Revolution in Egypt and the Hidden Hand…(A Must Read!)

Egypt is in the grip of revolutionary violence. The longstanding regime of Hosni Mubarak may be overthrown. If this happens, the consequences will be far-reaching. Egypt has the largest population and the strongest military in the Arab world. If a revolutionary Jihadist regime takes power in Egypt, then Saudi Arabia and the Gulf emirates will probably not survive. In that event, the oil-rich Persian Gulf will fall into the hands of radicals who are likely to use oil as a weapon against Europe, Japan and America. Following the pattern of other revolutionary regimes, the radicals will realign their respective countries with Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela.
Some of the most famous terrorists of recent history have been Egyptians. The PLO’s longtime terrorist leader, Yasser Arafat, was an Egyptian; and so was 9/11 mastermind and ringleader Mohammed Atta, as well as bin Laden’s lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahiri. We also have testimony from former East Bloc intelligence officials that these Egyptian luminaries worked for Moscow, for the KGB and/or its sister agencies. It is no accident that radical Islam’s concern for the oppressed underclass resembles liberation theology, which Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) referred to as a “fundamental threat to the faith of the Church.” According to Ratzinger, liberation theology “goes beyond denominational borders: from its own starting point it frequently tries to create a new universality for which the classical church divisions are supposed to have become irrelevant.” The same could be said of radical Islam as it seeks to unify the various sects of Islam by focusing popular rage against the Great Satan (America) and the Little Satan (Israel).
The unrest in Egypt should also remind us of something from our own past. In the 1960s student radicals demonstrated in favor of the Vietcong. They were called “antiwar” protestors, but in truth they were supporting terrorism. The impulse of the Left, even now, is the same. As newspapers carried stories about the Irish Republican Army, the Red Brigades, Basque ETA, PKK, Vietcong, ANC, and other Communist-backed movements, student protestors were taking the theme of “liberation” into the streets. President Richard Nixon wanted to know if the antiwar movement was financed or directed from Moscow, and he tasked the CIA to investigate. But the CIA found nothing. Many scholars have taken this as proof that Moscow did not support the antiwar movement during the Vietnam War, though testimony has emerged that contradicts the prevailing view. According to a book titled Through the Eyes of the Enemy, written by Russian GRU defector Col. Stanislav Lunev, Soviet officials had long been funneling money to support “the most aggressive and violent minority leaders” in America. These were activists, according to Lunev, “who could either sway people to the Soviet point of view or cause general turmoil in the United States.” Lunev further wrote: “The GRU funded every major antiwar group. Any antiwar activists who claim otherwise are sadly naive.” [p. 170] By using a chain of untraceable intermediaries the Soviet Union pumped more than twice as much money into the antiwar movement in the United States than it put into the North Vietnamese military machine and economy. Today, with Russia’s involvement in organized crime and drug trafficking, mob violence may be readily whipped up, bought and paid for with laundered cash.
