Egypten och Muslimska brödraskapet

En talesman för egyptiska utrikesministeriet, Husam Zaki, säger att Hizzbollah och Iran försöker uppvigla hela regionen. Hizbollahs ledare Nasrallah går i sin mentor ayatollah Khameneis fotspår, säger han. Nasrallah har bl.a. anklagat Egypten för att gå i USA:s och Israels ledband.
Egypt: Hizbullah and Iran want to 'ignite the region'

Muslimska brödraskapet som deltar i förhandlingarna med Egyptens regering säger att de inte vill ta över makten i Egypten utan att de vill delta i regeringsarbetet och hjälpa till.
Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt: We won't take over gov't

En uppfattning om vad den hjälpen kan innebära får man om man läser en översättning som Palestinian Media Watch gjort av "Jihad is the way" skriven av Mustafa Mashhur som var ledare för Muslimska brödraskapet i Egypten från 1996-2002.

The Muslim Brotherhood - in its own words
PMW translation of"Jihad is the way" by Mustafa Mashhur Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, 1996-2002
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

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,..."

Means: Jihad - a mandatory religious duty
-"Then comes the power of arms and weapons,... and this is the role of Jihad."- "Jihad is a religious public duty... incumbent upon the Islamic nation, and is a personal duty to fend off the infidels' attack on the nation..."- "And the youth should know that the problems of the Islamic world, such as Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Eritrea, or the Philippines, are not issues of territories and nations, but of faith and religion. They are problems of Islam and all Muslims, and their resolution cannot be negotiated and bargained by recognizing the enemy's right to the Islamic land he stole, therefore, there is no other option but Jihad for Allah, and this is why Jihad is the way." - "The symbol of the [Muslim] Brotherhood is the book of Allah [the Quran] between two swords. The swords symbolize Jihad and the force that protects the truth represented in Allah's book." - "...that is, go out to battle, oh believers, young and old, by foot or with animal, under all circumstances and conditions..."

Timing: Don't rush, prepare carefully for Jihad
- "... despite this, the [Muslim] Brotherhood is not rushed by youth's enthusiasm into immature and unplanned action which will not alter the bad reality and may even harm the Islamic activity, and will benefit the people of falsehood..."- "... one should know that it is not necessary that the Muslims will repel every attack or damage caused by the enemies of Allah immediately, but [only] when ability and the circumstances are fit to it." - "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."- "... there exists an unavoidable personal duty for every Muslim to equip himself and prepare and gear-up towards Jihad..."

Personal goal: Aspire to Shahada - Death for Allah
- "Allah is our goal, the Prophet is our leader, the Quran is our constitution, the Jihad is our way, and the Death for Allah is our most exalted wish."- "The Jihad is our way and death for Allah is our most lofty wish", this is the call which we have always called,... Many of our beloved ones have already achieved this wish,... We ask Allah to accept all of them,... and may He join us with them, ..."

Jihad against Israel:
- "Honorable brothers have achieved Shahada (Martyrdom) on the soil of beloved Palestine, during the years 47' and 48', [while] in their Jihad against the criminal, thieving, gangs of Zion. The Imam and Shahid (Martyr) Hassan Al-Banna is considered as a Shahid (Martyr) of Palestine, even if he was not killed on its soil."

Också kvinnorna har en viktig roll:

My Islamic sister,
And you, the Islamic sister on the path of the Jihad, you have an important role in Jihad, which
starts at home educating the [young] generations, and preparing them for the Jihad. The woman
is the producer of the men, and Muslim women used to teach their sons by heart the stories of
the military expeditions, as they would teach them the Quran2 In addition, the Islamic sister
who lives by the spirit of the Jihad, is a help to her husband and encourages him in the path of
the Jihad, and she doesn't turn him away or weaken him2 Likewise, she properly manages his
possessions and children, and takes care of them while he is away on the Jihad.
In the past the Muslim women had a role in battle: she would give water to the soldiers and
bandage the wounded, and sometimes she would even participate with weapons, like Nasiba
the daughter of Ka'ab, protecting Allah's Messenger [Muhammad] in the battle of Uhud.
