Crush ’em 11

We do not think that Obama wants to appease the Muslim Brotherhood. We think he wants to encourage and promote that evil organization. Wants to, and does. He admits its members as advisers into US government departments. He continues to try to restore them to power in Egypt when clearly a majority of Egyptians want them gone. He had helped them get into power there in the first place.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the creator of Hamas, so no doubt he wants Hamas to be victorious too – and that means against Israel. It is also the parent of al-Qaeda, and Obama is helping al-Quaeda “rebels” win in Syria by arming them. Sure he finally let bin Laden get bumped off. Sure he lets drones kill other al-Qaeda leaders. Doing all that is excellent cover for pursuing his chosen mission – helping the Muslim Brotherhood win worldwide.

But the Muslim Brotherhood must not win. It would be an excellent thing if the Egyptian military were to crush the Brotherhood there where the monster was born, destroy it utterly, once and for all.

On this we are of one mind with Daniel Greenfield, who writes at Front Page:

Like all terrorist organizations, the Muslim Brotherhood has only one commodity to trade in. Blood.

In the war of ideas for the future of Egypt, the Brotherhood had nothing to offer but the blood of its followers and victims. It has no new ideas. It has no record of accomplishments. It has no vision for the future …

The outcome of any interaction with the Brotherhood could have been predicted from its motto; “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” 

In the streets of Egyptian cities, Muslim Brotherhood activists achieved their highest hope. They died in their Jihad against the liberal opposition and the military, fighting against human rights for women and Christians, against multi-party rule, freedom of speech, museums, libraries and the future in the way that the armies of Allah have died for over a thousand years.

Some died trying to kill Egyptian soldiers and police officers. Others were killed by their own people in order to maximize the death toll and spread shock and horror through the international community.

An old Arab tactic that – exploiting the conscience of others. And it goes on working!

For the wealthy titans of the Brotherhood, their followers are pawns to be disposed of, human shields for their political ambitions. The Muslim Brotherhood spent their blood generously during the clashes with Egyptian police the same way that Hamas and Hezbollah spill the blood of their own people.

What it bought with their blood is the outrage of the world. Terrorist organizations are one-trick ponies. They unleash horrifying violence, blame it on the brutality of the authorities and wait for the world to step in and apply pressure on whatever government they are trying to overthrow.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s leaders followed the oldest traditions of Islam by offering their followers paradise and atonement in exchange for unleashing their darkest passions. That the unleashing should have ended in hundreds of deaths is not at all unprecedented in the many wars and conflicts of Islam.

What any normal person would consider a massacre, the Muslim Brotherhood considers an opportunity.

The Muslim Brotherhood used the blood of its followers as currency to buy international outrage that will be used to pressure Egypt into releasing Brotherhood leaders like Morsi and and Khairat el-Shater. It wanted the clashes to be as ugly and bloody as possible. It wanted to outrage the world because it knew that was the speediest way of getting its leaders out of their prison cells and back into power.

These murderous tactics would be useless if the United States and Europe weren’t full of useful idiots and fellow travelers, in and out of the media, gasping at the carnage and demanding an immediate halt to the violence.

There is only one way to halt the violence and that is to crush the Muslim Brotherhood.

The calls for Brotherhood participation in an Egyptian government are senseless insanity. Is there room for a movement that seeks nothing but death in the ranks of any government? Should murderous madness on such a scale really be the currency that purchases power? …

Western governments fear escalation in Egypt. And that fear is the secret weapon of every terrorist group. The terrorist groups always escalate, spending their currency of blood cheaply to break the will of their enemies. The only way to break that cycle is to out-escalate them by showing that their currency of blood is worthless because the people and governments they are terrorizing will not be bent under its terrible weight.

Wars aren’t won through de-escalation, but through escalation. America lost in Afghanistan because it wasn’t willing to fight harder and bloodier than the Taliban. The Egyptian government has shown that it is willing to match the Muslim Brotherhood’s ruthlessness without backing down.

To reward the courage of the Egyptian soldiers and police who fought the Muslim Brotherhood in the streets by forcing their government to stand down and surrender to the terrorists who nearly turned Egypt into a second Iran is an unmitigated crime.

