Shawki Allam, Grand Mufti of Egypt, Head of the General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities in the World, distributed an important and documented report in English to all members of the British House of Commons and Lords.
He revealed the roots of violence in the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood and their bloody history, on the sidelines of his historic speech that was delivered in front of members of the British House of Representatives.
The documented report exposes the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood and reveals its extremist approach since its inception and its association with terrorist organizations, including “ISIS”, “Hasm” and others, the most important extremist ideas adopted by the organization, and the personalities who founded and theorized violence within it since its inception.
The report also includes the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was a product of the political context at the time and in response to anti-colonial sentiments in Egypt, their speech was different from the anti-colonial fundamentalist speech, as they followed the approach and exploited Islam and religious texts as a tool against society in order to achieve political gains that would benefit the organization rather than the country.
The report stated that the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood adopted the approach of terrorism and violence since its inception with the recognition of its Supreme Leader, Mustafa Mashhur at the time, who said the necessity of using violence and armed force, and looked at this in his lectures, saying in one of them; "We will not achieve victory except through terrorism and intimidation, and we must not succumb to psychological defeat."
The documented report provided evidence of the Muslim Brotherhood's relationship with ISIS and Al-Qaeda, including the joining of a large number of members of the terrorist organization to the ranks of ISIS, especially after Mohamed Morsi announced his support for Jihad in Syria, as well as the statement of Mohamed Beltagy, a prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood after the revolution June 30, that the ongoing violence in the Sinai Peninsula will end once Morsi returns.
After the overthrow of Morsi and the emergence of ISIS, numerous field reports confirmed the presence of many Muslim Brotherhood youths in ISIS ranks in both Syria and Iraq, and when terrorist Hesham Ashmawy, who was a fugitive, was arrested and Egypt received him after he was arrested in Libya.
Ashmawy was addressing the supporters of the terrorist organization in a video message entitled "so that do not despair nor grieve," where he urged them to use violence and wage war against the state.
Ashmawy also urged them to target the police and the army, and he explained to Muslim Brotherhood members how they communicate with terrorist organizations, whether to join their ranks or to carry out inpidual attacks as lone wolves.
The report also revealed that the terrorist organization tried during the past years to hijack the gains of the January 25 after 2011. They tried their best to infiltrate state institutions to seize power through electoral fraud and deception.
When they eventually won the presidential elections, the Muslim Brotherhood's Guidance Office asserted its power by making political and social decisions that completely isolated the people and prompted them to stage a second successful revolution against the ruling Muslim Brotherhood and its guidance office.
The Muslim Brotherhood tried to restore their rule, by provoking chaos, violence, and terrorism, and eventually many extremist and terrorist movements emerged as branches of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood, including the "Liwa al-Thawra" movement in 2016, which carried out a number of retaliatory terrorist operations, including the assassination of Brigadier General Adel Ragai, commander of of the 9th Armored Division in Dahshur, and an attempt to blow up a police training center in Tanta.
The report also talked about the "Hasm" movement, one of the terrorist arms of the Muslim Brotherhood that appeared in 2014 and targeted a number of security forces and public and Judicial figures, including the failed assassination attempt of Dr, Ali Gomaa, the former Grand Mufti of Egypt in 2016, and Assistant Public Prosecutor Zakaria Abdel Aziz in the same year.
