Since the beginning of his Presidency Obama has shown repeated support for the Terrorist Group The Muslim Brotherhood.  2 days after once again hosting members of the Terrorist organization at the State Dept. The Brotherhood have declared a new Jihad in Ally Egypt.

Open Jihad Declared in Egypt Following State Dept. Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders

The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.
“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom,” it states.

The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.

Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.

The statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.

“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom,” it states.

Preparation for jihad is a key theme of the Brotherhood’s latest call for jihad.

An image posted with the statement shows two crossing swords and the word “prepare!” between them. Below the swords it reads, “the voice of truth, strength, and freedom.” According to the statement, “that is the motto of the Dawa of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The statement also invokes the well-known Muslim cleric Imam al-Bana, who founded the Brotherhood and has called for the death of Jews.

Imam al-Bana prepared the jihad brigades that he sent to Palestine to kill the Zionist usurpers and the second [Supreme] Guide Hassan al-Hudaybi reconstructed the ‘secret apparatus’ to bleed the British occupiers,” the statement says.

The Brotherhood’s renewed call for jihad comes at a time when current Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is cracking down on the group and imprisoning many of its supporters, who notoriously engaged in violence following the ouster of Brotherhood-ally Mohamed Morsi.

Egypt experts said the timing of this declaration is an embarrassment for the State Department.

“The fact that the Brotherhood issued its call to jihad two days after its meeting at the State Department will be grist for endless anti-American conspiracy theories about a supposed partnership between Washington and the Brotherhood,” said Eric Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). “The State Department should have foreseen what an embarrassment this would be.”

One member of that U.S. delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page.

“Now in the U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone,” reads an Arabic caption posted along with the photo.

Other members of that group included Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor.

When asked on Tuesday evening to comment on the meeting, a State Department official told the Washington Free Beacon, “We meet with representatives from across the political spectrum in Egypt.”

The official declined to elaborate on who may have been hosted or on any details about the timing and substance of any talks.

The meeting was described by a member of the delegation, Maha Azzam as “fruitful,” according to one person who attended a public event in Washington earlier this week hosted by the group.

The call for jihad, while surprising in light of the Brotherhood’s attempts to appear moderate, is part and parcel of organization’s longstanding beliefs, Trager said.

“Muslim Brothers have been committing violent acts for a very long time,” Trager explained. “Under Morsi, Muslim Brothers tortured protesters outside the presidential palace. After Morsi’s ouster, they have frequently attacked security forces and state property. “

“But until now, the official line from the Brotherhood was to support this implicitly by justifying its causes, without justifying the acts themselves,” he added. “ So the Brotherhood’s open call to jihad doesn’t necessarily mean a tactical shift, but a rhetorical one.”

Terrorism expert and national security reporter Patrick Poole said he was struck by the clarity of the Brotherhood’s call.

“It invokes the Muslim Brotherhood’s terrorist past, specifically mentioning the ‘special apparatus’ that waged terror in the 1940s and 1950s until the Nasser government cracked down on the group, as well as the troops sent by founder Hassan al-Banna to fight against Israel in 1948,” he said.

“It concludes saying that the Brotherhood has entered a new stage, warns of a long jihad ahead, and to prepare for martyrdom,” Poole said. “Not sure how much more clear they could be.”

Poole wondered if the call for jihad would convince Brotherhood apologists that the group still backs violence.

“What remains to be seen is how this announcement will be received inside the Beltway, where the vast majority of the ‘experts’ have repeatedly said that the Brotherhood had abandoned its terrorist past, which it is now clearly reviving, and had renounced violence,” Poole said. “Will this development be met with contrition, or silence? And what says the State Department who met with these guys this week?”

The State Department did not respond to a request for comment before press time.

  1. Since the beginning of his Presidency Obama has shown repeated support for the Terrorist Group The Muslim Brotherhood.

    Not true. No need to read the rest.

