Since the break in of the Arab Spring; the most transforming event in the Arab world history a year ago, people all over the western world, in the media, politicians, friends and enemies alike are asking what about the Muslim Brotherhood threat, what about the emerging of the Islamist, I can’t have a normal conversation about anything even sports without someone asking me, what about the MUSLIMS BROTHERHOOD , how are they going to treat woman and the peace treaty with Israeli. Equating the human right of Egyptian women to a political treaty with Israel that can be negotiated. Everywhere I go people asking me about the Muslim Brotherhood as if they just came back out of western medieval memories. Are they going to force women to wear Hijjab, incidentally, most of them already do, What about applying the Sharia in Egypt? Nobody is asking me about Sharia in Saudi Arabia. Last week, a local TV producer asked me “isn’t the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization?” and the TV host asked me about what I think of the Israeli Financial minster warning to the west quoting him live “everyone, man or woman in the west should be worried about the winning of the in the Egyptian election” he warned the west; again! What about the orthodoxy Jewish brotherhood, who are terrorizing the Palestine for years, grapping land, denying the inspiration of a whole nation. The Palestine nation whom according to the former house speaker and a presidential front runner are “Invented” people and “terrorists”.. ”, there was no Palestine as a state,” Mr Gingrich said. ”It was part of the Ottoman Empire. And I think that we’ve had an invented Palestinian people,” the scary part he is the smart one on the GOP ticket. Even a staunch supporter of Israel like Joe Lieberman didn’t agree with this twisted historical perspective of the history professor. And brought this response from Bradley Burston at Haaretz a leading Israel newspaper, ´ Mr. Speaker, if, for the sake of Jesus and the Resurrection, you want the territories to remain occupied forever, you and your Christian Zionist allies will have to do some homework before Inauguration Day”. When Obama was in Newt position three years ago, and dying for American Jewish votes, he salivated another historical blunder about Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Jewish votes seems to wipe out historical facts from the mind of American politicians. “ Don’t ask me about the Muslim Brotherhood no more, before you talk to me about the Christian Brotherhood, the evangelical Christian right, , who want to bring Jesus to Washington, and corporate America, Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos explained “Radical evangelical rights, think as if old Jesus was focusing on the wrong people; American new Jesus should be focusing on the rich and powerful; those are the one who are able to trickledown the faith! ” There will be no swastikas this time but seas of red, white and blue flags and Christian crosses. Why hate Islamic fundamentalism and not the Christian or Jewish Fundamentalism”, he added. Don’t ask me about Muslim brotherhood or Salafi no more, ask me about the Tea party and their Salafi way of thinking that are embraced by the republican party establishment. Don’t ask me about the MUSLIMS BROTHERHOOD sweeping the Arab world no more, ask me about the Islamophobia sweeping our nation post 9/11 era. Where Muslims are not even accepted as consumers, with another low from Lowe’s home improvement chain, whom they should improve their home bigotry chain, pondering to some Christian evangelical paranoia, and cancelling his ad camping from a TV show that dared to show Muslims as mainstream American. Don’t ask me about the MUSLIMS BROTHERHOOD no more and asked me about the Koch brothers-hood who are bankrolling the Salafi evangelical racist movement in this country and their agenda. Don’t ask me about the MUSLIMS BROTHERHOOD no more, … because no matter how wacky they look, or seem, no matter what they do and say they are still my brothers.
