Obama Open To A Role For Islamists (Muslim Brotherhood) In New Egypt Government

U.S. open to a role for Islamists in new Egypt government


The Obama administration said for the first time that it supports a role for groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Islamist organization, in a reformed Egyptian government.

The organization must reject violence and recognize democratic goals if the U.S. is to be comfortable with it taking part in the government, the White House said. But by even setting conditions for the involvement of such nonsecular groups, the administration took a surprise step in the midst of the crisis that has enveloped Egypt for the last week.

The statement was an acknowledgment that any popularly accepted new government will probably include groups that are not considered friendly to U.S. interests, and was a signal that the White House is prepared for that probability after 30 years of reliable relations with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Monday’s statement was a “pretty clear sign that the U.S. isn’t going to advocate a narrow form of pluralism, but a broad one,” said Robert Malley, a Mideast peace negotiator in the Clinton administration.

Muslim Brotherhood PM invited by Obama to attend speech in Cairo

The International Middle East Media Center was the only one to report on the invitation, but it was more of an aside to the main thrust of its article, which dealt with al-Qaeda leader Al-Zawahiri. However, this is an instance when the ‘by the way’ part of a report is more important than the lead story.

The Muslim Brotherhood has been a thorn in President Mubarak's side for many decades. Many of its members, at one time or another have been jailed.

This is an audacious move on the part of Obama, which managed to irritate the Egyptian leadership who say that the Brotherhood is 'illegal'. Obama is not concerned about ruffling Mubarak's feathers.

Here we go... the real Obama. Obama working for Islam and against the U.S. and our allies.

If this happens, it will make it so that obama can then funnel American tax payer money directly to his homies. I hate obama.

I want O'Quamba in the cargo hold of a tramp freighter bound for africa where he will be dumped in the bay of some 4th world nation never to be seen or heard from again. Q'Quamba is a turd.
