Well, Isn’t This a Surprise…

..Not.

Saad al-Katatny elected head of Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, says goal is to “institute Islamic Sharia law.”

Saad al-Katatny was elected chairman of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party, Egyptian media reported Friday. He beat out FJP’s acting leader Essam al- Erian in a vote that took place October 6.

The FJP is Egypt’s largest political party, currently occupying 47 percent of all seats in the country’s lower house of parliament.Katatny hailed his election as “a first step” towards achieving the goals of the FJP, according to Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper.

In this respect, Katatny was quoted as saying that “The Muslim Brotherhood established the [FJP] to represent the Brotherhood’s political project, which, in the end, will be a wise government that will institute Islamic Shari’a law.”

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi earlier this year ran for office on the FJP ticket. However, he resigned from the party immediately after being elected.

Last week Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Muhammad Badie called on Muslims worldwide to liberate Jerusalem by means of jihad.

According to AFP, in his weekly message to supporters, Badie asserted that “The jihad for the recovery of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims,” stressing that the city’s conquest “will not be done through negotiations or at the United Nations.”

The Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide previously vowed that if the Muslim Brotherhood ever rose to power in Egypt, it would work to sever relations with Israel. “We are certainly not happy with the illegitimate marriage between Cairo and Tel Aviv,” he said.

Who could have seen that coming?

Oh, wait – we did, didn’t we?

Here, here and here.

  1. You know I have been telling people they are trying to rebuild the Caliphate for more than a year now. Well, this is just part of that larger struggle as far as they are concerned. So, no, this didn’t come as a surprise to me, either.

      Just an observation …

      Change the name of the O.P., and you have a much different set of responses from the left.

  2. Bells if you’d teach children in the Middle East things might be different. Right now they learn how to throw rocks at IDF and blow themselves to a billion pieces. And folks wonder why things just aren’t working out over there. 😉

    • I have the feeling they wouldn’t hire me on Token Rd. I will say that they were very happy to sign me up to learn the language. Only thing is, I’m always doing these silly shows….

      I should like to know if you must be Muslim to work at a Muslim school. Would I pose a threat? Would I have to be covered? Would I (God forbid…. ::gasps::) be banned from wearin my flip-flops??!! That’s the deal breaker for me, ya know.
