Former US President Carter ‘concerned’ over Egypt
Associated Press ^ | May 17, 2014 11:23 AM EDT | Mariam Rizk

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is warning Egypt that its transition to democracy after years of political turmoil is faltering ahead of presidential elections later this month.

His Carter Center won’t be sending observers for Egypt’s May 26-27 election, which many believe retired Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi handily will win following the overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi last year that he led. However, the center will be sending a small team of experts.

In a statement Friday, the center warned that “Egypt’s political transition has stalled and stands on the precipice of total reversal.” The center said Morsi’s overthrow deepened the political unrest in the country. The military-backed interim government has declared Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group a terrorist organization, as hundreds of its followers have been killed and thousands have been arrested. …

I cannot put this down to Carter’s age. His open support for the MB is just pure evil.

Carter is just disappointed another Islamic regime isn’t being established.

His gift of Iran is about to become nuclear tipped soon.

Carter only sends his observers to elections where Marxists and Islamists must cheat to win. He then certifies the election as fair and the results completely honest.

I am so happy that Jimmah al-Cahtah is a former president and will be happy at noon on January 20, 2017 when Barak Husseian Obama joins him as a former president.

Change the first name to “Yakub” (since James is cognate with Jacob, “Yakub” in Arabic) and that’ll be apropos.

The bigger question is why Jews can’t see which Party hates them and Israel? Obama could nuke Israel and they would still vote 95% Democrat.

Pray America wakes up

We had Libya all ewn up till these chuckleheads got power.

Ghaddafi was being a very good boy.
Now what do we have? A dead Ambassador? and questions?
Tunisia is also in tumult.
All thanks to these chuckleheads.

In the mean time Obama is allowing Putin tun run in the open, rebuilding the old soviet empire and encroaching on Europe, and who’s Obama spying on?

US and Angela Merkel

Dear Mr. Carter,
Your useful time on Earth has passed. You can rest now.

Permanently.

In a wooden box.
Love,

NOW Jimmy Carter is “concerned” about Egypt....

After it looks like the Muslim Brotherhood is being kicked out of town? So you realize, Jimmy, just how much this undercuts al-Qaeda?

Makes one wonder how much money the Muslim Brotherhood have given Carter, the Clintoons, Holder and Herr Obozo.

Youssef: Disastrous MidEast policy implies WH, Muslim Brotherhood in ‘lockstep’ Wednesday, August 21, 2013 9:09:13 AM · 21 of 21

An Egyptian magazine claims that the six American Islamist activists (pictured above) who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy.

The Dec. 22 story published in Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine (read an IPT translation here) suggests the six turned the White House “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The story is largely unsourced, but its publication is considered significant in raising the issue to Egyptian readers.

Egyptian-magazine-claims-obama-administration-filled-wth-muslim-brotherhood-appointees-2013

This is all finally coming to light…but its too late. The damage has already been done. The six named people include: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, which the magazine identifies as a Brotherhood “subsidiary.” It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the “file of Islamic states” in the White House and that he provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.

Elibiary, who has endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb, may have leaked secret materials contained in Department of Homeland Security databases, according to the magazine. He, however, denies having any connection with the Brotherhood.

Elibiary also played a role in defining the Obama administration’s counterterrorism strategy, and the magazine asserts that Elibiary wrote the speech Obama gave when he told former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave power but offers no source or evidence for the claim.

According to Rose El-Youssef, Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that it says comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi. He also participated in the organizing committee of the Critical Islamic Reflection along with important figures of the American Muslim Brotherhood such as Jamal Barzinji,Hisham al-Talib and Yaqub Mirza.

Regarding al-Marayati, who has been among the most influential Muslim American leaders in recent years, the magazine draws connections between MPAC in the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure.

Magid heads ISNA, which was founded by Brotherhood members, was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security. The magazine says that has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI.

Rose El-Youssef says Patel maintains a close relationship with Hani Ramadan, the grandson of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, which it identifies as “a large Brotherhood organization.” source – IPT

One of my proudest political moments is voting for the dull, clueless Gerald Ford over the revolting liar and phony, Jimmuh Carter. I was a teenager then, but Ayn Rand said that Carter was motivated by powerlust so I didn't vote for him; however, when Ayn Rand spoke against Ronald Reagan, I did not listen to her and voted for the Gipper in 1980.

My political instincts have always been sound.

The only news I look forward to regarding Carter is a certain future event, and the one-deep throngs lining the streets, almost all of them paid union thugs.
