Profile: Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood

To read the full report: Brotherhood of Hate: Muslim Brotherhood's Hatred for Jews and Israel Flourishes in "New" Egypt (PDF).

The overthrow of Hosni Mubarak's regime by the Egyptian people in February 2011 marks a turning point in the political development of the Muslim Brotherhood, the country's largest and best organized religious, social and political movement. Since the upheaval, the Brotherhood has sought to quickly assert its influence and define the role it will play in Egypt's post-revolutionary political system. On June 24, 2012, one of the Brotherhood's very own leaders, Mohamed Morsi, was elected president of Egypt.

Although the group has vowed to promote peaceful co-existence and stability within Egypt by means of fostering better relations between Muslim and Christian citizens, the Brotherhood's leadership continues to articulate its historical and ideological opposition to the existence of the State of Israel and to the 1979 Camp David peace accord between the two countries.
