Fox, Hannity, Spencer, Bolton and Ghouse

Egypt, Israel and American policies
I will be on two segments with Sean Hannity Show on Fox News tonight, One with Robert Spencer and the other with John Bolton, former US Ambassador to the United Nations - http://www.hannity.com/

Any foreign policy that is based on relationships between individuals is likely to collapse when they are gone. The peace treaty is between the people of the Israel and the people of Egypt and not between Begin and Sadat or Netanyahu and Mubarak.
Both Israel and the US in the past have made mistakes by siding with dictators, their intelligence was wrong and rarely reliable.  Even on Egypt, the right wing Israeli politicians were urging us to support Mubarak… what kind of intelligence do they have. How wrong we would have been had we listened to them.
Much of what they say about Brotherhood is unreliable. Egypt will change them, but then they will jump the topic to Iran or something else.  Fellow Americans like Brigit, Spencer and others are out to frighten the crap out of people – for money or whatever reason.
We need to find solutions and not create chaos.
It is a fulfillment of the aspiration of people for their sovereignty; it is the beginning of the freedom, liberty and justice for the people of Egypt.
This is the first time in history that Muslims have chosen non-violence as their path to bring about a change and those attitudes must be encouraged. Do we really mean we support democracy? If we do, the time is now.

The right wingers hype it beyond the need about Brotherhood, look at the crowds and the generation that is involved in the uprising, it is all youth accustomed to Twitter, Facebook and the likes… Brotherhood will have no room to dominate; they will be in fact subservient to the people. Indeed, we need to be cautious about them but not base our policies centered on them. The moderate majority should be our focus.
This is the first time; an American President has said and done the right thing; to be with the people. Most of the previous administrations were war mongers and were itching to go to losing wars.
We were playing in the hands of Saudi Monarchs and acting out for them to be belligerent towards Iran and antagonizing them. Do they know what diplomacy means?
Caution is always good.
The right wingers in Israel, Palestine or America have always been wrong, their intelligence has been wrong…why do you trust them? They rather see chaos than find solutions.

What is needed is an uprising in Israel, where the majorities of the people speak up and get their leaders to represent them in finding peace. Blaming others will not cut it, the bottom line is the right wingers have cheated the Israeli people out of peace with their attitudes.
Even if they are right, they need to be pragmatic and work on making lemonade out of lemon.
Push Brotherhood to the corner, they will dig in their heels just like the right wingers, there is no difference between the two – they are committed to annihilate each other, they can choose to do that. But for God’s sake leave the People of Israel, Egypt and America out of it.

  1. They beat you badly. Your poor ability to speak and your terrible voice does a disservice to the Muslims you want to protect. It would be better for no Muslim to be on the panel than for one to be there who has trouble speaking, and ends up being trounced by Hannity and Spencer. Doesn't your organization have anyone who can speak english well?
