GOP concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration at the highest levels of the Obama Administration recently got confirmation from an Egyptian magazine, Rose El-Youssef.
The article, which was translated into English by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, named six influential Muslims within and without the Obama Administration who it said turned the White House "from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood."
The six named in the article are: Rashad Hussain, U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Eboo Patel, President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships; Mohammed Elibiary, Homeland Security Advisory Council; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council; and Imam Mohamed Magid, Islamic Society of North America president.
Last June, five Republican members of Congress raised the mainstream media's hackles and alarmed the Left by sending a letter to Homeland Security and heads of other agencies raising questions about infiltration of the Obama Administration by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is an umbrella group for Islamist terrorist groups around the world that has called for restoration of the Muslim caliphate and ultimately global dominance.
That letter was met with manufactured outrage and spin from the Left and RINOs in Congress, such as Sen. John McCain, who tried to spin the matter as a personal attack on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin, whose family has undisputed ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Questions about her security clearance were only a small section of the letter, though it was almost all the mainstream media discussed.
Republican congressman Louie Gohmert, one of the five signatories to the letter, has called for a full-scale investigation of Muslim Brotherhood influence, particularly in light of the Administration's involvement in the "Arab Spring" uprisings across the Muslim world.
President Obama has quietly been a cheerleader, fundraiser and often instigator of the rebellions that have overthrown governments in several countries, including Libya and Egypt, which have become his two most notorious mistakes.
He involved our military in the effort to overthrow Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhaffi without congressional approval, he gave repeated public support to the overthrow of a longtime U.S.-friendly regime in Egypt, and he is currently providing under-the-table financial and military aid to the "rebels" in Syria, one of the most open of secrets around.
The Administration's adventurism in Libya and elsewhere led directly to the disaster of Benghazi that killed four Americans and that subsequently was covered up by the Administration, which tried to blame the fatal events on a YouTube video rather than admit that the attack was aimed at a secret U.S. operation to smuggle arms to Turkey for the Syrian war.
In Libya, Obama's policies have armed the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoots, leaving the country partially under the control of Islamist gangs that also influence the supposedly secular government.
In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood overran the stirrings of democracy, electing one of their own to the presidency, taking over the military, nullifying the courts and forcing adoption of a constitution that enshrines most of the precepts of Shariah law. Since the Brotherhood came to power in Egypt, Christians and Jews have been slaughtered, and rockets have been launched into Israel.
In Syria, the so-called rebels are controlled by U.S.-armed, al-Qaida-linked Islamist groups that are being used to topple the Assad government, which is allied with Russia and Iran, resulting in a confrontation between the Russians and NATO, which now has troops massed in Turkey to the north and Jordan to the south.
So once again, the U.S. is the Muslim Brotherhood's sugar daddy, but Muslim agents have apparently done a good job of leading the Administration astray. The Muslim Brotherhood has no friends, only fools it uses until they're bled dry.
