Comments on: Sharansky: The link between Egypt and freedom http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2011/02/11/sharanksy-the-link-between-egypt-and-freedom/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: msore http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2011/02/11/sharanksy-the-link-between-egypt-and-freedom/#comment-34336 Sun, 13 Feb 2011 00:26:14 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=8836#comment-34336 The double-think Sharansky points to is real. No more real than in Israel.

The logic seen in Mubarak’s Egypt, and under other US-supported Arab despots, was that severe ORDER (military rule without human rights) is needed to avoid chaos. In Egypt it was NOT true, and getting rid of the NDP will not throw Egypt into chaos.

The logic is also not true elsewhere.

Mostly, it is NOT true in Israel.

Why is this clear logical parallel NOT discussed by the vast majority of commentators?

Double think.

For the Egyptians to accomplish what is meant by real freedom they must give up the Koran as their holy book with regard to the law. The Koran does not permit freedom to anyone, as everyone should well know by this time. The Koran and Shariah are back in the dark ages where religious superstition ruled nearly everywhere. People must be free of religious dictatorship before there can be any real freedom and peace and equality under the law for everyone. I think Egypt has only a “snowball’s chance in “H” of achieving this. If it does not accomplish this real freedom we will be left with one more Islamic dominated, non-free, enemy.
