Extremism is in the eye of the beholder.
But from my own point of view as an American growing up in a Western democracy, I believe they are extreme yes.
I don't understand why we need to judge them or why we should expect the president to. We have no place supporting their revolution or not... it's their country, their rights, and their future. The only responsibility USA has in this situation, is supporting Mubarak and his policies, and America shouldn't have supported a foreign regime in a foreign country and neglected the people in that country.
I haven't had time to watch the news much, because I am working overtime... but it seems like some pundits are trying to paint them as extremists and others are not, so I don't know who to believe... I haven't had time to watch much of it for myself yet.
In the past the Muslim Brotherhood engaged in violence against the various Egyptian regimes. In recent years, they have become much more peaceful and determined to gain power through political means. I don't agree with many of their beliefs, especially treatment of women, but they are not especially dangerous.
From my perspective yes, and I certainly don't want them to have any sort of power.
If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
They aren't well-supported by the Egyptian people, so the assumption that they will gain power if Mubarack steps down is a bit like assuming that the KKK would take over if Hailey Barber stepped down.
There are pages and pages here.
I've barely read any and it frightens me.
It starts out in Arabic, but quickly changes to English.
One: The Memorandum is derived from:
1 - The general strategic goal of the Group in America which was approved by the Shura Council
and the Organizational Conference for the year [I9871 is "Enablement of Islam in North
America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim
Brotherhood which adopts Muslims' causes domestically and globally, and which works to
expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims' efforts, presents
Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is".
2- The priority that is approved by the Shura Council for the work of the Group in its current and
former session which is "Settlement".
3- The positive development with the brothers in the Islamic Circle in an attempt to reach
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
We do have freedom of religion here, this means all "religions", even, IMO, evil ones.
Section 4 speaks of destroying our "way of life".
If this is so, and these Islamics have a strange way with words, then Islam should be banned in our nation.
I don't know. 1) I haven't kept up on most of the developments. 2) I haven't read various position papers from think-tanks or analyst sites (including STRATFOR) 3) There likewise seems to be confusion. Likely, there could be varying elements within an organization that are extreme, just like in many other organizations.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
