Via Toronto Sun:
A cynic might say the Muslim Brotherhood will be elated over Barack Obama’s re-election, as now its American foot soldiers will be assured of an open invitation to the White House.
Meanwhile, a release from the Islamist organization, The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), states America was wise to reject “Islamophobic” candidates.
CAIR sees the GOP as anti-Muslim; it’s long list of “Islamophobic” candidates included all Republicans standing for the Senate and in local elections.
Many Muslims are overjoyed. One described the Obama victory as “awesome” on Facebook and noted it was “time now to steamroll over the hate mongers like America did!” American Muslims formed a core part of the faithful who overwhelmingly voted Obama in for a second term, though in numbers slightly below 2008 levels.
They now cheer for “their” man in the White House.
This despite the fact little came of the promises Obama made to them after his victory in 2008: closing Guantanamo, building bridges in the Middle East and bringing greater understanding between the Islamic world and the West.
