Egypt's Tahani al-Gebali
Constant chatter is coming from Egypt about an alleged connection between President Barack Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Egyptians say America's president is connected through his half-brother Malik.
The allegation picked up steam in Egypt and on the internet following recent comments from Tahani al-Gebali, Vice President of Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court.
I wanted to learn more, so I talked with CBN News contributor, author, Middle East analyst Raymond Ibrahim who has written a blog about it here on our CBN News web site.
If the allegation is true, it may explain a lot about current U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East.
Watch my interview for more on this breaking story!
And here is a translation of Ms. Gebali's key comments from her recent appearance on Egyptian television:
(Tahani): "...all these countries who are mobilizing the international community against Egypt are accused with documents and evidence from the Egyptian national security agencies, and it has to be known now. It is time to expose the playing cards."
"We have the proof about which countries spent money on this international organization (Muslim Brotherhood). where is Germany, England and France in this and where is the U.S.A.? What has been spent on the organization by Arabia in order to seize power?"
"What is going on with the investments by the international organization? What about the brother of President Obama, I mean, we are offering the American people a piece of information. His African half-brother is one of the architects of the investments of the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood. "
(The host): One second please. A revelation for the American people!! The half-brother of Obama in Africa??
(Tahani):Yes, he is one of the architects of the major investments of the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.
"If necessary, we have to alert our people who love peace. Peace loving people in the world don't support their administrations or presidents or their foreign minister or the government sponsoring terrorism and planting it in other countries and paying for it with their money. That is why (the Western countries)don’t want to put the leaders of the organization (The Muslim brotherhood) on trial."
"The pressure is to keep the organization in the political scene, without trial, and let them go."
