Check out the Drudge Report. It appears that while our media is focused on Egypt, unrest is breaking out in other Moslem countries. Drudge has articles on three separate countries - Yemen, Albania, and Jordan - where protests are occurring right now.

The media and government fail to report that most of the ‘trouble spots’ on the PLANET involve radical Islamists.

Nobody seems to understand. Obamma’s SOTU speech was a Bin-Laden style trigger message to Islam. The pillars reference, the big things reference, the win the future reference, and the refusal to support our allies and punish our enemies gave the green light. Whe else do you think his first response was to “turn the internet back on”?

Winston Churchill made that observation and made it quite public in the very early 1900’s. Most people just can’t learn.

Islam is now officially trying to establish a Caliphate and take over the entire world.

Hitler should have called Nazism a religion, and been a lot more patient.

Its a panarabian movement that had its early genesis from Nassar around the time of the Suez cannal. The fact most of these people are muslims is coincidental. Although coincidental unfortunately, most of the rioting groups are under the control of firebrand islamo nut cases and the result of over throws in any of these countries is not good for the US in general and the civilized western world in particular IMO.

Muslim women were about to get the right to drive and a few other basic rights then Saddam Hussein's rise stopped any liberalization of Islam. Iran was taken over by brutal Muslims and the country is in revolt. College students want more. The young adults in Egypt were just getting Facebook, twitter and other Internet usage along with cell phones and I pad. Egypt wanted to crack down and the youngsters wanted more. Lets see who is ahead before we panic and give up on the whole middle east.

Islam is a political movement, like communism, whose goal is world control via sharia law. However, islam cloaks itself behind a false veil of religion to gain a foothold with minimal resistance.

As you stated, Hitler could have been more successful if he labeled Nazism as a religion.

Well, if the Panama Canal located in Egypt is shut down, I bet the Suez Canal located in the Republic of Panama will get some extra business.

Or is that the Erie Canal in the Republic of Panama?

I am so confused!!!

It seems to me that Arabs need to be more concerned and more afraid of the terrorists, jihadists, extremists and radicals in their midst than they should be about Israel.

What is happening in such places as Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Somali, Afghanistan and Pakistan should be a wake up call to all moderate, peace and freedom loving Arabs.

Iran may be behind much of what is going on in these countries because such instability only makes Iran stronger and more powerful an influence. Iran is using religious prejudice among other things to cause violence because it is a distraction from the world concentrating on ending Iran’s nuclear ambitions. It would not surprise me to learn that Iran is using the Muslim brotherhood or in cahoots with them to bring this about. The recent terror attack in Russia should be a wake up call to that country that helping, aiding and supporting a country like Iran will come back and bite them on the ass, backfire on them.

Its going to be interesting to see what happens when the financial markets open on Monday. By the way, CNBC Asia starts broadcasting at about 6:00PM tonight from Australia. My bet is that oil prices will go above $90.00 per barrel in the first hour of trading in Asia.

I think it’s ironic that this administration wanted to slowly squeeze us to death to force us in the direction of their choosing, and now things are beginning to spiral out of control around the world which I think will more likely cause a bigger push back here at home. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he decided to throw in the towel and walk away from the job because it’s just no fun anymore. Now it’s more like work. He just ain’t up to it.

Not going to happen. The Muzzies have an ally in Obama. They are not going to foment any anti-muslim behaviors. Our society is collapsing on itself. We are not going to be touched.

The Ground Zero mosque was a trial balloon.

From Yahoo News:

"In Canada, Egyptian-Canadians and others inspired by the protests half a world away made their voices heard at potentially the largest demonstration at Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET. "The rally started about an hour ago and the crowd is still growing," the CBC's Mellissa Fung reported. "We're estimating there are about 250 people here." Organizers expected more than 1,000 to turn out."

From Chicago Breaking News:

"Surrounded by several hundred fellow protesters along North Michigan Avenue Saturday, Ayman Hamed shouted slogans against Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak until he was hoarse.

As in Chicago, protesters took the streets in San Francisco, New York, Washington D.C. and other cities. Egyptian activist Web sites reflect plans for more U.S. protests on Sunday, including one scheduled in the southern Illinois city of Urbana."

And I have seen other sites reporting the same in Berlin and the UK.

kevlisababy, T. Boone Pickens was being intereviewed on FoxNews yesterday and seemed to indiacte that he thinks, this will push 0bama over the edge and that he may change his attitude towards offshore drilling, hydraulic fracking and greenhouse gas emissions. 0bama now realizes how vulnerable that his re-eelction bid is if oil prices go through the roof.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he decided to throw in the towel and walk away from the job because it’s just no fun anymore. Now it’s more like work. He just ain’t up to it.

I doubt it...he's dreamed of being a lame duck president and not having to answer to the voters for an entire presidential term. I don't think he wants to give that up...he'll do anything to keep that possibility alive. But if oil prices go nuts or if gas lines re-appear...he's done.

Our weakness is like a boil.....

.....Obama is the head.

.....The RATS and RINOS make up the puss.

The solution seems obvious to me. Lance, squeeze, medicate, and recover quickly. The body is healthy, we just have an infection we have been ignoring that got out of control.

Legal disclaimer...My use of the word -lance- does not imply or mean that I advocate somebody slice or stab anybody.

Well then I think he’s done, I don’t see how this won’t affect gas prices TODAY, but I haven’t been out yet.

Every time there is a surge in the price of oil, and the push increases to drill here, drill now, the other side starts with the “but it will be 10 years before it would have any impact on our supplies”. I get so sick of that, how many 10 year lumps of time have passed now. We would be beyond that if it weren’t for those idiots.

It sounds like the radical muslims are taking advantage of the Egyption people’s call for freedom — they want to take out all the pro-American leaders in muslim countries. Which, if they succeed, will make Bush’s turn of Iraq to a friend even more important, as they could be our only ally in a sea of radical terrorist-supporting evil.

Meanwhile, it appears Obama’s 2-year effort to placate the muslim radicals is finally paying off, in the way WE said it would, rather than in his ignorant “everybody hates us because of Bush” way.

Not surprisingly, NO media source has yet pointed out that two years of appeasement have earned us the contempt of the muslim radicals, rather than their capitulation. Obama is a failure again, but the media won’t connect the dots.
