Zvi Mazel: "Obama has fallen in love with the Muslim Brotherhood"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Given their activities in the Sinai, will the threat of ISIS reach the point where Israel has to come to the aid of its Arab neighbours? I talk about this eventuality with Zvi Mazel. The former ambassador from Israel to Egypt is now with the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

Mazel says this is a very real possibility.

The Egyptian army hasn't been able to defeat ISIS on its own. He says that contrary to popular belief, the Egyptian army isn't as competent as we've been led to believe. This is because they were trained by the Soviets during Nasser's time, and focused on conventional, not guerrilla, warfare.

He explains the origins of ISIS, their relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood and how they are being assisted by the local Bedouins, who oppose the Egyptian government.

While it would be impossible for Israel and Egypt to cooperate publicly, Mazel says they could nevertheless share intelligence.

I also asked Mazel about Obama's nuclear deal with Iran and how Arab nations in the region will respond. For many of these Muslim countries, he explains, "hatred of Israel is more important (...) than their own security," and that includes defeating ISIS.

Mazel calls the current situation "a problem of civilizations. The Arabs don't want Jews and Christians in the Middle East. They need Israel to fight two Muslim threats: ISIS and Iran. But still they have not the heart, the courage to change their way of thinking."

Muslim Brotherhood has been in the Whitehouse for years now since Obama has occupied it. That’s who he listens to. Not Congress, not his Democrat nut bar colleagues. Everything he does points to being a sympathizer of terrorists. When he’s on TV I mute it. Why bother listening to him when every word he utters is just plain horse manure? Just yesterday when Obama was in Kenya, the newscaster referred to Kenya as Obama’s ?home country". How could they stay that if he wasn’t born there? Just asking. Also, Huckabee said the Iran deal was equivalent (paraphrasing) to leading Jews to the oven doors. Everyone jumping on him for saying that. How stupid can some Americans be? Do they not think that if/when Iran goes nuclear, one bomb would be all it would take to annihilate Israel! Iran’s leaders have said that! Also the leaders in Iran used the word “holocaust”. Huckabee is trying to get people to understand how serious the threat is and they criticize him for his words! Wilfully blind or just plain stupid!? What would anyone call it if Israel is wiped off the face of the earth, not another holocaust? It makes my blood boil when American politicians and pundits try to haggle over semantics and gloss over really dangerous future catastrophes.

The entire free world are sitting ducks as long as Obama has any power. He is now saying 99% of the world agrees with the Iranian deal? Call me sceptical, but somehow I doubt it. He will say and do anything to further his agenda, he is unscrupulous. I really fear how much more damage he can do in the next year and a half. Ever notice that just about everything that comes out of his mouth these days sounds like a veiled threat.

What Cathy Roachford said. There is absolutely nothing alarmist about that summary. It’s about as real as it gets. We (as a culture) have allowed ourselves to become docile, complacent and weak. Our leaders are even worse. We could put a stop to this NOW (at least the rot on our own soil) but most of the population and and our leaders are in this weird state of denial. Civil war is pretty much a foregone conclusion.

Obama on loving the Muslim Brotherhood, “It’s a fact what can we do?”

Training the Egyptian Army in anyway may come back to bite us in the butt. Look at what happened in Libya. The key is cutting off the money to these terrorist loving countries or caliphates or whatever they want to be called. I know it will not solve everything. But it will be a big blow. If we stop buying their oil, their threats will no longer be significant. North America should set a goal of producing five to ten million more barrels of oil per day locally. Think of the economic boom. These people have declared war on us. They execute our citizens on youtube. How do we send our monies to them?

Wow! That has to be the best interview I have seen so far on the Sinai conflict. Honest, no spin, just great Ezra.
It is a true homage to your reporting talent that you were able to get an interview with such a knowledgeable person.
Just contrast that with the CNN senior reporter that didn’t want to jump to conclusions that someone named Mohammed in the TN shooting was Muslim! Are these people brain dead?
I ran across an essay several years ago that your readers might find interesting. It is called “Why Arabs Lose Wars.” It is a very interesting paper and I commend all your readers to google it. Your guest on this interview kind of pussy footed around why the Egyptian army can’t just wipe these people out. This essay will give you some insight.
It doesn’t matter how much military training you have, if your cultural training supersedes that then any kind of training you get will be secondary to your culture.
Thank you again Ezra for a fantastic interview. Your sources must run very deep because this guy would never make it on MSM and yet, you are able to let us hear him.

Ubama is the root of all evil in the Middle East

Obama, by his actions never “fell out of love” with the Muslim Brotherhood! The Shia Muslim in the White House having deceived lefty voters in America is on track to betray North America, if not all Western Societies.

Isis is not going to stop. There are muslims from all around the world racing over to join in with isis. Furthermore imams from all around the world are praising the efforts of isis and this caliphate to take over the world. What is the world going to do about this? Apparently nothing. Obama is playing a huge role in the support of muslim terrorism by constantly praising islam and putting down Christianity, in a predominantly Christian country. There is a massive holocaust happening in the middle east of Christians and nobody seems to give a dam. What’s coming next? The writing is on the wall. Sooner or later this situation will escalate to the point of no return and this is not going to be good for the rest of the non Islamic world. The enemy walks among us every single day but we must be civil. We must be politically correct, docile and just wait and see what happens, like the Jews in the 2nd ww. Are we just sitting ducks waiting for the eventual take down of our nations? I’m not trying to be an alarmist here, just a realist.

Every now and then the peaceful people of this planet have to wake up and look around and realize that evil never rests and that they must reach deep within themselves and find the courage to do what is required to protect everything they hold dear.
My parents generation had the guts and stamina to deal with Hitler. Now it’s our turn .
The enemy has changed tactics but the evil smells the same.
I’m hearing those pipes and drums.

Can’t you just wait for that Obama to get out of office? He got in power for eight years by lying to the Americans (voters). He is Muslim him self! That is why Obama will not help Egypt. Egypt wanted the U.S. to sell them weapons so they could fight ISIS. Obama would not sell Egypt weapons. How I wish Obama would disappear off the earth!

One problem with the statement that “Obama has fallen in love with the Muslim Brotherhood” is that there was a time he was not in love with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Very wise man, and I hate it, but have no choice but to agree. It is a very sad state of affairs.

“Hatred of Israel is more important than their own security” well, that just about says it all eh?
