Moslem Brotherhood will delete peace treaty with Israel

Egypt’s banned Muslim Brotherhood movement has unveiled its plans to scrap a peace treaty with Israel if it comes to power.

The Moslem Brotherhood claims to be peaceful and moderate, but their words and actions say otherwise.

Rashad al-Bayoumi appeared on an Egyptian TV station Thursday and said the peace treaty with Israel will be abolished after a provisional government is formed by the movement and other Egypt’s opposition parties.

“After President Mubarak steps down and a provisional government is formed, there is a need to dissolve the peace treaty with Israel,” al-Bayoumi said.

Egypt was the first Arab country to officially recognize Israel and sign a peace agreement with the Israeli government in 1979. It is also a major mediator of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The Muslim Brotherhood has recently come to light amid mass anti-government protests in Egypt. Some media voiced concerns that the banned Islamic movement could eventually take power in the riot-hit Arab country.

Initial Obama Administration reactions indicate that it does not rule out Muslim Brotherhood participation in a future Egyptian coalition government.

President Obama thinks he can do business with the Moslem Brotherhood. He is either inexcusably foolish, or he is compromised.

Since January 28, the Muslim Brotherhood’s involvement has become more prominent, with its support of Mohamed ElBaradei to lead the opposition forces against the government. In the streets of Cairo, Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators disdainfully call people like ElBaradei “donkeys of the revolution” (hamir al-thawra) – to be used and then pushed away – a scenario that sees the Muslim Brotherhood exploit ElBaradei in order to hijack the Egyptian revolution at a later stage.

Former Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammad Akef declared in 2004 his “complete faith that Islam will invade Europe and America.” In 2001, the Muslim Brotherhood’s publication in London, Risalat al-Ikhwan, featured at the top of its cover page the slogan: “Our Mission: World Domination.” This header was changed after 9/11.

The current Supreme Guide, Muhammad Badi’, gave a sermon in September 2010 stating that “the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death, just as the enemies pursue life.”

My comments;

US President Barak Obama has shown himself to be pitifully naïve in relation to the Moslem world in the first two years in office. His naiveté is shared by many on the political Left in the Western World, where I sometimes think there is a competition to see who can be the most militaristically suicidal.

But even amongst looney Leftists, it is undeniable that the Moslem Brotherhood’s intentions are not peaceful, when one of their own senior leaders plainly and openly says his organization will tear up the 1978 Camp David Accords if they gain political power in Egypt.

Egypt, as many commentators have said, is the center of gravity in the Arab world. The reason there has not been a large war in the Middle East for the last 40 years is that Egypt decided after the 1973 Yom Kippur War not to start any more fights with the Jewish State, and the other Arab countries know they are too small and weak to take on Israel without Egypt.

Now, the Moslem Brotherhood is about to become the dominant force in Egypt, which will lead to Moslem Brotherhood franchises in other Arab countries becoming emboldened to overthrow their pragmatic/secular governments.

These Islamic fundamentalists will not be deterred from attacking Israel by the military firepower of the Israeli military or the economic power of the United States, which anyway is fading.

We must all be praying for the nation of Israel as well as the Believing church in Egypt and other Arab countries. The Moslem Brotherhood’s rise to political power will be very dangerous for both of them.

And pray for the membership of the Moslem Brotherhood. Yeshua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus Christ) died for them too, and the only hope for them, in this world or in the next world, is to come to know His love and saving Grace.

Moslem Brotherhood claims to be peaceful, moderate

Many people are watching to see how Islamist movements, many of them currently banned as political parties, try to reposition themselves before expected elections later this year.

Moslem Brotherhood leaders claim to be peaceful, despite having assasinated a former Egyptian President and encouraging terrorist groups in other countries.

In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood, the country’s largest opposition group, has said it would join the protests but has not organized the demonstrations, which have been led by young people angry at poor living standards and authoritarian rule. However, the outlawed group enjoys wide popular support.

Robert Danin, senior fellow for Middle East and Africa Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, says the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups in the region could still gain influence.

“This was not an Islamist uprising. This was not something that was planned by the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, the argument in Egypt over the course of the last five years has been about liberal values and liberal principles, and you see the Muslim Brotherhood appropriating the discourse – of the liberal discourse about reform.”

The Muslim Brotherhood is banned as a political party, and has faced repeated crackdowns. Supporters have run in recent elections as independents.

“It is wrong because the Islamic groups, Islamic movements all over the world are modern and peaceful movements,” complained MB leader Abdel Mounoun Abdel Fouthouh. “It is a miserable thing that the Western regimes, especially the American one, is afraid of the Islamists. Yes, there are extremists in Islamic movements here and there, but the main bodies of the Islamic movements all over the world is a national and peaceful and moderate movement.”

