According to Egyptian opposition leader Mohamed El Baradei the idea that the Muslim Brotherhood, which gave birth to the terror organizations Hamas, al Qaeda and in the United States CAIR, is in no way an extremist organization and any thought in that direction is totally bogus.
It is no secret that Israel has a severe problem with getting its message across to the world, what is known in Hebrew as “hasbara” (literally, “explanation” but more commonly translated as “advocacy” or “public diplomacy”).
Before 1967, Israel was viewed by the Western world as a scrappy underdog, a nation whose very creation was a testimony to justice and perseverance, an island of democratic values in a sea of hostile Arab dictatorships, a real-life David surviving and thriving despite the constant threats and attacks of Goliath.
For decades, Saudi Arabia has sheltered the most brutal, anti-American and anti-Semitic dictators and strongmen that the Islamic world has to offer. Despite half a dozen successive U.S Administrations’ claims to the contrary the Saudis are not the benign trustworthy American allies they seek to be portrayed as. The rogue’s gallery of criminals that the House of Saud has given sanctuary and protection to should be clear evidence of that.
