If you want proof that U.S. policy towards the Arab Spring is fatally flawed, look no further than William Taylor, the State Department’s Special Coordinator for Middle East Transitions and long associate of Muslim Brotherhood apologists. Taylor officially took charge on September 16 and oversees U.S. aid to countries affected by the Arab Spring, specifically Egypt, Tunisia and Libya.

Taylor’s office has been giving Egyptian Islamists training to prepare for the election contests that begin on November 28. He justified it by saying that the assistance is open to all parties and the U.S. wouldn’t pick sides. “Sometimes, Islamist parties show up, sometimes they don’t,” he said nonchalantly.

When asked how the U.S. would feel if the Muslim Brotherhood won Egypt’s elections, he said, “I think we will be satisfied, if it is a free and fair election. What we need to do is judge people and parties and movements on what they do, not what they’re called.” The answer seemed to infer that critics of the Brotherhood are needlessly alarmed by the name of the group.

It gets worse. Taylor compared the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood to Tunisia’s Ennahda Party, as if that is a positive example to follow. “As long as parties, entities do not espouse or conduct violence, we’ll work with them.” He said there is undue fear of the Islamists. “This is something that we are used to, and should not be afraid of. We should deal with them.”

It is hard to imagine a statement more frightening and naïve coming from a senior official.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian affiliate is Hamas, which the Brotherhood still stands by and has never condemned. It says that Israel’s prisoner exchange deal that led to the release of Gilad Shalit proved that Hamas’ methods, which included kidnappings and targeting of civilians, were right. The senior Brotherhood theologian, Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, preaches the destruction of Israel, killing Jews and vocally supports terrorism, including suicide bombings. The leader of the Ennahda Party, Rachid Ghannouchi, likewise supports Hamas, terrorism and the killing of Israeli children. This certainly qualifies as espousing violence, to use the words of Taylor.

A look at Taylor’s background shows he is a long associate of individuals tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and apologists of the Islamist group. Before taking his State Department post, he was the vice president of the U.S. Institute for Peace (UIP). It has a close working relationship with John Esposito, arguably the most prominent non-Muslim apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood, foreign and domestic.

Esposito defends the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Sami al-Arian. He served as an expert witness for the defense in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, which was found guilty of being a front for Hamas set up by the Brotherhood. He also upholds Sheikh al-Qaradawi as a moderate who promotes a “reformist interpretation of Islam and its relationship to democracy, pluralism and human rights.”

Esposito is the vice chair of the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID), the board of which has strong associations with the International Institute for Islamic Thought, another Brotherhood front. On April 28, 2010, Taylor’s UIP sponsored a CSID conference that the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report calls “perhaps the largest public gathering of global Muslim Brotherhood leaders and U.S. government officials to date.” Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, the original founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, was there, as was Brotherhood members from Bahrain and Jordan. In May 2011, CSID held an event with a senior leader of Ennahda.

    What a bunch of perverted. This administration is the worst think could Happened to America and the world. Obama is a destructive narcissist with no conscience and no moral. A malefic professor, a complete ignorant insane indoctrinated to the bone with theories to descend to dark and misery goals.

      Great comment Anamah. Keep up the good work.

    What do you expect with a clandestine Muslim Marxist fraud in the oval office.

    we all know what is going to happen in egypt…it will turn into another crap hole just like every other islamic state in this world….sharia will be there in all its glory…this taylor clown should be charged – along with esposito…better still force them to live over there for a few years…see how they like the muslim brotherhood then…obama (pissbeuponhim) says "respect" it – I say annihilat it.

    You know the old saying "Don't shoot the messanger ……" well, guess who gave the message? You guessed it ! Mohammed Barak Obama! He will continue on his merry way attempting to destroy the United States by his wonderful rhetoric that hypnotises the world whilst he " ingnores" the Muslim Brotherhood and others of that ilk. Like Lord Nelson who placed the spy glass to his sightless eye and uttered "Im damned if i see it
    "" ignoring the orders of the naval high command and doing his own thing..Only Nelson was genuine and successful. Can we say the same for Mohhamed Obama? I doubt it! This President turns both blind eyes to the issues facing the country ignoring the electorate that put him into the White House. The sooner he is asked to leave, the better.
    Roll on the 2012 elections. G-d help us all if he gets a second term…..any cheap turbans and Berkhas available?

