Obama Rejects Muslim Brotherhood’s “Terrorist” Designation

While Egypt is busy fighting the Islamic terrorists that Obama won’t fight, Kerry is busy pleading with Egypt to stop fighting Islamic terrorists.
US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday expressed widespread concern over the military-backed Egyptian government’s crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood, days after the once ruling group was designated a terrorist organization.
Kerry and Fahmy “agreed that there can be no place for violence in Egypt and that the Egyptian people deserve peace and calm,” Psaki said.
But the secretary of state also “underscored the need for an inclusive political process across the political spectrum that respects the fundamental human rights of all Egyptians in order to achieve political stability and democratic change.”
A US official told Reuters that Egypt was going “way too far” in the crackdown, adding that the Obama administration had no intention of taking any action against Cairo in response, or following suit in labeling the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.
Unsurprisingly, Obama Inc. is not about to begin arresting its own Muslim Brotherhood security advisers or any of their other terrorist cronies.
Inclusive political process has always been code for a Muslim Brotherhood takeover. Every time Obama, Kerry, Rice or Psaki spew that nonsense, they’re calling for theocratic terrorist tyranny.
The United States is “deeply concerned” about the worsening climate for freedom of assembly and peaceful expression in Egypt, the State Department said, Monday night.
“The implementation of Egypt’s restrictive demonstrations law has led to an increase in arrests, detentions, and charges against opposition figures, human rights activists, and peaceful demonstrators, and sends a chilling message to civil society at large,” said the statement from department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
Interestingly enough there was no such concern when the Muslim Brotherhood was in power and was ruthlessly squashing protests. Obama Inc. refused to stop shipping them weapons or helping them suppress the opposition.
That’s still what Obama Inc. is doing.
