Barack Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood

Pages: 1 2

Now that Barack Obama has given a green light to Muslim Brotherhood participation in a new Egyptian government, it is unlikely that the organization will be kept out of power. And since the Brotherhood is the largest and most ideologically committed group in Egyptian politics, most likely it will end up in the driver’s seat in any new regime, and set the nation on course toward becoming an Islamic state.

Obama almost certainly knows all this, and yet approved of Brotherhood involvement anyway. A look at some of his appointments, associations and activities shows that this should come as no surprise.

Starting in the earliest days of his administration, Obama showed an intense desire to establish friendly ties with the Islamic world, while showing little or no interest in examining his chosen partners in dialogue and targets for attempts at rapprochement for ties to jihad terrorism or Islamic supremacism. His uncritical stance toward Islamic organizations included American groups with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, despite the Brotherhood’s stated goal of “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”

Obama’s first attempt at outreach to Muslims came when he chose the head of a Muslim Brotherhood-linked group that had been named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case to give a prayer during his inauguration ceremonies. Ingrid Mattson, who was then president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), offered this prayer at the National Cathedral on Obama’s Inauguration Day – despite the fact that the previous summer, federal prosecutors rejected a request from ISNA to remove its unindicted co-conspirator status.

There is no record of Obama ever asking Mattson to explain ISNA’s links to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. On the contrary: he sent his Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett to be the keynote speaker at ISNA’s national convention in 2009.

Even worse, in April 2009, Obama appointed Arif Alikhan, the deputy mayor of Los Angeles, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. Just two weeks before he received this appointment, Alikhan (who once called the jihad terror group Hizballah a “liberation movement”) participated in a fundraiser for the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). Like ISNA, MPAC has links to the Muslim Brotherhood. In a book entitled In Fraternity: A Message to Muslims in America, coauthor Hassan Hathout, a former MPAC president, is identified as “a close disciple of the late Hassan al-Banna of Egypt.” The MPAC-linked magazine The Minaret spoke of Hassan Hathout’s closeness to al-Banna in a 1997 article: “My father would tell me that Hassan Hathout was a companion of Hassan al-Banna….Hassan Hathout would speak of al-Banna with such love and adoration; he would speak of a relationship not guided by politics or law but by a basic sense of human decency.”

Al-Banna, of course, was the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Gee perhaps the reason the Egyptian gov shut down the internet & why it drew such harsh condemnantion from the Obama admin is that was the means used by Obama insiders to incite the uprising in Egypt.

    Just connecting the dots….

    WHY I STAND WITH MUBARAK

    The chaos and violence that's rocking the streets of Cario is rooted in the Napoleonic invasion of Egypt and the spread of Western values and ideas in that country for 200 years. It is the birth pangs of a new, free Democratic Egypt, a progressive development that could be hijacked in the short term by the regressive forces of radical Islam as has happened in Iran and elsewhere. That mustn't happen, and Egypt's current regime headed by the anti-Islamist Hosni Mubarak, dictator of thirty years, is determined to prevent it even if that means using violent and brutal force and alienating the Obama regime. And that is a good thing. We who want democratic change in the Middle East who supported the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan (the overthrow of Saddam and the Taliban) and the Green Revolution in Iran stand with Mubarak against Moslem and secular extremists.

      Always the West as the bad guy. I wonder, for example, how many realize that centuries before the first "crusade," Islamic Arabs were invading that "West."

    The forces of radicalism now headed by Mohamed El Baradei threatened the use of violence if Mubarak didn't resign and leave Egypt by Friday. A defiant Mubarak who is for an orderly constitutional transition to democracy via elections (with no interim government) refused to resign or leave. He made the concession of not seeking reelection and allowing elections in September to determine Egypt's future. But that wasn't good enough for the radical Mr. El Baradei and his reactionary Islamist allies (who are anti-democratic like their murdering brothers in Gaza) and want a full blown anti-Western Sharia state. THEY WANT POWER AND WANT IT NOW! And called for Mubarak's overthrow and death………

    Apollo speaks well. And Obama is fully aware of the facts as stated by Apollo which gives us proof that Obama WANTS Sharia law to rule in Egypt and eventually in America. It is time that Americans gather on the streets of Washington and demand that Obama leave NOW.

    • Jihad Eliminator

      Amen!

  • BLJ

    Obama has a muslim name. This should have been warning enough to keep this cretin out of the White House. There is no doubt in my mind that he stands with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    How much more stupid can the people of this nation get?

