Should The US Work With The Muslim Brotherhood Into the Political Process?


Whom should the United States support when it comes to Egypt’s new beginning? Should we take sides? Can we live with the choices we make today? Should the US support integration of the Muslim Brotherhood back into the political process? What about the Arab League, Israel, EU, UN, and others? Do we dare pick sides? If we demand or strongly suggest a meeting of the minds in the politics of Egypt’s very different thinking groups, will that actually serve the will of the people?

Who will it serve? What about our own value system, do we dare project our ideals upon an Egyptian population? If so, to what avail? If the Muslim Brotherhood does not join in the political process in the future, and really why should they after the military took over and threw their butts back onto the street, after they were duly elected, all within one-year of that election, then will their differences be worked out. If they don’t join in the politics, will they instead resort to violence? If so, who loses, who might they attack, and how does this serve the United States interests in the region.

If you have as many questions as I do, then perhaps before you give your mind to the mainstream media propaganda or political correctness in all this – there is an interesting book I’d like to add to your reading pile, in fact, it might be wise to put it on top, the name of the book is:

“The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy” by Erick Stakelbeck, Regnery Publishing, New York, NY, 2013, 256 pages, ISBN: 978-1621570332.

In his book summary he’s put on Amazon, he states;

“The Muslim Brotherhood, or Ikhwan, has engaged in terrorism, assassinations, and anti-Western, anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence for almost a century-yet few Americans realize how powerful they really are. While we focus on al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, it’s actually the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s oldest, most influential, and most anti-American Islamist group, that has become the preeminent voice and power in the Muslim world.”

What most people fail to comprehend is that what the Muslim Brotherhood says and does are often diametrically opposed, and we do have associated organizations of this group here in the US, not all of which should be considered friends to a Western way of living, or to the things we hold so dear – freedom, liberty, the pursuits of happiness, or the incredible diversity we have garnered through much hardship over the years.

Indeed, I ask that you please consider all this and think on it next time you watch the news and are led astray towards a different decision on whom you’d like to support in the Egyptian turmoil in the present period.
