Egypt Protest Organizers Tied to Code Pink Efforts to Aid Terror Group Hamas

** This is a guest post by Andrea Shea King and Kristinn Taylor **

More revelations from Code Pink.

Medea Benjamin, leader of the left-wing, pro-Islamist-terrorist group Code Pink said in an interview Wednesday the group had previously worked with organizers of the campaign to overthrow the Egyptian government when Code Pink agitated in Cairo the year before.  Code Pink worked on behalf of the terrorist group Hamas against the government’s blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza. At the time, Code Pink said their safety in Gaza was guaranteed by Hamas.

Code Pink has acted as a go-between from Hamas to President Barack Obama. In 2009, Hamas gave Code Pink a letter for Obama. Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans, who is also a top fundraiser for Obama, visited the White House and met with a senior aide to Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett after one of the group’s trips to Hamas-controlled Gaza in 2009.

Speaking to Laura Flanders on GritTV, Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin made the startling revelation about previously working with the protest organizers to help Hamas when asked a question about outside influence on the protests.

Benjamin had just returned from a week in Cairo where she and her Code Pink lackey Tighe Barry had originally planned to lead Code Pink’s ninth trip to Hamas-controlled Gaza via Egypt in the past two years. That trip was cancelled by the Egyptian government in the wake of the protests.

As we previously reported, when Benjamin arrived in Cairo last weekend, she was brought to the nerve center of the protests (the Egyptian Center for Economic and Social Justice) and met with protest leaders.

Code Pink claims to have raised more than $10,000 to aide those in Egypt working to overthrow the Egyptian government.

Laura Flanders: “We want to debunk the myth that this was the all work of the brotherhood of Islam or the Islamic brotherhood or the work of Code Pink.”

(Plays video clip mocking Glenn Beck for pointing out ties between Code Pink and the Muslim Brotherhood.)

“But there is something in that space between a conspiracy of outsiders and a completely spontaneous eruption. There are groups on the ground–we’ve heard about the role of big labor movement. You found people on the ground who you recognized, who you knew from other work.”

Medea Benjamin: “We have been going to Egypt to get into Gaza several times. And on one occasion a little over a year ago we had 1300 people who were trying to go to Gaza with us called the Gaza Freedom March. And we were joined by many Egyptians who then lo and behold were among the people who were the organizers of this. Groups like the April 6 Movement, people who are part of the journalist groups, the lawyers groups, the, some of the, a group called Kifaya, which means ‘enough.’

So we had interacted with many of these people before. And in fact it was in that square (Tahrir Square) that we had been beaten up by the police just over a year ago. And I had a feeling Laura going back and forth to Egypt that this was going to explode…

Benjamin neglects to mention that among those who traveled to Cairo with Code Pink a year ago were former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, both of whom waged a Marxist terror war against the United States forty years ago. The Muslim Brotherhood coincidentally borrowed a Weather Underground tactic and name for their violent protests, the “Day of Rage.” On that day of rage police stations were ransacked and Muslim Brotherhood (as well as Hamas and al Qaeda) prisoners were reportedly freed from Egyptian prisons by rioting mobs.

While Benjamin ignores Code Pink’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (Code Pink advertised on the Muslim Brotherhood’s Web site beseeching jihadis to “Join us in cleansing our country!”), she does mention that the Muslim Brotherhood was involved in the protests at Tahrir Square:

“…I have faith in so many of the secular people who just came to (Tahrir) Square and said, “I’m not leaving here,” and for the first time made relationships with the Muslim Brotherhood people…”

Flanders raised an interesting point that critics of Glenn Beck have failed to raise–that the protests didn’t develop in a vacuum, that years of interaction by Egyptians with leftist outsiders experienced in fomenting revolutions and otherwise undermining governments helped lay the groundwork for the campaign to overthrow the Mubarak government.

Benjamin was kind enough to admit to the world that that indeed was the case–and that the groups involved were also involved in aiding the terrorist group Hamas by publicly challenging the blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza and provoking a violent response from the Egyptian government.

