People can call the Muslim Brotherhood and their front groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Islamic Society of North America and others as “harmless” and “peaceful” all they want. However, the reality is quite different. Following a meeting with the Obama State Department, the Muslim Brotherhood declared an open jihad in Egypt.
The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders concerning their opposition to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. One of those delegates, Waleed Sharaby posed for a picture, which he posted on his Facebook page. Note the infamous four finger R4BIA he flashes for the camera, the same hand sign put up by Obama’s former Homeland Security advisor Mohamed Elibiary.
Adam Kredo at the Washington Free Beacon reports:
The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.
Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.
The State Department meeting was attended by a deputy assistant secretary for democracy, human rights, and labor and other State Department officials.
