**Posted by Phineas What’s next, lambs lying down with lions? Obama embracing the writings of Thomas Sowell? While Egypt is a land rife with antisemitism (for example), it seems many Egyptians have found someone to hate even more than the Israelis — Hamas: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi has thus far turned down appeals from […]

Posted by: Phineas on June 2, 2013 at 2:26 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas The idea seems insane — Egypt participating in the assault on our consulate, when they desperately need outside help to keep their economy (barely) functioning? Sounds like the stuff of conspiracy theories, and Egyptian society thrives on such, but journalist Cynthia Farahat presents enough interesting facts to make one go “hmmmm:” The terrorist attack […]


Obama administration arms Syrian Muslim Brotherhood?

**Posted by Phineas I recommend reading all of Barry Rubin’s article on the factions in Syria, information that’s becoming more relevant as the civil war there seems to be entering its endgame as the battle for Damascus begins.

**Posted by Phineas Maybe, but the web site of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president and that of the preacher himself are doing their best to scrub the news from their sites. Via Raymond Ibrahim, behold another consequence of Obama “Smart Power” diplomacy in Egypt: Wagdi Ghoneim, the Islamic cleric whose many terrorist-connections and activities got him […]

**Posted by Phineas The Arab Spring is turning into a horror movie: Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) has appealed to the Islamist-dominated parliament not to approve two controversial laws on the minimum age of marriage and allowing a husband to have sex with his dead wife within six hours of her death according to […]


(Video) The Grand Jihad

Posted by: Phineas on February 3, 2012 at 1:22 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas Encounter Books recently published “The Grand Jihad: how Islam and the Left sabotage America,” by former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy. It’s a book I highly recommend as a study not of the threat of terrorism, per se, but of the assault on the Western liberal tradition of tolerant, pluralist politics. It is […]

Friends and enemies: Muslim Brotherhood edition

Posted by: Phineas on May 4, 2011 at 3:18 pm » 5 Comments

**Posted by Phineas In this episode, we learn to learn to tell friends from enemies by seeing what they say to each other in their own language. Remember when our Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, said this about the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt? At a House Intelligence Committee hearing earlier in the day, Rep. […]
