Muslim Brotherhood Position after UK Outlaws Hamas
The Muslim Brotherhood members and sympathizers, who are living in the United Kingdom, are facing a new challenge that further weakens the already falling structure of their organization.
Last week, Conservative Member of Parliament, Priti Patel, announced that, in her capacity as the Secretary of the British Home Office, she has “taken action to proscribe Hamas in its entirety.”
Patel justified the move as integral to the British government’s commitment to tackling extremism and terrorism wherever it occurs. “Hamas has significant terrorist capability, including access to extensive and sophisticated weaponry, as well as terrorist facilities, and it has long been involved in significant terrorist violence. Hamas commits, participates, prepares for and promotes and encourages terrorism;” she stated.
Hamas is one of the militia wings of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been operating in Gaza for more than forty decades. Hamas has a shameful record of violent atrocities, not only against Israelis, but also against the helpless Palestinians inside Gaza, where Hamas controls the highest political power.
