The Face of the Brotherhood Enemy

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


brotherhoodFor over a hundred years, European and American cities were dotted with cells of left-wing radicals, Socialist and Communist groups who infiltrated more mainstream organizations, assassinated public officials, organized violent protests and detonated bombs in public places.

It was the fear of this churning red enemy that Karl Marx described in the opening of the Communist Manifesto as the specter of Communism haunting Europe.

The red cause has since gone mainstream and its bomb-throwers have become the establishment. The old radicals are parliamentarians and ministers, they head up NGOs and oversee newsrooms. They no longer haunt Europe; instead they rule Europe.

Today a new specter haunts Europe. Unlike the specter of Communism, it isn’t much spoken of and when it is mentioned, it is reduced to vague descriptions that fail to describe, like “Violent Extremism” and “Islamic Radicalism”, implying that the problem is a handful of men in a basement somewhere.

The new Islamic threat is no more reducible to the occasional terrorist cell than the Communist threat could be reduced to the handful of radicals who were willing to set off bombs. The green ghost of Islam haunting European and American cities is at least as deadly as the old red ghost of Communism.

Among the panoply of shades and specters haunting Berlin, Paris, New York, London, Sydney, Toronto and countless others, looms the Muslim Brotherhood.

This new specter is the topic of Erick Stakelbeck’s book, The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy. This book is no mere collection of dry research; instead Erick Stakelbeck delivers a punchy narrative that travels urgently with him at a breakneck pace as he confronts Muslim Brotherhood figures like Tariq Ramadan, traveling to Europe on ghost-busting expeditions to confront the specters in the Western houses that they have taken to haunting.

In vividly retold prose, Stakelbeck intersperses his pungent interviews with Brotherhood bigwigs with background on their activities and the range and breadth of the Muslim Brotherhood network. Like the Communists, the Islamists build up entire networks of front organizations to expand their influence, recruit new followers and funnel money into their operations. It’s a complicated web of deceit that security officials know about, but politicians refuse to deal with because the influence of the front groups has gone too high up the ladder of politics.

The Muslim Brotherhood has become so successful so quickly that many people who hear about the number of its front groups and the pervasiveness of its political influences dismiss them as an implausible conspiracy theory. The Brotherhood, like the Communists before it, is shielded by the seeming improbability of its penetrations, the magnitude of its deceptions and the inconceivable gullibility of its useful idiots.

The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy is an excellent antidote to such an attitude. It’s a book with a personal touch that comprehensively covers the Brotherhood, but tells much of the tale in terms of personal encounters that read like a spy novel, making it an ideal tool for convincing even low-information voters of the true nature of the threat.

From insights into the Obama administration’s obscene embrace of the Brotherhood to meetings with the smooth and sophisticated spokesmen for the Brotherhood’s Western origins in Europe, Stakelbeck tracks down facts and personalities, exposes the violent truth behind the appeaser’s lie of a peaceful political Islam that represses women and non-Muslims with a benevolent smile on its saturnine face.

As the Obama administration sticks to its policy of aiding Muslim Brotherhood takeovers in the Middle East, using political Islamist governments as a supposed bulwark against Al Qaeda Islamic terrorism, The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy reminds us that Al Qaeda would not exist without the Muslim Brotherhood.

Every Al Qaeda leader was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and the organization has its roots in the Brotherhood’s own Egypt. Stakelbeck argues that the September 11 attacks would never have occurred without the existence of the Brotherhood and convincingly shows that the Muslim Brotherhood’s ideology acts as a “gateway drug” to more explicit forms of Islamic terrorism.

This is a phenomenon that we can see even among American front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood; like the Muslim Students Association whose presidents have an unfortunate habit of becoming Al Qaeda terrorists. There would be no explanation for such a startling correlation were it not for the fact that the Brotherhood and its front groups are indeed “gateway drugs” for Islamic terrorism.

Gateway drug might well be an apt description of the Muslim Brotherhood which exists in layers. The deeper one goes into the green Islamist onion, the sharper and more violent the ideology becomes. Its power lies in deception and it is that deception which Stakelbeck tackles admirably in The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy.

A decade ago such a description might have seemed absurd. Even after September 11, when the front groups of the Muslim Brotherhood gained immense power and influence by positioning themselves as the moderate Muslim gatekeepers who could keep Muslim terror in check in return for political power and influence, it might have seemed ridiculous.

