After a year in which Morsi and The Muslim Brotherhood imprisoned, tortured and murdered their own people with our financial support, Egypt has declared The Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group. Mr. Obama supported The Brotherhood and insisted they be part of the government prior to Morsi’s rise in power and he and Mrs. Clinton continued to support them after the coup and the revelations of atrocities committed by Morsi.
The Brotherhood were considered a terrorist group by most US leaders prior to Mr. Obama’s soft-pedaling of them as ‘moderate’ despite their transparently false claims of having sworn off violence.
The Brotherhood is not a political party but rather a government-within-a-government that aims only to defeat all opposition and install strict Sharia law in Egypt.
In a press statement on Wednesday, Deputy Prime Minister Hossam Eissa said the cabinet declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group, making it subject to Article 86 of the Egyptian penal code, which defines terrorism and the penalties for engaging in it. According to Ahram, Eissa said the deadly bombing in the Delta city of Mansoura on Tuesday as well as recent attacks on churches and other violent incidents attributed to members of the group led to the decision.
Egypt’s foreign minister will contact other Arab countries to encourage them to take the same position according to the Arab Convention on the Suppression of Terrorism signed by Arab governments.
The day after the announcement, The Freedom and Justice Party newspaper (The Muslim Brotherhood) was put on the chopping block. The government will attempt to halt publication.
The interim government believes they are behind the recent suicide bomb attack on a police station that killed 16 people; 54 Brotherhood members have been arrested in connection with the attack.
The Brotherhood, who, under Morsi, established a dictatorship, are afraid this action by the interim government will hurt Egypt’s movement towards a Democratic government. Huh? That sounds like something Mr. Obama or Mrs. Clinton would say.
Remember US ally Mohammed Morsi’s rant against Israel in January, calling them ‘Zionist blood suckers’ and descendants of apes and pigs?’ Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton continued their steadfast loyalty for Morsi after this was made known.
Christians have been under threat of annihilation because of The Brotherhood.
Under Morsi, The Muslim Brotherhood was beheading Christians in broad daylight in the streets.
Morsi supporters burned down government buildings in Giza in August. Terrorists rampaged through the Sinai attacking Christians and other minorities. Black Al Qaeda flags wave over churches.
USA Today reported in June that churches, houses, monasteries, orphanages, schools and businesses belonging to Copts were attacked in nine provinces “causing panic, losses and destruction for no reason and no crimes they committed except being Christians,” the Maspero Youth Union, a Coptic activist group, said Thursday.
Egyptian Brotherhood members were at Benghazi on 9/11/12 and it is believed they are connected to the planning of the Benghazi attack. After the attack, Morsi played into the apocryphal story about the attack being caused by a video and issued arrest warrants for eight Americans connected to the film.
While Mr. Obama advocated for Morsi, leading Morsi politicians were saying this:
The Brotherhood has a ten-year plan according to some sources: Ten-Year Plan
