Obama Stands by Muslim Brotherhood Endorsement: For the first time, a U.S. government supports granting a government role to an extremist Islamic organization: the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (INN, 02/02/11).
Norway invited Muslim Brothers to 'dialogue-lunch' - Egyptian Islamists praised Stoere (Norway's FM and self-styled Hamas activist), (VG, 02.03.11).
The West's Dangerous Flirt With The Muslim Brotherhood And Their branches,
by Dr. Michal Rachel Suissa, Senter Mot Antisenittisme: "The assassination of Osama bin Laden, was maybe a necessary, symbolic plaster on the wound the world experienced after the terror attack Sept. 11, 2011. But at the same time the West is fighting a war on terror, it is giving moral and economical support to terror organizations as al-Qaeda's parent organization, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Brotherhood's branch in Gaza, Hamas (by PA).
The demonstrations and removals of dictators in the Arab World have as expected strenghtened the Muslim Brotherhood's grip on the grassroots.
The Brotherhood strengthens their position of power in Egypt and is operative i large parts of the Muslim World... Christian minorities in Egypt, Libya, Lebanon and Syria report an increase in persecution, murder and forced conversions to Islam, especially of girls.
Indigenous peoples are suffering enormously during this Muslim, messianic wave, which fights freedom and modernity with all possible means and which tries to force us all back to the time of Muhammed.
While the Muslim population themselves suffer oppression and terror from these Islamic regimes, the West still refuses to face reality, and insist on "dialogue" with the executioners of death at the same time they have declared war against Ghadaffi and some Mullahs in Afghanistan.
Osama bin Laden and his second in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, were Brotherhood activists before they built their own terror organization, al-Qaeda.
Both terrorgroups have a common goal which is to make the world Islamic and regards the Western civilization’s democratic values and Christendom as primary enemies. Both regard jihad as the holy way to achieve that goal.
To neutralize al-Qaeda and at the same time collaborate with the parent organization; the Brotherhood or with their branch, Hamas, in Gaza, is an absurd and dangerous self-contradiction.

Mohammed Badie, The New Leader of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, in His Own Words
(by Steven Stotsky, CAMERA, Feb 7, 2011): Badie describes the struggle against Israel as a "priority" for the Brotherhood and he expands on what this entails:
[The Arab and Muslim regimes] have forgotten, or are pretending to have forgotten, that the real enemy lying in wait for them is the Zionist entity. They are aiming their weapons against their own peoples, while avoiding any confrontation with these Zionists and achieving neither unity nor revival for their nations. Moreover, they are disregarding Allah's commandment to wage jihad for His sake with [their] money and [their] lives, so that Allah's word will reign supreme and the infidels' word will be inferior...
"Today the Muslims desperately need a mentality of honor and means of
power [that will enable them] to confront global Zionism. [This movement] knows nothing but the language of force, so [the Muslims] must meet iron with iron, and winds with [even more powerful] storms. They crucially need to understand that the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life
He goes on to advocate an unending violent jihad against the "Zionist entity" until it is destroyed. "Resistance is the only solution, " he declared.
Badie's words clearly indicate that given the opportunity, he would abrogate the peace accord Egypt signed with Israel..
Badie condemns terrorism, but does not consider attacks against Israelis and American forces in the Middle East as terrorism: "Jihad must not be likened to terror. Jihad means making sacrifices in order to restore what has been stolen, defend one's property, expel the occupier, and make Allah's word supreme, while terror is occupying someone else's land..." (IkhwanOnline, March 18, 2010.)
Concerning the U.S., Badie shares his belief that "The U.S. is now experiencing the beginning of its end, and is heading towards its demise..."(Memri). Is the USA considered an occupying power in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.?
"Elections" in Egypt; Mussa, Fotouh, ElBaradei: Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood Leader to Run for President: Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh, a senior Muslim Brotherhood leader has announced plans to run for president of Egypt...will run as an independent (INN, 05/13/11).
Egypt: Amr Moussa Vows Tough Israel Policy if Elected President: Moussa, 74, also described a political landscape in which the long-banned Muslim Brotherhood would be dominant. It is inevitable, he said, that parliamentary elections slated for September would bring about a legislature led by a Brotherhood-led Islamist bloc (Jerusalem Post, 8 May 2011).
