the same aspirations.

The envoy that Obama sent has said that Mubarak must stay. He was the wrong choice. There may be a conflict of interest. Wisner works for the law firm, Patton Boggs, which advises the Egyptian military, the Economic Development Agency.  The firm has strong ties to Mubarak.

All across the Middle East, we are waiting to see the downfall of America’s friends. In Egypt, Mubarak must be wondering where he can fly to. America’s friends are collapsing.  They must if they want their freedom, rights, social justice and change. 

The Democrat’s world in the Arab Middle East is at its end.
