Saudi Arabia will purge its school curriculum of any influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as dismiss employees who chose to sympathise with the banned group
“The move comes after the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in an interview with CBS television that elements of the Muslim Brotherhood…. had infiltrated Saudi schools.”
Likewise, the West is also infiltrated by damaging Muslim Brotherhood (MB)-linked lobbying groups, MB-linked individuals in government, and MB groups operating on university campuses.
Saudi Arabia will now “ban books attributed to the Muslim Brotherhood from all schools and universities and remove all those who sympathise with the group.” It is peculiar that Saudi Arabia is taking these measures while Westerners remain sitting ducks in the face of Islamic supremacist MB activities.
The mission of the Muslim Brotherhood for North America (and more broadly the world) “is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
Back in 1995, Mustafa Mashhur, head of the MB in Egypt from 1996-2002, published a document, Jihad Is the Way, “which detailed MB’s determination to advance Islam’s global conquest, to reestablish an Islamic Caliphate, and to infuse all Muslims with a sense of duty to wage jihad against Israel. Masshur said that MB differed from al Qaeda only in its tactics, not in its goals.”
Saudi Arabia has been promoting an image of “reform” that is highly suspect, given its longtime exporting of the Wahhabi ideology globally. Nonetheless, the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood are well documented, and it is high time that Western countries also designate the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates as terrorist entities. The MB’s insidious work has been the foundation of the Islamization of Western countries, and the obsessive fear that Westerners have of being deemed “Islamophobic,” a term heavily pushed by the MB in its mandate to intimidate and subjugate unbelievers, and place Islam above all other faiths.
“Saudi Arabia to purge Muslim Brotherhood influence in schools”, Alaraby, March 22, 2018:
Saudi Arabia will purge its school curriculum of any influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as dismiss employees who chose to sympathise with the banned group, announced the education minister.
In a statement released on Tuesday, Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Issa said the government will “fight extremist ideologies by reviewing school curricula and books to ensure they are free of the banned Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda”.
It also seeks to “ban books attributed to the Muslim Brotherhood from all schools and universities and remove all those who sympathise with the group”, he added.
The move comes after the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in an interview with CBS television that elements of the Muslim Brotherhood, which the Kingdom has designated as a “terror group”, had infiltrated Saudi schools.
The prince has vowed to return the country to “moderate Islam”, introducing a number of social reforms in a country dominated by hardline rhetoric.
Many members of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood sought refuge in Saudi Arabia after persecution following regime crackdowns, beginning with Gamal Abdel Nasser in the 1950s.
Some were later employed in education and public sectors.
Last september, Human Rights Watch said that the kingdom’s religious studies curriculum stokes intolerance with “hateful and incendiary language” towards religious minorities.
HRW said a comprehensive review of school books produced by the education ministry found violent and intolerant teachings, despite official promises to eliminate them.
This has been shaped by the country’s state-sanctioned, hardline Wahabbi interpretation of Islam.
The US considers Saudi Arabia a country of “particular concern” when it comes to religious persecution, but successive administrations have waived the potential sanctions that come with such a designation.
HRW has urged the US, a key Saudi ally, to end the waiver.
Saudi Arabia designated the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation in 2014. Hardline groups such as al-Qaeda and Islamic State group are also blacklisted.
The ruling Al Saud family has always regarded Islamist groups as a major internal threat to its rule over a country in which appeals to religious sentiment resonate deeply and an al-Qaeda campaign a decade ago killed hundreds.
Since the kingdom’s founding, the al-Sauds have enjoyed a close alliance with clerics of the ultra-conservative Wahhabi school of Islam who have espoused a political philosophy that demands obedience to the ruler.
By contrast the Brotherhood advances an active political doctrine urging revolutionary action, and now, democracy, which flies in the face of Wahhabi teaching…..