    • pagegl

      "How much more stupid…?"

      Check the various major television news organizations or almost any local newspaper.

    • BLJ

      LOL! I sound pretty stupid with that last sentence. Thanks for the pickup.

      The rest of my comments stand.

    Whaddya know? Everything us "Right-Wing paranoids" believed about this traitor IS TRUE.

  • P. A. Helvenston

    A congressional investigation will reveal the depths of Obama's support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and around the world. British newspapers are printing stories about an Egyptian violent radical supported by the US State Department traveling to the US for training in revolution and returning to Egypt to foment one. The Mubarak administration cites evidence of Obama's meetings and ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and accuses him of attempting to overthrow the government and get Muslim Brotherhood to serve in a new Egyptian government. Obama is a traitor to the US and should be impeached. Read more details of Obama's involvement in the Egyptian riots at http://www.worldnetdaily.com.

    I have many of spence books and love his work, i can't post anything on jihad watch but what the hell! obama is not part of the muslim brotherhood but may as weill be.

    the fact is many of our government people inside washington may as well be part of the brotherhood for one reason many have or want to be just like the murder ideals and the ideologically are totally intone with the little brotherhood of total evil.

    what you see today inside the swamp of the muslim world you will see next inside Europe and the europeans will get in-line with the muslim world or be murdered, the next large target is the USA And with 100,000 million third world people who will become muslim in large numbers in the next 2 years and within 10 years in will happen here and murder will become normal here inside the so called USA. So have fun the day of madness is here and you will know what evil is. Buy Guns.

    Hmm. Obama speaks out against the Honduran ousting of their dictatorial president, demanding that he be restored to power. Obama says nothing about the massive demonstrations and brutal suppression of anti Cleric forces in Iran. Obama demands that Israel stop creating settlements in East Jerusalem, but demands nothing of the Palestinians.

    Obama says the Muslim Brotherhood should be a part of the new Egyptian government that will take the place of Mubarak when he goes. What is he thinking??????? He knows that it could lead to the toppling of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Yemen, further radicalization of Turkey and Pakistan. Iran would have no reason to give up its pursuit of nuclear weapons. WHAT IS HE TRYING TO DO??? Is he trying to overload & antagonize the relations of nations one to the other? Does he want to drive up the costs of oil to create an economic crisis world-wide????? DO A CLOWARD & PIVEN ON THE WHOLE WORLD????????

    Is he thinking at all?
    Yes, and it’s not about our welfare.

    Seems like America is woke. Good.

    Since when is North Africa a part of the Middle East. Since the 7th century? Muslims want Israel, yet just stole Africa right in front of the world's face. Incredible! They want Spain back as Andulsia and the Vatican. The Mafia saved Rome once now the Pope tries to pretend Islam is Peace. Lying is Islamic and is the Pope now a Muslim?

  • btilly

    Islam has to be exposed as a racist cult. A religion that says that their allah created blacks to be slaves to Arabs and Turks and then hellfire. A religion that says black woimen are a sign of a bad disease, and black men are less than a donkeys penis-Ishaq 243, Hadith 9:162,3.

    Does Obama know that Harvard has sebgregated swim-Muslim only as if infidels are not pure enough to swim with but attend school with and pay for welfare benefits to 4 wives as small as 6 yrs old and sex at 9 as Muslims girls are considered adult and sex ready at 9. FGM is evil and Sharia Law is supporting it. Obama has Sharia supporters in the White House. WHY?

    When will my fellow Jewish brothers and sisters on the left going to realize that they are supporting their own destruction.

  • joel

    In GENESIS Jacob tricked Esau out of his blessing and birthright;so,when the brothers ran into each other years later, the former was frightened when he saw the latter's huge
    group of weapons' toting men. To mollify Esau Jacob offerd him a gift, but the former said, keep it my brother,I have enough. They parted in peace. When will the children of
    Esau say the same to the Jews and…well,everybody?

  • Barracuda

    Does President Obama have more "advisors" than the 66 books in the Bible? Like he just can't listen to the right sources. Who the heck is giving him sound advice or is just ignoring common sense positions? Even the Arabs are telling him to get lost.
    What was that comment about the phone ringing at 3 am? Like somebody got it right.
    I think he is over his head on this crisis. All we need is another "wise" comment from good old Joe Biden.
