Mr. Clapper wishes us to believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is a benign organization which has "eschewed violence" and now is so overcome with liberal democratic values that we should not be suspicious or afraid. However, the evidence forces us to believe the exact opposite. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), The Muslim Student Association (MSA) and a host of others are all fronts of the Muslim Brotherhood which seeks to establish relations and influence in our local, state and federal governments, in our law enforcement and intelligence communities, in our military, in our prisons, in the media, in our schools and in our universities.
The creed of the Muslim Brotherhood clearly states: "God is our objective; the Koran is our law; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations." Perhaps if Director Clapper labored deep into the night and applied some arcane cipher he could discover this really means: "Oh, what a friend we have in Jesus", but somehow I doubt it. Even the most amateur code-breaker would never mistake "jihad" for croquet or "death for the sake of Allah..." for, "Tennis anyone?"
In 2008 the Holy Land Foundation, a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood, was convicted of raising money for the terrorist group Hamas, yet one more wholly owned subsidiary of the The Muslim Brotherhood. Its leaders were given life sentences for funneling $12 million to Hamas. During the trial documents revealed a strategy paper which stated:
"The Ikhwan (Arabic for Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions."It went on to say that this process requires a "mastery of the art of 'coalitions', the art of 'absorption' and the principles of 'cooperation'." In other words the scheme is to ingratiate and insinuate themselves into our society by appearing to be in favor of pluralism, democratic values, common fellowship all the time gaining trust and acceptance only to sucker punch us when the time is right. The Muslim Brotherhood is black with menace. Their hatred of America and the West is doctrinally inspired and is entirely due to religious fanaticism. Let that be realized. All of their front organizations are deliberately designed to hide the wolf in sheep's clothing.
It is fair to say the the Muslim Brotherhood knows just as much about its goals, aspirations and intentions as Director Clapper so why would he appear before Congress and make such disingenuous statements that mischaracterize the true nature of the Muslim Brotherhood? With the enormous amount of information and sensitive intelligence at his disposal how could he fail to see the true nature of the threat we face? For the answer one need look no farther than the Oval Office. Between President Obama and Director Clapper it is not necessary to distinguish who is the organ-grinder and who is the monkey. Director Clapper is just one more pawn in Barack Obama's steadfast devotion to the cultural Marxism of political correctness who is duly dispatched to anesthetize us against the relentless march of Islamic totalitarianism disguising its dark underside and blunting its jagged edges in order to make it appear less menacing to us.
This has been a steady objective of Obama's administration which from the start has been a moving curtain of lies. Americans thought they had elected a president who would safeguard America's security and defend her interests. Instead they woke up with a Muslim inclined political Pinocchio who actually prefers America's enemies to her friends. The Wikileaks revelations show the fundamentally dishonest nature of Obama's relations towards Israel and how he sought to convince the Israelis that concessions about settlements and Jerusalem would have to be made in order to mollify the Arab world so that their support against Iran could be obtained. However, the Arab world was desperately trying to get Obama to move against Iran regardless of the situation between Israel and the Palestinians. The Arabs hate Israel but they are terrified of Iran.
Obama also demonstrated his ideological preferences when he appointed Israel-bashing Samantha Power as Director of Multilateral Affairs for the National Security Council and when he attempted to appoint anti-Israel Charles Freeman as Chairman of The National Intelligence Council. His first interview as president of the United States was given to Al Aribiya an Arab television station in Dubai. His first phone call as president was made to Mahmood Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority and a man who arranged the financing for the murderous attack on Israel's atheletes during the Munich Olympics and whose doctoral thesis was about Holocaust denial. One of his first presidential decisions was to order that captured terrorists be read Miranda rights. One of the first orders he signed was to close Guantanamo. He attempted to try the mastermind of 9/11 and self-confessed butcher of Daniel Pearl, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in a civil court in New York and accord him every Constitutional protection. Last July he gave approval to the PLO to fly their flag over its Mission in Washington DC and upgraded its status to that of a delegation which gives PA officials diplomatic immunity and the status that is attached to it. Abbas pocketed this concession but still failed to arrest terrorists or end the incitement of violence and hatred towards Jews. Despite receiving between $600 million and $1 billion in American aid during the last two years the PA has not altered its behaviour proving that U.S. aid and concessions do not help to moderate the PA or act as incentives for moderation.
Yet Obama persists in feeding the dog that bites us. During the riots by Iranians in the streets of Tehran after Ahmedinejad stole the election in 2009 the leader of the free world, Barack Hussein Obama, could only bring himself to say that it would be unwise for America to interfere. Not one utterance of moral support or a clarion call for liberty passed his lips. Subsequently over 4,000 Iranians fled to Turkey and more than 150 were executed according to Amnesty International. Unlike Ahmedinejad, who threatens to destroy America and wipe Israel off the face of the map, President Mubarak who had been an ally of America and maintained a cold peace with Israel for over 30 years was unceremoniously dumped and told he "must go now" for the sake of a peaceful transition to democracy. In the meantime, the charming anti-American cadre of subversives and FOO (Friends of Obama), Rashid Khalidi, Bill Ayres, Bernardine Dohrn, and Code Pink's Jodie Evans have been travelling to Egypt and Gaza meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist killers, trying to organize a second flotilla to break the naval blockade of Gaza and visiting the White House to report to their master.
Our friends, a diminishing band, are now beginning to think that being America's ally is much more dangerous than being America's enemy. Since coming to power Obama has alienated Great Britain, betrayed Poland and Czechoslovakia and intrigued against Israel. A few days ago the people who were demonstrating in Tahrir Square and some 81 million other Egyptians, who were being cheered on by the Obama administration and the western media, woke up to find Mubarak gone and the Egyptian military in charge. This does not a Jeffersonian democracy make. History teaches us that in this kind of situation it is usually the group which is the most cohesive and best organized that eventually grabs power. It is Egypt's misfortune that this is the Muslim Brotherhood. It is likely that by using democratic means they will, as their surrogate Hamas has done in Gaza, treat Egyptians to one man, one vote, one time. It will be easy to vote them in and almost impossible to vote them out and that is when it will dawn on the western democracies that Obama's pro Muslim, anti-colonial ideology and hatred of American exceptionalism is no substitute for a foreign policy.
