Obama Joins “Holy War” As US Military Gets Power To Torture Americans

Obama Joins “Holy War” As US Military Gets Power To Torture Americans

O bows to Saudi king

Arab spring revolt against tyranny has morphed into a religious holy war between Sunnis (Muslim Brotherhood) and Shiites

Early releases of security notes circulating in the Kremlin today, provided to the Office of the President by diplomats accompanying President Putin during his G-8 meetings with Western leaders, are confirming that US President Barack Obama, along with British Prime Minister David Cameron, are preparing for “all-out Holy War” in the Middle East and are siding with Sunni Muslims against both the Shiite and Christian minorities of this most volatile of regions.

Not being told to the masses of Western peoples by their propaganda media organs is that the current war in Syria has morphed into one of the most dangerous religious wars in all of human history, and was confirmed this past September by Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdo?an, and as we can, in part, read:

“While discussing the bloodshed in Syria at a September 7 conference held in Turkey, Prime Minister Erdogan drew a chilling parallel. “What happened in Karbala 1,332 years ago is what is happening in Syria today,” he said, comparing the Syrian revolution to the most divisive event in Islamic history, the Battle of Karbala.

Those in the West with any interests in the region have much to learn from Erdo?an’s history lesson. What was originally depicted as a popular uprising against tyranny is now undeniably a war for religious supremacy in the Middle East. In this war, those Syrians who originally took to the streets in their aspirations for democracy have become the only guaranteed losers.

Shiite_sunni conflict

Perversely, however, where one would logically think that the Western powers would be natural allies to Shiite run nations (Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Syria), they instead have used their immense power to support Sunni backed nations (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Egypt, etc.) which continue to outlaw freedom for women, openly persecute Christians and Jews, do not allow their citizens to vote in free elections, and are now calling for a “Global Jihad” against all Shiites.

“I AM A MUSLIM,” OBAMA TELLS EGYPTIAN FOREIGN MINISTER GHEIT
ISLAMIC COUP ON THE WHITE HOUSE

Ahmed_Aboul_Gheit_with_Obamas

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama pose for a photo during a reception at the Metropolitan Museum in New York with Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Arab Republic of Egypt, and H.E. Laila Kamal El Din Salah

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, in which President Obama told him that he was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the stepson of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.

Finally, during the week of 14-18th of January 2010, just on the eve of my winter tour to the US, Rachel picked up a Nile TV broadcast in which Egyptian Foreign Minister Abul Gheit said on the “Round Table Show” that he had had a one on one meeting with Obama who swore to him that he was a Moslem, the son of a Moslem father and step-son of Moslem step-father, that his half-brothers in Kenya were Moslems, and that he was loyal to the Moslem agenda. He asked that the Moslem world show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic American problems (Healthcare), that he would show the Moslem world what he would do with Israel. (more here)

This is according to Israel Today here. Here is the passage from the May 2010 issue of “Israel Today.” It is on page 3 in an article titled “Obama, a ‘Strategic Catastrophe,'” by Aviel Schneider:

The feeling among the Israeli public is that Obama is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel. “The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.

That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term “Islamic extremism” no longer be used in official government documents and statements. Furthermore, the US is now accusing Israel of harming American interests in the Middle East. General David Petraeus, the head of US Central Command, said Israel’s intransigence on resolving the conflict with the Palestinians is endangering US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Even the US Congress considers Obama’s behavior toward Netanyahu humiliating. Three-quarters of the House of Representatives, 337 of 435 members, signed a bipartisan letter to Clinton expressing “deep concern over recent tension” between the two countries, and demanding that it be smoothed over quickly and in private.

“Obama is a real problem for Israel,” a senior official told told Yediot. “He is Israel’s biggest strategic catastrophe.” The newspaper also quoted another official who believes that for the first time Washington has switched sides. “The Obama White House is putting pressure only on Israel but does not expect anything from the Palestinians,” he said. “These American demands are unacceptable.”

Obama told me he is still a Muslim, who supports the Muslim agenda.

This was a statement by Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit on Nile-TV. It was made on the«Round table show».

This is the statement recorded:

Adul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where the US President told him that He was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the step son of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.

Adul Gheit claimed Obama told the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic issues, like the Health care reform, he would show the Muslim World how to deal with Israel.

