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 Hamas and assisted the growth of al Qaeda. 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.

Nov. 23, 2012 - Just one day after the U.S. and most of the world hailed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi for his role in obtaining a cease-fire between Israel and Palestinians, he issued a decree that exempts all his decisions from legal challenge until a new parliament is elected.
"Morsi a 'temporary' dictator," was the headline in the independent daily Al-Masry Al-Youm and hundreds of protesters in Tahrir Square, the heart of the 2011 anti-Mubarak uprising, demanded Morsi quit, accusing him of launching a "coup".
Demonstrators called him a new "pharaoh" and another Mubarak. Some protestors stormed the Muslim Brotherhood HQ in Alexandria, and others demonstrated in Cairo's Tahrir Square after he seized new powers.

Syria's Muslim Brotherhood waiting in the wings

July 30, 2012 - As fighting intensifies in Syria, President Bashar Assad is losing his grip on power. Starting a weeklong trip to the Middle East and North Africa, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said,
"If they continue this kind of tragic attack on their own people in Aleppo, I think it ultimately will be a nail in Assad's own coffin... It's no longer a question of whether he's coming to an end, it's when."
If and when Bashar does fall, the question arises, "Who will assume the leadership of the country." Syria's Muslim Brotherhood is a likely contender to assume power. It holds the largest number of seats in the Syrian National Council(SNC), which has led the revolution. Mulhem al-Droubi, a spokesman for the group told the AFP news agency, "We have plans for the economy, the courts, politics."

Could Egypt’s Military Still Accept a Muslim Brotherhood President?

June 22, 2012 - Analysis of the power and plans of Egypt's military indicate that the military junta will maintain real control over the nation, but may be williing to let the Muslim Brotherhood hold elected positions as long as they can keep them from ultimate power.
The delay in announcing the election result suggests that the junta’s mind may not be made up. But the issue is one of tactics; the military has left no doubt that it has no intention of handing genuine political authority to elected civilians.

Is this what saves Egypt from Islamism?

April 15, 2012 - During the Arab Spring protests in Egypt, the people were opposed to President Mubarak, but respected the Egyptian military. Immediately after the protests the Muslim Brotherhood expanded its influence considerably, and has gradually convinced many Egyptians to support them.
Now that the Brotherhood has nominated Khairat al-Shater to be its presidential candidate, the military has put up its own candidate, Omar Suleiman, the former spy chief to ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
The candidacy of Suleiman, who is 75, came as a surprise to the Brotherhood, and there is concern that if he does not win the elections the military may stage a coup to overthrow the newly elected president, and in that case, it would lead to a bloody civil war. On the other hand, if Suleiman wins it might keep the country from becoming radically Islamic.

Radical Islam aiming at United Arab Emirates?

Mar. 17, 2012 - Serious tension is building between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Muslim Brotherhood. When the UAE government revoked the residency permits of dozens of Syrians who were protesting their home country's regime, Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, a Muslim Brotherhood cleric, (and an opponent of the Syrian regime) harshly condemned the UAE action. This, in turn, led Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim, the chief of the Dubai police force, to tweet that he would issue an international arrest warrant for Qaradawi.
Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan responded that if an arrest warrant was issued against Qaradawi, “not only the Muslim Brotherhood will act, but the entire Muslim world will act against the Emirates.”

Muslim Brotherhood Picks Egypt's House Speaker; Attacks on Christians Inevitable?

Jan. 18, ,2012 - The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) is expecting to take more than 40 percent of the 498 elected seats in the Egyptian assembly's lower house, and other Islamists will take another 20 percent. The legislative body has nominated Mohamed Saad al-Katatni, Secretary-General of the FJP party, as speaker of the house.

Attacks against Christians have increased greatly since the overthrow of President Mubarak, and observers fear that the new control by the Muslim Brotherhood will cause an increase in this violence.

A number of world leaders, including President Obama and Pope Benedict XVI, have expressed serious concern about the dramatic upsurge in attacks against that nation‘s largest religious minority, the Coptic Orthodox Christian community.
