Barry Webb it is Tuesday August 6 2009

0:00:05.250,0:00:11.519
teen and here we are doing news Tuesday

0:00:10.230,0:00:14.820
why does tell us what you have this

0:00:11.519,0:00:17.070
first today one of the main things I

0:00:14.820,0:00:20.760
wanted to talk about today was this

0:00:17.070,0:00:23.189
program on allowed to be a TV called Sir

0:00:20.760,0:00:26.880
Malcolm L which means industry and death

0:00:23.189,0:00:30.510
each week they cover issues have to do

0:00:26.880,0:00:34.079
with terrorism and whatnot and this

0:00:30.510,0:00:36.090
particular session focused on the Muslim

0:00:34.079,0:00:41.059
Brotherhood actually the title of the

0:00:36.090,0:00:44.219
show was the Brotherhood’s war in Europe

0:00:41.059,0:00:46.739
and the host of the port went to Belgium

0:00:44.219,0:00:49.649
because Belgium is kind of a heart of

0:00:46.739,0:00:52.260
Europe and he interviewed a couple of

0:00:49.649,0:00:54.809
Muslims that live here one guy was just

0:00:52.260,0:00:56.969
mumbling so softly I couldn’t hear him

0:00:54.809,0:01:01.350
but the other guy was pretty good he was

0:00:56.969,0:01:04.920
a director in a research center there

0:01:01.350,0:01:07.560
Belgium and anyway according and what

0:01:04.920,0:01:11.400
this fellow said is that about one-fifth

0:01:07.560,0:01:19.250
of the population of Brussels is Muslim

0:01:11.400,0:01:22.470
and anymore to explain how the

0:01:19.250,0:01:24.360
all the groups are vying for the

0:01:22.470,0:01:28.560
allegiance of these Muslims if turkey

0:01:24.360,0:01:31.350
EPCOT area Iran you’ve got a kind Isis

0:01:28.560,0:01:33.420
Muslim Brotherhood you’ve all vying for

0:01:31.350,0:01:35.970
the allegiance of these people and of

0:01:33.420,0:01:37.710
course Turkey and Qatar are allied and

0:01:35.970,0:01:41.159
they both support the Muslim Brotherhood

0:01:37.710,0:01:44.070
so the bottom line is that the Muslim

0:01:41.159,0:01:47.630
Brotherhood basically controls all of

0:01:44.070,0:01:50.700
the mosque and Islamic centers in Europe

0:01:47.630,0:01:52.170
not only that he said that even Muslims

0:01:50.700,0:01:55.710
who are not members of the Brotherhood

0:01:52.170,0:01:58.790
and Muslim organizations that are not

0:01:55.710,0:02:00.810
connected directly with the Brotherhood

0:01:58.790,0:02:02.759
actually spread the Brotherhood’s

0:02:00.810,0:02:07.229
ideology on they might have all bought

0:02:02.759,0:02:10.489
into the ideology of the Brotherhood he

0:02:07.229,0:02:12.190
also said that that yes there is a

0:02:10.489,0:02:14.110
moderate strain

0:02:12.190,0:02:16.500
and there are moderate preachers and

0:02:14.110,0:02:18.610
they’re in Europe and moderate talk and

0:02:16.500,0:02:22.240
and of course there are other radicals

0:02:18.610,0:02:25.270
but the moderates are failing for a II

0:02:22.240,0:02:28.120
gave an example of when there was a

0:02:25.270,0:02:29.980
recent conference in Rotterdam where

0:02:28.120,0:02:33.340
they had some meeting moderates come in

0:02:29.980,0:02:38.050
and talk about things like toleration

0:02:33.340,0:02:40.180
and assimilation into Europe and that

0:02:38.050,0:02:44.320
sort of thing in in it drew about 10 or

0:02:40.180,0:02:47.590
15 people but when a Muslim Brotherhood

0:02:44.320,0:02:50.830
big big shot like a receipt I knew she

0:02:47.590,0:02:53.890
was the head of the Muslim the Tunisian

0:02:50.830,0:02:56.260
branch and Muslim Brotherhood when he

0:02:53.890,0:02:57.940
came to speak in in Brussels they had

0:02:56.260,0:03:01.360
thousands he said they came from all

