An Unnecessary Evil

The Muslim Brotherhood, once outlawed in Egypt, has had a rebirth in its relations with the United States during the Arab Spring. Their friendship with America is now in full bloom here at the beginning of summer. According to Politico.com, the U.S. is formally resuming contact with the organization, thanks to its rise in political promise after the riots in Cairo and the hasty departure of former Pres. Hosni Mubarak, a pro-Israel tyrant.

One senior U.S. official told Reuters, on condition of anonymity, that the re-establishment of contact is ‘necessary.” Why “necessary”? How “necessary” can it be to aide and abet in the establishment of a worldwide caliphate?

“The political landscape in Egypt has changed, and is changing,” the official said. “It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency.”

Founded in 1927, the Muslim Brotherhood has previously communicated with the U.S. through Brotherhood Members of Parliament who had been technically elected as independents. U.S. diplomats were instructed only to deal with Brotherhood members in their role as Members of Parliament, according to Politico.

Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Mohamed Saad el-Katatni told Reuters that no American contact with the group has yet been made, but he added: “We welcome such relationships with everyone because those relations will lead to clarifying our vision.”

In recent years, the Muslim Brotherhood claims to have renounced violence. The group is not considered a foreign terrorist organization by the United States – but organizations sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood, like Hamas, have not renounced violence against Israel.

Really? It must be only very recently. Sheikh Abdel-Rahman was a member of the Brotherhood and spent time in jail with leading Brotherhood member Sayyid Qutb. Qutb had very pronounced notions about overthrowing Western society – one way or another.

“We do not live by ourselves in this world,” Qutb wrote in Social Justice in Islam, “nor can we live in isolation from it. Thus our interests and our needs are interwoven with this present world, which is coverned by a certain form of civilization involving an outloook completely contradictory to that of Islam. This we shall see later. In one respect, this fact will slow down our pgoress along the path of renewing the true islamic form of live, and in another respect, it will lay additional responsibilities upon us.

“The importance of this last consideration is enhanced by the fact that this Western world with which our interests are interwoven is at the present moment [1953] stronger than we; we do not have today the control over it, or the strength equal to its strength, that we had in the first age of Islam. At the same time, it is hostile to us and in particular, hostile to our religion. Therefore, it wil not permit us to produce a new Islamic system or to renew a truly Islamic form of life, however great the effort we put forth. This result we could only hope for only if we had control of the Western world, if our strength were comparable to its, or if it were honest with us and with our religion to which we seek to return.

“But all this does not mean that return to the Islamic system is impossible. All that it means is that this is a great and difficult task, requiring extraordinary effort. Above all, it demands courage to believe in it, boldness to face the inevitable obstances, patience to endure the hard word demanded, and faith to believe that this is necessary for Islamic society and for mankind as a whole. It demands the fostering of a constructive and positive mentality, whose task will be not simply toe elevate the existing state of things, but rather to produce a new and perfect state. This is our task.”

Qutb went on to quote playwright George Bernard Shaw: “I forecast that the religion of Muhammad wil be accepted in Europe in the near future, for it has already started to gain some acceptance. The priests of the Middle Ages insisted on portraying Islam in the darkest colors, either out of ignorance, or from criminal bigotry. They went to extremes in their hatred of Muhammed in his religion; indeed, they held him to be the anti-Christ. For myself, I find it preferable to call Muhammad the savior of mankind, and I believe that if such a man were given authority over the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems and giving it peace and happiness.

“Europe has seen a great advance in the past years of the twentieth century, and has even started to respect the faith of Muhammad. It may be in the century that lies ahead Europe will make further progres, and will acknowledge the contribution of this faith towards of solution of its problems. Many among my own nation and among all European nations already belong to the religion of Muhammad, a fact which enables us to say that the conversion of Europe to Islam has already begun.” Nur al-Islam Magazine, 1934.

Politico notes that Obama’s 2012 Election campaign vanguard are worried about the Jewish vote. There aren’t that many who are actually concerned about the state of Israel; the young see the Jewish state as a pawn in a bid for global power. Obama’s infamous, dismissive conduct towards Prime Minister Netanyahu, his campaign speeches to the pre-Arab Spring crowds in Cairo, his statements declaring that he’s a “citizen of the world” are sufficient proof of his state of mind. His opening up diplomatic relations – before they’re even actually elected (although there’s little doubt of it) – with the Muslim Brotherhood is one more piece of evidence of our “President’s” inclination towards a worldwide Islamic caliphate.

Egypt will hold parliamentary elections in September, and the country’s military government has promised an election for president by the end of this year.  The race is on for our own 2012 elections. Will our own elections come in time to dislodge this near-traitorous president before the Islamists solidify their evil plans and plunge the world into a global tyranny - and will the Conservatives produce a leader strong enough to stave off the threat?
