Ramadan Exposed (Again)

Jul 10, 2013 22:23

Ramadan has followers in the West, unfortunately, because he speaks out of both sides of his mouth and tells audiences what they want to hear. Events such as July the 3rd in Egypt are like spotlights turned on where we could only see dimly, before, what the beliefs and convictions are of people. I make the following observation after reading this article about Ramadan's reaction to July the 3rd. If you listen to any Muslim Brotherhood member or supporter in Egypt, or outside of Egypt, since the removal of Morsi, all that you will hear any of them say that the Morsi government did wrong was that it made mistakes. They never say what those mistakes were. I submit to you this: if the President of the US, or any truly free, democratic government in the world, did the kind of things Morsi did in the past year, he or she would have been impeached, in a presidential system, or he or she would have with certainty been forced to call elections, as in a parliamentary system, not just because he mismanaged the economy but governed in a wholly undemocratic manner (despite espousing democracy). Ramadan is like Morsi and the rest of the Brotherhood in this regard. They tell you what you want to hear, like about democracy, but what they say is not really who or what they are.
