America is the largest, or should I say, largess, contributor (16.2%) to the IMF, and we have been bailing out Europe since ... forever, it seems.
Why should the world fund the pan-Islamic supremacist group dedicated to a religious, political, and social movement? Its most famous slogan, used worldwide, is "Islam is the solution." The Brotherhood's stated goal is to install the Qur'an and Sunnah as the "sole reference point for ...ordering the life of the Muslim family, individual, community ... and state."
In the US, the Muslim Brotherhood's stated goal is as follows: “The Ikhwan [Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” That's from An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.
Why fund these jihadists?
Lagarde assures Muslim Bros. IMF ready to help Egypt... Reuters, June 30, 2012 (hat tip Van)
International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde called Egyptian President-elect Mohamed Mursi to discuss the economic challenges facing Egypt and how the international lender can best help, a spokesperson for the IMF said on Friday.
"The MD reiterated that the IMF stands ready to support Egypt and looks forward to working closely with the authorities," the spokesperson said.
She also congratulated Mursi on his election as president, "which represents an important step forward in Egypt's transition," the spokesperson said.
However, no timetable has been set for an IMF staff visit to Egypt to discuss a $3.2 billion IMF loan. That "will depend on the formation of the government," the spokesperson said.
The Muslim Brotherhood's Mursi is due to be sworn into office on Saturday, making him Egypt's first Islamist president. He and Lagarde spoke on Thursday.
Brotherhood officials have said they plan to resume the previous government's stop-and-start negotiations for a $3.2 billion IMF loan.
A staff visit to meet Mursi and members of his new government would be an essential part of that process.
