August 2018: The U.S. is wrong about the Muslim Brotherhood and the Arab world is suffering for it
Washington Post ^ | August 28, 2018 | Jamal Khashoggi

Posted on 10/19/2018 3:41:17 PM PDT by detective

During the Obama presidency, the U.S. administration was wary of the Muslim Brotherhood, which had come to power in Egypt after the country’s first-ever free elections. Despite his declared support for democracy and change in the Arab world in the wake of the Arab Spring, then-President Barack Obama did not take a strong position and reject the coup against President-elect Mohamed Morsi. The coup, as we know, led to the military’s return to power in the largest Arab country — along with tyranny, repression, corruption and mismanagement.

That is the conclusion that David D. Kirkpatrick arrives at in his excellent book “Into the Hands of the Soldiers,” which was released this month. A former Cairo bureau chief for the New York Times, Kirkpatrick gives a sad account of Egypt’s 2013 coup that led to the loss of a great opportunity to reform the entire Arab world and allow a historic change that might have freed the region from a thousand years of tyranny.

The United States’s aversion to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is more apparent in the current Trump administration, is the root of a predicament across the entire Arab world. The eradication of the Muslim Brotherhood is nothing less than an abolition of democracy and a guarantee that Arabs will continue living under authoritarian and corrupt regimes. In turn, this will mean the continuation of the causes behind revolution, extremism and refugees — all of which have affected the security of Europe and the rest of the world. Terrorism and the refugee crisis have changed the political mood in the West and brought the extreme right to prominence there.

Here is one of the articles Khashoggi had published in the Washington Post.

The article is simply dishonest, Muslim Brotherhood propaganda. There is no honesty or historical accuracy in the article. It is simply criticizing the United States and praising the Muslim Brotherhood.

Radical islam lies almost as much as the press.

The real question is, imo, who in the Washington Post is to hang as a traitor for hiring a known enemy agent?

“The eradication of the Muslim Brotherhood is nothing less than an abolition of democracy”

PURE B.S.

“Democracy” is to the Muslim Brotherhood what “a coalition government” was to the Bolsheviks in Russia and to every Marxist organization. It is but a means, a tool, for subversion of societies to the philosophocal dictates of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Joined at the hip at birth, as far as modern Muslim philosphies, the Al Queda & ISIS types are cousins of the Muslim Brotherhood, with final end goals the same and the main differences are only in how to get there - the terrorists direct & violent approach, or the “peaceful” subversion of the Muslim Brotherhood.

This article is factually and hysterically incorrect. The Soetoro Regime was fully infected, happily, by the MB, starting with ValJar and reaching deep into the Clowns at the very top, and nearly all other areas of the Regime. WTF indeed.

From this point forward, I’m simply going to assume that “Khashoggi” is the Arabic translation for “Fake News.”

Khashoggi was not a journalist.

He was a political advocate.

Someone should ask the Washington Post if Khashoggi was registered in the USA as a “Foreign Agent.”

The MB has in its charter the destruction of civilization and the installation of izzlam. The post is lying to help the izzlamists.

Well, that sick bastard in now dead. No more praise for a sick and twisted offshoot of a horrific religion.

Check the history of Europe. The great victories are not won over other European states, they are won over ISLAM, the scourge of the world since The 7th Century.

One day, we will wake up to this satanic cult and rid the world of them.

I am not convinced that Khashoggi is dead, but if he is, I would consider any brutal death of a Compost reporter a free move in the game of life.

This is pocket propaganda, nothing more. Khasshogi was a Bin Laden childhood friend and Muslin Brotherhood apologist. Personally, I don’t care that he’s dead, how he died, how gruesome it was, how long it took him to die, nor who carried it out.

Saudis and Turks are coequals in duplicity. The reason the U.S.supports SA is solely geopolitical: to prevent the hegemony of a nuclear-armed Iran.

If Muslims eat their own, so be it. One less jihadi costs me no sleep
