President Obama has been supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood. He has appointed them to positions in the top tiers of the Administration; has had advisers meet with Brotherhood members in the White House; and he has promoted their dictatorial and corrupt leadership in Egypt. He even insisted the Brotherhood be included in the Egyptian government after the overthrow of Mubarek. Saudi Arabia has now pointed out the obvious – the Brotherhood is a terrorist organization.
By way of royal decree, Saudi Arabia blacklisted them Friday as a terrorist organization. Also included in the list were Shiite movement Hezbollah, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and the al-Qaeda franchise, al-Nusra Front.
Blacklisting the Brotherhood was the big news.
Saudi fighters who have joined these groups have been given a 15-day ultimatum to return home. If not, penalties will be tough, though they could always look for a position in the Obama Administration.
The groups were blacklisted because they “fight moderate Muslims and are causing troubles around the world,” said Abdel Latif al-Sheikh, head of the Saudi religious police. “This is what we consider against Islamic principles and has given a negative impression about Muslims in the West.”
Saudi Arabia is determined “to fight terrorism.”
Mohammad Zulfa, member of the Shura Council, said that some clerics have issued fatwas encouraging young Saudis to become involved in conflict ares, which has “ruined the reputation of Islam and have affected Saudi Arabia’s image in front of the international community.”
In December 2013, Egypt declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group and accused them of carrying out a series of bomb attacks in Cairo. The Brotherhood has been forced underground since former President Mohammad Mursi’s fall from power. Many have fled to Turkey and Qatar.
Qatar owns Hillary Clinton’s “real news” channel.
In March 2011, she said this: “…In fact viewership of al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners,” she added.
As the Brotherhood unraveled, Mr. Obama gave the impression he supported Mursi’s dictatorial rule.
In 2012, Mr. Obama met with the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House to open up dialogue. By doing this, he gave them credibility they shouldn’t have had.
Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, is a sister to and daughter of Muslim Brotherhood members.
Two military chaplains have been hired from The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a Muslim Brotherhood front group. They could have found Muslim clerics who are not members of ISNA but they chose not to.
Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council, has Muslim Brotherhood ties and has tweeted that the US is a Muslim nation.
Frontpage Magazine noted five other Brotherhood-connected public servants in high office: Arif Alikhan – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the (OIC) Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati – Obama Adviser, founder of Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director; Imam Mohamed Magid – Obama’s Sharia Czar, Islamic Society of North America; and Eboo Patel – Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

Retired US Air Force General Tom McInerney confirmed there are Muslim Brotherhood members in the Administration who influence the White House inner circle.

Mr. Obama has made it clear that he will not change the designation of the Brotherhood. Late last year, he said this through an official: “A US official told Reuters that Egypt was going ‘way too far’ in the crackdown, adding that the Obama administration had no intention of taking any action against Cairo in response, or following suit in labeling the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.”
Perhaps President Obama will get the message from Saudi Arabia and stop trying to hire and have dialogues with members of this terrorist organization?
