Egypt Calls Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Group – Kareem Fahim

Egypt’s military-backed leaders designated the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization on Wednesday, outlawing the country’s most successful political movement and vowing to treat anyone who belongs to it, or even takes part in its activities, as a terrorist. The decision came a day after officials blamed the Brotherhood for a suicide bombing at a police headquarters north of Cairo that killed 16 people, though on Wednesday a separate group, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, which has derided the Brotherhood for its lack of militancy, claimed responsibility for the bombing. ”The Muslim Brotherhood remains as it was,” the cabinet said in a statement. ”It only knows violence as a tool.”  (New York Times)

Egypt Steps Up Total War on Muslim Brotherhood – Zvi Bar’el
Branding the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization was a step demanded by the public. A poll by the liberal newspaper Al-Watan found that 79% of Egyptians supported declaring the Brotherhood a terrorist organization, with 21% opposed. Before the Egyptian revolution, when it was defined merely as a banned organization, the Brotherhood suffered restrictions primarily on its political activity. Being defined as a terrorist organization, however, means the battle against it will be a national security priority. (Ha’aretz)
