Democrats Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt
North Carolina Democrat David Price is leading a congressional delegation in Egypt—and meeting with representatives of one of the world’s most insidious and implacable jihad organizations, the Muslim Brotherhood: Egypt criticizes US over meeting with Muslim Brotherhood lawmaker.
Egypt criticized a meeting Sunday that included four US members of Congress and the head of the Muslim Brotherhood’s bloc in Parliament, accusing the US of having double standards for meeting with the banned Egyptian group but refusing to meet with the militant Palestinian group Hamas.

Price’s spokesman, Paul Cox, said the congressman was unavailable for comment Sunday. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo also declined to comment.
The delegation also included Reps. Jeff Fortenberry, R-Neb.; Nick Rahall, D-W.Va.; and Gwen Moore, D-Wis. The group is on a Middle East tour that will take them to Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories, Price told reporters.
Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, too. Maybe they can meet with Hamas and Hizballah while they’re paying homage to the global jihad.
This is what appeasement looks like:
