Borrowing from our enemies to support another enemy, the muslim brotherhood

This is straight from Foreign Confidential(formerly China Confidential. Confidential reporter still runs this awesome site and the new name is part of a gradual expansion that will, when completed be outstanding.) I am changing not even one word or letter from this post and be sure to follow the link to Sarah Palin's Facebook note. Like her or not, she is spot on and I do like many things about her. But that is for another feed.

Palin: Obama Borrows from China to Give to Muslim Brotherhood
By Confidential Reporter

Should we be borrowing money from China to turn around and give it to the Muslim Brotherhood?

Given that we are running massive deficits and are drowning in more than $14 trillion in debt, and despite not knowing who will rule Egypt until its election this fall, this strange strategy may be the end result given President Obama’s announcement that he is committing $2 billion to Egypt’s “new government.” It’s part of a $20 billion foreign aid package laid out with the Group of 8 countries in Europe today.

Now, given that Egypt has a history of corruption when it comes to utilizing American aid, it is doubtful that the money will really help needy Egyptian people. Couple that with the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is organized to have a real shot at taking control of Egypt’s government, and one has to ask why we would send money (that we don’t have) into unknown Egyptian hands?

Throwing borrowed money around is not sound economic policy. And throwing borrowed money around the developing world is not sound foreign policy. Foreign assistance should go to American allies that need it and appreciate it, and for humanitarian purposes when it can truly make a difference.

Considering the Obama Administration’s continued strange strategies on the economy and foreign policy has us counting down the days to the next election. November 2012 can’t come soon enough.

Foreign Confidential Comment

No foreign aid to the Muslim Brotherhood. A corollary is no policy that emboldens or in any way encourages the Muslim Brotherhood and rightwing political Islam, or Islamism. What too few Americans appreciate is that their President--America's most leftwing-ever President--is actually pro-Islamist. This is worth repeating: the most leftwing-ever leader of the world's greatest democracy is pro-rightwing political Islam. Like other leftists and liberal loons, Obama sees Islam as the religion of the poor, and the clerical fascist creed that has become practically synonymous with organized Islam as somehow progressive. The sword of Islam, according to Obama and those advising him (e.g. Samantha Power) slices in sync with and serves to advance the "moral arc of history."

His policy from the outset has been to narrow the definition of the Islamist foe to Al Qaeda and "irreconcilable" Taliban, and to engage (appease and attempt to align with) all other Islamist entities and organizations, including: the Hitler-admiring Muslim Brotherhood, which spawned Al Qaeda and its offshoots; nuclear-arming Iran; and supposed "moderate" wings of Hamas and Hezbollah.

As this reporter predicted, the long overdue killing of AQ leader Osama Bin Laden has given Obama political cover to be even more pro-Islamist. Put differently, Obama now seems to see himself as a sort of leftwing 007, an agent of radical change, if you will, with a license to kill ... Israel.

Fact is, Obama betrayed Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, who for three decades following the Islamist assassination of his predecessor, Anwar Sadat, had been an American ally and had maintained his country's peace pact with neighboring Israel. Obama effectively gave a green light to the Egyptian revolution by emboldening the Muslim Brotherhood through a series of secret US-MB meetings and by making sure that the group's leaders were prominently present at his disgraceful Cairo speech--an address to the so-called Muslim world, which is itself an Islamist concept as it assumes the existence of a global Muslim nation united by belief in the Koran to a degree that transcends all political, national, and ethnic boundaries and differences. For this alone--for validating and pandering to this core Islamist concept--Obama should have been/should now be rejected by all decent Americans and their friends abroad.

POSTSCRIPT: The Left's alliance with Islamism recalls the infamous Hitler-Stalin pact. But even the foreign Communists who stuck by Stalin for the most part didn't dare argue that Naziism was "progressive." In contrast, today's Left is positively enthusiastic about its alliance with rightwing political Islam. Such is their hatred of America, Israel, capitalism, Judaism and Christianity, Western democracy.

Similarly, Obama's engagement of Islamism is worse than Neville Chamberlain's appeasement of Nazi Germany. Chamberlain was not pro-Nazi; he foolishly believed that Germany under Hitler could be satisfied with territorial concessions and that a policy of appeasement could preserve the peace in Europe. Obama, on the other hand, is pro-Islamist. He believes in oxymoronic Islamist/Islamic democracy, or Islamocracy. Imagine FDR and Churchill pressing for negotiations with "moderate" branches of the Nazi party....
