But What If Michele Bachmann Is Right?

Republican Representative, Michele Bachmann, and four other congressmen recently expressed their concern that the Muslim Brotherhood might be infiltrating the State Department.  The liberal media and her own party leaders came down on her so hard that the Democrats didn’t need to say a word.  If for no other reason, the presence of Huma Abedin working in the department as a high-ranking aide to Secretary Clinton should be a concern.  Ms. Abedin, aka Mrs. Anthony Weiner, is the daughter of parents with very close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  What is she doing in the State Department?  The question needs to be asked.
We’ve come a long way from World War II when we certainly would not have allowed Japanese people to hold sensitive government positions.  Have we become so oblivious to what is going on in the world that we don’t understand that the Muslim Brotherhood is a very real threat to our country and our freedom?  Not “may become” or “could be” – “is.”
Here’s a quick history lesson.  The Brotherhood was established in Egypt in 1928 by a devotee of Adolf Hitler.  It was outlawed by Egypt after a failed assassination of President Nasser, but it has made a resurgence that has been so successful that one of its members is the new President of Egypt.  The leader of the Brotherhood said recently, “Arab and Muslim regimes are betraying their people by failing to confront the Muslims’ real enemies – not only Israel, but the United States.  Waging jihad against both of these infidels is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded.”  We ought to take that statement very seriously.  But the current administration doesn’t appear to.   Here is a partial chronology of incidents the demonstrate how the administration has been cozying up to the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • The Brotherhood's spiritual leader — Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi — writes an open letter to Obama justifying terrorism as a direct response to U.S. foreign policy.
  • President Obama delivers his infamous apology to Muslims in Egypt.  Although he officially invited banned Brotherhood leaders to attend, he snubbed President Mubarak and the nation of Israel during the trip.
  • Obama appoints a Brotherhood-tied Islamist — Rashad Hussain — as U.S. envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, which supports the Brotherhood.
  • State Department lifts visa ban on Tariq Ramadan, suspected terrorist and Egyptian-born grandson of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna.
  • Hussain meets with Ramadan at an American-sponsored conference attended by U.S. and Brotherhood officials.
  • Hussain meets with the Brotherhood's grand mufti in Egypt.
  • Obama meets one-on-one with Egypt's foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who later remarks on Nile TV:  "The American president told me in confidence that he is a Muslim."
  • Riots organized by the Brotherhood erupt in Cairo.
  • The White House fails to back longtime ally Mubarak, who flees Cairo.
  • White House sends Intelligence Czar James Clapper to Capitol Hill to testify that the group is moderate and "largely secular."
  • Qaradawi, exiled from Egypt for 30 years, is given a hero's welcome in Tahrir Square, where he raises the banner of jihad.
  • William Taylor — Hilary Clinton's special coordinator for Middle East transitions, and a longtime associate of Brotherhood apologists —gives Brotherhood and other Egyptian Islamists special training to prepare for the post-Mubarak elections.
  • The Brotherhood wins control of Egyptian parliament, vowing to tear up Egypt's peace treaty with Israel and reestablishes ties with Hamas and Hezbollah.
  • Obama gives Mideast speech demanding Israel relinquish land to Palestinians, while still refusing to visit Israel.
  • The State Department formalizes ties with Egypt's Brotherhood, letting diplomats deal directly with Brotherhood party officials in Cairo.
  • April:  The administration quietly releases $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the new Egyptian regime.
  • June: Morsi wins presidency amid widespread reports of electoral fraud and voter intimidation by gun-toting Brotherhood thugs — including blockades of entire streets to prevent Christians from going to the polls. The Obama administration turns a blind eye and immediately recognizes Morsi as victor.
  • June: In a victory speech, Morsi vows to instate Sharia law, turning Egypt into an Islamic theocracy.
  • June: State grants visa to an identified Egyptian terrorist so that he can accept an invitation from the White House to meet with Obama's deputy national security adviser, who listens to their demands for the release of the Blind Sheik.
  • July: Obama invites Morsi to visit the White House this September.
And that’s just the highlight reel.
Rep. Bachmann’s concern is about infiltration, not about impending war.  It’s about potential security breaches, not political rhetoric or threats.  Americans have a hard time dealing with subtleties (not that “Kill the infidel Americans” is subtle).  That makes us vulnerable.  Our government’s current predisposition to making nice, holding hands, and singing Kumbayah with those who seek to destroy us, while still trying to portray itself as Israel’s best friend, is a mistake of epic proportions.
Pray earnestly.  Pray continually.  And live a holy life, seeking first His righteousness, so that you will be blessed and your prayers will be heard.  God bless you.  God bless Michele Bachmann.  And God bless America.
