Muslim Brotherhood To Attend Obama Speech

By Wyatt Earp | June 4, 2009

muslim-brotherhoodOh, that’s just fantastic. What better way to repair your dastardly country’s image in the eyes of the Muslim world than to have ten members of an Islamofascist organization in attendance?

The Muslim Brotherhood claims that they are not terrorists, but they did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. Oh, and they have friends in very low places - like Hamas.

Egyptian lawmakers from the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood are expected to attend President Obama’s highly anticipated speech to the Muslim world Thursday in Cairo.

Khaled Hamza, editor of the Muslim Brotherhood Web site, confirmed to that 10 members of the Brotherhood’s parliamentary bloc received official invitations to attend the speech.

Okay, two questions. First, who invited these scumbags to the Obama speech? Second, if Obama invited them - or knew of the invitations - why is he not doing everything in his power to keep them out?

The expected attendance of the Brotherhood members already is stirring some criticism from conservatives in the U.S. who say they do not represent the kind of moderate Muslims Obama should be appealing to.

“What kind of signal are we sending?” said Rep. Pete Hoekstra, ranking Republican on the House intelligence committee, warning that such an invitation will be seen more as a sign of weakness than strength. “I think the president takes some big risks by unilaterally putting out these olive branches.”

I am not a big fan of Hoekstra, but he makes an excellent point here. Obama can reach out to moderate Muslims all the live long day. Reaching out to extremists and terrorists? Stupid.

Though the hard-line group, which calls for an Islamic state and has close ties to the militant Hamas, is officially banned in Egypt, its members have considerable sway in the country and its lawmakers, who run as independents, hold 88 seats in Egypt’s 454-seat parliament. (H/T - FOXNews)

Oh, and for those of you interested, this is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood:

“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

Just the type of people you would want at an historic speech, eh, Mr. President?

    Hey, what the hell? We’re releasing Black Panther thugs that sit outside of the polls on election day with a nightstick telling people who they will vote for. Why not start sucking the cock of the “Religion of Hate” too.

    I am damn sick of this shit. I went to war twice to defend freedom and our way of life. Today that way of life seems to be going down the shitter faster than a fly with no wings on a sinking turd.

    I’m sick of it. Fuck Obama. Fuck the “Religion of Hate”.

    Presumably it was the Egyptian Government who invited/allowed them at the POTUS speech.

    I doubt whether POTUS had much control as to who was sitting in on his speech at Cairo University …

    Joe - Don’t hold back. Tell people what you really think - minus the sentence enhancers, please.

    Alan B - The article assumed that Obama did not personally invite them. Not really the point. The point is that he obviously didn’t have a problem with it, because he gave the speech.

    And if you don’t think someone with the rock star status of Obama couldn’t do something about it, I don’t know what to tell you.

    Bet the Secret Service is having kittens trying to protect our president. They really are the unsung heroes…

    I got $50 bucks that Obama had zero knowledge of this.

    I was listening to a live broadcast of his speech this morning (while I was getting ready for work, so only heard parts of it). I was a bit disturbed by the stuff he said about Iran. Seriously.

    They’d probably be surprised that despite being one of “the largest muslim nations” (durrr), their party only holds one seat in the US Congress at most (Ellison).

    Dano - I second that emotion.

    Randal - We can argue about WHEN he knew, but it’s safe to assume he knew. From the article: “Despite some reports suggesting the Obama administration arranged the invitations, officials said invitations were only sent out by Cairo University and Al-Azhar University.

    “I can tell you that invitations have gone out to the full range of actors in Egyptian political society,” Obama adviser Denis McDonough said Friday. “

    But yeah, he probably had no idea, even though the story ran on many news outlets. Maybe Obama adviser Denis McDonough probably kept him away from the TV.

    RT - Apparently they should go nuclear, but we can’t. And we can’t drill, and we can’t use coal, and we can’t . . .

    BIG - One of the largest Muslim nations? Eh, not so much, Mr. President.

    Wiki “List of Muslim Majority Countries”

    “The list only contains countries which are predominantly Muslim, meaning the Muslim population constitutes at least 50% of the total population. ”

    Headings are total population and % muslims.

    1 Indonesia 228,582,000 86.1%

    2 Pakistan 172,800,000 97%

    3 Bangladesh 153,547,000 89.7%

    4 Nigeria 146,255,000 50%

    5 Egypt 75,530,000 90%

    You might even argue that Nigeria is a little dodgy but 5th largest country with muslim majority sounds to me like “one of the largest muslim nations”.

    (Isn’t Wiki wonderful if you are a pedant!!)

    Alan B - Britain is probably a larger Muslim country than America at this point!

    Hmm I wonder if all the 57 states that obambi campaigned in…Oh..did I say states?.. I meant islamic nations were in attendence.

    Why shouldn’t he have said, bringing up religion himself, within our basically Judeo-Christian nation we have a large mooselim population?

    With further statements like this on the population of ones own country, you would think the prez ’should be’ up on things like this, (dontcha think?) , it makes me believe that his campaign misstatement was that much more Freudian Slippage. Now to be fair to those who desire peace, I am among them..really..this is kind of like General Crook calling the apaches down from the hills telling them we’re sorry we respect you etc., we’ll stop shooting the Ghost Dancers, etc. but get back on the reservation anyways.

    I’ll give him this one..not..because I like him or think he’s not a damn statist facist, lets try it once. If the apaches keep raiding the towns stealing cattle, as an analogy, then lets wipe them out once and for all.

    Alan B - Britain is probably a larger Muslim country than America at this point!

    Not yet! (except by % of population)

    United Kingdom
    2.7% - 3.3%
    1,640,958 - 2,000,000

    United States

    (Source: Wiki “Islam by Country”)

    If 3.3% max portion of the population can convert England into Whah -ha-habi Land (or whatever the sect), we maybe shouldn’t let ours get above 1%? Nothing evil intended, just common sense.

    Sorry about the sentence enhancers. Feel free to edit as you see fit. I’ll try to do better in the future.
