Obama Proposes Arming Muslim Brotherhood in Somalia


Why settle for just arming the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria?

Obama decided this week that the Muslim Brotherhood-linked regime ruling parts of Somalia out of the capital city Mogadishu is eligible to receive U.S. military aid and weapons, sending a memo to Secretary of State John Kerry announcing the new finding and laying the ground work for even more foreign entanglements in Africa.

The Obama administration formally recognized the Muslim Brotherhood-linked regime of Somali “President” Hassan Sheikh Mohamud in January — the first time a U.S. administration has officially recognized a Somali “government” since 1991.

Providing military assistance to the Somali government is in the interest of U.S. national security, President Barack Obama said in a memorandum.

Obama issued a notice to Secretary of State John Kerry noting his position on arms exports to Somalia.

“I hereby find that the furnishing of defense articles and defense services to the Federal Republic of Somalia will strengthen the security of the United States and promote world peace,” Obama’s memo stated.

Giving weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood is bound to promote world peace. How could it not?

    Never heard of such utter tosh in my 24 years of existence. To the simple western mind any Muslim government that comes in to power has a link to the Muslim brotherhood. Let me tell you from a man who is a Somali, this president is not aligned to the Muslim brotherhood. He's a secularist and we have had about enough of ever tom, dick and harry who can string a few words together claiming to know everything that goes on in the "third world". You know nothing about Somalia, the president and the people, stop trying to destabilize an already weak government you agent provocateurs. Funny how you link to a well known racist website for your source, god only knows what you got for your degree classification if you are using those types of references, because they are equivalent to Wikipedia.

      what, you think that it matters that Somalis are black? Are you high? Which site is "a well-known racist website", pray tell? And what makes what it says inaccurate?

      Somalis that immigrate to America sometimes cause problems because they're muslim supremacists who think they're some hot ***t. Fighting with AMERICAN BORN AFRICAN AMERICANS! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHM3R6ZRnQU

      The Brotherhood does stealth too, they've infiltrated USA. Do the average people know this? NO. They do not. If you're an average Somali, and you don't know that the regime running your country is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood OR has been INFILTRATED by it (you DO know what "infiltrated" means, don't you? It means they do it SECRETLY!), then you don't know it. Only people who have taken the effort and time to research and investigate would know.

      How come several somalis end up in Al qaeda? Obviously there's some radicalization there.

      "mr funny" is obviously a black supremacist who spends his time spreading lies on the internet.

      Not sure what "well known" racist website you are referring to? The New American is one of the best and most reputable news/analysis sources around and has been openly fighting racism (and all forms of collectivism) for decades. UPI is not a very good news wire but I don't think it's racist… Creeping Sharia isn't racist, it is opposed to Islam, which as you probably know is not a race… As to your other assertions,
      everybody knows the president of Somalia is a Muslim with links to the Somalian branch of the MB. Here is the BBC talking about it: bbc. co. uk/news/world-africa-19556383 (remove spaces to make it work)

      I know enough about Somalia. I served there in 93-94. That place is a toilet, life means nothing there and no Somalis deserve our support. They are a lawless bunch waiting for a handout and they will kill you the second they get it.

  • Rothschild

    It seems to me, that this is what happens when unqualified people (Obama) are rewarded with power; because they do not have any experience, insight, or knowledge about things…i.e., losers.

    I say this as a liberal…in the United States the only last real president we had was JFK.

    • http://www.adinakutnicki.com AdinaK

      We are not just talking about unqualified people. The issue is that he is a POTUS who is anti-American, even as he babbles about policies being in the "American interest".
      To be sure, this is his plan – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/13/coming-full-c

      Picking John Brennan as head spook is part and parcel of said worldview – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/11/john-brennan-

      My backup, for the above thesis, is irrefutable.

        I see your point; but I was wanting to get to the point of why Obama
        is a undemocratic anti-American president.

        For example, my favorite president JFK was a liberal, a liberal
        Democrat, and I have no doubt if he was president today instead of
        Obama, he would be pro-Israel.

        To be a liberal, in the traditional meaning of it, is basically something
        that is completely different then what is commonly perceived by the
        mainstream media, and the sheeple, ( a product of the media) that
        believe anything, and everything force feed to them by the media.

        Being a liberal in the 60s was completely different then what being
        one today is…in that, the liberals were qualified experts, in many fields
        including politics; it was not simply a simplistic formula, a kind of thirty
        second commercial ad about how to be a liberal, like it is today.

        Most real liberals in the 60s that had any power were mostly unseen by
        the main stream media, but, they among other things, had a strong
        lobbying movement to work on everything current at the time from civil
        rights to anti-war movements….they were powerful…. because they were
        liberal, which was that they were not so much as being a member of a
        group called liberal , as it was a philosophy about life and politics that
        made them better, better qualified then the average person…. JFK was
        considered a great president because he was a liberal Democrat, at that time.

