Egyptian President El-Sisi Calls to Reform Islam!
January 14, 2015
Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, Egyptian Field Marshal and the Egyptian President
Savior of Egypt from Islamism and Hope of Egypt for Secularism
Folks, I came across some interesting news which you would not hear, see or read in the American Liberal Biased Media, because the Liberal Media is more like the Mouthpiece for the White House and acts as the State-run Media for the Obama’s Socialist Regime! Specifically CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, and the New York Times do all act as the State-run Media. Sometimes the RT (Russian TV) and CCTV (Chinese TV) are more fair and balanced than the American Liberal Biased Media! You see, media like CNN would not report this news because it contradicts Obama’s rhetoric about:
* Islam Religion of Peace
* Al Qaeda is tamed
* West is winning the war on Terror
* Terrorists are on the run
* They are Terrorists and not “Islamist Terrorists”
* Multiculturalism and Lingualism works
* It is not Muslim World’s fault
* It is all America’s fault
So as long as the American Liberal Biased Media does not report the good news (actually they do not report any news but they create the news!), then we must do it! So here it goes ……
While world leaders like Hussein Obama (Closet Muslim) are in denial and refer to Islam as “Religion of Peace” and refuse to name the terrorists as “Islamic Terrorists”. One man stands up to his own people and say it like it is!
During these hard times that the Islamic leaders and the Islamic world is silent about the worldwide Islamic terrorism and murders, one man stood up, only one man stood up and broke the silence!
Abdel Fattah El-Sisi is that man. What a great and powerful man. It takes a brave man to criticize Islam and Muslims in the Islamic countries, set aside to be a leader of an Islamic nation and to conduct this criticism!
While every single Muslim religious leader, statesman or official is sugar coating the Islam and pushing the blame to the West, El-Sisi said it like it is! A Bold and Risky Move indeed!
El-Sisi clearly stated that the problem is not the Outside World but the problem is the Islamic World!
El-Sisi directly pointed at the main Imam of Egypt and the Islamic Clerics and loudly stated that:
“We must revolutionize Islam”. El-Sisi stated that if we do not revolutionize our religion, then we have to face the world fighting the Muslims.
El-Sisi is the first Muslim leader to take responsibility for the Muslims’ shortcomings, backward religion, terrorism and ignorance! El-Sisi clearly (but indirectly) stated that Islam is the problem and the Muslims are responsible. He demanded to Reform Islam.
On December 28, 2014 in a speech delivered at Al-Azhar University, the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi called to combat extremist Islamic ideology and said: "We need to revolutionize our religion." Calling for "religious discourse that is in keeping with its times," El-Sisi warned that "the Islamic nation is being torn apart and destroyed" by extremism.
El-Sisi and Anwar Sadat
El-Sisi reminds me of Anwar Sadat and we all know what the Islamists did to Anwar Sadat! Every time an Islamic leader takes a stand against Islamism and wants to progress and secularize the nation, he gets killed!
Best wishes to President El-Sisi and hope he will be successful in secularizing Egypt and not get assassinated by Islamists along the way.
Field Marshal El-Sisi Saved Egypt from Islamism!
In June 30, 2014 Speech, El-Sisi stated that Egypt Protected Islam from Extremism!
El-Sisi as the chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces played the leading role in ousting President Mohammed Morsi (Muslim Brotherhood) after an uprising against him in the 2013. El-Sisi installed an interim government and remained as Minister of Defense in addition to becoming the First Deputy Prime Minister.
On March 2014, amid calls for El-Sisi to run for president, he resigned from the military announcing he would stand as a candidate in the 2014 presidential election. The poll, held between 26 and 28 of May 2014 without the participation of most political parties, resulted in a resounding victory for El-Sisi over his sole opponent. El-Sisi was sworn into office as the President of Egypt on June, 8 2014.
Field Marshal Abdel Fattah El-Sisi President of Egypt
A True Visionary, Secularist and Progressive Man
In other words you can call it a coup, election or selection but the reality is that Military and El-Sisi saved Egypt from becoming the Islamic Republic of Egypt!
Iranian Generals should learn from Egyptian Generals
I could only wish that if the Gutless Iranian Imperial Generals also had the balls to do the same in 1979, then Iran would have not become an Islamic Republic, but unfortunately Iran is doomed!
Maybe in the future, an El-Sisi will show up and rise to power from the inside!
President El-Sisi’s Speech
Following are excerpts from the Al-Azhar speech.
President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi:
“We spoke earlier about the importance of the religious discourse, and I would like to reiterate that we are not doing enough with regard to true religious discourse. The problem has never been with our faith. Perhaps the problem lies in ideology, and this ideology is sanctified among us. I am talking about religious discourse that is in keeping with its times.
I am addressing the religious scholars and clerics.
(El-Sisi pointed directly to the Grand Imam and Clerics sitting in the front.)
We must take a long, hard look at the current situation. I have talked about this several times in the past. We must take a long, hard look at the situation we are in. It is inconceivable that the ideology we sanctify should make our entire nation a source of concern, danger, killing, and destruction all over the world. It
is inconceivable that this ideology… I am referring not to "religion," but to "ideology" – the body of ideas and texts that we have sanctified in the course of centuries, to the point that challenging them has become very difficult.
It has reached the point that [this ideology] is hostile to the entire world. Is it conceivable that 1.6 billion [Muslims] would kill the world's population of seven billion, so that they could live [on their own]?
This is inconceivable. I say these things here, at Al-Azhar, before religious clerics and scholars. May Allah bear witness on Judgment Day to the truth of your intentions, regarding what I say to you today. You cannot see things clearly when you are locked [in this ideology]. You must emerge from it and
look from outside, in order to get closer to a truly enlightened ideology. You must oppose it with resolve. Let me say it again:
We need to revolutionize our religion.
Honorable Imam [the Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar], you bear responsibility before Allah. The world in its entirety awaits your words, because the Islamic nation is being torn apart, destroyed, and is heading to perdition. We ourselves are bringing it to perdition.”
The very last statement that President El-Sisi made was extremely significant. He lays responsibility directly at none other than one of the leading Muslim clerics of influence in the world, Professor Doctor Sheikh Ahmad Muhammad Al-Tayyeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University.
Even though the Grand Imam has denounced the Islamic State, obviously President El-Sisi believes that in order to truly save Islam, more must be done. The Sunni Muslim leadership must “revolutionize our religion” because it has become “hostile to the world” He stated.
E-Sisi boldly asks the Imam:
“Is it conceivable that 1.6 billion [Muslims] would kill the world's population of seven billion, so that they could live [on their own]?”
E-Sisi speaks in a nutshell not to insult Islam but deep inside he is a serious secularist, so he puts it as politely as he can to transfer the message to Imam and the clerics.

President El-Sisi of Egypt Represents Hope for the Islamic World.
I sincerely wish President E-Sisi the best in his mission and I hope that he will survive the wrath of Islamists which I have no doubt that they will plot to kill him the same as they did Anwar Sadat!
Only if we had more of El-Sisi type in the Islamic World!
Islam has no other choice, it must reform or it will become obsolete and turn to a fanatical terrorist ideology like it is today! It is up to the Muslims to evolve Islam and reform Islam.
Even though I believe that Islam is not reformable, yet we can always hope that somehow Muslims can modernize their ideology to adapt to the modern world and the information age. Maybe they can pretend to be modernized but any modernization is better than no modernization! Any sophistication is better than fanaticism.
I wish for El-Sisis of the Islamic world to succeed because the world cannot take anymore Bull Shiite from Islam and Muslims! The civilized world is frankly fed up with Islamist Terrorism.
More power to President El-Sisi and his comrades
