VIDEO: Muslim Candidate For Michigan Governor Openly Declared His Support for Muslim Brotherhood

Published

on

Abdulrahman Mohamed El-Sayed, a Muslim candidate for Governor in Michigan openly supported the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt during the uprising against Hosni Mubarak. El-Sayed is a Sharia compliant Muslim who openly defended the Muslim Brotherhood in his own words. The ensuing Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt — facilitated by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — led to disaster and to the Brotherhood’s removal in a popularly supported military coup.

In January of 2011, El-Sayed wrote for the Huffington Post entitled “Why The U.S. Should Support the Protesters in Egypt”:

“As an American, I ask you to support these freedom fighters…and as an Egyptian, I ask you to support them. If the Muslim Brotherhood were to take power, there are several reasons why the ensuing state would look nothing like Iran.

First, the Muslim Brotherhood is a Sunni organization — Sunni Islam is, by its nature, less hierarchical than the Shiite brand of the religion. Hence, the concept of a “supreme leader” or theocratic figurehead is improbable under the Muslim Brotherhood. Second, as it stands, the Muslim Brotherhood lacks a popular leader akin to the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran. Thus, the movement will not be able to consolidate power as readily in these turbulent times as their counterparts did in Iran, and will therefore have limited input in shaping legislative procedure (it is this vital input on procedure which ultimately created the Iranian “Islamic Republic” as we know it today, rather than a liberal democracy run by an Islamic party, a la Turkey). Third, the military is, and will remain for the time being Egypt’s principal powerbroker—it is safe to say that the military wouldn’t back a Muslim Brotherhood government without strong liberal democratic structures in place. Fourth, the Muslim Brotherhood has recently agreed to support a transition government under Nobel Laureate Mohammed ElBaradei, who is not affiliated with the movement in any way, signaling the party’s willingness to compromise. Others argue that Muslim Brotherhood control in Egypt would echo Hamas’s leadership in Gaza. This is foolish—attempting to draw inference about one Islamic party’s behavior in Egypt, the Middle East’s largest country with considerable economic potential, from another party’s behavior in Gaza, a territory harrowed by over 60 years of occupation, ignores the influence of the vastly differing contexts within which each group operates, and is therefore, unproductive.
Lastly, supporting the right for self-determination in Egypt might promote uprisings in other volatile countries in the region, some argue. I concede; this is true.

El-Sayed is a dual citizen of the United States and Egypt, where was he was calling on Americans to support former Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood leader, Mohammed Morsi.

Will the mainstream media ignore the fact that a supporter of Islamic Muslim Brotherhood terrorism is running for office?

UK Lockdowns: Round Three

PM Boris Johnson has announced a new national lockdown for England.

Published

on

England’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a new national lockdown for England, with citizens instructed to “stay at home” as they did during March’s first lockdown.

Mr. Johnson revealed the new lockdown in an eight-minute TV address on Monday evening, after being told that COVID-19 cases are rising rapidly in every part of the country due to the new strain of the coronavirus.

According to the address England will go back into full national coronavirus lockdown with schools closed and the public required to stay at home until at least mid-February.

“Now more than ever we must pull together,” he said, adding that we should “once again stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.”

The public are being asked to follow the new rules, which are replacing the tiered system that was employed this summer.

Across the whole country people must now stay at home apart from five exceptions:

  • for work, if people cannot work from home, such as those in the construction sector or key workers
  • to shop for necessities such as food or medicines
  • to exercise once per day at a local location. This can include with one other person from outside someone’s household or support/childcare bubble
  • to provide care or help to vulnerable people
  • to attend medical appointments or medical care, or to flee the threat of harm or violence.

All primary schools, secondary schools and colleges will move to online learning starting January 5th.

However, nurseries can remain open while childcare and support bubbles will stay in place.

The statement from 10 Downing Street was preceded by the announcement of a Scottish lockdown by Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon six hours earlier.

The House of Commons will be recalled from its current recess to sit on Wednesday, so MPs can hear a statement from the Prime Minister and to vote on the new lockdown restrictions.
