Believe it or not you can be a “Bride Kidnapping Expert”. Vice magazine goes to Kyrgyzstan to film this tradition which is also starting to grow in Egypt under Muslim Brotherhood favorite Mohammed Morsi. Except in Egypt, Muslims are targeting Coptic women, kidnapping them, and forcing them to convert to Islam before forcing them to marry. To accompany the video, check out Registan.net post about the same topic. Well sort of. The country decided to uphold the laws in favor of bride kidnapping. I keep going to google looking for instances of Jewish and Christian bride kidnapping. And obviously the search engine giant is part of a conspiracy to hide all of those instances.

State Department to Meet with Muslim Brotherhood; Egypt’s Future Fundamentalists to get an Audience of Approval
Today officials at the State Department were asked if they would be meeting with the delegates of the Muslim Brotherhood while the are in Washington. And the State Department offered a resounding and telling affirmation to that question. But that was not the original answer; which is odd. Lets take the answer from Victoria Nulland at today’s press conference:
QUESTION:Members of the Freedom and Justice Party, which is the political arm of the Muslim Brothers, and one of them is a member of the parliament, are in town. It’s the first level – this level visit to Washington that will meet different people. Is there any meeting going on – to take place in this building or not?
MS. NULAND: I don’t know whether we’re meeting this delegation at any level in this building. Let me take that one as well. We’ll get back to you.
And here is how they got back to them. A big strong “yes” of course we are going to meet with the Muslim Brotherhood. After all, we put all the tools in place to make this possible…
Question: Will any State Department officials be meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood delegation that is currently in Washington?
Answer: The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is hosting a conference in Washington titled “Islamists in Power: Views from Within” on April 5. Some of the conference participants will meet with State Department officials while in town. Deputy Secretary Burns will meet with Vice President for Studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Dr. Marwan Muasher and some of the participants in the Carnegie conference on April 4. Some of the Carnegie Endowment conference participants will also meet with Under Secretary for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment Robert Hormats and Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman.
If you havent been following this blog or my Yahoo News stories on this topic please leave a comment that says “Doug, I am not aware of any of the details of this ongoing story that you broke on nationally syndicated radio and number nationally rated tv shows, please send me the links” and I will. Also I will update this post with the related links for good measure tomorrow morning.
Now that the revolutionary fervor of the Arab Spring has come down to a simmer most of the news is focusing on elections and the increasing possibility that Muslim Brotherhood candidates could take control of the country. Absent are the reports of human rights violations and one would be hard pressed to find the little bit of news that brings it to light. Those stories, when they do make it to the airwaves, are usually on Arabic only websites. Effectively this cuts off a good amount of the free world from following the stagnant (and most likely regressive) human rights policies in action in post revolutionary Egypt.
Last month on Egypts “90 Minutes” this clip was aired of a woman being confronted by a “police” officer. To date the man has yet to be identified. If he was/is a member of law enforcement than ID’ing him should not be hard. At a certain point the woman is asked by the officer to remove her undergarments. When she refuses the “officer” says he will be taking her away to the ministry of justice. This video has been brushed aside for two reasons. Firstly, since the man can not, and has not yet been identified, critics claim that he must not be a law enforcement officer of any kind. Secondly, towards the end someone appears in front of the camera making a funny face. The conclusion to date is that the video must be inauthentic. But from what we have learned about the human rights violations post-Mubarak this is still quite tame. It makes one wonder if it is really being brushed aside because what we in the west view as a violations of rights is not viewed the same due to the gender of the victim.
The encounter starts about 1:30 mark and continues until around the 4:00 mark. You be the judge.

You can find the original print story on this encounter via El Bashayer:
UPDATE: I was cleaning out my files, folders, unnecessary bookmarks, etc and came across this older CNN report here. Even then the women were asking “What happened to the revolution we started in Tahrir Square?”. I can answer that. Activities in Tahrir (Cairo) and Alexandria were sort of like a democracy high school party. When the cops break it up and every one is forced to leave what are you left with? Vomit patches on your mom’s new carpet. The participants of the party swear they can relocate the party and continue on. Yet, have you ever made it to the rendezvous? The fun people went their own way and all that is left is a gathering of lonely followers with no clear direction; you mind as well entertain yourself and puke on the new carpet at the new party location.