This is akin to an SS officer getting elected president during WW II. Every country in the free world must be cognizant of such a catastrophic sea change in the leadership of the free world (as witnessed by events over the past year). This changes everything. He took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and yet he has gone around the world promoting Islam, the sharia (Islamic law).

The alleged exchange between Obama and Gheit would almost certainly have happened in early January 2010, when Gheit was in Washington, D.C. regarding “Mideast peace talks.”

On Thursday, January 7, 2010, the Associated Press reported that “Clinton and Mitchell [were] scheduled to meet” with Gheit on Friday, January 8, 2010: ABC news here.

On Friday, January 8, 2010, Hillary Clinton and Gheit spoke with each other.  The U.S. Department of State has provided video before the meeting: Department of State here.

On Saturday, January 9, 2010, NPR spoke with Gheit about his visit: NPR.org (much thanks to Grant for the links).

This is devastating news, and yet no media is covering it. A stealth jihad on the White House. Remember, during his campaign, I and others were excoriated for using Obama’s middle name. We were accused of implying he was a crypto-Muslim. We could not discuss his background, his Islamic schooling, his ties to Islam. However, I have meticulously documented his Muslim background in my soon-to-be-released book: The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (buy it now).

It became all too clear after his election how proud he was of his Muslim name, background and family. He made this plain when he gave his very first interview to Muslim media and boasted of these things. But bear in mind, it was verboten to speak of such things during the presidential campaign. That was the level of deceit and obfuscation and taqiya.

Al-Tabari’s (d. 923) famous tafsir (exegesis of the Koran) is a standard and authoritative reference work in the entire Muslim world. Regarding 3:28, he writes: “If you [Muslims] are under their [infidels’] authority, fearing for yourselves, behave loyally to them, with your tongue, while harboring inner animosity for them. … Allah has forbidden believers from being friendly or on intimate terms with the infidels in place of believers — except when infidels are above them [in authority]. In such a scenario, let them act friendly towards them.” Regarding 3:28, Ibn Kathir (d. 1373, second in authority only to Tabari) writes, “Whoever at any time or place fears their [infidels’] evil may protect himself through outward show.” As proof of this, he quotes Muhammad’s close companion, Abu Darda, who said, “Let us smile to the face of some people [non-Muslims] while our hearts curse them”; another companion, al-Hassan, said, “Doing taqiyya is acceptable till the Day of Judgment [i.e., in perpetuity]. Source: “War and Peace – and Deceit – in Islam” by Raymond Ibrahim

Obama is a boldfaced liar. Why? Why lie if you have nothing to hide?

Of course, if Obama believes himself a Muslim, it was taqiya — deception or lies to advance Islam. Which he performed brilliantly during his election: he lied with brazen contempt. And clearly his Islamic Jew-hatred is made painfully clear in his stunning rebuke of Israel.

Is it any wonder that his counter terror adviser speaks arabic, calls Jerusalem al quds and calls jihad a “legitimate tenet of Islam”?

Adul Gheit claimed Obama told the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic issues, like the Health care reform, he would show the Muslim World how to deal with Israel.

The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America

Posted by Pamela Geller on Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 02:09 PM | Permalink

Listen to the words of a young Egyptian leader – one of millions – protesting the Muslim Brotherhood:
“We are very critical of the Obama Administration because they have been supporting the Brotherhood like no one has ever supported them.”
He went on:
“If it wasn’t for the American support this president would have fallen months ago.”
Our own government has been propping up jihadists.
Our own government has been reinforcing Egypt’s army with taxpayer money even as it cuts our own army to the bone. Before President Obama leaves office, the Egyptian army will likely be larger than America’s.
This is inexcusable. We are approaching 200,000 signatures on our petition to sequester the Muslim Brotherhood. We need your voice:

YOUR FREE SPEECH IS AT RISK:

Egyptian Magazine: Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrates Obama Administration

by John Rossomando • Jan 3, 2013 at 1:10 pm
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.

Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, which the magazine identifies as a Brotherhood “subsidiary.” It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the “file of Islamic states” in the White House and that he provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.

Elibiary, who has endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb, may have leaked secret materials contained in Department of Homeland Security databases, according to the magazine. He, however, denies having any connection with the Brotherhood.

Elibiary also played a role in defining the Obama administration’s counterterrorism strategy, and the magazine asserts that Elibiary wrote the speech Obama gave when he told former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave power but offers no source or evidence for the claim.

According to Rose El-Youssef, Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that it says comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi.

