Muslim Brotherhood: ‘Prepare Egyptians for war with Israel'

Is this really the kind of thing that needs to be seen with all that Egypt is currently going through? Is this just propaganda from Israel? Or is this just posturing by a MB member in Iran? Regardless, this is really not needed at this time. Don't you think? The entire world is edgy right now about all that is going on, talking about any negative repercussions from the upheavals, is counterproductive.

"A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt told the Arabic-language Iranian news network Al-Alam on Monday that he would like to see the Egyptian people prepare for war against Israel, according to the Hebrew-language business newspaper Calcalist.

"Muhammad Ghannem reportedly told Al- Alam that the Suez Canal should be closed immediately, and that the flow of gas from Egypt to Israel should cease “in order to bring about the downfall of the Mubarak regime.” He added that “the people should be prepared for war against Israel,” saying the world should understand that “the Egyptian people are prepared for anything to get rid of this regime.”

"Ghannem praised Egyptian soldiers deployed by President Hosni Mubarak to Egyptian cities, saying they “would not kill their brothers.” He added that Washington was forced to abandon plans to help Mubarak stay in power after “seeing millions head for the streets.”

On the other side of this argument, apparently is Queen Noor of Jordan about the Muslim Brotherhood
In brotherhood - Monday, February 7, 2011
News-worthy.info — In an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan last night, Queen Rania of Jordan said that while most Arabs are moderate peaceful centrist, the Muslim Brotherhood are one of the many groups throughout the region that have points of view that need to come to the table.

Her remarks were in response to Morgan’s question about Newt Gingrich’s statement earlier before saying that “the Muslim Brotherhood is a mortal enemy” of Western civilization.

In his critics to Obama’s administration approach to political crisis in Egypt, Gingrich expressed his concerns that the United States might reach out to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“I think this is absolute total misreading of history. The Muslim Brotherhood is a mortal enemy of our civilization, they say so openly,” Gingrich said.

Answering Morgan’s question whether she agrees with what Gingrich said about the Muslim Brotherhood, Queen Rania said, “I think that is a very polarizing approach to what is taking place in the Middle East that has dominated for a very long time. It assumes that any religious group is somehow dangerous and extreme while in fact most Arabs – religion is important to most Arabs – actually are moderate peaceful centrists,” and that “The Muslim Brotherhood are one of the many groups throughout the region that have points of view that need to come to the table”.