0:02:57.940,0:03:04.390
over Europe from Denmark and Germany but

0:03:01.360,0:03:08.260
not and they you know taxis motels they

0:03:04.390,0:03:10.690
spent gobs and gobs of money and so

0:03:08.260,0:03:13.060
that’s what’s winning in Europe and then

0:03:10.690,0:03:15.040
he kind of hinted that can what’s going

0:03:13.060,0:03:16.690
on Brussels it’s gonna be yes the same

0:03:15.040,0:03:19.090
thing in France and the rest of Europe

0:03:16.690,0:03:20.470
in the news today I don’t know if it’s

0:03:19.090,0:03:22.330
if this is something you’re you’ve

0:03:20.470,0:03:25.870
you’re you’ve seen or you caught up on

0:03:22.330,0:03:28.000
but there was an attack in Egypt an

0:03:25.870,0:03:29.950
exploding vehicle in front of the turned

0:03:28.000,0:03:31.840
out to be in front of a cancer were to

0:03:29.950,0:03:33.880
the hospital though I don’t know if that

0:03:31.840,0:03:35.740
was the intended location since it was a

0:03:33.880,0:03:38.200
three-car collision and one of them was

0:03:35.740,0:03:41.410
a bomb but the thing that was caught my

0:03:38.200,0:03:43.690
attention is that it was according to

0:03:41.410,0:03:46.239
news article I saw it was by some new

0:03:43.690,0:03:48.640
group which cut which was referred to as

0:03:46.239,0:03:52.120
the violent wing of the Muslim

0:03:48.640,0:03:54.100
Brotherhood and that was interesting

0:03:52.120,0:03:56.050
because typically news organizations

0:03:54.100,0:03:57.910
don’t connect terrorism to the

0:03:56.050,0:04:02.980
Brotherhood have you got anything on

0:03:57.910,0:04:04.270
that at all oh yes talk about Oh before

0:04:02.980,0:04:07.030
god I want to mention that most of these

0:04:04.270,0:04:08.709
news casts that we on Tuesday if you

0:04:07.030,0:04:12.040
want will use that we don’t think one or

0:04:08.709,0:04:15.700
two topics but I send Brad’s website

0:04:12.040,0:04:19.540
Brad Johnson’s website Intel reformed

0:04:15.700,0:04:21.250
org your send him a five or six page you

0:04:19.540,0:04:23.229
know summary so it contains many more

0:04:21.250,0:04:23.870
items and the one or two we talked about

0:04:23.229,0:04:26.120
on these

0:04:23.870,0:04:28.460
so people want the full version of these

0:04:26.120,0:04:30.650
things they can go there and read up on

0:04:28.460,0:04:32.990
them now back to the age of thing yeah

0:04:30.650,0:04:36.580
it’s surfer first first started coming

0:04:32.990,0:04:41.600
out Sunday I was watching you know there

0:04:36.580,0:04:43.699
lrb a TV station and you know they were

0:04:41.600,0:04:47.510
first they cover okay there’s a big

0:04:43.699,0:04:51.380
explosion involving vehicles in Cairo

0:04:47.510,0:04:54.080
and they were interviewing eyewitnesses

0:04:51.380,0:04:55.340
and of course they’re read you know

0:04:54.080,0:04:58.550
there of course were coming and kind of

0:04:55.340,0:05:00.350
garbled first it was just one car

0:04:58.550,0:05:03.590
crashing into another then it was one

0:05:00.350,0:05:05.510
car crashing into three and this fellow

0:05:03.590,0:05:07.460
was driving on the wrong side of the

0:05:05.510,0:05:11.750
street at an extremely high rate of

0:05:07.460,0:05:14.570
speed and then he crashed into three

0:05:11.750,0:05:17.240
other vehicles and that led to the

0:05:14.570,0:05:19.070
explosion now they didn’t call it a

0:05:17.240,0:05:21.949
terrorist act at that time I mean the

0:05:19.070,0:05:24.199
news you know people didn’t but the word

0:05:21.949,0:05:26.570
they use may be suspicious because they

0:05:24.199,0:05:30.020
use the word of the jar in Arabic which

