‘Muslim Brothers plotting overthrow of Gulf states’

The Jerusalem Post reports: “Dubai’s chief of police has warned of an ‘international plot’ to overthrow the governments of Gulf Arab countries, saying the region needs to be prepared to counter any threat from Islamist dissidents as well as Syria and Iran.

The comments by Dahi Khalfan, one of the most outspoken security officials in the United Arab Emirates, follow the detention in the UAE since April of at least 20 dissidents, according to relatives of the detainees and activists.

‘There’s an international plot against Gulf states in particular and Arab countries in general…This is preplanned to take over our fortunes,’ Khalfan told reporters at a gathering marking the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

‘The bigger our sovereign wealth funds and the more money we put in the banks of Western countries, the bigger the plot to take over our countries…The brothers and their governments in Damascus and North Africa have to know that the Gulf is a red line, not only for Iran but also for the Brothers as well.’

Most of the detainees since April are Islamists, targeted by an official clampdown amid concern they may be emboldened by the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in other Arab countries such as Egypt…”

Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood Hopes for Islamic State

Israel National News reports: “The Muslim Brotherhood in Syria said that the country post-Assad will be an Islamic state.

Speaking to the Al-Arabiya network, the movement’s deputy leader, Ali Al-Bayanouni, said, ‘You cannot deny the fact that Syria is an Islamic Arab country because most of the people who live in the country are Arab and Muslim, and the existence of non-Muslim minorities does not eliminate the identity of the majority.’

Al-Bayanouni called Syrian President Bashar Assad ‘a criminal and a murderer who must be brought to justice,’ stressing that ‘no one has the authority to pardon the criminals.’ At the same time, despite the evidence of war crimes being committed by rebel forces as well, Al-Bayanouni said he fully supports the rebels.

‘Whoever carries a weapon for self-defense and in order to protect his honor is a hero and deserves recognition, and is not a criminal and therefore will not stand trial,’ he said.

Islamists have gained power in both Tunisia and Egypt following the Arab Spring revolutions that toppled the governments in both countries last year…” (The Muslim Brotherhood of both Egypt and Syria is the most anti-Jewish and anti-Christian organization ever. Notice the language in the report “the existence of non-Muslim minorities does not eliminate the identity of the majority.” We are rapidly approaching the great tribulation period lasting seven years – Revelation 7:14 – a period of slaughter for Jews and Christians by Islam – Matthew 24:9; Revelation 6:9; 13:15; 20:4. Genuine Christians will escape the horrendous times via the rapture — Luke 21:36; Revelation 3:10. That’s how near Christ’s return is – Matthew 24:33. See the next report on anti-Semitism.)

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood blames Sinai attack on Mossad

Haaretz reports: “Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood said on its website that the attack on a police station in Sinai in which 16 policemen were killed ‘can be attributed to Mossad’ and was an attempt to thwart Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.

The statement said Mossad was trying to abort the Egyptian uprising that toppled president Hosni Mubarak last year and that it was ‘imperative to review clauses’ of the agreement between Egypt and Israel.

Egypt branded the Islamist gunmen behind the attack as ‘infidels’ and promised on Monday to launch a crackdown following the massacre that has strained Cairo’s ties with both Israel and Palestinians.

The bloodshed represented an early diplomatic test for Morsi, who took office at the end of June after staunch U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak was overthrown last year in a popular uprising…”
