It is not known whether Donilon, Smith, Rashad Hussein (Obama’s envoy to the 57-government Organization of Islamic Cooperation), and the other administration officials on hand congratulated bin Bayyah and the IUMS on recently welcoming Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh as a member of the organization. Yes, Hamas is still a terrorist organization. And yes, it is still a federal crime to promote terrorism — at least nominally. But when it comes to the Brotherhood, our president is obviously of a mind to let bygones be bygones, insha Allah.
Taking cues from the Brotherhood is working out well, wouldn’t you say? Iraq and Libya are imploding; the Obama-backed Islamic-supremacist regimes in Egypt and Turkey are brutally repressing authentic democratic revolts; the Taliban is poised to retake Afghanistan; and now, we’re off to Syria...If things go according to plan, Assad will be toppled and al Qaeda types will rule in Damascus. And that's a good idea because...?
Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
Update: Jonathan S. Tobin says:
If the likes of Bin Bayyah are welcome in the White House, it’s little wonder the president and his foreign policy team have been unable to put forward a coherent policy on dealing with the problems of the Middle East.My song for Bin Bayyah (the ditty he should have been sung in Washington):
Pack up all your jihadis,
Get rid of Hamas, please.
Bye Bin Bayyah.
MuBros are ambitious guys,
Viscous dudes; seditious lies.
Bye Bin Bayyah.
Infidels host him at their own peril.
He wants to make kafirs weak and sterile.
Obama is a big fat dud.
MuBros are out for blood.
Bin Bayyah, buh bye,
Bin Bayyah, buh bye.
Update: Obama's Muslim Brotherhood doctrine is insane
