About

The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch

The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch (GMBDW) was created in order to monitor the daily activities of the Global Muslim Brotherhood. Each day, a large variety of news and other sources are sifted in order to identify the most relevant developments and which are presented in the form of postings referencing the original source material along with additional commentary and/or historical background . The GMBDW represents neither a political nor a religious point of view and seeks only to present the best available and reliable information on the daily activities of the Global Muslim Brotherhood. The GMBDW is read widely by US government agencies as well as by other governments and users worldwide.
