Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Candidate: Christians Should 'Convert, Pay Tribute, or Leave'Topics: Egypt, Political News and commentaries
Ah, the fruits of Obama's gift of 1.5 billion American taxpayer dollars to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood just keep coming. The latest is Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood candidate saying that Christians "Need to know that conquest is coming, that Egypt will be Islamic, and that they must pay jizya or emigrate."
Raymond Ibrahim writes:
According to the popular Egyptian website, El Bashayer, Muhammad Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate, just declared that he will "achieve the Islamic conquest (fath) of Egypt for the second time, and make all Christians convert to Islam, or else pay the jizya," the additional Islamic tax, or financial tribute, required of non-Muslims, or financial tribute.More here.
In a brief report written by Samuel al-Ashay and published by El Bashayer on May 27, Morsi allegedly made these comments while speaking with a journalist at the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, adding "We will not allow Ahmed Shafiq [his contending presidential candidate] or anyone else to impede our second Islamic conquest of Egypt."
After his interviewer pointed out that the first Muslim conquest of Egypt was "carried out at the hands of Amr bin al-As [in 641]," he asked Morsi, "Who will the second Islamic conqueror be?" Morsi, replied, "The second Muslim conqueror will be Muhammad Morsi," referring to himself, "and history will record it."
Meanwhile, Obama is backing the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria, as growing signs emerge that the Muslim Brotherhood is plotting to take over Jordan. The way things are going, Obama is sure to earn the rather dubious distinction as being the president that lost the Middle East to Islam.
It appears that there's little doubt as to what direction Barack Obama's moral compass is pointing. This is all the more evident by not only his openness to and support of the Muslim Brotherhood, but that little doubt can remain when a group that publicly espouses destruction of American Judeo-Christian values and freedoms is given an open invitation to the White House.
