Egypt liberated

Gepubliceerd Wednesday, February 16, 2011 in Weblogs · Weblogs Bart

Jerusalem, February 13, 2011. Egypt celebrates. I have seldom seen such an explosion of emotional joy and exuberance as after the announcement of President Mubarak that he was stepping down. The power is temporarily handed over to the army. What a liberation feast. How moving it was to watch.

The first democratic elections will be held in September.
Thirty years of dictatorship came abruptly to an end. For friend and foe this revolution came out of the blue. Anyone who would have predicted at the beginning of this year that the Mubarak era was going to end soon through a revolution, would have been mocked.

The Egyptian population suffered under a tough dictatorship. In 1981 a state of emergency was declared after the assassination of then president Anwar al Sadat by muslim extremists. This state of emergency was still in force until last week. This ordinance gave Mubarak a chance to keep the extremist Muslim Brotherhood under control. But it also left the infamous secret service free to randomly arrest residents and subdue them through torture. It was a reign of terror.

Mubarak guaranteed the implementation of the Camp David peace accord between Egypt and Israel in 1978. Egypt continued to hold the western course that was initiated by Sadat. However, the Egyptians never became best friends with their neighbor Israel. Antisemitism is rampant in the Egyptian society. Though many Jewish tourists visited Egypt, only a handful of Egyptians visited neighboring Israel.

Finally the old, tough, stubborn president threw in the towel. He was cornered.
What an incredible climax. Freedom is a wonderful thing.
As an eyewitness, living in a free democracy, you realize how blessed we are in the free west. Humans are created to be free and creative. A government that restricts and frustrates this fundamental freedom is criminal and should therefore step down.

The euphoria is great. The western leaders unanimously agree that the people of Egypt triumphed. That is wonderful. Not only the western leaders, but also the extremist muslim regimes share in this celebration.
Hamas, the party of democratically chosen muslim extremists, who turned the Gaza strip into a mini-dictatorship in no time, eagerly congratulated the Egyptian people with their victory. Hezbollah did the same. Even Ahmadinejad, the subtle dictator of the most extreme muslim nation in the world, Iran, held a special congratulation speech. “A new Middle East is emerging without the US and Israel” he boasted. The hypocrite. When, just like in Egypt, the people of Iran recently flocked to the streets to protest against election fraud and to demand this fool to step down, the insurrection was put down violently. Where was the endorsement from President Obama then? Where was the loud exhortation from the European leaders? The Iranian people rallied in their despair: “Obama, where are you?” Today Ahmadinejad is still in power, with a smirk on his face.
A short flash back in time wouldn’t hurt. In 1979 a similar revolt broke out in Iran. The shah of Persia fled the country. There was a national celebration. There was a massive euphoria as well. Also this uprising received the support from the US. Iran finally freed! The ayatollah Khomeini returned from living in exile and hijacked the revolt. In the meantime we know to which worldwide disasters this muslim coup has led. It was Khomeini who decided from then on to let islam rule outside her own borders. It was him who boasted that the whole world should bow for Mohammed and his followers. Iran would never be the same again. That’s right, also the world would never be the same again. We were confronted by global muslim terror.

Today I hear Obama declare the same thing during his congratulation speech. “Egypt will never be the same anymore.” I don’t doubt his words. But I fear that the future of Egypt will look differently from the fantasies of Obama. The US was completely mistaken in their assessment of the Iranian revolution. It would surprise me if the US is not seriously mistaken again.

The whole world held their breath. It is not a coincidence that this Egyptian revolt takes place right next to Israel. It is not my intention to spoil the fun, however I cannot help but sound the alarm. The fact that Ahmadinejad and his regime are so excited about this revolution should raise a red flag for many. Ahmadinejad has only one goal. The ‘twelfth’ imam has to come. The Mahdi, the muslim messiah who will come to power through a global revolution, is one step closer. For muslims this is a big step forward. Together with this Mahdi they will overpower the world.
Meanwhile we are training tin soldiers in Afghanistan who will dutifully join this worldwide muslim war. They probably speak a few words Dutch.

I received a number of emails from dear christians who claim that the days of Egypt’s turn to christianity has come. I will quote the text for you:


In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth.”


Isaiah 19:23, 24

Individual Christians and even some organizations are carrying this prophetic bible verse as their banner. You can imagine this. Egypt bows before the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It’s ‘wishful thinking’ (and much prayer).
Again I have to be a stick in the mud. This text does not relate to our days. This will happen later during the messianic thousand year reign, but in our days the contrary will be the case. Read with me:


O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still. See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you–


Ps 83:1-5

What follows is a summary of a great number of islamic nations, among which the Egyptian. That’s what’s going on today. I already reminisced about it. It is not a coincidence that this revolution takes place right next to Israel. The muslim trap is pulled tighter around Israel. Iran, Syria, Lebanon (Hezbollah), and the Gaza strip (Hamas) are already blessed with an extremist anti-semitic muslim regime. What will happen in Egypt? Will also this sincere liberation revolution be hijacked by the Muslim Brotherhood?

The muslims seize their opportunity under the cloak of ‘reforms’.
It is time to wake up from your peace-sleep. Right now it is important to be alert.
In all sincerity I wish the beautiful Egyptian people liberty and shalom. They yearn for it. But alarm bells are going off in my spirit.
Celebrate with the Egyptians, but be on your alert.

See you on the walls of Jerusalem.
