Yesterday White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz redefined the Taliban as an “armed insurgency.” He just could not bring himself to say Islamic terrorists. This young fella was straining to remember his assigned talking points about the “Tal-ee-ban.” We reported yesterday how BBC Arabia and Al Jazeera now have a policy of not using the word “terrorists” — after all, we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, or offend the enemy.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.”
“One member of the delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page. That delegation member, Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood.”
I just don’t have the words to convey my feelings about this. Well I do, but they’re not suitable in mixed company.
Just two days ago, we reported that Obama campaign operatives have been dispatched to Israel to work against Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in the upcoming March elections. And now our State Department is hosting members associated with the original Islamist group, the Muslim Brotherhood. The 1992 Explanatory Memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood written by Mohammed Akram outlining strategic objectives against America and North America is actually coming true before our very eyes. In fact, I’d like to share this section from the Explanatory Memorandum verbatim:
Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miser- able house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no es- cape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.
How can it be that our own State Department is colluding with the enemy and especially after President al-Sisi’s incredible speech on New Years Day? We’ve written here often of the deliberate words and actions of Secretart of State John Kerry, certain Democrat Senators, and the Obama administration against the post-Mohammed Morsi Muslim Brotherhood government. And we all know — well, those of us keeping tabs — that at his 2009 Cairo speech Obama requested Muslim Brotherhood members to be seated front and center.
Is there any challenge to my assertion that Obama is an Islamist sympathizer?
The Free Beacon writes, “The delegation also includes Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor. Sharaby, the Brotherhood-aligned judge, flashed the Islamist group’s popular symbol in his picture at the State Department and wrote in a caption: “Now in the U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone,” according to an independent translation of the Arabic.”
So let me understand this. A Muslim Brotherhood affiliated individual visiting our State Department praised their “steadfastness”? Heck, now I’m personally offended, because “Steadfast and Loyal” is the motto of the 4th US Infantry Division — but it seems to be descriptive of how the Muslim Brotherhood sees our State department.
“Another member of the delegation, Maha Azzam, confirmed during an event hosted Tuesday by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID)—another group accused of having close ties to the Brotherhood—that the delegation had “fruitful” talks with the State Department. Maha Azzam confirms that ‘anti-coup’ delegation, which includes 2 top [Muslim Brothers], had ‘fruitful’ conversations at State Dept,” Egypt expert Eric Trager tweeted. Assam also said that the department expressed openness to engagement, according to one person who attended the event. Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), told the Washington Free Beacon that the State Department is interested in maintaining a dialogue with the Brotherhood due to its continued role in the Egyptian political scene.”
“The State Department continues to speak with Muslim Brothers on the assumption that Egyptian politics are unpredictable, and the Brotherhood still has some support in Egypt,” he said. “But when pro-Brotherhood delegations then post photos of themselves making pro-Brotherhood gestures in front of the State Department logo, it creates an embarrassment for the State Department.”
Embarrassment? No, it goes far beyond that, it is treasonous. It is aiding and abetting the enemy. It is providing material support and comfort to the enemy.
I invite any of you to read the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory-Memorandum and tell me if what I just stated was wrong. There is no excuse for what happened — just as when the Obama national security team met with an Islamic cleric who once put out a fatwa against American troops — but then again, the same cleric was praised by President Obama during a speech at the United Nations. This should provide a clear window into the mentality of the Obama administration and why it has no compunction about meeting with or negotiating with Islamic terrorists.
So, what will it take America? What will make you finally realize we have a treasonous administration in charge of our country? What will it take for our new GOP Congress — House and Senate — to finally pass a resolution that censures President Barack Obama for his collusion and support to militant Islamic terrorism?
Yes, it is time to take that action — if the policies of President Obama and his administration to enable and support Islamic totalitarians and jihadists continues, something must be done. And there may be another action that should be taken if this clear and present danger within our halls persists. Obama has threatened our Congress with a veto if they pass sanctions against Iran — how many extensions to the talks will have to occur? Obama refuses to define the enemy. As a matter of fact, he shows clear anger and disdain towards any perceived affront to Islam, i.e. “Let me be clear, ISIS is not Islamic” and “The future does not belong to those who defame the prophet of Islam”
Maybe that’s the reason Obama refused to attend the anti-Islamic terror rally in Paris? Perhaps he agreed with the actions taken against the staff of Charlie Hebdo? I would prefer his definitive explanation instead of allowing me and others to define his actions.
Ladies and gents, we have a serious problem. We have a president and an administration that is comfortable embracing our enemy — that is an issue. The policies and actions support that assertion. Go ahead, prove me wrong. And drones are not a strategy.
I leave you with this well-known interpretation of comments by Marcus Tullius Cicero from his Second Catiline Oration,
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
Remember these prescient words from Edmund Burke, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men (and women) to do nothing.” And there are few greater evils than the Muslim Brotherhood.
