That was in September. It received very little media attention. It is now 2015.
The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released last week.
While the President himself did not attend (as far as we know) the State Department meeting was attended by a deputy assistant secretary for democracy, human rights, and labor and other State Department officials.
The Muslim Brotherhood statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday Jan 29 in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.
“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom,” the statement from the Muslim Brotherhood reads.
Then February 4 2015 the President met with Muslim leaders in the East Room of the White House, off limit to reporters. We are not to know the content of the President’s message, only that it is none of our business, neither are we to know who attended the meeting, “since they are private citizens and their privacy needs to be protected”.
This does not pass the smell test.
Which leads to verse 22 of the Obama Impeachment song (sung to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)
I’m a Muslim Brother now,
as they declared Jihad somehow,
after White House sweet powwow.
What’s left of my bark: A weak bowwow.
And here is the whole impeachment song: https://lenbilen.com/2015/02/25/the-complete-obama-impeachment-song/
