Egypt is “free”. Let’s hope it stays that way.


Updated: Hosni Mubarak resigns: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hails ‘a new Middle East‘: Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday claimed the uprising in Egypt and removal of Hosni Mubarak heralded a new Middle East without the “satanic” influence of the West and that will doom Israel.

The people have spoken, Mubarak has stepped down, and the army is now in control.

We need to be vigilant and watch what happens next. The history of revolutions in the past two centuries has shown that there is a honeymoon period, followed by a period of disarray, followed by a governmental vacuum that could go either way…implosion into a state worse than the one before it, or explosion into a triumphant, free society.

Hugh Hewitt has some excellent commentary on this at the beginning of Hour 1 of his Friday, Feb. 4th radio show.

To further illustrate:

Remember what happened in Lebanon:

Let’s hope that the newfound freedom of the people of Egypt from Mubarak doesn’t devolve into a Muslim Brotherhood-sponsored protectorate of the Iranian Radical Islamist Republic under the Hitler of our time, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Or, for that matter, a new effort at a Jewish (and Christian) holocaust.

Personally, I hope that Egyptians will remain Egyptians, regardless of their faith, and that Christians, Muslims, and Jews alike will protect each other from an encroachment by radical Islamonazi fundamentalist regimes.
