the “T” party

The Obama administration chose the eve of the holiday marking our Nation’s birth to acknowledge publicly behavior in which it has long been stealthily engaged to the United States’ extreme detriment: Its officials now admit that they are embracing the Muslim Brotherhood (MB or Ikhwan in Arabic). That would be the same international Islamist organization that has the destruction of the United States … as its explicit objective.

Team Obama’s official, open legitimation of the Brotherhood marks a dramatic break from the U.S. government’s historical refusal to deal formally with the Ikhwan.

To understand why the Obama administration’s embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood is so ominous, consider three insights into the organization’s nature and ambitions:

First, here’s the MB’s creed: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” (Source: Husain Haqqani and Hillel Fradkin, “Islamist Parties: Going Back to the Origins.”)

Second, here’s the Ikwhan’s mission in America:

“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.” (Source: Muslim Brotherhood’s “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goals of the Group,” entered into evidence by the Department of Justice in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism-finance trial. Archived at the NEFA Foundation.)

Third, here are excerpts from the Muslim Brotherhood’s “phased plan” for accomplishing that mission:

Phase One: Discreet and secret establishment of leadership.

Phase Two: Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities. It greatly succeeded in implementing this stage. It also succeeded in achieving a great deal of its important goals, such as infiltrating various sectors of the Government.

Phase Three: Escalation phase, prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing mass media. Currently in progress.

Phase Four: Open public confrontation with the Government through exercising the political pressure approach. It is aggressively implementing the above-mentioned approach. Training on the use of weapons domestically and overseas in anticipation of zero-hour. It has noticeable activities in this regard.

Phase Five: Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation under which all parties and Islamic groups are united. (Source: Undated Muslim Brotherhood Paper entitled, “Phases of the World Underground Movement Plan.” Archived at Shariah: The Threat to America.) [more]

    Dearborn, Michigan school scores have dropped. “While statewide scores showed a slight jump, Dearborn’s proficiency as a district fell in all categories except writing.” Maybe that 5-times-a-day head-banging is taking an intellectual toll on yoots but they can still manage to skillfully write about it.

    If we don’t start a war, the only path we can take leads to slavery and death.

    Meanwhile, Friday sees the last-ever launch of a manned American spacecraft…and the very existence of NASA is in doubt because it’s in such disarray. Perhaps because Barack Hussein Obama “redefined” its main mission as Muslim outreach.

    Loading more rounds here, boss;
    Stashing more food, too….
    There are places, hidden and ready as easily fortified keeps.
    Coords at the ready to be whispered. (No!!! not in public!)

    Geocaching is no longer a game. It might mean the difference twixt living and dying.

    Dunno if we will make it to the election before our own Red Dawn rises and we are called to battle.

    Dammit…..I feel old.

    It can no longer be said that these dumbasses cannot read. Now it’s clearly intentional.

    I hate it when that happens. Trouble is, that sort of thing seems to be happening a lot nowadays.

    Claire makes a good point. The Gubbmint has had its turn in the barrel. They made a mighty fine start – back in the Old Days when engineers had crew-cuts and dark-rimmed glasses, and explorers were willing to go to the Moon in a tin can (though a wonderfully-engineered tin can) and hope like hell they were going to make it back.

    Now it’s up to guys like Elon Musk and the Rutans to carry on.

    I’m second to none in my appreciation of private enterprise – but will the gummint allow capitalists to boldly go where politicians no longer dream of going?

    If they want to shove a finger up your butt for having too big a bottle of shampoo at an airport, imagine what they’ll do to people who have their own rockets.

    A dialog with the MB isn’t necessarily bad provided the conversation goes something like this: “here are rules: number one, crawl back under your rock. Number two, mess with us and we will f*ck you up, build a pig farm on mecca, and piss on the blood stained earth where you fell.”

    The reason NASA failed is that they never sold any tickets for the best frikkin’ amusement park on (or off) the planet.

    Hey Doug, maybe NASA could raffel off some tickets for a ride in space. You know, 3$ per ticket and you get to take Joe #2 and Barack #1 with ya. Eat some space food thru a straw, float around the space station, take some really cool pictures and then send the two ass-holes out into oblivion.

    Or just let them re-enter the earths atmosphere without the help of NASA constructed vehicles. You know, heat shields, trajectories, landings, computers.

    I’m sure ACORN would have no problem figuring this stuff out.
