Senator John Kerry (D-MA), the same man who sat before Congress in 1971 and likened his Army brethren fighting in Vietnam to ‘Ghenghis Khan’ today says that Americans should not ‘prejudge’ the Muslim Brotherhood victory in Egypt.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee warned against “prejudging” the Muslim Brotherhood as Mohammed Morsi became Egypt’s first Islamist president today.
“During my recent visits to Cairo, I’ve had two candid discussions with the new president. He’s acknowledged that the central issue to Egypt’s future is economic. His words suggest he understands the gravity of the challenges facing Egypt,” Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said today.
“In our discussions, Mr. Morsi committed to protecting fundamental freedoms, including women’s rights, minority rights, the right to free expression and assembly, and he said he understood the importance of Egypt’s post-revolutionary relationships with America and Israel,” he added. “Ultimately, just as it is anywhere in the world, actions will matter more than words.”
Reading that might give one the impression that the Muslim Brotherhood’s history of anti-Semitism / siding with the Nazis in WWII was lost on Kerry, that he is simply not educated. Uh, that doesn’t seem to be the case:
“Obviously American concerns about the Muslim Brotherhood’s past statements and positions are widely shared and well understood. But it would be a mistake for us to pull back from our engagement with a free and democratic Egypt,” the senator said. “This is a time to test intentions not to prejudge them. All parties must come together to build a better future for the Egyptian people and I will continue to monitor Egypt’s political transition with great interest.”
Based on that line of reasoning, Kerry was unjustly critical of Genghis Khan in 1971 because he didn’t account for future behavior had Khan still been living. Furthermore, how is it ‘prejudging’ an organization to take the leaders of that organization at their word?
The asshat John Kerry says don't prejudge, I guess we are suppose to throw this out the window and pretend there are only good intentions with Muslim Brotherhood.

Crappy salute, too.
Here's his contact page - - http://www.kerry.senate.gov/contact/ . You can Retort to his Report. I did.
Mike, you have to remember that when muslims lie, they have takiyya on their side. They are allowed to lie as long as it helps their adgenda. That is why obama doesn't get in trouble with his muslim friends for supporting gay 'marriage', even though it's wrong.....it helps with his adgenda. God bless you. momof5shortstuff
You are so right about that, Kate. I am embarassed to say that I live in the screwed up state that he represents. He is a disgrace. I will write to him about this one so I can get my canned "thank you for your interest in legistlative affairs" letter. This man makes me vomit!
No we sure can't be far behind as long as there are Al Gores, John Kerrys , Edward Markeys and John Edwards and B.H.O.s who work their "silver tounged" way into Regal positions of unbridled influence. These Destroyers obviously have read Sun Tsu's Art of War where Sun states thaqt the greatest victorytakes place without firing one shot. G.K. was civillized compared to "Kerry Klowns of Kalamity'.
Ted - Sarcasm on right?
And of course he will uphold women's rights....the ones that they have under sharia law for what's that's worth. He needs to spend a day in the desert in a burka!
Our troops are not like Genghis Khan, if they were like the Great Khan, there wouldn't be any Muslims left in the world. I believe Genghis Khan destroyed towns and villages on his way West and every one in his path.
They didn't have to worry about ridiculous rules of engagement either!
