Since 9/11/01 Islam and more specifically a fear, and developing hatred toward Islam has been simmering on the backburner of the American psyche. We are told they want to hurt or kill us and our children. Then we are told they are a religion of peace. Then again, they want to make jihad against us, their great Satan.
Since that time we have been at war with countries that did not attack us, but probably might if given chance. We have ousted dictatorships and freed people who are not grateful for the new layer of corruption they live with but they won't attack us because they are now our friends. They just want us to leave their countries.
If all this sounds schizophrenic, it is because it is. The actual truth of it isn't lost on our government.
Throughout this set of articles I had hinted at a religion that overlays the faiths of most people. This article is just a rehash of a small chapter "Birth Pangs-The Armies of the North -- Osama bin Laden and other fun  ".
Because I have covered this religion so extensively in my book, and the proofs need to be exhaustive, I will offer hopefully enough of a slice to show how dangerous our world has become.
Ongoing as of today the protests in Egypt are sparking a great change. A people who have been oppressed are through a peaceful means shedding their lives of a president for life, by definition a dictator.
For my purposes there is no better place than Egypt.
A genuine people's revolution is occurring and a depressed world whose free peoples sympathize because they are starting to feel the same marginalization with the tearing of the fabric of their societies.
The Egyptian government has been separate from the Islamic religion for a long time. The Muslim Brotherhood which has been repressed for thirty years has stepped forward to lead in this struggle for freedom. They have been ostracized, jailed, and executed since the presidency of Nasser.
We know the US Government supports them. Who are they? Their name implies they are Muslims?
In an article titled "Terror, Islam and Democracy," Ladan and Roya Boroumand correctly state that "Most young Islamist cadres today are the direct intellectual and spiritual heirs of the Qutbist wing of the Muslim Brotherhood." And further, "When the authoritarian regime of President Gamel Abdel Nasser suppressed the Muslim Brothers in 1954 (it would eventually get around to hanging Qutb in 1966), many went into exile in Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria and Morocco. From there, they spread their revolutionary Islamist ideas - including the organizational and ideological tools borrowed from European totalitarianism."
The Independent's John Gray argues in an article entitled "How Marx turned Muslim" that Qutbism is not rooted in the Islamic tradition , but rather, is very much a Western based ideology.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a sect based in the writings of Islamic Philosophy, and Western Philosophy and not a fundamentalist view of the Koran. To reiterate they are not rooted in fundamental Islam itself.
Islam as the natural religion for the region presents itself as the outward façade. They view Islamic philosophy as the highest Islam, and the Koran is upheld outwardly.
Shaykh Rabee' ibn Hadi al-Madkhali, the renowned Salafi scholar who has written several books refuting the mistakes of Sayyid Qutb, concludes the following about Qutbism: "The Qutbists are the followers of Sayyid Qutb" everything you see of the tribulations, the shedding of blood and the problems in the Islamic world today arise from the methodology (of this man)."
The extremist views of the Qutbist spread with the persecution of Nasser. Historically if the leadership of terror organizations true religious affiliations are probed what do you think you will find?
