President Morsi is making political waves in his inaugural speech, stating that he will win the release of Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the convicted mastermind behind the WTC bombings in '93. Rahman is in the Federal clink in North Carolina.

Predictably, Morsi's statements have US officials seeing red, prompting many to issue statements of their own:

“It’s disgusting for a head of government to state in his inaugural speech that a man who attempted to commit mass murder should be freed.”

“The fact that he said this in his first speech says to me that this is from the heart, and the Muslim Brotherhood has been trying to convince us that they have changed.

- Rep. Peter King, (R-NY)


The call for release framed as a Humanitarian gesture?

Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy, who led the prosecution against Rahman in 1995, said it isn't surprising that Morsi believes he has a chance.

“Egypt is going to pitch this as a humanitarian gesture,” McCarthy said. “We have an administration which just issued a visa to Hani Hour Eldin, and he is a part of the Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya. This is an organization we use to take very seriously. LINK - Fox


Seems the President-elect has a population to appease and addressing this agenda in his inaugural speech is a pointed move to front and center an agenda that has been simmering amongst the Brotherhood all along. How it rates on the international scale is yet to be seen....


Few Egyptians appeared to notice Mr. Morsi’s comments about Mr. Abdel Rahman, and it was not clear whether they might play into suspicions among some in Washington of the president-elect’s roots in the Muslim Brotherhood, an 84-year-old Islamist group with a history of opposition to the policies of the United States and Israel.

Was thinking the same thing. But don't for get at the end of his first term he does have the power to grant pardons like every other President before him.

Just to be clear - Morsi is making these comments to the people of Egypt - he hasn't yet, contacted Washington with his request. Sounds a lot like rebel-rousing rhetoric, no?


On Sunday, Morsy spokesperson Yasser Ali said that the president’s statements on releasing Abdel Rahman were based on sympathy for his family, from a humanitarian perspective and not a legal one. Egypt Independant

Did anyone actually expect this entire cluster F*&K in Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood to go any differently?

We have Mubarak, now dead, rest his soul, who was at peace with Israel for all of these years, RIPPED from office by what I believe was a US FUNDED coup, and then, the KIND AND FRIENDLY Muslim Brotherhood, who Obama said were "our friends" and interested only in "peace" now asking for us to release the one man who is the reason we are at war with Islam.

SOURCE


Did anyone really think that the new Muslim Brotherhood (MB for short) to be sympathetic to the USA when in fact, their entire existence since the 1940's has been for revolution and Jihad?

How do any of you who think otherwise sleep at night?

What a damn shame this is. And what a charade our government is conducting upon this Earth.




In Cairo, President-elect Mohamed Morsi proclaimed to hundreds of thousands of supporters in Tahir Square on Friday that he will gain the release of Rahman, who is in a federal prison in North Carolina after having been convicted of masterminding the bombing that killed six and unsuccessfully plotting to blow up other landmarks, including the United Nations.


Are there people in this world stupid enough to believe that the Radical Islamists are just our friends now that they are in power in what USED TO BE a friendly Egyptian state?




The Brotherhood's credo was and is, "God is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations."
SOURCE





It is said that “Revolutions are started by intellectuals, carried out by fanatics, and the fruits harvested by rogues.” This was clearly illustrated in Egypt: The massive demonstrations in Tahrir Square were the work of students, merchants, and an assortment of other groups. The Muslim Brotherhood did not join the people; they wanted first to see how it turned out. But with the exile of their nemesis, Hosni Mubarak, they found their courage and jumped on the wagon. Even then, in order not to frighten the people, they “promised” NOT to seek a majority in the Parliament , and NOT to field candidates for the presidency. We now know that they broke both promises.

Some experts, and the Obama administration, accepted and even reinforced the subterfuge of the Brotherhood and their false and calculated modesty.They rationalized that the Muslim Brotherhood
controlled only 25 to 30 percent of the population and thus, couldn’t win the elections, even less the presidency. We now know they were wrong on both counts.


SOURCE




Today, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) and Congressmen Trent Franks (AZ-02), Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Tom Rooney (FL-16) and Lynn Westmoreland (GA-03) sent letters to the Inspectors General of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the Department of State. These letters seek answers about the U.S. government’s involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that calls for "civilization jihad."


SOURCE

Really Mr. President? And the first place you spoke publicly after you were first elected was where?




“The Muslim Brotherhood is one faction in Egypt. They don’t have majority support in Egypt, but they are well organized and there are strains of their ideology that are against the U.S., there’s no doubt about it,” Obama said. “But here’s the thing that we have to understand, there are a whole bunch of secular folks in Egypt, there are a whole bunch of educators and civil society in Egypt that wants to come to the fore as well. So it’s important for us not to say that our own only two options are either the Muslim Brotherhood or a suppressed people.”

To avoid such scenarios, Obama said that the U.S. must make sure “that we get all the groups together in Egypt for an orderly transition and the one that is a meaningful transition.'
-- February 1, 2011, Barack Hussein Obama.

Please, anyone in ATS land, tell me how this is supposed to end peacefully? Has the entire world gone insane? Am I the only one who sees this and what is yet to come?

....pounding my head on my desk.

Why is the US paying upwards of 80k a year to feed, house and secure this scum?

release him or we lob missiles and mortars at Israel maybe?

... sadly for Egypt, the US will either be at war with everyone or this war will never occur.

other nations will not allow Egypt to dictate a tipping point on the ME over this man.

Oh this, is the last straw. Threatening to tear down our precious pyramids! Oh, my, gawd.

Well after careful consideration I have decided yes, they must go at once. No, they must go at once. That is the only way to stop people from using them to get attention.

President Morsi returns to Egypt after a quick visit to Saudi Arabia



english.ahram.org.eg...

And we will build a new one in Burma and cover it in Burmese Jade.

Do you want to know why Britain tried to rename it? I will tell you why my friend. Because they don't want people to say, Burmese jade. They want them to think Mayan gold.

They are very tricky those Brits.

But the riches of Egypt??? The land of the Pharaohs?

A land full of secrets. And beneath that, another older one full of more secrets.

You see there is something magical about Egypt, but what it needs is a new International trade hub, and it needs to put it somewhere nice, by some water, and it needs to have the most fantastic brand new public market not far away, where people can buy fresh goods from all over the world. And the exotic goods from the East.

This website isn't what it used to be.
93 WTC bombing ?

Wasn't it clear this was an inside job?

If so, who is responsible?
That parasite terrorist wanna be ?

Ahh yes, the good old "fear the brown man", again.

Well, you know - the thread wasn't about who dun it - but having said that, President Morsi's statement calling for release wasn't based on proclaiming the man's innocence, it was because he "felt sorry for his family..."

One of the leding 'intellectuals' of the Muslim Brotherhood was Sayyid Qutb - the man who inspired Osama. Anyone that believes for a minute that their underlying extrimist ideology has changed is dreaming - only their methods have.

But the US will release him in the end.

You see, the US violates the human rights of citizens of other countries if those countries are ruled by corrupt leadership. Case in point, the US pays Pakistan billions of dollars and it has been given leave to kill as many Pakistanis as it wants.

Now the US will have to appease 80 million Egyptians or watch them jump down the throat of it ally Israel which has just stolen another gas field in the Egyptian coast.
