Perhaps common sense is still a viable option in war-ravaged Egypt, after all. That seems possible given reports that those responsible for the non-coup there are considering making Muslim Brotherhood extremists illegal.
As reported at the reference:
CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian authorities are considering disbanding the Muslim Brotherhood group, a government spokesman said Saturday, once again outlawing a group that held the pinnacle of government power just more than a month earlier.
The announcement comes after security forces broke up two sit-in protests this week by those calling for the reinstatement of President Mohammed Morsi, a Brotherhood leader deposed in a July 3 coup. The clashes killed more than 600 people that day and sparked protests and violence that killed 173 people Friday alone.
Cabinet spokesman Sherif Shawki said that Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi, who leads the military-backed government, assigned the Ministry of Social Solidarity to study the legal possibilities of dissolving the group. He didn't elaborate.
The Muslim Brotherhood group, founded in 1928, came to power a year ago when its Morsi was elected in the country's first free presidential elections. The election came after the overthrow of autocrat Hosni Mubarak in a popular uprising in 2011.
The fundamentalist group has been banned for most of its 80-year history and repeatedly subjected to crackdowns under Mubarak's rule. While sometimes tolerated and its leaders part of the political process, members regularly faced long bouts of imprisonment and arbitrary detentions.”
Meanwhile, back at Martha’s Vineyard, President Barack Obama maintains a full schedule of golfing, swimming, and denial concerning events on the Nile, while huddling with fellow Democrats to add 11 million invading Mexicans to the Democrat Party base through amnesty and other sleight of hand nonsense reminiscent of the manner by which the doomed ObamaCare mess was passed through Congress.
Just as the Egyptian people do not need to be burdened with the Muslim Brotherhood, so it is that bankrupt America does not need to add 11 million non-English speaking illegal aliens.
Just Say NO! to both the Muslim Brotherhood and the illegal Aliens from Mexico!
