An op-ed written by a member of the Muslim Brotherhood was published in the NY Times this week, per IJR.
And just as one would expect, the editorial denies claims that the Muslim Brotherhood incites extremism despite well-founded facts that prove it’s tied directly to Hamas, a terrorist organization.
Check it out:
We have long heard that violent groups were “spawned” by the Muslim Brotherhood or were our “offshoots.” This is wildly misleading. In the cases where people did leave the Muslim Brotherhood to embrace violence, they did so specifically because they found no path in our philosophy, vision of society or movement for such extremism.
A great many of these extremists — if not all — consider us apostates and politically naïve. This is not an issue as simple as distaste for our political naïveté, but is in fact recognition that our philosophy renders their extremist ideology irrelevant.
IJR truly said it best, when the Review’s writer noted:
With all the lunacy chatter on the Left about how the media is “normalizing Trump” or “normalizing white supremacy” or “normalizing racism, sexism, xenophobia, etc.,” it’s fair to describe this op-ed in the Times as “normalizing terrorism.”
Or rather, by the NYT enabling the Muslim Brotherhood to spread its propaganda, it is normalizing the Brotherhood’s goal of ‘civilization jihad’ in America. The piece is written by a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, so obviously the author paints his organization as holier-than-thou.
The fact that this was published in the most widely-distributed newspaper in the United States—and without hardly any acknowledgement by any other media—is alarming on a whole new level.
