Cindy Sheehan Goes Off the Rails...Again

Sphere: Related Content

This time in Egypt of all places:

Under the watchful eyes of dozens of black-clad and helmeted anti-riot police, some 50 heavily veiled wives and children of 40 senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood detained for the past year, gathered in front of the headquarters of first lady Suzanne Mubarak's National Council Women carrying banners calling for their release.

"I am here to protest the trial of civilians in front of a military tribunal as this is a violation to international law," said Sheehan, who gained fame in the U.S. for her sit-in outside President Bush's Texas ranch following the death of her son in Iraq.
Hmmm. Here's the Muslim Brotherhood's credo, St. Cindy:

"Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
And who else may have been a member of this sweet little band of misfits?

One reason the Brotherhood’s commitment to nonviolence is unclear: The original Egyptian organization has spawned branches in 70 countries. These organizations bear the Brotherhood name, but their connections to the founding group vary and some of them may provide financial, logistical, or other support to terrorist organizations. Some terrorist groups—including Hamas, Jamaat al-Islamiyya, and al-Qaeda—have historic and ideological affiliations with the Egyptian Brotherhood. In addition, some of the world’s most dangerous terrorists were once Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood members, including Osama bin Laden’s top deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri. The organization is like “stepping stone,” says Evan Kohlmann, an international terrorism consultant. “[For] someone who is interested in dedicating their lives to a radical Islamist cause, it can be a pathway up…to a more serious dealing with Islam.”
Ayman al-Zawahiri, where have I heard that name before?

Zawahiri has has a falling out with the Brotherhood because he feels that they have not exactly gone the full oppressive Sharia route and all that but they are not nice people. The want Sharia and hope to attain it through political and militant means. Cindy would be the first one imprisoned and executed and that would make her either a Dhimmi or a useful idiot.

"Have screws loose, will travel!" is Cindy's motto. All it takes is hating America and giving her a plane ticket and a couple of six packs and Cindy will come a' running. It doesn't matter that she is standing on her son's grave to promote her own wacky far left political agenda. That is just what Cindy does!
