Mubarak to New PM: Roll Out The Rainbow!
In the latest move to retain power, Hosni Mubarak is urging his new Prime Minister to roll out the Rainbow Coalition to restore peace to the troubled nation. I am just kidding. Although it it would news worthy wouldn’t it? Mubarak reaches out to Israel’s Gay community to step in and restore calm. The White House has not stepped up to the plate, nor has anyone to save a so called democracy from being overthrown and replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Now that alone makes me wonder. Countries rushed to Afghanistan, to Iraq, and Serbia to usher in a new era of “democracy”. But here, a dictatorial democracy is threatened and their is muted silence. No saber rattling, no posturing, no..nothing. Maybe it is because of Egypt’s 30 year peace with Israel that keeps the world silent.
We all know that the powers that be want the Muslim world to overrun, annihilate Israel. Well, maybe not Canada’s current conservative government, but for the most part, the world has been plotting Israel’s demise since time immemorial. Sad. Sad that such a nation could foster such animosity.
Food for thought when considering Palenstine: Early use of “Palestinian” as an endonym to refer to the nationalist concept of a Palestinian people by the local Arabic-speaking population of Palestine began prior to the outbreak of World War I, and the first demand for an Arab state encompassing Palestine was issued by the Syrian-Palestinian Congress on 21 September 1921.After the creation of the State of Israel, the exodus of 1948, and more so after the exodus of 1967, the term came to signify not only a place of origin, but the sense of a shared past and future in the form of a Palestinian nation-state.
What did they claim over the past few millennia?
So Israel and Mubarak might make strange bedfellows. A peace is a peace until it is broken. If this peace is broken, Israel’s border is exposed and as a result, she will have to ramp up her military to cover the great expanse of desert. This in turn, will rile up her Islamic neighbors (as if they need an excuse to be riled) as aggressive posturing. There is no good outcome. Israel is lost.
Of course, this is only my opinion. Roll out the Rainbow Hosni! It is a better idea than doing nothing.