0:05:26.570,0:05:32.570
means explosion and I think you know we

0:05:30.020,0:05:34.490
have cars we have people that drive on

0:05:32.570,0:05:38.630
the wrong side of the freeway here in

0:05:34.490,0:05:41.330
the in the states and cars banging into

0:05:38.630,0:05:43.610
each other and it does cause an exposed

0:05:41.330,0:05:45.830
time I think I’ve been to flames but you

0:05:43.610,0:05:48.680
don’t have this big explosion you know

0:05:45.830,0:05:52.130
that destroys other vehicles all the way

0:05:48.680,0:05:54.580
around the buildings close by etc so the

0:05:52.130,0:05:57.260
use of the word into charge said oficial

0:05:54.580,0:06:00.139
maybe suspicious that there’s more to it

0:05:57.260,0:06:02.330
than just you know a cup of cars banging

0:06:00.139,0:06:04.039
out and their gas tanks you know going

0:06:02.330,0:06:09.700
off there’s more to it than that

0:06:04.039,0:06:13.940
and then Monday night I was listening to

0:06:09.700,0:06:19.310
the hai kya story on an end

0:06:13.940,0:06:20.539
NBC Egypt by emirati it’s a talk show

0:06:19.310,0:06:26.289
host he’d spent the whole evening

0:06:20.539,0:06:30.860
talking about this this incident and

0:06:26.289,0:06:35.780
yeah the explosion occurred right near

0:06:30.860,0:06:37.100
the this a cancer hospital episode some

0:06:35.780,0:06:38.870
he showed some

0:06:37.100,0:06:40.730
to the hospital and it was just our

0:06:38.870,0:06:43.760
Britney tamales it’s gonna have to be

0:06:40.730,0:06:45.800
completely rebuilt so you’re talking

0:06:43.760,0:06:48.020
about a big exposing here that not wiped

0:06:45.800,0:06:50.060
out the four cars involved in the

0:06:48.020,0:06:52.940
accident but also several other cars

0:06:50.060,0:06:56.030
nearby went up in flames and then this

0:06:52.940,0:06:58.520
building also went up 20 dead and 16

0:06:56.030,0:07:04.220
injured if I remember correctly yes yes

0:06:58.520,0:07:05.870
and oh yeah they and the Egyptian

0:07:04.220,0:07:08.990
authorities after investigating finally

0:07:05.870,0:07:10.970
admitted that it was a terrorist act and

0:07:08.990,0:07:13.190
that the car that was driving on the

0:07:10.970,0:07:16.550
wrong side of the street I think I’ll

0:07:13.190,0:07:18.020
say oh fuck I got which means they

0:07:16.550,0:07:20.140
booby-trapped car was carrying

0:07:18.020,0:07:22.460
explosives and they said in another

0:07:20.140,0:07:26.420
another count there was loaded with

0:07:22.460,0:07:29.150
explosives so he was aiming to blow

0:07:26.420,0:07:32.600
himself up in his car in front of

0:07:29.150,0:07:34.370
something now you raised a point which I

0:07:32.600,0:07:38.480
also wondered about too was the hospital

0:07:34.370,0:07:40.370
the target on the TV they also said

0:07:38.480,0:07:42.740
there are some tourist hotels in that

0:07:40.370,0:07:46.130
area so he may have been actually aiming

0:07:42.740,0:07:49.190
for one of those but bashing into into

0:07:46.130,0:07:52.310
three other vehicles thump away kind of

0:07:49.190,0:07:56.780
debris events are kind of preempted his

0:07:52.310,0:07:58.250
target perhaps perhaps now as far as the

0:07:56.780,0:08:01.040
group they identified the group also

0:07:58.250,0:08:03.110
like as the group called Qasim and I’ve

0:08:01.040,0:08:04.850
written about this before or in some of

0:08:03.110,0:08:08.330
the reports I’ve sent to Brad’s website

0:08:04.850,0:08:10.940
this is a relatively new option of the

0:08:08.330,0:08:13.010
Muslim Brotherhood and it’s like this

0:08:10.940,0:08:14.030
the violent wing of the Brotherhood all

