Sunday News And Analysis:

Sunday is always a good day for analysis of current events and today is no exception. 

Egypt braced for further unrest on Sunday after the Muslim Brotherhoodcalled for fresh marches in Cairo and the military-backed government signalled a continuing crackdown and a defiant campaign to rebuff mounting international criticism of the killing of hundreds of Islamists over the last week.
Armoured vehicles were deployed around the presidential palace and constitutional court after the Brotherhood said its protests against the overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi would go on despite the bloodshed.
The EU said it would urgently review relations with Egypt, and William Hague condemned the "disproportionate use of force by the security forces or violent actions by some demonstrators".
Hours after Egyptian security forces cleared Brotherhood protesters out of a mosque in central Cairo, state media was pumping out attacks on what it called "terrorists", accusing them of having desecrated a holy place by firing from the minaret at troops and police in the street below.
Ikhwanweb, a Brotherhood website, reported the mosque's imam as confirming that only the security forces had access to the minaret, implying a staged provocation. No casualties were reported, but 385 people, including three Iranians, a Turk and a Syrian were detained, according to state TV, to the cheers of loyalist crowds in the street outside.
Claims and counterclaims are being made in a highly polarised atmosphere in which truth and propaganda are extremely hard to disentangle. Reporters who were in the mosque near Ramses Square did not see any weapons.
As the cabinet met to consider an outright ban on the Islamist movement, the foreign minister, Nabil Fahmy, warned against the internationalisation of the crisis and suggested that Egypt was not worried about threats to cut financial aid.

A day after Egyptian forces dramatically stormed a Cairo mosque where supporters of Mohammed Morsi were holed up, Arabic media reports on the government’s plan to outlaw the ousted president’s Muslim Brotherhood movement.

“Egypt: Tense calm and intention to disband the Brotherhood,” reads the headline of London-based pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat, featuring a photo of a woman raising her arms as she exits the Al-Fath mosque on Saturday.

“The Brotherhood’s use of violence on the streets has eliminated the chance of incorporating the Brotherhood in the political process,” continues the article, quoting provisional prime minister Hazem Beblawi as saying that there can be no reconciliation with those “who sullied their hands with blood, and who raised weapons in the face of the state.”

“By protesting through terrorism, they have doomed not only all prospects of joining the political process, but of being accepted by society once again. They have committed collective suicide through the criminal activities perpetrated by some of its supporters.”

Like all terrorist organizations, the Muslim Brotherhood has only one commodity to trade in. Blood. In the war of ideas for the future of Egypt, the Brotherhood had nothing to offer but the blood of its followers and victims. It has no new ideas. It has no record of accomplishments. It has no vision for the future except the same old corruption and authoritarianism cloaked in a deceptive Islamist garb.

The outcome of any interaction with the Brotherhood could have been predicted from its motto; “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.”

In the streets of Egyptian cities, Muslim Brotherhood activists achieved their highest hope. They died in their Jihad against the liberal opposition and the military, fighting against human rights for women and Christians, against multi-party rule, freedom of speech, museums, libraries and the future in the way that the armies of Allah have died for over a thousand years. Some died trying to kill Egyptian soldiers and police officers. Others were killed by their own people in order to maximize the death toll and spread shock and horror through the international community.

Like their Hamas outlet in Gaza, like their Syrian brigades who have wrecked entirecities and filled them with corpses, and like Al Qaeda, whose leaders have always been Muslim Brotherhood members; the Brotherhood does not care whose blood it spills.

When your highest hope is dying for Allah, then everything else is a detail. The Muslim Brotherhood’s leaders, men like Morsi and Khairat el-Shater, are far less eager to die for Allah. Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Brotherhood’s mad genocidal preacher, is still hiding out in Qatar and spewing calls for violence from under the skirts of the equally cowardly Qatari Emir, who finances the Brotherhood’s wave of death and terror in the region while living it up in his palaces and hoping that Morsi climbs back into power and signs another favorable natural gas import deal with Qatar so he can add on a few more palaces.

What it bought with their blood is the outrage of the world. Terrorist organizations are one-trick ponies. They unleash horrifying violence, blame it on the brutality of the authorities and wait for the world to step in and apply pressure on whatever government they are trying to overthrow.

What any normal person would consider a massacre; the Muslim Brotherhood considers an opportunity. Its tactic, like those of most terrorist groups, is to commit atrocities that bait the authorities into a seeming overreaction and then to use that to attract international attention and play the victim.

The Muslim Brotherhood used the blood of its followers as currency to buy international outrage that will be used to pressure Egypt into releasing Brotherhood leaders like Morsi and and Khairat el-Shater . It wanted the clashes to be as ugly and bloody as possible. It wanted to outrage the world because it knew that was the speediest way of getting its leaders out of their prison cells and back into power.

