“An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”
— Sir Winston Churchill
Welcome to the new and improved Egypt—via the Muslim Brotherhood.
Mohamed Ghanem, one of the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, calls Egypt to stop pumping gas to Israel and prepare the Egyptian army for a war with it’s eastern neighbor.
Speaking with Iranian television station Al-Alam, Mohamed Ghanem blamed Israel for supporting Hosni Mubarak’s regime. Ghanem also said that the Egyptian police and army won’t be able to stop the Muslim Brotherhood movement.
Full story here.
The Egyptian military has received billions in aid from America but the army, air force and navy are in shambles. Their equipment is rusting, corruption is endemic in the officer corps, and most soldiers don’t have a decent supply of ammunition because most of it gets siphoned off into the black market. The Egyptians couldn’t fight a six-hour war against Israel much less a six day war. The MB is just revving their base and no doubt, with Iranian proxies Hamas and Hizbullah, the terrorist war against Israel/Jews will only intensify.
Here’s what to expect: In the name of democracy and real politik Obama will accept the Muslim Brotherhood’s presence in a new government coalition headed by Iranian shill turned MB shill Mohammed El Baradei. But only—to show how tough he is—in exchange for some cosmetic changes in the MB’s genocidal and heartfelt language. The MB, whose roots are in Nazism, will hem and haw, pretend they have moderated their promise to destroy Israel and every Jew on the face of the earth—not to mention the Coptic Christian minority in Egypt—and then, before you know it, Egypt will be transformed into a Sunni Islamic theocracy modeled on Shia Iran, and funded by 2 billion in yearly American aid.
Isn’t it great that we have a POTUS who really, really understands the Muslim world.
In fact, Obama is poised to repeat Jimmy Carter’s catastrophic handling of Iran in 1978-79. And this makes perfect sense, for Obama is Carter redux, but on an even grander and more inept level. Hard to accomplish, but what do you expect when you take a leftist community organizer and elevate him to the most powerful executive position in the world.
Pop Quiz: What should America do?
Answer: Make it quite clear that the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood, any and all jihadist gangs, in a new Egyptian government coalition is unacceptable and will result in the immediate suspension of all American aid.
It is that simple, and that complicated.
Meanwhile, Israel has been hit by Grad rockets from Gaza.
And here we go in the new Tunisia: A synagogue torched.