While the average man and woman in the Egyptian street may be protesting forfreedom and against corruption and government abuse, some of the organizers of the protests appear to have a different agenda–one of furthering radical Islam by aiding terrorists like Hamas with the help of Code Pink.

    Medea’s son must be spinning in his grave. From the mother of a hero to a communist traitor to the nation her son died for . . . . .

    Once upon a time this woman would have been tried for treason.

    Medea Benjamin has been arrested by the Egyptian military in Cairo yesterday. I am glad that they got her and she deserved to be in jail. She is ties with George Saros & Co. and Muslim Brotherhood. Obama is part of it and we need to vote him out of office in 2012.

    Granny, you must be thinking of Cindy Sheehan. Medea Benjamin has no children. I am sure she aborted them before they could be born so they would not slow down her Marxist activities.

  • Redwine

    Glenn Beck has been very instrumental for exposing the Code Pink/Ayers/Dohrn/Obama/SEIU/Soros connections to the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas.

    Mea culpa. You are right Retire 05. That’ll teach me to comment with one hand while watching TV and making croissants with the other LOL.

    Who in their right mind would name a child Medea? Such an evil name, even in antiquity.

    Huh, Imagine that. Who would’ve thunk it.

    It won’t be long before they are able to muster their coordinated worldwide ‘daze of rage’ and labor strikes. And with high inflation and growing numbers of unemployed they are likely to get many to join their cause.

    The thirst some people have for power at any cost is absolutely unbelievable. Communists like bill ayers have carried hatred and worked all of their lives for the moment when the entire world plunges into a bloodbath.

    The thing is once (if) conservatives have been defeated the communists will fight muslims, and whoever wins that will continue the fight between their own factions. Their fight never ends. Hundreds of millions will die in the process.

    And they say capitalism is evil???????

    Address to a Joint Session of Congress Following 9/11 Attacks

    [The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of Muslim clerics, a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam. The terrorists’ directive commands them to kill Christians and Jews, to kill all Americans, and make no distinctions among military and civilians, including women and children. This group and its leader — a person named Usama bin Laden — are linked to many other organizations in different countries, including the Egyptian Islamic Jihad and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan. There are thousands of these terrorists in more than 60 countries. They are recruited from their own nations and neighborhoods and brought to camps in places like Afghanistan, where they are trained in the tactics of terror. They are sent back to their homes or sent to hide in countries around the world to plot evil and destruction.]

    When I heard Director of National Intelligence James Clapper saying we had nothing to worry about with the moslem brotherhood I was wondering if code stank was the agents he got his info from.

  • retire05

    Granny, Cairo is not Medea Benjamin’s first rodeo. She met Leslie Cagan, a radical Marxist of United for Peace and Justice fame, in the mid 80’s. Out of those meetings came the idea for CodePink, a group of Castro supporting Marxists made up entirely of like minded women. But Benjamin had experience having started the Global Exchange with her husband that was responsible for the riots in Seattle.

    The idea behind CodePink (outside of promoting Marxist/Communist ideals) was to be so outragous that they would draw attention. Think about the color they chose; most people think it was to represent women, but the truth is that pink is “red” light, i.e. American Communism.

    Oh, and her real name is not Medea; it’s Susan. She changed it because she thought it sounded more classic.

    Put as we learn more, we will find that these Egyptian protests were not spontaneous. They were being organized a long as a year ago, because they became emboldened when they saw that Obama did not do anything over the Iranian riots.

  • OK, who’s surprised by this?? Raise your hand…




  • Buffalobob

    I not a lawyer but common sense would tell me that maybe just maybe some of these activists could be charged with plotting to overthrow a sovereign nation. They go into a foreign country with the intent to disrupt or cause the downfall of the government. They get arrested and the progs here in the US will cry foul and demand their release. It would be poetic justice if Ayers and his lovely wife were thrown in a hellhole of a jail for the rest of their lives.

