The Muslim Brotherhood Reveals its Position on the Israel-Palestinian Question

Gary Fouse

As the military government of Egypt cracks down on the Muslim Brotherhood, Ikhwan Web, the English-language website of the Brotherhood, reveals its position on the Israel-Palestine question.

"It also is an indication that the coup is one of the tools of the Zionist-American project to destroy the Arab and Muslim nation."

"The coalition stresses that Palestine is a State occupied by the Zionist enemy, that Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Palestine, and that the Palestinians are our brothers and sisters, while Zionists are our enemies. Transgressors will inevitably be vanquished."

This seems to make it pretty clear that the Muslim Brotherhood is not interested in a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians. Israel is the enemy and Jerusalem (all of it)  should be the capital of the Palestinian state. Period-end of discussion.

Which begs the question: Why is the Obama administration supporting the Muslim Brotherhood?
