Appeasing the Muslim Brotherhood — Obama’s Rubicon Moment

Appeasing the Muslim Brotherhood — Obama’s Rubicon
Moment

By Eileen F.
Toplansky

Signed on September 17, 1978, the Camp David Accords ushered in a peace
between Egypt and Israel.  This peace is clearly in jeopardy now that Obama has
shown that America can no longer be trusted to aid its allies, let alone its own
interests.  In 2010, Homeland Security Secretary Janet
Napolitano
secretly met with the Muslim Brotherhood, “a movement that uses a

religious identity to mask
its political agenda
.”  Also in 2010, the U.N. Security Council “quietly
dropped Youssef Nada
, a prominent financial and diplomatic representative of

the Muslim Brotherhood from an international sanctions list directed at curbing
the activities of alleged terrorist financiers.”  At the time, Victor Comras, a
former adviser on financial sanctions believed that “the Obama administration
would have had to signal that it was willing to go along with this
decision.”
The Muslim Brotherhood, long a supporter of Hamas and Hezb’allah,
deliberately works to “foster confusion” in order to obfuscate its real
message.  Thus, conflicting
messages
come from the Brotherhood leaders, yet it is patently apparent that
they are committed to the destruction of Israel.  During the Holy Land
Foundation case, one of the most interesting
exhibits
was a “Muslim Brotherhood memorandum by Mohamed Akram, dated May
22, 1991, where he outlines the Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] vision of the
future.”  Thus, “the Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind
of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from
within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the
believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over
all other religions.”
The Brotherhood’s slogan
depicting a Koran
and swords reinforces the group’s commitment to jihad and
worldwide Islamification.   On October 27, 2009, the Muslim Brotherhood Sheik Mahdi Akef claimed that the
“Arab rulers are more despicable than the Zionists” and urged his listeners “to
wage jihad.”  In 2007, Akef said that the “Brotherhood
has not recognized
Camp David from the very first day it was signed.”  In
2004, Akef declared “his complete faith that Islam will invade Europe and
America.”
More recently, in his February 4, 2011 Friday sermon, Iranian Supreme Leader
Al-Khamenei
exhorted his listeners as he described the events in Egypt as an
“Islamic liberation movement.”  He reminded his followers of the Iranian
Revolution, also known as the Islamic revolution or 1979 Revolution, and
reflected on certain parallels with the current Egyptian uprising.  Khamenei
called the Camp David peace treaty signed by Egypt and Israel the “Treaty of
Shame.”  Syria was praised by Khamenei, while Egypt’s Mubarak is cited as a
traitor to the Islamic movement.  Moreover, Khamenei told his worshipers “not
[to] trust the role played by the West and America. … “
Ominously, Khamenei explained that “the religious scholars, and Al-Azhar
… [would] play a much more significant role [in the new Islamic revolution].”
Thus, “when the people embark on its revolution from the mosques and the Friday
sermons, and raise the slogan of ‘Allah Akbar,’ the Islamic scholars are
expected to play a more prominent role.  This expectation is in
place.”
From his pulpit, Khamenei avowed that “the Zionist enemy, not the Egyptian
people, should tremble in fear of the Egyptian army,” as he believes the
Egyptian army will [eventually] join the masses.”
In November 2007, Lt. Col. (ret.) Jonathan
D. Halevi
wrote for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs that the Muslim
Brotherhood’s “top priority is constructing a Muslim infrastructure in the West
which will slowly but surely enable it to rule during the 21st
century.  As far as the final goal is concerned, there are no policy differences
between al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.  The two organizations have the
same objective: to place the entire world under an Islamic caliphate.”
More recently, Dore
Gold
asks if “the Obama administration’s policy toward Egypt [is] based on
a perception that the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood would be extremely
dangerous — Or have they taken the position…that the Brotherhood has become
moderate and can be talked to?”
In September of 2010, Muslim
leaders were brought to the White House
in order to provide the groups
“funding, government assistance and resources.”  That is, “the workshop
apparently provided special access for these Muslim Brotherhood organizers.”
Thus, “the White House initiated a taxpayer-funded government stimulus program
for the attending Muslim Brotherhood-associated groups.”  In fact, “the
sponsoring organization (CCMO) or Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations
has a long history of associations with the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Repeatedly, expert testimony has been given by people who have lived under
sharia law and/or have devoted their lives to investigating the terror
perpetuated by the Muslim Brotherhood.  In fact, Nonie
Darwish
described “a former Muslim critic of Islam [who has stated] that he
is no longer confident that the US government will protect his civil rights as
long as there are people in [the American] government such as Dalia Mogahed, the
first White House Muslim advisor who is a firm defender of the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America
(ISNA), both groups that are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.”
In his 2009 report entitled “The
Muslim Brotherhood in the United States
,” author Steven Merley lists the
Muslim Brotherhood Organizations in the United States.  They include the more
well-known ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and the MSA (Muslim Students
Association) as well as others such as the Muslim Communities Association, the
Association of Muslim Social Scientists, the Islamic Medical Association, the
Muslim Youth of North America, the ISNA Political Awareness Committee, the OLF
(Occupied Land Fund), the MIA (Mercy International Association), the IIC
(Islamic Information Center), to name only a few.
It is now time to test Obama’s moral compass.  He needs to be directly
asked if he believes the Muslim Brotherhood is a threat to the United States.
If he affirms that it is, then he needs to be forcefully questioned as to why he
has not taken more concerted steps to thwart their growth in the United States.
If, on the other hand, the 44th president states that the Muslim
Brotherhood is not a threat, then it is quite clear where his true allegiance
rests.  American vulnerability would be publicly exposed putting us at grave
risk.
If Obama cannot or will not answer this simple question, then his neutral
stance also speaks volumes and will embolden the terrorism of the Muslim
Brotherhood.
It is the Rubicon moment for this man.  It is the wake-up call for the rest
of us.
