The Muslim Brotherhood is the most powerful Muslim political organization in the world. Its motto is:
“Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
They belong to the Sunni branch of Islam, competing for world dominance with the numerically smaller Shia branch of Islam led by Iran. The Brotherhood’s modern operating philosophy is often called “Civilization Jihad” or stealth Jihad. They typically work by deceptive public relations campaigns, infiltration, and subversion until they are strong enough to take power and enforce their dominance by the sword. Hamas and Islamic Jihad are two of their terrorist branches. They also helped spawn and have considerable influence over al-Qaeda, which is essentially a spinoff of Hamas. Oil money, especially from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, has been one of their most powerful resources for propagandizing, bribing, and corrupting political, civil, education, banking, and church leaders.
