What is it with the President and the MB?

The president has a very strange allegiance structure when it comes to Islam -- strange in that he is not backing the one true counterjihadist leader in the Middle East: President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt.

El-Sisi actually took on the leading Islamic scholars at one of the oldest universities in the world, al-Azhar University, and told them that their thinking about Islam had to undergo a fundamental reformation.

Here is a quote from el-Sisi’s speech:

It’s inconceivable that the thinking that we hold most sacred should cause the entire umma [Islamic world] to be a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world. Impossible!

That thinking -- I am not saying “religion” but “thinking” -- that corpus of texts and ideas that we have sacralized over the years, to the point that departing from them has become almost impossible, is antagonizing the entire world.

One way or another the jihad to subjugate all religions and peoples to Islam had to be rejected -- textually and operationally. And he puts his money where his mouth is. President el-Sisi has just carried out air strikes in Libya in retaliation for the beheading of more than a dozen Egyptian Christians by ISIL inspired jihadists.

And what is the president of the United States doing? Is he backing el-Sisi? No. He is

(1) backing the sharia supremacist Muslim Brotherhood and their military arm Hamas who oppose el-Sisi and seek the demise of Israel

(2) excluding Egypt from his “coalition” of Arab Muslim states fighting against ISIS and

(3) withdrawing military support from Egypt’s armed forces.

From targeting Gaddafi, Mubarak and Assad and supporting Khamenei over the Green Revolution and turning a blind eye as the MB targets Kuwait, the MB seems to lead Obama by the nose. You tell me.
