A leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has made remarks covered on the official Brotherhood website which were timed for the sixth anniversary of the 911 attacks. The remarks were made by Dr. Mohamed Morsi, described as a top Muslim Brotherhood leader and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Executive Office, and illustrate several of the anti-American and anti-Semitic themes common throughout the global Muslim Brotherhood networks. According to the report, Dr. Mori first condemned the attacks but then launched immediately into a criticism of the U.S response, even seeming to raise a question about the identity of the attackers:
Immediately after 9/11 attacks happened six years ago, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) group condemned them, seeing them as totally divorced from any religion or creed, actions which are totally rejected by Islam. However, the oppressive aftermaths and repercussions committed throughout the past six years by the US administration deserve another condemnation.From the very beginning, the Muslim Brotherhood group has frankly denounced these attacks. We do not approve carrying out attacks against safe peoples or demolishing houses. “These attacks were a wrong act which we denounce regardless of its doer”…
Dr. Morsi then goes on to explain what he later calls the ” current terrorism against mankind” carried out by the U.S. even comparing the U.S. attack on Iraq with Pearl Harbor:
Mohamed Morsi sees that the US administration is currently the world”s terrorism leader that intimidates civilians with through invasions, and using unconventional weapons…Mohamed Morsi sees that the US administration is currently fighting all Islamic peoples and countries due to the US administration claims that the doers of the 11 September attacks Muslims, without proving such a thing until now. It seizes such incidents as a pretext to achieve its targets, and control wealths of Islamic states, he adds.The US administration”s post-9/11 attitude of invading Islamic states, is fully similar attacking Japan after Pearl Harbr in the Second World War, he sys.
Finally, Dr. Mori criticizes the U.S. designation of Palestinian “resisters” as terrorists and adds a new dimension to Brotherhood propaganda by accusing Israeli forces of “raping women”:
Morsi stresses that the United States hasn”t given a clear definition for the concept of terrorism. The US administration even accused resisters and those defending their land in Palestine of being terrorists, an attitude which the Muslim Brotherhood rejects. Reiterating that the MB fully rejects the 9/11 attacks, Mohamed Morsi said on the other hand that the MB rejects also the exercises committed by the US administration against people all over the world and that this very administration gets in line with Israeli occupation forces in aggression, injustice, encroaching lands and raping women. Morsi pointed out also that there are several polls in Europe revealing that Israel and its supporters are more dangerous to global security than any other kind of terrorism.
