The State Department has issued a travel advisory for Americans in Europe this summer. Presumably, that’s because both the Islamic State and al Qaeda have declared their intentions to target Westerners in nations there.
Unfortunately, these jihadist groups have us in their cross-hairs here, as well. That danger is all the greater on both sides of the Atlantic because of the subversive infrastructure-building by the granddaddy of virtually all contemporary Islamic supremacist groups: the Muslim Brotherhood. Brotherhood mosques, front groups and influence operations create the sea in which the violent Islamists swim – and hide.
Not to worry, though. President Obama has just appointed as his Muslim American community liaison a third-generation Muslim Brotherhood operative: Zaki Barzinji. The practical effect of this appointment will be more Brotherhood influence in U.S. policy – and less security for Americans in this country, as well as overseas.
