August 22, 2013 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Team Obama/Morsi in numerous statements over the past week has clearly indicated its continued support for the Muslim Brotherhood.
“Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope…” [from MB mission statement]
Nice peaceful fellows, don't you think?
Additionally, the administration has engaged in a bizarre display of callous moral equivalency, likening the Egyptian military response to the Brotherhood’s violent jihad with unprovoked attacks by these same Muslim Brothers and their supporters, on the Coptic Christian community. So far this terrorist activity has resulted in the closing of over 50 churches of which at least 40 have been burned.
We note that even when tepid remarks are made by this administration regarding the genocide which is being carried out by the Muslim Brotherhood against not only the Egyptian, but the dwindling remainder of the Middle East’s Christian community, are always followed by expressions of outrage over the supposedly unfair treatment of the single most dangerous terrorist organization on Earth, the Ikhwan [Arabic for the Brotherhood].
What follows is a sampling of the administration’s remarks regarding what is obviously a full-fledged civil war in Egypt between general al-Sisi’s military government and the country’s revolutionary Islamic jihadists.
Of particular interest, troubling evidence has been presented suggesting that the MB is allied internationally with similarly motivated groups such as the Libyan based Ansar Al-Shari’a, a group alleged to had been conducting high-level planning sessions with now ousted Mohammed Morsi regarding the 9.11.12 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

From the Dept. of State’s press gaggle, 8.15.2013:
“…MS. PSAKI: Well, we’ve been clear, and this has consistently been our position, that all parties, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood, who we have been in touch with, and – but Deputy Secretary Burns met with representatives of when he was there just two weeks ago. So all parties includes the Muslim Brotherhood. It includes members of the government. And certainly, not only are high-level officials on the ground, but the Secretary and the Deputy Secretary and other members of the Administration have been in touch with representatives of all parties…”August 15 news coverage of the Egyptian calmity, which serves as an indictment of the Muslim Brotherhood’s unholy war.
“…The United States strongly condemns all attacks and acts of violence and bloodshed across Egypt. We are outraged and deplore in the strongest terms the reprehensible attacks of the past few days against numerous Coptic churches. We also condemn the recent attacks on public buildings, including police stations. There can be absolutely no place for such violence in Egypt, and we call on all of Egypt’s leaders to condemn such attacks. These attacks risk further aggravating an already fragile atmosphere. The government has a responsibility to create an atmosphere where Egyptians can exercise their universal rights, including free assembly, expression, and media. Protesters also have a responsibility to exercise those rights peacefully, and those demonstrating peacefully should not be labeled terrorists. Just as we have over the past weeks, we urge all sides to immediately take utmost steps to calm the situation and avoid further loss of life or further injuries…” [both items sourced, Dept. of State presser 8.15.2013]
“…Arab satellite channels showed Brotherhood supporters firing automatic weapons at targets beneath a main bridge in the Cairo district of Zamalek…Morsi supporters, united in the Moslim Brotherhood party, were also seen destroying dozens of churches, Christian businesses and homes. Several Christians as well as journalists were killed in the violence…Amid the violence, Christians rushed to try to protect churches and other Christian sites. However over 50 churches and other Christian sites have been attacked since Wednesday, August 14, several Coptic sources and activists said…at least 40 churches were burned across Egypt since Wednesday, August 14, according to local nongovernmental organizations and the Coptic Church’s youth group…” [source, Egypt Christians In Fear As Dozens Are Killed, Bos News Life Middle East Service, this is an independent news source emanating from Budapest, Hungary]From State’s 8.15 2013 presser:
“…MS. PSAKI: Well, we’ve been clear, and this has consistently been our position, that all parties, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood, who we have been in touch with, and – but Deputy Secretary Burns met with representatives of when he was there just two weeks ago. So all parties includes the Muslim Brotherhood. It includes members of the government. And certainly, not only are high-level officials on the ground, but the Secretary and the Deputy Secretary and other members of the Administration have been in touch with representatives of all parties. [source, U.S. State Department, briefing]Taking a brief time-out at the end of his latest R&R excursion, Mr. Obama had this to say today:
“…instead we’ve seen a more dangerous path taken through arbitrary arrests, a broad crackdown on Mr. Morsi’s associations and supporters and now tragically, violence has taken the lives of hundreds of people…the United States strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by Egypt’s interim government and security forces…we deplore violence against civilians…we support the universal rights essential to human dignity Including the right to peaceful protests…we oppose the pursuit of martial law which denies those rights to citizens under the principle that security trumps individual freedom…and condemn the attacks that we’ve seen by protesters, including on churches…we believe that the state of emergency should be lifted…That a process of national recognition should begin…” [PipeLineNews.org transcript: Obama prepared statement on Egyptian violence , August 21, 2013]
Thus the trend continues, this administration is clearly in league with the Muslim Brotherhood [also please note how the legacy media is unwilling to name the organization, instead calling them, the Muslim Brothers as if they were long-lost relatives].
As per their usual MO, the MSM has invoked the “cone of silence” as to what is really going down in Egypt, a nation which though an ally only 18 months ago, now, because of Obama's policies, bitterly hates the United States [source, Barack Hussein Obama - Muslim Brotherhood Mole?].
“...Obama is hated in Egypt. He and his administration including the ex-Secretary of State Hillary – hey look at me, I’m running for president, now that I've failed at just about everything I tried – Clinton, Anne Patterson and the rest of this sorry bunch have driven Egypt to the point of civil war by actively supporting, behind the scenes and in public statements, the "mother of all terrorist organizations," especially those connected to al-Qaeda and its many disparate franchises….Who could blame the Egyptian people? Our president is seen as the agent whereby the chaos now in play in that country came into being. The "street" Egyptians, not the MB thugs who are terrorizing Cairo and other large cities in the country, know that as these words are written president Barack Hussein Obama is chastising the only hope for any semblance of order in this once great nation [the military] now that he has almost singlehandedly destabilized it.
We think that in the minds of many, Mr. Obama functionally might as well be a member of the despised Muslim Brotherhood…”
