So isn’t the rest of Saudi Arabia and Trump loves ... (
The story of the Muslim Brotherhood "started floating around" in 1952 when Sayyid Qutb returned to Egypt from his 3 year stay in the U.S. and started publishing his radical ideas of Islam. Qutb is the Egyptian writer and teacher who is considered the god father of the MB. Qutb was a strident opponent of Egypt's secular government, he published many tracts on what he called "Pure Islam" which called for an Islamic theocracy much like the Iranian Regime.
In the 1970s, Khashoggi and Osama bin Laden joined the Muslim Brotherhood about the same time and they became friends. Both of them were inspired by the writings of Sayyid Qutb, And as with Qutb's hostility toward secularism, both Khashoggi and bin Laden were opponents of Saudi Arabia's secular monarchy--the enormous wealth of the House of Saud and their lavish debauched lifestyle were abhorrent to radicalized Muslims who wanted "Pure Islam."
Jamal Khashoggi was in the US on an O-visa after self-imposed exile from his native Saudi Arabia. He fled the country after the arrest of close friends.
Now, about Melania;
Michael Wildes, an immigration lawyer and a lifelong Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter, was Melania's lawyer through all the controversy about her status.
Mr. Wildes’ primary loyalty is to the Democratic Party, but he is devoted as well to maintaining his reputation as an outstanding immigration lawyer, and it is in that capacity, he says, that he upholds the integrity of Ms. Trump’s immigration saga. He was not Melania Trump’s original immigration lawyer, but when a question arose as to whether she had worked without the proper visa, he was brought in to review the documents and clarify that she was in full compliance. Wildes said, "she has been beyond reproach.”
Ms. Trump has chosen not to release any of the documentation she provided to the government, which would put the public’s questions to rest, but “why should she release them?” Mr. Wildes asked. “The government reviewed them and trusted her. She’s not releasing them because she doesn’t feel that her privacy needs to be invaded. She was transparent about the indicia in her passport — but they are personal documents.
"I studied them," he said. "I studied them with a magnifying glass. I studied them three-dimensionally. I am a stalwart Democrat, and if there was anything inappropriate, I would not have stayed the course. If she had not been compliant, I would not be her lawyer. That’s a tall order, but I’m old school. Someone’s word has value. Our scholarship is unparalleled when it comes to these matters."
"There is no doubt that she is highly accomplished," Mr. Wildes said. "She has been associated with some of the biggest ad campaigns in the world, and she was highly remunerated. She is undeniably a U.S. citizen now."
One thing Melania did not do is jump a border fence or swim the Rio Grande and enter the US illegally. She came here with the talent, the skills, and the experience to make a contribution to American society, not bleed its welfare system.
And look where she is today.
