Taqiyya? State Dept. admits lying about meeting with Muslim Brotherhood
by Michele Hickford, Editor-in-Chief on February 4, 2015 | Allen B West
As you may recall, we reported last week about a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood leaders meeting at the U.S. State Department to discuss their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt. Well, of course they oppose him – he had the nerve to call them a “terrorist organization.” Silly al-Sisi!
After all, just because two days after that meeting the Muslim Brotherhood issued a statement calling for jihad and two days after THAT conducted a major terror attack in the Sinai region killing at least 25 doesn’t make them a terrorist organization. Of course not.
And that jihad statement? Fuhgeddaboudit:
“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom.”
Then State went on to lie about the circumstances of the meeting by pointing a finger at University funding. Nope, that wasn’t the case. So it makes you wonder how much they have to lie about something they don’t believe is a problem?
As the Free Beacon writes, “The State Department admitted on Monday that it misled reporters about a recent delegation of Muslim Brotherhood leaders and allies who were hosted for a meeting with officials at Foggy Bottom.”
This just reminds me of the story Alice in Wonderland or someone falling through the looking glass. To paraphrase former Secretary Hillary, their story “requires the willing suspension of disbelief.” Of course they cannot be honest with us, it’s the first rule of their convoluted agenda. But if we try to expect from them what they are clearly not going to provide, then who is the real dupe?
