Hillary Clinton in Tunisia; a bit nervous about Arab Spring?

When it comes to the Obama administration, no one has supported the Arab Spring more than Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. As mentioned in our previous post, Huma Abedin is a woman whose familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are beyond extensive; they should have precluded her from acquiring even a modicum of access to the halls of power. That she is Hillary’s closest aide – despite her ties to the Brotherhood being revealed – goes a long way in explaining why the Obama administration in general and Hillary in particular, supports the Brotherhood-backed Arab Spring.

However, while in Tunisia recently, Hillary expressed some concern that the reforms promised by these uprisings are not taking place.

Via the AP:

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday warned of backsliding in the democratic transformations under way in the Mideast and North Africa, and appealed for countries in the region to fulfill the promise of reform offered by the Arab Spring.

In Tunisia, the catalyst for the tumult that engulfed the region last year, Clinton said the continued embrace of reforms would serve as a powerful example elsewhere. Her comments came amid concerns that transitions in Egypt and elsewhere are faltering and at risk of being hijacked by extremists.

Clinton called on Tunisians, particularly the young, to demand that their new leaders stay on the path of liberalization and openness.

Backsliding? Really? Are we supposed to believe that Hillary Clinton is this ignorant of the Muslim Brotherhood’s strength and its goals? If she is, it would serve as a glowing example of how effective Muruna is. As we wrote here, Muruna is a practice endorsed by Muslim Brotherhood leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi that allows practicing Muslims to ignore all of their religion’s prohibitions in the name of a higher calling. For example, Huma Abedin’s marriage to a Jew (Anthony Weiner) should leave her, at a minimum, ostracized by her family (her mother, Saleha, is a Muslim Brotherhood member). Yet, she continued a relationship with her mother AFTER marrying Weiner.

Clinton then spoke in Algeria:

Later, in Algeria, she carried the same message: “The people of the Maghreb are as talented, creative and hard-working as people anywhere in the world. They need and deserve the opportunity to make decisions on behalf of themselves because that is good for the dignity and rights of every individual and it is good for every society.”

She spoke of the need for an accountable and effective government, a dynamic private sector and a vibrant civil society.

The Maghreb countries are Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania, and Morocco, Clinton’s final stop before returning to Washington on Sunday.

Each and every one of those countries has either fallen or is in the process of falling to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Hillary’s pleas are in vain. In fact, the Brotherhood probably laughed at her during her trip back to Washington.

The Arab Spring has become the disaster clear-thinking westerners knew it would be.
