The grandfather of all modern Islamic terrorist groups, the Muslim Brotherhood, is in hot water yet again in Egypt. From AP, :
Police arrested 54 members of Egypt’s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood early Sunday in an ongoing crackdown against the organization, officials said.
The Brotherhood said “about 55” people had been arrested. A leading member of the group said police told the men they were being detained for belonging to an illegal group, said Ali Abdel-Fattah.
A statement from the group said the dawn raids were “a surprise escalation, against all expectations and (in line) with the fierce American and Israeli campaign against the Arab region, which requires solidarity between the regimes and all political forces,” with the Brotherhood at the forefront

The Brotherhood was banned in 1954 for advocating violence to turn Egypt into an Islamic state.

Brotherhood members hold seats in parliament, though they are not permitted to run under the group’s name and are elected as independents.
