Oh, Brother!-hood.

So, now this pro Palestinian administration is open to talks with the Muslim Brotherhood.  This from CNN:  The Obama administration is open to dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday about the Islamist group.

"We believe, given the changing political landscape in Egypt, that it is in the interests of the United States to engage with all parties that are peaceful and committed to nonviolence, that intend to compete for the parliament and the presidency," she told reporters in Budapest, Hungary. "And we welcome, therefore, dialogue with those Muslim Brotherhood members who wish to talk with us."
So, it looks like this administration has fallen hook, line and sinker in believing that the Muslim Brotherhood is just a loving, secular, peaceful organization.

Well let's take a look at that.

This from the counter terrorism blog 'Muslim Brotherhood for Beginners': The Muslim Brotherhood's charter describes its goal as the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate - an empire stretching from Spain to Indonesia. Although it claims to be non-violent, its charter describes “dying in the way of Allah” as the group’s highest hope. Its most infamous alumnus is undoubtedly Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the number two leader of Al Qaida.

Anti terrorism expert Andrew McCarthy is a former US prosecuting attorney. He was the lead attorney who  prosecuted Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He got convictions on them all.  McCarthy has recently posted a great must read piece in the National Review Online "Obama Administration Opens Formal Contacts With The Muslim Brotherhood".  In it he says the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto remains, “Allah is our objective, the Prophet is our leader, the Koran is our law, Jihad is our way, and dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope — Allahu Akbar!“

I wonder how many people know this fact from Andrew McCarthy: At around the same time, at his [Obama's] 2009 Cairo speech — which was one big “outreach” to Islamists — the administration infuriated the Mubarak regime by inviting Brotherhood members to attend, even though the Brotherhood was then a formally banned organization under Egyptian law.

McCarthy on the supposed non violence the Obama administration tries to portray the Brotherhood as:
As I have repeatedly pointed out — and as Barry Rubin argues in this excellent analysis of the new Obama policy — the Brotherhood has always favored violence where it would advance the Islamist cause.

Andrew McCarthy's must read piece ends with this chilling paragraph: Meanwhile, the Obama Justice Department has pulled the plug on further prosecution of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates identified as coconspirators in the Holy Land Foundation case. And now we’ll be formally engaged with the Brotherhood overseas just as we’ve been formally embracing its operatives in our own country. The Grand Jihad is right on schedule.

I want everyone to answer this honestly.  Do you think our president has a greater affinity for Israel or the Muslim Brotherhood?      

I thought there was no way America would elect a man who had so many anti American, anti semitic friends and mentors. I thought here was no way America would elect a man who sat in the pews of a church that had an anti semitc pastor.  I thought there was no way America would elect a man whose pastor of 20 years said G D America.   But we did.     
Those of us who put out the warnings of Obama's troublesome friends, just before the 2008 election, were accused of using guilt by association.      
Will I now be accused of using guilt by pointing out his actions and policies?
Oh, brother!-hood.
