Obama’s Muslim Brothers

The only thing that is surprising about President Obama’s reaction to the events in Egypt, is the fact that anyone is actually surprised. From the day that he was first elected, Obama has made a conscientious effort to prove to the world one clear fact: he sees the Muslim Brotherhood, in essence, as a coalition of his brothers.

You are probably thinking – “just another conspiracy theory from the right-wing camp”. Not exactly. Before you close this article, and move on to a different article that supports your current political views, allow me to present you with a few simple questions:

 Why did Obama choose to grant his first television interview, as a newly elected President, to the “Al-Arabia” news channel? Why did Obama travel, immediately following his election, to Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Egypt (“coincidentally” by-passing the USA’s ally, Israel)?

 Why did Obama choose to give his Cairo speech at the Islamic university “Al-Azhar”, an institute whose faculty publicly calls for the killing of non-Muslim populations, including Jews? And why, against the explicit entreaty of Housni Mubarak, did Obama invite representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood to be present at his speech? Let us momentarily set aside the question as to why Obama, in his speech, outrageously compared the suffering of the Palestinian people to the suffering of the Jews in the Holocaust.

 Why, immediately after the beginning of the Arab Spring uprisings in Egypt, did Obama call for the resignation of Housni Mubarak, when it was clear that the Muslim Brotherhood would rise to power? Was Obama unaware of the fact that under Sadat and Mubarak, Egypt was the strategic ally of the USA in the Middle East; an ally which preserved peace and regional stability for some four decades?

 Why did Obama ignore three petitions from members of Congress to cease the economic support of Morsi’s government, regardless of the anti-democratic changes Morsi made to Egypt’s constitution?

 His Best Friend, Erdogan

 Why is Obama so supportive of Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s Prime Minister, a devoted Islamist who has imprisoned most of Turkey’s highest military echelon as well as journalists who advocated for democracy? Why did Obama demand that Binyamin Netanyahu apologize to Turkey for the IDF’s behavior during the Flotilla incident? Furthermore, why does Obama refer to Erdogan as his “closest friend in the Middle East”?

 Unfortunately, the list goes on.

 Why does Obama support the rebel factions in Syria, which are militias under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood?

 Why has Obama failed to support the democratic grassroots movement in Iran, while pressuring Israel not to take preemptive military actions in Iran for the prevention of nuclear armament?

 On that note, why does Obama incessantly condemn Israeli settlements, while avoiding publicly demanding that the Palestinians carry out reforms in their education system; a system which denies the existence of Israel, encourages terrorist activities, celebrates the murder of Jews and advances violent hatred? Furthermore, why is Obama pressuring Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians, while failing to condemn the unity agreement between the PLO and Hamas?

 Does anyone else see a pattern here? Is it really conceivable that political analysts are struggling to understand why Obama suspended his support of the Egyptian military, immediately after the Muslim Brotherhood government was toppled and Morsi was arrested?

 There are only two ways to cope with the questions presented above. We can either bury our heads in the sand and hope that we are dealing with a series of bizarre coincidences. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine that the President of the United States would stand against democratic, liberal values and support the Islamic conquest of the world. Or we can come to grips with the fact that Obama’s fallback position is always, in all circumstances, support of the Muslim Brotherhood.

 We may or may not want to deal with the reality of this matter, but we cannot deny the facts. President Obama is a friend of the Muslim brotherhood, notwithstanding the fact that they slaughter Christians and non-consenting Muslims, suppress the rights of woman and children, quash personal freedoms and democracy, and oppose the progress of humanity. How long can we bury our heads in the sand?

 Truly, we should not be surprised.