  2. “In July 2012, Representative Michele Bachmann delivered a letter[1] to the State Department’s inspector general’s office in which she tied Huma Abedin, an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to the Muslim Brotherhood and stated that the Muslim Brotherhood was directing the Obama Administration’s approach to the Middle East.”

    Well if Bachmann says so, it must be so. It’s not like she’s a discredited far-right nut-job or anything.

    Link here

  3. And so long as these are respectable in Republican circles, they’re not to be taken seriously as a political movement. This, and the Bibi speech, show that the Republican Party IS really a bunch of shrill amateurs throwing nonsense out there to see if it sticks- not a movement ready to govern anything.

  4. nonsense Phantom Obama caused the real eruption of the Islamic Spring by his support from the beginning in Egypt. He caused the overthrow of Mubaric and backed the Brotherhood 100 percent even after the military gained control back from the murderous bastards.

    From this moment.

    “A New Beginning” is the name of a speech delivered by United States President Barack Obama on 4 June 2009, from the Major Reception Hall at Cairo University in Egypt. Al-Azhar University co-hosted the event. The speech honors a promise Obama made during his presidential campaign to give a major address to Muslims from a Muslim capital during his first few months as president.

    He aligned himself with and threw his backing to the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s who this speech was attended by and the first demonstration that Obama’s Foreign Policy was an Academic Ideology based set of beliefs being played out by an incompetent.

    You just refuse to acknowledge that his idiocy has been on display from the start.

  5. Troll

    The military govt. killed far more people than the Muslim Brotherhood. The MB were also at least genuinely elected to office when they were allowed to whereas the military regime just seizes power and holds it with violence. I wish the Egyptian people would elect a genuine secular and properly democratic regime (which the military and MB never were ) but the MB – which Obama does not support – still has more legitimacy than the military junta.

  6. Legitimacy my ass the MB is one of the heads of the Hydra known as Radical Islam. They live and rule by the sword and tolerate no one but themselves. Do you believe the Egyptian people to be better off under the MB or the Military.

    The Pallies also voted Hamass into power in Gaza they are also not legit. If you chose a terrorist organization to represent you as your government you give away your legitimacy in favor of terror and oppression.

    You openly declare that you are terrorists by choice and therefore when you are killed like a terrorist it is your own fault, through your own choice..

    As for Obama and his support of the MB it has openly been declared since 2009, and his actions since then have repeatidly proven that support.

  7. As for Obama and his support of the MB it has openly been declared since 2009, and his actions since then have repeatidly proven that support.

    So if he openly expressed his support, you can easily provide the quote wherein he did so.

  8. The fact that he went to Egypt and spoke exclusively to the MB and their supporters while he shut out the Mubarak govt was that declaration.

    If you refuse to see the facts it doesn’t change it from being true. His actions speak for what and where he stands.

  9. Troll

    I dearly wish no electorates anywhere would choose fundamentalist religious parties to govern but just because the MB is a Muslim organisation does not automatically make it a terrorist movement. From my (admittedly limited) knowledge of it’s history and experiences I would say it is not. I would however firmly disagree that Obama is a supporter if it. Why would he be ? Unless Obama was a Muslim himself why would he particularly favour it ?

  10. Troll

    He went to Egypt and spoke to Egyptian people, and if he ‘shut out’ the unelected military Mubarak regime , good.

  11. Colm do you believe the MB to not be a terrorist organization?

    What do you call people that tell you to martyr yourself in the name of Allah as they just did in Egypt?

  12. He does not have to be a Muslim to support it.

    The American Academic Elite which is what Obama is believe that supporting these groups is the path to peace with them. It’s naive and proven wrong, but it is the core of how he see’s it.

  13. Troll

    The MB is warning its supporters that some of them may die in the struggle gainst the military regime. When your or my govt. sends soldiers to fight abroad they are also essentially telling some of them to martyr themselves for the security of their country. Does this make our governments terrorists ?

