Don't miss my column today on Egypt at WND:
Unable to pull himself away from the pool, golf course or this week’s
“body man,” Barack Obama on Thursday released a statement reiterating
his support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Obama announced that
the United States was cancelling its biannual joint military exercise
with Egypt – which the Egyptians had already canceled.
This was Obama’s retaliation for the Egyptian military’s crackdown on
the Brotherhood – despite the fact that the Brotherhood has been
burning churches and terrorizing Christians all over Egypt. Instead of
punishing the new regime, Obama should be thanking it, and the Egyptian
protesters, for saving his administration from the disastrous
consequences of Obama-backed Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt.
Obama uttered the bald-faced lie that “We don’t take sides” in the
Egypt conflict. That’s up there with “I didn’t inhale” and “I did not
have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Memo to Obama: We do take
sides. The side of political freedom and individual rights. Or at least
we should take that side. But Obama has chosen to take the opposite side
– the side of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama has been a patsy for the Muslim Brotherhood, and now Egypt is
calling him out on it. Rapidly re-Islamizing Turkey has come down
strongly for the Brotherhood, and now Egypt’s Adli Mansour has declared
his intention to sign the U.N.’s resolution acknowledging the Armenian
genocide – a clear slap at the pro-Shariah, pro-Muslim Brotherhood
Erdogan regime in Turkey. Obama loves Erdogan, calling him his closest
friend among world leaders. He does what Erdogan recommends, because he
thinks it wins him influence in the Muslim world. But what is really
happening is that the U.S. is helping Erdogan attain his dreams of
restoring the Ottoman Empire – just as he has backed the Islamic
supremacists in Egypt.
Obama has done nothing to end the slaughter of non-Muslims under the
Shariah or protect the Christians in Egypt. He didn’t say a word about
the burned churches in his short address from his luxurious vacation
spot Martha’s Vineyard. Instead, he supports the savages. It is a horror
we will never live down.
Enough. The abandonment of religious minorities under the Shariah has
become a hallmark of the Obama presidency. Hundreds of thousands of
Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, in Egypt, Indonesia, Thailand, the
Philippines, Lebanon, Malaysia et al are victims of oppression,
subjugation and ethnic cleansing. President Obama did nothing. Worse,
President Obama went so far as to remove the sections covering
religious freedom and religious persecution from the Country Reports on
Human Rights that the State Department releases because the numbers
under his reign are obscene.
More than 36 churches were destroyed last week in Egypt at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is open season on Christians.
The Muslim Brotherhood camps/sit-ins were stockpiling weapons,
torturing activists seeking to leave, exploiting women and children and
inciting violence. Brotherhood supporters were firing on soldiers and
police. Brotherhood supporters destroyed scores of churches last week,
all the while chanting, “With our blood, our souls we will defend
Islam.” Not Egypt. Islam.
The Egyptian government had to clean out the Muslim Brotherhood’s
terror camps – there were independent entities preparing for civil war
where people were being tortured and murdered. Obama was wrong to
criticize the Egyptian government while expressing no solidarity with
the soldiers and police officers who were brutally murdered by the
Muslim Brotherhood. Did anyone think that the global jihadist Muslim
Brotherhood was going to go quietly?
Obama must correct his catastrophic mistake. He supported the Brotherhood from Day 1 of his presidency. He has Muslim Brotherhood advisers
in his administration. He invited the Muslim Brotherhood to his
notorious appeasement speech in Cairo on June 4, 2009 (despite the fact
that they were still banned at the time). This was a very pointed attack
on our ally, Mubarak (who was unable to attend because of the presence
of the Brotherhood). Obama’s public support of the Brotherhood in Cairo
and subsequent outreach to the organization in Egypt set the stage for
their coup in January 2011. Obama’s director of national intelligence,
James Clapper, called Egypt’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood movement “largely secular.”
Obama threatened any opposition to the Muslim Brotherhood with
withdrawal of billions in U.S. aid after he helped oust the regime of
Hosni Mubarak. His bloody hands are all over this.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center has called on Obama and the world to
recognize the Muslim Brotherhood as the hate group that it is. The
Wiesenthal Center is one of the few legitimate Jewish organizations in
the United States, fighting for freedom and equality for all and
speaking out against Islamic anti-Semitism, the gravest threat that the
Jewish people face today. The Anti-Defamation League, by contrast,
stands with Muslim Brotherhood groups like the Hamas-tied Council on
American-Islamic Relations, and many Jewish groups in America have also
lost their way. We see time and time again quisling Jewish groups
shilling for annihilationists and providing cover to Islamic Jew-haters.
Kudos to Marvin Heir and Abraham Cooper for standing up and speaking
the truth about the Brotherhood at a time when so few will do so.
Least of all Obama. Again, enough. Americans cannot sanction a
pro-Shariah president. Obama was elected not only to protect and defend
America, but to lead the free world. He has abandoned that task. And the
enemedia are an activist arm of the Obama administration. Too many
Americans are woefully unaware of the catastrophic consequences of this
rogue president. And America is in free-fall.
Where are the lily livered cowards on the right? SPEAK UP. Now. Pass
an emergency resolution allowing Christians emergency asylum from Egypt
and other Muslim countries that target Christians.
Obama’s silence on the mass cleansing of Christians and churches in Egypt is unconscionable.