These murderous tactics would be useless if the United States and Europe weren’t full of useful idiots and fellow travelers, in and out of the media, gasping at the carnage and demanding an immediate halt to the violence. There is only one way to halt the violence and that is to crush the Muslim Brotherhood.

Egyptian authorities rounded up more than 1,000 Islamists and began considering legally dissolving the Muslim Brotherhood as the party defiantly called for a week of nationwide protests starting on Saturday. Among those arrested was the brother of al-Qaida head Ayman al-Zawahiri.

The move came after Friday's death toll in protests added another 173 people killed to the more than 600 slain earlier in the week. More than 1,300 have been wounded in clashes around the country with almost half of the injured from central Cairo violence alone.

Egyptian Prime Minister Hazem el-Bablawi proposed Saturday the legal dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood and the idea is being studied by the government, a spokesman for the government said. The proposal was made to Egypt's ministry of social affairs, which licenses non-governmental organizations, spokesman Sherif Shawky said.

And once again, we see the U.S. supporting radical Islamic elements in the Middle East. This is beyond surreal:

Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, was in Amman this week to inaugurate the Centcom’s Forward Command in Jordan manned by 273 US officers. US media correspondents were permitted to visit the new war room for the first time on condition of non-disclosure of its location and secret facilities. 

The US Air Force command section is in direct communication with the US, Israeli, Jordanian and Saudi Air Force headquarters ready for an order by President Barack Obama to impose a partial no-fly zone over Syrian air space.

Obama’s final decision on US military intervention – consisting of a no fly and a buffer zone in Syria – is expected in the coming two to three weeks, depending on Dempsey’s recommendations upon his return to Washington after checking out preparations in Israel and Jordan. In neither operation will US boots touch Syrian soil.

The buffer zone in the south up to Damascus would be captured by 3,000 rebels trained in special operations tactics and armed by US forces in Jordan. Jordanian special forces are to spearhead the operation under US command.

Assad may take the fight outside his borders by launching missiles against Israel, Jordan and maybe Turkey.

Hizballah may join in with rocket attacks on Israel. Iran will beef up its active military presence in Syria and Jordan. And Russian Rapid Intervention units are on standby for saving Assad at their Black Sea and South Caucasian bases

One of the more ominous developments as relating to the Muslim Brotherhood can be seen below:

A secret document by the American branch of the Muslim Brotherhood from 1991 states that its "work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within." The Brotherhood's documents also identify many of its fronts in the U.S., such as the Islamic Society of North America, theIslamic Circle of North America, the North American Islamic Trust, the Muslim Students Association, the International Institute of Islamic Thought and the Islamic Association for Palestine, from which the Council on American-Islamic Relations was birthed.
Overseas, the Muslim Brotherhood strategy of "civilization jihad" is referred to as "gradualism," a doctrine I discussed at length here."Gradualism," often called "stealth jihad" in the West, refers to an incremental, phased approach towards advancing the Islamist cause that includes a cost-benefit analysis. Western observers often misinterpret the Muslim Brotherhood's restraint as proof that it is moderate. In reality, this judgment is an intelligence failure. Israeli officials say the Muslim Brotherhood leadership in Egypt ordered Hamas to fire rockets at Israel just this past weekend. Hamas' founding charter says it is a wing of the Brotherhood and the terrorist group changed its official name in December to reflect this.
There is a wealth of information showing why the investigations called for by the members of Congress is necessary. The impact of the Muslim Brotherhood-tied groups and other Islamists on the current and past administrations, both political parties and the law enforcement and intelligence communities is disturbing. Their agendas are aided by a media eager to defame their critics and businesses, officials and religious organizations embracing them in the name of interfaith relations.
The Center for Security Policy's course calls out several serving members of the current administration for having close ties to Muslim Brotherhood affiliates. These include:

