Meanwhile, the Obama administration will not condemn the Muslim Brotherhood for sympathizing with terrorists within that organization.
An Israeli scholar said the situation has not improved since Mohammed Morsi’s ouster by the Egyptian military.
The Free Beacon reported: Lawmakers in both houses of Congress filed legislation on Tuesday that would formally designate the Muslim Brotherhood a sanctioned terrorist organization, according to an advance copy of the legislation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The legislation outlines the Brotherhood’s long history of sponsoring terrorism and outlines congressional support for it to be […]
The ousted political party/terrorist group calls for the overthrow of the military-backed government. Back to their normal operations pre-Arab Spring, it seems.
It may sound like a fringe conspiracy, but it isn’t. Obama has not been kind to anti-Muslim Brotherhood movements, such as the military coup that ousted the unpopular and divisive leader in Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi. The Brotherhood is considered a national security threat by some experts.
Egypt’s deposed president, Mohammed Morsi, will be executed. As Fox News said: “An Egyptian court on Saturday sentenced ousted President Mohammed Morsi to death over his part in a mass prison break that took place during the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.”
He was sentenced to prison for connections to the deaths of protesters in 2012, where his Islamist supporters said it was a terrible decision to do so.
The restriction of sending military aid to Egypt occurred after the Muslim Brotherhood was removed from power by a military coup in 2013, regardless of the reality that the Muslim Brotherhood was further ruining the country’s economy and the stability in the region. Thanks, Obama.
It’s not the first time that the State Department has misled the liberal mainstream media, who was too eager to dismiss the visit as a normal visit. But, to invite allies of the ousted Muslim Brotherhood government and seemingly flaunt it before the current Egyptian government? That’s bold.
Instead of supporting the current, anti-Islamist Egyptian government under al-Sisi, the State Department hosted Muslim Brotherhood allies this past week. That’s not sending the right signals, but that’s how this administration rolls.
