Obama Supports an Islamic Takeover in Egypt

While the rest of the U.S. government is clueless, deceived and blind to what the options are in Egypt, Obama knows exactly what he is doing.

By de Andréa

While most of the US fails to understand what will happen to its strategic interests in the region, if the Muslim Brotherhood is the power behind the throne of the next regime, Obama on the other hand, understands exactly what he is doing.

Jewishworldreview The Egyptian multitudes on the streets of Cairo are a stunning sight. With their banners calling for freedom and an end to the reign of President Hosni Mubarak the story these deceptive images tell, is a simple one, one as old as time.

In light of two previous articles that I posted The Muslim Brotherhood and Sleeper Cells in the USA I am following up with this op-ed.

Eighty two year old Muhammad Hosni Sayyid Mubarak and his regime certainly are corrupt and tyrannical. Since the Muslim Brotherhood spin-off, the Islamic Jihad terror group murdered Mubarak's predecessor president Anwar Sadat in 1981, Egypt has been governed by so-called emergency laws that ban democratic freedoms. Mubarak, in spite of American support, has consistently rejected US pressure to ease regime repression and enact democratic reforms in governance. This reality has led many American commentators across the political spectrum to ignorantly side enthusiastically with the rioters.

The west hasn’t a clue.
A prestigious think tank on Egyptian politics that was formed in recent months by so-called Middle East experts from Left and Right, issued a statement over the weekend calling for the Obama administration to dump Mubarak and withdraw its support for the Egyptian regime. It recommended further that the administration force Mubarak to abdicate his regime to fall by suspending all economic and military assistance to Egypt for the duration. This panel of clueless expert recommendations was applauded by its members' and many friends across the political spectrum. For instance, the conservative Weekly Standard's editor William Kristol praised the panel on Sunday and wrote, "It's time for the US government to take an active role to bring about a South Korea/Philippines/Chile-like transition in Egypt, from an American-supported dictatorship to an American-supported and popularly legitimate liberal democracy."

The problem with this recommendation is that it is based entirely on the nature of Mubarak's regime. If the regime were the biggest problem, then certainly removing US support for it would make sense. However, the character of the protesters is not freedom and democracy, ‘their character’ is a bigger problem than the character of the regime they seek to overthrow. This will form yet another Islamic State in the never-ending agenda of a “WORLD NATION OF ISLAM”

Here are the statistics.
According to a Pew opinion survey of Egyptians from June 2010, 59 percent said they back Islamists. Only 27% said they back modernizers. Half of Egyptians support Hamas. Thirty percent support Hizbullah and 20% support al Qaida. Moreover, 95% of them would welcome Islamic influence over their politics.

When this preference is translated into actual government policy, it is clear that the Islam they support is the al Qaida Salafist version. Eighty two percent of Egyptians support executing adulterers by stoning, 77% support whipping and cutting the hands off thieves. 84% support executing any Muslim who changes his religion.

What all of this makes clear is that if the regime falls, the successor regime will not be a free democracy. Mubarak's military authoritarianism will be replaced by Islamic tyranny and barbaric Sharia law. The US's greatest Arab ally will become its greatest enemy. And Israel's peace partner will once again become its gravest foe.

The US policy towards Egypt is dictated by the irrational narcissism of two opposing sides to a policy debate that has nothing to do with reality. Sometimes the enemy of my enemy should be my friend. If that sounds like the lesser of two evils, then that’s exactly what it is.

Add to that Obama's electoral concern about looking like he is on the right side of justice and we have a US policy, that may be part of Obama’s agenda, but is wholly antithetical to US interests.

This presents a daunting, perhaps insurmountable challenge for the US's remaining authoritarian Arab allies. In Jordan and Saudi Arabia, until now restive publics have been fearful of opposing their leaders because the US supports them. Now that the US is abandoning its most important ally and siding with its worst enemies, the Hashemites and the Sauds don't look so powerful to their Arab neighbors. The same can be said for the Kuwaiti leadership and the pro-American political forces in Iraq. The apathetic stance of the U.S. will be interpreted as weakness to the Islmic Nations; moreover it will provide a log on the fire that rages in their spirit.

As Prof. Barry Rubin wrote this week, "There is no good policy for the United States regarding the uprising in Egypt but the Obama administration may be adopting something close to the worst option." Unfortunately, given the cluelessness of the US foreign policy debate, this situation is only likely to grow worse.

What has most confounded Israeli officials and commentators alike has ‘not’ been the strength of the anti-regime protests, but the American response to them. Outside of the deceived far Left, commentators from all other major newspapers, radio and television stations have variously characterized the US response to events in Egypt as irrational, irresponsible, catastrophic, stupid, blind, treacherous, and terrifying.

They have pointed out that the Obama administration's behavior — as well as that of many of its prominent conservative critics — is liable to have disastrous consequences for the U.S.'s other authoritarian Arab allies, for Israel and for the US itself. What they have ignorantly pointed out, is that those disastrous consequences are exactly what Obama wants.

The question most Israelis are asking is, why are the Americans behaving so destructively? Why are President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton charting a course that will obviously lead to the transformation of Egypt into the first Salafist Islamic theocracy? And why are even the conservative commentators and Republican politicians urging them to be even more outspoken in their support for the rioters in the streets?

