The lead article in Frontpage today by Jacob Laksin exposes in genteel but highly effective prose the prevarications of a spokesmen for the Muslim Brotherhood and the professor who invited him to snooker University of California students into thinking that the fountainhead of the terrorist jihad against the West is a peaceful, democratic organization. Professor Mark LeVine is an old hand at shilling for terrorist causes in the Middle East. He's too clever and devious to come out and say directly that he would like to see Hamas and Hizbaollah and Iran succeed in destroying the Jewish state and killing its non-Arab inhabitants, but by working overtime to legitimize the mother of all terrorist organizations, he is effectively furthering the same end.
In all fairness to LeVine, the Bush Administration which has capitulated to Palestinian terrorists, has also joined the pretense that the Muslim Brotherhood has changed its spots. It has changed its tactics of the moment for sure. (And what is surprising about that -- tactics are just that -- tactics.) Just as the murderer Arafat whose only desire was to push the Jews into the sea pretended for decdes that he was a man of peace, so the Muslim Brotherhood which assassinated Sadat, created Hamas and spawned al-Qaeda, now claims to be joining the political process. Well Hamas has already done that with no visible slackening of its murderous agendas (and no critical comments from the Muslim Brotherhood).
If the Muslim Brothers have changed as LeVine and Jew-hating, women and gay-hating Brotherhood spokesman claim, let them condemn the offspring Hamas and their bloody works; let them repudiate the Hitler-worship of their founder Hassan al-Banna and their next most honored member Haj Amin al-Husseni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the godfather of Palestinian nationalism, revered by all Palestinians to this day. Al-Husseni, for those with shorter memories than the Palestinians, spent WWII in Berlin recruiting Arabs for Hitler (of which there were plenty) and planning his own Auschwitz in the Middle East to deal with the Jewish problem. When they're done doing that, let them officially renounce their 80 years of Jew-hating and gentile-hating and theocratic ambitions.
But of course this isn't going to happen, because the Muslim Brotherhood is the same organization it always was; it has just put on a new mask. Like Hitler when he went to Munich, like Stalin when he embraced the Popular Front and joined the democratic parties of the left, the Muslim Brothers are going to try to achieve their evil ends by putting on sheep's clothing and exploiting the credulity of the West. They will be aided of course by a fifth column of anti-capitalist, anti-freedom, anti-American leftists, like the professors from three UC Irvine departments who invited their propagandist to strut his stuff.
