  • Why Obama Gave Away the Middle East

    01/23/2012 12:44:13 AM PST · by tsowellfan · 12 replies · 1+ views
    Editor’s note: The world is at this moment witnessing a horrific phenomenon: Islamists coming to power throughout the Middle East under the guise of a supposed “Arab Spring” – while the President of the United States is facilitating the entire process. Indeed, President Obama is reaching his hand out in solidarity to Islamists and enabling their solidification of power throughout the region. While displaying a disastrous weakness with Iran and allowing the Mullahs to move ahead aggressively with their nuclear weapon program, the Obama administration is helping the Muslim Brotherhood take over Egypt and the Taliban regain power in Afghanistan....

    Documents recently released by the Department of Justice in response to a Freedom of Information Act request show members of groups linked to the radical Muslim Brotherhood treating agency officials like “errand boys” who fulfill their every request, and setting them up to perform “gofer” duties, says researcher and activist Pamela Geller. “In a rational society, these Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups would be marginalized,” Geller told WND. “Instead, the DOJ is playing ‘stepin fetchit’ for them. They’re using the DOJ as their legal arm.” Founded in Egypt in response to the fall of the Ottoman-Turkish Empire at the end of World...

    No previous American president has had so strained a relationship with Israel as Barack Obama. As Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren said in 2010, “Israel’s ties with the United States are in their worst crisis since 1975 ... a crisis of historic proportions.” Author and scholar Dennis Prager concurred, “Most observers, right or left, pro-Israel or anti-Israel, would agree that Israeli-American relations are the worst they have been in memory.” In the spring of 2011, David Parsons, spokesman for the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, said: “There's a traditional, special relationship between America and Israel that Obama is basically throwing out the...
  • Said Qutb on the Arts in America (Muslim B'hood Founder on 'Negro Music')

    The Hudson Institute ^ | 1951 | Said Qutb (translated by Daniel Burns
    Said Qutb: On the Arts in America The American is primitive in his artistic taste, both in what he enjoys as art and in his own artistic works. “Jazz” music is his music of choice. This is that music that the Negroes invented to satisfy their primitive inclinations, as well as their desire to be noisy on the one hand and to excite bestial tendencies on the other. The American’s intoxication in “jazz” music does not reach its full completion until the music is accompanied by singing that is just as coarse and obnoxious as the music itself. Meanwhile, the...

    Abroad and at home, on campus and off, the Muslim Brotherhood is an increasingly visible, yet enigmatic, presence in the world. “The Muslim Brotherhood is the oldest and most influential Islamist movement,” Lorenzo Vidino, author of The New Muslim Brotherhood in the West, said in a speech in Philadelphia on May 19, 2011. “It was founded in Egypt in 1928. And, like most of the grassroots movements that appeared in Egypt at the time, it was strongly opposed to colonial rule and advocated Egyptian independence. But while most of the movements that opposed British colonialism at the time in Egypt...
  • Muslim Brotherhood and Salafists: Same Goals; Different Strategies

    The two parties with the largest number of votes in Egypt have been the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party along with the Salafist al-Nour Party. Both are Islamist parties. Yet Western observers—including the Obama Administration—claim that the Muslim Brotherhood is a “moderate Islamist” group while the Salifists are radical. There are indeed important differences between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists but they are really issues of timing and tactics rather than of goals or principles. One way to think of them is as Coke traditional formula and Coke Light. The Brotherhood seeks to transform Egypt into a radical...

    In Egypt, calls for jizya—the tribute doctrinally demanded and historically collected from conquered infidels—are increasing day by day, by those who wish to be true to the words of Koran 9:29: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor forbid that which Allah and his Messenger have forbidden, nor follow the religion of truth [Islam], from the People of the Book [Christians and Jews], until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves utterly subdued. Accordingly, days ago, Ahmed Imran—a candidate of Egypt's Salafi party, the "Party of Light," which won some 20% of...
  • American Muslims for Palestine's Web of Hamas Support

    Muslims convicted in America of supporting terrorist groups are heroes and the victims of injustice, a national convention of Palestinian activists was told. In addition, speakers said the fight for a Palestinian state will center on American college campuses. American Muslims for Palestine (AMP)'s conference on Palestinian activism in America attracted more than 2,000 people Thanksgiving weekend in Chicago. Last year's AMP's conference revealed the organization's goal to delegitimize the State of Israel in America. This year's conference reinforced that message, while taking it a step further. At the opening ceremony, Jamal Said, an imam at the Mosque Foundation in...

