The Muslim Brotherhood, a hardline Egyptian Islamic group, is in a constant political battle with the military-backed government over control of Egypt.

It’s unclear what the future holds for the group, and the U.S.  is concerned about the organization’s ties to radical Islam.

The Muslim Brotherhood is challenging the Egyptian government over a new law designed to regulate the number of protests. Muslim Brotherhood leaders see the law as a further crackdown directed mainly at them.

Fox News National Security Analyst KT McFarland asked author Tawfik Hamid about the Muslim Brotherhood’s radical ties.

Hamid is the senior fellow and chair of the study of Islamic Radicalism at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies. He was also a former member of a terrorist Islamic organization Jemaah Islamiya with Ayman Al-Zawaherri, who became later second in command of Al Qaeda.

Hamid says the U.S. should not be fooled into thinking the organization is a moderate group.

“The Muslim Brotherhood works in four stages … preaching … share in power with ours … consolidate power … use violence to enforce Sharia [religious law of Islam],” said Hamid.  “As long as they [Muslim Brotherhood] have not reached stage four many people, especially in the West, couldn’t recognize their threat … because [before then] they see them as a peaceful group.”

Hamid warned, “If you waited more for them [to spread their operations] you will start to see the reality.”

Hamid believes the Muslim Brotherhood is secretly supporting jihadist movements. “They don’t do the dirty work themselves … they can release the jihadists … they do not get engaged themselves in the terrorist acts.”
