Primarily, the Project do not propose a support for terrorism, but rather a “project of company which places the group above the individual, the divine authority above human freedom, the text crowned above the profane laws”.
Comes then the very serious question from the relations of the Moslem Brothers with Al-Qaïda and terrorist Islamism: a thing is sure, points out Sylvain Besson, the Brothers firmly condemned the attacks of September 11, 2001 in what they are responsible for the massacre for civil innocent. On the other hand, when one comes to the responsibilities for these attacks, the United States, because of their policy towards the Palestinians amongst other things, is guilty truths. Moreover, Al-Qaradawi puts forth the assumption of an internal plot in the United States, without which these atrocities could not have been made.
Sylvain Besson concludes from his investigation that the speech of the Moslem Brothers is with double edge, since they say yes to the “jihad” and not to terrorism. Concretely, that means that the civil innocent ones should not be attacked, but that the attacks of Hamas against the Israelis are legitimate, since through their conflict with the Palestinians they are the direct enemies of Islam.
Jihad is an Arabic word that means "striving in the way of God." This striving can take a number of forms, including the daily inner struggle to be a better person. However, jihad is often used to refer to an armed struggle fought in defense of Islam.
Evidence from Memri's website also casts doubt on its non-partisan status. Besides supporting liberal democracy, civil society, and the free market, the institute also emphasises "the continuing relevance of Zionism to the Jewish people and to the state of Israel".
That is what its website used to say, but the words about Zionism have now been deleted. The original page, however, can still be found in internet archives.
