In this video Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) asks National Intelligence Director James Clapper about the
Muslim Brotherhood and the threat of their goal to institute Shariah Law – their professed ideology – and to force people to live under that ideology. Clapper says the Muslim Brother is “largely secular,” which is outrageously untrue. The Muslim Brotherhood are hard-core followers of Shariah, if the law allows them that insanity. They cannot adhere to Islam and Shariah Law and be secular. See the video below.
Update: Clapper’s public Affairs person gave the following explanation for the Clapper’s mega-gaffe:
“To clarify Director Clapper’s Point – in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood makes efforts to work through a political system that has been, under Mubarak’s rule, one that is largely secular in it’s orientations – he is well aware that the Muslim Brotherhood is not a secular organization.”
The real clarification is that the Muslim Brotherhood is banned throughout Egypt. In 1948 they assassinated Egypt’s Prime Minister in 1948. The ban has been in effect since. THEN, Barack Obama met with the Muslim Brotherhood when he was in Egypt, giving them legitimacy in the eyes of many.
“The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’…is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam,” Clapper said. “They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera…In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally.”
Note that Clapper says the Muslim Brotherhood is “heterogenous,” but there is one thing to know, everyone in the Muslim Brotherhood is Muslim and adhering to Islamic law. “Heterogenous,” while it means different groups, doesn’t work here. Yes, the Brotherhood is located around the world, but they all have the same goal – whether they are Indonesians in the Brotherhood, or American Muslims in the Brotherhood.
Recently, Clapper and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano were interviewed by Diane Sawyer. The huge terrorist bust in the UK had just gone down. Clapper knew nothing about it, which was jaw dropping to Sawyer. Napolitano later excused Clapper’s ignorance by saying she “knew” and Clapper didn’t have the need to know, because he was working on the START Treaty for Obama. He didn’t have the need to know.
One more note: Rep. Sue Myrick is one of the few extremely qualified to speak about Islam and jihad. She has made it her business to know the facts. She serves on the House Permannent Select Committee on Intelligence, and she is founder of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus. She has continually, publicly called attention to the unindicted co-conspirators in the Holyland Foundation, and along with Senator Tom Coburn has pointed out that we granted non-profit status to CAIR – an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holyland Foundation!
