Wow. Where to start on this one.
The Obama administration and Clinton must have approved visas for the Muslim Brotherhood. Why? It is the same Muslim Brotherhood we now learn runs torture facilities to violently dehumanize opponents of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.
What is their purpose in Brooklyn? Where else in the U.S. are these terrorists going? Are they visiting the White House? How many supporters do they have in the U.S.? How much money are they raising? And finally, why did the NYPD arrest an anti-Brotherhood protester? How long until Obama invites Hamas leaders to the U.S.?
The tension that has gripped Egypt in recent weeks over a draft constitution written by Islamists briefly erupted on a New York street on Saturday night, with the arrest of a protester who disrupted a discussion of the document by Essam El-Erian, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Note: Muslims regularly disrupt speakers on college campuses across the U.S. and are cops rarely intervene. But they are at the ready to protect the mosques and the Muslim Brotherhood?
Mr. Erian, who is also the vice president of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, told a standing-room-only crowd at the private Noor Islamic School in Brooklyn that the draft constitution would weaken the traditionally autocratic Egyptian presidency and strengthen Parliament.
During the discussion, Mr. Erian reassured Egyptian expatriates, who can vote on the draft in a referendum on Wednesday, that “it is not true when people say it is like the Koran and cannot be changed.”
Just as Mr. Erian argued that the many amendments to the United States Constitution showed that such legal frameworks can be changed, protesters began anti-Brotherhood chants, drawing an angry response from the group’s supporters in the room. Salma Abu El-Maged, an anti-Brotherhood activist living in New York, began the chants, screaming “liar” and “murderer” at Mr. Erian.
Chants “yeskot 7okm elmorshed”. Total chaos. People kicked out.
As others around her yelled, “Down with the rule of the Supreme Guide,” in reference to the Muslim Brotherhood’s top leader, Mohamed Badie, Ms. Maged was forcibly removed from the room by the police.
“Yasqut yasqut hokm el morshed!” NYPD pushing out anti-Islamist protesters http://t.co/dFV9Fz1V
NYPD pushed out protesters, many of the opposition walked out.
Kirsti Itameri, an independent journalist in Brooklyn, filmed the scuffle on her phone when she herself was roughed up by “a man my father’s age,” she said, who grabbed her by both wrists and violently shook her in an apparent attempt to stop her filming. The incident, which has been reported in the Egyptian news media, happened in front of a police officer, and Ms. Itameri filed a report against the man for harassment, she said.
#MuslimBrotherhood thugs in Brooklyn tonight http://t.co/pNNtklZM
Ms. Itameri posted video of the incident online, in which she could be heard screaming, “get your people under control and tell him not to touch me!”
There was also this tweet not in the Lede article:
Ms. Maged told The Lede in an a telephone interview on Monday that she was given a ticket for disorderly conduct and released.
When the talk concluded, Mr. Erian’s handlers rushed him offstage and out of the auditorium, leaving an agitated members of the crowd to argue among themselves. Angry debates spilled onto a sidewalk on Fourth Avenue, where the police were waiting to disperse the crowd.
Everyone is super emotional here right now…
Super intense conversations outside after the conference. People arguing aggressively…egyabroads very invested in the mother country.
I got a taste of the the deep hate between the two sides tonight and I really hate that Egypt has reached this point.
And unfortunately, America is now getting a taste of the tyranny, disruption and violence that Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood bring wherever they go. It’s going to get a lot worse in the U.S. and future generations of Americans – your children and theirs – will be left to fight this scourge.
It is the immigration, stupid. Or it was. It may be too late now.
