“The term Muslim Brotherhood is an umbrella term for a variety of movements. In the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried al-Qaeda as a perversion of Islam,” Congress and the American people need not fear a Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt. Not when, as Clapper said, “They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt.” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a congressional hearing on February 10, 2011. Mubarak was one day away from resigning, under pressure from Washington, paving the way for a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt.
While Obama and his administration were pushing for the “very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence” Muslim Brotherhood to take power in Egypt we had other politicians screaming from the roof tops that the Brotherhood is nothing more than a terrorist group that will not only ruin Egypt but be a haven for more terrorist groups. Republican Senator Mark Kirk spoke out against the Brotherhood almost immediately when it appeared the Obama administration was pushing for them. “With so much at stake in the Middle East, Americans must be clear-eyed about the Muslim Brotherhood and its radical Islamic agenda with a pledge of jihad against the West and the State of Israel. We must heed growing warnings about the Muslim Brotherhood, their leaders and plans for taking Egypt back to the 13th century. We have seen this movie before – in Iran, in Lebanon and in Gaza. To prevent a strategic reversal on the scale of what happened in Iran, the United States and her allies should do all it can to support Egypt’s army and secular leaders, ensuring no future for the Muslim Brotherhood.” (February 3, 2011)
Even as 17 million Egyptians stormed their streets over the last few months protesting the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama stood steadfastly behind the Brotherhood. It did not matter to Obama that the Brotherhood and its leader Mr. Morsi issued constitutional amendments that placed him above judicial oversight . Or that Mr. Morsi decreed immunity for the Islamist-dominated panel drafting a new constitution from any possible court decisions to dissolve his new constitution. Mr. Obama and his administration even waived civil rights requirements in Egypt in order to give $1.5 BILLION to Mr. Morsi and his government. One may ask what are these rights that foreign countries must “pass” in order to receive aid from the United States. Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended in 1984: reads in part, “[n]o assistance may be provided under this part to the government of any country which engages in a consistent pattern of gross violations of internationally recognized human rights.” Since the Muslim Brotherhood “has consistent pattern of gross violations of internationally recognized human rights” they are not entitled to money under our laws. However, no problem for our president Obama; he simply snaps his fingers and !!!POOF!!! that pesky law is waived and the Brotherhood can keep on with their murdering ways while being funded by you and I the American taxpayer.
But now the murdering has started in earnest by the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama stood by this group of thugs before but now, when things are looking bad, Obama says “America cannot determine the future of Egypt, that’s a task for the Egyptian people,” Obama said. “We don’t take sides.” WOW!! Obama says “we don’t take sides” with the factions fighting in Egypt! Really, Mr. President? You sided with the Brotherhood for the last two years!! What is really sickening in this entire episode is Obama doing NOTHING now as the “heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence” is targeting and murdering Coptic Christians!!
Obama is silent, his administration is silent, the old media is silent as the “new” holocaust has started in Egypt! Where is the media? Why are they afraid to show Christians being the victims? Does the victimization of Christians not fit in with their agenda? Our “leaders” and the old media are so pro Muslim that they are afraid to show the Muslim in ANY negative light. For some reason the left has decided to make the Muslim its new poster child and to hell with anyone that gets in their way. Can you imagine the outrage by the old media and by the president if Coptic Christians were burning mosques and murdering 13 year old girls simply because they were walking in the street? To make it worse, a group of by-standers was cheering for the murder of the little girl? I believe if the Coptic Christians were doing this Obama would have sent in troops! But no, Obama’s U.S. ambassador to Egypt, Ms. Patterson is trying to prevent Egyptians from protesting—including the Coptics. The June 18 edition of Sadi al-Balad reports that lawyer Ramses Naggar, the Coptic Church’s legal counsel, said that during Patterson’s meeting with Pope Tawadros (leader of the Coptic Church), she “asked him to urge the Copts not to participate” in the demonstrations against Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama has not cared that the human rights abuses Egypt’s Coptic Christians have been suffering under Muslim Brotherhood rule are significantly worse than the human rights abuses that the average Egyptian suffered under Mubarak.
I am saddened and sickened that our country sits silently while the Muslim Brotherhood is exterminating Christians in Egypt. It is the armed forces fighting to oust the Brotherhood but the Brotherhood shows once again that terrorists are nothing more than bullies and cowards. They are murdering unarmed civilians for nothing more than being a Christian. They are attacking churches while they hold services. This sick group of animals is literally murdering children in the streets! Where is the almighty United Nations that becomes so outraged over the death of a Muslim? Where are all the nations that said “Never Again” in respect to the extermination of a group of people because of their religion? Once again we witness the world bow to the pressure of terrorism. Egyptians wanted democracy and the terrorist Brotherhood gave them terror. 17 Million Egyptians said NO!! Now the world watches while a small group of terrorists holds Egypt hostage and sits by as this group systematically targets and murders Christians. If Obama and the media will not speak out each one of us MUST. As Glenn Beck put it so well, “Put your differences aside. What do you say we work together for the freedom of mankind? What do you say we work together so evil does not sweep the Earth…Please, I’m begging you, stand together. Because the hour grows late. And if you don’t wake up to the hatred soon, it will be too late to stand with anyone.” The clock is ticking…
