The Obama Administration’s New 7 Pillars of Middle East ‘Wisdom’

The bottom line is the belief that if the Muslim Brotherhood is kept happy it won’t cause any trouble.

Okay here’s just one example. A nationally leading political advisor to the government said that there were moderate Islamists. When I asked for examples I was given two, both dead for more than a century and one a supporter of extreme radicals. I have dozens of these examples.         The bottom line is the belief that if the Muslim Brotherhood is kept happy it won’t cause any trouble. I’m not kidding here. Why, for example, is the Sinai Peninsula heating up with violent terrorism?  Because the Islamists aren’t running it!

This has been the official propaganda line everywhere in the mass media, with only the rarest conflicting view presented despite the fact that it is just common sense.    The New York Times published four articles in one week alone complaining that President Obama was blocked by doing the right thing–opposing condemnation of the Egyptian coup because it seemed inexplicably to oppose a genocidal regime ten times its population which supported its extermination while allied to a terrorist statelet (Gaza) on its border. 

One Times story claimed:

“While Israel is careful to argue that Egypt is critical to broad Western interests in the Middle East, its motivation is largely parochial: the American aid underpins the 34-year-old peace treaty between Israel and Egypt, so its withdrawal could lead to the unraveling of the agreement. More immediately, Israel is deeply worried that Egypt’s strife could create more openings for terrorist attacks on its territory from the Sinai Peninsula.”

Wouldn’t one expect that U.S. policy backed the same thing?

    Of wisdom? No one is wise on middle eastern policies. Wow what an unfunny joke.

  3. I have been awaiting this statement. Senator Harry Reid has just compared the situation in Syria with that of the Holocaust. There is no comparison since this is a civil war and no one can definitely state which side is using chemical warfare, if not both. Syria is a quagmire. We will get into it and not have an exit strategy. If we are going to war it should be against Iran; declaring war on Syria is basically fighting Iran. I predict this war will end up like Iraq, which I was also against, with boots on the ground and many young American lives lost. I do not know President Obama personally nor have I ever met him. My position regarding his leadership abilities and policies has never changed. He does not have the ability to be a commander in chief and has lost credibility throughout the world. The TV pictures showing the massacre of women and children have not been verified as originating from one side of this civil war. The only way out of this is the position that Secretary of State made at a press conference, whether he meant it or not, that there should be an international committee to verify the source of chemical warfare. Putin immediately came up with the same suggestion and offered it to Syria. This is the way out for our president, and if it can be worked out, a way to resolve this crisis. Hillary Clinton had also suggested this solution. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

Let me make it plain. There will be mass murder, even genocide in Syria.
