- ZAWAHIRI WAS PART OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.
- THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ASSASSINATED SADAT.
- THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ARE ISLAMISTS WHO WANT TO ENFORCE SHARIA

- APPEASEMENT IS LAYING DOWN AND THEN LEADING IT TO SOMEONE ELSE TO BITE.)
IF OBAMA WAS A CRYPTO-MUSLIM WHO WAS SECRETLY TRYING TO HELP IRAN AND THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, WOULD HE BE DOING ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY?
