… The Muslim Brotherhood gets the Hammer …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 23rd,2013

.. and gets itself banned , hopefully now for good .

.. Since the Muslim Brotherhood showed its true stripes during Mohammed Morsi ‘ s time in office as Egypt ‘ s President , they have proven themselves to be a dictatorial mob . They have used the power of the ballot to attempt to achieve a ” elected ” dictatorship , gradually but steadily imposing shariah law on the remainder of Egypt . They also are or were positioning themselves for war with Israel . Bad move . Very bad move .

.. I generally do not approve of military takeovers . However , in this case , it was necessary . The Muslim Brotherhood was gradually imposing its form of dictatorship on Egypt by its use of and abuse thereof of the ballot box . By doing so , it has revealed its true colours . The Egyptian military has , however reluctantly , stepped in . Amazingly enough , they have done so with popular support of the great mass of the people of the country . Even many of the supporters of the Brotherhood realized their true colours , and switched sides . With the great loss of support , the Brotherhood was in essence doomed . Now , they have reaped what they have sewn  ….

CAIRO (Reuters) – An Egyptian court on Monday banned the Muslim Brotherhood from carrying out any activities in the country and ordered the seizure of the group’s funds, widening a campaign to debilitate the Islamist movement of deposed President Mohamed Morsi.

“The court bans the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood organization and its non-governmental organization and all the activities that it participates in and any organization derived from it,” said the presiding judge Mohammed al-Sayed.

The court ordered the government to seize the Brotherhood’s funds and administer its frozen assets.

The army-backed government is waging the toughest crackdown in decades on the Islamist group, which says it has a million members. Security forces killed hundreds of its supporters and rounded up thousands more since Morsi was deposed by the army on July 3 after mass protests against his rule.

The Brotherhood won parliamentary and presidential elections after veteran autocrat Hosni Mubarak was overthrown in 2011.

Army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s toppling of Morsi triggered a political crisis in the Arab world’s most populous state, with the Brotherhood insisting that a military coup robbed them of power.

The court decision is likely to drive more Brotherhood members underground and it may encourage young Islamists to take up arms against the state.

LEC here again — It is going to be very interesting to see how the Brotherhood reacts . Without their physical and financial assets , they are going to have to regroup . It is very likely that they are going to “go to ground” as a result of their banning by  the government , but what else will they do … will they take up arms , and how ? … Also , where will they end up getting financial support ? … if they are going to be an effective underground movement , they are going to need it , and where are they going to get it from ?
