Update at the end. A White House official was apparently at the meeting viewed as a meeting with terrorists by the Egyptian government and the White House lied about who organized the meeting – it wasn’t Georgetown University.
Several top officials from the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood were hosted at the State Department last week in what was described as a ‘fruitful’ meeting by State. The Brotherhood left there and went back to Egypt where their organization almost immediately called for an endless violent jihad to overturn the Egyptian government.
Either this administration is comprised of the most incompetent group of ninnies on the face of the earth or our administration is deliberately propping up radical Islamists. There is a third option – they’re delusional.

Two days ago, The Washington Free Beacon informed the public of the meeting held last week at the State Department with Muslim Brotherhood members.
Many countries recognize that the Brotherhood is a terrorist organization that spawned most of the radical Islamist groups but not Barack Obama. He doesn’t even recognize the existence of radical Islam.
Top Brotherhood leaders were at the State Department meeting.
They went from the State Department to Egypt and called for a “long, uncompromising jihad.”
Looks like strategizing at the White House was helpful!
On Thursday, perhaps coincidentally, a merciless attack took place in the violent jihadist haven of Egypt’s Sinai region. Twenty-five died. The attack was linked to ISIS. The Sinai is home to several radical jihadist groups, all connected in some way to the Brotherhood.
Throughout the Brotherhood statement, they cited the ‘inspiring’ words of Brotherhood founder Muslim cleric Imam al-Banna who called for the death of Jews.
Imam al-banna, the statement read, “equipped Jihad Brigades sent to Palestine to fight the Jews rapists, and returned the second leader Hassan HUDHAIBI formations ‘special regime’ to drain the British occupiers.”
A symbol (photo above) on the statement had crossed swords that read “prepare” and below it reads “truth, strength, freedom”.
According to the statement, imam al banna says: “The Muslim Brotherhood will use force where the process does not work…”
I dare to say they haven’t a clue as to the meaning of truth and freedom.
“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom,” the statement read.
Some say this is an embarrassment to the State Department, but is it?
They had to know this would happen. The meeting was held at a time when El-Sisi is cracking down on the Brotherhood and imprisoning them, something Barack Obama has spoken out against.
One of the members of the delegation who came to the State Department posed for a photo posted on Facebook which showed him making the four-finger Rabia symbol. [The ‘Rabaa sign’ has become the symbol of protests against the military coup in Egypt and the center of the anti-coup protests, Rabaa al-Adawiya Square].
Barack Obama shoved the Brotherhood down the throats of the Egyptian people during the Arab Spring. He insisted they be included in the government. He supported Mohammed Morsi who became a dictator. After el-Sisi defeated him in a coup, Obama did everything he could diplomatically to bully el-Sisi into freeing him and restoring him to power. He took away their funding which the Saudis replaced.
He did this all the while knowing the Egyptian people didn’t want Morsi and his Brotherhood.
Hillary was 100% on board at the time and both she and Obama bragged in a 60 Minutes interview that they were integral to the original coup which brought Morsi to power.
The Egyptian people didn’t appreciate it.
That doesn’t stop Obama. He is not simply an appeaser. He appears to be a sympathizer and supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood but he doesn’t want you to believe your lying eyes.
One of the Muslims representing our State Department said the meeting was ‘fruitful.’ I don’t doubt it.
After the terror attack on the Sinai, President el-Sisi said he will never leave the Sinai. It is “ours”. It is ‘part of Egypt’ and he will defend it in the ‘face of terror’.
The Egyptian president is protecting Christians, he is shown below with the Coptic Pope with whom he attended Mass.
El-Sisi is defending the people against terrorists and has risked his life by telling the Mullahs they have to get a handle on their religion.
He would love to join with the U.S. in fighting radical Islam but Obama has decided el-Sisi is a usurper and does not stand for freedom the way the dictator Morsi did.
An Egyptian court just banned Hamas and labeled them a terrorist organization. That has to stick in Obama’s craw. He’s insisting Netanyahu negotiate with the Hamas/Palestinian Authority coalition. The Brotherhood sired Hamas.
In comments broadcast on state television, El-Sisi said “(It) will be difficult, strong, evil and will take a long time” to defeat the terrorists.
Hamas isn’t happy.
“We reject the Egyptian court’s decision against Qassam Brigades. It is a political, dangerous decision that serves only the Zionist occupation,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri, referring to Israel’s control over Palestinian territories.
Is it really surprising that this government does exactly the wrong thing all the time? We can’t say what Obama’s motives are but if we watch what he does, we will have our answers.
Update: 02/10/15: According to the Washington Free Beacon, a White House official was in attendance at this meeting and the White House originally lied about it.
Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member and former Egyptian parliamentarian, claims a White House official was at the meeting.
The Egyptian government, which is trying to crack down on radical Islamists was said to be angry about the meeting. “The Brotherhood is not a political party,” but “a terrorist organization,” Foreign Minister Saleh Shukri said.
It gets worse. From the Free Beacon:
State Department Spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki initially claimed that the Brotherhood-aligned delegation was sponsored by Georgetown University, a claim that turned out to be false.
“Unfortunately, I didn’t have the accurate information on one small piece. The meeting was set up by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy, a nonprofit. So the visit was not funded, as you know, by us or the U.S. Government, but it was also not funded by Georgetown,” Psaki said last week, under renewed questioning from reporters about the meeting.
Psaki went on to say that the Obama administration remains comfortable entertaining the Brotherhood.
“Are you—is the building comfortable with continuing to do business with this center, this group?” a reporter asked.
“Yes. Yes,” Psaki responded.