Since the start of the revelation of a new government created “stealth internet” the State Dept has gone into damage control. My running series on Your Daddy’s Politics has not only covered the developments but is starting to prove extraordinary claims. First and foremost, the original claim that the government already created a stealth internet. Secondly, it failed so spectacularly that it lead to the arrest, torture, and sometimes murder of innocent dissidents.
The interesting part in all these developments is how the State Department has accidentally proven these claims. In “Government Stealth Internet PT 3″ we learned that the uprisings in Tunisia were in fact organized by the State Dept, just like the Egyptian uprising. Part 4 was supposed release those details. However, new developments tonight have taken us in another direction. Tomorrow we will address the theft of Libyan weapons by Al Qaeda Islamic Mehgrab. I tracked these in real time, showing their destinations. But the governments previous “stealth internet” and its security holes lead to the outing of a 20 year operative; losing the missiles. Tonight the State Dept confirmed my claims.
Tomorrow the very strange details will drop concerning the Libyan missiles, my published locations of where they went, and the ST Dept confirmation; one month later. I am doing this post for Pat Dollard and Derised1 in order to bring them up to speed; patriots, friends, and all around good folks. Both a blessing and an asset in any revolution concerning man’s mind and the quest for the naked simple truth.
To get up to speed here are the first three parts:
After the publication of the new Government created “stealth internet” the State Dept freaked out and did something that I have never seen before. They held a press conference in which the State Dept officials names were redacted and requested the press refer to them as “State Dept Official Number One” and “State Dept Official Number Two”. Details on this will be coming soon (Hint: they kind of prove everything I said in the links below)
Why is this a problem now? Well, these two recent articles seem to fit in nicely:
and the follow up
Details tying this together coming soon along with ST Dept talks. Stay tuned…
The US State Dept has taken interest in training the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as far back as 2007. This type of training was mostly geared towards how the Muslim Brotherhood can get involved in the Egyptian government and gain ground in local government using democratic principles.
Confidential State Department cables revealed by Wikileaks show how this effort was funded. Through the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) a conference was to be held “on the role of Islamist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, in democratic politics.” (Click pic for cable)
The conference was to include “American academics and policy makers”. So when Hillary Clinton told a group of activists, shortly after Mubarak stepped down, “We gave grants that the government did not like to support union organizing, to support organizing on behalf of political opposition to the regime. That goes back many years” she was absolutely right.
And earlier in the same interview she also said “everyone will have a place at the table”. When asked if this included the Muslim Brotherhood by a youth activist Sec. Clinton’s response was “whoever they are should have the opportunity to compete for Egyptian votes”. Full interview transcript is available at the State Dept Website with video. (in case you didnt trust my first link) Also, if there was any doubt that a political shift wouldnt include the Brotherhood and fellow Islamists then I refer you to the UNDP Egypt report from 2008 (pg.34 box 1.6)
I announced earlier in the week that I would wrap up the investigation into the State Dept and their involvement in uprisings around the world. In case you missed it here is your cheat sheet. As an update the State Dept has responded to the repercussions on the Stealth Internet (carried at Your Daddy’s Politics: Here and Here) and for the first time in history has not allowed the press to use the individuals names. In print they are only referred to #1 and #2; seriously (more on that tomorrow) But for now, your cheat sheet-you’re welcome
State Department Interviews Reveal Potential Egyptian Bombshell – Which was featured on Glenn Beck’s radio show (Video Here) This is what started it all.
Google Egypt: Ghonim not the only tie to protesters. Which was then plagiarized by Glenn Beck which he and his staff made no attempt to correct even after being made aware of it. See this in my part 4 of my Breitbart interview here
Google Egypt 2: Delete Everything – The organizers asked me to delete my articles after the revolution kicked off. I refused, they deleted their own info but not before I screen-capped it
Google Iraq: Breaking Baghdad – Yes, the same revolutionary pencil necks (State Dept, Google, et al) working with the State Dept tried to set Iraq on fire with complete disregard for our troops still in the country.
Clinton Admits funding opposition labor unions in Egyptian uprisings: Shortly after the fall of Mubarak Clinton tells Egyptian activists that they “gave grants to opposition labor unions to support organizing on behalf of the opposition.” She also said the results in Egypt were “what we hoped for is what happened.”
Protesters shot and murdered in Egypt while in custody (VIDEO-Graphic). While Egypt security forces were rounding up protesters they also executed at least one while behind bars. Also secret undergrund torture prison raided, hundreds of electrical torture devices stashed (VIDEO-think Lethal Weapon)
“We are the Muslim Brotherhoods workers” How the fast growth of anti-Mubarak labor unions is helping them develop electoral power (with video)
State Department to Youth Groups discussing the redemptive qualities of Mohammed Atta,how he was effective as a community organizer, and had the same “power with people” as they do. (With video) Amazingly this speech was given just weeks before the Egyptian uprising-which they not only funded, but helped plan.
