The “Renounce Violence” Charade

Family Security Matters
As America’s relationship with its second best ally in the Middle East, Egypt, heads into transition, it is important for us to get clear about exactly what is and is not being determined. This is particularly critical as President Barack Obama seems to encourage the role of the Muslim Brotherhood so long as it “renounces violence.”
As written previously, Barack Obama needs to answer a critical question: Is the Muslim Brotherhood an enemy of the U.S.? If he answers in the affirmative, then all policies concerning the Brotherhood, foreign and more importantly domestic, need to be remade in the full light of public scrutiny. If he answers in the negative, he must be held to answer how, amidst endless voluminous evidence to the contrary, he arrives at such a position.
