REGIME: ‘ENGAGED WITH ALL PARTIES THAT ARE COMMITTED TO DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES’
The Obama Regime welcomed representatives of The Muslim Brotherhood to the White House earlier this week. The next day, a rocket fired from Egypt slammed into Israel. Doesn’t show much respect for – or fear of – the O-man, huh?
Fortunately, no Israelis were hurt or killed in the blast. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the future security of the Jewish state in Barack Obama’s Middle East; this should come as a surprise to no one.
The rocket, which was fired from Egypt’s Sinai peninsula, landed in the southern city of Eilat as thousands of Israelis congregated in the resort town for the Jewish holiday of Passover. Zero kills. Bummer, Egypt – better luck next time.
Following the White House meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood, officials of the Regime were quick to point out that Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain had also met with Brotherhood representatives in Egypt and elsewhere in recent months.
Memo to the Regime: Meetings between “Senators” and radical organizations in “Egypt and elsewhere” send entirely different signals than do meetings with Regime officials – in the White House.
Here’s National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor:
“We believe that it is in the interest of the United States to engage with all parties that are committed to democratic principles, especially nonviolence. In all our conversations with these groups, we emphasize the importance of respect for minority rights, the full inclusion of women, and our regional security concerns.”
Seriously, Tommy? Do “democratic principles” include the Brotherhood being honest with the Egyptian people? Apparently, not so much – according to Ahmed Awes: “The main reason I don’t support the Brotherhood anymore is because they say something and do something else.” The fact is, Ahmed’s concerns are shared by many Egyptians these days, Tommy. Perhaps you should alert the O-man – although I’m sure he doesn’t give a damn what Ahmed thinks.
The Brotherhood’s political arm, (one wonders what other “arms” exist), the “Freedom” and “Justice” Party, said on Saturday it would nominate Khairat al-Shater – a professor of engineering and successful businessman – to contest Egypt’s first presidential election since the Arab “Spring” ousting of Hosni Mubarak last year. (I’m guessing al-Shater’s hatred of Israel holds more sway with the O-man than does his one apparent flaw: being a successful businessman.)
The Islamists, who control parliament, have repeatedly pledged not to put forward a member for the election in order to mitigate fears that they are trying to monopolize power. Oh well.
Wait – I get it! O’s trying to monopolize power too! No wonder he loves these guys so much!
See what can happen when we all work together, America? That damn George Bush.
