Obama’s Big Brotherhood Bet

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


0625-morsi_full_600In the spring of 2009, Obama went down to Cairo. He skipped the gaming tables at the Omar Khayyam Casino at the Cairo Marriott and instead went over to the Islamist baccarat tables at Cairo University and bet big on the Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama had insisted on Muslim Brotherhood attendance at a speech that was part apology and part abandonment. The apology was for American power and the abandonment was of American allies.

The text of the speech was largely inconsequential in the same way that most of the words that scroll across the teleprompters of politicians are. In politics, the speech is often the medium while the timing, the audience and the location are the message. And the message was that the Brotherhood’s hour had come.

Obama was following through on an idea that had long been an article of faith on the left. The idea was that the United States had invested in a defunct status quo and that our biggest problems were our allies. The only way out was to toss them all overboard.

Generations of diplomats had griped from their walled compounds in Riyadh, Kuwait City or Doha that many of our problems in the region would go away if Israel somehow went away. But this was bigger. It involved dumping every single allied government in the region to start fresh with new governments elected through popular democracy and enjoying popular support. It would be a new beginning. And a new beginning was also the title of the Cairo speech.

The idea wasn’t new, but it was right up there with proposals to unilaterally abandon our nuclear arsenal or dedicate ten percent of the budget to foreign aid; ideas that a lot of diplomats liked, but that they knew no one would ever be crazy enough to pull the trigger on.

And then Obama tried to pull the trigger on two out of three. What he wanted was for the Brotherhood to win so that it could make the War on Terror irrelevant.

As much as the advocates of smart and soft power insisted that Islamic terrorism had nothing to do with Islam, they knew better. They knew that Al Qaeda wanted to create Islamic states that would form into a Caliphate. Central to its thinking was that it would have to fight to create these states. But what if the Caliphate could be created without a war?

To make it happen, all America had to do was surrender the Middle East.

The attacks of September 11 had created a serious crisis for liberal policymakers. Unlike the bombing of the World Trade Center on Clinton’s watch, these attacks could not be ignored or swept under the rug. But neither could liberals accept a clash of civilizations that would destroy their multicultural society or an extended series of international police actions that would militarize the country.

The logic that led from September 11 to the Cairo speech to Benghazi was impeccable. It combined the clean sweep theory with grand scale appeasement.

“Islamic terrorists are carrying out attacks because they want their countries to be ruled by Islam. Why not help them to do it?”

The United States withdrew support from its allies. It apologized, surrendered and waited for the takeovers to begin. When the dictators wouldn’t step aside voluntarily, the bombers were sent in.

The grand bargain with the Muslim Brotherhood was supposed to end the War on Terror by trading the Muslim Brotherhood’s brand of political Islamism for Al Qaeda’s campaign of terror. It was as if FDR had struck a deal with the Bolsheviks to get rid of the Trotskyites (and indeed such a bargain did operate briefly during WW2).

Obama’s grand bargain came to a squalid end on September 11. In Benghazi, the Muslim Brotherhood militia that was supposed to protect the mission instead sold it out and abandoned it.

The Brotherhood would accept American support, but it wouldn’t stop terrorist attacks against America. Its front groups in America would not cooperate with the FBI, its governments and militias in the Middle East would not protect American diplomatic facilities.

On September 11, the American embassy in Cairo was besieged by protesters with the support of the Muslim Brotherhood. In Tunis, the new Islamist government turned its back on the embassy, forcing Hillary Clinton to plead with President Marzouki to send out his own presidential guard to defend it.

In Benghazi and Cairo, Al Qaeda attacked while the Brotherhood played dumb. In Syria, Brotherhood and Al Qaeda militias worked together, while Brotherhood spokesmen insisted that they were the only secular alternative. In the United States, Al Qaeda terrorists carried out their “lone wolf” attacks while the Brotherhood front groups which ran most of the Islamic organizations in America claimed not to know what was going on.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s victories did not make Al Qaeda go away. Instead the two found common ground while playing a game of Good Terrorist and Bad Terrorist. Or as the mainstream media calls it, Moderates and Extremists.

Obama had stacked all of our allies in the Middle East that didn’t have enough oil to matter and bet them at the Brotherhood’s casino on a single spin of the wheel. And the Brotherhood took it all.

