    Define extremists:



    Extremists that came out of the MB...

    That is deflection ... I do not use Wiki when researching anything. You have no clue of me or what I have read or not read. I stated I do not know all ... yet have traveled to the Mideast and in my healthcare research position report to both a Israeli and a Syrian. I read one of the links you provided yet spent time on more academic research of the topic although not enough time in the past week to come to a conclusion and simply stated such.

    Now ... is that settled on your wiki deflection of my previous post?

    Next ... You are jumping to one extreme already. The MB as you stated is a global organization. The majority are non violent and reject terrorism. Yes, there might be side arms that have supported extremism. Yes, most global organizations with religious roots have those factions.

    I am not making any case for the MB beyond open observation to watch how this unfolds in Egypt.

    Besides, I take a more libertarian view on foreign policy and think US should stay out of their new found voice and for the most part non violent revolt against a dictator. (although as far dictators rule Mubarek was not on the level of SH or others). Yet, there were no open elections or democratic process.

    I am not going to follow only cherry picked jihad WorldNutDaily news.

    I wish for a peaceful and non violent transition for Egypt and they work through their revolution as our country did not so long ago.

    The KKK has been "rooted" out. The fact that an insignificant organization remains under the same laws that protect the insignificant Nazi Party wannabes does little to defend the overwhelming influential presence of the Muslim Brotherhood. The KKK will not control government. No member will be elected to power. And no national policy will resort to KKK guidance.

    Until the MENA region goes through a religious reformation and weeds out their extremist organizations, they will be forever tied to social failure, and thus celebrate religious terror and extremism upon themselves and others.

    Course...that's just me using my brain to look at the obvious.

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.
    Believe the Muslim Brotherhood already has a sizable footprint in the Egyptian parliament. Mubarak prevented them from having an even larger presence. Would say that the current state of Egypt is (unfortunately) an ideal environment for a driven minority (such as the MB) to capture control of the government.

    Hope/wish the best for the people of Egypt. But am not optimistic about what is going to evolve from this current vacuum.

    If the Muslim Brotherhood does rise to power in that country it will not be a good thing for the majority of Egyptians or the world in general. Just an opinion....

    Good point on the Parliament ... and I do agree any thing could happen at this point. I hope for the best for the people of Egypt.

    Their culture, conservative social lifestyle, laws are different ... yet I hope whatever happens it is step closer to real freedom for the people. It may not be ideal ... just another step closer.

    Fascinating point in history of the mid east to watch this unfold ...

    Now ... is that settled on your wiki deflection of my previous post?
    It was not meant as a deflection. It was meant to show that Wiki is not by far the most reliable source and that it is best to utilize multiple sources.

    Actually, the links I provided stated they are a global society.

    So your stating that Christian Missionary organizations which are global have groups which are extremists? Can you provide an example?
    How about Buddhist Missionaries like the following: Buddhist Missionary Society. Do they have extremist arms? Example?

    You don't have to. You just need to listen to the MB and what they THEMSELVES say, unless you have another very good reason to not believe their own words.

    As do we all. I just hope groups like the MB also wish for that.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
