Skip to comments.Arab world: Has the penny finally dropped?
Posted on 05/02/2014 8:09:30 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Since the start of the ill-named Arab Spring, the Muslim Brotherhood has been very much in the news.
Coming to power through democratic elections in Egypt and Tunisia, they were toppled within a short time by the people, who discovered their true intentions.
There were some in the West but not all who saw the light as well.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered a comprehensive review of the movement,... its activities in Britain and its impact on the countrys interests. The decision was made because the Brotherhood is allegedly behind terrorist operations in Egypt, and because some of its members have fled to England, where they keep on directing terror operations.
Egypt and Saudi Arabia have already branded the Brotherhood a terrorist organization. Curiously, Washington, which staunchly supported Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi to the end even though massive demonstrations opposed his regime, is still favoring his group, to the extent that it punished Egypt for its coup by withholding part of its military assistance. A State Department official told a Kuwaiti paper a few weeks ago that the Muslim Brotherhood was not a threat to America.
This is not a view shared by most Arab countries...
Today, only Qatar is steadfastly refusing to turn against the Brotherhood.
The organization is solidly entrenched in the small country and pulls the strings behind the Al Jazeera channel, which has been vocally supporting sister movements trying to rise to power following the Arab Spring.
Qatar feels secure because of the support of the United States, which maintains key military bases in the country and still backs the Brotherhood.
Cameron is the first Western leader to address the problem.
As for Washington, it has yet to comment on the British move.

Because they're waiting for the Muslim Brotherhood to tell them what to say.
The Muslim Brotherhood is already in the White House!
Youssef: Disastrous MidEast policy implies WH, Muslim Brotherhood in lockstep Wednesday, August 21, 2013 9:09:13 AM · 21 of 21
An Egyptian magazine claims that the six American Islamist activists (pictured above) who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy.
The Dec. 22 story published in Egypts Rose El-Youssef magazine (read an IPT translation here) suggests the six turned the White House from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The story is largely unsourced, but its publication is considered significant in raising the issue to Egyptian readers.
This is all finally coming to light but its too late. The damage has already been done. The six named people include: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obamas Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, which the magazine identifies as a Brotherhood subsidiary. It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the file of Islamic states in the White House and that he provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.
Elibiary, who has endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb, may have leaked secret materials contained in Department of Homeland Security databases, according to the magazine. He, however, denies having any connection with the Brotherhood.
Elibiary also played a role in defining the Obama administrations counterterrorism strategy, and the magazine asserts that Elibiary wrote the speech Obama gave when he told former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave power but offers no source or evidence for the claim.
According to Rose El-Youssef, Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that it says comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi. He also participated in the organizing committee of the Critical Islamic Reflection along with important figures of the American Muslim Brotherhood such as Jamal Barzinji,Hisham al-Talib and Yaqub Mirza.
Regarding al-Marayati, who has been among the most influential Muslim American leaders in recent years, the magazine draws connections between MPAC in the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure.
Magid heads ISNA, which was founded by Brotherhood members, was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security. The magazine says that has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI.
Rose El-Youssef says Patel maintains a close relationship with Hani Ramadan, the grandson of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, which it identifies as a large Brotherhood organization. source IPT

Good information. Too bad no one seems to care.
Obama’s pet mediots have done a great job. Anything said about the Muslim Brotherhood will now be called racism.
Obama administration, a day late and 17 trillion dollars short.
Yes, in 2011 The WH said that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is “largely secular.”
BUT...two years later Kerry said that the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt represented the restoration of Democracy in Egypt. What?!
There was no Democracy before the Muslim Brotherhoods’ ouster, nor when the Muslim Brotherhood ruled with a iron/titanium fist.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered a comprehensive review of the movement... because the Brotherhood is allegedly behind terrorist operations in Egypt, and because some of its members have fled to England, where they keep on directing terror operations. Egypt and Saudi Arabia have already branded the Brotherhood a terrorist organization. [Zero and his cadre] staunchly supported Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi to the end... is still favoring his group... A State Department official told a Kuwaiti paper a few weeks ago that the Muslim Brotherhood was not a threat to America... only Qatar is steadfastly refusing to turn against the Brotherhood. The organization is solidly entrenched in the small country and pulls the strings behind the [Al Gore] Al Jazeera channel... Qatar feels secure because of the support of the United States...
The only question is whether it is sitting at the oval office desk or kneeling under it. Maybe it is BO who is kneeling under it.
