MB's leader talks of God's role in Egyptian history

During his weekly sermon, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood perceives the political and military fate of Egypt as dependent on the state's treatment of the group's members

Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie alleges that Egypt’s defeat at the hands of Israel in the 1956 and 1967 wars as well as the fall of ousted president Hosni Mubarak were all a result of God's wrath due to the mistreatment of Brotherhood members.

He added that president Gamal Abdel Nasser’s arrests of MB members in 1954 led to the 1956 defeat, and a series of detainments in 1965 also led to the 1967 defeat. Similarly, Mubarak’s imprisonment of Brotherhood members led to the January 25 Revolution and his consequent fall.

Badie pontificated in last week’s sermon, tailored to commemorate the defeat of Egyptian forces by Israel on 5 June 1967, that the Brotherhood were the first to speak up against injustices in Egypt and suffered many years of torture and incarceration as a result.

“But God has made it possible for the Brotherhood to open their new headquarters in the Muqattam area, where many of the martyrs who died in military prisons were buried,” Badie declared.

Furthermore, the group’s leader asserted that the1967 defeat was an event that shocked the Arab world regardless of attempts by many Egyptian politicians to justify the defeat by saying that it was just a battle and not a war. The majority of Arabs refuse to believe this maintains Badie who dubbed the defeat as a “shameful” event which destroyed the dignity of generations of Arabs and will remain in the history books forever.

Badie also slammed all the politicians who insisted that the 1967 war was actually a victory and not a defeat. He stated that the environment of repression, lack of freedom and dictatorship that ruled Egypt at the time were indicators, heralding the defeat that was soon to hit the country. This level of corruption, says Badie, has planted fear, hypocrisy and passivity in the nation.

He added that all dictators care about is maintaining their hold on power and would stop at nothing until the country has been destroyed or occupied by foreign forces.

Badie also attacked the Free Officers movement who orchestrated the 1952 Revolution, saying that when the revolution took place, they promised freedom, democracy and justice but instead, repressed people and slaughtered democracy.

“But now the dawn has finally come,” says Badie. “The Intifida of the Arab nations in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Syria has led to the downfall of corruption and tyranny by citizens who are marching towards justice and freedom. Now dictators and pharaohs are falling like puppets.”

The Arabs have finally woken up from their coma, added Badie, and now the fruits of the Egyptian revolution are already being revealed with the reconciliation between the Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas and the opening of the Rafah border crossing.

He concluded by saying that the policies now adopted by Egypt are focused on improving the lives of the people, and from now on, the US and Israel will not be able to interfere in internal decisions.

“Victory is coming God willing there is not doubt about that,” says Badie. “And the return of Palestine, Jerusalem and the Golan Heights and all the lands occupied by Israel is no longer a dream but a hope that will become a reality soon. Now after the people have revolted, the era of Israeli superiority has come to an end and now Israel is doubting that it will be able to continue existing.”

MASSAGE TO THE POOR
This man knows that events are not linked the way he claimed,but he still make such caims to influence simple people in blieving that Moslems Brotherhood is protected and garded by God, so,those who love God should love the Moslems brotherhood group, that is the message he ment to decieve people with. Christians too are circualting a similare message which says that Sadate was killed 40 days from pop Shenoda was stepped aside and Mubarak stepped aside 40 days from Alexandria`s church massacre without explaing why does it taske God 40 days to avenge

Muslim Brotherhood
Fanatic, bigot, racist, hate and war mongerer with an obsession with Israel. Gee, you hardly ever see that in the middle east. West bad, Islam good. I think life is just a little more complicated than that. An intellectual mechanism that enables self-criticism within Islam is non-existant - everything is the West's fault. Oh, if only the evil West didn't exist. Everything would be fine and rocket scientists and geniuses would flow out of Islam. Good luck with these guys. They'll wreck Egypt.

This man Badie is the face of Egypt's future personified. Any hopes that secularists, the country's youth or Christians once had that the Revolution would deliver a new enlightened era of freedom and democracy, have been well and truly dashed.

I don't care about Palestine or Palestinians, all I care is freedom and justice for my people (Egyptians)
I know Egypt is strong enough now and it will take only 5 days for Egyptians soldiers to reach Jerusalem but there is no reason Egypt should be at war with Israel because Israel doesn't have one inch of Egyptian land. Egyptians are not Arabs!!! Enough of supporting Arabs because our language is Arabic. If the war will be for religious reasons, then all Muslims (worldwide) should bring their jihad drums and reach Jerusalem together. Why only Egyptians? (Ahram- post my comments this is part of freedom of speach, you should respect other opinions)

Allah Emancipates Christian Slaves
Allah Emancipates Christian Slaves Allah reveals in the following Verses of the Qur’an that Christians are slaves of the Jews, however, the Qur’an emancipates you evil, corpse-eating, blood-drinking ghouls from your greedy, oppressive and sadistic jinn aka Jew masters: (Those who follow the Messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write (i.e. Muhammad) whom they find written with them in the Taurat (Torah) {Deut, xviii 15} and the Injeel {Gospel} (John xiv, 16)—he commands them for Al-Ma’ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained); and forbids them from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of all kinds, and all that Islam has forbidden); He allows them as lawful At-Tayyibat (i.e. all good and lawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods), and prohibits them as unlawful Al-Khaba’ith (i.e. all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons and foods), He releases them from their heavy burdens (of Allah’s Covenant with the children

Unbelivable doctrine!
This guy is completely deluded and misguided. It is clear that If the Muslim Brotherhood get in power, they will lead Egypt to war and a path of destruction. Why such hate and evil?