  14. He spoke to Mubarak when Mubarak led and he spoke to the MB govt when it led.

    You talk to the leaders of countries. It would be kind of dumb not to do so. That is how you influence them.

  15. Phantom

    Well I know for a fact that Obama has spoken to Netanyahu, so according to Troll’s logic your president is a great Bibi supporter 😉

  16. My country does not tell our soldiers to die for our country, my country tells our soldiers to help the enemy soldiers die for theirs.

  17. Troll

    That’s what every terrorist group says too. After all, they don’t tell their members NOT to kill the enemy do they ?

  18. If you can look at the Obama Foreign policy, and what condition the ME was in before he was President and what condition it is in now and believe that he holds no responsibility in it….

    Then you are more hopelessly lost from reality than anything I could ever say to sway your opinion.

    I’ll leave it at that.

  19. Chamberlain spoke to Hitler did he support him? No did the policies he maid with him lead to disaster… yes.

    The road to both hell and war are paved with the good intentions of the incompetent.

  20. Colm, Phantom –

    Would you like to inform Troll that the Obama government supported the overthrow of the MB government by the Egyptian military, and that it continues to support the presidency of Field Marshal al-Sisi?

  21. Pete is correct

    And Troll you said that Obama supports MB not just that he had bad policy

    Another Group Obama Supports
    By The Troll On January 30th, 2015

    Since the beginning of his Presidency Obama has shown repeated support for the Terrorist Group The Muslim Brotherhood. 2 days after once

  22. the Obama government supported the overthrow of the MB government by the Egyptian military

    Pete

    Dontcha geddit? That just proves that the Muslim president is secretly in league with the MB.

  23. Troll should move to Texas, he’d fit right in with all of the big hat, no cattle, ignorant teavangelicals who seem intent on ruining my state.

    We’re seriously considering a move when the last son graduates in four years. The level of legislative insanity fueled by copious amounts of tea party voter stupidity has reached unbelievable heights of absurdity in Texas over the past six years, a change which has naturally resulted in a hash of seriously bad public policy measures and embarrassing episodes of cringe-worthy publicity.

    I’m not sure why tea party people are so collectively stupid or rabidly religious, but I’m rather done with their hallelujah brand of wild-eyed idiocy and bizarre worship of brazen political grifters.

  24. Move to NY Daphne and help raise funds for Hilary. You claimed you used to hold Republican fund raisers, but your time here has shown you to be nothing but a bile filed Liberal. Join with the rest of your crowd.

  25. Mahons prove me wrong on anything I ever posted besides one misquote.

    You accuse me of falsehood on a regular basis. You have never been able to show me to be false other than that one misquote.

    What is it in the DNA of a Lawyer that compels them to lie?

  26. Since the beginning of his Presidency Obama has shown repeated support for the Terrorist Group The Muslim Brotherhood

    Obama has never once expressed ” support for the Muslim Brotherhood ”

    This is one of those right wing anti Obama talking points that has existed despite a complete lack of substance to it.

    Please retract this.

  27. No

    If you want to live in delusion and deny his repeated and continuing gestures of support for the Muslim Brotherhood you’re more than welcome to do so Phantom.

    I will not and the preponderance of evidence is on my side. Now has he come out and said “yeah these MB guys are the people I want to help” no.

    But he has provided material, financial, and political support his entire presidency. His actions in Egypt alone bear that out. Plus his administration has hosted them in the White House the state dept, and even to coach the military on “social issues”.

    You don’t want to believe so you refuse what has been put before your face over and over, the NY Times hasn’t spelled it out for you so it isn’t true.

  28. that’s right Phantom it’s just right wing conspiracy… I know it’s because he’s black.

  29. oh gee a wiki post…. I can find a wiki post that claim aliens landed at roswell.

    Phantom I understand that you have chosen to refuse accept his support of the MB and nothing I or anyone says will sway you from that view. All it attests to is your own narrow view that you choose to look at things.