He also participated in the organizing committee of the Critical Islamic Reflection along with important figures of the American Muslim Brotherhood such as Jamal Barzinji, Hisham al-Talib and Yaqub Mirza.

Regarding al-Marayati, who has been among the most influential Muslim American leaders in recent years, the magazine draws connections between MPAC in the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure.

Magid heads ISNA, which was founded by Brotherhood members, was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security. The magazine says that has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI.

Rose El-Youssef says Patel maintains a close relationship with Hani Ramadan, the grandson of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, which it identifies as “a large Brotherhood organization.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD:

Obama To Egyptian Christians: Stop Protesting Muslim Brotherhood
564 Comments
1.4K

As millions of Egyptians take to the streets in protest against President and co-conspirator in the Benghazi attacks Mohamed Morsi, one American journalist has already been killed and no doubt there is much we are not being told. However, American supporter of terrorism Barack Obama, via U.S Ambassador Anne Patterson, has told Egyptian Christians to not engage in protesting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. This comes on the heels of him sending US troops to Egypt to quash protests against the Muslim Brotherhood.
FrontPage Mag reports:
As Egyptians of all factions prepare to demonstrate in mass against the Muslim Brotherhood and President Morsi’s rule on June 30, the latter has been trying to reduce their numbers, which some predict will be in the millions and eclipse the Tahrir protests that earlier ousted Mubarak. Among other influential Egyptians, Morsi recently called on Coptic Christian Pope Tawadros II to urge his flock, Egypt’s millions of Christians, not to join the June 30 protests.

While that may be expected, more troubling is that the U.S. ambassador to Egypt is also trying to prevent Egyptians from protesting—including the Copts. The June 18th edition of Sadi al-Balad reports that lawyer Ramses Naggar, the Coptic Church’s legal counsel, said that during Patterson’s June 17 meeting with Pope Tawadros, she “asked him to urge the Copts not to participate” in the demonstrations against Morsi and the Brotherhood.

The Pope politely informed her that his spiritual authority over the Copts does not extend to political matters.

Regardless, many Egyptian activists are condemning Patterson for flagrantly behaving like the Muslim Brotherhood’s stooge. Leading opposition activist Shady el-Ghazali Harb said Patterson showed “blatant bias” in favor of Morsi and the Brotherhood, adding that her remarks had earned the U.S. administration “the enmity of the Egyptian people.” Coptic activists like George Ishaq openly told Patterson to “shut up and mind your own business.” And Christian business tycoon Naguib Sawiris—no stranger to Islamist hostility—posted a message on his Twitter account addressed to the ambassador saying “Bless us with your silence.”
Morsi has already attempted to promote himself as the new Pharaoh of Egypt, but that was quickly brought to a halt.
Of course, the Obama administration is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood and has welcomed them into the White House on many occasions, as well as funded them in Egypt with millions of dollars, aircraft and u-boats. His own State Department has even sought to recruit jihadists who are partial to the Muslim Brotherhood at conferences.
Egypt is the United States enemy and that’s not what I’m saying, it’s what their own politicians are saying, as evidenced by Magdi Ahmad Hussein, chairman of the Islamic Labor Party, when he was caught on a hot mic saying just that.
Raymond Ibrahim, who broke the story on Libyan intelligence confirming that Morsi was involved in the Benghazi attacks, writes that “under Morsi’s rule, the persecution of Copts has practically been legalized, as unprecedented numbers of Christians—men, women, and children—have been arrested, often receiving more than double the maximum prison sentence, under the accusation that they “blasphemed” Islam and/or its prophet. It was also under Morsi’s reign that another unprecedented scandal occurred: the St. Mark Cathedral—holiest site of Coptic Christianity and headquarters to the Pope Tawadros himself—was besieged in broad daylight by Islamic rioters. When security came, they too joined in the attack on the cathedral. And the targeting of Christian children—for abduction, ransom, rape, and/or forced conversion—has also reached unprecedented levels under Morsi.”
The ones who truly have concerns of legitimate human rights in Egypt are the Coptic Christians under the current Muslim Brotherhood led regime and here is the United States, in the person of Ambassador Patterson. She’s calling on them not to stand up to the regime.
Americans should not be silent in the face of the Islamic threat here in America either. We already know these savages have infiltrated some of the highest positions of power in our own government, including these positions:
Arif Alikhan – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Mohammed Elibiary – Homeland Security Adviser.

Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the (OIC) Organization of the Islamic Conference.

Salam al-Marayati – Obama Adviser, founder of Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director.

Imam Mohamed Magid – Obama’s Sharia Czar, Islamic Society of North America.

Eboo Patel – Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
Our own head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), John Brennan, is a Muslim convert.
In other words, in keeping with Barack Obama’s shady Muslim history, when it comes to Islamist raping, engaging in cannibalism, attacking innocent Christians and Jews, waging jihad on various world leaders and societies, the Obama administration gives them a thumbs up. Islamists have a supremacy complex. They think non-Muslims are their servants and nothing but chattel and as a result they need to be removed from any power, including Egypt and the United States government.

Allen West “The Obama administration is indeed aiding, enabling, and abetting our enemy, radical Islamic jihadists”

JIHAD

by Allen West

“What kind of country have we become when we allow Islamic organizations with ties to theMuslim Brotherhood to ruin the career of an Army officer with 6 combat deployments, decorated for Valor? The fact that these groups went to now CIA Director John Brennan with their complaint when he was our counter-terrorism adviser warrants investigation. We are giving domestic Islamic jihadists welfare. We cease interrogations of domestic Islamic jihadists to read them Miranda rights. We are calling treasonous domestic Islamic jihadists perpetrators of “workplace violence.” The Attorney General is lecturing Americans about reprisals. Enough! I believe this Obama administration is indeed aiding, enabling, and abetting our enemy, radical Islamic jihadists. The evidence is certainly mounting and I am sick of the progressive socialists who just want to excuse this away and try to silence us as “Islamophobes.” You progressives are all complicit in this as well! I want Lt. Col. Dooley back on the list for consideration of Battalion Command, anyone not agreeing is in the camp of the enemy. Read and share this article. Call and write the Secretary of the Army, Chief of Staff of the Army, Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and President Obama…ask them whose doggone side are they on?”

What good could possibly come from welcoming a radical Muslim cleric to the White House who has exhorted Muslim countries to provide military aid to Palestinian terrorist groups?    ACT FOR AMERICA.ORG


Bin Bayyah Statements Underscore Support for Terrorism

by John Rossomando
IPT News
July 12, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4082/bin-bayyah-statements-underscore-support-for

 


Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah posted this photo of his June 13 White House meeting.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism has uncovered evidence that radical Muslim cleric Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah, who met withtop White House officials last month, personally urged Muslim nations to aid the Palestinian terrorist groups in Gaza militarily.

“Muslim rulers are required to rescue their fellow Muslims in many ways, through financial, military and diplomatic support. Everything should be done to stop this terrible, ongoing massacre in Gaza,” Bin Bayyah wrote in April. The posting was removed following the release of IPT’s June 26 report about Bin Bayyah’s White House visit. “I also call upon our Palestinian brothers to unite all resistance movements in the same name and under the same banner. And it is the duty of all Arabs to help them in the name of Islam, logic, pan-Arabism and humanity.”

The comment lines up with the position of the International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS), headed by Sheik Yusuf Qaradawi. Bin Bayyah has been its vice president for 9 years. The group notably issued a December 2012 communiqué praising Hamas’s “strategic victory … in the dignified Gaza” and calling for Israel’s destruction.

Bin Bayyah notably declared that Palestinian terrorists have the right to all “kinds of resistance, including the use of weapons.”

The sheikh issued a fatwa on January 19, 2012 stating that Muslims could satisfy their zakat obligations by giving their money to “fighters in the cause of Allah” (those undertaking a military jihad) to “buy weapons.”

“He … avoids any specifics at all, giving the reader the room to use his opinion to finance causes like Hamas, Hizballah, or other radical Islamists,” Zuhdi Jasser, president of theAmerican Islamic Forum for Democracy, said.

Islamic charities such as the Holy Land Foundation and others have notably been convicted of laundering zakat donations to fund Hamas or other terror groups.

Bin Bayyah also condemned the linking of Islamic charities with terrorism, calling it “sham propaganda.”

White House officials justified meeting with him on June 13 because he denounced al-Qaida in 2010 and because of work he did with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. After the IPT reported on his visit, a spokesperson told The Daily Caller that the White House invited him to tackle “a wide range of issues including poverty, global health efforts and Bin Bayyah’s efforts to counter the al Qaeda narrative.”

