Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood Reality

If you recall, when the "Arab Spring" took over Egypt and we were promised (by our administration and the MSM) that democracy would reign - there were very few reporting on the realities of the Muslim Brotherhood and their imminent takeover.

Since then, there have been an array of publications and commentaries pointing to the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is indeed taking over Egypt and they may not be as moderate as we were told.

Israel-Egypt Peace Appears To Be Nearing Its End

Egypt's new dominant political force, the Muslim Brotherhood, vowed this week to increase Cairo's hostility toward Israel and possibly even cancel the Camp David Accords.

This was contrary to all the grand statements by Egyptian, Israeli and Western diplomats that the Camp David Accords were in no danger, but comes as absolutely no surprise to observers viewing the situation through the lens of reality.

In an interview with the Arabic newspaper Al-Hayat published on Sunday, Muslim Brotherhood deputy leader Dr. Rashad Bayoumi insisted that his group will never recognize Israel or its right to exist "under any circumstance."

Bayoumi's remarks followed the first two rounds of voting in Egypt's first parliamentary election since the fall of former dictator Hosni Mubarak. The Muslim Brotherhood is on track to control 40 percent of the parliament by the time the third round of voting is completed this week. Allied Islamist party al-Nour will come in second place by winning around 30 percent of the vote.

Western leaders have tried to downplay the fact that Egypt's next government will be controlled by Islamist parties with ties to Hamas and other terror groups. But for anyone listening to Egypt's new leaders themselves, it is clear that Egypt is going in the direction of Iran and that the days of the Camp David Accords are numbered.

Another lie making the media rounds is that Egypt's revolution and even the rise of the Islamists is good for the country's 8-10 million Coptic Christians...the rising Islamic tide in Egypt has claimed many Christian lives, and Coptic leaders have complained that the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists are leaving them out of crucial decision-making processes that will determine the future of Egypt.

By all accounts, Israel will soon have a second Islamic Republic to deal with, this time on its very doorstep. And it will be heavily armed with the best American weapons.

The vice continues to tighten around Israel as the world's anti-Israeli sentiment grows - exactly as we would expect from the prophetic scriptures.

Legalism is never pretty, but rather ugly and very dark...but compassion,is of our Lord Jesus Christ :)

Matthew 23:27-28
27.Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed APPEAR BEAUTIFUL OUTWARD, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
28.Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Matthew 7:1-5
1.Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2.For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3.And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4.Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5.Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Matthew 14:14
14.And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with COMPASSION toward them, and he healed their sick.

MRS C ANONYMOUS…..U scare me AS U R A BULLY….so I hide… u r calling good evil & evil good!... U R BLESSING SIN!!! Get it right….. 4 u r JUDGING ME THAT I SHOW WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHes as told 2 do………………..Mat 7;16-Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them ……………... Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
titus 1:9 to 16 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are MANY UNRULY AND VAIN TALKERS AND AND DECEIVERS specially they of the circumcision: WHOSE MOUTHS MUST BE STOPPED WHO SUBVERT WHOLE HOUSES TEACHING THINGS WHICH THEY OUGHT NOT FOR FILTHY LUCRE’S SAKE. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. WHEREFORE REBUKE!!! THEM SHARPLY !!!*THAT* THEY* MAY* BE* SOUND* IN *THE *FAITH* NOT GIVING HEED TO FABLES AND COMMANDS OF MEN THAT TURN FROM THE TRUTH Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are DEFILED AND UNBELIEVING is nothing pure; but EVEN THEIR MIND AND CONSCIENCE IS DEFIELD. THEY PROFESS TO KNOW GOD BUT IN WORKS THEY DENY HIM BEING ABOMINABLE AND DISOBEDIENT AND UNTO EVERY GOOD WORK REPROBTE.
Titus 3;8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men. But avoid FOOLISH DISPUTES, genealogies, CONTENTIONS, and strivings about the law; for THEY ARE UNPROFIBABLE AND USELESS…... REJECT A DIVISIVE MAN AFTER THE FIRST AND SECOND ADMONITIONR knowing that such a person is WARPED AND SINNING BEING SELF CONDEMNED.
REPENT from ur bad game steven, it ould kill u.

Ya know, this thing we call internet fellowshipping is a funny animal, but sometimes not so different from face to face. It sometimes requires us to make a call, judgment calls really.

