Egypt Captures Muslim Brotherhood’s Leader As The Crackdown Continues

Scarab Beetle Hieroglyph Egyptian

Joshua Pundit: The Egyptian government bagged a major Brotherhood prize today, their 70-year-old supreme leader Mohammed Badie.

The old fascist was found hiding in an apartment in the Nasr City district of Cairo, near the Islamist Rabaa al-Adawiya Mosque not to far from the two Brotherhood strongholds the army and police cleared out after repeated attempts to evacuate them peacefully.

Badie, like most Islamist leaders made sure he wasn’t going to be ‘martyred’ along with the other dupes and arranged a safe haven, but was trapped behind the police and army lines and eventually was smoked out.

As I mentioned, the Egyptian army is using similar tactics to ones the French used to defeat an insurgency in Algiers in 1954 – sectioning off various sectors in Egypt cities to keep the Brotherhood from operating effectively, closing down notorious Brotherhood mosques, arresting known Brotherhood figures and blocking off and establishing control and policing strategic areas piece by piece while eradicating the Brotherhood’s facilities and membership.

It’s working even better for the Egyptians than it did for the French because the Egyptian army has the support of most of the populace.

The Brotherhood was always going to be crushed if they took on the army. They could probably have negotiated something in the early days with al-Sissi and the army that would have given them a voice in government, but they chose to inaugurate violence in the hopes of bringing President Obama and the west in to rescue them as he did the Islamists in Libya. After trying to threaten al-Sissi and failing utterly (and even worse for someone with the president’s colossal ego, being ignored)it appears, at least so far, that the president has chosen to limit his response to cutting off aid to Egypt. That’s a pretty small deal, in the face of the billions in support pledged to al-Sissi from the Saudis and the GCE countries, and new arms can probably be had if needed from the Russians and Chinese. All the president has done with his hissy fit is to deal us out.

The Brotherhood itself will continue to foment terrorism, especially against Christians, but with their top leadership in jail and their movement increasingly unpopular, they look like they’ve lost this gamble and lost badly.

The Egyptian government will likely ban the movement, their little franchise is Gaza is under lock and key by the army and Morsi, Badie and the rest are facing trials for treason. They’ve all been charged with collaboration with Hamas, and one item that may very well come out is President Obama’s secret $8 billion deal between the Obama administration and the Muslim Brotherhood to have Egypt annex a huge chunk of Sinai to Hamas as part of Palestinian territory. Khairat el Shater (number 2 of the Brotherhood), Morsi and Mohammed Badie, the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood reportedly signed on to the deal and are now all in custody, which could account for President Obama’s frantic attempts to get them freed.

A sitting president of the United States paying $8 billion in taxpayer funds to give more land to Hamasistan, a recognized terrorist organization according to U.S. law would definitely be problematic for this president.

The Brotherhood in Egypt is not likely to become completely extinct, but they’re going to be on life support for some time..unless President Obama brings in the American military. I don’t think he’s quite that stupid, but then again this president has never failed to surprise me any time I give him credit for elementary common sense.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
