Al Gore may regret selling his Current TV to al-Jazeera after this.
Al-Jazeera, the Left’s new favorite news outlet, has reported that an Egyptian newspaper ran a front page headline naming President Obama as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Previously, the vice president of Egypt’s high court had said publicly that Obama’s brother Malik is an international finance officer for the Brotherhood.
According to al-Jazeera, Brookings Institute Doha Center Director of Research Shadi Hamid tweeted about the story printed in an Egyptian newspaper.
Hamid in his Twitter feed seemed to express skepticism about the story, saying the Egyptian media were being “creative.”
But News Agency Anatolia in Turkey recently reported an interview with Saad Al-Shater, the son of imprisoned Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat Al-Shater, that said he had incriminating evidence against Obama.
The elder Shater is the subject of U.S. State Department efforts, that included Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, to get Muslim Brotherhood prisoners released.
According to the news agency, the younger Shater said the reason the U.S. had sent a delegation to Egypt to negotiate a prisoner release is because his father has “in his hand” evidence that could put Obama in prison.
Saad al-Shater said the evidence had been distributed to trusted people both inside and outside Egypt and that the only way to keep the information from being revealed was to get his father released.
He said the U.S. was warned through intermediaries about the release of the information and that this may have caused a change in the U.S. position on Egypt.
The interview was first printed in early August, so the reference to a U.S. delegation seems to have been to a mission by McCain, Graham and U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, during which McCain and Graham called the jailed Muslim Brotherhood members “political prisoners” and said not releasing them would be “a huge mistake.”
The delegation was rebuffed by Egypt’s interim president.
In an Aug. 6 CNN interview, McCain mentioned Khairat Al-Shater as someone who could be key in negotiating a future Egyptian government.
Whether the story about Obama being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood is true or not, the Obama Administration is believed by many people to be infiltrated by numerous Brotherhood agents, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top aide.
The Administration is clearly sympathetic toward the Brotherhood, having welcomed the presidency of Mohammed Morsi in Egypt, and having backed al-Qaeda-connected “rebels” in Syria. Much of the reticence of allies and U.S. politicians to support intervention in Syria has to do with the known terrorist connections of the people Obama wants us to support.
If Obama’s not an actual Muslim Brotherhood member, he’s the next worst thing, a supporter and enabler.