My comments;

The Moslem Brotherhood in Egypt has a history of violent action, as well as encouraging the violence of its franchises, most notably Hamas in the Gaza Strip.  For them to claim that they are moderate and peaceful is so absurd that it doesn’t require a response.

The Moslem Brotherhood assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1981 in an effort to turn the country into a Moslem theocracy based on Sharia Law. They never gave up on that vision, and now, with President Hosni Mubarak’s regime apparently on its way out, they may be about to achieve it. This will have reverberations all over the Arab/Moslem world, possibly leading to other Moslem theocracies coming to power all over the region.

Ezekiel 38: 2-5 says;

Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet

As we have said before on this blog, this prophecy is about a war against Israel that will take place in the very near future.  “Libya” in this passage refers to the Arabs of North Africa. The governments in Egypt and Tunisia are about to fall under the influence of Islamic fundamentalists, and the same is likely to happen in Morocco, Algeria, Sudan and even Libya.

Lebanon has now come almost totally under the control of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and its local affiliate, Hizbullah.

The government of Turkey is already heavily influenced by the Turkish branch of the Moslem Brotherhood and Hamas in Gaza is a franchise of the Moslem Brotherhood. The Islamic Action Front, the Jordanian franchise, is eagerly participating in anti-government protests in that country. If the government of Jordan falls, Israel will once again be surrounded by enemies implacably dedicated to her destruction, just as she was in 1967. Only this time, Israel’s enemies won’t be stopped even if they suffer terrible defeats on the battlefield, but will continue fighting until they have been “martyred.”

The scenario prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39 is playing out in front of our eyes. We must pray for the protection of Israel and for the Bible believing Church in these countries. Life was difficult for them under the secular dictatorships that have governed these countries for so many years, but it is about to get much worse.

Brutally anti-Semitic Turkish movie coming to a theater near you

“Valley of the Wolves: Palestine” – to be shown in a dozen European countries and more than 20 others in the Middle East – promises to be a blockbuster with Turkish and Arab audiences.

"Valley of the Wolves" is 'just a movie' and "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was 'just a book.'

In the movie, scenes of massacre during the May 31, 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla incident are followed by Turkish agent Polat Alemdar stepping in to settle the score.

The Turkish hero goes to Israel and accomplishes his mission at the end of 110 minutes of gunfire, punctuated by Israeli atrocities against innocent Palestinians, including the death of a paralyzed boy under the debris of his demolished home.

The movie attracted criticism even before its release as its creators have already been under fire for earlier productions that drew Israeli ire and triggered condemnation at home for glamorizing violence and nationalism.

“Even in the fragments we see… some generalizations about the Jewish people and anti-Semitic approaches that are quite disturbing,” Israeli Ambassador Gabby Levy said earlier this week, quoted by Anatolia news agency.

The movie’s creators reject accusations of enmity towards Jews, arguing they target only Zionism and Israeli oppression of the Palestinians.

“In our movie, we are exposing a fascist, racist ideology and we are trying to kill it before the eyes of the people,” scriptwriter Bahadir Ozdener said.

Actor Necati Sasmaz, who plays Polat Alemdar, insisted: “We have no problem with any people. There is no anti-Semitism here.”

A senior Turkish diplomat commented that the production company was motivated by profit.

“Undoubtedly, it is not very helpful but we cannot prevent them from doing so,” the diplomat said on condition of anonymity.

My comment;

The Turkish producers and actors in this movie have taken a line that is typical of artists everywhere when they make a movie or song that has an obvious political message.

Who?  US? Anti-Semitic?  NEVER!

The Turkish government, which is very authoritarian and certainly could stop the production of a movie like this, is taking a similar approach.

The breakdown in relations between Israel and Turkey is the result of nothing else but a revival of Islamism in Turkey, led by the AKP Party of Prime Minister Reccap Tayyip Erdogan. It is an open secret that the AKP is linked to the Turkish branch of the Moslem Brotherhood, which is the umbrella organization in Egypt that also includes Hamas, the Islamic Action Front in Jordan, and many other terrorist and/or terror supporting groups in different Moslem countries.

This movie, which I’m sure will be very popular in Turkey and the Arab world, is just a symptom of the demonically inspired hatred of Jews and the Jewish State which is growing to epic proportions in the Moslem world.

It is also important to remember that the AKP Party has been voted into power by the Turkish people in a perfectly fair election, just as the Hamas was voted into power by the people in Gaza in 2006, and Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party came to power through democratic means in Germany in 1933. Democracy is not the answer to every problem.

The answer to the rising tide of Islamism in Turkey and elsewhere is to pray for a revival of the Gospel of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus Christ) in those countries. It is only the power of the Gospel that has any chance of touching the hearts of the Moslems, and there will not be peace between Israel and its neighbors until Yeshua, the Prince of Peace, is reigning in the hearts of the people who live in the Middle East.

Romans 1:16;

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
