Egypt is again in chaos as literally millions of people have been protesting. Is it a coup or is it a revolution? What are the implications for Israel? How is Islam connected to all of this?
Joining Jim Schneider to answer these questions was Usama Dakdok. Usama was born in Egypt and grew up in a Christian home. While attending government school in Egypt, he learned about Islam like every other student in a Muslim country. He also studied Islamic law in college. He came to America in 1992 and found out that there are many Muslims in America. He began the Straight Way of Grace Ministry both to reach Muslims for Christ and to educate people about the real agenda and goals of Islam. He has translated the Qur'an word for word in English and is also author of the two-volume set, “Exposing the Truth About the Qur'an: The Revelation of Error". Usama is the speaker on the daily radio program, Revealing the Truth About Islam.
According to Usama, what people in the West need to understand is that you'll never have freedom in a Muslim country. Of 57 Muslim countries over the last 1,400 years there has never been one practicing freedom and democracy. Usama believes that the people of Egypt aren't ready for freedom and democracy and that if another election was held, the Muslim Brotherhood would simply win again because they are very organized. This is why the people of Egypt need help in order to know how to have freedom, run elections and have their voices heard.
In the end, Usama believes this is all part of a plan to unite Muslims and create a jihadist country that will surround Israel and attempt to remove it from the face of the earth. Sadly, in the meantime Christians are being kidnapped as they are blamed for this uprising that could erupt into civil war. According to Usama, civil war is dependent upon how much pressure the world puts upon the Muslim Brotherhood.
