First take a quick look at this video:
Seems pretty innocuous, even though you may not understand what these folks are saying?
Well, as you can tell from the passing red bus, they are in London. The folks in the suits and their entourage are Egyptian lawmakers on an official visit to the UK. The people confronting them on the street pretty aggressively are members of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is outlawed in Egypt and is also designated a terror organization in a variety of countries including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Russia and Kazakhstan.
Had these protesters approached the MPs in this manner on the streets of Cairo, they would have been hauled off to the nearest police station and quite possibly incarcerated in a less than savory jail. As a result, Brotherhood members carry out their work more successfully overseas.
On the one hand, you may be feeling a degree of sympathy for these activists who are using freedom of speech laws in the UK to legitimately carry out their work. On the other, you should perhaps be saying to yourself, “If the Egyptian authorities don’t stand for this organization, then why should we?” Or, “How come the Brothers are designated terrorists in the Middle East and former Soviet bloc, yet in the United States, Canada and Europe they are free to continue their nefarious work?”
Let’s look at just three of many examples of the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose raison d’etre is the replacement of our governments with an Islamic caliphate:
The Muslim Brotherhood is launching today a solidarity call with all Palestinian factions and Islamic movements to ignite an uprising throughout the Islamic world against the Zionist occupation and the American administration in support of the occupation and against the rights and freedoms of the peoples.
