UK Government report concludes Muslim Brotherhood should not be classified as a terrorist organisation

David Cameron is braced for a diplomatic row with Saudi Arabia and Egypt when the Government today publishes a long-awaited review into the Muslim Brotherhood which is set to clear it of being a terrorist organisation.

He ordered the “urgent investigation” into the Islamist movement almost a year ago, but the release of its conclusions has been repeatedly delayed amid wrangling between ministers and officials over its findings.

    Did they reach that conclusion by splitting hairs or by pulling petals off daisies?

      By counting their testicles. 0 means false.

      By counting the amount donated by the MB to campaign reelection funds.

    Who doubts that UKIP will be listed as a terrorist organization in 3, 2, …

    I guess that frees-up a lot of Federal agents to hunt down all those white supremacists that have sprung up almost overnight all across North America.

    This study exonerating the MB from terrorist classification actually supports MY findings that the government of the UK is entirely insane!

    Should have taken Sir Humphrey’s advice: Never commission a study without knowing what the recommendation it produces will be.

    It’s like asking the government to investigate the government to find out if most of them are self-serving traitors.

    From the article:

    “ ‘What the UK has been doing from their [the Saudis] point of view has been excellent compared to the nothing or what the Saudis believe is support for the Brotherhood that the US has had. The UK has been more aggressive than the rest of the West, apart from perhaps Canada,’ he said”.

    Aside from the double-talk from this UK spokesman, can somebody bring me to speed as to the status of the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada? I thought there are pro-Muslim Brotherhood groups operating freely here in Canada.

      Pro muslim brotherhood groups operating in Canada? The liberals and the ndp.

    • Exile1981

      There are groups that claim they are not fronts for the MB but no one on here believes them.

    It will be the third largest party in the UK in the next 3 years.

    When your premise is that islam is “the religion of peace” anything that you determine thereafter is going to be absurd. Keep in mind these are the same clods who have swallowed hook, line and sinker that human activity is the biggest cause of climate change.

    It must be all about who is paying the most amount of money for these government services…

    The Muslim Brotherhood must have issued their ultimatum: Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists [i.e. the pro-Western anti-Muslim anti-Islam “terrorists”].
