Former MB member uncovers the group's ‘anti-state strategy’ in 2018

Thu, Mar. 8, 2018
CAIRO – 8 March 2018: Former Muslim Brotherhood (MB) member Khaled al-Zafarani predicted, on Wednesday, the end of the MB group, after revealing the group’s anti-state plan.

In an interview with Wael al-Ebrashi, Zafarani said that the MB causes people to think about them as a terrorist group because they justify terror attacks and do not denounce “takfiris”.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s anti-state strategy, according to Al-Ebrashi, entails the following:

1- Discrediting people who are very close to President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

2- Showing that the future of Egypt is risky and unclear.

3- Addressing economic, political, media, judicial and ethical breakdown in Egypt.

4- Revealing media defamation of opposition parties mainly the MB organization.

5- Writing humanitarian and news stories on how people are living in poor conditions.

6- Exposing how the authority is diverting people’s attention from core issues through football and entertainment programs in general.

7- Starting a Facebook page and naming it after the MB’s campaign, “Nothing left to cry over”. It is one of numerous campaigns reportedly launched by the MB group in attempt to drive a wedge between people and the regime.

8- Writing Facebook posts against the regime, and spreading campaign stickers in public places and transportation.

9- Spray-painting the well-known revolutionary phrase “get out” along desert, agricultural and international coastal roads. Egyptian rebels chanted the same phrase against former President Hosni Mubarak during the January 25 revolution.

10- Organizing marches against the regime inside and outside the country.



Commenting on the MB’s plan, Zafarani said that the group is using the same ways and techniques it has always used to persuade people. The group recognized that Islamic discourse was no longer effective, according to Zafarani, so they shifted to a political one. “The end is nearing for the MB group,” Zafarani stated.

Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi came into power in 2012 following the first presidential election to take place after the January 25 Revolution.

Following Massive street demonstrations that started in June 30, 2013, Morsi was ousted on July 3, 2013.

Former MB leader Tharwat al-Kherbawy, who split from the group in 2002 said in an interview that “the Brotherhood is an organization with a religious background, a belief system, and an idea of a homeland that differs from that of the majority of Egyptians.

Even their make-up is different from that of the rest of Egyptians; it is as if you were trying to mix oil with water knowing how impossible that is. Therefore, I realized that they would go into a violent conflict with the Egyptian people, and when they held power, I was certain that it couldn't last for more than one year.”