    1000 stories can be found of where the MB has received support from this administration, from crazy sites to legit sites. You continue to choose to believe what you want.

    The best part is it tells how truly ignorant you are of the Presidents ideology and background. He doesn’t support these people because he is a Muslim or secretly a member of the brotherhood or anything else along those lines.

    He gives these people support because he was raised and trained in the ideology that these people are hostile towards us because of how we have treated them. His policies are driven by the belief that if we work with them they will no longer hate us and the world will be one big united family of understanding.

    He supports them out of that motivation. You denying it only enforces that you don’t understand our Presidents whole philosophy of fundamental change.

  30. Your last comment makes some sense in explaining a reason why You believe Obama has behaved as he has towards Egypt’s rulers. However, being conciliatory towards an elected government is not the same as being a specific ‘supporter’ of the MB as if he approves of their ideology or political platform. It’s just that Obama has a different view on how to deal with conflicting or controversial political situations than say GWB would have done. You many not approve of Obama’s policy but it doesn’t make him an honorary member of the MB.

  31. And you have given no evidence that he supports the MB because there is no evidence for such a silly conspiracy theory as that.

    The fact that you hate the guy does not give you carte blanche to assert false things against him. The right wing conspiracy tales against Obama – the birth certificate being another – have only served to make the Republican fringe look like a pack of idiots not grounded in reality.

  32. if I thought you would be convinced by perponderance of the evidence I would post play Allan and post the links.

    Since you however categorize the whole thing under the many things that fall into the fact that you suffer from Tea Party Derangement Syndrome it’s not worth the effort.

    You have a closed mind on many things.

  33. Phantom you make no one look like an idiot but yourself, you spout things that “you know” the Tea Party believe. Yet you know no one that is in any of the 1000s of Tea Party groups, you’ve never attended a Tea Party meeting or rally yet you are in your mind an authority.

    those are the actions and statements of a fool

  34. Also I do not hate the guy, I believe him to be incompetent to the point of him being a threat to our nation.

    I also never was part of the birther crowd.

    It’s kind of pathetic that you never seem to debate or argue my views with statements that I have made myself.

    You accuse me of towing the Republican Party line, yet I have not been a member of any party since McCain ran. You accuse me of being a birther even though I have made fun of those people. You accuse me of claiming the President is a Muslim which I also have never done.

    You might have credibility with others on this site, and I may have none. The truth though is when I criticize you I do it for positions you have spelled out and statements that you have made.

    You criticize me for positions and statements made by others and groups that I don’t belong to.

    Your just lazy at best and unable to argue with me on my actual views. I call you bubble boy because those are the walls of your bubble. You show no ability or willingness to address the actual things that I say you just parrot leftist talking points as if they have weight.

    They don’t and it makes you look foolish.

  35. Bla bla

    You still have given zero evidence that Obama supports the MB

    And who else here on ATW shares your view and can produce a shred of evidence supporting it?

    Which serious US, European or other commentator is saying that Obama supports that group?

    This, like the ” Clinton is a rapist ” stuff, is libelous nonsense. Who do you think you’re fooling? At least the ” Clinton is a Rapist and even worse a Democrat ” has accusations from alleged victims behind it.

  36. Please provide a list of those you consider serious US, European or other commentators on the site.

    This is just like the Clinton Charges. I ask you what was Clinton Impeached for?

    Having sex with Monica, or Lying under oath?

    You refuse to acknowledge any view other than your own, you want to dismiss everything as just rightwing attack bile. That is who you are. The issue of his support for the MB has been printed in 100s of articles in the US and GB yet Phantom says it’s nothing the Voice of Authority of American opinion has spoken.

    Phantom you may be right, I may be wrong. Your position however on my views are crap. Proven by the fact that you can’t even bring yourself to address the falsehoods you claim about me as I laid them out.

    You live in a bubble, you base your views on nothing that you can point to and you have falsely accused me of several things, and your only response is obfuscation.

    Conversation ended. You lack both balls and brains.

