Why Is Obama in Bed with the Muslim Brotherhood?

Pages: 1 2

This article is reprinted with permission from The American Thinker.

Dr. Essam Abdallah, an Egyptian liberal intellectual, in an article published last October in the leading liberal pan-Arab journal Elaph, refers to certain reports coming out of Washington:

These reports reveal the depth of the below-the-surface coordination between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Hamas, Hezbollah, the Iranian regime and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya and Jordan. This bloc of regimes and organizations is now becoming the greatest Islamist radical lobby ever to penetrate and infiltrate the White House, Congress, the State Department and the main decision making centers of the US government. All of this is happening at a time when the US government is going through its most strategically dangerous period in modern times because of its need to confront the Iranian Mullahs regime, which is expanding in the Middle East, as well as penetrating the United States, via powerful and influential allies.

Abdallah alleged that “the popular revolts in the Arab world — and the Obama Administration’s position towards them — were determined by political battles between various pressure groups in Washington.”

He followed up with another article this month in which he asks:

[W]hy isn’t the West in general and the United States Administration in particular clearly and forcefully supporting our civil societies and particularly the secular democrats of the region? Why were the bureaucracies in Washington and in Brussels partnering with Islamists in the region and not with their natural allies the democracy promoting political forces?

Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism said of this article: “This is one of the most important articles I have read in years.”  He then made allegations of his own:

It was just revealed two days ago that FBI Director Mueller secretly met on February 8 at FBI headquarters with a coalition of groups including various Islamist and militant Arabic groups who in the past have defended Hamas and Hizballah and have also issued blatantly anti-Semitic statements. At this meeting, the FBI revealed that it had removed more than 1000 presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices around the country that was deemed “offensive.” The FBI did not reveal what criteria was used to determine why material was considered “offensive” but knowledgeable law enforcement sources have told the IPT that it was these radical groups who made that determination. Moreover, numerous FBI agents have confirmed that from now on, FBI headquarters has banned all FBI offices from inviting any counter-terrorist specialists who are considered “anti-Islam” by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.

This comes as no surprise to me.  In August of 2011, after making the case, I wrote, “To my mind, the alliance between the Obama administration and the Muslim Brotherhood is the cornerstone of Obama’s New Middle East policy.”

The most damning bit of evidence was reported by Herb London in his article, “U.S. Betrays Syria’s Opposition“:

In an effort to understand and placate Syrian opposition groups, Secretary Clinton invited them to a meeting in Washington. Most of those invited, however, have links to the Muslim Brotherhood. Missing from the invitations are Kurdish leaders, Sunni liberals, Assyrians and Christian spokesmen. According to various reports the State Department made a deal with Turkey and Muslim Brotherhood representatives either to share power with Assad to stabilize the government, or replace him if this effort fails. One organization, the Syrian Democracy Council (SDC), an opposition group composed of diverse ethnic and religious organizations, including Alawis, Aramaic Christians, Druze and Assyrians was conspicuously — and no coincidentally — omitted from the invitation list.

Caroline Glick wrote in August of last year:

What these observers fail to recognize is that Erdogan’s interests in a post-Assad Syria have little in common with US interests. Erdogan will seek to ensure the continued disenfranchisement of Syria’s Kurdish minority. And he will work towards the Islamification of Syria through the Muslim Brotherhood.

This week Secretary of State Hillary Clinton held a private meeting with these brave democrats. Why didn’t she hold a public meeting? Why hasn’t Obama welcomed them to the White House?”

Today there is a coalition of Syrian opposition figures that include all ethnic groups in Syria. Their representatives have been banging the doors of the corridors of power in Washington and beyond. Yet the same Western leaders who were so eager to recognize the Libyan opposition despite the presence of al Qaeda terrorists in the opposition tent have refused to publicly embrace Syrian regime opponents that seek a democratic, federal Syria that will live at peace with Israel and embrace liberal policies.

By refusing to embrace liberal, multi-ethnic regime opponents, the administration is all but ensuring the success of the Turkish bid to install the Muslim Brotherhood in power if Assad is overthrown.

