1979 Iran vs. 2011 Egypt: A Comparison

The overthrow of the Shah of Iran in 1979 cleared the way for an Islamic Shiite theocracy whose face was Ayatollah Khomeini. In order to defeat the Shah, the Islamists needed the help of the left. In simple terms, the leftist guerrillas that aided in the Shah's overthrow provided the quintessential example of the moniker 'Useful Idiots' because once they were no longer useful, the Islamists executed them. Despite this very recent history, the left in 2011 appears to be falling for the same thing in Egypt.

In an article (photo of relevant portion) that appeared in the Middle East Journal in 1987 entitled The New Iranian Left, Nozar Alaolmolki explains how it happened:
...the leftists were able to mobilize more than half-a-million supporters and sympathizers for the May Day rally in Tehran alone. This trend continued during the next few months until the Islamic Republic consolidated itself and then turned against the leftists. The Tudeh Party was spared initially, but by 1983 all leftist organizations, including the Tudeh, were banned and a large number of their active members executed, imprisoned, forced underground or otherwise eliminated from the scene.
Ironically, before his overthrow, the Shah fled to Egypt.

Fast forward to 2011 and the only differences between the situation between Iran and Egypt have to do with the brand of Islam behind the revolution, the name of the two countries' respective leaders, and geography. The uprising in that country is backed by the Muslim Brotherhood, which has the support of the left. Specifically, the Obama administration and the likes of Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and Code Pink, were all instrumental in forming the Free Gaza Movement, a group allied with the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

For as intellectual as Ayers, Dohrn, and the rest of the elite leftwing in the United States who either support or act as apologists for Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups like CAIR like to be portrayed, they sure are stupid.

Democrat: Limbaugh Bad, Anti-American Song Good

A state Senator in California is outraged that Rush Limbaugh would mock the speech of Chinese president Hu Jintao during his recent trip for a state dinner at the White House. Conspicuously absent from Sen. Leland Yee has been any denouncement of a the pro-Chinese / anti-American song played at that state dinner by a Chinese pianist named Lang Lang. This selective outrage should immediately call into question, Yee's loyalty to the Constitution he took an oath to uphold.

Via the AP:
Rush Limbaugh's imitation of the Chinese language during a recent speech made by Chinese President Hu Jintao has stirred a backlash among Asian-American lawmakers in California and nationally.

California state Sen. Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, is leading a fight in demanding an apology from the radio talk show host for what he and others view as racist and derogatory remarks against the Chinese people.

In recent days, the state lawmaker has rallied civil rights groups in a boycott of companies like Pro Flowers, Sleep Train and Domino's Pizza that advertise on Limbaugh's national talk radio show.
Yet, where is Yee's outrage about Lang Lang performing a song at the White House less than ten days earlier in which American troops were referred to as "jackals?"

While the White House wasn't silent on Lang Lang's performance, it DID defend it by saying it was not insulting. No word yet on what the official Obama administration response to Limbaugh will be.

With that as a backdrop, sit back and enjoy a little Rush...

Is Obama Administration Backing Egyptian Uprising?

It certainly is interesting to learn that the United States is apparently and secretly backing the uprising that is taking place in Egypt but seemed almost disinterested in the uprising that took place in Iran in 2009 - 2010. This revelation is the result of more Wikileaks documents in which a group known as the April 6 youth movement - a facebook group in Egypt with approximately 70,000 members has been coordinating anti-government activities for some time.

Via the Telegraph:
The American Embassy in Cairo helped a young dissident attend a US-sponsored summit for activists in New York, while working to keep his identity secret from Egyptian state police.

On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told US diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011.
That summit took place from December 3-5 of 2008. Coincidentally, that was during the transition period into and out of the White House from the Bush administration to the Obama administration, with Obama having been elected one month earlier.

HERE is the document that details the summit as well as one of the April 6 dissidents.

Connecting a few dots here, it is important to keep in mind that the revolt in Egypt is supported by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is publicly saying it is calling for non-violence. However, that same Muslim Brotherhood has been developing a political apparatus in the United States for decades, with many of its members having strong influence at the highest levels of U.S. government. The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) to name just a few.

The Muslim Brotherhood spawned Hamas, which spawned CAIR.

For example, Obama's Islamic Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) is a man named Rashad Hussain, who has connections to the MSA. He spoke at a 2004 MSA event where he praised convicted terrorist Sami al-Arian. Hussain tried to deny it but was caught on audio and still wasn't fired by the White House. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) is a Muslim congressman with very questionable ties to CAIR as well.

It isn't just the leftwing of American politics that has been infiltrated by people with ties to the Brotherhood. Suhail Khan, an alleged conservative is on the Board of the American Conservative Union, which is responsible for the annual CPAC convention, has ties to the Brotherhood as well. His father founded the MSA and was a high ranking official inside the ISNA. Khan had inside access to the White House in the early years of the Bush administration.
