Egyptians Sign Petition Asking Obama To Designate His Muslim Brotherhood Friends As ‘Terrorists’


Barack Hussein Obama is all too quick to stab Israel’s Jews in the back, but the thought of doing it to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood will never cross his mind

By Caitlin Dewey, The Washington Post – “A WhiteHouse.gov petition asking President Obama to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization will far exceed the minimum number of signatures required to prompt an official response when it closes Tuesday. The catch? Many of the 174,000-plus signatures appear to come from Egyptians, not Americans.

This shouldn’t be too surprising, considering both the ease of registering for a WhiteHouse.gov account and the growing unpopularity of the Brotherhood among many Egyptians, exacerbated by a state media campaign since the military’s takeover branding the Islamist group as terrorists.

While the petition itself does not appear to have been originally authored by an Egyptian — the creator’s current town is listed as ‘La Mesa, California’ — many of the signees seem to be. The first person to send the link out on Twitter was an Egyptian dentist whose profile declares him as a ‘liberal.’ That was followed up by dozens of tweets from prominent Egyptians, including the celebrity news anchor (and former presidential candidate) Bothaina Kamel.

Notably, while the WhiteHouse.gov petition platform ‘We the People’ bills itself as a site for Americans, it doesn’t actually require that petitioners be U.S. citizens. That has made it a popular destination for foreign causes, though the Obama administration rarely takes action in response to such petitions. A petition asking the government to support Catalonia’s independence referendum, for instance, earned a terse statementon the ‘internal Spanish matter.’ And a response to an entreaty on Palestine rehashed the administration’s support for a two-state solution negotiated by ‘the Israelis and the Palestinians — not us.'” Read more.

    I signed the Petition on July 31st, the day I became aware of it!

    As much as I am a supporter of Israel, I try to stay away from the politics thereof because of its potential for ‘messiness’. What side am I on? I’m on the Lord’s side because He is the Captain of God’s Hosts. Instead of choosing sides, I decided to simply let the ‘Captain of the Lord’s Hosts’ take over the political situations all around the world.

    Concerning Egypt, the sincere Egyptians who wanted genuine change have turned the political situation in Egypt into a quagmire by forcing out of office a person who won by the majority of votes (true definition of democracy). Of course, there will be disagreements. There are tremendous disagreements in America between President Barack Obama and those who don’t want him in office. The disagreement is so intense that the state of Texas sent legal paperwork to the White House requesting to SECEDE FROM THE UNION. Obviously, the request was denied. That’s democracy and THE RULE OF LAW. Does Egypt’s revised constitution support the forced abdication of a President based on disagreements of governance? Is there a revised constitution in Egypt? Democracy is based on the rule of law which is the constitution. Where’s Egypt’s constitution? It was probably trampled on by the millions of citizens who demanded change for a second time. Any democracy that’s not based on the rule of law is no democracy at all. It’s a DICTATORSHIP!!!

    That’s why it is futile to bring ‘democracy’ to Muslim countries. First of all, Muslims are taking a mental note of what happens when they participate in a democracy. When they win by popular election (getting the most votes), they are forcibly removed from office because of governance issues. The constitution is the final word concerning governance issues. Any attempt to bring democracy to a nation without a constitution “on which it (democracy) stands,” all you will have is “regime change”. Let the people decide (within the framework of their nation’s constitution) who is to rule over them. In America, we have a very rigorous impeachment process (impeachment itself is political, the entire process is legitimate) that can force a President from office. If the Egyptians used a similar legal standard, I would support them. It’s one thing to crowd a popular gathering place and demand change from a dictatorship with the shell of a democracy. It’s another thing to crowd a popular gathering place and demand change from an ELECTED President who may not have the necessary skills to run a country. That’s why Presidents have an inner circle of experts to make his/her job easier to perform on the behalf of the people. (Former President Bill Clinton called it ‘The People’s Business.”)

    If you disagree with the Egyptian President’s inner circle, please get over it! I had to get over it concerning a US President who launched a war against another country based on fabricated evidence. I had to get over it concerning a US President who launched ‘secret wars’ to retaliate against another country. I had to get over it concerning a US President who didn’t know anything about neither economics nor education. I had to get over concerning a US President who almost lost his job because he committed perjury of the lowest form (to protect his family instead of trying to get re-elected). As an American citizen, there are a lot of things I have to get over because of the constitution. IT’S THE CONSTITUTION THAT GETS US OVER EVERY SINGLE TIME!!! Whose side am I on? I’m on the Lord’s side, and He is taking over the situation in Egypt as I’m preparing this long comment.
