Obama Helps the Muslim Brotherhood's War on Egyptian Women
By

COMMENTARY
| President Barack Obama has hit upon a re-election strategy, according to Reuters, by wooing working women and accusing Republicans of waging a "war on women." Yet Obama is hosting the Muslim Brotherhood at the White House, according to AFP.

This represents a kind of doublethink that would have shocked George Orwell. It seems the Obama administration is capable of accusing Republicans of hating women for not wanting to see the Catholic Church hand out free birth control contrary to the Church's doctrine. While it is doing this, it is treating with a terrorist group that has as its governing platform the imposition of Sharia Law, which would send Egyptian women into lives of degradation and oppression.

The Muslim Brotherhood looks to capture not only the Egyptian Parliament but is now running a candidate for president of that country. This seems to be just fine for the White House. It has released $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the nascent Muslim Brotherhood government whose "war on women" is very real and will have lasting consequences, according to the National Review.

The shamelessness of the Obama position is shameless almost beyond the human capacity to comprehend. While trying to scare American women into believing that the evil Republicans are going to force them into become barefoot and pregnant, the White House proposes to help an Islamist terrorist group do far worse to Egyptian women.

The imposition of Sharia Law in Egypt will make women in that country no better than chattel, discriminated against by both law and religious custom. Under the previous regime, as oppressive as it was in some ways, Egyptian women had some measure of equality. Now they are being subjected to "virginity tests," for which an Egyptian doctor was recently acquitted in a controversial ruling,according to USA Today.

It seems that the Obama administration's hypocritical behavior should give an opening to Republican opponents. The Obama administration has not only failed to speak out against the war on women being conducted by the Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist allies, but is actually treating with the terrorists, and is paying them. In effect, President Obama is paying Islamists in Egypt to degrade and oppress women while pointing fingers at Republicans.

Has there ever been an administration so bereft of shame?

    The problem with arguments about funding in this context is that if you are dealing with a government that is truly corrupt, or truly violating human rights, denying funds and imposing economic sanctions tends to harm those being harmed by the government even more in general, and concentrate more power in the oppressor.

    You know what I'm failing to see here? Any evidence. Yes, the President is hosting representatives of the MB. That doesn't mean they are supporting or endorsing them in any way shape or form. Talk about grasping at straws, zbacku.

    Obutthead is supportive of his childhood muslim links. He is a christian for political purposes only. His support of every muslim despot and organization speaks louder than his words. He may have got Ben Laden but only because doing so will get him re elected. More likely, Barry Soetoro's roots are deep in socialism, muslim unrest, and communism.

    You are aware that Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham recently met with the Brotherhood on a visit to Egypt. Right??

    At present, another hard-line Islamist candidate is now leading the post Mubarak race. The Brotherhood over the weekend nominated a prominent and popular businessman to run against him. It makes no difference what the West thinks about the MB, the group will play a prominent role in Cairo going forward. The decision to meet with the MB doesn't have a damn thing to do with women there. There is something else. Perhaps you have heard of it? The Suez Canal? Pretty critical it stays open and the Iranian warships nearby are kept at bay.
