Just a few words regarding the newly emerging chaos that is once again engulfing Egypt…
Soon after entering the White House as Barack Obama’s “senior adviser” Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett began meeting with top members of the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Islamic group that has for decades integrated itself with various political groups throughout the world. With Barack Obama as president, and Valerie Jarrett’s influence on nearly all aspects of presidential policy, it appeared the Muslim Brotherhood had finally found its way into the White House as well.
It is no mere coincidence then that within months of meeting with various White House officials, including most notably Valerie Jarrett, that the Muslim Brotherhood began to orchestrate protests in Egypt, for decades ruled by Hosni Mubarak, a relative political moderate who had proven invaluable to the cause of Middle East peace – namely between itself and bordering nations and Israel. Mubarak had long battled against the radicalism of the Muslim Brotherhood inside Egypt, and had been successful in keeping the group on the fringe of political influence. That success fell apart as the influence and support of the Obama White House elevated the Muslim Brotherhood inside of Egypt, resulting in Mubarak’s end in power, and an election that saw longtime Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamed Mursi assume the position of president.
Mursi has a long and well documented history of calling for the destruction of Israel, and the re-emergence of “true” Islam throughout the world. This past appears to have made him that much more acceptable to those inside the Obama White House. Barack Obama personally congratulated Mursi following his election victory in Egypt - and Mursi most recently congratulated Obama on his own re-election victory in the United States.
Now this same Mohamed Mursi is moving quickly to further consolidate his power, as a growing number of Egyptians fear his desire to form a Muslim Brotherhood dictatorship that will then assume even greater influence in the region, possibly working in conjunction with the Islamic radicals that have long ruled over Iran – radicals that, like Mursi, have called for the eradication of Israel.
It now appears clear that once Barack Obama won re-election, Mursi and his Muslim Brotherhood knew that a friend to their cause would remain in the White House for another four years – thus giving him the confidence to attempt his now ongoing power grab from inside Egypt.
I cannot help but see the image of Valerie Jarrett sitting inside of her second story West Wing office, just down the hall from Barack Obama’s own often used private study, nodding her head in agreement and mouthing the words, “All according to plan” .
Elections have consequences…
