The Muslim Brotherhood: Victims of Arab Mockery While Being Crushed by Israel
Anal Jihad by the Muslim Brotherhood?
Either Islam has to destroy the Muslim Brotherhood, or the Muslim Brotherhood followers of Hassan al-Banna will destroy Islam with their corrupted and politicized theocratic views. (See more at: http://tsecnetwork.blogspot.ca/2014/06/will-hassan-al-banna-and-muslim.html )
Are we watching the beginning of the end of the Muslim Brotherhood (The Ikhwani) and the descent of violent/radical Islam?
Of all the ideologies that arose from a resurgent Islam in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the virulent combination of politics and religion espoused by Hassan al-Banna may be the most dangerous for Muslims and the rest of the world. The founding of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928 by al-Banna marks the historical point in time where politics meets Salafist religious “beliefs.” This would produce the thinking that would eventually also form al-Qaeda and a host of similar groups. While occasionally lurching towards a more peaceful approach, and having a few members that sought a better solution, the Ikhwani have now slid into a vortex of violence.
The Brutal Mockery
With HAMAS (a Muslim Brotherhood group), being hammered by Israel, the Ikhwani are suffering physically as their infrastructure is destroyed and the people they claim to represent are killed. Worse than the airstrikes from Israel, however, is the brutal mockery coming from Palestine’s Arab and Muslim neighbours.
The outspoken Egyptian cleric Sheikh Mazhar Shahin gained prominence as the “preacher of the revolution” while calling for revolt against former President Hosni Mubarak. Now he is taunting the Muslim Brotherhood on Al-Tahrir TV. He is telling viewers that the Muslim Brotherhood has issued a fatwa (religious ruling) permitting “anal jihad” (homosexual relations) for terrorists far from their wives. He states that this fatwa was put in place to support the ISIS terrorists fighting in Iraq and Syria and added that the Muslim Brotherhood are “a bunch of hopeless and desperate peddlers, who have reached a state of foolishness, stupidity, and filth to the highest imaginable degree.”
Hayah Al Dardiri, a presenter for Egypt Today told viewers that “The Egyptian people know exactly who they are facing, and understand that there is no alternative to employing the Egyptian army to strike terror cells in Gaza and destroy Hamas in a military operation.”
Azza Sami, deputy editor of the Al Ahram newspaper, posted the following on her Facebook page:
Bless you (Israeli Prime Minister) Netanyahu, may Allah make a lot of people like you to destroy Hamas, the base of corruption, treachery and being an agent for the (Muslim) Brotherhood. By Allah, whoever tells me "forbidden (to say this)", I don't know what I'll do. ( See more at: http://tsecnetwork.blogspot.ca/2014/07/egyptian-newspaper-deputy-editor-cheers.html )
Another TV presenter, in a rant that would rival Rick Mercer, stated that HAMAS leader Khaled Mashal was busy waging jihad from Qatar while the people of Gaza were being killed. He added “A real man would be back in Gaza tomorrow morning!”
The government of Egypt has also bragged that it shut down the tunnels between Egypt and the Gaza Strip so no more missiles could be smuggled into the Palestinian Territories and used to attack Israel. To add insult to injury, Kuwait, one of the last Arab states to support the Muslim Brotherhood, has announced that it cannot send 29 million dollars of financial support as no bank will risk the lawsuits if they handle the transactions.
Other Arab states such as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE have remained either silent or offered only words of support for the Palestinian people while refusing to support the Muslim Brotherhood’s HAMAS organization.
Despite all of this, HAMAS has stuck to its most basic Muslim Brotherhood ideology since coming into existence in 1987. No peace and no agreements until the entire region lives under the domination of the Muslim Brotherhood and its Seventh Century salafist culture and politics.
Here in North America, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) was formed by the Muslim Brotherhood. The Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR USA) and its Canadian subsidiary CAIR CAN were formed from the IAP to assist the Muslim Brotherhood in derailing the Oslo Accords and ensuring there would be no possible outbreak of peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
However, a variety of Muslim Brotherhood organizations have been hit hard in Canada recently. The International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy (IRFAN) has lost its charitable status for funding terrorism (HAMAS) and the RCMP is considering criminal charges following raids on their property earlier this year. The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) lost the charitable status for its Development Foundation for funding terrorism. Assem Fadel of London Ontario and his World Islamic Call Society also lost their charitable status after years of bringing Colonel Khaddafi’s “Jihad Fund” money into Canada and then redistributing it to terrorist operations. Senior Ikhwani figures in Canada have repeatedly made the news for their roles in the international Muslim Brotherhood. Hassan Hachimi of Toronto is now the head of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood political bureau while Dr. Wael Haddara of London Ontario was an electoral adviser, political adviser and an alternative replacement leader for the President of Egypt at the UN. Canadian permanent resident Khaled al-Qazzam sits in jail in Egypt after having been the Foreign Secretary of the Egyptian Government under the Muslim Brotherhood.
Perhaps most interesting of all is the unresolved Canadian domestic case of Chiheb Battikh. He is currently sitting in a Quebec jail for his role in a kidnap-for-ransom case of a three year old designed (possibly) to fund a Muslim Brotherhood building project in Montreal.

Are we watching the beginning of the end?
Let us be clear. The Muslim Brotherhood is an international organization that has long demonstrated resiliency in the face of adversity. Many have predicted its demise before, including dictatorial leaders with unlimited powers. Now, however, social media and the 24 hour news cycle appear to be turning on radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood in particular. The violence and brutality of ISIS in Syria and Iraq have shown that Muslims are killing Muslims in the name of distorted, uninformed and disreputable “Islamic” beliefs and many Muslims of all backgrounds are beginning to believe the radicals may eventually destroy Islam rather than save it.
It will be years before the internal violence in Islam sorts itself out and stability is established. However, the mockery of the Muslim Brotherhood by other Muslims while it suffers under the attacks of Israel suggest there may be a faint ray of hope for the future.
