My hat is off to the young Chancellor of Austria concerning his stand against the Muslim Brotherhood (MB).
This murderous Islamist group poses as peaceful and benign , but don’t let them fool you. They are well known by Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, ISIS and all Israel-hating groups across the planet.
When Egypt planned elections after the so-called “Arab Spring” in 2010, Mohamed Morsi (head of the MB) promised not to run. Mubarak had fled the country, and immediately when it was clear that Egypt needed a new leader, Morsi threw his hat into the ring.
He won the election handily, but a coup led by Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, former director of military Intelligence, ousted him and Egypt has since been led by el-Sisi. Morsi was jailed along with other members of the MB, and died years later in the courtroom where he was being tried for crimes against Egypt.
“Austria Bans Muslim Brotherhood and Sets New Standard In the Fight Against Islamist Extremism,” EU-Policies, July 13, 2021:
This won’t happen in the U.S., as long as Biden’s handlers are in power. They’re actively collaborating with Brotherhood entities in the U.S.
Last week, the Austrian National Assembly passed an act targeting the activities of ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood. Under the new law, released terror offenders will be monitored through electronic ankle bracelets, and imams leading religious services in the country will be required to register with the government. The new regulations also make Austria the first European country to ban the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities outright, as the country takes a firm stance against a growing phenomenon of political Islam.
The new legislation is only the most recent in a series of efforts by the conservative government of Sebastian Kurz to try and curb Islamist extremism in the country. While Austria is currently going further than any other government in Western Europe in targeting suspects, its model for preventing extremist activities might soon be taken up in other EU countries….
Founded in 1928 by Egyptian scholar Hassan al-Banna as an “Islamic revival” organisation, the Brotherhood came to worldwide prominence as a wave of Islamism rose up to challenge secular governments across the Arab World in the second half of the 20th century. Over the past several decades, the transnational constellation of organisations that make up the Brotherhood has also given rise to paramilitary wings which have engaged in campaigns of bombings and assassinations.
The movement’s primary goal has long been to create Islamist states ruled in accordance with sharia, or Islamic law. In the wake of the Arab Spring, branches of the Brotherhood emerged as a dominant political force in several countries, and even managed to obtain power in Egypt with the election of Mohammed Morsi to the presidency and in Tunisia through the Ennahda movement. After being democratically elected, Morsi took a sharp turn towards authoritarianism, acting to cement Islamist rule over Egypt until furious protesters and the Egyptian army forced him out of power a year into his term.
While mainstream branches of the Brotherhood often present themselves as democratising forces and compete in elections, their offshoots and sister organisations include a number of violent terrorist organisations such as Hamas or Liwa al-Thawra. For many years, the Muslim Brotherhood has been seen by scholars as a “gateway” organisation for religious extremists who are initially radicalised by its strong Islamist message and subsequently move on to more overtly extremist groups. No less than Ayman al-Zawahiri, the current leader of al-Qaeda, started out as a member of the Brotherhood…. Source
President Trump had promised to label the MB as a terrorist group and outlaw them in the U.S. That never happened and with the Biden admin, the MB are further empowered to carry on the funding of Jihad in America and around the world.
Sebastian Kurz, Chancellor of Austria since 2020 has made his stand clear to the world about the MB.
Pray that other European countries will follow suit!
