    While Obama is intervening in our free enterprise system to fundamentally alter our capitalist society at home, he his intervening on behalf of radical Islamists around the world and endangering our national security. In his effort to reach out to America’s enemies, Obama has emboldened the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, orchestrated an Islamist takeover of Libya that is reverberating throughout North Africa, thrown Israel overboard, and has offered Vladimir Putin some “flexibility.”

    Concurrently, he is negotiating with the Taliban even while leaving our troops in the field to fight a tepid social work operation in Afghanistan. He is doing nothing to stem the “pink tide” of radicals and Islamists penetrating Latin America, and is not concerned about Hugo Chavez. Obama’s foreign policy vices are the most underreported aspects of his tenure as president.

    While there is not much Congress can do to alter the president’s wide latitude in pursuing wrongheaded foreign policy, they can cut off funds for his radical agenda. In his FY 2013 budget proposal, Obama asked for $770 million to fund the “Arab Spring” governments in the Middle East and North Africa. This is on top of the $2 billion annually that has already been promised to whatever unsavory government is put into power by the freedom-loving Egyptian people. Congress must ensure that not one penny of US aid is sent to governments supported by the Muslim Brotherhood or other radical Islamic interests.

    Unfortunately, Democrat and Republican appropriators in the Senate already approved Obama’s full request for aid to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government. In addition, they opened a new account with $1 billion allocated for the Arab Spring governments. The House bill does not contain the new Arab Spring funding, but it continues to allow money to flow to Egypt as long as the State Department can confirm that they have transitioned power to a democratically elected government. But what good is that if the democratically elected government is the Muslim Brotherhood? Moreover, both the House and Senate bill grant the Secretary of State waiver authority on national security grounds. We’ve seen that rodeo many times before with funding for the Palestinians.


    When the fight over the final funding measure for FY 2013 commences, most of the focus will be on domestic programs and Obamacare. However, we must not let foreign aid for the Muslim Brotherhood slip into a thousand page bill when nobody is looking. To that end, Congressman Joe Walsh is circulating a letter to House leadership requesting that all aid to Egypt be suspended as long as they fail to commit to upholding the Camp David Accords peace treaty with Israel. Whether there are members of the State Department who have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood or not, it is certainly clear that many of them sympathize with them. We certainly cannot leave these funding decisions up to these bureaucrats. The Republican House needs to act before we have Jimmy Carter and the Shah times ten. When they’re finished tripping over themselves to denounce Bachmann, they might want to refocus attention on Obama’s dangerous insouciance towards the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt. It’s not a sin to focus on non-economic issues for a day or two.

    Here is a copy of Congressman Walsh’s letter along with support from 34 other members. Ask your member to join the effort to cut off funding to the Muslim Brotherhood.

    I think you'll find it's US foreign policy, Israel mainly, that endangers US national security.
    All attacks on US interests have been as a direct result of US interventions in other countries.

    The US moaned for years about the 'unprovoked' embassy bombing in Beirut but likes to forget the US entered the conflict on the government side.
    When your government enters a war, you can hardly moan when someone attacks your troops.
    All attacks on US interests were a direct result of US attacks on others, the US installing a puppet government or US support for the murderous Israeli government.

    You just don't like to admit it.

    I love a challenge.

    Please cite an attack on the US or US interests that wasn't the result of US intervention in a foreign country (Not Pearl harbour in the US occupied land of Hawaii).

    What are you calling Intervention MR blame America? Osama named our "occupation" of Saudi Arabia as his Reason for 9/11. Only we were not Occupying Saudi, we were there at the Express request of the Government of Saudi For their Protection.

    If there is one thing I have learned about Radical Islamic Groups from watching them for 40 years now it's this. Even if you give in to every Demand they have, and right every Wrong they claim you are doing, they will simply invent another reason to attack you.

    It's the Idea of the Simple Minded far left that Radical Muslims only Hate us because of what we do. The Truth is Radical Muslims hate us, because they are RADICAL, and Believe in a very Radical Interpretation of the Koran. Which Tells them Infidels are the Enemy, To be converted or Killed, and nothing more.

    Even if we with Drew all Troops, Closed all the bases and kept our Navy Home, they would still Attack America and the West because we are not Muslim. Period.

    I assume your lack of ability to cite an attack that wasn't caused by US intervention is an admission there isn't one.

    All that blathering on about whatever fails to respond to my challenge.

    No waffling, cite an example or admit defeat.
