This is the interview I’ve been waiting on because no one knows more about the Middle East that Walid Shoebat.
To begin, Walid Shoebat agrees with Bolton that no matter what happens in Egypt right now, this crisis isn’t going away and there will be civil unrest going forward. And part of that unrest, he says, is being fueled by the military who has given confidence and energy to the opposition against Morsi, in the form of the ultimatum, and this will help propel both sides into a larger conflict. He also notes that because of Libya both sides are very well armed as tons of weapons have been sold into Egypt.
But even more importantly he says it is one thing to push for the fall of a secular government or a dictator. It’s another to push for the fall of an Islamist government. Shoebat points out that historically Islamist governments don’t fall unless an outside force comes in to aid the opposition and he doesn’t see that happening here. And with Morsi defiant and unwilling to give up power, this conflict is heading right for a civil war.
It’s also important to note that the Bible predicts in Isaiah that Egypt will end up in a civil war:
“And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, [and] kingdom against kingdom.” (Isaiah 19:2)
