The Muslim Brotherhood


The Muslim Brotherhood has recently been thrust into world prominence because of the Egyptian protests. They have actually existed for a long time, and are responsible for the rise of al Qaeda and Hamas. If they are able to take control of the "Arab Spring" that affected Egypt and many other Arab nations, the Egyptians will not gain a true democratic government, but another Islamic Revolution like the one in Iran in 1979, complete with Sharia law and the breaking of the peace treaty with Israel.

Radical Islam has continued to grow. Their aim is to control the world. From a prophetic prospective, a new Islamic caliphate might emerge, affecting not only the Middle East, but also European countries where Muslim culture is becoming predominant. Such a coalition would resemble the old Roman Empire at it's greatest extent, and could be what was predicted in Daniel, chapter 2, where it depicts the final world empire, symbolized by iron [Rome] and clay [Islamic caliphate?]. See Revived Roman Empire.

24 Killed as Egypt Church Protests Turn Violent

Oct. 10, 2011 - In Cairo, Coptic Christians protested the recent burning of a church. When the group marched to Egypt's Radio and Television Building, plainclothes police attacked them. Then the protests spread to Tahrir Square, the focal point of the February revolution. An armored security van sped into the crowd, crushing some protesters to death.
Protesters used firebombs, set army vehicles on fire and battled with security forces in Egypt's most violent clashes since the February uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak as Egypt's president.
At least 24 people have ben killed and more than 200 injured. Dozens of people have been arrested.

In recent weeks Muslim crowds have rioted at two churches in southern Egypt. Officials at one of these churches agreed to a demand that a cross and bells be removed from the church building.

Editor's Note: Some of the media reports mention that Islamic Salafists are the extremists behind this riot. They apparently started the violence but the Christians became the military's target. Meanwhile, the media scarcely mentions the influence of the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, but that radical group is now doing their dirty work through the Salafists. Remember that our own administration tried to tell us that the Musllim Brotherhood wasn't so bad, and that they were a tiny minority during the Egyptian "Arab Spring" protests. Experts in Egyptian affairs now say that Muslim Brotherhood candidates would win if Egyptian elections were held today.

Who is the Muslim Brotherhood?
July 2, 2011

The Muslim Brotherhood's Salafi pact puts Egyptian Christians in great danger

May 13, 2011 - Michael Weiss, a foreign policy expert warns that a new coalition between the Muslim Brotherhood and several Salafi groups, including Jama’a al-Islamiyya, will give the Brotherhood greater political clout, and will lead to persecution of the Coptic Christians in Egypt.

Jama’a al-Islamiyya is the sect that played a role in the assassination of President Anwar Sadat in 1981. It was cited by Ayman al-Zawhiri in 2006 as an affiliate member of al-Qaeda.

...its spiritual leader Omar Abdel-Rahman (a.k.a. the "Blind Sheikh") [was] sentenced for life in the United States for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
This political alliance will undoubtedly lead to persecution of the Coptics in the days ahead. Some of their churches have already been burned down.

Will Muslim Brotherhood succeed where Osama bin Laden failed?

May 11, 2011 - Bestselling author Ayaan Hirsi Ali shows that the Muslim Brotherhood learned the hard way that violence will be met with superior violence by state governments. They changed their tactics to develop a bottom-up movement rather than a commando structure, and are now poised to take control of the Egyptian government. He compares this strategy to that of Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran.
All that Khomeini did before he came to power in Iran was to preach the merits of a society based on Islamic law. He did not engage in terrorism. Yet he and his followers took over Iran.
He explains that if the Muslim Brotherhood succeeds in ruling Egypt, it will depend in part on the willingness of America and her allies to underestimate their ambitions and political skills.

Franklin Graham: World’s Christians in Grave Danger

Mar. 18, 2011 - The Muslim Brotherhood is fomenting much of the rebellion and the deteriorating social order in the Middle East, and here in our country, the Obama administration has enabled their cause. Franklin Graham, son of beloved evangelist Dr. Billy Graham, and founder of The Samaritan’s Purse international charity, complains,
“The Muslim Brotherhood is very strong and active here in our country... We have these people advising our military and State Department. We’ve brought in Muslims to tell us how to make policy toward Muslim countries.
Graham predicts that persecution of Christians in the Middle East will increase dramatically as the Muslim Brotherhood continues to gain strength in countries llike Egypt, Tunisia, and Lebanon.

The Muslim Brotherhood

Feb. 19, 2011 - We all rejoice at the demise of a dictatorship. But important questions need to be answered: “Who will fill the leadership vacuum?” And, “How will the new leadership of Egypt relate to the United States and Israel?”

