The Muslim Brotherhood learned their sleek tactics from their mentors the Nazis. My new novel Rebirth chronicles some of the activities of their early partner/co-conspirator, Al Huseini who was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and a personal friend of top ranking Nazi leaders like Adolph Eichmann. He is the person in the photo off to the right conversing with Hitler about "the Jewish problem".
Al Huseini was the single most destructive Arab against Jews of all time! He legacy is still considered heroic to much of the Islamic world today.
Islamists may run for office and hold themselves out as democrats; but once power is in their grasp, they do not voluntarily relinquish it. Just months after Hamas, a self-described "wing of the ," won a majority of seats in the Palestinian elections in 2006, it violently seized control of Gaza.
If Egypt is to have any hope of a transition to a genuine constitutional democracy, the Muslim Brotherhood must not be treated as a legitimate democratic partner. Its credo could hardly be more explicit, or more antidemocratic: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The is our law. is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope." This week, senior Brotherhood figure Kamal al-Halbavi said his wish for Egypt is "a good government like the Iranian government, and a good president like Mr. Ahmadinejad, who is very brave."
