While the Islamic revolution in Egypt may not be televised, apparently Senator John Kerry (D-MA) thinks American taxpayers should help fund Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood as they democratically impose Shariah law. Steve Emerson at the Investigative Project on Terrorism has the report:
"On Friday, Senator Kerry told Egypt's interim Prime Minister that the U.S. believed the elections were characterized by transparence and integrity, despite local confusion during three separate rounds of voting. He added that America was prepared to provide assistance to prop up the Egyptian government during the transition from military rule to democracy.
"On Saturday, he called for a major IMF cash infusion to keep Egypt's fledgling democracy alive, and stressed the need to aid Egypt's flailing economy. He also stated that the FJP's electoral success was not surprising and he pressed the largely secular military to respect the elections' outcome. It was the third time that an American official has met with the FJP in as many months."
Andy McCarthy at the National Review Online explains how generous President Obama and Senator Kerry are willing to be with our money:
"The United States, though over $15 trillion in debt, is the leading contributor-nation to the IMF, providing close to a fifth of its funding. That is about three times as much as second-place Japan, more than four times as much as China, more than six times as much as the leading Islamist country (Saudi Arabia), and more than the combined contributions of the three top European donors — Germany, Britain and France. (See Wikipedia Table, here.) Consequently, a cash infusion by the IMF to the Brotherhood-led Egyptian government would be a redistribution of wealth from American taxpayers to Islamists whose goal is to conquer American taxpayers — assuming, of course, there is any money left in the IMF after the Obama administration gets done using it as the device through which tapped out American taxpayers bail out, at least temporarily, Europe’s collapsing experiment in trans-continental socialism."
