    The first reports said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Egypt to convince the powerful military to hand the reins of power to "civilians," apparently meaning the Muslim Brotherhood. Before she could make her case, Field Marshall Mohamed Hussein Tantawi announced the army would prevent Egypt from falling under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood (which he did not name but referred to as a "certain group)." Hillary, disadvantaged by the weight of her pantsuit, but still resilient in that uniquely American way, quickly tread the murky waters of politicking and offered bribes. Some influential Christian leaders boycotted her...
  • Egypt Attaches Strings to Peace with Israel - Clinton silent as Egyptian officials

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was silent as a senior Egyptian official stated during a joint press conference that his country would only uphold its peace treaty with Israel if the Jewish state returns to its 1967 borders and gives Palestinians control over portions of Jerusalem. During a press conference Saturday in Cairo, Clinton and Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr were asked about Egypt’s longstanding peace treaty with Israel, which has come under scrutiny in recent months by officials of Egypt’s new, Muslim Brotherhood-led government. “Egypt’s understanding of peace is that it should be comprehensive, exactly as stipulated in...

    JERUSALEM — With Egypt unsettled, Syria in crisis and Iran’s nuclear program raising widespread fears, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton conferred here Monday with Israeli leaders to reaffirm U.S. ties and allay anxieties about the rapidly changing dynamics in the region. In her first trip to Israel since 2010 and likely her last as secretary of state, Clinton met Monday morning with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and President Shimon Peres for talks on a range of issues, the most pressing of which was probably Iran’s nuclear program. But the talks also touched on the dangers of an escalating...

    The MPs' session was brief – it lasted just five minutes – but it pushed Egypt deeper into a potential power struggle between new President Mohammed Morsi and the powerful military, which has vowed to uphold the judicial ruling that led to parliament being dissolved. The crisis atmosphere has grown steadily since Morsi issued an order on Sunday to reconvene the 508-seat legislature. His executive order said it was revoking the military's June 15 order to disband the chamber based on the previous ruling by the Supreme Constitutional Court. The court said a third of the chamber's members were elected...

    By Martin Sherman Islam has always been a part of America’s story. The truth is that America and Islam are not exclusive. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles – principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings – Barack Obama, Cairo, June 4, 2009 ‘Brotherhood’ invited to Obama’s speech by US….The administration insisted that at least 10 members of the Muslim Brotherhood… be allowed to attend his speech in Cairo – The Atlantic, June 3, 2009 Let me begin with two apparently contradictory statements.

    Is this the democratic Muslim world President Obama called for in his much-publicized Cairo address three years ago? Chaos there and a US impotent to do much of anything about it? With the election this past weekend of Mohammed Morsi as president, Cairo became capital to an Egypt under the banner of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood. Obama’s 2009 speech, recall, was a mishmash of moral equivalence—apologizing for US intervention in the Middle East; comparing the CIA’s alleged role in the 1953 Iranian coup to the 1979 Iranian Revolution’s hostage-taking and subsequent state-sponsorship of terror. Most reasonable people were at least...

    Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood told supporters last month, “Jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal.” Lovely. Voice of Russia reported, via ROP: Egypt’s Constitution should be based on the Koran and Sharia law, presidential candidate from the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist movement Mohamed Morsi said. “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal,” Morsi said in his election speech before Cairo University students on Saturday night. Today Egypt is close as never...

    “The U.S. President, Barack Obama, has concealed the true leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and these days it is showing no shame with its undue pressure on the junta to leave it that way to the Muslim Brotherhood.” To speak thus is a liberal parties close to the Egyptian activist who organized the first demonstrations in Egypt believe that they can transform their country into a democracy. The activist, who requested anonymity for fear of reprisals, continues the conversation with a group of Western journalists flocked to an impromptu press conference just off Tahrir Square where Salafis are gathering to...

    White House spokesman Jay Carney issued the following statement in response to the Egyptian presidential election: "The United States congratulates Dr. Mohamed Morsi on his victory in Egypt’s Presidential election, and we congratulate the Egyptian people for this milestone in their transition to democracy. "We look forward to working together with President-elect Morsi and the government he forms, on the basis of mutual respect, to advance the many shared interests between Egypt and the United States. We believe that it is important for President-elect Morsi to take steps at this historic time to advance national unity by reaching out to...

    It was encouraging to see five sitting US Congressmen – led by Rep. Michele Bachmann – send a letter to the Office of the Inspector General at the State Department recently; it made reference to the familial relationships Huma Abedin – Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff and closest advisor – has to the Muslim Brotherhood. Abedin has much fewer than six degrees of separation (1 or 2 depending on your interpretation) from Egypt’s newly elected Muslim Brotherhood president – Mohammed Mursi. One year ago, when Walid discovered the names of 63 leaders who make up the Muslim Sisterhood –...

    The White House does not want you to remember some facts today. Unfortunately for them, the internet never forgets. In February of last year, the White House was very busy giving the Muslim Brotherhood free PR. This prompted the Telegraph to write an article entitled, "The Muslim Brotherhood gets a PR makeover from the Obama administration." In the piece, Administration officials are quoted as saying that the Muslim Brotherhood is a "largely secular" organisation that "eschewed violence." Today, after winning the Presidency, the M.B. declared that, "Allah willing," their new capital would be in Jerusalem. Something tells me that they...

He won 51.73% of the vote, beating former PM Ahmed Shafiq, the Higher Presidential Election Commission said. The head of the panel of judges, Farouq Sultan, said it had upheld some of the 466 complaints by the candidates, but that the election result still stood.

    New regimes that have replaced or are replacing the old in the Arab world are dominated by hardline Islamists. India should be worried by the changes. The Government has faced criticism in Western capitals and even from its own ‘liberal intelligentsia’ for not supporting Western attempts for ‘regime change’ in those countries labelled as ‘rogue states,’ or are said to be acquiring ‘weapons of mass destruction’. This Western propensity for ‘regime change’ was justified ideologically, as the Soviet Union was falling apart and finally collapsed on December 25, 1991. In his thesis entitled, The End of History, American scholar Francis...

    President Barack Obama’s deputies are holding “hundreds” of closed-door meetings with a jihad-linked lobbying group that is widely derided by critics as a U.S. arm of the theocratic Muslim Brotherhood. The admission of meetings with the Council on American-Islamic Relations came from George Selim, the White House’s new director for community partnerships, which was formed in January to ensure cooperation by law enforcement and social service agencies with Muslim identity groups in the United States. “There is hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues,” he told The Daily Caller, after being...

    In 'New Egypt', Mobs Sexually Assault Women with Impunity CAIRO — Her screams were not drowned out by the clamor of the crazed mob of nearly 200 men around her. An endless number of hands reached toward the woman in the red shirt in an assault scene that lasted less than 15 minutes but felt more like an hour. She was pushed by the sea of men for about a block into a side street from Tahrir Square. Many of the men were trying to break up the frenzy, but it was impossible to tell who was helping and who...

    The head of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called on Arab forces to confront Israel and for the international community to pressure the “Zionist government to withdraw from the land of Palestine.” The statement – the existence of which was revealed Wednesday by the Investigative Project on Terrorism blog – reminds Brotherhood followers of the movement’s decades-long “sacrifices” in efforts to destroy the Jewish state. “On this day, like every year, the Arab and Islamic nations remember the worst catastrophe ever to befall the peoples of the world,” Badie wrote in the text, translated by The Jerusalem Post. “We demand the
