- ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood – Mshari Al-Zaydi
The U.S. is fighting the Islamic State (ISIS). However, few people know that the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is a disciple of the Muslim Brotherhood. In a recording recently posted on YouTube, the Brotherhood’s ideologue and cleric Yusuf Al-Qaradawi praises Baghdadi for being a well-known member of the group in his youth.
Before Baghdadi, Osama Bin Laden was the most evil man in the eyes of the U.S. Washington took pride in sending in a team of commandos in 2011 to kill him in Pakistan. But Bin Laden was also once an obedient son of the Brotherhood and a faithful adherent of its ideology. In a recording released by al-Qaeda’s Al-Sahab Foundation in January, al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri said that Bin Laden was indeed a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
In short, all countries, excluding the U.S. and Iran, are beginning to see the true face of the Muslim Brotherhood. (Asharq Alawsat-UK)