    • theworldisintrouble

      i have tgo say even though the elections will be upon us, if he doesnt win it, i am afraid that he will do something really bad to keep himself in office and declare marshall law to keep from kicking him out, if there is anyway possible, he will do it to completly destroy the usa

  • StephenD

    It won't be long. Egypt is going to be starving, literally, in a few months. How much of our tax dollars will go to feed them is anyone's guess. Instead of making demands for aid, we'll happily hand them all the time they need to get established. In the mean time we'll ignore the flow of arms across the Sinai into Gaza. We'll ignore the persecution of the Coptic Christians. We'll ignore the overtones of the call for genocide of Israel. We'll even ignore the Military running roughshod over all opposition groups except those it supports.
    What is happening in Tunisa, Egypt, Libya, and Syria is exactly what a Islamic Marxist, Anti-American would want to happen. Any names come to mind for you?

    I think the West has met its match in Islam. It gives me no pleasure to say it, but when I see authorities in the West so easily fooled what else can I think. If the West was as easily fooled by the Nazis we would be under their thumb today.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlvEptmF434 JackW

      The "authorities" which are Obama and his circle of traitors are not fooled.
      They are in league with the anti-Israel, anti-Christian, anti-American,
      anti-capitalist Islamists. If you look at everything Obama does from the
      bankrupting of America, to the crippling of our energy industry to the
      toppling of Mubarak and Gaddafi, you will see his agenda is in lock step
      with the Muslim Brotherhood. If you have any doubt listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlvEptmF434
      It is the Americans who support Obama who are fooled.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Actually, the US government was also hijacked by the enemy in the Bush administration, but the Obama administration is in effect the Bush administration on steroids. Thus, as bad as the Bush administration was incompetent, the Obama administration is more so, but not by much.

    Anyway, one of these days the infestation will have to be wiped out and I can't think of a better way to do it than by outlawing Islam and banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage. That way with no Muslims and therefore no possibly of jihad attacks, we could dismantle the massive Department of Homeland Security and the immense National Intelligence Directorate, and use the money to pay down the massive national debt instead. The US State Department and the Pentagon also needs a thorough house cleaning to clean out the riff-raff that is currently infesting them as well.

    • WilliamJamesWard

      Cleaned out top to bottom. I wonder though if the American people who are
      sitting watching the ball game, drinking beer, maybe at home or a favorite
      watering hole will ever wake up to the eminent threat and dire consequences
      of what Obama is doing. It may be one thing for his administration to be
      incompetent but it is so much more than that, he is literally and accomplice
      with terrorist organizations Muslim Brotherhood on down to the lowest jihadist
      with a knife for your throat. On all levels we are being undone and our debt
      is astronomical and so far out of reach to ever being payed it is only a moment
      in time if it is called we are done financially. The future is sold for America and
      we are experiencing the final chapter the dire consequences you have been
      writing about are very near and I am afraid that it is about time for last call.

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    i s l a m IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    i s l a m strives for world domination.

    The q u r a n commands m u s l i m s to exercise jihad.

    The q u e r n commands muslims to establish s h a r i a h law.

    The q u e r n commands m u s l i m s to impose i s l a m on the entire world.

    i s l a m is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    i s l a m IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    i s l a m wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    s h a r i a h law is a law that controls every detail of life in a i s l a m i c society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the q u r a n is the call to j i h a d.

    J i h a d means a lot of things and is a r a b i c for battle.

    i s l a m means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    i s l a m and freedom, i s l a m and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    m o h a m e d 's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes m o h a m e d a P E D O P H I L E!!!

    And you want to base a "R e l i g i o n" on this a z s -holes rantings?

    Are you INSANE?