I have someone close to me. Very close. She can't seem to get very deep into scripture...not stringing two events or concepts together. Because of this, she often takes the one concept she does get and turns it all around and interprets it completely wrong....not out of intent, but due to inherent limitations. She sometimes focuses on one thing and sees more than is there in it...you might even say compulsive.

I know the heavy duty medication she's on doesn't help. Shucks, it would knock most of us out. Yet, when she starts talking, you can tell she completely believes what she's saying. She's just not capable of more.

So, what's the options here. Stop her from talking completely? Or trusting that the ones doing the hearing will pick up on the problem. Most do if they're paying attention to someone other then themselves. Or trust that the ones that need to understand the Holy Spirit will somehow show the truth?

I don't know, and have talked to many pastors and elders about the situation. The advice has been the same, let her go. She needs to talk, she needs communicate just like any of the rest of us.

Its not Mom's fault. She didn't ask to be this way. She has a problem that I fought and rebelled against for decades. I had to correct every mistake she made, and not always in a kind way. That was my insecurity and immaturity showing. Now I accept it, she would be different if she could be. She still loves Jesus, she still believes in God, she still reads the bible, she still prays on her knees... even at 94 the day before yesterday. She just has issues...and the heavy duty medication makes it even worse from the perspective of understanding something more than one concept or thought deep.

Once you understand she has limitations you realize she needs compassion....not ridicule. But to be compassionate you need to like yourself and be confident in yourself enough that you can accept these issues without being threatened yourself and lashing out which makes everything worse.

She still has a right to live. She still has a right to be around other believers and human beings without some self righteous legalistic bully demanding she repent and see things in ways she is not capable.

mary said...

Beautiful Caver, just beautiful.
You are a deeply compassionate man and I am sure that God is blessing you because of it.
Aren't ya glad that Jesus loves everyone however different we all are, each with our own set of limitations and problems.
We just need to love each other, just as Jesus does, and be patient, and kind and understanding.I will stop now, but just know that I respect you, and Mrs.C obviously knows what a great husband she has. May God richly bless you. I love my online family. mary
And the fruits of the Spirit are
goodness,faithfulness,gentleness, and self-control.

mary said...

Caver, I meant to tell you that my parents are 92 and 97. Wow, am I blessed to have them here with us yet. mary

WVBORN56 said...

Wow Mary you have a nice gene pool in your family. My parents are 89 and 85 so we are not too far behind. It is indeed a blessing to have godly parents. I've been hoping and praying they make the rapture.

mary said...

WV, my sister and I say the same thing. "wouldn't it be neat if mom and dad didn't see death, but the rapture with us?"

Caver said...

Mary, thank you so much for the very kind words. I am humbled.

Yep, I have wondered as of late if Mom might get to experience the big "Poof" with us, and not taste death either. Its a very comforting feeling.

Again, thank you.

Don't be mad, Stephen. We are supporting you .

Me, too, Caver , I know EXACTLY how you feel.

Romans 15 : 1Now we that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2Let each one of us please his neighbor for that which is good, unto edifying. 3For Christ also pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell upon me. 4For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that through patience and through comfort of the scriptures we might have hope. 5Now the God of patience and of comfort grant you to be of the same mind one with another according to Christ Jesus: 6that with one accord ye may with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
7Wherefore receive ye one another, even as Christ also received you, to the glory of God."
1 Thessalonians 5:14 "And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone."


Caver said...

Stephen, may I offer up a word or two. This has come through many years of growing, pain, making mistakes, and handling "stuff" the wrong way.

When someone reacts as strongly as did Anon, or whomever she's calling herself today, just filter out the hate. Sometimes there's a nugget of good information there, sometimes not. But the hate, inflammatory words, and anger is often directed more at themselves....not you. They don't like the person they see in the mirror...that hate and anger reflects their own insecurities than true anger at you.

In short, their need to lord over you and put you down in harsh and ugly ways is a way to cover up and mask themselves. If they were, somehow, able to partially overcome their own problems they feel you are exactly like them and should do exactly as they did. Compassion and understanding is not in their bag of attributes.

In short, they seek to magnify themselves by degrading you in ugly and inappropriate ways.

If you left, they would just move on to their next target They always need someone to degrade in order to lift themselves up.

