[Throwback] – Afraid to be King


To celebrate this wonderful day, I’d like to give you guys a flashback to one of my favorite songs.

Remember, “Afraid to be King”? That sample though!

Politics is so disturbing. I just watched a video of what is the alleged assassination of a politically active religious figure in Syria and it disturbed me. I am still uncomfortable. How could such things be perpetrated without justification? Murder and crime are being perpetrated by so many forces in the world and everybody responsible, every person or faction or force that is responsible is always painting pictures to justify it. Why is there injustice in the world, and how is it so well covered up?


Let me make something clear by stating that President Morsi’s hatred for Jews and Zionists is a sham.

If anything, its this sort of religious fanaticism that Israel plays on.

See America? See why we have control/secure the Middle East?

Mr. Morsi, Bassem Youssef is free to do as he pleases…as is Jon Stewart, who ironically, has taken the liberty of criticizing Israeli policy in the past.

Mr. Morsi is no Muslim. Mr. Morsi is an Islamist. His religion is Islamism, not Islam. His followers are either fearful, ignorant, uneducated, or simply fanatical. Nonetheless, they do nothing but pose a danger to Egypt’s stability. Moreover, they weaken the possibilities of a liberal democracy flourishing in Egypt.

As for Syria, according to an article on the U.K.’s The Telegraph [click here for link to article], the Syrian government has reported that its army has captured thirteen French Soldiers on Syrian soil.

Not surprisingly, and yet somehow surprisingly, the French government denied these claims, though not absolutely, according to the Telegraph article.

Opponents of Asad would say this is pro-Asad propaganda, initiated either by the West or whomever else they can blame. As for supporters of the regime, this find might only reinforce their predispositions: the so-called ‘Syrian Revolution’ is a foreign conspiracy.

French troops or not, the position of the Asad regime and its internal supporters as well as international sympathizers remains: a foreign conspiracy meant to destabilize the country and further the goals of colonialists in region is unraveling.

The truth is ominous, as always, but when all the murkiness fades, and all emotions are set aside, it becomes more and more apparent that perception is molded by one, ultimate factor:

Conviction.

So, in the midst of all the political mayhem ensuing, I am forced to ask:

What do you believe?
