Debkafile: “The Middle East is on the brink of its fourth war. Egypt has massed large-scale ground and air forces in the Western Desert, preparing to capture eastern Libya – Cyrenaica – from ISIS occupation.

The offensive may be launched by dropping Egyptian marines from the sea on the Libyan coast around Derna (pop: 100,000), which ISIS has made its provincial capital. ISIS is rushing reinforcements to Libya from Syria and Iraq.

The Obama administration objects to a direct Egyptian military operation, as CIA chief John Brennan informed President Abdel Fatteh el-Sisi.”

speech

Opinion: The Obama/el Sisi feud is over ideology. Muslim ideology.

President Obama had a plan when he invited the Muslim Brotherhood to his 2009 Cairo University ‘New Beginning’ speech. Prior to that, the Brotherhood and sub-groups al Qaeda, Hamas and Islamic Jihad had been banned in Egypt for over 30 years.

In 2012, after kicking Hosni Mubarak to the curb a year earlier, the Muslim Brotherhood took control of Egypt’s presidency with Mohamed Morsi at the helm. The Obama team swung into action with cash, tanks, F16s and the legitimacy of State Department visits and invitations to the White House.

Chaos descended on Egypt.

Enter General President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, head of Egypt’s military, who led a full scale assault on the Brotherhood arresting thousands, hanging leaders and placing Morsi under arrest.

President Obama was not amused.

The final straw came on January 5, 2015 when President al- Sisi took to the same podium at Cairo University and admonished the assembled Muslim scholars to revisit Islamic law, or fiqh, in order to calm the fears of the non-Muslim world:

Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants—that is 7 billion—so that they themselves may live? Impossible!

Evidently, that is not what our president wanted to hear.

Zero Hedge: “Deposed former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was sentenced to 20 years in prison today in connection with a crackdown on protesters during demonstrations against his rule in late 2012. Morsi, whose Muslim Brotherhood has been branded as a terrorist organization by now-President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, assumed the Presidency in 2012 after Hosni Mubarak was toppled a year earlier during the Arab Spring.

Now, with Morsi sentenced to nearly a quarter century behind bars, we thought it as good a time as any to resurrect the following Morsi-era quotes from Hillary Clinton who, like Egypt’s democratically elected former President, just wants what’s best for “everyday” people:

 “The United States [strongly supports] the Egyptian people and their democratic transition”. 

“We want to be a good partner and we want to support the democracy that has been achieved by the courage and sacrifice of the Egyptian people.”

Opinion: The crack Obama foreign policy team gave legitimacy to the once banned Muslim Brotherhood, showering them with:

  • Front row seats to the 2009 Cairo speech
  • Numerous visits from the Secretary of State
  • An invitation to visit Washington DC
  • 200 Abrams tanks
  • 4 (state of the art) F16 fighter jets
  • $1.5 billion US (taxpayer) dollars

And, saving the best for last … a fractured relationship with Israel and the US.

WAY TO GO TEAM!

sjp_0Front Page Magazine: “The world is witnessing a resurgence of global anti-Semitism not seen since the 1930s and the “Final Solution.” In the Middle East, Hitler-admiring regimes like Iran, and Hitler-admiring parties like Hezbollah, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, are openly planning to finish the job the Nazis started. Even in America, until now the most hospitable place outside of Israel for Jews, the atmosphere is more hostile than at any time in the last 70 years.

Across the United States student groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, specifically Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association, are engaged in a vitriolic campaign against Israel and those students who support its right to exist. These organizations promote the propaganda of the terrorist organization Hamas, and call for the destruction of the Jewish state.

To advance this genocidal agenda, SJP endorses the lie that Israel was created on territory stolen from the Palestinians and, therefore, Jews illegally occupy Arab lands from which they must be purged.

In 1948 when Israel was created, there was no Palestinian political entity, no movement for a Palestinian state, and no people calling itself Palestinian.”

Opinion: News Flash: There is no such thing as a Palestinian. The name was re-crafted for Arabs from Jordan by a blood thirsty Amalek of the 20th century, Yasser Arafat.

Non-revisionist history:

The 1967 war, also called the six day war, was to be a genocidal assault against the Jewish state by Egypt, Jordan and Syria. But Israel, having learned from the book of Esther in 520 BC, rather than wait to be annihilated, preempted and attacked first.

The victory stunned the world as Israel captured the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights, and the Sinai Peninsula.

When Israel recaptured the West Bank from Jordan, King Abdullah refused to repatriate any more refugees, and instead put them in internment camps.

It was in those camps, with the help of Yasser Arafat, that the name Palestinian became associated with Arabs from Jordan. Prior to 1967, “Palestinian was a disparaging name for Jews living in Palestine” (which was renamed Israel in 1948).

Yet, since 1967, the UN has called these lands “occupied,” even though the recaptured lands were part of the 1917 British Mandate, and no nation has ever returned land taken during a defensive action.

Here is what the SJP and MSA are fighting against:

The land of Israel was granted to a man named Abram, whom God renamed Abraham, in 4000 BC . The gift was an unbreakabe and forever covenant between God and Abraham and his descendants after him, Genesis 17:7-8.

Be careful trying to explain this to a progressive, they have a tendency to get very angry. It’s that truth thingy.
