Hillary and the Muslim Brotherhood

M. Catharine Evans
Why would a proto-feminist Secretary of State be silent on the very real potential of a patriarchal Islamist system like the Muslim Brotherhood gaining power in Egypt? Hillary Clinton's deafening silence in full view of her boss's Muslim sympathies as well as her own complicity in dialoguing with those who wish to subjugate women worldwide has left even die-hard Hillary supporters baffled and disgusted.

From Reverend Amy at noquarterusa:

How can Secretary Clinton continue to support President Obama in his push for the Muslim Brotherhood to be involved in governing Egypt? The Muslim Brotherhood wants to implement Sharia Law, for heaven's sake. How in the world can Secretary Clinton stand by this? How can she possibly condone the impact this will have on women in Egypt given her lifelong work for women to have full human rights? How? I simply do not understand this. It seems to fly in the face of everything for which she has stood.

It's simple really, she must agree with her boss despite the ‘woman's progress is human progress' rhetoric she spouts at the U.N.  The subjugation of women is fine as long as it serves the administration's political ends. Remember President Obama's 2009 Cairo speech where he promised the U.S. would defend Islamic religious teachings:

The US. Government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it....I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal."

In the same month the President spoke those words, the State Department set up an office for outreach to the Muslim Communities. Farah Pandith reported directly to Clinton who would "seek a new beginning with Muslims around the world." Did that include the Muslim Brotherhood determined to impose Sharia law around the world?  Honor killings and harsh punishments for women emanate from the same law as the hijab. This from Pamela Geller:

Aset Magomadova leaves Calgary court Thursday July 15, 2010, after a judge sentenced the city woman to a three-year term of probation for strangling her promiscuous, 14-year-old daughter. Court of Queen's Bench Justice Sal LoVecchio said a non-custodial punishment would be sufficient for Magomadova's killing of daughter Aminat. 

Sharia law in Canada.  That's all that this is. Period. Islam is crazy? Crazy like a fox?

Clinton is nothing more than an Obama knock-off in her alliance with Islamic groups.  Instead of specifically denouncing the Muslim Brotherhood and any other sect that adheres to laws promoting the maiming and killing of girls, the former Senator is silent. Rather, she should refer her disillusioned supporter, Reverend Amy, to one of the many ‘it takes a village' speeches she has been asked to give over the years. In light of her recent stance on the Egyptian crisis, oppressed women under Islamist regimes definitely do not have an ally in Hillary Clinton.
