Our partners in peace, the Muslim Brotherhood?
While we were sleeping, literally and figuratively, this President decided that the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood are actually swell folks who deserve our recognition. Yes, the same Muslim Brotherhood who is among the most virulent Jew haters on the planet, spawn of Hitler and the genocidal Nazi death machine, will now be welcomed into our diplomatic circles.
From Politico we read:
The U.S. has decided to formally resume contact with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood group - which does not recognize Israel - in a move that could further alienate some Jewish voters already skeptical of Barack Obama, it was reported.
One senior U.S. official said the Brotherhood's rise in political prominence after the forced departure of former President Hosni Mubarak earlier this year makes the American contact necessary.
The political landscape in Egypt has changed, and is changing... It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency," said the official, who confirmed the news to Reuters on condition of anonymity.
The Muslim Brotherhood - founded in 1928 to promote a conservative version of Islam in politics, culture and society - has previously had some communication with the U.S. through Brotherhood Members of Parliament who had been technically elected as independents. U.S. diplomats had been instructed only to deal with Brotherhood members in their role as Members of Parliament.
Politico, another tame house organ for the current Administration, never misses an opportunity to toss a little mud toward the right. Did you catch that description of the Muslim Brotherhood? "... a conservative version of Islam in politics, culture and society." This blatantly crude attempt to smear conservatives adds to the presumption that the editorial staff of Politico thinks the I.Q. of it's typical reader is somewhere around room temperature.
For an honest and well researched history of the Muslim Brotherhood, read Karin McQuillan's eloquent American Thinker article from January 2011.
In recognizing the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama and his "Let's Assault America" Administration, has truly stepped over the line by debasing the moral integrity and fundamental values of this great nation.
