    Evening Standard ^ | 29 Nov 2011
    The Muslim Brotherhood was today accused of attempting to rig Egypt's election by handing out gifts and food at polling stations in a desperate attempt to win power. the Islamist party, which is expected to secure a large share of the votes, had a strong presence both inside and outside polling stations. Onlookers claimed some Brotherhood groups were allowed to set up tables with laptop computers in order to show "people how to vote". ...

    Swarms of refugees from Iraq and Syria, along with the rising Muslim Brotherhood, may bring the Arab Spring to Jordan. A growing reality of the nightmare of refugees from Iraq, from the Palestinian Authority (PA) and from Syria swarming across the borders to Jordan, along with the growingly influential Muslim Brotherhood, threaten the kingdom’s stability, researchers report. “Within the Kingdom and across three of its borders, unfolding developments carry far reaching implications for the region in general and Jordan’s stability in particular,” according to Oded Eran of the Institute for National Securities Studies (INSS).

    In the wake of the latest instability everyone has an opinion on the future of Egypt. But the future of Egypt is the past, not the distant past of its pre-Arab culture, but a repetition of the last century. In a region that has never escaped from the past, history is not a road, it is a circle. Travel far enough along it and you come back to where you were. There was once a time when the UK thought that Egypt and Jordan were the best regional prospects, but instead of becoming Arabic accented versions of Albion, today it...

    Saudi journalist Mshari Al-Zaydi wonders in an Al-Arabiya commentary why we don’t dispense with the euphemisms, and call the Arab Spring what it is quickly becoming: the Muslim Brotherhood Spring. That should not have been a surprise, Al-Zaydi notes: Shock is acceptable if one is surprised by something completely unexpected… I recall how many Arab writers at the beginning of this year – the year of the Arab Spring – prophesied that what we were witnessing were uprisings staged by non-political civilians and youth, and claimed that not a single radical or ideological slogan was chanted in Cairo’s Tahrir Square,...

    On a day where we learn that the Obama administration is formally reaching out to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, I have a new report that shows the extent of the Brotherhood's presence right here in America. The Muslim American Society (MAS)--a group whose leaders admit was created by Brotherhood members--is building a very expensive mega-mosque on a quiet residential street in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. Neighbors are up in arms. I was recently on the ground in Brooklyn to talk to them and report on the mosque's Brotherhood connections. Watch my exclusive report by clicking on the viewer below.

Before Muhammad slaughtered, expelled and annihilated the tribes of Medina, that was Jewish land.

U.S. policy and rhetoric should reflect this reality. * Support political integration: American...

    The lack of clarity surrounding the mission ordered by Obama in Libya has triggered criticism from both parties, with Republicans demanding that he clarify its aims and some Democrats insisting that the President was Constitutionally required to seek Congressional authorization before ordering the invasion. Obama has now sent a letter to leaders of Congress defining the mission, in keeping with the War Powers Resolution of 1973 requiring a report to Congress within 48 hours of commencing military action, and it contains rebuttals of both lines of criticism. Obama is taking criticism from the right for failing to articulate “regime change”...

Now, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is forming a political party called Freedom and Justice. Sa`d al-Katatni has been asked to lead the charge. This is a significant development because it marks the first time in the nearly century-long history of the Muslim Brotherhood that it has successfully organized a political party.

    CAIRO - Egypt's long banned Muslim Brotherhood said Tuesday it intends to form a political party once democracy is established, as the country's new military rulers launched a panel of experts to amend the country's constitution enough to allow democratic elections later this year. The panel is to draw up changes at a breakneck pace - within 10 days - to end the monopoly that ousted President Hosni Mubarak's ruling party once held, which it ensured through widespread election rigging. The initial changes may not be enough for many in Egypt calling for the current constitution,

    The Muslim Brotherhood was launched in 1928 to restore a caliphate, a global religious government aimed at fighting the “non-believers” (specifically, Christians, Hindus, and Jews) and at spreading Islam. The group opposed the existence of any secular states in all Muslim societies throughout the Middle East. The Brotherhood killed Egypt’s Prime Minister Mahmud Fahmi Nuqrashi in 1948 and plotted to kill President Gamal Abdel Nasser in the early 1950s. An offshoot group, Islamic Jihad, led by Ayman al-Zawahiri, later Osama bin Laden’s number-two man, assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Al-Sadat in 1981 and tried to kill President Hosni Mubarak in 1995....

