Many Christians have believed for a long time that Egypt would take a hard turn towards radical Islam in the last days. Well, it looks like that might be starting to happen. This week tens of thousands of radical Islamic protesters have been violently clashing with police and security forces in some of Egypt's biggest cities. So far, at least 4 people have died and dozens have been injured during the Egypt protests. The level of violence that we are witnessing during these protests is absolutely stunning. One of America's biggest allies in the Middle East is rapidly becoming destabilized.
There are reports that police have been forced to use water cannons and tear gas on the protesters. But this has just seemed to make the Islamic radicals even more determined.
So what are they protesting about?
Well, supposedly this is all about "economic conditions" and the rising cost of living, but the protesters are also demanding the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
Mubarak has been in power for three decades, and hardline Muslims in Egypt see him as way too friendly with Israel and the United States.
So while most mainstream media news reports will continue to characterize these as "economic protests", let there be no mistake - the vast majority of these protesters desire to see radical Islam take power in Egypt.
If that happens, it will be extremely bad news for the United States and Israel.
Organizers are promising that even bigger protests are planned. It does not look like things are going to cool down in Egypt any time soon.
So could this be the beginning of an Islamic revolution in Egypt?
Let's pray that it is not.
