The Muslim Brotherhood has at least $100 billion at its disposal for work outside of its Egyptian base, according to Islamist Groups expert Sameh Eid.

The cash is designated for dawa – the spreading of Islamic ideology both among Muslims and non-Muslims, Eid told the An Hour From Egypt TV show on August 25.

Eid claims the Brotherhood is diverting donor money that is pledged for use in places like Afghanistan and Bosnia Herzegovina. These donations end up in the coffers of the Muslim Brotherhood instead.

Individual members give the organization eight percent of their salaries.

The Brotherhood uses its $100b. in projects in some 80 countries.

The Muslim Brotherhood (Al-Ihkwan al-Muslimun) is a Sunni, pan-Islamic organization based in Cairo, Egypt whose ultimate aim is the re-establishment of the global Islamic caliphate and the implementation of sharia as state law. Founded in Egypt in 1928 it is the oldest Islamist group in the world and along with Jamaat e-Islami in Pakistan and India, the most influential.
