UAE Trial Sheds Light on Muslim Brotherhood Tactics

While Qatar has become the Brotherhood’s sugar sheiks, the UAE has chosen to crack down hard on the Muslim Brotherhood. And while these days the odds of the legal system here being used to expose the Brotherhood are slim, the UAE trial is already beginning to expose and reaffirm much of what we knew about how the Muslim Brotherhood operates.

Investigators told the State Security Court in Abu Dhabi on Monday that they overheard the group during secret meetings planning to seize power as the Arab Spring began in 2011, according to reporters present at the trial.

The court heard details of the group’s finances, including stocks, property and commercial companies. The accused owned educational centres for children and adults and had attempted to infiltrate institutions of the state including schools, universities and ministries.

Each of the accused had invested money from Brotherhood membership fees and charity funds to set up commercial enterprises and real estate investments held in their own names to conceal their activities from the state, it was alleged.

This isn’t all that groundbreaking, but it does remind us of how the Brotherhood operates. It launders money through legitimate businesses and sets up Islamic institutions that don’t bear its name, but are run by its operatives. Its members go into business and build political influence that way with the Brotherhood acting like a mafia. Each achievement sets the stage for the next step, from religious organizations to economic organizations and onward into the government.

And finally the Brotherhood uses that infrastructure to take down the country and then take over. The Brotherhood operates covertly, but its strategies never truly change.

    This is the true face of the Brotherhood, it operates just like the Italian Mafia, Muslim Dons and all. The fact of the matter is that as worrisome as it is in the Mid East, Washington is infiltrated and penetrated with ALL their core operatives, even to the point of several high level ones operating out of the White House –….

    Not only that, but Huma Abedin, via her Deputy COS job at State, became one of the biggest foxes in the hen house –
    Be afraid. VERY afraid!

    We also know how the Brotherhood plans to pull off our destruction. Another MB document, this one undated, is called “Phases of the World Underground Movement Plan.” It describes a five-installment program for achieving the triumph of Shariah – together with a status report on the realization of several of the phases’ goals:

    Phase 1: “Discreet and secret establishment of leadership.”

    Phase 2: “Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities. [The MB] greatly succeeded in implementing this stage. It also succeeded in achieving a great deal of its important goals, such as infiltrating various sectors of the Government.”

    Phase 3: “Escalation phase, prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing mass media. Currently in progress.”

    Phase 4: “Open public confrontation with the Government through exercising the political pressure approach. It is aggressively implementing the above-mentioned approach. Training on the use of weapons domestically and overseas in anticipation of zero-hour. It has noticeable activities in this regard.”

    Phase 5: “Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation under which all parties and Islamic groups are united.”

    If any further evidence were needed of the threat posed by the Muslim Brotherhood, consider the comments on Oct. 6 by Mohamed Badie, the Ikhwan’s virulent promoter of Shariah who was installed as its leader (Supreme Guide) last year. According to a translation provided by the indispensable Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Mr. Badie declared: “[Today, the United States] is withdrawing from Iraq, defeated and wounded, and it is on the verge of withdrawing from Afghanistan. [All] its warplanes, missiles and modern military technology were defeated by the will of the peoples, as long as [these peoples] insisted on resistance. Its wealth will not avail it once Allah has had his say, as happened with [powerful] nations in the past. The U.S. is now experiencing the beginning of its end, and is heading towards its demise.”
