Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood today is celebrating the shocking recent news that they have infiltrated top levels of the U.S. government. Quite an accomplishment, considering the organization just assumed power in Egypt following a year of severe domestic problems and one of the greatest political upheavals in history. You’d think they would have more pressing problems on their hands, but apparently the Brotherhood is very good at multi-tasking.
The Brotherhood now reports that it is just as perplexed as the rest of the world about the news. (Well, the rest of the world minus Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) and four of her Republican House colleagues, who recently addressed letters to several inspectors general alleging Muslim Brotherhood influence in the Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and State departments and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.)
“I haven’t heard these rumors, but they strike me as ridiculous,” said Ahmed Al Nahhas, a longtime activist and leader in Alexandria, Egypt. “Surely the United States government selects its employees very carefully.”
Other members of the organization were just as surprised. “The Muslim Brotherhood can’t even penetrate the Egyptian government,” said Ibrahim Ali Iraqi.
The Muslim Brotherhood also reported that they have no idea who this Huma Abedin lady is. Abedin, an aide to Secretary Hillary Clinton and the wife of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY), was accused by Bachmann of being connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and helping to assert its influence over the U.S. government. Because if there are three things all radical Muslim women love, it’s Jewish U.S. congressman, Hillary Clinton, and sexting scandals. (Seriously, Michele, hasn’t this woman suffered enough already?)
