Muslim Brotherhood Declares Jihad on America; America Declares Muslim Brotherhood is Moderate

By Barry Rubin -“The best thing I can do for you to understand the Muslim Brotherhood is to ask you to read what I wrote last October 7. In that article I asked whether the United States would notice that the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, through its leader, declared Jihad on America. At the end of the article I noted that an Egyptian friend said I was the only one who noticed outside of the country.

Here’s the key quote:

The United States is ‘experiencing the beginning of its end and is heading towards its demise….Resistance is the only solution…. The United States cannot impose an agreement upon the Palestinians, despite all the means and power at its disposal. [Today] it is withdrawing from Iraq, defeated and wounded, and it is also on the verge of withdrawing from Afghanistan. [All] its warplanes, missiles and modern military technology were defeated by the will of the peoples, as long as [these peoples] insisted on resistance – and the wars of Lebanon and Gaza, which were not so long ago, [are proof of this].’

And here’s what the previous supreme guide, Mahdi Akef, said:

“Question: Regarding resistance and jihad…do you consider Osama Bin Laden a terrorist or an Islamic Mujahid [a holy warrior, literally someone who wages jihad]?

“Akef: Certainly, a mujahid, and I have no doubt in his sincerity in resisting the occupation, drawing closer to God Almighty.”

What I never imagined is that 3.5 months later people would be claiming — in contradiction to every Muslim Brotherhood speech and writing (in Arabic) — that the Muslim Brotherhood is some harmless nonviolent reform group. Read more…