        So, when Obama obviously fails as a president, it is likely because he is not
        even qualified to be one, (especially a liberal one) because he does not know
        what he is talking about when he tries to use liberal tactics etc., or does he
        understand the day to day stuff of actually being a president, because he is
        to be blunt a loser…. that got voted into office.

          Robert F. Kennedy's 1948 visit to Palestine
          From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Kennedy_in_Pa

          Robert F. Kennedy visited the British Mandate of Palestine in 1948, one
          month before Israel declared its independence. Twenty-two years ol
          d at the time, he was reporting on the tense situation in the region for The
          Boston Post. During his stay, he grew to admire the Jewish inhabitants
          of the area.[1] He later became a strong supporter of Israel—a factor cited
          as Sirhan Sirhan's motivation for assassinating him on the first anniversary
          of the start of the Six-Day War.

          Regardless of any other theories, I am confident this one is correct.

        • Al Zanco

          Obama is completely unqualified and he only got into office riding on the liberal concoction of Affirmative Action (of the informal kind). In fact, he'd got every position he'd ever held that same way, whether a school admission or a government job. He hides his academic records for good reason.

          American Jews voted for him at ~75%. Now he's used the "like my child" routine to signal what he intends to do vis-a-vis the Palestinians. The words keffiyah and Nakba will soon be well known in the MSM.

  • Abdi

    What a silly racist article written by a inexperienced writer. Who seems to have no idea whatsoever about what he is on about.

    I hate these kind of journalist, instead of educating people, they are spreading lies and misinformation.

    • Mary Sue

      In other words, you have nothing to add.

      Where are your facts to back up your assertions? Yeah, I thought so…

    • Al Zanco

      As soon as I see someone hurl the tired out accusation of "racist", then I know that the accuser is the biggest racist himself. They must have some email alert system to send anti-Christian hatemongers to post comments. I notice that the trite theme is the same in both. It must be a racist Muslim Hasbara program.

    Somali-American man guilty in Christmas bomb plot
    Reuters – Thu, Jan 31, 2013

    "PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) – A Somali-American man was found guilty on Thursday of trying to blow up a Christmas-tree lighting ceremony [in 2010] in Oregon using a fake bomb supplied to him by undercover agents posing as Islamist militant…" http://news.yahoo.com/somali-american-man-guilty-

    Maybe King Obama will send Eric Holder to sue the prosecutors for being "racist".

    Bring them over here as "refugees", give them free everything including free college, then all they can think about is that they want to murder Christians – pointedly at a Christmas tree ceremony. Well, in that they are a lot like the ACLU.

    I'm only surprised that Reuters didn't call it a "Winter Holiday Tree plot".

    In fact, there is no relationship b/w the Muslim Brotherhood and the president's party in Somalia,

    I think president Obama should concentrate more on fixing the U.S. economy and the need of the American people as his ultimate priorities. Let those other countries like Somalia and Syria take care of their own internal problems, that is NOT, NOT and I am stressing NOT the problem of the American people and of the American tax payers to babysit and care for every war-torn countries in the world.

  • gee59

    Giving money and/or weapons to people that hate you is counter-productive.

    • Al Zanco

      I'm a hetero white male Christian, so Obama has hate for me, too. Heaven knows that Michelle Obama and Eric Holder hate me ten time more than that.

  • cindy

    if someone infiltrates an organization and the average citizen that does their research can find this out then they didn't do a very good job of infiltrating…….or maybe your just reading up on rumors or myths? like the one where bush blew up the twin towers himself and not muslim terrorists……

    • Mary Sue

      There's something called the CIA. Maybe you've heard of them.

    as Somalia, young man living in Somalia am sure, this is is true, Somalia President, is head founder of, Somalia islamist group named, :" Dam Gadid" new blood which was part of, Al-Aslah, a Muslim Brotherhood Organ in Somalia, and East africa. some sources says that he has link with CIA, when he was working as humantrian organization in Somalia and USA has involved his election, it seem that he is playing two cards.

    in addition to that, the aim of the president is to pacify his country meanwhile many Somalia are not happy, the way he politicize, the Somalia issue as clan based issue, he opposed the federalism and want to force Somalia people as central government which is not currently a solution for the country, I agree with writer this peace true information, now a wing of his group, Mr Garyare is in Cairo for negotiation and he was summoned by the Muslim brotherhood Imam.

  • Abdinur

    This article is pointless by associating Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud with Muslim brotherhood. There are an independent politicians included in this government who were expelled from Al Islah, Somalia' Muslim Brotherhood wing. But the President has nothing to do with BM and he is from the civil society.
    Stop inflammatory and racist language Mr, Liar.

    • Mary Sue

      there was nothing racial about anything in the article.
