Hannity, Horowitz & Ghouse on Brotherhood

April 9, 2012 at 4:00 on Sean Hannity Radio 


First of all, I want to make this unambiguously clear; First of all, I want to make this unambiguously clear;I don’t like the policies of the Brotherhood,  looking at the practical side of it –They are the elected representatives of the people, and if the President Obama rejects them, he will be emboldening them and getting them to dig in their heels – that would be disastrous
We have done that with Hamas, and we should not repeat it with Brotherhood.  

If you work with people, even the rogue elements, I am not saying they are rogues, we have a chance of turning things around that are good for all the parties…. If we reject them, we don’t have a prayer.

It is in our interests, the interests of the Egyptians people and certainly in the interests of Israel’s security, we have to make this work.

Remember the Peace deal was between the people of Egypt and Israel and we cannot afford to piss off the Egyptian people. The deal was not between Mubarak and Netanyahu, Mr. Netanyahu made a major mistake by telling the US to support Mubarak – his intelligence was wrong, so was ours. I am glad the Egyptians are not going to hold it against him or the Israelis.  That was the dumbest move by Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Relationship is with nations and not individuals, individuals do drive the accords, but if they do not represent the will of the people, their words are as good as the dust.

Brotherhood has proposed an alternate Candidate Mohammad Moris – it is a good news, it shows that  the democracy has meaning and there is a process in place– the possibility of disqualifying the primary nominee El-Shater or the others; Sulaiman or Amr Mousa.

Mr. Horowitz called Obama a liar – I jumped on him, Obama is not a liar, he is sharing what he reviews. Calling Mubarak to go was the right thing. "The people on the other side call you a liar Mr. Horowitz, are you?

We need to tie the $1.5 Billion aid to Egypt to maintain peace and prosperity.

Mr. Horowitz said that the brotherhood charter calls for destruction of Israel – I told him that I have not read it, if it is fact, then it needs to be condemned.

They said, the first act of Brotherhood was to declare Israel as enemy, I need to verify that, but if they did, I condemn it, otherwise it is the not the truth.

I asked Hannity, what are the choices we have? Let the brotherhood do what they want, or work with us? He said, shall we say, please please be friends with Israel – I said, no, "this financial aid is for maintaining peace in the region, and we need you to work on that. No preconditions."

Horowitz was jumping form topic to topic – claiming that 80% of females are mutilated genitally – wanted to ask him, if brother hood issues that order, or if it was his assumption and how is this connected with the topic of $1.5 billion aid?

President Obama is right in taking a cautious approach, we have a choice to mess up the situation or make it better. Rejecting brotherhood amounts to telling them stick with their position, working with them is acknowledging who they are and asking them to be with us and respect the peace treaties. Peace comes through dialogue.
