It will lead to democracy, freedom and stability in the region, he says.
Oh, really? And where exactly has the rule of Islamic law — Sharia, not secular rule such as has prevailed in Turkey since the 1920s, or the Arab nationalist mixture of Western secular law and some Islamic law that has prevailed in many Muslim Arab countries for the last half-century or so, up until the “Arab Spring” — ever led to democracy? Ever? Again, secular Turkey was established in the context of a rejection of political Islam, not an embrace of it.
And where has Sharia ever led to freedom for women or non-Muslims? Ever? And stability? Where have Sharia states ever been centers of regional stability?
Jimmy Carter continues to aid and abet the forces of oppression. “Carter asks U.S. to support Islamic rule in Egypt,” from Aswat Masriya, January 19 (thanks to Twostellas):
Former American President, Jimmy Carter, has called out for the U.S. to support Islamic rule in Egypt, pointing out that it will lead to democracy, freedom and stability in the region.
Carter also told the CNN that Egypt is currently embracing freedom, explaining that it finally now has a real chance to elect a democratic government that protects human rights.
Asking for Americans” support, the Former President hopes that the U.S. will not reject the Egyptian people’s choice like they did after the Palestinian elections – where Hamas was isolated after their winning.
“We must not repeat that grave mistake with Egypt. I think we could have established peace in the region if we had accepted and supported the people’s choice in Palestine. That is the lesson we have learnt… and Egypt’s choice should be given a chance,” Carter said.
