U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Springs into Action

The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and its non-Muslim allies have sprung into action. They are demanding that President Obama make Israel end its offensive against Hamas which, in characteristic Islamist fashion, they are falsely depicting as a genocidal crusade. Obama blames Hamas, but the pressure from Islamists, the anti-Israel left and other countries like Britain and France, may be taking a toll. He signaled possible opposition to an Israeli ground operation, saying it’d be “preferable” to end the Hamas rocket threat without sending in troops.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood entity whose executive director was fundraising for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in May, has published a falsehood-laden press release signed by six other groups: The Islamic Circle of North America, the Muslim American Society, American Muslims for Palestine, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, the American Muslim Alliance and the Muslim Legal Fund of America.

The first two groups are known Muslim Brotherhood fronts. American Muslims for Palestine is an Islamist group and its own statement condemns Israel without even mentioning Hamas’s rocket attacks, much less condemning the terrorist group itself. Its conferences feature Brotherhood activists and Hamas apologists. The leadership of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee has a history of defending Hamas and Hezbollah. Its statement condemns Israel for “indiscriminate slaughter” and does not mention the terrorism of Hamas.

The Advocacy Director of CAIR-NY, Cyrus McGoldrick, explicitly endorsed Hamas’s terrorism in a tweet on November 15. He wrote, “Palestine is a land occupied by foreign settlers. They have the right to resist, to defend themselves, ‘by any means necessary.’” CAIR-NY board member Lamis Deek tweeted that Gaza is a “beacon of resistance” that “inspires revolution” and “’Israel’ won’t last.” On November 12, Deek wrote that jihadists headed to Syria should instead head to Israel: “On mayadeen: the question: there are jihadiyeen from everywhere entering #syria, why do they not enter #palestine? (My answer: follow the$)”

The joint statement claims that “American taxpayer-funded weapons are used to kill civilians—including babies—and to destroy the civilian infrastructure in Gaza.” The group’s statement says it regrets harm done to civilians on either side, but does not condemn Hamas as a terrorist organization. Instead, they make it sound like Hamas is defending the lives of innocent Palestinians. The groups claim that the conflict was sparked by the Israeli military’s murdering of a 13-year-old boy playing football and a 23-year-old man who may have been mentally challenged that walked near the border fence.

The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), founded by Brotherhood ideologues, said Israel’s campaign is “about assassination of Palestinian leaders, destruction of Gazan infrastructure and the gross killings of Palestinian civilians, including women and children.” It urged the U.S. to force Israel to recognize a ceasefire that doesn’t involve sanctions and blockades that “punish the people of Gaza.” MPAC said that attacks on Israel will not end because “the greatest act of violence in the West Bank and Gaza is the ongoing Israeli occupation.” Though MPAC says it “opposes the move towards more active warfare by both sides,” it does not explicitly condemn Hamas and depicts it as a victimized and legitimate authority.

RadicalIslam.org sets the record straight. An Israeli soldier was injured in a bomb attack on October 23. Then on November 6, three soldiers were injured by a bomb near the border, followed by rocket fire. On November 8, another soldier was injured by shelling, and an anti-tank missile was fired at a military jeep on November 9, injuring four more soldiers. At least 128 rockets were fired at Israel in the week prior to the beginning of Operation Cloud Defense. President Obama agrees that Hamas started the conflict by firing rockets. Since the operation began on November 14, a missile has landed in Israel once every six minutes on average.

The truth is that Israel implements a wide variety of tactics to protect civilians, even aborting missions when necessary. The video of the killing of the Hamas military chief shows how Israel used a missile just powerful enough to destroy his vehicle and launched it after he moved away from nearby cars. Another video shows how Israel destroyed a missile site without significantly damaging the mosque next to it. On November 18, the Israeli military even coordinated the arrival of 124 trucks into Gaza to deliver aid, including medical supplies and dairy products.

This is a sharp contrast to what Hamas does. It deliberately targets civilians and teaches hatred to children. Its Interior Minister has bragged about using the elderly and children as human shields. The Israeli Defense Forces have put out several videos documenting Hamas’s series of lies since the operation began. Hamas claims its rocks have struck Israeli warships, military bases, the parliament building, the stock exchange and have downed fighter jets and forced the closing of Ben Gurion International Airport. It uses manipulated photos actually taken in Syria and makes up reports of Israeli war crimes.

picture of a killed Palestinian boy with his forehead being kissed by Egypt’s Prime Minister went viral as proof of the brutality of Israel’s “aggression.” The evidence indicates the boy was actually killed by a Hamas rocket. About 100 rockets fired by Hamas have accidentally landed in the Gaza Strip so far.

