If Barack Obama isn’t doing his level best to hand the Middle East over to the Muslim Brotherhood, it’d be difficult to make the opposite case. The policies and rhetoric of his administration – to include the arm known as the mainstream media – have had the effect of furthering the Brotherhood’s agenda from the very beginning.
In Egypt, Obama called on Hosni Mubarak to step down; in Libya, NATO forces helped Brotherhood elements overthrow Muammar Gadhafi; in Syria, all the rhetoric coming from the administration has been about defending the rebels, which consist of al-Qaeda and Hamas (Brotherhood).
As Syria continues to be the toughest Arab Spring nut to crack for the Brotherhood so far, the administration’s attention might be turning toward Jordan.
Via Ted Belman at Israpundit:
I have just received reliable information from a certain insider that a meeting was held two weeks ago in Turkey attended by the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood, Qatar and CIA. Allegedly, Israel’s Mosad sat in as an observer. The attendees discussed what they want to happen in Jordan when the King falls.
The MB was asked specifically whether it would uphold the peace treaty with Israel if it came to power and they said yes. Furthermore the MB offered to take in many Palestinians from Judea and Samaria.
It struck me that this is exactly what Mudar Zahran is intending to do should he come to power. The MB is obviously following his playbook.
From a different source I heard that Obama is putting financial pressure on Abdullah so that he will fall. Obama wants to replace him with the MB.
If true, it’s difficult to find it shocking that Obama would want the Brotherhood ruling Jordan.
