The kind and friendly Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood – a group that President Obama has made clear he is eager to work with – has now condemned Israel for taking military action against terrorists in the Gaza Strip. Saturday, terrorists in Gaza began an all-out rocket assault on Israel’s southern cities. Since then, 100 rockets have actually hit Israel.
Now the Muslim Brotherhood has spoken out, calling Israel the “Zionist occupier,” a “racist state,” and the perpetrator of “the Zionist war that is operating under electoral calculations for personal gain far from humanitarian calculations for peace, security and stability.” They continued: “The killing of tens of our innocent Palestinian brothers is part of a link in a chain of oppression and Judaization that seeks to impose itself on the ground, and that will never materialize with God’s will.”
This is the much-vaunted “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood Obama championed. The Arab Spring is working out just as Obama hoped. It is only a matter of time before the Egyptian government ends the Camp David Accords once and for all.