They don't realize how transparent it is....most of us see their actions for what they are after a while. They are to be pitied.

Like WV said the other day, I also applaud your changing. You are stating to engage in conversations not associated with either the AC or EW. I know it hasn't been easy, but it is healthy. Its welcomed.

The language you used above, however, is not. It is offensive I'm sure most of us would appreciate it if you would run it through a filter before posting...just sit back and take a few deep breaths before posting, calm down a bit, get the composure, and remember the audience. These aren't the right words for most of that audience.

Thanks Brother!

Look, when I get mad i get mad.
And it's NOT that I am changing.
I am still me. I have no problem
getting along with people but when they cause trouble, time to get even.

This is how it is with Anon and me.
This person DOES NOT want to indentify themselves, HEY, i do not
hide, you guys all know who i am, right ??

I got NO reason to hide.


I am good at that.

i notice when I get really mad like the last post, Anon shuts up,
amazing but strange.

IF I get to Heaven I will FILE
a complaint with Jesus about this.
this person WILL BE REVEALED,
I tell you that straight out.

Stephen we should all be "changing" as Christians. It is called growing in Christ. I hope I am not the same person at the end of 2012 than I am at the start of the year. I want to grow. I want to be a better ambassador for Christ each year he tarries. There is no shame in changing. In fact there is only shame in stayig the same.

Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. For the life I now live in the body, I live by the faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

Caver said...

Stephen, I echo WV's comments.

For many of us, we actively ask the Lord to grow us in His image, to work His perfect plan in our life. He does hear you and He will do it.

He will grow you continually if you ask Him to and give yourself to Him. He's a wonderful Father.

God Bless!

Wow! Stephen, you have been sharing a lot more with us lately and the other day your quote from Matt. was insuch perfect timing!
Caver-oh boy! I'm adopted! Unfortunately by a horrible mean evil person! There wasnt a day in my life with her where I wasn't beaten, starved, tormented physically, mentally or emotionally. I could never understand this as a child nor as a grownup. She takes great pleasure in other people's pain snd does everything possible to cause them more. I finally at the age of 45, had to step back and cease any communication with her for my own mental health. I still send her cards and presents. If I were to go to her, which I made the mistake of doing this summer, she only breaks my heart, crushes my spirit and attacks me. It is so sad :( How am I supposed to honor someone like this? I don't want to break a commandment and this has baffled me for years..no pastor has been able to help me with an answer either! I am proud of you for trying to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord! You are a wonderful person! As for your mom...I believe George Burns once said something like once you are over 80 you can say what you want because everyone thinks you are senile anyway! ;) Just bear on througj, its part of our enduring I suppose! She is very lucky to have you as a son! God Bless! ally

DrNofog said...

Scott, I hafta assume that you have edit functions on comments, same as other sites, right?

As we get closer to the Consummation, we are also under increasing attack, and God uses the pressure to reveal many things to us all.

I hate to see you hafta go to full moderation, but I also don't like seeing certain things in print, especially on a site such as yours.

Yet, I am not asking, nor do I want you to have to delete comments of things that are revealing and potentially for our growth in the Lord, as any further comments and instructions in righteousness would not always make sense with the basis of context removed.

I have seen other sites edit with good restraint, and if I can find the time, would like to comment on the "issues" in context.

Scott said...

DrNo - I agree. I guess I need to go back to reviewing all comments before they are posted --- the only problem with this is the fact that on many days, I don't get back to the blog until evening after the am postings. I hate to have people wait that long to get their comments up

DrNofog said...

Gee Scott, I wasn't axing you to swing the sledgehammer!

I thot Drs are sposed to be deft with the fingers, seamlessly inserting a few dashes or asterisks fer the surgically excised offending characters!?

And besides, I was led to believe that you had at least 1 or 2 friends that could be trusted that could assist with a little clean-up...

Scott said...

Whats wrong with a sledgehammer? :)

Mrs.C said...

Hi Brother Scott,:)
LOL NOTHING is wrong with a "sledgehammer" :) lol

God Bless You! :)

Mrs.C said...

Hi Dr.No,:)
Very interesting posts you made...very interesting and revealing indeed...
Hope all is well with your Wife as we all continue to Pray for you both. :)

God Bless!
