The U.S. has decided to formally resume contact with Egypts Muslim Brotherhood group - which does not recognize Israel in a move that could further alienate some Jewish voters already skeptical of President Barack Obama, it was reported.
One senior U.S. official said the Brotherhoods rise in political prominence after the forced departure of former President Hosni Mubarak earlier this year makes the American contact necessary. The political landscape in Egypt has changed, and is changing It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency, said the official, who confirmed the news to Reuters on condition of anonymity.
The Muslim Brotherhood - founded in 1928 to promote a conservative version of Islam in politics, culture and society has previously had some communication with the U.S. through Brotherhood Members of Parliament who had been technically elected as independents. U.S. diplomats had been instructed only to deal with Brotherhood members in their role as Members of Parliament.
The decision to resume contact with the Muslim Brotherhood group may worry members of the Jewish community and Israeli officials, Reuters reported.
POLITICOs Ben Smith wrote yesterday about the increasing anxiety of center-left Jewish Democrats who are losing faith in Obama, most recently because of the speech in which he called for the countrys 1967 borders to be the basis for peace talks, with land swaps.
Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Mohamed Saad el-Katatni told Reuters that no American contact with the group has yet been made, but he added: We welcome such relationships with everyone because those relations will lead to clarifying our vision.

I don’t understand why they support Democrats and continue to do so. And they give big donations to the Dems too.
The democratic jews are like the JFK Democratic catholics.It took them awhile to catch on that the dems are worse than the pubs. The JFK catholics just woke up in the last couple of POTUS elections. I don’t know if the democratic jewish vote will ever wake up; as the so called extreme right scare them.
“It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency,”
I guess that could have been said about the nazis, too...

Sure, it will alienate a small percentage of Jewish voters. A very small, insignificant percentage. For most, however, the act of the US formally recognizing a racist, terrorist, Jew hating group that has vowed the total destruction of Israel will not even cause a blip to register on the radar of most American Jews.
At last .... a group of gun-clinging, religious-book-lovers with which Obama feels he can associate.

also, this surprises me, since i read that Obama MET with 2 Muslim Brotherhood members, 2 months BEFORE they took over Egypt:
“Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Mohamed Saad el-Katatni told Reuters that no American contact with the group has yet been made,”
The Muslim Brotherhood, and Islam itself, needs to be banned. ...their plan ALREADY IN STAGE 3:
THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

I love how they are just going all out. Does it get any clearer than this?! He’s just out to destroy the United States and our allies. Right in our faces. Who will call him out on it?

We conservative christians and returning troops are considered low level domestic terrorists but the Muslim Brotherhood is A OK. Whats wrong with this picture?
Comes as no surprise.
When you have a WH that is now “reaching out” to the Taliban, why would they not support the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt too?

He’s one of the few who get it. View this short video where he states most eloquently that Muslims- ALL Muslims are the enemy.

Is there any doubt really on who Obama is?
A lot of Catholics went for Reagan and were among his most dependable supporters.
