The Muslim Brotherhood Headed for a Blow-up

A few years ago Qatar had a “honeymoon” with the Iranian regime, and it is important to watch for the possibility that Qatar will return to the Iranian bosom. This sort of thing could occur if the White House continues its policy of appeasement toward the Iranian regime. In that case the Gulf states – and especially Qatar – might conclude that the United States is too weak to depend on, and it will bet on the winning horse in the Middle East. This matter is, of course, connected with events in Syria, because if Asad wins the war, the Iranians will come out on top, and the Sunni world, under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood will be dealt a mortal blow.

Israel must monitor the developments closely and be ready to take the necessary steps to safeguard its security vigorously and dispassionately. The region is closer than ever to a many-layered and many-sided crisis because there are too many centers of tension that neither Israel nor the West can influence. The Arab and Islamic world is headed for an explosion, and Israel must defend itself from the shrapnel that will fly in every direction.

    Thank you, Dr. Kedar, for a fascinating article. I hope you're right that the Brotherhood and Morsi are headed for a fall.

    I'd like to hear more about Obama's direct role in rigging the election that brought Morsi to power.

  3. It amazes me how the slightest difference of beliefs among the various Islamic sects motivates each sect to kill the others. There are 38,000 different Christian denominations. Can you imagine if each one of those did the same as the Islamic sects? It is true that in the beginning non- Christians or heretics would be tortured and executed and even Christians with differing beliefs like the Gnostics suffered the same fate as those heretics.

    Hope they all stick their head where the sun don't shine with a stick of explosives in their lying mouths and will be buried on the mountains of Israel and may they rot in hell.

  5. This is the best news I've heard in recent weeks, fight the devil from the inside. As for Russia pulling out of Med, she cannot deal with Iran whilst she is still and ally of Syria. With the demise of the Muslim Brotherhood, engaging Iran via Russia and possible China with Israel playing her part. My greatest hope is we will finally get civilization in the Middle East and democracy – will be nasty for a few months but the end game will be worth the fight.
