The Egyptian Brotherhood goes to Washington
Spring has arrived in Washington D.C. And a sure sign of the changing seasons in America's capital is the annual parade of Islamist lobbyists, who come in March and April to the heart of Western democracy to advocate, under the guise of human rights, for Islamist causes and to misrepresent the beliefs held by ordinary Muslims.
Why are politicians, human rights organizations and
media outlets offering their support and time to these Islamist activists,
given the violence and oppression that swept through Egypt under Morsi's rule?
Admittedly, the involvement of Representative Tom Malinowski is not
particularly surprising. Malinowski was a vocal critic of
plans to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, and
has condemned Trump's
meeting with Sisi.
