Hey, President Obama, Watch What Anwar al-Sadat Said About the Muslim Brotherhood!


Bentley [American journalist]: What, in your opinion, do these people hope to gain from this war [World War One]?
Lawrence: They hope to gain their freedom.
Bentley: They hope to gain their freedom? There’s one [sucker] born every minute!
Lawrence: They’re going to get it, Mr Bentley. I’m going to give it to them. ….–From “Lawrence of Arabia”

An Egyptian Christian (Coptic) group has put up a superb six-minute video of a speech by the late (more on why he’s dead in a moment) President Anwar al-Sadat about the Muslim Brotherhood. It is very timely.

An Egyptian Christian (Coptic) group has put up a superb six-minute video of a speech by the late (more on why he’s dead in a moment) President Anwar al-Sadat about the Muslim Brotherhood. It is very timely.

Sadat makes clear why this group is so radical, dangerous, and inevitably at some point violent. He ought to know.

Some ironies: Of course, Sadat was the leader who let the Brotherhood operate again after two decades of being banned. Even then, in the 1970s and until just about today, it has remained illegal but the group still operated and even ran candidates in elections albeit not under its own name. (Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the Syrian, and Iranian dictatorships didn’t let their opponents run under any name, which tells something about the comparative harshness of dictatorships.)

I haven’t seen a single mention in the Western media as to the reason given by Egyptian governments for keeping the Brotherhood from running candidates in the past. It was this: no party should be allowed to claim a monopoly on “proper” Islam. Remember that point because it is going to be important in future, although the Brotherhood’s new party–to make itself less scary–doesn’t have the word “Islam” in its name either.
