With Mubarak out of the door in Egypt, and Gadaffi’s Libya threatening to erupt into civil war, the Muslim Brotherhood has been rubbing their hands together like a greedy union boss bargaining a tax payer funded pension plan.
Now as it stands, the Muslim Brotherhood is still banned within Egypt, but that has not stopped them from trying to form their own political party known as the “Freedom and Justice” party. It’s a much better choice than the “Oppressive Sharia Law Enthusiast” party. As well, the “Freedom and Justice” party claims it will be completely independent from the Muslim Brotherhood. You have to watch that Brotherhood, they really know how to pull a fast one.
Along with their spiffy new party name, the Muslim Brotherhood has promised to go against its very favorite thing to do and that is attack Israel in any way. You can’t ask an Islamic man to be friendly with a Jewish man (or especially woman), it’s like putting a gazelle and a lion in the same room and saying “now you two deny everything you know and play nice”. It should also be known that the Brotherhood has ties to Hamas, and many experts agree that they are one and the same.
(I’ve written a previous blog concerning Israel and Hamas. You can read it here)
YUSUF AL-QARADAWI, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD: “Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the Jews people who would punish them for their corruption…The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them…Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers.”
That was Al-Qaradawi, a clerical leader and unofficial “Father” of the Muslim Brotherhood, who was banned from Egypt 30 years ago and returned to lead prayers in Tahrir square once Mubarak was ousted. This same figurehead of the Muslim Brotherhood has, in the past two years:
– Called on Muslims to acquire nuclear weapons “to terrorize their enemies.”
– Called jihad an Islamic moral duty and said Muslims are permitted to kill Israeli women because they serve in the army.
– Affirmed his support for suicide bombings.
– Called the Holocaust a divine punishment of Jews
– Wished for the opportunity to kill a Jew before his death.
Despite the crystal clear need for Israeli blood the Muslim Brotherhood has kept a low profile and seeks to sneak its way into Egypt’s political stage by assuring Egyptians that it wants nothing more than peace which is a hard stance to maintain when you have had a “kill everyone” twitch for the past thousand years.
Egypt was a close ally to Israel, and with its allies taking a much lighter approach to Iran these days, and the Muslim Brotherhood issuing fatwas for the Islamic peoples to rise up in Libya, (Fatwa- a legal pronouncement in Islam, issued by a religious law specialist on a specific issue.) it’s not looking safe outside its boarders.
What this means for America
I think any right minded (and I use the word “right” politically) person would agree by now that the Islamic sect of the Muslim faith are out to kill us, both by publicly stating it, and carrying out terrorist acts such as stuffing a bomb down their underoos in the name of Allah. Despite all this, the left try to treat Islamic radicals like they don’t exist and try to reassure anyone who will listen that there is no “bogyman” in the closet, and when something does inevitably happen the most they can come up with is “well it’s your fault for being a hatemongering, fat, American”.
If only we can get rid of that Tea Party, the terrorists will drop everything and it will all be rainbows and unicorn giggles.
Meanwhile, in the real world, Israel is fighting off a nearly all sides battle to keep terrorist organizations and their ilk from running wild. Since they are our only solid ally in the region it is very important that we help keep them afloat. They are on a face to face basis with their enemies, and between Hamas launching rockets into Israeli cities like it’s a national past time, and Palestinians planning events such as “The Day of Rage” to stop Israeli settlements from being built on Israeli land, they have a hard enough time on their own.
They are the front line against our Middle Eastern enemies, and we should treat them as such. Any lasting peace in that region will come from a well armed, well defended Israel.
Should Israel fail and our influence in the middle east whither as a result, you would see a mass uniting of Middle Eastern states under Islamic rule which would then increase not only terrorist attacks against other countries such as the US and Britain, but also the much larger threat of a slide out of our own social structure due to severely increased Islamic influence brought about by what is known as a “Stealth Jihad”.
A report issued from a panel of national security analysts and sponsored by the Center for Security Policy explains Stealth Jihad:
“This form of warfare includes multi-layered cultural subversion, the co-opting of senior leaders, influence operations and propaganda and other means of insinuating Shariah into Western societies,”
This same report went on to put the Muslim Brotherhood as the number one player in pushing this agenda, and do not think that their waiting for a middle east takeover to start their agenda. They already work to bring about their stealth jihad through such organizations as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Student Association, and the Islamic Society of North America.
Through these organizations, and in time, they hope to bring about an acceptance of Sharia law to the United States which will, in the end, help bring about a worldwide Muslim state called a “Caliphate”. You see, while their physical terrorist attacks cause fear, it is their long term goals that are much more frightening.
“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [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…”

How to win
Well for one we can start calling things for what they really are. Calling a German Sheppard a Chihuahua doesn’t negate the fact that it could rip your arm off and calling terrorism “man caused disasters” doesn’t change the fact that a group of people were planning, are planning, and will further plan to kill you. Awareness is key in any battle, so put your ear to the ground and keep your eyes open.
We’ve seen from the Tea Party alone how well the American people can mobilize and work together when our way of life is threatened, and with a liberal government not supporting our Israeli allies without and the Muslim Brotherhood working from within, it’s up to us to take a stand. Call them out and don’t be afraid. Remember, they want us subjugated or dead, but that can only happen if we let them.
Elect leaders who don’t cater to the global opinion. It’s as simple as that. We need strong supporters of Israel and people who aren’t afraid to take a stand against our enemies. Our current administration seeks to tip toe around the subject, and ignoring a problem has never ever solved it.
Finally we need to increase our understanding. Not all Muslims believe as the radicals do, and in fact some outright condemn it. These people in particular need to be supported if we are to exemplify the values of the United States and stand solidly against the Sharia agenda.
We are a free nation, and because of this there will always be a group of people who think they know how to rule you better than you do, ready to break down your door and make you do it. Whether it be a liberal group looking to tax you into submission or a religious extremist seeking to force you into their laws, as long as you have the will to stand up and fight they will fail like Christina Aguilera singing the national anthem. In the words of one of my favorite radio show hosts “We’re right. They’re wrong. End of story.”