Hundreds of Islamists stone Egypt's ElBaradei: Islamists hurled stones and shoes at Mohamed ElBaradei,.. An official from the Muslim Brotherhood, the largest and most organized opposition movement, denied members of his group were involved.
"There are many types of Islamists. It's impossible that it was Muslim Brotherhood members, 100 percent impossible. We work with ElBaradei and coordinate with him," Gamal Nassar told AFP (Ynet News, 03.20.11).
Nobel Peace Prize Winner and Iran's Political Shield, ElBaradei: We'll fight back if Israel attacks Gaza: Former IAEA chief says if elected as Egypt's next president he will open Rafah crossing in case of an Israeli attack. “if Israel attacked Gaza we would declare war against the Zionist regime." "In case of any future Israeli attack on Gaza - as the next president of Egypt – I will open the Rafah border crossing and will consider different ways to implement the joint Arab defense agreement" (Ynet News, 04.04.11).
The Nobel Peace Prize 2005 was awarded jointly to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Mohamed ElBaradei "for their efforts to prevent nuclear energy from being used for military purposes and to ensure that nuclear energy for peaceful purposes is used in the safest possible way..."
Obama Reiterates: Israel-PA Peace is the Only Way: US President Barack Obama reiterated Tuesday it is “more vital than ever” for Israel and the PA to reach a final status agreement. Speaking with reporters following his meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah II, Obama said the political upheaval that has swept the Middle East presents an opportunity for Israel and the PA. “Despite the many changes, or perhaps because of the many changes that have taken place in the region, it's more vital than ever that both Israelis and Palestinians find a way to... begin negotiating a process whereby they can create two states living side by side in peace and security,” he said (INN, 05/18/11).
Hamas in Gaza: ‘End Zionist project in Palestine’:
A Hamas leader affirmed the group’s hard-line principles in a speech to thousands of Muslim worshippers Sunday, as they commemorated the uprooting of Palestinians during the 1948 war over Israel’s creation.
Palestinians mark the occasion this year “with great hope of bringing to an end the Zionist project in Palestine,” Ismail Haniyeh, the prime minister of the Hamas government in Gaza, told about 10,000 people at a Gaza City mosque.
Haniyeh’s apparent reference to Israel’s destruction could prove embarrassing for Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. He recently reconciled with Hamas after a four-year split and is trying to market the Islamic militants to the
international community as an acceptable political partner.
Marches commemorating the 1948 events, known in Arabic as “nakba,” or the “catastrophe,” were also planned in the Abbas-ruled West Bank and in Arab towns in Israel. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were driven out during the fighting more than six decades ago.
The dispute over the fate of the refugees and their descendants, now several million people, remains at the core of the Mideast conflict.
He said Palestinians have the right to resist Israeli occupation and will one day return to property they lost in 1948. “To achieve our goals in the liberation of our occupied land, we should have one leadership,” Haniyeh said, praising the recent unity deal.
As part of the that agreement, Hamas and Abbas’ Fatah movement are to share power in a transitional government until elections are held next year. The US and Europe consider Hamas a terrorist group and have said they will only deal with it if it renounces violence, recognizes Israel and honors previous peace commitments made by the Palestinians. Haniyeh reiterated Sunday that his movement would not recognize Israel at the outset (Arab News, May 15, 2011).
Egyptian FM Says Hamas a 'True Partner' for Peace:
Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabeel Arabi told Italian newspaper La Republica on Wednesday he had brokered the
deal in the hopes of creating "a true partner" for peace. "With this united Palestinian [government] Israel can negotiate for real, can carry through the implementation of UN Resolution 181 of 1947 which called for an Israeli and a Palestinian state," Arabi said in the interview.
Arabi, scheduled to become secretary-general of the Arab League in July, said Hamas would agree to negotiate with Israel, despite the fact that some of the organization's members called for violence against the Jewish State. Hamas co-founder Mahmoud al-Zahar said Wednesday he
rejected peace talks with Israel
and that Hamas would not allow Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to pursue them. Last week al-Zahar said any peace agreement with Israel would be a
prelude to war
On November 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly, passed Resolution 181 partitioning Palestine into two states, one Jewish and one Arab state. After the vote was announced, the Arab response was no to a Jewish state! The Arabs stormed out, threatening war and the annihilation of the Palestinian Jews. They demanded the entire country for themselves. The land on which Israel is located, contain only a fraction of the Palestine Mandate originally dedicated to the Jews as their homeland. Now, Israel is left with less than 20% of the Mandate Land. See also:

President Obama: The Jews Built our Cities, Cured our Sick...
