First Egypt, then Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and UAE blacklisted the Muslim Brotherhood…now Kuwait wants to ban the Brotherhood, too
Geez, what’s next – making friends with Israel?
Global MB Watch (h/t Jim Y) An Arab business publication has reported that a Kuwaiti MP has called for the country to outlaw the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. According to an Arabian Business.com report, Nabil Al Fadhel said the Brotherhood in Kuwait were the most dangerous because they helped finance branches in other states:
July 13, 2014 A Kuwaiti MP has called for the country to outlaw the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation, in line with fellow Gulf states Saudi Arabia and the UAE. According to Arabic daily Al Seyassah, Nabil Al Fadhel said the group’s members in Kuwait were the most dangerous branch of the pan-Arab organisation because they helped finance branches in other states.
The Brotherhood has been banned in some Gulf states, which oppose it, but it continues to be supported by Qatar, while the Kuwaiti rulers have allowed the group to operate within its borders but without a role in politics. Since the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood leader in Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, a year ago, hundreds of the group’s supporters there have been sentenced to death.
Al Fadhel was quoted as saying that Kuwait should follow in the footsteps of its neighbours by banning the group, which in that country is led by Mubarak Al Duwailah.”
What about the United States? Are we going to be the only country that not only hasn’t banned the Muslim Brotherhood, but has it entrenched in our own goverment?
