Muslim Brotherhood: ‘Prepare Egyptians for war with Israel'

A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt told the Arabic-language Iranian news network Al-Alam on Monday that he would like to see the Egyptian people prepare for war against Israel, according to the Hebrew-language business newspaper Calcalist.

Muhammad Ghannem reportedly told Al- Alam that the Suez Canal should be closed immediately, and that the flow of gas from Egypt to Israel should cease “in order to bring about the downfall of the Mubarak regime.” He added that “the people should be prepared for war against Israel,” saying the world should understand that “the Egyptian people are prepared for anything to get rid of this regime.”

Ghannem praised Egyptian soldiers deployed by President Hosni Mubarak to Egyptian cities, saying they “would not kill their brothers.” He added that Washington was forced to abandon plans to help Mubarak stay in power after “seeing millions head for the streets.”

They did OK until they went outside their air defense envelope. They're better equipped and trained now, also. The real problem will be if Jordan and Syria also go the way of the MB.

Syria is already part of the axis of evil. Iran and Syria are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood (they have provided them with safe havens when the Egyptians were hunting them down), training, funding and weapons). Those regimes will remain in power and ally with the radicals coming to the fore in Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, and Lebanon. Expect the Saudis to start packing their bags and preparing for prolonged European vacations.

The one good thing that will come of this is that the various Arab/Muslim leaders that come out of this will be no more likely to get along than previous ones. The Sunni/Shia split will be repeated between Sunni factions who will demand to be anointed as the leaders of the neo-Caliphate. Our best hope is that they fight with each other first, so that we can take them apart after they've weakened themselves.

I have no confidence in Hillary and Obama handling a crisis like this. They will only try to exploit it for their own means, not try to head off a disaster. No wonder all this is happening on Obama's watch. He's perceived as a weakling who cannot begin to handle this. He will not back long time supporters of the US in the region. No one can trust him, either abroad or domestically.

The trick, and IMO a long shot, will be for the Egyptians to install a new governemnt that will remain friendly to the US and maintain the peace agreement with Israel. On the plus side, the Brotherhood only has about 20% support in polls according to reports. On the negative side, the Brotherhood has 20% of support in polls. If they choose to resort to violence in order to gain control, which way will the Army go? That's the question, IMO.

When Obama spoke at the Cairo University, he did tell those folks he was one of them!

Obama caused this crisis by inflating the dollar. The protests started as food riots, which were exacerbated by high prices caused by inflation (the dollar is the reserve currency that commodities are traded in) and by pushing for alternative fuels, which means burning ethanol, which accounts for about 1/6 of all corn grown in the world (the US grows about half of the corn grown globally, and diverts about 1/3 of the crop into ethanol). These two factors have resulted in rising food prices, which have hit the third world particularly hard.

His waffling on Mubarak didn't help matters. In fact, he has followed the Jimmy Carter playbook on this crisis, and we will be very lucky if we don't see the Muslim Brotherhood take over.

Wee Wee needs to read this article. According to Wee Wee the Muslim Brotherhood has nothing to do with the uprising in Egypt.

It must be true...none of the interviews she's heard with protestors in Cairo on al-Jazeera have mentioned them.

In addition, we also heavily subsidize our food industry. As a result, the government ends up hurting these people because the price is artificially lowered and we end up producing too much food.

None of the middle east cesspool governments are particularly friendly to the US. They are friendly to the money we send them and the military support our tax dollars pay for.

We are no better off than Jefferson was in the Barbary Cost wars of over 2 centuries ago. We are still paying a tribute to the 7th century cave dwellers for the privilege of having them play nice with us.

Except instead of calling it what it really is, a ransom or tribute, to the rag heads, we call it foreign aid and vital to our national security.

Machiavelli said that, if you have to choose between the two, it is better to be feared than loved. We are neither.

I think our potential is feared, that's why the Iranians released the hostages before Reagan came into office. That's why they don't fear us now, another wimp is in office. But, if the proper statesman is in office, the fear will return. Our military might is awesome, they just know Obama has it chained up.

With California billions in debt, I say we make Israel an offer to buy California and leave the middle earth to the Orks.
At that point we can just get the hell out of there and let them all kill each other off.
They are going to sooner or later anyway, this approach just reduces the collateral damage the the US will suffer.

So, instead of a couple of million restive Palestinians, they'll have to deal with 4-6 million restive Mexicans? Good luck selling them that.
