Stunningly Clear and Direct Remarks by President Trump Toward Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood…

Perhaps the least media emphasized -yet most important- statement from President Trump today was the clarity behind the President calling out the government of Qatar for being a state financier of terrorism.  Stunningly clear-eyed.

Many people have contemplated whether President Trump would identify The Muslim Brotherhood as an officially recognized Terrorist organization.  Because of the political nature of The Brotherhood, and the Machiavellian face they project toward majority Muslim nations, there is a valid argument on both sides of such a consideration.

However, the large and previously unspoken, albeit transparently obvious, truth is that Qatar has always been the primary financier of The Muslim Brotherhood.  Today, in the Rose Garden, in front of an international audience, in the clearest possible terms, President Trump said exactly that:

“[…]  I have just returned from a historic trip to Europe and the Middle East, where I worked to strengthen our alliances, forge new friendships, and unite all civilized peoples in the fight against terrorism. No civilized nation can tolerate this violence, or allow this wicked ideology to spread on its shores.

I addressed a summit of more than 50 Arab and Muslim leaders — a unique meeting in the history of nations — where key players in the region agreed to stop supporting terrorism, whether it be financial, military or even moral support.

The nation of Qatar, unfortunately, has historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level, and in the wake of that conference, nations came together and spoke to me about confronting Qatar over its behavior. So we had a decision to make: Do we take the easy road, or do we finally take a hard but necessary action? We have to stop the funding of terrorism.

I decided, along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, our great generals and military people, the time had come to call on Qatar to end its funding — they have to end that funding — and its extremist ideology in terms of funding.

I want to call on all other nations to stop immediately supporting terrorism. Stop teaching people to kill other people. Stop filling their minds with hate and intolerance. I won’t name other countries, but we are not done solving the problem, but we will solve that problem. Have no choice.

This is my great priority because it is my first duty as President to keep our people safe. Defeating ISIS and other terror organizations is something I have emphasized all during my campaign and right up until the present. To do that, stop funding, stop teaching hate, and stop the killing.

For Qatar, we want you back among the unity of responsible nations. We ask Qatar, and other nations in the region to do more and do it faster.

I want to thank Saudi Arabia, and my friend, King Salman, and all of the countries who participated in that very historic summit. It was truly historic. There has never been anything like it before and perhaps there never will be again. Hopefully, it will be the beginning of the end of funding terrorism. It will, therefore, be the beginning of the end to terrorism.

No more funding.

        ….we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region[…]

        Saudis fund mosques in the USA with strings attached. You have to have a (radical) Saudi Iman. Pam Geller says 80% of US mosques are Saudi funded.

        From the New York Post: How Saudi Arabia dangerously undermines the United States

        […]Firm figures are elusive, but estimates are that the Saudis fund up to 80% of American mosques, at least in part. And their goal is the same here as it is elsewhere in the world where Islam must compete with other religions: to prevent Muslims from integrating into the host society.[…]
        I’ve seen Saudi money at work in country after country, from Senegal to Kenya to Pakistan to Indonesia and beyond. Everywhere, their hirelings preach a stern and joyless world, along with the duty to carry out jihad (contrary to our president’s nonsense, jihad’s primary meaning is not “an inner struggle,” but expanding the reach of Islam by fire and sword).

        Here’s one of the memories that haunt me. On Kenya’s old Swahili Coast, once the domain of Muslim slavers preying on black Africans, I visited a wretched Muslim slum where children, rather than learning useful skills in a state school, sat amid filth memorizing the Koran in a language they could not understand. According to locals, their parents had been bribed to take their children out of the state schools and put them in madrassas.

        Naturally, educated Christians from the interior get the good jobs down on the coast. The Muslims rage at the injustice. The Christians reply, “You can’t all be mullahs — learn something!” And behold: The Saudi mission’s accomplished, the society divided.[…]

        There are plenty more articles about the Saudi’s building mosques to export Wahhabism’s Islamic theology.

        Even Huff and Puff UK says:

        […]The Muslim woman who spoke of Saudi-funded mosques and the spread of Wahhabi Islam in Thursday’s Question Time was spot on.

        What makes Wahhabism so damaging? We don’t have to look further than its ideologues, such as its founder Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab who is refered to in ISIS publications. His preaching was vehemently intolerant and violent. Anyone who disagreed with his narrow understating of Islam was considered an apostate and would be punishable by death. His preaching brought bloodshed to the Arabian Peninsula in the form of beheadings, executions, and amputations, much like what we have witnessed from ISIS.

        Bernard Haykel, a scholar at Princeton describes the ISIS’ ideology as “a kind of untamed Wahhabism,” and says that “Wahhabism is the closest religious cognate.” Personally, I would not describe ISIS’ ideology as an untamed form of Wahhabism. For me, this overshadows the fundamental problem with Wahhabism’s Islamic theology and implies that Saudi Arabia’s Wahhabism is “tamed.” […]

      NEVER in my life have I had so much for which to give thanks! Never in my life have I experienced such a joyful burden to help others to see how INCREDIBLY blessed we are. I just needed the help of Sundance and the Treepers to have my eyes opened… and my mind blown.

