An Egyptian court has ordered the arrest of Mohammed Badie also known as Muhammad Badie and other leaders, as many as “hundreds” of the Muslim Brotherhood. Badie has served as the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood since 2010 and has been a member of the organization’s governing council since 1996. His Deputy, Khairat el-Shater was arrested five (5) days ago. We’ve seen the brutal treatment of Christians under the Muslim Brotherhood – not only their words but their deeds. Remember Mohamed Morsi (Mursi) promising to be a “servant” to Christians and women? Remember his “modesty” police prowling the streets looking for unmarried women who may have had some kind of sexual experience? Remember his banning of “hymen repair” kits, a ban making disgrace or death an almost certain possibility for women? Remember Obama speaking in Cairo in 2009 and insisting that the Muslim Brotherhood attend? The Brotherhood was officially banned at that time, although they existed under a willing suspension of disbelief. President Hosni Mubarak was furious. Mubarak did not attend the speech and was not mentioned in the speech. Supporting the Muslim Brotherhood is not supporting freedom or republican democracy. Further, the exiled Muslim Brotherhood godfather of the ‘peaceful’ organization, Yusuf al-Qaradawi called for “Days of Rage” during the Arab Spring. Peaceful? ….no. See some of Badie’s political statements below.
Mr Badie is accused of inciting the violence in Cairo on Monday in which more than 50 people were killed.

Badie is no friend of the U.S. or Israel and advocates for jihad:
Badi has described the U.S. as an infidel nation that “does not champion moral and human values and cannot lead humanity.” He has characterized America and Israel as “the Muslim’s real enemies,” asserting that “[w]aging jihad against both of these infidels is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded.” And he maintains that the “change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life.”…
In July 2012, Mohammed Badie, head of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, said that “all Muslims” have an “individual duty” to “purify [Israel] from the hands of usurpers and cleanse Palestine from the clutches of the Occupation … They must wage Jihad with their money and lives and free it, and free its prisoners, male and female … and enable all of the displaced to return to their homeland, their homes, and their possessions.”
In October 2012, Badie revisited this theme: “Let Muslims know and let Believers be certain that the recovery of the holy sites and the safeguarding of goods and blood from the hands of the Jews will not be through the corridors of the United Nations, nor through negotiations. The Zionists only know the method of force. They will not step back from transgression, unless they are forced to. This will only be by holy Jihad, and enormous sacrifices and all forms of resistance. One day they will be certain that we will choose this Way, and raise the flag of Jihad in the Way of God. We will go forth to the field of Jihad. This will curb their hands and prevent their tyranny.” Source: Discover the Networks
He called for an end to the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty, which Hosni Mubarak honored for 30+ years, as did Rashad Bayyoumi. Bayyoumi was reportedly in Tora Prison on July 5, 2013 but may have been released since.
Badie has a many-years-long history of being at odds with Egyptian governance. In 1965 Badie was arrested along with other Brotherhood members, including Sayyed Qutub. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Nine (9) years later he was parolled by President Anwar Sadat. One year out of prison and he became a member of the MB administration. In 1998 he was arrested again for 75 days for participating in the Islamic Dawa Society.
There is nothing good to say about “Egyptian governance” at any time in it’s history as the people of Egypt have never been free, but the Muslim Brotherhood, as we have seen expressed by the people over the past weeks, has promised Shariah Law and been busy implementing it. We have learned with clarity that their long-held position that the Brotherhood no longer tolerates violence to be untrue.