 These include:
  • Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State HillaryClinton and wife of former Rep. AnthonSec. of State Clinton with Huma Abediny Weiner (D-NY). Several of her relatives have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, especially her mother who belongs to the Muslim Sisterhood. Huma herself was an assistant editor of the Institute’s journal as far back as 1996 and as recently as 2008, which means she was there when it published her mother’s extremist book.
  • Rashad Hussain, the current Special Envoy to the Rashad HussainOrganization of Islamic Cooperation. He previously was a Deputy Associate Council in the White House involved in national security policy and Muslim outreach.
  • Dalia Mogahed, a close associate ofJohn Esposito, one of the foremost defenders of the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates. She is in the White House's Office of Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships and is credited as the person whomost influenced President Obama's 2009 speech in Cairo. She is a member of the Department of Homeland Security's Countering Violent Extremism Working Group.
  • Mohamed Elibiary, who serves on the Homeland Security Advisory Dalia MogahedCommittee and reportedlytried to leak documents to the press to paint Texas Governor Rick Perry as having an anti-Muslim bias. He is a member of the Department of Homeland Security's Countering Violent Extremism Working Group.
  • Imam Mohamed Magid, President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), who has close ties with administration officials and is a member of the Department of Homeland Security's Countering Violent Extremism Working Group.
These individuals represent the tip of the iceberg – there are many, many more in high influential places in the American government.
Moreover, these individuals and organizations are responsible for the administration's belief that the Muslim Brotherhood is genuinely moderate, non-violent and a force we can work with. This opinion was on full display when Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified before Congress that the Muslim Brotherhood is "secular." He portrayed the Brotherhood in a positive light and continues to do so to this day. A National Security Council spokesperson did the same when asked about the White House's meetings with Brotherhood officials from Egypt. The director of the State Department's Special Coordinator of the Office of Middle East Transitions, William Taylor, is similarly positivetowards the Brotherhood. His office even gave election training to Islamists in Egypt.
[ad] The five members of Congress who wrote these letters are going to be vilified, cast as "Islamophobes" buying into a wild conspiracy theory. The Islamists' allies in the media and government will repeat their talking points, ever so eager to pride themselves as the defenders of an attacked minority. I personally experienced this when I tried to speak out at a planning board hearing about a pro-Hamas imam in my area and a local reporter said I wanted to "make comments about Muslims" even though she had no way of knowing what my intention was because I wasn't permitted to speak and she never talked to me before writing her report.
These investigations must happen. The information in this article and in the "Muslim Brotherhood in America" course only comes from publicly-available information. What is happening behind closed doors in a comforting atmosphere of secrecy?

Hey sorry for beinf inactive for the last few weeks. Been in Ajijic Mexico for a mission trip. It was amazing. Developed relationships with people, saw God in so many ways. Even with all the evil in the world, the light still has a way of working in the little things and reaching people in remote and hopeless places. So be encouraged.

This is my Father's world, oh let me ne'er forget that though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the greater yet.

Hi Dylan,
What a perfect song for what is going on in the world today.Thank you for that.

Dylan said...

Hearing the stories of some of the people I've met in these last few weeks, the song is such a testament to the reality of world events as well as lives of individuals around the world.

Egypt is an example of how democracy does not work within a life long dictator ran government. Genocide is the equal and opposite reaction. The U.S. will end up facing a no fly zone there as well as possibly being blocked at the Suez canal. At some point the insurmountable pressure cooker in the middle east is going to explode.

The number 13 cannot BE UNDERESTIMATED in giving
clues to the timing of the end...

why ??

3 13 13, FP gets into power.
9 13 93, Oslo agreement signed
sealed and DELV.

9 13 13

EXACTLY 6 MONTHS from 3 13 13
and EXACTLY 20 years from
Oslo... 9 13 1993

see the pattern ??

yeah, i could be wrong...


(1) why no rapture yet ??

(2) why no stock crash yet ??

(3) why no 17 Isaiah and 38 Ezekiel yet ??

it may BE that Obama is holding
Netanyahu OFF until a peace deal
is IN THE BAG so to speak...from attacking Iran....

see this from Big Pond News >>>>

This evening the sides will try to complete discussion on the framework of the negotiations in order to start dealing with the core issues at the next meeting, which will take place in Jericho within the next two weeks,' privately-owned Channel 10 television reported.

14 AUG 2013.....

it would be very HARD to sign off
on a peace deal with hostilities
breaking out...

think about this.

NO WONDER THE M E is so quiet now.

don't worry, 13 SEP is only a few
weeks away.

Mamas & The Papas Go Where You Wanna Go Lyrics >>>>

Songwriters: PHILLIPS, JOHN EDMUND ANDREW You gotta go where you wanna go
Do what you wanna do
With whoever you wanna do it with

You gotta go where you wanna go
Do what you wanna do
With whoever you wanna do it with

You don't understand
That a girl like me can love just one man
Three thousand miles, that's how far you'll go
And you said to me "Please don't follow"

'cause you gotta go where you wanna go
Do what you wanna do
With whoever you wanna do it with

You gotta go where you wanna go
Do what you wanna do
With whoever you wanna do it with

You don't understand
That a girl like me can love just one man
You've been gone a week, and I tried so hard
Not to be the cryin' kind
Not to be the girl you left behind

You gotta go where you wanna go
Do what you wanna do
With whoever you wanna do it with

You gotta go where you wanna go
Do what you wanna do
With whoever you wanna do it with

You gotta go where you wanna go
Do what you wanna do
With whoever you wanna do it with
