Important Thread on the Muslim Brotherhood. Please RT.
This video below is spreading dangerous ideas. If a
security “expert” says that a terrorist organization is not a
terrorist organization, then we’re in trouble. He says they
“don’t meet the criteria.”
Here are a few examples of the Muslim Brotherhood’s links to terrorism which this
“security expert” missed:
1. The founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan al Bana, introduces his
philosophy by naming it: “The Art of Death”. (1930s-40s).
He bases his terrorist ideology on a “Prophetic Saying”: “He who dies and has not
fought and was not resolved to fight, has died a jahiliyya [non-Muslim, or ignorant]
death.” - see:
