Political battle lines between the Egyptian government led by el-Sisi and the Barack Obama administration, which leads the U.S., have been drawn. A major salvo was fired on January 1st, when Egyptian president, Gen. Abdel Fatah el-Sisi admonished Islamic scholars at al-Azhar University. As Shoebat.com reported, this was a brazen statement against Barack Obama himself, who nearly six years earlier launched his pro-Muslim Brotherhood / pro-Arab Spring agenda in a speech at that very same university.
In many ways, what el-Sisi did to Obama from a podium at al-Azhar was the political equivalent of what he did by leading the overthrow of Mohammed Mursi in 2013. It was also a speech that created pro-Obama and pro-Sisi camps by providing a stark contrast to the Obama ideology that western leaders like Cameron of the UK, Hollande of France and Merkel of Germany have not.
Days later, on January 7th, it was events that provided even more contrast as Muslim terrorists in Paris murdered people in cold blood for their speech. Western leaders send muddled messages instead of clear ones. The best example can be seen in the much ballyhooed Paris march on January 11th that included Cameron, Hollande and Merkel showing solidarity with Mahmoud Abbas and Turkey’s Ahmet Davutoglu.
Normally reliable conservative Newt Gingrich attempted to put his finger on the problem by going after Obama for not attending the Paris rally. Gingrich concluded Obama is either cowardly or crazy. Neither is correct; Obama is pro-Muslim Brotherhood because his family is part of the organization and Egyptians are the only ones who have been so vocal about this; they also have the proof.
As Shoebat.com reported, western leaders were standing with terrorist-supporting leaders like Turkey’s Davutoglu. Conversely, when it comes to el-Sisi, the Egyptian leader is quite forcefully taking out terrorists. Many of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders who’ve escaped Egypt have found safe haven in Davutoglu’s Turkey.
The Obama administration has been playing nice with the el-Sisi regime for more than a year despite having significant problems with the Egyptian leader. This is reflected in the appointment of R. Stephen Beecroft as the U.S. Ambassador to Egypt; this was not Obama’s first choice. The man expected to replace the clearly Muslim Brotherhood-friendly Anne Patterson was Robert Ford, the former U.S. Ambassador to Syria.
As Shoebat.com has reported previously, Ford’s allegiances are disconcerting as he has supported Islamist rebels in Syria with clear allegiances to the Brotherhood. He clearly did not pass the smell test with the el-Sisi government and was rejected as a suitable ambassador not by Obama but by Egypt. Again, this was a clear rejection of the Muslim Brotherhood, not just the U.S. and again, muddled messages continue to be sent from American politicians in Congress who bizarrely support Syria’s rebels.
Last February, Reuters reported on some ‘inside baseball’ about why Ford is not now the U.S. Ambassador to Egypt:
Ford had been expected to become U.S. ambassador to Egypt, according to several sources, but Egyptian government officials had objected because they regarded him as too close to Islamist parties in the Middle East.
A former State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was his understanding that the Egyptian government had made clear it did not want Ford to go to Cairo to serve as U.S. ambassador.
Under diplomatic practice known as “agrement,” a country typically contacts another country before sending an ambassador to ensure the choice is acceptable. In this case, Ford’s candidacy did not even get that far, said the former U.S. official, who has spoken to Egyptian officials about the matter.
One week prior to that report by Reuters that Ford would be unacceptable, Shoebat.com first revealed the disturbing allegiances of Barack Obama’s brother Malik Obama. A photo from Malik’s own website showed him in Sana’a, Yemen wearing a Hamas scarf that called for the eradication of Israel. The point of bringing this up is not to show or claim any cause and effect relationship.
The point is to show the leverage against the Obama administration that el-Sisi has been amassing since Malik’s involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood was first revealed by Shoebat.com shortly after the IRS scandal broke. Again, however, U.S. politicians send muddled messages by not seizing upon the Malik Obama scandal while both houses of the U.S. Congress voted to back Muslim Brotherhood rebels in Syria.
After the overthrow of Mursi, the case of Malik Obama quickly caught the attention of the leaders in Egypt who filled the vacuum.
The first salvo fired against Obama came from the former Chancellor of the Constitutional Court of Egypt, Tahani el-Jebali in August of 2013, a highly respected and prominent voice. As Shoebat.com reported at the time, Jebali stated she would like…
“…to inform the American people that their president’s brother Obama is one of the architects of the major investments of the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
As Shoebat.com would later reveal, there was most definitely a money trail that included Malik’s dealings. More damaging was the fact that terrorist dealings didn’t just include Malik; they included other Obama family members as well.
“We will carry out the law and the Americans will not stop us. We need to open the files and begin court sessions. The Obama administration cannot stop us; they know that they supported terrorism. We will open the files so these nations are exposed, to show how they collaborated with them [the terrorists]. It is for this reason why the American administration fights us.”
Soon thereafter, a complaint was filed with the office of Egypt’s Prosecutor General, Hisham Barakat, as Shoebat.com reported. Complaint No. 1761 / 2013 actually made it onto Barakat’s radar, a very explosive development indeed. The complaint mentioned el-Jebali’s claims, which provided additional credibility.
In the many months that have transpired since, the case against Malik has only gotten stronger; much stronger. The repository of articles can be found here. The evidence in that case has no doubt been piling up in a drawer somewhere in an office of the el-Sisi government as well.
A reliable source has revealed that Malik was the middleman who introduced Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater to the Obama administration. In April of 2012, as a Muslim Brotherhood delegation was visiting the White House and doing a media tour, el-Shater’s decision to run for President of Egypt was announced. He was subsequently disqualified because of his rap sheet and prison sentences. Mursi took his place but as the Brotherhood’s Deputy Supreme Guide, el-Shater had a tremendous amount of power within the Brotherhood government.
This information would help to explain why Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham traveled to Egypt to call for the release of Brotherhood leaders, including Mursi and el-Shater. They did so as emissaries for Barack Obama. In addition to their bizarre mission, the Senators appeared panicked.
On the eve of their trip, then Secretary of State Bill Burns secretly met for 90 minutes with the jailed el-Shater on a Sunday night, hours before McCain and Graham landed in Cairo for a conversely high-profile visit. El-Shater’s chief of staff – Gehad el-Haddad – at first tried to deny the meeting between his boss and Burns took place and then attempted to say it only lasted ten minutes.
El-Haddad, who worked for five years as an employee of the Clinton Foundation, was soon thereafter jailed as well. In addition to Huma Abedin’s ties to the Muslim Sisterhood, the jailed el-Haddad provides el-Sisi with leverage on someone else – Hillary Clinton.
Barack Obama and el-Sisi best represent the world’s two most polar opposite views today and it is el-Sisi who has the biggest advantage – and more people flocking to his worldview, which is not muddled at all.