    Sundance. I don’t see an argument for not declaring the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. They are; just ask Egypt. Could someone explain why they should not be singled out here, in America? I thought that it was something that the President would do right after January 20th. Confused.

    President Trump tells it like it is. Trump speaks Common sense, factual reality and he is pro-America and pro-American workers.

    The left deny reality, truth and evidence and seem to hate America and Americans (whether they are Americans or not).

  12. Love it! I live in the Houston area where Qatar funded the Arabic Immersion program for the Houston Independent school district. They interfered similarly in the Tuscon area. The idea is to nudge. In another area of the district, Syrian refugees have been settled around schools that are now serving halal food and areas are being sought out within the schools for PRAYER time for Muslim students. This is outrageous. We are acting like dhimmis in our own country.

      Money talks. They own article great chunks of Europe, from 2012:

      Expose: Qatar’s takeover of Europe
      In Germany, Qatar’s sovereign fund, the Qatar Investment Authority, owns 17 percent of Volkswagen, 10 percent of Porsche and 9 percent of construction giant Hochtief.

      In Italy, to mention just one well known firm, Qatar just bought Valentino’s fashion style company, while AC-Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi is also ready to sell the powerhouse to the ruling Emir of the State of Qatar.

      In the UK, the Qatar Muslims own swathes of the Canary Wharf financial district in London. Qatar also owns 20 per cent of the London Stock Exchange.

      Qatar invested in the Paris St. Germain soccer club and it is an investor in the French Total Oil group, as well as British Shell.

      Qatar financed the 95% of the Shard tower in London, the highest skyscraper in Europe.

      In Cannes, the emir bought an hotel famous for hosting celebrities during the film festival, but it’s also looking to buy a Jewish symbol like the Les Trois Rois hotel in Basel, Switzerland, scene of the iconic portrait of Theodor Herzl.

      Qatar has also purchased, for 300 million euros, the building which hosts part of the US Embassy in Paris….

      In Switzerland, where Qatar is economically very important, famous firms such as Swatch, Tissot and Victorinox, have removed the cross of the Swiss flag from many advertisements, especially in Arab and Asian countries…The Swatch justified the removal by saying that “Muslim countries are not allowed to show the cross in public.”

      It just goes on and on. And it’s only gotten worse since 2012.

    Awhile back at a street festival here in Chicago, while watching a band, a drunken idiot was harassing women, many with their boyfriends or husbands in tow. I watched as these “men” would just say “hey, come on now” & “please stop”

    Of course the drunk kept it up, being highly amused with himself

    After about ten minutes of watching him paw at the women & make crude remarks, I walked over to him, put my hand on his shoulder, leaned in & said “if I see you harass one more female, I’m going to hit you so hard it’ll take you until tomorrow to find all your teeth I’m going to knock out”

    Instantly sobered up, he said he’d leave & won’t be bothering anyone anymore

    Bullies & creeps, like terrorists, don’t respond to appeasement or plea’s to stop. They only understand & react to a threat that will be backed up

    President al-Sisi and King Salman will go along with the plan because at the end of the day, they will get what they want and probably even more.

    Qatar will expeditiously remove any folks belonging to the MB and will cut all financing to terrorist organizations like Hamas. They have been provided a glimpse of what life would be like if the GCC members were to move forward again. Plus the fact that the World Cup will be taking place in their country in 2022 is a major reason to clean up their act and do so immediately. Many FIFA representatives lost their job because of the kick backs they got for giving Qatar the World Cup.

    I watch a lot of soccer and know for a fact that if FIFA has to pull out of Qatar, they will ask the US to host the games in 2022. The last time the World Cup was played in the US was 1994. It was a major success. Our country has the stadiums and hotels needed without having to build. Would not shock me if this is also discussed behind closed doors!

    The US did bid for the 2022 World Cup and were surprised by the decision. Goes to show that money through bribes gets you what you want!

    I am amazed at how many people there are who do not understand the huge significance of what Pres Trump accomplished in Saudi Arabia.

    Saudi Arabia is the location of Mecca and Medina, the two ‘holiest’ mosques in Islam.
    King Salman is referred to as “The Defender of the Two Holy Mosques”.

    So Saudi Arabia is like the ‘capital’ of Islam.
    This makes King Salman and the royal family, the titular heads of Islam.

    This is why HusseinO bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.
    And this was a huge mistake.
    By showing submission…they lost all respect for him.

    Our President went there as an equal.
    The staging of his visit there was a show of power…and it was brilliant.

    He extended his hand in friendship and respectfulness.
    It did not go without notice, that he chose KSA as the “first country he visited as President”.
    And they were honored by it.
    So in return…they honored him for it, in ways we’ve never seen happen before.

    If you haven’t seen this, it is worth a look.
    The Saudis made this video to memorialize Our President’s historic visit.
