That’s not shocking news for anyone familiar with the Islamic practice of taqiyya; it’s what they do.
They lie and they’re good at it. But it’s not clear the State Department understands that.
It’s either that or they can’t get past their Leftist centered egos and recognize that Jihadists are committed to the end of Western Civilization not merely changing it like the rabid left yearns to do.
Which is likely why the State Department was miffed, briefly, when a brother flashed the MB gang sign in front of the State Department wall plaque on the day of the visit…
“The State Department continues to speak with Muslim Brothers on the assumption that Egyptian politics are unpredictable, and the Brotherhood still has some support in Egypt,” he said. “But when pro-Brotherhood delegations then post photos of themselves making pro-Brotherhood gestures in front of the State Department logo, it creates an embarrassment for the State Department.”
That’s not something one would expect to hear from a State Department spokesperson, not when you know they know about the not so distant past rejection of the MB by the Egyptian people or that, even more recently, the Arab Emirates declared them and CAIR, too, terrorist organizations.
As national security reporter and terrorism expert, Patrick Poole says in the Free Beacon article, “What this shows is that the widespread rejection of the Muslim Brotherhood across the Middle East, particularly the largest protests in recorded human history in Egypt on June 30, 2013, that led to Morsi’s ouster, is not recognized by the State Department and the Obama administration,”
Makes a person wonder just what the Obama administration hopes to achieve with it’s unyielding support of the Sunni muslim brotherhood while it caves to the Shiite Iranians nuclear demands and it’s boss kisses the right hand of Wahhabi Saud king.