0:08:13.010,0:08:17.140
right well that’s quite I find that

0:08:14.030,0:08:19.790
quite interesting because I’m I didn’t I

0:08:17.140,0:08:21.650
mean I know that the violent brother

0:08:19.790,0:08:25.270
brother has tons of violent branches

0:08:21.650,0:08:28.820
fallacy the Islamic state al Qaeda Hamas

0:08:25.270,0:08:30.440
arguably Hezbollah so there’s a lot of

0:08:28.820,0:08:31.730
violent branches the Muslim Brotherhood

0:08:30.440,0:08:33.349
it’s just unusual to see anything

0:08:31.730,0:08:34.640
referenced that way in the news so

0:08:33.349,0:08:37.610
anyway now they’ve got a new one and

0:08:34.640,0:08:39.860
it’s attacking cancer words yeah well

0:08:37.610,0:08:42.740
one more point on this because we’ve

0:08:39.860,0:08:44.960
seen vehicles used as weapons you know

0:08:42.740,0:08:47.810
in Europe but if don’t jump the sidewalk

0:08:44.960,0:08:49.820
run over pedestrians for what not but

0:08:47.810,0:08:50.600
this the first time that I’ve seen any

0:08:49.820,0:08:53.569
vehicle use

0:08:50.600,0:08:56.600
weapon by driving on the wrong side of a

0:08:53.569,0:08:57.889
street at high speed so well I guess you

0:08:56.600,0:09:04.279
haven’t been angling for a while but

0:08:57.889,0:09:05.750
yeah they’re all over the place or you

0:09:04.279,0:09:08.120
never know who says everybody should

0:09:05.750,0:09:09.350
keep their eyes open for that I’ve got

0:09:08.120,0:09:11.509
another question I don’t know if whether

0:09:09.350,0:09:12.649
or not you’re you’ve been catching up on

0:09:11.509,0:09:15.100
this or not but I’m finding it

0:09:12.649,0:09:17.660
absolutely fascinating and possibly

0:09:15.100,0:09:19.490
existentially important and that would

0:09:17.660,0:09:22.880
be what’s going on between India

0:09:19.490,0:09:24.769
Pakistan and Kashmir and you know first

0:09:22.880,0:09:26.930
of all there’s been a series of events

0:09:24.769,0:09:29.060
and I think that the news is missing but

0:09:26.930,0:09:30.709
I mean when you read the news they’ve

0:09:29.060,0:09:33.430
been missing the whole thing that’s led

0:09:30.709,0:09:36.259
up to this there was there was a the

0:09:33.430,0:09:38.480
triple to lack or instant Islamic

0:09:36.259,0:09:41.720
divorce was made illegal in India just

0:09:38.480,0:09:44.810
last week so and we know that Modi the

0:09:41.720,0:09:48.199
Indian Prime Minister is has been quite

0:09:44.810,0:09:50.149
good about stopping the Islamic ocation

0:09:48.199,0:09:53.750
process of India it’s been quite good

0:09:50.149,0:09:56.089
about it and and in making triple 2 lakh

0:09:53.750,0:10:00.110
illegal which is a great success for

0:09:56.089,0:10:02.480
women’s rights and also a blow to the

0:10:00.110,0:10:04.790
the Hedra as I understand it or

0:10:02.480,0:10:08.470
escalation of degree of this lamb in an

0:10:04.790,0:10:12.050
area and now we’re seeing India has has

0:10:08.470,0:10:14.029
removed a fairly old document which

0:10:12.050,0:10:17.449
determines the status of the area of

0:10:14.029,0:10:20.569
Kashmir and they haven’t said this in

0:10:17.449,0:10:22.160
the news but he clearly has put it under

0:10:20.569,0:10:24.769
martial law he’s cut off all

0:10:22.160,0:10:26.540
communications and Internet and he’s

0:10:24.769,0:10:28.009
brought in the military to enforce a

0:10:26.540,0:10:30.949
curfew if that’s not martial law that

0:10:28.009,0:10:32.889
someone needs to explain it to me what

0:10:30.949,0:10:36.380
do you think I mean there’s definitely a

0:10:32.889,0:10:38.810
an Islamic versus non Islamic component