But Obama is still at the casino stacking up more chips. The next round of the game moves to Syria. Instead of the Brotherhood using its new power to protect the United States, the United States is expected to get involved in another Iraq in order to help the Brotherhood take over Syria to complete the Islamist triumphs of the Arab Spring.

The United States has become a tool of Muslim Brotherhood expansionism. Obama helped the Brotherhood overthrow governments by political means, but now the Brotherhood is demanding military intervention to help a Brotherhood/Al Qaeda coalition take over Syria. And if Obama goes along with it, he will have turned the United States military into the mercenaries of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The root cause of terrorism is not American foreign policy, but Muslim foreign policy. Appeasement turns American foreign policy into an arm of Islamic expansionism.

Americans have died because of Obama’s dirty deal with the Muslim Brotherhood. The question now is whether Obama will send American soldiers and pilots to die for the Brotherhood.

    I have always insisted if not for the Islamist-in-Chief's tie in with the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia the region would not be in flames, to the degree that it is, nor would Benghazigate have occurred. The proof, as is said, is in the pudding – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/13/coming-full-c

    It is intrinsic to note too, that if not for the above symbiosis then Boston's jihad could have been prevented , for Islam plus terror would have been threat number one. Everything else flows from there – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/18/muslim-brothe

      It begs the question: How did Obama first become acquainted with the Muslim Brotherhood? In the U.S., the most likely method is to encounter them within the Federal Prison system…where they recruit heavily. Given Obama's carefully cultivated and steered career path, that isn't too likely.

      You're correct in your theory that Obama is the father of the Arab Spring and all that has followed and is still yet to come. Ironic, isn't it? Israel is fighting for survival as hard as they can, and their most powerful "ally" is attempting suicide on a daily basis. It makes no sense unless you factor in the supernatural.

    "The Brotherhood would accept American support, but it wouldn’t stop terrorist attacks against America. Its front groups in America would not cooperate with the FBI, its governments and militias in the Middle East would not protect American diplomatic facilities."

    Uh yeah. Why? Because any caliphate must strive for global sovereignty. Appeasement never works with totalitarians. Obviously. Therefore cooperating with them simply allows them to look further down the road to the subsequent phases when the black flag is flying over the Whitehouse mosque. That's the place 0'Bama lives right now converted in to a victory mosque.

    If that sounds delusional, it's not my dream. It's the dream of the enemies living here. How far do we let them get before we take them seriously?

    The Nazi Blitzkrieg was also a "lone wolf attack" that had nothing to do with the Nazi regime and its peace-loving leaders. We should have let the moderate Nazis carry forth their peaceful plans and we would have avoided a lot of bloodshed.

      Three spot on posts, yes America and the World are being played and our population is
      so inadiquately informed that the Islamist machine is making progress on all fronts. Obama
      is the Muslim Brotherhood enabler and we will see depredations by this villainous man
      increase to unbelieveable levels, the left is working overtime in the American government
      to give his affiliate Islamists total success. My speculations as to why Islamist success
      helps the left is unclear but it is there. The forces of evil rise higher every day and if
      we are to survive as a Nation Patriots must confront the subversion and degredation of
      every aspect of our lives. Obama and the left are intent on making America unliveable
      for Americans, destroying our Constitutional guarantees, ruining our economy, overtaxing
      our strengths and in concert with other governments diluting our population with foreign
      parasites, not immigrants, just problem people played to take our land and future.

    Obama is betting on the Muslim Brotherhood, but he's still putting money on Marxism. Obama is hedging his power bet.

    Comrade Imambama not only speaks with a forked tongue but matches every duplicitous scheme with another. His loyalty to his bi-deology has him riding two totalitarian horses that aren't harnessed together by anything more than shared evil. Criminally narcissistic as he is, Obama wants to make sure he stays in power one way or the other. The consequences to the world mean nothing to him.

      "Obama is betting on the Muslim Brotherhood, but he's still putting money on Marxism. Obama is hedging his power bet."

      He doesn't even truly understand communism. And he doesn't understand sharia too well either. He thinks he can fuse all of the grand ideas to build Utopia. He's delusional and incoherent. Being delusional doesn't require coherency. Neither do today's voters.

