When I review the names of those who had a role in the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in my memory, over the past half century, especially those who were financially simple, I find that most of them, if not all, had achieved a comfortable financial status, while a well-known minority had made a good fortune, that is apart from what they have achieved in fame besides the social, political and family status.
Despite the religious attributes, members of the Muslim Brotherhood are trying hard to cover themselves; they were always closer to being pragmatic and opportunists than being religious. Being in politics requires them to be opportunists especially that the amount of material and moral temptations, particularly in the oil countries, makes extremism, religious commitment and trust worthiness something laughable. So there is no harm at all, as their doctrines allows them to have some lies and hypocrisy, because it will have more benefit than harm.
So it is not strange to hear opinions or see contradicting stands by the same people during relatively short periods, without those involved feeling any shame or regret, as this is their habit and so it will remain. During the Arab Media Forum, in the presence of our colleague Madhi Al-Khamees, a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood said: “I confirm for the 1000th time, and I will keep confirming that we in Kuwait were no longer Muslim Brotherhood members since the Iraqi Invasion in 1990, and there is no Muslim Brotherhood organization in Kuwait. I am not part of the Muslim Brotherhood, rather I am part of the Islamic Constitutional Movement (ICM).”
Then during a meeting few years later, the same person said, “Our adversaries do not have any adversary other than us, the Muslim Brotherhood faction, or the Islamic Constitutional Movement. Their main concern became the Muslim Brotherhood, bearing in mind that the Muslim Brotherhood does not have any ambition in power in the entire Gulf. Saddam asked us during the invasion to ‘rule’ Kuwait, but we refused.”
Then during an interview by Ahmad Al-Fadhly on Al-Adalah TV channel, a Muslim Brotherhood member, who is also a major businessman, said in an answer about the truth about Saddam demanding the Muslim Brotherhood to govern Kuwait: “No, it did not happen at all, not from me or any other, nor anyone in the Muslim Brotherhood. This is not true, and I challenge anyone who says otherwise. This is untrue!”
We leave it to the reader to look into these contradicting and dangerous statements at the same time. We thank the creator of YouTube who allowed us to keep the statements of those people intact so it can be a testimony, and the links can be sent to anyone who doubts the accuracy of what we mentioned in this article. —Translated by Kuwait Times
