The Muslim Brotherhood is not just antithetic to Western countries but also to Muslim states that wish to remain sovereign. Yoram Ettinger writes, “President Biden is about to reembrace the Muslim Brotherhood in the mold of the Obama/Biden Administration in defiance of all pro-US Arab countries, which consider the Muslim Brotherhood a clear and present, existential terrorist threat.” He points out that the Brotherhood’s core ideology is to establish a “universal Islamic society; replacing Western global domination and submitting itself to Allah and the Quran, while rejecting/toppling all national (Muslim and non-Muslim) regimes via politics, violence and martyrdom.” The Brotherhood has a veneer of non-violence. It may seem to conform to western ideas of political administration. In reality, it holds firm to its vision of a universal adherence to sharia law, with Islam as the religion to which all must conform. Nevertheless, the current Biden administration seems to see only the veneer. This is unlikely to help stabilize an already unstable Middle East.
