The three flag bearers of Islamism are: The Muslim Brotherhood, Khomeni-ism and Wahabi/Salafism. These ideologies control nearly 80% of the mosques and Islamic organizations throughout the world, thus influencing the Muslim psyche.
This is the axis of evil plaguing the Muslim world. These ideologies have led to global terrorism by declaring jihad. Their common objectives are to:
The latest chapter in this saga are the headlines we are reading today. Currently the Muslim Brotherhood and the Khomeni-ists (Qatar, Turkey and Iran) have joined side against the Wahabi/Salafis (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and their allies).
Although Shias and Sunnis Muslims have been at each other’s throats since 1,400 years, the present standoff is not a sectarian conflict as being presented by political pundits and I’ll tell you why.
How were these lines drawn?
Qatar, a Sunni country which is not Shia friendly, started becoming the power base for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. They are known to have an office for the Taliban in their capital Doha. When Mohammed Morsi (a Muslim Brotherhood leader) was elected president of Egypt in 2012, Qatar felt empowered and flexed its muscle.
However when Morsi was deposed in 2013 and General Sisi took over, Saudi Arabia backed the Sisi with finances and logistics. This put Qatar in a difficult situation. Since then there has been pressure on Qatar to disassociate itself from the Muslim Brotherhood and stop supporting the Iranian regime, which it did not do.
Although the present Iranian regime did not trigger the current crisis, their unabashed support for Hezbollah (their lackey in Lebanon), Hamas and other declared terrorist groups coupled with their nuclear ambitions makes them very dangerous. They also support tyrants like Assad of Syria. Iranian proxies can be found all over the Western world laying the framework for the regime’s nefarious agenda.
Currently, the 10 demands placed by Saudi Arabia, et. al on Qatar have put the extremely wealthy country on notice. This is a phenomenal move, and although there is much criticism of Saudi Arabia’s own involvement in funding terrorism, change will come one nation at a time. A regime that models itself on the Muslim Brotherhood (Qatar) is far more dangerous than one which openly flaunts its support for a radical version of Islam (Saudi Arabia).
One by one we have to name them and shame them and Western countries have to legislatively identify state sponsors of terrorism, starting with banning the Muslim Brotherhood.
For the killings to stop and for the world to begin to live peacefully, we have to wait and see how soon the other two Islamist entities implode.
