The same Muslim Brotherhood whose member, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, was the architect of the September 11, 2001 islamic terror attacks that murdered 3000 innocent people on our own soil for jihad. The same Muslim Brotherhood whose mission for America is, "A kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within, sabotaging its miserable house with their [i.e., Americans'] hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions."
The same Taliban that helped Osama bin Laden, the same Taliban that forced the Afghan people to live under the evil brutality of sharia where even laughter was outlawed, the same Taliban that throws acid in the faces of girls who try to go to school, the same Taliban that our soldiers have been fighting for nearly ten years, the same Taliban who continue to torture maim and kill innocent civillians and our precious troops on a routine basis.
The malicious seeds Obama planted are already yielding rotten fruit. Immediately after the announcement that Obama wanted to have official relations with the Muslim Brotherhood, the MB expressed that they were pleased about it and then demanded that the United States disassociate from Israel (see Weasel Zippers for story). The Taliban just the other day kidnapped, tortured and executed a British soldier and then paraded around with his body like a trophy (story at Gateway Pundit).
The Taliban and the Muslim Brotherhood are our enemies, that's not just me saying it, it is what they themselves say in their own words! What's next? Will Obama ally himself with Hamas and Hezbolah? Oh wait, he already has, when he demanded that Israel be cut in half and that the holiest sites of Christianity and Judaism be handed over to genocidal islamic fanatics. Will he get friendly with Al Qaeda? Oh, wait, he already has, using our money and our military in Libya to fight alongside Al Qaeda and other jihadis in his illegal war there.
The Obama administration has a history of sympathizing with evil, betraying our allies, and appeasing our adversaries at America's expense, especially when it comes to coddling islamonazis and throwing Israel under the bus, as he did when he put Israel on a list of nations that sponsor terrorism.
Due to his animosity towards the tiny Jewish state and his repeated embrace of genocidal islamic jihadi groups, Jewish voters are starting to realize that Obama is not a friend to the Jews and they are starting to withdraw their support. Jim Hoft at The Gateway Pundit reports that:
Anti-Israel Obama Loses Jews… 80% of US Jews Oppose His Proposal to Turn Holy Land Over to Radical IslamistsObama may hate Israel and the Jewish people but he needs American Jewish votes to help him get re-elected, so his campaign is actively seeking traitorous Jews who will do his bidding and propagandize for him by painting a smiley face over his rabid anti-Semitism. via Atlas Shrugs:
In May Barack Obama urged Israel to hand over half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, and the tomb of Jesus Christ to the Hamas-Fatah terrorist alliance.
Apparently, American Jews finally caught on that Obama does not have Israel’s best interests at heart.
Today Dick Morris reported on a new poll that shows American Jews are turning against Obama in record numbers. According to Morris 80% of Jewish American voters oppose his insane proposal to hand Holy Land over to Hamas-Fatah alliance. Morris also reported that Obama, who carried Jews by 78% of the vote in 2008, would find his vote share diminished to only 56% today. (Video at the link)
Like a pig sniffing for truffles, the Obama regime is sniffing around for influential kapos willing to sell out the Jewish people. In exchange for doing the bidding of the most anti-Israel president in the history of the United States, these suckers hope to gain what, exactly?Apparently the Obama campaign has realized that declaring Israel a state sponsor of terror was not going over well with Jewish campaign donors, so it has just been announced that Israel will be taken off of the list and that it was a "mistake" to put it there. Via Atlas Shrugs:
In what sounds morbidly similar to Germany's judenraet, Obama seeks to establish Jewish council leaders -- volunteers to ensure that Obama's anti-Israel policies are propagandized, packaged, sold to uninformed Jews. Support will be implemented.
Jewish council chairmen had to decide whether to comply or refuse to comply with German demands to, for example, list names of Jews for deportation. In Lvov, Joseph Parnes refused to hand over Jews for deportation to the Janowska forced-labor camp and was killed by the Nazis for his refusal. In Warsaw, rather than aid in the roundup of Jews, Jewish council chairman Adam Czerniakow committed suicide on July 22, 1942, the day deportations began.There is no gun to Alan Solow's head, so what's his excuse?
Obama campaign to go on the offensive against conservative critics of Israel stance Washington Post
Obama’s top presidential campaign advisers are putting together a plan to go on the offensive against critics of his stance on Israel, I’m told, and are assembling a team of high profile surrogates who are well respected in the Jewish community to battle criticism in the media and ensure that it doesn’t go unanswered.
Obama’s supporters say the plan is in effect an acknowledgment that conservative attacks on Obama’s Israel stance have made defections among Jewish voters and donors a possibility they must take seriously. Obama’s advisers see a need to push back even harder on the attacks than they did in 2008, in part because Obama now has a record on the issue to defend — a record that even Obama’s supporters concede has not been adequately explained.
A group of well-known figures in the Jewish community has been in discussions with senior Obama adviser David Axelrod about how to respond to the criticism, which is expected to intensify as the campaign heats up. Among them: Alan Solow, the former head of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations; former Congressmen Mel Levine and Robert Wexler; and executive Penny Pritzker.
“We will have highly credible spokespeople and surrogates speak out in a general manner in support of what this administration has done, and articulate it in a way that we think will resonate with voters who care about this issue,” Solow said in an interview. “We will meet with supporters who have expressed concerns or want to be briefed on these issues on a one-on-one basis.”
“We got close to 80 percent of the vote among Jewish Americans in 2008, but we had to aggressively bat down efforts to divide the community and to inflame,” David Axelrod told me. “Plainly we have to be at least as assiduous about it this time. If we’re passive in response it would be a mistake.” MORE HERE
Last week I reported here at Atlas that the Obama regime had placed Israel on the list of countries that support terrorism -- while removing North Korea.
Lots of people doubted the story, saying that even O, for all his disdain for Israel, wouldn't go that far. Well, now the Administration has admitted it, and they're backpedaling furiously, saying it was all a "mistake."
Why is it that this Administration's "mistakes" always go in one direction? Obama has never made the "mistake" that goes against the Islamic world and favors Israel or any other free nation. And this "mistake" just happens to coincide with all his bullying and demonizing of Israel that has been consistent throughout his disastrous presidency.
Read about just how deep and extensive are his ties to Jew-haters and Islamic supremacists in my book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War On America.
U.S. says Israel’s inclusion on terrorist watch list was a mistake JTA July 6
WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Israel was included erroneously on a U.S. Department of Homeland Security terrorist watch list, a U.S. official said.John Morton, the director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement division of the department, said Israel's recent appearance on a list compiled by the department's office of the inspector general was a mistake.

