Obama Administration Welcomes Major Islamic Jihadist Leader, Who Says ISIS Is Not A Terrorist Group, Into The State Department

By Walid Shoebat and Ben Barrack


In an extremely brazen act, the U.S. State Department opened its arms to a Muslim Brotherhood delegation from Egypt, led by a MAJOR Muslim Brotherhood activist judge named Waleed Sharaby. The plans for the trip began last August in Turkey, where the Revolutionary Council of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood was formed. The founder was a man named Amr Darraj. The president of this council is Maha Azzam, a woman and Sharaby is the Executive Secretary.

As reported at the time, this coincided with Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi’s trip to Turkey. Sharaby is also quite cozy with al-Qaradawi, which is evident in the photo below. Al-Qaradawi has been banned from entering the U.S. since 1999:

According to reliable Arabic sources, Sharaby fled Egypt in August of 2014 as he wasconspiring with the Revolutionary Council after he had been removed from his position by Egyptian President Gen. Abdel Fatah el-Sisi. Sharaby then fled to Turkey, where he is believed to be living today. As he was attempting to flee Egypt, Sharaby also attempted to bribe an Egyptian security officer with $2000.

The purpose of the Revolutionary Council is to successfully oust el-Sisi. Erdogan seeks to collaborate with this Council so that he can one day be the Sultan of the newly formed Ottoman Empire. After Erdogan’s successful election last August, he welcomed all the leaders of the Revolutionary Council:

Wanted for high treason, Sharaby represents the so-called “Egyptian Revolutionary Council”, an alliance that was launched in Istanbul, Turkey on August 8, 2014. Its aim is to achieve the goals of the January 25 revolution and is led by President Maha Azzam, who lives in Great Britain. Azzam led a delegation similar to the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs recently to warn them of the consequences of cooperation with the current powers in Egypt working with Walid Sharaby who is also member of the Council.

Just two months before his visit to the U.S., Sharabi denounced the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on social media, for identifying dozens of groups as terrorist organizations.Sharaby said (translated):

“I do not know why the Emirates are naming 83 Organizations as terrorist organizations? How could anyone who says “There is not God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah be a terrorist?”

Clearly, Sharaby is saying in that one statement that NONE of the 83 groups are terrorist organizations. Two of the 83 groups were in the U.S. – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Muslim American Society (MAS). Boko Haram in Nigeria, al-Qaeda, Hamas, the Taliban, ISIS, and every head-severing terrorist organization is really NOT a terrorist organization, according to Sharaby.

There you go, according to Sharaby, al-Qaeda and ISIS are NOT terrorist groups. Nonetheless, he was embraced by the U.S. State Department. About his visit to the U.S.,Sharaby tweeted the following:

“I trust in Allah for our victory. I was ordered by Allah to do this.

Today, Sharaby is wanted for high treason in Egypt. Based on charges like these, it’s not surprising that his followers and supporters post depictions like this of el-Sisi:

Sharaby even propagandizes NYC protests, posting a YouTube video to his twitter account in which he’s leading Muslim Brotherhood protesters marching in that city. Sharaby comments how protesters in New York are protected by the police, not murdered:

Back in Egypt, Sharaby was quite familiar with protesting as well. Here, he rides on the shoulders of those carrying the black flag of Islam:

Since the overthrow of Mursi in Egypt, the Rabi’a Al-‘Adawiyya mosque became ground zero for the Muslim Brotherhood protesters. The term refers to a woman from Basra who first formulated the Sufi ideal of a love of Allah is such an icon that the mosque in Al-Nahda Square in Cairo was named after her. That mosque is the origin of the four-fingered hand signal. Since Rabi’a means “Fourth” it became “Rabi’a four finger sign,” which has gained widespread popularity. Users from all over the world showed interest from Asia to Europe and from Africa to the USA symbolizing the Islamic Revolution worldwide.

It’s also displayed prominently by Sharaby on his Facebook page as he and his friends proudly demonstrate (Sharaby can be seen on the far left of this photo):

A translation of what can be seen on that Facebook page reads:

“They arrest you, they kill you, they beat you, they burn you, they falsely accuse you. They prevent you access to Muslim scholars and they imprison your freedom. They know that there is a world conspiracy against you. They arrest your leader whom you have elected… And if you come out of your closet in anger, they call you extremist. But why should I not be extremist towards my religion and Islam? Is this an accusation deserving that I flee? The hell with you, you prostitutes.”

Sharaby’s visit to the U.S. State Department prompted protests in Egypt, in support of the Brotherhood. The protesters are calling for open Jihad to overthrow the sitting government there, led by Gen. Abdel Fatah el-Sisi. The primary short-term objective of the terrorists the delegation represent is just that; Adam Kredo reported the group referred to itself as the ‘anti-coup’ delegation. In an even more brazen act, one of the members of that delegation – Waleed Sharaby – flashed the four-fingered Muslim Brotherhood salute, which was born in the days after Mohammed Mursi was overthrown in 2013.

It’s clear that the State Department wanted to meet with the Brotherhood leaders with as little attention being paid to the visit as possible. Evidence of this is that the names of State Department officials with whom the delegation met are not known. Sharaby’s decision to flash the Brotherhood sign and post it on his Facebook page certainly didn’t help.

One of the things that should be made clear is that the bigger picture involves Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Any Muslim Brotherhood delegation that visits the Obama administration in Washington, DC is whole-heartedly supported by Erdogan. has reported, ever since the overthrow of Mursi, Brotherhood leaders from that country have found safe harbor in Erdogan’s Turkey. In fact, most recently, Turkey opened its arms to leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Gaza branch – Hamas. reported, this included the group’s head cheese, Khaled Meshaal.
One of the members of the delegation that visited the State Department with Sharaby thisweek was also part of a Brotherhood delegation that met with Obama administration officials in April of 2012; his name is Abdul Mawgoud Dardery. At the time, the White House attempted to say the delegation met with “low-level officials” but was called on it and had to admit that the meeting was actually with “mid level officials” when pressed.

The 2012 delegation included Dardery, a Muslim Brotherhood member who had recently been elected to Parliament. Joining Dardery then was Sondos Asem, a senior editor with Ikhwanweb, the Muslim Brotherhood’s official publication; Hussein El-Kazzaz, a Brotherhood economic adviser, and Khaled Al-Qazzaz. All four members participated in apanel discussion at Georgetown University during their visit to the U.S. The discussion was moderated by John Esposito, a renowned Muslim Brotherhood apologist.

The group’s visit to the U.S. perhaps not so coincidentally coincided with the announcement that Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater would be running for President of Egypt (he would eventually be replaced by Mohammed Mursi because el-Shater had been convicted and served prison time too recently). Sondos – whose mother (Manal Abu Hassan) is a leader with the Muslim Sisterhood along with Saleha Abedin, the mother of close Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin – reacted to the news that el-Shater would be running:
