Just What Is The Muslim Brotherhood?

My comments are in blue italics. Just What Is The Muslim Brotherhood?

Catherine Herridge, January 31, 2011

While analysts ask who or what is behind the sustained protests in Egypt, one group is now seeking political legitimacy.

Technically banned under Egypt's constitution that forbids religious based parties, the Muslim Brotherhood is now throwing its support behind Mohammed el Baradei as an opposition leader.
Technically banned? In other words, banned in name only. This will be one of the "democratic" reforms everyone is talking about. Then, it will only be a matter of time before the Muslim Brotherhood is voted into Parliament,...just like Hamas was "democratically" voted in, and former U. S. President George Bush and others were shocked that such a thing would happen.

What did that tell you about the so-called "Palestinians?" And, what will it tell you about the Egyptians, when they "democratically" elect the Muslim Brotherhood into Parliament?

Is there anyone out there who canNOT see the pattern here???
But many fear that if Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak goes, the real replacement will be either the Muslim Brotherhood itself, or an Islamic fundamentalist group. El Baradei insisted on Sunday talk shows that the fear was unwarranted.
Anyone who believes El Baradei is an idiot, or has some kind of financial interest in seeing him get into power,...or both. Remember how "helpful" El Baradei was, inspecting the nuclear facilities? Puh-leaze!
“This is total bogus that the Muslim Brotherhood are religiously conservative,” El Baradei told ABC’s “This Week.” “They are no way extremists. They are no way using violence.” (Read the entire article...)
Gee. I suppose he's right. After all, it is the mainstream Muslim attitude to call for the destruction of Israel and the U. S., right? I guess that makes them "no way extremists,..." in the Muslim world that is.

" way using violence?" What?! Is he blind? Well, I suppose he's just not counting the Brotherhood's affiliates, such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Islamic Movement in Israel. And, of course, Jews who have been murdered, massacred, and otherwise harmed, must not count in his eyes.

Just for starters, here is a snippet from the Wikipedia Muslim Brotherhood entry:

'Abd al-Rahman al-Banna, brother of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, went to Palestine and established the Muslim Brotherhood there in 1935. A local nationalist, Al-Hajj Amin al-Husseini, eventually appointed by the British as Grand Mufti of Jerusalem in hopes of accommodating him, was the leader of the group in Palestine. Another important leader associated with the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine was 'Izz al-Din al-Qassam, an inspiration to Islamists because he had been the first to lead an armed resistance in the name of Palestine against the British in 1935. Under these leaders, many moderate local Arab leaders were assassinated, including King Abdullah I of Jordan, and, from 1921 on, numerous terrorist attacks were perpetrated against Jews, amongst which was the murder of 67 religious Jews, men, women and children, and wounding of many others, in the 1929 Hebron massacre. Al-Hajj Amin al-Husseini led a general uprising against the British from 1936 to 1939; as a Nazi ally he spent the Second World War in Nazi Germany and advocated for and aided their annihilation of the Jews. In 1945, the group established a branch in Jerusalem, and by 1947 twenty-five more branches had sprung up, in towns such as Jaffa, Lod, Haifa, Nablus, and Tulkarm, which total membership between 12,000 to 20,000.

Non-violent, eh?
