Brotherhood Rising

Muslim Brotherhood: “The revolution will continue until our demands are met”

Sounds just like the “peace process” – half a century of Arab demands on Israel to  self-destruct without any intention to compromise on anything.

Note his calls for democracy, because he knows the Brotherhood would win any free election, and his statements about how the Brotherhood is keeping a low profile in the demonstrations — a fact that has led some analysts to assume they have no significant popular support. “Muslim Brotherhood’s Rashad al-Bayoumi: ‘The Revolution Will Continue Until Our Demands Are Met,'” from Spiegel Online, February 7 (thanks to Fjordman/JW):

Obama: “It’s important for us not to say our only two options are the Muslim Brotherhood or a suppressed Egyptian people”

What has not emerged, however, is a viable secular opposing group that can stop the Brotherhood from dominating a new government. “Obama downplays Muslim Brotherhood,” from the McClatchy-Tribune News Service, February 6: (JW)

Netanyahu on Egypt: “In a situation of chaos, an organized Islamist body can seize control of a country. It happened in Iran.”

“Egyptians can choose a state with secular reforms. However, there is also another possibility that the Islamists will exploit the situation in order to gain governance over the country and lead it backward.” The Muslim Brotherhood is certainly trying its best to do just that in Egypt.

  1. The Muslim Brotherhood (2010)

    This documentary aired on Norwegian Television, November, 2010 (English subtitles). Is Islam primarily a religious or a political movement? Is Islam, per se, a threat to western culture and political ideals? The documentary includes an interview on the Muslim Brotherhood with Mahdy Akef who was then the top leader of the banned group in Egypt, and with the famous Egyptian thinker-writer Tarek Heggy.

  2. People talk about “moderate” and “extreme” Islam.
    The two words are applied only to politics, and so yes, we have all conceded that Islam is political.
    Even those who are trying to silence us call themselves moderates.
    Even they have conceded that this is about politics, domination, conquest and cultural genocide.
