A question that absolutely must be asked is just what is the nature of Barack Obama’s relationship with the anti-Semitic, Islamist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood? The reason this question must be asked is because the Brotherhood is currently surging in power throughout the Middle East, most significantly in Egypt, and has done so, at least in part, as a consequence of the actions of the President of the United States.
President Obama holds some responsibility for the rise of the Brotherhood because when Obama threw Mubarack to the wolves, he simultaneously helped clear a path for the Brotherhood in Egypt. As loathsome as the Mubarack dictatorship might have been, it was an ally of the United States and committed to keeping the peace with Israel. What the rise of political Islam throughout the Arab world will bring us is open to debate, but do not expect to see a friendly regime in Cairo, despite Obama’s obsequious demeanor toward political Islam.
The Brotherhood, it cannot be overemphasized, is the father organization of both Hamas and al-Qaeda, and has an ideological and historical provenance that goes to Nazi Germany. The goals of the organization are summed up in its credo:
Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.
Death for the sake of Allah? This is the organization that Obama met with in secret?
In a Ha’aretz article from as early as June 4, 2009, we learn that:
U.S. President Barack Obama met with members of Egypt's Islamist opposition movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, earlier this year, according to a report in Thursday editions of the Egyptian daily newspaper Almasry Alyoum.
The newspaper reported that Obama met the group's members, who reside in the U.S. and Europe, in Washington two months ago…
According to the report, the members requested that news of the meeting not be publicized. They expressed to Obama their support for democracy and the war on terror.
The Muslim Brotherhood wanted to keep their meeting with Obama a secret? That’s rather surprising. I can certainly understand why Obama, himself, would want to keep a meeting with genocidal Islamists a secret, but why would they want to do so? Furthermore, they told Obama that they support democracy and the war on terror?
The scary thing is that, given his friendliness toward the Brotherhood, Obama may very well have believed them. But, whether he did or did not, it should be clear that if Barack Obama met with the Brotherhood before they came into power in Egypt, this represents clear support for that organization.
I assume, of course, that Barack Obama does not share the Muslim Brotherhood's genocidal intentions. In fact, I am certain that he does not. I therefore can only conclude that president Obama honestly believes that the organization is, all evidence to the contrary, "moderate."
And this is precisely why the Obama administration is a menace to Jews the world over. If there is one thing that Jewish people learned from World War II it is that when governments or leaders declare a genocidal intent toward the Jews, they mean it. For Obama to be so dismissive of this concern, given the rocking good time that Jews had in the Europe in the middle of the last century, tells us that he just doesn't care or just doesn't get it or, more likely, both.
I still think that Obama is a shoo-in come November. I find it difficult to believe that Mitt Romney can possibly unseat this president. It is for this reason that we must keep a close eye on this administration viz-a-viz the Jewish state. I don't trust him because he has thrown away my trust with dumb little maneuvers like the one above.
Barack Obama met with the Muslim Brotherhood in secret?
And Jewish liberals are supposed to continue supporting this guy? In my not so humble opinion, it would take either a blinkered "progressive" ideologue caterwauling about "Israel Firsters" or a trembling Ghetto Jew to still support this president.
Thankfully, most of us are neither.
