To those that believe the Moslem Brotherhood is now moderate, is now changed as many western journalists would have you believe, you need look no further than today's Moslem Brotherhood website (June 14 2011). It says that the MB is still true to the ideals of 'Imam al-Banna'. Banna was the man who turned Egyptian nationalism extreme, gave it an islamist and antisemitic twist, who admired and was trained by the nazis, who encouraged muslims to go fight with the nazis in the mufti's Bosnian SS division.
But the message comes through loud and clear, that nothing has changed with the Moslem Brotherhood. This coupled with constant provocations against Israel, the arrest of an israeli tourist as a spy, propaganda about mossad sharks killing tourists in the Red Sea and demonstrations by the April 6th movement calling for the tearing up of the peace treaty with Israel means that the west should be very careful about uncritically supporting the arab spring. There are those who have even called it the 'muslim' spring as despite many brave protester looking to modernise Egypt and the arab world, the sinister Moslem Brotherhood is waiting in the wings, to come to power through the ballot box and take over, as has now happened in Lebanon with the new government, under Hezbollah supported premier Najib Mikati, and previously with Hamas and with the Iranian revolution.
The JCPA gives some background as to the development of extreme ideology in Egypt:
“Until 1936 the moderate Arab forces, which welcomed or at least tolerated Zionism, had in no way been marginalized. This changed after the National Socialists threw their weight behind the Islamists. They successfully spurred on the unrest in Palestine and so contributed to spreading the idea that the Jews were the enemy to Egypt. The Islamist mass mobilization was financially and ideologically supported by Radio Zeesen and other means of propaganda. This was one of the reasons that it was the Islamism and anti-Semitism of Hassan al-Banna rather than the enlightened modernism of Kemal Atatürk that gained general acceptance in the Arab part of the Islamic world.”
Banna also believed in the compulsory nature of aggressive jihad:
All Muslims must make jihad –Jihad is an obligation from Allah on every Muslim and cannot be ignored or evaded.
(The Way of Jihad by Hassan al-Banna, Pg 2)
But Banna preferred to fight the Jihad once the MB had wrested state power from all rivals:
It is Fard (obligatory) on us to fight with our enemies. The Imam must send a military expedition to the Dar al-Harb (land of war) every year at least once or twice, and the people must support him in this
(The Way of Jihad by Hassan al-Banna, Pg 8, Prelude Ltd, 1997)
To get to power Banna was even prepared to ally with the likes of the Nazis.
Banna’s ideology and the Nazi ideology were quite similar. .
The Nazis wanted to create an expansionist empire with a Fuhrer at its head; Banna wanted a Caliphate with a religious leader at its head. In the 30s and 40s the MB worked tirelessly to propagate Nazi propaganda in the Middle East. Members of the MB translated Hitler’s book ‘Mein Kampf’ into Arabic, calling it ‘My jihad’ and they also propagated the notorious anti-Semitic forgery ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’.
At the outbreak of WW2 Banna also appealed to Nazi Germany for help in fighting against the British backed monarchy in Egypt. MB even helped spy on the movement of British troops for the Nazis. The Nazi party’s ascent to power through exploiting democratic means inspired Banna to similarly use democracy as a tool to take power. The best known Nazi sympathiser in the Muslim brotherhood was Banna’s friend Hajj al-Amin Housseni who worked to propagate Nazi propaganda. Housseni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, instigated riots against the Jews in 1929 (which destroyed the 3000-year old Jewish community in Hebron) and again in 1936 before visiting Nazi Germany in 1941. The founder of Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) Taqiuddin al-Nabhani , who, prior to establishing HT was involved with the MB, also associated with Housseni.
Another prominent member of the Muslim brotherhood was Syed Qutb. Qutb’s books, especially ‘Milestones’ and ‘Social Justice in Islam’ played a key part in formulating Islamism’s violent ideology. Qutb also wrote an essay called “Our struggle against the Jews” in which he condemns the Jews as being the root of all evil. Although he was executed in1966, his works continue to be a source of inspiration for militant Islamist movements like al-Qaeda
And so to today's offering from the website of the MB. Hardly moderate.
The translation of excerpts from the Mohhamed Badie the leader of the Moslem Brotherhood is stilted as it was translated using google (translate.google.com).
But the antisemitism and hatred of western civilisation is all too clear.
And this group might be in the future government of Egypt?
Time to be rethinking that $20billion aid package Mr Obama. Oh sorry, you've already said that the aid will be delivered no matter what the make up of the next government is. American voters take notice.
