The Obama administration cozies up to the Muslim Brotherhood

Well, this is certainly disturbing.
The Obama administration has hired the first White House Muslim advisor, Dalia Mogahed [pictured. CiJ], who helped with writing Obama’s [Cairo] speech. Mogahed is herself an Islamic ideologue who supports Islamic Sharia and denies any connection between radical Islam and terrorism. Mogahed, who was born in Egypt, has also been a firm defender of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Both of these US groups are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.

As an American of Egyptian origin myself, I can tell who is a reformist and who is a radical Muslim sympathizer, and I do not think that Ms. Mogahed’s views are in any way supportive of a reformation in Islam or of its concept of jihad. To the contrary, she denies the existence of any problem with Islamic ideology and she acts in total harmony with the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood. Her excuses are the same old excuses we Egyptians learned day in and day out in defense of Islamic jihad and in blaming others for misunderstanding of Islam. Her answers are always given with total confidence and conviction, as she tells her audience that any violent actions by Muslims have nothing to do with Islam. Never mind that Islamic mosques, education, art and songs all glorify jihad as a holy war for the sake of Allah.

Mogahed brings nothing new to Islamic propaganda but she certainly sounds interesting to Americans who are unfamiliar with this same old Islamic propaganda and who find it hard to question a religion. The truth about Mogahed is that she combines the good old Muslim sheikhs rhetoric with a better presentation that Americans can understand. Sheikhs never take any kind of criticism of Islam and they ridicule those who question Islam with statements like: “Who are you to speak for Islam? Leave the analysis to the experts on Islam.” Mogahed’s logic is very similar and, coincidentally, her book is entitled: “Who Speaks for Islam.” It is a meaningless title showing statistics that are designed to show that Muslims are different and are not all terrorists, which is no news.


The empowerment of Radical Islam under the Obama administration has also emboldened the Muslim Student Association (MSA), which is merely an extension of the Muslim Brotherhood. The MSA has recently accelerated their efforts to silence any speakers who criticize jihad, Sharia or Radical Islam. Anti-Semitism is on the rise on our college campus, resulting in total disregard for freedom of speech aiming and the silencing of any pro-Israel speakers. This is achieved through constant unruly disruptions, such as what happened to the Ambassador of Israel, Michael Oren, at UC Irvine last February. Last October, students opposed to my views went as far as setting a fire in a bathroom next to the hall I was supposed to give my presentation in at Boston University. As a result, my lecture was cancelled.

To show more support to the Muslim brotherhood, last January, Secretary of State Clinton quietly signed an order admitting entry to the US to the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Tariq Ramadan. The controversial Ramadan was formerly banned from entering the US by the previous administration. Among those who welcomed Ramada and participated in his first public appearance in the US was none other than Dalia Mogahed.

While the Obama administration went out of its way to show goodwill to radical Muslim groups, it has consistently ignored extending any support to the reform movements across the Middle East and that includes the student reform movement in Iran. The message from the US to reformists and pro-democracy and peace groups in the Middle East is not encouraging.
Read the whole thing. We're only 15 months into the Obama administration and it already looks like it will take years to undo the damage.

Obama and the Clintons (Bill and Hillary) are marching to the tune of the Muslim world in general and the Arab League in particular these days.

Obama getting cozy with the Muslim Brotherhood is no surprise at all in light of his behavior since he took office. Mahmoud Abbas was the first foreign leader he called after becoming the new U.S. President.

When Hillary Clinton was all aglow after spending 45 minutes dressing down Netanyahu on the telephone and proclaiming shortly thereafter that "pressure" on Israel was "paying off" -- she took this specific opportunity to flirt openly with Hamas about their possible involvement in the "peace process." She was playing to the Arab street in this performance.

More recently, Bill Clinton was almost shaking with excitement when describing his support for his failed peace plan being revitalized by Obama, if this happens.

Bill Clinton actually claimed that the "all Arabs" would identify with Israel if a peace deal is signed. He claimed that the Arabs would turn from oil to ideas in the process of embracing Israel.

Sometimes, the Saudis do describe Israel as being welcome in the Arab League if Israel signs the Saudi Peace Initiative -- but it isn't rocket science to understand what they mean when they say this.

What they're actually saying is that they expect Israel to be replaced by an Arab majority nation living under Arab rule if Israel goes for the Saudi Peace Initiative.

This is all bad.

Obama is allegedly disappointed with Netanyahu for not going against his own government coalition to do Obama's bidding. Obama has probably seen the polls taken in Israel where 91% of the people don't want Israel's government to go along with an Obama forced peace plan, but this is meaningless to Obama who already has a history of ramming horrible and extremely unpopular legislation down the American people's throats. He can't wait to do it again, in fact, while he openly works to bankrupt the U.S.

Obama expects Bibi to ram Obama's wishes down Israeli throats, too, for the sake of another boost to Obama's ego.

This is all very bad and it will definitely take years to undo the damage that Obama is doing.

Battle of the Babies, by Eric Kaufmann; suggests that by 2050 American Muslims will displace Jews as the (by then) fourth largest religious group in America. The decline in the American Jewish population will be thanks to the religion's growing embrace of the secular world.

Kaufmann suggests that Israel's Charedi community will dominate the country by 2050.

If you think the Obama policies are bad now, wait 15 more months.

What could go wrong indeed

The first thing I noticed was the photo of that woman; her face is distorted with hate, like all these muslims. It is difficult to avoid looking at them, but dreadful. Same with Obama: before the election he was all smiles, now the mask is gone and the hatred plain for all to see. It is having a devastating effect on people.

I have to control myself not to feel the same. I don't ever want to be like them.

I listened to a US news video last night, and someone said that Tariq Ramadan's father was paid by the CIA at that time, to arrange the murders of moderate muslim leaders and spokespeople in the Middle East
