What is the Muslim Brotherhood?

Further, the Muslim Brotherhood serves as the benefactor of Hamas – most Hamas leaders and founders were Muslim Brotherhood members including its founding-father, Sheikh Ahmad Yassin. Hamas has since turned against the Palestinian Authority and ended up seizing the Gaza strip by force in 2006, throwing people who disagreed with it or from Fatah out of the 15th and 18th floors of buildings, and are still torturing and killing people Why would Hamas and its patron, the Muslim Brotherhood, change when dealing with Obama’s administration, especially now that they see themselves as advancing?

The Muslim Brotherhood leaders are not coy about sharing their agenda when speaking in Arabic – at a meeting of the National Defense and Security Committee of the Egyptian Parliament held in January 2007, Muslim Brotherhood parliament member Mohammed Shaker Sanar said the Muslim Brotherhood was not concerned about Western democracy, adding that nothing about the Muslim Brotherhood had changed: “The organization was founded in 1928 to reestablish the Caliphate destroyed by Ataturk [the founder of modern Turkey]….With Allah’s help [the Muslim Brotherhood] will institute the law of Allah.”

In addition to the Muslim Brotherhood’s domination of Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco, should Bashar Assad’s regime fall, the Brotherhood will help itself to a major role in Syria. As the Wall Street Journal notes, the non-Muslim Brotherhood opposition has thus failed to “coalesce into a solid front,” therefore the Muslim Brotherhood might “prove effective amid the power void of Syria’s opposition.” If Assad goes, another country will fall into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Obama administration would do well to reconsider its tolerance toward the Muslim Brotherhood. The administration should start building up and supporting genuinely democratic alternative secular Arab opposition movements, not the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Islam is Democracy!” one [www.JCPA.org; Jonathan Halevi]. The US should also be developing long-term contingency plans to undermine the Muslim Brotherhood’s newfound political power. If not, a future US administration will have to pay for Obama’s connection to the Brotherhood — a radical group that believes in transforming the world to Islam by infiltrating democratic institutions rather than by terrorism — as it keeps moving closer, country by country, to achieving its ultimate goal of reestablishing a Muslim Empire.
