Extortion—The Brotherhood’s M-O

October 9th, 2013 - 3:56 pm

In The Grand Jihad, my book about the Muslim Brotherhood, I noted the Brothers’ affectation of non-violent moderation when, in reality, their ideology preaches, prepares for, and practices forcible jihad. How, I rhetorically asked, does the Brotherhood pull this trick off? Well, it is pretty easy in the West, where the Brothers have the fortuity of dealing mainly with appeasers who are desperate to believe their lies. But for the most part, I argued, “the answer, very simply, is extortion.”

When not pretending to distance themselves from flat-out terrorist outfits like al Qaeda (the better to have Kool-Aid gulpers at the White House regard them as “moderates”), the Brothers leverage the atmosphere of intimidation created by violent jihad to advance the stealth jihad. Where necessary, the Brothers — while piously disavowing violence — will stoke the violence themselves. Remember, the Hamas terrorist organization is the Muslim Brotherhood — the global organization’s self-proclaimed Palestinian branch whose support has been a top priority of the Brotherhood’s international franchises (very much including in the United States) since Hamas’s inception.

For the most part, though, the Brothers exploit the mass-murderous proclivities of other Islamic supremacist organizations, essentially finishing the job for them. The job? Yes, it is all one job — sharia.

We would grasp this if we were not so mulishly uninformed about the enemy’s ideology. Islamic supremacists do not engage in wanton violence; they brutalize in order to advance sharia, Islam’s societal framework and legal code. Even if they occasionally disagree on tactics, al Qaeda and the Brotherhood are in complete harmony on the ultimate goal of imposing Islam on societies. To focus myopically on the tactical disagreements, as the West’s moderate-mania does, is to miss the forest for the trees. The Brotherhood is like the well-dressed mafia capo who knocks on your door — and whom you pay the loan-shark vig in the hope that the next visitor won’t be the al Qaeda button-man who breaks your knees before torching the place.

That’s a good image to bear in mind when you read Bridget Johnson’s informative post at the Tatler. I refer particularly to the excerpt from the al-Ahram report, describing General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s meeting, before Morsi’s ouster, with Brotherhood powerhouse Khairat al-Shater.

As I outline in Spring Fever, Shater, the Brotherhood’s charismatic “Deputy General Guide,” is probably the most significant Brotherhood figure in Egypt — more influential even than Supreme Guide Mohamed Badi. In fact, Mohamed Morsi was Shater’s protégé and only became the Brotherhood’s presidential candidate of choice when Shater, the preferred candidate, was dubiously disqualified from seeking the office by the transitional military regime, which saw him as more threatening.

And then there is the extortionist Gropestapo at the airports extorting everyone out of their 4th and 1st Amendment rights and dignity along with extorting the innocence of young girls as well as their respect for their fathers who stood by only being able to watch them being molested by some Chester the Molester or some Fat Cow.

All and all, this Shater is rather far down on my list of extortionists that need to be put down.

I don't want to hear about how good and nice these people are.

When a group of people believe that lying to non believers is acceptible and that harming those that don't believe is acceptible then we are in real problems.

I don't know that most US citizens are even capable of understanding the true agenda of stealth jihad, hell the good citizens of Minnesota have even elected and re-elected a stealth jihadist to the US House of Representatives since 2007.

When mentioning the Koran and the fact that it's filled with demands to "kill the unbelievers", I still get the blank stares and the "Well, the Bible has a lot of violent passages too" argument.

and you might recall that the violence in the Bible is a report of what has happened, which is far different from the Koran which advocates proactive and continuing violence

How is the Brotherhood MO any different to the Obama administration MO?
As we've seen and are still seeing in the "shut down" debacle; coercion and threats by illegal acts against private property owners (just one example of many) in order to achieve a result favorable to Obama. Something is amiss in the WH and maybe Obama's MB advisers are getting too involved in things other than national security and foreign policy.

This Shater does seem like an extortionist alright, but at least he's in Eqypt, not America, and when it comes to extortionists we've got even bigger ones right here at home in the U.S.A. No, I'm not talking about Obama right now, although he is certainly a grand extortionist too for sure, but the extortion that just doesn't get any more obscene and despicable is what comes out of America's anti-American NSA/STASI.

[Former National Security Agency chief] Gen. Michael Hayden: "Also, if you want to be less well defended just let us know."

What this despicable and degenerate excuse for a human being said is functionally the equivalent of saying, "Nice family you got there, especially the children. It would be a shame if anything happened to them because you opposed or even questioned anything we're doing at the NSA".

Now I ask you, which is the bigger problem for America, extortionists in low positions in Eqypt trying to extort Egyptians or extortionists in high positions in America actually extorting Americans?

Look at the repeated Democraps protestations when every exposure of yet another of the REGIME petty small minded obscenities is revealed - 'Obama did not know'. This is strangely reminiscent of the German populaces comments when yet another NAZI atrocity was exposed 'If only the Fuhrer knew" as they used to say.

but of course B.O. doesn't know, he told us he finds out just like the rest of us from the newspapers.


He must have forgotten that he isn't like us, he has intelligence agencies that are supposed to get him information prior to the people.

In yet another example of where the Incompetent, Unqualified USURPER and his corrupt REGIMES's sympathy's lie it has just been announced that the USA is slashing aid to Egypt. This aid of course was not affected at all even though it was thoroughly criticized when Morsi and the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD were in power and burning Churches and murdering Coptic Christians by the score .
'By their actions ye shall know them' and this disgusting REGIME shows just what they are by every pathetic petty , vengeful, callous, small minded, vindictive thing they do.

Obama's MO with Egypt at present is exactly that of Obama's MO with the U.S.A. is at present. Favoring the MB and his crony Socialists. Scary.
They will NOT win this war.
