Obama Misleads Israel on Egypt

Pages: 1 2

In a June 14, 2012 speech posted on the Ikhwan Brotherhood Online website, Mohammad Badie, General Guide of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood said, “How happy would be the Muslims if all Muslim rulers made the Palestinian cause a pivotal issue, around which Muslims, rulers and the ruled, would line up.” According to Badie, they would ally to make “the sole goal for all of them the recovery of al Aqsa Mosque, freeing it from the filth of the Zionists, and imposing Muslim rule throughout beloved Palestine.”

Badie’s words are clearly the antithesis of assurances made by the Obama administration regarding the moderation and secularism of the new Muslim Brotherhood.  In February 2011, James Clapper, President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, told a U.S. congressional committee that the Muslim Brotherhood, the Middle East’s oldest terrorist organization, is “largely secular.”  Despite assurances by the Obama administration, it is clear that Badie’s words do not reflect moderation or secularism.  Clapper also told the committee that the “term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’…is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam. They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera…In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally.”

U.S. Senator John Kerry (D-MA), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, warned against “prejudging” the Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt’s first Islamist president, Mohamed Mursi. He went on to say, “During my recent visits to Cairo, I’ve had two candid discussions with the new president. He’s acknowledged that the central issue to Egypt’s future is economic. His words suggest he understands the gravity of the challenges facing Egypt.” Kerry revealed that in his discussions with Mursi, the latter committed to “protecting fundamental freedoms, including women’s rights, minority rights, the right to free expression and assembly, and he said he understood the importance of Egypt’s post-revolutionary relationships with America and Israel.”  Kerry, however, was quick to point out that actions — not words – are what matter.

The same Mursi who pledged to Kerry his commitment to protect “fundamental freedoms” and his “understanding” of the importance of Egypt’s relationship with the U.S. and Israel, declared only two months ago in a speech aired on Egypt’s Misr 25 TV (translated by MEMRI) that the Quran would be the new Egyptian constitution, and he led the crowds in chanting the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto: “The Quran is our constitution, Jihad is our path, and death for the sake of Allah is our lofty aspiration.”

President Obama is determined to prove that he alone understands Muslims and Islam and that he can cultivate the Muslim world into friendship with America and the West.  The Islamic Republic of Iran, which Obama sought to appease, rebuffed him, and in fact ridiculed him. Inviting Mursi to the White House, while ignoring his promises to Israel, indicates above all his sympathy for the Islamic revolutionaries in general and the Muslim Brotherhood in particular, neither of which serve the best interests of the U.S. or its ally, Israel.

    So we find out Obama is a liar and at least an islamist sympathizer. Not much new there. I wander what the American Jews think about being freshly lied to. He must think no one is paying attention. He is an arrogant man who comes from another country to destroy ours. He does not have america in his heart. His heart lies outside the US.

    I agree, this man is not my president and the people who voted for him should be put on trail for treason!!!!

    We are facing troubling times indeed. In John Daniels new book, "The Coming: A true Story of Horror" he proves that Islam is The "Beast" spoken of in Revelations and offers an interesting opinion on the part the Muslim Brotherhood plays. Amazon.com

    Did anybody seriously think that Stinky (-bo) was a "man" of his word??? Really? Anybody?

    As a child, Stinks dreamed of running a third-world country. He's well on his way.

    Mr. Puder has either a lot of nerve or a goldfish's memory to accuse America of going back on its word to Israel, a country that doesn't honor its peace treaties, spies on us, and vilifies us through plants in our own press. Furthermore, he is trying to dictate the foreign policy posture of the United States from Philadelphia but as an Israeli operative. If he loves Israel more than he loves the United States, he should go build a block hut there and see if the Likud Party makes him happier.

    How direct is your dope supply from Afghanistan?

  • Ghostwriter

    Once again,Schlomotion attacks anyone who cares about Jews or Israel in particular. Is it anyone wonder why he's been labeled an anti-semite? His words prove it every single time. Why doesn't Schlockmotion go to the West Bank and be around his beloved Palestinians? And I have a good idea why. Because they'd kill him without any hesitation because he's American and most Palestinians hate Americans.
