    Muslims Brotherhood and Salafies are preparing for civil war in Egypt.

    Long known for its pyramids and ancient civilization, Egypt is the largest Arab country and has played a central role in Middle Eastern politics in modern times. Egypt was the first Arab country to recogniz and sign a peace treaty with Isreal.

    Before Egyptian parliamentary election the voice in United States was not to fear Egypt’s Muslims Brotherhood. After all, the Brothers have even renounced violence! Fareed Zakaria suggested they will only gain 20% to 25% of the parliament seats. After fraudulent election they gained more than 75% then, they formed a 100-member panel tasked to draft a new constitution for Egypt where the majority were hardliners Islamic fundamentalist with one goal only which is to implement strict rules of Islam and Sharia law. Then Brotherhood named el-Shater, its chief strategist and financier, as a candidate for president and if el-Shater wins, the Brotherhood would completely dominate the political arena in Egypt.

    Once Omar Suleiman, Egypt's former intelligence chief, decided to run for president, he received threatening texts on his mobile phone, as well as through his aides. They now threatened violence and a repeat of Syrian civil war if Omar Suleiman won the presidency. They have received and stored weapons through Libya and Sudan. The Brotherhood was finally strong enough that violent attacks would more likely achieve Ikhwan objectives and violence would surely be necessary to complete the revolution (meaning, to institute sharia, Islam’s legal-political framework). The organization's motto is as follows: “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.” It’s logo means Muslim Brotherhood Qur'an and Swords and it’s ideology is virulently anti-Semitic anti-Western and anti-democratic in principle. Muslims Brotherhood can’t be trusted.

    One might wonder how an organization can be thought to have renounced violence when it has inspired more jihadists than any other. The previous Chief for Muslims Brotherhood said that bin Laden is not a terrorist at all but a “mujahid,” a term of honor for a jihad warrior. No one can ignore its Palestinian branch Hamas — a terrorist organization committed by charter to the violent destruction of Israel and known to its connection to Iran. The fact that the previous leader of Muslims Brotherhood and many members of Gama Islamia visited Iran after the revolution is an indication to their intentions. If this was not true, can anyone tell me why the U.S. Department of State issued an alert on March 29, 2012 to U.S. citizens traveling to or living in Egypt to the continuing possibility of sporadic unrest. Muslims Brotherhood can’t be trusted.

    The Brotherhood aims to create an Islamic state in Egypt, but insists that it would not force women to cover up in public in line with Islam’s teachings and would not rescind Egypt’s 1979 peace treaty with Israel. During the recent crisis, the group also has called for “a democratic and civic state.” Yet, it is important to note that talk is cheap.

    One can only hope. We do not need the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrating the ranks of Egytian government as they do not have the best interest of Israel and the United States at hand. They state that they have the best of intentions but I dont believe that for one minute.

    United States should act now to prevent Muslims Brotherhood from dominating the political arena in Egypt because Isreal treaty with Egypt will not survive regardless to what assurance Muslims Brotherhood gave to United States not to mention the rights for minorities and women. Muslims Brotherhood can’t be trusted.
