CAIR, Hamas and the Muslim brotherhood, is there a relationship? Do you believe most major Islamic organizations in North America and Western Europe are offshoots of the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan)? Do you know who the Muslim Brotherhood is and what its goals are? Hamas is a Palestinian organization. Did you know that by its own admission, it is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood?
Are you aware?
Are you aware the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was formed by Hamas? CAIR has made support for Hamas one of their highest priorities. Are you aware that Hamas supports genocidal Jew hatred? It shares this with the Muslim Brotherhood. How can American Muslims allow an organization like CAIR to speak in their name? Why are non-Muslims so gullible as to give credence to this organization?
What is the Muslim Brotherhood?
The Muslim Brotherhood is also called Muslim Brethren or The Society of the Muslim Brothers. It is an Islamic organization with a political approach to Islam. It was founded in Egypt in 1928 by cleric Hassan al-Banna. This was after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Many claim the organization decries violence. However, the Brotherhood is the root source of Islamic terrorism.
What do they believe?
According to founder Hassan al-Banna, “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”
The Muslim Brotherhood opposes secular tendencies of Islamic nations. The Ikhwan wants a return to the precepts of the Qur’an. The Brotherhood firmly rejects all notions of Western influences. It rejects extreme Sufism as well. Brotherhood members organize events. They are involved in everything from prayer meetings to sport clubs. They are opportunities for socializing, organizing and communicating.
The organization’s motto: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
An important aspect of the Muslim Brotherhood ideology is the sanctioning of jihad. In 2004 Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi issued a fatwa. The fatwa makes it a religious obligation to abduct and kill U.S. citizens in Iraq.
Hassan Al-Banna wrote that the Islamic flag must be raised again in the territories once ruled by Islam: “Thus, Andulasia (Spain), Sicily, the Balkans, the Italian coast, as well as the islands of the Mediterranean are all Muslim Mediterranean colonies, and they must return to the embrace of Islam.”
Many in the Middle East view the Brotherhood as the root source for Islamic terrorism. In 2005, a former Kuwaiti Minister of Education took a public position. Dr. Ahmad al-Rabi’, wrote in the Saudi-owned Asharq al-awsat newspaper:
“The beginnings of all the religious terrorism that we are witnessing today were in the Muslim Brotherhood’s ideology… all those who worked with bin-Laden and al-Qaida went out under the mandate of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
What have they done?
The Muslim Brotherhood condemned the US for killing bin-Laden in May 2011. They facilitated the growth of al-Qaida. Abdullah Azzam was bin-Laden’s mentor. He came out of the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood. Ayman al-Zawahiri was bin-Laden’s deputy. He came from the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks. He grew up in the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood. There is a relationship between CAIR, Hamas and the Muslim brotherhood.