Fortunately, it is unlikely that the Muslim Brotherhood will be restored to power in Egypt. We hope it will become impossible.

    The Egyptian army, like the Algerian army before it, gives a lesson on how to deal with islamists, This is what we should have done in Iraq, what we should be doing now in Afghanistan and of course what Israel should be doing to Hamas and Hezbollah. GIVE WAR A CHANCE!

      Too right on everything but putting the US in the middle of other people’s fights. We should never have invaded Iraq or Afghanistan. Punitive attacks on Al-Qaeda plus dropping globalism were our best move. 9/11 happend because we had stuck our nose where it had no business and we were constantly getting into other people’s fights.

        Philo Vaihinger – please would you tell us what your credentials are so we’ll know whether to take your dogmatic statements about global jihad and the middle east seriously? How long have you been studying the issues? Have you published on any related subject?

        • Philo Vaihinger

          So you’re saying only certifiable experts can comment on your blog, if they disagree with you?

          What about those who agree?

          Do you demand to see their papers too?

          And are you an expert?

          Show me your papers please.

          No undocumented commentary allowed.

          • Jillian Becker

            People disagree (and agree) with me and each other all the time on this blog. But you made a statement denying that there is a global jihad underway. I want to know how you know that?

            And yes, I am an expert. I spent most of my working life studying and writing about terrorism and the Middle East. I directed an Institute devoted to the study of terrorism. I wrote at length about it – and about the Middle East. If someone tells me that something I know to be true is wrong, I want to know his sources and his credentials.

            Commentary is one thing. Ignorant outbursts in a spirit of aggression are another.

    Egypt did not belong to the US, and I would rather he did cut off the aid. But he is concerned about the region becoming less stable and more dangerous for Israel, as well as more a hotbed of Islamic resentment and terrorism. I think he should leave the region and let the locals sort it out, with or without European intervention. Yankee, come home.

    • Jillian Becker

      Obama is not in the least concerned about Israel except to hope for its destruction. The US had Egypt as an ally when Mubarak was dictator. He ordered Mubarak to step down. Stability? What stability can there be when Sunnis and Shiites are at war with each other, not just in Syria where the the war is most intense, but all over the Islamic world? Islamic terrorism does not arise from resentment. That is a Western illusion. It arises from a perception of opportunity – a weakly led America, a suicidal Europe, so let the jihad rip.

      The US is under attack by Islam. What should it do to defend itself? That is the burning question.

      • Philo Vaihinger

        That is a baseless and hateful slander of O, internal violence among Muslims is not our problem, and global Jihad is a bogey to frighten children.

        On the other hand, what happens to Israel is no more America’s problem than what happens in Bosnia or even Rwanda.

        And offering a “nuclear umbrella” to Israel paints a target on Chicago in return for no good to Chicago, at all.

        Chicago’s safety is our problem. Not Israel’s.

          I just found this in the Washington Post. It tells you just why Obama has not cancelled the $1.6 billion “aid” to Egypt:

          “A growing bipartisan chorus [of American politicians is] demanding an end to nearly $1.6 billion in annual U.S. assistance to Egypt, $1.3 billion of it used to finance purchases of American military equipment.”

          http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/with-egypt-obama-balances-short-term-wants-against-long-term-goals/2013/08/17/025cfe36-0695-11e3-9259-e2aafe5a5f84_story.html?wpisrc=nl_headlines

          Now about my hating Obama. Yes I do. Of course. Not personally – I don’t know him – but as the director of a government that has done great harm to America – and beyond – and will continue to do so over the next three years. Some of the harm may be irreparable.

          Global jihad is real. That is what 9/11 was about. Your denying it is all too typical of Western cowardice in refusing to face what is happening. Because of global jihad what happens in the Arab and Islamic worlds is of huge importance.

          I don’t know what Chicago has to do with any of this.

  • Philo Vaihinger

    O has so far not called the coup a coup to keep the aid flowing to the army.

    Trying not to hurt their chances and trying to avoid for them and for us denunciation as tyrants and American and Israeli stooges.

    • Jillian Becker

      Rather for leverage. But its a miscalculation. O has lost Egypt for the US.
