MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD BAN, A WELCOME DEVELOPMENT.
Icheoku says the ban of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group in Egypt is a welcomed step in the right direction. We hereby congratulate the Egyptian military for doing what is best for their country regardless of what any outsider may think or otherwise feel since no one can be more Egyptian than the Egyptian security forces themselves who have devoted their lives to protecting the structural integrity of their country.
Following the ban, Icheoku says the next step is to fire or sack any Egyptian who identifies him/herself with the now outlawed organisation from their jobs and lets see how they would continue to forcibly indoctrinate any Egyptian or cause any further upheaval with their brand of Islamic fundamentalism. Icheoku does not really care about democracy in some of these God forsaken countries where some elements of the society usually hijacks democracy and skewers it to suit their own ideological fundamentalism as witnessed recently in Egypt where then President Morsi looked the other way while foot soldiers of his Muslim Brotherhood literally ran every non Muslim Egyptian out of Egypt?
Democracy must mean what it preaches - government of the people, by the people and for the people and not just for a few ideological class or elites. It must bear broad spectrum application to all regardless of their understanding of who God is and whether they choose to stand or knock their heads on the grounds or at a wall in prayers. If those lunatics in Egypt, who parade themselves as Muslim Brotherhood, wants to enjoy their so called democracy, it must not be at the backs of other non Muslim Brotherhood Egyptians. This is where the rubber meets the road in Icheoku's vehement disagreement with them and our support for the coup that toppled President Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood's fundamentalist government. Now this blanket ban of the terrorist group throughout Egypt becomes the icing on the cake towards Egypt's recovery from the siege that was laid on them by this Islamist fundamentalists through the Morsi government. Once again, Icheoku congratulates the Egyptian military for standing up to be counted when it mattered most for millions of Egyptians. Bravo Egyptian armed forces; long live Egyptian moderates!
