An Egyptian magazine claims that six American Islamist activists who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy.

The Dec. 22 story published in Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine (read an IPT translation here) suggests the six turned the White House “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The story is largely unsourced, but its publication is considered significant in raising the issue to Egyptian readers.

The six named people include: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.


Growing numbers of takers, shrinking number of makers

The “taker” society has spread all across the country, but it has manifested itself more in some states than in others, leading a writer a 
Forbes magazine to label them “death spiral states” because they have more takers than givers.

“For example, in California the ratio of ‘takers versus makers’ is bigger than one. If you own a software company that employs 100 people, you’re supporting 139 other people in the state who are on the ‘takers’ list,” Fox News Insider noted.

The other 10 states include: New Mexico (the worst of the bunch, with 153 takers to 100 workers), Illinois, Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio, New York, Maine and South Carolina.

“America is rapidly becoming a nation of takers. An increasing number of Americans expect the
government to take care of them from the cradle to the grave, and they expect the government to dig into the pockets of others in order to pay for it all,” noted one observer at The Economic Collapse website.

What happens when, nationally, there are more takers than makers? The answer is easy to see – just look across the Atlantic Ocean at Europe, where one nation after another is going bankrupt thanks to decades of cradle-to-grave social welfare programs.

It isn’t adding up

Here is the situation by the numbers:

— Already, the United States is drowning in debt; at nearly $16.5 trillion – and 
Obama is demanding to raise it even further
 as the country approaches the current debt limit once more.
