The State Department Hosts a Delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-Tied Leaders Who Are Trying To Oust the Egyptian Government

I’m not surprised in the least at this development. Obama has supported the Muslim Brotherhood and invited them directly into the White House from day one. Kerry hearts them as well. This is a slap in the face to our ally, Egypt, who is in existential fight for their lives with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is a terrorist organization, plain and simple, and our leaders have enthusiastically crawled into bed with them. We now have connected members in our government and positions of power and no one seems to give it a second thought. No one except Islamists who are conducting a silent coup here in the US.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.

One member of the delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page.

That delegation member, Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood.

The delegation also includes Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor.

Sharaby, the Brotherhood-aligned judge, flashed the Islamist group’s popular symbol in his picture at the State Department and wrote in a caption: “Now in the U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone,” according to an independent translation of the Arabic.

Another member of the delegation, Maha Azzam, confirmed during an event hosted Tuesday by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID)—another group accused of having close ties to the Brotherhood—that the delegation had “fruitful” talks with the State Department.

“Maha Azzam confirms that ‘anti-coup’ delegation, which includes 2 top [Muslim Brothers], had ‘fruitful’ conversations at State Dept,” Egypt expert Eric Trager tweeted.

Assam also said that the department expressed openness to engagement, according to one person who attended the event.

Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), told the Washington Free Beacon that the State Department is interested in maintaining a dialogue with the Brotherhood due to its continued role in the Egyptian political scene.

Samuel Tadros, an Egypt expert and research fellow at the Hudson Institute who is familiar with the delegation, said that the visit is meant to rally support for the Muslim Brotherhood’s ongoing efforts against to oppose Sisi.

“I think the Muslim Brotherhood visit serves two goals,” Tadros said. “First, organizing the pro Muslim Brotherhood movement in the U.S. among the Egyptian and other Arab and Muslim communities.”

“Secondly, reaching out to administration and the policy community in D.C.,” Tadros said. “The delegation’s composition includes several non-official Muslim Brotherhood members to portray an image of a united Islamist and non-Islamist revolutionary camp against the regime.”

The delegation held several public events this week in Maryland and Virginia, according to invitations that were sent out.

This delegation also actively supports Hamas. They are all virulently anti-Israel. We are so obviously on the wrong side here. We are siding with the likes of those that killed almost three thousand Americans on 9/11. A sitting President is aiding and abetting our enemies, while destroying our relationships with every ally we have ever had – all in the name of Islam. There is a reason the Muslim Brotherhood was disbanded and banned at one time. They are very, very dangerous and they are theological zealots that murder in the name of their god. They should not be allowed in America, much less the White House.
