Regular readers of our blog know about Abdel Moneim Abol Fotouh. He is a finalist in the race for president of Egypt. In 2004, he said he fully supported the armed resistance against the United States in Iraq “100%.” In the video below from 2004, he said that he would take up arms himself against the U.S.
Supporting the Iraqi resistance 100% necessarily means that Fotouh supported the actions of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi when the now dead terrorist beheaded Nick Berg.
The official position of the Obama administration during the Arab Spring was to champion the young voices screaming for Democracy. Once again and as predictable as the sun rising in the east, the forces that are filling the power vacuum are much worse.
