Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

The Muslim Brotherhood Not a Terrorist Organisation, Asserts Al Beeb's Man

 Mid-East countries in which the Muslim Brotherhood has a political presence

"The leadership of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood (MB, or Ikhwan) has said that its goal was and is jihad aimed at destroying the U.S. from within.

The Brotherhood leadership has also said that the means of achieving this goal is to establish Islamic organizations in the U.S.  under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Since  the  early  1960s, the Brotherhood has constructed an elaborate covert organizational infrastructure on which was built a set of public or“front” organizations.

The current U.S. Brotherhood leadership has attempted to deny this history, both claiming that it is not accurate and at the same time that saying that it represents an older form of thought inside the Brotherhood.

An examination of public and private Brotherhood documents, however, indicates that this history is both accurate and that the Brotherhood has taken no action to demonstrate change in its mode of thought and/or activity."

That is the synopsis of a research report by Steven Merley for the Hudson Institute, on the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. The entire report can be read here

The BBC's Trump-despising Paul Danahar, however, affects to know better, as the following tweet shows:


And the BBC's abysmal Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen, who has of course has made a faux-pas or two when it comes to the Muslim Brotherhood, is of similar Trump-undermining mind.



There may be sound reasons (see here, for instance, and here) for hastening slowly in outlawing the Brotherhood, but presenting all views in a spirit of impartiality, as required of them by the terms of the BBC Charter, does not seem to be on those BBC men's agenda. 

Meanwhile, in Egypt, where the Muslim Brotherhood began:
 
"MPs this week demanded the Ministry of Awqaf (Religious Endowments) exert stricter control on mosques during the holy month of Ramadan.

Hussein Abu Gad, a member of the Future of Homeland Party, warned that extremist and takfiri clerics affiliated with the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamist movements would seek to use the fasting month of Ramadan to infiltrate mosques and spread their perverted version of Islam.

“We need stricter control to prevent radical clerics from insinuating themselves, particularly in secluded and rural districts,” said Abu Gad."

  1. “Al Qaeda seeks to destroy the Jewish state completely.

    Much of its rhetoric and some of its attacks suggest that it sees international Jewry and Israel as interchangeable.

    The group’s rhetoric is also viciously anti-Semitic in addition to being anti-Israel.”

    This quote is only about Al Qaeda,

    Religiosity was also measured, with recruits asked how much of the Qu’ran they had memorized.”

  5. At a [year] 1937 [CE] lecture to the British
    Foreign Ministry, the King of Saudi Arabia said:


    “Verily, the word of Allah teaches us,
    and we implicitly believe this…
    for a Muslim to kill a Jew…
    ensures him immediate entry into Heaven…”
