"The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It will attain world domination by the dissolution of other races...and by the establishment of a world republic in which everywhere the Jews will exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this New World Order the Children of Israel...will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition..." (Karl Marx in a letter to Baruch Levy, quoted in Review de Paris, June 1, 1928, p. 574)

Egypt needs real Islamic revolution


by Dr. Kevin Barrett

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has fallen in a coup d’état. Morsi’s demise marks the end of the Muslim Brotherhood’s failed strategy of accommodation with the West.

Nobody denies that the majority of Egyptians wants Islamic governance. Nobody denies that President Morsi won Egypt’s first-ever free and fair elections.

But Egypt’s Western-backed secularist comprador elite was not ready for real democracy. They were not willing to accept the results of free and fair elections. So with the help of their Western paymasters, they hamstrung Egypt’s economy, pointed the finger of blame at Morsi, duped impressionable young people into flooding the streets, and engineered a coup d’état.

The anti-Morsi coup has strangled Egypt’s democracy in its cradle.

It may also have ended the Muslim Brotherhood’s misguided, hopeless attempt to Islamize Egyptian society while remaining in the Western orbit.

Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood made a terrible mistake by forging an alliance with the West and its regional puppets. The Brotherhood has become a tool of the Zionist-dominated West, which seeks to divide and conquer the Middle East by fomenting a sectarian civil war between Sunni and Shia Muslims. Shaykh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, once a respected Brotherhood intellectual, has disgraced himself by becoming a spokesman for Zionist-instigated, Saudi-assisted anti-Shia sectarianism.

Perhaps President Morsi thought that if he accepted the West’s dictates to join their war on Syria, keep the Gaza border closed, maintain the Camp David “surrender treaty,” enslave future generations of Egyptians to the International Monetary Fund, and let the Egyptian Army continue to rule as it did under Mubarak, he would be allowed to add a bit more shariah to the Egyptian civil code.

It was a devil’s bargain to begin with. And the devil did not even keep the bargain.

President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood need to go back and study the works of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the father of the political Islamic awakening that is shaking the globe.

Ayatollah Khomeini insisted that there is no room for sectarianism in the Islamic awakening. Muslims are Muslims first and foremost, whether they follow the Hanafi, Malaki, Hanbali, Shafiyi, or Ja’fari law schools.

The Muslim Brotherhood should stop inciting sectarianism, and stand up for Islamic unity.

Secondly, Ayatollah Khomeini understood that all Muslims have a moral obligation to side with the world’s oppressed - the mustazafin - in the struggle against their oppressors. The resistance against empire, apartheid, Zionism, aggressive war, and all forms of racism and injustice is also the struggle of all Muslims.

The Muslim Brotherhood should stop kowtowing to oppressive rulers, be they Western, Saudi, or Qatari, and join the worldwide struggle against exploitation and injustice.

Third, Ayatollah Khomeini saw that a real Islamic revolution would require the overthrow of the old order and a complete break with the West. All of the powerful figures who propped up the Western puppet dictator, the Shah - especially the military leaders - would have to be either removed from power or successfully re-educated. And imperialist institutions such as the IMF would have to be expelled from Iran.

The Muslim Brotherhood should recognize that it must work for a complete Islamic revolution, including removing all of the West’s puppets from power and breaking the bonds imposed by Western banks and governments, if it is to establish the Islamic society that the majority of Egyptians want. Simply winning an election, while the real power in Egypt remains with the Western-puppet military, accomplishes nothing.

The Muslim Brotherhood should view its setback in Egypt as an opportunity to reflect on its mistakes.

Its biggest mistake was its refusal to join the axis of resistance - the Hamas-Hezbollah-Syria-Iran alliance that is standing up to Zionist and imperialist power, with notable success.

The Brotherhood let its tragic history in Syria blind it to the historic opportunity offered by the rising axis of resistance.

Now is the time to take off the blinders.

A year ago, who would have thought that the two most prominent Muslim Brotherhood-linked heads of state, President Morsi of Egypt and Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani of Qatar, would fall from power almost simultaneously - while the Assad government in Syria not only remains in power, but continues to gain strength?

The Western mainstream media kept telling us that President Assad was about to fall.

According to them, he has been about to fall for more than two years.

Apparently if you want an accurate view of the Middle East, you should be reading the alternative media - including Press TV, which has been consistently skeptical about the West’s claims that regime change in Syria is always just around the corner.

The axis of resistance is winning in Syria. And it is winning, slowly but surely, in Palestine, as the world awakens to the truth about Israeli apartheid.

The axis of capitulation to Zionism and empire is losing.

The future is with the world’s rising economies, not the collapsing West.

Will the coup d’état against President Morsi help awaken the Muslim Brotherhood? Will the Brotherhood decide to take a new path - the path to Islamic unity and real Islamic revolution forged 34 years ago by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini?
