And I'll bet you a highly inflated dollar that Obama backs the Muslim Brotherhood again in Kuwait (and Bahrain and Jordan and Syria, etc.).
How is the media going to sell this steaming pile of dung? Arab Spring? Or Islamic winter? Or will the media go into high gear whitewashing the Muslim Brotherhood, telling us how 'secular' they are?
"Muslim Brotherhood now targets Kuwait" Madhav Nalapat, Guardian (thanks to Tom)
The Muslim Brotherhood succeeded in winning power in Egypt and Tunisia, and in ensuring the demise of Muammar Gaddafi and his regime. The next target was Syria, where the Brotherhood's sponsors in Ankara and Doha are working to ensure that Bashar Assad follows Gaddafi into the grave, no matter at what cost to the rest of the population. Although there was a time when the Brotherhood and the US opposed each other, these days there is forming a partnership between the two, which is reminiscent of the 1980s, when the Afghan war brought an immense volume of assistance to Wahhabism, in order to defeat the Soviets in Afghanistan. The blowback from that partnership has been a sharp rise in fundamentalism in Muslim-majority countries across the globe, and a consequent spread of both Khomeinism as well as Wahhabism across the world. Although 9/11 resulted in a snapping of ties between the US (and its allies) with the Wahhabis, the common battle against Gaddafi in Libya once again brought them closer, as has the joint operation to destroy the Assad regime in Syria.
It is this rejuvenated alliance between the NATO powers and the Wahhabis (including the Muslim Brotherhood in its numerous offshoots) that has been the cause of the uncharacteristic silence of Washington, Paris and London about the manner in which President Mohammad Morsi of Egypt has sought to make himself even more of a dictator in Egypt than Hosni Mubarak ever dared to be. While Adolf Hitler got passed an "Act for the Amelioration of the Suffering of the People" in 1933 that gave him total authority over the state, draining the same away from the legislature, Morsi has gone one better, getting a decree empowering himself to be passed by Morsi himself. The intention behind such a power grab is clearly to put in place a Constitution for Egypt which reflects the tenets of Wahhabism, and to ensure that the military, the judiciary and the legislature get cleansed of elements opposed to the complete takeover of a philosophy at odds not only with the spirit of liberalism but with the equalitarian tenets of the Muslim faith itself. Unlike Barack Obama, David Cameron or Francois Hollande, the people of Egypt have refused to accept a return to an authoritarian past that they had assumed had been buried with the Mubarak regime, and are using "street power" to challenge Morsi.
