Egyptian Minister Reveals Hamas Aided Brotherhood Prison Break

Jun 12, 2013 12:45 PM PT

As a direct offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas shares a similar ideological outlook and political affinity with its historical patron. Hamas has long been accused of coordinating with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood to kill protesters during the 2011 uprising, yet the Palestinian terrorist organization denies any involvement in Egypt.

Now, judicial sources claim that former Egyptian Interior Minister Mahmoud Wagdy testified that Hamas cooperated with the Muslim Brotherhood to conduct prison breaks during the outbreak of the uprising. A source said that Wagdy testified before the Appellate Court of Ismailia, asserting that Egyptian intelligence "monitored communications between the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas concerning participation in the Friday of Rage (the fourth day of the uprising and the storming of the prisons."

Qatar's Duplicitous Game

May 9, 2013 4:59 PM PT

Sometimes the most stunning deceptions occur in broad daylight. It's the classic ruse of the pathological manipulator; the hugely successful benefactors of a myriad of good causes such as disgraced financial moguls Bernie Madoff and Allen Stanford.

The State of Qatar falls into a similar category. The Arabian Gulf island nation has insinuated its way to the top table of world affairs through financial muscle established on rich natural gas and oil reserves. Qatar has befriended and works closely with some of the most powerful nations (including the United States), and has established a series of high-profile charitable foundations and outstanding world-leading brands. At the same time, it has brazenly sponsored terrorist entities across the Arab world and beyond.

Egyptian Muslims Prohibited from Wishing Happy Easter

May 4, 2013 5:28 AM PT

An Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood fatwa prohibiting Muslims from wishing Christians a "Happy Easter" has revealed the insidious underbelly of the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for assimilating Egyptians into accepting sharia. The Brotherhood has offered a vague delineation of what sharia means by touting a jurisprudential doctrine known as istislah, which asserts that Islamic legal principles should be interpreted to achieve "societal benefits," thus clouding perception of how the Brotherhood would "implement the sharia." But when it comes to religious differences, look out.

Apr 16, 2013 1:41 PM PT

While Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood condemned the bombing of the Boston Marathon in an official statement on Tuesday, senior leader Essam el-Erian engaged in conspiracy theorizing, saying there could be a connection between current world events and the Monday terrorist attack.

According to el-Erian, the Boston Marathon bombing cannot be considered separated from the context of the French War in Mali, "the destruction in Syria and Iraq, and faltering rapprochment between the Turkish government and Kurdish rebels."

Cables: State Dept. Disregarded Warnings About Muslim Brotherhood Threat

Jan 8, 2013 4:50 PM PT

The Obama administration chose to listen to voices suggesting that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood was moderate rather than those who warned it would resort to violence if it came to power, cables obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism show.

The cables make four things clear about the Muslim Brotherhood's role in the Egyptian revolution and how the Obama administration failed to address it:

Washington Post: Obama Wrong to Embrace Muslim Brotherhood

Dec 8, 2012 10:41 AM PT

WAPO's David Ignatius had an important Dec. 7 column in which he raised a question about Obama's stance toward the Muslim Brotherhood and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, and then answered his own question. 

The question was crucial: "How did Washington become the best friend of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, even as President Mohamed Morsi was asserting dictatorial powers and his followers were beating up secular liberals in the streets of Cairo?"
