Crawling out from under some rock, Sheehan headed over to Egypt, this past Wednesday, to protest the military trials of some 40 members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Now, don't get me wrong, I am by no means a fan of Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, who was ranked number 17 in Parade's "2008 Top 20" list of the world's worst dictators. Mubarak happens to jail bloggers who are critical of him. Egyptian blogger, Kareem Amer, was sentenced to 4 years in prison, on February 22nd 2007, for “inciting hatred of Islam” and for defaming Mubarak, and has been languishing in jail ever since.
But defending the Muslim Brotherhood? The same Muslim Brotherhood whose credo is:
Allah is our objective.
The messenger is our leader.
Quran is our law.
Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.
and main objectives are:
1- Building the Muslim individual: brother or sister with a strong body, high manners, cultured thought, ability to earn, strong faith, correct worship, conscious of time, of benefit to others, organized, and self-struggling character .
2- Building the Muslim family: choosing a good wife (husband), educating children Islamicaly, and inviting other families.
3- Building the Muslim society (thru building individuals and families)and addressing the problems of the society realistically.
4- Building the Muslim state.
5- Building the Khilafa (basically a shape of unity between the Islamic states).
6- Mastering the world with Islam.
Note their 6th objective: "Mastering the world with Islam."
For anyone who might not understand the true meaning of that sentence, I'll translate: we want the whole world to be Muslim, just like us.
And for those of you who might not be aware, the Muslim Brotherhood is not just active in the middle east, it is a global movement that has branches in over 70 countries, including the U.S. They've been here since the 1960s, and although they'd like to consider themselves moderates, they are far from it.
So, rather than appealing to Egypt's first lady Suzanne Mubarak for clemency for people who truly deserve support, like Kareem Amer, Cindy Sheehan was out there demonstrating for the Muslim Brotherhood 40, with their ties to terrorism. Frankly, I'm not surprised considering she's had tête a têtes with fellow loon Hugo Chavez, further proving her discernment faculties are sorely lacking. But, she can now add another credit to her to her ever increasing resume' of colossal acts of stupidity!
Thank you Cindy for constantly entertaining us with your foolishness.
