  • Turkey to Welcome Seven Muslim Brotherhood Exiles from Qatar

    09/16/2014 7:33:36 AM PDT · by markomalley · 4 replies
    Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that Ankara would welcome seven top Muslim Brotherhood (MB) figures who are being forced to leave Qatar after heavy pressure from Gulf countries. In a press meeting with journalists after returning from an official trip to the Arab country, Erdogan said the Islamist leaders can come to Turkey like any other foreign visitor, if they wish to do so. Turkey's ruling moderate Islamist AK Party backed the Muslim Brotherhood after Egypt's army ousted president Mohamed Morsi from office in July 2013. He added that none of the figures have yet contacted Turkish officials...

    A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adviser long engulfed in controversy over his radical views was let go from his role in the department last week after a long fight by lawmakers and others to revoke the individual’s privileges at DHS.

After years of controversy about his status at DHS, Elibiary announced his final day with the department on Twitter earlier this month and said he would remain close to the agency. Media outlets have raised questions about the circumstances surrounding his departure, speculating...

    Mohamed Elibiary announced that he has left his position as a senior advisor with the Department of Homeland Security.

    Leaders of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood group and allied clerics said on Saturday that they are departing Qatar, where they had sought refuge following the ouster of Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and the crackdown on his supporters. Their presence in Qatar had severely strained Doha’s relations with Egypt as well as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, all of which view the more than 85-year-old Islamist movement as a threat. The expulsion threatens to further isolate the group, which rose to power in Egypt through a string of post-Arab Spring elections but suffered a dramatic fall from grace during...

    This Thursday marks the 13th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 al Qaeda terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Airlines Flight 93. On that infamous day, 19 hijackers killed 2,996 innocents in a grand declaration of war against the United States, leaving a permanent scar in Manhattan’s skyline. Two wars followed, both which were tentatively won by President George W. Bush, and subsequently lost by President Barack Obama. Indeed, the emergence of the Islamic State (aka ISIS/ISIL) can be traced directly back to the events that followed September 11, 2001. Today, leaders in our federal...

During the meeting, which was confirmed to the Daily Beast‘s Ben Jacobs by multiple congressmen, Cheney accused Obama of “facilitating the Muslim Brotherhood” with his policies. According to Rep.

Egypt charged ousted president Mohamed Mursi and several other people on Saturday with endangering national security by leaking state secrets and sensitive documents to Qatar, dealing a further blow to his outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. Relations between Qatar, a Gulf Arab state, and Egypt have been icy since July 2013, when then-Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi toppled Mursi after mass unrest against his rule. Qatar had supported Mursi, who is already in jail...

He added, however, that Egypt “pursued the will of the people” and did not give in...

The answer is strangely simple. ISIS beheads liberals too, in much the same way that the Tsarnaev brothers set off pressure cooker bombs in a predominantly liberal city – Boston.

    The Islamic state, formerly known as ISIS, is a one-time affiliate of al-Qaeda in Iraq and Syria. In an effort to spread their own flavor or Jihad around the globe, these Islamists are fashioning their own country and identifying rivals of their particular terror network. The success of their takeover of Northern Iraq has attracted foreign fighters to the Sunni controlled Caliphate. Many of the recruits from Western nations are trained and then returned to their home country to create terror cells loyal to the Islamic state. Yet the rapid growth of an Islamic State may also be its Achilles...

Obama called Netanyahu while the premier was conferring with his senior ministers about how to proceed in Gaza.

Others argued that the only way to truly destroy the tunnels, and keep them destroyed, is for...

    Decked out in keffiyahs and stocked with vulgar posters, anti-Israel demonstrators have been descending upon cities across the United States rallying for what they call peace. One such group gathered on Sunday, July 20, 2014, just blocks from the Israeli consulate in Miami. The flier for this protest declares, “Stop the bombing – Stop the Killing – Free Palestine” and includes logos from: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Florida, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Students for Justice in Palestine, the American Muslim Association of North America, American Muslims for Emergency & Relief, Syrian American Council of South...

    I am a huge fan of Gov. Sarah Palin. No, I don’t think she should be president (or vice-president) but she certainly could not have done worse than the present occupants of those two offices. My enthusiasm for Ms. Palin is based on her ability to give relentless and unapologetic voice to a vast swath of the populace generally ignored by a press corps that believes that all wisdom is found within a sixty mile swath surrounding Washington, D.C. And even more so because of her ability to drive liberals crazy – and I mean stark raving, red-in-the-face, frothing-at-the-mouth, snot-slobbering,...

    Hamas builds tunnels and rockets to kidnap and kill Jews, has a charter that calls for the killing of all Jews wherever they live, launches missile attacks against Israelis, uses UNWRA facilities to hide rockets, spreads anti-Semitism and claims of war crimes against Israel, has become unpopular in Gaza, and is losing support in Egypt and the Arab world.  And now the US wants to reward and rescue them with a vast influx of money?

     – The U.N. Human Rights Council will hold an emergency session on Wednesday to consider a draft resolution that condemns Israel repeatedly for its military offensive against Hamas, but does not mention the terrorist group once.The resolution calls for the establishment of an international commission of inquiry to probe allegations that Israel has committed war crimes and violated international law. Alongside multiple criticisms of Israel – whose conduct the council “condemns,” “strongly condemns” and “condemns in the strongest terms” – there is a single reference in the three-page type written draft to rocket attacks on Israeli civilians

    The man who suggested that the US shoot down Israeli airplanes is at it again. Surveying the Israeli/Hamas conflict, Zbigniew Brzezinski couldn't summon up one word of condemnation for Hamas' intentional targeting of Israeli civilians with thousands of rockets and mortars. Instead, Jimmy Carter's national security adviser had harsh words for only one person: Benjamin Netanyahu. Appearing on today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski said he didn't include Netanyahu in the category of leaders man enough to negotiate, accusing the Israeli PM of having "scuttled" peace efforts--again without a word of criticism for Hamas. Zbigniew ended his anti-Israel tirade by decrying that...
  • A blow to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood as Israel crushes Hamas

    Experts in the Middle East conflict expected to see a demand on Israel to liberate particular terrorists as a ransom for the kidnapped boys. Such exchanges have been typical of the past. But why not this time? The answer: Hamas wanted to entice Egypt into warfare with Israel in order to help the Muslim Brotherhood regain power in Egypt. Hamas had a broader agenda for the kidnappings, murders, and rocket fire into Israel. Its aggression stirred up pro-Palestinian, pro-Hamas opinion by Egypt’s politicians, journalists and media in order to put pressure on Al-Sisi’s new government to help the “oppressed” Gazans....

    “I take my hat off to Israel, and I say to the army, the people, and the Israeli leadership – you’re good men,” enthused Tawfik Okasha, owner and anchor of the Egyptian television channel Al-Faraeen. Although it’s true that Okasha has a personal vendetta against the Muslim Brotherhood, which closed down his channel during their rule, statements such as these haven’t been heard in Egypt in generations. There’s no doubt that the official and public discourse in Egypt is more favorable to Israel than it is to Hamas, but it’s still too early to rejoice about any kind of miracle...
