In America think of the defiance of those patriots in Boston who refuse to pay taxes to -- -- the dignity of Rosa Parks -- huge set courageously.
In her seat.
So it wasn't -- Hundreds of protesters took to the streets.
And in the face of batons and sometimes bullets.
They refuse to go all.
That was President Obama in May of last year -- in the Arab Spring to the American revolution and the civil rights movement.
The same speech the president use examples of democratic movements taking place in the Middle East -- in the cities she mentioned.
-- -- -- In Cairo we heard the voice of the young mother who said.
It's like I can finally breathed fresh air for the first time.
And -- up.
We heard the students who chanted the night must come to an end.
And -- -- we heard the engineer who said our words are free now it's a feeling -- you can't explain.
-- shouts of human dignity are being heard across the region.
Now because of a percentage of people in these cities and he mentioned have.
Attack embassies and consulates.
That reflection of Obama was -- similar reflection by most people in the United States because.
There -- getting rid of dictators and people that we that literally just as slaughtered people.
-- like Mubarak and Mike Qaddafi and yet today I I tell here's -- -- -- wanna go back to good old days of slaughtered dictators.
Is that what I mean -- -- what about Syria.
-- Syria that we're in they should be gone he -- he's -- slaughter of the dictator.
I don't but -- -- -- Arab fighting for freedom and they -- -- ballots that well I believe we are well maybe behind the scenes but not certain and certainly not very well -- all the -- -- the jury's still -- Mark living good friend the great one made commented and right around that time he said.
Wait to see what the Muslim brother brotherhood and and Mohamed morsi.
They're gonna make Mubarak look like Mother Teresa -- we don't know we don't know what that that the only way if he's gonna end up being you know slaughtering all -- at all.
We're free and open elections in in Egypt and they went in them around the Muslim Brotherhood want.
That's just too bad that's democracy we have to live with that that's that they have a right to -- they want what.
They wind but the original -- -- 25%.
And they wanted to run -- that they put me 75%.
Were against the other government that happens in places like and it looked.
What is your alternative to what dictated to back -- -- over.
But all of -- real democracy open -- that's real democracy.
It's not it's not about the leaders it's about a religion.
And that we -- talk about all the dictators we want but the fact is dictators were there -- part because they were trying to control.
A religion and now the religion is out -- about.
They got to change the name America -- springs sounds a like a delightful deodorant.
They got a cult like -- scary melt down few facets of something -- -- -- -- It is kind of nightmare on -- Austria aggregate content and it -- based Arab games.
Every winter VT Alexander -- -- you can't not ourselves on the back and say look this is so much better off.
It really isn't really wanna be on Nancy you wanna shines a light on and be transparent evidence -- Mubarak but they are better off than what is there now right.
I wanna get it running it down the essence of this we did -- did we not -- have democratic elections in the Middle East against what we did it and we didn't get a big role on Gaza we got Hamas.
Adam Egypt we got the Muslim Brotherhood that's the process of democracy.
They went to the polls they clearly voted that.
That's a good analogy -- we get Hamas has done.
The Palestine now and you have the Muslim Brotherhood running Egypt that boy what what it's what a bargain that's sort of -- with children I don't know why -- mean I don't let -- vote.
Now I'm not saying not eleven boards and make sure what you what this is what it is what you what the -- out.
Lot of things the United States could do is help these leaders become better leaders and to give them suggestions on what to say and how to act and how to lead their people tomorrow the Muslim Brotherhood has called for a protest.
But it's a protest over the stupid -- Or that exists or doesn't exist earlier not a protest over the over reaction of extremists who killed one of our ambassadors in Libya and then set fire to the flag in front eat in -- Egypt.
A leader would have said knock it off go home try to get yourself a job or start a business.
That's one of the things that our State Department can do maybe they are trying to get behind the scenes -- they certainly haven't told us very much of what they're doing after the Arabs but it's not working because they're.
In Vegas and apologizing.
And and handing out -- while people are cutting our hands up it's absolutely ridiculous this is not working at all.
We are not in a better positioning do you practice management disaster our relationship with Israel if badly damaged he doesn't have time for Netanyahu no I mean this whole -- -- whole lot's at the it's so skewed and so problematic.
We are not far worse position and I believe that we have camera and it is -- the hero through and I knew presidents don't.
You leave that aside right now -- that is this a letter sent to go to the pool and apple are tightly to the -- markedly different philosophies and platforms has Israel army policy and they and America's position in the world vs with chocolate -- -- at retreat and telegraphed exactly what we're gonna take out trips.
Compromising our position in Afghanistan in any gains that we donate that all of that -- -- -- that's actually the that's a kit -- and ridiculous Gallup poll and I got it.
I had just -- -- -- -- said that's exactly right dictated work put it they were in power.
In ran in Libya in Egypt to keep down the Muslims.
That's exact what they're doing when they were gone the -- -- frustration was finally blown out principles.
