    Re: Is the Muslim Brotherhood made up of extremist Muslims?

    Oh ... well so much to cover on this ... here is one intelligence report on The Muslim Brotherhood.

    US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said during a House Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday that Egypt’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood movement was "a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried al-Qaeda as a perversion of Islam."

    Re: Is the Muslim Brotherhood made up of extremist Muslims?

    Some aspects are, most certainly, but there are other aspects that are almost liberal, they've expressed a desire for Sharia law, but have also denounced violent means and terrorism. I wouldn't want them running my country, but compared to most of the other groups in the ME, they're pretty good.

    And here's an interesting perspective on them: Muslim Brotherhood will likely win next poll | The Australian

    Re: Is the Muslim Brotherhood made up of extremist Muslims?

    I honestly don't know enough about the MB to make such a decision. I do, however, know that the majority of the Egyptian populace wants a secular government which bestows freedom and democracy on its people. If the MB does not stand on such a platform, I believe it will never have enough approval from the majority of Egyptians to gain a "power" position. MB may have representation in the Egyptian parliament in the future... it's not a bad thing to have minority voices heard in government... but I don't forsee a MB candidate for president getting enough votes to actually run the country, let alone toss out the constitution and install an Islamic theocracy.

    Yes because on every channel moderate muslims are denouncing them not only in the US but all around the world. Based on this the MB no doubt must and cannot inline with the positions that are supported by muslims on a broader scale. The clear outrage from the muslim community supports this.

    There are lots of people upset by what Clapper said. This is just a sample.

    Kirk to Clapper on Muslim Brotherhood: WTF? | The Cable


    But the gaffe was enough to invoke the ire of many in Congress, who are warning about the risks of the Muslim Brotherhood coming to power. Kirk, who was a Naval intelligence officer, issued a statement criticizing Clapper Thursday afternoon.

    "I am concerned that the DNI's assessment does not agree with recent public statements by senior leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood nor does it agree with the organization's publicly stated goals," Kirk's statement read. "As the world watches these historic events unfolding in Egypt, the United States should support an orderly transition to democracy that prevents the radical Muslim Brotherhood from grabbing power."

    But, in our nation, during the last century, the KKK wielded a great deal of local power....And the KKK is still alive, much like binLaden, its in hiding.

    Kind of offtopic but everyone please support this Independent Film coming out called Mooz-Lum. It will maybe/hopefully bring awareness to folks in reguards to Muslims in our country. It is about a Muslim American family in a post 9/11. For more info see this review or visit their site please
    Movie review: 'Mooz-lum' - latimes.com

    "A potent feature debut for writer-director Qasim Basir, "Mooz-lum" attacks Islamist extremism while offering audiences a rare and illuminating depiction of life as a Muslim in America."

    We need to wake up in the U.S.A. and understand that Muslims among us are not all evil.
    Then, I suggest to the Muslins that they clean house and root out the extremists and O bin Laden....I have no reports of this being done.

    Think ... Paul Wolfowitz and Ayman al-Zawahiri as two examples ... flip side of a similar coin.

    How Ridiculous.
    I wonder what Leftist wack job is behind that film.

    Neocons want to democracy to spread. IOW, local leaders and people's determining their own fate.
    Islamists want a worldwide Islamic Caliphate under Shariah law.

    and for the record, Pau Wolfowitz's long time paramour is a progressive Arab Woman who works at the World Bank.
    Would Zawahiri date a Jewish woman?
