CR: The Muslim Brotherhood’s tentacles have expanded to countless countries, including many Western nations. Its offshoots remain prominent from the United States to Somalia. To understand the threat posed by the Muslim Brotherhood, one only needs to analyze its founding charter, current structure, and ideology.
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 to present a fundamentalist alternative to the government of Egypt. Since day one, its leaders have endorsed violent jihad as a means to achieve the end of conquest.
Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna, a revered figure in the fundamentalist Islamic community, once said of his goals: “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.” Al-Banna, who came to admire Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, called on his followers to constantly “prepare for jihad” and be “lovers of death.” more …
Opinion: For 30 years Egypt had peace with Israel under Hosni Mubarak who banned the Muslim Brotherhood in accordance with a deal with the US. From 1975 to the Arab Spring the US handed Egypt 1.3 billion in aid annually, much of which wound up in the pocket of Egypt’s president. Mubarak’s net worth at his death this year is estimated between $40 -70 billion.
It is little wonder that with Barack Obama’s not so stealth hatred of Israel, he chose one of the most anti-Semitic groups in the world, the Muslim Brotherhood, to attend his 2009 Cairo speech. In less than three years, the Middle East was in flames, Mubarak was gone, and the Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi was president of Egypt.
Few knew it at the time, but the Arab Spring was Barack Obama’s carefully crafted Magnum Opus. Once in power the Brotherhood, with Obama/Clinton financial and weapons support, turned the country on it’s proverbial head until Egypt’s popular General al Sisi staged a coup, and arrested and executed Brotherhood operatives.
The Brotherhood motto: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope”, should be all Trump needs to label the group a terror organization, but there is more:
The Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization of al Qaeda, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and and the predecessor to ISIS in the Sinai Peninsula, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis. The primary objective of each group is to kill every last man woman and child in Israel in accordance with their patriarch’s lament:
“So Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him, and Esau said in his heart, “The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then I will kill my brother Jacob.” Genesis 27:41.
