We should have a closer look at the Moslem Brotherhood.

(1) Its leaders have called for a Jihad in Syria against Syrian president Assad

(2) Breibart news June 12, 2013 has reported Hamas was involved in the prison break during the uprising against Mubarack

(3) Egyptian leaders in Cairo have recently called the United States and Israel Egypt's enemy after president Obama gave the Moslem Brotherhood 1.5 billion dollars in aid including jet fighters and tanks which one day will be used against Israel.

(4) The Fatah government in Judea & Samaria (the West Bank) is weak. Should Fatah's government fall and Hamas takes over the Moslem Brotherhood will have another ally along the Israeli border

(5) The Moslem Brotherhood has a deputy in Lebanon's government.

(6) Jordan king Abdullah lets the Moslem Brotherhood peacefully denounce the United States and Israel

(7) The Moslem Brotherhood is causing the government of Iraq many problems.

(8) President Obama actually prefered the Moslem Brotherhood over Mubarack's government which had peace with Israel.

(9) Israel's government former FM Danny Ayalon said Israel's government did not want western nations to arm Syrian Jihadist rebels

(10) The Egyptians, Hamas in Gaza, Palestinians in Judea and Samaria, Beduion tribes in Sinai, Palestians in Jordan, the Lebanese and the Iraqis tribes/nations have all been listed in the Psalms 83:1-18 prophecy as attacking Israel once Damascus is destroyed as another commentator on this site has mentioned.

The Moslem Brotherhood in Egypt is likely to send some fighters to Syria real soon. I listened to your talks about Syria where one side is winning then you support the losing side so the terrorists fight each other and not western interests. Your policy makes perfect sense. I just feel like if Assad feels like he is painted into a corner he might launch his missiles upon Israel deliberately causing his Fortress of Damascus to be destroyed. He won't take into account if his forces in Damascus are destroyed, the Sunni Arabs will move to wipe out his whole Alawite tribe, then rally against Israel in a war in which the power of the Sunni Arabs will be destroyed. The Moslem Brotherhood will cause the death of many Sunni Arabs but the Moslems embrace the culture of death while the Israelis embrace the culture of life.
