Some Hoax

Evidently the MoBros don’t really get the concept of a hoax. Back in July, Joe posted this: Excuse Me While I Pound My Drum that included this little snippet:

Calls to Destroy Egypt’s Great Pyramids Begin

According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘ithose “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax.    Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”

Well, the lefties and the Muslim apologists jumped all over it, calling it a hoax:

Calls from a Bahraini Sunni cleric to destroy Egypt’s Great Pyramids have been revealed as a hoax. The demands were made from a Twitter account which claimed to be owned by Bahrain’s President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud.

In the post, a person masquerading as al-Mahmoud labeled the pyramids “idolatrous” and asked Egypt’s new president to destroy them, as Egypt’s Daily News reports.

Several conservative websites used the news to raise alarm over the rise of Egypt’s Islamist government.

Well, I guess the word “hoax” in both Arabic and lib-speak means: “yeah, this is really happening” – mostly because it is. Reported today:

An Egyptian jihad leader, with self-professed links to the Taliban, called for the “destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt,” drawing ties between the Egyptian relics and Buddha statues, local media reported this week.

Murgan Salem al-Gohary, an Islamist leader twice-sentenced under former President Hosni Mubarak for advocating violence, called on Muslims to remove such “idols.”

“All Muslims are charged with applying the teachings of Islam to remove such idols, as we did in Afghanistan when we destroyed the Buddha statues,” he said on Saturday during a television interview on an Egyptian private channel, widely watched by Egyptian and Arab audiences.

“God ordered Prophet Mohammed to destroy idols,” he added. “When I was with the Taliban we destroyed the statue of Buddha, something the government failed to do.”

His comments came a day after thousands of ultraconservative Islamists gathered in Tahrir Square to call for the strict application of Sharia law in the new constitution.

Hmmmmmm. Joe was right…again.

  1. I’m really starting to think that if we just repost the previous years posting we be very accurate and won’t have to work nearly as hard as when we first posted them….. Being right sucks…. especially when it comes at the cost of your Country. 😦

  2. Utah,

    I wish I could take some credit for or find some satisfaction in these words:

    Hmmmmmm. Joe was right…again.

    But I can’t. I didn’t do anything special. In fact, all I did was apply the rules of logic and right reason to current events. I keep trying to tell people that “seeing the future” is easy: you simply look for what they are saying, accept them at their word and follow that to its logical conclusion(s). Do this for a while and the next thing you know, people start thinking you’re an oracle when all you’re really doing is following natural law and being foolish enough to share what you see with others 😦

  3. That perception won’t be lifted until the guillotine blade is lifted…and all the libs see for themselves that the Muslims hate them more than they hate the right…

  4. Lately I have been wondering whether the representative form of government established in the Constitution can accommodate Islam and the Sharia law that comes with it. I believe in religious tolerance, I really do, but I also believe in being realistic and cautious. Evidently, a lot of Americans have faith that we can achieve a one-world-government, where Muslims, Jews, Christians, Socialists, and so on can all just learn to get along. They say, give the Islamic countries time to adopt civility. But haven’t these countries been going in the opposite direction of, and in some cases waging war against, western culture? In reaction, some state lawmakers are taking steps to ensure that international laws will not be enforced in their borders, and of course these steps are labeled Islamophobic.

    Anybody have any idea where this is going?

    • Justin,

      Have you missed my posts on Islam?

      As for the American ideal and our founders: they specifically told us that Islam is not compatible with our system of government, HOWEVER, as strongly as they felt about Islam, they felt even stronger about what they called infidelity, or atheism. They said that, before they would have this nation become a nation of infidels, they would rather we all become Muhamadites, or Muslims.

      Chew on that one for a while 😉

    • “Evidently, a lot of Americans have faith that we can achieve a one-world-government, where Muslims, Jews, Christians, Socialists, and so on can all just learn to get along.”

      Evidently, they are wrong.

  5. It’s not hoax. It’s true. I watched the show in Arabic. It’s sad that these ignorant people are gaining much of ground in Egypt.

  6. And… If memory serves another radical called for the same sometime this summer. Sad. But it’s a long history in multiple religions- including christianity. Indeed- all the Abrahamic religions- Islam, jeudaism, and christianity have strong prohibitions on idolatry and a long history of destruction of such.
