The Simon Wiesenthal Center criticized the White House today for opening talks with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The Center referred to a news wire story quoting a unidentified senior U.S. official and confirmed today by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, citing, “The Brotherhood’s rise in political prominence” as the reason for the change in the White House position. “The political landscape in Egypt may have changed since the end of the Mubarak regime,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. “But the Brotherhood’s hatred of Jews and Israel has not changed at all. This seems like a sell out to the European position and I hope it is not a signal that the United States will acquiesce to Europe and begin talking to Hamas as well.”
A few weeks ago, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Mohamed Badie (pictured left) said, “Allah has warned us the tricks of the Jews, and their role in igniting the fire of wars… and they labor hard to spread corruption on earth: and Allah does not love the spreaders of corruption.”
Rabbi Hier continued, “We should not be talking to an organization that can lay claim to being the world's leading purveyor of anti-Semitism and hatred of Jews. Legitimizing the Muslim Brotherhood sends the wrong message that you can hate Jews, and still sit and talk with world leaders.”
The NY Post reports that amidst concern about possible Wahabist-affiliations, Huma Abedin, adminstrative assistant to US Sec'y of State Hillary Clinton, is taking time off from the her senior job with the State Dept- as well as time off from her husband.
FrontPage Magazine last week published an interview with Robert Spencer, author of the Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades), and the director of Jihad Watch. In the interview, Mr. Spencer indicates that what with Ms. Abedin's family involvement in the Muslim Brotherhood and Sisterhood, that Muslima, Huma Abedin's marriage to the scandal-plagued Rep. Anthony Weiner (who professed Judaism when campaigning in a partly Jewish district) was reported by the Arabic al-Marsid newspaper article as being null and void.
English translation by Walid Shoebat:
“Dr. Anwar Shoeb of the faculty of Islamic law in Kuwait declared that the marriage between Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin is null and void, considering it adultery as confirmed in the Sharia position, prohibiting the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim, regardless of whether he is a Jew or a Christian. In this case, he assured the invalidity of the marriage certificate between them.”Alternatively, Mr. Spencer declares that since the imam of the Islamic Cultural Center in NY encouraged Huma to stand by her husband who disgraced her, Anthony Weiner may have converted to Islam to marry her.
Before Weiner's last re-election, when questioning his Jewish pedigree and Zionist bona fides, challengers asserted that in addition to not caucusing with Jews in the Brooklyn-Queens democratic circles, he had, curiously never drafted any legislation in support of Israel. See video:
In "U.S Ignores Hillary Clinton's Powerful Aide Huma Abedin at Its Own Risk" published in Human Events, Walid Shoebat presents an argument that Hillary Clinton has enabled Huma Abedin (who he argues is a Muslim Brotherhood agent who was never adequately vetted) to benefit the Muslim Brotherhood from within Washington, under the guise of assisting the State Dept.
While Westerners portray The Sisterhood as a simple “mule service,” our own detailed research—which will be released shortly—reveals male supervisors as official members along with their wives and/or daughters. The list includes spies who have proudly disclosed their heroic acts during Israel’s wars with Egypt. Others are Nazi-style propagandists, Nazi affiliates from the time of the Brotherhood’s inception, hijab (Muslim head covering and modest styles of dress) advocates in Europe, prominent doctors, popular conspiracy theorists and media icons that closely emulate the Goebbels propaganda machine of Nazi Germany.
The group's influence spans several international organizations from the United Nations to the United States to women's advocacy groups worldwide. Its influence is immense. Overlooking this group—and by extension, Huma Abedin—is not dissimilar to ignoring the Able Danger intelligence operation's revelations about Mohamed Atta prior to 9/11.
Any doubting Thomas must acknowledge the validity of The Sisterhood list because it follows the same agenda and direction shown on the Muslim Brotherhood's official website, and it has been confirmed by Egyptian security services and top experts, including the Arab Center for Research and Studies, headed by researcher Abdul Rahim Ali.
To give you a taste of this bitter herb, we will examine a single name before we publish all 63. Take Najla Ali Mahmoud, who is supervised by her husband, Mohammed Aidalmrsi, member of the Muslim Brotherhood's Guidance Bureau and the current leader of the Justice and Freedom Party (the Brotherhood’s new propaganda name). He recently appeared on national television and explained why “Egypt needs to ban Western dress” and how “no one with a full mental faculty can believe in the Trinity.” He even condemned Egyptian monuments as “idols.” This group differs from the Taliban only in that it has a Western propaganda machine.
Will Egypt do to the Sphinx what the Taliban did to the Buddhist statues in Bamiyan, Afghanistan? Will Egypt perpetrate a holocaust on Coptic Christians who are already portrayed as having a mental deficiency for believing in the Trinity?
And while this "Goebbels" runs his propaganda machine, the naysayers demand evidence of Huma Abedin’s membership in this notorious group. Would someone have appointed the daughter of Magda and Joseph Goebbels as the deputy chief of staff for Cordell Hull—the U.S. secretary of state during World War II—arguing that she was not a member of the Nazi party?
It is not “racist” to compare the Muslim Brotherhood with the Nazis. Hassan Al-Banna, the grandfather of Tariq Ramadan (Ramadan's ban from the U.S. was lifted by Clinton), collaborated with Hitler henchman Haj Amin al-Husseini, who became the Muslim Brotherhood leader after the war. Neither has the Brotherhood repented. They still take pride in their collaboration with the Nazis.
And while the U.S. House of Representatives debated whether to cut off funds for Obama's military campaign in Libya , which aids the Brotherhood-backed rebels, Clinton challenged Congress over its position, asking, “Whose side are you on?”
Huma Abedin is taking an extended vacation.
This is a question the secretary of state should ask herself.
Even the team that was set up because of the State Department’s policy designed to “engage the moderate Muslim world” was infiltrated without even screening its contributor, the Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer and—Egyptian by heritage—Ground Zero Mosque imam, Sheikh Feisal Abdul Rauf, who only moderates his tone in English.
Promoting a moderate Muslim Brotherhood is like promoting “capitalistic communism” to defeat Russia during the Cold War, or even a “pro-Jew Nazism” during World War II. A more current and real-life example is “Chrislam.”
Clinton’s “inclusion policy” has brought in spies, and this is how she plans to soften the Muslim Brotherhood? Clinton’s use of oxymoronic formulas to combat terrorism is worse than the moronic path taken by the likes of Jordanian doctor and double agent Humam al-Balawi—he killed his enemies, seven CIA agents, while we bolster the confidence of ours.
Huma Abedin was never properly screened, and unless this darling of Hillary Clinton answers some tough questions, the issues we set forth regarding the failure to screen her makes for an ironclad case.
