Democracy really does die in darkness.
The only thing true about the Washington Post’s “The U.S. is wrong about the Muslim Brotherhood — and the Arab world is suffering for it” is the headline.
Obama’s backing of the Muslim Brotherhood led to church bombings in Egypt, ethnic cleansing of Christians in Syria and of Africans in Libya, the rise of ISIS, and a probable overall death toll approaching actual genocide.
But the Muslim Brotherhood and its coterie of lefty western sympathizers never stop.
The WaPo op-ed cites David Kilpatrick, a hack who never stopped misleading readers about Islamic terrorism, for a bizarre thesis.
“During the Obama presidency, the US administration was wary of the Muslim Brotherhood, which had come to power in Egypt after the country’s first-ever free elections.”
1. The elections weren’t free
2. Obama had backed the Brotherhood to the hilt. He backed them under Mubarak. His crony had even attempted to intimidate Coptic Christians into not protesting against Morsi.
“The United States’ aversion to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is more apparent in the current Trump administration, is the root of a predicament across the entire Arab world. The eradication of the Muslim Brotherhood is nothing less than an abolition of democracy and has guaranteed that Arabs will continue living under authoritarian and corrupt regimes.”
The Brotherhood forms authoritarian regimes. That’s why Morsi and his counterpart in Tunisia were overthrow. It’s why the Brotherhood is still battling for power in Libya.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s very motto is that of Islamic theocracy, the absolute rule of Koranic law. Its idea of democracy is that of Iran or Turkey. A pathway to power that is limited to those who agree with it. Backed by domestic repression of those who do not.
The historical revisionists who keep screaming about a coup, ignore the protests that preceded it.
Morsi, like Mubarak, was told by the military to step down.
There are efforts here in Washington, encouraged by some Arab states that do not support freedom and democracy, to persuade Congress to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. If they succeed, the designation will weaken the fragile steps towards democracy and political reform that have already been curbed in the Arab world… the emergence of Islamic democracy, such as the Ennahda movement in Tunisia, and the maturing of democratic transformation in the other countries.
Ennahda was brought down by political protests from the civil society after it made its commitment to Islamic autocracy clear.
Why is the Washington Post promoting the mass murder of Jews?
Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, the religious leader of the “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda, had said, ”Suicide attacks represent the highest level of martyrdom, because there are no civilians in Israel.”
“We have the children bomb and these human bombs must continue until liberation.”
Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, the spiritual guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, went one better with a fatwa approving even the murder of unborn Jews.
Sheikh Rashid Ghannouchi, of Tunisia’s Islamist Ennahda, had stated, “There are no civilians in Israel. The population—males, females and children—are the army reserve soldiers, and thus can be killed.”
Ghannouchi had been hosted by MPAC. The Islamist group had called him, “One of the most important figures in modern Islamic political thought and theory.”
The Washington Post had run an interview with Ghannouchi and stories and editorials in the paper had repeatedly praised him and his movement. One article describes him as “visionary”.
Genocide is visionary indeed.
On Friday July 21st, Imam Ammar Shahin delivered a sermon at the Islamic Center of Davis calling for the extermination of the Jews. He quoted an infamous Islamic Hadith which claims that Judgement Day won’t come around until the Muslims hunt down and exterminate the Jews.
“Oh Allah, liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews,” he prayed. “Annihilate them down to the very last one,” he added.
The Washington Post tried bringing in its own translator, who accused MEMRI of Islamophobia, and tried to claim that the Imam had only been referring to those Jews involved in the fighting in Jerusalem.
Why is the Marty Baron/Jeff Bezos social justice rag continuing to cover up for genocidal anti-Semitism?