Apparently, the only organized leadership in Egypt at present is the Muslim Brotherhood. The liberal media and some in our government tell us not to worry about a take-over of Egypt by Islamic Radicals like what happened in Iran in 1979. They say the Muslim Brotherhood only represents about 20% of the people of Egypt, and that their goals are peaceable.

On the contrary, their history and stated objectives tell us that they are dangerous. It was formed in 1928, four years after the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire, and its sole purpose was the resurrection of the Caliphate. Their goal is to restore Islam and Sharia Law in its fullness.

Their graduates include Al Qaeda’s number two leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri who was imprisoned for three years on weapons charges following President Anwar Sadat’s assassination in 1981. They also produced Hamas, the terror network behind suicide bombings and rocket attacks in Israel.

In the midst of the Egyptian protests, Muhammad Ghannem, a leading member of the Brotherhood, said that he would like to see the Egyptian people prepare for war against Israel.

it is likely that the majority of Egyptians will follow The Brotherhood into a new and more disturbing kind of dictatorship.

'Peace treaty with Israel is up to the Egyptian people'

Feb. 19, 2011 - Essam al-Erian, a spokesman for The Muslim Brotherhood, said Friday that the decision of whether or not to keep the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel will be up to the will of the Egyptian people.
The top U.S. intelligence official said this week the Brotherhood probably did not favor the Camp David treaty -- the 1979 accord that made Egypt the first Arab state to make peace with Israel and restored the Sinai to Egyptian control.

Egypt Gets Its Khomeini

Feb. 18, 2011 - On this first Friday after Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak stepped down, hundreds of thousands of Egyptians congregate to celebrate the event. Their Friday prayers speaker of the day is Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the best-known Muslim Brotherhood cleric in the world and one of the most famous Islamist thinkers. He was banned from Egypt during Mubarak's reign. For him to be invited to speak at this point is an implication that he is the spiritual father of their revolution.
Qaradawi, though some in the West view him as a moderate, supports the straight Islamist line: anti-American, anti-Western, wipe Israel off the map, foment Jihad, stone homosexuals, in short the works
The writer, Bary Rubin, who literally wrote the book, The Muslim Brotherhood, says that Qaradawi is the most dangerous revolutionary Islamist in the world, and he is about to unleash the full force of his power and persuasion on Egypt.

The Voice of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood

Feb. 15, 2011 - Muslim televangelist Yusuf al-Qaradawi, known as the "First Global Mufti," is heard via Al-Jazeera television every Sunday on his program, "Shariah and Life." Some 60 million Muslims listen to him explain what the Muslim Brotherhood believes, and even though he calls himself a "moderate," some of his teachings are extreme.

Qaradawi advocates establishing a "United Muslim Nations," which would be a contemporary form of the caliphate.

He hates Israel and would love to take up arms himself. In one of his sermons, he asked God "to kill the Jewish Zionists, every last one of them."
Qaradawi was imprisoned three times by former Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser because of his Islamist activities. He went into exile in Qatar in 1961, and is still living there now.

Muslim Brotherhood text reveals scope of radical creed

Feb. 10, 2011 - The Palestinian Media Watch has translated "The Laws of Da’wa" by Mustafa Mashhur, who headed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt from 1996-2002. The five-volume work advocates the global conquest of Islam by jihad, the struggle against Israel, and the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate.
“The Islamic ummah,” it says, referring to the supranational community of Muslims, “can regain its power and be liberated and assume its rightful position which was intended by Allah, as the most exalted nation among men, as the leaders of humanity.”

“Inside the Mind of the Muslim Brotherhood” — By Walid Shoebat

Feb. 2, 2011 - Walid Shoebat, who used to be a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, warns that they are dangerous extremists. He points to the meaning of the single Arabic word that appears on the Egyptian based Muslim Brotherhood’s logo, under the sign of the two swords, the symbol of Islamic Jihad. It is the word “Prepare,” which he says actually comes from the Quranic verse:
“Prepare against them as you are able of force and cavalry to terrorize Allah’s enemy and yours…” (Al-Anfal:60)
Walid explains that the Muslim Brotherhood was created in 1928, four years after the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire, and its sole purpose was the resurrection of the Caliphate.

The Muslim Brotherhood, The Illuminati, and Terrorism

Israeli foreign minister compares Turkey to 1979 Iran

Jan. 6, 2010 - Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman voiced his concern that the Islamist-rooted government in Turkey has suddenly turned against Israel like Iran did in 1979. He said,
"Unfortunately, recent events in Turkey are reminiscent of Iran before the Islamic Revolution led by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Like Turkey, Iran was among Israel's closest allies and the two nations held good relations between both governments and people."
