Muslim Brotherhood moving ahead with US support in Somalia & Syria

The Muslim Brotherhood has received some US backing in Somalia according to the following report:

President Obama decided this week that the Muslim Brotherhood-linked regime ruling parts of Somalia out of the capital city Mogadishu is eligible to receive U.S. military aid and weapons, sending a memo to Secretary of State John Kerry announcing the new finding and laying the ground work for even more foreign entanglements in Africa. While the decision does not mean American taxpayers will begin sending arms immediately, Obama claimed his administration could legitimately provide military assistance to United Nations-backed Somali authorities under existing U.S. export and foreign aid statutes…

The Obama administration, meanwhile, formally recognized the Muslim Brotherhood-linked regime of Somali “President” Hassan Sheikh Mohamud in January — the first time a U.S. administration has officially recognized a Somali “government” since 1991.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama took the first step Monday toward providing US military assistance to Somali forces battling Islamist militants, after the easing of a UN arms embargo last month.

Obama signed a determination stating that having the legal capacity to offer defense equipment to Somalia was in the national interest of the United States and could promote peace and stability in East Africa…Since 2007, the United States has provided $133 million in security sector assistance to Somalia, a form of aid designed to help nations build structures to provide for their own security.

Who is Hassan Sheikh Mohamud?…

There are various ways that Somalia and US aid can be viewed.  The more official view from the US government is that it is supporting “moderate” regimes against terrorists.  Another view is that the Muslim Brotherhood, being less “extremist” than groups like Al Qaeda, has a better opportunity to implement an pan-Arabic confederation known as a caliphate, and hence will more likely assist in fulfilling biblical prophecies about the coming  King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43).

Notice also what someone else says about US involvement in Syria and elsewhere:

Almost two years ago, the New York Times found that “a small number of CIA officers” were secretly working with “a shadowy network of intermediaries” — including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar — to ship arms to the opposition. (New York Times, June 21, 2012)

It has now been confirmed that the CIA has sent large shipments of weapons to Syria via regional proxies since early 2012 at the latest…

Only the fear that they may be unable to control the opposition in Syria — which contains elements similar to al-Qaida — has kept U.S. military aid from being more overt…

More recent interventions in Libya, Afghanistan and Yemen have been more open and egregious.

The role of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Syrian rebel movement is not without controversy, but it is a major player:

Syrian opposition in disarray over Brotherhood role

As the best organised and most unified political faction on the rebel side, the Brotherhood has played a central part in the uprising to topple Mr Assad…

An independent political analyst in Damascus who closely monitors the coalition said he estimated 65 per cent of the bloc is loyal to the Brotherhood, far higher than the humble 10 per cent the group publicly claims.

“A major concern with the opposition is that everything is happening in the shadows, people are not always who they say they are, they do not openly declare their interests and backers,” the analyst said.

“You have people who say they are not allied with any faction but if you look closely, they have links to the Brotherhood. It might be exaggerating to say they are puppets, but there is some real sense of that, of the Brotherhood having proxies working for it,” he said.

Last month, the FSA issued a scathing public letter accusing the Muslim Brotherhood – ostensibly its allies – of jeopardising the goals of the revolt with its politicking and of trying to hijack the popular uprising.

In Syria, the Choice is Clear: Assad or Muslim Brotherhood/Al Qaeda

It’s not a choice that we have to make, but anyone backing the Sunni rebels, many of whom are actually foreign Jihadists, has to make it…

The Muslim Brotherhood’s takeover of the Syrian revolution was one of those open secrets that few “mainstream” outlets would discuss for fear that it would undermine support for the Sunni Holy War/Arab Spring.

The US government supports the rebel side in Syria and has called for the ouster of Syria’s President Assad.  Again, with whatever its reasoning, this will assist the objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a Sunni Muslim group that wants to establish an Islamic empire called a caliphate. When Egypt’s current President Morsi ran its official website, it had an article posted that said the following:

What is the Muslim Brotherhood?
The world’s largest and most influential Islamist movement. Founded in Egypt in 1928, the group was originally focused on ridding the country of corrupting secular influences brought by British colonial rule. Over the years, it established branches and affiliates in many countries to promote traditional Sunni Islamic morals, social justice, and the eradication of poverty and corruption. “The Islamic nation,” its charter states, “must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state”—ideally a re-established caliphate, stretching from Spain across the Middle East and Central Asia to Indonesia, to be governed according to Islamic sharia law.

The Muslim Brotherhood apparently wants as its top priority a pan-national Islamic caliphate ruled by an Imam. Many Muslims long for the rising up of a leader called the 12th Imam, often referred to as the Imam Mahdi. It will not end up with Spain if I understand certain aspects of Bible prophecy correctly, but the confederation of the final King of the South may go from around Western Sahara and/or Mauritania to Oman (with possible involvement and/or coordination with Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan and/or Indonesia).

Not everyone in the predominantly Islamic countries support the Muslim Brotherhood, and some have complained of US President Obama’s support for the group in Egypt (see Muslim Brotherhood taking steps against opposition in Egypt and now somewhat representing Syria).  Yet, the Muslim Brotherhood is gaining influence throughout the Islamic world, and especially in the predominantly Arabic nations.

This is consistent with biblical prophecies.  Notice that the Bible talks of a coming confederation of nations that are composed of peoples from North Africa and the Middle East:

40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. 41 He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. (Daniel 11:40-44, NKJV)

2 ‘Son of man, prophesy, and thou hast said: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Howl ye, ha! for the day!

3 For near [is] a day, near [is] a day to Jehovah! A day of clouds, the time of nations it is.

4 And come in hath a sword to Egypt, And there hath been great pain in Cush, In the falling of the wounded in Egypt, And they have taken its store, And broken down have been its foundations.

5 Cush, and Phut, and Lud, and all the mixture, and Chub, And the sons of the land of the covenant with them by sword do fall,

6 Thus said Jehovah: And — fallen have supporters of Egypt, And come down hath the arrogance of her strength, From Migdol to Syene, by sword they fall in her, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.

7 And they have been desolated in the midst of desolate lands, And its cities are in the midst of wasted cities.

8 And they have known that I [am] Jehovah, In My giving fire against Egypt, And broken have been all her helpers.

9 In that day go forth do messengers from before Me in ships, To trouble confident Cush, And there hath been great pain among them, As the day of Egypt, for lo, it hath come.  (Ezekiel 30:2-9, Young’s Literal Translation)

Notice that Egypt is mentioned by name in both Daniel 11 and Ezekiel 30, it will be prominent in the coming confederation. Since Syria is located in the Middle East, the above prophecies appear to be referring to a confederation of mainly Arabic nations that will include Syria. Hence, despite some issues, Syria will end up with some type of Islamic confederation–but one that will not be good for it or its people.  As far as Somalia, most of the Somalis speak Somali, which is a Cushitic language, with  Arabic being the second most commonly spoken language there.

Although several translations of Daniel 11:43 use the word “Ethiopians,” the word translated as “Ethiopians” is the plural of the word Kuwshiy, which according to Biblesoft’s New Exhaustive Strong’s Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary means descendants of Cush. Or in other words, people of dark color–and it is commonly translated as Cush or Cushite in many Old Testament passages–including those in Ezekiel 30. This would thus seem to possibly include the Somalis in the coming confederation.

A coming confederation of Islamic lands is something that the Muslim Brotherhood is hoping to bring to pass.  And, intentionally or otherwise, the US government is assisting that group.