On Tuesday afternoon, President Barack Obama opened the official "Month of Jewish Heritage" at the White House. President Obama welcomed some of the most influential Jews in the U.S. to the White House, from Members of Congress and Supreme Court Justices to Elie Wiesel, whom he called "a dear friend of mine and an inspiration to the world."
"This month," said Obama, "is a chance for Americans of every faith to appreciate the contributions of the Jewish people throughout our history –- often in the face of unspeakable discrimination and adversity. For hundreds of years, Jewish Americans have fought heroically in battle and inspired us to pursue peace."
The president acknowledged the many contributions of Jews to the United States. "They’ve built our cities, cured our sick. They’ve paved the way in the sciences and the law, in our politics and in the arts. They remain our leaders, our teachers, our neighbors and our friends."
"Not bad," concluded Obama, "for a band of believers who have been tested from the moment that they came together and professed their faith. The Jewish people have always persevered. And that’s why today is about celebrating the people in this room, the thousands who came before, the generations who will shape the future of our country and the future of the world."
An interesting comment to the article: "Pharaoh could say the same thing in the days of Moses. The great Pharaohs of Egypt like Ramses had Jewish healers and builders. From the time of Joseph to the time of Moses, Egypt enjoyed the blessings of its Hebrew residents. But alas, over time, Pharaoh forgot Joseph and God brought judgment on Egypt because Pharaoh's heart was turned against the Jew" (RANGER, Oceanside).
Obama: "A Full and Phased Withdrawal" by Israel to "1967 Lines:"
US President Barack Obama dramatically changed US foreign policy - sandbagging Israel and aligning himself with PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas' preconditions for talks - when he called Thursday for a "full and phased withdraw of Israeli forces" from "occupied Palestinian lands" to the 1949 armistice borders that Israel's former Foreign Minister and UN ambassador in 1967, Abba Eban, referred to as the "Auschwitz borders." He left room for some "land swaps" at those borders.
Obama's comments came during his much anticipated policy address at the State Department in which he outlined the United State's new foreign policy for the Middle East and North Africa in light of the "spring revolutions" that have rocked the region.
Saying the world was tired of "nothing but stalemate" in the Arab-Israeli conflict, and complaining that "settlement activity continues" while the "Palestinians have walked away from talks," Obama said Israelis cannot obtain the dream of a democratic and Jewish state through "occupation."
He also mentioned that the PA state should be contiguous. This word may refer to Judea and Samaria's Jewish communities that separate Palestinian areas from one another, or even more dangerously, refer to a connecting road between Gaza and Judea and Samaria, which would make Israel non-contiguous "Our policy is two states for two peoples. Israel as a Jewish state for the Jewish people. Palestine as a Palestinian state for the Palestinian people. A viable Palestine; a secure Israel."
Calling for final negotiations on permanent borders - although he left only land swaps to negotiate - and security before deciding the “future of Jerusalem” and "Palestinian refugees," Obama said he believed these "wrenching issues" would eventually be solved because, in his words, "I am convinced majority of Israelis and Palestinians would rather look to the future than be trapped in the past."
Abbas has stated almost the same thing: that returning to the 1949 Armistice lines is non-negotiable, but included Jerusalem in those borders, and said that only the refugees are a negotiable issue.
While saying the US would "make every effort" to advance the "cause of peace" Obama outlined no plan - other than Israeli concessions - for achieving an agreement between Israel and the PA (INN, 05/19/11).
Obama vowed that as president he would not force Israel into making concessions that would put the country in danger for the sake of the peace process.
"I don't think that Ms. Livni or Mr. Barak or Bibi (Likud opposition Leader) Netanyahu or the others, President Peres, when they spoke to me today got any sense that I would be pressuring them to accept any kinds of concession that would put their security at stake,.."
Netanyahu, the Likud chairman and former prime minister, said following their talks Obama promised never to seek to damage Israel's security. Both men agreed on the "primacy" of preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear power, Netanyahu said... (Haaretz, 23.07.08).
Senator Barack Obama at AIPAC 2008 “Let me be clear, today I speak from my heart, Israel’s security is sacrosect, it is non-negotiable... and Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided (Youtube).
