Why Is Obama in Bed with the Muslim Brotherhood?

Pages: 1 2

According to Sherkoh Abbas, one faction of the SDC had family connections in various Gulf States at the highest level and went to them for financial support.  They were turned down, as Obama had instructed them to give money only to the SNC.

Nevertheless, the SDC is gaining traction amongst the Kurds, Druze, Sunnis, Christians, and even the Alawites.  This is so because these various minorities are beginning to think of a post-Assad Syria, and they all want a region of their own.  They have expressed their willingness to be secular, democratic, and a friend of Israel and will be asked to commit to this in writing.  They don’t want Islamism or Arabism.  They prefer peace, freedom, and prosperity.  So why isn’t Obama embracing them?

The Obama administration is totally in sync with the Muslim Brotherhood.  At the renowned Herzlia Conference this year, I met Salman Shalkh, one of the speakers from Qatar.  We had a long conversation in which he kept pushing for the Saudi Plan to be embraced by Israel.  This is the plan that Obama is committed to — i.e., ’67 borders with mutually agreed-upon swaps.

Shalkh argued that Israel should talk to Hamas, and I countered, “What’s the point?  We have nothing to offer to them.”  Shalkh was also an apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood.  These arguments should be expected from someone from Qatar.  Unfortunately, the same arguments are being made by the White House.  It is instructive to note that Shalkh is director of the Brookings Doha Center in Qatar, the Arab offshoot of the Brookings Institute that has so much influence with the State Department.  He told me that he was one of the people who drafted the Roadmap on behalf of the State Department.  I told him that it didn’t surprise me and suggested that he probably drafted the Saudi Peace Plan for them as well.

What is going on now in American foreign policy is not so much a product of the Islamist lobby fueled by both the Muslim Brotherhood and the gulf states as it is a product of a strategic alliance that has existed between the U.S. and the gulf states led by Saudi Arabia since before Israel declared her independence.  Unfortunately, President Obama, with his overt outreach to Islam, Muslims, and the Muslim Brotherhood, has taken it to another level.

It would appear that the ideas expressed by Mearsheimer and Walt in their book, The Israel Lobby, are being embraced by both the State Department and the White House.  These include the idea that the Israel lobby is too strong for America’s good and that Israel is a liability to America.

But the truth is otherwise, as John R. MacArthur pointed out in 2007, in “The Vast Power of the Saudi Lobby“:

Somehow, though, I can’t shake the idea that the Israel lobby, no matter how powerful, isn’t all it is cracked up to be, particularly where it concerns the Bush administrations past and present. Indeed, when I think of pernicious foreign lobbies with disproportionate sway over American politics, I can’t see past Saudi Arabia and its royal house, led by King Abdullah.

This article is a classic and should be read in full.

Obama has decidedly moved from an alliance with Israel to an alliance with the Islamists.

MK Aryeh Eldad, in a speech given in the fall in the U.S., when Israel was intending to act against Iran militarily, said word came down from the White House that “if you act alone, you will remain alone.”  Because Israel is so dependent on the U.S. for resupply of weapons and munitions in a prolonged war, this threat changed the calculus immediately.  It is true that when Mahmoud Abbas was threatening to go to the U.N. for recognition, the Obama administration lobbied around the world for negative votes.  But at the same time, Obama threatened Netanyahu that Obama would withhold his veto if Israel took punitive action against the PA by annexing some of the territories or by withholding funds.  Finally, he used the same threat to get Israel to instruct AIPAC to lobby Congress not to punish the PA by withholding U.S. funds.

Over the last six months, Israel has been warned by a succession of senior military and administration officials not to attack Iran, at this time, all in the name of giving sanctions a chance.  But who believes that sanctions will stop Iran?  And who believes that that the U.S. will in the end attack Iran to stop them?

So while Obama is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, he is keeping Israel under his thumb.

Isi Leibler takes exception to all this and reminds everyone:

[T]his organization [The Muslim Brotherhood]  represents one of the most fanatical and dangerous of the radical Islamist groups in the region, with a dark record of violence and terrorism imbedded in its DNA. It is rabidly anti-Western, anti-Christian, antisemitic, committed to imposing sharia law and a global Caliphate – and willing to employ any means to further its objectives.

Many would argue that Obama is also “anti-Western, anti-Christian[, and] antisemitic.” Judging by his policies, they would be right.

    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.

      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….

        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.

    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.

    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