  37. You don’t get to ask questions until you can at least give one bit of proof or name one other believer in this conspiracy tale. And Michelle Bacmann does not count.

  38. you say I can’t name one yet you start by telling me who doesn’t count…lol

    Why not her? Are your achievements in life greater than hers? Is your experience greater than hers?

    You speak as to belittle who and what this woman is and has accomplished as compared to who? Certainly not yourself.

    A woman that managed to become a member in one of the highest levels of Government, a woman that was able to get tens of thousands of people to vote for her. Have you achieved that?

    She may be a joke to you, and your evaluation of her must be sage worthy after all tens of thousands have voted for you to represent them haven’t they?

    You are a human ostrich the list of things that cause you to shove your head in the ground for a perspective seems to grow daily.

  39. Troll

    Your comment above about the electoral achievements of Michelle Bachman could also be said about Nancy Pelosi. Do you hold her in equal accomplishment regard ?

  40. yes I do.

    I totally disagree with her politics and point of view, but I have not equaled her accomplishment of not only being elected and re-elected but becoming the first Lady Speaker of the House. She deserves credit and respect for that.

    Running for office and winning is a herculean task. Once you hold office it gets easier and easier and is one of the reasons for term limits however it is still a task that very few people can accomplish.

    Whether you agree with any of these peoples politics or not reaching the Level of a member of the House of Representatives or the Senate is something very few have done, and can do.

  41. There is a lot of wild emotional evasions and lashing out but -still- no direct or indirect evidence that Obama supports MB.

    This guy believes that the president supports the MB and that he is a Muslim ( since all supporters of MB would be muslim ). This is the wildest conspiracy tale ever expressed on these pages. Troll and Allan are intellectual equals, soul brothers.

    They both demonize those that they are prejudiced against and accuse them of the most heinous crimes. There is no filter at all.

    Back to Obama – if he was a supporter of a terrorist organization as Troll says, all responsible political and other actors would be demanding his impeachment for this. There would be no other topic on the media. Yet there is no such talk by any serious voice. Troll heard this libel from some bum on the internet. Thats why he can’t name any serious journalists or others who support this conspiracy theory.

  42. This guy believes that the president supports the MB and that he is a Muslim ( since all supporters of MB would be muslim ).

    are you really that intellectually dishonest Phantom ?

    You choose to disagree with my point of view which is fine, why Lie about my position?

    I have repeatedly stated that I don’t think the man is a Muslim. Yet rather than make your case against the merits of what I have said you’re compelled to Lie.

  43. All supporters of the MB are muslim. 100 percent of them. No non muslims would -support- a muslim supremicist organization.

    Your views on this make no sense at all. Its all Allan, its all unexamined.

  44. Here is an article that stresses some of the very same points that I do.

    http://dailycaller.com/2015/01/12/obama-sides-with-muslim-brotherhood-in-islamic-reform-debate-video/

    So your also making the statement that all the Universities that have hosted the MB to speak to their students are now Islamic Umma’s ?

    The members of Academia look at this issue in a paper world. Obama is an academic. The Academics support all sorts of groups and views that go against the basis that this nation was founded on. They support and host groups like the MB, the support and host those that champion Marxism. So in your view ALL our universities are Muslim and Marxist? That is the logical flow of your argument.

    http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/mb-front-succeeds-partnering-us-universities/

    Phantom I believe you are being an ass just to be an ass. It’s a shame.

    I’m not going to continue this discussion with you because you have lied about what I have said in Black and White. You try to provoke instead of debate and I pitty you on the lameness of your tactics.

  45. This is the wildest conspiracy tale ever expressed on these pages

    Any topic or subject which does not carry a government approved stamp as ‘evidence’ will not be tolerated.

    Poor Phantom, poor, poor Phantom.

  46. This is the wildest conspiracy tale ever expressed on these pages

    Any topic or subject which does not carry a government approved stamp as ‘evidence’ will not be tolerated.

