CHARLOTTE, NC, January 20, 2015 – The debate continues regarding why the Obama administration cannot bring itself to use the term “Islamic extremism.”
Meanwhile Egypt continues to provide some answers.
In the country where the Muslim Brotherhood was born, President Abdel el-Sisi of Egypt is sending strong warnings to the West that should be resonating rather than falling on deaf ears.
Concern should be rampant about some the major players that are infiltrating the United States. Several were listed as unindicted co-conspirators by the Justice Department in a trial against the Holy Land Foundations; the Islamic Society of North America, the North American Islamic Trust and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). All have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
CAIR perpetuates its moderate image throughout the United States though it is anything but “moderate.” In fact, CAIR, as well as the Muslim Brotherhood and similar groups in the U.S., are influencing policies in numerous areas. Among CAIR’s current projects is a campaign to force the media to stop using the term “Islamist.” Sound familiar?
In addition, the Obama administration has no less than six top advisors in the White House who are card-carrying Muslim Brotherhood members; Arif Alikhan, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Mohammed Elibiary, Homeland Security Advisor who is an Islamic cleric and admirer of Ayatollah Khomeini, Rashad Hussain, Deputy Assistant Councel to Barack Obama is a Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), Salam al-Marayati, Obama adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Imam Mohamed Magid, Barack Obama’s Sharia Czar from the Islamic Society of North America, Eboo Patel, Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
And, of course, we have a president of the United States with a Muslim name who has Islamic family ties.
Now let’s ask the question again, just exactly why is it that Barack Obama cannot use the terms “Islamic extremism” or “Islamist”?
How ironic that the warnings to the West are suddently coming from Egypt. In a study conducted by the Ibn Khaldoun Center for Development Studies in Cairo, the executive director, Dalia Zeyadah, said that the Muslim Brotherhood has established a network in the United States and operates through community service organizations. Using that as a front, their purpose is to spread the extremist philosophies of the Muslim Brotherhood.
President el-Sisi went even further saying the MB is intent on “restoring the Islamic religious empire.”
Different methods than ISIS perhaps, but the agenda is the same.
Remember how Barack Obama, the fresh new face on the American political scene, was teased by his opponents for being a “community organizer”? Now look at the term “community service organizations” and ask yourself if you see a connection.
Is it any wonder that Barack Obama, and his underlings including Joe Biden, John Kerry and his press secretary among others, would have such a strong aversion to using a term and/or discussing a problem that is killing innocent people by the hundreds daily in various parts of the world?
If the president himself has six high level Muslim Brotherhood members advising him, there can be little doubt that the MB is subliminally spreading its toxic message freely throughout the country? If the media will not report what is staring them in the face, there should be genuine concerns among the public that Islam is winning.
Leaked reports of some of the contents of the State of the Union speech add to the concern because much of what the president is proposing could further damage the economy.
Economic terrorism may not be as gory as beheadings and crucifixions, but it can be equally devastating.
Call it “Islamophobia” if you like, but amid all the applause and standing ovations in Washington, the American people need to wake up before the Brotherhood of Man yields to the Muslim Brotherhood.
