Will the US Help the Muslim Brotherhood Take Jordan?

It would be illuminating to know what further communication there has been, and is today, between the U.S. administration and the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood.

While Anes might seem as if he is just a son angry at his father, it is important to bear in mind that his father head Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood, and that his father is deeply radical.

Hamam Sai’d also recently headed the Muslim Brotherhood-Jordanian delegation to Cairo to discuss the possibility of Egypt’s resuming the supply of natural gas to Jordan – a supply that had been interrupted after Mubarak was toppled. Jordan’s Foreign Minister, Nasser Jodeh, described the visit as the result of a “discussion” between the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood and the Jordanian government.

U.S. Embassy Amman cable, made public by Wikileaks, reported that Hamam Sa’id, “in a posting on the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood website, wrote, “[The Muslim Brotherhood] has become an idea…it is no longer just a movement or group. No legislation will succeed in eliminating or abolishing it. Those who imagine that laws can curb the Brotherhood’s activity are deluding themselves.”

Another U.S. Embassy Amman cable from March 2008, made public by Wikileaks, shows that the U.S. Embassy in Amman has been in touch with Hammam Sa’id’s close ally, Saud Abu Mahfouz, who—according to the leaked cable—told the US Embassy Amman political officers that Hammam Sai’d was “his Shaykh,” as well as other senior members of Hamam Sai’d’s associates.

The cable also affirms that, “The future of the Islamist movement in Jordan” is with Hammam Sai’d’s religious conservatives, in addition to other conservative Islamist political activists; at the same time the cable highlights the admiration Hammam Sai’d’s Islamist followers have for him.

It would be illuminating to know what further communication there has been, and is today, between the U.S. administration and the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood.

If the U.S. administration continues to tolerate the Muslim Brotherhood’s hijacking of the Arab Spring revolution, it appears that Hammam Sai’d holds serious political weight with the Islamists in Jordan, and seemingly knows how to attract followers, despite failing to impress his son.

With a US administration that has such a pronounced record of appeasing Islamists, it is not unlikely that Hamam Sai’d will be accepted and tolerated by the U.S. establishment — at the expense of moderate Jordanians and the secular Jordanian opposition.

    The Marxist anti-Semite Barack Obama and his renegade administration–want the Muslim Brotherhood to take over in Jordan just as they did [from the beginning] in Egypt and in Libya–and they wanted this because–they wanted to completely aline these nations against Israel with the intent of destroying Israel!

  2. Rc Fowler says:

    Fortunately for America and Israel–Barack Obama will be defeated in this election cycle!

  3. Liad Bar-el says:

    Yes, Barack Hussein Obama will help the Muslim Brotherhood as he has since he has been president and it may be that if this prophesy is correct, he will continue because he may not have finished his tasks.

    In Yechezkel 38:2, "Gog, of the land Magog, Prince…" The word 'Nasi / Prince' ends with an Alef. Count every 7th letter and you get Vav, Bais, Alef, Mem, Hay; which spells Obama.

    Is Barack Hussein Obama the "promised warrior" coming to help the Hidden Imam of Shiite Muslims conquer the world?
    The question has made the rounds in Iran since last month, when a pro-government Web site published a Hadith (or tradition) from a Shiite text of the 17th century. The tradition comes from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light) by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132 volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam.

    According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet's cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a "tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West." Commanding "the strongest army on earth," the new ruler in the West will carry "a clear sign" from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: "Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us."

    In a curious coincidence Obama's first and second names–Barack Hussein–mean "the blessing of Hussein" in Arabic and Persian. His family name, Obama, written in the Persian alphabet, reads O Ba Ma, which means "he is with us," the magic formula in Majlisi's tradition.

    Given the MB's control of hillary, and bama's fealty to them, especially in light of his cover up of their complicity in the Bengazi Massacre, no surprise that they will push an overthrow in Jordan, as they have in Egypt and are doing in Syria and Lebanon.
