Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood in its English website talks about "Freedom and Justice", but in Arabic site talks about "Preparation for Jihad"...

The English and Arabic websites for the Muslim Brotherhood show one message for the English speakers and another message for the Arabic speakers. In English, the Muslim Brotherhood is all about "Freedom and Justice" ( see here You will be hard-pressed to locate the Muslim Brotherhood logo there. On Arabic websites, however, you will usually find the Muslim Brotherhood logo of crossed swords. Freedom for the Muslim Brotherhood is really freedom from man-made laws in favor of Allah’s laws, i.e., Sharia Law. Justice means the implementation of Sharia Law which places Muslims in a superior position to non-Muslims and men superior to women.

The Arabic words surrounding the crossed swords on the logo bears great significant.

The white Arabic script --  الإخوان المسلمون  -- sometimes seen on the logo, means The Muslim Brotherhood

The word just below crossed swords -- وأعدوا – whose vowelized form is وَأَعِدُّواْ – does not mean “Freedom.” In English, this means “And prepared”, or “Prepare”, or “Make Preparation”, or “Make Ready”, or “And Make Ready”. Such expressions almost sound like the Boy Scouts’ motto, “Be Prepared”. However, these are actually the first words of the following an important verse of the Quran:

“(8:60) Make ready for an encounter against them all the forces and well-readied horses you can muster that you may overawe the enemies of Allah and your own enemies and others besides them of whom you are unaware but of whom Allah is aware. Whatever you may spend in the cause of Allah shall be fully repaid to you, and you shall not be wronged.”

(In order to see the matching words at the right place, remember to read the Arabic script of verse from right to left, top to bottom)


There you have it: the velvet glove with the word “Freedom”; the crossed swords with the words “Make Ready” with its well-known militant Jihadi Quranic reference. That’s the Muslim Brotherhood.

It is not Western “freedom” that they intend to bring to Egypt – or to anywhere else. This is evidenced by the Muslim Brotherhood’s new Arabic website, which announces Muhammad Morsi’s presidential victory in Egypt with a new logo:

It announces,

Muhammad Mursi… President for Egypt 2012

Renaissance of the people’s will

Egyptian Renaissance of the Islamic Source of Authority

Meanwhile, the rest of us should also “Make Ready” for what this Muslim Brotherhood victory portends. Go and download the free online copy of the Team B 2 Report, the Threat to America.