    Let them go to Gaza. And maybe they can stand in front of or behind bulldozers and see if they can get Saint Pancakehood.

    Word has it, in high places, that when King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia heard that Barry threw his friend, Hosni, under the bus, he bi*** slapped him.

    #19 Navy –

    The heck of the thing is that the pinkos got kidnapped a few days back, had their passports taken away and everything. They were being hauled off, the car they were in got stopped at a military checkpoint, the guy who came to inspect the car had trained here in the US, loves America, recognized them as American and made their captors let them go!

  • mg4us

    Why isn’t Napalitano and Clapper watching Code Pink as a threat/link to terrorism. . oh they work for O-bumma. . .got it!

  • Yeah, they work for Zero..

    ‘On the heels of a Big Government article asking whether the Muslim Brotherhood and other anti-Mubarak organizations in Egypt have been learning their tactics from Obama allies Bill Ayers and Code Pink (as a result of connections made in Egypt one year ago) comes news that Code Pink is in Cairo and is involved in the protests.

    An audio file of a phone call by leftist activist David Swanson that day to Code Pink agitator Tighe Barry in Cairo was posted late Friday.

    Barry, in Egypt once again coordinating Code Pink’s latest group trip to Hamas-controlled Gaza, spoke with Swanson about his involvement in the protests.

    This trip by Code Pink marks at least their fifth to Egypt and Gaza in the past two years. Such frequent trips build networks and the opportunity for teaching tactics.

    Code Pink has traveled the world, working with terrorist groups and anti-American governments to undermine America, free Iraq, Israel, Egypt and other governments allied against Code Pink’s Marxist, jihadist friends.

    Code Pink does not protest Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when they visit in Tehran as his guest, nor do they protest Hugo Chavez when they visit him in Caracas. And Code Pink certainly doesn’t protest Hamas when they deliver aid to their terrorist ally in Gaza.’

  • Aaron

    Am I the only one who realizes marrying Code Pink to this situation is as deep as a puddle? Seriously Jim, there’s a lot better angles of attack. This makes you and us look foolish.

  • Chippy

    Code Pink, George Soros, Bill Ayers and his wife, George Soros and all the other leftist/socialist/communist organizations did not stop the Iraq War. They will also not bring any “change” to the Middle East.

    All these operations are abject failures!

  • mark

    Code pink aiding and abetting terrorist organizations means code pink=terrorist organization.

    I’ve noticed how liberals never let a crisis go to waste. Do you see how many signs in Cairo are now printed in English? Last week they were all Arabic. Pimping for the MSM cameras.

    these code pinkos need to spend some real jail time in the middle east. attention despots, foreigners wearing pink are trying to subvert your country- I am sure you know just what to do with them. i am also sure you don’t have pesky things like laws, justice, constitution, and bleeding hearts that would hold you back. not concerned with what you will do to them. i am sure you will file a missing persons report with the local newspaper.

  • feduptoo

    Someone, some government should arrest these agitators! Hopefully the Egyptian government will arrest them!

    They should be careful, they may end up in Egypt in a situation like poor Daniel Pearl.

    And the left has the gall to call members of the Tea Party every name in the book!

    You can bet George Soros helps fund this group too!

  • feduptoo

    When the Egyptian riots broke out, the Telegraph out of the UK, had an article placing Hillary Clinton and Obama as backers of organizations that helped organize these protesters in Egypt.

    A few days later, they had an article that SEIU and Trumka of Teamsters were also involved.

    They have opened a can of worms and don’t know what to do now.

    Egypt should kick everyone of these people out….I hope they get their hands on Soros too, and jail him!

    The Soros International Crisis Group was probably also involved in the Egypt protest, as they are in many countries.

    Soros and Barry (USA) are starting a bond fund to reconstruct the nation of Palestine, is there a nation Palestine?

    Interesting site

    Shows history of tweets by those coordinating the protest.

    wonder what far lefties were tweeting the group besides huffpro?