Obama has publicly stated that Americans "do not consider ourselves a Christian nation" and that the United States is "one of the largest muslim countries in the world". Of course he is wrong, the US is not a muslim country, but do these statements reflect wishful thinking on his part, or do they reveal his intentions to islamicize America as described in THIS article by Victor Mordechai in Israel Today? Is Obama's deliberate undermining of American and Israeli interests his "Final Solution", as described in THIS article by James Lewis?

Why are Obama and Holder granting Islamic terrorists all the rights of an American citizen?

NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Somali man suspected of assisting al Qaeda was held abroad on a U.S. Navy ship for questioning for over two months without being advised of any legal rights, an administration official said.The man, identified as Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame, was brought to New York City on July 4 to face charges in a U.S. criminal court.He appeared in a New York court on Tuesday morning and pleaded not guilty to providing material support to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and the Somali group Al Shabaab, prosecutors in Manhattan said on Tuesday.Warsame was arrested in April by the U.S. military in the Gulf, he was questioned about anti-terrorism “for intelligence purposes for more than two months” before being read his Miranda rights, the prosecutors said in a statement.Miranda rights entitle suspects to a lawyer and the right to remain silent.He was questioned by interrogators from the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group and the U.S. military, according to an administration official.via Obama plays hide the Somali – Washington Times.

MUST READ! Obama Doctrine: Embolden our Enemies and Undermine our Allies by Frank Gaffney (excerpts):
America arguably has no more mortal enemy than the Muslim Brotherhood (MB or Ikhwan in Arabic). The MB's own documents - including a number of those introduced into evidence by the Justice Department in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history, the Holy Land Foundation prosecution - make clear that this international Islamist organization seeks to impose its politico-military-legal doctrine of shariah on our country.
One such document describes a "phased plan" that calls for the Ikhwan assiduously and stealthily to pursue precisely this objective. Ultimately, the plan calls for the use of violence to take over our government, clearing the way for the triumph of Islam worldwide and the reestablishment of a global ruler, the Caliph, who will govern in accordance with shariah.
Sounds crazy, right? Or at least unachievable? It does - at least until you realize that the message being sent by the Obama administration is that, despite such ambitions, we are prepared to legitimate and deal with the Muslim Brothers who are animated by them.
Well, perhaps you say, just because we are recognizing that the Muslim Brotherhood is likely to be a big player (read, the winner) in the elections currently scheduled for later this year in Egypt does not mean we are going to facilitate their aspirations in this country. Unfortunately, that is exactly what it means.
By engaging the Ikhwan in its native land, the Obama administration is effectively eliminating any lingering impediment to the operations of its myriad front groups in this country. Even before Secretary Clinton's announcement, many of them have already been accorded unprecedented access to and influence in the U.S. government. In fact, it stands to reason that one of the factors prompting Team Obama to embrace the Muslim Brotherhood is the success of such influence operations within the United States.
In addition to emboldening our enemies by reinforcing their conviction that we are in decline, the Obama administration's MB initiative undermines our friends. That is most obviously the case with respect to Israel, a nation already reeling from the President's serial, gratuitous acts of enmity towards the Jewish State. Now, his embrace of the Ikhwan can only exacerbate the worsening strategic environment the Israelis have faced in the months since the United States pulled the plug on Mubarak.
For example, Israel has been seriously buffeted by actions taken to date by an Egyptian military clearly under the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood. These include steps taken to: restore relations with Hamas and Iran; broker the Palestinians' so-called "unity government; open the Raffa crossing into Gaza; afford a hero's welcome in Tahrir Square to one of the world's most virulent Islamist ideologues, Sheikh Yusef al-Qaradawi; and threaten to dispense with the peace treaty with Israel.
It is hard to characterize all this as other than a further diminishing of America as a beacon of liberty and reliable friend to those who cherish freedom, or aspire to obtain it. If we are unable to counter even those who are explicitly hostile to our survival as a nation, we encourage the perception that this country is reduced to appeasing its enemies and selling out our friends. We will have many more of the former and far fewer of the latter.
A further impetus to the perception of a diminished America may come this week after Atlantis performs the planned final flight of a U.S. space shuttle. President Obama declined to keep the shuttles going, canceled the planned replacement platform for manned space flight and thereby condemned this country for the foreseeable future to reliance on Russian and perhaps, in due course, Chinese rockets to deliver our astronauts to the space station.
Lest we forget, this momentous dismantling of America's place as the world's preeminent space power fits the Obama Doctrine in one other way: It was just a year ago that the then-newly appointed NASA Administrator, Charles Bolden, recounted how President Obama had apprized him of his priority mission: "Perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science...and math and engineering."
