Egyptian Secular Parties Blast Obama Administration for Supporting Muslim Brotherhood

Mahmoud Salem, whom most of you know as the Sandmonkey, an Egyptian blogger, spoke with CNN yesterday about the Egyptian Presidential election. Sandmonkey believes the Obama administration is backing the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Mohamed Morsi.
Via Israel Matsav:

“The US Administration should back off!”

Egyptian secular leaders held a rally today condemning the US administration’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood in the country. The speakers claimed the Obama Administration was forcing the military to hand over power to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Ahram Online reported:

Egyptian secular and liberal parties sounded dissatisfaction over the reported support of the US for Muslim Brotherhood’s presidential candidate, Mohamed Mursi, but affirmed they would accept the results of the elections due to be announced Sunday.

During a press conference Saturday, representatives of the Free Egyptians Party, the Democratic Front Party, the Revolution Continues Coalition, the Tagammu Party and the Kifaya Movement opened fire on the Brotherhood, voicing suspicion over the group’s sudden change of stance towards the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF).

The conference came after the Brotherhood announced Friday its concessions to revolutionary movements, guaranteeing their representation in both the government-to-be and the Constituent Assembly, in order to form a unified front against SCAF’s alleged attempt to hold onto power…

Several speakers at the press conference further condemned what they believe to be US intervention in Egypt’s domestic affairs. Harb claimed the US was pressuring SCAF to hand over power to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“We refuse that the reason someone wins is because he is backed by the Americans,” said Harb demanding that the Brotherhood should refuse US intervention.

“The revolution will continue until we break free of military rulie,” added parliamentarian Mustafa El-Gendy.

Founder of the Kifaya Movement, George Ishak, however, expressed his optimism over the coming period, adding that “a third political current, neither affiliated with religious groups nor the military, will pave its way.”

    At least somebody has some sense (and it isn’t the USA) to see what will happen if the Muslim Brotherhood takes over all of the middle east.

    I read that our military, the training soldiers and the ones that are out there in the field train alot or have trained a lot with the Egyptian Army. they have close relations with them.
    Wouldn’t it be better for theworldand egypt if the Egyptian Army ran things rather that the crackpots.

    It is none of the US’s buisness!
    George Washington; “A passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in the case where no real common interest exist, and into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into the participation on the quarrels and wars of the latter, without adequate inducement of justification it leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of the privileges denied others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions, by unnecessarily parting with what had ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill will, and disposition to retaliate, in the parties from where the equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluged citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interest of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity, guiding along the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, A commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliance’s of ambition, corruption, or infatuation”

    Islamic terror group hires assassins
    to make June ‘bloodiest month yet’

    [“The 300 suicide bombers are trained in how to handle military
    weapons and explosives,” he explained. “They took their training
    in places like Somalia and Mauritania. It has an international
    network, and it’s also a part of al-Qaida.”]

    but there are “no terrorists”..

    [President Obama and his national security leadership have bought into a false narrative promoted by organizations and leaders with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, such as CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and ISNA (Islamic Society of North America). Dozens of such individuals have been placed in his administration, including Dalia Mogahed, a top Mideast adviser to Obama who made the astounding assertion last October that most women in the world associate sharia law with “gender justice.”


    It states in part: “The Ikhwan must understand that all their work
    in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the
    Western civilization from within and sabotaging their miserable house…”

    and according to Obama, the US is evil.. gah!!

    Any wonder people believe he is a Muslim? Just because he doesn’t practice it openly, doesn’t mean he isn’t sympathetic to Muslim causes. Traitor in our midst…time for ejection. Military in Egypt will hold power despite the man child’s wishes…

    no wondering here, but i really don’t care what he is, all i care about
    is what he has done, is doing, and what he intends to do to USA..

    listen closely @ the 4:07 mark (#40)

    “I’m committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that
    they can fulfill Zakat [.] it is important for Western countries to
    avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they
    see fit”
