Does Obama Support the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt?
Time Magazine ^ | Aug 23, 2013 | Jay Newton-Small

Posted on 08/23/2013 7:35:59 PM PDT by Innovative

Yet Egyptians remain convinced that President Obama is backing the Muslim Brotherhood and deposed President Mohamed Morsi. At a lunch at the Egyptian Ambassador’s residence on Thursday, Dr. Mohamed Abou El-Ghar, head of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party, bluntly warned a small gathering of journalists and policy wonks that he fears, “America is losing Egypt…There is a very strong perception that they are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and they are against other parties,” he said.

...

The latest evidence of Obama’s purported proclivity towards the Brotherhood came in Thursday’s State Department briefing, which has made headlines in Egypt. In it, spokesman Jen Psaki says that the choice to detain of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is an “internal Egyptian legal matter,” but in the next breath calls for the release of Morsi, who is accused of many serious crimes. Egyptians took this as further evidence that America is intervening on behalf of the Brotherhood still.

Following the Benghazi attack, Obama went to the UN and announced, “The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” and that “Intolerance is a form of violence.”

. Let us not forget that in the “Audacity of Hope,” Obama avowed, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

I think that pretty well....covers it!

If your official father was a Muslim, and your step father was a devout Muslim, and you attended Muslim religious school (madrassa) in Indonesia, why would you not back Muslim Brotherhood people?

2009 - Obama: A ‘cosmic wager’ on the Muslim Brotherhood

By David Ignatius, February 15, 2012 (referencing Obama’s early support of the banned Muslim Brotherhood in June 2009)

President Obama’s outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood began three years ago in his famous June 2009 speech in Cairo.

Ten members of the Brotherhood were invited to listen to the address, and they heard a passage crafted especially for them:

“America respects the right of all peaceful and law-abiding voices to be heard around the world, even if we disagree with them. And we will welcome all elected, peaceful governments — provided they govern with respect for all their people.”...

The Obama administration has made what might be described as a “cosmic wager” on the Muslim Brotherhood’s peaceful intentions.

***By courting them in 2009, the United States helped legitimize their political aspirations; by refusing to come to Mubarak’s rescue during the Tahrir Square protests a year ago, the United States all but guaranteed that the Brotherhood would emerge as a dominant political force in a new Egypt.***

How is Obama, on his own with the help of McCain and Grahammy, giving arms to a rebel faction? This is treason. Is it not? When and where do the marches start?

If your father is a muslim, you’re a muslim until you denounce the faith. Then you can be marked for death. He has done neither. He is a muslim from an extremist muslim father. But blind people in love can’t see it and even if they do see it, they won’t admit it. I still can’t find a democrat who will admit they voted for Carter and came to regret it.

The connection comes thru M Robinson O. Who baby sat with the children of J Robinson Jackson JJs half bro Noah R is doing life for his connection with said gang. They were all close before his arrest.
MO wore the gang colors to one of the inauguration events. What does that tell you?
