Bishop Fulton Sheen tweeted, “As Religion fades, so will freedom.” His observation that religious conviction and the moral conduct it promotes is both integral and essential to free society echoes that of founder/framer John Adams who observed in 1798, “Our...
Iraq Unshackling her Linkage to Iran; Egypt’s al Sisi Rises
For the first time in 30 years, on Sunday, June 27th, 2021, the President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah al Sisi, met with the prime minister of Iraq Mustafa al Kadhemi, and the Jordanian King Abdullah II.
The fact that the leader of the most powerful Arab state visited Iraq is in reality, a historic event that requires serious attention because of its political, nationalistic, and economic implications.
Since 2003, after the fall of Saddam Hussein, Iran had turned Iraq into a client subservient Arab state for the benefit of the terrorist Ayatollah’s theocratic regime and a stepping stone to create a Shia military and religious crescent, from the Arabian Gulf to the Mediterranean.
That this meeting happened at this time, irrespective of the economic agreements has political implications that are extremely serious to the region and globally.
In his reception, the Iraqi leader said the following:
“Baghdad’s Peace (al Salam) and Arabism (al Urouba), receives today with all love and felicitation, their excellences, my brother King Abdullah the II and my brother, President Abd el Fattah al Sisi …)
The most important words in all of the speeches were A) Peace and B) Arabism. These two words were not used for flowery reasons, but inserted deliberately, to convey their intrinsic political meaning.
He was conveying the message to all countries in the Middle East (Arabs and Persia), that Iraq is first and foremost an Arab country; historically, geographically, linguistically, culturally, ethnically, and economically. This message is extraordinarily important from the current political alignments in the Middle East.
Although it has been a fact that Iran has had – and so far continues to have – an enormous and powerful presence in Iraq; politically, sectarian wise, economically and militarily, nonetheless, and I repeat nonetheless because it is relevant to this issue; nonetheless, the mood has changed among Iraqis and their leaders to liberate themselves from the Iranian stranglehold.
Already, those who support the presence of Iran in Iraq are accusing all three leaders of being Zionist stooges. These asinine accusations have been heaped upon any Arab or Muslim leader trying to make the lives of his people better against the prevailing powers that be.
These hatemongering accusers, conveniently and deliberately, ignore the reality, that both Egypt and Jordan have had peace agreements with the reviled ‘Zionist entity’ for decades.
Even al Sisi has been accused by the Muslim Brotherhood and others of actually being a Jew; the most insulting accusation in the Muslim psyche.
The prime minister of Iraq, Mustafa al Kadhemi, is being vilified by the pro-Iran factions, within and without Iraq, for betraying Iran when in fact, he is trying to alleviate the current economic disaster of his people.
Egypt signed several deals and memoranda of understanding, in sectors including construction, housing, roads, trade and to supply 12 million barrels of oil from Iraq’s southern port of Basra – through a proposed pipeline- to the Jordanian port of al Aqaba in the Red Sea and then to Egypt.
Abdel Fattah al Sisi is proving to be a decidedly deadly nemesis to both Turkey’s dictator and pretend to be Khalifa (Caliph) of Arabs and Muslims, as well as to the Shia Ayatollahs of Iran. He has more backbone and political acumen than all the members of the European Union and Biden’s administration, combined.
He is slowly but methodically bringing many Arab countries into his peaceful orbit, from Morocco and Sudan to Iraq and beyond.
Al Sisi is making Egypt, the pre-eminent political, economic, and military Sunni power, in the world.
It would be best for Biden and America, to keep a keen eye on him and not go against him.
