This is pretty amazing. King Abdullah of Jordan confirms what many of us have known was happening in the Middle East for some time now, that there is indeed a Muslim Brotherhood crescent rising over the Middle East. But we also know that most Americans are very asleep to what’s going on because they listen to the wrong people…like Obama, who’s helping fund this Islamic crescent. As far as they know, Egypt is a bastion of Democracy and Turkey is still a secular country.
In any event, watch this short clip from Jake Tapper’s new show and then read this excerpt of the interview with King Abdullah from the Atlantic as it’s very revealing (h/t: Walid Shoebat):
ATLANTIC – Though most of the gulf monarchs remain his allies—because they, too, fear the Muslim Brotherhood—the king’s expansive, moderate understanding of Islam has served to isolate him from the Arab world’s rising rulers. Tunisia is now ruled by Islamists. In Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, a longtime Jordanian ally, has been replaced by Mohamed Morsi, a Brotherhood leader. The king argues that a new, radical alliance is emerging—one that both complements and rivals the Iranian-led Shia crescent. “I see a Muslim Brotherhood crescent developing in Egypt and Turkey,” he told me. “The Arab Spring highlighted a new crescent in the process of development.”
Abdullah is wary of Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish prime minister, whose Justice and Development Party is, he believes, merely promoting a softer-edged version of Islamism. (“Erdogan once said that democracy for him is a bus ride,” Abdullah reports. “ ‘Once I get to my stop, I’m getting off.’ ”) He sees Erdogan as a more restrained and more savvy version of Mohamed Morsi, who set back Muslim Brotherhood’s cause in Egypt by making a premature play for absolute power. “Instead of the Turkish model, taking six or seven years—being an Erdogan—Morsi wanted to do it overnight,” the king said.
If the king is wary of Erdogan, he is decidedly unimpressed with Morsi, whom he recently met in Riyadh, the Saudi capital. The two men were discussing the role of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. “There is no depth there,” Abdullah told me. “I was trying to explain to him how to deal with Hamas, how to get the peace process moving, and he was like, ‘The Israelis will not move.’ I said, ‘Listen, whether the Israelis move or don’t move, it’s how we get Fatah and Hamas”—the two rival Palestinian factions—“together.” When Morsi remained fixated on the Israelis (“He’s like, ‘The Israelis, the Israelis’ ”), Abdullah said, he tried to reiterate the importance of sorting out “the mess” on the Palestinian side.
“There’s no depth to the guy,” he repeated.
Abduallah sees it even more clearly than we do because he’s right in the thick of it. He knows Erdogan is a liar and Morsi is nothing but a Muslim Brotherhood hack who is now running Egypt. And they all hate Israel!
The interesting thing is Walid Shoebat has been predicting this for a long time. Even at the end of January 2011, just as the Egyptian revolution was getting underway, Walid Shoebat predicted a Turkish-North African-Iranian alliance, which means Turkey and Egypt:
“And like the miniature Hezbollah-Hamas alliance against Israel, you will have a future Turkish-North Africa-Iranian alliance which will try to put the Islamic Caliphate “Humpty-Dumpty” back together again so they can dash in and “liberate” Jerusalem!”
How did Walid Shoebat know this would happen? In short, because he reads his Bible and understands it. He’s not a Psychic. And this is exactly what the King of Jordan is talking about, a Muslim Brotherhood Crescent.
As a side note, I got to spend a little time with Walid Shoebat a couple of weeks ago when he came to North Carolina. Fantastic guy.
