The Muslim Brotherhood. To Trust, Or Not To Trust? NOT To Trust.

Posted by Fullcouch on January 23, 2012, 3:45pm

The ostrich (and sympathy) brigade on the left seems to think that the Arab Spring will harvest a healthy, democratized, West and Israel-friendly crop. History, and the Muslim Brotherhood are telling us otherwise. But that’s the Left for you. Stage-one thinking is in progress; denial. Denial’s nothing but an Islamist river in Egypt.

Jack Kelly – Everything that was important to know about him was laid out in his memoir/manifesto: his virulent racism; his contempt for Christianity, democracy and all things Western; his murderous hatred of the Jews.

Adolf Hitler dictated “Mein Kampf” (“My Fight”) to Rudolph Hess while in Landsberg prison in 1923. After Hitler became chancellor (prime minister) in 1933, a second edition, published in English and French as well as German, sold more than a million copies.

Within a month of assuming office, Hitler began converting Germany into a dictatorship — just as he’d said he would in “Mein Kampf.”

He would seize land for lebensraum (living space) in the Slavic countries to the east, Russia especially, Hitler said in his manifesto. But when British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and French Premier Edouard Daladier met with Hitler in Munich in September 1938, they chose to believe the Sudetenland represented the end of his territorial ambitions. By sacrificing their ally Czechoslovakia, they hoped to secure “peace in our time.”

Chamberlain and Daladier chose to believe this because it would have been uncomfortable politically for them to acknowledge the truth. Liberals today delude themselves about the Muslim Brotherhood, for, I suppose, the same reason. But pretending a man-eating tiger is a pussycat doesn’t make it so.

The Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna, an Egyptian schoolteacher. He sought a world wide caliphate governed by Islamic law (Sharia). “Allah is our objective,” says the Ikhwan’s motto. “The Prophet is our leader. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our greatest hope.”

Al Banna admired Hitler. He had “Mein Kampf” translated into Arabic. The Nazis subsidized the Muslim Brotherhood. The ranks of the SS Handjar Division were filled mostly by the Ikhwan.

The Muslim Brotherhood is today the world’s largest and best financed Islamist organization. It’s in 70 countries, including ours.

The Ikhwan’s goals haven’t changed, the current supreme leader said Dec. 29.

“The Brotherhood is getting closer to achieving its greatest goal as envisioned by its founder, Imam Hassan al-Banna,” said Dr. Muhammad Badi. “A government evolving into a rightly guided caliphate and mastership of the world.”

“Mein Kampf” is still, after the Koran, the Ikhwan’s favorite book. “This stuff we now see in the Islamic world looks like Nazism because it comes from the Nazis,” wrote journalist Claire Berlinski on her blog Ricochet.

In a 2009 sermon, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s leading jurist, said: “Thoughout history, Allah has imposed upon (the Jews) people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Adolf Hitler. … Oh Allah, count their numbers and kill them, down to the very last one.”

The Muslim Brotherhood supports terrorism against Israel, Americans, the Shiites in Iraq. But because it plans to get power the way Hitler did, many liberals view the Ikhwan as benign. President Barack Obama even chose Mr. Qaradawi to mediate peace talks with the Taliban.

In elections Jan. 8, the Muslim Brotherhood won the most seats in the lower house of the Egyptian parliament. Islamist parties won nearly two thirds of the seats. The new speaker they chose is a member of the Ikhwan.

Elections for the upper house begin in late January. The presidential elections are in June. If the Muslim Brotherhood wins control of the government, it eventually will try to impose Sharia and hold a referendum to abrogate the peace treaty with Israel.

The Ikhwan are likely also to dominate the new government in Libya, where the regime of secular dictator Moammar Gadhafi was felled by NATO bombs, and in Syria, should secular dictator Bashar al-Assad fall there.

Against all evidence, President Jimmy Carter in 1970 told himself the mullahs in Iran were moderate reformers. Against even more evidence, Mr. Obama regards the Muslim Brotherhood pretty much the same way. We’re paying still a heavy price for Mr. Carter’s egregious misjudgment. A greater miscalculation, with more profound consequences, looms.

The Muslim Brotherhood must not be trusted

Muslim Brotherhood Is Gaining Ground In Egypt. Surprised?

Posted by Fullcouch on January 21, 2012, 11:10am

Anyone who is surprised by this must see the world from a proctologists point of view.

Al Jazeera – Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party wins 47 per cent of seats, with al-Nour party coming in second, officials say.

The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), which represents Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, has won 47 per cent of all seats in the country’s election for the lower house of parliament, the election commission has said.

The FJP won 235 seats in the new People’s Assembly, Abdel Moez Ibrahim, the head of the country’s election commission, announced on Saturday.

It also secured 127 seats on party lists, while its candidates won another 108 in first-past-the-post constituency votes, where votes were cast for individual candidates.

The hardline Islamist Salafi al-Nour party has won 24 per cent of all seats on offer.

The liberal al-Wafd party won about seven per cent of the seats, according to the latest results. The remaining 22 per cent of seats were split amongst smaller political parties.

The election commission says that voter turnout was 54 per cent in the polls.

The FJP has named Saad al-Katatni, a leading Muslim Brotherhood official who has previously sat in parliament as an independent, as speaker of the assembly.

Katatni has told the Reuters news agency that he intends for the role of the assembly to “reconciliatory”.

“The priorities are meeting the demands of the revolution,including the rights of the injured and those killed in the
uprising,” he said.

New constitution

The landmark elections for the lower house of parliament, held in three stages, were the first since the fall of Hosni Mubarak, the former president, who was overthrown by a popular uprising in January last year.

Two-thirds of the 498 seats up for election were reserved for those belonging to registered political parties (refered to as ‘closed party lists’), while the remaining one-third of seats were contested by individuals.

Ten seats were reserved for appointees of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), the military council that has been ruling Egypt since Mubarak fell.

“This parliament, that has its opening session on Monday, has very limited powers,” reported Al Jazeera’s Sherine Tadros from Cairo, the Egyptian capital.

“The most important thing that it will be doing in the coming weeks and months, is setting up a 100-member body that will then write the constitution.”

Elections for the upper house of parliament will be held in February, after which the constituent assembly will be chosen.

A new president is to be elected by June under a timetable decided by the SCAF. Candidates can register for that election by April 15.

The Muslim Brotherhood = The Arab Spring

Posted from Mexico City by Fullcouch on December 29, 2011, 9:10pm

“Our mission is to rule the world.”

Beware the Muslim Brotherhood. They are well-organized, and well-funded. They are winning elections in Egypt, and are being overlooked, ergo, being enabled by the West.

From Terrorism-Info.org – The Muslim Brotherhood is the most well-organized political force in Egypt today. It also has a broad socio-economic system (the da’wah), built up over the years as a function of the movement’s fundamental ideology. Once Mubarak’s regime was overthrown, the Muslim Brotherhood found itself in a forward position from which to attain power than for others who participated in the protests in Tahrir Square, as can be seen by its success in two of the three election rounds for the People’s Assembly.
