Remember the Arab Spring back in 2011? It was presented to the world as a spontaneous uprising of angry Egyptian young people – demanding that Mubarak step down. Other Arabic countries were taking part in the uprising as well.
Little did the world know that the so-called “Arab Spring” was orchestrated by Obama with George Soros providing the funding. Mohamed Morsi, head of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and very close friend of BHO, stood by and watched as Egypt erupted into violence. BHO told Mubarak that it was “Time to go.” Obama and his administration had high hopes to topple the secular governments of many Arabic countries, and replace them with the Muslim Brotherhood.
After Mubarak finally left the country and there was talk of new elections, Morsi promised that he would not consider running for office. He said that he would be available in an advisory capacity. I remember thinking that he was lying to the world, and would jump at the chance to be the president of Egypt; and he ran and he won.
But then in 2013, the people of Egypt realized that Morsi was going to instate sharia law in the country. The military took Morsi out of power, and el-Sisi (general of the military) became president. The Muslim Brotherhood was declared a terrorist organization and banned from Egypt. Morsi sits in an Egyptian prison to this day, along with hundreds of his ilk.
From the Washington Times:
Obama secretly backing Muslim Brotherhood
President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11. The directive was produced in 2011 and outlines administration support for political reform in the Middle East and North Africa, according to officials familiar with the classified study.
White House National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan declined to comment on PSD-11. “We have nothing for you on this,” she said.
The directive outlines why the administration has chosen the Muslim Brotherhood, which last year was labeled a terrorist organization by the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates as a key vehicle of U.S. backing for so-called political reform in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia in recent months appears to be moderating its opposition to the Brotherhood in a bid to gain more regional support against pro-Iran rebels in Yemen.
The UAE government also has labeled two U.S. affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society, as terrorist support groups. Both groups denied the UAE claims. Egypt is considering imposing a death sentence on Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood-backed former president who was ousted in military coup in July 2013.  – source (Emphasis mine)
I have stated in many articles that in the Middle East there are bad guys, and there are REALLY BAD guys. Assad is no angel – that is for sure. But before the so-called rebels began to attempt to overthrow his government, he had been good to the Christians of Syria and has left Israel alone.
The So-Called Rebels
Shall we call them rebels, or perhaps it would be more accurate to call the majority of these fighters – ISIS. I remember watching the interview with Assad on American TV, and then hearing that our government was pledging arms and money to these rebels. I wanted to SHOUT at the TV – I’m known to do this!
I believed that the “rebels” were the ones who used chemical weapons – NOT Assad! But this was the narrative being pushed by the Obama administration. They were deceiving the world into believing that Assad did these horrific things to his own people.
How do you think ISIS has so many American made arms, ammunition and tanks? WE have been propping them up from the beginning. Do you see why BHO speaks of “containing” ISIS and not destroying them?
So, now according to our president, it’s time for Assad to go. He has even given the month in which this will happen. I wonder what Putin thinks of this?
Will we see Damascus as a ruinous heap?
“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap” (Isaiah 17:1). KJV
2016 – What will it bring?
2016 is sure to be a year filled with wars and rumors of wars. I am also expecting many natural disasters – well, perhaps not natural, but made to look that way. But I digress – that is a topic for a future article!
Do you belong to Christ?
If you are reading this piece and you have never repented of your sins, and trusted in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, TODAY is the day. Don’t wait! No one is promised tomorrow or even another minute! If you die and are not saved, you will spend eternity in hell.
