Skip to comments.The Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian Crisis

Will the Obama administration's policy toward Egypt be based on a perception that the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood would be extremely dangerous? Or have they taken the position - voiced in parts of the U.S. foreign policy establishment - that the Brotherhood has become moderate and can be talked to? Initial administration reactions indicate that it does not rule out Muslim Brotherhood participation in a future Egyptian coalition government.
Since January 28, the Muslim Brotherhood's involvement has become more prominent, with its support of Mohamed ElBaradei to lead the opposition forces against the government. In the streets of Cairo, Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators disdainfully call people like ElBaradei "donkeys of the revolution" (hamir al-thawra) - to be used and thenpushed away - a scenario that sees the Muslim Brotherhoodexploit ElBaradei in order to hijack the Egyptian revolution at a later stage.
There has been a great deal of confusion about the Muslim Brotherhood.In the years after it was founded in 1928, it developed a "secret apparatus" that engaged in political terrorism against Egyptian Copts as well as government officials. In December 1948, the Muslim Brotherhood assassinated Egyptian Prime Minister Mahmoud al-Nuqrashi Pasha. It also sought to kill Egyptian leader Abdul Nasser in October 1954.
Former Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammad Akef declared in 2004 his "complete faith that Islam will invade Europe and America." In 2001, the Muslim Brotherhood's publication in London, Risalat al-Ikhwan, featured at the top of its cover page the slogan: "Our Mission: World Domination." This header was changed after 9/11.
The current Supreme Guide, Muhammad Badi', gave a sermon in September 2010 stating that "the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death, just as the enemies pursue life."

In all due respect to Dore Gold, he knows these two positions are both BS.
Obama is showing his true colors as regards islam. He supports the MB and knows full-well that the MB plans to not only seize power in Egypt but to declare war on Israel.
Obama is aligning the U.S. (against the desires of a majority of Americans) against our allies (including most importantly Israel) and in favor of our enemies (including most importantly those who want a fundamental islamic revolution in the ME and the establishment of the Caliphate).
Yes, the MB is extremely dangerous...but not nearly as dangerous as Obama!
Chamberlain's appeasement came through ignorance, naivete, and arrogance.
0's policy with Jihadists isn't appeasement -- it is collaboration.
I have been screaming this for a week to everyone who compares Obama with Carter. Carter was an idiot...Obama is a muslim. And not just a muslim...he is a collaborator, as you say, with the those who want us dead!
Obama is a jihadi!
Dr. Dore Gold
I read his book on Wahhabism (sp?).
It was very well done.
The real downer was that the Ottomans (Turks) ALMOST killed off the
B@$tards but failed to finish them off.
We’re still paying the price for this.
>> In Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood reverses course, agrees to talks on transition
Ha! That’s what I’ve said the Admin should encourage.
BTW, is that a Birth Certificate plastered on that guy’s forehead?
Obozo said he will stall with the muslims if the political winds shift— i wanna see if he does
Great and well placed dig!
The only moderate Muslim is a dead Muslim.
What do you say about moderate Christians?
His FIRST and lengthy public speech as President was - in CAIRO -
His first media interview as President was with = Al Jazeera.
victory lap - 'we have the WH'?
Which, to ask in response to thethirddegree's post, intimates that there are jihardi Christians running around slaughtering people?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
As for me, I worship the one and only true living God who is mighty and powerful enough to conquer death for all those faithful in their belief of Him. His name is Jesus. His kingdom is not of this world.
True followers of Muhammad and his Kuran tolerate no other faith as they seek to conquer the world. Who really wants a virgin filled paradise?
On further consideration, moderate Christians are perhaps the most dangerous. Their naive concept of tolerance as evidenced in the acceptance of “Common Word” empowers Islam.
