    The Muslim Brotherhood - C-SPAN Video Library

    Witnesses testified about unrest in the Arab world and the role of groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Witnesses included an Egyptian born Islamic scholar who was granted political asylum in the U.S., and an author of a book on the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence in the West.

    Lorenzo Vidino, a visiting Fellow at the Rand Corporation; Ahmed Subhy Mansour, President of the International Quranic Center; Tarek Masoud, Assistant Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University; Robert Satloff, Executive Director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy; and Nathan Brown, Professor of Political Science and International Affairs at George Washington University.

    U.S. government has no strategy to deal with Muslim Brotherhood

    The federal government has no strategy to counter the Muslim Brotherhood at home or abroad, according to the chairwoman of the House panel that oversees counterintelligence and terrorism.

    “The federal government does not have a comprehensive or consistent strategy for dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliated groups in America,” Rep. Sue Wilkins Myrick said during a hearing Wednesday. “Nor does it have a strategy for dealing with the Brotherhood in Egypt or the greater Middle East.”

    The North Carolina Republican is chairwoman of the House Intelligence subcommittee on terrorism, human intelligence, analysis and counterintelligence. Mrs. Myrick said at the hearing that she planned on scheduling closed classified hearings on the Muslim Brotherhood this session with government officials.

    Established in 1928 in Cairo, the Muslim Brotherhood is widely considered the first organization to push for political Islam or Islamism, a movement that seeks to replace civil law with Islamic or Shariah law.