    (Reuters) - Britain's top soldier warned on Wednesday that pro-democracy uprisings in the Middle East could spawn militant Islamist activity in Britain, but said the greatest threat was economic. In his end-of-year analysis of the dangers facing Britain, the chief of the defense staff, General David Richards, said the Arab Spring could stir unrest in Britain's immigrant communities. "(There is) the risk that the Arab awakening leads to fissures and internal conflict that could be exported, including militant Islamism," Richards told a defense thinktank, the Royal United Services Institute, in London. "They have diasporas reaching back to this country, as...
  • The end of Sharm el-Sheikh? Islamist parties call for ban on Westerners

    Bargain holidays for Westerners looking to get a bit of sunshine and a drink by the pool in the winter could be a thing of the past on Egypt's Red Sea coast. The Muslim Brotherhood, which won success in the first round of parliamentary elections last month, is set on turning Egypt into a 'sin-free' holiday resort. But the end of sun worshippers flying to resorts like Sharm el-Sheikh could spell disaster for an economy that has already been battered by this year's political unrest.

    CAIRO – Sen. John Kerry has met in Cairo with members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group that's set to dominate the new parliament. In a statement, the Muslim Brotherhood says three of its top officials attended the meeting with the Massachusetts Democrat, who was accompanied by U.S. Ambassador Anne Patterson. Brotherhood officials vowed to respect civil rights and international treaties that have been signed in the past. That assurance could be an attempt to calm fears that the group may try to re-examine Egypt's peace treaty with Israel.

    A former Muslim Brotherhood leader spells out its ideology: Muslims "are masters of the world” and Jihad should be waged against the "thieving gangs of Zion,” according to a Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translation of the book by Mustafa Mashur, "Jihad is the Way." He was the official leader of the Muslim Brotherhood from 1996 until he died in 2002. The ideology in the book stands behind the "Freedom and Justice” party, the euphemism chosen by the Brotherhood as the name of its political party that won 40 percent of the votes in Egypt’s first-round legislative elections last week.

    Let’s figure out what the voting in Egypt means in concrete terms. What we have so far are these results for one-third — the most liberal one-third! — of Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood — 37 percent Al-Nour (Salafist) — 25 percent Egyptian bloc (mainly the Free Egyptian party) — 14 percent Wafd (liberal, but willing to work with Brotherhood) — 8 percent Al-Wast (Moderate Muslim party) — 4 percent The remaining votes went to small parties. (Here is a remarkable set of graphs analyzing the first round of the election.) Most importantly, 112 seats in the lower house of parliament —...

    Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Ideology: "Jihad Is the Way"-Muslim Brotherhood goal: Islamic world domination For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the mission of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and around the world, read this. Commit it to memory. You'll need it. Muslim Brotherhood groups in the US (Hamas-linked CAIR, ISNA, MAS, MSA, etc.) are engaged in a propaganda war, intent on deceiving the American people about the true nature of the Muslim Brotherhood until it's too late. The Obama administration has already met with the Brotherhood, after announcing plans for direct contacts. Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Ideology PMW translation...

    Scholar Valentina Colombo has published a commentary on Tawakkul Karman, who recently received the first Nobel prize awarded to a member of the Global Muslim Brotherhood. According to the article: Once again the West has chosen among the heroes and heroines of the “Arab Spring” the most politicized, and especially the closest, to its short-sighted policies in the Middle East. Unfortunately, as mentioned by al-Mashari Dhaid on the Arab international daily Asharq al-Awsat, we should never forget that the Nobel Prize for Peace is political, and it “is an instrument of soft pressure to fulfill a specific path of peace...

A member of the rival liberal Egyptian Bloc also said that in Cairo, one area that voted on Monday and Tuesday, the list led by the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) had 40 to 50 percent of votes. His Bloc had 20 to 30 percent, he said.

    Egyptians have gone to the polls in large numbers this week to cast their votes in the first stage of protracted parliamentary elections that will stretch into early next year. Meanwhile, the country’s military rulers do not appear to be going anywhere, unless forced out by mounting street protests and outside international pressure. Few of the hundreds of thousands of protesters who have crowded Tahrir Square in recent days would appear to trust the integrity of the electoral process, nor think it will mean greater freedom any time soon. One voter quoted by the New York Times captured the situation...
