Storm Tack Appeasement: CBS Fawns Over the Muslim Brotherhood

From The Gathering Storm

Good little dhimmis CBS is. In its puff piece, CBS chides the White House for it’s ignorance of all the good the Muslim Brotherhood (also known as the Ikhwan) is doing in the world - WH On Wrong Side Of Muslim Brotherhood.

Kemal Helbawy is a founding member of the Muslim Association of Britain and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian-based Islamist movement with chapters throughout the Islamic world, including Hamas in the Palestinian territories. It comprises the largest opposition bloc in the Egyptian parliament, with eighty-eight seats, and it administers a network of social services that is far more efficient and responsive than those provided by the state. Brotherhood leaders have been at the vanguard of Egypt's grassroots push for political reform, consistent with the Bush Administration's policy of democratizing the Middle East.

Of course if they would just visit the Muslim Brotherhood web site they will find the following objectives of the Brotherhood.

1- Building the Muslim individual: brother or sister with a strong body, high manners, cultured thought, ability to earn, strong faith, correct worship, conscious of time, of benefit to others, organized, and self-struggling character

2- Building the Muslim family: choosing a good wife (husband), educating children Islamicaly, and inviting other families.

3- Building the Muslim society (thru building individuals and families) and addressing the problems of the society realistically.

4- Building the Muslim state.

5- Building the Khilafa (basically a shape of unity between the Islamic states).

6- Mastering the world with Islam.

Oops/ CBS must have missed number 6. And of course this motto of the Muslim Brotherhood must have escaped t heir attention.

"Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
If the reporters of the 1930s were around they would quickly note all the ‘good’ that the Nazis had done for the German people before they led their country to national suicide.

CBS – post this on every reporter’s terminal. “Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”

This attack on CBS is based on a misunderstanding. CBS simply used editorial material from the "The Nation" on its opinion page. You can't attack a newspaper for reprinting something on their opinion page. Please avoid making this type of mistake in the future. It just makes us look stupid.
