In yet another triumph for Obama’s support of the Arab Spring, Saad al-Katatni, the newly elected chairman of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), has called for the institution of Sharia law. The FJP is the majority party in the Egyptian parliament.
Katatny was quoted as saying that “The Muslim Brotherhood established the [FJP] to represent the Brotherhood’s political project, which, in the end, will be a wise government that will institute Islamic Shari’a law.”
When combined with other statements by FJP it bodes ill for the strategic situation in the Middle East and speaks to the general fecklessness of the Obama regime’s policy in the region.
Last week Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Muhammad Badie called on Muslims worldwide to liberate Jerusalem by means of jihad.
According to AFP, in his weekly message to supporters, Badie asserted that “The jihad for the recovery of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims,” stressing that the city’s conquest “will not be done through negotiations or at the United Nations.”
The Obama regime has succeeded in undermining all the success made in the Middle East since the Camp David Accords and has consciously decided to turn the Mediterranean rim over to jihadists. One presumes there is some strategic vision there but one is hard pressed to describe it.