        He's not the great intellectual he's been sold as. If he was, we'd of seen more from him academically and at the least his transcripts. Fellow U Chicago law professors called him incompetent but sadly not vocally or consistently enough before elections.

      • truebearing

        Obama is a true disciple of 'the end justifies the means." Whatever it takes, regardless the consequences, as long as he stays in power. His Bi-deology is important to him but not as important as his malignant narcissism.

  • Texas Patriot

    America's best strategy in the middle east going forward is clear. We abandon those governments that are ideologically prevented from ever being our friend and we back to the full the one government in the region that can be our friend and will be our friend: Israel. Until Muslims categorically renounce those verses of the Koran that call for global imperialism by military force and the mandatory imposition of sharia law on all people of the world, it is ideologically possible for any Muslim country to be friends with any non-Muslim country, and the sooner we realize that the better.

    • Texas Patriot

      CORRECTION: "ideologically impossible"

      Suppose muslimes did "renounce those verses of the koran that call for global imperialism by military force and the mandatory imposition of sharia law?" NOw suppose it was merely Al Taqiyya on a grand scale?

      I lived in NM for awhile,Alamogordo as a matter of fact. Trained with the IAF too. Now, wtf is Israel supposed to do,eh,let some of those chemical weapons Syria got from Saddam be used on them? Russia,Iran, HAMAS,etc. are all gunning for Israel. Maybe if you went to Israel and studied what is going on, you might get it. Ask yourself, "Who started the Crusades? Why did the USMC have to go to Libya in 1803? Who was Mohammed, and how did he operate,in the 600's,eh". The Jews have always been an excuse for the muzzies to attack. The muzzies need no excuse, because that's all they have ever done. What have they contributed to society since the 600's? Arafat got a Nobel prize,for being a terrorist,but so did Obama.

  • Glennd1

    Greenfield reverts to form here, how sad. All you rabid nationalists and Zionists out there need to stop and ask yourself one question. What are we doing in the mideast to begin with? I bet most of you dingbats couldn't even draw a map of the region, no less locate the massive U.S. military, intelligence, diplomatic and NGO presence in the region. Greenfield seems to claim that we are retreating from the region when all I can see is us deepening our entrenchment in their conflicts.

    What's really happening is that the West imposed this nation state order on the region in the wake of the collapse of the Ottoman empire and it's falling apart. Try reading some history about the past 100 years of this region – and you will laugh at the ridiculous point of view in this article.

    Unfortunately, Greenfield is a Zionist first so he believes that the U.S. is morally correct in helping the Zionists maintain their state in Palestine. Me? I could care less. Offer all Jews asylum here as they are persecuted in the world. And then be done with the entire region. We don't even rely on them for oil – that's the European's and Asia's problem. Let them solve it. There is only downside for us being so involved.

      "Unfortunately, Greenfield is a Zionist first so he believes that the U.S. is morally correct in helping the Zionists maintain their state in Palestine. Me? I could care less."

      Of course you couldn't care less. That's why you take the anti-Zionist side—spouting Arab propaganda—every time. /sarc

      "Offer all Jews asylum here as they are persecuted in the world."

      Thanks but no thanks. Even America is starting to look unsafe for the Jews, what with ObamaMarx turning it into a Cuba North. The Jews' nation-state may be in a turbulent region, but at least it's their state to defend, unlike any other in the world. It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

      • Glennd1

        Then go duke it out on your own. My people – the Irish – have had to deal with reality and make a peace that looks forward. I didn't ask you or the U.S. govt to back the Irish, yet they had much better and more recent land claims against the British. Do the same for your people. I don't feel any comradeship with Israelis anymore than I do the Taiwanese or South Koreans. Let them fend for themselves it will have no bearing on our country or our prosperity. Last time I checked that was the purpose of our national govt – to look out for our interests. Not some humanitarian escapade based on the biases or politics of the current inhabitant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

          • Glennd1

            Are you really as stupid as your comment seems? Our government isn't here to protect Ireland (which it didn't) or Israel, which it has. Does that basic comparison not even get through to you? I wonder, could you even draw a map of the mideast? Better yet, what achievable outcome does the U.S. seek in the region and how do our current policies bring us towards that goal?