Obama Addressing AIPAC: 'Hamas, Release Gilad Shalit' : U.S. President Barack Obama addressed the AIPAC Policy Conference 2011 Sunday in Washington, D.C. He called on Hamas to release abducted soldier Gilad Shalit and to accept the Quartet's three conditions for granting it legitimacy. He maintained that he did not say anything fundamentally new
in his Thursday speech
, when he mentioned the "1967 borders" as a basis for future peace.
“What I did Thursday was to say publicly what has long been acknowledged privately,” he explained. “I did so because the world is moving too fast for us to wait another decade. Delay will undermine Israel’s security.”
He concluded with a quote from the Talmud, which says that as long as a person breathes, he should not abandon faith
America is equal to Hamas in holding Jonathan Pollard unjustly in prison, See 'Prisoners of Zion'
However, the prophet Jeremiah (16:19) says that the gentiles will come to the Jewish people "and shall say: 'Our fathers have inherited nought but lies, vanity and things wherein there is no profit.' See also Zechariah 8:20-23, Michah 7:15-20.
The prophets Isaiah Ch. 2 and Michah Ch. 4 foretells the restoration of the Temple and how the nations of the world will stream to seek out God and His Torah.
Further, the Torah (Deut. 4:4-8) says that the nations of the world will look at the Torah and say; "What a great Law this is!" They will throw away their own ideas about God and replace it with the Jewish one!
God has always told the Jewish People, that they should not follow the religions of the nations, because in the end of days, they shall come back to Him. "...In thy distress, when all these things are come upon thee, in the end of days,.." "And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, THE BLESSING AND THE CURSE, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt bethink thyself among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,.."(Deut. 4:27-31, Ch. 30). The choice of whether to accept the Torah or not, is nothing less than the choice between blessing or curse.
"And I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed' (Genesis 12:3). As God has kept his covenant with Abraham (Lev. Ch. 26, Deut. 11:26-28, Ch. 28), so God will keep His covenant with us (Genesis 9:8-17, Isaiah 24:6-9).
Report: Iran Building Rocket Bases in Venezuela:
The Iranian government is moving forward with the construction of rocket launch bases in Venezuela, the German daily Die Welt wrote on Friday. Iran is building intermediate-range missile launch pads on the Paraguana Peninsula, and engineers from the Khatam al-Anbia construction firm owned by the Revolutionary Guards visited Paraguana in February. Amir al-Hadschisadeh, the head of the Guard's Air Force, participated in the visit. Twenty-meter deep rocket silos are planned. The Iranians paid in cash for the preliminary phase of the project (Jerusalem Post, 05.17.2011).
Jeremiah 31:32-33 "But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the LORD, I will put My law (Torah) in their inward parts, and in their heart will I write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people; and they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying: 'Know the LORD'; for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more." See 1 Sam. 17:49, Daniel 2:35, Isaiah 11:9, Hab. 2:11-14.
"A Christian supersessionist is one who embraces replacement theology and holds that God’s covenant and relationship with the Jewish people has been replaced by the Church. According to this teaching, Christians are connected to God under a “new covenant,” (According to Christians; NT=Jeremiah 31:30-31) and are heirs to all the blessings that were originally bestowed upon the Jews in the “old covenant”
(Rabbi Tovia Singer, Will God Only Save the Jews?
From the depths of despair, we can call out in His Name and pray to the God of Israel….for just as He is keeping His promises with Israel—so He will shine the light (Isaiah 49:3-6, 42:1-7, 2:1, Proverbs 6:23, Job 29:2, Psalm 18:29, 119:105, 27:1) throughout all of the world and show that He alone is our source of faith, hope and redemption.
Obama Underwhelms with Support for 'Arab Spring'
United States President Barack Obama expressed his support for the successful overthrow of long-term Arab leaders in his speech on the Middle East this week, terming overthrows in Egypt and Tunisia a “revolution” that “should not have come as a surprise.” However, his approach failed to appease the Arab world, where many remain angry that America supported the overthrows only when it was clear they would succeed (INN,
Daniel 2:42-44 "And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so part of the kingdom shall be strong, and part thereof broken.
And whereas thou sawest the iron (Christendom) mixed with miry clay (I-slam), they (Jewish seed) shall mingle themselves by the seed of men; but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron doth not mingle with clay."
