Egypt - Hamas, Syria and Iran Are "The New Axis of Evil"

As the usual assortment of anti-Semites, pseudo-intellectuals, terrorist apologists, leftists and Democrats criticize Israel for attempting to eliminate an Iranian terrorist threat masquerading as a nationalist movement, many Arab nations see the conflict in Gaza between Israel and Hamas for what it truly is. An Iranian proxy war which ultimately threatens Arabs more than the Israelis.

Further evidence of this realization comes from a recent analytical report in the Egyptian government newspaper Al-Gumhouriyya. In a translation provided by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute), the Egyptian government comes out strongly against Iran and its proxies Hamas and Syria, and gives a more accurate background evaluation on recent developments in the Middle East than the drive-by media will ever allow us to see or hear in the United States.

From MEMRI's summary:

The editor of the Egyptian government daily Al-Gumhouriyya, Muhammad 'Ali Ibrahim, who is also an Egyptian MP, wrote a series for the paper titled "Hamas, Damascus, Iran - The New Axis of Evil." In the series, he criticized Hamas, Syria, and Iran for their position vis-à-vis Gaza and the opening of the Rafah crossing. Ibrahim stated that Iran and Syria had conspired to keep the Palestinian problem unresolved and to take advantage of it to promote their interests in the region, and argued that Hamas was a tyrannical religious movement which was, like the Nazis in mid-20th-century Europe, pushing its people towards catastrophe by preferring Syria's and Iran's interests to those of the Palestinians.

Also in his articles, Ibrahim came out against Qatar, accusing it of sympathizing with the Iran-Syria axis and of airing anti-Egyptian programs on the Qatari TV channel Al-Jazeera. A few days later, the editor of the Egyptian weekly Roz Al-Yousef, 'Abdallah Kamal, wrote in a similar vein. Both editors called Qatar hypocritical for criticizing Egyptian policy while at the same time attempting to forge ties with Israel and the U.S.

At least the Arab world is starting to get it. It's a war with Iran, stupid! And it's never been about solving the 'Palestinian problem' - it's always been about creating more and more turmoil in the region to benefit a few of the surrounding countries and their sponsors (formerly the Soviet Union, now Iran and Russia). The Palestinian people, and smaller counties like Lebanon, are merely pawns.

And we're going to allow Iran, and thereby its proxies, to get nuclear weapons...
