Obama Demands Egypt Release Jailed Members of Muslim Brotherhood

Obama’s Ambassador to Egypt is siding with Islamist terrorists in the unrest in that ancient country. Ambassador Ann Patterson has demanded that the Egyptians release all the Muslim brotherhood terrorists they’ve imprisoned during this time of strife.

Isn’t it just like the Obama administration to side with the extremist Islamists?

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch has the scoop about Obama’s administration:

Yesterday El Fagr reported that, during their most recent phone conversation, U.S. ambassador Anne Patterson demanded that Egyptian General Sisi release all Muslim Brotherhood members currently being held for questioning: “And when Sisi rejected this order, the American ambassador began threatening him that Egypt will turn into another Syria and live through a civil war, to which Sisi responded violently: ‘Neither you nor your country can overcome Egypt and its people.’”

Moreover, the day before the Salafi party withdrew from negotiations with the new Egyptian government, Al Nahar reported that Patterson had “incited them [the Nour Party, the Salafi party] to tamper with the political scene and the road map and to threaten to withdraw from political participation if Dr. Muhammad Baradei becomes elected as Prime Minister…”

Apparently, these are the “many forms of pressure” that Patterson earlier assured Hishan Qandil the U.S. would use to reinstate the Brotherhood.

Obama doesn’t seem to be able to make up his mind about Egypt… or anywhere else in the Middle East, for that matter.

On second thought, there is one thing that Obama does seem sure of in the Mid East. He thinks Israel is our enemy. Take his next possible UN Ambassador who wants Israel destroyed and says US Is like Nazi Germany.

    Don’t the dems say that we shouldn’t be running around telling other countries what to do?
    I thought that that was one of the reasons why Obama went on his apology tour.

    • jim_m

      The dems don’t have any problem telling people to give in to fascists or telling Jews that they should be dead.

    • GarandFan

      Evidently that’s another ‘saying’ with an expiration date.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    Obama picks foreign winners like he picks ”green energy” winners – cronies.

    Well, since we’re supposed to be about “human rights” and “democracy” and all, and these MB guys did nothing but be part of an elected government, not “terrorists” as Warner lies, it would be kind of hypocritical to cheer them being locked up by a military dictatorship.

    All Morsi did was get elected president of Egypt by a majority of Egyptian voters. A USC-trained engineering PhD. He’s locked up now.

    Of course, “money talks, bullshit walks,” and the USA is still funding the Egyptian military despite a law that says your tax dollars are not supposed to go to a military that performs a coup d’etat. So Obama “demanding” the release of Morsi and the others is just bullshit, and hypocritical anyways.

    Get your head out of your ass.

      Well that settles it. We all know that anyone with a college degree could never be a terrorist (cough…Bill Ayers…cough).

      IT’s nice to see you coming out and defending your islamist masters. obama is not being hypocritical. He is actually being very consistent in his defense of islamism.

      • Commander_Chico

        I am in favor of electoral democracy.

        Are you in favor of military dictatorships?

        • jim_m

          The MB had abandoned anything resembling democracy and was using their position to destroy that democracy. So when Hitler dismantled the democracy in prewar Germany you would have supported that because he was elected?

          • Commander_Chico

            Hitler!! I guess you could say that about any elected leader “Well, Hitler was elected, just like Cameron, so that proves it . . . “

            Lots of opinion there, no facts. The military regime has jailed a lot of journalists since seizing power, many more than Morsi’s government ever detained briefly. They’ve done more to suppress free speech than the MB government ever did.

            Morsi was elected by a majority of Egyptians. He didn’t do anything extreme while in office. Why is he a prisoner now?

            So what you’re saying is, the military had to destroy democracy in order to save it?

            One thing always is, you’re a reliable parrot of neocon propaganda.

          • Just as our soi disant cognoscenti is a reliable parrot of progtard insanity.

