The United States rewards a regime which oppresses and executes its 9 million Christian-Coptic minority and institutionalizes anti-Semitic and anti-US hate-education. The recent seismic developments on the Arab Street, especially in Egypt, have demonstrated how tenuous are Arab regimes, policies and alliances; how unpredictable, volatile, unstable, treacherous and violent are inter and intra Arab politics; and how uncontrollable they are by the USA. Two million demonstrators joined the anti-US Muslim Brotherhood Tahrir Square demonstration following the toppling of Mubarak
One million demonstrators participated in the anti-Mubarak Tahrir Square rallies. However, two million demonstrators joined the anti-US Muslim Brotherhood Tahrir Square demonstration following the toppling of Mubarak, highlighting the political trend in Egypt.
The transfer of advanced US military systems to Egypt - including the co-production in Egypt of the M1A1 Abrams tank - undermines vital US national security interests. It bolsters a regime which is at odds with the values and the long-term interests of the USA, a potentially anti-US regime, which is increasingly closer to Hamas and a safe haven for additional anti-US terrorists. It accelerates the regional arms race and fuels Egyptian imperialistic goals in the Sudan, the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. It rewards a regime which oppresses and executes its 9 million Christian-Coptic minority and institutionalizes anti-Semitic and anti-US hate-education. The transfer of advanced US military systems to Egypt is not required to combat domestic terrorism and to safeguard the borders with dramatically weaker Libya and Sudan. It is required to achieve a "strategic parity with Israel" - a code name for launching a war on Israel. Such a transfer defies Middle Eastern Egyptian realities.
For example, the most advanced US military systems, sold to the pro-US Shah of Iran, could not avert the February 1979 ascension to power of the anti-US Khomeini. Those systems made Iran a much more formidable threat to the US.
The 1951-1969 transformation of Libya's Wheelus Air Base, into the largest US air base outside the USA, did not foil Qaddafi's coup in 1969.
The transfer of US military hardware to Jordan did not prevent King Hussein from supporting Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait in 1990.
The pile of advanced US military systems sold to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf States was not employed during the 1991 and 2003 US-Iraq wars. A large scale US military deployment and US casualties were required to secure recipients of US military hardware.
The recent seismic developments on the Arab Street, especially in Egypt, have demonstrated how tenuous are Arab regimes, policies and alliances; how unpredictable, volatile, unstable, treacherous and violent are inter and intra Arab politics; and how uncontrollable they are by the USA.
The rising tide of fundamentalist Islam is apparent in Egypt, where the anti-Western Muslim Brotherhood - Hamas' Big Brother - is favored to make major gains in the coming election. Almost all Muslim Egyptian women undergo circumcision (genital mutilation)! According to a December 2010 Pew Global Attitudes, 95% of Egyptians support Islam's large role in politics, 82% favor the stoning of adulterers, 84% support the execution of apostates and 77% advocate the flogging or hand-amputation of thieves. Egypt produced Bin-Laden's chief lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahiri and the Blind Sheikh Rahman of the 1993 Twin Tower terrorism.
Anti-US Egyptian sentiments are the derivative of sustained incitement by educators, policy-makers and public opinion molders. For instance, the Mubarak-controlled media and clergy celebrated 9/11 and contended that it was a US conspiracy. Two weeks before 9/11, the Mubarak-controlled daily Akhbar Al-Yom, incited: "The Statute of Liberty must be destroyed." The editor-in-chief of the Al Jumhuriyah daily, who was appointed by Mubarak, wrote that "Iraqi swords would chop the neck of the US invader."
Egypt has collaborated with Russia, China and especially with North Korea (since 1981, with Saddam's financial support) in the development of ballistic, chemical, biological and nuclear capabilities. Mubarak violated US sanctions against Saddam and Qaddafi and voted consistently against the US in the UN.
Notwithstanding the 1979 peace treaty with Israel, Egypt has conducted a Cold War against Israel, promoting anti-Semitic hate-education, anti-Israel positions at the UN, the Arab League, NGOs, the anti-Semitic Durbin conferences and in Africa. Egypt has facilitated the flow of advanced missiles to Hamas-controlled Gaza, spending 18% of GNP on its military, while its economy crumbles
The $40BN in U.S. military aid to Egypt ($1.3BN in 2012) is framed as an investment in regional stability, supposedly advancing pro-US policies, allegedly constraining anti-US elements, promoting regional peace and democracy and ostensibly reducing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. However, reality demonstrates that US military aid to Egypt has been devastatingly counterproductive, with potential devastation yet to occur.
According to a June, 2012 study by the Washington-based Population Reference Bureau (PRB), 72% of 15-49 year old Palestinian married women prefer to avoid pregnancy, as are 78% in Morocco, 71% in Jordan, 69% in Egypt and Libya, 68% in Syria, 63% in Iraq and 61% in Yemen. The PRB study states that "a growing number of women are using contraception, as family planning services have expanded in the Arab region." The unprecedented fertility decline in the Muslim world was documented in June, 2012 by Dr. Nicholas Eberstadt, a leading demographer at the American Enterprise Institute, and Apoorva Shah of the Hoover Institute.
US global leadership. Thou shall embrace US global leadership, underscoring US freedom of unilateral action, rather than subordinating US policy to multilateral considerations. The US - not the UN or any international order - is the dominant quarterback of international relations. US global leadership is critical for its economic, homeland security and military concerns. It bolsters posture of deterrence, providing a tailwind for allies, thus constraining clear and present threats posed by rogue/terrorist Islamic regimes. On the other hand, US withdrawal is interpreted as weakness, emboldening adversaries, weakening allies, fueling clear and present dangers and facilitating the recurrence of 9/11
In 1830, New York University Prof. George Bush, the great-granduncle of G.H.W. Bush, considered one of the most profound American scholars of the mid-19th century, published "The Life of Mohammed". He was not concerned about political correctness, was low on delusion and top heavy on realism. His 1830 reference to the Islamic threat was consistent with the 2012 state of intra-Muslim atrocities, hate-education, tyranny, anti-US stormy Arab winter, intolerance of criticism, global Islamic terrorism in general and suicide bombing in particular.
The murder of nearly 3,000 persons on 9/11 was planned while President Clinton extended his hand to the Muslim World, in general, and to the Palestinians, in particular. The October 12, 2000 murder of seventeen USS Cole sailors occurred when Clinton brokered unprecedented Israeli concessions to the Palestinian. The August 27, 1998 murder of 257 persons at the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania took place while Clinton brutally pressured Prime Minister Netanyahu. The 1995/6 murder of 19 US soldiers in Riyadh and Khobar Towers was carried out while Clinton courted Arafat. The December 21, 1988 murder of 270 PanAm-103 passengers took place a few months following the groundbreaking recognition of the PLO by Reagan. The April/October 1983 murder of 300 Marines at the US Embassy and the Marines headquarters in Beirut occurred while Reagan interfered with Israel's hot pursuit of the PLO, blasting Israel for its war on PLO terrorism.
Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
About the KingsCalendar Publisher
R.P.BenDedek is the owner and Editor of KingsCalendar.com which was originally set up to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran'.
Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.
Free to air Academic articles set forth Apologetics for and results of his discovery of an "artificial chronological scheme" running through the Bible, Josephus, the Damascus Documents of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Seder Olam Rabbah.
