Barack Obama’s administration promotes backers of the Muslim Brotherhood and supported their “elected” puppet Mohammed Morsi after the Brotherhood said they would stay out of the political process. Now, Egypt bans Muslim Brotherhood all together.
From the Associated Press:
An Egyptian court has banned the Muslim Brotherhood group and ordered its assets confiscated in a dramatic escalation of a crackdown by the military-backed government against supporters of the ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.
The Brotherhood was outlawed for most of its 85 years in existence. But after the 2011 ouster of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, it was allowed to work openly, formed a political party and rose to power in a string of post-Mubarak elections. In March, it registered as a recognized non-governmental organization.
With Obama now focused on Syria and Iran, one can only wonder how bad he will screw it up? His handling of the Middle-East reminds me of what an old friend used to say about some of his troubled employees, “If they drew up a plan of how to screw up their lives, they couldn’t do a better job than they are.” Thanks Barack!
