The Muslim Brothers Get Paid to Threaten America

Pages: 1 2

Remember last year’s giddy bipartisan enthusiasm over the “Arab Spring”? President Obama claimed that Egyptians merely wanted “a government that is fair and just and responsive,” Senator John McCain asserted that Libyans were aiming for “lasting peace, dignity, and justice,” while Senator Joseph Lieberman wrote in Foreign Affairs that the Arab Spring was a struggle for “democracy, dignity, economic opportunity, and involvement in the modern world.” Every day that passes shows these assessments to be not just delusional, but dangerous to America’s interests and security.

The most recent repudiation of the “democracy delusion” is the arrogant threat made by a member of the Muslim Brothers, who control almost 50% of the new Egyptian parliament, to abrogate their treaty with Israel if the U.S. cuts off $1.5 billion in annual aid over the indictment of 16 American NGO workers, and the detention of 6 of them. In this the Brothers are in accord with the interim military government, whose prime minister Kamal el- Ganzouri told reporters last week that the Egyptians “won’t change course because of some aid.”

These are the same Muslim Brothers, remember, anointed as “moderates” and “largely secular” by Obama’s director of intelligence, foreign policy wonks, and New York Times columnists, an opinion based solely on propaganda and wishful thinking. Ignored are the many mosque sermons that vow to “kill all the Jews,” or that assert, as Muslim Brothers spiritual leader Dr. Ahmed al-Tayeb has, “In order to build Egypt, we must be one. Politics is insufficient. Faith in Allah is the basis for everything.” This advice is seconded by Brothers’ Supreme Guide Muhammad al-Badi’, who finds “a practical role model in Allah’s Messenger, [the Prophet Muhammad] . . . who clarified how to implement the values of the [Koran] and the Sunna at every time and in every place,” and who advises that the “improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life.” If you want more specifics about what sort of Egypt the Muslim Brothers will build, consult the speeches of the Brothers’ Grand Mufti Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who commands a global audience of millions. Qaradawi has approved of suicide bombing, wife-beating, death for homosexuals, support for Hezbollah, and the righteousness of the Holocaust.

Not much here, pace President Obama, that one can call “fair and just and responsive,” or that can justify the opinion of the New York Times that the Muslim Brothers “want to build a modern democracy that will respect individual freedoms, free markets and international commitments, including Egypt’s treaty with Israel.” And why would they? As their spectacular electoral success has shown––the Brothers and the Salafists won almost 75% of the recent voting–– the Brothers merely reflect the beliefs and goals of most Egyptians. In Pew surveys from the last few years, 84% of Egyptians support the death penalty for apostates, 82% support stoning adulterers, 85% said Islam’s influence on politics is positive, 95% said that it is good that Islam plays a large role in politics, 59% identified with Islamic fundamentalists, 54% favored gender segregation in the workplace, 82% favored stoning adulterers, 77% favored whippings and cutting off the hands of thieves and robbers, 84% favored death for those leaving Islam, and 60% said that laws should strictly follow the teachings of the Koran. Those views don’t sound like a people yearning for liberal democracy.

It’s not hard, then, to see why the Brothers would want to follow the Iranian playbook from 1979 and proclaim its Islamist bona fides by publicly humiliating the infidel global hegemon, the “Great Satan” whose dominance stands in the way of Muslims’ regaining their rightful global preeminence. As Muslim Brother founder Hassan al-Banna wrote, “It is the nature of Islam to dominate not to be dominated, to impose it laws on all nations, extend its power to the entire planet.” Confronting America also will help unify the nation around shari’a law, anti-Semitism, and anti-Americanism, not to mention marginalizing whatever moderate remnants are left in Egypt and rallying other factions around hatred of America. The Islamist revival has always made fidelity to the creed and Muslim chauvinism the centerpiece of jihadist violence and propaganda, the ties that can bind Muslims into a powerful community.

    Arabs are either at your feet (if you hit them hard enough) or at your throat (if you try to appease or be their equal). From their families (man dominates wife), to their Ummah (muslims dominate all others) – everything is built on one part dominating the other. It is basically the only language they understand.

    Break their will so hard they become pacifists.

    • Attilashrugged

      You are more right than you might understand!
      Genesis 25:21And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

      22And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD.

