Lex Petros: Egypt: God be with you?

Egypt: God be with you?

Arab nations would lose somehow lose their solidarity and would eventually see their imminent fall. The most populous country in the Middle East and the Islamic world is being driven to its knees in political upheaval and the call for democracy. The ousting of its strongman in Tunisia earlier this year has only been catalytic to current events. Millions are demanding the stepping down of the 30-year prime minister.

Tensions will escalate to the brink of destruction whilst politicians rally and pander up to the people with reforms and promise of expeditious decisions.

Egypt now brace for the "march of millions". I am following these torrid events closely via the media and Internet.

The police are rendered ineffective, the streets have become the grounds for nearly 5000 escaped criminals, food and water are being rationed and citizens are taking arms and setting up check points to defend their family and property. It's anarchy plain and simple. Our foreign office has dispatched a contingent to "assess the security" of about 25,000 students in Egypt. Pardon me, but I do believe the outcome of their "assessment" would be a forgone conclusion.

Egypt historically was evangelized by St. Mark during the 1st century A.D. Egypt was also the land where Moses liberated God's people from, if you do recall, from prosecution by the Pharaohs. Nearly 6 centuries down the line and after the birth of Islam, Egypt was annexed to the Byzantine realm where Christians were persecuted by Muslim Arabs during the 7th century A.D.

After a brief tussle with the Persians , the Ottoman Empire pushed the land of the Pharaohs into decline. Annexation through invasion and religious prosecution was the
modus operandi in the Middle East it seems.

Al-Jazeera reports that Egypt could bring about "a seismic shift in regional politics - and some worry that this might upend the uneasy peace between Israel and Egypt". In the 1960s, Israel managed to enlarged it's borders after taking the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza strip, the West Bank and the Golan Heights. Later, the Palestinians, Egyptians and Syrians launched a wave of attacks on Israel until the peace treaties. Don't forget about the 1978 peace treaty which Israel had to pay a heavy price for- giving up oil and and land for peace. It must be remembered that before that, it was the Egypt-led Arab nationalists who first called for the destruction of Israel having refused to recognize it.

Rulers are God-inspired and God-led and not to become interpreters or what law is in the eyes of God.

One learned friend of mine has opined that God is punishing the Arab nations for their ways. He simply puts it "they think they can make God proud with their fundamentalism and extremists ways and persecution of who they refer to as 'infidels" and look what's happening to the Arab nations. The harder they try, the more they will fail because it is not the will of God they so interpret".

Conveying their political beliefs, some more extreme the others through religious indoctrination and fundamentalism. Human law is secular and should remain secular. No one is above the law: yes. But no one is fit to decide what God wants or not.

Personally, I revel in the developments as they arise.

Egypt may very well give reason for a new war for Israel and this time, the spear of truth will pierce through the veil of deception which has cloaked that part of the world far too long!

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative
and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit
the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking
intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this
in my hunt for something concerning this.

Here is my blog ...

Thanks a lot!
