The title is very misleading as will be detailed later.
Here Lorenz complains that President Obama met with "American Muslim leaders". Where's the Muslim Brotherhood leaders?
American Muslim leaders met privately with United States President Barack Obama at the White House last week. President Obama entertained the 14 leaders for more than an hour behind closed doors. The president initially refused to report who the Muslim leaders were.For less than a week.
Also this article cites The Washington Times, a newspaper which happens to be owned by a very controversial religious group.
Lorenz then mentions some American Muslim organizations and individuals.
A couple of those hosted by the president have very checkered pasts and disturbingly close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB).Wait. The title of Lorenz's article said President Obama met with "Muslim Brotherhood Leaders". But here Lorenz only mentions President Obama meeting with (according to Lorenz) "disturbingly close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood".
Lorenz only cites one individual from that meeting. The individual leads an organization that Lorenz says was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood but Lorenz makes no attempt to say the individual in question is with the Muslim Brotherhood. So it is seems safe to assume the individual in question is not in the Muslim Brotherhood at all.
In other words President Obama did not meet with Muslim Brotherhood leaders at all.
The title of this article violates the Ninth Commandment PCG claims to love so much.
Lorenz has given false witness against President Obama.
Lorenz should apologize to President Obama.
Now later on Lorenz does mention that the State Department held a meeting with actual Muslim Brotherhood representatives. But that is not the same as President Obama meeting with Muslim Brotherhood leaders as the article's title falsely alleges.
The president’s private meeting came hot on the heels of the State Department’s meeting with representatives from the MB. Included in the delegation were two of the top representatives within the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. The MB is considered a terrorist organization by our Egyptian allies. Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry stated, “The Muslim Brotherhood is not a political party, but according to the Egyptian law, which must be respected, it is designated as a terrorist organization.”The State Department is not President Obama. Why has Lorenz's mixed up these two meetings to falsely accuse President Obama of meeting with Muslim Brotherhood leaders? Is Lorenz seeing things?
The White House refutes this claim: “We have not seen credible evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood has renounced its decades-long commitment to non-violence.” Meanwhile, INTERPOL has issued arrest warrants for 40 senior Muslim Brotherhood figures.
It is clear that Lorenz has violated the Ninth Commandment by falsely accusing President Obama of meeting with Muslim Brotherhood leaders. Even if President Obama sympathized with the Muslim Brotherhood as Lorenz portrays in this article it is still bearing false witness to say he met with Muslim Brotherhood leaders when he did not.
However considering how some of PCG's leaders such as Joel Hilliker and Gerald Flurry have presented even Muslim children as being threatening how can one rely on PCG to properly discern the nature of such groups?
They woefully ignore several pressing realities: that the Palestinian children of which the president speaks are being raised on virulent Jew hatred... (Joel Hilliker, "Obama in Israel", March 23, 2013.)Even the Muslim children are filled with hatred and to be feared according to PCG's leaders. So of course any American Muslim organization is going to be portrayed as evil and sympathetic to people PCG despises.
Think for a moment about the people within Islamist culture today. They are raising their children—from the time they are little babies—to hate, even to murder. Those young people constantly hear that message of hatred, and they become more evil as they grow older. They say they want to wipe Israel (biblical Judah) off the face of the Earth! What is the solution to that problem? God has a plan for them. He will resurrect them into a world that has been transformed into a paradise by keeping God’s law of love! He plans to educate them and give them all the love that they never received in this evil world today! (Gerald Flurry, The Former Prophets: How to Become a King, Chapter 2, 2014, p. 30.)
I have no idea if Lorenz shares the views of Hilliker and Gerald Flurry presented above but he takes his orders from them.
This article and its transparently false accusation against President Obama only shows once against the PCG's writings are not to be trusted. Considering how they can get something so transparently wrong how can anyone trust them to know the secrets of the universe and see the future?