      23And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

      24And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

      25And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
      The next born was Jacob.
      IT is said that when one is strong in the world the other will be weak. This has been the case.
      Esau took Canaanite wives and then took one of Ishmael's daughters. Esau became the father of the Edomites. Edom was said to symbolize Rome. And Ishmael we know is said to have been the ancestor of Mohammed. Jacob had his name changed to Israel.
      SO even to this time there is a coming alignment of Islam and The Roman Catholic Church against The Jewish People, The State OIf Israel, and the descendents of the Lost Tribes (The English Speaking World).

    You cannot bargin with these people. This is basically history repeating itself. People laughed at Hitler's Mein Kampf and thought he didnt really mean it, that is until he was in power. Its the same thing with the Koran and Muslims. People in the West still think its all just words and most of them are 'moderate'. Thats the big joke. Wait until they are in control. I just hope our leaders wake up in time and see these people for what they are, cold blooded murders.

    Whenever a Western politician or intellectual uses the the term ' democracy ' in connection
    with Islamist or Third World regimes ,he is either criminally naive or certifiably stupid.
    Dear politically correct- stop your idiotic cringing before the clever rogues spit on you again !

    • davarino

      I dont think he is either naive or stupid. I think he knows exactly what he is doing, hes from there, hes one of them.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      I agree with you that democracy in the Islamic world is impossible because Islam is really another form of totalitarianism as opposed to being a religion.

      However, I'm curious…can you please explain the difference between what constitutes an Islamist as opposed to a mainstream orthodox Muslim?

  • davarino

    I actually think it is good for them all to unite. That way we have one enemy to declare war on. No more pussy footing with small bands of terrorists. We can now deal with a united group and that would be a war on ……. anybody, anybody, anybody?

    Hiring dictators to keep these mooks in line was a short term solution. Now we can nip it in the bud

      Ray LaHood must be very disillusioned. Interesting info: A native Egyptian arabic speaker told me " lahood" means "the jew" in arabic. Ray is listed as a Marronite Christian in Wikipedia. Ray is a Republican and presided over the Clinton impeachment debates. So I guess Hillary won't move too fast for him. Why did he let his son get into this mess? But other persons in Obama's administration should take notice of how easy it is to get thrown under the bus. j

      • Asher

        I hope that any Republican who considers working for an administration who support Islamic Regimes, and has enabled the Brotherhood, realizes that we are not dealing with people who support Freedom and Democracy…Hello…time to wake up and get an education on the Left's unity with Islam and Nazism! These regime changes will cause Israel great Hardship, of this you can be 100% certain!

    Davarino is right of course. Obama said it himself. “When the political winds shift in an ugly direction, I will be on the side of the Muslims.” He said it. I choose to take him at his word. I’m not calling him a Muslim or Socialist or Anti-American or Anti-Semite. He says he is a Christian. HA! Whatever. Listen, you can call him anything you want. BUT…he does EXACTLY what a Muslim, Socialist, Anti-American, Anti-Semite would do.
    An American would cut off aid IMMEDIATELY! An American would insist on the release of our citizens or consider it an act of war. An American would do what is in the best interest of AMERICA and not be concerned with how Islam may perceive us after we act in our own interest.

    Behold the power of culture and cradle-to-grave indoctrination within the theocracy of Islam. These same culture-war tactics are employed by the far-left as they concentrate on educating our children as means to winning the war. As with the shrieking gay-rights obsessors, they bore in like subterranean leeches until they suck out your identity and replace it with a convert from HELL.

  • Brujo Blanco

    I believe I US history something to the effect was said, “Milliona for war but nor one cent for tribute.”. We keep paying our enemies. We gave money to the Egyptians to helpnthem out and now they have expressed an intention of killing us. Are we going to pay them now? I am concerned for the hostages but if we pay will we get themback at all? We may pay and get nothing for it. There are too many countries that believe we are obligated to give them money.

    The United States is pays a heavy price every time they elect what I call an Ivy League educated (indoctrinated) "Mother's Boy" to the Presidency. With Carter, we got the Ayatolla and Iran terrorism, with Clinton we go Osama bin Laden and 15 major terrorist acts from Trade Center one to 9/11 (everything but executed on his watch) and with George W. Bush we got another two wars of containment, a nuclear North Korea and the Iranian nuclear program, and with Obama we got Islamic appeasement with the entire Middle East in chaos, the US economy ruined, and the Constitution shredded.