These peoples will not be truly attached to one another just as iron and clay don't hold together.
"And in the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom (David's kingdom), which shall never be destroyed; nor shall the kingdom be left to another people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, but it shall stand for ever. " See also Daniel Ch. 7.
Saudis call Obama speech meaningless drivel:
Saudis dismissed US President Barack Obama's much-anticipated "Arab Spring address" as meaningless, predictable drivel while Egyptians and other Arabs, to whom Obama offered some sops, also did not find anything new in the speech, which according to them focused on US interests.
Hatoon Al-Fassi. "...what I remember the most is his defense of Israel. 'US commitment to Israel's security is unshakable', I had some hope, but when he said that I lost all interest. All his words after and before just rang hollow."
Al-Fassi said people in the Arab world had high hopes after his speech in Cairo two years ago, "but when it came to action he turned out to be a hypocrite like all previous American presidents..."
Mutlaq Al-Anazi: "When you support Israel then you lose the moral high ground that we expect American presidents to take when dealing with the Palestinian-Israeli issue."
Abdul Nasser Abdul Ghani, said the speech contained many important things and reiterated US support for Israel.
“IT ALSO REFLECTED AMERICA’S DOUBLE STANDARD,” he said.
He said the revolution in Egypt was created by not only the call for democracy but also issues like unemployment and poverty.
Hadi Fakihi said,
"I watched Obama live and I think it was unimpressive. For us, the most important issue is Palestine. He kept talking about the revolution in the Arab world but people want to know what is happening to Palestinians. They deserve freedom as well, don't they? Nothing has happened on that front. We acknowledge his happiness and support for the freedom and democracy in the many nations of Arab world, but then why should Palestinians be left behind? They are oppressed people, too."
Fakihi said the US president would be judged on the actions that he takes on the ground rather than the empty rhetoric.
"In any case America did not play any role in the changes that have or are taking place in the region. We all know it. This is our script. What is your contribution? Nothing," he added (Arab News, May 19, 2011).
The Prophet Obadiah reveals to us the true nature of Edom, descendents of Eisav, and displays her two-sided character. It teaches us to recognize Edom's perpetual hatred for the Jewish people and never to trust her friendship.
Although there may be moments when Edom displays true brotherhood we must always be wary of these situations and never establish any close association with her.
We are reminded of the unique "brotherhood" of Edom. Due to their two-faced character, they could easily pass for true brothers awaiting to help the Jews in their time of distress (Jer. 30:7-11, Dan. 12:1, Obadiah). But, in truth, this disguise only provided them a perfect opportunity to eradicate any trace of the Jewish people, should the situation arise (Parshas Vayishlach Ovadia by Rabbi Dovid Siegel, Torah.org). See 'High Places'
Jews don't trust the Americans, they put their trust in their God and that He will redeem them from the wicked nations, as He always has done.
Bibi Rejects '67 Lines,' Warns Against Illusions:
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with United States President Barack Obama on Friday, one day after
Obama gave a speech
on the Middle East in which he called for a new Arab state in Judea and Samaria “based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed upon swaps.” Netanyahu openly stated his own views on the Israeli-Arab conflict, and warned, ““A peace based on illusions will crash eventually on the rocks of Middle Eastern reality.”
During the meeting Netanyahu flatly rejected the possibility of basing the borders of a Palestinian Authority-led Arab state on the “1967 lines,” or 1949 armistice line. “While Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines,” he said. “These lines are indefensible, because they don't take into account certain changes that have taken place on the ground, demographic changes” (INN, 05/21/11).
Palestinians to proceed with UN recognition bid:
Senior Palestinian officials say that negotiations with Israel have become pointless after Israel’s PM rejected President Barack Obama’s call to base Mideast border talks on the pre-1967 war lines.
Israeli Pm Netanyahu’s stance only strengthened the Palestinian resolve to bypass such talks, and seek recognition of a state at the UN instead, said Nabil Shaath,..
Shaath said after the Netanyahu-Obama meeting that “we will escalate our diplomatic efforts to get the recognition of the Palestinian state.” Shaath noted that Obama didn’t threaten a veto.
“We still hope that he will not do so, and that he will not stand in our way to freedom and independence, which he called for for all the Arab nations,” Shaath said.
Erekat said, the Israeli leader is not a partner for peace,..