Nevertheless, Israel opponents like Cenk Urgur of the Young Turks blast Israel as a greater human rights abuser than Hamas. “When Palestinians kill civilians, they’re terrorists. When Israel kills civilians, it’s just collateral damage,” Urgur said in a YouTube video. He talks about the deaths of Palestinian civilians and sarcastically says, “collateral damage—gee golly, I wonder how these end up happening,” inferring that Israel is carelessly killing civilians.

The Islamic Society of North America, another Brotherhood creation, is taking a lighter tone. It accuses Israel of breaking the ceasefire first but calls on both sides to end their attacks. It also admits there have been “minor violations of the ceasefire on both sides.” One of the objectives of this softer tone is to win over other religious groups. In the same press release, ISNA boasts that it is working with the World Jewish Congress and National Interreligious Leadership Initiative for Peace in the Middle East towards a two-state solution.

The energy the Islamists are investing into these interfaith partnerships can be seen at the website of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. The coalition’s condemnation of Israel’s offensive similarly does not condemn Hamas, nor does it event mention its rocket attacks. It boasts that Presbyterian and United Methodist churches have voted to boycott products made in Israeli settlements. It is also trying to turn Black Friday into the “Boycott SodaStream Day of Action.”

A look at the 152-member organizations of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is shocking. There are many Christian and Jewish groups working with this coalition that won’t condemn Hamas but will condemn Israel. Hatem Bazian, chairman of Americans for Palestine, was a speaker at the 11th Annual National Organizers Conference of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. Bazian has a history of disturbing statements and his organization’s events are stocked with Islamist speakers, many of whom defend Hamas and are linked to the Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood affiliates in the U.S. have only just begun. They are rounding up their interfaith allies and non-Muslim partners with a shared opposition to Israel. If President Obama is getting weak-kneed already, then it’s only a matter of time before he tells Israel to suspend operations and go back to a shaky ceasefire that allows Hamas to prepare for the next round.

    Soon, the Zionists will re-enact their Plan. A new surprising event of great magnitude (like the destruction of Al Aqsa mosque) will expand everywhere the conflict between Jews, Muslims and Christians.

    The next World War of Religion is already a done deal behind the backs of all people which will be forced to fight for their own Countries in their obligation as citizens. This is to bring chaos and anarchy everywhere and to build in the end one New World Order.
    Now there is a need for one alternative Front to oppose the very detailed Zionist Plan.

    The platform must focus on the resolution of that Human dilemma which is at the root of the conflict and that is the antagonism between Individualism and Equality. These two concepts have new meanings in light of a scientific discovery that now binds one new Progressive Science to Religion.

    This discovery goes far beyond the progress for science and reveals the Creation.
    As Wavevolution shows us how the origin of all energy, including the human being, was first waves and then mass, it also opens our eyes to our Equality.

    Beyond the appearance of other possible solutions only this could prevent the next World War of Religion which will be the excuse for a New World Order.

    The strongest opposition for Equality will come from that concept of Israel which is built around Individualism and one “chosen people”.

    The Dictator of a New World Order will soon become one reality unless there will be a new movement coordinated in each Country and operated with strategic timing.

    It will take one single Front (and not many fragmented) to oppose the Zionist Plan.

        And does anyone with brain cells not understand the following – the infiltration/penetration of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia into the US body politic goes hand in hand with destroying Israel & the US.

        And to make matters more ominous, the BIGGEST operative in the US is none other than Huma Abedin, Hill's Deputy COS. Yes, she is – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/07/spotlight-on-

        Mary Sue,

        "*yawn*" you are a vacuous, and tedious dullard.

        - There are no Arab intellectuals of international stature because they all live in a constant state of generalized mediocrity, just as you & your annoying hit & run insipid posts.

        You and Arabs are both suspended in the pit without touching the bottom.

        "*yawn*"

          haha what? Your post makes no sense at all. I don't see a point A or a line to point B, just some nonsense that sounds like you saw someone else's post and mistook it for mine.

      Imagine how horrible it is to worship a made up moon god invented by the pedophilic warlord and false prophet mohamat the dog faced pig. Did you know that mohamat actually shat the contents of the koran? You can tell by the smell.
      allahu snackbar!!

