RUSH: Tom in Mishawaka, Indiana. It’s great to have you, sir, on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: I’m excited. I have something here that I don’t think you might be aware of.
RUSH: Ah, ah, ah, a very dangerous thing to say. You think you’ve got something I might not be aware of?
CALLER: I do.
RUSH: Okay, try me.
CALLER: And don’t fight me on this.
CALLER: Okay, this is about our buddy who has done it again. He has gone and praised the Islamist takeover. It says here, he congratulated Egypt’s president-elect Mohammed Morsi —
RUSH: Morsi, that’s right.
CALLER: — and that country’s presidential election, call it a milestone in the country’s transition to democracy.
RUSH: It’s even more hideous than you know. This is the new president of Egypt. He’s from the Brotherhood. It was a military coup, per se, and if you remember, the Arab Spring was characterized as a breakout of democracy, freedom, all that wonderful stuff. And getting rid of Mubarak and that’s what the Arab Spring was, was gonna happen. Now what’s happened is that a Sharia Islamist has won the election in Egypt, no democracy, he’s gonna follow the course that has taken place in Turkey over the last ten years. You can almost say he’s gonna follow the Obama course.
The prime minister in Turkey is an Islamic supremacist by the name of Erdogan, and it’s taken him ten years of gradualism to return Turkey to the Islamist camp. Basically he has perverted, subverted all of the intentions of a predecessor by the name of Ataturk. Ataturk wanted a moderate regime that was not Islamist or Sharia in nature. And Obama did call the guy and congratulate him. Obama called the Brotherhood guy and congratulated him.
Now, there’s a step here that everybody is missing. My buddy Andy McCarthy had a story at The Corner at National Review today. “Obama Administration: ‘Imperative’ that Egyptian Military Hand Over Power to Islamic Supremacist President.” Obama and Hillary are demanding now that the Egyptian military, which was running the country, hand over power to this elected president, to the Muslim Brotherhood guy. Obama and Hillary are demanding that everybody get out of the way for the Muslim Brotherhood guy. It’s a myth. It isn’t gonna help democracy. The Muslim Brotherhood’s not about democracy. They’re about Sharia. This is about taking Egypt, as I was just saying, in the direction of Turkey.
Look, I have to take a break here. I’m really up against it on time. This is a complex thing but we try to make it understandable. I’ll give it a shot when we come back.
RUSH: Look, this election in Egypt. I don’t have the time to give you everything about this right now. All you need to know is, Mohammed Morsi (this according to Russia Today), the guy that’s the president now of Egypt, told the students at Cairo University, “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal.” That’s the new president of Egypt, and that’s who Obama called to congratulate. Now, there’s a lot more to this regarding the military and this guy ending up in power and what the objective is Egypt is.
But there’s not enough time to delve into it. I’m gonna put this at the top of everything tomorrow, and it may not be the first thing depending on what else happens, but I will get to it. I don’t want to leave you hanging but I must. I’ll explain this in greater detail, because there’s a background next to understand what Hillary and Obama are doing here, in insisting that the military hand over power to the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt. Obama and Hillary are telling the military: Surrender power to the Brotherhood!
Our official government position is the Brotherhood runs the place.
That’s who we’re gonna endorse.
And we’re telling the Egyptian military that runs the country: Surrender.
But there’s background to it that I want to delve into when I have more time.
RUSH: If the Mubarak candidate had won in Egypt, you can be very certain Obama and Hillary would not be demanding that the Muslim Brotherhood back down. And they wouldn’t be demanding that the military back down if the Mubarak candidate had won. But now that the Brotherhood guy’s the president, the military’s supposed to stand down.
