History is Repeating Itself in Islamic Nations

History is Repeating Itself in Islamic Nations

CAIRO (AP) – Egypt’s military deployed on the streets of Cairo to enforce a nighttime curfew as the sun set Friday on a day of rioting and violent chaos that was a major escalation in the challenge to authoritarian President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule.

Still thousands in the capital Cairo defied a nationwide night curfew and were trying to storm two major government buildings – the state TV and the Foreign Ministry. Others were praying on the streets after nightfall.

I don’t know how many of my readers are old enough to be familiar with the Iranian revolution, or to have been working in the run-up to military or covert operations in response to that event, but with all this BS in Egypt, I am having a serious case of deja vu.

It seems that some in Iran are feeling the same way.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – A senior Iranian cleric says protests in Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen are evidence that his country’s 1979 Islamic revolution is being replayed.

Addressing thousands of worshippers at Tehran University Friday, Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said a new Middle East is emerging based on Islamic values, not U.S. desires.

Violent protests in Tunisia toppled former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and a “Friday of Wrath” has engulfed Egypt, a U.S. ally. Protesters in Yemen also called for the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has ruled for nearly 32 years.

For those not familiar with the Iranian Revolution;

The Iranian Revolution

The Iranian Revolution (also known as the Islamic Revolution or 1979 Revolution refers to events involving the overthrow of Iran’s monarchy (Pahlavi dynasty) under Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and its replacement with an Islamic republic under Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the revolution.

Demonstrations against the Shah began in January 1978. Between August and December 1978 strikes and demonstrations paralyzed the country. The Shah left Iran for exile in mid-January 1979, and in the resulting power vacuum two weeks later Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Tehran to a greeting by several million Iranians. The royal regime collapsed shortly after on February 11 when guerrillas and rebel troops overwhelmed troops loyal to the Shah in armed street fighting. Iran voted by national referendum to become an Islamic Republic on April 1, 1979, and to approve a new theocratic constitution whereby Khomeini became Supreme Leader of the country, in December 1979.

Which, in turn, led to this;

The Iranian Hostage Crisis

The Iran hostage crisis was a diplomatic crisis between Iran and the United States. Fifty-two US citizens were held hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981, after a group of Islamic students and militants took over the Embassy of the United States in support of the Iranian Revolution.
SOURCE

The reason I believe history IS repeating itself? It’s very simple actually.

When the Iranian Revolution occurred, when the hostage crisis took place, Jimmy Carter was President of the United States of America.

The USA was in a serious state of decline, our oil sources were supposedly compromised and we had what was thought to be the worst President that could possibly be in office during a time of crisis.

Fast forward to today. Change the names a bit, replace Iran with Egypt, replace Carter with Obama and then look at the situation OUR nation faces right now.

Oil prices just jumped $4.00 a barrel. Our access to the Suez Canal is in serious jeopardy, our economy is teetering at best and Barack Hussein Obama IS the worst president we could possibly have in office at a time like this, or, quite frankly, at ANY time.

And then we have a moonbat calling for the USA to cut aid to Israel.

GOP senator favors cutting US aid to Israel

WASHINGTON
— Tea party-backed Republican Sen. Rand Paul favors cutting U.S. aid to Israel as part of a deficit-driven effort to slash government spending by $500 billion this year, drawing criticism from Democrats and Republicans who argue the U.S. must be unwavering in its support for the longtime Mideast ally.
SOURCE

I am all for cutting foreign aid, ALL foreign aid, to ANY nation that is an Islamic nation. Start with Egypt, Afghanistan, Iraq, Gaza, Palestine, Pakistan and any other anti-American nation that is enthralled with the practice of Islam.

To cut off funds and support from Israel could be the most horrendous, and quite possibly, the most catastrophic action that the U.S. Government could engage in.

Why does the United States insist on propping up our enemies, Muslims, and we do, to the tune of BILLIONS of our hard earned tax dollars, all the while letting some MORON like Rand Paul preach his screed encouraging the defunding of Israel.

Many have long believed, and I am one of them, that Ron Paul is an anti-Semitic racist and a supporter of the Nazis and Stormfront. I have to seriously wonder, just how close to the tree did THIS nut fall?

Republican Senator-elect Rand Paul, probably the best-known of the tea party figures who won election last week, brushed aside talk that the GOP establishment might co-opt newly-elected members of the movement and said, “I think the tea party actually is co-opting Washington.”

“We’re coming. We’re proud. We’re strong. We’re loud,” Paul said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “And we’re going to co-opt. And, in fact, I think we’re already shaping the debate.” SOURCE

“We’re coming. We’re proud. We’re strong. We’re loud,” and if Rand Paul is a leader of this organization, ‘they’re STUPID too.