      • spider

        No schizo Mo was not clinically a Pedophile since they are defined as individuals that are only sexually attracted to children. You see schizo Mo also had an affinity of raping adult females and of course some of these rapes were postmortem. So technically he was a necrophiliac rapist and child rapist.also he heard voices from the Angel Gabriel telling him this was what he should do.
        Do you really think the Angel Gabriel is going to tell someone to rape little girls and dead bodies?
        Therefor Mo was also a schizophrenic…by clinical definition

    • Spider

      I hope Israel does destroy the Al Aqsa mosque and replace it with a "temple of King David" that was there long before Is-lam was even invented by a schizophrenic mass murderer who plundered and raped his way across the Arabian peninsula.

      Don't you mean Agenda 21 created by the UN & muslims ?

      It's not Jews or zionists that are invading every country ,trying to establish parallel legal systems ,infiltrate governments and terrorize citizens – it is muslims .

      Not a single Jew has declared they are taking over a country ,state or society but muslims do it on a daily basis.

      Israel ,much like America wants to be left alone to live in peace and work on their own problems. Idiots like Obama,Pelosi,Reid and the MSM joined Europe in their socialist world ideology and hate mongering to create a violent multicultural one world society dominated by muslims .

      Gamal Nasser tried what you are advocating, and look where it got him.

      And stop spamming. Nobody is interested in your whacko site.

    • Ahmed Johnson

      Yes. I see. And before this great concuminitty can begin, we must first resolve the discrepancy between those living and breathing…and those that are not breathing. Yes. the Arab-Israeli conflict is a result of the great discrepancy between the living and the dead.

      Now when the One World Dictator thrust his beard forward, then Islam will prevail. Islam is the only means of resolving the great discrepancy between the living and the dead. Allah be praised!

      Once people begin following the Great Beard of Islam, then the Zionist plan can be opposed! But it will take one single united world front to stop the Zionist plans: stealing the palestinian land and building more and more Kosher supermarkets. Zionist and their supermarket conspiracy? It's just WRONG!

    It is time to RELEASE the Holy Land Foundation files to the PUBLIC. Anyone that voted for 0 and/or helped him steal this election will live to gravely regret what they have done! He is in League with Satanic Evil and all will pay. All religions of the world are being wiped out and being tortured and murdered. The powerful Elite and world bankers do not care, they think they will escape. Woe to them; fools and their money.

    …. U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Springs into Action ….

    Not since Nazism patterned itself on and allied itself with islamanazism has that manifestation of evil had such strong links with those close to a Western "government," as it has with America's "Democrats."

  • pierce

    The Muslims are getting our first Muslim President to do their dirty laundry, and try as he might, he cannot.
    He is buddy buddy with his brethren, and yet he can not help them. I wonder why not.

    I hope that one of those Ham-ass rockkets lands directly the Dome of the Rock and destroys it so Israel can rebuild their Temple. Pieces of the Iran missle at the site should convice the world that Iran is responsible

    how much longer will it be before the blacks in this country convert to the racist muslim religion and start a war here in the states, if there is anyone that thinks that someday blacks wont turn full scale on whites then you are stupid and ignorant, and blacks will enlist the help of all the hispanics to join in the genocide of the hateful whitey

  • Moishe Pupick

    Tu., 11/20/12 common era ///// Israel should invade Gaza with ground troops to finish the job once and for all. The Amalekites of our era are attacking the Homeland of the Jewish people. There is no moral equivalance of disproportionality. Agreeing to a ceasefire now would only give Hamas (a.k.a. Amalek) time to regroup. The hell with what Obama and the U.N. want! They didn't create the heavens and the earth.

    Israel must choke off the endless supply of weapons and missiles into Gaza

    I fear Israel will find that the Gaza Strip becomes an appendage of a new Islamic Republic of Egypt.

    Condoleezza Rice, – is a REPLACEMENT THEOLOGIST, that worked behind the scenes to undercut Israel in the Bush/Reagan administrations.

    Condoleezza Rice is an ENEMY of the Biblical Israel. –

    ~ when she was Secretary of State,
    ~she urged Israel to vacate the vital security strip separating Egyptian Sinai from the Gaza Strip as a
    "peaceful gesture to the Palestinian Arabs."

    Rice is Another State Department Land for Peace disaster in which the Arabs always receive land but in which the Israelis never receive peace.

      Land for peace will never work where Islam is concerned since the sole purpose of Islam in all of its incarnations is to make Islam supreme throughout all the world and all the lands.

  • EthanP

    As Obama and his Leftist allies hate Israel it won't take much prodding.
    However, much as I hate to say anything positive about them, many powerful Democrat Senators are pro Israel. (Laughtenburg, Menendez, Boxer, Feinstein etc) It will be very difficult for them to allow Israel to be thrown under the bus.
