Barack Obama Calls Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt to Congratulate Him on Big Win

Barack Obama called Muhammed Morsi last night to congratulate him on his milestone win.

Morsi campaigned on his hatred for Israel and jihad against the Jews.

CNS News reported, via Lucianne:

President Obama phoned the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi on Sunday evening to congratulate him on becoming Egypt’s new president, the U.S. Embassy in Cairo said in a Twitter message around 7 PM eastern time. Earlier, White House press secretary Jay Carney in a statement called the Islamist’s election a “milestone” in Egyptians’ transition to democracy. “Millions of Egyptians voted in the election, and President-elect Morsi and the new Egyptian government have both the legitimacy and responsibility of representing a diverse and courageous citizenry,” he said.