    I STAND with Israel

    "Mogahed is also a defender of CAIR and ISNA.
    The State Department​ has teamed up with CAIR to host an event with the Syrian opposition. In January 2010, members of ISNA, the Muslim Public Affairs Council and Muslim American Society, all tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, were given briefings by the Department of Homeland Security​ including Secretary Janet Napolitano.

    What was the date Muslims conquered America as CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood now dictate and control America's domestic and foreign policy. The Islamic conquest and CONTROL of our country is warmly and eagerly welcomed by the U.S. government.

    Council on American-Islamic Relations: "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." – Omar Ahmad (CAIR co-founder).

    Addressing a youth session at the 1999 Islamic Association for Palestine's annual convention in Chicago, CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) founder Omar Ahmad praised suicide bombers who "kill themselves for Islam," http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ART

  • LindaRivera

    It should come as no surprise whatsoever that the Obama administration is training Egyptian Islamists – DEVOUT MUSLIMS who follow the Koran. Is the administration also training Al-Qaeda who murder our troops in Iraq?

    United together in JIHAD, US/NATO, Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah triumphed over Libya.

    Admiral James Stavridis, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, and the commander of the U.S. European Command told the U.S. Senate that Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah fighters are among the Libyan rebels currently receiving support from the US and its NATO allies. This was confirmed by one of the Libyan rebel officers, Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, who leads one of the Al-Qaeda units.
    (US Aid to Israel’s Enemies, Oct 13th, 2011, frontpagemag.com)

    U.S/NATO joined with Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah terrorists to wage relentless war for months. Bombing Libya back to the stone age.

    Barbaric Al Qaeda and Hezbollah who MURDER our troops in Iraq were considered desirable for placing in power in Libya. US/NATO have great guilt in making the world a far more dangerous place.

    US/NATO are determined to make the world safe for Muslim terrorists.

      I saw that when clinton and wesley clark (nato) attacked Yugoslavia. They attacked the Serbs who were fighting back against the provokings (as usual) of the albanians (muslims).

      They'd like to do the same to Israel – but are not able for obvious reasons.

      • LindaRivera

        Very sad. The Serbs were wonderful to America and the allies during the Second World War. The Serbs rescued hundreds of American military and allies. An entire village of Serbs were horribly put to death because they refused to divulge the hiding place of the Americans. And this is how American leaders paid them back. US/NATO took the side of the KLA Muslim terrorist organization and waged ruthless war against the Serb Christians.

    Global Jihad advances greatly, not because of cruel Islamics, but because of rabidly pro-Islam, Western enabler leaders. U.S. Airport Security is Deliberately and Shockingly Destroyed for Islam:

    <a href="http://www.worldnetdaily.com” target=”_blank”>www.worldnetdaily.com
    Controversial Muslim group
    gets VIP airport security tour
    Feds show CAIR latest screening steps,
    sensitive counterterrorism procedures
    August 18, 2006

    The Department of Homeland Security took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines.

    On June 21, a senior DHS official from Washington personally guided Muslim officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations on a behind-the-scenes tour of Customs screening operations at O'Hare International Airport in response to CAIR complaints that Muslim travelers were being unfairly delayed as they entered the U.S. from abroad.

    CAIR is a spin-off of the Islamic Association for Palestine, identified by two former FBI counterterrorism chiefs as a "front group" for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

    Several CAIR leaders have been convicted on terror-related charges.

    During the airport tour, CAIR was taken on a walk through the point-of-entry, Customs stations, secondary screening and interview rooms. In addition, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents were asked to describe for CAIR representatives various features of the high-risk passenger lookout system. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ART

      I believe – that says it all

  • LindaRivera

    U.S. leaders TOP favorites, the Muslim Brotherhood, stated goal is the DESTRUCTION of civilization.

    From the document of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America:

    The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" and all the word means. The
    Ikhwan [Arabic for brothers] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad to eliminate and destroy the Western civilization from within, and sabotage its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers, so that it is eliminated, and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.

    It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny…"

    • Beth

      Fret not, though Linda:

      Exd 15:14 '''''''The people shall hear''''''''',and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.

      Isa 14:3 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone – in his appointed times.

