The Muslims can say anything that they want to say, but the proposal from the Brotherhood is the SAME as an ISLAMIC state. What they fail to mention is that it’s not just Egypt that they are referring to, it’s all the states of Muslims.
Islam doesn’t recognize states or borders. This is why they say that they are not in support of a THEOCRATIC “government.” In that they are not lying, but they ARE deceiving the WEST. They are not proposing a STATE, because Islam doesn’t recognize “STATES.” States means that there are borders. Islam doesn’t recognize borders, which is what gave Muhammad the right to go invading all the Middle Eastern lands and killing and marauding through them. It’s deception. A play on words. They know how to use the art of words to deceive.
EGYPT – Muslim Brotherhood says that no Christians or women would run for President and they will be “creating a “Supreme Ulama Council” – a body of religious figures who would review executive decisions to ensure they comply with Islamic law.”
Al-Qaeda’s Zawahiri Tells Egyptians to Establish Islamic State
By Vivian Salama – Feb 20, 2011 7:12 AM CT
Al-Qaeda’s second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri urged Egyptians to revive Islamic rule and criticized Hosni Mubarak as a “modern-day pharaoh” in remarks that came before the former Egyptian president was toppled.
“The Egyptian regime is in fact a repressive regime that relies on brutality and rigged elections while the Islamic system is consultative and seeks to achieve justice,” the Egyptian militant leader said in an audio recording posted on a website used by Islamist groups including al-Qaeda.
Mubarak was ousted Feb. 11 after 18 days of anti-government protests that demanded political and economic reforms. Al- Qaeda’s Saudi-born leader Osama bin Laden and Zawahiri have often condemned the Mubarak regime for its ties to Israel and the U.S. and urged Muslims to remove U.S.-backed rulers.
“The reality of Egypt is the reality of deviation from Islam,” Zawahiri, an Egyptian, said in the recording, part of a documentary by al-Qaeda’s media arm As-Sahab titled: “A message of Hope and Good Tidings to Our Folk in Egypt.”
“Secularism entered our countries through military occupation, oppression and massacres,” he said. “Western secularism is animus to Islam and supportive to Zionism.”
The production, which is 34 minutes and 40 seconds in length, was made during the Islamic calendar month that ended Feb. 4. The rebellion started Jan 25.
