Muslim Brotherhood reaches out to Hezbollah.
Tell me again how marvelous it is that we encouraged the Muslim Brotherhood to take over in Egypt: “In a dramatic policy shift, Egypt will seek to forge “tight” relations with Hezbollah, Egyptian Ambassador to Lebanon Ashraf Hamdy revealed in a candid interview published Saturday in Lebanon’s Daily Star.” Such ‘tight’ relations will presumably include Hezbollah’s right to keep getting ready for that armed conflict | Read More »
Radio Censorship – Egypt Bans Romantic Songs
The dystopian Science Fiction novel A Canticle For Liebowitz featured one of the best and most articulate examples of what happens when a society rejects modernity en masse. The “Simplication” involved the destruction of all things part and parcel to modern society. This element of destructive rejection resonated amongst the Egyptian grassroots that propelled Muhammad Morsi and The Muslim Brotherhood to power during the tragically misnamed Arab Spring. I predicted this would not be a Renaissance but rather a Bonfire of The Vanities.
And so here goes your proof. The same people who actually debate whether or not to blow up those idolatrous pyramids at Luxor, are now banning all music from Egyptian State Radio accept “patriotic” tunes. Details of Egypt’s “Day The Music Died” followed below.

RAND Report Reveals Obama Administration’s Intricate Collaboration With The Muslim Brotherhood
The Obama administration has been diligent in employing a strategy of engagement with the Muslim Brotherhood. But, it is the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda that is the focus of this joint effort, instead of the interests of the United States.

So far, Obama more a dictator than ‘hooded Egyptian Morsi
Dog Bites Man: White House that has repeatedly defied court orders and the separation of powers under the U.S. Constitution, refuses to condemn Muslim Brotherhood President they supported during “Arab Spring” for acting like the Islamist fascists they have always been Less than 24 hours after being praised by President Barack Obama for brokering a ceasefire to stop the Israeli counterattack against Hamas’ rocket-firing jihadis in Gaza, Egyptian President | Read More »
Obama’s would-be Egyptian puppet Mohammed Morsi is… not working out.
…then by GOD that strongman stayed both propped up and a puppet. There was none of this nonsense where the strongman would go off in a wild tangent with the sudden emergency powers and the apologetics for terrorist attacks against an ally and the counter-rioting/nascent revolutions. No, the understanding was simple. Keep the country stable; don’t shoot down people in the street and don’t lock | Read More »
Axis of Hamas-Iran-Egypt Evil vs. Israel Alone
No one actually believes U.S. president desires that his Muslim Brotherhoods suffer defeat, despite Obama Administration statements since Israel struck back against Hamas in Gaza last week. No, the din of President Barack Obama’s apology tours, Cairo speech, bows to dictators, silence when Iran’s mullahs were mowing down freedom-lovers in Tehran’s streets, abandonment of Egyptian ally Hosni Mubarak, Muslim Brotherhood ties in his White House and Secretary | Read More »

Obama: ‘protecting’ American lady-parts. Egyptian ones? …Well, not so much.
Let’s connect the dots: One. This is from the official Tumblr of the Obama re-election campaign (click it fast, because it won’t be there soon): [UPDATE: Well, that was fast.] Two. We are giving aid to Egypt. Which is to say, we are giving Egypt $450 million of your tax money. Three. Egypt, of course, is run by the Muslim Brotherhood. This is what | Read More »
America is Absolutely Schizophrenic

Do Straw Men Have Free Speech?
President Barack Obama took to the UN podium on Tuesday and lied, blaming an American’s exercise of free speech for the death of Obama’s own Ambassador. He also stood before that august body of Islamists, antisemites, tyrants, socialists, and corrupt panderers and told America’s sworn enemies that the future is theirs. In continuing to blame the video and attack it, Obama is using his usual straw man tactics. | Read More »
Barack Obama takes a page from the Muslim Brotherhood.
You may have noticed a little while back that the US Embassy in Cairo called out the Egyptian government/Muslim Brotherhood for saying one thing in English (read: Western foreign consumption) and another in Arabic (read: domestic/regional consumption). Which is all to the good… so why did the President do the same thing this week? The View: “In an interview with ABC’s “The View,” Obama — | Read More »
