The Muslim Brotherhood rose from the ashes of the Ottoman Empire which was dissolved in 1923.Transforming Turkey from the center of the Islamic world into a non-Muslim secular nation did not sit well with the global Muslim community (Ummah). In 1928, the son of a Muslim Imam outside of Cairo named Hassan al Banna created the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim brotherhood has been about in the quad since 1928 and it hasn’t changed its stripes. Basically the mission of the Muslim Brotherhood is (1) to re-establish the Islamic Caliphate, and (2) to implement Sharia (Islamic Law) worldwide. This is to be accomplished in the initial stages by destroying Western civilization from within:
The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
By the late 1940′s the Muslim Brotherhood had grown sufficiently in power to begin implementing its ambitious Allah-given mission. The Brotherhood began by assassinating Egyptian officials, British soldiers and their families, and in December of 1948, a Muslim Brother assassinated Egyptian Prime Minister Mahmud Fahmi al-Nuqrashi.
The Muslim Brotherhood has never looked back. Every Islamic movement, from Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda to Hamas and Hezbollah, and other lovelies from Boko Haram to those as far away as Indonesia, have found their origins and its leaders among the original Brotherhood – backed by Saudi money.
While campaigning Mr. Morsi vowed to turn Egypt into a Caliphate and use Egypt as a power base to expand the Ummah and defeat the degenerate, infidel West.
“The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal,” Morsi said in his election speech before Cairo University students on Saturday night. “Today we can establish Sharia law because our nation will acquire well-being only with Islam and Sharia. The Muslim Brothers and the Freedom and Justice Party will be the conductors of these goals.”
But it is the boilerplate democracy/equal rights talk President Morsi spews forth now for Western ears that Senator Kerry and the Obama administration latch onto. The crumbs President Morsi throws the Obama administration look like pearls of reconciliation and they offer them up as proof of the success of their “smart” diplomacy. No doubt President Morsi will continue to lull the “smart” diplomats with feints towards protecting women’s rights and minority rights and freedom of expression. Meanwhile there will be Sharia creep one burka at a time.
Prejudge, Mr. Kerry? That is more then eighty years of never wavering from their mission. But I’m sure the tiger will change its stripes this time. Meanwhile enjoy your taqyya with Mr. Morsi.
