Re: The Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian Crisis
Ironically, in the last five years, prominent voices in the West have considered opening a political dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood. For example, Dr. Robert S. Leiken and Steven Brooke published an article in the March-April 2007 issue of Foreign Affairs called "The Moderate Muslim Brotherhood" in which they advised the Bush administration to enter into a strategic alliance with the organization, which they referred to as "moderate," calling it a "notable opportunity" to use the Brotherhood to promote American interests.
Foreign Affairs is the periodical published by the CFR.
At the same time, some U.S. officials and dignitaries seemed to have softened their approach to the Muslim Brotherhood. In 2005, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice pressed President Mubarak to open up participation in the Egyptian parliamentary elections, resulting in a major increase of elected Muslim Brotherhood members from 15 to 88. Subsequently, Mubarak became more reluctant to take U.S. advice.
The CFR has controlled our State Dept. for a long time.
I hate to say it, but considering the Telegraph.co.uk article about our government's collaboration with the Egyptian rebels, I'm starting to believe that the Globalists' objective is to strengthen/empower the Jihadists.
It reminds me of how our government spent 40 years "fighting the Cold War" with one hand, while propping up the Soviet Union with the other hand. Something stinks.
