Posted on 02/26/2012 1:57:56 PM PST by Texas Fossil
Last June, President Barack Obama began to openly court Egypt's anti- Semitic Muslim Brotherhood. Yet, with few exceptions, American Jewish leaders are keeping quiet. The Brotherhood's spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusef Qaradawi, makes things perfectly clear: "Oh Allah, take the Jews, the treacherous aggressors. Oh Allah, take this profligate, cunning, arrogant band of people. ... Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one."
The sheikh who - by the way - was a trustee and fundraiser for the Boston mega-mosque - explains the Jews to his followers around the world thusly: "Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the Jews people who would punish them for their corruption. ... The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. ... even though they exaggerated this issue. ... This was divine punishment for them. ... Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers."
Obama sees the situation more broadly: Not to engage the Brotherhood, a senior administration official explained, "would be impractical." Besides, he said, since winning the parliamentary election, the MB has been "very specific about conveying a moderate message - on regional security and domestic issues, and economic issues."
It's been a persistent fantasy of Western diplomats that by governing - or even participating in elections - radicals are transformed into pragmatists. Facts show otherwise: Radicals and Islamists across the Middle East, as they vote or govern, have not lessened their virulent hatred of Jews, their antipathy toward democracy, or their horrid treatment of Christians, women and gays. As Professor Barry Rubin points out: The radical nationalist PLO - given money, guns and power - has not moderated; Hamas won an election in Gaza, yet still wants to commit genocide on Jews; Hezbollah won an election in Lebanon and has not moderated; Turkey's Islamists, now in power, adopted an anti-Western foreign policy that backs radical Islamists; and Egypt itself seems set to violently return its Christian minority to pre-colonial "dhimmi" serfdom. "Where," Rubin asks, "is the renunciation of past extremism, the reinterpretation of Islamic texts to justify a totally different worldview?"
The Muslim Brotherhood is unlikely to moderate because its core doctrine is Islamic supremacy: Democracy is not in its DNA. Sayyid Qutb, the Brotherhood's chief ideologue, saw the collapse of the world's last Muslim empire in Turkey. He taught that Islamic civilization had crumbled because it had strayed from its original path. His solution - and the foundational principle of the MB - is a return to the flawless, unspoiled beliefs and practices of the Prophet Muhammad.
Since its founding in 1928, the Brotherhood has spawned practically all modern jihadist movements. Hamas is its branch in Palestine. The Muslim American Society- the organization that runs the Boston mega mosque - is said by federal authorities to be its front group in the United States. The Brotherhood's spiritual guide,
Qaradawi, says it must destroy Israel and then conquer Europe and America. The Brotherhood's ultimate goal is to impose Sharia law worldwide and create a global caliphate.
The Brotherhood is not "only" out to destroy Israel: It has from the start expressed genocidal intention toward the Jewish people. During World War II, the organization distributed Nazi-funded Arabic copies of "Mein Kampf " ("My Struggle" is uncannily close to "my jihad") throughout Palestine to inspire the Arab troops to slaughter Jewish immigrants.
When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton first defended working with the MB, she promised that in any contacts with them, "we will continue to emphasize the importance of and support for democratic principles and especially a commitment to non-violence, respect for minority rights, and the full inclusion of women in any democracy."
Clinton's support for these principles went unnoticed in Cairo on Oct. 9, 2011, when Christians were massacred by Islamist thugs. And it goes unnoticed every time Qaradawi calls for killing the world's Jews. Instead the Administration has recruited this would-be genocidaire to mediate its negotiations with the Taliban.
Since the Obama Administration seems intent on working with today's Hitlerites, it's not surprising that US aid continues to flow to the Palestinian Authority after the PA announced a unity deal with the Brotherhood's Hamas branch. Preventing American dollars from funding Hamas is clearly a national Jewish issue. Yet so far, the only national Jewish organization that has challenged Obama on this betrayal of the Jewish people has been the valiant Zionist Organization of America.
But Obama's outreach to Muslim anti- Semites is no less an issue right here, for Boston's Jews.
