Extortion—The Brotherhood’s M-O

October 9th, 2013 - 3:56 pm

So what happens in the meeting? With millions protesting in the streets, Sisi is actually trying to work things out — to persuade the Brotherhood to agree to a new popular referendum on Morsi’s presidency. Shater’s response? Naturally, it is the Brotherhood’s standard response: extortion. Shater, al-Ahram tells us, warned Sisi “that if Morsi were to leave, terrorists he [Shater] wouldn’t be able to control — some of whom he claimed he didn’t know — would launch attacks across Egypt.”

Gee, nice country you have here. Sure would be a shame if someone, totally out of my control of course, burned it to the ground.

We Western sophisticates don’t get it, but Sisi, an Egyptian Muslim, knows exactly where Shater and the Brothers are coming from: “You mean you either accept this or die,” he replies, adding, “Do you only want to rule us or kill us?”

Yes.

Egypt is a long way from anything resembling a real democracy, a culture rooted in liberty, equality, and a respect for minority rights. But those currently governing Egypt have figured out that you cannot have both a real democracy and the Muslim Brotherhood. Would that those governing the United States could figure that out.

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.

If you want the real story of the Muslim Brotherhood:

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.

"We would grasp this if we were not so mulishly uninformed about the enemy’s ideology."

I think there are more unconcerned than there are uninformed. Just we've seen, and see, with other totalitarians.
