How the U.S. should deal with the Muslim Brotherhood

How the U.S. should deal with the Muslim Brotherhood

The Muslim Brotherhood does not seem to be as violent as al-Qaeda. However, it is hard to completely separate them from the phenomenon of Radical Islam. The word they use for their slogan is 'Wa-aidou' which is Arabic for 'prepare.' This is taken from verse 8:60 of the Quran which states, 'Prepare (Wa-aidou) against them (the Un-believers) to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know.' Therefore, the use of 'Wa-aidou' underneath the two swords in the MB flag indicates this is much more complex word than many can imagine.