And then with the Arab Spring, the political checks written by Western leaders to the Muslim Brotherhood were cashed in a big way as Middle Eastern governments fell and the Brotherhood and its allies took over entire nations. Now as NATO nations are readying to arm the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria, backing its bid to take over yet another country, it would appear that the green specter of Islam has made more progress in a shorter time than the red specter of Communism.

In the face of complacency and collaboration by Western politicians, Erick Stakelbeck delivers a necessary shock to the system with a blunt, open and unsparing look at the Brotherhood’s power and influence, at its cynical operatives, its ruthless goals and the scope of its plans for the free world.

The great tragedies of the twentieth century occurred because of the long delay in recognizing the terrible menace of the rising evils of Nazism and Communism. The Muslim Brotherhood may emerge as their historical counterpart if the free men and women of the twenty-first century do not wake up to the next great enemy whose soldiers already walk our soil and whose leaders give orders in Washington D.C., London and Berlin.

    Chamberlain may have been guilty of a foolish appeasement policy with the Nazis, but he didn’t intentionally enable them, like Obama is doing with the Muslim Brotherhood, and radical Islam in general. We really shouldn’t consider Obama separate from radical Islam. He is its most powerful ally.

    • wildjew

      I believe you are right. Obama is not a “useful idiot.” He is a brother. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and others who support Obama toppling secular-leaning regimes in the Middle East and North Africa, these are useful idiots.

    • logdon

      Chamberlain’s appeasement was driven by the majority who had seen in 1914-1918 what carnage a war with Germany could bring upon us.

      Every village, town and city in Britain still has it’s bronze war memorials. usually a statue and below that an inscribed roster of the dead.

      You read those ancient names which resonate with Anglo Saxon Christian solidarity and the tragic images come flooding.

      Thomas Pickering, Wilfred Armitage, Albert Williams, Alfred Smith, Joseph Wainright, a roll call from history of those bright young patriots, imbued with a love of country and absolute faith in their leaders who were mangled, buried and ripped apart by a juggernaut war machine and are now just names etched into the dead memory of stone and metal.

      Nowhere escaped and because of the Pals Regiment system, whole areas were decimated and the flower of youth removed.

      They reasoned that nothing could be worse than that slaughter and thus delayed the inevitable.

      (There are actually new revisionist historians who suggest that had we not gone to Belgiums aid in 1914 and allowed the Kaiser and Ludendorf to envelope France, the obviously different outcome would have stymied Hitlers rise and thus circumvented World War Two.

      In view of the disgraceful way France and Belgium now treat Britain maybe they are right.

      We saved these ingrates from Shliefen’s Plan and in return we are treated as lackeys to Merkel’s German dominated EU.

      What was it all for?)

      But Obama, Cameron, Merkel, Hollande and co have no such excuses.

      They know nothing of the bitter collective grief which tempered our triumph. The widows and orphans, the brothers and sisters, the nephews and nieces who would never see their beloved kith and kin ever again.

      The European and British leaders may callously blank that heritage but Obama is not and never was a part of that history. He is an outsider, an other, removed at arms length by his heritage, upbringing and ideology.

      To him the West is a stain upon humanity, an ugly pustule of domination to be lanced and removed and we now have the incredible truth of an American President who actually despises America.

      He reinforces it by every action whether his Cairo Speech tilt to Islam, his nation wrecking Affordable Care Act, the abandonment of an Ambassador or his finger flip to the First Amendment via his UN, the future must not belong to the those who slander the prophet of Islam.

      There’s enough evidence in that lot to convict this Benedict Arnold yet Americans and, indeed the world is stupified into passive somnolence. We are mere rabbits in the headlights of his grand designs.

      God help us all.

      • TheOrdinaryMan

        Great post. And history can’t erase the fact that, as you say, we “now have the incredible truth of an American President who actually despises America.” However, America was dragged into WWI by a progressive, Woodrow Wilson, who asked Congress for support, on April 2, 1917. And you can make a strong argument for saying that WWII was caused at least as much by Wilson’s bungling of the Treaty of Versailles, than by anything else.(Wilson was warned not to go to Europe; and to let the Allies work out the treaty by themselves)

      • Ray Burke

        Well said, logdon. I couldn’t agree more. I must regretfully conclude that the fools who made all this possible do not deserve better. I fear we are witnessing the worldwide disintegration of the human race.

      • truebearing

        Eloquently stated….and I believe you hit upon our only hope with your final thought.

