This blog was founded to monitor, analyze and document the activities of the Muslim Brotherhod in Europe, the Middle East and worldwide, with a particular focus on the United Kingdom, where the Muslim Brotherhood is operating a broad network that influences British politics and society.
We regard the Muslim Brotherhood as the most important and central organisation that promotes Islamism in the Islamic World and in the West. This encompasses the Brotherhood´s influence on individual Muslims, the infiltration of organisations, private companies and political parties, the destruction of organic institutions like families and communities and the cooperation with terrorist groups.
The Muslim Brotherhood laid the foundation of modern Jihadism and has so far failed to clearly distance itself from violence in the name of Islam. We also should like to point out that the Muslim Brotherhood is an existential threat to the Islamic World as well as to the West. The developments in Egpyt since the fall of President Mubarak have clearly shown that the Muslim Brotherhood is unable to build a political consensus and to solve economic or political problems.
To the extent that we condemn Islamism and Jihadism we also distance ourselves from criticizing Islam as a religion. We regard Islam as one of the world´s oldest world religions that deserves respect and appreciation. We strictly reject any denigration of Islam by extremist and intolerant groups and/or individuals.