    Poor Phantom.

  47. Troll

    I didn’t say that no one agreed with you in thinking that Obama is a supporter of a Muslim supremicist / terrorist organization. I ask for any serious thinkers agree with you, and you google up some daily caller whatever.

    If you’re to prove that the president of the United States is a supporter of muslim terror you need to do better than that.

    A dignified response would have been ” sorry you really busted me there, master. I flew off the handle in a tage and said something unwise ”

    Until you do so, you will be on the same page as perky harri, who has unglued himself from Allan long enough to express support for you here, and of course you will be on the same page as Allan

    Do you like being o n the same page as these persons? Do you really?

  48. Do you like being o n the same page as these persons? Do you really?

    He debates with you Phantom, a paid snoop, so he is not that fussy.

  49. Yeesh

    Who pays me? Can I get a raise?

    Water seeks its own level. I welcome Allan harri and Troll being allies and brothers to one another . It should have happened long ago. The paranoid world views and wide eyed gullibility are very similar

  50. Phantom, on February 1st, 2015 at 4:39 PM Said:

    Yeesh

    Who pays me? Can I get a raise?

    I doubt it, you really are not very good at it.

    Your supervisor must be at his/her wits end watching Allan@ making you look like a chump day in and day out.

    Now, I realise all lonely children like to have the last word, (It has been noted it is Phantoms trait) I blame the parents for that .. so, over to you as usual Phantom.

    Knock yerself out son.

  51. Harri

    Do you share Troll’s lazy belief that Obama supports a Muslim terrorist / Muslim supremacist group? A belief that can only make sense if Obama was himself a muslim?

    ( no surprise that Alex Jones has peddled this theory – and has also linked Obama to anti Christian pogroms in Kenya as organized by Obama’s extended family of terrorists apparently )

  52. Harri

    Do you share Troll’s lazy belief that Obama supports a Muslim terrorist / Muslim supremacist group? A belief that can only make sense if Obama was himself a muslim?

    As far as I can work out, Barry O’blimey would be hard pressed to run a bath let alone the United States of America, however, I am pretty certain that if Obama supported any Muslim terrorist group. someone, somewhere in higher authority (other than those on ATW) might just have noticed by now and bought it up in conversation. 😉

  53. Do not underestimate your opponent

    Guys like Troll underestimated him into two terms in office

    I will never understand why some always underestimate an adversary. It is the worst imaginable strategy. It guarantees defeat.

  54. Phantom

    Thanks for that I never knew my mom and dad were rebels fighting tyranny every spring when they planted a vegetable garden, Fight the power!

  55. no Phantom you are a bubble boy New Yorker that is a member of the upper 10% of our society. You have a High paying job, no family and you don’t drive to get to work. You are part of a very small group.

    You spew hate about people that you don’t know, and you reiterate liberal talking points from liberal rags and conversations that surround you on a daily basis.

    You don’t understand the Constitution and you dismiss it’s importance.

    If you had any balls or brains they would show, but instead all you have is your narrow little view and ego that makes you think you know way more than you do.

    Prove me wrong. Go to the other threas where your ignorance is even more fully on display and explain why your right and I’m wrong about Bibi’s speach.

    But you won’t for two reasons you can’t, and you’re a wuss

  56. Troll

    I didn’t say that no one agreed with you in thinking that Obama is a supporter of a Muslim supremicist / terrorist organization. I ask for any serious thinkers agree with you, and you google up some daily caller whatever.

    Yes it’s not from the NY Times… so it doesn’t count.

    Please provide a list of Phantom Approved Publications.

    I don’t post Alex Jones asshole, but you don’t link to anything that support your views on any topic. Post one that matches your view of the Tea Party.

    Come on put your credibility on the line. (of course you don’t really have any except in your own delusion)

  57. ball-less and brainless. You have nothing that supports your view, you’re a minority in any society due to your social condition and status and you do not relate to anyone’s point of view that you can point to.