    I do believe that all foreign aid should be cut. Let us start with that Tower of Babel known as the United Nations.

  2. TexasFred says:

    Katie — Fully agreed…

  3. Top John says:

    The naysayers and those in favor of perpetual government rule will shout you down as a “fear monger,” or whatever their phrase of the week is. It doesn’t matter to them that the rest of the world is sprinting toward the 7th century; these sheeple have ipads and cannot be bothered right now.

  4. TexasFred says:

    John — Many are seeing this as a *Democracy riot*, and I hope I am wrong, but I don’t see it that way, I see a repeat of Iran, circa 1979… Seriously, I hope I AM wrong…

  5. Robert says:

    This is a big deal and to anyone that thinks it’s not you are a fool.

    History is repeating itself Fred, there is something that hits me hard though, One of the first things the Egyptian Govt. did was kill the internet. Mmmm, what is this talk of giving the POTUS a kill switch? Mmmm not a big deal right guys?

    Obama is the perfect person in the WH for this, just like Carter was…. Sarcasm.

    Islamic radicals see Obama as he has ACTED not spoke. He’s acted like a weakling, he’s bowed to everyone, he’s apologized for everything. The world sees “Duh One” as a short termer. And they know the USA is headed for a dramatic RIGHT TURN. That’s not good for them so they are preping the battlefield.

  6. TexasFred says:

    Rob — And they have their *agents of death and destruction* already in position in this nation…

    Open borders… What a concept… 😐

  7. TexasFred says:

    Here is what I see shaping up, Mubarak may step down, Egypt may gain a new government, possibly a dictatorship, possibly a democracy, or something somewhere in the middle…

    No matter what happens, if Iran and this *Muslim brotherhood* don’t like the outcome, there will be an immediate insurgency rise up in Cairo much like that seen in Baghdad…

    Freedom is NOT free, but if this truly IS a *Revolt for Democracy*, I wish the Egyptian people much luck, they WILL need it…

  8. ng4779 says:

    BBC reporting that the UK and US embassies are surrounded by tanks. 1979? Sounds like history repeating itself.

    BBC News – Egypt unrest

  9. Bob Mack says:

    I agree with you, Fred, re: Iranian Revolution redux. There was a piece in the Telegraph UK indicating secret US support for the Egyptian protesters over the last 3 years, & a piece in WND (which source I always ingest with a grain of salt) that said Islamists were behind the protest movements. Given the Islamophilia of the Obama Administration, it wouldn’t surprise me if both stories turned out to be true.

  10. Cutting funding to Israel?

    I’ll respond in three words:

    “That’s just WRONG.”

    BZ

  11. BobF says:

    We cannot abandon or cut off Israel. Here is the biblical reason why with historical facts to back it.

    Genesis 12:1-3 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great ; and thou shalt be a blessing:And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed .

    God’s blessing upon a people and nation will depend on how they treat Israel. God promised this to Abraham, the Father of the Jews.

    Look at history

    Alexander the Great, upon being met by a Prophet of Israel and hearing the scriptures when prophesied of him, got off his horse and worshiped the God of Israel. Years later, after Alexander, the Greeks enslaved the Jews. Where is the Greek Empire?

    Nebuchadnezzar took the Jews into captivity but recognized the God of Israel and promoted Jews to high positions in his government. Rulers after him enslaved the Jews. Where is the Babylonian Empire?

    Pharaoh made Joseph (a Jew) governor over all of Egypt and welcomed the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 400 years later the Jews were enslaved and Moses was sent to lead them out of captivity. Pharaoh’s army drowned in the Red Sea trying to bring the Jews back into slavery. Look at Egypt today.

    Rome conquered Israel but allowed them self rule. Rome later sent armies to crush the Jews. Where is the mighty Roman Empire?

    You know, there may just be something to that statement “I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee”?

    Sometimes we need to look at our present situation through the long lenses of time and history

  12. Longstreet says:

    BobF is right on. Modern Americans have little Bible literacy and practically no knowledge or sense of history. That explains, at least for me, how we came to elect Obama in the first place. Now we are paying the price.

    JDL

  13. capitalisa says:

    I can’t help but think that Obama is feeling quite giddy over this development in Egypt. He will not do anything that could possibly put the brakes on the Muslim Brotherhood’s taking control of the government.

  14. minuteman26 says:

    Just my opinion but when all is said and done the Egyptian Army will rule the day. They don’t want Mubarak’s son to rule and they want to keep The Muslim Brotherhood in check. Will be very bloody but the army will select Egypt’s next leader. Hopefully through this process much of The Muslim Brotherhood will be eradicated.

  15. I so agree with Katie… the United Nations needs to get the boot first. Great piece Fred. Very eye opening.
