Just What Is The Muslim Brotherhood?
Fox News ^ | 1/31/2011 | Fox News/Catherine Herridge

Posted on 01/31/2011 11:13:06 PM PST by ErnstStavroBlofeld

While analysts ask who or what is behind the sustained protests in Egypt, one group is now seeking political legitimacy.

Technically banned under Egypt's constitution that forbids religious based parties, the Muslim Brotherhood is now throwing its support behind Mohammed el Baradei as an opposition leader.

But many fear that if Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak goes, the real replacement will be either the Muslim Brotherhood itself, or an Islamic fundamentalist group. El Baradei insisted on Sunday talk shows that the fear was unwarranted.

“This is total bogus that the Muslim Brotherhood are religiously conservative,” El Baradei told ABC’s “This Week.” “They are no way extremists. They are no way using violence.”

But critics point out that the Brotherhood, which was established in Egypt in the 1920's, is synonymous with political Islam which supports the use of Islamic law known as Sharia.

You know...I don't want to understand, find out about, or otherwise analyze anything about these freakin’ barbarians. As the saying goes: Everything I needed to know about Islam, I learned on 9/11.

They're animals and it doesn't matter what each group is called, the goal is the same: to obliterate Israel and annihilate the west. While they plan our destruction, we try to 'understand'.

I agree with you. If the Muslim Brotherhood comes into power, Al Qaeda has a new home.

You’re right, and they are using the kids to gain power.

Iran version 2.0.

Have you heard of the April 6 movement?

Well, dang...I should have known their webpage would have been removed. It was up a couple of days ago, though, and had been updated through Jan. 28th.. I used the google translator, and it was something else.

Here are their FB pages.

Here is an earlier blog in English.

Here’s the marxist view...

http://www.marxist.com/egypt-april-6-strikes-on-facebook.htm

Search the web for April 6, and you will find many more links.

This protest has been in the works for a long time, and the Muslim Brotherhood is coopting it.

I’m beginning to believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is in cahoots with ACORN International, and other unions.

Worthless article. She doesn’t give their history, or quote their motto: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

From what I’ve been able to ascertain, April 6 was courted under Bush.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2665250/posts

For a little more info, read my above post on this thread.

I wish I knew what was really going on, but it appears to me that the April 6 movement is a bunch of freedom loving people, and the dark side is trying to get ahold of them.

I tinks she says something along the lines of I dont know... what is it? ... and subsequently quotes O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institute as saying they are not known for violence.
Phares earlier suggests studies indicate that the group is not secular and not moderate.

HE also suggests they are the mothership and the basis for all the offshoots and jihadists.

So.... these are probably the nice clean , politically correct fronts, the gentle smiling guys who appear , and, dissapear once the proxies show up for the violent jihadist activities/ for them? Festivities.

Not too unlike the old Afrikaner Broederbond [ Brotherhood ] in the sense that they dress themselves up in so called “nationalist” [ or in this case Islamist / Islamic ] garb while working to sell out its constituents & tethered to the very forces they claim to oppose. Just another elite controlled group.

The Muslim Brotherhood are the people who are going to stop the other Muslims from enslaving or killing you if they should ever gain power...

“generation after generation of INBREEDING (emph.) has brought them to this”

Ding-Ding-Ding! We have a winner, folks!

There needs to be much, much more discussion about the love that dare not speak its name in the Muslim world. Face it, folks, what muzzies do to goats doesn’t really affect their human output, there’s a far worse practice that does.