          • jim_m

            Idiot. Your premise was that because the MB was elected that we should (and the people of Egypt should) tolerate whatever the MB decides to do. The fact was that if they did so tolerate there would not have been any elections for the foreseeable future. Thus you are demanding that we allow democracy to be destroyed in the name of preserving democracy.

            The regime has jailed MB associated journalists. That’s a big difference that you conveniently overlook. Why not just say that the new government has jailed MB propagandists. There is no difference.

            There was no democracy with the MB therefore there was nothing to destroy but the fascist government you support.

            And you are a reliable supporter of any fascist regime. Period. If you like it so much go move there.

          • Commander_Chico

            As usual, you resort to personal vituperation but cannot marshal a single fact in favor of your argument.

          • jim_m

            As usual you completely miss the point and when I try to explain it and point out what an ass you are you end up missing both points.

            And the fact is that the new government has jailed MB associated journalists. Did you miss that FACT that I pointed out? Jeez you’re dumb.

          • Commander_Chico

            Yeah, you say it as if it’s OK to throw journalists who did nothing but write in favor of the party that won the election in jail with no charges. Because they’re Muslims. As was said in Plan Nine from Outer Space – “That proves it!”

            Trying to explain a higher-order political principle like the inviolable right to free speech or electoral self-determination to you is like performing the Piaget experiment with water glasses and a two-year old. There is just no way you can convince the two year old that the wide short glass has more water than the tall skinny one.

            When thousands of people protested Morsi, did he send the police and army to shoot the protesters, as Mubarak did? No, the protests continued. Was there a round-up of the organizers? No. Were they allowed to publish their opinions in the Egyptian press? Yes, they were.

            Is the reverse true? No

            The MB government may have been incompetent, but they weren’t particularly oppressive, compared to Mubarak or the current military regime.

          • MB/Cognoscenti “democracy”: One MAN, one vote, one TIME.

          • Commander_Chico

            Sez the other parrot of neocon propaganda. So they couldn’t wait until it was like, time for elections?

          • So much for the consent of the Governed amongst the soi disant cognoscenti.

          • Commander_Chico

            So if 100,000 or more people show up for a demonstration, the military should overthrow an elected government?

            Heck, that would happen all the time.

            Elections are a much more reliable index of the “consent of the governed.” Wasn’t that the point of those words?

            C’mon, put some thought into those words, Rodney. Weak.

          • How about those 100% voter turnouts in the former Soviet Union!

            That’s the soi dissant cognoscenti way!

          • Commander_Chico

            We had Hitler and now we have Stalin. They both had elections, and that proves elections are meaningless. Weak again.

            Morsi was elected with 51.8% of the vote.

          • Both dictators you name were creatures of the left, and the MB were supporters of the Nazi’s.

            One MAN, one vote, ONE time. The preferred method electoral method of cognoscenti approved dictators.

    • Engy Bahaa

      It seems that u r one of the sheeps ( MB ) the muslim brotherhoods r terrorists what about throwing the anti morso fr building …. killing innocents in tahrir square!! Long live tje egyptian army and thee egyptian revolution.

  • Par4Course

    Since Obama, no one pays attention to what the US “demands.” This Administration has been demanding that Assad step down for a couple years but on Sunday UK Prime Minister David Cameron admitted that the Syrian president has strengthened his position in recent months. Unless backed up by something tangible, our government’s support or condemnation means nothing.

  • Nagia Sammakia

    The Muslim Brotherhood are terrorists and killed some Egyptian soldiers last week. They are saying they’re demonstrators, but the are paid to eat and drink and be merry. One of the protestors said I hope they don’t release Morsi, because we can get free food.

  • Nagia Sammakia

    If Obama loves them so much and their corrupt regime he should take them back to USA. They took billions from the US for their own bellies and the Egyptian people starved. They built a Muslim Brotherhood building worth 25 million and couldn’t help with food, water shortage or electricity.

  • Is Samantha Power a man? Who knows these days? The US has sold out to the reprobate minds of the Regime, what a shame.
