U.S. recognizes Muslim Brotherhood
Politico ^ | June 30, 2011 | Tim Mack

The U.S. has decided to formally resume contact with Egypt’s 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 Brotherhood’s 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.

POLITICO’s 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 country’s 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.”

“The U.S. has decided to formally resume contact with Egypt’s 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”

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.

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.

Someone must have been extremely close to exposing the moslem brotherhood people inside the zer0 administration. It is well known hillary’s huma (weiner’s wife) has ties through her mother and brother to moslem brotherhood. Since there is one, one would have to ascertain there is more than one, in the zer0 administration. Cover for the moslem brotherhood already in positions to view state secrets, would be my best guess. Cover also for those who were supposeds to keep security checks up to date.

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:

Amen...I’ll help pread the word.

Muslim Brotherhood—a group of gun-clinging, religious-book-lovers with which Obama feels he can associate.

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.
