Raymond Ibrahim, a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, discussed Obama’s war crimes charges, shedding light on Egyptian lawyers filing a formal complaint at the International Criminal Court accusing Obama of crimes against humanity.
Mr. Barack Obama
The White House
While watching the news recently (there is only ONE channel that actually broadcasts “news,” so you most likely missed it), there was much discussion about your all too familiar inability to make a decision that would actually benefit this country in addressing the escalating disaster in the Middle East. I felt it my patriotic duty to try to help you sort through this mess that you have single handedly created.
Please keep in mind that I am trying hard not to be overly critical of your performance in dealing with what is fast becoming a second holocaust, but am simply trying to help. It would be totally inappropriate for me to be critical of someone who is so uniquely unqualified, ill equipped, and massively conflicted as to what to do. So let me offer some professional advice.
Unlike yourself and your academic cronies, anarchist criminals (i.e. Bill Ayers), and your America-hating Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright that you surround yourself with, I have actually lived in the Middle East for a number of years (i.e. Iran, Saudi Arabia, etc. etc.). I was close to the throne when Mr. Jimmy Carter threw the Shah of Iran under the bus, and you are following closely in his footsteps (but with far more dangerous and far reaching consequences.)
Your personal background has been enriched by your early association with the Muslim faith. This is true for myself as well. But our life experiences are drastically different. The vast majority of the American population, especially you and your cronies, have absolutely no understanding of the Muslim culture of the Middle East, which is significantly different from the Muslim culture of the Asian sub-continent and the world at large.
It is hard for tech-savvy Americans to envision a culture in which as much as 98% of the population can neither read nor write (and whose sole source of anything resembling information is fed to them five times a day by people whose sole motivation is POWER, a trait that would appear to have rubbed off on you.)
I experienced the revolution in Iran from the very first anti-Shah demonstration up to and including the return of the Ayatollah Khomeini; I was quite possibly the only American in the airport when the Ayatollah deplaned in Tehran.
As the Iranian revolution picked up momentum, I saw good-hearted Muslims who had been educated in this country slowly turn into “supporters” of the Ayatollah; not out of religious fervor but because of FEAR.
People instinctively fear raw violence, but they fear political and economic retribution even more so; not unlike a significant portion of our American society does since your regime came into power.
Your regime has consistently backed the Muslim Brotherhood and their allies, both overtly with billions of taxpayer dollars given in the name of “humanitarian aid,” and many say covertly through the redirection of arms and ammunition out of Iraq. And as a result, the entire Middle East is in flames; and a second holocaust is in progress. America cannot be far behind – which I am reasonably sure brings much joy to you and your cronies.
As you stand there on the golf course vacillating as to what to do, let me try to explain the situation in the simplest possible terms: The Muslim Brotherhood are the BAD GUYS, and everyone else COULD be our friends.
There has been much said about the “Democratically Elected Government” that was set aside by the Egyptian military. Democratically elected? CRAP!! There can be no “free elections” when members of the Muslim Brotherhood man the polls (and voter intimidation and massive voter fraud are the rule of the day.) There was a time when Klansmen (KKK) hovering about election polls intimidating voters was considered illegal. But now under your regime, it is evidently just fine for the Black Panthers to do the same thing; so perhaps you see nothing amiss when the Muslim Brotherhood follows your lead.
What we are facing is an irreconcilable difference in fundamental religious philosophy. In the simplest of terms, which may yet be a stretch for your massive lack of intellect, let me condense the opposing views:
Jesus said: “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Mohamed said: “Do as I say, or I will butcher you and your whole damned family.”
I realize that you may be confused about this term “Democratic,” given that you belong to a “Democratic” party that is in actuality the American Communist / Socialist Party. Ever since the creation of the “German Democratic Republic” (aka East Germany) in 1949, the Communist/Socialists have been fond of wrapping themselves in “Democratic” labels.
But there is a much larger issue here that cannot be cleverly obfuscated via skilled word-smithing, a uniquely American issue: FREEDOM!
I realize that you and your cronies find the concept of “freedom of the individual” most bothersome as is evidenced by your massive effort to stamp it out. But it is “freedom of the individual” that united a highly disparate and geographically dispersed people to stand together and “….with firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, (we) mutually pledge to each other (our) their Lives, (our) their Fortunes and (our) their sacred Honor.”
The need for Freedom burns deep in the heart of every human on the face of the earth. Your free cell phones, food stamps, and Section Eight housing may entice your people back onto the plantation in abject slavery; but history has shown that even the best kept slaves in our country’s past willingly risked their lives to escape their shackles.
Support for the Muslim Brotherhood in any manner should be considered a crime against humanity.
