Trust no Muslim Brotherhood

Reader comment on item: Why Revoke Tariq Ramadan's U.S. Visa?

Submitted by Nonie Darwish (United States), Aug 28, 2004 at 00:39

I was born and raised in Egypt and I know how subversive and dangerous the Muslim Brotherhood can be. It is simply a terrorist organization. Just its name can scare many Egyptians. America should never shy from rejecting visas to any suspicious Muslim fanatic regardless of how Westernized he might appear.

Why would our State Department welcome suspicious figures who fled their countries of origin for being subversive? It is time for the State Department to realize that not everything can be resolved with diplomacy. The Egyptian "Muslim Brotherhood" has caused much subversion, assassinations and turmoil in Egypt and exported these means to many other Muslim countries and Europe. Dangerous figures that do not want to call Bin Laden a terrorist and a murderer should never be welcomed in America. Muslim terrorist supporters and sympathizers come in many different shapes and forms and many have learned a few tricks that might appeal to certain segments of Western society. Many have lived with Western freedoms and learned to demand their freedom of speech, something they never practiced and actually have participated in oppressing in their own countries.

When will our State Department face the fact that our war against terror will NOT be resolved with diplomacy? Diplomacy might be a side help in our war against terror, but nothing other than our military will win us that war. That is the sad but true fact and reality of the enemy with which we are dealing.

Mr. Ramadan having been born and raised in the West, does not make him loyal to Western culture, but makes him an authority on how to manipulate it to his objectives of conquering the West to Islam. The way members of the Muslim Brotherhood bring up their kids leaves them not much choice but to support the Muslim Brotherhood main principles. They are done destroying the Middle East culture with their hate and extremism and are now coming to give the West the same treatment, but with a gentler appearance. American academics who invite them to poison the minds of our youth are extremely negligent by doing that. Do these Americans really think that these individualsreally love the American way of life? Make no mistake - these figures are here on a mission and it is NOT to please the leftists in America. They are using our naïve anti-American left for their hidden agenda.

American universities and youth do not need to learn anything from such subversive figures and it does not matter how many PhD's they have. Many of them are already teaching hate on our campuses with an Anti-American twist. The PR campaign by Saudi Arabia in the US is not just to reform its image, but it has an Anti-American tone. Welcoming such people in our open society is simply naive to say the least and committing suicide at worst. Haven't we had enough after giving visas to dangerous figures such as Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahaman, Muhammad Attah and others? Mr. Ramadan might have adopted a more clever and gentler approach for the same goal of Jihad in the West. He should never be allowed in America.