  • No Tax Max

    Another disgusting example of our muslim leader – Obama, the liar a..hole potus! Continuing down this path will only lead to more bloodshed – with Israel stuck in the middle. This is what we get for allowing a muslim / acorn leader to take control of our once great nation.
    Sad

    • Beth

      So Sad. Yes it is.

      No Tax Max said: "ontinuing down this path will only lead to more bloodshed"

      Mixing islam within non-muslim societies is a garentee of just that.Bloodshed.

  • Guest

    The world will be divided into ten territories and ruled through globalist tyranny. It's not difficult to see what's going on here. The US is helping the muslim world to unite into one of those territories for globalist purposes.
    "and about the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn that came up and before which three of them fell, the horn that had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things, and that seemed greater than its companions. As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them" (Dan. 7:20, 21).

    "As for the ten horns,out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise, and another shall arise after them; he shall be different from the former ones, and shall put down three kings" (Daniel 7:24).

    "Out of one of them came a little horn, which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land" (Daniel 8:9).

    "and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns" (Revelation 17:3b).

    "And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast" (Revelation 17:12).

    Please take the time to become familiar with end-time Biblical prophecy if you want to understand what we're seeing unfold before our very eyes. Once the economic collapse in the US occurs we'll see the emergence of the North American Union (NAU). That's already in the works. Why do you think the border between the US and Mexico remains porous no matter which party is in power?

    • Beth

      Throughout the ages, since the time of Christ, people wondered what it all meant, and now – it's happening right before our eyes and exactly when He said it would (when the many fall away and the mockers ['drive-by' media] appear).

      I believe you'll be interested in the following:

      The koran specifically calls the Son of God an abomination (009.030 – 037.151 – 037.152 – 019.088 – 019.089) ….thus, calls all of Christ's eye-witnesses (the apostles) liars – by one lone accuser who wasn't even there with them at the time, who offers no proof but his own say-so.

      1Jo 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

      I counted the names of the apostles who gave actual eye-witness accounts (there are at least 7 of them)

      1) Matthew – Mat 27:54

      2) Mark – Mar 1:1

      3) Luke – Luk 1:35

      4) John – Jhn 3:18

      5) Paul – Act 9:5 (and another good one – Rom 1:4)

      6) James – Jam 1:1

      7) Jude – Jud 1:1

      All tell the same testimonies – and they were not together when they wrote their letters. Along comes an evil being, who preaches beheadings, crucifixions, genocide without mercy, gang rape of the family members of murdered victims (think about that one) and calls the Son of God an abomination. Look at the masses that are litterally bowing to a 'gospel' that preaches such horror? Which makes me want to share these also:

      2Cr 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (look at that Scripture – What is the image of Christ? – answer: His Gospel)

      There is another image (gospel) that denies the Son:

      Rev 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

      Is that not the koran? (oh, yes it is)

      Taught in the koran:

      Mass Murder…………………………..009.005 – 033.061
      Mass Rape……………………………..033.052
      Beheadings……………………………..047.004
      Crucifixions……………………………..005.033
      Robbery…………………………………008.041
      Telling lies to non-muslims………….003.028
      Cutting off hands and feet…………..005.033
      Treason………………………………….008.067

      Keep all of this in mind – the next time they show some documentary about the anti-Christ and the next time obummer (includes his whole team) defends islam – along with the fact that the True Living God aleady told us what would come.

      Fret not, though…..for we were already told….even before muhammmad's henchmen wrote his koran:

      Isa 14:31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone – in his appointed times.

    "Obama should openly identify himself as a muslim terrorist promoting Sharia Law and genocide.

    In addition to promoting the Muslim Brotherhood slaughter of Coptic Christians in Egypt, Obama is denying the violent ideology of the Koran against non-muslims and apostates who convert out of Islam or who dare to speak freely on it.

    The Koran promoted destruction of Sanskrit and vedic universties in ancient India, and the rape pillage and murder and conquest of 80 million Hindus in the Indian subcontinent. This was actually removed from the textbooks in India so it wouldnt offend muslims.
