In February 2011, the director of the FBI told members of a House of Representatives committee that portions of the Muslim Brotherhood have direct ties to Islamic terrorism. Yesterday, members of this group met with White House officials in the nation’s capital.
And even though the Muslim Brotherhood said they would not field a presidential candidate in Egypt they not only have changed their minds (no surprise) but they have stated their “first and final” objective if they won would be to make Sharia the law of the land.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said:
We have broadened our engagement to include new and emerging political parties and actors. Because of the fact that Egypt’s political landscape has changed, the actors have become more diverse and our engagement reflects that. The point is that we will judge Egypt’s political actors by how they act — not by their religious affiliation.
Of course that last bit – nice and “non-judgemental” is a sop to the “Celebrate Diversity” crowd but hard to see how when a group has said spreading Sharia Law (that’s a religious law) to every part of the world would not be enough evidence for these dolts.
And U.S. officials have not condemned the Muslim Brotherhood for changing their mind and fielding a candidate or for stating Sharia Law as their goal.
A woman in America complains that birth control is too expensive and Liberals have fits. A candidate in another nation speaks on behalf of a party that wants to keep women illiterate and locked up and then his group meets with White House officials and nothing is said.
Who is being “anti-woman” in this situation?
Obamabots might say the U.S. doesn’t want to interfere in another country’s politics… then why call for the overthrown of Egypt’s last president, Libya’s last leader, and Syria’s current one?
The political and social landscape in Egypt is turning very ugly. American reporters have been raped, beat up, Christians have been murdered and their churches burned down, and Israel has already had a rocket shot into its territory from there.
It’s an Obama world… we’re all just victims living in it.
