-Director of National Intelligence: Muslim Brotherhood Largely Secular and Non-Violent

by Dr. D ~ February 11th, 2011

Here’s Obama’s DNI James Clapper testifying before Congress about the Muslim Brotherhood:

"The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ … is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam."

"They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera…..In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally."

Response: Such incredible naiveté. However at this point we can all hope that he is somewhat correct. Nevertheless, on their own website the Muslim Brotherhood calls for Sharia law to be more completely implemented in Egypt and for the voiding of the peace treaty with Israel. Not exactly secular and non-violent?

This doesn’t instill a whole lot of confidence in the Obama administration’s brand of intelligence. Add to that what CIA Director Leon Panetta said the other day when he admitted that all he knew about what was happening in Egypt he got from the media just like the rest of us. Then there’s Homeland Sec. Napolitano who’s supposed to be protecting all of us. Wow –reminds me of the 3 Stooges or the Marx Brothers at best. The keystone Cops can’t be too far behind?

To be fair, the Muslim Brotherhood website also has an article that condemns the recent violence against Coptic Christian churches and calls for greater protection, civil rights, and justice for the Coptic Christians in Egypt. It will be interesting to watch how this plays out in any new government. Will Coptic Christians end up in a better situation than before now that Mubarak is gone?

We really should be praying for Egypt and for our brothers and sisters in Christ living in that land.            *Top