Your policy with respect to the Middle East should be quite obvious: hunt down the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood and remove them from the face of the earth. Your legacy is being created daily; and should you not change your course, your legacy will without a doubt rival that of Adolph Hitler for the pain and suffering you have delivered to freedom-loving people all over the world (especially to We The People of this once free nation.)

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) were found to be unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorist-funding trial in U.S. history—the 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial.
Yet the Obama administration has not only had contact with these groups, but has brought them into the White House—embraced them would be a more proper term—having “hundreds” of meetings beginning almost immediately after Obama ascended to power.
In 2009, a judge confirmed the Justice Department’s decision to name CAIR as an unindicted conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation conspiracy to smuggle funds to HAMAS, which is a jihadi affiliate of the Egypt-based brotherhood. Five men in the smuggling ring were sentenced to jail in 2009, including two who were given 65-year sentences.
Obama’s current chief counterterrorism advisor and CIA head appointee John Brennan spoke at an ISNA-sponsored (and White House approved) conference in February of 2010. Brennan used his time to parrot Barack Obama’s often-quoted meme about how great of a religion Islam was, about the “goodness and beauty of Islam,” that “Islam is a religion of peace,” etc. Brennan failed to explain, however, why jihadists continually refer to this “religion of peace” while strapping on suicide vests. Nor did he explain that the Holy Land Foundation trial named ISNA as a Muslim Brotherhood front group.
In October of 2011, the group Muslim Advocates wrote a letter signed by fifty-seven Muslim organizations, whose main signatories were CAIR and ISNA, demanding the Obama administration remove “bigoted” language found in FBI training materials— terms like “jihad” and “Islamist,” the rationale being that these terms “offended” Muslims.
Brennan responded to the letter personally and not only purged FBI training materials but implemented a mandatory re-training program for FBI agents; U.S. Army officers; and all federal, state, and local law enforcement who had been subjected to “biased training.” Those who refused to tow the politically correct line, like war hero and Army trainer Lt. Colonel Matthew Dooley, were summarily blacklisted.
Instead of purging FBI training materials of anything that “offends” the Muslim Brotherhood, America should purge this country of Muslim Brotherhood operatives John Brennan and Barack Hussein Obama.
Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi abruptly dismissed Egypt’s defense minister and other top generals over the weekend in an aggressive effort to remove a major brake on his own power.
Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi was formerly the most powerful official in Egypt and a major pillar of the former Mubarak regime. Morsi has now put himself in position to consolidate the Muslim Brotherhood’s control over Egypt.
In addition to sacking Tantawi, Morsi forced the resignation of the chief of staff of the army as well as the heads of the air force, navy, and air defense forces. This bold move amounts to a counter-coup against the “slow motion coup” that the military staged by stripping Egypt’s new parliament and presidency of most of their power shortly before the June presidential runoff election.
Morsi opportunistically exploited the army’s embarrassment over last week’s terrorist attacks by Islamist militants, which killed 16 Egyptian border guards in the Sinai. The decapitation of the top ranks of the armed forces allows Morsi to place his own candidates in key slots and reduce resistance to the radical political program of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood
Morsi’s Islamist-dominated government has also cracked down on Egypt’s media. State prosecutors recently announced that two Egyptian journalists will be put on trial for “insults” to the president.
Mohamed Morsi, of the Muslim Brotherhood, has been declared the new president of Egypt today in an announcement that triggered massive cheers in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.
What should Egyptians expect from their new president? Economic moves in the direction of central planning that will result in more suffering and poverty in the country.
Morsi doesn’t understand the importance of free markets and holds the naive belief that, through central planning, he his going to manage the country toward prosperity. Boy, is this dude in for a surprise.
Here are some of his views on economics as he delivered them in a speech on January 6, 2012.
He starts off by mouthing platitudes about freedom:
..the FJP emphasizes that it seeks to grant citizens the freedoms they deserve, to safeguard the fundamental rights of every Egyptian, and change all practices or legislation that challenge or restrict these freedoms or violate these rights. Freedom is one of Islam’s duties. “Indeed We have honoured the Descendants of Adam” (Quran, 17:70).

JERUSALEM — Members of the Syrian opposition are pressing to openly announce an affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood at a meeting scheduled to take place in Turkey later this week, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.
The opposition has been plagued by infighting, with competing divisions sparing with each other even since the movement was created in September.
Just last week, Syrian National Council leader Burhan Ghalioun announced his resignation after major divisions within his council reached a climax two days after the coalition voted to renew his term for another three months.
Ghalioun has faced criticism from some opposition members of being too close to the Muslim Brotherhood and of trying to monopolize power within the SNC.
“I will not allow myself to be the candidate of division,” he said. “I am not attached to the position, so I announce that I will step down after a new candidate has been chosen, either by consensus or through new elections.”
