Naming Michael Moore to be your nutrition expert. James Clapper has no clue about what The Muslim Brotherhood actually is. All he seems to “know” is the propaganda the Muslim Brotherhood wants him to know. Pam Gellar explains
The most dangerous President ever ……… the Muslim Brotherhood secular? Their name is not even secular. Read their handbook.
During a House Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper called Egypt’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood movement “largely secular.”
In response to questioning from Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) about the threat posed by the group, Clapper suggested that the Egyptian part of the Brotherhood is not particularly extreme and that the broader international movement is hard to generalize about.
“The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’…is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam,” Clapper said. “They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera…..In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally.”
Come on Clapper! As Gellar points out just read the Muslim Brotherhood’s OWN HANDBOOK!
“Oh [Muslim] brothers, the nation that excels in the death industry, and knows how to die a noble [death], Allah grants it a precious life in this world and eternal bliss in the Afterlife. The only weakness that shall humiliate us is the love of this world and hating death. Therefore we have prepared your souls for great action, strive for death – and life will be given to you.”
Palwatch just published the translation of The Muslim Brotherhood handbook. Lots of references to Jihad… Personal internal struggle? Not on your life. (hat tip Kamala)
“Prepare yourself and train in the art of warfare, and embrace the causes of power. You must learn the ways and manners and laws of war. You must learn them and embrace them and adhere to them, so that your Jihad will be the one accepted by Allah. …”
For those of you curious to the Muslim Brotherhood project here in America and in the West, read this document that was entered into evidence during the largest Hamas funding trial, the Holy Land trial, in US history. In it, all of the usual suspects are named, CAIR, ISNA, MAS, MSA et al,were named as un-indicted co-conspirators. Their stated goal is “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.“
Good Lord Clapper how hard was that? If a guy blogging on his PC can find this why can’t you? Or perhaps you prefer NOT to know what the “Brotherhood” is really about? Maybe you prefer to bury your head in the sand?
Read all I linked at Atlas Shrugs, Pam Gellar IS all over this and has vital information we all ought to know and understand. Also check this out from PalWatch
One of the results of the turmoil in Egypt is the rise in influence of the Muslim Brotherhood. In order to understand the implications, Palestinian Media Watch has translated the book Jihad is the way by Mustafa Mashhur, who was the official leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt 1996-2002. The book is the fifth volume of his full work called The Laws of Da’wa (Islamic missionary activity).
In his book, Jihad is the way, Mashhur explains the fundamental concepts of the Muslim Brotherhood ideology. Mashhur’s teachings encompass subjects such as the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal of establishing an Islamic state, world domination under Islam, the public and personal religious duty of military Jihad, and the warning not to rush to Jihad until it is prepared and timed for maximum benefit.

PMW has selected the following quotes from Jihad is the way to illustrate central ideas of Muslim Brotherhood ideology. PMW’s translation of the book follows below.
National goal: Islamic world domination
– “…the Islamic Ummah [nation]… can regain its power and be liberated and assume its rightful position which was intended by Allah, as the most exalted nation among men , as the leaders of humanity…”
– “…know your status, and believe firmly that you are the masters of the world, even if your enemies desire your degradation…”
– “It should be known that Jihad and preparation towards Jihad are not only for the purpose of fending-off assaults and attacks of Allah’s enemies from Muslims, but are also for the purpose of realizing the great task of establishing an Islamic state and strengthening the religion and spreading it around the world…”
– “…Jihad for Allah is not limited to the specific region of the Islamic countries, since the Muslim homeland is one and is not divided, and the banner of Jihad has already been raised in some of its parts, and it shall continue to be raised, with the help of Allah, until every inch of the land of Islam will be liberated, the State of Islam will be established,…”
