Must read: Crush the Muslim Brotherhood
Daniel Greenfield writes that the Egyptian army should not be stopped from destroying the Muslim Brotherhood
In the streets of Egyptian cities, Muslim Brotherhood activists
achieved their highest hope. They died in their Jihad against the
liberal opposition and the military, fighting against human rights for
women and Christians, against multi-party rule, freedom of speech,
museums, libraries and the future in the way that the armies of Allah
have died for over a thousand years.
Some died trying to kill Egyptian soldiers and police officers.
Others were killed by their own people in order to maximize the death
toll and spread shock and horror through the international community.
Like their Hamas outlet in Gaza, like their Syrian brigades who have
wrecked entire cities and filled them with corpses, and like Al Qaeda,
whose leaders have always been Muslim Brotherhood members; the
Brotherhood does not care whose blood it spills.
When your highest hope is dying for Allah, then everything else is a
detail. The Muslim Brotherhood’s leaders, men like Morsi and Khairat
el-Shater, are far less eager to die for Allah. Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the
Brotherhood’s mad genocidal preacher, is still hiding out in Qatar and
spewing calls for violence from under the skirts of the equally cowardly
Qatari Emir, who finances the Brotherhood’s wave of death and terror in
the region while living it up in his palaces.
In his final speech, Morsi boasted of his willingness to sacrifice
his blood for power. The Brotherhood’s preacher of hate, Qaradawi, urged
Jihadists from around the world to come and be martyred in Egypt.
For the wealthy titans of the Brotherhood, their followers are pawns to
be disposed of, human shields for their political ambitions. The Muslim
Brotherhood spent their blood generously during the clashes with
Egyptian police the same way that Hamas and Hezbollah spill the blood of
their own people.
Responding to the carnage with new calls for an end to foreign aid is
an explicit form of collaboration in the Muslim Brotherhood’s
atrocities and the surest way to ensure that they will be repeated.
Egypt may deserve to lose its foreign aid, but issuing such calls now is
handing a victory to the world’s worst terrorist organization and
giving it every incentive to up the body count next time around.
The calls for Brotherhood participation in an Egyptian government are
senseless insanity. Is there room for a movement that seeks nothing but
death in the ranks of any government? Should murderous madness on such a
scale really be the currency that purchases power? Should the burners
of churches and the torturers of peaceful protesters be rewarded with
power a second time?
Western governments fear escalation in Egypt. And that fear is the
secret weapon of every terrorist group. The terrorist groups always
escalate, spending their currency of blood cheaply to break the will of
their enemies. The only way to break that cycle is to out-escalate them
by showing that their currency of blood is worthless because the people
and governments they are terrorizing will not be bent under its terrible
Wars aren’t won through de-escalation, but through escalation.
America lost in Afghanistan because it wasn’t willing to fight harder
and bloodier than the Taliban. The Egyptian government has shown that it
is willing to match the Muslim Brotherhood’s ruthlessness without
To reward the courage of the Egyptian soldiers and police who fought
the Muslim Brotherhood in the streets by forcing their government to
stand down and surrender to the terrorists who nearly turned Egypt into a
second Iran is an unmitigated crime. It is a crime whose consequences
will not only be felt by the women and Christians of Egypt, but by all
