Editorial: What Egyptians Really Want

Islamofascism: Romantics in Western media expect “democracy” to flower from the anti-Mubarak rioting in Cairo. But polling shows Egyptians actually seek strict Islamic rule.

According to a major survey conducted last year by the Pew Research Center, adults in Egypt don’t crave Western-style democracy, as pundits have blithely trumpeted throughout coverage of the unrest.

Far from it, the vast majority of them want a larger role for Islam in government. This includes making barbaric punishments, such as stoning adulterers and executing apostates, the law of their country. With the ouster of their secular, pro-American leader, they may get their wish.

Among highlights from the Pew poll:

• 49% of Egyptians say Islam plays only a “small role” in public affairs under President Hosni Mubarak, while 95% prefer the religion play a “large role in politics.”

• 84% favor the death penalty for people who leave the Muslim faith.

• 82% support stoning adulterers.

• 77% think thieves should have their hands cut off.

• 54% support a law segregating women from men in the workplace.

• Nearly half support the terrorist group Hamas.

• 30% have a favorable opinion of Hezbollah.

• 20% maintain positive views of al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden.

• 82% of Egyptians dislike the U.S. — the highest unfavorable rating among the 18 Muslim nations Pew surveyed.

This empirical evidence refutes the sympathetic narrative broadcast as a continuous loop in the media over the past fortnight. Even after getting beat up by anti-American mobs, CNN’s Anderson Cooper portrayed rioters as largely secular yuppies yearning for modernity and the triumph of human rights over martial law.

He and other media elite have it exactly backwards: Egyptians are revolting against Western-style democracy. The Pew poll reveals they do not, in fact, value our principles of individual freedoms, human rights and separation of religion and state.

Over the last two weeks I have stated on numerous occasions to friends and co-workers that Egypt will be the next Iran.  This study confirms my worst beliefs.

As American’s we must allow other countries to self-determine, even if the primary tenets of their ideology is in direct contradiction to our concepts of freedom.  The fundamental issue of concern swirls around the fact that there is NO such thing as a moderate Muslim, contrary to what the mainstream media or the pResident state.  A Muslim can not pick and choose which tenets of Islam they wish to follow without horrifying consequences- period.

The concept of Sharia is foreign to Americans.  But this shadow backdrop of Islam is what should concern every American and this backdrop involves complete jihad to bring countries not in compliance with Sharia to Islam.  How Sharia becomes infused is either voluntary or through the sword.  Democracy and Sharia can NOT co-exist, since the politicization of Islam is Sharia with it’s over intrusive control of even the most mundane aspects of the individual’s life.  Islam mandates that all individuals adhere to the principles it espouses which are interpreted  and enforced through Sharia.
