If Islamism is OK for Egypt, why not America?
The Obama administration is doing its utmost to promote the fortunes of the Islamist parties in Egypt. A State Department official declared that with the rise of these radical groups after the Arab Spring, people who once might have gone into al Qaeda see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism. They see this as a victory. The problem is, so do the terrorists.
Last year, the White House began peddling the line that the uprisings in the Middle East were a repudiation of the al Qaeda model of seeking change through terrorism. The argument was that while America opposed violent extremism, the rise of nonviolent radical movements was just fine, and even commendable. Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri quickly dismissed this claim, saying that from the terrorists point of view, it didnt matter whether an Islamist victory came through violence or not. The means were unimportant except as they related to the end state: the imposition of hard-line Shariah-based laws and policies.
From Zawahris point of view, it makes no difference whether the caliphate is born of the ballot, bomb or bullet. The important thing is the victory of Islamism, which the White House also seems to endorse.
The notion that there is a legitimate form of Islamism reflects a serious intellectual failing on the part of the Obama administration. President Obama seems to believe the Islamists are legitimized simply by participating in the political process...

Does this surprise ANYONE around here!?!?!?!
Yes, it was absolutely clear from the start that he was embracing the cause of Islam in Libya and Egypt, and the mainstream press cheered him on.
And even though the Libyan war was illegal and unconstitutional, the Republicans did absolutely nothing to stop it. Boner wrote a letter to Obama, which he ignored, and that was it.
And of course McCain and his pals cheered him on. In this case, I doubt if Jackass McCain understood what he was cheering for.
More recently, Obama gave the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt a billion and a half dollars in aid, without the consent of congress, and again the response was feeble.
It’s good to see the Washington Times print an editorial like this, but you can bet that the NY Times and the Washington ComPost will certainly ignore it.
It sure shouldn’t after the last three plus years.
Well said and I’m sure McCain didn’t understand what he was cheering for, he’s nuts.
The Slimes and the ComPost will most definitely ignore it.
Let’s first read thew complete Book on Sharia Law.
If Obama thinks this is good for the USA God Help Us.
This is the worst example of a Religion I have ever seen.

Dammit! An excerpt from the Wash Times. I still haven’t shaken off all the malware.
Thanks, that’s very telling especially since Israel is our closest ally in the ME.
How I wish we could post the entire story at the WT.
I know. [sigh]. It’s the Moonies. I bet you $$$.
There is NO legitimate Islam as Islam is an enemy of freedom.
Amen to that!
The Amish. Always, cherchez les Amish. Byword.
corrected it. The Sauds are no allies of ours...