    • Roy

      With Reagan, we got the Afghan Muhajedeen, and bin Laden fighting the Soviets. Should have let the Soviets have Afghanistan.

  • curmudgeon

    it all makes sense if you keep in mind that obama is a muslim, and mccain and leiberman are useful idiots. what doesnt make sense is that americans who knew better elected the traitors to high office.

    I take it that once the treaty is abrogated that Israel can take the Sinai back.

  • Stephen_Brady

    Why not seize the Suez Canal, and hit them where it hurts? Invite Israel to re-occupy the Sinai Peninsula? "Encourage" a mass PAL emmigration from Gaza to Egypt? These steps would show the enitre Muslim world the power of the United States and its allies ..

    Woops! I forgot. Obama has held the White House for over three years. America is losing its power. My bad …

    • logdon

      We Brits, together with France and Israel, did that in the Fifties after Nasser stole/nationalised our asset and Eisenhower shafted us.

      • Stephen_Brady

        I know you did, and I strongly fault Eisenhower for his failures. The man who wanted to support the allies, during the war, at the expense of his own generals, seemed to have forgotten about his allies in 1956, didn't he?

        A lot slipped during the Eisenhower Administration …

    “In order to build Egypt, we must be one. Politics is insufficient. Faith in Allah is the basis for everything.”

    And the Left supports this?

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Remember last year’s giddy bipartisan enthusiasm over the “Arab Spring”? President Obama claimed that Egyptians merely wanted “a government that is fair and just and responsive,” Senator John McCain asserted that Libyans were aiming for “lasting peace, dignity, and justice,” while Senator Joseph Lieberman wrote in Foreign Affairs that the Arab Spring was a struggle for “democracy, dignity, economic opportunity, and involvement in the modern world.” Every day that passes shows these assessments to be not just delusional, but dangerous to America’s interests and security.

    As I have been saying, the lamestream media, the political elites on both sides of the political spectrum, and the federal government are all totally incompetent where Islam is concerned, and the reason is because they all get their information from the same exact source: the Middle East Studies Departments of our elite colleges and universities, that have been hijacked, co-opted, and usurped by Wahhabi Lobby petro-dollars in cooperation with the Left since in the 1970s. Indeed, until someone or something exposes this current sad state of affairs and brakes this monopoly on information, then the USA will continue moving from one strategic blunder to the next strategic blunder.

    Why should we be surprised, as all our elite colleges and universities have been hijacked, co-opted, and usurped by the Left for years. Indeed, the right is making a very big mistake in allowing this manifestation to go uncontested, as the Left is even imposing some of its insanity on the right. Indeed, that's exactly why the political elites on the right side of the political spectrum are so incompetent with respect to Islam today.

    Indeed, in the next 50 years, Western Europe will become Islamic Europe thanks to covert non-violent jihad via mass Muslim immigration for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest, and hijacking, co-opting, and usurping the Middle East Studies Departments of Europe's elite colleges and universities, which is another means of covert non-violent jihad, was one of the major factors that helped pave the way. Now, this exact very effective manifestation is also being duplicated over here in America to great effect as well. Indeed, if you can corrupt the minds of the political elites via infiltration, then you can destroy any country from within. It worked like a charm in Europe and it is working like a charm here in America today.

    Cut off their food. See if that changes their minds.

    • KarshiKhanabad

      We'll soon be seeing how your theory works in Egypt. The triumph of the Salafis & Muslim Brotherhood has unleashed savage hostility against anything non-muslim. Their tourism industry will soon be dead & buried. Egypt has no oil. The land the Greeks once called "the gift of the Nile" cannot feed its swarming hordes. There's going to be real famine in Egypt (watch Obama call for food aid to those who hate us).

    First they came for the communists,

    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,

    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews,

    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.

    Then they came for me

    and there was no one left to speak out for me. (Martin Niemöller)

    In our society today we have to remember those who are not spoken about getting persecuted for the Gospel, God will reward amazingly. Here is an article about those who are unnoticed.
