The recent comments by homosexual journalist Glenn Greenwald, who became infamous when he published Edward Snowden’s NSA files, provide another in a long line of examples which show that his sympathies lie with the Muslim Brotherhood. During a television interview, Greenwald was in ‘blame America first’ mode and whipped out the tired argument that the reason terrorists attack innocent civilians in the U.S. is because the U.S. kills so many innocent Muslims (he obviously can’t explain why ISIS slaughters Muslims too). This is at the heart of every Sunni Muslim argument against the west.
It’s a red herring and it’s continually used because it appeals to that old white guilt. If you want proof, look at what the unmasked Salafis say. The most notorious Muslim scholar in the U.K. for example is Anjem Choudary. On one hand, he makes that same argument Greenwald does. On the other hand, he maintains that the goal of Islam is a global caliphate.
So which is it? The answer is that the goal is the latter and the means is, in part, the former. In making this argument, Greenwald is again shilling for the Brotherhood.
He then said something that shows exactly who he’s lining up with when it comes to the Middle East:
“You asked me, ‘How can you justify violence,’” Greenwald continued.“It is the United States that is doing more violence in the world than any other country. We’re bombing more countries, we’re invading and occupying them, we’re supporting countries like Israel and Saudi Arabia that bring enormous amounts of violence to the world, so I think if we’re going to ask, ‘How can you justify violence,’ we ought to begin with our own government and ask that question.”
There is certainly no love lost for Saudi Arabia at Shoebat.com. We have done extensive expose’s on what that country is up to; that’s not the point. Right now, Saudi Arabia is increasingly so alienated that it is actually seeking alliances with Israel and Egypt (as long as the anti-Muslim Brotherhood el-Sisi is in charge).
Saudi Arabia has been a chief exporter of Islamic terrorism; it has financed the Muslim Brotherhood all over the world. That does not mean it is allies with the Brotherhood; the Brotherhood despises the Saudis. For Greenwald to single out Israel and Saudi Arabia as the chief purveyors of violence in the world, he is siding with the Brotherhood.
Of course, Greenwald’s affinity for Brotherhood causes is nothing new. As IBD pointed out a few months ago, one of the consequences of the NSA leaks was revealing Muslim leaders in the west whom U.S. federal authorities were tracking:
By releasing the names of several Muslim terrorist targets under surveillance by the NSA and FBI in a new expose — “Under Surveillance: Meet the Muslim-American Leaders the FBI and NSA Have Been Spying On” — Snowden and his mouthpiece Greenwald have tipped off the enemy and jeopardized major counterterror investigations.
They make it seem as if the five American Muslim leaders they found listed in NSA and FBI surveillance records were victims of anti-Muslim prejudice, while glossing over the raft of counterterror evidence against them. In fact, the government has court-approved cause to spy on them.
As Shoebat.com has reported, Greenwald has earned thousands of dollars speaking at events sponsored by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
Perhaps his interview above should have begun with his issuing a full disclosure.
