Muslim reporter: White House backed Arab Spring “total disaster”


The Stonegate Institute International Policy Council says that the Arab Spring revolutions backed by the White House have resulted in such democratically-elected oppression that the Muslims in those countries are wishing for a return of the dictators. Stonegate claims to enable human rights activists, moderate Muslims and expert investigative reporters in promoting free speech, exposing funding for terrorist cells, and pressing for transparency in international institutions. The conclusion of one such journalist with Stonegate is that Muslims are worse off a year after Arab Spring revolutions. This is clear evidence that US Middle East policy has acted counter to freedom, human rights, and the best interest of Americans.

In an article entitled “Arabs Are Beginning to Miss the Dictatorships,” Arab Muslim journalist Khaled Abu Toameh writes: “On the first anniversary of the “Arab Spring,” many Arabs are beginning to wonder whether they would soon start missing the corrupt dictators who ruled them for the past few decades.” Khaled says that the Arab Spring was supposed to promote women’s rights, encourage the abandonment of terrorism, moderation and pragmatism. He writes, “But judging from the outcome of the uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen, it is evident that the “Arab Spring” has failed to achieve any of these goals. As far as many Arabs are concerned, their “spring” has thus far proven to be a total disaster.”

Khaled writes: “The four Arab countries where the leaders have been toppled are now in the hands of Muslim fundamentalists, who used the “Arab Spring” as a vehicle to rise to power.” He quotes the patriarch of Lebanon’s Maronite Church, a Christian church that is loyal to Roman Catholicism, Beshara al-Rai, “How can it be an Arab Spring when people are being killed every day?” Indeed, Khaled confirms what the White House and State Department were told repeatedly–that the Muslim Brotherhood and/or al Qaeda have hijacked the so-called “democratic movement” and are imposing their brand of radical Islam and Sharia law on the people.

He concludes: “In these four Arab countries, women, Christians, journalists, human rights activists and political opponents are being targeted, and in some instances slaughtered, on a daily basis either by the new rulers or militiamen and Muslims fundamentalists.” Americans should be ashamed and appalled that their president embraced the Muslim Brotherhood and used the full force of US diplomacy, taxpayer money, and military to establish these terrorists. It was not a miscalculation because the Administration knew who they were dealing with and what their goals were. As Eliphaz the Temanite said in Job 4:8, “As I have seen, they that plow iniquity and sow wickedness, reap the same.” America is about to see it, too.
