For conservatives, the mere mention of George Soros joining forces with the Muslim Brotherhood conjures images of an unholy alliance forged in the fiery pits of Mordor.
Yet according to several reports, including one from FrontPageMag on Monday, that alliance is in fact being forged. The reports connect George Soros to the Muslim Brotherhood through his various shadow organizations including the International Crisis Group and his new spokesmen, Marwan Muasher and Mohamed ElBaradei. Soros along with Muasher and ElBaradei have consistently been featured in media downplaying the threat of the Muslim Brotherhood — and even urged the Egyptian government to “normalize” relations with the militant group earlier in the year. Never failing to miss an opportunity to undermine the U.S. and Israel, Soros is working tirelessly to help the enemy of his enemies.
Consistently referring to Israel as the “stumbling block” to peace in the Middle East, Soros makes no bones about his hopes for the Brotherhood. He even heartily encouraged giving the Muslim Brotherhood a place at Egypt‘s table when the country’s streets erupted into flames of dissent earlier this year.
The numerous ties of Soros and his Shadow Party cohorts have been documented; they include the master puppeteer’s own Open Society Institute and various anti-Western Islamist groups in the revolutions. It has been confirmed, for instance, that the International Crisis Group (ICG), led in part by Soros, has long petitioned for the Egyptian government to “normalize” ties with the previously banned Brotherhood – for example, in a June 2008 report called “Egypt’s Muslim Brothers: Confrontation or Integration?” And this talking point is echoed by Brian Katulis, senior fellow at the Soros-funded Center for American Progress: “Any real democratic opening would lead to greater participation of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood in a future Egyptian government.”
To delve deeper Muasher, former deputy prime minster of Jordan, oversees research at the Soros-funded Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
