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?

National Lawyers Guild:Sworn enemy of Israel & the legal arm of Palestinian terrorism since the ’70s

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.

For too long the media and international community have been preaching that “Palestinians” bear no responsibility for the consequences of their decisions and they are passive victims of the conflict.

If the Obama/Kerry peace deal does go through, what would the risks be?

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

A large number of pro-Obama and radical or even anti-Israel cadre are Jews.

Does anyone think the Palestinian Authority will resist daily attacks from Hamas and Fatah radicals?

Secret Service security arrangements were overruled.

The Obama Administration plan is very simple, assuming that everything goes smoothly–which of course it will not.

The less you know about Islam, the better. Ignorance is strength.
