Good Neighbor Policy

Kinda interesting if it's true. "The Egyptian opposition daily Al-Masryoon reported that high-level diplomatic sources said that Muslim Brotherhood General Guide Muhammad Mahdi 'Akef, several members of his office, and Muslim Brotherhood MPs had been invited by U.S. Democrat congressmen to visit the U.S. next month and to speak to Congress." (MEMRI Blog)

Nothing follows.

What if no-one CAIRS?
CAIREN Hughes is in no position to criticise, given her generous Whitehouse hospitality offeredd to those that enable terror.

Let's see here: Congress is planning to bypass foreign policy - nothing new - with regard to Egypt and thus jeopardise relations with Mubarak - who so happens to be one of the few Middle Eastern leaders not seeking direct confrontation and displaying belligerence towards Israel and the US.

What do the Democrats have to say to justify this? Do they suddenly believe in democracy again, while threatening to abandon Iraq altogether on another front? What they intend to achieve with engaging with the Brotherhood - the overthrow of Mubarak would precipitate an about-face in Egyptian foreign policy that would spell trouble for Israel as it did during Nasser's reign.

This is so replusively typical of the progressivists: always side with the underdog against the hegemon. Democrats are willing to support just about any entity if it means equality in power-sharing - never mind that it undermines national sovereignty, democracy and civilisation itself. They tend to miss the irony that the Brotherhood is an enormous entity that spans across Nations and borders - not exactly the underdog.

Or perhaps the fact that the Brotherhood is a transnational entity that they figured it would serve their progressivist ideals best.

If you moved two degrees of relationships from everybody who shared an Egyptian prison cell with Dr. Zawrahiri you would likey have 95% of the Who's Who of jihadism. The common thread is the Muslim Brotherhood - the ideological foundation of Al Qaeda - and still the leading phalanx of legal and illegal Muslim incursion into Western society.

That the Democrat Party would so eagerly legitimize and embrace the enemies of the USA means either that we are all screwed or that the Democrat Party will soon cease to exist as a national political force. It's one thing to talk down the USA for political gain but quite another to actually cuddle up with the enemy. Hopefully American voters will notice what's going on.
