Brotherhood changes English website to appear moderate
By STEVEN EMERSON
The Muslim Brotherhood seems to be trying to preserve its recently burnished image as a moderate party dedicated to maintaining a modern, secular and just Egypt.
In keeping with this apparent internal strategy, the Brotherhood has removed its explicitly worded bylaws from its English-language website. The bylaws are still available via an archived version of the Web page. The bylaws have long been a source of discussion and debate on the Internet because of the group’s stated intention to create an Islamic state, uniting Muslims around the world, while “building a new basis of human civilization.”
Selected sections read as follows: “E – The need to work on establishing the Islamic State, which seeks to effectively implement the provisions of Islam and its teachings.
“Defend the nation against the internal enemies, try to present the true teachings of Islam and communicate its ideas to the world.
“G – The sincere support for a global cooperation in accordance with the provisions of the Islamic Sharia, which would safeguard the personal rights, freedom of speech for active and constructive participation towards building a new basis of human civilization as is ensured by the overall teachings of Islam.”
The group’s bold and unambiguous calls for re-establishing the Islamic Khalifa have startled many, and have fueled distrust as to its true intentions, despite its current public face.
