The Muslim BrotherhoodStreaming Video - 2013
For anyone seeking insight into how and why a long-outlawed group rose to power in Egypt, this program serves as an enlightening historical snapshot. Viewers explore the tenuous period in which President Mubarak promised "free and honest and transparent" elections in a vain attempt to forestall a whole scale uprising; in which the main opposition party, the Muslim Brotherhood, remained illegal while preparing to begin its protracted journey to power; in which that same organization discarded its long-held slogan "Islam is the Solution" in favor of "Democracy is the Solution" - a broader sentiment that did not necessarily reflect the Muslim Brotherhood's true intentions. Interviews feature prominent Egyptian activists and political figures, including Dr. Ali Abdel Fattah, a senior Muslim Brotherhood official, and Dr. Saad Eddin Ibrahim, one of Egypt's leading democracy campaigners.
