General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has been in power for seven years but he has made a real mess of everything in Egypt. Far from solving any of the problems, he has created new enemies abroad while the people continue to suffer grinding poverty
The death in cage in a Cairo courtroom of Egypt’s only elected President Mohamed Mursi was pre-planned because the regime deliberately denied him medication and proper care. In death, Mursi has become a martyr.
Islamic Iran has survived for 40 years because it adhered to Islamic principles but sectarianism and nationalism are gradually creeping in. These must be guarded against just as the Ikhwan must re-evaluate their conduct over the last 40 years to rectify their mistakes.
Egypt under General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi is a fascist state. This was reconfirmed today (September 8) when the Cairo Criminal Court sentenced 75 people to death.
Dr Mohammed Mahdi Akef, the former Murshid (spiritual guide) of the Ikhwan al Muslimeen, died in an Egyptian hospital where he was moved from prison. Suffering from cancer, the military regime refused to provide him medication. He was 89.
It was three years ago that the Egyptian army perpetrated a bloodbath against innocent civilians in Cairo. General Sisi was and remains head of the military regime. Far from condemning the killings of innocent, Sisi is welcomed in Western capitals.
Defeat of the Saudi-backed and financed elements in Mosul is in reality the defeat of Zionist Israel that has duped ill-informed and misguided Muslims into fighting and killing other Muslims.
The Saudis first launched their sectarian crusade against the Islamic Republic of Iran, now they have gone after Qatar, a fellow Wahhabi bastion. Their quarrel is pathetic and childish and aims to protect Zionist Israel.
The fickle Arabian rulers are at each other’s throats again. They are worse than children as shown by the pathetic spat between Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
The Saudi-led siege of Qatar has little to do with Doha’s alleged misconduct; it is more about serving the Zionist State of Israel.
This is the second part of Zafar Bangash’s article on “change”; the first part was published in the October 2016 issue of Crescent International, concluding with outlining some of the qualities of muttaqi leadership.3
Using the garb of Sufism, the self-styled religious preacher, Fethullah Gulen has turned out to be a US-Zionist puppet who is prepared to advance their agenda. This is how the enemies of Islam operate.2
Has Hamas leadership realized the errors of its policy in aligning itself with oppressive Arabian regimes and abandoning the Islamic Republic, the one true friend of the Palestinian people? Recent statements by Hamas officials gives cause for guarded optimism.
All parts of the Islamic movement should learn from the experiences and mistakes of the Ikhwan al-Muslimoon in Egypt.
The oldest contemporary Islamic movement—the Ikhwan al-Muslimoon—in Egypt is expected to display much better understanding and greater maturity but unfortunately their conduct has led to the disaster they faced.
Imam Khomeini, who left this earthly abode and joined heavenly company on June 3, 1989, has had a profound impact on global politics. The Islamic Republic’s success in withstanding the global conspiracy of kufr and nifaq for more than 36 years is testimony to its strong Islamic roots.
Both the Ikhwan al-Muslimoon in Egypt and Hamas in Palestine have suffered greatly but they continue to consort with unsavory characters tarnishing their own reputation.
Judges in Egypt act like executioners and serve as slaves for the brutes in uniform. Handing death sentences by the scores has become routine in Egypt under the Pharaohs.
حين قبض الله سجّان مصر الأول؛ كان في ذلك ما يُشبه الإيذان بانتقال الحركة الإسلامية لمرحلة جديدة. بدأها السادات بتكتيك مختلف عن سلفه، وإن كان الهدف واحدًا: ترويض الجماعة/الحركة بدمجها في النظام السياسي ما بعد الكولونيالي، ومن ثم توظيفها سياسيًا واقتصاديًا لتحقيق التحوّل الرأسمالي المنشود. فأطلق سراح آلاف المعتقلين، وأعيد الاعتبار لكثير منهم، بل سُمحَ للإخوان بالعمل السياسي-الدعائي العلني، بشكل غير رسميّ؛ يحفظ خط الرجعة على النظام المتربّص، ويسمح له بالتنكيل بالتنظيم “الإرهابي” “المنحل” و”غير القانوني”، حين يستنفذ أغراض وجوده.
