Though it's popular today to take the side of the underdog - or perceived underdog, why does it seem Obama is against Mubarak's more secular regime, and on the side of the revolutionaries who are believed to be backed by the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization?
How strange that U.S. President Obama gives a speech (see below) saying he is asking the Egyptian authorities (25 sec. in) to refrain from violence against protestors. And at (50 sec) he asks the Egyptian government to reverse the actions they've taken to interfere with access to the internet, cell phone service and social networks. All these 'requests' by Obama de facto strengthen the side of the protestors.
Now, to make this perfectly clear, I am not pro Mubarak. He is a dictator and a snake. We don't need to ask who he is. The question we need to ask is, 'Who is behind this revolution?'. It's certainly not spontaneous. There was nothing like a 'Rodney King' explosion to rally behind. No political opposition leader was publicly put to death that would spark a spontaneous uprising. This had to be planned. So who planned it? It's widely believed that the Muslim Brotherhood is behind this. There is much we need to know about the Muslim Brotherhood, and much we need to know about President B. Hussein Obama's connections to it, and history with it.
The Muslim Brotherhood is Egypt's most powerful opposition group. Their representatives -who run as 'independents' make up about 20% of their parliament. The Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization, like the Hamas terrorist organization, operates charities like schools and hospitals and in this way gets hold of the people. This is how the Hamas rose in stature among the Arabs in Gaza as well. But let us not be fooled. Their 'charities' make them no less violent criminal terrorists. Their 'charity work' is a tactic to get the people behind them. And it works... - until they get into power, and then they abuse and take away the rights of the very same people they represented. The Hamas learned well, because in fact, they began as an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood back in the 1970s. Like father, like son.
According to Wikipedia: "While studying at university, Osama bin Laden claimed to have been influenced by the religious and political ideas of several professors with strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood".
"Al-Hajj Amin al-Husseini ... eventually appointed by the British as Grand Mufti of Jerusalem in hopes of accommodating him, was the leader of the [Muslim Brotherhood] group in Palestine. [He met with Hitler to assist in the Final Solution] Another important leader associated with the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine was 'Izz al-Din al-Qassam, an inspiration to Islamists because he had been the first to lead an armed resistance in the name of Palestine against the British in 1935. Under these leaders, many moderate local Arab leaders were assassinated, including King Abdullah I of Jordan, and, from 1921 on, numerous terrorist attacks were perpetrated against Jews, amongst which was the murder of 67 religious Jews, men, women and children, and wounding of many others, in the 1929 Hebron massacre. Al-Hajj Amin al-Husseini led a general uprising against the British from 1936 to 1939; as a Nazi ally he spent the Second World War in Nazi Germany and advocated for and aided their annihilation of the Jews. In 1945, the group established a branch in Jerusalem, and by 1947 twenty-five more branches had sprung up, in towns such as Jaffa, Lod, Haifa, Nablus, and Tulkarm, which total membership between 12,000 to 20,000. Brotherhood members fought alongside the Arab armies during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war..."
According to Chris Carter, a research analyst at the Counterterrorism Research Center of the Family Security Foundation, today, the Muslim Brotherhood "has either founded or is linked to most major U.S. Muslim organizations such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Students Association (MSA), the Muslim American Society, and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The MB denounced violence back in the 1970's and now claim that they stand for democratic reform, but they support suicide bombings and are tied to international terrorist attacks."
Needless to say, the Muslim Brotherhood is banned in Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood provides religious backing for Iran's moves in the Middle East, and the current government in Egypt sees Iran as a threat. And now, it looks like it could be the Muslim Brotherhood (with Iran's backing) that has manipulated and agitated students and other citizenry to go into the streets. Iran, which has its tentacles already in Lebanon through the Hezbollah terrorists, and has tentacles in Gaza through the Hamas, now wants its tentacles in Egypt, to get access to the Suez canal and the Sinai which borders the Gazan southern border with Egypt. Having access to this border and/or it's tunnels between Egypt and the Hamas in Gaza, will enable Iran to build up the passage of heavy weaponry into the region that can't be transported so easily through tunnels, to use against Israel. - Seems everything points to Israel.
Of course, now, the rioters in Egypt are yelling phrases like, 'We want Democracy' and 'Mubarak Out'. But in the end, just as the Iranian People's revolution that called for the same thing back in the 70's and which ousted the Shah, they ended up with the Mullahs, Islamic law, and no real democracy. And Iran is using their money now to build nuclear weapons, and not helping its population. It also has turned against the West, especially America. Oh well.
Now, let's look at Obama, and ask ourselves why he would ask for leniency and a free hand to open communications for the (most likely believed to be backers) Muslim Brotherhood and their patsy supporters.
Obama is a Muslim. His father was a Muslim. It's alleged that Obama's father was himself was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood for 30 years. Obama's step father was also a Muslim. B. Hussein Obama studied at a Muslim school as a boy. When he later became President of the United States, he ran to make a speech in Egypt and stated to his Cairo audience and the entire Muslim world that "the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam". Why? How could he make this statement? Especially after the Sept. 11th attacks, AND the fact that Islam IS AT WAR already with America?
Why would Obama make these gestures? Further, why in 2009, would Obama, as president of the United States, meet with the Muslim Brotherhood, a terror group? See this excerpt from Haaretz:
"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. ...
"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 newspaper also reported that the members communicated to Obama their position that the Muslim Brotherhood would abide by all agreements Egypt has signed with foreign countries. ...."
What did they talk about?
Why did they even meet?
And why is Obama seemingly siding with the revolution?
I think we'd all like to know, one way or the other.