It is Massachusetts Senator John Kerry who has become the point man for the president's push to build ties with the MB in Egypt. In December, Kerry met with the top officials of the Brotherhood's political party. The senator said he "welcomed the results of Egypt's first democratic elections," which gave 40 percent of the vote to the MB and another 24 percent to the even-more radical Salafi al-Nour Party. Then he urged the International Monetary Fund to fund the MB. US dollars ($55 billion) account for nearly 20 percent of IMF's worth. So now, a Massachusetts senator is helping to send US dollars to people religiously committed to killing Jews - yet I am not aware of any Jewish leader here lodging a protest against him.
And of course, there is that still simmering issue of the Saudi-funded mega-mosque in Roxbury, built in part with funds raised by Qaradawi, who - because he was banned from setting foot in America by President Bill Clinton - had to raise money for the mosque among Boston Muslims via video broadcast to a gathering at the downtown Sheraton. Since then, thinking about his own end time, he's expressed this delightful wish: "I will shoot Allah's enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus I will seal my life with martyrdom." Here too, there is silence from our local Jewish community and religious leaders.

We must all be aware of constant attempts to emplace creeping Sharia in the U.S.
Must not be allowed.
Time to clean house of these traitors.
They are putting 19 of our people on trial and now we find out about this back channel BS with these asswipes. I know it’s a silly question, but where is the media? Even if it’s only Fox.
American Jewish Leaders will vote Democrat.
They always do.
WE are the vanguard.
The muslim bastard spent many years in the beautiful tropical paradise of Hawaii and if you've ever seen and known the interpretation of the Hula ...
only to be upstaged by a muslim prayer more beautiful in his ears than paradise on earth?
IMPEACH THE NON AMERICAN !
THERE IS NO EMPIRICLE EVIDENCE OBAMA IS AMERICAN.
Impeach Obama? Yes, but that is only the beginning. We must identify, charge, try, convict, sentence, punish all who have enabled him.
There is no other way to save the nation than to removed this Leftist Traitorous regime in total. All elements must be forever removed from power.
Anti-semites are Satan’s children. Jews and Christians have got to unite to save Isreal and the US. Of course, God will have his way in the end.
Yes, both Catholic (many exceptions) and Jews have a history of voting for Democrats.
I see some evidence that block voting is beginning to be reduced.
After Obozo directly declaring war on all Christians, Jews and some other faiths, it should be clear what the consequences now are. (1st Amendment Freedom of Religion)

Of course he’s not an American...plenty of evidence he was born in Mombassa; as a child he had Indonesian citizenship, and was raised Muslim.
In college, he was admitted to Occidental as a foreign student, he lived in the foreign dorm, he became a communist...all of this information is easily available...the press is covering for him.
Never vetted...we are fed lies in his ghosted autobiography.
The “investigative” media is a joke.
When Bill Ayers (who Barry didn’t know) was writing Barry’s AUTOBIOGRAPHY Audacity of Dope, he wrote that he would stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
Obozo is completely surrounded by Hard Leftist of all flavors and Muslims. They complement each other, both are totalitarian, Anti-American and both server the father of lies.
Ayers- he is the man who said they would have to eliminate those Americans who would not be re-educated. (capitalist, freedom lovers) When asked how many he said possibly 25 million in the U.S.
He said that in the 60’s. If you still believer that Bill Ayers, bring it one. We shall see who wins.
Kindly add Pelosi and Reed to your excellent list.
I dont understand why they never use the term anti-jewish, and instead opt for the term anti-semitic. Semites are biblically the descendants of Noahs 3 sons. One of those, Shem, is the one who is the forefather of Jews and Arabs.
So arabs are semites therefore it is nonsensical to use the term for arabs, anti-jewish is more apt. Especially since not all Jewish people currently are semitic. In anycase everyone on this site was aware of the rising muslim brotherhood threat regarding egypt and other “arab spring” so it doesnt make sense that the POTUS and his cabinet would not be..
Agreed, there is no question they should be added.
I spent the last week in Tel Aviv. The prevailing question repeatedly posed to me is, “Why is this happening in America?” My typical response is that we need to throw out the current radical administration in the next election, and we will once again stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our Israeli friends.
I am ready.
Ready to vote the Bastards out.
Ready to clean the scum out of government at all levels.
Ready to do whatever it take to stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel.
Count me in.
