How Do Other Arabs Feel about Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood?

It’s another lie by the Jews and their friends that all of the other Arabs hate Hamas. It’s not really true. Some of the regimes don’t like them simply because they are the Muslim Brotherhood, and these regimes have MB issues in their countries. In particular, this is the case in Bahrain, the UAE, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia.

The main competitor for power in the Gulf is the Muslim Brotherhood. They’ve been locked out of politics there for a long time. It’s not a case of the MB being worse Islamists than the rulers. They’re probably about the same. They’re both Islamists. It’s just that they’re competition for the regimes.

The MB won an election in Egypt and the country dissolved into chaos. There was a military coup by a secular military officer named Sisi. Huge crowds engaged in sit-ins in public places. The security forces came in and opened fire on them, killing a lot of people. So the MB is hated by the government of Egypt, but they won 75 per cent of the only election that allowed them to run, so the people are with the MB. They’re probably with Hamas too because is simply the MB.

I’m not aware that Morocco, Algeria, Sudan, Lebanon, Oman, or Yemen have any issues with the MB.

They’re probably seen as Sunni rebels in Iraq, and a lot of them probably joined ISIS and Al Qaeda.

In Syria, the MB has always been the main opposition group. They rebelled in Hama in 1983 and elder Assad put it down with great violence. The MB is outlawed there and the punishment for being a member is the death penalty. I understand that the MB was the main group behind the Syrian rebels, and they are probably still the main force, though disguised as other groups. So Assad hates the Syrian MB but he gets on well with the Palestinian MB, Hamas. On the other hand, the Syrian MB, like the Egyptian MB, is extremely radical. The problem with cracking down on these groups

The situation with the MB is complicated in Libya. There are two factions ruling the country, one in the east and one in the west. I think the one in the west is Muslim Brotherhood connected. The one in the east is not, and they hate the MB. On the other hand, they’re just as Islamist if not more. So there’s an MB problem in Libya.

The situation in Jordan is different. The king is a dictator. However, there is a Parliament that retains some powers still. The Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood wins majorities in elections and has a majority stake in the Parliament. I don’t think the king hates them as much as he fears them.

The largest political party in Tunisia is the Muslim Brotherhood. However, this branch is one of the most moderate and democratic Islamist party in the whole world. Nevertheless they have caused a lot of panic among secular people as Tunisia has a long reputation as being a pretty secular country in an Arab world context.

On the other hand, Qatar, Turkey, Palestine, and half of Libya are pro-Muslim Brotherhood. For whatever reason, Erdogan likes them. The MB half-government in Libya has heavy Turkish support. The other side is being armed by the UAE because they hate the MB, though the UAE is just as Islamist as the MB.

Qatar being pro-MB is probably why they host Hamas there. Qatar being pro-MB and also pro-Iran, which almost seems a contradiction, is the main reason that the other Gulf states locked Qatar out of trade recently to try to take out the regime.

  1. I’m not sure if it is some issue with my device, but I noticed that your recent posts usually have paragraphs that appear to suddenly cut short.

    Putting this part of the post:

    “The MB won an election in Egypt and the country dissolved into chaos. There was a military coup by a secular military officer named Sisi. Huge crowds engaged in sit-ins in public places. The security forces came in and opened fire on them, killing a lot of people. So the MB is hated by the government of Egypt, but they won 7 ”

    Won 7 what? Seven times? The fact it doesn’t end with a period gives me the impression it’s not mean to end like that.

    Taking other example from your previous post about the prankster with the Israeli flag in Iran:

    “They hate all those people as inferior Arabs anyway.

    The truth is that in the 2019 riots, polls showed 8

    So all of those riots are caused by 1”

    Not sure about the meaning of 8 and 1. Another thing I found curious is that those errors seem to occur around numbers.

    I just wanted to confirm if it’s some issue with how my browser displays it or something.

    1. The page is corrupted somehow! This happens a lot. The MB won 75% of the vote.

      It’s supposed to say:

      The truth is that in the 2019 riots, polls showed 85% of the population opposed the rioters. 78% of the population supported the system. From 57-67% support aid to the Palestinians, Hezbollah, and the Houthis. The Houthis are the lowest at 57% and the other two are at 2/3 support. I have not seen any recent polls showing what this support looks like right now, but it’s not unreasonable to think that it’s not a whole lot different than four years ago.

      So all of those riots are caused by 15% of the population of Iran! That seems ridiculous until you realize that 15% of the adult population of Iran means 7 million people. If you have 7 million people rioting, they can cause a lot of damage.

      Any post with numbers in it gets corrupted once you publish it. Not always but in a lot of cases.

      Your browser is fine. But the software is a bowzer.