0:10:36.380,0:10:40.730
to this I would say oh absolutely and

0:10:38.810,0:10:44.329
now let’s go back to you know back in

0:10:40.730,0:10:48.230
history yeah devil region India Pakistan

0:10:44.329,0:10:51.230
Bangladesh Kashmir was all part of India

0:10:48.230,0:10:53.990
and there were all Hindus and Buddhists

0:10:51.230,0:10:58.699
living side-by-side in peace until Islam

0:10:53.990,0:11:00.050
came and then in 1947 when the Brits

0:10:58.699,0:11:01.910
pulled out they gave India’s

0:11:00.050,0:11:04.210
independence but then he had this big

0:11:01.910,0:11:08.529
war and and the Muslim Porsche

0:11:04.210,0:11:12.670
broke off now Kashmir remained a part of

0:11:08.529,0:11:14.290
India and however there are were a lot

0:11:12.670,0:11:18.190
of Muslims also that we’re living there

0:11:14.290,0:11:21.010
however at the time of the break though

0:11:18.190,0:11:23.529
there were more Hindus and then Muslims

0:11:21.010,0:11:26.410
and here’s another interesting point is

0:11:23.529,0:11:29.500
that I heard on the TV that Muslims were

0:11:26.410,0:11:32.320
going I mean now Hindus from India

0:11:29.500,0:11:38.080
proper we’re going into Kashmir to

0:11:32.320,0:11:40.089
perform pilgrimage and so there’s

0:11:38.080,0:11:41.560
something sacred about Kashmir there’s a

0:11:40.089,0:11:43.740
sacred site or something that’s incurred

0:11:41.560,0:11:46.029
to the Hindus there so that’s why it’s

0:11:43.740,0:11:48.820
important for them addition to the

0:11:46.029,0:11:50.740
historical connection but the Pakistanis

0:11:48.820,0:11:52.839
wanna because now the Muslims there are

0:11:50.740,0:11:55.690
the majority population they always have

0:11:52.839,0:11:59.680
read you know there’s their host star

0:11:55.690,0:12:03.520
population so you have that going on so

0:11:59.680,0:12:08.380
yeah it’s an indie alexia stuffing down

0:12:03.520,0:12:10.900
on it and they have really defied that’s

0:12:08.380,0:12:15.730
according to the original treaty Kashmir

0:12:10.900,0:12:18.490
is Indian belongs to India and Pakistan

0:12:15.730,0:12:19.779
really has no right there so there’s so

0:12:18.490,0:12:22.750
they’re trying to enforce that and

0:12:19.779,0:12:25.360
Pakistan has their there they’re not

0:12:22.750,0:12:27.970
getting up in arms over that so you got

0:12:25.360,0:12:30.220
two nuclear powers with you know

0:12:27.970,0:12:34.150
hundreds of millions of people on the

0:12:30.220,0:12:35.890
verge of war interesting yeah it’s

0:12:34.150,0:12:38.260
interesting and I think it’s worth

0:12:35.890,0:12:42.750
watching especially because China is

0:12:38.260,0:12:45.520
engaging India on an MLA and border and

0:12:42.750,0:12:47.320
they’re also siding with Pakistan so

0:12:45.520,0:12:48.990
there’s there may be a geopolitical

0:12:47.320,0:12:51.779
components of this as well like

0:12:48.990,0:12:54.110
definitely things are lining up in a

0:12:51.779,0:12:56.090
dangerous way all over

0:12:54.110,0:12:58.310
Barry web thank you very much for this

0:12:56.090,0:13:00.290
update I think it’s very important that

0:12:58.310,0:13:02.510
we do this it’s important that people

0:13:00.290,0:13:04.310
follow it because there has been a

0:13:02.510,0:13:06.710
progression to global events over the

0:13:04.310,0:13:10.840
last few years and if there’s clearly

0:13:06.710,0:13:13.370
some kind of crescendo forming now and

0:13:10.840,0:13:14.930
predicting the future nature of that

0:13:13.370,0:13:16.960
crescendo is important to all of us I

0:13:14.930,0:13:16.960
think

0:13:19.960,0:13:29.719
