CAIR, ISNA and ICNA Reading from a Muslim Brotherhood Script on Egypt

MuslimBrotherhood

But don’t accuse them of being Muslim Brotherhood front groups.

America’s leading Muslim Brotherhood legacy groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Islamic Circle of America (ICNA), are demanding that the Obama administration take punitive action against Egypt in the wake of last week’s shooting of Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators.

“We urge an end to the silence over the ongoing massacres of peaceful pro-democracy activists in Egypt by forces that receive billions of American taxpayer dollars,” CAIR wrote in a press release Saturday.

Apparently burning down churches is considered a typically peaceful pro-democracy form of activism. But since Sunni Muslims are the majority, attacking Christians would be a pro-democratic form of activism.

That’s why democracy gave them the Muslim Brotherhood.

In a similar press release Monday, ICNA appealed to Americans to contact the White House and the secretaries of State and Defense to demand immediate action against “the undermining of democracy and the suppression of freedom of expression in Egypt.”

Oddly enough neither CAIR nor ICNA were particularly concerned when Morsi’s thugs were torturing and killing activists and suppressing freedom of expression.

ISNA was created by Muslim Brotherhood members in the United States. CAIR was part of a Brotherhood network of Hamas-support groups called the “Palestine Committee.” And ICNA’s founders had ties to the Pakistani-based Jamaat-e-Islami, the Indian subcontinent’s equivalent of the Muslim Brotherhood.

These American Muslim Brotherhood-aligned groups looked the other way while Muslim Brotherhood gangs beat up anti-Morsi protesters last December following Morsi’s decree assuming emergency powers and Islamists attacked Coptic Christianity’s holiest cathedral in April.

They similarly had no complaints when media reports showed that many in Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority was barred from voting in December’s constitutional referendum by Brotherhood activists. Silence was also the rule when the Egyptian National Council for Human Rights (ENCHR) found 1,137 examples of voting irregularities in Egypt’s constitutional referendum.

Like the rest of the Brotherhood, CAIR and ISNA see democracy as a train. Once they reach power, they get off it. When someone gives them the boot, they begin crying again about democracy.

    “We urge an end to the silence over the ongoing massacres of peaceful
    pro-democracy activists in Egypt by forces that receive billions of
    American taxpayer dollars,” CAIR wrote in a press release Saturday.

    But, it was okay if Morsi’s Brotherhoodiess in power got “billions of American taxypayer dollars.” Now that the Brotherhoodies are out of power, it’s not okay to send billions in the general direction of Egypt. And since when did CAIR and its sister Brotherhood entities really care about American taxpayers?

      they don’t…it’s their way of telling their muslim in chief that they are upset at him and because he is as ineffectual as ever, they are lashing out like children do when you take their lollipop away.

    “There are mediators from Egypt and from abroad. We don’t mind engaging in a dialogue, but under the basis of ending the coup and returning to a situation that is constitutionally legal. We want the rights of the people to be respected and return their choice of president and deputies to the parliament. We want to follow what the constitution states. It isn’t up to the general to wake up from his sleep, find a weapon in his hands, go out to the street and tell the people that he is the president that he chooses for them. I assure for you that any attempt to break up the sit-in by force will anger the people of this country. Bloodshed won’t stop the revolution. Bloodshed won’t prevent from opposing the bloody military coup,” warned one of the leaders of Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Al Beltagi in an interview with Euronews correspondent, Mohammed Shaikhibrahim.

      actually, i would beg to differ with the bloodshed comment, i.e., not stopping the revolution…if enough MB are killed i would imagine it would do wonders to halt them in their quests for worldwide sharia if there were a lot less of them around…ya think?

    I find it laughable when I read obviously pro Israeli ‘writers’ bringing up the subject of American tax dollars. Shame on you. 80% of aid to Egypt goes to US contractors. The rest to Generals to keep Israel safe. Why not scream about billions going to Israel or bailouts of Israeli American bankers?

    • m4253y

      i think you are confusing the point of the article with your hatred of Israel and Bankers.

      “We urge an end to the silence over the ongoing massacres of peaceful pro-democracy activists in Egypt by forces that receive billions of American taxpayer dollars,” CAIR wrote in a press release Saturday.”

      The reference to aid was brought up by CAIR.

      It would appear that your intent was to obfuscate the facts that CAIR & ISNA are actively petitioning the American people to side with the MB.

      Does it pain you to have to troll this way? your knees must be sore.

    Israel is the only real natural ally in that part of the world and the only one we should be arming and funding.
    Our “Best and Brightest” foreign policy brass sadly have turned the US into a security leak and a diplomatic hammer used against Israel to force self defeating concessions to fake peace partners who only want the Jewish state destroyed.

    Obama has an open door policy for CAIR, and the DOJ provides office space and resources to CAIR; in turn, CAIR supports Democrats. They expect “their” president to do as he is told.
