Joe Walsh Calls on President Obama Not to Meeting with Groups that “Do Not Respect Women’s Rights”

A press release from Congressman Joe Walsh:

Walsh Calls on President to Distance Himself from Muslim Brotherhood

“I call on the President not to meet with or recognize groups that do not respect women’s rights and basic freedoms.”

WASHINGTON – Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-8) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s meeting yesterday with the Muslim Brotherhood, the most dominant political organization in Egypt.

The Muslim Brotherhood has had one of the worst women’s rights records in the Middle East and upon assuming power in Egypt after the fall of President Mubarak, they have illustrated this fact.

The Brotherhood has scaled back the right to legally seek a divorce and the right to make basic educational choices for their children, and in 2007 their platform forbid that a woman could be President of Egypt.

Walsh stated:

“It’s disappointing that an Administration – which continues to use inflammatory rhetoric against Republicans by using terms such as ‘War on Women’ – would meet with the Muslim Brotherhood.

“This is a group that would be happy to see women’s rights returned to the Stone Age.

“The President is sending an unclear message.

“Just this week he felt the need to speak out against women not being admitted into Augusta National, but a day later is meeting with a group that discriminates against women.

“Which is it?

“The Muslim Brotherhood represents the exact opposite of American ideals: freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and women’s rights.

“It is insulting that the President would meet with a group that blatantly disregards religious freedom on the eve of Passover and Good Friday, and a group that does not even recognize Israel’s right to exist.

“I call on the President not to meet with or recognize groups that do not respect women’s rights and basic freedoms.”
