Islamic supremacist groups: Fall of Morsi shows that “change comes by the bullet alone; NOT the ballot”

And “the truth that is apparent to every reasonable person is that it is a war declared against Islam in Egypt,” which means more violence is in the offing.

“Islamist groups: Egypt’s crackdown vindicates use of violence as political tool,” by Liz Sly for the Washington Post, July 8:

BEIRUT “” The Egyptian army”s escalating crackdown on supporters of the country”s ousted Muslim Brotherhood government is being seized on by many radical Islamists as proof that violence, not democracy, is the only solution to the region’s problems.

In the days since Egypt’s military toppled the country”s first freely elected government, jihadist groups in the region and elsewhere have rushed to assert the futility of elections and Western-style democracy, in statements and in chat forums on jihadi Web sites.

Among them is Afghanistan’s Taliban, which issued a statement Monday condemning the coup against President Mohamed Morsi after Egyptian troops killed at least 51 of his supporters.

“It has become clear,” said Taliban spokesman Muhammad Yusuf, that “so-called elections, the demands of the people, and justice, freedom, security and peace are merely hollow chants and slogans used by the West and the secularists to trick the people,” [sic]

Others had earlier asserted similar sentiments. “When will the Muslim Brotherhood wake up from their deep slumber and realize the futility of their efforts at instituting change?” asked the Somali militant group al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda affiliate, in a comment posted on Twitter after Morsi’s overthrow last week.

“Change comes by the bullet alone; NOT the ballot,” the group said in another tweet.

At least two new jihadi groups have been formed in a bid to counter the challenge to the Brotherhood. Within hours of the shootings Monday, a group calling itself the Abdullah Azzam Brigades of Egypt declared that it had been created to counter the “criminality” underway in the country.

Another hitherto unknown group, calling itself Ansar al-Sharia in Egypt, issued a similar statement last week.

“The truth that is apparent to every reasonable person is that it is a war declared against Islam in Egypt,” it said of the military”s removal of Morsi….

    There is only one benevolent form of change, and that’s movement to freedom.

    Freedom comes only by the bullet when the fighting is followed by freedom, which requires free elections.

    This is especially true with fascist tyrannical regimes, whether they be Islamic, Nazi, Communist, etc.

    The world needs to realize that Islam is not just incompatible with freedom and democracy, but seeks its destruction and the only solution to safeguarding freedom is to eliminate Islam completely.

    There is a big difference between just a Democratic vote by the people and what democracy itself fully entails. A democracy itself gives the power to the people (liberty) and not solely to the elected person.

    A democracy cannot work,and will not work if the voted in person and party is not subject to some form of constitutional laws that protect and preserve the will of the people before the reigns of governing are taken over.

    Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood went about disbanding the limited foundations that Egypt had such as the judicial system within months of his presidency. It was clear that the Egyptians were seeing another Mubarak ,but even much worse.

    The key to liberty in Egypt is to have a constitution in place that limits the powers of the governing body. The best form of government would be one that is more secular in its deliberative body.

    Islam and the imposition of sharia invite the animus of despots,and dictators.

    Islamic flapdoodle!

    All of the civilized countries of former communist Europe, the Baltic countries, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland, East Germany,Macedonia, Bulgaria, etc., proceeded IMMEDIATELY to democracy without any military government.

    Why? They are not Muslim countries. The problem is Islam, rather than democracy.

    Islam is a totalitarian polity incompatible with democracy.

    Even in the election a year ago in Egypt, we saw the forms and institutions of democracy used to subvert it. Christians found they were purged from the voting registars and had no appeal. Women who tried to vote without a burka were turned away. Christians in some regions were threatened with violence if they voted.

    The election of President Morsi and his supporters was a sham.

    They say that Egypt is the world’s largest Arab country. It’s also the most messed up.

    I think maybe that this progression is linear: the more Arabs or Moslems you have, the worse the national situation.

    If that isnt a self fulfilling prophecy.

    Democracy doesnt work for the middle east exactly because of the large number of people with that attitude.

    The thing here is that Jihadists think that the military fight Islam although all military leaders and heads are Muslims! and I think that they even are fanatics Muslims.
    In Short, Islam means stupidity and endless hate and war even between Muslims themselves.

    The truth spoken at last – about Muslim countries.

  10. says

    Islam always imposes itself with the sword, the knife, the boot, the club, the spear, the catapult, or in the modern era, the gun.

    If any Muslim use an A-bomb, the West should immediately bomb Mecca and Medina to prove once for all that Islam is false.

    Well, of course! If Egypt wants to be truly Islamic”like the hell-holes of Afghanistan and Somalia”then they must proceed immediately to violent JIhad.

    And who was Abdullah Azzam? That would be the “Father of Global JIhad”, a vicious Jihadist who was a co-founder of Hamas and Lashkar-e-Taiba. He was a “teacher and mentor” of Osama bin Laden. He was killed by a car bomb in Peshawar, that “garden spot” of Pakistan’s Jihad-ridden North West Frontier in 1989. Suspects include the CIA and Mossad, but most likely he was murdered by rival Jihadists.

    “Reasonable person”, huh? I believe it is safe to say that Muslims quite literally don’t know the meaning of the term…

    Not necessarily. In Poland, East Germany, Latvia, and many other formerly Communist countries, change came without bullets.
    But I have my doubts about whether that will work in Islamic countries. In the Communist countries, the ruling elite no longer really believed the communist myth, and no longer had the stomach for a massive repression of the populists. If Uncle Joe had still been in command, things would have gone diffeerently.
    And that’s the problem with Islamic countries: there are still millions who believe the Moslem myths; and plenty of Uncle Joes to carry out whatever repression is required.
