Shocker: Cindy Supports Terrorists – In Egypt

From her undying fans at the Associated Press:

Cindy Sheehan in Egypt for Islamists


February 13, 2008

CAIRO, Egypt – Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan joined a protest Wednesday seeking the support of Egypt’s first lady in ending a military trial of members of the country’s largest Islamic organization.

Under the watchful eyes of dozens of black-clad and helmeted anti-riot police, some 50 heavily veiled wives and children of 40 senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood detained for the past year, gathered in front of the headquarters of first lady Suzanne Mubarak’s National Council Women carrying banners calling for their release.

“I am here to protest the trial of civilians in front of a military tribunal as this is a violation to international law,” said Sheehan, who gained fame in the U.S. for her sit-in outside President Bush’s Texas ranch following the death of her son in Iraq.

“As a mother of a son who was killed in the war, I presented a letter to Ms. Suzanne Mubarak to realize how those women and children are suffering.” …

In February 2007, President Hosni Mubarak ordered 40 of the organization’s members to be tried by a military tribunal on charges of money laundering and terrorism. The court’s verdict is expected Feb. 26…

It would seem that even we underestimated her love of terrorists.

If you don’t know its history already, Wikipedia has a nice write-up of the Muslim Brotherhood and its history in Egypt.

Suffice it to say that they are the fount of much of the terrorism in the Middle East.

(I had first posted this is the “Other News” section. But since Cindy is the site’s mascot, it seemed to warrant its own thread.)