The Syrian Democratic Coalition (SDC), above mentioned, is self-described thus:

The Syrian Democratic Coalition (SDC) is an emerging coalition of diverse Syrian organizations coming together to help bring an end to the Assad regime and promote the transformation of Syria into a secular democracy based in liberty. The coalition is founded upon a belief in the separation of religion from state and is dedicated to establishing a new constitution and transparent federal republic in Syria, based in reason that equally protects minority rights, promotes gender equality, and embraces the rights and liberties of every individual as enumerated in the United Nations Declaration for Human Rights. This growing coalition crosses all ethnic, religious and tribal lines to represent all Syrians. It currently includes members of Save Syria Now!, the Kurdistan National Assembly of Syria, the Union of Syrian Arab Tribes and the Syrian Christian Democratic Movement.

Sherkoh Abbas is secretary general of the Syria Democracy Council and president of the Kurdistan National Assembly of Syria.  I first met him when he invited me to be a director of the American Kurdish Friendship League some five years ago.

Recently, he confided in me that in all his dealings with the State Department over the last two years, no interest was shown in his coalition, and instead, he was continually pressed to support the Syrian National Council (SNC), made up of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists and Arabists.  He believes that the U.S. is working with Salafi groups, and the Turkish government, to create an opposition in Syria that is strictly Islamist.  Such an opposition would serve Turkish economic interests in Syria and keep the Kurdish issue dormant in Turkey as well as in Syria.

For the last six months at least, Obama has been cultivating a relationship with PM Erdoğan of Turkey.  The budding relationship prompted Barry Rubin to ask, “Why Is an Anti-American Islamist, Obama’s Favorite ME Leader?

    Why is Obama in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood? It's quite simple. Obama is a Muslim brother.

    There is no mistaking Obama's loyalties, the greatest of which is to Islam. Obama is loyal to his ideological roots. He has employed taqiyah, tawriyah, and every other form of deception to fool the unobservant into doubting his "Muslim faith," but actions speak louder than words.

    Obama is the Meccan Horse. His traitorous actions make Benedict Arnold look like a patriot and a hero.

    • tom4you

      Israel should ask England, France, and Germany for assistance and forget the USA while Obama is in office….I'm afraid Israel alone may not be able to complete the task and USA is not going to get into the fight….OR have Israel tell Russia that they can have all the Iranian oil if they help out….

      • A Conservative

        Don't count on European countries. They have sold themselves to the Muslims and the Left.

  • DogWithoutSlippers

    Everyone of us adheres to our upbringing as youths. If you are Jewish, Christian or any other religion you never forget your religious upbringing – it is a part of you. Obama had a muslim father, a muslim step-father, lived in muslim countries, went to muslim schools, recites the koran, bows to Saudi kings, and in his own words thinks the 'call to prayer is the prettiest sound in the world' and that 'if the winds turn he is on the side of the muslims', worshipped at the mosque, had muslim mentors and has a muslim family and friends – he is an ingrained muslim. PERIOD!!!
    I was raised a Catholic, would I ever make a verbal mistake and say "My Jewish faith", or would a Jew say, "My Christian faith" – NO, but he said "My muslim faith." HE IS AT THE VERY LEAST A MUSLIM SYMPATHIZER!

    • guest

      Muslims can call themselves christians. They think islam is all encompassing. His christian faith is a lie to us,though. Their christ is coming back to kill all the infidels. Wolves in sheeps clothing…

    O sides with the MB cause hes one of them. Now, go back to playing your video games, or watching the Academy Awards cause we got to find out who Jennifer Aniston is wearing.

    Once the MB take over America, Jennifer Aniston will be wearing a burqa, but they are to stupid to realize what is coming.

  • SoCalMike

    Obama is a Jew-hating America hating sell out like so many of his government-worshiping political coreligionists.
    This big eared boy is devoid of any knowledge beyond political calculation and the ability to speak to crowds.
    He couldn't even run a 7/11.

