Roger Simon: Egypt’s al-Sisi Makes Extraordinary Speech on Islam

2015/01/04

Via InstaPundit:

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi made an extraordinary speech on New Year’s Day to Cairo’s Al-Azhar and the Awqaf Ministry calling for a long overdue virtual ecclesiastical revolution in Islam.  This is something no Western leader has the had the courage to do, certainly not Barack Obama, despite his Muslim education.

Accusing the umma (world Islamic population) of encouraging the hostility of the entire world, al-Sisi’s speech is so dramatic and essentially revolutionary it brings to mind Khrushchev’s famous speech exposing Stalin. Many have called for a reformation of Islam, but for the leader of the largest Arab nation to do so has world-changing implications.

Really, Simon – Khrushchev?  Khrushchev never shook Communism’s foundations.  No: Somewhere in the ether Martin Luther is smiling; and Thomas Jefferson.  Egypt hasn’t seen anything quite like this since Akhen-Aten.

The Left’s minions worked for the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak; Now they’re getting what they wanted good n’ hard.

    Up to now, everybody’s been afraid of the crazies killing them, but this is the sort of thing that can get people moving.

    Choomie’s little regime change in Egypt may yet bear some fruit.
