When it comes to Great Britain’s Islamic problem, the path of least resistance has been the path of choice for years. After announcing that the MI5 and MI6 would be launching an investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood, Prime Minister David Cameron now has a bigger problem on his hands than if he’d have confronted a much smaller problem years ago.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader in the UK has issued a threat similar to that used by hostage takers if Cameron does what should have been done long ago. When asked to clarify a thinly veiled but obvious threat, the UK’s Muslim Brotherhood leader – Ibrahim Mounir – said “any possibility” existed when it came to retaliation by his followers.
Translation: Do what we say and no one gets hurt.
As Shoebat.com has documented, Cameron wouldn’t be in this pickle if he’d have dealt with the problem earlier. When the ‘Arab Spring’ was unfolding in 2011, Cameron supported it. When the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi was elected president of Egypt, Cameron supported him. When Mursi was overthrown, and Muslim Brotherhood members fled to Great Britain, Cameron’s government welcomed them with open arms. When the UK welcomed the Brotherhood with open arms, highly divisive grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood’s founder became an advisor in the government’s Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO).
Today, Cameron has a greater Muslim Brotherhood threat on his own shores while Saudi Arabia and Egypt are warning him that he’s got a terrorist organization problem he could have nipped in the bud a long time ago.
If Cameron were smart, he’d go public with who the Muslim Brotherhood is and throw Ibrahim Mounir in jail. Otherwise, it’s going to continue becoming more and more difficult for him to acknowledge and confront a threat he owes it to his country to deal with.
