What the Muslim Brothers Want
ny times ^ | 2/10/11 | essam el-errian

Posted on 02/10/2011 8:59:50 AM PST by Nachum

THE Egyptian people have spoken, and we have spoken emphatically. In two weeks of peaceful demonstrations we have persistently demanded liberation and democracy. It was groups of brave, sincere Egyptians who initiated this moment of historical opportunity on Jan. 25, and the Muslim Brotherhood is committed to joining the national effort toward reform and progress.

In more than eight decades of activism, the Muslim Brotherhood has consistently promoted an agenda of gradual reform. Our principles, clearly stated since the inception of the movement in 1928, affirm an unequivocal position against violence. For the past 30 years we have posed, peacefully, the greatest challenge to the ruling National Democratic Party of Hosni Mubarak, while advocating for the disenfranchised classes in resistance to an oppressive regime.

We have repeatedly tried to engage with the political system, yet these efforts have been largely rejected based on the assertion that the Muslim Brotherhood is a banned organization, and has been since 1954. It is seldom mentioned, however, that the Egyptian Administrative Court in June 1992 stated that there was no legal basis for the group’s dissolution.

Yes, starting immediately after murdering the former president.

No extra credit for you.

"In two weeks of peaceful demonstrations we have persistently demanded liberation and democracy."

So if the TEA Party did this, Zer0 would go?

Just as I figured. The Slimes disable comments on propaganda pieces like this.

This is a candy coated, self-serving, one sided fluff piece if ever there was one.

What the Muslim Brothers Want:

Egypt, the whole Middle East, including Israel, and then the world.

What do they want? A caliphate. Nothing less.

This is a profoundly dangerous group.

Do you repudiate this:

that jihad is Islam's most important tool in effecting a gradual takeover, beginning with the Muslim countries, moving on to reestablishing the Caliphate over three continents in preparation for a conquest of the West, and finally instituting a global Islamic state

We will see these lies repeated over and over by the media and by 0dumbo to gin up support for the “benign” MB.

Thank you for posting
the more who know and understand what the MB actually is the greater our chance to minimize them

The NY Times said that Fidel Castro was a Democratic reformer, back in the day. They enthusiastically supported his revolution.

And back even further, they published article after article about good old Joe Stalin, who was such a nice guy. What, Uncle Joe starve Ukrainians? Never!

I’m not sure that this time what they are supporting isn’t even worse and more dangerous. A little crazy leftism is bad enough, but this is willful destruction of our country and of western civilization. Do they have any idea what will happen to them if sharia law comes to New York?

"Secular liberal democracy of the American and European variety, with its firm rejection of religion in public life, is not the exclusive model for a legitimate democracy."

The only line from the article that we really need to know about the Muslim Brotherhood. I'll give the guy props, though he may whitewash it, he's not lying about what he wants. A caliphate...

Islamist socialism, the same as black liberation theology.

Posing as "peaceful" muzzies(wink-wink), they would like gradual reforms, rapidly taking the population totally backwards to the 12th Century.

No, they never do. Nor do Libs and Lefties realize that they’ll be the first to be beheaded as the wickedest of the “Infidels”.

Oh, I forgot - they’ll probably be willing converts.

Liberals are helping the moslum brotherhood take over Egypt. They will act surprised and deny their actions when the brotherhood shows its terrorist side. Liberals have always been useful idiots.
