U.S. Embassy calls out Muslim Brotherhood for conflicting tweets
Yahoo News ^ | 13 Sep 2012 | Ron Recinto

The U.S. called out the Muslim Brotherhood for apparently tweeting a different set of messages—a kind one in English, and one in Arabic with a different tone—as demonstrators and security forces were battling outside the embassy in Cairo.

The Muslim Brotherhood's English-language Twitter account (@Ikhwanweb) retweeted a message from deputy head Khairat el-Shater saying he was "relieved none of @USEmbassyCairo staff was harmed" and hoped U.S.-Egypt relations "will sustain [the] turbulence of Tuesday's events."

However, according to ahramonline.com, the Brotherhood's Arabic-language Twitter account and its website were praising the protests staged against a U.S.-made film that some Muslims deem insulting to the Prophet Muhammad. The Brotherhood's messages also called for a million-man march on Friday.

That prompted an interesting response from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo: "Thanks. By the way, have you checked out your own Arabic feeds? I hope you know we read those too."

Later the Brotherhood responded, "we understand you're under a lot of stress, but it will be more helpful if you point out exactly the Arabic feed of concern." The exchange in cyberspace underscores the relationship between Egypt and the U.S.

President Barack Obama said in an interview with Spanish-language network Telemundo, "I don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy."

Egypt is a "new government that is trying to find its way," Obama said. The president warned, however, that if the Egyptian government takes actions showing they're not taking responsibility, then it would "be a real big problem."

"On the one hand, you didn't have Americans getting killed ene, but this was the fourth time an embassy was assaulted in Cairo with the Egyptian police doing precious little."....................But Zero is still not sure if they are enemy or ally.

They all keep insisting it was the movie but we all know it was a coordinated event on 9-11. Are these twitters more of the same. The global media are also blaming the movie. This isn’t over...more to come so they must keep the movie story alive for their ignorant little sheepies.

We don’t just back them. The State Department (under the auspices of one of George Soros’ groups) TRAINED the MB before the Arab Spring started, on how to protest effectively. Guess the Arabs got it better than the anarchists in the occupy movement—at least for now.

Interesting how the author of this article is trying to spin Obama's major diplomatic gaffe. I guess Obama is unaware of many of the agreements we have with Egypt on a broad range of issues. Egypt was an ally when Murbarak was in power, In fact the US always used to tout Egypt and Saudi Arabia as our two biggest allies in the region in addtion to Israel.

Obama is an idiot who should not speak with TOTUS being present.

Hello, State Dept: You used to let Yassir Arafat get away with this all the time back when Hillary Clinton was only the First Lady and not your organization's appointed leader.

I think I had an argument of the same maturity level somewhere around the 10th grade. We flipped out hair, rolled our eyes and stomped off in opposite directions. We are so utterly F&*&D if this idiot is still in office on Jan 21.

That’s very close to my first reaction too. Highly sensitive diplomatic communications, carried out on the internet by low-level employees, using 140 characters or less. More evidence of our national insanity.

Conducting foreign policy via Twitter. How pathetic is that?

And now to register my contempt, I’d like to do this interpretive dance.

Lying to the kufir is the way of the muslim. So why do they lie to Obama?

Momar Gaddafi repeatedly referred to him as a fellow muslim with no rebuke from the State Department.

Prosecute Obama and Clinton for the war crime torture, abuse, and murder of a POW named Momar Gaddafi. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton chortled “WE got him!”.

Hey Cairo Embassy! Can you shift your lazy arses over to this one:

"A Muslim Brotherhood rally in Cairo on Friday at the Sunni world’s most prestigious center of learning turned into a call for genocide, with protesters pledging to “one day kill all Jews.”"

http://www.jpost.com/MiddleEast/Article.aspx?id=247078

Worried about the friggin' tone of Twitters. Idiots. THEY WANT TO KILL US ALL!!!

I wonder about the intellectual and emotional state of most people who expose their lives on these 'social media' sites.

To find the government actually gives it any credibility - absurd!

My thinking that I awoke in the Twilight Zone some time back keeps being reinforced.
