In their time in power Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood trampled on the human rights of millions upon millions of Egyptians, drove the Egyptian economy into the ground, did everything they could to establish a full-fledged Islamic state and the supremacy of Islamic law (Sharia) in Egypt, presided over a government that would not and could not meet the needs of the people, especially the material needs, and were generally dragging Egypt and the Egyptian people out of the twenty-first century and back to the seventh, when Islam first came into existence. They were a brutal, savage and backward regime which was anti American, anti-Semitic, anti-Western, anti-Christian, anti-Israel, anti-anything that wasn’t Islamic, anti-everything that smacked of tolerance and modernity and were misogynistic in the extreme…their hatred and disgust for Americans, Jews, the West, Christians and Israel was palpable and their treatment of women, minorities and political opponents was beyond abhorrent. The Egyptian military was entirely right to depose them. Indeed, the Egyptian military had a responsibility to depose them and did so with the support of the vast majority of the Egyptian people.
A Muslim Brotherhood led government was clearly not in the best interests of Egypt or the Egyptian people. It was also not in the best interests of the United States either and threatened the United States on any number of fronts. Anyone who knew anything about the Brotherhood and its background, philosophy and modus operandi had to know that would be the case if they took power, couldn’t possibly not have known it.
Why then was President Obama and his administration so instrumental in bringing Morsi and the Brotherhood to power to begin with? Why then is President Obama so interested in restoring them to power? Why then is President Obama so insistent on Morsi’s release? Why then have President Obama and his minions allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to exercise extraordinary influence in his administration and American institutions and life in general? Why then has Obama conferred legitimacy on it, in Egypt and America? None of that was, is, in the best interests of the United States, so why has he done it, why is he doing it? It wouldn’t be because he himself is an Islamist and shares Morsi and the Brotherhoods philosophy and beliefs would it?
Good questions all and Americans should insist on answers and shouldn’t let him get away with any of it.
And for what its worth Morsi and his fellow Muslim Brotherhood prisoners shouldn’t be released. They should be tried for crimes against humanity and locked up for life.
In the best interests of Egypt and Egyptians.
In the best interests of the United States.
In the best interests of humanity.
