There’s nothing like some good ol’ inspiration to get any team motivated to go out and win. We’ve all seen movies where inspirational speeches somehow enable a team to dig just a little deeper into themselves. However, you never see an instance where the leaders of one team go over to the opposing team to provide them with a highly spirited charge that will instill in them a desire to beat their own team. Could you imagine Sunday, the coaches of the Seattle Seahawks inviting the New England Patriots team into their locker room to pump them up?
Well, apparently that’s what the United States did this past week.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week. The organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.”
“The State Department meeting was attended by a deputy assistant secretary for democracy, human rights, and labor and other State Department officials. The Muslim Brotherhood statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.”
We reported on this a few days ago and the official State Department response was “We meet with representatives from across the political spectrum in Egypt.”And why not? I’m quite sure they don’t consider the Muslim Brotherhood an Islamic terrorist organization — just “unarmed political insurgents” – kind of like the Taliban. As a matter of fact, I’m quite sure the Obama White House considers the Tea Party a greater threat to the United States than the Muslim Brotherhood. Hey, that reminds me of something — has Obama or his minions ever invited Tea Party leaders to the White House? Quite telling would you not say, that President Obama and his administration has had Islamic clerics who issued fatwas on our troops and individuals linked to the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House but not any of the Tea Party leaders targeted by his IRS? Whose side is he on?
Or here’s an obvious one: has Obama ever had Chris Kyle’s wife Taya to the White House? I think you get my point.
Here is what the Obama administrations BFFs at the Muslim Brotherhood had to say, “It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom,” it states.”
“Preparation for jihad is a key theme of the Brotherhood’s latest call for jihad. An image posted with the statement shows two crossing swords and the word “prepare!” between them. Below the swords it reads, “the voice of truth, strength, and freedom.” According to the statement, “that is the motto of the Dawa of the Muslim Brotherhood.” The statement also invokes the well-known Muslim cleric Imam al-Bana, who founded the Brotherhood and has called for the death of Jews.”
Now, I seem to remember one now CIA Director John Brennan, telling us that “jihad” was a legitimate tenet of Islam — y’all know, that “religion of peace.” Folks telling us that jihad is some personal struggle, well, I ain’t feeling the personal struggle aspect from the above quote from the venerable granddaddy of Islamic terrorism, the Muslim Brotherhood.
Seems to me they’re calling for a struggle against others which they pray ends up in martyrdom — you know, where they kill folks and get taken out as well. Then again, according to Al Jazeera English, I’m all wet. After all, one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. Yes, that’s it! The Muslim Brotherhood stands for freedom — the freedom to kill those who don’t follow the ways of the Ikhwan. And if you don’t know what that is, well, you should read more.
“The fact that the Brotherhood issued its call to jihad two days after its meeting at the State Department will be grist for endless anti-American conspiracy theories about a supposed partnership between Washington and the Brotherhood,” said Eric Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). “The State Department should have foreseen what an embarrassment this would be.”
I don’t think anything embarrasses the Obama administration. We know things could have had a far different and peaceful settlement in Libya — but for some odd reason, seems like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton wanted the Islamic jihadists to win. The new disclosed tapes tell us so — and then ol’ Hillary outsourced the Special Mission Compound in Benghazi security to an Islamist militia, February 17 Martyrs — the rest is history.
However, as Hillary would say to all of this, “What difference at this point does it make?” The difference is we are truly starting to wonder — well, at least those of us not drinking the kool-aid — if the policy of this administration is to openly embrace Islamic terrorists. Because it sure seems that way.
“Muslim Brothers have been committing violent acts for a very long time,” Trager explained. “Under Morsi, Muslim Brothers tortured protesters outside the presidential palace. After Morsi’s ouster, they have frequently attacked security forces and state property. But until now, the official line from the Brotherhood was to support this implicitly by justifying its causes, without justifying the acts themselves,” he added. “ So the Brotherhood’s open call to jihad doesn’t necessarily mean a tactical shift, but a rhetorical one.”
So something occurred at the State Department meeting earlier this week which has emboldened the Muslim Brotherhood to openly advocate the actions they were previously unwilling to embrace — but were conducting.
Something happened at Foggy Bottom that gave the Muslim Brotherhood the “green light.” Funny, Obama has dispatched campaign staffers to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. They’ve met with Muslim Brotherhood leaders while shunning Egyptian President al-Sisi.
But this administration will not call out Turkey’s President Erdogan – another Obama BFF — or the treacherous Qataris. And we know Obama gets REALLY mad if Congress talks about reinstating sanctions against Iran — Valerie Jarrett’s “homeboys.”
I don’t know. This is getting all too easy to decipher. It’s like President Obama doesn’t care anymore about hiding his affections and affiliations — and he’s daring the American people to stop him. Will we?
