Gen. Sisi: ‘Religious Discourse Greatest Challenge Facing Egypt’

Print Friendly

According to Egyptian media, during his recent speech at the Dept. of Moral Affairs for the Armed Forces, Gen. Abdul Fateh al-Sisi—the man who ousted former President Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood in response to the June Revolution and who is seen as the nation’s de facto ruler—declared that “Religious discourse is the greatest battle and challenge facing the Egyptian people, and pointed to the need for a new vision and a modern, comprehensive understanding of the religion of Islam—rather than relying on a discourse that has not changed for 800 years.”

Sisi further “called on all who follow the true Islam to improve the image of this religion in front of the world, after  Islam has been for decades convicted of violence and destruction around the world, due to the crimes falsely committed in the name of Islam.”

    If only he were both sincere and correct.
    Unfortunately there would have to be much “weeding” of the Koran and its backup guides and the sacking (or highly unlikely “re-education”) of almost all current imams and madrassa teachers worldwide., not to mention the billion others. A brave man!!!
    I can see the death fatwas for him being scribbled out already

    Sisi further “called on all who follow the true Islam to improve the image of this religion in front of the world, after Islam has been for decades convicted of violence and destruction around the world, due to the crimes falsely committed in the name of Islam.”

    “..crimes falsely committed in the name of Islam.”

    This is another attempt to determine as the British Committee on extremism (Islam/Muslims) did that Islam extremism is a “distinct ideology”. That the Muslim “decades.. of violence and destruction around the world” are not derived directly nor indirectly from Islamic codex.

    The fatal flaw (with the emphasis on fatal) of such conclusion statements are that they not supported by any valid premises – there is no evidence presented by a credible source which determines Muslim extremists cannot be derived from the so called Muslim Liberal Moderate context which would prove such determinations as possibly true.

    There is no proof of the existence, not only a clear definable ethical divide between the so called Muslim Liberal Moderate and the Muslim Fundamentalist but that there are no Islamic cultural foundation codex (genetic, (con) textual, leadership (messianic) templates) determined as not being applicable to all Muslims.

    Such determinations of “..crimes falsely committed in the name of Islam.” means there has to exist a completely differing cultural foundation codex – where is it, what is it?

    Sisi stuck between a rock and a hard place, is courageous. I pray for his safety.

    YO ALL,

    Come on now, look at the CLOWN in the Vatican!

    One of his first actions was to criminalize WHISTLE-BLOWERS & another was to deal with the Italian government to protect Benny the Rat from being arrested on a warrant for covering up thousands of rape cases.

    If YOU take the time to study Church History & the Lives of the ANTICHRISTS, who claimed to be Vicars of Christ, you must agree that there is hope for Mohammedanism.

    The first thing I would do is NUKE Mecca & Medina!

    THIS IS VITAL!

    Mohammedans & Japs had the same demon driving them!

    When the bombs hit Japan, THEIR god went out the window!

    When Mecca & Medina are nuked, Allah will disappear!

    BUT DO WE HAVE THE “BALLS” TO DO IT?

    That’s the question!

      It is prophesied in the Bible that the Middle East is going to get nuked. The greater tragedy is of course our failure to act decisively against Islam and its demon infested representatives already.