“Bin Bayyah may be anti-Al Qaida because he is against the targeting of what he defines as civilians. He simply detests ‘freelance jihadists’ or ‘jihadi-anarchists’ preferring more ordered Islamist statists within his Salafi circles,” Jasser said. “These quotes [about Palestinian terrorists] in essence reveal that he may disagree with the means and authority Al-Qaida may use but in fact the ends of a global neo-Caliphate and Islamist hegemony he clearly promotes.

“Here, he clearly endorses the adoption of all militant causes initiated by what he deems to be legitimate Islamist grievance movements from across the world.”

The White House did not respond to repeated IPT requests for comment.

Additionally, the administration has not addressed any questions related to Bin Bayyah’s support for Hamas. It has also been silent about criticism of its reaching out to the IUMS in the light of the group’s calls for Israel’s destruction, and its 2004 call for the killing of U.S. troops in Iraq. Qaradawi, the IUMS’s founder, is considered so radical he has been barred from entering the United States.

Hosting Bin Bayyah in the White House was a mistake, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, told the IPT.

“The Obama administration sends a strong message whenever they accept or facilitate meetings with foreign leaders or officials,” McCaul said in an emailed statement. “The administration’s narrative of the terror threat decreasing does not mirror the reality that al Qaeda and Islamist extremism is still a growing threat to the homeland, and the actions of officials in the White House should reflect that reality.”

Inviting Bin Bayyah to the White House reveals an ideologically-motivated “tone deafness to what constitutes a radical,” Jasser said.

Although Bin Bayyah has stated his opposition to Al-Qaida’s tactics for creating a global Caliphate, his writings show that he supports the idea of Muslims being united under a single flag defended by a single army.

“[T]he basic principle is that the [Muslim people] ought to be under one banner and one ruler. This is the basic principle prescribed by Islam. But the status quo shows that the ummah has been disunited for a long time, its enemies have grown significantly, and its magnificence has declined,” Bin Bayyah wrote in a January 2012 fatwa on his website. “The ummah should have one army to protect it. It needs no foreign armies or interference in any form.”

Bin Bayyah suggests that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) gives hope for pan-Islamic unity and a united federation. He blames a “fierce campaign launched by the enemies of the ummah” through colonialism, efforts to spread democracy and “regaining Jerusalem through crusade” efforts for lack of Muslim unity. The OIC Charter guarantees the Palestinians’ right to replace Israel with a state of their own that has Jerusalem as its capital.

“Bin Bayyah here obviously reveals that he not only believes in the dominance of the Islamic state but he thus through citizenship links every Muslim’s faith practice to the military obligations of jihad which scholars like him determine,” Jasser said. “Where does he differ from Sheik Awlaki? It is not clear. We are to assume that ‘scholars’ like him will not take Muslims across the planet into a collective war without ‘just cause’ to ‘rescue their fellow Muslims,’ ‘under one banner’ and thus ‘unite all resistance movements.”

Connecting Islam with terrorism involves a “deliberate negligence of the objective facts,” which stems from “ignorance,” according to Bin Bayyah.

If freedom and democracy on the Middle East was on the White House’s agenda when officials met with the cleric, then the administration should take a closer look at his writings, which show that he considers the Western approach to freedom and democracy un-Islamic.

Bin Bayyah’s view of democracy and free speech is scarcely any different from that shown by the recently deposed Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt that cracked down on dissidentsclaiming they had insulted Islam.

In Bin Bayyah’s view, free speech is subject to the limitations imposed by Islamic sharia law – particularly when it comes to speech and “harmful values in the society.”

And he seemed to criticize the United States in an essay last year when he wrote that “the most boastful countries in terms of democracy are the most aggressive and corrupt countries in the world.”

Bin Bayyah likely approved of the Brotherhood’s March arrest of comedian Bassem Youssef for “insulting Islam.” “Basically, it is definitely prohibited to criticize, mock at, or deride of the right religion and whoever does this bears enormous sin,” Bin Bayyah told the London-basedal-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper in January 2012.

Bin Bayyah rationalizes Palestinian terrorism, criticizes democracy, and supports blasphemy laws and other restrictions on free speech and other basic freedoms. But the White House appears unwilling to criticize or isolate those views. Instead, it ignored his call for Muslim rulers to give military assistance to Palestinian terrorist groups and opened the White House doors to Bin Bayyah and defended his invitation because he said bad things about al-Qaida.
