The West Misunderstands the Nature of the Muslim Brotherhood – Zvi Mazel
(Daily Alert)

The Muslim Brotherhood’s avowed goal since the creation of the movement in 1928 has been to impose Islamic law, first on Egypt, then the rest of the world, turning it into a Muslim-ruled caliphate. The fall of Hosni Mubarak paved the way for the dream to come true; the Brotherhood won both parliamentary and presidential elections. But instead of dealing with Egypt’s pressing economic and social problems, the Brotherhood made an all-out effort to turn the country into a religious dictatorship.

Barely a year later, President Mohamed Morsi was arrested and the government toppled by the people, aided and abetted by the army. The Brotherhood refused to accept their defeat and launched a series of violent protests, followed by terror operations that have already caused the death of 350 members of the police and military forces. The interim regime first banned their activities and then declared the Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

The U.S. and EU, representing the so-called enlightened world, are turning their back on Egypt, though it is fighting their common enemy, radical Islam. The writer is a former Israeli ambassador to Romania, Egypt and Sweden. (Jerusalem Post)
