    Evening Standard ^ | 29 Nov 2011
    The Muslim Brotherhood was today accused of attempting to rig Egypt's election by handing out gifts and food at polling stations in a desperate attempt to win power. the Islamist party, which is expected to secure a large share of the votes, had a strong presence both inside and outside polling stations. Onlookers claimed some Brotherhood groups were allowed to set up tables with laptop computers in order to show "people how to vote". ... The Freedom and Justice Party (Muslim Brotherhood) are the most organised party right now

    Swarms of refugees from Iraq and Syria, along with the rising Muslim Brotherhood, may bring the Arab Spring to Jordan. A growing reality of the nightmare of refugees from Iraq, from the Palestinian Authority (PA) and from Syria swarming across the borders to Jordan, along with the growingly influential Muslim Brotherhood, threaten the kingdom’s stability, researchers report. “Within the Kingdom and across three of its borders, unfolding developments carry far reaching implications for the region in general and Jordan’s stability in particular,” according to Oded Eran of the Institute for National Securities Studies (INSS). King Abdullah faced minor but unusual...

    Sultan Knish ^ | Daniel Greenfield
    In the wake of the latest instability everyone has an opinion on the future of Egypt. But the future of Egypt is the past, not the distant past of its pre-Arab culture, but a repetition of the last century. In a region that has never escaped from the past, history is not a road, it is a circle. Travel far enough along it and you come back to where you were. There was once a time when the UK thought that Egypt and Jordan were the best regional prospects, but instead of becoming Arabic accented versions of Albion, today it...
  • Saudi Journalist: Let’s Just Call It the Muslim Brotherhood Spring, Already

    Saudi journalist Mshari Al-Zaydi wonders in an Al-Arabiya commentary why we don’t dispense with the euphemisms, and call the Arab Spring what it is quickly becoming: the Muslim Brotherhood Spring. That should not have been a surprise, Al-Zaydi notes: Shock is acceptable if one is surprised by something completely unexpected… I recall how many Arab writers at the beginning of this year – the year of the Arab Spring – prophesied that what we were witnessing were uprisings staged by non-political civilians and youth, and claimed that not a single radical or ideological slogan was chanted in Cairo’s Tahrir Square,...

    In "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America," by Mohamed Akram, May 19, 1991, Muslim Brotherhood operatives in the U.S. are told that they "must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions." In "Virginia Senate Candidate Honors Hamas Associate" at FrontPage, October 25, Ryan Mauro discusses yet another American politician...

    With the news that "[i]nfiltration of the federal government by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood is worse than some have warned," it should come as no surprise that while Obama has been courting Muslim Brotherhood operatives, his wife has also gotten into the act. According to the toolkit site, "[t]he Let's Move! initiative, started by First Lady Michelle Obama, has an ambitious national goal of addressing the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today reach a healthy adulthood.

    On a day where we learn that the Obama administration is formally reaching out to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, I have a new report that shows the extent of the Brotherhood's presence right here in America. The Muslim American Society (MAS)--a group whose leaders admit was created by Brotherhood members--is building a very expensive mega-mosque on a quiet residential street in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. Neighbors are up in arms. I was recently on the ground in Brooklyn to talk to them and report on the mosque's Brotherhood connections. Watch my exclusive report by clicking on the viewer below.

    Sobhi Saleh, a top Muslim Brotherhood leader who was elected by Egypt's Supreme Council to be on the constitution amendment committee, recently gave a speech wherein he insisted that Brotherhood men should only marry Brotherhood women, since they are "superior" to other Muslim women in Egypt—and so they can "produce little Brotherhood kids." He also likened Egyptian secularists to atheists (that is, infidels) and referred to Egyptians disagreeing with the Brotherhood as qaum lut, the "People of Lot," the Koran's unflattering appellation for sexually depraved societies.

    Weiner's inlaws tied to Muslim Brotherhood? Are Anthony Weiner's inlaws tied to the Muslim Brotherhood? That's what this report claims (Hat Tip: Sunlight). What has not been validated by western media – which has been confirmed by Arab sources – is that Huma has a brother named Hassan Abedin who is a fellow with the Oxford Centre For Islamic Studies (OCIS). This adds to strong evidence that an extremely reputable British institution has been infiltrated. The OCIS consists of an increasing number of Muslim Brotherhood members who sit on the Board. OCIS has Al-Qaeda godfather, Omar Naseef as well as...