    • TheOrdinaryMan

      Yes, Obama is definitely playing for the other side. This is why it’s so important to impeach him.

    • posse 101

      @truebearing:
      excellent comment. and unfortunately so true too.

  • Anamah

    It is shocking to see, even after been slapping in the face, Americans slow and soft reaction.

    Have we sold our Nation?

  • Hermes replica

    It was the fear of this churning red enemy.What is red enemy?

  • TheOrdinaryMan

    Stakelbeck is a great journalist who does credit to his trade. His calm, gracious manner; his indefatigable quest for truth, and his strong faith all contribute to his success. And I’m sure “The Brotherhood” is well worth the purchase price.

  • Ray Burke

    “We have seen the enemy and he is us” !!! We know the enemy. Why in God’s name do we allow him and his retinue to remain in power, adored and pampered like Royalty. We most surely have lost our collective minds.

  • Paul

    Hilary Clinton’s closest adviser is a Muslim brotherhood (sisterhood wing)leader”s daughter Huma Abedin Weiner married to a Jewish politician. Why would the Muslim brotherhood let one of their own marry a Jew? See the shocking answer below :

  • WYNEMA GONZAGOWSKI

    I find it funny how many of the same names I see here from a different article… How many of those same people put down Reza Aslan for being Muslim and writing about Christianity and how many of those same people praise Erick Stakelbeck’s book which was written about Muslim’s by a Christian…

    I am not for, nor against either of these men I just find the hypocritical attitude saddening!

    • braddocksgold

      Observing the current activities of the Muslim Brotherhood is not the same as trying to invalidate the origins of Islam. Your comparison is lame.

      • WYNEMA GONZAGOWSKI

        Take 5 minutes and research books about Islam by Christians… There are a TON of them, then search books on Christianity by Muslims… You will find very few.

        • braddocksgold

          That’s because generally adolescents don’t write books.

          • WYNEMA GONZAGOWSKI

            adolescents… hmmmmm

            Yes Wynski, Much like your fine self.

            You have no idea about anything to do with me,.. Nice way to show your maturity… Making fun of someones name…

            Dearest Wynema,
            “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”.
            I don’t care the least bit about your demographics.
            I do care about your ideology. I am fairly confident
            you are what is called,”Social Justice Progressive”.
            Our university campuses are loaded with them,
            Like unabated vermin. Always ready to destroy
            that which has provided the liberality that enables
            them. No doubt you are part of the Red-Green Alliance.

          • WYNEMA GONZAGOWSKI

            Actually yet again you make unfounded assumptions… But in all honesty I expected no less from you. I am an Independent with Conservative leanings… I believe life begins at conception, I believe we are accountable for our own actions… I do believe that their are ecological consequences to our actions as well.. so maybe a little green… as for the red Hmmmm, that I seriously doubt. Yet again you are showing your prejudice against me… Now what I have done to you I have no idea. Ahhhhh well, as I said before, you are again name calling and insulting which is…
            1. A serious lack of imagination
            2. A serious lack of maturity
            and
            3. A serious lack of …………. (open to your imagination)

          • kikorikid

            Hey Wyn, I initially pointed out your,ad hominum,
            name calling. AND you keep doing it.
            Try putting substance in your arguments rather
            than logical fallacies.

          • WYNEMA GONZAGOWSKI

            Your the one that started name calling in the thread… making fun of my name… Last time… You do not know me, you do not know my politics so your judgement of me is a huge logical fallacy!!! As for substance, try doing it yourself rather than parroting others or making things up yourself.

          • kikorikid

            NO Wynema,
            You did the first name calling by calling everyone
            you disagree with a hypocrite. Go back,read it again.
            I think your inability to carry out an extended
            argument without resorting to ad himinum
            argument comes from the campus crowd you
            listen too. You claim conservative values but
            argue by/for/as a leftist.

          • WYNEMA GONZAGOWSKI

            What I said was “I find it funny how many of the same names I see here from a different article… How many of those same people put down Reza Aslan for being Muslim and writing about Christianity and how many of those same people praise Erick Stakelbeck’s book which was written about Muslim’s by a Christian…
            I am not for, nor against either of these men I just find the hypocritical attitude saddening!”

