The Muslim Brotherhood Are Secular...

...Or so says James Clapper, the US Director of National Intelligence.

I suppose it's because the slogan of the Muslim Brotherhood is 'Islam is the solution' and it's aim, as stated by it's founder, is to create and Islamic empire stretching from Spain to Indonesia that brought him to that conclusion, right? Or perhaps it was the Brotherhoods' original credo of "Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations."

"The Ikhwan (Muslim Brother) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions."             Statement by the Muslim Brotherhood (1991)
Yes, yes those certainly sound like the words of a secular organisation.

I'm unsure about the MB, I've been aware of them for over 40 years; seems to me that they were largely defeated by the Egyptian Army and security forces and consist largely of old guys overtaken by recent events, a bit like the Old IRA.

Even so, to describe them as 'secular' seems bizarre. Though mind you, the Church Of England could equally be described as secular these days.

banned, Bizarre indeed, I think it's the word 'Muslim' rather than 'Brotherhood' that gives it away.