But Bouazzi’s desperate act has set off a chain reaction in the Arab world that will either lead to a domino effect of democracy for the Arab peoples, or an Islamist resurrection that has not been seen in centuries. And now with the downfall of Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, it appears that the Ikhwan al-Muslimun (the Muslim...

    Across the political spectrum, the punditry has been sharing its profound analytical wisdom on the Egyptian protests, and resultant political turmoil. Two dominant themes have emerged from these analyses: delusive celebratory predictions about the “democratic” uprising in Egypt from both mainstream (i.e., Left) and conservative pundits, or ahistorical drivel already assigning blame to the Obama administration for the “loss” of Egypt.

    As we follow the unfolding story in Egypt, we are torn between hope and fear -- hope that democracy will gain a toehold and fear that the fundamentalist Moslem Brothers could take control of Egypt. Perhaps you have heard the Moslem Brothers are the oldest and largest radical Islamic group, the grandfather of Hezbollah, Hamas, and al-Qaeda. What you haven't been told is this: the Moslem Brothers were a small, unpopular group of anti-modern fanatics unable to attract members, until they were adopted by Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich beginning in the 1930s.

    <p>Washington - The White House says the Obama administration has had no contact with the Muslim Brotherhood, the deeply conservative Islamic organization that constitutes the biggest organized opposition group in Egypt. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters Monday that before dealing with opposition groups the administration would want assurances that they adhere to the law, that they are non-violent and that they are willing to be part of a democratic process. Gibbs said there would be no contact with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt unless those assurances were offered.</p>

    It appears that NPR came under pressure from a Muslim hate group with ties to HAMAS: the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR petitioned NPR to punish Williams for exercising his First Amendment rights under the U.S. constitution. As it turns out, CAIR and NPR have a pretty cozy relationship, something American taxpayers should be concerned about:

    The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is a religious and political organization. Close to the Muslim World League of the Muslim Brotherhood, it shares the Brotherhood's strategic and cultural vision: that of a universal religious community, the Ummah, based upon the Koran, the Sunna, and the canonical orthodoxy of shari'a. The OIC represents 56 countries and the Palestinian Authority (considered a state), the whole constituting the universal Ummah with a community of more than one billion three to six hundred million Muslims. The OIC has a unique structure among nations and human societies. The Vatican and the various churches...

    In August 1996, al-Qaeda declared war on America, the West, Christians, and Jews. Almost nobody paid attention. Last month, says Barry Rubin, the Muslim Brotherhood, a group with one hundred times more activists than al-Qaeda, issued its declaration of war, endorsing anti-American jihad and much of the rest of al-Qaeda's dogma. The declaration is contained in a speech called, "How Islam Confronts the Oppression and Tyranny." You can read the speech, as translated by MEMRI, here. Among its key points are: Arab and Muslim regimes are betraying their people by failing to confront the Muslim's real enemies, not only Israel...

    On Tuesday, Barack Obama was on his perpetual campaign tour, and he made a stop in Albuquerque for one of his attempts to portray himself as being in touch with the common man. He's conducting a series of what they're calling "backyard conversations," and this stop on Tuesday was one of them. The big story of Obama’s Albuquerque appearance that exploded across the wires was his answer to a woman asking him, "Why are you a Christian?" Okay, first of all, here is a planted question if I've even seen one, and the question itself presupposes an answer, a bit...

    Thursday, September 16, 2010 Report: Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the U.S. government WASHINGTON — The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the U.S. government as part of the movement's drive to promote holy war against the West, a report said. So far, the government was said to have done nothing to stop the Brotherhood infiltration. The report by the Center for Security Policy cited the success of one Brotherhood operative in gaining access to the White House under both Democratic and Republican administrations. "Relying on Brotherhood operatives for 'outreach to the Muslim community,' let alone appointing them to influential government jobs, is...

    Ok, what’s more depressing? The fact that, in the year 2010, a group of Muslims (ie. practitioners of the second largest religion in the world) have to film a video where they seriously and without irony promise not to take over the country or the fact that the video succeeds in making them seem less like terrorists but accidentally makes them look like the aliens from the remake of V. Seriously, if any Fox News personalities start filing reports that Muslims like to hide in their space ships and eat gerbils, I’m going to lose my mind. > Yes, an...