Does the U.S. not understand what will happen in the region as a result of its actions? Does the U.S. really fail to understand what will happen to its strategic interests in the Middle East if the Muslim Brotherhood either forms the next regime or is the power behind the throne of the next regime in Cairo?

Distressingly, the answer is, while Obama knows exactly what he is doing which is to treasonously aid the Nation of Islam whenever and wherever he can, the rest of the US has no idea what it is doing. The reason the world's only (quickly declining) superpower is flying blind is because its leaders are deceived and/or trapped between two irrational, narcissistic policy paradigms and they can't see their way past them.

The first model is former president George W. Bush's democracy agenda and its concomitant support for open elections.
Bush supporters and former administration officials have spent the last month since the riots began in Tunisia crowing that events prove Bush's push for democratization in the Arab world is the correct approach.
The problem is that while Bush's diagnosis of the dangers of the democracy deficit in the Arab world was correct, his antidote for solving this problem was completely wrong. Bush was right that tyranny breeds terrorism and instability and is therefore dangerous for the US. But his belief that free elections in a Muslim world would solve the problem of Arab radicalism and instability was completely wrong. At best, Bush's belief was based on a narcissistic view of Western values as universally desirable.
They are not, as the photo illustrates.
When, due to U.S. pressure, the Palestinians were given the opportunity to vote in open and free elections in 2006, they voted for Hamas and its totalitarian agenda. When due to U.S. pressure, the Egyptians were given limited freedom to choose their legislators in 2005, where they could, they elected the totalitarian Muslim Brotherhood to lead them.

What America and the west needs, is to comprehend that Islam is not a religion; peaceful or otherwise, it is instead, a ‘Psychopathic Supremacists Ideological Theocracy’. Not unlike Nazism.

The failure of Bush’s elections policy, convinced him of his mistake, and to end his support for Middle East elections in his last two years in office.
As Obama put it at the time, "It's not productive, given the history of US-Iranian relations, to be seen as meddling, the US president meddling in the Iranian elections."

Well then Obama, why are we still trying to establish meddling democracies in Iraq and Afghanistan before we have even won the war?

It is Obama’s Muslim agenda and this anti-colonialist paradigm that has guided this courtship of Islam, in the Syrian, Turkish, and Iranian regimes, and his unwillingness to lift a hand to help the March 14 anti-Islamic movement in Lebanon against Hisbala.

Since the paradigm ignorantly claims that the non-Western world's grievances towards the West are legitimate, Obama's Middle East policy is based on the view that the best way to impact the Arab world is by joining its campaign of extermination against Israel. This was the central theme of Obama's speech before an audience dominated by Muslim Brotherhood members in Cairo in June 2009, where Obama claimed that America was no longer a Christian Nation but is the largest Muslim Nation in the world and that he is one of them.

The American people today support a president during a world war with Islam who is an admitted Muslim. Where is our Western ability to reason, think logically or to be rational?

This is truly tantamount to supporting a president during the world war with Germany in the 1940’s who was an admitted Nazi. Then --- somehow for some reason we had the ability to reason, think logically, and be rational. Where de we go wrong, when and why have we totally lost are minds. This war is not against a people but an evil ideology.

Like the pro-democracy model, the anti-colonialist paradigm is narcissistic. Whereas Western democracy champions believe that all people are born with the same Western liberal democratic values, post-colonialists believe that non-Westerners are nothing more than victims of the West.

THE BOTTOM LINE: We are not going to change them. While everyone in the world deserves to be free, contrary to the Western ideal, not everyone wants to be free. If one is robotically programmed with a slave mentality then one will want to be a slave, if for no other reason than familiarity.

Muslims from birth are indoctrinated with the Islamic ideology, they grow up with the Islmic ideology, and they live the Islmic ideology. We in the West will not change them just because we ignorantly believe that everyone in their right mind wants to be free.

Even when thrust into a free society or culture, they, unlike any other immigrants, do not assimilate into it. They instead relentlessly propagate and reproduce their own supremacist theocracy within the host culture until the historical culture has become Islamic.

No amount of reasoning, logic or rationalizing will deter the Muslim community from their agenda of world domination. Although unthinkable and impossible, total containment or the extreme act of total eradication is the only solution to ridding the world of this evil satanic and destructive attack on any and every intellectually and religiously free society in the world. In the mean time we walk a tight rope between a”rock and a hard place”.

We continue to look at Islam through Western eyes.
A little walk in the woods of prospectiveity might be in order. If we remain stuck in our Western rational stubborn ways of logic and reason and continue to stand in a place unwilling to see Islam for what it really is, then we will enable it. Moreover, it will surreptitiously and incrementally, devour us.

We certainly will not defeat an enemy we flatly refuse to look at or identify, and if we continue to blindly refuse to discover who this enemy is, the freedom of Judeo-Christian culture in the West will not survive…

Well written Andrea, this is exactly what is happening. If i understand this correctly, the Muslim Brotherhood do not have a majority in Egypt. There are many political parties. In your view would the Brotherhood have control of the gov't?