            So, this is what you are talking about, my horrible crime… That I find the fact that people will put down a Muslim for writing about Christ yet feel it is fine for a Christian to write about Islam… Stating a fact that this type of attitude is hypocritical… This is why you attack me??? It is hypocritical… I never stated a specific person, I never attacked a specific person, I stated a fact about a situation. If you took this personally perhaps you need to look withing yourself. Also, I do not have the time to “hang out” with anyone, I go to school taking an average of 15 to 17 credits per semester, have 2 children still in school, one in honor’s high school classes as well as a husband at home who has serious health issues and caring for my Father who has Parkinson’s Disease… Time is not a luxury I can afford. My “spare” time, I come to places like this. Call it stress relief measures… I try and put the “other side” of a story that people ignore into the mix… Rarely is it received with open arms as exhibited by your demeanor.

            Now as to “GREENS and GAYS” fascists eh??? no tolerance and quick to attack. I have been searching hard since I read your post well over 7 hours ago…

            1. I am having difficulty finding more than a few hate crimes committed by homosexuals specifically against heterosexuals… Could you please give me your factual information on these statistics???

            2. As for heterosexual hate crimes against homosexuals…..

            In 2004, the FBI reported that 15.6% of hate crimes reported to police were founded on perceived sexual orientation.Sixty-one percent of those attacks were against gay men, 14% against lesbians, 2% against heterosexuals and 1% against bisexuals, while attacks against LGBT people at large made up 20%. Violence based on perceived gender identity was not recorded in the report.

            The FBI reported that for 2006, hate crimes against gays increased to 16% from 14% in 2005, as the percentage of total documented hate crimes across the U.S. The 2006 annual report, released on November 19, 2007, also said that hate crimes based on sexual orientation are the third most common type, behind race and religion.

            In 2008, 17.6% of hate crimes were based on the victim’s perceived sexual orientation. Of those crimes, 72.23% were violent in nature. 4,704 crimes were committed due to racial bias and 1,617 were committed due to sexual orientation. Of these, only one murder and one forcible rape were committed due to racial bias, whereas five murders and six rapes were committed based on sexual orientation.

            Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney (DDA) Jay Boyarsky attributed a surge in anti-gay hate crimes, from 3 in 2007 to 14 in 2008, to controversy over Proposition 8.However, the DDA cautioned against reading too much from small statistical samples, pointing out that the vast majority of hate incidents do not get referred to the District Attorney’s office.

            In 2011, the FBI reported 1,572 hate crime victims targeted based on a sexual orientation bias, making up 20.4% of the total hate crimes for that year. Of the total victims, 56.7% were targeted based on anti-male
            homosexual bias, 29.6% were targeted based on anti-homosexual bias, and 11.1% were targeted based on anti-female homosexual bias.

            Violent acts against LGBT persons

            After the Civil war the Government passed the first Hate crime Law in America. Recently, in 2009 sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, and disability were added to the categories covered by the law. According to ( Stotzer,2012) these crimes are more common among homosexual men and the transgendered community, because most hate crimes are committed by heterosexual men.

Sixty-one percent of those attacks were against gay men, 14% against lesbians, 2% against heterosexuals and 1% against bisexuals, while attacks against LGBT people at large made up 20%.[2] Violence based on perceived gender identity was not recorded in the report.

          That’s because Muslims in general have little interest in sincerely learning about other religions or cultures, or much of anything outside Islam or whatever serves their practical needs. According to Islamic doctrine, everyone and everything outside of Islam belongs to the “House of War” and must be conquered and/or destroyed. It’s an attitude that’s not very conducive to serious (or honest) research and writing about Christianity.

      Hey Wynski, Get a clue. Aslan is a propagandist of the
      first order. Stekalbeck’s book is investigative/descriptive
      journalism. You are a leftist hack,always attack,attack,
      attack,Ad Homenum attacks forever. You expose
      your hackness and NEVER win an argument.

      • WYNEMA GONZAGOWSKI

        Again with the immaturity of making fun of my name… Aslan is a scholar… What are Stakelbeck’s educational credentials??? Again, you have no idea who I am and because I state something you disagree with you revert to childhood and make fun of my name… I am not a leftist you are uninformed… I am an Independent with Conservative leanings… Unlike you, I am not trying to “win an argument” I am just stating simple facts… If you cannot handle the facts then just be a good little boy and go away.

  • kikorikid

    Whynni, NO,I said I was done. Believe it!

    • WYNEMA GONZAGOWSKI

      Again with the making fun of my name… A broken record for sure!!! This is the typical response of someone who has discovered they were wrong and cannot admit it…

      All I have left to say to you is “How smooth must be the language of the whites, when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong like right.”
