Pamela Geller WND Column: Egypt without illusions

10

As a Muslim Brotherhood spokesman in Egypt leads a crowd in a chant of the Obama slogan "Yes, we can!," Obama continues to advance this genocidal party. Read my column on Egypt at WND. Here's an excerpt:

DEFENDING THE WEST:
Egypt without illusions

Exclusive: Pamela Geller asks, 'What is Obama's obsession with Muslim Brotherhood?'

[…] Obama’s loyalty to the Brotherhood ought to be the subject of
congressional hearings. He thinks they’re the guardians of democracy in
Egypt? The mainstream media and Muslim Brotherhood operatives in the
U.S. keep claiming that Morsi was democratically elected, and therefore
is the legitimate president of Egypt. But there was massive fraud in the
election that put Morsi in power. He was no more democratically elected
than the Ayatollah Khomeini.

In fact, the Muslim Brotherhood is made up of Jew-hating Shariah
supremacists. Their “Palestinian” wing, Hamas, celebrates attacks on
Israeli civilians. Democracy? Obama cited Morsi’s 13 million votes for
his unqualified support of these vicious thugs. But the Tamarod
opposition group claimed before the toppling of Morsi to have 22
million signatures on a petition demanding that he step down and allow
new elections. Insanity has taken over at the highest levels in
Washington. We will pay dearly for the Muslim Brotherhood stooge in the
White House.

Mubarak was loyal to the U.S., but Obama called for Mubarak’s
resignation as soon as the Facebook revolution took off in January 2011.
He sided with the crowd depicting Mubarak as a Jew. But Obama didn’t
throw Morsi under the bus, despite the fact that even Mubarak observed
that the number of anti-Morsi protesters on the streets of Cairo dwarfed
the number of “Arab Spring” demonstrators that led to his removal from
power. Despite the historic crowds, Obama remained unmoved and firmly in
the Muslim Brotherhood camp.

At the time that Mubarak was ousted, the Brotherhood vowed to stay
out of politics and what was the first thing they did? Ran a
presidential candidate. Caroline Glick put it well: “Israelis watched in
shock and horror as their American friends followed the Pied Piper of
the phony Arab Spring over the policy cliff. Mubarak was a dictator. But
his opponents were no Alexander Dubceks. There was no reason to throw
away 30 years of stability before figuring out a way to ride the tiger
that would follow it. Certainly there was no reason to actively support
Mubarak’s overthrow.”

In one of his last acts as president, Morsi appointed Adel Mohamed
al-Khayat, governor of the Luxor tourist region. Al-Khayat is a former
member of al-Gamaa al-Islamiya, a jihad terror group that murdered 58
tourists in Luxor in 1997 because, according to a fatwa,
“tourist villages have aspects that anger Allah, including alcohol,
gambling and other forbidden things.” This appointment would never have
happened under Mubarak. But under the Muslim Brotherhood, a slaughterer
was exalted and rewarded. They were sending a message with this
appointment.

Nevertheless, Obama is “deeply concerned” about the Egyptian military’s decision to oust Morsi. Obama issued this warning in his speech about Egypt:

We are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian
Armed Forces to remove President Morsy and suspend the Egyptian
constitution. I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and
responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected
civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and
transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President
Morsy and his supporters. Given today’s developments, I have also
directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the
implications under U.S. law for our assistance to the Government of
Egypt.

Why were no such warnings issued when Islamic supremacists toppled
our 30-year ally, Hosni Mubarak? When Morsi seized dictatorial power for
himself, Obama said nothing. When he rammed through a Shariah
constitution, Obama said nothing. Obama refused congressional calls to
cut funding to Egypt in light of the increasingly authoritarian nature
of the Morsi regime.

Obama even told Coptic Christians not to protest against the Morsi
regime, despite the fact that Christians in Egypt have faced escalating
violence and suffered a nationwide wave of kidnappings under Morsi. And
signs criticizing Obama for supporting terrorism and tyranny were a
common feature of the anti-Morsi demonstrations. By consistently
supporting Islamic supremacist regimes, Obama has damaged our standing
in the world.

I have no illusions about Egypt. Yes, they have rid themselves of
Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood government. But close to 75
percent of the Egyptian people voted in last year’s election for Islamic
rule – for the Muslim Brotherhood, the Salafis and other Islamic
supremacists. I don’t see the few liberal voices there having any shot
whatsoever at forming a new government. I believe that the people
weren’t protesting the Islamization of the government but the lack of
food, jobs and opportunity. So what is coming is just more of the same.

The sudden and unexpected fall of the Morsi regime and the current
violence, confusion and turmoil in Egypt shows how Obama’s Middle
Eastern strategy has hurt Egypt and will hurt the U.S. also. And so
begins a world were America (as it was previously known) is absent. A
world where the leader of the free world is absent. Ayn Rand nailed it
when she said, “The spread of evil is the symptom of a vacuum. Whenever
evil wins, it is only by default: by the moral failure of those who
evade the fact that there can be no compromise on basic principles.”

No one can get it right every time – but it is the responsibility of
the American president to err on the side of freedom. Because that can
never be a mistake.

The “Arab Spring” was from the beginning just a fantasy – a fantasy
that Obama and his administration eagerly embraced. And what we
witnessed in the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt and the jihadist
takeover of Libya was reality making a fool of the fantasists in
Washington.

Meanwhile, pro-Muslim Brotherhood voices here in the U.S. are
agitating for the return of Morsi. Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamad
Eliabary, a member of Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council,
claimed that “undemocratic liberals are using Ends Justify Means logic”
to persecute the Brotherhood and seize power. Muslim Brotherhood groups
like CAIR and ISNA have suffered a devastating blow. These subversives
wield enormous power in Washington and in particular in this
administration. They must be stopped.
