Guess Who The White House Invited Over For a Chat: A Terrorist

Nadene Goldfoot
Seems as if our president wants to know the new Egyptian President, Mohamed Morsi  a little better, so has invited some of his retinue to the White House for a chat in September.  This included Hani Nour Eldin, new member of the Egyptian parliament who was part of a delegation of Egyptian parliamentarians.  Eldin was hosted as part of a cross-section of Egyptians seeking to peacefully shape Egypt's future.  

The problem is that Eldin has been a member of a banned Egyptian militant group, a foreign terrorist organization called Gama'a al-Islamiya.   Congress was not told that the USA would give him a visa to visit first, and yet Homeland Security went ahead and saw to it that he could enter and assured the country that Eldin was no security threat.  Evidently this broke a federal law in order to host Eldin in Washington.  Protocal was not followed in this case, which is a little unnerving.  The law says that it is a felony to assist members of specially designated terrorist organizations.  So our very law-makers get to break the very law they made.

The biggest problem as I see it in hosting Eldin is how the terrorists can take it.  They evidently will see their terrorism as pride and the cause of their attaining recognition from the White House.  It gives them power.  They will think that the White House is kow-towing to them and that force is what it takes to get their way.

The Egyptian president himself is a little unnerving as well, but our President means to change that.  Obama has stated that Morsi is a moderate, but how can he think this when he is the candidate for the Muslim Brotherhood?   One only has to read their charter to see what their goals are.  They have not been friendly towards the United States, or even to Egypt, for that matter.  They had been outlawed by Sadat, the Egyptian president who was later assassinated by them in 1981.

Morsi is friends with Omar Abed-Rahman, known as the "blind sheikh, who is the  leader of Gama'a al-Islamiya-the Islamic Group,  and would probably like to include him in his new government.  His group  murdered Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York in 1990.  He was the well-known jihadist in New Jersey who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.  His group was also the planners of the November 1997 Luxor massacre where 58 tourists and 4 Egyptians were killed.  Rahman and his group plotted the assassination of Mubarak when he was actively the president of Egypt.  It was also found that this very group intended to bomb New York landmarks including the Lincoln and Holland tunnels and the UN headquarters.  

Rahman put out the fatwa allowing Sadat to be murdered because he had signed the peace treaty with Israel.  The group is listed by the State Department as a specially designated terrorist organization.  He was convicted for the 1993 bombing and angry enough about it to issue another fatwa calling for jihad against the US.  After 9/11's attacks, Osama bin Laden cited Rahman's fatwa as the religious justification for his actions.  

Morsi, the new Egyptian president called for Rahman's release.  What his reasoning could have been must have been a beaut.  He called for this during his inauguration ceremony,  which shows that he was more interested in winning than in being friends with the USA.  Not to worry, though.  Obama will change all that.  However, Rahman is in a North Carolina prison for seditious conspiracy.  Actually, he's in the Butner Medical Center section which is a part of this federal prison.

Morsi is not a friend of Jews or of Israel.  Mohammed Morsi told supporters earlier this year at a campaign event, “Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem!”