            I have wake up call for you. The Arabs and the Muslims aren't going to give up to Israel. 65 yrs later and still going strong. And why should they? Israel ethnically cleansed 650,000 of them from their homes and stole their land, along with every other earthly possession they could not carry. It will be an endless conflict until one side or the other wins. In the meantime, I don't want an ounce of our energy or any of our money to go there as it's just more waste.

          • http://twitter.com/MyManJimmyJack @MyManJimmyJack

            Newsflash, Israelis aren't going anywhere either.

          • Glennd1

            One wonder, can you even do basic math? How many Israelis? 7.7 million. How many Arabs and Muslims surround them? Hundreds of millions. Zionists love to brag about their military prowess, but in fact if the Brits hadn't been arming them to the teeth for a long time before 1948, they would never have been able to stand up their nation. In '48 Jordan stayed on the sidelines, and Israel faced very disorganized opposition, but miraculously sprang to life as a nation with a 40,000 man strong army, amored capability, and an air force. All due to the Brits.

            After '67, we have guaranteed Israel's security. She doesn't survive till now without U.S. aid aid and implicit security guarantee. You do realize that the surrounding countries will win a war against Israel eventually if we stay out of it, yes? Our whole strategy of division in the region has been to prevent an alliance of factions in the mideast to join together to eliminate Israel. But that has blown up in our faces.

          • Glennd1

            I source a Benny Morris presentation at the LSE in London about 8 months ago in which he stated unequivocally that the Israelis would not have been able to sand up a military or a state without British support. There is nothing leftist about it. I'm not a leftist. I'm an old school conservative with libertarian leanings. I don't hate the Brits or Jews or Israelis. I just think Zionism is a disaster for all concerned.

            Who armed and trained Israel's enemies before WWI ended? It's enemies were indeed armed to the teeth. Calling Israel "armed to the teeth" by any measure even in 1948 is just insanity. How about you bring out some data to support your delusional rhetoric? We can compare any military statistics you'd like.

            That's a misleading statement. We've had treaties in the region that predate Israel's establishment. What's your point? Oh yes, the cold war. Forgot to mention that?

            "She doesn't survive till now without U.S. aid aid and implicit security guarantee."

            That's not certain at all. And have you ever considered that whatever support we give to Israel is not just a good investment for us strategically but also achieves some balance considering how much aid the hostile Islamic regimes receive?

            Have you ever heard of the Soviet Union? Your method of studying history is culling out a few statistics here and there to demonize your hated entity. But you probably got that way in school, so reading your rants for us is sad because we know you speak for more than a few indoctrinated fools who imagine themselves to have a superior understanding.

            That's what happens in war. If justice was not served for each individual, you can't blame Israel for that. I guess you need to study a lot more history even as you attack others for their supposed ignorance.

      You don't let an enemy that wants to rule you build up resources in preparation to do so. The world is too small to return to regional hegemonic powers that hate each other somehow living in peace by keeping apart. The world doesn't work that way any more and as they say, the genie can't go back in this particular bottle that you envision.

      Aspirations for global caliphate have not dissipated in nearly 1400 years. Technology only recently has made that possible. They're not that stupid. They noticed. They think it's the will of Allah and appeasement only makes them feel even more certain because that is an explicit component of their ideology.

      I guess most people are not intelligent enough to understand global politics with any useful clarity.

  • RiverFred

    Our government, by orders from the White House , refuses to acknowledge who the enemy is, in fact any reference to Muslim extremism, Jihad, Muslim terrorist, etc. has been eliminated from all government training manuals, government employees are not allowed to mention or discuss these words. That is why the Fort Hood Muslim terrorist (who yelled Allah Akbar while killing 13 marines) was called workplace violence and the Boston Muslim terrorist has not been called a Muslim terrorist, etc. by our government. What is really unbelievable is our government (by orders from the White House) is recruiting Muslims with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (a known terrorist group) to serve in the State Department.
    THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA I GREW UP WITH AND ONCE LOVED, SOMETHING SMELLS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

  • pennant8

    Daniel suggests that if Obama continues to cozy up to the Muslim Brotherhood he will turn the American military into mercenaries for their use. I would argue that the U.S. military is already well established as a mercenary force for Islam. Anytime we put troops on the ground in a Muslim country, be it Kuwait, Iraq or Afghanistan we by default become mercenaries for Islam because in all these conflicts both sides are Muslims, so no matter which side we align with we are fighting in the service of Islam. Someday soon we will find the U.S. Mercenary Department loaned out to protect the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from its hostile brethren.