  • effemall

    Four comments and all in agreement. There is no mystery here. He showed his card the first or second week in office when he used executive power to send $20 million to the Palestinians or to Gaza without any request from them as far as I know. The question is, can we impeach him on the basis of working with the enemy of America? The man must be removed.

    • Judy Burks

      Agree, we need to get him out of office before he and his regime totally destroy our country.

  • A Conservative

    Why is Obama in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood? Simple. There is a high chance that he is a Muslim. The evidence points to his Muslim upbringing since young, his Quran classes and his deliberate associations with anti-American Leftists when he went to the USA. Furthermore, if Obama were a Christian, why isn't he speaking positively about Christianity? Why did he not denounce Islam once at all? If he is a Muslim like Dr Zuhdi Jasser – he lives in the USA, is honest about Islam's vile teachings and attempts to reform Islam – then there is no problem with Obama being president. But the problem is he has been trying to hide his Islamic background and deflect questions on them, while actively enabling Islam the political ideology, which attempts to restore the caliphate, beheads apostates and treats Christians, Jews and women like the Blacks during the Apartheid.

    Obama's support for the Muslim Brotherhood is in no way due to incompetence, naivete, etc. Rather, I think it is a deliberate action as the Muslim Trojan Horse to undermine Israel and accelerate the restoration of the caliphate. I'm not being conspiratorial. Obama's actions and background speak for themselves.

    Why is Housein in bed with the MB ? Because Housein is a Mu-slim and a Covert Is-lamist himself. It is his duty to implement the MB charter to destroy the west and implement Sharia and the Caliphate. Why do I say this ?

    1. Housein was born to a Mu-slim father then by Sharia law he is a Mu-slim by birthright.
    2. Housein has never officially renounced his faith therefore he is still a Mu-slim
    3. All people named Housein are Mu-slim the two names are synonamous
    4. By Sharia law the punisment for aposty is death. However no fatwa or death sentence has been issued for Housein
    therefore he is a Mu-slim
    5. Housein's alleged new religion is Black Liberation Theology which is Mar-xism based and not Christian based is completely compatible with Is-lam and hence has never changed religions as he has suggested.

  • OregonBuzz

    Short answer: because he is a Muslim.

  • johnnywoods

    If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…… Well guess what?

  • Judy Burks

    Because I t believe that he is a Muslim and he is loyal to them Not the American people.

  • Reis Kash

    If Obama is loyal to anything other than Obama, it is Islam. The Muslim call to prayer – "The sweetest sound I ever heard." If the political situation changes and Islam is threatened – "I will side with Islam." Muslim prayer – "I could say many of the important prayers in Arabic . . . " When Obama's pastor said "God damn America" in various forms over the 20 years Obama and his family sat in the ex-Black Muslim's church – "I never heard him say anything bad about America." Under the precepts of the Koran a true Muslim may pretend to be a Christian, may tell whatever lies he must tell to maintain the deception, and act in any way he needs to act to further the purposes of Islam. In a sentence, this is Obama.

    All Arabs I knew in my native country, when asked about their religion, would invariably answer :
    Christian ! !
    But as soon as the first mosque was built, all of them went around with the big beads Muslim
    praying rosary around their left hands…
    I'm positively sure OBAMA limps of the same foot and used this deceipt to advance in studying
    and getting elected President thanks to the stupidity of a lot of people who didn't know a damned
    thing about this parachutist but some voted for him because they believed in his "CHANGE" and
    some others because he was the choice of their pollitical party…
    The fact is that his actions prove his inclinations and we can only hope the American people gets
    up from under his spell and denies him the reelection,,,,
    Fact is, even a baby woud do a bwetter job that what hew ias doing and way cheaper

    • rick

      Everyone remembers when Obama said that he went to all 57 states…..guess what people……there are 57 states, according to most Muslims and the Quran…hummm makes one wonder don't it, also why did he have his watch, (he said it was being worked on), and other jewelry off during that Muslim holiday last year, you know witch one I'm talking about the one where Muslims can'[t wear jewelry.
      God help Israel and what is left of good Americans, Please O Lord save us form the Muslin pig Obama….LOL
