(Islamist) ElBaradei relates Muslim Brotherhood to U.S. evangelicals and orthodox Jews in JerusaleTopics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Remember, this is the very same Muslim Brotherhood whose motto clearly states, "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."
It's also the very same Muslim Brotherhood whose strategic goal was stated in 1991 by Mohamed Akram to "work toward 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 and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions." (see Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America) (Hat tip - Robert Spencer).
Does any of this sound like anything you've ever heard from U.S. evangelicals and orthodox Jews in Jerusalem? Yet Egyptian opposition leader and Nobel prize winner Mohamed Elbaradei relates the Islamist group to them:
ElBaradei said that the fear a post-Mubarak Egypt would turn into another Islamic fundamentalist country like Iran "was a myth that was sold by the Mubarak regime" to keep the support of Western governments.Off-hand I'd say that that "Islamic "flirtation that wasn't" ... indeed was all along existent and growing .... and Mohamed ElBaradei's long-growing ties to the Muslim Brotherhood show that he is at his core - an Islamist.
He said the Muslim Brotherhood, which had the largest organized opposition to the government, did not pose the threat of turning Egypt into another Iran.
"This is totally bogus, "ElBaradei said. "They are no way extremists. They are no way using violence. They are not a majority of the Egyptian people. They will not be more than maybe 20 percent of the Egyptian people. You have to include them like, you know, new evangelical, you know, groups in the U.S., like the orthodox Jews in Jerusalem."
If it isn't yet clear from this post, let me make it perfectly clear. I don't trust ElBaradei now, and never did during the entire time he was helping Iran stall for time to develop its nuclear program. As Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice-president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, aptly points out, ElBaradei is nothing less than an Iranian stooge. Truth be known, ElBaradei is an Islamist now, has always been an Islamist, and the Western world has long been a fool to have trusted him. The Egyptian people should realize that he will be the beginning of an Islamist Egypt.
Meanwhile, the Egyptian army says it will not use force against protesters
