Obama, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood Ally Code Pink Directly Involved With Cairo Protests
Sunday, Janaury 30, 2011 | Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King

Posted on 02/01/2011 7:11:58 AM PST by kristinn


Tighe Barry, left, and Medea Benjamin of Code Pink protest in Washington, D.C.

On the heels of a Big Government article asking whether the Muslim Brotherhood and other anti-Mubarak organizations in Egypt have been learning their tactics from Obama allies Bill Ayers and Code Pink (as a result of connections made in Egypt one year ago) comes news that Code Pink is in Cairo and is involved in the protests.

An audio file of a phone call by leftist activist David Swanson that day to Code Pink agitator Tighe Barry in Cairo was posted late Friday.

Barry, in Egypt once again coordinating Code Pink’s latest group trip to Hamas-controlled Gaza, spoke with Swanson about his involvement in the protests.

Barry said he’s been in Egypt all week and has been out protesting between arranging permits from the Egyptian government to travel to the Gaza border crossing at Rafah.

Barry said the government had given him a permit to travel to Rafah and he hoped to depart on Sunday, but noted that may not happen given the continuing protests. There are reports of rioting and killings of Egyptian police in Rafah, as well as reports of the border crossing security being compromised.

Barry said he was detained on Friday for about an hour by Egyptian police while participating in a protest at Tahrir Square (Liberation Square) in Cairo. Barry said a camera was taken from him by police even though he waved a press pass and his American passport at them.

Pretending to be a journalist, either with phony or stolen credentials, is a trick Code Pink uses to fool security at events. It appears the Egyptians weren’t fooled by Barry’s act.

Barry spoke of particpating in “peacefully” breaking through a police line on Tuesday. He said on Friday the tactics changed to violent attempts to break police lines.

Barry made excuses for the violence of the Egyptian protesters, saying the Egyptians told him violence by the police made peaceful protest impossible.

Barry is smart enough to not speak on an open phone line about what he has been doing behind the scenes, but he does say that he has “lots of Egyptian friends” and that he hid out at one of those friend’s flat after being turned loose by the police Friday. He does not mention who else from Code Pink is with him in Cairo.

Barry downplayed the involvement of the Muslim Brotherhood, saying the protests have not been “Muslim” nor “anti-American.” The Muslim Brotherhood is banned in Egypt, so openly working with the Code Pink ally would likely be grounds for getting thrown out of Egypt.

Code Pink solicited participation in this year’s Hamas-aid on its Web site, charging $1000 for a week in Gaza, air fare and hotel in Cairo not included:

As we approach the two year anniversary of the Israeli invasion of Gaza, join CODEPINK on a delegation to examine how the people of Gaza have fared in the past two years and how the restrictions on trade and travel continue to impact their lives. We will meet with UN representatives, NGOs, students, government officials, human rights monitors and businesspeople.

We will enter Gaza via the Egyptian crossing at Rafah, departing from Cairo the morning of January 30 and returning to Cairo the evening of February 6. Payment of $1,000 includes transportation from Cairo to Gaza and within Gaza, program, translation, 2 meals/day, Gaza accommodations, donations to local organizations. Payment does not include flight to and from Cairo, Cairo hotel or visa fees.

On a separate page, Code Pink describes its efforts as providing “space for Obama” to play a “positive role” in Gaza:

On a recent trip to Gaza, the glimmer of hope we found among people in Gaza was the Obama administration. Many were upset that Obama did not speak out during the invasion and that peace envoy George Mitchell, on his first trip to the Middle East, did not visit Gaza or even Syria. But they felt that Mitchell was a good choice and Obama, if given the space by the American people, could play a positive role. Who can provide that space for Obama? Who can respond to the call for justice from the Palestinian people? Who can counter AIPAC, the powerful lobby that supports Israeli aggression? An organized, mobilized, coordinated grassroots movement is the critical counterforce— and we need you to stand with us and do your part for peace!

In fact, Code Pink has acted as a go-between with Hamas and Obama, delivering a letter from Hamas to Obama and was received at the White House after a trip to Gaza.

This trip by Code Pink marks at least their fifth to Egypt and Gaza in the past two years. Such frequent trips build networks and the opportunity for teaching tactics.

Code Pink has traveled the world, working with terrorist groups and anti-American governments to undermine America, free Iraq, Israel, Egypt and other governments allied against Code Pink’s Marxist, jihadist friends.

Code Pink does not protest Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when they visit in Tehran as his guest, nor do they protest Hugo Chavez when they visit him in Caracas. And Code Pink certainly doesn’t protest Hamas when they deliver aid to their terrorist ally in Gaza.

Barry is a real piece of work. He is actively working for the overthrow of the American political system yet he waves a US passport to keep himself out of trouble.

The sight of them being hustled off the streets in some faraway muslim land, because they’re no longer useful, will be a wonderful one indeed.

Please keep Medea Benjamin in Egypt, please? We’ll pay you. Her face tends to break cameras so you may want to invest in camera stocks.

"Notice how the left loves the death cult?"

Yes. Who and what is the champion of death in this universe? And does the leader of death have minions?

Ephesians 6:10-13

"Mentally deranged" is just the welcome mat...

You must have a lot of equally evil and powerful friends if you are going to bring an end to all of western civilization. That's why the marxists and the islamists are working together. They will fight over the leftovers after armageddon. That's their plan, anyway.

See tagline.

Or on the other hand—maybe these reprobates have believed the lie that they have power and what they don’t know (because of the liar) is that they will be defeated.
Tools.

Code Pink will be sadly mistaken if they think they will have a place at the table of domination. They will end up in burqas and cooking coucous. But, maybe burqas would be an improvement to Medea and crew.

Code Pink? Adam Kokesh’s old pals? And I’m still waiting for either Judge Napolitano or Ron Paul to denounce Kokesh for that unholy alliance .... but all I hear is the sound of one-legged crickets.

Totally agree. But I think they will end up dead. They are useful idiots to the Islamists. They will open their big mouths and scream when they don't get their way. They will be stoned or shot.

Agreed. Because of their mental make up, it will be impossible to shut them up except to stone them. I am sure they have been warned but take no heed. Anyone in their right mind and can read, knows what muslims do to disobedient women. Up to their shoulders in the sand then stoned (and not in the “stoned” most of them are used to).

Agreed. But, another motive may be to get with a group of hairy neanderthal men that may over look their hairy neanderthal selves because for sure no American man can find them anywhere attractive. Maybe, just maybe.
Seriously, these women are total fools and have long been a danger to America. Whatever happen to the word treason and the consequences thereof? Oh, that's right, none of that applies to progressives, leftists, communists and traitors because they make the law up as they go along. Time we addressed the problem and took care of it.

The posted article about Code Pink's aiding and abetting Islamist extremist groups throughout the Middle East underscores once more what David Horowitz describes as the "Unholy Alliance" between the Left and radical Islam that knows no international boundaries.
