Breaking from the U.S., the U.K. Condemns the Muslim Brotherhood

Breaking from the U.S., the U.K. Condemns the Muslim Brotherhood,
 Calling It a Terrorist Group
2015-12-23 | Steven Emerson and Pete Hoekstra, Investigative Project on Terroris

Following an intensive 18-month governmental study, the United Kingdom issued a startling indictment of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). It described the organization as fiercely anti-democratic, openly supportive of terrorism, dedicated to establishing an Islamist government, and opposed to the rule of law, individual liberty, and equality.
We use the word "startling" not because this is news but because, in such a politically correct world, it took guts for a world leader to acknowledge the obvious about a movement that purports to represent more than a billion people. If anyone at all — in particular our own president, former secretary of state, and high priesthood of political correctness, the New York Times — had simply bothered to read the Brotherhood's own words, they would have inescapably reached the same conclusion.
The new account, resulting from an exhaustive investigation by respected foreign-policy experts, presents a brutally honest and in-depth examination of the movement. In breaking from the U.S., the U.K. has ironically shifted closer to Egypt, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia in identifying the MB as a terrorist group.
"Aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood's ideology and activities . . . run counter to British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, equality and the mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs," Prime Minister David Cameron said in a statement.
Compare this to the description of the Muslim Brotherhood by James Clapper, America's and the world's top intelligence official, the director of National Intelligence. The MB was "largely secular," Clapper said just a few years ago, and it "has eschewed violence."
After years of witnessing the anti-democratic agenda of the MB firsthand and simply taking at face value the writings and sayings of its leaders and its offshoots, the Obama administration still clings to an Alice in Wonderland view of the organization that gave us al-Qaeda, ISIS, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, al-Shabaab, and nearly every Sunni terrorist affiliate in the world.
Moreover, the Obama administration brazenly ignored every word of the detailed findings by the British team. Within minutes of the release of the U.K. report, the Obama administration condemned it in an e-mail to the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), citing the MB's stated commitment to nonviolence and arguing that pushing back against the organization would lead to the radicalization of some of its followers. The "political repression of non-violent Islamist groups has historically contributed to the radicalization of the minority of their members who would consider violence," the statement reads. "The de-legitimization of non-violent political groups does not promote stability, and instead advances the very outcomes that such measures are intended to prevent."
