Muslim Brotherhood



Don’t get your hopes up, Obama is doing his best to help them along.


Then there’s this problem with MB infiltration of the US government and its institutions. The U.S. has a terrible time in weeding out the commie socialists, I can just imagine the difficulty in doing the same to an organization that can cry racial discrimination at the drop of a hat and get every major news org running to its aid.


Few people know that the Muslim Brotherhood organization had always been banned in Egypt since 1948. After several assassinations and bombings which took the lives of several prime ministers, judges and even disavowed members of the Brotherhood itself. The long list included Ahmed Maher, al-Nokrashy, al-Khazendar and Fayez Halawa. In 1954, the Brotherhood made an attempt on Gamal Abdel Nasser, then Egypt’s prime minister. Following that, many of the Brotherhood leaders were arrested and received long prison and even death sentences. In the 1970s, Sadat allowed the Brotherhood and Islamists to regroup in an effort to use them against Nasserists and socialists as the group had been used in the 1940s, against communism. It was ironic for Sadat to be killed at the hands of Islamists in 1981. Most Islamist terrorist organizations that  exist in the world today are spin-offs of the Brotherhood which was never legally resurrected since the 1950s. In Egypt, the Brotherhood started again to operate as a clandestine organization owning businesses, manipulating unions and syndicates, operating charities often linked to mosques and also having its own militias. Money poured from local and overseas operations which the Brotherhood had in 80 countries. Despite having no legal political party, the Brotherhood was allowed by the Mubarak regime to field candidates in parliamentary elections since 1983. In 2005, it managed to get around 20% of the seats.

  1. It depends on what you want.

    If one wishes that Egypt and its people have reasonably good economy, working institutions and army, and thus a real strategic threat, then a benevolent dictatorship is the best.

    If OTH, one wishes to punish Muslims (Egyptian Muslims in particular) for 9/11, then the West should support the MB. The MB will destroy the economy, divide society, destroy all institutions except the mosque. Egypt will no longer be a threat to anyone. The MB will also discredit political Islam for many Muslims.
