As this author and many others have been warning for months now,the glorious extremist “Arab Spring” has rapidly deteriorated into an Islamist summer with protests and riots re-emerging but barely covered by the U.S. media in nations from Morocco to Tunisia, Egypt to Iraq, and throughout the regions where “reform” was the promise but reality would, as expected, dictate otherwise.
The truth is being exposed now in a series of headlines over the last week where violent clashes returned to Cairo last night and Tunisia yesterday. While the size and scope are not as large as the initial protests, the Islamist movement is starting to impose its influence in the “change” of the various dictatorships from their previous system of governance into a new more radical Islamic based political creation. The Muslim Brotherhood has temporarily changed their name in Egypt to mask their past and ties to the Saudi Wahhabi sects and Islamic terrorist groups. In Tunisia the Islamist movement has withdrawn from the talks about a new constitution and structure for the government. In Morocco the protests over King Mohamed VI’s reforms started this past weekend and are expected to spread.
The MENA region is anything but stable but as long as it doesn’t impact the price of beer in America, no one will care.
Here is a series of stories my readers probably have not seen in the U.S. media:
(I’ve inserted the last story because it will destabilize the entire region further as the civil wars become cross-border conflicts)