    The Master of the Universe plainly states, " I will bless those who bless Israel, and I will curse those who curse Israel." That's good enough for me! Stand by Israel, or fall.

    Sometimes reality is so unbelievable… as despicable….

    America's problems are our inhouse Communists, Socialists, Progressives, Islamists and
    acculturated criminal classes. Obama is the front man and the rest are to numerous to
    mention, they are in every function of our lives, lives that are being made insecure and
    tenuous at best. There seems to be no clear and direct way to eliminate the traitors
    in our midst and only a clearly thinking and trained military mind will be able to do this.
    I am holding out for the Marines, as they are semper fi…………………William

      And who signs the Marines' paychecks? Give up your job and lose the ability to support your family or shoot a fellow American? Hmm…tough choice. No, they won't go against the government they work for. It will be up to the average Joe to set this country back on the right track. No one who works for any branch of the government will help us. We are on our own and we'd better wake up and come to grips with that reality before it's too late.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        The loyalty of the Marines is to the American people not a paycheck Fred and many
        average Joe has 'Semper Fi' tatooed on thier arm. To reduce Marines to a paycheck
        is not a nice thing to do…………………….William

    People really need to read Sayyid Qutb. (Google him for an intro.) His =Milestones= is a short easy read.

    Several pull quotes from his bio at Wikipedia: (Note the word "the" in the first one.)

    "an Egyptian author, educator, Islamist theorist, poet, and the leading member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in the 1950s and 60s. In 1966 he was convicted of plotting the assassination of Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser and was executed by hanging."

    "Even though most of his observations and criticism were leveled at the Muslim world, Qutb is also known for his intense disapproval of the society and culture of the United States,["

    "Sayyid Qutb's mature political views always centered on Islam — Islam as a complete system of morality, justice and governance, whose Sharia laws and principles should be the sole basis of governance and everything else in life "

    "Sayyid Qutb was a staunch Anti-Semite. In 1950 he published a book 'Our Struggle against the Jews", which forms a central part of today's Islamist Antisemitism"

    Great column, which I hope millions of Americans read! Obama is the Neville Chamberlain of the 21st century who is appeasing our Islamic Jihadist enemies. We should stay out of the mess in Syria and let the Muslims continue to slaughter each other there. Also, we should stop all Muslim immigration into the USA, which means we must kill the Immigration bill in Congress that expands Muslim immigration.

    - Jihad will never go away as its considered to be the Sixth pillar of Islam by the MB / Wahhabi / Salafi

    - Every terrorist have read the MB’s theorist Saïd Qotb books and used it to justify terrorism

    - Bin Laden, Al-Zawahiri, Al-Awlaki, etc. were members of the MB

    - The MB will never honor any agreement even with “allies”, they just apply the “Taqiyya” principle

  • Worldfredom

    I’ve posted elsewhere that Obama should be held for treason. Party politics aside, its high time the definition of treason be examined in the context of administrations position and deal making with the mb.
    It’s a prima facie case of treason to me and I’m not even a lawyer. I’m not an American either, just a strategic ally, and it seems to me to as plain as a nose on a face this is impeachable conduct. Stand up voting America and challenge your representation. on this critical matter. this what you want for your social and legal future???? I’m in a domino downline and helluva concerned for the future of my society.

    The Congress needs to retire Obama now.
    No matter who is next in line.
    They have to trust God that he will help those who help themselves and take action.

  • MacDaddy12345

    sorry, I disagree Congress needs to have Obama arrested and put in Gitmo.

    The 17th amendment needs to be repealed…and then the states will have their power back…The push for ‘multiculturalism’ comes from the federal government…repeal the 17th amendment…the billions of State monies, taken in by the federal gvmt is wasted…repeal the 17th amendment….Without the 17th amendment there would be no power to the federal gvt to order ‘political correctness’….If Scandinavia is any warning to the USA about the dangers of immigrating the enemy Islam then repeal the 17th amendment…
