I think that the shocking celebratory response by many Muslims on Twitter, Facebook, the streets of Gaza, and here by the Muslim Brotherhood leader is quite telling. Obama supported and helped install the Brotherhood, and has turned over billions to these savages:
criticism of Egypt's
Muslim Brotherhood has always been that it delivers one message in English to
an international audience, and another message entirely in Arabic to its
domestic audience. If anyone is ever looking for an example of this, they need
to look no further than the Islamist organization's reaction to the bombing of
the Boston Marathon.
English, the Brotherhood's political party released
a statement "categorically reject[ing] as intolerable the bombings
committed in the U.S. city
and "offer[ing] heartfelt sympathies and solemn condolences to the
American people and the families of the victims."
Arabic, senior Brotherhood leader and the vice chairman of the group's
political party Essam el-Erian took a different tack. In a post on his Facebook page, he condemned the Boston attack — but also
linked it to the French war in Mali,
the destruction in Syria and
and faltering rapprochement between the Turkish government and Kurdish rebels.
is making the case that all of these setbacks — from Boston
to Baghdad —
are somehow connected. "Who disturbed democratic transformations, despite
the difficult transition from despotism, corruption, poverty, hatred, and
intolerance to freedom, justice tolerance, development, human dignity, and
social justice?" he asked. "Who planted Islamophobia through research, the
press, and the media? Who funded the violence?"
just poses those questions — he doesn't accuse any specific group of
masterminding the Boston Marathon attack or the unrest across the Middle East. But while Brotherhood leaders feel free to
indulge in such conspiracy-mongering in Arabic, these claims are notably absent
from the group's English-language media.
