Teach me. What is the difference between Salafists and MB?
I need to know more about them.
I put out the previous bit as a teaser to see if anyone can prove, disprove, or otherwise think their way through what appears to be support from the Administration of Islamists.
You seem well informed. Teach me.

The main difference is mostly about the means to get to the Caliphate. The Salafis adhere to a political theology that views muslims in the West as migrants in enemy territory, a realm they speak of as Dar al-Kufr (House of the Heathen) or Dar Al-Harb (House of War) as opposed to Dar al-Islam. Salafis openly espouse violent jihad to actualize the Caliphate in Europe and North America, whereas the Muslim Brotherhood concentrates on non-violent activities, believing that violent jihad in the West should be postponed until the day when their demographic numbers will be sufficient enough for a full-spectrum offensive against the infidels.
That difference is irrelevant in Gaza and Iraq, for instance, where both Salafis and the Muslim Brotherhood embrace suicide-bombings and other forms of satanic violence.
That being said, it can be more complicated than that. I mean -- many Salafists in Syria despise both al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood... More details here.
