Islamic Terrorists Take Liberal Talking Points. Again

This could have almost come from a Democratic press release

( – The United States and its foreign policies have come under fire at a conference on relations between the U.S. and Islam, with figures like suicide bombing apologist Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi accusing America of responsibility for Muslims' animosity.

Qaradawi, a Qatar-based Sunni scholar regarded as the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, told the U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha the U.S. had created the problem by searching for "an alternative enemy" in the wake of the Soviet Union's collapse.

"The U.S. has initiated the animosity when the neoconservatives chose Islam as an alternative enemy," Gulf Times quoted him as telling the gathering, whose several hundred participants included high-level U.S. State Department officials. The three-day meeting ended on Monday.

Beyond saying that it has been the Muslims initiating attacks against the USA and its people, what point in responding? Like Liberals worldwide, the Muslim fanatics want to blame everyone but themselves.

What is the Mulsim Brotherhood?

Founded in 1928 by the Egyptian activist Hasan al-Banna, the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood is one of the oldest, largest and most influential Islamist organizations. Egypt has historically been the center of the Brotherhood's operations, though the group maintains offshoots throughout the Arab-Muslim world — including in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, the Palestinian territories (Hamas), Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Sudan — and is also active in the United States and Europe.

The Brotherhood was founded in accordance with al-Banna's proclamation that Islam be "given hegemony over all matters of life." Accordingly, the Brotherhood seeks to establish an Islamic Caliphate spanning the entire Muslim world. It also aspires to make Islamic (Shari'a) law the sole basis of jurisprudence and governance. Toward this purpose — encapsulated in the Brotherhood's militant credo: "God is our objective, the Koran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, struggle is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations" — the Brotherhood since its founding has supported the use of armed struggle, or jihad. The Brotherhood supports the waging of jihad against non-Muslim "infidels," and has expressed support for terrorism against Israel, whose legitimacy the Brotherhood does not recognize, and against the West, particularly the United States.

As the article points out at Discover The Network, they aren't quite as violent as many other Islamic groups, but, it is all relative.

Even as it is deemed insufficiently militant by some Islamist groups, the Brotherhood has had a discernible influence on contemporary jihadist terrorism. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the architect of 9/11, was a member of Muslim Brotherhood. More prominently still, Abdullah Azzam, a Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood preacher, was a mentor to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

Liberals are sure to listen.

  1. “U.S.-Islamic World Forum” is puzzling text. What is “U.S.” doing in the name of this forum? Why were top level gov’t officials there? Was the US specifically invited and thus the name or what? Nevermind, I’ll go do a little research.
    And we miss having an enemy so we decided to pick Islam as a replacement. Dude’s an idiot. But he’ll have plenty of people buying it. Gotta go.

  2. It was a forum done by the Brookings institute, not the US gov’t.

    The threat from Islam isn’t anything new; it started seriously against the US when Iran took our people hostage.