    Obama's Muslim boys in the hood are flexing their muscles in Egypt. Thanks to President Obama. If it's "stolen land" that the murderous, bloodthirsty crybabies are whining about, I'd think twice -- everywhere they are is stolen, if you want to be tehnically and historically accurate. Before Muhammad slaughtered, expelled and annihilated the tribes of Medina, that was Jewish land. How Muslims stole Jewish Property: As Muslims mark 'Nakba Day,' history shows Jews were dispossessed of all their assets after escaping Muslim countries between 1944-1964 As for Hitler's conflict, once again the whitewashers forget the leading role that the grand...

The Muslim Brotherhood said on Saturday it will contest up to half the parliamentary seats in elections scheduled for September. But the group said it will not field a candidate for the position of president in an election due to held after the parliamentary vote.

    The federal government has no strategy to counter the Muslim Brotherhood at home or abroad, according to the chairwoman of the House panel that oversees counterintelligence and terrorism. “The federal government does not have a comprehensive or consistent strategy for dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliated groups in America,” Rep. Sue Wilkins Myrick said during a hearing Wednesday. “Nor does it have a strategy for dealing with the Brotherhood in Egypt or the greater Middle East.” The North Carolina Republican is chairwoman of the House Intelligence subcommittee on terrorism, human intelligence, analysis and counterintelligence. Mrs. Myrick said at...

    As Egypt transitions to democracy, the once-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood is looking to play a more active role in the nation’s political life. In testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Nathan J. Brown explains why the Brotherhood does not pose a security threat to the United States and should be welcomed as a legitimate political actor. U.S. Policy Recommendations: * Recognize the Brotherhood’s political maturity: Despite its radical roots, the Muslim Brotherhood has clearly and consistently renounced violence for decades and is deeply committed to peaceful political change. U.S. policy and rhetoric should reflect this reality. * Support political integration: American...

    Civil War In A Tribal Society We Don't Know By GEORGE F. WILL Posted 03/21/2011 05:45 PM ET The missile strikes that inaugurated America's latest attempt at regime change were launched 29 days before the 50th anniversary of another such — the Bay of Pigs of April 17, 1961. Then the hubris of American planners was proportional to their ignorance of everything relevant, from Cuban sentiment to Cuba's geography. The fiasco was a singularly feckless investment of American power. Does practice make perfect? In today's episode, America has intervened in a civil war in a tribal society, the dynamics of...

    The lack of clarity surrounding the mission ordered by Obama in Libya has triggered criticism from both parties, with Republicans demanding that he clarify its aims and some Democrats insisting that the President was Constitutionally required to seek Congressional authorization before ordering the invasion. Obama has now sent a letter to leaders of Congress defining the mission, in keeping with the War Powers Resolution of 1973 requiring a report to Congress within 48 hours of commencing military action, and it contains rebuttals of both lines of criticism. Obama is taking criticism from the right for failing to articulate “regime change”...

    Despite some skeptics, many Islam watchers report that the Muslim Brotherhood is an extremist group—and no friend of Israel. Now, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is forming a political party called Freedom and Justice. Sa`d al-Katatni has been asked to lead the charge. This is a significant development because it marks the first time in the nearly century-long history of the Muslim Brotherhood that it has successfully organized a political party.

This time, Betsy Liley, a senior vice president for Institutional Giving promised a fictitious front group for the Muslim Brotherhood that NPR could shield their $5 million donation from a government audit, thus making the donation invisible: When a man posing as Ibrahim Kasaam asked, "It sounded like you were saying NPR would be able to shield us from a government audit, is...

    Terror-support group controls most Islamic groups, mosques in America WASHINGTON – Staff investigators with the House and Senate intelligence committees say they are probing the domestic security threat posed by the radical Muslim Brotherhood and, specifically, whether Brotherhood operatives have penetrated the U.S. government. The true nature, ambitions and global reach of the Cairo-based Muslim Brotherhood suddenly have become the focus of debate in Washington, following unrest in Egypt and other parts of the Middle East. As the Muslim Brotherhood threatens to effectively replace Egypt's secular, pro-Western regime, the tentacles of its worldwide jihadist movement have reached deep into the...

    CAIRO - Egypt's long banned Muslim Brotherhood said Tuesday it intends to form a political party once democracy is established, as the country's new military rulers launched a panel of experts to amend the country's constitution enough to allow democratic elections later this year. The panel is to draw up changes at a breakneck pace - within 10 days - to end the monopoly that ousted President Hosni Mubarak's ruling party once held, which it ensured through widespread election rigging. The initial changes may not be enough for many in Egypt calling for the current constitution,
